U.S. orders 100,000 more body bags, preparing for coronavirus worst: deaths now exceed 63,000

000000 Body Bags 2

Epic Fail: The COVID-19 epidemic in the U.S. is spiraling out of control just as states push to curtail lock-downs and resume business. The Trump Administration has failed to foresee, plan for, and effectively manage the worsening crisis. Worst; millions of out-of-work Americans are weeks away from homelessness – still waiting for their much-needed stimulus checks which are mired in ever deepening government bureaucracy.

The federal government ordered 100,000 new COVID-19 body bags, in what officials described as preparations for a “worst case” scenario. The giant order last week for “human remains pouches” comes as more than 63,538 Americans have died from COVID-19, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. President Trump on Monday said he expected the pandemic could cost 60,000 to 70,000 lives in the U.S. At the same time, some state governors have moved to start reopening businesses, citing encouraging trends of slowing infection rates. The order for 100,000 body bags, costing $5.1 million, was placed April 21 by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, federal contracting databases show. The supplier, a small California company, is supposed to deliver the bags by May 4, according to the contracting data.

A FEMA spokeswoman said the agency has been focused on a “worst possible case national scenario” from the start of the response effort. “In order to meet the worst-case demand models, FEMA initiated a broad range of acquisition contracts to augment available stocks and produce more human-remains pouches for future requirements should they be needed,” she said. The Defense Department earlier this month said that FEMA asked it to provide 100,000 body bags for civilian use, Bloomberg News reported. The latest purchase is separate from that request, the agency said.

The spokeswoman said the agency has allocated shipments from the earlier DOD contract to hot spots, determined by mortality rates and state requests. She said newer orders are to prepare “should there be any fall resurgence or need to respond to other disasters.” FEMA took over pandemic response coordination from the U.S. Health and Human Services Department in mid-March, and since then has signed more than 100 contracts for items such as personal protective equipment, Covid-19 test kits and diapers for food banks, contracting data shows.  –WSJ

000000 Elderly B

Elderly falling in alarming numbers: The number of nursing homes publicly reporting cases of COVID-19 has doubled in the past week, with more than 1 in 6 facilities nationwide now acknowledging infections among residents or staff, a Washington Post analysis of state and federal data found. The rise is driven in part by newly released information about previous novel coronavirus infections from states including Michigan, Maryland, Kentucky and South Carolina. Some states have not yet publicly released the names of affected nursing homes.

In five states – Maryland, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Georgia and New Jersey – the virus has struck a majority of nursing homes, the data shows. In New Jersey, second only to New York in total number of confirmed coronavirus cases, health officials have reported infections at 80 percent of the state’s homes.  –The Hour

    Body bags may not be just for the virus. Keep an open mind. Could also be used for war deaths also and from terrorists using WMD’s. Keep an open mind. It does seem we are on the brink of not only internal conflict but external. Who? Maybe China and North Korea.

    We could also consider a depopulation program in operation here… Look at the target population: It is the elderly especially those who already have weaken immune systems,sexual diseases and other underlying ailments and the sick whether it be heart disease, lung disease or diabetics. In that, people that are are using valuable resources and not providing any return on the investment and are expendable.

    In daily briefings, it is the population over 65 that are usually the focus regarding quarantines and personal protection and safety.

    It is like the weaken is being weeded out. Depopulation is not new idea. It has been spoken of since the 60’s and out of that movement rose rebellion against authority, anyone over 30 and especially parental authority. Several movies were made pushing the idea.

    Italy also has an aging population. look at the damage caused by the virus there and in the area stricken most by the virus, that area also has the largest Chinese immigrant population in that country according to reports from Italy. But we do not hear how the virus is effecting that community and reports surfacing from that area that they locked down in January 2020.

    I am still convince that an operation is underway by intentionally spreading this virus and keep the economy. I know its has its contagious properties, but I believe its is being helped along.

    I do not think the administration has failed in its attempt to control the spread of this virus. If this is a Biblical style judgment from God, no one contain contain it.

    Just a thought.

    • There is no question it’s being helped along. 5 million people escaped Wuhan before the lock down. Where did all those people go? CCP agents are all over the world- they were involved in bulk mask-buying in the US and Australia. And the only reason China would hide the extent of the virus is because they wanted it to decimate other nations so they would be left with a strategic advantage when the dust finally settled. Google pictures of China’s president, Xi Jinping in a face mask and you see him sometimes wearing a surgical mask, even while visiting hospitals, and sometimes wearing an N95 – which makes no sense – considering the fact that a surgical mask offers the wearer zero protection from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The only thing that one can possibly glean from this is that he is somehow either vaccinated or immune and this is more publicity staging rather than a genuine concern for personal safety.

      This is stark contrast to Putin who dons a full hazmat suit when he visited the hospital with COVID-19 patients:

        According to President Trump, when he closed the Air Bridge, they went to Italy. And I can still buy masks and gloves. From where, China.
