US aircraft carrier's commander fired after pleading for help for sailors with coronavirus

The US Navy has fired the commander of an aircraft carrier who had warned American sailors aboard the vessel would die unless the coronaviru-hit ship was evacuated.

Captain Brett Crozier, the commanding officer of the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt with 5,000 people onboard, had called for help to save the lives of his sailors after an unconfirmed number tested positive for Covid-19 more than a week ago while the carrier was in the pacific.

In a letter, which was published by the San Francisco Chronicle and caught the Navy by surprise, Crozier described how bleak the situation was onboard the nuclear-powered carrier as more sailors were diagnosed with the virus.

Bill Gates Calls for a “Digital Certificate” to Identify Who Received COVID-19 Vaccine

Bill Gates recently stated on Reddit that “digital certificates” will be used to identify who received the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine. And these certificates will also be used to identify who can conduct business or not. Here’s how this plan is already backed by a massive organization called ID2020.

First quarantine, now digital leper bells: How much freedom are Britons willing to surrender in a fit of Covid-19 panic?

The NHS is planning to launch a coronavirus contact tracking app to help slow the spread of the disease through the population. It is reportedly planned for launch just before or just after the end of the lockdown, and is being modelled on TraceTogether, a Bluetooth based-app used in Singapore to curb the country’s Covid-19 spread. The idea behind this very 21st century way of keeping tabs on the health of the nation is for patients to upload their diagnostic data to the app. It will then communicate via Bluetooth with other nearby phones. If someone in the vicinity has tested positive for the disease then, after a short delay, those within an as yet to be revealed radius will be notified that they have been near someone with Covid-19.

Ground Control to Planet Lockdown: This Is Only a Test

As much as Covid-19 is a circuit breaker, a time bomb and an actual weapon of mass destruction (WMD), a fierce debate is raging worldwide on the wisdom of mass quarantine applied to entire cities, states and nations.

Those against it argue Planet Lockdown not only is not stopping the spread of Covid-19 but also has landed the global economy into a cryogenic state – with unforeseen, dire consequences. Thus quarantine should apply essentially to the population with the greatest risk of death: the elderly.

Amazon Bans Sale Of N95 And Surgical Masks To General Public

Amazon has banned the sale of N95 and surgical masks to the general public, claiming it would restrict sales to hospitals and government organizations dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ban took effect April 1, according to Recode, after the company said in a forum for Amazon sellers that the ban includes "facial shields, surgical gowns, surgical gloves, and large-volume sanitizers."

Hospitals and governments can qualify to purchase said items by filling out a form, while Amazon will be eliminating the commission it usually charges sellers in order "to encourage our selling partners to make additional inventory of these products available at competitive prices to these customers with the greatest need."

German tabloid Bild in hot water for giving airtime to Covid-19 testing firm currently under investigation

German tabloid Bild has come under fire after airing an interview with an ex-Playboy model who founded a controversial online startup selling pricey coronavirus home test kits. The company appeared to raise many red flags.

“Now, you can get coronavirus tests delivered right [to your] home,” a smiling presenter happily tells Germans in a video titled ‘You have to pay attention to it! This is how a coronavirus home test works’, published on Bild’s website. The announcement might well sound like salvation for people amid the coronavirus epidemic, which has already infected more than 67,000 across the country.

The initial development of all these weapons occurred in US labs as Fort Detrick. From there they went to government labs in Harvard University, Johns Hopkins, Big Pharma Usual Suspects, and various labs in Canada. The Rockefellers originally funded Canada, together with hidden government funds from Canada, the US, and the UK. France and the Netherlands were also connected.

Malaria drug considered for coronavirus COVID-19 may raise risk of heart problems: US scientists

The anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin, which are being considered by some for treating COVID-19, may increase the risk for dangerous abnormal heart rhythms, US cardiologists have warned.
The researchers from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Indiana University recommend that clinicians treating COVID-19 patients with the malaria-antibiotic drug combination should consider monitoring those patients for ventricular arrhythmia.

What is chloroquine and could it cure the new coronavirus?

In France, a team led by Didier Raoult of the IHU-Mediterranee Infection, Marseille reported last week they had carried out a study on 36 COVID-19 patients, finding that HCQ drastically reduced the viral load in a group which received the drug.

