Hydroxychloroquine: All you need to know about the drug that is shaping Indo-US ties
Updated : April 09, 2020 06:30 AM IST

According to government data, India is capable of producing 40 metric tonnes of HCQ every month, that is 20 crore 200 mg tablets.

As an experimental study, ICMR has allowed the use of HCQ as a preventive treatment (prophylaxis) for high risk people.
Few hospitals have halted the use of HCQS, due to reported side effects such as cramps and loss of peripheral vision in patients.

US President Donald Trump has thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for lifting the ban on the export of anti-malaria drug hydroxycholoroquine (HCQ), which is being touted as a game-changer in the world's fight against the deadly coronavirus.

On April 7, Trump had threatened, “US could retaliate if India does not release stocks of hydroxychloroquine.” When the country announced that it was beginning to export the drug, there was a change in US president's stance who tweeted: "Extraordinary times require even closer cooperation between friends. Thank you India and the Indian people for the decision on HCQ. Will not be forgotten! Thank you Prime Minister @NarendraModi for your strong leadership in helping not just India, but humanity, in this fight!"

India, the largest supplier of the drug, had banned its exports in early March. Although it not 100 percent proven that hydroxychloroquine could cure COVID-19, it has generated massive interest after Trump endorsed the drug.

Here's all you need to know about the drug, which reportedly can beat coronavirus.

This Isn’t the Flattened Curve We Were Promised

Cathy O'Neil
BloombergApril 17, 2020



View photos

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- “Flatten the curve” has become the mantra of the global effort to contain the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a powerful and immensely valuable image, helping people understand why their sacrifices are necessary to save lives.

It’s also wrong in a crucial way: The dying won’t be over nearly as soon as it suggests.

Consider the typical charts comparing the “bad” and “flattened” curves of Covid-19 cases. They’re all symmetrical, indicating that once a population has reached the peak, the disease will taper away just as quickly as it grew. Here, for example, are the top image results of a Google search for “flatten the curve:”

If these curves were correct, they would provide a handy formula for figuring out how long the suffering will last. Say a country is at the peak, and it has taken six weeks to get there. A symmetrical curve would indicate that it has just six more weeks to go.

Is this really happening? Let’s look at Italy and Spain, which entered the curve about two weeks ahead of the U.S.(1) They both had uncontrolled outbreaks and turned to lockdowns too late, leading to overburdened hospitals. So they offer a decent indication of what to expect in countries that responded similarly.

Those are not symmetric curves. They go up fast, flatten out and then descend slowly. How slowly? It’s still hard to tell, but the shape strongly suggests that the bad news won’t go away nearly as quickly as it arrived.

Now consider the U.S.:

There’s some weekend noise in the daily data, but the seven-day average of deaths clearly indicates that the country has yet to reach the peak. New York State looks a bit farther along, but has yet to reach the other side:

This is important. There’s no U.S. data yet on what the right side of the curve will look like, but the best available evidence from other countries suggests that the descent will be slow. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has said “the worst is over” and “we’ve reached the peak.” He should have followed with “now comes the long wait.”

This shouldn’t be surprising. All our efforts to stay inside and separated –- except for essential activities such as shopping, and except for those who must work –- serve only to slow the spread, not stop it. If you’re hoping for the somewhat symmetrical China curve, forget it. We’re not quarantining people at gunpoint. It’s like someone took the worst-case-scenario curve and pushed it forward in time, without making the area under the curve smaller.

Here’s an analogy. Imagine a plow spreading out a big pile of snow in the street. If it keeps the blade higher, the pile will be taller and won’t spread out very far. If it lowers the blade to a few inches off the ground, the snow will be more manageable but also spread out much farther. The better it does the job – the thinner it spreads the snow -- the longer it will take.

If people stick with measures to contain the virus, death rates will eventually trickle down to zero, but only after a lot more people have been infected, assuming they are then immune. If we’re lucky, we’ll slow things down enough to never truly overwhelm the hospitals, and if we’re really lucky we’ll slow things down long enough to benefit from a vaccine or a treatment.

But short of a miracle, expect the flattened curve to be very lopsided: a quick rise at the beginning, and a slow steady flow of bad news for many months. There’s no symmetry in sight.

(Corrects share of population likely to get infected in 12th paragraph of article published April 16.)

(1) I recently wrote an article about flaws in the Covid-19 numbers. So you might wonder why I'm using themhere. I'm assuming that although the data are probably biased, they're biased in a more or less consistent way. So they're OK for capturing trends.

White House says G-7 leaders agreed to ‘thorough review’ of WHO
by Caitlin Yilek
| April 16, 2020 01:44 PM


Allies of the United States are reconsidering their monetary support of the World Health Organization amid its handling of the coronavirus crisis, according to the White House.

President Trump spoke with G-7 leaders via videoconference on Thursday about the organization’s coronavirus response.

“Much of the conversation centered on the lack of transparency and chronic mismanagement of the pandemic by the WHO. The leaders called for a thorough review and reform process,” the White House said in a statement.

Trump announced earlier this week he was halting funding to the organization while the U.S. reviews the international body’s management of the pandemic. The U.S. is the largest annual contributor to the WHO.

The president accused the organization of failing to report the truth about the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, hiding evidence of human-to-human transmission, and “being very China-centric.”

"The reality is that the WHO failed to adequately obtain, vet, and share information in a timely and transparent fashion," he said.

WHO Health Emergencies Programme Executive Director Michael Ryan defended the organization’s response to the virus, saying “in the first weeks of January, WHO was very, very clear” about the danger posed by the coronavirus. However, on Jan. 14, the WHO tweeted out a Chinese study claiming the virus could not be passed between humans.

Coronavirus Outbreak May Have Started as Early as September, Scientists Say

The coronavirus outbreak could have started as early as mid-September, and the Chinese city of Wuhan may not be where it began, a scientist looking at the origins of the disease has said.

Geneticist Peter Forster, from the U.K.'s University of Cambridge, is leading a research project to understand the historical processes that led to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ultimately, they hope to identify the first person who got the virus and served as the source for the initial outbreak. By analyzing networks, they have so far been able to chart.

COVID-19 Lethality Not Much Different Than Flu, Says New Study
Possible really good news from a population screening antibody test study in Santa Clara County, California
RONALD BAILEY | 4.17.2020 4:40 PM

Between 48,000 and 81,000 residents of Santa Clara County, California are likely to have already been infected by the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, suggests a new study by researchers associated with Stanford University Medical School. The researchers tested a sample of 3,330 residents of the county using blood tests to detect antibodies to determine whether or not they had been exposed to the coronavirus. If the researchers' calculations are correct, that's really good news. Why? Because that data will help public health officials to get a better handle on just how lethal the coronavirus is, and if researchers are right it's a lot less lethal than many have feared it to be.

