Overall, our systematic reviews suggested that social distancing measures could be effective interventions to reduce transmission and mitigate the impact of an influenza pandemic. However, the evidence base for these measures was derived largely from observational studies and simulation studies; thus, the overall quality of evidence is relatively low.
In this review, we focused on 3 personal protective measures and 1 environmental measure. Other
potential environmental measures include humidification in dry environments (48), increasing ventilation (49), and use of upper-room UV light (50), but
there is limited evidence to support these measures.
Further investigations on the effectiveness of respiratory etiquette and surface cleaning through conducting RCTs would be helpful to provide evidence
with higher quality; evaluation of the effectiveness of
these measures targeting specific population groups,
such as immunocompromised persons, would also be
beneficial (Table 2). Future cost-effectiveness evaluations could provide more support for the potential
use of these measures. Further research on transmission modes and alternative interventions to reduce
influenza transmission would be valuable in improving pandemic preparedness. Finally, although our review focused on nonpharmaceutical measures to be
taken during influenza pandemics, the findings could
also apply to severe seasonal influenza epidemics.
Evidence from RCTs of hand hygiene or face masks
did not support a substantial effect on transmission of
laboratory-confirmed influenza, and limited evidence
was available on other environmental measures.

Bexar County’s verified death toll from the novel coronavirus broke 1,000 Sunday 9-13-20
— flu and flu-related pneumonia killed nearly 10,000 Texans in 2017-2018, according to state health officials. All told, Texas’ flu-related death rate this season was 32.25 per every 100,000 people.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report shows nearly 143,000 people, including 172 children, died from the flu and pneumonia in 2017-2018 through mid-May. The Texas numbers go through the end of May, the traditional end of the flu season.
A total of 1,088 deaths occurred in the San Antonio region, an area encompassing 28 counties, between Oct. 1 and June 20, the Texas Department of State Health Services reported. That’s a flu-related death rate of 35.86 per 100,000 people.
More than 800 of those deaths occurred in Bexar County alone, according to surveillance data gathered by San Antonio’s Metropolitan Health District.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts will end nearly all of his state’s social-distancing restrictions on Monday even as the number of new coronavirus cases has trended upward over the last few months.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, believes Americans will be able to sit in theaters again once a coronavirus vaccine has existed “for almost a year.”
He added that if the U.S. gets a “knock-out vaccine that’s 85 [to] 90% effective,” and “just about everybody gets vaccinated,” society will have “a degree of immunity” that allows the general public to “walk into a theater without masks and feel like it’s comfortable” that they will not be at risk of catching COVID-19.
In NONE of the previous 4 epidemics this century was a single positive PCR test treated as sufficient to confirm infection. Reason was basic false-positive rate the test will have even if you buy it's legit. So what changed? https://t.co/XC4w46G62V pic.twitter.com/ivKQzsQJqa— Michael Thau (@MichaelThau) September 7, 2020

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday that subway riders will face a $50 fine if they choose not to wear a mask.
The initiative, which begins Monday, allows NYPD cops and Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) police the authority to give subway, bus, Long Island Rail Road, and Metro-North riders summonses if they do not wear a mask during their commute.
Cuomo explained that there will be “temperature checks at the door,” and that “one member of each party” will be required to leave contact information so that the restaurant can conduct “contact tracing” if there is an outbreak related to the restaurant.
2,797 Ohio nursing home patients have died with coronavirus; 65% of Ohio’s total COVID-19 deaths
Jay Bhattacharya, the director of Stanford’s Program on Medical Outcomes as well as the director of the school’s Center on the Demography and Economics of Health and Aging, said in an interview this week on the John Solomon Reports podcast that he found it “shocking” that, as countless countries earlier this year moved to shut down ahead of COVID-19, so many had forgotten to “think about both the cost and benefits” of such policies.
A Michigan county has passed a resolution urging residents to ignore Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D) copious coronavirus executive orders and “live again.”
The Alcona County Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution in August citing the Declaration of Independence and likening its actions to the Boston Tea Party.
On Wednesday, Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order requiring all organized-sport athletes competing in sports like football and soccer to wear coronavirus masks while playing. But, professional athletes are exempt from having to wear masks during games, the governor says, clearing the way players on teams like the NFL’s Detroit Lions to compete without the encumbrance.
LOCKDOWN USA 578

The CDC said only 6% died from a virus which is 100% scientifically proven fact regardless of what CNN says.
The other 94% died with China virus which is also 100% factual and irrefutable.
The media is the enemy of freedom and liberty and the constitution. Fauci actively denying this provable science-based statement because he’s a globalist who is fixing to get rich off of the vaccine along with all his Democrat buddies.
Data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control show Sweden has a fortnightly infection rate of 37 cases per 100,000 people. This is much lower than France, with 60 cases per 100,000 and Spain at 152.7 cases per 100,000.
Professor Mark Woolhouse, epidemiologist at Edinburgh University and adviser to the UK Government has reportedly said attempting to control coronavirus through lockdown measures was a ‘monumental mistake on a global scale.’
“If folks miss the theater, if they miss the indoor dining, those things will be back,” de Blasio said, before qualifying, “they’ll be back next year at some point” in response to a question Monday over fears about the mass exodus of wealthy constituents fleeing the city and taking their tax dollars with them.
“A declared statewide emergency only ends upon the governor’s declaration that the emergency no longer exists. That has yet to occur in the instant case,” the ruling said
The Court of Appeals ruled today that as long as it’s the opinion of a sitting governor that there’s an emergency, they can take over complete, unilateral control of the state for as long as he or she decides.

