15 Days to Slow the Spread

Watch on YouTube

Unless you are living in an underground bunker, minus all contact with the outside world, you know something about the coronavirus pandemic. The President and his task force, headed by Vice President Pence, have been updating the country daily on the situation.

The focus now is to contain it as much as possible by self-quarantine at least for the next 15 days—staying out of situations where you are with other people. The virus is now present in every US state, with 5,600 people infected and 100 deaths. The numbers are increasing exponentially because the incubation period is up to 14 days, and many aren’t aware they are infected. 

If a massive number of people become seriously ill with coronavirus all at the same time, the healthcare system will become overwhelmed—not enough caregivers, equipment, or hospital space. Italy’s system is completely flooded, with nearly 70,000 cases. Medical personnel are now withholding treatment from people over 60.

We don’t want that to happen here.

Here’s What You Should Know: 

  • The virus broke out in Wuhan, China, but the epicenter of the outbreak is now in Europe
  • Leaders of multiple large-density areas are in shut-down
  • San Francisco’s mayor was the latest to impose a complete shut-down except for essential services, asking people to shelter-in-place and restrict their activities outside the home to walking dogs and purchasing food until April 7th

Here’s What is Being Done: 

President Trump has been restricting entry to the US by foreigners since January 31, when he banned aliens from China. February 29 he added Iran, on March 11 the Schengen Area of Europe (26 nations), and two days later, UK and Ireland. He may also shut down travel between states in the US.

  • Trials are underway to develop a vaccine
  • Telehealth has been expanded to help Medicare patients, who can now use it no matter where they live—not just in rural areas. 
  • Medicaid wavers may be used as a result of the emergency declaration.
  • Test kits are available through public health departments and local doctors
  • Walmart has agreed to set up drive-through testing in their parking lots
  • Google is developing a coronavirus website, which should be ready later this week

Congress and the President are considering different types of financial packages to help small businesses and people affected by the various shut-downs.The House passed a bill last week which the Senate is now considering; it may include sending a $1,000 check to everyone over the age of 21, including illegals and DACA migrants.

The President has already released $8.3 billion emergency funding to fight the virus, and his administration is asking the Senate to release $850 billion for payroll tax cuts and aid for hard-hit industries. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin is expected to meet with Senate Republicans, who hold a majority, to discuss other provisions such as $250 billion in loans to small businesses through the Small Business Administration.

Independence from China

President Trump has long recognized the danger of dependence on foreign countries, part of the globalists’ agenda. Consider the following: 

  • 70 percent of the ingredients used in advanced pharmaceuticals comes from abroad. Much of that supply chain is based in China.
  • Federal agencies like Veterans Affairs, Health and Human Services and Defense are heavy consumers of such products.

As a remedy, Peter Navarro, Assistant to the President, and Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, says U.S. firms are being asked to consider relocating medical supply chains from overseas to the U.S. White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow told reporters that one policy idea under consideration is a 100 percent immediate tax write-off of expenses like structures, equipment, R&D and intellectual property—which would be equal to the costs of relocation.

China is now trying to back track on the virus, saying it was the US military who infected their nation. They are being aided and abetted by the US mainstream media who continue to call anyone who connects the virus with China, xenophobic or racist.

The state-run Chinese media, also warned that they would deny the US access to life-saving drugs, saying China could impose export controls on pharmaceuticals–which would plunge America into “the mighty seas of coronavirus.”

Why this Matters: The President said of the pandemic in a press conference, “Some of the doctors say it will wash through, it will flow through” by July or August. 

President Trump and the task force are allowing individual states to decide how much to restrict their citizens. Democrat governors, including Gavin Newsome (CA) and Andrew Cuomo (NY) have praised the President for his handling of the pandemic. 

  • “His team is on it. They have been responsive late at night, early in the morning. And thus far, they have been doing everything that they can do, and I want to say thank you, and I want to say that I appreciate it.” –Gov. Andrew Cuomo

The stock market experienced its second worst day in history on Monday. The President spoke to the press on Tuesday, saying he believes the economy is ready to explode upwards, once we are past this epidemic. He is also concerned that if not handled correctly, reaction to the virus could cause a recession.

The coronavirus task force believes that if we can get through the next 15 days containing the outbreak, we will see the number of cases fall instead of rise. Much depends on people following the guidelines to self-quarantine.

How to Pray: Together, we are a mighty army for the Lord! He hears our prayers and longs to answer them. Pray for those who have the disease that they will quickly recover. Pray that all people will take this time to consider their fate in eternity. Pray for the President and the task force to continue being led in wisdom and discernment. Pray for President Trump–his safety, health, and meekness. He was appointed by God for such a time as this.

Is. 45:1-2 – Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