The effects were especially pronounced when it was used with azithromycin, a common antibiotic used to sweep out secondary bacterial infections.

What's more, HCQ and CQ drugs have been proven to act against the SARS-CoV-2 virus in lab settings, and a paper published by a Chinese team last week in Cell Discovery offered a potential mode of action.

Lawsuit Challenges Trump Administration’s Authorization to Kill 72 Grizzlies Near Yellowstone

The Center for Biological Diversity and Sierra Club filed a lawsuit today challenging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision to allow 72 grizzly bears to be killed to accommodate livestock grazing in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest, near Yellowstone National Park.

The grazing program area, approved by the U.S. Forest Service late last year, encompasses the headwaters of the Green and Gros Ventre rivers and two designated wilderness areas. The area provides important habitat for Yellowstone grizzly bears — listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act — and other imperiled fish and wildlife species.

The challenged decision authorizes the killing of up to 72 grizzly bears over the 10-year life of the reauthorized grazing program. The decision places no limits on killing female bears or cubs, even though females with cubs live where the proposed killing would be permitted.

Pastor who said COVID-19 hysteria was a media weapon against Trump dies from the coronavirus

A Christian musician and minister who believed that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is being used by the media to destroy the Trump presidency has ironically and tragically died from the virus himself.

Landon Spradlin, 66, was reportedly on his way back home to Gretna, Virginia, from a New Orleans ministry tour with his wife when he suddenly started having trouble breathing. He later died at Atrium Health Cabarrus, a hospital in Concord, North Carolina, after suffering complications from double pneumonia.

The Naval War College Ran a Pandemic War Game in 2019. The Conclusions Were Eerie

An infectious disease breaks out in a densely populated metropolis and is spreading rapidly, causing respiratory failure and death in its victims. As local containment and response mechanisms break down and cases multiply, it becomes clear that a global response -- spanning governments, humanitarian organizations, health agencies and the military -- will be required.

That scenario is not a condensed narrative of the COVID-19 pandemic that currently has much of the globe on lockdown. Rather, it's the premise of a war game run last September by the Naval War College (NWC) in Newport, Rhode Island. And its findings -- released in summary format Wednesday -- reveal prescient and sometimes troubling parallels to the real-world response effort that continues today.

No COVID-19 Test Kits For Navy Ships At Sea EXCLUSIVE

Not one of the Navy’s 82 ships currently underway has received coronavirus test kits for their crews, even as the number grows of sailors ashore testing positive.

“There are currently no FDA approved testing platforms that are suitable for placement on forward operating Naval Ships,” a Navy official told Breaking Defense via email. “So, the ships in the Pacific do not currently have the ability to conduct diagnostic testing for COVID-19. Depending on location, specimens can be sent for testing at shore based labs.”

The coronavirus had caused over 100 deaths in the United States — 8,000 worldwide — by Wednesday, but the federal government’s slow response to the global pandemic has led to testing rates much lower than countries like Italy and South Korea, both of which have been hit hard by the virus.

Neither has a background in medicine, but the answer is probably Bolsonaro, who is nearly thirty years Zuckerberg’s senior, and served a long career in the military, where basic medical training is usually mandatory even for non-medics. Outbreaks of disease, like Yellow Fever and the Zika virus, are more common in tropical, mosquito-prone Brazil than the U.S. Bolsonaro, like other heads of state, also has a Health Ministry, and like other world leaders no doubt receives daily briefings on the coronavirus.

COVID-19 “Figured Out” By Russian Scientists

Few people know anything about science that straddles mathematics and biology, and this is exactly what St. Petersburg State University’s Bioinformatics and Algorithmic Biotechnology Center is dealing with. The university that Russia’s current leader, Vladimir Putin, once graduated from is again at the cutting edge of this country’s scientific thought. By putting together the high-quality genome of RUSSIAN VERSION OFcoronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the Russian scientists learned how the Chinese version differs from the European one, and specifically the one that is now spreading in RussiaThe coronavirus is QUICKLY mutating and this makes it all the more dangerous. However, Russia is among the countries, which have been the first to stand in the way of the global pandemic and use their very best scientific resources to combat it.

Top Navy Official Provides Update on Aircraft Carrier COVID-19 Cases

Numerous sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, and the Navy continues to support its subordinate commanders to protect sailors and Marines so they can protect the homeland and maintain their readiness to the best of their ability, Acting Navy Secretary Thomas B. Modly said.

