Well this can't be good


(@COVID19Tracking)

Yesterday, we detailed testing falloffs in hotspot states, but it is much more widespread, even in places that have large outbreaks and are opening schools like Mississippi.

Birx warns 9 cities, California's central valley about increasing coronavirus cases

Dr. Birx outlined new areas of concern in a private phone call with state and local officials Wednesday, according to a recording of the call obtained by the journalism non-profit Center for Public Integrity.

"We are concerned that both Baltimore and Atlanta remain at a very high level," Birx said on the call. "Kansas City, Portland, Omaha, of course what we talked about in the Central Valley (in California)."

"We are seeing a slow uptick in test positivity in cases in places like Chicago, Boston and Detroit and DC," she said, adding that the virus has entered a new phase.
"This outbreak is different from the March, April outbreak in that it's in both rural and urban areas," Birx said.

Some less bad news at least

The Bank of England has published its latest quarterly Monetary Policy report with views on the UK economy

It predicts that GDP will be down 9.5 per cent this year, lower than previously estimates of around 14 per cent

slump might only be the worst in a CENTURY rather than 300 years

Just to follow on from what Dr. Birx said about rising infections in part of California, Vegz, Dutchy posted this regarding CA today. (you might have seen it already)

I hadn't been paying a ton of attention to California, but they seem to be dropping like a rock as of late.

7 Day average on a solid downward slope, they're back to where they were at the beginning of July now.

LA county where I live has consistently reported delays and lab reporting issues. Been happening a couple times a week which has caused lower daily cases...so who even knows anymore. I wouldn't say they've been "dropping like a rock" . Today LA county reported +3.290 new cases.

Over 100,000 dead people they SAY...

How the fuck do you KNOW they are dead?

The screen told you.

And like screen worshipping tards you fall for it.

They have the tech to MAKE ANY REPORT..VID..EVENT they want to.

They put it on a screen.

And you helieve it.

Why?

Cause its ON A FUCKING SCREEN.

Did anyone SEE THESE 100,000 PEOPLE DIE?

DID YOU?

NO?

THATS RIGHT...THE FUCKING SCREEN TOLD YOU.

SCREEN IS GOD.


Now for REALITY.

Be patient...long read but is an eye opener.

Now some history.


Event 201 = Gates

ID2020 = Gates

Coronavirus patent = Gates

Covid vaccine = Gates

WHO/NIAID/CDC/UN funding = Gates

Fauci/Birx/Tedros funding = Gates

New Economy based on Human Activity (060606) = Gates

Hypothesize a simulated global outbreak, required steps, various phases, overall timeline and expected outcomes
(Rockefeller - Lock Step, 2010).

-Create a very contagious but super low mortality rate virus to fit the needed plan (SARS/HIV hybrid research strain created at Fort Detrick class 4 lab from 2008-2013 as part of a research project to find out why coronavirus's spread like wildfire in bats but have an extremely hard time infecting humans (hence the 4 HIV inserts, aka the missing key to infect the human ACE-2 receptor)

-Create a weaponized version of the virus with a much higher mortality rate as a "BACKUP plan" ready to be released in phase 3 BUT ONLY IF NEEDED (SARS/HIV/MERS weaponized tribrid strain created at Fort Detrick class 4 lab in 2015)

-Transport the research strain to a different class 4 lab (National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg Canada) and have it stolen and smuggled out by China (Shi Zhengli) on purpose and taken to China's only class 4 lab (Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan China) for added plausible deniability and to help cement the wanted BACKUP public script as something to fall back on IF needed (primary script being its natural, backup script being that China created it and released it by accident)

-Fund all the talking heads (Fauci/Birx/Tedros...) and agencies (WHO/NIAID/CDC/UN...) that would be involved with pandemic response prior to the planned release of the research strain to control the wanted script throughout the operation.

-Create and fund the vaccination development and roll-out plan so its capable of being rolled out on a global scale (Gates - Decade of Vaccines: Global Vaccine Action Plan, 2010-2020)

-Create and fund the vaccination verification/certification protocols (Digital ID) to enforce/confirm the vaccination program after the mandatory roll-out is enacted (Gates - ID2020)

-Simulate the Lock Step hypothesis just prior to the planned research strain release using a real-world exercise as a final wargame to determine expected response/timelines/outcomes (Gates - Event 201, Oct 2019)

-Release the research strain at the Wuhan Institute of Virology itself and then blame it's released on a natural scapegoat as the wanted primary script (the Wuhan wet market, Nov 2019)

-Downplay the human-to-human transmission for as long as possible to allow the research strain to spread on a global scale before any country can lockdown/respond to avoid initial infection

-Once a country has seed infection in place, lockdown incoming/outgoing travel but keep the transmission within the country spreading for as long as possible

-Once enough people in a country/region are infected, enact forced quarantines/isolation for that area and expand the lockdown regions slowly over time.

-Over-hype the mortality rate by tying the research strain to deaths that have little to nothing to do with the actual virus to keep the fear and compliance at a maximum (if anyone dies for ANY reason and is found they have COVID consider it a COVID death & if anyone is thought to of MAYBE had symptoms of COVID to assume they have COVID and consider it a COVID death).

