    It’s just the flu, bro. https://www.who.int/news/item/20-01-2021-who-information-notice-for-ivd-users-2020-05 WHO finally issues guidance saying that PCR testing can lead to excessive false positives. - So Biden will apparently pressure Governors and municipal leaders to increase mask mandates. Now is the perfect time for GOP governors to drop all mandates. Any GOP Governor who buddies up to Biden and goes along with his dumb Coronavirus ideas is finished.

    California is "starting to see the decline" in new cases of COVID-19 and hospitalizations have stabilized and are "declining somewhat," the state's top health official said on Tuesday. California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly said during a video conference that the current number of hospitalizations, 20, 263, is down 8.5% over the past two weeks. Admissions at hospital intensive care units are down 2.8% over the past week, he said. COVID-19 test positivity rates, another key indicator tracked by health officials, have come down to 11.6% for the past two weeks from 12.7% earlier in January.
  • China Shuts Down at Least 11 Regions Over Coronavirus Explosion: Officials

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is fighting a nationwide COVID-19 outbreak and has shut down at least 10 regions as of Monday—coming about two weeks after a New Year’s Eve party in Wuhan, which some experts pointed out was merely a propaganda exercise to promote the CCP as other countries grapple with the virus.The CCP-backed Global Times newspaper proclaimed that the party in Wuhan was a sign of things to come and the West “should get used to it.” The regime effectively stopped reporting its true CCP virus figures early last year after the virus emerged in Wuhan in 2019,...

    As COVID-19 mutates, it's becoming more contagious than the virus that invaded the U.S. about a year ago. A trip to the grocery with a mask on, which used to be low risk, is becoming riskier. As cases and deaths increase rapidly, people are scared and upset. They're spending hours on websites and hotlines struggling unsuccessfully to get vaccine appointments. President-elect Joe Biden's vaccine distribution plan, which he announced Friday, doesn't offer them much hope. Biden said he'll open 100 federal vaccine sites in school gyms, community centers and stadiums the first month. That's for the entire nation. We're in...

    It’s just the flu, bro. https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/19/politics/transition-coronavirus-trump/index.html Article above says Biden transition team finds culture of Coronavirus denial in Trump administration. This is not good that Biden also does not belong to the culture of Coronavirus denial. Flubros are Coronavirus deniers, which these Dems define as anyone who doesn’t always wear a mask and social distance. Democrats are typically hypocrites so it will be unfortunate if the Biden administration actually continues to appear to be people who don’t deny Coronavirus. It is also unfortunate that Biden picked that hideous beast of a man/woman from Pennsylvania to be one of the leaders...

    When the number of COVID-19 cases began to rise again in Manaus, Brazil, in December 2020, Nuno Faria was stunned. The virologist at Imperial College London and associate professor at the University of Oxford had just co-authored a paper in Science estimating that three-quarters of the city’s inhabitants had already been infected with SARS-CoV-2, the pandemic coronavirus—more than enough, it seemed, for herd immunity to develop. The virus should be done with Manaus. Yet hospitals were filling up again. “It was hard to reconcile these two things,” Faria says. He started to hunt for samples he could sequence to find...

    Former Florida data scientist Rebekah Jones was arrested on a charge that she hacked into the state’s emergency response system — and later learned she tested positive for COVID-19. Jones — who said she was fired from the state’s Department of Health in May for refusing to alter coronavirus data — turned herself in late Sunday, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Her attorney, Steve Dobson, said Jones, 31, was tested for COVID-19 after being booked into the Leon County Detention Facility, and learned she was positive on Monday.

    As the media hail president-elect Joe Biden’s appointment of the first-ever trans cabinet official, few note how she presided over a massive Covid-19 death toll in care homes in her prior post as Pennsylvania’s health secretary. Biden announced on Tuesday that he will appoint Dr. Rachel Levine as assistant health secretary in his administration, setting her up to become the first openly transgender official confirmed by the Senate. Levine has served in her post as Pennsylvania health secretary since 2018 and, before that, was the state’s assistant health secretary for a year. She had previously spent two years as physician...

