    People lost jobs because of the shut down imposed around the overhyped Covid bs.
    It is not Ebola.
    Wouldn’t be surprised if the Covid response was a concerted effort by the left to wreck the economy in an election year.

    Trump wanted to shut down flights as soon as we found out about covid. then Nancy Pelosi went to China town and told America we should be fear this virus that trump was paranoid, now they want to blame him for not shutting down everything, he he did then they would blame him for bankrupting the country, which almost happened. Democrats goal was because our economy was booming, they needed to crash it and blame it on trump. I was a Democrat and no way I will ever vote for this party again ever, they are most evil.

    Harris is lying precautions will be started back in January please they were still trying to keep them peach the president when that was going once they realized that wasn't going to happen all of a sudden the coronavirus became an issue and Nancy Pelosi and Bill de Blasio New York wasn't even taking it serious Nancy Pelosi was in Chinatown encouraging people to come down all of this is before March so what she talking about? The Blasio was still going to the gym. No one knew the magnitude of what the coronavirus was about they ain't even have a clue until later on is they started getting more information that's when everybody started being more on the same page so why is she making it appear as if Trump didn't care about it at all come on let's be realistic

    Linked below is current data from Vadodara India, a city of 2 million
    where a COVID-19 outbreak began 6 months ago, and where 342,000
    residents were given hydroxychloroquine sulfate as prophylaxis. Now
    6 months later the deaths are 204. That death total is VERY LOW
    compared with many areas of similar population density where HCQS
    has not been used. It shows a more than tenfold reduction in deaths.
    Extrapolating Vadodara data to the US it reasonably means 180,000
    less people would have died, had the "game changer" of Vadodara
    been freely implemented in the US. But HCQS wasn't used because
    there are so many "geniuses" in their own minds who think they are
    smarter than Trump, being so irrational in that belief that the lives of
    thousands of human beings are pawns in the "more virtuous intellect"
    of any obsessive Trump hater. Prime Minister Modi of India is not
    a stupid man and neither is President Trump. Many critics of both
    good men are true imbeciles of the Darwin Award variety. What kind
    of moron would send COVID-19 patients to nursing homes instead of
    sending those sick people to an isolation ward ?




    Resurgence potential exists with seasonal changes for obvious reasons.
    This causes me to become an ad hoc apothecary stocked with medicines
    that have been becoming subject to shortages. Many people are thinking
    on a parallel path and doing exactly the same thing as a preparedness.

    We are taking the nutritional supplement prophylaxis for the past 6 months.
    Quercetin / zinc, selenium, Vitamin D, K1, A, C, B1, NAC, melatonin, added
    to the usual One A Day or Centrum multivitamin. I keep a good supply of the
    supplements, prophylaxis, and treatment prescription meds for immediate use
    if needed.

    SARS-CoV-2 generally presents in children as a benign childhood disease
    like chicken pox, not a serious risk for children, but more dangerous for adults.
    There are several other virus types similarly are not generally dangerous for
    children, for example Epstein-Barr Virus, but are generally dangerous to adults.
    SARS-CoV-2 is an addition to the list of what is now an emergent childhood
    disease no adult should suffer.

    Children have less ACE2 cell receptors (more appear as you grow older).
    Compensation for the generation gap that is inherent for such an unusual virus,
    is provided by supplements and medicines to augment and refine the immune
    response of the adults who are disadvantaged of course, being already grownups
    when first exposed to the disease.


    As I understand it a reasonable theory on masking usefulness relates to limiting
    the number of infectious particles on exposure. For example, when the mails
    were contaminated with anthrax powder that was inhaled, it was observed that
    mortality was related to the number of spore particles inhaled at initial exposure,
    and this is a general rule that is also observed for SARS-CoV-2 particles. Being
    lightly exposed and infected is less dangerous, than being heavily exposed and
    more infected, when the doubling rate takes off after the incubation period.




    Here linked is an interview with Dr. Graves and Dr. Zelenko where Dr. Graves
    describes her contact with WH and is assured that the Zelenko Protocol is being
    taken by President Trump. Evidently information considered "sensitive" is not
    disclosed to avoid "triggering" all the "masterminds" who believe they are smarter
    than Prime Minister Modi or President Trump. Why provide any fresh subject matter
    to trouble their challenged and inferior intellects with any added exertions.

    Pence is a useless Trump tool.

    Trump and Pence knew how dangerous the corona virus was, and their response was to ridicule those who wore masks, to push hydroxy-chloroquine, and to suggest injecting disinfectant. All the while, Americans died by the tens of thousands. A thousand more American deaths every day. 210,000 American deaths, and counting. Wearing a mask = an improving economy. Pence, and the Russian asset in the White House don't seem to get that. They're all about short cuts, lying, cheating, stealing. It's their history. It's what they do.

