In the United States, it isn’t health officials that are preparing for the possibility of the coronavirus outbreak becoming a pandemic. The military is preparing, and that should concern everyone.
Considering the coronavirus is a health concern, doctors and hospitals are the ones who should be getting ready for the possibility of a massive outbreak in the U.S. But that isn’t the case. U.S. Northern Command is executing plans to prepare for a potential pandemic of the novel coronavirus, now called COVID19, according to Navy and Marine Corps service-wide messages issued this week.
Chinese Doctors BEG For Face Masks Amid Coronavirus’ Continued Spread
When the Chinese government and those who serve it got involved, people were violently removed from their homes, and some cautioned that this may not stay isolated to China if the virus spreads to the U.S.
Department of Defense: The Military Has MASS Quarantine Camps Set Up In The U.S.
Is this just an excuse for more control over the public? Is this an excuse to use Martial Law? Who knows, but as some say: hope for the best, prepare for the worst. What you do with this information is up to you, but the U.S. military is making preparations for a pandemic.
The Navy and Marine Corps messages, issued Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, reference an executive order directing U.S. Northern Command to implement the Department of Defense Global Campaign plan for Pandemic Influenza and Infectious Diseases 3551-13.
The document serves as the Pentagon’s blueprint for planning and preparing for the widespread dispersion of influenza and previously unknown diseases.
U.S. Northern Command said Wednesday it was directed the Joint Staff Feb. 1 to commence “prudent planning” in their assigned role synchronizing the department’s plans for pandemic flu and disease. –Military Times
The planning does not indicate a greater likelihood of an event developing, says the military. As military professionals, planning for a range of contingencies is something we owe the American people,” Navy Lt. Cmdr. Mike Hatfield said. “We coordinate with other combatant commands to assess potential impacts in the event of a pandemic and we ensure the U.S. military is poised to respond as required,” Hatfield said in a statement. “The military profession fosters a culture of planning, and the fact that we are coordinating planning efforts across the geographical combatant commands is consistent with how we prepare to respond if directed.”
Combatant commands? The assumption should be that they’ll be fighting a virus…
If you think that what happened in China can’t happen here, Military Times says it without coming out and saying it:
According to the Marine Corps message MARADMIN 082/20, commanders are to review their disease containment plans and take “preparatory and precautionary actions” to protect service members, installations and ships.
This includes ensuring that the plans contain procedures for “response, isolation, quarantine, restriction of movement and community-based intervention” as well as developing measures to contain and treat those possibly exposed. –Military Times
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.” –Ronald Reagan
His words ring truer every day.
Prepping For The Coronavirus: Hand Washing Is Vital
Mac,,, you are fear mongering. In a worst case scenario we will all be thankful the military can assist in the provision of security and providing infrastructure. To compare the U.S. response to that of China is completely disingenuous. Please don’t be part of the problem.
Why would a bio lab researching a deadly virus be located in a metropolitan area instead of on a deserted island?
and not a swinging d*** at the press conference thought to ask…..uh Mr President have you given any thought to leading the charge in eliminating bio-weapon facilities on a global scale?
This is a link to how Hawaii deals with
an oppressive, and overbearing, gun grabbing government.
To the comment about bio labs in metropolitan areas.
You do realize that the US has numerous bio research labs in metropolitan areas, yes?
K-State has a level 4 bio research lab, as does university of Texas in Austin, another at Georgia University, etc.
There’s actually 13 level 4 labs in US designated as 4-BSL. These are all in areas that are in or near metropolitan areas. Although some larger than others. From smaller cities like Galveston or Manhattan to big ones like Boston.
Meanwhile, trump, bungles the effort to prepare.
Try ordering masks or hand sanitizer….
I’m in Dallas and every store is out of masks and hand sanitizer and it’s not even bad in US yet.
Trump refuses to federalize factories to make the things needed.
CDC has already locked down numerous warehouses that have supplies. As proof, order some sanitizer or masks on Amazon from a US supplier. You’ll get an email stating that the companies supplies have been “requisitioned” by CDC.
Chinese in US are buying up supplies to send home. That article was all over news February 28, as well as statements from CVS that there’s already shortages of both masks and sanitizer. They had an interview of a Chinese woman in California complaining about comments she was getting when she bought bulk to send home.
Freaking Chinese….say they love US but could care less about neighbors, friends, co-workers here.
On a different note I went to Academy and bought more ammo.
They will be deployed to implement the usual plans of tyranny for the _______ (fill in the blank) crisis. I suppose it’s a good time to snatch and grab political enemies (red listers).
The picture in the article isn’t accurate. When was the last time the U.S. military shined a boot?
STUNNING social media post: Every election year has an outbreak. Coincidence?
It’s an obvious globalist ploy, which they might have done for real over Trump this time. SEE THIS
Trolls are saying some of the dates don’t line up, but if you actually check to see when they are declared emergencies, they do.
