Cuba : From AIDS, Dengue, And Ebola To COVID-19
By Don Fitz, Green Social Thought. Preparing for a pandemic requires understanding that a change in the relationship between people is primary and the production of things is secondary and flows from social factors. Investors in profit-based medicine cannot comprehend this concept. Nothing could exemplify it more clearly than Cuba’s response to the corona virus (COVID-19). The US dawdled for months before reacting. Cuba’s preparation for COVID-19 began on January 1, 1959. On that day, over sixty years before the pandemic, Cuba laid the foundations for what would become the discovery of novel drugs, bringing patients to the...

“In early and mid-March, when America began widespread closures, quarantines and social distancing, covid-19 caused many fewer deaths than other common causes — fewer in a week than chronic liver disease or high blood pressure, and far fewer than suicide or the common flu. By the end of March, the toll was closer to the average weekly deaths from diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Into April, weekly covid-19 deaths climbed past those from accidents and chronic lower respiratory disease. And last week, covid-19 killed more people than normally die of cancer in this country in a week. Only heart disease was likely to kill more people that week.


Brooklyn ER Doctor: Life And Death On The Frontlines Of COVID-19
By Rico Cleffy, Indypendent. org. As the number of those infected with COVID-19 continues to climb in New York — stressing the state’s already underfunded, understaffed and ill-equipped hospital system — we spoke with Maurice Selby, an ER doctor at two hospitals, one in Brooklyn, the other in Long Island. In an average week, Dr. Selby is averaging three, 12-14 hour shifts at the Long Island facility, which is private, and at least one per-diem shift in Brooklyn at a public medical center. On the condition that we not publish the names of his employers, The Indypendent interviewed Dr. Selby at length, first at the end of March and...-more-


COVID-19 And Deadly Health Care For Black People
By Margaret Kimberley, Black Agenda Report. When black people need medical care they are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. The ferocity of anti-black racism is such that even an effort to spare one’s life can still end in death. Medical professionals are no more enlightened than anyone else and often join in meting out the harshest treatment possible for black people.  Black workers are less likely to be able to quarantine during the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Instead, men and women who work in fields such as mass transit, the postal service, retail, and in health care itself are exposing themselves to the COVID-19 virus. -more-


The Failing Four: Prison Officials Attempt To 'Stop The Spread Of Coronavirus'
By Amani Sawari, Sawarimi.org. The Coronavirus pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the lives of people all over the world, especially those in prison. While the CDC has posted their recommendations for all people to follow, prisoners have no freedom to protect themselves from the spread. People in prison are limited in their ability to keep a safe distance from others, receive medical care, keep in contact with their loved ones or even get access to preventative products like hand sanitizers and soaps. The situation in prison is getting worse by the week. Over the past month the number of cases in prison have.. -more-


Amazon Fires Employees Who Spoke Out About COVID-19 And Climate Change
By Zoya Teirstein, Grist.org. Amazon is trying to establish itself as the most essential of essential businesses during the coronavirus outbreak. But the tech giant is struggling to keep a lid on internal turmoil, both at its warehouses, where workers say they’re not being adequately protected from COVID-19, and at its corporate offices, where a showdown between tech employees and management over the company’s climate policies reached a tipping point last week. Last Friday afternoon, Amazon fired two of its tech employees after they publicly criticized its coronavirus policies. Those employees, Emily Cunningham and Maren Costa, both... -more-


Waffle House Puts Profits Over People In The COVID Era
By Liberation Staff Asheville, Liberation News. Waffle House, like many struggling industries across the country, has chosen to place the burden of its lost profits on the shoulders of those who keep it running every day of the year. COVID-19 has brought opportunity again and again for corporate entities and long-standing business empires to ravage the pockets of their workers, those whose labor has lined corporate pockets for generations. The capitalist class has, not unexpectedly, proven itself unwilling to place human lives over profit-hoarding and welfare for the rich. The Party for Socialism and Liberation’s own Jason Carroll reports... -more-


