Covid-19 (WuFlu) News

  • I hope CV did not catch up with 7 of 20. He hasn’t been here for about a month.

    I've thought the same. Being a doc, he's more exposed.

    Speaking of exposure, I mentioned some months ago that I was in contact with someone who may have had CoVid-19 at the time - my car mechanic Chuck.

    He had just returned from vacation and let's just say he was looking the opposite of refreshed. Two weeks later I came back to the car service department to find out that Chuck was off on sick leave. Fast forward to last week, and I asked Chuck outright if he had CoVid-19 at that time. He said yes! If I was indeed infected from him, the worst I got was a little phlegm in my throat in the morning a few days later.

    Canada has only recently announced it will be buying kits for SARS-2 antibody testing. If an individual wants to get tested of his own initiative, it will cost between $200 and $400. Problem is, perhaps most people who have been infected probably never even got to the antibody response phase, because their T-cell response was adequate. So their blood serum antibody test will show up as negative, as if they never had it.

    Ivermectin Study Reveals Fantastic Results:

    100% of 60 Patients Better in an Average of Just Under 6 Days

    However, Trial Site News also remarks --

    But the complete lack of intellectual interest in the Ivermectin movement, including reputable hospital protocol approved, off-label, controlled observational studies, raises suspicions of a set point of view.


    That TrialSIte News has spoken with several physicians around the world in combination with outcomes from these carefully run observational studies starts to make the team wonder if there isn’t some institutional bias against this particular alternative approach. There appears to be a strange lack of any intellectual curiosity on the part of the “establishment” we refer to as a pharma-government-academia industrial complex or “complex.”


    While intriguing movements such as Ivermectin with growing data points of success are completely ignored, Remdesivir is blindly embraced: although the drug hasn’t really demonstrated success anywhere else (e.g. not for Ebola) and shown only some positive results, they certainly aren’t any better than the apparent Avigan (Favipiravir) results, which have led to approvals targeting COVID-19 in Russia, China and India. Bizarre given the U.S. government injected $138+ million into Favipiravir just eight years ago for the exact scenario that is now unfolding: a global pandemic.


    Rather, the “complex” pushes on with remdesivir to the point that no one seemed to mind when standard protocol was ignored when just weeks before the clinical trial’s conclusion, the primary endpoint was literally changed so that the study could still be relevant. The primary outcome measure established in the remdesivir protocol was chucked last minute to save the faith. That bold and seemingly brazen move raised red flags among most critical thinkers. Perhaps that is how much power is now concentrated in “complex” circles.


    The world of drug development, involving large biopharmaceutical companies, major academic medical centers, and regulators perhaps becomes too cozy. Over the coming months, TrialSite News will certainly look for chinks in the armor of the “complex.”

    As mentionned already ten times:


    The world wide Rotary (FM/J) pharma mafia did already 50 years ago ban Praziquantel, Ivermectin,Vitamin K (=plum/apricot kernels) because all these "drugs" do strongly prevent cancer. This happened exactly at the very same time when the first wide spread used Chemo was brought to market!


    In Germany you have to pay about 150$ for a single dose of a Praziquantel generic (WHO price 1,..,3$) . Only wealthy people can afford this now off label drug! In Switzerland its fully banned! But not so for dogs,cats, cows, horses.... But since ten years the cat/dog version contains addons to prevent alternative human use.....

  • A 44-year-old marathon runner says he now has to sit on a plastic stool in the shower, unable to stand for long after being on a ventilator for a severe case of COVID-19


    In some cases it damages the lungs, pantries, heart, brain


    As I said, this is bound to have an impact on your sex life. I have read that many people may be debilitated for life, unable to climb a flight of stairs. One doctor says their lungs become stiff, like "stale marshmallow." Not being able to climb stairs also means you cannot have vigorous sex.


    If we could circulate a rumor that coronavirus causes impotence, every young person would wear a mask and the bars would be empty.


