    For months, scientists and public health experts have warned of mounting evidence that the novel coronavirus is airborne, transmitted through tiny droplets called aerosols that linger in the air much longer than the larger globs that come from coughing or sneezing. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agrees. The CDC recently changed its official guidance to note that aerosols are “thought to be the main way the virus spreads” and to warn that poorly ventilated indoor spaces are particularly dangerous.
  • Nasal Solution May Stop Spread of COVID-19, Study Finds

    A commercially available nasal antiseptic solution "inactivates" COVID-19 just 15 seconds after the coronavirus is exposed to it, effectively preventing the infection from developing, according to a study published Thursday by JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. By inactivating the virus, the antiseptic nasal rinse -- a povidone-iodine solution administered in the nostril -- also would help prevent those infected from spreading it to others, the researchers said. The findings are based on lab experiments designed to assess how the rinse affects new coronavirus cells "in vitro," or in test tubes. Researchers have yet to study the rinse in humans with...
  • Study shows vitamin D deficiency can increase risk of catching COVID-19

    According to a retroactive study conducted by a team from the University of Chicago Medicine, people with low vitamin D levels may be up to twice as likely to test positive for COVID-19. The study was conducted by looking back at nearly 500 patients who had vitamin D levels measured within a year of being tested for COVID-19 and comparing those levels with the frequency of a positive test. "The relative risk of testing positive for COVID-19 was 1.77 times greater for patients with likely deficient vitamin D status compared with patients with likely sufficient vitamin D status, a difference...

    As doctors see more and more COVID-19 patients, they are noticing an odd trend: Patients whose blood oxygen saturation levels are exceedingly low but who are hardly gasping for breath. These patients are quite sick, but their disease does not present like typical acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a type of lung failure known from the 2003 outbreak of the SARS coronavirus and other respiratory diseases. Their lungs are clearly not effectively oxygenating the blood, but these patients are alert and feeling relatively well, even as doctors debate whether to intubate them by placing a breathing tube down the throat....

    COVID – why terminology really, really matters[And the consequences of getting it horribly wrong]When is a case not a case?Since the start of the COVID pandemic I have watched almost everyone get mission critical things wrong. In some ways this is not surprising. Medical terminology is horribly imprecise, and often poorly understood. In calmer times such things are only of interest to research geeks like me. Were they talking about CVD, or CHD?However, right now, it really, really, matters. Specifically, with regards to the term COVID ‘cases.’Every day we are informed of a worrying rise in COVID cases in country...

    The Annals of Internal Medicine just published a comprehensive new study on how contagious the COVID-19 virus is. And I’m sorry to report that the case for a number of popular new practices that seem to have filled some spiritual need a lot of Americans have for self-abasement just completely collapsed. The list of practices no longer having any conceivable rationale includes: -Closing down schools. -Closing down gyms, barber shops, or any other businesses. -Limiting the number of patrons allowed in restaurants or other businesses at one time. -Mass testing for the COVID-19 virus. -Putting healthy people in quarantine. -Keeping...

    How damaging has the faux hysteria emanating from the media over the coronavirus been? If a new poll from Franklin-Templeton Gallup is an indication, the result has been making most of the country completely ignorant of the scientific facts regarding the current pandemic. Not coincidently, the false perceptions that now abound just so happen to play right into left-wing desires, like perpetual lockdowns and keeping schools closed. Brit Hume shared some of the results of the study in question this morning. They are either mind-blowing or mind-numbing depending on your outlook.

    Stunning evidence proves effectiveness of HCQ in treating coronavirus. Data should land Dr. Fauci in prison.The liberal mainstream media can’t hide this truth from the public forever.The latest international testing of hydroxychloroquine treatment of coronavirus shows countries that had early use of the drug had a 79% lower mortality rate than countries that banned the use of the safe malaria drug. This means that Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx, the CDC, the liberal fake news media and the tech giants have been pushing a lie that has had deadly consequences!America has lost (reportedly) over 150,000 lives. That could have been...

    New York spends more money per capita on healthcare than any other state in the Union. It ranks third in the country in physicians per 100,000 population at 375.1. In terms of raw infrastructure and medical resources, New York should have been one of the best places in the world to receive treatment for COVID-19. Yet analysis of New York’s COVID-19 statistics reveal it to be one of the most deadly places in the world for a COVID-19 patient. Consider that the tiny country of San Marino reports the worst “deaths per 1 million population” for COVID-19 at 1,238 per...

    There hasn’t been much over at CNN of late that deviates from the usual, tiresome, “Bad Orange Man is a deranged, homicidal Nazi” mantra that’s par for the course at most any non-Fox News media outlet these days. But last week I was surprised to run across this surprising “Cuomo Prime Time” segment between CNN host Chris Cuomo and Dr. Sanjay Gupta. In the remarkable, albeit short, break from the “Cases! Cases! Cases!” panic porn we’re used to seeing, Gupta explained the concept of T cells when it comes to population immunity. “T cells are sort of the core component, adaptive...

    The new work builds on a recent Cell paper... which showed that 40 to 60 percent of people never exposed to SARS-CoV-2 had T cells that reacted to the virus. Their immune systems recognized fragments of the virus it had never seen before. This finding turned out to be a global phenomenon and was reported in people from the Netherlands, Germany, the United Kingdom and Singapore. Scientists wondered if these T cells came from people who had previously been exposed to common cold coronaviruses—...

(Regular updates below) “The only means to fight the plague is honesty.” (Albert Camus, 1947) Overview According to the latest immunological studies, the overall lethality of Covid-19 (IFR) is about 0.1% to 0.3% and thus in the range of a severe influenza (flu). For people at high risk or high exposure (including health care workers), early or prophylactic treatment is essential to prevent progression of the disease. In countries like the US, the UK, and also Sweden (without a lockdown),...

    As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying...

    Hospitals from across the country will no longer send CCP virus or COVID-19 related data to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and are instead required to send it to a central database in Washington beginning July 15, according to an HHS statement released Friday. HHS said Vice President Mike Pence sent a letter to hospital administrators across the country asking them to send daily pandemic data on “testing, capacity, utilization, and patient flow” to the federal government. “The objective is to allow states and hospitals either to leverage existing data reporting capabilities or, where those capabilities are insufficient,...

  • Lockdowns DON'T work, study claims: Researchers say forced stay-at-home orders were not associated with lower coronavirus deaths in countries around the world

    Lockdowns have not had a big impact on coronavirus death rates around the world, scientists have claimed. Dozens of countries have been forced to tell people to stay home and close shops in a bid to stop the Covid-19 pandemic since it broke out in January. But now a study has claimed the drastic measures don't even work. They found whether a country was locked down or not was 'not associated' with death rate.

    An Italian infectious disease expert said that the CCP virus is losing its virulence and could disappear on its own without needing a vaccine. Professor Matteo Bassetti, head of the infectious diseases clinic at the Policlinico San Martino hospital in Italy, said that the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus, is losing its ability to infect people and the mortality rate is decreasing. “The clinical impression I have is that the virus is changing in severity,” Bassetti told The Telegraph, adding that in March and early April, the patterns of virulence were very different from what...
