    How they knew is not to difficult. They manufactured it in their own laboratories (as some prophecies foretold would happen). They were careless and reckless with doing such, but it served their agenda for making such a weapon of mass destruction. They communist dictator government lies like a dog and even have the gull to blame other countries, such as America, for creating the bio-weapon. We will make it through this time, but the next will be much much much more deadly and they are evil enough to do such in those communistic led countries. When our Lady of Garabandal said, "when things are at their worst and when communism returns" she did not say it would return through conventional weapon's such as guns and bullet's (though that will be the case one day as well). Communism is much much much more ruthless than this. It seeks to kill and destroy by any means. Communism also lies, lies, lies.... so one cannot gauge just how bad it is there either.

    so I have been reading the comments as a nurse and just wanted to add my observations....not that they the answer but something to think about.

    We will never know the real mortality rate or RO unless we tested every citizen for antibodies. The US is developing a fingerstick by the FDA to ascertain how much of our population is affected and derive an epicenter of the nation....

    Italy has one of the oldest populations in the world and most people in Italy dying are in the 80's range.

    Italy has multigenerational living environments where 3 or more generations live together thus the young, bring disease to their elderly grandparents.

    Italy was late in closing borders and Milan was a world mecca for fashion

    The US is now beginning to experience the crunch we will witness first hand if our mitigation was effective by the beginning of next week.

    I have been called up by my state as a school nurse not working to help the state with the crisis.

    This was voluntary of course

    Please lift up the health care workers in your prayers who are on the front line of this crisis.

    g., Or at least some of them got caught trying to tell the truth to the world, at least in part. Some may have died too though, I do wonder how many. +


    I have a question(s) that many of you may know the answer to. There are no funerals right now, correct? So as a Catholic if we die during this crisis, can we have a funeral after we are buried (I think the answer is no) or should we be cremated and then our remains can be buried at a later date when a funeral mass can be held? +

    Thank you.


    I also promised to give an update on my daughter who lives in NYC and believes that she has bronchitis. She told me on Saturday that she is feeling much better but she is still very worried, of course. Thank you all for your prayers. I am continuing to pray for everyone here and their families. +

    [Now, my youngest said that he had a sore throat last night. He lives with us on LI and we have been pretty cautious for the past 2 weeks or so. I am praying that he feels better today.]

    Hi all. I am praying intensely and likely laid off today. I am praying for all affected and dying and have an older mother and mother-in-law. No one is questioning the hyped up headlines posted here yet I am questioned for posting actual, factual stats, why is this? Is it some people seemingly want to be scared and are mad when they find it might be not fully justified? Or feeling like I don’t care? Why does real facts for the good bother people?

    my intent is simple, put some perspective to assist those excessively worried about this virus. Italy is unique due to age, living conditions and poor health care. So why don’t we look at other countries stats too?

    it isn’t fair to say I’m doing wrong posting about things not being as bad as the headlines. I dig in to prove the risk myself and don’t rely on media to tell me how to feel or what to think.

    take care all, be safe and God bless.

    Bless all Doctors and nurses, especially at this time.

    In Spain things are horrendous but the death curve is finally coming down. So quarantine does work.

    Communist China are starting to let people out. But they're such horrendous liars you can''t believe a single solitary thing they say.

    But bless all Doctors and nurses. I half expect them to all run away. But they never do. So bless them. Prayers.

    It certainly seems like a bio weapon. It is so deadly and effective. Look what it's done, turning the entire world into a giant intensive care unit.

    There is some evidence from South America that good weather does slow down the virus a little. Slows not stops. So coming into Spring a little bit of hope there.

    But honestly if God does not work a mighty miracle we're all up the creek without a paddle.

    But I am confident God will intervene. Not just yet ; but He will. He will. He will.

  7. I don't know if I buy this or not. They're still only guessing. But it does explain the fluctuations of blood pressure that those infected are experiencing.

    The coronavirus did not escape from a lab. Here's how we know.

    As the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 spreads across the globe, with cases surpassing 284,000 worldwide today (March 20), misinformation is spreading almost as fast.

    One persistent myth is that this virus, called SARS-CoV-2, was made by scientists and escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began.

    A new analysis of SARS-CoV-2 may finally put that latter idea to bed. A group of researchers compared the genome of this novel coronavirus with the seven other coronaviruses known to infect humans: SARS, MERS and SARS-CoV-2, which can cause severe disease; along with HKU1, NL63, OC43 and 229E, which typically cause just mild symptoms, the researchers wrote March 17 in the journal Nature Medicine.

    "Our analyses clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus," they write in the journal article.

    Related: 13 coronavirus myths busted by science

    Kristian Andersen, an associate professor of immunology and microbiology at Scripps Research, and his colleagues looked at the genetic template for the spike proteins that protrude from the surface of the virus. The coronavirus uses these spikes to grab the outer walls of its host's cells and then enter those cells. They specifically looked at the gene sequences responsible for two key features of these spike proteins: the grabber, called the receptor-binding domain, that hooks onto host cells; and the so-called cleavage site that allows the virus to open and enter those cells.

    That analysis showed that the "hook" part of the spike had evolved to target a receptor on the outside of human cells called ACE2, which is involved in blood pressure regulation
    . It is so effective at attaching to human cells that the researchers said the spike proteins were the result of natural selection and not genetic engineering.

    Here's why: SARS-CoV-2 is very closely related to the virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which fanned across the globe nearly 20 years ago. Scientists have studied how SARS-CoV differs from SARS-CoV-2 — with several key letter changes in the genetic code. Yet in computer simulations, the mutations in SARS-CoV-2 don't seem to work very well at helping the virus bind to human cells. If scientists had deliberately engineered this virus, they wouldn't have chosen mutations that computer models suggest won't work. But it turns out, nature is smarter than scientists, and the novel coronavirus found a way to mutate that was better — and completely different— from anything scientists could have created, the study found.