In a telephone briefing for Pentagon reporters today, the acting secretary said the Roosevelt has had 93 positive tests, with 86 of those service members exhibiting symptoms and seven having no symptoms. So far, 593 have tested negative.

Nearly 1,300 crew members have been tested so far, and some of the results have not come back yet, he added.

The Navy has accelerated testing and is deep-cleaning all the spaces on the ship, Modly said.

REVEALED: MONSANTO PREDICTED CROP SYSTEM WOULD DAMAGE US FARMS

SOURCE: THE GUARDIAN
The US agriculture giant Monsanto and the German chemical giant BASF were aware for years that their plan to introduce a new agricultural seed and chemical system would probably lead to damage on many US farms, internal documents seen by the Guardian show.

Risks were downplayed even while they planned how to profit off farmers who would buy Monsanto’s new seeds just to avoid damage, according to documents unearthed during a recent successful $265m lawsuit brought against both firms by a Missouri farmer.

The documents, some of which date back more than a decade, also reveal how Monsanto opposed some third-party product testing in order to curtail the generation of data that might have worried regulators.

And in some of the internal BASF emails, employees appear to joke about sharing “voodoo science” and hoping to stay “out of jail”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How is it that a frankenchemical, engineered to cause harm to both crops and humans, is allowed to continue to exist over time?!?

The short answer, is that Bayer/Monsanto has bribed/lied/contributed their way to "product bullet-proofness", until very recently.

This should never have happened, and should never happen again in this country, but you can bet your sweet bippie that it will.

And why do I say this?!?

Because those executives in these companies have never had to go to jail, for signing off on projects which damage both crops, and human health, in this magnitude.

THAT, my friends, needs to get fixed, and quickly.

IF EVER, there were two companies

MIKE POMPEO: CORONAVIRUS CRISIS "LIVE EXERCISE"?!

SOURCE: YOUTUBE
Pompeo admitted on CNN that “we’re in a live exercise here” when referring to COVID-19 during a press conference. This is yet more evidence that the entire coronavirus crisis has been scripted, planned for and orchestrated. The language that Pompeo used – “live exercise” – is eerily reminiscent of language used in false flag operations when the exercise or drill “went live”, i.e. when the very scenario that the authorities were planning for actually happened (see 9/11, 7/7 and numerous US mass shootings) as they were in the middle of their exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The man needs to be deposed, under oath, and forced to tell the American public (and the world) precisely what he meant by that statement.

Of course, right now, that will happen... only when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

Air travel is slowing dramatically amid the coronavirus pandemic. The number of seats on scheduled flights this week was down 15% worldwide compared to the week of January 20, according to data from OAG, but that understates the severity of the downturn given how many planes have been flying mostly empty. Foot traffic at airports may provide a better picture.

For example, on Wednesday, Milan’s airport, at the epicenter of the outbreak in Italy, was 80% less busy than usual, and foot traffic at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport was off 35%, based on data from Google’s tracking of smartphone users’ locations compiled by Wanderlog.

Zinc deficiency can lead to a wide range of health problems

One of the most important functions of zinc is regulating pathogen-specific responses of the immune system by triggering T cell activation. This activity is the reason why people suffering from colds take zinc lozenges or syrups since these significantly reduce the severity and duration of the disease if taken within the first 24 hours of exhibiting symptoms. Without sufficient levels of this mineral, the functions of the immune system are significantly impaired, and the body becomes vulnerable to diseases.

Can zinc help fight COVID-19?

Zinc is an essential mineral for human health, but we generally don’t need large quantities of it; around 15 milligrams a day is considered reasonable. Responsible for our immune system, wound healing, eyesight, and brain development, it has also been shown to possess antiviral activity.

In one study, people who took zinc while experiencing cold symptoms experienced a far shorter average cold duration than a control group at 4.5 days versus eight days. The participants took roughly 80 milligrams per day, which may be above the daily requirement but is unlikely to cause problems if taken in the short term.

