    Over a quarter of small businesses in New York and New Jersey, areas hit hardest by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, have not reopened this year, according to a report from a Harvard-run database. The database, TrackTheRecovery.org, revealed that 27.8 percent of small businesses in New York have not reopened following the mass shutdowns that occurred in the state this year, as of November 16. Even more businesses remained closed in New Jersey — 31.2 percent.
  • Missouri Doctor Says People Who Don’t Mask Are Like ‘Enemy Combatants’

    Professional discussion of the harms and benefits of masks and mask mandates cannot even happen privately among doctors without vitriol. This kind of atmosphere kills science.My 18-year-old son, who has Down Syndrome, had a dental procedure last week. We were supposed to have it done in March, but due to the cancellation of outpatient procedures, it was postponed until then. His teeth needed major cleaning, and since he has a ton of oral sensory issues, sedation has become necessary. All went well, thankfully. However, that night the dentist called and talked with my husband, who is an urgent care physician,...
  • ‘Highly Speculative’: WHO Official Pushes Back On Chinese State Media Claims COVID-19 Originated In Europe

    THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION’S TOP EMERGENCY EXPERT PUSHED BACK AGAINST CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY CLAIMS THAT COVID-19 ORIGINATED IN EUROPE, CALLING THE THEORY “HIGHLY SPECULATIVE.” The official, Mike Ryan, noted “it’s highly speculative for us to say that the disease did not emerge in China,” during a virtual briefing in Geneva. The remarks came in response to a question about whether or not COVID-19 could have emerged somewhere besides China. “It is clear from a public health perspective that you start your investigations where the human cases first emerged,” he added. The World Health Organization official’s words represent a rejection of...
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci warns of COVID ‘surge within surge’ after Thanksgiving holiday travel; says ‘it’s not too late for all of us to do something’

    Public health officials are bracing for a new round of COVID-19 case spikes as many Americans traveled and held large family gatherings over the Thanksgiving holiday in defiance of mitigation guidance from the government, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, warned that as the nation heads into December, officials expect “we might see a surge superimposed on the surge we are already in.” “I don’t want to frighten people except to say it’s not too late at all for us to do something about this,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Fauci urged...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) opened up on the viral confrontation caught on tape between his maskless dinner party and bystanders, who heckled him for dining out after he moved to retighten coronavirus restrictions and encouraged people to make their Thanksgiving plans “as small as possible.” “There’s no reason we should have to be having a political discussion about whether or not you’re wearing a mask. We were dining outdoors in the middle of our meal,” he said in a Tuesday appearance on CBS This Morning.

    China has resorted to its heavy, top-down approach each time new cases of local transmission are found — shutting down schools and hospitals, locking down residential communities and entire neighborhoods, and testing millions. Tianjin authorities shut down a kindergarten and moved all the teachers, family and students to a centralized quarantine space. They also sealed the residential compound where the five cases were found. A worker for UPS at Pudong airport said one of those who tested positive earlier in the month had visited her office. Since then, her company has asked employees to quarantine themselves in the office and...

    Power-hungry elites seek to destroy Scott Atlas because he and the scientific coalition he represents makes it clear that these public health emperors may have plenty of masks, but no clothes.The evidence continues to accrue that the dominant policies sold to mitigate the COVID-19 outbreak were catastrophically wrong, yet those who pointed this out early on continue to be reputationally crucified by media and Democrat elites. A premiere case in point is White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Scott Atlas, who has been making science-based arguments against locking down healthy people since the earliest months of the pandemic. Because...

    Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.. One thing should be abundantly clear by now, after ten months of this pandemic: our political leaders hate us and they think we’re stupid. Nothing else can explain the blatant hypocrisy we’ve seen, mostly from Democrat governors and mayors who are eager to impose harsh lockdowns and strict rules for the public at large but then turn around and do whatever they please with their own families, friends, and cronies. Examples abound, but this week brought a fresh spectacle of hypocrisy in the form of a nervous, patently disingenuous apology from California Gov. Gavin Newsom,...

    Gov. Tom Wolf will meet with the governors of New York, New Jersey and other northeastern states this weekend to discuss possibly coordinating new restrictions to help curb COVID-19 spread as as a second wave of the coronavirus grips the region. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the “emergency summit” on Friday. Gov. Phil Murphy’s office confirmed the meeting to NJ Advance Media, saying the discussion will be held virtually. “Governor Murphy looks forward to continuing our work with our regional partners to address the public health crisis,” spokesman Mahen Gunaratna said. The summit will also include the governors of...

    Her Activities Are ‘Essential’ Through her chief of staff, Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed her trip to a political rally constituted ‘essential travel,’ which therefore exempted her and her staff from her own quarantine order. Talk about the D.C. Swamp: Mere days after issuing a revised order regarding quarantines after travel to coronavirus “hot spots,” the mayor of the nation’s capital openly ignored the rules she established.While many will decry Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) for violating the travel restrictions, they shouldn’t feel surprised by her double standards. After all, Bowser and the Washington City Council have compelled D.C. residents with...

