COVID-19: THE FINAL WORD!

1918 repeating itself.

The Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic is only Darwinian evolution at its best, the way of nature to cleanse the population of its weakest elements.”

The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims. The 1918 flu was first observed in Europe, the United States and parts of Asia before swiftly spreading around the world. At the time, there were no effective drugs or vaccines to treat this killer flu strain.
Like for the Covid-19 virus, the influenza attacked the respiratory system and was very contagious: When an infected person coughed, sneezed or talked, respiratory droplets were generated and transmitted into the air, and could be inhaled by anyone nearby. Additionally, a person who touched something with the virus on it and then touched his or her mouth, eyes or nose could become infected.


The first wave of the 1918 pandemic occurred in the spring and was generally mild. The sick, who experienced such typical flu symptoms as chills, fever and fatigue, usually recovered after several days, and the number of reported deaths was low. However, a second, highly contagious wave of influenza appeared with a vengeance in the fall of that same year.
While systems for alerting public health authorities of infectious spread did exist in 1918, they did not generally include influenza, leading to a delayed response.


Nevertheless, actions were taken: Maritime quarantines were declared; Social distancing measures were introduced; schools, theatres, and places of worship were closed; public transportation was limited and mass gatherings banned. Wearing face masks became common and even mandatory in some places and there were debates over their efficacy. There was also some resistance to their use. At the end, before the virus ended its deadly global march, like for the Covid-19, businesses were shuttered and bodies piled up in makeshift morgues.


A later study found that measures such as banning mass gatherings and requiring the wearing of face masks could cut the death rate up to fifty percent, but this was dependent on them being imposed early in the outbreak and not being lifted prematurely.


Fighting the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic


When the 1918 flu hit, doctors and scientists were unsure what caused it or how to treat it and there were no effective vaccines or antivirals, drugs that treat it. Additionally, hospitals were so overloaded with flu patients that schools and other buildings had to be converted into makeshift hospitals.
Officials, in some communities, imposed quarantines, ordered citizens to wear masks and shut down public places, including schools, churches and theaters. People were advised to avoid shaking hands and to stay indoors. Furthermore, with no cure for the flu, like for Trump at his best, many ignorant doctors recommended dangerous products and ineffective medications that they felt would alleviate symptoms. Funeral parlors were overwhelmed and bodies piled up. The flu was also detrimental to the economy. Businesses were forced to shut down. Basic services were hindered. In some places there weren’t enough farm workers to harvest crops.

Without a vaccine or approved treatment plan, it fell to local mayors and healthy officials to improvise plans to safeguard the safety of their citizens. With pressure to appear patriotic at wartime and with a censored media downplaying the disease’s spread, many made tragic decisions. Finally, by the spring of 1920, the H1N1 Influenza pandemic came to an end by itself, as those that were infected either died or developed immunity.


Stop the Bunkum!


Stop all that bunkum, that nonsense and all that verbal diarrhea about Covid-19. Like for 1918, like it or not, we are stuck with that pandemic for at least 18 more months. Like for the H1N1 Influenza pandemic of 1918, unless we immediately enforce full mandatory social distancing and shutdowns of all public places, there is nothing that will stop the pandemic other than time.History is only repeating itself: No knowledge of what the **** is hitting us; No vaccine; Denial and late response; Misguidance and misinformation, everything contributing to incidents of xenophobia, discrimination and racism.


The Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic is only Darwinian evolution at its best, the way of nature to cleanse the population of its weakest elements.

Covid-19: Time For You To Change The Way You Do Business!

For most small businesses, if they are to survive the coronavirus and its aftermath, it is time to change the way they do business.

The coronavirus pandemic has pushed the economy into a slowdown of unknown severity. It could be a long, drawn-out recession, or a sharp dip followed by a swift recovery. Investors are already anticipating several epicenters of economic pain. Oil companies, airlines, hotels, restaurants, retailers and automakers will report steep losses and issue forecasts for the coming months.

It is no surprise that the virtual lock-down of large swaths of the  worldwide population has delivered a big blow to the economy, which is driven by consumer spending. But investors are intensely interested in whether traditional businesses will be able to survive and adapt to potentially huge changes in consumers’ spending priorities.

In industries that are seriously hammered by the outbreak, some might do better than others. In the restaurant industry, for example, some chains are more likely to thrive when most diners are not leaving home much or at all. Chains with an established takeout and delivery business, such as Domino’s and Papa John’s, are growing fast with the help of online ordering, while other fast-food companies that are heavily dependent on business from commuters might struggle.