    Read it and weep corporate media and Dr. Fauci sycophants. See the light about Fauci.
    Dr. Anthony Fauci should not be trusted. Fauci is a discredited shill for Big Pharma who has been deceptive about the safety and efficacy of a cheap therapeutic that is now evident is the Vadodara India “game changer” called hydroxychloroquine. It is a very safe medicine cheaply available over the counter in many parts of the world as an anti-malarial commonly used for prophylaxis by millions of travelers to regions where malaria exists.

    On reflection, President Trump’s March 19th news conference was, in a negative way, pivotal. In that conference, he publicly stated that hydroxychloroquine could be a “game changer”. Following his statement, Dr. Anthony Fauci immediately stated that hydroxychloroquine had only been studied in vitro despite the FACT that the Chinese, South Koreans, and French had already studied it in vivo, and noted that it decreased viral loads in patients. Dr. Fauci may have disagreed with how these countries studied it but the fact remains they did. What is important about his disparaging incorrect claim is Fauci set himself up as an arbiter for the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine, yet Fauci has been advocating competitor drugs: Remdesivir and vaccines. By any measure this was a conflict of interest, and a bureaucrat like Dr. Fauci is not above playing favorites even at the cost of lives. Then Dr. Fauci dropped an unsolicited remark, stating that he liked randomized control trials (RCTs), setting-the-bar high for what he would consider acceptable studies. But RCTs are very expensive and time-consuming, with pharmaceutical companies and governments tending to be the gatekeepers. Accordingly, pharmaceutical companies felt obliged to sponsor RCTs against their *competitor*, hydroxychloroquine, kneecapping it with flawed treatment hypotheses, like Tonya Harding’s team kneecapped figure skater, Nancy Kerrigan. For the diabolical ways in which these bogus studies administered hydroxychloroquine to their patients, they might as well have applied the pills as patches or directly used the pills as suppositories. Yes, RCTs, like all other studies, can easily be rigged to fail, so it is the quality of the treatment hypothesis that really counts, not the quality of the testing methodology. Dr. Fauci left the public with a false impression that only RCTs could determine hydroxychloroquine’s safety and efficacy for COVID-19 despite the fact that the EMA and FDA have accepted 76 drugs within a period of fifteen years without RCTs [1]. RCTs are certainly appropriate for new vaccines because they would-be administered to patients uninfected by the disease. "Primum non nocere." ("First, do no harm.") However, if one is a high-risk coronavirus patient, a patient being treated with an off-label drug with a known excellent safety profile, historical controlled studies are quite sufficient. Besides, denying care to those afflicted with such a deadly virus, something that would be required in an RCT, would be “unethical or impractical” [1].

    Receiving a fair hearing of HCQ's efficacy does not require additional positive studies; we have plenty of those. The answer is to publicly disqualify Dr. Fauci as the self-appointed arbiter of HCQ's safety and efficacy. In this vein, Dr. Fauci has already disqualified himself, revealing his confirmation bias over the Lancet study fiasco.

    At the time the Lancet study was published, Dr. Fauci was subsequently interviewed by CNN and used the Lancet study to conclude that hydroxychloroquine was a dry hole, suggesting that our country should move on to other promising therapies like the ultra-expensive Remdesivir [2]. Then in protest 112 doctors, researchers, statisticians, and others, wrote an open-letter to Lancet, questioning the legitimacy of the study [3], but Dr. Fauci, our country’s “expert” suspiciously, was not one of them. After the study was retracted, it was also revealed that Surgisphere, the company that supplied the research data, was run by a lawyer, sci-fi writer and adult content model, supplying data more fit for the Pornhub than the pages of medical journals. Since then our “expert,” the president’s former go-to-person, Dr. Fauci, has never explained how he was punk’d by the fraudulent Lancet study. Nevertheless, Dr. Fauci went on to label the Henry Ford study flawed [4]. If Fauci was unable to recognize the obviously fraudulent Lancet study as trash, how was he able to determine the Henry Ford study is flawed? How can anyone trust a study analysis by Fauci going forward? So who is it is truly spewing quackery here? Fauci.

    Suspiciously, the press avoids tangling with Front Line Doctors like Dr. Simone Gold. Why? Will corporate news media publicly attack someone like Prof. Harvey A. Risch ? Why not ?

    I agree with Sen. Harris. The GOP have betrayed the American people. They care more about power than making sure they protect citizens. Downplaying/rallies and not putting another stimulus package is a disgrace to Americans
