What do we know about the novel coronavirus?

  • Do we need to start imposing new sanctions considering UK interference?

    One of the world’s most prestigious medical journals - New England Journal of Medicine, has lambasted the Trump administration’s “dangerously incompetent” handling of the pandemic and called for them to be voted out of office, as US coronavirus cases continue to soar.

    In an unprecedented move in its more than two centuries-long history, the New England Journal of Medicine published an editorial in which it said the current leadership had “recklessly squandered lives” and “largely claimed immunity for their actions”.

    May be they just feared that Trump could end "more than two centuries-long history" of journals who make up and publish fake scientific research and kill people telling them that certain medication are horrible and must not be used?

  • @Vitaliy....doesn't have anything to do with liberals, conservatives, from anywhere, even eeuu...a crime has been committed. You want to assign guilt based on metaphors. Or you think wuhan was just a coincidence ?

  • @kurth

    I am not sure about Trump, most probably he won't save anyone.

  • @Vitaliy....but you have to admit that his 'recuperation' was mysterious, at the very least. And promising to give every american his million dollar cure, even more so.

  • @kurth

    Nothing mysterious here. Around 60-70% of people who get it have similar or even more light response.

  • Chancellor Angela Merkel and mayors from Germany’s 11 largest cities have agreed to adopt stricter anti-coronavirus measures if infections exceed a threshold of 50 cases per 100,000 a week.

    Measures could include tighter rules on mask-wearing, as well as restrictions on private gatherings and buying alcohol.

    You won't be even legally drunk in Germany anymore.

  • Capitalists in Mordor

    Private medicine in Mordor fully rejected dealing with coronavirus or even flu patients.

    CT scan equipment in private hospitals are closed (totally, despite it is around 65% total in the country) since April. As clinics do not want any responsibility and do not want to take any part in lungs tests.

    This is why you must never allow such thing as private medicine here.

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev "I am not sure about Trump, most probably he won't save anyone."

    Jesus didn't save himself i think Trump is a very long shot of saving anyone ( neither himself). Of course Biden it's not a option and this is the real problem everywhere no more viable options to choose from... It's metastasis....

  • @Vitaliy....excuse me, but.....are there cases of someone experiencing severe symptoms, being hospitalized and then taking a 1.3 million dollar experimental drug regimen , and walking out of the hospital 2 days later ?.....or...are there 60 0r 70% of cases that just have a light response, but never severe symptoms and get well within one or two weeks on their own ? . You're confusing 2 different concepts.

  • @kurth

    No one independent actually saw severe symptoms in Trump case, if you exclude theatrical tube during transport into hospital.

  • @Vitaliy....so you think his full corp of doctors is lying ? Vitaliy....a point, if I dare. There are no independent observers. Zero.

  • @kurth

    From this "full corp" of doctors only 2-3 actually interacted with Trump. And as far as I understand leading doctor that Trump selected was not professional in this field. So Trump just used doctors to make it all look nice and clean.

    I am not even talking that press events with this doctors had been extremely weird.

  • $1 billion in Pentagon coronavirus aid went to contractors. The major stimulus bill passed in March, the CARES Act, provided $1 billion in funding for the Pentagon to use towards responding to the pandemic. Instead of using the money to procure medical equipment, the majority of the funds went to defense contractors for military equipment.
  • from Michael Moore Oct 5, 2020:

    Awaiting the daily Parade of Quacks outside Walter Reed. Quacks? Yes. A doctor who lies - including lies of omission - is a quack. Trump’s two main doctors — Navy Commander Sean Conley and Colonel Sean Dooley — are military and thus take their orders from the Commander in Chief. He’s stage managing all of this.

    • Still, these doctors have produced:
    • NO medical charts
    • NO medical records
    • NO x-rays or CT scans
    • NO date of when he last tested negative
    • NO proof he has Covid
    • NO proof of anything

    I am not a doctor, but after studying the available information, here’s what is possible: Trump may have contracted COVID-19 a few days before the Rose Garden Supreme Court packing event. He was asymptomatic at the time - and those are the days one is most contagious. He knew he had it before the debate, that’s why he didn’t show up for - and refused - the Covid testing that the Debate Commission required just hours before the debate. The following day, Wednesday, a press pool reporter said Trump fell asleep on the plane. “He NEVER falls asleep when traveling domestically in Air Force One.” Whatever doctor knew he was positive and let him be in contact with others must have his license stripped. The symptoms they’ve admitted to Trump having Thursday night means that he was infected 5 to 7 days before that — and carried it wherever he went. We are being played. We are not being given the truth. Doctors contradicting each other. One stunt after another. It isn’t working. The majority of the country isn’t buying it. Let’s have another Trump Parade around the hospital! This time throw candy out of the SUV window!
  • @jleo

    It is nice to understand how Moore feels and that he already said about Trump.

    So all last paragraph is pure fantasy strangely matching mainstream media.

