Mainly, preventing contact is the best way to stop it.. but, they couldn't achieve that back then.
Is it really possible? Won't it continue to linger for years, no matter how much contact is prevented?
I believe it "disappeared" because the people who had it got over it, or possibly never got it to begin with. And the rest died.. so those vulnerable died, and there weren't many left to get it and spread it.
If it's prevented by contact limiting, there will always remain many people who are not immune, ready to grab it within days of the city opening up again if somebody still has it, and brings it?
Unless, many of us have it already and are becoming immune to it as this happens, without ever knowing it. That could explain what Arthur's book says, they could not infect healthy people with the Spanish flu. I believe they could've been already immune.
With the travel happening these days, I don't know how we can ever wait until the virus dies out.. this quarantine and no close contact could go on for a very long time if this is the solution.
The next time they allow a big public gathering, what's to prevent it from coming back, if it hasn't run it's course.. vaccines possibly? Denmark passed a mandatory vaccine law already.
They only test people with symptoms.. so we have no idea how many have it without symptoms.
the lockdowns can not go on for long because then more people would die of starvation.
the idea is probably to limit the damage and the hope is that the summer will slow the infection rate.
and there may be an agenda to grab more power, steal private property and /or vaccinate everybody with the devil knows what.
"They only test people with symptoms.. so we have no idea how many have it without symptoms. "
yes, and only some of those with symptoms.
on the other hand, a lot of not yet "recovered" or not yet discovered infected people are still going to die from the wuflu.
let's say finally, to remain a bit within the framework of this forum, that vaccination may cause more electrical sensitivity or dumbify people to the extend that they notice less of the effects of emfs even while the damage is getting worse ( with thanks to elon musk and other technophile psychopaths ).
Slightly off-topic, but if you read the contemporaneous accounts written in 1919/1920, the homeopaths had excellent results treating about 20,000 flu patients with a mortality rate of about 1 percent (as opposed to the ~30% reported for normal allopathics, though to be fair the allopathics introduced a lot of unneeded death by administering aspirin, which hastened bacterial pneumonia). Besides the gentle remedies used, there was high attention paid to individual treatments (not one size fits all, such as drugs), and employing hot/cold water compresses, lots of air and sunshine, lots of bedrest and so other rather basic nursing.
It seems to me that our best individual defense is to have the very best immune system we can manage. In addition to very good food (not processed, not GMO, etc), removing environmental toxins from our spaces (such as cleaning product, fragranced products, formaldehydes from carpets & glues, molds, lead in water, plastics, teflon and a host of others), we need to avoid electrosmog. Here we have an Electrosenstive house member who is also immunocompromised and is also an expert muscle-tester. One of our major defenses for the immune system has been to keep off the bedroom electrical circuits pretty much 24 hours of the day have no wifi/cell/cordless devices (verified with Safe&Sound Pro II), running chromebooks from battery and using shielded ethernet cable. [We also have some immune boosting strategies involving homeopathic remedy, hot magnesium baths, spectro-chrome light therapy, *lots* of bedrest and traditional nutriceuticals. but that seems beyond the scope of this forum].
The bleeding during the spanish flu was due to the inability of blood clotting, very consistent with radio wave sickness. The US put up so many huge, and inefficient radio transmitters at the end of the war for the Navy. By the way, Spanish flu originated in the US, first among the Navy training centres.
Deliberate attempt to study how contagion worked failed.
Enormous amount of people died.