Currently, the U.S. case fatality rate, that is, the percent of people with confirmed diagnoses of COVID-19 who die, is running at 5.2 percent. But epidemiologists have known that a significant proportion of people who are infected are going undetected by the medical system because either they don't feel sick enough to seek help or are asymptomatic. For example, recent research in Iceland suggests that about 50 percent of people infected with the virus have no symptoms.
In the new study, the researchers sought residents through Facebook to whom they could administer the antibody tests. The results were an unadjusted prevalence of coronavirus antibodies of 1.5 percent. After making various statistical and demographic adjustments, researchers calculated the likely prevalence ranged from 2.49 to 4.16 percent. At the time that these tests were administered, there were about 1,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 32* deaths from the disease in Santa Clara County. The upshot is that "these prevalence estimates represent a range between 48,000 and 81,000 people infected in Santa Clara County by early April, 50- 85-fold more than the number of confirmed cases."

Using these data, the researchers calculated the infection fatality rate, that is, the percent of people infected with the disease who die: "A hundred deaths out of 48,000-81,000 infections corresponds to an infection fatality rate of 0.12-0.2%," they report.* That's about the same infection fatality rate the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates for seasonal influenza.
The researchers conclude:

While our study was limited to Santa Clara County, it demonstrates the feasibility of seroprevalence surveys of population samples now, and in the future, to inform our understanding of this pandemic's progression, project estimates of community vulnerability, and monitor infection fatality rates in different populations over time. It is also an important tool for reducing uncertainty about the state of the epidemic, which may have important public benefits.​
Assuming that their findings are happily confirmed, among the important public benefits would be a quicker end to the pandemic lockdown we are all experiencing. It's high time the CDC gets it act together and conducts similar antibody population screening to determine the prevalence of the disease across the nation.

*UPDATE: One caveat is that a rough calculation applying the Santa Clara infection fatality rate to New York City's 11,000 COVID-19 deaths would imply that essentially all of city's residents have already been infected with the coronavirus. This seems implausible.

*CORRECTION: I inadvertently used the projected number of 100 deaths from the study instead of the actual figure of 32 deaths on April 2, 2020. I regret the error.

One thing to notice is WHO and who came out in favor of vaccines for the whole world.

Your papers please?

They exposed themselves badly and now everyone knows it! Everyone knows they've been working in the background planning for just this kind of event to pull-out-all-the-stops that they've been planning for, for decades.

Michigan Führer Whitmer Endeared Herself to Voters Again; Explains Why She May Have to Extend Stay-at-Home Orders
Posted at 10:30 am on April 17, 2020 by Elizabeth Vaughn

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer discussed the protests which took place this week outside the Michigan Capitol Building with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow last night. I suppose we should no longer be surprised at anything this woman says after the steady stream of random reports we’ve been hearing.

Hoping Joe Biden might choose her as a running mate, Whitmer has tried to raise her national profile. She first showed up on the radar after she accused the Trump Administration of blocking delivery of badly needed medical supplies to her state. This led to a public spat with President Trump. When it was determined that she had failed to file the proper paperwork, she was forced to walk her story back. No problem. Chuck Todd totally understood.

Next, in an effort to ingratiate herself to Democrats, she hopped aboard the #NeverHydroxychloroquine train. Her administration sent a letter to all physicians and pharmacists in the state warning of “professional consequences” if they prescribe or dispense hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine to treat coronavirus patients. Following a backlash from her constituents, she requested a supply of the drug from the government.

On Wednesday, the Michigan Conservative Coalition held a protest against Whitmer’s extension of the stay-at-home order through May 1, which is something that many governors across the country have done.

Unlike other governors, however, Whitmer’s order came with many unnecessary rules attached, hence the protest. For example, she had banned travel between residences. She allows exceptions for those taking care of an elderly relative or friend, “a pet, visiting a nursing home or similar facility, attending a funeral with no more than 10 people, or complying with a court order related to child custody.”

If a resident owns a vacation home that is located out of state, they are allowed to travel there. If, however, their vacation home is located within the state of Michigan, they may not. What sense does that possibly make?

No public and private gatherings of any size are allowed.

She also ordered Home Depot and Lowe’s stores to close off certain departments which she considers to be nonessential, such as seeds, plants and shrubs, flooring, and paint. People are forced to remain in their homes, but the Governor won’t allow them to purchase materials to work on projects.

Asked about this during an appearance on “Today,” she said this was not a problem because there was snow on the ground. She said, “So we just had snow. I’ve got snow on the ground in Lancing. We’re expecting 30 inches in the upper peninsula. The fact that we’re cracking down on people traveling between homes or planting, or landscaping or golfing, really for a couple more weeks, isn’t going to meaningfully impact people’s ability to do it because the snow will do that in and of itself.” My colleague Brandon Morse posted about this here.

Violators will be fined up to $1,000 and the changes were due to go into effect on Saturday. So, if anyone had plans to dine with family members on Easter Sunday, they were forced to cancel.

The Governor’s numerous odd orders and statements have begun to pile up and have led many Michiganders to question her judgment. Hence, the protest.

Here is what Whitmer told Rachel Maddow:

I think the thing that I’m concerned most about and that I think my fellow governors are as well is a resurgence. When you see a political rally, that’s what it was yesterday, a political rally like that where people aren’t wearing masks and they’re in close quarters and they are touching one another, you know that’s precisely what makes this kind of a disease drag out and expose more people. People came and converged together in Lansing and then went back out to their homes across the state of Michigan. The odds are very high that they’re spreading COVID-19 along with it. And so, it’s that kind of irresponsible action that puts us in this situation where we might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they are protesting.​
Great answer, Governor. Your constituents will love it!

Why does Gretchen Whitmer have that psychotic eye gaze? At first I thought it was all just to portray her as evil by on faction of the press but then I took a look at some clearly Blue-Leftists web sites and she has even a more wacked out, I'm on drugs, psycho look to a point I think the right wing press was trying to be kind to her.

Are globalists using coronavirus crisis as battering ram to destroy, remake world order?

'The Wuhan virus appears to be an incredible and suspiciously timely gift for the globalists to push through their agenda faster than any of us could have expected.'

Fri Apr 17, 2020 - 6:24 pm

April 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In February of 2017, I was inspired by a Remnant TV video on President Trump’s inauguration speech titled “Here’s why they hate him. I followed up by writing “The surprising real reason for the hate against Donald Trump” that was one of our most viewed articles of 2017. I suggest you read it to better understand the significance of the new video, Covid-19: Globalism’s perfect storm, presented below and my deep concerns about a larger, world-wide agenda that is definitely going on in conjunction with the Wuhan virus pandemic. (Note: I call it the “Wuhan virus” because the general norm has been to use the location from which a pandemic virus came in the name of the virus whereas the corrupt WHO, in response to pressure from Communist China, has insisted we all use the innocuous “covid-19” nomenclature.)

Since its beginning, LifeSite has specialized in presenting readers with a unique big picture of the connections between many issues that threaten life and family. In this article and accompanying video you will be presented with crucial information and questions about the extraordinary developments now taking place.

The theme of the 2017 article was that Donald Trump is hated above all because he was seen as a great threat to globalists’ plans to implement their anti-God, anti-family and anti-life New World Order (NWO) under President Clinton. The article was more accurate than I could have ever imagined.

