Well, where I live in the Roaring Fork Valley – it is looking like maybe the spread is still happening, but, thank God, the number of deaths is extremely low. This morning I checked (and noticed that the New York Times is focusing now on CASES instead of DEATHS (which would obviously be more concerning because it is a higher number). Fear is a great mechanism to control.
TODAY OUR STATS:
Pitkin County: 195 Cases/2 Deaths
Eagle County: 1168 Cases/9 Deaths
Garfield County: 825 Cases/4 Deaths
NOW MIND YOU – July 12th, this is what the stats were:
Pitkin County: 130 Cases/2 Deaths
Eagle County: 761 Cases/ 8 Deaths
Garfield County: 403 Cases/ 3 Deaths
That means in 47 days, in the 2 main counties where I live/work (Pitkin/Eagle) that there has been NO INCREASE in deaths in one and ONE additional death in the other.
Is it the masks working, considering it wasn’t until March that the “laws” were enacted (reminder: laws are passed by elected officials NOT ‘mandated’ by government officials or bureaucrats – so these were not mask LAWS, they were mask RULES)? The CCP virus was arguably spreading in our country even in December… that is 3 months before the mask rules were implemented.
Is our social distancing working? Probably…
Is the virus becoming weaker? I hope so…
Are we achieving “herd immunity”? I bet if we tested EVERYBODY for antibodies that we would have a big surprise.
Are the tests actually working and showing the sickness and spread? Are there false positives? False negatives? Contaminated tests? Do the tests reveal what is actually going on? Oh, and WHY ON EARTH would we use and trust testing kits from China when the Chinese Communist Party has made it clear their intentions to harm the United States?
The real truth is that no one really knows for sure. One thing that seems apparent is that the mortality rate is decreasing, and that is good news. But I don’t think we really know what is going on and that leaves a big vacuum for the people and forces that seek to use fear to control and manipulate.
So how much longer do we “stop the spread”? Well, the real answer is INDEFINITELY. Because you cannot stop the spread of a virus. Period. The only way to increase health and immunity is to build peoples’ immune systems. Period. Oh, and we can do that without a man-made, potentially genetically-modified, artificial vaccine… but no one is talking about that right now.
