says everyone will get coronavirus

New Jersey’s top public health official says everyone, including her, will eventually contract the coronavirus. “I’m definitely going to get it. We all are,” Judith Persichilli told NJ.com. “I’m just waiting.”  Persichilli, 71, is a member of the age demographic for which the virus is most deadly. Nevertheless, she said she believed the odds were still on her side and she would most likely have a mild form of the illness.   Persichilli has become a near-household name in the Garden State in recent weeks with regular press conferences where she reads the latest figures of coronavirus infections and deaths.

Comments:

If we are all going to get it, then why all of these precautions? It's spitting into the wind!

Perschilli is your basic RN turned administrative/political hack (MA) who has cycled though exec positions in multiple hospitals. She is no scientist, nor AP nurse, nor a doctor. So if this is true, why isolate in this "martial law lite" that her boss Murphy has imposed?

So C-virus 19 is more contagious than the Bubonic Plague-----the Black Death? Smallpox? Diphtheria?

The Diamond Princess event proves this wrong. Only 17% of the people on the ship contracted the illness. Even if you take into account that at some point exposure became far more limited, one would assume most of the people on the ship came in contact with the illness at some point and yet only 17% contracted it and of those people 52% showed no sign of disease at all. And this ship's population is heavily weighted toward seniors as the average age was in the 60's.

#2 is correct. Why are we shutting down the whole state if the vast majority are going to get it anyway. Looking at stats from CDC 80% of people show no symptoms and the 20% with symptoms only a few need special care. The influenza this year has affected more people and killed many more than cv19 yet no panic on this. Let’s get back to work.

As a doctor at Johns Hopkins Hospital told me over a week ago, most people may have already exposed to this virus, and didn't even notice it. They may have had a runny nose, watery eyes, and a cough, but just thought it was allergies. It's been a warm winter here in the Mid Atlantic region, and grass, trees, and other plants started blooming earlier than usual.

This virus is either turning people into idiots or exposing idiots. Or both. Why is this situation causing people who should know better, people who are in positions of authority and have a duty to the people, to say and do such idiotic things. This is a huge lie from this woman. If she doesn’t have the virus, stays home and doesn’t have contact with other people, she will not get the virus. No other virus in recorded history has behaved in the manner that these people are claiming this one will. This virus is not behaving the way they are claiming it will. This is pure lunacy.

Many people are going to get it. Some will become seriously ill and require hospitalization and some a ventilator. Some will infect medical personnel. Right now the hospitals are fairly full with people with the seasonal flu. A number of them need ventilators. If the government can slow the spread they have time to figure out which drugs and treatments work and companies can produce large quantities of the required drugs. With more time the seasonal flu will recede and more hospital resources (ventilators and staff )will be available to treat the Wuhan China plague. With a slower spread hospital workers will be infected at a lower rate and may have effective treatments available so the can get back to work to treat the seriously ill. It is not clear a all that "everyone is going to get it" but it is clear it has spread very quickly, easily and widely in China, Italy and Spain and at a rate that has or is going to overwhelm the medical resources available. Then people die in the hallways of hospitals waiting for treatment when they could have been saved. In short, slower spread means more time to figure out treatments, produce drugs, means more resources will be available for the critically ill and many more will be saved. If it goes dormant and comes roaring back next winter there may be both drugs and vaccines to kill it. It is not the black plague or smallpox, but it might be the Spanish flu. Slowing the spread may be the difference between a 3 or 4 % death rate and a .3 % or lower one. If you are one of the people who become seriously ill that will matter to you.

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

If you had any doubts that Meghan Markle is a manipulative piece of work, her bombshell Oprah interview Sunday night dumping on the British monarchy would set you straight. Prince Harry’s American wife accused his family of hateful racism against her baby, claimed they refused to protect her and drove her to the point of suicide.She made the incendiary and implausible charge that when she was pregnant with Archie, the royal family decreed that her unborn son would be denied the title of “prince” because her mixed race meant he might have dark skin.

Pelosi’s HR1 bill a blatant power grab for Democrats 30 replies

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

President Biden on Monday seemed to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name at a White House event—calling the Pentagon chief “the guy who runs that outfit over there.” Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals to lead US military combatant commands. “And I want to thank the sec—the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Without question, the vast majority of Americans who support former President Donald Trump were angry and frustrated throughout 2020 passed with barely a mention of then-U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the FBI’s fraudulent “Russiagate” counterterrorism operation directed at his 2016 campaign.In the weeks before the November election, word got out that then-Attorney General William Barr wasn’t going to announce any indictments or even a report on Durham’s investigation because he did not want to influence the outcome.So far, in fact, the only indictment to come out of the Durham probe is that of former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who essentially got a slap on the wrist

Rep. Steve Cohen vowed to renew the push to remove former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s name from the bureau’s downtown Washington headquarters, according to an interview released Monday. Appearing on Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, the Tennessee Democrat said the effort is getting a fresh look after the release of a new movie highlighting the FBI’s secret program to discredit civil rights activists. The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

“There must have been a moment, at the beginning, when we could have said –-no. But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
