    Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the dumbest administration on earth. Make America Senile Again. Joe Biden was supposedly elected to end all the madness. Make the crazy stop. Give in to the media’s lunatic four-year temper tantrum so the rest of us can get a wink of sleep.
  • Ivermectin Use Associated with Reduced Duration of COVID-19 Febrile Illness in a Community Setting

    Abstract of article published in The Lancet ^ | 12/15/20250 | Nasir Afsar, et al.
    Abstract BACKGROUND: SARS-CoV-2 infection (COVID-19) is a potentially lethal disease that may progress into severe respiratory distress syndrome requiring ventilatory support. While azithromycin (AZI) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) are considered similar to placebo in COVID-19, other drugs such as ivermectin (IVER), are being repurposed to treat this pandemic. This study was designed to assess the effects of ivermectin on duration of febrile illness and disease outcomes in mild-to-moderate COVID-19 infection in a community setting. METHODS: In this case-control study 95 suspected patients of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 were included. The controls (Group-A) received AZI+HCQ for seven days while the cases (Group-B) received IVER+AZI+HCQ...

    Numbers of incidental infections could form significant percentage of total hospitalizations. States throughout the U.S. are failing to distinguish between patients hospitalized because of COVID-19 and patients who merely test positive for the disease while being hospitalized for other reasons. Hospitalizations have for months been viewed as one of the critical indicators of the coronavirus pandemic: Countries worldwide have relied heavily on the number of patients sent to hospitals because of the virus as a way of measuring how severe a region or a nation's outbreak really is. Yet many, if not most, states are failing to make the distinction...
  • After Receiving Vaccination, 240 Israelis Diagnosed with Coronavirus

    Breitbart ^ | 01/03/2020 | Deborah Brand
    According to Channel 13 News, the number highlights the need for people to continue to protect themselves against the virus, because the body takes time to develop the antibodies needed to fight it. Studies of the Pfizer vaccine have demonstrated that immunity begins occurring only 8-10 days after the first dose and even then immunity is only at around 50 percent. For that reason, a second dose is given 21 days after the first. It is also unclear whether the vaccine prevents a person from spreading the virus. While the individual would not get sick, since the immune system is...

    Behold Israel and Focus on the Family ^ | post-vaccine 2029 | Amir Tsarfati and Focus on the Family
    I'll post the Focus on the Family link below. Two remarkably similar videos, emphasizing the science, which is not a bad word but the factual basis of any discussion, or at least the start of it. There is no way for the RNA to affect our DNA because it never enters the nucleus of the cell. There are side effects to everything, including the virus, but nothing nearly as bad as the disease itself. The whole process was overseen by the FDA and nothing that we weren't told about could possibly have been done. And of course there is the...

    Health experts are weighing in after a local nurse tested positive for COVID-19 more than a week after receiving the Pfizer vaccine. In a Facebook message posted on December 18, Matthew W., an ER nurse at at two different local hospitals, talked about receiving the Pfizer vaccine that day. He told ABC 10News his arm was sore for a day but he suffered no other side effects. Six days later on Christmas Eve -- after working a shift in the COVID-19 unit -- Matthew, 45, became sick. He got the chills and later came down with muscle aches and fatigue....

    In complete contradiction to the popular narrative used by Democrat politicians and governors across the United States, a new study of 10 million people in Wuhan, China – ground zero for the COVID virus, showed that asymptomatic spread of COVID does not occur, nullifying all reasoning for business closures and lockdowns.The study, published in the November issue of the peer-reviewed scientific journal Nature Communications, studied 9,899,828 residents of Wuhan, screening them between May 14, 2020 and June 1, 2020. The results provided clear evidence as to the possibility of any asymptomatic transmission of the virus.The study was compiled by 19...

    For those who recover from COVID-19, new research shows immunity to the virus can last for at least 8 months, and may last much longer.Understanding how our immune system responds to the virus is an important step in vaccine development.Currently two vaccines, from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, are authorized for use in the United States.Several other promising vaccines are also in development, but until they become widely available we must practice physical distancing and mask-wearing to keep transmission down.All data and statistics are based on publicly available data at the time of publication.

    ...But wait. There’s more. They observed that — at least since 2016 — the WIV had been involved with researching bat coronavirus that is 96.2% similar to the SARS-CoV-2, the Wuhan coronavirus. WIV senior researcher Shi Zhengli had previously said that the genetic sequence of SARS-CoV-2 didn’t match. Moreover, the State Department says the WIV hasn’t been transparent about their studies and said a full accounting was needed for why the WIV altered and removed their records about the bat coronavirus and other viruses. The State Department also observes that the WIV has conducted “secret projects with China’s military” and...

    While more than 23.5 million people in the U.S. have been infected with COVID-19 and over 392,000 of them have died, a variant of the novel coronavirus that's even more contagious has been found in at least 15 states and might lead to a further rise in the number of cases and deaths, according to health officials. “I want to stress that we are deeply concerned that this strain is more transmissible and can accelerate outbreaks in the U.S. in the coming weeks,” The New York Times quoted Dr. Jay Butler, deputy director for infectious diseases at the Centers for...

    At least 10 state health departments in the United States have detected the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant of COVD-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, according to a new report. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in an update on Jan. 15, said that a “more highly transmissible variant of SARS-CoV-2, B.1.1.7, has been detected in 10 U.S. states.” SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the coronavirus that is believed to have emerged in Wuhan, China, in late 2019. Health officials warned that models have shown the B.1.1.7 strain of the virus has the...

    Pennlive ^ | 15 Januanry A.D. 2021 | David Wenner
    Pennsylvania reported 6,047 new COVID-19 infections on Friday, a hopeful sign the state won’t see a repeat of the December surge that brought twice that number of new infections daily. The state reported 215 deaths — a relatively high figure but, since people usually die weeks after being infected, one that’s likely a delayed result of the earlier surge. As of Friday morning, 4,848 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, another downward trend and well below the December peak when more than 6,300 were hospitalized. Still, state health officials this week continued to stress the need to wear face masks, avoid...

    The Blaze ^ | January 7, 2021 | Daniel Horowitz
    Nearly a year into this virus, it has become clear that, after up to a third of the people in this country already contracted it, according to some estimates, there is nothing we can do to stop it through non-pharmaceutical interventions. Yet, while the government and media continue to push the vaccine (and masks, of course) with religious fervor, they act as if natural infection itself confers little or no immunity. In reality, as with any virus, it likely confers more immunity than a vaccine. A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine by U.K. scientists tracked...

    It's not just humans who have been impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic. Pet cats have tested positive, as has a tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York. On Monday, the San Diego Zoo announced that members of its gorilla troop have COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus. The gorillas reside at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, a 1,800-acre facility that houses rhinos, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes and the endangered gorillas.

    LA Times ^ | 01/14/2021 | LUKE MONEY, RONG-GONG LIN II
    The estimate, based on scientific modeling, means officials believe more than 3 million of L.A. County’s 10 million residents have been infected with the coronavirus, including nearly 13,000 who have died. That’s more than triple the cumulative number of coronavirus cases that have been confirmed by testing. Officials have long believed that testing only captures a certain percentage of those who are infected because many with the virus don’t show symptoms or suffer only mild symptoms. The rising number of those infected has actually slowed the pace of coronavirus transmission, as the virus is increasingly coming into contact with people...
