But, but, the liberal/prog media said the end was near and that fear now reigns over hope.
The reaction to this should be interesting.
Not really. It's a medical classification on how they treat the disease that has little to do with the general population. A high consequence means a high mortality rate. The most well known disease of that type is rabies, which is essentially 100% fatal if left untreated. I think that in the entirety of recorded medical history there has been one person who got rabies, didn't get treated right away and survived.
Another HCID would be Ebola, very dangerous and, if you remember the pictures, they had to dress up like they were going on a moon walk to even go near someone who was infected.
Coronavirus is highly contagious but most people will recover from it, even if they don't see a doctor. That is why it got downgraded.
Mark for tomorrow.
Their NHS has ordered blood cancer patients and those immune compromised to not leave their house for 12 weeks. This was texted Tuesday to over a million of their people that they need to adhere to these rules .
Interesting but it’s also interesting what diseases do make the list.
Argentine haemorrhagic fever (Junin virus)
Bolivian haemorrhagic fever (Machupo virus)
Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF)
Ebola virus disease (EVD)
Lujo virus disease
Marburg virus disease (MVD)
Severe fever with thrombocytopaenia syndrome (SFTS)
Andes virus infection (hantavirus)
Avian influenza A H7N9 and H5N1
Avian influenza A H5N6 and H7N7
Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)
Nipah virus infection
Pneumonic plague (Yersinia pestis)
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)*
Short and very nasty list.
Under their guidelines, only 2 hospitals can treat HCID patients. This allows patients to be treated at all facilities.
In the end, it’s not hard to understand why the liberal MSM is avoiding reporting on this. If it is bad news, they will trumpet it.
Probably just some kind of cost cutting measure for their socialized medicine system.
Given the checklist that it is now failing, I would say they have mislabeled the category.
BTW, anyone who’d like a laugh...scroll down the info at the link and look at how many of the illnesses listed have a geographical location in the name.
Can’t be true - too many on FR seem oblivious as they keep trying to use isolated cases to try to say that those who keep saying it’s like the Flu (even though most of us said, rightly so, that the best precautions were to do what one would do to avoid the Flu during its season) so they can “be right” about their mindless panic to the point of caring not a whit about the Constitution any more...
OF course, this is based on actual data, so crickets and tumbleweeds.
More information is available about mortality rates (low overall)
Well the media will go crazier can’t pimp fake news.going to be kicking a lot of dogs and drinking early today.
