    Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if the virus "slows down" we'd still be at risk. It's not like slowing down the virus spread will get rid of the effects once one catches. How long do you suppose they'd find treatment for the "shut down" to be lifted? Trying to slow down the virus could be an illusion of control. Until there is treatment, what situation would we need to be in in order to lift the shut down?

    Right, all we can do now is slow down the rate of infection. The virus is here and we will all be exposed to it, eventually. As to lifting things, I assume that simply depends on the numbers...

    We need more Covid-19 testing, my wife is quarantined at home with symptons of having a mild case of Covid-19 like occasional dry coughing, slight fever, shortness of breath, and tightness in her chest. Other than seasonal allergy symptoms, like red itchy eyes, sneezing, mild soreness and a mild headache, I feel fine. However, neither my wife nor I can get a Covid-19 test due to them being too much in short supply in order to be administered to those who aren't deathly ill.

    It would probably take a long time to slow down. If it's like the common cold and flu, even though we know how to treat it, we still haven't got rid of it. Nature takes it course.

    Yes, that is why we are trying so hard to 'flatten the curve' ( = slowing down infection rate). But the virus is here tor good - and since it is a cold virus I am not confident a vaccine will be found quickly. Hopefully I am wrong!

    The atmosphere is natural. And it is the life support of all humans. Heavy metal irradiation attacks as put into our atmosphere by scientists, made the ICE melt.

    ICE was involved in cooling the radiation ground fall...so radiation was not being cooled as it should be cooled.

    Even before the new atmospheric experiments life had been attacked due to the power plant irradiation of natural life.

    As ICE is melting a new amount of evaporated mass gets put into the atmosphere.

    Spring is when ICE melts...so more water will get put into the atmosphere. Which changes the amount of water in the atmosphere.

    So between autumn and spring before winter removes and snap freezes the water again...the virus hopefully will get removed by water mass changing the vibration/microbes that live in the water that make us sick. For water does own in its presence the holy star pattern of vibration.

    + the cross of sea of son, was a taught scientific healer aware knowledge about why life being sacrificed is changed as a natural atmospheric spirit of the Heavens.

    Not at all. Sowing it down, flattening the curve, we'll still get about the same amount of infected people, but theu are drawn out over a longer period of time, and the better we do thisthe better it is for the medical system, who can deal with the surge over time rather than having it all dumped on them at once.

    It's by definition. We are all in illusion of control as if the world wraps around us. A good security blanket. A lot of it is part of human nature. Culture defines the extent and perspective in which we try to control things. Some more than others.

    It would help to have an effective vaccine and a competent government.

    That is totally wrong. We can look at the responses of different countries and see a degree of control over this, or destructive lack of. This idea that control is an illusion, right now, given the circumstances, I would say thats probably more reckless than saying vaccines cause autism. We can exert a degree of control over this, amd better we do the fewer people who will die.

    Well, that's how nature works. We try to gain control over the uncontrollable. Of course some methods to attempts to control that are beneficial for humans etc. No one questions the theology of it. To put it in context, we're not god. Why in the world can we think we can control nature (viruses are part of nature) in and of itself?

    I'm not saying trying to control nature for some cases is wrong if justifying it for the benefit of people. In and of itself, we don't have control over life. I think once we get out of that, we'd respond to things better. We find a vaccine, cool. We don't, nature runs its course. We do what we can, just find ways to grieve when "we accept" we can't. It doesn't mean give up, it just means don't "be god."
