Pandemic threat is real
 
Not just Bill Gates, we are overdue by historical standards.

Gates is a compete ass, but like a broken clock, both are right a couple times a day.

Food, water, and maintain a 300 foot ZERO contact rule until it runs its course.
No warm host, no virus.

Vaccines or pandemic?????

Mother nature has a much better way to handle this shit than gates and crew.

Yep, it's when, not if.

I got the flu last year. i thought it was a bad cold as I had no fever. Then I read that the flu doesn't necessarily cause a fever. I went to work and went on with my life. Luckily I don't think I got anyone else sick, but I always try to take precautions, even when only sick with a cold. I think I would have taken the time off had I known it was the flu.

Fascinating premise. Where did you earn your PhD in microbiology?

I saw that the bird flu had made the just to humans in China this week, it will get to us sooner or later.

The "flu" damn near killed me a couple of years ago, and I'm pretty healthy, weird thing is though when I pulled my medical record from the va, they have it listed as an "unknown viral infection"

(CNN)Experts say we are "due" for one. When it happens, they tell us,*it will probably have a greater impact on humanity than anything else currently happening in the world.

Such is the case with a highly lethal flu pandemic. And when it comes, it will affect every human alive today.

sharkey April 20, 2017 08:21

trouble in more places than one.
 
Ive read about that avian <bird> flu, and once it mutates, which it does, should it mutate into a human host strain all bets are off. It could easily be worse than the black death that Europe went through where 1 of 2 died. Poultry inspectors will destroy thousands of birds in another area, just because the wind is blowing their way... this is how deadly this stuff is.

I saw the pics of the Venezuala protests concerning their gov'ts socialist agenda and how their society has totally failed. Consider this for a second. Their money is worthless. There is no food. Their hospitals cannot treat anything because they are totally out of antibiotic compounds, dressings, sutures and narcotics. There is no water treatment. Electricity is available only a few hours a day. Refrigeration? Doesnt matter when there isnt anything to keep cold.

The Russians were supposed to give them something, and maybe the US will too, but to my knowledge we have been told to stay out after the Kimberly Clark factory in VZ was taken over by their govt. This was an American Company that was seized by the VZ Gov't. The saving grace was Citibank holds the VZ gold, and cashed 1/3 of it in to pay Kimberly Clark whatever the factory was worth, whether Venezuala liked it or not.

The other thing that nobody is talking about is where do you think these people are going to go? Sure surrounding countries will take some refugees. Trump better get moving on that wall is all I can say. Problem is all the VZ refugees that make it to US soil, will all say they are fleeing their Socialist Gov't and then its come on in...sure bring your cholera, pest and God knows what with you so we all get it.

sharkey April 20, 2017 09:00

VZ Government has seized a 'GM' plant.
 
Looks like VZ seized a US Clorox factory in 2014. Article says Ford wrote off $800 million on a new factory built by them in VZ that was also taken over by VZ.. So that makes it Kimberly-Clark, Clorox, Ford, and GM. Im sure there are many more that we dont know about.

Wonder if the US Companies ever thought about Mexico doing something like this to them?

Isnt this an act of war on the part of VZ?

I guess since Citibank has all their gold maybe not. Wonder what the value of that gold is? Article date is April 19, 2017...

Screw vaccines and antibiotics. never had vaccines and never had flu or anything worse than a small cold. I could count on one hand the number of times I have been to a doctor. 2 of which were the ER.

With Clorox? Can a country get into a war with a company?

As to the US going to war over a privately owned chemical plant a company was stupid enough to locate in an unstable foreign country...

To the original topic, there have been pandemics that would have killed millions but public health agencies have gotten very good at isolating and preventing mass spread. Smallpox is not going to kill anyone on this board since the vaccine campaigns have essentially wiped out the disease. It could come back if we stop taking the vaccine since there appears to be some wipe-your-ass-with-your-left-hand-eat-with-your-right areas where it still exists.

You've been very lucky, blessed with good genes.
I'm old enough, ugh, to remember when polio ruled the land and caused panic and despair among the masses of citizens in this country.
Also old enough to remember when the polio vaccine was made available to everyone.
Our town shut down and everyone lined up for a day in advance to get their dose of the polio vaccine.
I also worked in areas with small pox, again old enough to have been through that shit.
Again, people cried with joy, mothers with small children who they knew would not be killed by small pox once they received that vaccine smiled from ear to ear.

People used to die from STD's, then antibiotics stopped that shit cold.
TB ran rampant, killing millions, antibiotics stopped that crap.
TB, smallpox, polio, etc, all stopped from vaccines and antibiotics.
Pneumonia vaccines save millions from early death today.

