A Covid19 Stop The Spread, End The Dread Plan

Last edited Fri Jan 22, 2021, 11:00 PM - Edit history (1)

The following is a former technical instructional manual writers brainstorm to Stop The Spread of Covid19, keep up with the mutations & prevent future viral pandemics.

That said, I studied this Atlantic Magazine article in depth last night as well as speed reading some research papers about how the various virus amino proteins work.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100214937462

The following are some conclusions & The Plan to conquer Covid19.

INTRODUCTION

In a nutshell, the original Covid19 virus seems to have included a conferred ability to quickly mutate to increase its ability to be more easily transmitted. This conclusion is based on identical mutations found in all 3 variants.

Sadly, this mutant ability might not have happened if densely populated countries: US UK Brazil & South Africa hadnít let the original virus run free instead of following guidelines like countries with low case numbers followed.

In other words, if all countries had locked down and some densely countries not go for herd immunity, these variants may not have happened. And certainly the number of deaths reduced. Hindsight.

Again, the UK Brazil & South Africa Covid19 variants all have some of the exact same mutations.

That is why science suspects that the specific mutations in common were built into the original Covid19 virus: a conferred ability.

And this is concerning scientists.

Of greatest concern is the possibility of a mutation evolving that might not be stopped by existing vaccination induced antibodies.

So bottom line This Covid19 War requires a very strong response.

THE PLAN

1. Stop the spread. Following a National information campaign and agreed compliance by all Governors & Mayors the Country should go into 100% lockdown to minimize new mutations & spread.

2. All schools closed immediately until a CDC testing guideline is completed before reopening. Once opened, all compliance finances and in place. Weekly random testing to determine outbreaks.

3. Every town needs isolation facilities for infected adults so entire families arenít infected.

4. Manufacture & Get N95 masks to all people.

5. Manufacture & distribute Face shields for all.

Simultaneously:

6. Have labs working on vaccination update trials to combat the higher transmission mutations

7. While on lock down, hire crews to invent/adapt/retrofit schools & work places, transportation vehicles Etc to be safer while keeping the mask mandate in place and punishable for non-compliance.

8. Mandatory vaccinations. If kids not vaccinated for Covid19, they can home school only. Parents can retain their freedom to not vaccinate, but not the right mingle with & to infect other students.

9. Have existing vaccination developers begin working on booster shot efficacy.

10. Mandate states to provide CDC with honest records on a daily basis. It is imperative that the US create & maintain an accurate reporting data base to include all reactions to each of the different vaccinations and to catch and isolate a dangerous mutation.

11. Increase production & distribution of all needed equipment for PPE, testing, and vaccinations. Leave manufacturing ability in place for future pandemics. If weíve learned nothing, the need for lightening fast responses to new viruses is critical to economic stability.

12. Create a nationally operated public health distribution capability. Perhaps a health care personnel force developed along the lines of the National Guard. Actually, perhaps adding a health care National force division of the National Guard.

If the National Guard could have a non-combat Pandemic Force medical professional health care division that could be called into action we might be able to stop the spread of new pandemics. As a young person, I would have signed up for a National Guard Pandemic Medical Corp division in a grey beat!


Off the top of my head.

Apologies for any typos(writing on the smallest iPhone ever made) & possible hubris.

Help President Biden enroll cooperation. Contact your local Mayors Representatives Senators friends neighbors....well everyone

Dare to be outspoken!

3. Test, trace, isolate, test, trace, isolate to break the transmission was the most succesful strategy

Just locking down for a short period of time is not enough, since small amounts of non-compliance will result in new outbreaks. These have to be controlled by the test, trace, isolate method.

Another thing is to implement the proposal that Apple and Google made that apps on smartphones use bluetooth to identify and keep a list of the other smartphones that they have been near. Then if someone tests positive, you can read out the list of close contact smartphone identifiers. This is then used by public health workers to contact the users of those close contact smartphones. It was a sound plan, but no effort was put into implementing it.

4. Yes test trace isolate when funded or unless too widespread

Last edited Thu Jan 21, 2021, 10:58 PM - Edit history (1)

My townís daily testing infection rate is between 30-50% and no personnel to do tracing. No random testing is done in the open grade schools.

Adding to the above, are the mutation variants. We are clueless at this time.

In short, we are a raging pine forest fire to use as an analogy. We need to clear a wide swath to contain the damage.

A 4 week lock down is the large swath.

During the 4 week shutdown, widespread testing & tracing programs need to be created and operational and must include PPE, testing equipment, quick response labs, personnel for all aspects, a management flow chart & several reporting mechanisms (personal reporting apps, data driven reporting dashboards gps data etc).

Reporting vaccination response testing ability put in place. We must track how the vaccination reacts.

This is a doable project with a lot of moving parts and a plethora of outcomes; however, itís very doable.

I would like to see isolation centers like hotels set aside to reduce infecting entire families.

The lower the number of infections, the slower the mutation rate. We donít want to reach the uncontrollable mutation level.

Perhaps a new department in each town & city government centers manned my public health professionals is required fir this and future pandemics.

My state does not have a nurse in each school. One nurse covers a wide swath of schools and thousands of students. Pandemics require a larger investment for school nurses.
