  • WHO reports largest single-day increase in Coronavirus cases; Oklahoma sees new daily record

    06/21/2020 9:09:39 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 78 replies
    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...

    VIDEO Now that there will be a Trump rally in Tulsa with over 800,000 signed up to attend, the media has discovered that coronavirus is rising again. Of course, during the recent wave of protests with little to no social distancing that concern was pretty much absent. Oddly enough, the graph of the actual deaths from the virus as you can see paints a starkly contrasting picture to what is now being portrayed.

    A former top US health official has told Congress the country could face its "darkest winter in modern history" because of the coronavirus. Rick Bright led the government agency trying to develop a vaccine, but was removed from his post last month. He has previously said he was ousted from the job for raising concern over a treatment being touted by President Donald Trump. The US leader dismissed him as a "disgruntled" employee.

    About 95 percent of the US is currently on some form of lockdown after President Donald Trump issued guidelines that called for 30 days of measures to slow the spread of the virus. The government projections, obtained by the New York Times, indicate that lifting the strict social distancing measures now in place will see a second wave surge in infections and deaths in about June and July.
  • Coronavirus Update: Cuomo Says ‘I’m Seeing People Die All Around Me’ As He Appeals For More Federal Government Help

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo continued to push for additional help from the federal government as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread. There are now 66,497 confirmed coronavirus cases in New York, Cuomo said Monday, including 9,517 hospitalized, 2,352 ICU patients and 4,204 patients who have been hospitalized and discharged. The death toll climbed to 1,218. “Big picture is the situation is painfully clear now. There’s no question as to what we’re dealing with. There’s no question as to the consequences. There’s no question as to the grief and loss of life. And there’s no question about what we must do. There...

    Britain's coronavirus crisis could last until Spring 2021 and see 7.9million people hospitalised, a secret briefing for senior NHS figures has revealed. The document, seen by The Guardian newspaper, shows that health chiefs expect the virus to last for another 12 months, and details how it will impact key staff in the NHS, police and fire brigade. It says: 'As many as 80% of the population are expected to be infected with Covid-19 in the next 12 months, and up to 15% (7.9 million people) may require hospitalisation.' It is understood the document was drawn up in recent days by...
  • Ohio Health Official Estimates 1% Of Residents — More Than 100,000 People — Are Already Infected. Is That Realistic?

    Lotta buzz overnight about this figure from yesterday’s press conference with Gov. Mike DeWine, which is good. Scary numbers drive home to people how serious this is.But the number didn’t make sense to me intuitively. Since 80 percent of people with the disease experience mild symptoms, 20 percent should logically require medical intervention. If 100,000+ Ohioans have it, there should already be a glut of patients at ERs needing oxygen, ventilators, and so on. There are no reports of that yet. So how can one percent of the population be infected? “We know now, just the fact of community...
  • Why the Presidency Can’t Just Go Back to ‘Normal’ After Trump

    SNIP Here’s the problem: Many of these “presidential norms and traditions” that Trump has left by the wayside aren’t timeless at all; they’re actually quite new. They grew up alongside and in reaction to the expansion of both the federal state and the presidency—a process that began in the early 20th century but gained steam from the 1930s onward. With the growth of what Arthur Schlesinger Jr. called the “imperial presidency,” each occupant of the Oval Office has left his imprimatur on the development of what we think of as normative presidential conduct. That means that whatever impact Trump has...

    In 50 years, Billie Eilish will be turning 69 years old, technology will likely be unrecognizable, and the world may have lost 1/3 of all its plant and animal species. A new study has found that warming temperatures will likely cause hundreds of species to go extinct. Researchers at the University of Arizona analyzed 538 plant and animal species from around the world, 44% of which already faced local extinctions in at least one area in the world. What they discovered is that the areas that suffered from species extinctions had "larger and faster changes in hottest yearly temperatures than...

    SCHIFF: "But this has become the President's defense. And yet, this defense proved indefensible. If abuse of power is not impeachable, even though it is clear the Founders considered it the highest of all high crimes and misdemeanors, but if it were not impeachable, then a whole range of utterly unacceptable conduct and the president would now be beyond reach. Trump could offer Alaska to the Russians in exchange for support in the next election or decide to move to Mar-a-Lago permanently and let Jared Kushner run the country, delegating to him the decision whether to go to war. Because...

    Hotter weather thanks to climate change could cause a spike in deaths related to injuries—including suicides, assaults, and drownings—according to a study. One expert described the problem to Newsweek as the looming "hidden public health burden" of global warming. Deaths by suicides, assaults, transport accidents, drownings and falls were forecast to be on the up if temperatures rose on average by 1.5 and 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the authors of the paper published in the journal Nature Medicine found. The researchers analyzed data on deaths and temperatures between 1980 to 2017 in mainland United States, excluding Alaska and...

    The oceans are losing oxygen due to climate change, with dire consequences for marine life and vulnerable communities and fisheries, a nature conservation report revealed Saturday. This is the “ultimate wake-up call” for humanity on ever increasing carbon emissions, according to the report, published at the UN Climate Change conference in Madrid. The authors say the report, “Ocean deoxygenation: Everyone’s problem,” is the largest ever peer-reviewed study into the causes, impacts and possible solutions to the ocean’s oxygen loss. […] According to the report, areas of water with low oxygen concentrations are expanding, with roughly 700 ocean areas across the...

    Nine crucial tipping points in Earth’s climate are now “active” and in danger of being crossed thanks to warming global temperatures caused by human activity, warn scientists in a commentary published on Wednesday in Nature. These climate thresholds, such as the decline of ice sheets and loss of biodiverse habitats, could cumulatively trigger a global tipping point that would be “an existential threat to civilization,” cautioned the authors of the article. “Evidence is mounting that these events could be more likely than was thought, have high impacts, and are interconnected across different biophysical systems, potentially committing the world to longterm...