    Another nail in the "escaped from evil lab" theory? The overall molecular structure of this virus is distinct from the known coronaviruses and instead most closely resembles viruses found in bats and pangolins that had been little studied and never known to cause humans any harm.

    "If someone were seeking to engineer a new coronavirus as a pathogen, they would have constructed it from the backbone of a virus known to cause illness," according to a statement from Scripps.

    Where did the virus come from? The research group came up with two possible scenarios for the origin of SARS-CoV-2 in humans. One scenario follows the origin stories for a few other recent coronaviruses that have wreaked havoc in human populations. In that scenario, we contracted the virus directly from an animal — civets in the case of SARS and camels in the case of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). In the case of SARS-CoV-2, the researchers suggest that animal was a bat, which transmitted the virus to another intermediate animal (possibly a pangolin, some scientists have said) that brought the virus to humans.

    Related: 20 of the worst epidemics and pandemics in history

    In that possible scenario, the genetic features that make the new coronavirus so effective at infecting human cells (its pathogenic powers) would have been in place before hopping to humans.

    In the other scenario, those pathogenic features would have evolved only after the virus jumped from its animal host to humans. Some coronaviruses that originated in pangolins have a "hook structure" (that receptor binding domain) similar to that of SARS-CoV-2. In that way, a pangolin either directly or indirectly passed its virus onto a human host. Then, once inside a human host, the virus could have evolved to have its other stealth feature — the cleavage site that lets it easily break into human cells. Once it developed that capacity, the researchers said, the coronavirus would be even more capable of spreading between people.

    All of this technical detail could help scientists forecast the future of this pandemic. If the virus did enter human cells in a pathogenic form, that raises the probability of future outbreaks. The virus could still be circulating in the animal population and might again jump to humans, ready to cause an outbreak. But the chances of such future outbreaks are lower if the virus must first enter the human population and then evolve the pathogenic properties, the researchers said.

  8. Seer’s Spiritual Director: Don’t Fear Coronavirus; Fear Sin

    March 22, 2020 by sd


    From CentroMedjugorje:

    Father Petar Ljubicic ofm, priest chosen by the seer Mirjana to reveal the secrets that the Queen of Peace entrusted to her in Medjugorje, to be revealed in due course.

    Fr. Petar, with his usual sympathy and closeness, made the following statement when asked about the coronavirus:

    P. Petar, I just ask you to give us a little message about whether we should be afraid because of the coronavirus.

    «Dear friends, we should not be afraid, this is only a call that we should only be afraid of sin. Do not commit sins, pray, fast, make sacrifices, it is the best remedy against the coronavirus. Fear does not help, but you must have faith and turn away from sin. It is the safest way to fight the virus. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.»

    New York 'celebrates' legalizing abortion until birth as Catholic bishops question Cuomo's faith

    Father Gerald Murray was also exposed to this virus.

    I hope that more people begin to listen to Father Mark Goring. I'm praying that more people hear his plea for repentance and take it very seriously. This video was from 3/11:


    It's Tuesday again and a few weeks ago, I promised that I would post the following each Tuesday.


    Here is the World Over's latest episode in it's entirety:

    World Over - 2020-03-19 - Full Episode with Raymond Arroyo 31,325 views • Mar 19, 2020
    MOST REV. MICHAEL BURBIDGE, Bishop of Arlington, Virginia updates us on what he and the US Bishops are doing to safeguard parishioners from the coronavirus outbreak.
    FR. GERALD MURRAY, pastor of the Church of the Holy Family in New York City tells us how he is managing his parish despite being in self quarantine after being exposed to the coronavirus.
    DR. RAY GUARENDI, EWTN Radio host and author of Raising Upright Kids in an Upside Down World offers some advice to parents on how to manage family and maintain sanity during the pandemic.
    NICHOLAS Di iorio, Community Engagement Officer at New York City Relief on their work serving those who struggle with homelessness.

    Edited to add two local news stories for people who live on LI in Suffolk county specifically as I do:

    and the following article which has some info for Nassau County also:

    From the above article-

    What's happening today:
    • As of Tuesday morning, Nassau County had 2,869 confirmed cases of coronavirus, while Suffolk had 1,880.
    • Suffolk District Attorney Timothy Sini tested positive for coronavirus and was working from home, his aide said.
    • LI town supervisors urged Gov. Andrew Cuomo to extend property tax deadlines for some homeowners.
    • The Tokyo Olympics were officially postponed until 2021, officials announced.
    • Officials said they expected to reach a deal on a nearly $2 trillion measure aimed at easing the economic damage inflicted by coronavirus.

    I'm haven't lost my peace about this virus other than taking prudent precautions and continuing the preparations that need to be made because I know in my heart that this is not "it". "It", whatever "it" is, is on the horizon headed toward us like a stalking horse. This was simply a wake up call. As Daniel O'Connor so wisely laid out, it's the warning before the warning before The Warning.

    This is the drug Trump talked about. He's going to be proven right (once again) and this is going to blow over much more quickly than most fear and without the millions of deaths. But beware the false dawn, as it is only that. The events have begun and this virus outbreak will seem like nothing in retrospect. Most of us will think we were saved and go about our business as this gets stamped out pretty quickly due to the wise social distancing and the quick reaction of doctor's willing to try these treatments:

    Without real repentence from the top down--Pope and people and all others here and abroad we will not see an end to these increasing chastisements. Like Pharoah hardening his heart we seem to be in a country where many harden their hearts the worse things get. (Dems) and thank God many soften their hearts to hear God's voice. The Winnowing. Its astonishing to watch.
