  • COVID Update: Trouble In Europe, Rare Reinfections, And Canada Is Lying

    American Council on Science and Health ^ | 10/15/20 | Alex Berezow
    Here are some of the most relevant COVID-19 developments in recent days: Europe's infections are out of control; COVID reinfection is rare; all treatments probably have serious but rare side effects; the WHO offers a misguided policy; and America's northern neighbor isn't telling the truth.

    The climate alarmists of our day would have us believe that a grave environmental crisis exists; one that requires immediate and drastic action in order to save the planet. The leaders of the United Nations tell us that the solution requires all nations to submit to a central government, a New World Order. The UN's strategy for resolving the climate emergency consists of seventeen goals that fall under their Agenda 2030. These objectives, however, go far beyond protecting the environment. They call for a Marxist type of government that distributes wealth evenly among all nations and all people. The World...
  • Rapid Home COVID-19 Tests Are the Best Path to a New Normal. They're Illegal.

    Reason ^ | November 2020 | Ronald Bailey
    COVID-19 diagnostic testing has been greatly scaled up from a few thousand tests per week back in early March to 2 million tests per week in early August. But the summer upsurge in COVID-19 diagnoses, hospitalizations, and deaths in the U.S. highlights the fact that we still don't have enough testing to provide individual Americans and health care professionals with the information needed to squelch the pandemic. A huge part of the problem is that most asymptomatic, presymptomatic, and mildly afflicted people don't know they're infected, even as they spread the virus to others while working, shopping, and gathering in...
  • Australia: Four Newborn Babies Die After Being Denied Heart Surgery Due to COVID Travel Rules

    Interstate transfers to Melbourne blocked due to corona lockdown restrictions. Four newborn babies in Adelaide, Australia have died after being denied life-saving heart surgery due to coronavirus travel restrictions. Adelaide is the only mainland Australian capital that doesn’t provide paediatric cardiac surgery, therefore around 100 babies a year have to be sent interstate to receive treatment. However, due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions imposed by the Australian government, transfers to Melbourne have stopped and the babies have to make a longer journey to Sydney instead. “Obsetrician Professor John Svigos said four babies who had died in Adelaide in the past month...

    Lady I work with just came back after a week of being gone. Week ago she got a call that her aunt tested positive for covid. Turns out she is claiming she tests negative but 59 of her relatives were positive with nobody going to the hospital. She is one of the biggest members of the fear porn mob and now she is better after seeing her family members get it and it is not a death sentence. This all happened at a party she claims. I really do not know what to believe after hearing that. 59 get it...
  • Mouthwash could 'inactivate' human coronaviruses that cause infections like the common cold

    Mouthwashes may help lower the transmission and spread of the coronavirus, according to a new study. In the study, published in the Journal of Medical Virology, researchers investigated over-the-counter mouthwashes and nasal rinses commonly found in drug stores and supermarkets, since both types of products “directly impact the major sites of reception and transmission of human coronaviruses (HCoV)” - namely, the mouth and nose - and “may provide an additional level of protection against the virus.” To find out whether mouthwashes and nasal rinses would be effective against the coronavirus, the researchers tested a common human coronavirus known as 229e...

    CBS Bay Area ^ | 20 Oct 20202
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A state appeals court ordered San Quentin State Prison on Tuesday to immediately cut its inmate population by half, which would require transferring or releasing about 1,700 inmates, citing the state’s inability to manage a deadly COVID-19 outbreak at the prison. The First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco ruled that the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and San Quentin Prison Acting Warden Ron Broomfield “have acted with deliberate indifference and relief is warranted,” the court opinion stated. The ruling stemmed from a case involving 64-year-old Ivan Von Staich, who along with...

    While it might seem like the coronavirus is never going away, people are still working hard to find a way to treat it. That includes one Texas teen, who just won $25,000 for her work on a possible solution for the virus. 14-year-old eighth-grader Anika Chebrolu of Frisco has won the 2020 3M Young Scientist Challenge for her study on COVID-19. Anika started working on ways to fight the flu for her project, but when the pandemic hit, her focus shifted to figuring out COVID-19. Her breakthrough could mean the beginning of a viable treatment for the virus.

    The UK’s coronavirus lockdown has impacted every area of healthcare, including cancer treatment, paediatrics, and cardiovascular care, resulting in excess deaths and delays to treatment, according to analysis. Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures had already revealed on Monday that there were 25,000 excess deaths at private homes since the beginning of the year — with only nine per cent being as a result of coronavirus. Another piece of analysis predicted excess deaths would rise directly as a result of the government’s “Protect the NHS” message which deterred people from making medical appointments.

    This case is not about one particular law, but the rule of law. California Assemblymen Kevin Kiley and James Gallagher are suing to stop California Governor Gavin Newsom’s “one man rule.” Kiley and Gallagher filed their most recent Trial Brief, and Gov. Gavin Newsom filed his. The trial will take place Wednesday, October 21, 2020 in Sutter County. The Michigan Supreme Court recently struck down the 1945 law that Governor Gretchen Whitmer has been using to keep the state in lockdown since April. And in September, a federal judge in Pennsylvania ruled that Governor Tom Wolf’s lockdown orders were unconstitutional,...

    New York’s “red zone” coronavirus restrictions will be adjusted this week to make them more tailored to each area’s needs, Gov. Cuomo announced Monday, as infection rates in the hotspots continued to drop. In a conference call with reporters, Cuomo said the changes will be unveiled Wednesday — roughly two weeks after the color-coded shutdowns of schools and non-essential businesses were first implemented in parts of southern Brooklyn, central Queens, Rockland County, Orange County and some areas of upstate.

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday pushed for a comprehensive COVID-19 relief package, saying he would accept a deal worth more than $2.2 trillion despite opposition to large spending measures among his fellow Republicans in the U.S. Senate. “I want to do it even bigger than the Democrats,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News, as talks between House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin approached a Tuesday deadline for reaching a bipartisan deal that could pass Congress before Election Day on Nov. 3. The White House has proposed $1.8 trillion in coronavirus relief, while Pelosi...
  • Should we plan for regular 'circuit-breaker' coronavirus lockdowns?

    newscientist ^ | 10/19/2020 | Clare Wilson
    With cases of covid-19 rising in most parts of the UK, there is fierce debate over the best way to respond. While some people argue for a “let the virus rip” strategy, others want increasing social restrictions, up to and including full lockdown, as happened in the pandemic’s first wave. But is there another way? One idea gaining ground is that countries should hold regular pre-emptive lockdowns, each lasting about two weeks. They could be timed to coincide with school holidays, minimising disruption to education. In the UK, this would mean having these shut downs around every two months. The...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom just gave Californians more regulations for an early Christmas present — and anyone hoping to celebrate the holidays with family better hope there’s a gift receipt. Just in time for the Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities, when most families gather with loved ones, California’s Democrat governor has issued a new set of regulations that bans gatherings of more than three households. Additionally, no indoor gatherings are permitted, so don’t plan on eating around the dining room table unless you lug it out into your backyard.
