How to Fight the Rise of Pandemics Such As COVID-19 – 320ro
Covid-19 Virus is now a Pandemic estimated to kill tens of thousands of people worldwide. The World Health Organization seems to have only made this designation after the United States began to take the epidemic seriously. Even so, thousands of people in numerous countries around the world are testing positive for the virus while the global death toll has now risen to nearly 5000 people.
Now that politicians in the United States, the so-called leading country of medicine, are coming to their senses about the seriousness of the virus, they have begun shutting down all community celebrations, public schools, sports games, music events, and other social gatherings to thwart the spread of the virus. All Black people need to know how to fight the rise of global health pandemics such as Covid-19, the survival of our race in the new millennium depends on it.
This information is not meant to cause panic and hysteria as the HERU Interface of Black Consciousness strives to always be responsible to the collective awareness of humanity. Our main goal is to raise the awareness of Black people so that we will begin to dictate our own reality instead of being the supporting cast of other races as well as becoming victims of preventable diseases.
A Pandemic is described as an infectious and contagious health crisis that has spread to numerous countries and continents of the world. COVID-19 is a new type of Corona Virus, similar to the Flu but many times deadlier. It was first recognized by doctors in Wuhan, China roughly 6 months ago and since then it has been spreading fractally across the globe. The reasons for its rapid spread can be attributed to three things.
- Global complacency due to the fact that viral epidemics occur frequently in many regions of the world therefore countries outside of China were taking a wait and see approach. For instance, Chins was affected by several Flu epidemics in the past few years and they were able to manage them on their own.
- China is 1st world country that people from many nations travel in and out of frequently. For instance; when Ebola was killing thousands of Africans, it wasn’t considered a pandemic because the disease was isolated, mostly due to the fact that a lot of foreigners were not travelling in and out of the region and bringing it to their own countries
- Conservative political leaders, who now control many of the world’s most powerful nations, are supressing science because science clashes with their populist policies that are built on idealism. Those ideals include; religious self-righteousness, racial supremacy, and economic dominance. They believe that their god will protect them from the virus. They believe that they are the smartest race who can take on and overcome all military and medical threats. And they believe that science operates contrary to all 3 of their core beliefs, especially environmental concerns that are an hinderance to business.
The first thing Black people should understand about COVID-19 is that the virus has no cure. Vaccines are being developed but any effective treatment may still be at least a year away from approved clinical use. In the mean time, anyone affected with COVID-19 will just have to suffer through the symptoms, which are similar to a very nasty Flu. Most people who become infected by COVID-19 do eventually recover unless they have existing medical conditions that have already weakened their immune system. That is why 90% of COVID-19 deaths occur among the elderly.
Do not fall for the misconception that Black people cannot contract the COVID-19 virus. If you pay attention to the news you will see that COVID-19 is now present in many African, Caribbean, and South American countries. The reason why there is a low infection rate among Black people is because we weren’t living in or near the epicenter in Wuhan, China. Our infection rate will increase as we interact with other races but be conscientious and do not engage in the racism of white supremacists against Asians.
Do not fall for religious conspiracies that suggest that COVID-19 is a biblical plague as they did the Black Plague and other epidemics. All diseases can be explained and most are due to human ignorance. The Black plague that killed tens of millions of people in the 13th century was mainly due to poor hygiene practices. People back then were not aware of bacteria so they often did not bathe for months. When they did bathe, they did so in public pools of unclean water where bacteria from cuts and sores were unknowingly transferred between people.
Bacteria lives in symbiosis with us; many are essential to us and many are dangerous however, they were not discovered until the end of the 18th century. Before that doctors often operate on people using dead bodies for reference. They would use the same instruments to cut and explore a dead body as they did a living person while trying to find the source of an illness. Serious sicknesses were also thought to be the result of demons hiding inside people so they would cut and drain large amounts a patient’s blood to rid the demon. So, you see, relying on religious myths rather than medical science is quite senseless.
A virus is not a Bacteria but we became aware of them in similar ways. Unlike Bacteria, Viruses serve no benifit to us so our only option is to protect ourselves against them entering our body and doing harm. Understand that no religious belief can protect you from getting infected by COVID-19. Just pay attention to the leaders of all the major world religions. The Vatican, which is the center of Christianity has shut down all public services and the Pope and all the priests have gone into isolation. Mecca, which is the central hub of Islam has shut down. Jerusalem, which is the central hub of Judaism has also shut down and like Mecca, all religious pilgrimages have been banned. If the leaders of all these religions do not have enough FAITH to persevere through the threat of COVID-19 why do you believe that you can?
What should Black people learn about the COVID-19 and other Pandemics?
Black people should learn that COVID-19 is just one virus in a series of deadly illness that will infect and kill millions of humans in this new millennium. Some viruses will be naturally contracted from nature and some will be man-made as the unethical nature of some humans compel them to attack each other in devilish ways. The difference between natural and man-made epidemics will be vague due to our low level of awareness.
The best way to gain a deeper understanding of viral threats to your health is to become knowledgeable about life. Avoid conspiracies that comforts your fears but do nothing to protect you. For instance; if you believe that COVID-19 is a man-made biological weapon made by either the US or China, it may comfort you to know that and you might even try to tell other people that but your belief still wont protect you from contracting the virus.
If this might make life appear helpless and futile to you, have no fear. There is a way that you can fight the threat of COVID-19 and other epidemics and that is to attack the Conscience of people in power. Conscience is a safety-net that is designed by the Great Spirit that is the Universe to protect and balance the unethical propensities of human desire. Attack the conscience your political leaders so that they will begin to abandon their racial, religious, and economic superiority ideals and begin using Science for ethical purposes such as protecting and improving human health.
