    The Telegraph ^ | 9 August 2020 | Anna Mikhailova
    A review will examine reports that officials were "over-exaggerating” the number of deaths from coronavirus. The official Covid-19 daily death toll may never be brought back following an investigation into Public Health England's method of counting it, the Telegraph understands. The conclusions of the review, which was ordered by Matt Hancock after it emerged officials were "over-exaggerating” deaths from the virus, are expected this week. One expected recommendation would be to stop daily reporting altogether and move to a weekly official death toll instead ... a significant proportion of the daily out-of-hospital death toll relates to patients who recovered from...
  • Preliminary Injunction Sought to Release Hydroxychloroquine to the Public

    08/03/2020 2:30:55 PM PDT · by JeepersFreepers · 42 replies
    Today the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons filed its motion for a preliminary injunction to compel release to the public of hydroxychloroquine by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), in AAPS v. HHS, No. 1:20-cv-00493-RJJ-SJB (W.D. Mich.). Nearly 100 million doses of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) were donated to these agencies, and yet they have not released virtually any of it to the public. Millions of Americans fear attending political gatherings, religious services, and even large family get-togethers without the availability of early treatment if they were to contract COVID-19. Why should...

    Hospitals will begin sending coronavirus-related information directly to the Department of Health and Human Services, not the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), under new instructions from the Trump administration. The move will take effect on Wednesday, according to a new guidance and FAQ document for hospitals and clinical labs quietly posted on the HHS website. Previously, hospitals reported to the CDC's National Healthcare Safety Network, which the agency describes as the nation’s most widely used healthcare-associated infection tracking system. CDC tracked information including how many beds are available, number of ventilators available and how many COVID-19 patients the...

    Doctors can still prescribe anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine to patients, US Health Secretary Alex Azar said, hours after the FDA withdrew the emergency use authorisation of chloroquine and HCQ in the treatment of COVID 19 patients. The US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) decision came on Monday after it concluded that the anti-malarial drugs may not be effective to cure the virus infections and lead to greater risks than any potential benefits. "At this point, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and chloroquine are just like any other approved drug in the United States. They may be used in hospital, they may be used in...

    PJ Media ^ | 06/13/2020 | Rick Moran
    The Department of Health and Human Services has finalized a rule that repeals Obamacare policy relating to access to abortion and gender identity. The new rule will define “sex discrimination” in terms of a person’s biological sex, rather than gender. The Obamacare rule defined “sex discrimination” as including discrimination regarding gender identity, which the rule defined as “one’s internal sense of gender, which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female.” Anyone who requires a list to define their gender needs help — badly.Under the new policy, hospitals can decline to perform “gender transition surgery” as...

    Former Trump campaign adviser and new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) spokesman Michael Caputo blasted whistleblower Rick Bright Thursday, claiming he is disgruntled over his "profile" during the coronavirus pandemic. "I come to work here in Washington 24/7, like everybody else does," Caputo told "The Ingraham Angle." "There are 84,000 people at HHS who are working every day and Dr. Bright, who makes $285,000 a year, can't find his way to work. "To me, that's just -- I mean, for everybody back in my hometown who are locked down, who are losing their businesses, who aren't able to...

    Conventional wisdom fueled by the media is that the White House ignored the coronavirus threat in January and February. It is absolutely false.There are times in the life of a body politic when conventional wisdom grows out of falsehoods. The danger of such a situation is that once it takes hold few people will actually look beyond the deception to discover the truth. We are living through just such a moment as much of our news media perpetrates a lie that the Trump administration was doing nothing to combat the novel coronavirus during January and February.Last week, The Federalist obtained...

    A conservative watchdog group filed a lawsuit seeking communications between Dr. Anthony Fauci and the World Health Organization in an effort to uncover if China and the WHO could have done more to prevent the coronavirus pandemic. Judicial Watch announced Monday it filed the lawsuit on behalf of the Daily Caller News Foundation against the Department of Health and Human Services. The news organization had requested communications between Dr. Fauci, who heads the National Institute of Allergies and Infections Disease, and his Deputy Director H. Clifford Lane with WHO officials about COVID-19 and about China, where the new coronavirus originated....

    An interview obtained by The Federalist reveals how the Wall Street Journal badly misled Americans about HHS Secretary Alex Azar's response to the coronavirus outbreak. Reporters get things wrong in articles all the time, it’s an imperfect world, but usually the most glaring mistakes don’t appear in the first sentence. In a recent Wall Street Journal article about House and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar, this dubious feat was actually accomplished.“On Jan. 29, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told President Trump the coronavirus epidemic was under control,” reads the first sentence of the WSJ report.Michael Caputo, the...

    A report Wednesday from the New York Times about a top vaccine expert at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) who claims he was fired for opposing hydroxychloroquine has quickly fallen apart. Rick Bright, former director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority [BARDA], said he was dismissed from his position because he opposed hydroxychloroquine. This is the anti-malarial drug that has been touted by President Donald Trump as a possible coronavirus treatment. NYT reporters Michael D. Shear and Maggie Haberman pushed Bright’s “scorching statement” following his dismissal, but heavily downplayed...

    One-time Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo has been named to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) top communications position, Caputo told Politico on Wednesday. “I am honored to serve the President to the best of my abilities in this time of crisis and, in so doing, the American people,” Caputo, who will join the department as assistant secretary of HHS for public affairs, told the publication. The hire comes as the White House has grown suspicious of HHS Secretary Alex Azar, believing him to have portrayed himself to the press as attempting in vain in January to sound...

    A quick 5-minute coronavirus test made by Abbott Laboratories and introduced with considerable fanfare by President Donald Trump in a Rose Garden news conference this week is giving state and local health officials very little added capacity to perform speedy tests needed to control the COVID-19 pandemic. “That’s a whole new ballgame,” Trump said. “I want to thank Abbott Labs for the incredible work they’ve done. They’ve been working around-the-clock.” Yet a document circulated among officials at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency this week shows that state and local public health labs...
