    Even with more than 500,000 dead worldwide, scientists are struggling to learn how often the virus kills. Here’s why. More than six months into the pandemic, the coronavirus has infected more than 11 million people worldwide, killing more than 525,000. But despite the increasing toll, scientists still do not have a definitive answer to one of the most fundamental questions about the virus: How deadly is it? A firm estimate could help governments predict how many deaths would ensue if the virus spread out of control. The figure, usually called the infection fatality rate, could tell health officials what to...
  • What’s your risk from coronavirus? Lower than we think, new study suggests

    06/22/2020 6:32:39 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 32 replies ^ | 6-22-20 | Mecury Ndews
    But critics say the study oversimplified answers to one of COVID-19’s most vexing questions Months into the new coronavirus pandemic, researchers are grappling with an urgent question: How much risk do we have of catching COVID-19 — or dying from it — from our chance encounters? The debate has flared as authorities find themselves alternately accused of moving too fast or not fast enough in easing restrictions so more business and activity can resume. Overall, it’s probably less now than many likely believe, given the daily drumbeat of new cases, hospitalizations and deaths, according to new research this month by...
  • America Is Giving Up on the Pandemic

    06/08/2020 3:38:53 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 37 replies
    After months of deserted public spaces and empty roads, Americans have returned to the streets. But they have come not for a joyous reopening to celebrate the country’s victory over the coronavirus. Instead, tens of thousands of people have ventured out to protest the killing of George Floyd by police. Demonstrators have closely gathered all over the country, and in blocks-long crowds in large cities, singing and chanting and demanding justice. Police officers have dealt with them roughly, crowding protesters together, blasting them with lung and eye irritants, and cramming them into paddy wagons and jails. There’s no point in...
  • The CDC's New 'Best Estimate' Implies a COVID-19 Infection Fatality Rate Below 0.3%

    05/25/2020 4:15:28 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 126 replies ^ | 5-25-20 | Jacob Sullum
    That rate is much lower than the numbers used in the horrifying projections that shaped the government response to the epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current "best estimate" for the fatality rate among Americans with COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. The CDC also estimates that 35 percent of people infected by the COVID-19 virus never develop symptoms. Those numbers imply that the virus kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected by it—far lower than the infection fatality rates (IFRs) assumed by the alarming projections that drove the initial government response to the...
  • NYC health head rejected NYPD mask plea: ‘I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops’

    New York City’s health commissioner blew off an urgent NYPD request for 500,000 surgical masks as the coronavirus crisis mounted — telling a high-ranking police official that “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops,” The Post has learned. Dr. Oxiris Barbot made the heartless remark during a brief phone conversation in late March with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, sources familiar with the matter said Wednesday. Monahan asked Barbot for 500,000 masks but she said she could only provide 50,000, the sources said. “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops,” Barbot said, according to sources....

    The world has not seen this dangerous of a virus since the Spanish flu of 1917. But in today's world, the press and the Democrats use it as a political football. They blame President Trump instead of the ones who are really culpable: the Chinese Communist government. American Thinker interviewed experts on China to get their opinions on who is really to blame. In looking at the Chinese government over the years, should Americans think of them as friendly, adversaries, enemies, or "frenemies"?

    Leave it to Wyoming to figure out a way to conquer the challenge of social distancing. Several of our cities are hosting cruising nights to give citizens an outlet for being social and safe at the same time. Check out this video from a cruising night hosted in Wheatland last week. Thanks to Rod Russell for sharing. I have had friends tell me these types of cruising events have happened in Rawlins and Lander also. Wyoming is not alone in our "let's go cruising" idea. The Clipper shared a story about cruising nights that happened in Nebraska last month, too. There are reports that cities...

