  • As India hits a million Covid cases in three days, ASHISH SRIVASTAVA's harrowing first-hand account says: Babies are sick and pregnant women dying. I saw bodies outside a hospital

    No one in India is safe. This infection has seeped so deeply into the community that it is impossible to avoid the virus with its new, seemingly more infectious mutations, spreading through entire families like wildfire. Yesterday, India recorded a record coronavirus death toll for the third day running. Since Wednesday, there have been more than one million infections in what has now been described as the most deadly outbreak in the world. The worst affected areas, including New Delhi, Mumbai and the state of Maharashtra, have run out of hospital beds and oxygen, the lifesaver that Covid sufferers most...

    The man was bitten near the thumb on his left hand while he apparently attempted to pick up the venomous snake with a pair of barbecue tongs in an effort to protect children who were in the area, said John Welsh, an Animal Services spokesperson. Firefighters treated the man on scene before transporting to him a nearby hospital. Officer Mike McGree responded and located the snake coiled near some bushes. Equipped with tongs that reach about 5 feet and a humane storage bucket, he set about trying to trap the reptile. Meanwhile, a crowd had gathered to watch, with some...

    A new mother died Monday night of coronavirus in Hadera's Hillel Yaffe Medical Center, after spending a month hospitalized in serious condition. Her death followed a sudden deterioration in her condition. The baby was delivered several weeks ago, and is doing well.

After a few days, her condition deteriorated, and it was decided to deliver her via Caesarean section. The baby was delivered in good condition and transferred to the NICU for care. Following the operation, the...

    It's clear that China manufactured the Corona virus. I think it was intentional an intentional act, but that's not the point. The point is that every person in every county in the world got the royal screw and now they're talking about new variants which is leading to a never ending BOHICA for everyone. Why isn't the developed world forming an alliance against China to get them to pay up for the damage they've done or bomb the hell out of them so they can't do this again. YES, this is worth going to war over. Why isn't the GOP...

    CHAPEL HILL – An experimental drug created at a subsidiary of Emory University has shown potential to both prevent and treat COVID-19, according to researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill. The drug, known as EIDD-2801, is being developed by Miami-based Ridgeback Biotherapeutics. Ridgeback is partnered with drug giant Merck in the development process. The drug was invented at Drug Innovations at Emory, a not-for-profit biotechnology company wholly owned by Emory University, according to Ridgeback.

    The original article is in German, an English summary is given here: At the beginning of last year, the German Ministry of the Interno worked with several scientists on a strategy to increase fear of corona in order to foster understanding for drastic corona measures. The newspaper Die Welt reports this on the basis of a leaked email exchange. Minister of the Interno Seehofer and the scientists involved have so far not responded. Opposition parties demand clarification. The emails date from March and April 2020, when Germany was in the first lockdown. Seehofer was concerned about easing too quickly...

    American Council on Science and Health ^ | 02/02/21 | Chuck Dinerstein
    Our first two vaccines have greater than 90% efficacy; Novavax reports 89.3%, Johnson and Johnson’s reports 66%. Should we care? What do those numbers mean to you and me when we worry about the protection the vaccine affords us? Quick note, the data has only been provided as a press release; the FDA documents are pending. Novavax is unlike the two current vaccines. It features a COVID-19 spike protein (the portion of the virus attaching to the cell) made by recombinant technology in insect cells. In contrast, the two mRNA vaccines use your cell's manufacturing system to make the spike...

    WASHINGTON, DC- Democrats are trying to sneak through an amnesty proposal for illegal aliens into the coronavirus relief package, according to Breitbart News. Around 100 House Democrats are urging Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to include amnesty for certain subgroups of illegals in the aid package. The Democrats led by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus are pushing for amnesty for at least five million illegal aliens who consider themselves [emphasis added] “essential workers” and who are beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs. The letter states: “As you continue to work on assembling a COVID-19...

    How does an mRNA vaccine work?The technology is likely to be used for a variety of other diseases, so understanding them now is key.The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unusual attention to everything from handwashing to polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests. As we move into the later stages of this pandemic, though, a different scientific concept has dominated the national conversation: vaccines. The study of the human immune system and how vaccines influence it is complex and sometimes counterintuitive, and the deployment of a new method for immunization based on mRNA has made it all the more confusing.The two vaccines that...