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden revealed Friday that he would re-lock down the United States if scientists recommended the extreme measure to stop the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.
“Hopefully this week and next week you’re going to start seeing the death rate really start to drop,” CDC Director Robert Redfield said in a streamed interview with the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Redfield attributed the projected drop to people following mitigation steps to stop the spread of novel coronavirus, including adhering to social distancing measures, wearing face masks, shutting down bars, limiting dining and controlling crowd gatherings.

“Please be advised that we are no longer allowing (any) protesters across the street from mayors (sic) residence … please make sure every officer in the house knows that if anyone shows up to protest (they) are to be immediately told that it is against the city code and state law to protest on a residential neighborhood,” Roman wrote. “They need to be told to leave immediately.”
After the first warning, Roman said, police should immediately secure the block as well as nearby St. Louis Avenue and Kimball “so that no other protesters come and join.” Protesters could stay by the church nearby, Roman said.
The once venerable Lancet medical journal has put forward Joe Biden as the best choice for Americans’ health, continuing the magazine’s unabashed left-wing activism.

The office of Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) confirmed late Wednesday students and employees of the state’s K-12 schools who refuse to wear masks in the buildings may be faced with a misdemeanor charge.
If a criminal prosecution is sought, though, a school employee or a student — including those in kindergarten — could face a class B misdemeanor. That is the standard for any violation of a public health order, Lehnardt added. And it can be punished with a sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. That is the same level of charge, for example, as a first offense for driving drunk.

LONDON (AP) — The European economy’s rebound from the coronavirus recession slowed in August, as a pick up in new confirmed cases appeared to hobble the reopening of some businesses and travel from their near-complete shutdown in the spring.
Joe Biden vowed to implement a national mask mandate during his Democratic National Convention nomination acceptance speech on Thursday.
During the 2017-2018 season, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza was at or above the epidemic threshold for 16 consecutive weeks. During the past five seasons, the average number of weeks this indicator was above threshold was 11 (range of 7 to 15 weeks). Nationally, mortality attributed to pneumonia and influenza exceeded 10.0% for four consecutive weeks, peaking at 10.8% during the week ending January 20, 2018.
CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2017–2018 season was high with an estimated 45 million people getting sick with influenza, 21 million people going to a health care provider, 810,000 hospitalizations, and 61,000 deaths from influenza (Table 1). The number of cases of influenza-associated illness that occurred during 2017-2018 was the highest since the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, when an estimated 60 million people were sick with influenza (7).
40% of the (29Million) population has had chinavirus at the minimum.

(CNSNews.com) – New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, announced on CNN Friday morning that his state is moving to universal mail-in voting for the upcoming November election.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott extended the state’s disaster declaration due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it will be in place for at least another month — and will probably be extended again in September.
The disaster declaration allows the state to use whatever resources available to combat the virus that “poses an imminent threat of disaster for all counties in the State of Texas.”
AUSTIN (KXAN) — On Friday, Mayor Steve Adler extended the mandatory mask order for the city through Dec. 15.
The order, set to go into effect Sunday, included new guidelines by Austin Public Health for schools.
This comes as Travis County also renewed its mask order the same day.
According to the order, masks covering the nose and mouth are still required when you are outside of your home. This includes inside businesses and commercial entities.
So much for the bring your business to TEXAS phrase.
New coronavirus cases, deaths, and hospitalizations reported over the last seven days are trending downward compared to the previous week, reflecting “improving” conditions on the ground, the COVID Tracking Project conceded on Thursday, echoing data maintained by Johns Hopkins University.
Masks, social distancing and hand washing are futile in efforts to stop an airborne disease. They may satisfy the psychological need to “do something,” but ultimately have no effect.
“I’m not concerned about what he says,” Fauci replied. “It’s a little bit — I think you could say that when he does that, it triggers some of the crazies in society to start threatening me, actually threatening, which actually happens.”
None of these people will die if they contract chinavirus. And the young people are 300 times less likely to become sick from chinavirus than the standard seasonal flu.

SAN ANTONIO – The number of criminal felony cases backlogged in Bexar County has swelled to 8,975 this week, according to Local Administrative Judge Ron Rangel.
When a moratorium on jury service was ordered on March 13, jury trials in all 10 Bexar County criminal district courts were halted. At that time, there was a backlog of 5,519 felony cases.
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said this week there is “no reason” Americans can’t vote in person for the 2020 presidential election, so long as voters follow proper social distancing guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that not be the case,” Fauci told ABC News this week. “If you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why shouldn’t be able to do that.”
