Philippine Capital Returning to Lockdown as Virus Surges, These Types of Headlines

Will Be a Common Occurrence in the Days Ahead, Global Citizens Are About to Experience Hard Lockdown via the New World Order Tyrants…

Our government has been overthrown. As evidenced by Trump’s capitulation on the border, his recent servitude to the GMO industry and his acquiescence to the warmongers, our President has been compromised. Our liberties are being eliminated one by one. Gun confiscation is next. The Constitution is gasping its last breaths. Our borders are destroyed and our culture has been turned upside down by every perversion known to man.

The watchman does not confuse truth with consensus. The Watchman does not confuse God’s word with the word of those who happen to hold power at present, or with the opinion of the majority. This is because powerholders and the majority can fall victim to a lying spirit-and this means a power that actually seizes the majority of experts, the political leadership, and the public.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippine president has agreed to place the capital and outlying provinces back under a lockdown after medical groups warned that the country was waging “a losing battle” against the coronavirus amid an alarming surge in infections.

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said Monday that metropolitan Manila, the capital region of more than 12 million people, and five densely populated provinces will revert to stricter quarantine restrictions for two weeks starting Tuesday.

The move, which economic officials oppose, will again prohibit non-essential travel outside of homes.ADVERTISEMENT

President Rodrigo Duterte relaxed the country’s lockdown on June 1 in an effort to restart the stalled economy.

Under the new restrictions, police checkpoints will return to ensure only authorized people, including medical personnel and workers in vital companies, venture out of their homes, Interior Secretary Eduardo Ano said.

Other businesses previously allowed to partly reopen, including barbershops, internet cafes, gyms, dine-in restaurants, massage and tattoo shops, drive-in cinemas and tourist destinations, will again be closed. Authorized companies including banks, health and food processing firms can operate partly but need to shuttle their employees between home and work. Workers can travel by bike, motorcycle and private car, but mass transit will be closed.

Many expressed support for the medical workers but reactions were mixed on the lockdown’s return. Allan Espanola, a 33-year-old jobless man, said it will bring more burdens to the people. “We’ll suffer more. It’s like we’re going to square one again,” he said.

“Any lockdown is not effective on its own. It should be accompanied by a strong health response,” opposition Sen. Risa Hontiveros said.

Businesses in the capital and outlying regions comprise about 67% of the national economy and the Duterte administration has walked a tightrope between public health and economic revival. The economy contracted slightly in the first quarter but is likely facing a deep recession from the massive business closures that started when Duterte declared a strict lockdown in mid-March.

Leaders of nearly 100 medical organizations held a rare online news conference Saturday and warned that the health system has been overwhelmed by infection spikes and may collapse as health workers fall ill or resign from exhaustion and fear. They asked Duterte to reimpose a tight lockdown in the capital to allow the government to give health workers “a time out” and allow the government to recalibrate its response to the pandemic.

“We are waging a losing battle against COVID-19 and we need to draw up a consolidated, definitive plan of action,” the groups said in a letter to Duterte that they read publicly.

They expressed fears to Duterte that the Philippine coronavirus crisis may worsen like in the United States.ADVERTISEMENT

The Department of Health reported a jump of more than 3,200 confirmed coronavirus cases on Monday, bringing the country’s total to 106,330, including more than 2,100 deaths. The Philippines has the second-highest number of confirmed cases in Southeast Asia after Indonesia, and has had more reported infections than China, where the pandemic began late last year.

While he granted the demand, Duterte appeared irritated after the medical groups went public with critical remarks, saying they could have talked to him first.

“If you will stage a revolution, you will give me the free ticket to stage a counter-revolution. How I wish you would do it,” Duterte said in televised remarks Sunday night.

“You yourself don’t have any solution. What are you babbling about?” Duterte said.

He floated the idea of tapping civilian reservists to be placed under military control, including his daughter who is a city mayor and police nurses and medics, if exhausted doctors and nurses leave their anti-pandemic work.

Summary:

  • Global COVID cases top 18 million
  • Australia imposes tighter lockdown on Melbourne
  • Duterte revives Manilla lockdown
  • COVID US cases slow
  • HK reports 80 new cases, first reading below 100 in two weeks
  • Gottlieb says lockdowns may not always be most appropriate solution

New coronavirus flareups that have emerged over the past few weeks across Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and Australia have driven global infection rates to their highest levels yet. By early Monday morning in New York, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 had surpassed 18 million…

…as the world reports roughly 250,000 new cases a day, leaving the world on track to surpass 19 million by the end of the week.

Lockdowns initially helped Europe, China, South Korea and parts of the US to suppress the virus. But similar measures adopted by Australia’s Victoria State – home of the country’s second-biggest city, Melbourne – have failed to suppress a second-wave of the outbreak.