Zn2+ Inhibits Coronavirus and Arterivirus RNA Polymerase Activity In Vitro and Zinc Ionophores Block the Replication of These Viruses in Cell Culture

Increasing the intracellular Zn2+ concentration with zinc-ionophores like pyrithione (PT) can efficiently impair the replication of a variety of RNA viruses, including poliovirus and influenza virus. For some viruses this effect has been attributed to interference with viral polyprotein processing. In this study we demonstrate that the combination of Zn2+ and PT at low concentrations (2 µM Zn2+ and 2 µM PT) inhibits the replication of SARS-coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and equine arteritis virus (EAV) in cell culture.

Pharma Insider: ‘First Data From Clinical Studies’ Indicates ‘Hydroxychloroquine Kills the Coronavirus’

Novartis Chief Executive Vas Narasimhan has announced that there is preliminary evidence showing that “hydroxychloroquine kills the coronavirus.”

Narasimhan made the announcement to Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung on Sunday, as he was touting the ability of his pharmaceutical corporation to develop medicines to stop the pandemic. They have pledged to donate 130 million doses of hydroxychloroquine as soon as the medicine is approved for widespread use.

“Pre-clinical studies in animals as well as the first data from clinical studies show that hydroxychloroquine kills the coronavirus,” Narasimhan said to the newspaper.

“We’re working with Swiss hospitals on possible treatment protocols for the clinical use of the drug, but it’s too early to say anything definitively,” he added.

During his daily COVID-19 press conference, President Donald Trump reported that, “laughter is the best medicine,” in the fight against coronavirus. He also called for a national “Day of Satire” to combat the deadly pandemic.

‘People do not realise what is coming’: What a coronavirus crisis would look like in war-torn Syria, Yemen and Libya

As Europe deals with the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled healthcare services on an unprecedented scale, countries in the Middle East already decimated by war are bracing themselves for disaster.

Doctors and health officials tell The Independent in over a dozen interviews across Syria, Yemen and Libya that they cannot halt the spread of the deadly coronavirus, and that healthcare systems are completely ‘open and vulnerable’ to the impending crisis.

They fear millions of vulnerable people are at risk of death where years of conflict have destroyed health care systems, severed supply lines and allowed famine and diseases like cholera to sweep through the populations.

Wear a SCARF: Donald Trump tells people to cover their faces 'if they want to do it' as he acknowledges there are NOT enough masks to recommend that everyone wear one when they go outside

President Trump floated during Tuesday's briefing that Americans can wear scarves 'if they want to do it' if they're concerned about contracting coronavirus.

'And just about masks, you could get a mask, but you could also - but most people have scarves and scarves are very good and they can use a scarf and we're only talking about a limited period of time,' the president said.

Health officials who have previously urged Americans not to wear face masks unless they're ill are in the process of deciding if the public should wear them as a way to prevent the coronavirus from spreading.

Innocent EMT, Working the Front Line, Killed in Her Bed by Cops Raiding the Wrong Home

Louisville, KY — According to his attorney, Kenneth Walker woke up in the middle of the night to armed intruders kicking in his door. He then grabbed his legally owned firearm to defend himself. A hail of gunfire subsequently ensued, all but one of the bullets coming from police weapons, and Walker’s girlfriend 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, a certified EMT working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, was killed in her bed.

Earlier this month, police fired 22 bullets into the couple’s home, many of them shot from outside. According to the attorney representing the family, Sam Aguiar, police were actually looking for someone else and other officers had picked the suspect up at his home in a separate raid shortly before the shooting.

High Level Child Rapists Released from Prison Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

Greece, NY — Over the past two weeks, non-violent inmates have been released from prisons across the country in an attempt to prevent massive outbreaks behind bars. Some law enforcement officials have raised concerns over releasing people in jail for marijuana possession, but they’ve largely been ignored thanks to common sense. However, law enforcement sources in New York are now justified in their concerns as child rapists have been released.

After Citizens Refused to Obey, Sheriff Reverses Decision to Close Gun Stores

This week, Villanueva stated that he is abandoning his effort to shut down gun stores. As the AP reports, the sheriff said he’s heeding a federal Department of Homeland Security advisory issued on Saturday that listed gun and ammunition dealers as “essential critical infrastructure workers.”

As TFTP reported last week, other areas of California are practicing similar civil disobedience and refusing to shutter the doors to their guns stores.

“We have no plans to close,” said David Chong, who owns AO Sword Firearms in El Cajon. “We have not heard any lawful order to shut down.”

