SAN MATEO, CA, US, April 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE 1918 INFLUENZA – THE LAST GREAT PANDEMIC
By Colleen Adair Fliedner

On April 6, 1917, Woodrow Wilson declared war on Germany and its allies, collectively called the “Central Powers.” The president had flipped his anti-war promise on its proverbial head, facing the challenges of preparing the country for war like a bull charging a matador’s cape. Going to war had been a difficult decision, but Wilson was left no choice when Germany had become more aggressive towards the Unites States. Kaiser Wilhelm II had announced that all ships, including American passenger liners, would be sunk on sight. In addition, the British had intercepted a coded telegram sent by Germany’s Foreign Secretary to the German Ambassador in Mexico. The message proposed that Mexican troops invade the United States to start a war to reclaim New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. The Central Powers would supply weapons and money to support Mexican troops. That way, the U.S. military would be too busy fighting against Mexico to send troops overseas to join the Allied forces.

With only 127,151 men serving in the U. S. Army at that time, Wilson would have to implement the draft immediately. Make-shift training camps were set up, and steel mills and factories producing weapons would have to move at lightning speed. To keep up morale, Wilson’s representatives made sure that newspapers were censored so that nothing negative about the war was printed. People who spoke against the war were often brought to trial; some were even imprisoned.

In the military encampments, new recruits were squeezed into barracks and tents, their cots so close together that there was barely room to move between them. At Camp Funston on the massive grounds of Fort Riley, Kansas, an estimated 56,000 young men were being trained. Little did anyone know that a battle almost as terrible as the one they would face in the trenches abroad would soon come to call on the home front.

To this day, scientists battle about where or how the “Great Influenza Pandemic” began. One theory is that the virus infected pigs on a farm near Camp Funston. It all started, they said, two days after the farmer burned piles of hog manure. The wind carried a storm of smoke laden with the virus into the camp. Men began to sicken by the scores. Within three weeks, 1,100 had died. Other researchers stated that it was impossible for this kind of virus to survive burning, let alone to be infectious after being swept along for miles before finding a human host.

A more popular theory was that the killer influenza had been created by German scientists and brought to America on a submarine. The newspapers picked up on this idea and people believed the story. After all, the Germans had created deadly gases which killed thousands of soldiers in the trenches.

Yet another hypothesis was that the influenza outbreak during the winter of 1916-17 at a British encampment in France had symptoms eerily similar to the strange new strain of the killer flu. Some researchers believed that because of the weakened condition of the soldiers and the filth in the rat-infested trenches, the germs had mutated into an even stronger strain that was easily transmitted. The killer flu spread from stricken French soldiers in concentric circles to soldiers on both sides and into the cities. It hitched rides on unknowing hosts boarding ships bound for ports all over the world, eventually making its way to America…and possibly to the overcrowded military base in Kansas.

Ironically, the new flu was nicknamed “the Spanish influenza” even though it didn’t begin in Spain. Most likely, it reared its ugly head in France and Britain first and was likely carried to Spain by infected people spending time in Spain’s warm coastal resort towns. Because the war’s propaganda machine in the Allied countries had forbidden their newspapers from printing information about the outbreak of the flu and the toll it was taking on the troops, Spain, a neutral country with newspapers that included stories about the influenza outbreak in its country, was blamed for its beginnings.

The reality is that we may never know the influenza’s origin. The fact is that it moved through military bases in America and overseas like locusts ravaging a wheat field. Soldiers who had been exposed – and even those who were already showing symptoms – were deployed overseas. Shiploads of sick men arrived and spread the disease by the thousands. The strange virus preyed most often on the young and healthy. Symptoms began with headaches, violent coughing, body aches, sore throats and high fevers. Although some recovered, others weren’t so lucky. After a few days, their lips and even their faces turned blue when their lungs became congested with blood and fluids. Scientists worked madly to come up with a cure or, at least an inoculation. But in 1918 their microscopes weren’t advanced enough to view, let alone understand how to destroy, the viruses that were wreaking havoc on the world.

It’s ironic that the pandemic struck during a time when the world was at war. Military ships with soldiers carrying the flu stopped for fuel and supplies in ports all over the world. There are stories about sailors disembarking their ships in a port and infecting entire communities, such as in Western Samoa, where 8,000 people died after a vessel from Auckland docked there for refueling.

Meanwhile in America the flu continued to sweep across the country. People wore flimsy gauze masks hoping to protect themselves from the invisible enemy. Restaurants, churches and theaters closed, and people were advised to avoid crowds and stay home as much as possible. Mingling closely with other people was banned in many areas. For most Americans, however, that wasn’t an option. They had to work. Without them, who would build the much-needed military trucks and guns and cannons to ship to the troops? And of course, they caught and passed on the flu to their fellow workers.

