  • Gilead questions WHO study that cast doubts on Remdesivir's COVID-19 benefits

    Reuters via Yahoo News ^ | 10/18/2020 | Deena Beasley and Vishwadha Chander ,
    Gilead Sciences Inc has questioned the findings of a World Health Organization (WHO) study that concluded its COVID-19 drug remdesivir does not help patients who have been admitted to hospital. The American company told Reuters the data appeared inconsistent, the findings were premature and that other studies had validated the drug's benefits. In a blow to one of the few drugs being used to treat people with COVID-19, the WHO said on Thursday its "Solidarity" trial had concluded that remdesivir appeared to have little or no effect on 28-day mortality or length of hospital stays among patients with the respiratory...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Experts said on Saturday they were worried by a leaked report that describes an outbreak of smallpox in the Soviet Union -- one they say may point to the testing of a smallpox biological weapon.Seven people became ill in the 1971 outbreak and three died of what appeared to be the more fatal, and more rare, hemorrhagic form of the infection, said Dr. Alan Zelicoff of the Monterey Institute of International Studies, one of the authors of the report."Someone has successfully disseminated smallpox as an aerosol," Zelicoff said in an interview."It has been talked about and it...

    The antiviral drug remdesivir had no substantial impact on the survival of COVID-19 patients or the length of their hospital stays, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) clinical trial. The results, announced late Thursday, could potentially be a major blow to the efforts of finding a suitable treatment to the disease that has killed more than 217,000 Americans. The WHO Solidarity Trial examined the effects of four coronavirus different drug regimens: remdesivir; hydroxychloroquine; a combination of the anti-HIV drugs lopinavir and ritonavir; as well as interferon. According to WHO, none of the drugs had any noticeable impact on reducing...

    Townhall.com ^ | October 15, 2020 | Victor Davis Hanson
    In the 21st century, hallmark American and international institutions have lost much of their prestige and respect. Politics and biases explain the lack of public confidence in organizations and institutions such as the World Health Organization, the Commission on Presidential Debates, the Nobel Peace Prize, the Pulitzer Prizes and the Academy Awards. The overseers entrusted with preserving these institutions all caved to short-term political pressures. As a result, they have mostly destroyed what they inherited. The World Health Organization's director-general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is the first person without a medical degree to hold that position. Why? No one really knows....

    Dr. Scott Gottlieb appeared on CNBC's "Squawk Box" Monday morning, as he often does, to comment on the coronavirus-related news of the day. And with many still trying to parse the meaning of this weekend's latest WHO reversal in its guidance - though, to be sure, Dr. Gottlieb insisted it wasn't a "flip flop" - the former FDA head, who led Trump's campaign against teen vaping, claimed that lockdowns were never well-suited to combating the virus. "We were in a difficult position back in April and May because we didn't know where the virus was spreading...we ended up implementing...

    Now they tell us! After pushing lockdowns around the world for months, the World Health Organization has reversed course. WHO’s special envoy on COVID-19, David Nabarro, said in a recent interview, “We really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method.

    You would expect that after months of insistence that we, as a COVID-afflicted nation, adhere to the words of medical experts in general and specifically the guidance from the World Health Organization, there would be more than scant coverage of the latest announcement from WHO. Their spokesman, Dr. David Nabarro, has come forward to make a stern announcement to the leaders of the nations across the globe to back away from the practice of locking down our societies. Nabarro was rather direct in telling the politicians to stop using the lockdown method as a means to control the pandemic within...

    The World Health Organization has warned leaders against relying on COVID-19 lockdowns to tackle outbreaks — after previously saying countries should be careful how quickly they re-open. WHO envoy Dr. David Nabarro said that such restrictive measures should only be treated as a last resort, the British magazine The Spectator reported in a video interview. “We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Nabarro said.

    The World Health Organisation has backflipped on its original COVID-19 stance after calling for world leaders to stop locking down their countries and economies. Dr. David Nabarro from the WHO appealed to world leaders yesterday, telling them to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of the coronavirus. He also claimed that the only thing lockdowns achieved was poverty – with no mention of the potential lives saved. “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” he said. “We in the World Health Organisation do not...

    If Democrats win in November, they already vow to destroy one branch of government and transform the U.S. Senate into another House of Representatives, where a simple majority rules and "fickleness and passion" carry the day, to quote James Madison. Predicting a Bolshevik-style victory for the Democrats, Keith Olbermann quit his job at ESPN and made a quiet return this month to political commentary on his YouTube channel. In a classic Olbermann deranged rant, the former MSNBC host breathed fire and brimstone at President Trump and all of his supporters, who Olbermann wants "prosecuted, convicted, and removed" from society. "Trump...

Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted...

    On Friday, World Health Organization (WHO) official Dr. Mike Ryan said the group’s “best guess” estimate is that 10 percent of the world’s population, or 750 million people, have been infected by the COVID-19 virus. Dr. Ryan sees this as a cause for alarm. “The problem is there is more than six billion left. Therein lies our problem.”While we can all agree that the deaths caused by the Chinese virus are terrible, some simple math can put this number into perspective—something the media seems to be missing.Worldwide, the WHO estimates 1,040,000 (rounded) have died from COVID.So, let’s do the math:1.04...

    GENEVA (AP) — The head of emergencies at the World Health Organization said Monday the agency’s “best estimates” indicate roughly 1 in 10 people worldwide may have been infected by the coronavirus — more than 20 times the number of confirmed cases — and warned of a difficult period ahead. Dr. Michael Ryan, speaking to a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board focusing on COVID-19, said the figures vary from urban to rural areas, and between different groups, but that ultimately it means “the vast majority of the world remains at risk.” He said the pandemic would continue...

The Trump administration’s Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) outlined the policy change, citing affiliation with a “Communist Party or any other totalitarian party” is “inconsistent and incompatible with the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance”: “On Oct. 2, USCIS issued policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual...
