Just scam company after scan company. I will get her out next year. Thank you so much for saying those 3 world. "The Chinese narrative" I backtrack. You said that the Chinese virus recovery was fast. -_- Seriously? They are locking down whole cities because of "0 new cases" "Quick Building hospitals with capacity of tens of thousands" Not really a hospital, just location with limited medical equipments. For 12 official cases. It does not take a genius to figure out that they are lying Why did you close down the city and lock everybody up? 0 cases. Why did you create hospital facilities for 30000 people? 12 people are sick. It is crazy that anybody would believe this.

    Saying that A380s won't return in 2023 when demand will be the same as it was in 2019 is stupid. The A380s were flying since 2010 for Qantas. Once things begin to pick up there's nothing to say they won't return within 12 months! There so so much rumor and stupidity right now, we can't predict what is going to happen so how about instead of spreading rumors we just let things take it's course. Otherwise the video was very interesting

      @Harpoon McFierce you could say that. Especially considering they constantly lied about the coronavirus and knowingly allowed it to spread across Europe and the rest of the world. And that’s aside from the fact that they killed tens of millions of their own citizens through the Great Leap Forward, their one child policy, and running actual concentration camps for Uyghurs right now. The Chinese Communist Party needs to be held responsible for all of the death and economic destruction this pandemic has caused. In short, the Communist Party should be totally annihilated.

    Your conclusion seemed to suggest strict health measures, while at the same time pointed out the continued successes of Cabo and Cancún (prime examples of prioritizing the economy). In any case, it's never an either or - without the economy, people will not be healthy. They will die. COVID might kill 2% of the patients, but starvation kills 100%.

    There is a certain percentage of aviation fuel in a barrel of crude oil that must be consumed, or storage will fall short, or cracking that kerosene to gasoline would be costly beyond the market price of the kerosene. This might be one of the hidden reasons behind a minimum choreography of the aviation industry, that this video has avoided to mention: Energy! Therefore, to have gasoline and diesel coming for land and sea transportation, aviation must be around, too. Interdependency between fuel types is a devil, indeed. Wail.

      @Zhi Han Lee The H1N1 flu might technically be a pandemic, but you cant really put it in the same class as a disease we had never seen before up to that point, like COVID. Also, MERS was a relatively small outbreak of a coronavirus that didn't spread too fast, and was contained fairly easily. That falls under the category of an epidemic.

    Easy way to get people flying again = have individual clear plastic head helmets (sort of like space-suit helmets) that each person wears, and it has fresh air pumped into it from the outside (via a small tube that comes down from the ceiling of the cabin) so that there is no risk of breathing in someone else's breath that might contain virus particles. This would work on short flights where there is no need to use the bathroom or to eat any dinner.

It certainly shows how the virus has impacted aviation, forcing them to bring future retirements forward drastically

    I would take the CCP's "miraculous" COVID recovery numbers with a huge grain of salt. It's more likely that China has tried to suppress the real numbers and try to continue as though nothing is wrong. They need to do this b/c they have a huge cash flow problem right now with investors being wary of their markets. Let's also be honest, the CCP could care less for the safety of their constituents and more for their bottom line while their undesirables suffer.

    1. Vqlcano

      First of all, any flu is an endemic. The difference is that the flu is a disease we understand way better than a virus we haven't seen before. An endemic is any disease that keeps comin back, usually in new strains every year, or any other baseline period of time. Just because a certain year's flu is worse than another year's flu, it doesn't make it a pandemic. As for the spanish flu in 1918, it was technically not a pandemic, but shared many similarities to one, including lack of understanding, and extreme severity and unusualness in that is disproportionately affected young, healthy people as a pose to other strains of flu which mostly affect the weak.

      Yes. Everything else so far that seems to have been a pandemic wasn't. They were all either epidemics or endemics. The difference is that epidemics are usually regional outbreaks of a disease that were easily curbed, such as Ebola or SARS. An endemic is a disease that keeps coming back, usually in a new strain, after a certain baseline period of time, like the flu, or in this case the Swine Flu outbreak in 2009-2010.