While analysts at JPM question whether lockdowns are the smartest strategy to confront outbreaks in the second wave, Australia’s Victoria state has doubled down, announcing Monday that it would shut down large parts of its retail and manufacturing sectors for another six weeks.

One day after declaring a state of disaster, Premier Daniel Andrews also announced that construction firms must radically reduce the number of workers on-site across the city. While essential services such as banks, supermarkets, pharmacies and petrol stations remain open, production at meat-processing plants across Victoria will be reduced by one-third, potentially limiting supplies of meat and driving up food prices during already trying times.

The new measures will also limit movement and activity at night, and ultimately cause 1 million workers to stay home, according to the BBC.

Workers forced to stay home can apply for benefits to compensate them for some of their lost wages, up to

Despite imposing a strict lockdown three weeks ago (these new measures add to the restrictions already in place), the outbreak in Victoria has continued to worsen. Until about 4 weeks ago, Australia held the title of one of the most successful virus response efforts of any anglophone country. But a seemingly unstoppable outbreak centered around Melbourne has brought the country to its worst place yet.

Elsewhere in Asia, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the country’s capital, Manila, back on lockdown starting Aug. 4 after the country recorded its biggest single-day jump in new cases yet, with 3,226 new infections confirmed and 46 additional deaths. That marked the fourth straight day that the Philippines had recorded a new record jump in infections, putting it on track to surpass Indonesia as the country with the biggest outbreak in Southeast Asia.

Health officials announced that the country’s total confirmed cases had reached 106,330 confirmed cases and 2,104 deaths.

In the US, which saw the number of new cases reported decline again on Sunday, Dr. Birx warned last night that the virus is more widespread than ever across the country, while Dem leader Nancy Pelosi said she didn’t have much confidence in Dr. Birx, whom she denounced as an unreliable Trump appointee.

Another silver lining: Hong Kong reported 80 new cases, the first time in 12 days that the SAR reported a daily rise of fewer than 100 new cases. A team of Chinese officials are rolling out a new mass-testing regime in the quasi-autonomous territory that is still reeling from a new national security law imposed by Beijing that cracks down on political dissent.

Finally: During his daily appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box”, former FDA head Scott Gottlieb said  governments should work toward a “happy medium” of closures and restrictions that does the least amount of damage to the economy while keeping the virus mostly at bay.

“The question is: can they hang on to those gains, or are they being quietly seeded right now”…the bottom line question is targeted mitigation – you close bars….you move activities outside – combined with universal masking…is that enough to keep the virus at bay,”

“If it can, then we may have found some kind of happy medium if you will between lockdowns and unfettered spread.”

NJ COVID-19 Transmission Rate Highest In Months; Manchester Declares “Major Incident” To Fight Outbreak

Summary:

  • UK activates declares “major incident” in Manchester to combat COVID
  • Cuomo says students, teachers must be confident for in-person learning to return
  • Florida cases drop, deaths lowest in weeks
  • NJ “R” rate hits highest rate in months
  • Melbourne declares “state of emergency” 3 weeks into lockdown
  • Victoria reports 671 new cases
  • US cases climbed 58,908 (+1.3%) yday, slowest rate in 5 days
  • Mexico death toll tops UK for 3rd place
  • India cases top 1.75 mil
  • Democratic rep tests positive
  • Vietnam reports 2 more deaths

* * *

Update (1515ET): COVID-19 cases haven’t really come back all that much in the UK.

While there has been a slight uptick, as some epidemiologists have described it, warnings about a dire ‘second wave’ hitting just as children are supposed to be returning to school have prompted local officials in the new “hotspots” including part of northern Manchester to declare a “major incident”, according to the leader of the City Council, who was quoted in the British press.

Notably, the announcement comes just after Mexico officially (according to Johns Hopkins and Bloomberg) surpassed the UK for the world’s third-highest death toll. The British people have been left shellshocked from a brutal outbreak that impacted up to half of long-term care homes in some of the worst-hit parts of the country. UK-wide, 4 in 10 homes were affected, and the dead likely number in the tens of thousands.

* * *

Update (1405ET): US cases are on track for another day-on-day decline following the lowest aggregate number in five days.

In New York, Gov Andrew Cuomo – as promised – announced that parents and teachers must be comfortable before returning to the classroom, and therefore, in the state of New York, teachers and students will have the option of continuing with remote learning.

He also released the state’s latest numbers.

While Cuomo promised to come up with a detailed reopening plan that would accommodate those who wish to continue with remote learning, media reports citing sources within Cuomo’s office trashed NYC (and its mayor, Cuomo’s top political rival) for submitting an “outline” of a reopening strategy – not the fully fleshed out plan that some had apparently been expecting, ABC7 reports.

Florida reported 7,104 (+1.5%) cases on Sunday, lower than the previous week’s average of 2.8%. Reported deaths among residents was 62, the lowest in weeks.  The state’s total has climbed to 487,132 cases and 7,084 deaths among residents, leaving it in 2nd place nationwide behind California in terms of number of cases.