The globalists have since done everything possible, with the full cooperation of their vicious allies in the fake news mainstream media, to try to convince the public that Trump is an evil, incompetent and corrupt man who has to be removed from the U.S. presidency. They need that to happen in order to carry on plans to permanently change America, destroy the capitalist system and replace it with a new globalist-controlled economy and radically changed world.

Don’t believe me? Watch the video.

Coronavirus: A gift for globalists

The Wuhan virus appears to be an incredible and suspiciously timely gift for the globalists to push through their agenda faster than any of us could have expected. They have even gone so far as to appear to not want a quick solution to the virus by ridiculing and trying to stop promising treatments already saving the lives of many infected patients.

See below the Remnant video that will illustrate what I am trying to convey in this article. It is a hard-hitting, blunt Remnant TV-style video. It compiles astounding video clips and other evidence that should lead you to ask many serious questions. If you don’t watch the video you will be much poorer for it in trying to understanding, as Michael says, “the reckless, irresponsible insanity” and real purpose of the extreme mitigation efforts causing massive fear and economic devastation and the real purpose of the barrage of media attacks on President Trump.

Note that there are some death and infection statistics in the video. They are not meant to be authoritative and are presented only to illustrate the massive confusion about the Wuhan virus infection and death rates. This video was released last Friday, April 10. There has been a sea change since then on the stats. The reported death rates have varied from 8% or more in Italy and even higher in some cities and regions down to a low of .4% in Germany.

Now that testing has become far more accurate and frequent, we are learning, as Michael says in the video, that the numbers do not justify the fear of dying and the extraordinary, rights and economy crushing mitigation efforts put in place in many nations. However, the virus is admittedly still very concerning and not fully understood. Recovery rates are much lower and dangerous for persons with the often-stated underlying health conditions. They need special protections. It also seems infection can cause lifelong damage to heart and lung tissues and perhaps more.

In general, though, the latest statistics indicate that we must stop being so traumatized over the virus which will, likely a lot sooner than many have been warning, fade away into a far less serious threat. Very encouraging new information on the latest infection and death stats on the virus are discussed later in this article.


After his election, President Trump quickly attempted to fulfill all his campaign promises, the most significant being his many pro-life statements and actions and his withdrawal of the United States from the globalist’s central New World Order Paris Climate Accord. That latter action was an incredibly gutsy move with almost all the other G20 nations putting heavy pressure on him to concede.

Although Trump has been more actively pro-life than we ever expected, unfortunately, on abortion defunding, he was blocked time and again, especially by both Democrat and Republican globalists and otherwise corrupt RHINO’s (Republican in name only) in Congress. They had other priorities that prevented him from getting what he promised without sacrificing other, what I presume were more immediate concerns for him, such as saving a dangerously weak U.S. economy and a weak, crumbling U.S. military, both at a time when Communist China was known to be a serious threat to the world.

In 2017, I could not have imagined Pope Francis would have gone as far as he has into pantheism and idolatry, regularly using Masonic phrases such as the “Brotherhood of man” and human fraternity and calling all religions as being willed by God. He has frequently met and consulted with numerous, world-leading anti-life, New World Order globalists in the Vatican.

The segments in the Remnant video of Jeffrey Sachs, globalist guru and close associate of Bill Gates, UN’s Ban Ki Moon and George Soros, with the Vatican’s Archbishop Sorondo strangely chuckling beside him (see longer version of Sach comments), are chilling. They are equal to segments in James Bond or Mission Impossible movies with their power-mad villans seeking to take over the world. Only this is not fiction. Watch to see what I mean starting at 26:22 in the video.

The last straw for me has been the Pope’s recent madman-sounding statements proclaiming that the Wuhan pandemic is a result of nature “having a fit” over man’s harm to the environment and “nature’s response” to environmental damage. Unfortunately, after decades of indoctrination in education institutes and the media, a disturbing number of people, including some of my neighbors, are also saying and genuinely believing that man’s harm to the earth and its climate has caused this virus.

This is how revolutions begin, when the public become sufficiently indoctrinated with irrational ideologies to the point that they can be convinced to accept and praise otherwise insane political, social and economic changes.

In mid-January of this year, I wrote the following agenda items for our first board and staff meetings for 2020. I had a strong sense, from observing many news developments, that 2020 was going to be a year unlike any in our lives and that there was an atmosphere of an impending war of some type. I also sensed that from having lived through the times of the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War and from hearing my parents’ and other relatives’ many stories of their harsh WWII experiences.

2020: The year ahead - Anticipate and be prepared to cover
  1. Global Education Pact in May
  2. US election
  3. All-out push on globalist agenda re: climate change, world governance, extensive new controls on Internet freedom, suppression of religion
  4. Many totally unexpected developments
  5. US Democrats, the UN and media, entertainment and tech giant allies working together to advance New World Order
  6. Vatican increasingly close working relationship with top globalists to blend New World Order secular issues with new international religious syncretism
  7. China, Russia, and the still huge influence of international communist thinking
  8. Rising, more unified Islamism
The deeply concerning Vatican Global compact on Education has been delayed until later in the year because of the virus, but it is still coming. Item number 8 does not yet seem to be happening, but there are still 8 1/2 months left in 2020.

In early January, no one would have expected what we are now enduring from the Wuhan virus. I am certain that there will be even more huge developments this year that we cannot now even imagine.

Why so many failures on testing for the virus?
There have been many complaints over the early grave failures and incompetence of the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over testing for the virus and prohibiting use of drugs that are actually saving lives. In the U.S., doctors are angry over the bureaucratic bungling, death-causing, statistic-distorting restrictions on who can be tested, what tests can be used and when to test for the virus.

We have to ask why this bungling that keeps stalling the U.S. fight against the virus has been allowed to happen. Was it just honest errors or was there more to it? I believe powerful forces are exploiting this pandemic to push through ultimate acceptance of their New World Order that would theoretically follow a convenient economic collapse caused by far higher deaths rates — some fudged through manipulating how Wuhan virus deaths are recorded — than would otherwise have occurred.

We need to ask why we are risking the collapse of the world economy with extreme, never-before-imposed virus mitigation policies and why very influential interests seem to be exploiting the pandemic for other agendas. Why does it seem that the crippling restrictions are being excessively prolonged in some nations and regions?

As many have been writing and saying, “the numbers don’t add up” or make sense. Such huge variances cannot be right. Something must be wrong with the testing, recording and reporting of infections and deaths and with the types of treatments that the infected are receiving in one region or hospital versus another.

Wuhan virus infection and death rates not as fearful as thought
So far, the 2.2 million worldwide infections and 152,328 deaths directly attributed to the Wuhan virus are not even close to that of past pandemics. The CDC has been accused by many of inflating the US figures. The World Health Organization reports that just the common flu has in recent years led to an annual 500 million infections and 650,000 deaths. And yet we have never done anything remotely as drastic as is being imposed on the public now in order to prevent those flu deaths. On top of that, annual flu mortalities do not compare to past pandemics that resulted in far greater death numbers.

