How the Magnet family is prepping for Coronavirus - 03/01/20 02:20 PM

Our youngest, perhaps best called dramamagnet, asked what weíre doing to get ready for COVID-19.

We have a range of possible responses, but mostly what weíve done is lay in a modest supply of extra OTC meds, herbal teas, and fixings for electrolyte replacement, I responded. We may get to the point where I work from home for a few weeks and keep you and the other little Magnets out of school, but weíre not there yet and it doesnít seem likely based on what we know now. Please maintain appropriate social distancing and wash your hands frequently.

Our biggest potential issue would be if we had extended utilities outages, but I explained that Iím not doing anything unusual about that (we do own a good generator with a small amount of fuel on hand). Young dramamagnet doesnít have the context so I didnít say that this is our approximate equivalent of wildman800ís HURCON 5.

Lest we think itís going to pass us by, my gut says that a local quarantine is virtually inevitable. Cases have shown up across the west coast. Yes, they are being downplayed, but reports Iím reading of the CDC refusing testing until days after admission tell me they are either short test kits or their protocols need a serious review. Authorities in the medical community responsible for major events (hello, CDC) reacted late and seemed to be just going through the motions but werenít really serious.
UC Davis treated coronavirus patient for week; workers sent home ó The Sacramento Bee

...The patient, whom the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed has tested positive the COVID-19 strain, was moved to the Sacramento teaching hospital on Feb. 19...ďWe requested COVID-19 testing by the CDC, since neither Sacramento County nor CDPH is doing testing for coronavirus at this time,Ē the memo says. ďSince the patient did not fit the existing CDC criteria for COVID-19, a test was not immediately administered. UC Davis Health does not control the testing process.Ē

On Sunday, the CDC ordered a coronavirus test on the patient, and UC Davis Health officials discovered Wednesday that the patient tested positive for the deadly respiratory illness ...

So the patient is transferred to the hospital on Wednesday, isnít tested until Sunday and the results werenít back Ďtil the following Wednesday, a week after being admitted ó why am I filled with confidence... Itís past time to get serious.

Stock up on food that you regularly eat. Donít buy MREís or survival rations in general unless you really like them. They cost more and are no better than canned goods. I had some canned ravioli the other day that was 5 years past itís use by date, it tasted fine and Iím sure its nutritional value was as negligible as it was when ďfreshĒ. A calorie is a calorie...

Russ, letís say youíre correct and a local quarantine happens. What do you think that will look like?

I have no idea. Chaos ó not you, real chaos. It would be a mess. I really hope we donít see local quarantines. How do you enforce a quarantine on folks who need to shop for food? Self-isolation is more likely but even that is virtually unenforceable.

Since the post above Iíve read another piece of speculation that seems to ring true (to me). As I understand, Wuhan, China was one of the first places to get 5G. One frequency component of 5G is at 60GHz which is a frequency at which oxygen resonates. There are a few charts from the FCC (1997) at: FCC ... Millimeter Wave Propagation: Spectrum Management Implications (July 1997) which show the atmospheric absorption of energy in the millimeter wave spectrum. The chart on pg 6 of the document (pg 8 of the .pdf) clearly shows the absorption spike at 60 GHz.

People have known about 60 GHz O2 absorption for many years (itís just physics) but Iíve only seen it presented from the perspective of what the oxygen does to the signal level. Iíve never seen research/tests regarding what happens to the oxygen molecule ó Cause and Effect, Action and Reaction.

Apparently, the oxygen moleculeís encounter with a 60GHz signal changes the electron energy and puts the oxygen into a state in which it wonít bind with hemoglobin.
Wuhan. 5G and face masks causing suffocation.
... At 60 GHz, 98% of the transmitted 5G energy will be absorbed by atmospheric oxygen which then alters the orbital properties of the electrons of the oxygen molecules. ĎĒ60GHz is the frequency of oxygen molecule absorption. Oxygen molecules have electrons that they share with each other, oxygen is a diatomic molecule. What we breathe are two oxygen molecules bonded together with the electrons that they share.Ē When the oxygen molecule is hit with 60GHz 5G waves, these waves affect the orbital resonance properties of those shared electrons. It is those shared electrons that bind to the hemoglobin in our blood.í When the oxygen is disrupted, it will no longer bind to the hemoglobin and myoglobin (oxygen carrying molecules) and therefore will not be able to carry oxygen to the cellís powerhouse Ďmitochondriaí. Without oxygen, the liver becomes congested and the body, and brain, begins to break down due to slow suffocation. ...

Part of that is physics and part is theory; I wonder how long it takes for an oxygen molecule to return to a normal state. Why do some people die and others donít even realize theyíre sick? Ever get the feeling youíre a lab rat and the world is just one big beta test? ...

Or... there are a large number of old, old heavy smokers in China.

Regarding Wuhan link :
This is From a comment on a FRICK-FRACKING YOUTUBE VIDEO.....

This is not science, this is a troll, don't ever get science from youtube- 7/5ths of the people on youtbue can't do fractions, sigh....

Based on the yet limited evidence, old people, smokers, and people with other health conditions are most at risk, which fits well with the respiratory symptoms.

Iíve been working through our HURCON 4 equivalent checklist. It appears very likely that one or more of the schools the younger Magnets attend are about to go full remote-learning, and Iím starting to think that our Sheriff is going to declare a state of emergency soon.
