  • Coronavirus: Top German doctor in hot water over mask comments

    German Medical Association president Klaus Reinhardt has been forced to clarify his position on mask-wearing after his claim that there was no “scientific evidence they are actually helpful” sparked an outcry from politicians and doctors. Reinhardt told a TV talk show on public broadcaster ZDF that he had doubts wearing simple non-medical masks outdoors was effective against the coronavirus. Such face coverings, he said, offered “no protection at all” to those wearing them, and only “very little protection against infecting others.” A sharp rise in coronavirus cases across Germany in recent weeks has led to stricter rules in many cities,...

    The pandemic is accelerating as the United States climbs the third peak of Covid-19 infections that public health experts have been warning about, the latest NBC News analysis revealed Wednesday. In the last two weeks, the 781,142 confirmed cases of coronavirus reported nationwide was an 18.5 percent jump over the previous two weeks, the figures showed. And in four of the last seven days there were more than 60,000 cases reported -- something that has not happened since the end of July.
  • Court Orders Immediate Release Or Transfer 1,700 San Quentin Prison Inmates Over COVID Outbreak

    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...

    You can judge for yourself the snickering delight of the chattering media, and some Democrats, at his positive test, and those of other GOP politicians. This is perhaps understandable, although those who are actively pulling for their death are behaving in a very ugly manner. But rather than dwelling on that, I am writing about how versions of what we have seen with the President, his staff, and others around them are being re-enacted across the country in schools and in businesses.

The curfew will begin on Saturday and will last for four weeks, he said.

    I had the bright idea of going to the library on Sunday to get a few books. BAD IDEA. I walk in and there is this woman sitting at a plastic fold out table. Granted I have the damn mask on but it is not over my nose. I am walking past the table and this bit*& says, PUT YOUR MASK OVER YOUR NOSE SIR! SIR OVER THE NOSE! I gave her the dirtiest look and walk away. This is the second time this has happened to me. At a local taco place another witch motioned with her hand for...

    Trump is a fount of conspiracy theories, disinformation, and childish fantasizing, and his White House is filled with bumbling sycophants who can't keep their stories straight. Trump desperately wants us to believe his rosy projections for a complete and imminent COVID recovery. But Americans, rightfully, don't think he or his White House can be trusted. The details of the Commander-in-Chief being laid low by a dreaded disease mere weeks before an election are crucial information in the public interest. The president and his deputies work for the people. They owe us the truth. Even if Trump's people weren't the Keystone...

    It is interesting anyway. Watch the difference in Covid totals, I am not saying any country wants to 'take the lead' in this category. But watch, nevertheless. India seems poised to, at least, challenge America, at this questionable total.

    It all seems par for the course for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield bounced back from a rough first week to lead the Cleveland Browns over the Joe Burrow-led Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, on Thursday night. And approximately 6,000 fans were fortunate enough to watch in person when Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced earlier this month that 6,000 could attend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Browns (1-1) prepared fans with a detailed video on their website that delved into social distancing and safety protocols for FirstEnergy Stadium. Everyone attending had to sign a “health promise” and had specific entry times and locations. There...

    The Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday. Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus "on purpose." "Yes, of course, it's intentionally," she responded on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation. "I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top...
  • Europe tests gateway for tracing apps to work across borders [surveillance state]

    Associated Press ^ | September 14, 2020
    Six European Union countries and the bloc’s executive Commission have begun testing a virtual “gateway” to ensure national coronavirus tracing apps can work across borders. The trial starting Monday will allow national computer systems that run tracing apps in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Latvia to communicate with each other via a central hub. If the tests succeed, travelers from each of the six countries will be able to use their own apps while abroad in the other five to ensure they’re notified if they have been in close contact to another user who tests positive. Tracing...

    America’s college students are returning to campus for the Fall semester, and many are finding themselves in an environment that no longer resembles an academic institution, but something closer to a correctional facility for young adults. It’s not just a handful of schools that are pursuing extreme restrictions and punitive measures in the name of “stopping the spread” of the coronavirus, but something that has become a nationwide norm. College campuses have transformed into some of the most restrictive environments in America. Yesterday, after hearing about these conditions, I sent out a post on social media asking for testimonials from...

    The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) says he hopes the coronavirus pandemic will be over in under two years. Speaking in Geneva, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the Spanish flu of 1918 had taken two years to overcome. But he added that current advances in technology could enable the world to halt the virus "in a shorter time". "Of course with more connectiveness, the virus has a better chance of spreading," he said. "But at the same time, we have also the technology to stop it, and the knowledge to stop it," he noted, stressing the importance of "national...

    German lawmakers are calling for a ban on private parties, after the number of coronavirus infections in the country reached a four-month high. Saskia Esken, chairwoman of the Social Democratic Party, said those continuing to hold parties at home were risking the freedoms of others in society. “We must not risk forcing kindergartens and schools to close again and that children to stay at home for weeks because we have allowed an increased infection rate by holding family celebrations with too loose rules,” she told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAS). Ralph Brinkhaus, parliamentary leader of the Christian Democratic Union, said...

    The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Germany’s health authority, reported 782 new infections on Sunday, bringing the nation’s case count to 232,864. The figure is a notable drop from the more than 2,000 infections reported on Saturday, which RKI said was due to returning travelers. The RKI also reported two new deaths, increasing Germany’s death toll from the virus to 9,269 since the pandemic began. Experts in Germany have claimed that not enough people are using the country’s coronavirus tracking app for it to be effective. More than 17 million people have downloaded the app since it was launched in June,...

    So why did the FDA restrict the use of HCQ to hospitalized patients and those participating in clinical trials, and why does it continue to embargo the 150 million doses in the SNS? The AAPS’s complaint alleges that “through a biased, unlawful process,” FDA officials from “prior administrations” and “contrary to the wishes of President Donald Trump” arbitrarily limited the use of HCQ from the SNS. The complaint specifically references, among others, Rick Bright, the director of the Biomedical Advanced Research & Development Authority (BARDA).