The situation in Italy has terrified leaders in many nations who have not yet experienced a Wuhan virus peak. But now we know that what occurred in Italy was more unique to factors there and has not been a typical outcome of this virus infection. Bloomberg news reported that “More than 99% of Italy’s coronavirus fatalities were people who suffered from one or more previous medical conditions, according to a study by the country’s national health authority.”

They also reported: “The average age of those who’ve died from the virus in Italy is 79.5. As of March 17, 17 people under 50 had died from the disease. All of Italy’s victims under 40 have been males with serious existing medical conditions.”

While data released Tuesday point to a slowdown in the increase of cases, with a 12.6% rise, a separate study shows Italy could be underestimating the real number of cases by testing only patients presenting symptoms.

That is, the actual death rate was likely “closer to the global average of 2%.”

An Israeli scientist reported April 14: “We’re already in the final stages of the coronavirus epidemic’ which, he claims, peaks at 6 weeks & ‘disappears’ by week 8 - in all countries, regardless of measures taken.”

This is likely not going to go on as long as some political and other leaders have been very scarily stating and almost wishing.

Two days ago Breitbart reported on a very encouraging Economist article stating:

“If millions of people were infected weeks ago without dying, the virus must be less deadly than official data suggest,” the magazine determined, using graphs to suggest the faster the disease spreads and hits its peak, the fewer people will die.​
The Economist article cited a new study by Justin Silverman and Alex Washburne that used data on influenza-like illness (ili) to show that the coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) is now widespread in America.

Silverman and Washburne found that the coronavirus mortality rate could be as low as 0.1 percent, “similar to that of flu.”

An April 16 Worldometer report on deaths from the Wuhan virus indicated that only 0.9% of deaths from the virus were of persons who had no pre-existing conditions. Therefore, if you do not have any of the 5 pre-existing conditions listed on the report you have a very high possibility of surviving infection by the virus.

Stanford University professor of medicine Dr. Jay Bhattacharya told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" this past Tuesday that he believes the actual death rate from the coronavirus pandemic is "likely orders of magnitude lower than the initial estimates."


"Per case, I don't think it's as deadly as people thought," Bhattacharya told host Tucker Carlson. " ... The World Health Organization put an estimate out that was, I think, initially 3.4 percent. It's very unlikely it is anywhere near that. It's much likely, much closer to the death rate that you see from the flu per case."

Globalists are open about their plans
My strong suspicions were especially confirmed by an April 4 Wall Street Journal article by Henry Kissinger, one of the world’s most influential globalists. In the article Kissinger stated:

“The reality is the world will never be the same after the coronavirus.'” (so he wishes!)​
He added that “the US needs to work quickly to find a cure, pitch in to rebuild the global economy and protect the 'liberal world order’” and that “'failure could set the world on fire'”.

Kissinger wants us all to continue to be very afraid so that we will hopefully now accept the revolutionary and insane globalist policies. If he and his fellow globalist generate sufficient panic they hope we will not resist being lured towards the loss of most of our rights and freedoms through accepting the false solution of their impossible, elitist-controlled utopia.

Joe Biden is another mad globalist who recently proclaimed that the Wuhan virus is “an opportunity to ‘fundamentally change the science relating to global warming”. LifeSite reported April 17 that Biden stated that a Biden presidency would lead to far-reaching changes to the American way of life. “I think we have an opportunity now to significantly change the mindset of the American people,” he said.

Canadian’s must endure their globalist, extreme left, Communist China praising and totalitarian-minded Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who appears to be using the pandemic to advance globalist objectives. On April 9, he stated, in tune with Kissinger, Bill Gates and other globalists:

“We will not be coming back to our former normal situation; we can’t do that until we have developed a vaccine and that could take 12 to 18 months.”​
Trudeau, a strong supporter of the globalist Paris Climate Accord, has already been doing his best since he became Prime Minister to destroy Canada’s formerly healthy capitalist economy. If he continues with his stated objective to keep the nation locked down for that long, the Canadian economy cannot survive and Canadians will be where the One Worlders want us – at the mercy of Communist China and other globalist entities who will offer to supposedly save us.

Trudeau’s national public Health officer, Teresa Tam, has been telling Canadians all the propaganda from Communist China and the World Health Organization about the virus since the pandemic became a known international threat. We learned yesterday from Rebel Media that while Tam has been Canada’s chief health officer, she has also been one of the seven people on the WHO’s oversight committee for health emergencies.

In other words, Canada’s response to the pandemic has been directed by the Chinese Communists who have openly stated that they want to destroy the economies of the West so that they can achieve their goal to dominate the world. They let this virus conveniently infect the world and PM Trudeau is appearing to be most cooperative to ensure that Canada experiences maximum damage via the virus and his other devastating economic policies.

A positive, hopeful note
Ok, that is enough doom and gloom. I realize that has been a lot and I hope no one has run screaming into the night after reading this far.

There is a silver lining to all of this. The globalists are actually desperate and overreaching. That is why they are doing so many extreme things in recent months. They have failed to sufficiently convince the world the planet is dangerously heating up and must accept that all nations need to embrace their revolutionary New World Order, economic system, and governance.

In June of 2018, George Soros the most influential of all the globalists, lamented, “Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong”, especially because of the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency. Globalists are, in fact, not winning. They are getting old and running out of time. They know that if Donald Trump is re-elected, and it very much looks like he will be, they are going to be held to account like no one has ever before held them to account for their criminal lies and manipulations.

Make sure you watch Michael Matt’s comments near the end of his video. He gives strong reason for hope. He says that “This whole New World Order house of cards will all come tumbling down, but we need to open our eyes. Say our prayers and have a Christocentric view of this” in order to fight it.

He continues: “If we get over the fears and start asking questions, we can do damage to these people, to what they are trying to do, to their agenda. We have perhaps 15 days to slow this globalist police state in America” (and elsewhere).

It can be done.

The globalist agenda is built on fear, lies, deception. It is not sustainable. People eventually do catch on and rebel.

We must all resist and bring others along to join in that resistance.

Spiritual warning
Ultimately, this entire issue is not about a virus, China’s Communist Party, a New World Order or elite interests trying to control the world. There is a lot more that I could have written, especially regarding the over one billion abortions that have taken place in the world over the past several decades, the advance of the so-called LGBT agenda and much more.

I firmly believe that the extraordinary and truly frightening, rapid spread of this unusual virus, the imposition of extreme measures to try to contain it and the resulting grave danger it poses to the economic and social health of many nations, is only the first phase of an accounting for the massive turning away from God and his laws of love in most nations of the world. The manner in which we respond to this first trial will, I believe, determine what catastrophes we may face again in the very near future.

That is, the Wuhan virus pandemic is a spiritual warning to a world that has almost totally turned away from God and is acting like the Jews at the bottom of Mount Horeb who built a pagan Golden Calf to worship instead of God who performed many great miracles and saved them from bondage to Pharoah and whom Moses was still encountering on top of the mountain.

We are still in great danger until we dramatically change our ways.

I do not yet see that happening.

