    Milton, a professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland who studies how viruses are transmitted, has helped lead a group of 239 scientists who wrote an open letter to appeal for better recognition of the potential airborne transmission of coronavirus. They dont want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid, he said. Theres also an element of worry that if people think the virus is airborne, theyll stop doing other things they need to do to prevent transmission, such as washing hands, staying apart and cleaning surfaces. There is significant potential for...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) quietly updated a timeline this week to reflect that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) never reported its discovery of the coronavirus to the WHO and that the global health agency had to learn about it by itself, despite the WHOs praise of Chinese transparency. An old WHO timeline of the virus, published on its website, stated: 31 Dec 2019 Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) announced Saturday it is halting its trials of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and HIV treatment lopinavir/ritonavir in patients hospitalized with the coronavirus after results showed the drugs did not reduce mortality rates."These interim trial results show that hydroxychloroquine and lopinavir/ritonavir produce little or no reduction in the mortality of hospitalized COVID-19 patients when compared to standard of care. Solidarity trial investigators will interrupt the trials with immediate effect," the WHO said in a statement, referencing multi-country trials it is conducting.

    As political forces in the United States push for strict mask mandates to fight the spread of the coronavirus, new guidance issued by the World Health Organization undermines the lefts claim that people must be forced to wear the protective equipment in public. The WHO posted the updated recommendations in a Wednesday tweet. This most recent change, which outlines when people should not wear a mask in public, follows months of inconsistent information from the group about face coverings. ... People should NOT wear masks when exercising, the WHOs update reads, as masks may reduce the ability to breathe comfortably....

    Today the Washington Free Beacon points out that the World Health Organization has updated its official timeline of the coronavirus outbreak to make clear that China did not self-report the existence of the virus to WHO in December. Heres what the old timeline claimed: 31 Dec 2019Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified. The revised version of the timeline makes clear that WHO wasnt informed by China directly. Instead, the virus first came to the attention of WHO when officials noticed Chinese media reports...

    Common Sense Book ^ | 06/25/2020? | David Spring M. Ed.
    On June 20, 2020, Washington Governor Jay Inslee held a press conference claiming that Yakima was being overwhelmed by the corona virus. Given that in the past, Inslee claimed 2 million people would be killed in the US by the corona virus and that hospitals in Washington state would be overwhelmed by the corona virus, it is amazing to me that anyone still believes anything this guy says. For those with short memories,...
  • 'The world went crazy' with lockdowns, says Sweden's Coronavirus expert as he blasts WHO for 'misinterpreting data' to brand his country as one of 11 nations seeing a 'resurgence'

    Sweden's top virus expert has said the 'world went mad' with coronavirus lockdowns which 'fly in the face of what is known about handling virus pandemics'. Anders Tegnell, who advised Sweden to avoid full lockdown in favour of a 'herd immunity' strategy, said world leaders caved to political pressure amid panic - and that the crippling economic downsides of lockdown will far outweigh the benefits. Sweden has confirmed 68,390 cases of coronavirus and 5,230 deaths - far above its Nordic neighbours, but its economy is intact and actually posted slight growth in the first quarter of this year. Tegnell also...

    The fight against COVID-19 has received a major leap following confirmation that the steroid, dexamethasone, has life-saving potential for critically ill COVID-19 patients. World Health Organisation (WHO) Director-General, Tedros Ghebreyesus, said during a recent virtual briefing from Geneva, said the next challenge was how to increase production and rapidly and equitably distribute dexamethasone worldwide, focusing on where it is needed most. According to researchers from Oxford University, a low-dose regimen of dexamethasone, which is typically used to treat certain forms of arthritis, severe allergies, asthma, and certain types of cancer for 10 days was found to reduce the risk of...

    Kazakhstan's leading infectious disease physician Dinagul Baesheva spoke about why the country hasnt followed the footsteps of the WHO and the U.S. and continues to treat COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine, Kazinform correspondent reports. Speaking at an online briefing of the Central Communications Service, Baesheva pointed out that the disease (COVID-19) causes different pathogeneses. According to her, hydroxychloroquine is used in patients depending on the severity of their condition and clinical laboratory specifics. She also mentioned that hydroxychloroquine had been extensively appropriated in some European countries and the U.S. According to her, no fatalities caused by hydroxychloroquine have been reported yet....

    World leaders must not politicize the coronavirus pandemic but unite to fight it, the head of the World Health Organization warned Monday, reminding all that the pandemic is still accelerating and producing record daily increases in infections. The comments by Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has faced criticism from U.S. President Donald Trump, comes as the number of reported infections soared in Brazil, Iraq, India and southern and western U.S. states, straining local hospitals. Tedros never mentioned Trumps name or the fact that he is determined to pull the United States out of the U.N. health agency but warned against politicizing...
  • WHO reports largest single-day increase in Coronavirus cases; Oklahoma sees new daily record

    The World Health Organization has reported the largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases by its count, at more than 183,000 new cases in the latest 24 hours. The UN health agency says Brazil led the way with 54,771 cases tallied and the US next at 36,617. Over 15,400 came in in India. Experts say rising case counts can reflect multiple factors including more widespread testing as well as broader infection. Overall in the pandemic, WHO has reported 8,708,008 cases 183,020 in the last 24 hours with 461,715 deaths worldwide, with a daily increase of 4,743. More than two-thirds...
  • Federal review confirms CDC coronavirus test kits were faulty because of 'likely' contamination

    The Hill ^ | 06 20 2020 | J. Edward Moreno
    A federal review by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) found that the early version of the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) coronavirus test kits failed because of likely contamination. The review, which was first reported by Sinclair Broadcasting Group, found that there was time pressure at the CDC to launch testing, and lab practices that may have been insufficient to prevent the risk of contamination. Their review also found they did not check the kits despite anomalies during manufacturing. The review does not appear to assign blame directly to the CDC, The Washington Post reported....

"The virus is still spreading fast, it is still deadly, and most people are still susceptible."

    , New Yorks WAMC public radio did manage to get one serious question in about the nursing home scandal during their otherwise equally softballish-interview Thursday with New Yorks so-called Luv Guv. His answer was as despicable as it was tone deaf: Do you ever change your mind, governor, about anything based on what these reporters are saying? host Alan Chartock asked Cuomo. I think about the nursing home situation, you got a lot of criticism from them, they asked one question after another. Is there anything you could point to in which you say Ok, they really sort of have...

    European governments are working with the United States on plans to overhaul the World Health Organization, a top health official for a European country said, signalling that Europe shares some of the concerns that led Washington to say it would quit. The European health official, who spoke on condition of anonymity while discussing initiatives that are not public, said Britain, France, Germany and Italy were discussing WHO reforms with the United States at the technical level. The aim, the official said, was to ensure WHOs independence, an apparent reference to allegations that the body was too close to China during...
  • Where are the conservatives in Washington? Exclusive: Erik Rush explains the dearth of pushback against demands of 'communistic' BLM

    Over the last few days, we've heard a few conservative commentators discussing the lack of pushback we're seeing from Republican lawmakers and so-called conservative leaders against recent efforts to advance a radical socialist agenda on the part of the political left. It could be said that this push was touched off by the killing of George Floyd, a black man, by a white Minneapolis police officer on May 25; a more accurate statement is that leftist radicals and socialists in government are opportunistically exploiting Floyd's death as an ostensible justification for fundamentally transforming our nation in their perverse image, starting...