One of the worst massive public exposures, a mistake that cost thousands of lives, occurred in Philadelphia when a Liberty Bond parade wasn’t canceled by the city’s leaders. An estimated three-hundred thousand residents lined the parade route and within three days, an estimated hundred thousand men, women and children became infected. Thousands of men, women and children – often entire families – died.

Overseas, the influenza sickened and killed thousands of soldiers on both sides. By fall, battle-weary Bulgaria, Austria, Hungry and Turkey had asked the Allies for peace. Germany would soon do the same, signing an armistice on November 11. The war was over, and the flu had more than a little credit for its somewhat quick end.
Although the flu continued its killing spree in second and third waves for months, the epidemic seemed to be over by the early winter of 1919. The public was ecstatic, patronizing their favorite eateries, partying, attending social functions, and shopping. Slowly, things returned to normal.

The total number of people who died from the 1918 influenza is believed to have been more than the those who died in World War 1. Because many of the countries affected by the virus didn’t keep accurate records, the numbers of dead are only estimates and range somewhere between 40 million and 100 million worldwide. Added to the 20-plus million soldiers and civilians who were killed in World War 1, the loss of life during this time is staggering.

For the scientists who couldn’t find a cure or what had caused this new variety of killer flu, their work continued. No one doubted that the day would come when another mutated disease would disrupt the world. It took over 100 years, but during the current outbreak of COVID 19, lessons learned from the 1918 flu were put into practice. Avoiding crowds, closing businesses, and asking people to stay home, helped then as it has helped now.

And the good news is that our ancestors’ lives did, indeed, return to normal. Strangely, the 1918 influenza hasn’t been included in history classes, and few books have been written on the topic. Until the recent pandemic, the “Spanish” flu had been forgotten by most people…with the exception of the generations of scientists who have worked to understand exactly what caused the deadly flu of 1918. Their hope has always been to prevent another similar outbreak.

And the battle to find a vaccine goes on….

Electroshock Death Prompts Watchdog to Call for Increased Mental Health Oversight

Electroshock Death Prompts Watchdog to Call for Increased Mental Health Oversight

Oversight of psychiatric facilities during COVID-19 is being reduced, putting patients at risk of treatment death, watchdog warns. CCHR says electroshock and other psychiatric treatments cause damage and tighter but safer controls need to be restored

Oversight of psychiatric facilities during COVID-19 is being reduced, putting patients at risk of treatment death, watchdog warns.

Oversight of potential abuse in behavioral or psychiatric facilities could be non-existent, putting patients at risk, not just from COVID-19, but also from psychiatric treatment administered to them.”

— CCHR International

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A patient at a for-profit group home in Hermantown, Minnesota died earlier this year after undergoing electroshock treatment (ECT). A state Department of Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) report noted the group home had failed to inform the patient’s guardian that the person “had been having seizures,” which was not something the person had previously experienced. ECT, the passage of up to 460 volts of electricity sent through the brain, causes a grand mal seizure and prolonged seizures. The guardian had expressed concerns to the State that the ECT treatments "were doing more harm than good for the (person).”[1] The mental health industry watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights International says the death shows the need to increase, not reduce oversight.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), prolonged seizures are a risk of ECT, as well as physical trauma and death.[2]

A coroner in one patient inquest said that that the seizure from ECT caused irreparable brain damage, leading to death.[3]

HHS instigated a maltreatment investigation, finding two staff members had failed to check on the person who was dead for hours. On February 21, 2020, the person was electroshocked at a specialized clinic and was told to expect to be groggy and sleepy. According to the Duluth News Tribune, following this, “the person went to bed and never left it, and was declared dead almost 24 hours later.”

The OIG found: “The (person) was largely unresponsive during most, if not every, check, and even when (staff) was shaking the (person’s) shoulder.” Further, “during the almost 24 hours that the (person) remained in his/her bed…never got up to use the bathroom, never spoke a word, never opened his/her eyes, and missed all of his/her meals and scheduled medications.” One staffer went their entire shift on the day of the person’s death without checking on the person, and documentation for safety checks was not filled out.

The facility was given a “correction order” but complying with this was waived due to the coronavirus pandemic.