Unless there is a major return to our Christian heritage and beliefs, this pandemic will be remembered as only a minor irritant compared to what else the true Lord of the World will permit to bring us back to our senses.

LifeSite’s other writers have very admirably covered many spiritual and moral issues related to the pandemic.

FDA Approves Super Vaccine (6 in 1 Shot) To Launch By 2020


POSTED BY: VAXXTERADMIN2 12/28/2018

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a new 6-1 vaccine that is supposed to prevent against six illnesses. Sanofi, the maker of what is being called Vaxelis, partnered with pharmaceutical giant Merck on the pediatric super-vaccine.

Vaxelis is intended for children 6-months to 4-years in age. Sanofi says the vaccine prevents poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, pertussis, tetanus, diphtheria, and diseases related to haemophilus influenzae type B. All of the illnesses are covered by the CDC’s original immunization recommendation chart. This likely means that Vaxelis will have little issue being pushed as “mandatory” in states which already impose stringent laws.

Both Sanofi and Merck believe that Vaxelis should be ready for distribution by 2020.

The warnings and precautions page details numerous warnings and risk that could possibly be associated with Vaxelis.



The news immediately prompted concern from groups that aim to improve vaccine safety. Many believe that a 6 in 1 shot is too heavy for a small baby. Additionally, when things go wrong, it is difficult to determine what caused the issue.

CDC reviewing ‘stunning’ universal testing results from Boston homeless shelter

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now "actively looking into" results from universal COVID-19 testing at Pine Street Inn homeless shelter.

By: Drew Karedes
Updated: April 15, 2020 - 11:06 PM

BOSTON — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now “actively looking into” results from universal COVID-19 testing at Pine Street Inn homeless shelter.

The broad-scale testing took place at the shelter in Boston’s South End a week and a half ago because of a small cluster of cases there.
Of the 397 people tested, 146 people tested positive. Not a single one had any symptoms.

“It was like a double knockout punch. The number of positives was shocking, but the fact that 100 percent of the positives had no symptoms was equally shocking,” said Dr. Jim O’Connell, president of Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, which provides medical care at the city’s shelters.

O’Connell said that the findings have changed the future of COVID-19 screenings at Boston’s homeless shelters.

“All the screening we were doing before this was based on whether you had a fever above 100.4 and whether you had symptoms,” said O’Connell. “How much of the COVID virus is being passed by people who don’t even know they have it?”

The 146 people who tested positive were immediately moved to two different temporary isolation facilities in Boston. According to O’Connell, only one of those patients needed hospital care, and many continue to show no symptoms.

The Results Are In On The Texas Nursing Home Using Hydroxychloroquine
KAREN TOWNSEND
Posted at 6:01 pm on April 17, 2020



Last week I wrote about a doctor who serves as the medical director of a nursing home in Texas City, Texas testing hydroxychloroquine on a group of elderly patients. The test results are in. It’s good news.

Dr. Robin Armstrong faced one of the largest outbreaks in the Houston area when 83 people tested positive for COVID-19 at the 135-bed facility in Galveston County. At the time, I wrote that he was treating 30 patients with hydroxychloroquine. Apparently those numbers have shifted. Now it is being reported that 39 elderly people gave Armstrong permission to treat them with hydroxychloroquine. Fifty-six residents contracted the virus.

Armstrong wasn’t willing to watch 15% of the nursing home die without doing something. Using President Trump’s line of reasoning – what the hell do you have to lose? – he prescribed the drug. “I thought the risk of seeing 15% of that nursing home die was just not acceptable,” he said of the residents at The Resort at Texas City.

Now that the five-day trial is completed, Dr. Armstrong was interviewed this week about the results. At first, he couched his answer by saying “most” of the patients have done well. “And, you know, and I think that that is suggestive that the medication is helpful,” he said. When the reporter pressed him on “most” patients, he explained. “We’ve got one patient now that kind of goes back and forth,” said Dr. Armstrong, “He’s an older gentleman, but we’re kind of nursing him through the process, but he’s getting better.”

Two patients receiving hydroxychloroquine have had to go to the hospital for unrelated conditions, Armstrong disclosed; a woman had a fall and a man got dehydrated in his room because he was not eating and drinking.​
But for the first time since this treatment began, many of those who have recovered from the virus have been able to go outside and get some fresh air over the last 48 hours, Armstrong said.​
So, except for the one elderly man who is being nursed along, the gamble on hydroxychloroquine certainly looks to have paid off. The drug is routinely used to combat malaria and is used by lupus patients, too. Regular users of the drug are facing concerns over shortages now. It’s not an option for those with lupus, it’s a necessity.

“I’ve been on this medication for about 20 years or so,” said Sandy Dixon, who lives in Euless in Tarrant County.​
Hydroxychloroquine helps her live with lupus, but she says the pills have become harder for her to find since some doctors began using them for coronavirus patients.​
“I understand for them it’s an ‘if’ but for me it’s not an ‘if’ factor. I need the medicine every day to be able to function.”​
Kroger grocery stores have the drug in stock. CVS and Walgreens is limiting it to ensure everyone with a prescription gets it.

When asked if he thought the use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 would be a politically-motivated question if President Trump had not spoken in favor of it, Armstrong admitted it probably wouldn’t even be a topic of conversation. Opponents of Trump objected to his mentioning the drug as a possible treatment. If Trump had not brought it up, it likely would not be a controversial topic. Armstrong is a Republican activist, serves as a surrogate for the Trump campaign, serves on the advisory board of the Black Voices for Trump coalition and is one of Texas’ two Republican National Committee members.

“When this hydroxychloroquine came out, I was a bit skeptical,” he explained, “because I know the World Health Organization actually was not initially including it in their study, because they didn’t think that it was very effective.”​
Dr. Armstrong reminded the reporter that hydroxychloroquine is not a cure for COVID-19. He said in his experience, though, it does reduce the severity of the symptoms.

GOP lawmakers introduce bill to allow Americans to sue China over coronavirus

By Adam Shaw | Fox News

Two Republican lawmakers in the House and Senate, respectively, have introduced legislation that would allow Americans to sue the Chinese government for damages caused by the coronavirus pandemic -- which U.S. officials have blamed on the Chinese.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, in the House and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., in the Senate, would allow Americans to sue the communist country in federal court by amending the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.

“By silencing doctors and journalists who tried to warn the world about the coronavirus, the Chinese Communist Party allowed the virus to spread quickly around the globe. Their decision to cover up the virus led to thousands of needless deaths and untold economic harm. It’s only appropriate that we hold the Chinese government accountable for the damage it has caused,” Cotton said in a statement.

The legislation is modeled after the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, and seeks “to provide a civil action against a foreign state for deliberate concealment or distortion of information with respect to an international public health emergency.”

“There’s an increasing amount of evidence that shows they are culpable,” Crenshaw said on “Fox & Friends" on Saturday. “So what can we do about that? Well, when Americans are wronged. We sue somebody -- so let’s let Americans sue the Chinese Government.”

