Surgeon General: Next Week Will Be Our ‘Pearl Harbor And 9/11 Moments’

Surgeon General: Next Week Will Be Our ‘Pearl Harbor And 9/11 Moments’ Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams told NBC‘s “Meet the Press” that next week’s national coronavirus situation would be “our Pearl Harbor moment,” adding “It’s going to be our 9/11 moment.“ Responding to a question on state-specific stay-at-home orders, Adams said “I talked to many of these governors, and here’s what I say to them. Here’s what I would say to them right now. The next week is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment. It’s going to be our 9/11 moment. It’s going to be the hardest moment for many Americans in their entire lives, and we really need to understand that if we want to flatten that curve and get through to the other side, everyone needs to do their part.” Jerome Adams: Next Week Will Be The Coronavirus “Pearl Harbor, 9/11 Moment” pic.twitter.com/DLeL05lsIZ — Pitbull (@Willian87420216) April 5, 2020 Adams says that “Ninety percent of Americans are doing their part – even on those states where they haven’t had a shelter-in-place.” He then asked governors to give the Trump administration at least a week – if they can’t give them 30-days, “so we don’t overwhelm our health care systems over this next week,” adding that they would reassess at that point. “We want everyone to understand; you have to be Rosie the Riveter.

Another Terrible Idea In San Francisco…

Another Terrible Idea In San Francisco… Authored by Erica Sandberg via City-Journal.org, As the United States continues its “pause,” shuttering businesses and public spaces in order to prevent transmission of the coronavirus, residents are compelled to shelter inside their homes. Meantime, those who live on the streets remain outside. San Francisco is well known for its persistent homeless population, made up heavily of drug addicts, the mentally ill, or both. For now, individuals congregate in tents and encampments and drug suppliers continue to deal. Before Covid-19 struck, San Francisco officials took no meaningful action to address the squalid conditions under which so many homeless people live. They threw money at the problem, but the problem grew. Homeless activists and some city leaders have argued that living on the street is a right, but today it presents a serious public-health dilemma: how will officials get homeless people to comply with social-distancing requirements, and what should they do with those who’ve contracted the virus? The city is working to set up the Moscone Center as a shelter, a sensible idea. An even better one would be to revive the recently closed California Pacific Medical Center hospital campus and erect MASH-style medical units. These would allow for closely monitored and efficient care. In fact, the city could use this as an opportunity to provide intensive integrated treatment, including substance-abuse services. Instead, Mayor...

This Is Where The World Is On The “Corona Curve” At This Moment

This Is Where The World Is On The “Corona Curve” At This Moment Two weeks ago, we wrote that with 1.7 billion people in the world under quarantine (a number which has since ballooned to over 3 billion) and “desperate to find out where on the coronavirus “curve” they are to calculate how much more pain there is, JPM made an attempt at a (very nonscientific) visual representation of where on the curve the main covid outbreaks in the world currently stand.” Additionally, this is how we laid out the good/not so good/bad news as of March 24: The good news, China has is now well into the recovery phase, although since any and every number out of China is a lie, we would ignore any reports that the covid pandemic in China is easing especially after a spate of recent indications that China is openly manipulating its infection numbers. Also good news: Korea is almost “over the hump”, and absent new clusters emerging in the next few days, should be in recovery. The not so good news: both Italy and Iran are in the “late accumulation” phase. If they fail to halt the breakout at this point as the recovery phase approaches, it will get very ugly as much of the local population could then be infected. Behind Italy and Iran is the rest of Europe, with Spain,...

“They Want Their Monies Out” – Baltimore Residents ‘Storm Bank’ Amid Fears Of Social Unrest

“They Want Their Monies Out” – Baltimore Residents ‘Storm Bank’ Amid Fears Of Social Unrest The evolution of panic hoarding started with 3M N95 masks, then hand sanitizers, non-perishable foods, guns and ammo, and now cash? A video surfaced on Instagram on Saturday, showing a possible bank run in Baltimore City at the MECU Credit Union, located at 2337 E Northern Pkwy.   Baltimore MECU Bank on April 4 h/t Teresa Davis  The area is considered low/middle class working families (predominantly African American community).

People weren’t cashing in their paychecks because many people were laid off, as we noted, more than 14 million people in the last several weeks have lost their jobs across the county, and what we could be looking at is the beginnings of a bank run. Baltimore MECU Bank ATM line on April 4 h/t Teresa Davis  “As soon as the National Guard rolled into Baltimore City – many folks asked themselves – is this a revisit of the Freddy Gray unrest back in 2015,” said Teresa Davis, owner and operator of Teresa Davis Productions. National Guard Tent City in Baltimore Metro Area h/t Teresa Davis  Davis said for weeks the National Guard had staged military tent cities across the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area.
