When bartering replaces currency then starvation will become the new normal. This world cannot feed itself on a barter economy, just as this modern world cannot function as a medieval village. The great worldwide decreases in famine and extreme poverty over the last four decades is only made possible by a robust world economy. Plunging back into modes of subsistence living would be a death sentence for millions of the most vulnerable. Specialization of labor, and trade, are the engines of our prosperity. One should not be too eager to toss that aside unless a life of hard labor for a meager survival is the goal.






Priorities can quickly change.



I feel fortunate to be surrounded by many choices of seafood,good turnip ground and wood product all around me.Good for boat building and homes.



Something like this could be the biggest "back to the land" movement of all time.I can live a good life trading wood for fish and building a good squash barn.



I find people to be very flexible to whatever situation is thrown at them when painted into a corner.



We have a durable inner strength that we might not even realize,yet.

This thread is about future predictions......so I'll make this one.....



This years ( 2020 ) world wide mortality rate will be lower than the normal estimated average mortality rate of 7.7 per 1000 ( people per year )....regardless of Covid19.

Yes, I could see that being the case.  For one thing, certain countries are hiding information on people who are dying ...to the tune of many hundreds of thousands, some are saying.  So even people who would normally be reported as dying are somehow not being charted.



But also, the global shutdown/shelter-in-place/quarantine actions are drastically reducing things like car accidents, workplace accidents, and even the transmission of other "normal" diseases like influenza.  The reduction in air pollution is reducing some of the normal deaths of people who have breathing issues.  A lot of lives that would normally have been lost will be saved through these shutdowns, irrespective of COVID-19.

I sincerely doubt it.  Once this virus has passed, so will the changes that are now being made and people will heave a great sigh of relief and go back to what they were doing 'before Coronavirus".  Just my take, for what it's worth.

Masks of any sort (even a swatch of cotton) can help keep droplets from spraying as we speak.I think it best to not try and think of ways to not over-protect everyone.

When tests and serums catch up the masks can disappear.

It seems relatively clear to me that before SARS face masks were very rare in China and that after SARS they were comparatively common. I don't think the US is less apt to change how it does things than China.

Masks were fairly common in many parts of China 25+ years ago.  The air is so dirty from pollution that most people work masks when outdoors to avoid breathing in the smog.

BanjoLink - Posted - 03/31/2020:  11:03:03


I don't understand why we have been told that masks are not effective against getting the virus and are only good for not spreading the virus (or cold or flu virus, etc.). If that were the case why is it so important for healthcare workers to wear masks. It seems like to me and common sense would say that it effective for both. Why were we told that it is not effective to protect us in the first place?

Quite simply, they lied to the public in order to protect the limited supply for healthcare workers.  As I have been saying for the last two weeks, it's only a matter of time before they finally admit that masks do help contain the spread.  Some experts are now coming out and admitting it, but the CDC is still holding the party line for now.

For what it's worth, there has been so much misinformation and disinformation out there about a virus that nobody really knows anything about, that I take everything said with a huge grain of salt.



The face mask may not be effective against you GETTING the virus, but perhaps it will help by lessening the chances of you breathing in those little nasty devils that cause it.   There are things you touch and places you go that you don't need/wear a mask and perhaps those could be the cause of someone getting the virus.   I'd rather be safe than sorry.

The CDC and the FDA are going to emerge from this with very tarnished reputations. They have bungled at every step with deadly consequences.

The health authorities everywhere are desperate for masks. For that reason it makes good sense to downplay the necessity for the average person to have a stock of masks for trips to the supermarket. If we had a massive surplus of masks I believe they would encourage us to wear them . Even if a mask allowed a 5% leak it would still cut down the odds of sucking in saliva droplets from every direction.

And of course, the CDC is only going to admit that we should all be wearing masks AFTER they've gotten what they need to protect their own. Once they tell the public to wear masks, it'll be Katy Bar the Door. The public will be panic-buying masks that were already impossible to find, and there will be chaos as people fist-fight over the few that can be found.

Our response to this entire crisis has been, quite frankly, childish and incompetent. We have defied common sense from the very get-go and now people are paying the price with their lives.

Nobody wears masks during Flu season, and 20,000 plus people a year die of the Flu. The numbers from the coronavirus are just not there to warrant the mass hysteria perpetrated by the media, at the direction of people who stand to make billions off the scare. Namely the Drug and Vaccine Industry.