It comes amid increasing scrutiny about Beijing’s behavior at the beginning of the crisis. Fox News reported Friday that the U.S. is conducting a full-scale investigation into whether the coronavirus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Intelligence operatives are said to be gathering information about the laboratory and the initial outbreak of the virus. There is increasing confidence that the outbreak likely originated in a Wuhan lab, not as a bioweapon -- which officials have ruled out -- but as part of a Chinese effort to show that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than those of the U.S.

Intelligence analysts are piecing together a timeline of what the government knew and “creating an accurate picture of what happened,” the sources said.

Once that investigation is complete -- something that is expected to happen in the near-term -- the findings will be presented to the Trump administration. At that point, White House policymakers and President Trump will use the findings to determine how to hold the country accountable for the pandemic.

Fox News' Bret Baier and Gillian Turner contributed to this report.

Why the Second Wave of the 1918 Spanish Flu Was So Deadly
DAVE ROOS
PhotoQuest/Getty Images

The horrific scale of the 1918 influenza pandemic—known as the "Spanish flu"—is hard to fathom. The virus infected 500 million people worldwide and killed an estimated 20 million to 50 million victims— that’s more than all of the soldiers and civilians killed during World War I combined.

While the global pandemic lasted for two years, the vast majority of deaths were packed into three especially cruel months in the fall of 1918. Historians now believe that the fatal severity of the Spanish flu’s “second wave” was caused by a mutated virus spread by wartime troop movements.

When the Spanish flu first appeared in early March 1918, it had all the hallmarks of a seasonal flu, albeit a highly contagious and virulent strain. One of the first registered cases was Albert Gitchell, a U.S. Army cook at Camp Funston in Kansas, who was hospitalized with a 104-degree fever. The virus spread quickly through the Army installation, home to 54,000 troops. By the end of the month, 1,100 troops had been hospitalized and 38 had died after developing pneumonia.

HISTORY This Week podcast: The Deadliest Pandemic in Modern History

As U.S. troops deployed en masse for the war effort in Europe, they carried the Spanish flu with them. Throughout April and May of 1918, the virus spread like wildfire through England, France, Spain and Italy. An estimated three-quarters of the French military was infected in the spring of 1918 and as many as half of British troops. Luckily, the first wave of the virus wasn’t particularly deadly, with symptoms like high fever and malaise usually lasting only three days, and mortality rates were similar to seasonal flu.

How the Spanish Flu Got Its Name

Interestingly, it was during this time that the Spanish flu earned its misnomer. Spain was neutral during World War I and unlike its European neighbors, it didn’t impose wartime censorship on its press. In France, England and the United States, newspapers weren’t allowed to report on anything that could harm the war effort, including news that a crippling virus was sweeping through troops. Since Spanish journalists were some of the only ones reporting on a widespread flu outbreak in the spring of 1918, the pandemic became known as the “Spanish flu.”

Reported cases of Spanish flu dropped off over the summer of 1918, and there was hope at the beginning of August that the virus had run its course. In retrospect, it was only the calm before the storm. Somewhere in Europe, a mutated strain of the Spanish flu virus had emerged that had the power to kill a perfectly healthy young man or woman within 24 hours of showing the first signs of infection.

In late August 1918, military ships departed the English port city of Plymouth carrying troops unknowingly infected with this new, far deadlier strain of Spanish flu. As these ships arrived in cities like Brest in France, Boston in the United States and Freetown in west Africa, the second wave of the global pandemic began.

“The rapid movement of soldiers around the globe was a major spreader of the disease,” says James Harris, a historian at Ohio State University who studies both infectious disease and World War I. “The entire military industrial complex of moving lots of men and material in crowded conditions was certainly a huge contributing factor in the ways the pandemic spread.”

Virus Killed the Young, Old and In-Between

From September through November of 1918, the death rate from the Spanish flu skyrocketed. In the United States alone, 195,000 Americans died from the Spanish flu in just the month of October. And unlike a normal seasonal flu, which mostly claims victims among the very young and very old, the second wave of the Spanish flu exhibited what’s called a “W curve”—high numbers of deaths among the young and old, but also a huge spike in the middle composed of otherwise healthy 25- to 35-year-olds in the prime of their life.

“That really freaked out the medical establishment, that there was this atypical spike in the middle of the W,” says Harris.

Not only was it shocking that healthy young men and women were dying by the millions worldwide, but it was also how they were dying. Struck with blistering fevers, nasal hemorrhaging and pneumonia, the patients would drown in their own fluid-filled lungs.

Only decades later were scientists able explain the phenomenon now known as “cytokine explosion.” When the human body is being attacked by a virus, the immune system sends messenger proteins called cytokines to promote helpful inflammation. But some strains of the flu, particularly the H1N1 strain responsible for the Spanish flu outbreak, can trigger a dangerous immune overreaction in healthy individuals. In those cases, the body is overloaded with cytokines leading to severe inflammation and the fatal buildup of fluid in the lungs.

British military doctors conducting autopsies on soldiers killed by this second wave of the Spanish flu described the heavy damage to the lungs as akin to the effects of chemical warfare.

Lack of Quarantines Allowed Flu to Spread and Grow

Harris believes that the rapid spread of Spanish flu in the fall of 1918 was at least partially to blame on public health officials unwilling to impose quarantines during wartime. In Britain, for example, a government official named Arthur Newsholme knew full well that a strict civilian lockdown was the best way to fight the spread of the highly contagious disease. But he wouldn’t risk crippling the war effort by keeping munitions factory workers and other civilians home.

According to Harris’s research, Newsholme concluded that “the relentless needs of warfare justified incurring [the] risk of spreading infection” and encouraged Britons to simply “carry on” during the pandemic.

The public health response to the crisis in the United States was further hampered by a severe nursing shortage as thousands of nurses had been deployed to military camps and the front lines. The shortage was worsened by the American Red Cross’s refusal to use trained African American nurses until the worst of the pandemic had already passed.


Medical Science Didn't Have the Tools
But one of the chief reasons that the Spanish flu claimed so many lives in 1918 was that science simply didn’t have the tools to develop a vaccine for the virus. Microscopes couldn’t even see something as incredibly small as a virus until the 1930s. Instead, top medical professionals in 1918 were convinced that the flu was caused by a bacterium nicknamed “Pfeiffer’s bacillus.”

After a global flu outbreak in 1890, a German physician named Richard Pfeiffer found that all of his infected patients carried a particular strain of bacteria he called H. influenzae. When the Spanish flu pandemic hit, scientists were intent on finding a cure for Pfeiffer’s bacillus. Millions of dollars were invested in state-of-the-art labs to develop techniques for testing for and treating H. influenzae, all of it for naught.

“This was a huge distraction for medical science,” says Harris.

By December 1918, the deadly second wave of the Spanish flu had finally passed, but the pandemic was far from over. A third wave erupted in Australia in January 1919 and eventually worked its way back to Europe and the United States. It’s believed that President Woodrow Wilson contracted the Spanish flu during the World War I peace negotiations in Paris in April 1919.

The mortality rate of the third wave was just as high as the second wave, but the end of the war in November 1918 removed the conditions that allowed the disease to spread so far and so quickly. Global deaths from the third wave, while still in the millions, paled in comparison to the apocalyptic losses during the second wave.