On the political side, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she doesn’t trust information on the pandemic from the head of the White House’s coronavirus task force, Dr. Deborah Birx.

Birx “is [Trump’s] appointee so I don’t have confidence there, no,” Pelosi told ABC.

Across the Hudson in Trenton, Gov Murphy announced that NJ’s transmission rate continued to creep up, with it hitting 1.49, according to data posted on the state’s website, the highest rate in months, and double the level from the mid-June lows.

The rate indicates the average number of people infected by each patient, and is supposed to measure whether the outbreak is expanding, or contracting.

* * *

Across the Sun Belt, the number of coronavirus cases reported daily has continued to decline, but the outbreak is intensifying across Europe, and – most alarmingly – in Melbourne, which is becoming a new global symbol of SARS-CoV-2’s intransigence, as one of the most restrictive lockdowns in the world has failed to squelch the latest outbreak.

Although the alarmism peddled in some corners of the media probably isn’t warranted, Melbourne has seen its daily confirmed totals climb to new records day after day. With the public pressure mounting three weeks after the new lockdown began (with no progress having been made), state officials have tightened restrictions and declared a state of disaster on Sunday.

The decision comes as Victoria State Premier Daniel Andrews announced 671 new cases in the past 24 hours with seven deaths. More than 380 people were being treated in the hospital, with 38 in intensive care.

Andrews’ state of disaster will begin at 6pm Sunday, and allow police the added powers to enforce social distancing restrictions.

Metropolitan Melbourne will be under a curfew limiting movement between 8 pm and 5 am. These new restrictions will be in place for (at least) six weeks.

Australia has recorded about 17,000 infections and ~200 deaths so far, with the majority of these in Victoria.

In North America, the number of new US cases rose by 58,908 (+1.3%), the smallest daily jump in at least five days, according to data maintained by Johns Hopkins & Bloomberg.

That’s less than the 1.6% average for the past 7 days. Deaths have increased by 946, coming in below 1,000 for the first time in five days.

Of course, some of this pullback could be due to the closings of testing centers in Florida in areas threatened by hurricane Isaias.

South of the border, Mexico’s soaring death toll has become the third largest in the world (though that’s not yet reflected in this chart).

Only the US and Brazil have recorded more deaths. Mexico has now suffered at least 46,688 deaths during the pandemic, with a total of 424,637 infections.

India has seen the number of new cases finally start to wane, yet the country’s COVID-19 caseload passed 1.75 million on Sunday after another spike of 54,735 in the past 24 hours. That’s down from 57,118 on Saturday. The Health Ministry on Sunday also reported 853 deaths for a total of 37,364.

In some of the densest slums of Mumbai and New Delhi, contact tracers have gathered evidence showing that nearly half of the population, in some places, will test positive for antibodies.

Days after Texas Rep Louie Gohmert tested positive for the virus, Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva announced late yesterday that he had become infected, and unsurprisingly, is already jumping to conclusions.

“While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously…Numerous Republican members routinely strut around the Capitol without a mask to selfishly make a political statement at the expense of their colleagues, staff, and their families.”

Vietnam reported two more deaths from the coronavirus on Sunday, raising the country’s death toll to five, all in the last few days.

As Sunday begins in the US, will the number of new cases continue to fall? Thanks to a series of ‘teenage house parties’, Connecticut and New Jersey have reported “mini-boomlets” of the virus over the past week or so.

The World Is In Big Trouble, for Those That Believe We Will Go Back to Some Sense of Normal Life Here on Earth, You Will Be Sadly Disappointed, Seven and Half Years of Hell on Earth Which Began January 1, 2020

In police-state fashion, Big Tech took the list of accused (including this site), declared all those named guilty and promptly shadow-banned, de-platformed or de-monetized us all without coming clean about how they engineered the crushing of dissent, Now more than ever big Tech has exposed there hand engaging in devious underhanded tactics to make the sinister look saintly, one of Satan’s greatest weapons happens to be deceit…

The accumulating death toll from Covid-19 can be seen minute-by-minute on cable news channels. But there’s another death toll few seem to care much about: the number of poverty-related deaths being set in motion by deliberately plunging millions of Americans into poverty and despair.

American health care, as we call it today, and for all its high-tech miracles, has evolved into one of the most atrocious rackets the world has ever seen. By racket, I mean an enterprise organized explicitly to make money dishonestly.

All the official reassurances won’t be worth a bucket of warm spit. The Globals are behind the CoronaVirus, It Is a Man-Made Bioweapon.

For those of you who care, Google and your favorite social media platforms have misled you, and now we all pay a heavy price for trusting the ungodly, Google and company knew exactly what they were doing, removing our history while preparing you to accept the New World Order playbook, Enjoy