Chong, like the rest of the pro-gun rights individuals above, recognizes that the closure of gun stores is a direct attack on your Second Amendment right to bear arms.

“We have to be very careful not to get into a ridiculous situation where we are sterilizing the Second Amendment by saying, ‘Oh you can keep and bear arms but you can’t acquire any,'” Chong said.

Coronavirus Missives from the Philippines, USA, France, Lebanon and Germany

In Singapore, you can be jailed for half a year for failing to keep “social distance.” The same offense in New York will only get you fined for up to $500, although an 86-year-old woman has just been killed when she got too close to someone at a Brooklyn hospital. Out of masks, Tennessee doctors strap diapers on their faces.

On March 29th, 2020, 756 Italians died from the coronavirus, and that’s considered encouraging news, believe it or not, since 919 lost their lives on the 27th. Half of the world is in lockdown, and should this drag on, riots will certainly break out, since billions can’t just stay indoors as their food runs out, if it hasn’t already.

Here in Busan, people still mingle, talk and laugh, but schools remain closed, and the baseball season won’t start until April, if that. There are no more international flights from here. Two weeks ago, I could still fly to Saipan or Vladivostok, which is so close, but Russia has just sealed its borders, as has China.

Flu season deaths top 80,000 last year, CDC says

(CNN)An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This means it was the deadliest season in more than four decades -- since 1976, the date of the first published paper reporting total seasonal flu deaths, said CDC Spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund.
In previous seasons, flu-related deaths have ranged from a low of about 12,000 during the 2011-2012 season to a high of about 56,000 during the 2012-2013.

People dying equals Coronavirus? An engineered virus?

I’ve detailed, in past articles, all the Chinese cases who have been diagnosed for no other reason than they have pneumonia, a traditional disease of major proportions in China. Studies estimate that roughly 300,000 citizens die of it every year. Which means there are millions of Chinese people who have develop pneumonia each year. Furthermore, the Chinese government quickly abandoned the idea of testing for the purported coronavirus—favoring instead, CT scans of the lungs. A finding of pneumonia was sufficient for a diagnosis of an “epidemic case.” That is absurd on its face. Pneumonia has many causes, none of which requires a new virus.

Bill Gates’ Quantum Dot Digital Tattoo Implant to Track COVID-19 Vaccine Compliance

Microsoft founder Bill Gates announced on March 18, 2020 during a “Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ session” that he is working on a new, invisible “quantum dot tattoo” implant that will track who has been tested for COVID-19 and who has been vaccinated against it.

According to BioHackInfo.Com: “The quantum-dot tattoos involve applying dissolvable sugar-based microneedles that contain a vaccine and fluorescent copper-based ‘quantum dots’ embedded inside biocompatible, micron-scale capsules. After the microneedles dissolve under the skin, they leave the encapsulated quantum dots whose patterns can be read to identify the vaccine that was administered.”

The No.1 Priority Right Now Is to Test a Representative Sample of the Population — Why Isn’t It Being Done?

Get a polling company to create a 3000-strong representative sample of your population. Then take 9,000 of your SARS-CoV-2 tests and go triple-test every one of them.

Then finally we’ll have the answer to the question of how much covid-19 virus is already out there and therefore what the actual hospitalization and mortality rates are, and we can finally decide what measures make, or do not make, sense based on some actual data.

(And as a bonus we’ll get some insight into how accurate the tests themselves are.)

Peter Schiff: Americans Are in For a Rude Awakening

Peter said this time he thinks the world is going to kick out the dollar as the reserve currency. If that happens, the dollar will just be another currency.

And that means Americans are going to have to have to abide by the same economic rules that govern everybody else. That means if we want to consume, we’ve got to produce. If we want to borrow, we’ve got to save. And Americans are going to be in for a rude awakening.”

There Is No Such Thing as “Non-Essential Business” as Our Commie Governments Will Soon Find Out (As Will We)

As the coronavirus-induced economic lockdowns have tightened across the US, we’ve seen the emergence of a government-inspired fantasy – the myth of the nonessential business.

Government officials across the country have forced the closure of these so-called non-essential businesses while allowing “essential” enterprises to soldier on. Politicians and bureaucrats have developed arbitrary criteria to determine which businesses are and are not essential.

I say arbitrary because there is really no objective way to make such a determination.