The same may be said for all businesses large or small, from Amazon to the small corner business with an established E-Commerce Online Store Set Up. These businesses  are and will be still growing fast in the aftermath of the coronavirus with the help on their online ordering service. Most other traditional businesses that are heavily relying and dependent on business from commuters are already struggling and some are most likely not to survive.

You are a small business and you want to survive! You want to thrive in the aftermath of the pandemic and you do not have and E-commerce Online Store! Maybe it is time for you to consider the need to change how you do business.

Covid-19 Small Business Survival

Tech firms see the opportunity they have been waiting for as shoppers and business recoil from paper money. Who’s hurt when legal tender goes away?

If you are nor online, you are not making any money. You are missing out!

 

HOW TO SURVIVE THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS

AND ITS AFTERMATH

By: Michel Ouellette JMD

CHAPTER ONE

Is the Coronavirus Killing Off Cash?

From the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, stores and businesses were shuttering all over the World and many of those that were still open were balking at cash. Shoppers were switching orders to Amazon and Walmart.com. Many stores and businesses that have stayed open would not take cash requiring customers to pay either by debit or credit cards or paying first online. What once seemed like the oldest, most reliable way of paying suddenly seems a thing of the past.

The Coronavirus crisis drove businesses and people to prefer credit and debit payments to cash; a shift that is here to last. Digital payments are quick, clean and easy and that shift is now representing a huge opportunity for all retail and services businesses around the world. People did learn from their Coronavirus experience and, for many, this means no longer walking in a store or and office.

For years, I have been pushing toward a more virtual, less cash-based business and payments system, and pressing businesses and business owners to go online to free them from the uncertainty of being paid for their products or services and increase their sales and cashflow tenfold. The Coronavirus crisis is now providing me with one more argument to justify that business model: Due to the coronavirus crisis, people that resisted to shop on line are now realizing how easy, economical and efficient it could be.

The only people I know that would not benefit from such a transition are the older and poorer people that tend to be more reliant on paper money either for lack of tech savvy, out of habit or because they do not participate in the formal banking system, the poorer and vulnerable people that do not have access to banks or credit cards.

You want to help these people!

For the duration of the pandemic, give them your products and provide them with your services free of charge. Donate to them directly, personally, the same way you donate to your preferred church or charity. This is good business. These people will be very grateful and let other people know about what you have done for them. Just do not forget to deduct these “promotional expenses” from your taxable income.

Some other people will still resist going online or using their credit card because they think that how they spend their money is nobody’s business, especially the taxation officer. Just take their money and put it in your left pocket. This is still good business. Just do not provide them with a receipt.

Money habits can be hard to break

The Covid-19 pandemic, has forced every one of us to change our spending habits almost overnight. It took years for ATMs to replace visits to human bank tellers. Now this is common ground. After resisting the move for years, many businesses started accepting credit cards and online payments either through their website or bank transfer. This shift in behavior is here to stay and for most businesses, it is now the right time to integrate in their business model infrastructure to support mobile banking and digital payments.

For others, the Coronavirus crisis is the rightful and legitimate occasion to turn their operations and business into fully cashless environments, that kind of economy, that long-held dream that I have been promoting for years. It is much, much faster to send money via the internet than to mail a check. It is much, much faster to get paid via the internet than waiting for the check in the mail.

CHAPTER TWO

Where is the money going?

Starting with day one of the Coronavirus crisis, items that were once necessities become luxuries, increasingly strapped people around the world were re-evaluating what they were spending their money on and how they were spending it.

For many, as the coronavirus pandemic ravaged the world, new items and goods delivered in boxes seemed a safer bet than walking into stores. Suddenly, like many others, people became hyper aware of their expenses and were now taking a painful daily look at their financial priorities: Was that $5 monthly web magazine subscription really necessary? How much does watering the garden cost? When, in order to survive, where they going to need to tap into their savings?

“We are OK for now,” they were all saying. “But soon, the bottom may fall out from under us.”

As millions of people lose jobs, take pay cuts, close businesses and absorb family members into their homes, they were being forced to rethink where their money was going. Even before the scramble for new jobs can begin, people were cajoling creditors, looking for gig work or simply cutting back to get through the first few disorienting weeks of the Coronavirus outbreak.

For some, the question was simple as whether to by a jigsaw puzzle to keep from going corona crazy, and how much to tip the person that would deliver it. But for many others, the stakes were far higher: a good credit score sacrificed to pay off certain bills before others, or dinners rationing so that cash for groceries can be repurposed for an emergency fund.

