    Data was withheld from World Health Organization investigators who travelled to China to research the origins of the coronavirus epidemic, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Tuesday (Mar 30). The United States, the European Union and other Western countries immediately called for China to give "full access" to independent experts to all data about the original outbreak in late 2019. In its final report, written jointly with Chinese scientists, a WHO-led team that spent four weeks in and around Wuhan in January and February said the virus had probably been transmitted from bats to humans through another animal, and...

    Over the last few weeks, all eyes have been on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his nursing home scandal. Cuomo instructed nursing homes to take in COVID-positive patients that were being discharged from the hospital, a move that resulted in more than 10,000 deaths. As it turns out, Cuomo wasn't the only governor to make that kind of call. Reporters in Michigan are suing Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) to obtain data about the Great Lakes State's deaths in nursing homes, something prosecutors say could end in criminal charges. Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee (D) can now be added...

    A new outbreak of COVID-19 has been declared at the Cottonwoods Care Centre in B.C.'s Interior Health region where staff and residents had already received vaccines, the provincial health officer announced Monday. In a live news conference, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said being vaccinated doesn't mean transmission will be stopped and that precautions must remain in place for seniors and care homes. "You can have transmission even when people are fully vaccinated," she said. "The illness seems to be milder and doesn't transmit as much [and we] won't see rapid explosive outbreaks." Two staff members and 10 residents...

    New Jersey’s Monmouth University was forced to cancel in-person classes after an outbreak of 319 confirmed coronavirus cases — mostly from an off-campus “super-spreader” event, the school’s president said. “It appears that this increase in cases among students was tied to an off-campus event hosted two weeks ago,” president Patrick Leahy told students in an update to the two-week shutdown that included athletic events. “An overwhelming majority of the recent cases we have seen can be traced back to this isolated super-spreader event,” he said.

    A day after President Donald Trump left the hospital and urged Americans not to be afraid of COVID-19, the head of the White House’s coronavirus task force avoided directly criticizing or even commenting on the president’s latest actions and comments as she visited a New Jersey university on Tuesday. But during her appearance at Rowan University in Glassboro, Dr. Deborah Birx did urge students — and Americans in general — to keep making sacrifices and changing behaviors to help protect against new surges in the fall.

    Millions of Chinese citizens could be forced back under lockdown, as discrepancies in data reporting and surging COVID-19 cases in northeastern China show a second-wave outbreak of the CCP virus is now occurring. Already, the Chinese regime has declared “wartime” status in at least two cities—including the capital city of Beijing, where authorities recently reported dozens of fever patients, whom they insisted were diagnosed with a bacterial infection and not the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus. Authorities in northeastern China have quarantined around 8,000 people after they were exposed to confirmed patients. Six local...