-Keep the public quarantined for as long as possible to destroy the regions economy, create civil unrest, breakdown the supply chain, and cause the start of mass food shortages, as well as cause peoples immune system to weaken due to lack of interaction with other people/bacteria (the outside world... aka the things that keeps our immune system alert and active).

-Downplay and attack any potential "treatments" and continue to echo that only a "cure" is viable to fight this virus (aka a vaccine)

-Continue to drag out the quarantine over and over and over again (in 2 week intervals) causing more and more people to eventually stand up and protest/defy them.

-Eventually end the phase 1 quarantine once they get enough public push-back (~June 2020), and publicly state that they still think it's "too early" to end the isolation but are going to do it anyways.

-Once the public go "back to normal" wait a few weeks and then continue to over-hype the research strain mortality rate (~Aug-Sept 2020), and combine it with the increase in deaths due to people dying from standard illnesses at a higher rate then normal due to having highly weakened immune systems from months of being in isolation, to help further "pad" the mortality rate and hype the upcoming phase 2 lockdown.

-Eventually enact phase 2 quarantines (~Oct-Nov 2020) on a even more extreme level and blame the protesters (mostly people who don't trust their government already) for the cause of the "larger" 2nd wave (we told you so, it was too early, this is all your fault cause you needed a hair cut, your freedoms have consequences...).

-Enforce the phase 2 quarantines at a much more extreme level, increasing the penalty for defiance (replace fines with jail time), deem ALL travel as non-essential, increase checkpoints (including military assistance), increase tracking/tracing of the population (mandatory apps), take over control of food/gas (large scale shortages) so that people can only get access to essential products/services if they are FIRST given permission.

-Keep the phase 2 lockdown in place for a much longer period of time then the phase 1 lockdown, continuing to destroy the global economy, further degrade the supply chain, and further amplify the food shortages, and alike.

-Quell any public outrage using extreme actions/force and make anyone who defy's them appear as public enemy #1 to those who are willing to submit.

-After a rather long phase 2 lockdown (6+ months), roll-out the vaccination program + vaccine certification and make it mandatory for everyone (giving priority access to those that submitted from the start), and have those that are for it attack those that are against it saying they are a threat and the cause of all the problems (we can't go back to normal until EVERYONE takes the vaccine... people defying them are hurting our way of life and therefore are the enemy).

-If the majority of people go along with the agenda then let those people enter the new system (new normal) while limiting the minority that defy the agenda's ability to work/travel/live.

-If the majority of people go against the agenda then release the weaponized SARS/HIV/MERS tribrid strain as phase 3, a virus with a 30%+ mortality rate as a final scare to push the minority to quickly become the majority and give a final "we told you so" to those that didn't listen.

-Enact the new economy model (Microsoft patent 060606 - Cryptocurrency System Using Body Activity Data) which is based on human behavior and willingness to submit (tweaked version of Black Mirror's "Fifteen Million Merits") using food/water/shelter and other essentials as a weapon of enforcement of the new economic system. Basically do what we want and get rewarded (gain credits/score and gain more access to things you need to survive) or go against what we want and get penalized (lose credits/score and lose access to things you need to survive).

...Welcome to the New World Order.. And I would like to add that if anyone thinks that this isn't true then check out parts of China, they already have the cryptocurrency system in place in certain areas.."

 Quoting: Vegz


Seems like they may be getting creative with the definition of 24 hrs. I can't find a specific source for a jump but if any state moves probable deaths to confirmed deaths you get these kind of jump at Johns Hopkins that you won't see on worldometer.

Johns Hopkins reported 158321 @ 16:00 GMT today,
159990 now vs 162783 on worldometer.

Current Johns Hopkins numbers would put the 14 and 7 day average at ~1100 deceased per day, not a big jump.

Apparantly the first test was antigen, second test PCR. So he's most likely negative because PCR have the higher accuracy. What I don't get is the PCR test was administered in the afternoon but they have the result back already? I thought it took 24 hours minimum to process a PCR test.

Actual processing time is ~1-2 hours. A lot of the delays are from the testing sites collecting samples for a day, then sending them to the lab at the end of the day. If the lab has no backlog they process it the next day.

If you are a governor and can summon a nurse and have your sample brought to a lab with a handy "RUN ASAP" note you can get your results quite a lot quicker.

OH Governor’s Office: In a second test administered today in Columbus, Governor Mike DeWine has tested negative for COVID-19. First Lady Fran DeWine and staff members have also all tested negative for COVID-19.

"The test the White House has been using has a high false rate; there have been staff members who tested positive who tested negative a short time later. And there have been questionable negatives."

Think they still use the Abbott IDNOW platform, which officially is great but hasn't been doing well with independent verification.

Apparantly the first test was antigen, second test PCR. So he's most likely negative because PCR have the higher accuracy. What I don't get is the PCR test was administered in the afternoon but they have the result back already? I thought it took 24 hours minimum to process a PCR test.

WHY would they not use the more accurate test (in the first place) on a governor or anyone at the White House? SMH.

Exactly. If Dutchy is right in what he says that the more accurate PCR test only takes 1-2 hours to process then why aren't they using that in the first place.

The rapid test (the one with lower level of accuracy) is cheaper I think. But c'mon, if the Governor was due to meet with the President just give him the PCR test. It turns out the rapid test gave a false positive, but it could just as well have been a false negative. (I think I've got that right Dutchy?)