Modern surgery, would not happen without antibiotics, saving millions upon millions of people every day.

So yea, antibiotics and vaccines are bad, no they are not.

Another plague hits, people will again line up for days in advance to get their dose of the vaccine that stops it from killing them and their love ones.

What worries me more than a bird flu pandemic is the idea that we're entering a "post-antibiotic" world where our antibiotics no longer treat the simple ailments that left unchecked, will kill you. Imagine that cut you got working the shop becoming infected, and there are no longer any antibiotics that will knock out the infection, and then you die of septic shock once the staph infection overtakes your immune system. According to scientists, this is a very real concern.

However, as antibiotics don't generate nearly as much revenue as limp dick pills, opioids, and psoriasis treatments, Big Pharma doesn't really have any next generation antibiotics in the pipeline right now so if we wake up and discover our miracle Penicillin and Tetracycline derivatives no longer work...we're fugked.

Friend was over a week ago, eating me out of house and home, :sad: and he's a GP MD.
Was looking thru my surgical bag and saw the stuff I have for amputations and also a reprint of an old 1865 surgical manual.
Conversation moved into amputations when antibiotics no longer work.
As in, cut off the hand, fingers, arms, legs or die.
His eyes got real wide, real fast.
Before antibiotics, it was a common practice.
Soap, water, heavy leather gloves, are your friends when antibiotics no longer work.
Gasoline also not a bad way to disinfect wounds, kinda kills everything.:uhoh:
We end up back in meat cleaver medicine, a lot of people are not going to be amused.
And sadly, its coming sooner vs later.

And I agree that historically we are overdue (and no matter advances in modern medicine it's only a matter of time)

But the historical models/timeline don't take into account modern sanatation.... so we are guessing.

Lacquer Thinner is one of the best antiseptics have personally used. Have full med kits on every work truck and fulfillment kit at work. Help always wanted Neosporin and bandages out of the kit when got cut or had to dig out a big splinter or shrapnel from an drill bit or end mill exploding. They will rape the kit changing bandages and using up the individually packed alcohol wipes and single dose packs of Neosporin. They will fiddle with a decent wound for a week. I remove any and all debris can find, pour some lacquer thinner in and on wound, tear off a piece of paper towel to cover wound and a few wraps of masking tape to hold it in place. Next day all redness, puss and signs of infection are gone and only cover it if doing something nasty. Keeping some wounds coated with salve and bandage just traps any poison in. I kill it with chemicals then let it breath right up to a wound that needs stitches then clean, hit it with lidocaine, sew and go back to work. Threaded needles are much cheaper at the farm supply than medical supply.

Thanks for the links YH.
I tend to agree with Huey on letting air and light (UV) help deal with skin breaks. I've used this approach when I was in places where a clean bandage was a nice though.

Its that person to person contact we're all looking for, or should be.
The nearest I get to chickens is at KFC and I;m not worried about those.:rofl:

I did not buy my home and land thinking in terms of survival during pandemics but it will be a good location to ride out the storm.

More than able to keep everything away, no contact well out past 300 yards, dedicated and secure water source, etc.

Most folks can't survive a week or ten days without all essential services being on line, working properly and have no clue that if a pandemic hits, the people who keep the water and trucks moving, won;t be going to work, so those two vital resources, water and all goods come to a sudden halt.

Guy at work just went through this (few months back). Bad, deep rotten wound in bottom of his right foot, that he did not know about (diabetes?). Anyway, went into the hospital and they took a few toes. Rot (infection) continued, they said umm, maybe we need to go ahead and take the whole foot next. He said "look, you told me you were going to be aggressive, how much do you need to take to be sure to get it all?". They went ahead and took half way up to the knee and he seems to be fine now and getting around well six months later. But it was touch and go there for a while. I visited him often during the time this was happening and kept thinking that it was a heck of a time to be making life and death decisions when you are racked with fighting a major systemic infection.:eek::eek:

When we have researchers in Alaska digging up 1918 flu bodies in the permafrost.
Why would I be worried about that bug getting loose again?

ROBBO May 12, 2017 18:18

In an average year, for otherwise healthy people between 16 and 65, the NNT(number needed to treat), or the number of flu shots that need to be given for ONE person to not get the flu, is 100. Think about that.

Honey is also a great natural antibiotic. The ancient Egyptians used it 4,000+ years ago. The link is a paper on the medicinal properties of honey. I haven't read it critically yet but a first scan looks interesting.