CCHR says that while this is understandable, it means oversight of potential abuse in behavioral or psychiatric facilities generally could be non-existent, putting patients at risk, not just from COVID-19, but also from psychiatric treatment administered to them. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which sets and enforces essential quality and safety standards for the nation’s healthcare system, has suspended non-emergency inspections across the country, allowing inspectors to turn their focus on threats like infectious diseases and abuse.[4]

The OIG report does not cite a cause of death involving ECT nor does it determine “whether more thorough checks of the (person) would have prevented the (person's) death.”[5]

FDA also does not monitor or regulate the use of ECT. It says it cannot “completely eliminate risks” of ECT, only mitigate them.[6] In a 2011 FDA Expert advisory committee hearing into ECT, an FDA official told the panel that “mitigation does not mean elimination of the risk.”[7]

• Texas is the only state that reports a death within 14 days of ECT being administered. Based on the deaths recorded for 2013, 2015 and 2016, there was a 0.069% average death when applied to 100,000 Americans reported to undergo ECT every year, represents about 69 deaths every year.[8]

• A 2017 Scandinavian review of 15 studies with data from 32 countries reported 16 cases of ECT-related death yielding an ECT-related mortality rate of 2.1 per 100,000 treatments.[9]

• In 2016, a coroner in a death inquest in the UK said that that the seizure from ECT caused irreparable brain damage in an elderly woman. Her brain was completely starved of oxygen during the prolonged fit that the ECT she underwent produced.[10] According to a review of ECT studies published in Epidemiologia e Psichiatria Sociale in 2010, there’s an estimated death rate of 1 in 1,000 that for the general (non-elderly) patient population.[11] In another inquest, in Australia, a coroner determined that involuntary ECT did not prevent but may have led to a patient’s suicide.[12]

CCHR, a non-profit organization, has remained open during the pandemic, with staff working remotely to ensure patients in psychiatric facilities not being monitored, can report abuses. People can also help by signing the online petition to ban ECT.

CCHR is the mental health watchdog responsible for more than 180 laws that now protect patients from damaging practices. DONATE to support its work here: https://www.cchrint.org/cchrint-donate/

Briarwood Detox Center Enhances Client Safety With COVID-19 Testing and Online Drug Rehab

drug detox center in Austin, TX

The safest & most comfortable detox program in Austin, TX

Briarwood Detox Center offers diagnostic COVID-19 testing through a laboratory as well as online IOP to ensure the health and safety of all clients and staff.

AUSTIN, TX, USA, April 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Briarwood Detox Center has partnered with Clinical Pathology Laboratories to provide diagnostic COVID-19 testing, which will improve preventative measures onsite and slow the spread of the illness in the greater community. Tests will be available to clients and staff as deemed necessary, with results available in 24 to 48 hours.

Briarwood Detox Center has also rolled out a new online IOP program, offered through its sister companies, Eudaimonia Recovery Homes and Nova Recovery Center. The comprehensive online addiction treatment program provides ongoing treatment after detox via real-time video sessions. Licensed addiction treatment specialists facilitate the groups and clients can attend sessions several times a week from the comfort of their own homes or elsewhere.

Mat Gorman, Chief Executive Officer at Briarwood Detox Center, said, “By providing third-party COVID-19 testing and offering a new online treatment program, we are empowering clients to get the help they need safely and securely. The present circumstances are difficult, but should not keep people from receiving the care they need.”

The need for COVID-19 testing will be determined by Briarwood Detox Center staff on a case-by-case basis and appropriate actions will be taken to ensure the continued safety and well-being of all clients and staff members.

COVID-19 poses additional dangers for individuals who are recovering from addiction or facing substance abuse issues. If infected with the new coronavirus, drug abusers may face more severe health issues due to the negative effects of certain addictive substances. Other barriers such as a lack of health insurance coverage and reduced access to substance abuse treatment due to an overwhelmed health care system, may also greatly increase the risk of relapse or overdose.

Convenient and safe access to COVID-19 testing and addiction treatment services can help pave the way for sustainable and lasting recovery, despite the current pandemic.

About Briarwood Detox Center
Briarwood Detox Center provides medical drug and alcohol detox and stabilization programs in Austin and Houston. All detox programs are individually designed to cater to the needs of each client and multidisciplinary treatment reduces the risk of relapse and lays a solid groundwork for lasting recovery.

As the world is now facing a massive shift to remote-work, we invited one of the most established consulting expert to share her insights.

We have a lot of organizations that we see that just haven’t invested in what we think are adequate self-service options.”

— – Christa Heibel

“Everybody has been scrambling to set that up and get into that work at home mode. Clearly, those that already have gone into cloud technology and already had outside access set up for some element of work at home prior to this made that transition smoother than others.”
— Christa Heibel, CEO of CH Consulting Group about the remote-work business decision
