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

    Deutsche Welle ^ | 10.23.2020 | nm/msh (AFP, dpa, Reuters)
    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,...

    But he has said before that he doesn't think a federal law would be the way to go. "I don't like to be authoritarian from the federal government, but at the local level, if governors and others essentially mandate the use of masks when you have an outbreak, I think that would be very important," Fauci told Alabama Sen. Doug Jones during a Facebook live event in July. Until now. "Well, if people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it," Fauci told CNN's Erin Burnett Friday. Christie urges Americans to wear a mask and says they...

  • New Research Helps Explain Dramatic Declines in COVID-19 Death Rates

    Instead, a new investigation showed that by mid-August the death rate in those hospitalized with coronavirus-related illness had dropped from 27 percentage points to about 3 percentage points. Led by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, the study showed that a younger, healthier group of people were getting infected and were arriving at the hospital with less-severe symptoms than those infected in the spring. However, the researchers’ analysis showed that these factors accounted for only part of the improvement in survival. The rest, they suspect, resulted from health care providers’ growing experience with the coronavirus. For example, physicians learned...

A total of 921 coronavirus-related deaths were also reported on Thursday.

    It’s just the flu, bro. https://m.jpost.com/breaking-news/over-50-percent-of-coronavirus-patients-lie-during-epidemiological-investigation-646574 See link above about people lying to epidemiological investigators (contact tracers). Coronacrats love this job of quarantining people. They get to take away people’s freedoms in order to “help” society. Great to see that they are being lied to because they don’t deserve to be told the truth. - The good news for Texas, California and Florida is the deaths attributed to coronavirus are dropping even during the casedemic. The national death numbers are stagnating because the states that hadn’t been hit hard yet (those without major urban areas) are getting hit now, and...

    The decision came following a lawsuit against federal and state officials for an array of religious freedom violations.. Two Colorado churches and their pastors are currently protected from the state’s enforcement of capacity limits and face masks during worship services thanks to an order handed down by a federal judge on October 15, 2020. This decision came following a lawsuit against federal and state officials for an array of religious freedom violations. Thomas More Society Special Counsel Rebecca Messall and co-counsel Brad Bergford, who are representing the congregations and their pastors, were pleased with the order. Messall reports a favorable...

    There will be no miracle on 34th Street this year. Santa Claus won't be visiting any Macy's stores in 2020, ending a 159-year holiday season tradition. The department store's tradition started in 1861, but Santa meet-and-greets won't be happening this year because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, Macy's (M) is creating an interactive virtual experience. "To replicate the magical experience of visiting Macy's Santaland for children and their families, we will shift to a virtual engagement this year," Susan Tercero, Macy's vice president of Branded Entertainment, said in a press release. It will be available online from November 27 to December...

    As Ronald Reagan might have said to embattled Oregon Democrat Gov. Kate Brown, “There you go again.” Now a small Christian school in Oregon is suing Brown and other state officials after claiming the state is discriminating against private and religious schools by keeping them locked down while allowing public schools to reopen. The lawsuit claims that Brown has allowed public schools with less than 75 students to reopen, but has continued her ban on the reopening of private/religious schools that meet the same qualifying number of student enrollment, as reported by the Daily Wire.The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed...

    Moderna, the biotechnology firm partnering with the National Institutes of Health to develop a coronavirus vaccine, announced Thursday that it has fully enrolled its trial, with 30,000 participants — more than a third of whom are minorities. The coronavirus vaccine trials have been closely watched to ensure they reflect the diversity of the U.S. population at a minimum, and Moderna’s enrollment was slowed in September to recruit more minorities. A fifth of the participants are Hispanic and 10 percent are Black, according to data released by the company. People over 65, a population also at high risk for coronavirus, make...

    Four newborn babies have died in the Australian city of Adelaide in the past four weeks after they could not be airlifted to Melbourne for special treatment due to strict coronavirus travel restrictions. The state of South Australia does not have a cardiac unit for children meaning seriously ill newborns in Adelaide with heart issues are normally taken to Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital in the nearby state of Victoria – but this option has been ruled out due to the pandemic and a ban on inter-state travel, an inquiry heard on Tuesday

    It’s just the flu, bro. “Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.” - Milton Friedman This is the fear. Bureaucrats want to feed their families and temporary programs mean that their families only get fed temporarily. As a result, Big Corona, the virus industrial complex, and Government Coronacrats all want the lockdown, mask mandates, mandatory testing, and daily/weekly virus reporting to continue permanently. - Coronavirus “deaths” over 1000 for the first time in a long time yesterday. Prepare for a holding pattern when it comes to the relaxation of government Corona rules.

    The coronavirus, widespread quarantines, an unprecedented self-induced recession, and unchecked rioting, looting, and protesting -- all in a presidential election year -- are radically disrupting American habits and behavior. Rents, home prices, and office occupancy rates in major cities, especially on the two coasts, are dropping fast. Techies and young professionals have discovered that they can work from home without paying sky-high housing costs in order to be close to the office. Those more fortunate wonder why they should get bogged down with commutes and urban traffic -- or navigate city sidewalks amid homelessness, crime, racial tensions, and urban unrest...
