bill and melinda gates who have been working on virus through years trump reduced fubding - back who - see abc now

see also cbs lenghi - will economic fallout be greater than virus- los angeles to ban spors to mid 2021- nj governoir says new normal wont be old normal- so does cuomo - heroes mount sinai/beth israel -nb while over 9000 medical workers got virus so far only 27 died - that is less than the death rate of eldes from other flus

this is a very targeted flu
death rates - ecven zero symptoms of youth who dont smoke and are not 0bese are minimal- almost zero among school-age children- death rates of over 80s or those with organic illnesses as frail as over 80 are maximised

it was trump the cdc/nih/fda that abused funding or created imperfect testing versus eg korea

trumps' forner bitch faisi fails to admit his so called victor 70000 deaths instead of 100000 deaths was based on locking in all americans to end may - he has no models pof loss of life due to contractionb of economy by 20% due to his lack of 2 types of data- infection tesing, antibody testing

fauci has perfect strategy of multiple waves - which will ultimately cause more deaths  (health and economic) -see rose garden convesation - attack on both who and wto

trump starts plantingjohn roberts fox and fascist aussie journalost
it is clamed rose garden white house 6.24 that mayo clinic and red cross and 1000 partners are collecting blood from survivors of the virus to support war (cue, innoculation) verus virus

App-based contact tracing may help end coronavirus lockdowns

But only as part of a bigger system

ON APRIL 10TH Apple and Google did something unusual: they announced plans to work together. These two firms exert varying degrees of control over almost every operational smartphone on the planet—Apple through its production of both iPhones and the software that runs them, and Google thanks to a range of programs found in nearly all of the iPhone’s Android-powered rivals. As a result, the two companies have access to a planet-spanning network of sensors and computing power some 3.5bn devices strong. Their plan is to combine their assets to assist the tracking of the covid-19 pandemic.

America, Britain, Germany, Ireland and many other countries were already building apps to track infection. They will now rewrite their software to take advantage of this new arrangement. These apps will work by broadcasting, from each phone they are installed on, a string of numbers and letters unique to that handset. These broadcasts will be detectable by any other phone within Bluetooth range (about nine metres) that has the same app installed. An app will also, simultaneously, listen for strings that other phones are broadcasting. Each phone carrying such an app will record all the character strings it hears, and thus all the phones it has been close to. For reasons of security (and because Apple’s and Google’s underlying cryptographic protocols demand it), the string of characters a phone broadcasts will change every 15 minutes. Also, at least to start with, the records of strings received will be stored only on the receiving phone. That makes hacking or abusing the system hard.
If, however, a phone-user develops symptoms and then tests positive for covid-19, this arrangement changes. Different strings of characters—one for each day that the person in question was potentially infectious—are now broadcast by the authorities to every other app in the network. These strings, which Apple calls diagnosis keys, command all apps so contacted to search records collected since that person’s putative time of infection for signs of proximity to the infected individual’s phone.
Blessed are the appmakers
What happens when a match is found is up to whoever deployed the app. A good response, though, would be to notify the person of interest, and ask him or her to get in touch and arrange to be tested. This way, infections will be detected quickly, and infected individuals offered suitable advice—and possibly quarantined.It all sounds like high-tech wizardry. And it is. But it is important not to get carried away. Smartphone contact tracing is just one part of a broader infrastructure that must be built to track down SARS-CoV-2 faster than it can spread through the population. It will not, for instance, be worth much unless ways of testing and diagnosing people en masse are also rolled out. Without these, there will be no information to feed back into the app network about who may be spreading the virus.
Ideally, such infrastructure will be built around testing stations that people can visit to have their noses and throats swabbed. Countries would in any case be well advised to construct these facilities, even if they do not deploy contact-tracing apps. Indeed, one option for ending the lockdowns many places are experiencing is to be able to test everyone so frequently that the authorities could be sure the virus was not spreading. This would be expensive, though, and deeply unpleasant (think having a Q-tip shoved up your nose once a week for the next two years). Contact tracing helps to direct testing more precisely at those likely to be infected. Using apps helps speed this up.
But only, though, if phone users are willing to adopt the app. Here, Singapore’s experience is salutary. Its government rolled out a contact-tracing app, TraceTogether, on March 20th. So far, however, this has been downloaded by only a sixth of Singapore’s population—barely a quarter of the 60% epidemiologists reckon is needed if it is to be effective at breaking the local epidemic. Perhaps the most used contact-tracing app in the world is that deployed by Iceland. Yet Rakning C-19 (“Rakning” is Icelandic for “tracking”) is used by only 40% of the country’s 364,000 people. If such a small, homogenous place cannot reach the required 60% download rate, what hope is there for large, diverse ones like America?
If tracing apps are to be widely adopted, they must make people want to use them, says Ciro Cattuto, an epidemiologist at the University of Turin, in Italy. “People need to feel like they are contributing to a common good,” he observes. “They need to feel empowered.” Maintaining public trust will be crucial. Since any such app will need to be updated as the situation develops, that trust can be maintained only by extreme transparency, Dr Cattuto says. This means no function creep.It is also important not to invest too much in the idea that automation is everything. Apps and phones can certainly provide location and proximity data, but only human tracers can bring human intelligence to bear on the matter. For example, in late January Taiwan’s contact-tracing team successfully used a mixture of data from the country’s national-health-insurance system and its mobile-phone firms to track down the source of infection for the island’s first covid-19 death—the unlucky taxi driver had picked up a Chinese businessman at the airport. They did this without resort to Bluetooth tracking apps—albeit that their ability to scrutinise the data they needed required the invocation of national-emergency powers.
As well as developing high-tech networks for tracking infection, information-technology firms should therefore also be writing software that improves the productivity of human contact-tracers like Taiwan’s. Interview forms for potential contacts, visualisation dashboards for relevant data, telemedicine for remote diagnostics—all these would be useful. Apps built using Apple’s and Google’s new protocol ought to focus on providing information to technologically empowered human contact-tracing teams, not on automating the whole process.

