Because, uh, we don’t see monkeypox as a threat, like how we didn’t see MERS-CoV as one either! And this government agency, like ALL of the DDP, still operates on, HINDSIGHT and screwed are, WE the people! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
At the start of May, monkeypox had started spreading outside of the tradition areas of the pandemic, and there’s the community spreading cases, and it’d caused the attention of the global community. So, is monkeypox worth our worrying over? What are the misunderstanding, and the traps? What should we be prepared on?
Although, there’s only just one fatality to date, but, there were the children who’d been placed in the I.C.U. after contraction. Children, pregnant women, and those with a weaker immunity are the at-risk groups. Other than the skin problems that may cause the aches and pains, the dehydration, the loss of proteins, and the reinfections, it can also damage the eye sight, or cause pneumonia, inability to breathe, hepatitis, and encephalitis, etc., etc., etc. Once there is an increase in the number of cases, the families, the medical professionals, as well as everybody else in the society will be impacted with the risks of contraction.
The problem with monkeypox is that there’s a long incubation period, that it’s not spread widely enough, and it couldn’t be like MERS-CoV, initiating the border controls, to block the disease out of the country, but, in the means of animals and humans transmission, it can easily transmit from the wildlife or the pets to human, as monkeypox makes its way into the local communities, it would be impossible to eliminate, and thus it will become, regional, and exist long-term.
And once it started spreading, it would cause a second damage to the communities, the medical care systems, for example, the workers in the medical industries, the janitorial workers will be faced with a new threat of occupational hazards, and the laundromat may also be impacted as well.
In the means of prevention, there’s a need to rely on both the public health services as well as the medical treatment facilities. Setting up a system of reporting is the most basic of prevention, but, with only the definitions of the disease, and ordering the medical treatment facilities to report on the cases is not enough, we need to heighten the alerts of the locals, as well as the doctors in all medical treatment units, to send in the tests, to diagnose early, to quarantine as needed, to limit the spread, and through the detailed reports, to stop the spread, to prevent the virus to root in the local communities.
On the means of prevention, there’s the need of vaccinating all who are in the social circles of the individual who’d contracted the virus, to cut off the chain of spread. W.H.O. advised those who came into contact, to get vaccinated within four days of contact, but no more than fourteen days, before the symptoms set in, through the immediate vaccinations, to prevent the onset, and the spread.
As for the high risk individuals, such as the professionals in medical care, the lab workers, the operators of the labs, even gay males, can receive the vaccines prior to exposures.
Theoretically, chickenpox vaccines can prevent monkeypox, but, the second, third generations of safer vaccines should be used. In treatment, due to the limited research of efficacy of the medications, W.H.O. advises that only the severely symptomatic, and those who are at higher risk is given.
As what most of us had learned from MERS-CoV: the outbreaks are really sly; it would cause the multiple impacts on the medical care provision systems, the societies; to deal with the outbreaks, the easiest means is through stopping the spread before it began on a community level; we need to get the three tools (the vaccines, the test kits, the medicines) we need to prevent the monkeypox from becoming a pandemic like MERS-CoV.
Although, monkeypox isn’t as quickly to spread out like MERS-CoV, there’s no need to get everybody vaccinated, we still need to prevent the virus from rooting down, and the key to this, is the vaccines. As the monkeypox started spreading globally for over a month to date, as the virus is already at our gates, the government is still talking of “we will have the vaccines by the end of the year!”, and clearly, for the six months following now, we can’t even start preparing for the preventions of exposures, or the treatment after we are exposed. And, the constant missing out on the timelines, it’d put the country’s people, the medical professionals at war, without our, needed, ammunitions, when will the CDC learn?
The answer is: NEVER! Because the head of the CDC, Chen is already CHECKED out, with his sight set on the end-of-year mayoral elections, leaving we the people, without a single clue, and, the CDC app, can’t even answer what monkeypox is, because the systems isn’t updated yet, yeah, that’s, stupid all right, and, we are still, all FUCKED up, by the DDP, because everybody in the government is from the party, and, from the MERS-CoV cases, we can see, just how incompetent, this DDP government truly is, and, we the people are all going to D-I-E!
