2008 Report: Electric Outages Due to Coal Supply Chain Problems in Pandemic



"Current levels of pandemic planning are likely insufficient to sustain the coal supply chain during a pandemic; the link between the public health response and reliable access to coal-fueled electricity is neither understood nor addressed in current pandemic plans in the United States." They add that the public health sector would have great difficulty functioning without a stable supply of electricity during a pandemic.



"Without coal, more than half of the nation’s lights go out and computers go off. Without coal miners, there is no coal," said Daniel J. Kane, the UMWA's international secretary-treasurer. "Leaving America’s coal miners out of contingency planning for a potential nationwide influenza pandemic makes no sense and puts America at risk.

"Apple sees $27 billion of market value wiped out amid the delayed reopening of its main Chinese iPhone plants."



Apple saw as much as $27 billion in market value erased on Monday following reports that its Chinese production line is limping to full production after a weeks-long shutdown.

Foxconn recently got permission to reopen its Zhengzhou plant, Reuters reported, but only 10% of its employees have returned to work, and other factories remain closed.

The hit to Apple's supply chain "will be a shock to the system," and any attempt to quantify the financial fallout of its production halt is a "mathematical gymnastics exercise," the Wedbush analyst Dan Ives wrote on Sunday.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I made a copy of the list, but my hope is none of us will need it.

I hope not either. Honestly, I think things are going to slow. As long as we don't see surges in other countries, it may start to come under control.

This is solely my opinion but in a quarantine or lockdown situation in the US more people will die not from the virus but by not having access to the medical care which keeps them alive. If you are on dialysis you are dead, life sustaining drugs you are dead, need technology to keep you alive you are dead, go through withdrawal by running out of your meds depends on what meds you are on and available help, if you are aged and alone you are dead, a high risk patient you are dead.

Sorry I disagree. I covered that aerosol and airborne are not in fact, the same thing. Not at all actually. Even the guy that keeps posting on YT says as much. Aerosol in fact lends credence to the possibility this bug was engineered and can hang in the air as opposed to droplets from coughing sneezing. Similar to be sure, yes. And yeah I get your thinking, but the difference is small. Small enough to enter most masks actually. And F masks when now we are on to eyewear and even protecting ears...

Just heard Medical researchers in China found that the incubation period can range up to 24 days, which could possibly explain why it's taking longer than expected for the confirmed cases to blow up in other parts of the World. This study was co-authored by Dr Zhong Nanshan who discovered the SARS virus back in 2003.

Trying to find the published study, will update with link once I find it.

EDIT:


More and more countries have evacuated their citizens from Wuhan, and the standard routine is to place the evacuees under quarantine for 14 days and to monitor their health.

If no symptoms show up within this period of time, they would be identified as uninfected. However, the incubation period of the novel coronavirus can last for more than 14 days, according to the latest study released by Zhong Nanshan, a respiratory expert and head of China’s health commission team investigating the coronavirus outbreak. The study, released on Feb. 9, states that the longest incubation period observed from 1,099 confirmed patients is 24 days.

Based on outside China (early doors stats) statistics



"Outside of mainland China there have been 461 confirmed cases of #coronavirus. Of these cases only 46 have been resolved. 44 cases recovered, and 2 died. Using these numbers we would arrived at a case fatality rate of: (2 * 46 )/100 = 4.34%

I appreciate it is early days, however, I suspect the death rate is about 4%

Not really. Again, a cruise ship is not the regular world. It's an artificial, packed in environment. How many of the world's places are that closely packed?

Most US cities are far more sprawled except for the urban cores.



In a depopulation scenario, i.e. where the CCP is confining people to their apartment buildings, this ship confinement is THE perfect experiment. It will give governments worldwide an idea of what the probable outcome would be if they do the same in their big cities. Trap people to their apartments buildings and let this virus run its course, killing all tenants. Depopulate them and then go to the same to smaller urban areas.

I feel like it's the same when political leaders say that an X shooter was able to do a mass shooting because they took the idea/got inspired from a movie or rap/rock song. They are doing the same thing. getting inspired and copycat-ing from other socialists states.

Of course, this is wild speculation

Droplet and airborne are different. Airborne is in fact aerosol.
The size of the partical plays a huge role in if something is airborne or droplet
Bugs above 5micron are nearly always droplet whereas below 5micron (flu, SARS, Coronavirus, measles, smallpox, chickenpox, TB, anthrax etc are airborne)

I guess you could argue semantics if you want but being aerosolized or airborne gives the particle the ability to hang around in the air for longer periods of time

We wear n95 masks in the hospital for airborne precautions for a reason. It’s a fact that they can effectively prevent particle transfer of bugs at .1 microns

I have refrained from posting such information because I personally didn’t want to report such things

But since people have decided the situation in Wuhan isn’t DESPERATE and all well, I’ll start to post and paint a real picture of desperation

ADVISORY not for the faint hearted

Man hangs himself in public - situation in Wuhan is desperate

To expand on this and semi agree with you aerosol and airborne aren’t completely synonymous as SARS wasn’t completely airborne even though it had the potential. It was aerosolized as droplet nuclei and clung onto other particles but still remained smaller than 5 micron similar to how a purely airborne particle would. Due to the virus size it was still possible for airborne transmission even if not common
I guess because some choose to utilize precautions for both in the same manner doesn’t mean we would agree on specific terminology