49-year-old recovers from coronavirus after 32 days on life support
APRIL 18, 2020 / 2:09 PM / CBS NEWS

Hingham, Massachusetts – Jim Bello, at 49, was a healthy father of three kids with no underlying conditions when he contracted coronavirus. "He was in the best shape going in [to this]," his wife, Kim, told CBS Boston.

Then, on March 7, while on a ski trip before stay-at-home advisories were in place, Jim got sick – first, with a fever. The coronavirus was still a relatively new virus in the United States, and the Bellos thought he didn't have it.

Still, he went to his primary care doctor at South Shore hospital. After a few tests and treatments, he was sent home. Then, according to his wife, he soon woke up and couldn't breathe. He eventually tested positive for COVID-19.

After a trip to the ER, the family made the decision to transition him to Mass General Hospital to be intubated as things got worse.

"Before he went under, he was like, 'What if I don't make it?" And I was like 'You're going make it,'" Kim said.

Jim was put on a ventilator and an ECMO life support machine. Kim trusted the doctors and nurses to treat him for the novel virus, and didn't worry yet. She and the kids weren't able to speak to him or visit him, until things got worse.

About two weeks into his treatment at MGH, Jim took a turn and Kim received a call from the doctor. "I asked the doctor, I said, 'well do you think he's got a chance?'" Kim said she wasn't ready for what came next. "I don't give him a very good chance," the doctor said.

It was the hardest point for Kim emotionally as she tried to be strong for her children. "That's when I lost it," she said. "I just kept thinking, 'There's no way. There's no way he can leave me with three kids.' He's like the best father, best husband, best everything."

Doctors considered more drastic treatment measures, and at one point took Jim off a paralyzing drug to prepare for a procedure. At that point, Kim says he started to show signs of potential recovery. "He literally woke up. And the nurse said squeeze my hand twice and he squeezed her hand twice," Kim said. "They saw how alive he was inside."

With some small setbacks, it was a steady uphill climb from that point.

The day the Bello family had been waiting for finally came: April 15, when Jim was escorted out of the ICU. The beautiful moment was captured by MGH nursing staff. Health care workers lined the halls applauding Jim as he was moved out of the ICU.

"He's realizing that he really is a miracle," Kim said. "It's unbelievable that he made it through."

On April 17, Jim was discharged from Mass General and moved to Spaulding Rehab. He can already walk with a walker and is working on getting better to eventually go home to his family.

The Bello family set up a GoFundMe page to support the front line workers at Mass General as they fight this virus. So far, they've been able to consistently send meals to the nurses and doctors in the ICU as a "thank you" for all they've done. "They're doing more than they were trained to do," Kim said.

49-year-old recovers from coronavirus after 32 days on life support
APRIL 18, 2020 / 2:09 PM / CBS NEWS

Hingham, Massachusetts – Jim Bello, at 49, was a healthy father of three kids with no underlying conditions when he contracted coronavirus. "He was in the best shape going in [to this]," his wife, Kim, told CBS Boston.

Then, on March 7, while on a ski trip before stay-at-home advisories were in place, Jim got sick – first, with a fever. The coronavirus was still a relatively new virus in the United States, and the Bellos thought he didn't have it.

Still, he went to his primary care doctor at South Shore hospital. After a few tests and treatments, he was sent home. Then, according to his wife, he soon woke up and couldn't breathe. He eventually tested positive for COVID-19.

After a trip to the ER, the family made the decision to transition him to Mass General Hospital to be intubated as things got worse.

"Before he went under, he was like, 'What if I don't make it?" And I was like 'You're going make it,'" Kim said.

Most probably a made up or at least grossly exaggerated story. This IS Boston and it IS CBS reporting it.

No, I don't believe any of them!

Even if it IS true, when he gets the hospital bill he's going to wish he died

Time to cut the CDC's "funding" as well...


CDC’s failed coronavirus tests were tainted with coronavirus, feds confirm
A federal investigation found CDC researchers not following protocol.
BETH MOLE - Yesterday at undefined

As the new coronavirus took root across America, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent states tainted test kits in early February that were themselves seeded with the virus, federal officials have confirmed.

The contamination made the tests uninterpretable, and—because testing is crucial for containment efforts—it lost the country invaluable time to get ahead of the advancing pandemic.

The CDC had been vague about what went wrong with the tests, initially only saying that “a problem in the manufacturing of one of the reagents” had led to the failure. Subsequent reporting suggested that the problem was with a negative control—that is, a part of the test meant to be free of any trace of the coronavirus as a critical reference for confirming that the test was working properly overall.

Now, according to investigation results reported by The New York Times, federal officials confirm that sloppy laboratory practices at two of three CDC labs involved in the tests’ creation led to contamination of the tests and their uninterpretable results.

“Just tragic”
Shortly after the problems became apparent in early February, the Food and Drug Administration sent Timothy Stenzel, chief of in vitro diagnostics and radiological health, to the CDC to investigate what was going wrong. According to the Times, he found a lack of coordination and inexperience in commercial manufacturing.

Problems that led to the contamination included researchers coming and going from labs working on the test kits without changing their coats and researchers sharing lab space to both assemble test components and handle samples containing the coronavirus.

The CDC said in a statement Saturday to the Times that the agency “did not manufacture its test consistent with its own protocol.” Though the CDC appeared reluctant to admit contamination was at the root of the problem, the Times noted that in a separate statement the CDC seemed to acknowledge such problems, saying the agency has since “implemented enhanced quality control to address the issue and will be assessing the issue moving forward.”

After the CDC first sent its test kit to states in early February, it took the agency around a month to fix the problem. By then, the virus had invaded many communities unimpeded, and any chance that the US had at containing its spread had virtually vanished. By mid-March, many states turned to mitigation efforts, such as social distancing, to try to blunt—rather than prevent—the life-threatening, healthcare-overwhelming effects of COVID-19.

“It was just tragic,” Scott Becker, executive director of the Association of Public Health Laboratories, told the Times. “All that time when we were sitting there waiting, I really felt like, here we were at one of the most critical junctures in public health history, and the biggest tool in our toolbox was missing.”

As of the morning of April 20, the US has confirmed more than 760,000 cases of COVID-19 and more than 40,700 deaths. The numbers are expected to be underestimates due to the slow and still limited amount of testing.

Trump Axing Obama-era Funding to Wuhan Lab Where Virus Could Have Originated
  • 2020-04-20
  • Source: TTN
  • by: TTN Staff



President Trump has announced that he is ending Obama-era funding of the Wuhan lab where the virus could have likely originated.

According to The Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump said Friday he will end federal funding for the Wuhan Institute of Virology that some are claiming spawned the coronavirus.

At the daily coronavirus task force news conference, the president was asked why the National Institutes of Health would include the Chinese laboratory in a $3.7 million dollar stipend to conduct research.

“The Obama administration gave them a grant of $3.7 million. I’ve been hearing about that. We’ve instructed that if any grants are going to that area, we are looking at it literally about an hour ago and also early in the morning,” Trump said.

