    REPLAY VIDEO: Coronavirus Q&A Webinar #2

    Watch Chris & Adam field *more* questions from PP subscribers

    Here’s the replay video of Friday’s “Ask Anything” Coronavirus Q&A webinar #2.

    Why is this restricted to Peak Prosperity’s premium subscribers? Two main reasons:

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

    And Two — one of the many benefits of premium membership is closer access to the experts on this site.

    If you’re not yet a premium member but would like becoming one and watch the webinar, click here to subscribe.

    And if you choose not to enroll, that’s completely fine. We’ll still continue producing our free daily videos/etc for as long as the outbreak remains fluid.

    cheers,

    Adam & Chris

    Given the very positive feedback we received from Saturday’s webinar, Chris and I will be holding another 1-hour live “ask anything” Q&A webinar tomorrow, Friday, Feb 21 at noonET/9amPT.

    One — we expect a number of our answers to be our ‘best guesses’ given the incomplete data available. We don’t feel it appropriate to put that kind of speculation out into the public domain.

    Why I’m Ramping Up My Coronavirus Preparations

    The more I learn about the virus, the more I don't want to get it

    In yesterday’s video (Coronavirus Infections Outside Of China Are Growing Exponentially) from Feb 19th, 2020, I put out the science behind why a second exposure may be worse than the first. That’s anything but proven at this point, but the fact that both SARS and MERS are that way, and given the high degree of sequence homology between both of those and COVID-19 we’re just going to have to guess that a second exposure to COVID-19 is worth avoiding.

    So much so that I’ve made the personal decision that I’m not going to get it the first time around. Mostly to avoid being at risk of getting it a second time.

    That’s a calculation based on the currently available data, which, admittedly, involves making a number of assumptions and a couple of educated leaps.

    I’m uncomfortable speculating in public because I’d be crucified by those protecting the official narrative.

    Here’s my primary personal strategy when it comes to the coronavirus (aka covid-19): Don’t get infected!

    Not until a truly effective vaccine is ready and I’ve gotten it. That’s going to be up to 18 months from now, possibly longer.

    This means I have to be ready to self-distance from other people for that entire time. It means I have to be mentally and financially ready to isolate at home for a very long time, if necessary. For much longer than I was actually prepared for when all this erupted last month.

    So, over the past few weeks I have taken the following steps… (Enroll now to continue reading)

    Coronavirus Pandemic: The Next Two Weeks Are Critical

    Will infections ex-China remain muted, or explode higher? We'll soon find out.

    While China remains largely in lockdown, covid-19 cases in the rest of the world are at a key juncture.

    To-date, confirmed cases have been lower than feared. Though increasingly, we’re suspecting that’s due to inadequate testing & reporting.

    And the cases we *do* know of (now at ~1,000) appear to be growing at an exponential rate. So the next two weeks will be critical in telling the tale.We’ll soon know whether the spread is indeed slower than initially feared, or we’ll start to see huge increases in the number of infected ex-China.

    Coronavirus: The Calm Before The Storm?

    Is the puzzling silence from officials presaging a turn for the worse?

    Good updates on the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic (aka covid-19) are becoming harder to obtain as governments tighten their grip on news sources.

    The data being shared, particularly by the Chinese are increasingly hard to believe, as they don’t match the massive response the government is undertaking.

    Likewise, outside of China, reported cases remain lower than we would expect given the powerful R0 (i.e., infectiousness) of the virus, as well as its long asymptomatic incubation period.

    Are we being intentionally kept in the dark?