To save money, heaters have been turned down, clothing sales ignored and auto insurance policies canceled. Vacations Plans turned into at-home entertainment and long sessions with Netflix, Disney Plus and Zoom. Rents were going unpaid as people spend weeks waiting for government aid to arrive.

An economic shock like this would certainly and definitely have a long-term impact on people who have traditionally felt like they were being cautious, that they were not squandering with their money, but did not have to worry about paying for rent or affording food. They might have more debt, which will make it harder to spend in the future, or they might just feel insecure.

Even when the economy was strong, many were in a precarious financial position, ill prepared to weather even minor disruptions and often weighed down by debt. Today, many of these people are experiencing a complete loss of income and on the verge of even loosing either their business or home. Those people are now relying on either good will from strangers or programs from corporations and the government to stay afloat.

For some people, many of whom have never seriously budgeted, are now mapping out strict spending schedules for the next few months. They get really creative. They eat little half meals, and they experiment with their seasonings and condiments to try to forget that they are eating the same thing over and over. They try to reschedule when monthly bills are due so she can space out the payments.

More than half of lower-income adults in North America say they will struggle to pay bills this month, compared to a quarter of their middle-income counterparts and 11 percent of those in the upper-income tier. Over all, more than half of those who expect a government stimulus infusion will use most of the money to cover essential expenses. One in five will save the funds to cover expenses further down the road.

To create a financial buffer, many people are hunting for freelance or part-time work or are working overtime in an attempt to drum up new business. For the last few weeks, for most people that I met online, they are all completely overwhelmed by their shortfall of income. For most of them, and they are not alone, while focusing on being able to afford groceries and maybe the house and car payments, they are all being stretched thin emotionally. They are totally exhausted at the end of the day.”

CHAPTER THREE

Going Online

“If you are not online, you are not making any money”

Following my predictions and recommendations, small business and shop owners are now launching “Online Stores” to either stay open or survive after the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you are like many other entrepreneurs, for years, you wanted to venture into online sales for your business, but could never find the time. Now, with the pandemic shutting down most retail stores and nonessential businesses, it is only common sense to invest your time and money in doing so. The process is not really easy and may be costly and time consuming but the bottom-line results are certainly worth it. If you are not online, you are not only making any money but you are also losing money.

For many business owners that decided to go that route, the last several weeks have been chaotic and frantic, but the hard work is beginning to pay off. The response from customers has been amazing. Many businesses are now rushing to offer online sales or expand their available product line to keep their businesses afloat and meet customer demand. And this is only common sense.

Getting creative

Around the world, online store creations jumped by seventy-five per cent when comparing the second week of April to the first week in March. Some entrepreneurs have been very creative to offer the same product or service online as they did in-store. Despite the investment and long hours involved, their sales are going up their costs are going down and they are doing even better than before the pandemic.

For most of them, it is just non-stop work providing services, fulfilling and delivering orders. It is even busy, seven days a week.

The challenge

One more time: “If you are not online, you are losing money”

Creating an online store is often challenging for small businesses. Because of the many steps it can take, it can be a tedious process. It is definitely work, but it is important work right now. Really, if you are not online, you are not making any money and even losing money.

If you are not going online now, you are not only losing money, you are jeopardizing your future.

Look at the Covid-19 is a business opportunity

Even with the country in lockdown, a number of entrepreneurs are plunging ahead with new ventures. From pet services to food delivery and even advertising, many companies are forging ahead with launch plans. Some are even focusing their startup on issues related directly to the virus. For most of them, they find that the new, challenging environment actually presents an advantage for their startup.

When offering online services, your customers no longer have to walk in your store or offices to see your products, negotiate your services and process the credit card payment. All this interaction is now happening online.

Right now, people are really out of options, and do not know how to move forward with some sort and any kind of gathering. People are going online for everything and this trend is here to grow even further and stay.

For many services businesses going online, they offer a free phone consultation to start, and then propose other services susceptible to satisfy their customers’ needs. From the beginning, the introduction offers to the end, cashing the money of the customer, everything is done online.

If you are a retailer or distributor, going online is even easier.

There are a lot of opportunities to navigate.

CHAPTER FOUR

Today and Tomorrow

Again: “If you are not online, you are not making any money”

Yes, the coronavirus curves are plateauing

There are fewer hospital admissions and the daily death toll is still grim, but no longer rising. While this is encouraging news, it masks some significant concerns. The gains to date were achieved only by shutting down the countries, a situation that cannot continue indefinitely.