“We will end the grant very quickly. It was granted quite a while ago. They were granted a substantial amount of money. We are going to look at it and take a look. But I understand it was a number of years ago. When did you hear the grant was made?”​


Rep. Matt Gaetz

@RepMattGaetz



"The Obama administration gave them a grant of $3.7 million...we will end that grant very quickly."

Thank you President @realDonaldTrump and @SecAzar for committing to end this America Last grant given to labs in Wuhan by the Obama administration!

It remains unclear if any more retaliation will happen after the crisis passes to punish China for its negligence.

Sweden official: Coronavirus strategy of keeping country open seems to be working

By Randy DeSoto, The Western Journal
Published April 21, 2020 at 11:03am

Sweden's top epidemiologist believes his country could reach "herd immunity" for COVID-19 in the population by May.

“According to our modelers [at the Public Health Agency of Sweden], we are starting to see so many immune people in the population in Stockholm that it is starting to have an effect on the spread of the infection,” Dr. Anders Tegnell told recently local reporters, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.

“Our models point to some time in May.”

While Sweden has canceled large sporting and other events, schools, gyms, bars and restaurants have remained open, relying on citizens to do what is necessary to keep themselves safe.

"The government has banned gatherings of 50 people and barred visits to nursing homes. It also banned non-essential travel to Sweden from outside the EU," the Daily Mail reported.

John Burn-Murdoch of the Financial Times noted in a Monday tweet that Stockholm, Sweden's capital city and largest population center (2.4 million in the metro area), has seen a decline in new hospitalizations.
Stockholm:​
• Remember Sweden has not locked down like most places. Social gatherings still common.​
• But data show steady deceleration in new hospitalisations​
• Daily hospital beds occupied now unchanged vs last week, and on course for net week-on-week reduction very soon​

According to Johns Hopkins, Sweden has 14,777 confirmed cases and 1,580 deaths.

Critics have pointed out that Sweden has had a significantly higher death rate -- at 118 per one million people -- than the surrounding Nordic nations of Norway, Finland and Denmark.

"Sweden’s per-million tally is also significantly higher than the 42 recorded in Germany – but remains lower than the [United Kingdom’s] rate of 182 (as of Tuesday) and far below Italy’s 349 and Spain’s 399," The Guardian reported.
Also worth noting that Sweden’s death rate (the yellow line) far exceeds those of its Nordic neighbours. Herd immunity has a cost.​

Statista shows Sweden's death rate per million at approximately 151 versus the United States at 124.

Tegnell is confident that his country made the right call in not going into a lockdown.

"I am very skeptical of lockdowns altogether but if you ever do them, you should do them at an early stage," he said.

"So far, what we are doing is working," Tegnell added. "In a sense we are beating it, and I am confident we are doing the best we can in the circumstances.'

The doctor's assessment of Sweden's less aggressive approach to the coronavirus outbreak comes as state governors weigh when and how to reopen their economies.

At the coronavirus task force news briefing on Monday at the White House, President Donald Trump highlighted that thirty states have one or less cases per 1,000 people.

"Far fewer cases per capita as an example than Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Ireland, Switzerland, Singapore, Belgium, Spain, Norway, the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden," he said.

First American coronavirus deaths took place weeks before initially thought

The first American to die of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus that has become a global pandemic, succumbed weeks earlier than initially believed, officials in California said late Tuesday.

The Santa Clara Medical Examiner-Coroner said autopsies on two people who died in early and mid-February showed they had been infected by the virus. Samples sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tested positive on Tuesday.

Until the new revelations, the first COVID-19 death had been identified as a man in his 50s in Washington state who died Feb. 29.

The two people died at home on Feb. 6 and Feb. 17, making them the earliest-known victims of the coronavirus in the United States, the Santa Clara County public health department confirmed in a statement on Tuesday

The county health department said both individuals "died at home during a time when very limited testing was available only through the CDC."

"Testing criteria set by the CDC at the time restricted testing to only individuals with a known travel history and who sought medical care for specific symptoms," it added. "As the Medical Examiner-Coroner continues to carefully investigate deaths throughout the county, we anticipate additional deaths from COVID-19 will be identified."

The first coronavirus cases were identified in California in early February, but the first case of community spread to someone with no known links to either a previous COVID-19 case or travel to risky places like Wuhan, China, was not identified until Feb. 26, when a resident of Solano County being treated in the Sacramento area tested positive for the virus.

Santa Clara County officials did not identify either of the two individuals who died, whether they had traveled to Wuhan or elsewhere, or whether they had contact with the few people who had been diagnosed with the disease before they died.

But reclassifying their deaths as related to the coronavirus suggests the virus had been spreading through the United States for much longer than was initially thought - potentially for weeks or even months longer.

The first person to test positive for the coronavirus in the U.S., a Washington man in his 30s who had traveled to Wuhan, tested positive on Jan. 22. That patient recovered, but he is thought to have spread the virus to several other people in the state, kicking off the first known outbreak inside the United States.

Investigators will determine whether either of the Santa Clara deaths were connected to the Washington cluster, but it is likely that the virus arrived in different parts of the United States at different times, and from different places.

Genetic data from patients in New York show the virus they contracted likely came from contacts in Italy or other parts of Europe, while the Washington outbreak came from the American who traveled to Wuhan.

Santa Clara, home of Silicon Valley, has extensive air ties to both Asia and Europe, making the spread of the virus all but inevitable.

The new cases also underscore just how far behind American preparations for the coronavirus had fallen by early February. As countries like South Korea, Taiwan and China were ramping up testing operations that would eventually cover a sufficient portion of their population to control the virus, the United States response was hampered by a CDC-created test that did not work and a private sector that did not create its own tests that could operate at scale.

The first person in the United States to die of COVID-19, on Feb. 6, succumbed six days before California public health labs began testing for the coronavirus. At the time, California was sending all its samples to the CDC in Atlanta. The day the first person died, California had identified six cases, including two in Santa Clara County.

Jeffrey Smith, a doctor who serves as county executive for Santa Clara County, said at a briefing earlier this month that the virus could have been "freewheeling" in California for longer "a lot longer than we first believed," the Los Angeles Times reported at the time.

"This wasn't recognized because we were having a severe flu season," Smith continued. "Symptoms are very much like the flu. If you got a mild case of COVID, you didn't really notice."

"You didn't even go to the doctor. The doctor maybe didn't even do it, because they presumed it was the flu," he said.

The COVID-19 scandal: Billionaire Bill Gates and WHO
Exclusive: Hanne Nabintu Herland sounds alarm over oligarch 'pandemic expert'
By Hanne Nabintu Herland
Published April 22, 2020 at 7:09pm

The coronavirus scandal, with billionaire oligarch "pandemic expert" Bill Gates pushing horror scenarios into the media, has contributed to politicians' reaction of fear.

This, combined with mass media hysteria, has, in turn, caused a once-in-a-century financial depression. The economic depression may not be due to the virus itself, but rather the panic reaction that was created with the corresponding government shutdowns, as advised by Gates.