  • In a video shot outside the White House, Trump credited the Regeneron therapy for his feeling much better than when he was first diagnosed and said he would push for EUAs of that treatment and others like it. He mistakenly said the drug was called Regeneron.

    Regeneron’s drug is a cocktail of two monoclonal antibodies - manufactured copies of antibodies that are one of the main weapons the immune system generates to fight infections.

    The company said on Wednesday that it has submitted a request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for an emergency use authorization (EUA) for its antibody combination.

    The company so far has released some early data pointing to the promise of its therapy for COVID-19, and doctors were concerned Trump’s treatment and subsequent promotion could put pressure on regulators.

    Top U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, speaking on Monday on CNN, said he was “strongly suspicious” that Regeneron’s drug has contributed to Trump’s progress. “Obviously you can’t prove that until you do a number of studies to show that it actually works,” he said.

    Trump always had been good showman. And Fauci be better off with his mouth shut tightly.

  • Doctors in the UK have launched a clinical trial to see whether the cheap and widely available BCG vaccine can boost the immune system enough to prevent healthcare workers from catching coronavirus.

    The Bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) vaccine is given to protect people from tuberculosis, but studies suggest that it stimulates broader immune responses that help the body keep other infections at bay.

    Researchers at Exeter University are enrolling up to 2,000 community healthcare workers, particularly from care homes and GP surgeries, including nurses, caterers and administration staff, for the UK arm of the international Brace trial, which is recruiting 10,000 volunteers worldwide

    It is just little fun, famous fake press during spring just mixed idea that BCG vaccine helps with dirt. Now they go reverse.

  • “They gave me Regeneron, and it was, like, unbelievable. I felt good immediately,” he said in a video recorded at the White House.

    There’s no evidence that the Regeneron drug had anything to do with how good Trump did or did not feel. There’s hardly any data that the drug, which is a cocktail of artificial antibodies against the coronavirus, works at all.

    I think it is getting old, first war with HCQ, now war with another cure.

  • first, when someone who's passed 7 decades with all the trials and tribulations all of our human bodies endure, most of us know if a medicine we've taken is effective or not. Even trump. And the last person on planet earth i'd listen to about health would be michael moore. What a specimen of humanity he's turned out to be. Nobody should allow their physical bodies to deteriorate like that, and then he wants to talk health ? And fauci....the guy isn't a doctor, he's a lobbyist .

  • Regeneron CEO Dr. Leonard Schleifer and President Trump are acquainted: The CEO has been a member at Trump's golf club in Westchester, New York, and his company also received $450 million in government funding in July as part of the president's Operation Warp Speed plan to quickly develop a vaccine and other treatments for Covid-19.

    Meanwhile, Trump also recently owned shares of Regeneron -- as well as Gilead Sciences, maker of the antiviral drug remdesivir that the president is also taking. Both stocks were listed as assets on Trump's 2017 filing with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, though neither were holdings on the president's most recent filing for 2020.

    Trump may now be part Chinese :)

    Singapore Patient Plasma Used To Create Trump’s COVID-19 Antibody Cocktail

    One of the two antibodies in the cocktail used to treat US president Donald Trump for COVID-19 was developed using blood samples from three patients in Singapore. REGN-COV2, a combination of two antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, was developed by US-based biotechnology company Regeneron. Two papers describing preclinical studies of REGN-COV2 have been published in Science. Convalescent plasma from patients who have recovered from COVID-19 could contain protective antibodies that can be used to either prevent or treat the disease. Although the US Food and Drug Administration has authorized the emergency use of convalescent plasma to treat COVID-19, the difficulty of obtaining sufficient blood from volunteers means that it is not possible to use it at a large scale.
  • Mordor news

    Capitalist medicine collapse.

    • Good masks absent again
    • Bad ones have price 15x of normal time still
    • CT scan impossible to make until you have close to terminal state
    • Hospitalizations happen now >70% lungs damage figures (close to death figures)
    • Doctors are impossible to call and schedule
    • ER system collapsed, with time going from 15 minutes to 4-5 days
      • For reference - capitalists optimized ER system 4-5 times in previous 20 years, making it around 5 times smaller and destroying Er bases
  • image

    This time capitalists using new approach - much less lockdowns and much more sick patients at home, also very good for numbers, ad dead ones can now also not be counted.

  • Capitalist France medicine

    A significant number of French nurses responding to a poll say they are tired and fed up, with 37% saying that the pandemic is making them want to change jobs. The poll published Sunday by the National Order of Nurses comes as infection rates soar across the country.

    43% felt that “we are not better prepared collectively to respond to a new wave of infections”, according to the poll. The figure rises to 46% for nurses in the private domain. About two-thirds of respondents say their working conditions have deteriorated since the start of the crisis.

    For 37% of the nurses responding, the crisis “makes them want to change jobs” and 43% “don’t know if they will still be nurses in five years”, according to the poll.

    People are just screws, being fully alienated from their job sometimes, and with their bosses caring about their income, but not conditions and proper measures.
