This is literally psychological torture. Imagine being locked up at home every night, forced to listen to a female cop slowly driving by your house with the sirens on full blast. They want to induce people in a state of terror, nothing more.Quebec in Canada is on full lockdown at nights. Nobody allowed out unless essential worker?
I don't think there's constitutional authority to institute such lockdown in the US.Quebec in Canada is on full lockdown at nights. Nobody allowed out unless essential worker?
When Biden gets in does anyone know how a Federal mandate for a full national lockdown would work if the Red states dissent? How would they handle it?

Statistics suggest that the proportion of NHS beds occupied by patients is actually lower than usual.
The data shows hospitals were at about 87 percent capacity in December and early January.
This figure was increased to just over 90 percent during the same period for London and the South East.
So for every 10 hospital beds available in England, roughly nine had a patient occupying them on any given day.
This occupancy rate is, however, noticeably lower than normal.
During a normal winter, occupancy for hospital beds tends to average between 93 and 95 percent.
But NHS England warns against using comparisons such as these, because it’s not possible to compare like-for-like exactly how hospitals are being run.
Effectively, bed occupancy shows how many beds are available if patients need them, but fails to paint a picture of how much work is needed to tend to these beds.
This figure is set to reduce the risk of staff becoming overstretched or being unable to deal with an unexpected surge in patents for whatever reason.
The Covid crisis has meant hospital bosses have deemed it necessary to ensure there’s even more wiggle room than usual due to the rapid rate at which the virus spreads.
The number of patients in hospitals in England with the virus has increased by 8,000 since the start of December, hitting a record high of 22,534 at the beginning of the month.
And another effect of the pandemic is the impact on healthcare staff themselves.
Once the virus is prevalent in a community, hospital staff inevitably need to take time off due to sickness or self isolation.
During the first wave in April, 6.7 percent of staff were absent from work, compared with just four percent in 2019.
So it’s understandable that while hospitals are feeling the increased pressure this winter, they also need to ensure they have enough room to manoeuvre and plan for unexpected crises.
Outside the NHS, the Government is able to work with private hospitals and look at using the Nightingale hospitals, but this is also likely to be affected by staffing shortages and pressure.
The way the government is screaming now about hospitals "so called" all being over-run and in "disaster mode". You'd expect all Nightingale hospitals would have been opened up by now. None have and the last pictures we saw of them - showed they was all stripped bare since. Is that why they ain't opening them, because they know they can't and still all stripped bare?
Makes you wonder if the Nightingale hospitals was just another stunt the government pulled for some to make money out bogus contracts
Building the Nightingales was kneejerk response to China building 14 new hospitals to manage the outbreak. Everything we do is on the back of China as well as total miscalculation and error-riddled data spreadsheets by scientists who use the same software they developed their climate change models with. Errors compounded by errors compounded by ego+power+control initiatives by the Government and WHO.
Probably in June. Probably small blackouts in west with news of grid problems. they are testing it in Pakistan first. Theres a new calendar supposedly it happens in 21st.View attachment 28279
How long until this hits Europe? I bet February.
I made a separate thread for this.
I think this is deserving it's own thread. More and more info is coming out indicating that a cyber attack on the power grid is in the making. Possible scenario is launching military attack on Iran to which 'Iran' will respond with a cyber attack. This will serve two purposes: to create chaos...www.rooshvforum.com
In france too they are using the covid crisis as an excuse to downsize the whole hospital sector.TLDR: people are dying needlessly of causes unrelated to China Virus because hospitals might be overcrowded.
This is despite the huge empty Nightingale Hospitals built last year.
And we are told to stay at home to protect the NHS from being overwhelmed.