No one knows exactly what percentage of the people around the world have been infected. So far, estimates have ranged from three percent to tern percent. Until a vaccine or another protective measure emerges, there is no scenario, agreed upon, in which it will be safe for people to suddenly come out of hiding.

One thing is for sure:

If, in the near future, people are to pour back out in force, all will appear quiet for perhaps a few weeks and then, without any warning, all over the world, the emergency rooms will get busy again. The tighter the restrictions, the fewer the deaths and the longer the periods between lockdowns.

China did not allow Wuhan, Nanjing and other cities to reopen until intensive surveillance found zero new cases for fourteen straights days, the virus’s incubation period. At home, people can still take domestic flights, drive where they want, and roam streets and parks. Despite strict or mandatory restrictions, everyone seems to know someone discreetly arranging play dates for children, holding backyard barbecues or meeting people. Even with rigorous measures, Asian countries have had trouble keeping the virus under control. How can we be so arrogant?

If there is a lesson to be learned from China, it is that reopening nonessential businesses, lifting all distancing restrictions, requires a steady declining of cases for at least fourteen days, the tracing of ninety percent of all people that came in contact with a person affected by the Covid-19 virus, an end to all healthcare worker infections and at least the immediate instauration of recuperation places and facilities for mild cases. This is a strict minimum and for most of the location where the Covid-19 safety and prevention precautions have been relaxed, none of these pre-emptive steps have been followed. Get ready for second wave of the Coronavirus infection.

“If there is something that people need to realize, it is that is not safe to play poker with the Coronavirus; that the faucet needs to be reopen gradually”

Previously unthinkable societal changes have taken place already. Schools and business have closed, and millions of have applied for unemployment. Taxes and mortgage payments are delayed, and foreclosures forbidden. Stimulus checks, intended to offset the crisis, were issued. Food banks opened doors across the world, and huge lines have formed. Except for the upper class of the society, the world has become a welfare world.

A public health crisis of this magnitude requires international cooperation on a scale not seen in decades. Once the pandemic has passed, the economic recovery may or may not be swift depending on the way we are dealing with the pandemic today. The psychological fallout is harder to gauge. The isolation and poverty caused by a long shutdown may drive up rates of domestic abuse, depression and suicide.

In such a scenario, immunity to the virus will become both, a societal advantage and disadvantage. Imagine a population divided into two classes: those who have recovered from infection and presumably have some immunity to it; and those who are still vulnerable. It will be a frightening schism: Those with antibodies will be able to travel and work, and the rest that will be discriminated against.

As people stuck in lockdown will see their immune neighbors resuming their lives and even taking the jobs they lost, it is not hard to imagine the enormous temptation to join them through self-infection. Younger citizens in particular will calculate that risking a serious illness may still be better than impoverishment and isolation.

Even though limited human trials of three have already begun, any effort to make a vaccine will take at least a year to eighteen months. This is being very optimistic. Treatments are likely to arrive first. Meantime, for the next two years, I strongly suggest that you exert extreme caution. Avoid people that you know that may have been exposed to the virus. Avoid shaking hands and touching your face. Wash your hands. Keep safe distancing from everyone you meet and finally start doing business online.

Above everything else: Stay Safe!

The Birth of a Pandemic: Inside the first months of the coronavirus outbreak

JMD Systemics Advice and Guidance for Small Businesses

The Huanan seafood wholesale market in central Wuhan is that kind of place where people often caught colds.Vendors start setting up their displays as early as 03:00 a.m., cleaning and preparing produces for the customers that will soon be there early morning.

The sprawling market of more than twenty streets spanned two sides of a main road in an upscale neighbourhood of the commercial district of Hankou. Racks of meat are hung on hooks or dropped out on plastic mats. Workers walk around selling everything from live poultry to seafood and cooking ingredients. It is a crowded but clean market.

In mid-December 2019, when one of the workers felt unwell, he thought little of it. He stayed home to rest but after losing over ten pounds in just a few days, he decided to go to a general hospital for a basic check-up. From there, on December 19, he was sent and admitted in an hospital specializing in the treatment of infectious diseases.

This worker could not have known then that he was among the first cases of a new, highly contagious coronavirus that would soon kill more than 2,500 people in his city and engulf the world.

He thought he had a cold.