    The governors of Texas and Georgia, who are certified idiots, have said we are prepared for a second wave because we have enough masks and PPE. That's not being prepared! That is not how to deal with it. When people show up in the hospital you have lost the fight. It is like the retreat from Dunkirk. Wars are not won by evacuations. The governor of Georgia said "you cannot stop a virus." Yes, you can stop a virus. Many countries have done it. New York and Massachusettes have done it. Those governors are condemning old people to death and young people to a lifetime of misery, because they are ignorant fools.


    Also, they do not have enough PPE in many Texas hospitals, according to doctors and nurses.

    Story at-a-glance

    • Erin Olszewski, a nurse turned undercover reporter and whistleblower, reveals the horrific maltreatment of COVID-19 patients at Elmhurst Hospital Center, the public hospital in Queens, New York, that is “the epicenter of the epicenter” of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.
    • Olszewski addresses a number of problems at Elmhurst, including the disproportionate mortality rate among people of color and the controversial rule surrounding Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders
    • Elmhurst does not segregate COVID-positive and COVID-negative patients, thereby ensuring maximum spread of the disease among noninfected patients coming in with other health problems
    • Patients who repeatedly tested negative for COVID-19 were still listed as confirmed positive and placed on mechanical ventilation, thus artificially inflating the case numbers while condemning the patient to death from lung injury
    • Many of the doctors treating these patients are not trained in critical care. One of the “doctors” on the COVID floor is a dentist, and inexperienced medical students are relied upon

    The heavily censored video above, "Perspectives on the Pandemic: Episode Nine," features an interview with Army veteran Erin Olszewski, a nurse turned private citizen journalist who for the past few months has cared for COVID-19 patients in Florida and New York. In this must-see interview, she shares her experiences at the two facilities.

    Elmhurst Hospital Center, a public hospital in Queens, New York, has been "the epicenter of the epicenter" of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. Few areas have been as hard hit as central Queens. The question is why?

    Initially, a shortage of ventilators was blamed for the exaggerated death toll. But it didn't take long before doctors recognized that mechanical ventilation did more harm than good in a majority of cases.

    Olszewski addresses a number of problems at Elmhurst, including the disproportionate mortality rate among people of color, the controversial rule surrounding Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders, lax personal protective equipment (PPE) standards, and the failure to segregate COVID-positive and COVID-negative patients, thereby ensuring maximum spread of the disease among noninfected patients coming in with other health problems.

    Olszewski accepted a temporary transfer from Florida to New York and spent nearly four weeks at Elmhurst. What she witnessed spurred her to become an undercover reporter and whistleblower. She secretly recorded happenings in the hospital and posted warnings on social media. The standard of care at Elmhurst is so poor, Olszewski compares it to "a third-world country hospital."

  • Olszewski addresses a number of problems at Elmhurst, including the disproportionate mortality rate among people of color and the controversial rule surrounding Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders

    Similar problems were reported elsewhere by the mass media, especially when the pandemic began and things were chaotic. I think such problems have been largely corrected. Not all of them, in all hospitals.


    Patients who repeatedly tested negative for COVID-19 were still listed as confirmed positive and placed on mechanical ventilation, thus artificially inflating the case numbers


    I doubt this was done to inflate case numbers. I read that it happened because the tests were not reliable at first. There were false negatives. The doctors concluded these patients were suffering from coronavirus even though the test came back negative. I think we should trust the doctors on this. They know pneumonia when they see it. I had pneumonia once, and it was 100% obvious to me and my wife even though I never had it. It is possible some of these patients had pneumonia for other reasons; the disease is common. Of course they should not have been placed in the same ward as patients with coronavirus!

  • I strongly agree with this article. The "counterintuitive trick" described here is interesting.


    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/0…ublicans-coronavirus.html

    We Know How to Beat the Virus. This Is How Republicans Can Do It.

    The Senate can take a page from the market economies around the world that managed to fight the pandemic and safely restore normalcy.


    The coronavirus is still raging, particularly in states like Texas, Arizona and Florida. We already know what it takes to beat it. We just need to do it.

    As infection rates rapidly rise in many red states, Senate Republicans can and should legislate to protect their constituents and their country. It’s good politics to save lives while saving the economy. They can start by taking a page from other advanced market economies that managed to turn the corner on the pandemic and safely restore normalcy. In addition to mask-wearing, these countries have all adopted a strategy to test, trace and isolate the virus out of circulation.