58 years of american ad agencies destroying trust of local heroines eg nurses- peak reached 6.22pm tonite- trump announces his main efforts in the last stockmarket day before easter spent bailing out airlines and saving oil economy of putin and saudi arabia- of the 4 main commercial media in dc region only nbc covered live and the for 9 minutes before interrupting with local bad news- why arent the ceos of usa mass media and trump the least popular people in usa- ah well they represent usa' 50 richest not the rest of the people and definitely not last mile month trump sees oil at 25 dollars as more catastrophic than more american lives lost  to virus than 9/11 or anything including world war 2 since great depression

chicago jail now number 1 virus cluster hub
in total nursing homes remain number one cluster across states borders eg in virginia one thirds of daths one nursing cente - governors still havent learnt from washingon's parklawn
new yorks 3 medi savours - mercy ship, javis cind=fereence centre , church so underusef that 745army personnel now volunteer to go serve hospitals- trumps lakety oence ckaims this is brillant policy
nbc covers county governor praising blak heroine who conitnued greeting supermarlet custmers in spite of her widely know pre-existing condition

the first case in korea and usa was publicly known on same day- peoples can bless moon jae-in - who's responsible insde beltway for 10 times more deaths and even more market destruction only you can search out


probably most us nurses will look for another profession once virus is contained- as their network will return to being impoverished by every other us health system - lawyers insurance hospitals pharma politicians fleeces- why would any nurse who is also a parent continue after this crisis
and now for something completely different out of china-

2020s species last call to value keynes advice

borrowing a conversation from alumnisat.com and valuetrue.com countdown of sdgs with friends at masterclass100.com

keynes last chapter of general theory explains every global market from health down will become its own exponential sustaining or collapsing economy- so if we want millennials to be the first sdg generation we need to know who is the top sdg economist of markets like
health, safety, communities of homes
finance
education
food water and human energy security
machine energy
rural tech
space and mobile mediation tech
deming engineers tech including world local trade infrastructures - ie place economists
supercomputing/analysis big social platforms

as discussed 1948-1993 by keynsians at the economist - and elsewhere-
the way to vote for each markets sustainability world class economist is the moral purpose they value the segment around not how much money is being extracted each quarter
99% of western economists have completely trashed keynes advice and hired themselves out to big vested interests- by fasiling to jail suc people from 2008 we have started to drown in nature's revenge be that virus or climactic- those alive today will make the 2020s the most exciting time to be alive - the last call for our species to thrive out of evry community on earth

what we knew about infectious diseases in 2005- some selections

george bush warned about battles with global viruses
2004's gates foundation prize for health awarded to fazle abed

gates foundation prize for health awarded to sir fazle abed

note from retired civil servant published in bangladesh daily star feb 2005=Azizul Jalil, a former civil servant and a retired World Bank staff member

I met Abed similarly at a reception in late December last year and had the opportunity to get a fuller picture of BRAC's programme and future plans. As students we sometimes used to meet in 1953 in Maghbazar where we both were living at the time. Abed and I used to have optimistic discussions on our ideals and ambitions during many evenings. Today about half-a-century later, I would have to say that among the three of us, at least Abed has been able to fulfill our youthful dreams of making a real difference in the lives of our people.
I also enquired from Abed what was the latest brain wave and what he was doing about it. He had a quick response and this related to Tuberculosis (TB). The plan was to encourage volunteers at the village level to watch who was coughing for more than five days. The volunteers, who have been supplied with collection kits, would then collect a sample of the person's phlegm. Staff on motor cycles from BRAC's rural clinics would regularly collect these samples and conduct tests. If anyone is detected with TB, medicines would be freely supplied by BRAC for about nine months and the person would hopefully be cured. The incentive for the village level volunteers was that for each successful detection of a TB case, the volunteer concerned would get a reward of 500 taka.
I mentioned that two old friends of mine had set up trusts for charitable works in Bangladesh, each one currently having assets of about 40 crore taka. When I naively asked Abed if BRAC's assets would amount to 400 crores or more, he smiled and told me in fact it was 2000 crores and that BRAC's annual expenditure amounted to 1600 crore taka. Even though it is the world's largest NGO, and receives considerable foreign assistance every year, for a Bangladeshi non-governmental agency, these are astounding amounts of investments for rural development. I learnt that the World Bank's president, Wolfenson had recently remarked to Abed that the latter presides over a bigger organisation than the World Bank in terms of staff size. It is quite true.
Last December, in recognition of his contributions to human development in Bangladesh, Abed received a prestigious UNDP award as the second recipient. The first recipient of this biennial prize in 2002 was the former president of Brazil, Fernando Cordoso. He also received the Gates prize last year for successful efforts to improve public health in the developing countries. I asked Abed what he intended to do with the proceeds of the award (equivalent to about five crore taka). He plans to set up a first class medical and public health college to produce fine doctors to obviate the necessity of Bangladeshis to go abroad for treatment on the flimsiest of grounds.