In early November and December 2019, the number of coronavirus infections began cropping up in Wuhan and, it is only in late January 2020 that the Chinese authorities informed the public that the virus could pass between humans.

Human-to-human transmission

By the end of December 2019, word had gotten out in Wuhan about a mystery illness.

On December 30, internet users circulated screenshots of a WeChat conversation, in which a doctor at Wuhan Red Cross hospital, warned his colleagues of confirmed cases of a contagious coronavirus at another hospital. “Wash your hands! Face masks! Gloves!” the doctor wrote.

That same day, on December 30, an ophthalmologist at Wuhan Central Hospital told a WeChat group that seven people at his hospital had contracted what he believed to be SARS, the outbreak that killed more than six hundred people in mainland China and Hong Kong in 2002-03.

Also on December 30 , an “urgent notice” from the Wuhan Health Commission warning of “successive cases of unknown pneumonia” was leaked and posted online. The statement ordered hospitals to “strengthen responsible leadership” and ensure that no one “disclose information to the public without authorisation.”

Under growing pressure, on December 31, the Wuhan Health Commission, in its first official notice about the virus, said that researchers were investigating twenty-seven cases of viral pneumonia.

There is “no obvious evidence of human-to-human transmission,” the statement said, describing the outbreak as linked to the seafood market and assuring the public that all patients had been quarantined and their contacts placed under observation. “The disease is preventable and controllable,” it added.

A day later, on January 1, the Huanan seafood market was closed and Wuhan’s Public Security bureau announced that eight people had been “punished” for spreading rumours.

Authorities also tasked hospitals to screen for pneumonia cases linked to the market and it wasn’t until January 20 that vendors in the market were asked to submit to temperature checks and blood tests.

Things are getting out of control

Across the Yangtze River, some 6 kilometres away, people who had never been to the market were falling sick and things went rapidly out of control. By the time officials revealed the infectiousness of the virus, hospitals in Wuhan were already overwhelmed and the numbers increased after the announcement.

On January 23, in Wuhan, a city of 11 million people was placed under lockdown.

Surrounding areas followed, putting a total of more than 50 million people under de-facto home quarantine and by February 19, in the death toll from the virus had passed 2,000.

The rest is history.

Today, while China and Wuhan are coming back to life, most countries of the world are fighting a global pandemic that may have easily been avoided. In the western word, people are dying by the hundreds of thousands and the Global Economy is crashing down.

Large corporations will most certainly survive but what about the small businesses? What about your own business?

The global dramatic economic slowdown is already disrupting trade flows and creating unemployment that will damage our society at levels that are hard to forecast and grim to contemplate. What does it means for you?

The reality is that we are now facing a Global Economic Recession. The Covid-19 pain will long persist after all social distancing measures and lockdowns end.

Undercapitalized businesses affected by the shutdowns now realize a grim reality: Recovery will not be that easy! In these difficult times, for the duration of the pandemic .

The Global Coronavirus Crisis Is Poised to Get Much, Much Worse

What happens when the pandemic strikes nations of millions of people?

In some places in Canada, the United States and other developed countries hit hard by Covid-19, the question is when might it become possible to start getting back to work. For much of the rest of the world, the nightmare is yet to start.

If the disease spreads in densely packed urban centers in fragile states, it may be virtually impossible to control. The dramatic economic slowdown already underway will disrupt trade flows and create unemployment that will do damage at levels that are hard to forecast and grim to contemplate.”

Covid-19 Economic Pain Will Persist Long After Lockdowns End

This will be a slow process

Many are predicting that economy will skyrocket once stay-at-home orders and other restrictions are lifted. But most economists say activity is likely to remain subdued amid worries about the virus.

“It’s just going to be a very long and slow recovery until such time as there is a therapeutic solution or a vaccine.”

Companies affected by the shutdowns say restarting the economy will not be that easy.

So do a wide variety of economic and survey data, which suggest that the economy will recover slowly even after the government begins to ease limits on public gatherings and allow certain shuttered restaurants and shops to reopen.

We Are Now Facing a World Global Economic Recession

Expect a “U-shaped” Recovery

Nearly all leading fund managers expect the world economy to contract this year. That is according to Bank of America’s monthly survey of investors, just released, which found that 93% investors expect a global recession in 2020. 52% of investors expect a “U-shaped” recovery from Covid-19, meaning a sharp slump, then a period of stagnation, before a recovery.

Not a surprise!

Some 22% expect a W-shaped recovery, while just 15% see a V-shaped bounce-back.