Dozens Of Strikes Say, ‘No Safety, No Work!’
By Martha Grevatt, Workers World. As the death toll climbs, workers deemed “essential” have staged at least 75 separate job actions since the Chipotle walkout. Walkouts, sickouts, sit-ins and, most recently, car and social-distance pickets have involved people from a wide range of occupations. In addition to many fast food workers, those protesting include workers in health care, construction, manufacturing, meat and poultry processing, retail, warehouses, public transit, bars and restaurants, water and sewage, beverage bottling, nursing home care and more. Common demands of the walkouts are for employer-provided... -more-

The CEO of Tyson Foods,  Dean Banks, is one of the CEOs 🦀 Trump claims to be consulting on how to reopen the country. Yet his plants are responsible for two clusters of COVID. ... ...

😈 Trump and 🐍 Tyson Foods seem to think these workers are expendable. But if food plants continue to cause clusters like this, it’ll not only shut down key parts of the food supply, but create clusters of COVID-19 in rural areas that are far less equipped to deal with it.

Second in a new series of 4 videos (now 5) on my latest climate change and coronavirus musings. Topics: Arctic polar vortex collapse spilling cold dry air south into US Deep South, clashing with warm humid air moving north from crazily warm Gulf of Mexico Sea-Surface Temperature anomaly 2.25 C, creating huge storms with tornado outbreaks, including a huge pair (2 mile wide; 1 mile wide) cutting up to 80 mile devastation swath. 5 C temperature anomaly over huge Eurasian region. Dimming? Why coronavirus spread is huge; prion-like features :o and “wet-noodle” stickiness. Large China contact tracing study on how spread is indoors, NOT outdoors.

Coronavirus: Learning How to Dance

Part 1: A Dancing Masterclass, or What We Can Learn from Countries Around the World
Tomas Pueyo

Apr 20, 2020 · 18 min read

SNIPPET:

A month ago we sounded the alarm with Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now. After that, we asked countries to buy us time with Coronavirus: The Hammer and the Dance and looked in detail at the US situation with Coronavirus: Out of Many, One. Together, these articles have been viewed by over 60 million people and translated into over 40 languages.


Since then, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases has grown twentyfold, from 125,000 to over 2.5 million. Billions of people around the world are under the Hammer: Their governments have implemented heavy social distancing measures to quench the spread of the virus.

Most did the right thing: The Hammer was the right decision. It bought us time to reduce the epidemic and to figure out what to do during the next phase, the Dance, in which we relax the harsh social distancing measures in a careful way to avoid a second outbreak. But the Hammer is hard. Millions have lost their jobs, their income, their savings, their businesses, their freedom. The world needs answers:

When is this over?  ???

When do we relax these measures and go back to the new normal?   ???

What will it take?  ???

What will life be like?

When do we get to dance?

This article will explain when, and how, we will dance. Specifically, we will discover:

1. What can we learn from the experiences of countries around the world?

2. What measures will we need to implement during the dance, so we can get back to a new normal? At what cost?

3. How can we make them a reality?

Here’s what you’ll learn:

The Hammer has bought us time. Millions have been saved.
Now we know what we need to do to dance.
Many countries have shown us the path.
We can learn from their successes and from their failures.
In fact, we can dance for pretty cheap.
We likely won’t need to keep businesses and schools closed.
But we need to know exactly what these measures are, because we need to prepare for them now.
Governments have a major role to play.
Most haven’t done what they need to do yet.
They are antsy to get back to normal, so they’re rushing without being ready.
Many will have a second outbreak.
If we do it right, in a few weeks we can get back to a new normal.
Our lives will change for a year or so, but these changes will be reasonable.

They will allow us to avoid both massive deaths and economic collapse.


This article has exploded into the size of a little book, so instead of releasing it all at once, we will release one section per day. If you don’t want to miss any article, sign up for the newsletter. Today, we are releasing the 1st part of the article: A Dancing Masterclass.

Let’s do it.