    Taiwan was the first country to use it effectively. Applying lessons gleaned from SARS, which emerged in Asia in 2002, Taiwan immediately traced (and closely studied) its first 100 cases. It was able to avoid community spread altogether — topping out at 447 total cases — without a lockdown. South Korea was slower, but eventually suppressed its outbreak to fewer than 13,000 cases without a widespread lockdown. Germany, Australia and New Zealand have all adopted the same strategy to avoid reinstating their lockdowns. By detecting and containing new outbreaks before they spread, these market economies plan to stay open, resilient and competitive, while America’s economy loses ground amid new waves of infection. . . .



    . . . The proven strategy for virus suppression relies on contact tracing through communities. The bulk of testing is initially aimed at symptomatic individuals in health care settings and likely hot spots, with additional testing in “critical contexts” like nursing homes, prisons and meatpacking plants susceptible to disease spread. All contacts of any positive case are traced until the chain of transmission yields zero positives. In a successful suppression surge, contact tracing turns up the vast majority of positive cases. . . .



    The U.S. strategy should start by breaking states down into colored zones, representing levels of outbreak: green is the safest, followed by yellow, orange and red. The counterintuitive trick is to focus on lower-incidence yellow and orange zones before higher-incidence red zones, because lower-incidence zones require less testing and tracing to stop community spread and can stay open with safety precautions during a surge. . . .


    . . . The Senate should seize the opportunity to fund suppression now, while it’s still cheap. Consider Arizona. As cases grew nearly tenfold between May 1 and June 25 (to 3,056 from 314), so have the costs for suppression. “Had we implemented a strategy of suppression in May,” said Dr. Thomas Tsai of the Harvard Global Health Institute, “it would have cost roughly 7,850 daily tests and 1,500 contact tracers to achieve suppression. Today, it will cost roughly 76,400 daily tests and 15,280 contact tracers, among countless lives.” . . .

  • Study Shows That Diets Rich in Citrus Fruits Containing Hesperidin


    Its midwinter in Sydney and the oranges are ripening on the tree out back

    Its time to make some marmalade..100g peel =1gm hesperidin?

    No hydrodynamic cavitation available but

    a cleaver, extra pectin, stevia and a stove should suffice..(Scotch optional)

    in Italy they may need to wait 6 months.

    "

    Herein we urge the uptake of
    hydrodynamic cavitation industrial-scale reactors based on the
    low cost, reliable Venturi tube for the extraction of citrus pectin
    rich in hesperidin (and in other bioflavonoids including naringin
    by very fast processing of waste orange peel or waste lemon
    peel in water only.
    A device able to process up to 500 kg of
    waste peels per session, similar to the one lately deployed in
    Italy for hydrodynamic cavitation-assisted brewing, is capable to
    provide 36,000 doses of 1000 mg hesperidin per day
    .

  • Terror groups aiming to deploy 'coronavirus spreaders' for new Jihad attacks


    That's hilarious. That has to be the wackiest method of attacking ever. How would the terrorist know he is sick? What's he going to do, go up to people and cough on them? Maybe lick them? Kiss them? Kissing would be out of character for these characters.

  • These results is in line with what we expected. Very good news. maybe twise as many is immune tgen with antibodies.

    Already 30% are immune (Sweden) due to contact with the virus. Thus the virus spread is at least 10x wider than expected from classic models.


    As we expected the real R-factor is not 1-5 its 50-100! But most are immune! Good news for USA. But 200'000 additional US deaths due to mistreatment will be very likely:


    Mistreatment = Not using early HCQ,AZT1/Doxy or Ivermectin Heparin.


    You can also drink at least 0.5 liter fresh orange juice that has a fair Hesperidin content as a first treatment -just to give you one more reasonable alternative.


    Gilead Big pharma mafia news: Remdesivir crap therapy is sold for 2400$ (state) 3600$ private patients (read FAZ). A single dose of Ivermectin (is enough) costs 1-3$ and also prevents your death and not just the death of your bank account...


    But FDA virulently blocks it's use as the health mafiosi do know it would be end of game ! (also for diverse virus induced cancer you might develop in the future..)
