    The White House President Geroge W. Bush ^ | June 19, 2008 | Office of the Press Secretary
    Three decades ago, a mysterious and terrifying plague began to take the lives of people across the world. Before this malady even had a name, it had a fierce opponent in Dr. Anthony Fauci. As the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for more than 23 years, Tony Fauci has led the fight against HIV and AIDS. He was also a leading architect and champion of the Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, which over the past five years has reached millions of people -- preventing HIV infections in infants and easing suffering and bringing dying communities...

    The Telegraph ^ | 9 August 2020 | Anna Mikhailova
    A review will examine reports that officials were "over-exaggerating” the number of deaths from coronavirus. The official Covid-19 daily death toll may never be brought back following an investigation into Public Health England's method of counting it, the Telegraph understands. The conclusions of the review, which was ordered by Matt Hancock after it emerged officials were "over-exaggerating” deaths from the virus, are expected this week. One expected recommendation would be to stop daily reporting altogether and move to a weekly official death toll instead ... a significant proportion of the daily out-of-hospital death toll relates to patients who recovered from...

    Singapore, 16 July 2020 – The T cells, along with antibodies, are an integral part of the human immune response against viral infections due to their ability to directly target and kill infected cells. A Singapore study has uncovered the presence of virus-specific T cell immunity in people who recovered from COVID-19 and SARS, as well as some healthy study subjects who had never been infected by either virus.

    CNBC ^ | 05/12/2020 | Christine Wilkie
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease specialist and a key member of President Donald Trump’s White House coronavirus task force, reportedly plans to publicly warn states Tuesday that prematurely reopening their economies will cause “needless suffering and death.” On Monday night, The New York Times’ Sheryl Gay Stolberg reported that Fauci had sent her an email ahead of his public testimony the following day at a hearing of Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. “The major message that I wish to convey to the Senate HLP committee tomorrow is the danger of trying to open the country...
  • The Misleading Arithmetic of COVID-19 Death Rates

    Cato ^ | 3.2.2020 | Alan Reynolds
    Assuming the number of people who have reportedly died from COVID-19 is reasonably accurate, then the percentage of infected people who die from the disease (the death rate) must surely have been much lower than the 2–3% estimates commonly reported. That is because the number of infected people is much larger than the number tested and reported. The triangle graph, from a February 10 study from Imperial College London, shows that most people infected by COVID-19 are never counted as being infected. That is because, the Imperial College study explains, “the bottom of the pyramid represents the likely largest population...
  • WHO accused of ignoring its own post-SARS guidelines in early days of coronavirus

    The World Health Organization is being accused of ignoring its own guidelines put in place after the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s, which call for the organization to investigate reports of potential new coronavirus cases from the start to prevent any chance of a pandemic. Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, who have been vocal critics of the WHO's handling for weeks, say that the Chinese Communist Party also ignored rules requiring governments to report any information of a new SARS-like virus to the WHO within 24 hours. In 2005 following the SARS outbreak, the WHO had updated...

    NY Post ^ | May 5, 2020 | Amanda Woods
    A new coronavirus mutation discovered by Arizona researchers mirrors a change that occurred as the 2003 SARS virus began to weaken, the researchers announced. Lead study author Dr. Efrem Lim, an assistant professor at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute, and his team use a new technology called next-generation sequencing to rapidly read through all 30,000 chemical letters of the SARS-CoV-2 genome, or genetic code. That technology helps researchers determine how the virus is spreading, mutating and adapting over time. Out of the 382 nasal swab samples the researchers examined from coronavirus patients in the state, a single sample was missing...

    The COVID-19 outbreak has made a lot of things uncertain. Americans don't know the next time they'll see toilet paper in a grocery store, let alone whether or not they'll stay healthy or have a job in a week. But even amid the chaos, Americans don't have to worry about fueling their vehicles or powering their homes. The U.S. energy industry has what it takes to weather a crisis of this magnitude, and has already taken steps to secure the nation's energy supply during the pandemic. Unlike other major industries, the energy sector always prepares for disaster. It has no...

    Hotair ^ | 04/11/2020 | John Sexton
    The coronavirus we’ve all been talking about for weeks has been officially labeled severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The reason for the 2 is that there is already a SARS-CoV-1. Like the current virus, SARS-CoV-1 spread from Chinese horseshoe bats and is believed to have infected a type of cat called a civet at a Chinese wet market in southern China. From there it spread to humans, eventually resulting in over 8,000 casese worldwide and around 800 deaths.The Chinese government’s response to the original SARS outbreak in 2002-2003 was to lie and attempt to cover it up....

    Nitric oxide is emerging as a potential treatment for COVID-19, and doctors around the world are testing it again after it had shown to kill another coronavirus, SARS. "It's a pretty remarkable drug," Massachusetts General Hospital critical-care specialist Dr. Lorenzo Berra, who is leading a trial, told the L.A. Times. "It has a risk profile that is minimal." . . . . Dr. Berra said nitric oxide was also found to kill a coronavirus that leapt from bats to humans, University of Leuven in Belgium researchers found in 2004, according to the report. "The story ended there," Berra told the...

    Sci-news ^ | 2020 March 31 | News staff
    Chemists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have chemically synthesized a new peptide (a short protein fragment) that can bind to part of SARS-CoV-2's spike protein, a key protein responsible for getting the virus into mammalian cells, potentially disarming it. "We have a lead compound that we really want to explore, because it does, in fact, interact with a viral protein in the way that we predicted it to interact, so it has a chance of inhibiting viral entry into a host cell," said senior author Dr. Brad Pentelute, a researcher in the Department of Chemistry at MIT. Coronaviruses,...

    As everyone should know, the world is currently experiencing a global pandemic of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. As of March 17, 2020, 194,873 people have been confirmed to have been infected with 7,869 deaths. The majority of both are in China, with 81,058 confirmed cases, which was where this epidemic originated. There have been more than 3,111 deaths in China from the disease. Currently, Italy is struggling with the disease, with 31,506 confirmed cases and 2,503 deaths. The U.S. has 5,702 confirmed cases and 93 deaths. It may be instructional to look at the last major pandemic,...

    This is a little dated (6 days ago), but it explains this virus like no one has ever offered that I have heard before. I think it becomes imperative that FDA, CDC, and the rest start now providing those infected, with hydroxychloroquine in combination with antibiotics. To hell with studies. Use this now and sort out the studies later. If I had this I would sign whatever waiver they put under my nose. Looks like April 12th is not going to happen, and President Trump said as much. I think it behooves everyone to watch this.

    Washington University researchers will soon begin testing a century-old technique that could help combat COVID-19. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday approved the university’s application to test plasma transfusion: isolating and transfusing antibodies from the blood of patients who have recovered from COVID-19 to those who are at high risk or are already ill from the virus. Researchers first need to collect blood from recovered patients, which could take some time, said Dr. Jeffrey Henderson, a professor at the Washington University School of Medicine. “This can be used on a case-by-case basis if the treating physician feels that...

    SARS, the 1918 flu pandemic, and Ebola have all helped public health officials prepare for major outbreaks. Each major outbreak is different though, and experts have a hard time predicting how they will end. The fallout of each disease largely depends on other circumstances — when we catch it, how contagious and fatal it is, how hygienic people are, and how quickly a vaccine or cure becomes available. With new cases of the new coronavirus disease, COVID-19, growing day by day, it’s natural to compare the new disease to other outbreaks in recent history. There was the 1918 influenza,...
