s epidemiologist continue to evaluate the behavior of the mamma virus COVID-19, many are setting off alarms. While science is critical & imperative, the facts are, scientist are treading unfounded ground. What our scientist mostly
unanimously foresee is a world that, even when the current outbreak temporarily abates, this virus is acting like a mutating virus that can, and will most likely, become a seasonal virus.
I am neither a dooms-day monger nor a conspiracy-theorist, yet I predict a second wave of the Corona pandemic. COVID-20, if you like. Yes. I have done my homework. I gather my research from the scientist - NOT mainstream media. In my methodology within their epistemology, I have found an alarming fact. The mamma virus is mutating quickly, while appending itself to additional viruses.
“October 2020,” said emerging diseases expert Amesh Adalja of the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, “won’t look nothing like October 2019.” And neither will October 2021, according to an
released on Thursday by epidemiologist Michael Osterholm of the University of Minnesota and his colleagues. Simple science offers us immediate insight. As mamma viruses mutate, they adopt a new kind of virion behavior. Each beg new science.
Most scientist agree on the predictability of three scenarios.
- Mini-waves of outbreaks will occur
- The current monster-wave is followed by one twice as fierce and even longer-lasting (based on the science of outbreaks rebound)
- The current wave creates a new normal, with Covid-19 outbreaks of nearly equal size and, in most cases, duration through the end of 2022.
when a significant drop in the number of cases and deaths are leading officials and individuals to let down their guard, relax physical distancing more than is/was safe, and fail to heed (or even detect) the early warning signs that a new outbreak is gathering force. And then - it hits. At that point, the best-case scenario is that an effective vaccine has arrived; with the complexity of the people allowing officials to put the vaccine, which contains the virus, into their bodies, which all vaccines are based. Secondly, scientist are not certain this vaccine won't activate a new wave. Regardless, the world needs to prepare for the worst case of Covid-19/20 - predicting at least half of the world's population will be infected, with or without becoming ill.
There are "carriers" and "victims."
Carriers are host-bodies that experience zero symptoms. Victims are host-receivers. Meaning, their bodies, for whatever reason, invite the mamma virus into their genetic system. Due to this science, "carriers" become the most dangerous "silent-infectious" people on the earth - a science authentic epidemiologist refuse to ignore.
The malicious deception.
Infected victims that "survive" the first wave of the virus are duped into thinking they are immune after contracting the virus. Fact. Science reveals the mamma virus simply goes dormant. Their treatment killed enough of the virions to slow the immortality of their bodies. Epidemiologist know the impossibility of killing all mutating host-cells. These virions can remain dormant for days, months, and at times years. Victims switch from "victims" to "carriers" - this time hosting the additional mutated virions (viruses). Surviving victims are placed to the top of the pile as to high-risk carriers.
Since our sociologist have determined
that "lock-down" arouses resistance, our global community faces the inevitable - mutation cycles. It is understandable why the people get tired of social engagement rules. It rubs against their old-norm. Our answer is in the acceptance of our "new-norm." Problem. The masses typically hate change. People who hate change force themselves, and their sphere of influence, to deceive self and others into joining the lie - "
this too shall pass.
" But...what if it doesn't? Well qualified scientist, and researchers, do not disregard this question. It is in this question the "real-deal" caretakers search for answers.
While the "real-deal" caretakers need to
permit the primary modality of facing global pandemics, "lie a little," each must scan the horizon for practical solutions. Until we secure the scientific answers, consider these helps:
- Taking the necessary precautions and adhering to the official safety protocols - resist your resistance
- Reconnect oneself to the Living God, through Christ
- Reconnect with family and loved ones - refute the new modality of "silent-replies"
- Check up on loved ones & strangers
- Care for those known as "high-risk" & the forgotten
- Seek out news behind the mainstream news - real science
- As in war, support people on the front-lines
- Brainstorming short and long-term solutions, especially for basic needs in the here and now - preparedness
- Take advantage of social networking & texting
- Advocate the message of "God is in control" - sovereignty
- Focus on unity and community service
- Find ministry opportunities during these challenging times
- Be apart of the solution, lead others to Christ
- Focus on emotional and spiritual needs that are commonly forgotten
- Encourage sharing, rather than hoarding resources and essential items - share quality, authentic, publications & media
- Collaborate rather than "putting your head in the sand"
- Use all available resources for advancing the Gospel
- Focus on being a "source" for eternal solutions - during the end times, authentic Christians must remain being the source for Christ
- Maintain your own health - your family & friends need you
- Last, but not least, stay informed - pick your favorite online teacher & continue your growth in Christ
Lying to yourself will never help
you in being prepared. Today, we talk about a global virus. What about the other eschatological items our Lord has in place to set up for the Great Tribulation?
"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. "
But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved
." (Matthew 24:7-13)
I, like Jesus, say it like it is.
If you seriously want to be a "watchman" for Christ, look for - nations against nations, kingdoms against kingdoms, famines, earthquakes, hatred by all, a great "falling away," betrayal, false prophets, and the people's love growing cold. My goal in all that I do is helping members endure to the end. It is in this, certain members will be saved.
Until next time...