Does that include all the people who were already dying, ones with cancer, kidney disease, heart failure, diabetes, etc. that just happen to test positive for the virus, which has been around for years.  8 Billion people in the World and 28,000 have supposedly died of a virus. I'm not worried about a thing, other than the deliberate restructuring of the Worlds economy, and if they are so stupid as to try and implement a manadatory Vaccine.

Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist that CBC TV regularly uses as an "expert" said that the likelihood of the virus infecting people that pass near each other [eg. normal jogging or walking] is "extremely low" [and he repeated it: "extremely low"],   because the virus isn't just floating around  filling up airspace. Granted, he wasn't talking about guys horking and coughing in each others' faces.... and he continues to endorse the handwashing and "physical distance" guidelines.



I haven't heard any numbers re. the proportion of positive cases that are passed as spittle-borne rather than airborne, but I'm guessing the former has it by a fair margin.    IF that's the case, then anything that interferes with the free passage of spittle droplets should help.  If a tissue or one's elbow helps, why not scrub sponges??

1) Health care workers are in an environment where there is a high density of the virus, not even close to what the general public is exposed to.



2) Masks work both ways, they protect the worker, and they protect the patient from the worker.  For the general public, if you are sick, and wear a mask, you are protecting the rest of the public.



3) Most people have neither the knowledge how, or the equipment to sanitize their masks.  Therefore, if they are exposed, the mask is not contaminated and when the get to their car, or their home, they spread the virus.  Worse yet, when they put the mask back on they risk further contaminating themselves.

I've never seen makeshift hospitals built during a flu season.  I've never seen doctors and nurses cry during a flu outbreak.  When was the last time you saw navy ship hospitals being used in a civilian port to take on the overload?  You are right, that the number of dead (so far) is a fraction of what die annually from the flu, but the rapid rate of sickness, and the numbers requiring hospitalization is much, much higher than for the flu.  Also, when you recover from the flu, you recover with very little, if any, lasting issues.  With this virus you have permanent lung tissue damage, and may permanently lose the ability to smell and taste.  The number sick is doubling every 3 days.  I don't know at what point you thing people should be concerned, but talk to the governors of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Washington, Louisiana, and California. Talk to people in Italy, Spain, France, Iran and Germany.

From the article "Such DIY cloth masks would potentially lower the risk that the wearer, if infected, would transmit the virus to other people. Current CDC guidance is that healthy people don’t need masks or face coverings."



So it is to stop, or slow, the sick from spreading, not to keep you from getting.  Same reason you wear a mask if you have a cough or cold and go to the Dr. Office.  To protect them.

Not sure where you are getting your numbers.  So far in the USA,  for this month alone, 3700+ people have died from the corona virus.  That is about three time the rate that you mention in your post.  Exactly how much worse does it have to be for you before the "numbers are there."

Thanks Dave.  I do and have understood all of that.  What I didn't understand is why we were told otherwise.  Maybe it would have been better to have been given an explanation as to why the masks would not be effective if worn improperly and that it is better not to have a mask at all than to use them in an risky manner.  Maybe they didn't think we could grasp that concept.

Indeed the idea to protect "them," [i.e. the people that aren't infected] makes sense.  As the mask shortage gets more pronounced, health care workers are stating in no uncertain terms that they need the masks to "keep them[selves] from getting the virus."    My read is that masks worn by healthy people [eg. medical personnel] will help them from getting it, AND masks worn by afflicted people will help them from spreading it.    My logic says that [shortages aside], it would be good for BOTH to wear masks during epidemics.     But... my usual disclaimer... I've been wrong before.



Edit: I very rarely see any patients in the clinic waiting room wearing a mask.  Lest my memory be failing me, I checked with my wife... she has seen about as many [few?] as I have ...or her memory is equally questionable.

We were told not to wear them cuz they were ineffective because they didn’t want people buying and hoarding them. Then there would really be a shortage for hospital workers. imho

I took our cat to the vet last Friday & the young lady met me in the parking lot with gloves & a mask on.



The whole time she was readjusting it & touching her face with her gloves! 



People that compare it to the flu are ill informed & I see karma has come up & bit a few naysayers in the butt!



I see they are still telling people how to wash your hands! Ha! Ha! Where have you been? Living under a rock?!



It's like the first cold snap where it's all over the news. HOW TO STAY WARM!!! Dress in layers! Avoid bare skin! Blah Blah Blah! I guess some people are just that stupid!



Same thing with the first heat wave! This all stuff you should have learned in childhood! 



It might just a be a good way to weed the herd.

Bubba, did you think to ask her if she was wearing it for her protection, or yours?    cheeky



[...or maybe the cats'?]