    Israel has no role in the Palestinians' medical supply shortage. The real story is a shortage of leadership -- and rampant corruption We are in the midst of a global health crisis unlike any we have faced in our lifetime. A pandemic has filled the future with uncertainty and the world community is scared, but even dark times have a silver lining. All over the world, people are uplifting and supporting each other from a distance. Now is a time to come together. Sadly, Israel’s enemies are a clear exception to this. They never miss an opportunity to criticize the...
  • Has closing of Pa.’s state-run wine and spirits stores reopened interest in liquor privatization?

    Penn Live ^ | 4/8/20
    Trying to buy wine or liquor from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s online store these days is a lot like playing the lottery. The odds are against you in being able to buy your favorite wine or spirits from the state’s website. Gov. Tom Wolf closed the brick-and-mortar retail liquor stores on March 17 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Last week, the state resumed online sales but it’s been an exercise in frustration for many who want to buy booze. With demand for these products is outstripping the PLCB’s ability to accept and process orders, the talk about privatizing all or...
  • A group at MIT figured out how to make an emergency ventilator for $100 using a common hospital item — instead of the usual $30,000

    04/07/2020 5:43:36 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 56 replies ^ | 4/1/20 | Jessica Snouwaert
    A team at MIT developed a ventilator that could be built with $100 dollars worth of parts — a fraction of the average $30,000 cost most machines take to manufacture, according to a report by SciTechDaily. The innovative design of the machine relies upon a bag-valve resuscitator, a piece of equipment found in bulk at most hospitals to help patients breathe, the report said. Ventilators are one of the most in-demand medical items at the moment amid a worldwide shortage due to the coronavirus. The team, MIT E-Vent, which consists of doctors, engineers, and computer scientists, decided to fervently revisit...

    Chinese state media continued its relentless campaign to spin the coronavirus pandemic to the Communist Party’s advantage with an editorial at the Global Times on Tuesday blaming the “three arrogances” of the West for preventing the world from uniting against the disease and forgetting Beijing’s role in spreading it. The editorial began with the biggest of Big Lies, the false assertion that China had no idea the coronavirus was so contagious until it had already escaped from the city of Wuhan, where the outbreak began. In truth, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) knew how contagious the virus was for weeks...
  • Flashback to a FLASHBACK: Obama Administration Dumps Quarantine Rules

    04/05/2020 6:28:43 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 4 replies ^ | Oct 1 2014 | Kerry Picket
    The Obama administration withdrew updated quarantine regulations in 2010, prompting questions about how the policy change may have impacted the current Ebola situation. In April 2010, Politico reported the administration “quietly dumped quarantine rules that would have required air passengers to submit more information to airlines and strengthened the government’s authority to detain travelers suspected of carrying disease.” Politico initially reported in August of 2009 that the Obama administration examined Bush administration 2005 quarantine regulations, which were criticized by civil liberty advocates. “The proposals to limit liberty represent a dangerous precedent to constitutional theory, particularly when there’s almost no evidence...

    What is the lowest point we can allow our economy to sink before we say, enough and start it back up ourselves? We are at about a 20,000 Dow. Do we wait until it sinks to 15,000? Do we wait until 10,000? In every war we have battled toward a point where we could declare victory. Never did it ever require us to kill every single enemy. Why is it that 13 states can stay open (yes they have less illness; but this is a highly mobile nation regardless of what we are fed by government. We need to be...

  • Why have so many Coronavirus patients died in Italy? NOTE: Only 12% of death certificates have shown a direct causality from Covid-19

    The Telegraph ^ | 03/30/2020 | Sarah Newey
    The coronavirus pandemic is exacting a heavy toll on Italy, with hospitals overwhelmed and a nationwide lockdown imposed. But experts are also concerned about a seemingly high death rate, with the number of fatalities outstripping the total reported in China. Of the 63,927 people confirmed coronavirus patients in Italy, 6,077 so far have died. By contrast China has many more cases, 81,496, but 3,274 fatalities. In very crude terms, this means that around nine per cent of confirmed coronavirus patients have died in Italy, compared to four per cent in China. By this measure Germany, which has so far identified...
