    President Joe Biden continued to test positive for COVID-19 Tuesday but is feeling "well," according to a memo from Dr. Kevin O'Connor, Biden's physician. "The President continues to feel well, though he is experiencing a bit of a return of a loose cough. He remains fever-free and in good spirits. His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal. His lungs are clear," O'Connor wrote. O'Connor added that Biden "will continue his strict isolation measures" and "will continue to conduct the business of the American people from the Executive Residence." Biden initially tested positive for COVID-19...

    ORINDA, Calif. — They waved signs that read “Defeat the mandates” and “No vaccines.” They chanted “Protect our kids” and “Our kids, our choice.” Almost everyone in the crowd of more than three dozen was a parent. And as they protested on a recent Friday in the Bay Area suburb of Orinda, Calif., they had the same refrain: They were there for their children. Most had never been to a political rally before. But after seeing their children isolated and despondent early in the coronavirus pandemic, they despaired, they said. On Facebook, they found other worried parents who sympathized with...
  • Increased Risk of Serious Blood Clots Up to Six Months After COVID-19

    Research uncovered an increased risk of pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lung) up to six months after covid-19 infection, deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot in the leg) up to three months, and a bleeding event up to two months. The study from Sweden was published by The BMJ. According to the findings, there is also a higher risk of events in patients with underlying conditions (comorbidities), patients with more severe covid-19, and during the first pandemic wave compared with the second and third waves. These results support measures to prevent thrombotic events (thromboprophylaxis), especially for high-risk patients,...

    Bob Jungels of Luxembourg tested positive for the virus the day prior to the start of the race in Copenhagen on July 1. Instead of seeing the positive result and keeping him from racing, a panel of doctors looked at his sample and deemed his viral load was low enough for him to ride. In other words, doctors determined Jungels was not contagious to others. Fast-forward to the ninth stage on July 10, and Jungels is the first to cross the line during the ninth stage. Talk about a novel concept, athletes still being able to compete after a positive...

    While U.S. intelligence has been unable in two years to determine for sure if COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab, Congress has decided it no longer wants to take the risk of funding medical research at labs controlled by Beijing or other American adversaries.With little fanfare and in bipartisan fashion, House appropriators quietly amended the 2023 federal budget for health and science agencies on Thursday to ban any funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which U.S. intelligence fears may have been the origin point for the coronavirus pandemic, and other labs like it."None of the funds made available by...
  • COVID lockdowns had ‘little to no effect’ on mortality rate, study says

    Lockdowns had “little to no effect” on saving lives during the pandemic — and “should be rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy,” according to economists in a new meta-analysis of dozens of studies. A group led by the head of Johns Hopkins Institute for Applied Economics analyzed studies from the first surge of the pandemic to investigate widely pushed claims that stringent restrictions would limit deaths. Instead, the meta-analysis concluded that lockdowns across the US and Europe had only “reduced COVID-19 mortality by 0.2% on average.” Worse, some of the studies even suggested that limiting gatherings in safe...

    A third Chinese city has locked down its residents because of a COVID-19 outbreak, raising the number confined to their homes in China to about 20 million people. The lockdown of Anyang, home to 5.5 million people, was announced late Monday after two cases of the omicron variant were reported. Residents are not allowed to go out and stores have been ordered shut except those selling necessities. Another 13 million people have been locked down in Xi’an for nearly three weeks, and 1.1 million more in Yuzhou for more than a week. It wasn’t clear how long the lockdown of...

    CORONAVIRUS disruptions have continued in China’s Ningbo, where the world’s third-largest container port is striving to maintain operation levels. Truck entry into the port area remains restricted while some container freight stations have halted operations due to roadblocks and other lockdown measures in the city’s Beilun District, home to a string of large box terminals. The latest infection wave, which emerged on January 1, have so far been contained within the district, where 26 local cases were confirmed as of 2000 hrs local time on January 4, the Ningbo government told a press conference today. Most of them are from...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Doctor Patrick Jackson with the University of Virginia has advice for people looking to get vaccinated. Dr. Jackson says COVID-19 vaccines have a very low Myocarditis or heart inflammation risk, however the risk is highest in young men. He says says the Johnson & Johnson vaccine does not have any association with this side effect and could be the best choice for some. “Now that we have more data about these vaccines people can talk to their doctors about which vaccine might be the ideal one for them, or even now that we have some flexibility,...
  • One year of vaccines: Many lives saved, many needlessly lost

