Transpicuous News: Global Update for the past 48 hours

Last night I was moved to start creating a timeline of events in the “Global Shutdown” that is occurring.

I will continue to watch and list the various highlights of the “Pandemic”, and will add some notes from various articles with my thoughts.  I can’t promise that this will be a daily article, but I will try to keep up with it as time permits.  I will also begin to do more recordings on these topics as there are a LOT of different things going on.

This is the note that I posted into several groups that I am part of- specifically the worldschooling groups and families who are traveling groups:

I highly recommend that everyone be prepared for a full lockdown situation no matter where you currently are. The current political situation over the COVID19 “pandemic” is escalating very quickly. My concern is not over the Virus itself, but due to the general public’s reaction, and the actions of Governmental agencies. I have been analyzing the current global actions and it is highly likely that by the end of this next week, almost all governments will place their countries in some aspect of “lockdown”. Regardless of where you currently are, you should have food and necessary supplies to last 2 weeks (if you require medications I strongly suggest having at least 1-2 months supply on hand). This is not about “fear porn”. My recommendations are based on analyzing all the current information and actions of global and local governments and their agencies.

There is a very strong chance that by the end of this week, all EU borders may be closed, and several countries have already shut down all travel into their countries. Due to these shut downs, many of the major airlines are loosing massive stock points, and there is a very high probability that over the next few weeks we could see several more repeats of the Thomas Cook Travel fiasco, stranding travelers globally. Many airlines area already cutting back significantly on flights with even Ryan Air in Europe cancelling over 80% of their flights. Several agencies have stated that most major airlines will be bankrupt by May if governments to not step in with emergency funding.

UK airports warn they may close unless government intervenes

Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester airports have warned that they may have to close down operations unless there is government intervention to help them weather the coronavirus crisis.

The airports’ call came as the International Air Transport Association (Iata) warned that only about 30 of more than 700 airlines operating commercial flights around the world were likely to survive the next few months of the coronavirus crisis without help.

The three UK airports signed a joint letter to the prime minister warning that they may “have to close passenger facilities and halt operations” and that hundreds of thousands of jobs were “instantly at real risk”. Heathrow, Britain’s biggest airport, employs 70,000 people directly.

Health Notes:  several announcements have been made publicly to stay away from Ibuprofen/Advil if you get coronavirus/fever- this goes along with the fact that they are finally figuring out that a huge amount of people during the Spanish flu outbreak in 1918 died due to Aspirin!!  Ann and I talked about this on Saturday’s impromptu UnFuckIt Discussion

FEVERS are what kill the viruses and bacteria!!