    Early in the pandemic, “trust the science!” could actually be used in a debate without attracting derisive laughter. But as the flip-flops, mistakes and, yes, lies have accumulated, a consensus seems to be forming that the health care authorities are no more trustworthy than the people running Congress or the Fed.For proof, let’s start with vitamin D, which sure seems to lessen the severity of coronavirus infections. As the chart below illustrates (couldn’t find the source, but google “covid vitamin D” and you’ll find lots of studies that track with this data), people with higher levels of vitamin D in...

    THINK ABOUT IT! Questions to Government we all should be asking.... If I get vaccinated: 1. Can I stop wearing the mask? - No 2. Can they reopen restaurants etc. and everyone work normally? - No 3. Will I be resistant to covid? - Maybe, but we don't know exactly, it probably won't stop you getting it 4. At least I won't be contagious to others anymore? - No, you can still pass it on, possibly, nobody knows. 5. If we vaccinate all children, will school resume normally? - No 6. If I am vaccinated, can I stop social distancing?...

    It’s just the flu, bro. 2ndAmendment (might have the spelling wrong) is somewhat of a fearbro but he is not a troll and tries to support his arguments with data. Yesterday in the Flubro thread he commented that deaths have gone up in the US. https://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3926391/posts I contend, however, that demographics accounts for a good percentage of the increase in deaths in the US over previous years. We are getting older and for the next 15 years or more we will see an increase in deaths year over year. A large percentage of the deaths are due to the lockdown...

    A simple treatment for COVID-19 could be cheaper than 20 bucks — and familiar to most grade school nurses. Head lice drug ivermectin is being explored as a potential treatment for the coronavirus following a promising new study that showed an 80% reduction in hospitalized COVID-19 patient deaths.Just 8 out of 573 patients who received ivermectin passed away, compared to the 44 individuals out of 510 who died after being given a placebo.An earlier study of the antiparasitic prescription drug, which costs between $17 and $43 for a course of treatment, according to GoodRx, revealed promising results in April —...

    Thousands of US flags have been placed at the National Mall in honor of the nearly 200,000 Americans who were not able to be present for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. The display, which is called the 'Field of Flags,' is comprised of 191,500 US flags and 56 pillars of light. Images taken on Monday showed the flags carefully placed in rows near the US Capitol. The flags are representative of the Americans who cannot travel to Washington, DC, to attend the inauguration in person due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    California’s top epidemiologist told healthcare providers on Sunday to stop using a batch of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine after a “higher than usual” number of people had apparent allergic reactions at a San Diego vaccination clinic.Dr. Erica Pan, the state epidemiologist, said Sunday that “out of an extreme abundance of caution,” providers should stop using the doses until federal, state and company officials finish an investigation.California has received about 330,000 doses from the Moderna lot in question — about 10% of all the vaccine, both Moderna’s and Pfizer’s, that have been distributed across the Golden State, officials said.The apparent allergic reactions...

    A year after it emerged, COVID-19 has now claimed more than 2 million lives worldwide. Experts have said for much of the last year that the only way to escape the coronavirus‘ grasp is through widespread vaccination. Weapons to win that war have been and continue to be approved by individual countries’ drug regulators in record time.Dr. Fauci told CBS News in November that the bottom line is simple: “We need to get as many people as possible vaccinated.”But is the vaccine safe? And is it okay in for Americans to question the wisdom of the all powerful Oz Dr....
  • China was the only major economy to grow in 2020 – with its 2.3% increase BEATING predictions – as the rest of the world was ravaged by Covid-19

    China's economy grew by 2.3 per cent in 2020, official figures revealed today, making it the only major economy to grow at all during the year of the coronavirus. The 2.3 per cent expansion was better than experts had predicted and came after China's economy bounced back from the pandemic by exporting medical equipment and seizing market share from struggling rivals. While much of the world economy is still hampered by resurgent virus outbreaks and resulting strict lockdowns, Beijing claims to have largely brought the virus under control within its own borders following the initial outbreak in Wuhan a year...