The Biggest Fraud in History is Happening Right Before Our Eyes

More and more evidence is forthcoming daily that this new coronavirus called Covid-19, is not only being blown out of proportion, but is purposely being manipulated to show many more deaths than are actually caused by this mystery virus. In some cases, as in Italy, the so-called current epicenter of this falsely identified pandemic, the obvious deception is easy to identify, but it goes on none the less; this due to the perpetrators of this fraud understanding that fear sells, and allows for the unimpeded ease of population control. This is partially due to a weakness of mind, but also to the fact that the American public is no longer independent and free, but is beholding to the state as guardian of the flock.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

: CBS NEWS caught red handed. Running a video clip of nurses and doctors scrambling around to care for the incoming CV cases. PANIC. The people were told that this was happening in NYC. A "LIE". The clip was taken from an Italian hospital. CBS later admitted the error. Claims that it was an Editing error. That is a "LIE". Purposeful misreporting. To fan the flames of this Panic Demic CV19. NOW you understand why we call the MSM the FAKE news. They have earned that title.

Pence task force freezes coronavirus aid amid backlash

Last week, a Trump administration official working to secure much-needed protective gear for doctors and nurses in the United States had a startling encounter with counterparts in Thailand.

The official asked the Thais for help—only to be informed by the puzzled voices on the other side of the line that a U.S. shipment of the same supplies, the second of two so far, was already on its way to Bangkok.

Is This What's Behind Italy's Outrageous 10% Mortality Rate From COVID-19?

Italy's 10% mortality rate has been one of the most disturbing mysteries of the global pandemic. Italy's mortality rate is roughly 20x Germany's (a relatively benign 0.4%), and many multiples of China's (roughly 2.5%) rate.

As scientists puzzle over the reason, researchers have proposed a theory that's being vetted by peers: Italy's mild flu season left a larger victim pool for COVID-19. This would suggest that the US, which has struggled with more lethal flu seasons, won't have as large a pool of potential high-risk victims, especially as testing suggests the virus is more widespread than many had expected.

The microstate of 18,000 people is among a dwindling number of places on Earth that still report zero cases of COVID-19 as figures mount daily elsewhere.

The disparate group also includes Samoa, Turkmenistan, North Korea and bases on the frozen continent of Antarctica.

Americans are among the world's most vulnerable to coronavirus because of their rising rates of obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure

Americans may be too diseased to return to work after the worst of the coronavirus pandemic has passed because they are the most vulnerable.

The US is already facing huge burdens on its healthcare system with rising rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and other chronic conditions.

More than 60 percent of adults in the country have at least one underlying health condition, according to Tom Frieden, former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

All of these health issues increase the risk of infection of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, and worse: death.

FLASHBACK 2005 - Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread

We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.

FLASHBACK 2015 - Lab-Made Coronavirus Triggers Debate

Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, last week (November 9) published a study on his team’s efforts to engineer a virus with the surface protein of the SHC014 coronavirus, found in horseshoe bats in China, and the backbone of one that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in mice. The hybrid virus could infect human airway cells and caused disease in mice, according to the team’s results, which were published in Nature Medicine.

WITH CORONAVIRUS ALREADY ON 97 AMERICAN MILITARY BASES, THE ARMED FORCES STRUGGLE WITH THEIR MANY MISSIONS

The first of about 500 soldiers of the 1st Brigade of the 10th Mountain Division, as well as soldiers in the division's 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, started arriving Monday at Ft. Drum in upstate New York, making the long journey home from their duty in Afghanistan.

In a message to families posted on Facebook, division commander Maj. Gen. Brian Mennes said the troops were returning home "sooner than anticipated"—60 days earlier than previously planned—in response, he said, to the commander-in-chief's desire to downsize forces in Afghanistan but also an accelerated schedule because of coronavirus. After a 14-day quarantine in what he says will be comfortable facilities on base, soldiers and families will be reunited.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would love to think that there will be a reconsideration of these endless wars, because of Covid 19; unfortunately, Congress, sitting at the public trough, has no real compunction to make this happen.

After all, many of them are "making a killing" (literally and figuratively) through buying stock in (and getting supported for election through) companies whose main goal is obliteration of human life on this planet.

There is an old phrase, "Those who are unwilling to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it."; this could not possibly be more true for the US Congress,. at this point in its history.
