stock here--I have the answer to the salient points below, and will update this later with more information.
1) Spread this far and wide
2) What's in a name? A hint about don't let any crisis "go to waste".
3) Like this stuff? Sign up as a follower, I might think someone actually appreciates this information.
4) WTF is a Solar Engineer breaking these stories, LOL
5) Send this link to as many other popular site as you can think of....OK do 2 sites.
6) When this gets picked up by popular sites, like Steve Quayle, we go from 1000 to 2000 hits per day, to 30,000 to 60,000. That is important.
NIH initially labelled this SARS-CoV-2 (That’s the National Institute of Health)
That is super important, because we know a lot about SARs, There were many good studies performed after the 2002, 2003 SARS pandemic
To understand what precautions and actions to take now, and what to expect moving forward, a good review of the characteristics of the SARS virus is essential. Even the curiously chosen name of COVID-19 makes it seem like this is all brand new. It’s not.
1. How long it live on objects?
Up to 27 days
2. How well it can spread through expelled liquids?
Very Effective, just like SARS (1)
3. How well it can spread through fomides (carriers of all sorts)?
Very Well, just like SARS(1)
4. What temperature it becomes “deactivated at” <killed> and what temperatures it most thrives at.
SARS thrives at 4C, that is not good, that is 40F and the termperature of much of the USA at this time. SARS is "Deactivated" (cannot reproduce, effectively killed) starting at 82F, Common Flu and Avian Flu start being killed at 50F, killed well at 60F, and killed very fast at 70F. SARS is much more robust than those other Flus
5. What kind of chemicals kill it and how fast? What heat kills it? Does UV-C Light kill it? (YES, very effectively)
This deserves more coverage, because it can last a long time, up to 27 days, so wiping down a counter or any hard surface, has to be done correctly or you are just creating a false sense of security.
6. What kind of latency period it has? That means how long can you have it, be possibly spreading it, and have no symptoms.
At least 5 days, but other accounts have shown up to 2 weeks and even more.
7. What kind of mortality rate is has?
Well this is kind of a crap shoot? SARS (1) killed 10% but it was restricted to Asia and temperatures were kind of warmer. When you look at % in terms of deaths per confirmed test, then obviously the number of tests are super critical. Data from Italy and USA seem to be pointing to somewhere around 5% to7% but obviously more testing would drop that number. The talking heads who are so confident, while not even realizing that this is SARS, are cock sure that it is 0.5% to 1%.So let's throw down here..... 1% to 10% at a 95% confidence level.
What size is it?
Look at the Graphic above. Size doesn't matter than much when it comes to filtration, because transmission is likely through liquids in a cough or sneeze, and these particles will be trapped by most masks. Any mask is better than no mask.
We “know” all of this, but somehow the whole world is in a guessing game. A game of questions, uncertainty, fear, panic. And when we have not correctly identified the enemy, then it is inevitable that we will make non optimal decisions on an individual, Local, State and Federal levels.
I saw new research today saying that it can live on solid objects for UP TO 3 days…..but the reality is that it can live on solid dry objects up to 2 weeks, and if there is moisture, up to 3 week, and if it cool, up to 4 weeks.