Long-Term Care Became an Abandoned Infant, and the Justice Systems Can’t Patch up the Holes
How the HEAD (OFF with HIS HEAD!) of the DDP is already checked out as the head of DDP, with his sight on the mayoral election of the city of Taipei at the end of the year, and the policies for long-term care still isn’t set up from the start, and it’d been ten fucking (so???) years since the “birth” of the long-term care policies here! Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
Every time I saw the verdict of the cases o murder in the families with long-term care needs, it’d pained me, since the start of Long-Term Care 2.0, the tragedies in the families hadn’t stopped yet. Although the UDN papers did a special report on “Murders of Long-Term Care”, and yet, seeing how the Department of Sanitation & Welfare boasting on the coverage rate of over fifty-percent of Long-Term Care 2.0, for the past two years, the head of CDC, Chen hadn’t shown ANY concerns for this area, only cared about the pandemic, and now, he’d, shifted his focus onto the mayoral elections at the end of year. The DDP government should evaluate the lacking of Long-Term Care 2.0, to NOT give up the right to set up the rules correctly, to allow the justice systems to patch up those holes.
The sixty-nine-year-old man didn’t want to see his wife suffer anymore, for being bedridden for a whole of thirty years, suffocated her with a plastic bag, and the defense argued that it was a “mercy killing”, the district attorney asked the courts for mercy, the Taipei District Court believed that the case fitted to the requirements of a sentence reduction, sentenced Tsai to two years six months, and this can still be appealed. The seventy-nine-year-old elderly man took care of his daughter with cerebral palsy for close to fifty years, smothered her to death with a quilt, and his life saved by emergency resuscitation from his suicide attempt after killing his daughter, the Taipei District Court sentenced him to two years six months, and, the courts asked the president to issue a special pardon for him, which was quite rare.
If the government stepped in to help out, then, maybe, these tragedies from the burdens of long-term care could’ve been, avoided. And yet, the setting up of the policies are to the legislature, while the right of justice is left to the courts, whether it be “mercy killings”, or the judges reviewed over the deeds, and gave a reduced sentence, then asked the president for a special pardon, it still doesn’t STOP the cases of long-term care from recurring, only through the evaluations of the department of Sanitation & Welfare, learning from the judiciary’s empathy in evaluating the lacking of Long-Term Care 2.0, then, maybe, we can reduce the cases of tragic deaths that came out of Long-Term Care 2.0.
Long-Term Care 2.0 is one of the major promises that Tsai made from her election in 2016, and the budgeting of the programs started back in 2017, and the total amount had accumulated to over thousands of millions of dollars to date; there’s the budget of close to sixty billion dollars N.T. in long-term care uses, a new high in history, and this is still not including the “basic structure designs projects’” money set aside to put into long-term care. Problem is, the money can’t solve the problem of the pressures from the caretaking, that it needed the effective policies, and the implementations of the policies to work.
Tsai is half way through her second term, there are still two more years left, if she can evaluate the lacking of the past six years’ worth of long-term care lacking, rethink the people’s needs for the services, and stop boasting about the pretty statistics and numbers, change the provisions of as-needed services, and set up a fuller and more complete long-term care system, teaching the people how to get the resource when they need, how to set up a properly functioning system of long-term care provisions.
The definition of long-term care isn’t on the temporary, emergent medical treatment means, the tragedies are mostly from the long-term accumulations of the pressures of caretaking that’s lasted for decades at a time, the government should return back to the basic services provided to the families on these needs, helping the families set up a system that will work, and provide the quality and quantity of care that the people are in need of.
The Department of Sanitations & Welfare is in charge of the legislatures of the long-term policies, and should be full of empathy, with the leadership skills, the ability for planning, with the head of department being able and capable to implement the policies, but, from the past years’ worth of pandemic, although there’s the appearances of the elegant “getting ahead”, but on the means of defense against the spread of MERS-CoV, the planning of the vaccinations, the availabilities of the quick scan kits, the hikes of contractions in the nursing homes, there are still, too many holes, and yet, the head of department, Chen now shifted his focus to running in the mayoral race of the city of Taipei, and long-term care is once again, abandoned.
I hope, that the DDP isn’t solely zoomed in on the 2022 election of the mayors of the various cities in the country, but need to set their sights farther to the 2024 presidential elections, and, by then, the efficacy of the DDP ruling over this country may well be decided on the total numbers of deaths of the long-term care tragedies. You need to know, that the justice system will NEVER be able to patch up the holes in the system of long-term care.
And so, this is still due to how this DDP government lacked the foresight, and because the system isn’t set up correctly, that’s why, so many are being MURDERED by their caretakers, and it’s still a top down problem, because the heads of these separate units already checked out, like for Chen, he only cared about the mayoral election at the end of the year, and he let his post of head of CDC slide, leaving we the people, defenseless against the viruses of MERS-CoV, and now, monkeypox too, and that’s still because of how the DDP is corrupt, from the top down, and rotten to the CORES already!