    Democrats are bitterly clinging to a myth that if only someone else had been president, the pandemic would have passed over the United States as if by some divine mark of virtue. On Sunday, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes accused the president of perpetuating an “extended mass slaughter” of the American people in his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming that 2020 has been “the deadliest year in American history.” Republican staffers “all worked together on a project that just let our people be led to the slaughter for months and months. Dying alone with no one around. Day after day,” he...

    Pennsylvania reported nearly 16,000 additional cases of COVID-19 over the last week. The rate of positive tests are increasing and hospitalizations are on the rise. The state is in the midst of a fall resurgence, says Dr. Rachel Levine, the Pennsylvania Secretary of Health, but is better prepared to deal with the novel coronavirus than it was in the spring. On Monday, Pfizer announced its vaccine shows positive results, and the company plans to request emergency authorization later this month. Levine says Pennsylvania is already putting infrastructure in place to distribute vaccines when they come available.

    With the Garden State tightening restrictions on indoor dining in response to recent spikes in COVID-19 cases, many are wondering if Philadelphia will be doing the same. The warning bells are being sounded by Pennsylvania’s health officials. “We are now seeing the highest case counts of the COVID-19 pandemic that we have seen since the beginning,” said Pennsylvania Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine. --SNIP-- The protests, celebrations and demonstrations over the election and vote tallying are also a concern.

    The couple whose October nuptials on Long Island turned into a COVID-19 superspreader event — sickening at least 34 and resulting in the venue getting its liquor license yanked — has been identified, according to a report. Cydnie Piscatello and James Rugnetta tied the knot on Oct. 17 at North Fork Country Club in Suffolk County in front of 113 guests — more than double the legal limit for events during the pandemic, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday. Photos from the couple’s big day show the bride dressed in a white gown and groom in a navy tuxedo at the...

    An estimated 1.7 million New Yorkers have had COVID-19 — six times the official count, a study released Tuesday suggests. Researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai also found the coronavirus was circulating through the five boroughs “long before” the first recorded case, the study published in Nature states. “We now know there were many asymptomatic and mild to moderate cases that likely went undetected,” Dr. Emilia Mia Sordillo, an attending physician in infectious diseases at the medical school and a senior author on the paper, said in a news release. Researchers found plasma containing COVID-19 antibodies...

    A series of studies published in the past few weeks have given us more reasons to hope that COVID-19 immunity might last well beyond the lifespan of the first generation of neutralizing antibodies that appear in those patients who beat the illness. The same type of antibodies should show up after vaccines. Early theories said that the novel coronavirus would behave like other cold-inducing human coronaviruses when it comes to immunity and offer protection lasting between 6 months to a year. [S]till better than the 2-3 months of life that some coronavirus antibodies might have. ... Researchers from Public Health...

    One of the truisms in computer work is “garbage in, garbage out.” In plain English, if the numbers you put into a calculation are wrong, nothing else matters. All you’re going to get is garbage that doesn’t mean anything. COVID is no exception. In the middle of the noise about the “COVID-19 Pandemic,” some real scientific questions are left hanging. In fact, there are so many that we’ll have to leave a lot of them for another time. So, before you declare me insane, please look up the articles in the links. If you’re going to throw golf shoes, 12-wide,...
  • Scientist infects himself with Covid-19 TWICE to study antibodies - and says results show that hopes of herd immunity are futile

    A professor who in an experiment infected himself with Covid-19 to become ill with the virus for a second time says hopes for herd immunity are overblown. Dr Alexander Chepurnov, 69, first caught coronavirus on a skiing trip to France in February. After recovering back home in Siberia without requiring hospitalisation, he and his team at the Institute of Clinical and Experimental Medicine in Novosibirsk launched a study into coronavirus antibodies. They studied 'the way antibodies behaved, how strong they were, and how long they stayed in the body' and found they decrease rapidly, he said. He said: 'By the...

    China's economy is leading the charge for a global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, overshadowing the United States which continues to reel from a rising number of COVID-19 cases. The world's second-largest economy grew 4.9 percent between July and September compared to the same quarter last year, according to government data. But economists had expected growth of 5.2 percent. During the first quarter of the year, China's economy shrank by 6.8 percent as the pandemic closed factories and manufacturing plants. It was China's first economic contraction since the recording of quarterly GDP data began in 1992. Yi Gang, China's central...

    As Covid-19 cases continue to jump during the fall surge, Dr. Anthony Fauci says there's little chance of normalcy on the horizon. The US will have a vaccine in the next few months, but there's a chance a "substantial proportion of the people" won't be vaccinated until the second or third quarter of 2021, Fauci said. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases reiterated caution on the nation's outlook. "I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality," Fauci...