    One year ago, the biggest vaccination drive in American history began with a flush of excitement in an otherwise gloomy December. Trucks loaded with freezer-packed vials of a COVID-19 vaccine that had proved wildly successful in clinical trials fanned out across the land, bringing shots that many hoped would spell the end of the crisis. That hasn’t happened. A year later, too many Americans remain unvaccinated and too many are dying. The nation’s COVID-19 death toll stands at around 800,000 as the anniversary of the U.S. vaccine rollout arrives. A year ago it stood at 300,000. An untold number of...
  • Do you know why there isn't an EUA for fluvoxamine? The drug works. Amazingly well. Better than anything else against COVID when given early. So why isn't there an EUA?

    AbstractDoctors today are driven by what the NIH says, not science. The NIH ignores everything that isn't big pharma.Example: The Pfizer 6-month trial showed no all-cause mortality benefit; in fact, if anything, it showed that the vaccine killed more people than it saved. Sure, one COVID life was saved per 22,000 fully vaxed, but the all-cause mortality strongly favored the placebo (21 died in vaccine group vs. 17 in placebo). Doctors rush to recommend it. Nobody is skeptical.Fluvoxamine on the other hand actually demonstrated a 12 times reduction in all-cause mortality in the Phase 3 trial. SNIPWelcome to 2021 where...

    Direct from the Comirnaty package insert... 5.2 Myocarditis and Pericarditis Postmarketing data demonstrate increased risks of myocarditis and pericarditis, particularly within 7 days following the second dose. The observed risk is higher among males under 40 years of age than among females and older males. The observed risk is highest in males 12 through 17 years of age. Although some cases required intensive care support, available data from short-term follow-up suggest that most individuals have had resolution of symptoms with conservative management. Information is not yet available about potential longterm sequelae. The CDC has published considerations related to myocarditis...

    U.S. Army Secretary Christine Wormuth this week warned members of the National Guard that they may be barred from "continued service" if they refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19. “I have determined that all soldiers who refuse the mandatory vaccination order will be flagged,” Wormuth wrote in a memo, according to The New York Times. This action would prevent soldiers from receiving promotions, awards and bonuses. If members persist in declining vaccination without an approved exemption, she added, they will not be allowed to "continue service."...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has quietly acknowledged that far more people have natural immunity than was earlier reported. The CDC quietly acknowledged that a staggering 146.6 million people have been infected by the Sars-CoV-2 virus and have survived it. The CDC updated its May figures in October after declining to update the numbers for five months. The CDC estimates that 124 million of the 146.6 million infections resulted in “symptomatic illnesses,” although it is unclear why only one in four infections sought out medical treatment. The CDC further estimated that there were 7.5 million hospitalizations, although ‘hospitalizations’...

    As the Delta variant became the dominant strain of coronavirus across the United States, all three COVID-19 vaccines available to Americans lost some of their protective power, with vaccine efficacy among a large group of veterans dropping between 35% and 85%, according to a new study. Researchers who scoured the records of nearly 800,000 U.S. veterans found that in early March, just as the Delta variant was gaining a toehold across American communities, the three vaccines were roughly equal in their ability to prevent infections. But over the next six months, that changed dramatically. By the end of September, Moderna’s...

    On Nov. 3, hundreds gathered by New York’s City Hall Park to protest vaccine mandates—federal, state, and local. This came as OSHA released details of the Biden administration’s sweeping vaccine mandate for private companies. NYC firefighter Gary Debiase was part of the large gathering, which later crossed Brooklyn Bridge to Borough Park. “I love this job, but if they’re going to force me to take a shot to stay, then I’m just going to put my paper in and retire. I mean, if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” The protesters were an ethnically diverse group of...

    Houston Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair has apologized for referring to the coronavirus as the “China virus” at a charity event over the summer. McNair reportedly made the comments at the Houston Texans Foundation Charity Golf Classic in May. Bally Sports reported that McNair told the crowd, “I’m sorry that we couldn’t get together last year because of the China Virus.” According to the report, that line earned McNair gasps and looks of shock from the assembled crowd at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston. “My comments at the event last May included an inappropriate choice of words,”...
