Several messages that all just flew into or out of my box:
Just now from a friend traveling in Netherlands,
“In last couple weeks I’ve stayed in two different nice hotels in the Netherlands. Haven’t had heat in either.”
I sent that message to a small group. To which an influential Dutch friend responded, “Yes energy prices are skyrocketing here. It is really unprecedented. Some of my friends have stopped heating their house. They spend evenings in blankets with candles. Others are talking about sabotaging the meter. My father has almost completely stopped visiting two entire floors of his house as he doesn’t want to heat them anymore.”
I responded to my Dutch friend, “Highly suggest Netherlands prepare for epidemic typhus in 2023. Typhus is an old disease we mostly have beaten back…I think typhus will make a return based on various factors. In studying for this likelihood, I just finished another book on typhus. In the old days typhus was called “War fever,” “famine fever,” “camp fever,” “Naval fever”, “hospital fever,” and “cooties.” (Cooties referring to lice and fleas spreading typhus — the cooties game is a result of teaching children to avoid typhus. Typhus spreads madly fast on close contact with carriers).
“Europe likely will have a return of typhus. This is an extremely serious disease. Easily treated…when medicines are flowing. But those likely will stop.
“Conditions are unfolding for pandemic.
Napoleon’s invasion of Russia was devastated by typhus. I just read another book on this Napoleon’s invasion of Russia due to the similar conditions I sense are unfolding. In 2023, Europe may lose millions from typhus and other old scourges such as relapsing fever and cholera.”
