Triumph Foods is one of out of dozens of meat packing plants and food processing facilities that have reported multiple cases of coronavirus RNA detection. CNN refers to these as “outbreaks” - calling for more surveillance and isolation of symptom-less people and their contacts. These “outbreaks” of asymptomatic detection are prompting food processing plants to close around the country. Because of the closures, the increasing amount of isolated workers, and the lucrative unemployment packages that keep workers at home, the food supply is at risk in America and around the world.
Governments to employ large armies of "contact tracers" as the food supply and human freedom are threatened
The United States is testing more people for coronavirus RNA than any other Nation. Strange enough, people with actual symptoms of an infection are regularly testing negative for coronavirus RNA. On average, ninety percent or more of people with respiratory symptoms are testing positive - not for COVID-19 - but for other respiratory viruses, that for some reason, are not of concern.
What the public health agencies are currently concerned about is calculating and tracking the number of symptom-less healthy people who contain traces of coronavirus RNA in their nose. These “asymptomatic” cases are now being documented as "outbreaks" at prisons and at food processing plants, leading to plant closures and early inmate releases.
In the quest to control the virus and eradicate its presence from the Earth, governments have decided to release prisoners onto the streets, while tracing, tracking, and isolating anyone who has no symptoms, who may have come into contact with someone who also has no symptoms of illness. This tracking effort includes employing hundreds of thousands of “contact tracers” across the United States. These contact tracers are beginning to interview people who test positive so they can track down all their contacts over a fourteen day period.
Dr. Randall Williams, director of Missouri's Department of Health and Senior Services, told CNN, “We continue to work this weekend contacting these asymptomatic patients and have initiated the process of contact tracing with those determined to be close contacts of our positive cases.” DHSS is urging anyone who has been in contact with an asymptomatic positive case to submit to their doctor for testing.
Contact tracers retrieve geolocation data from a target’s phone so they can better track down the people they came into contact with. Contact tracers then locate and confront these contacts at their place of business, work or home. These people are then told to take a swab and diagnostic test and to isolate for fourteen days.
In some states, governments are announcing plans for people to leave their homes and their families, so they can be relocated to a new quarantine location. This plan, to be employed in states like California, New York, and Illinois is based off the World Health Organization’s recommendation to come into homes and remove people who could have been exposed to the virus.
On March 30, Dr. Michael Ryan, Executive Director at the WHO Health Emergencies Programme, said, "In most parts of the world, due to lock down, most of the transmission that's actually happening in many countries now is happening in the household, at family level. In some senses, transmission has been taken off the streets and pushed back into family units, now we need to go and look in families and find those people who may be sick and remove them, and isolate them, in a safe and dignified manner".
Is tracking and isolating people and shutting down the economy over "asymptomatic" cases really worth it?
Are asymptomatic cases really as dangerous as they are made out to be? Why are governments so concerned about tracking people down, while little is done to assist the immune systems of the most vulnerable? Moreover, what percent of these cases are false positives? Are these "abundance of caution" safety measures, tracking efforts, and plant-wide shutdowns worth it, when the food supply, the U.S. economy, and human dignity hangs in the balance? Which is worse for the food companies - being sued for not removing asymptomatic workers or contributing to the food shortages?
Do private companies have the right to treat workers and customers as medical slaves who must be swabbed and tested every day, tracked, controlled, monitored, privacy trampled, and mandated to submit to bodily requirements? Do individual rights matter anymore?
