Oops! We were wrong about the Severity of the Wuhan Virus

by: Brent Smith

Well I’ll be. Another computer model has completely overblown the severity of something. First, decades of global warming doomsday scenarios developed by computer models have been proven to be complete crap, and now the Wuhan coronavirus computer generated sick and death toll numbers are found to be not even close.

But we humans sure do love to panic. It sometimes seems that we thrive on it. I think it’s why so many love horror movies.

So, without ever questioning the method or results of the “scientific” community, we, like lemmings, dutifully hunker down in shelters and comply with the edicts of “experts.” For the “experts” can never be wrong.

Well, the experts were apparently wrong when they gave us the dire warning that we best be prepared for this to last 12-18 months. And now that’s been revised ever so slightly to possibly peaking in as little as 2 to 3 weeks!

Meanwhile, multiple millions are out of work, businesses are forced to close and possibly for good. Supply shortages are everywhere and more than likely, the suicide rate will spike due the fear instilled in people. read more

Yellow Journalists Blame Trump for Man’s Death

by: Brent Smith

On Tuesday, the ultra-leftist Guardian website posted an article entitled: “Arizona man dies after attempting to take Trump coronavirus ‘cure’.”

Well that’s a surprise on at least two fronts. First – I wasn’t aware that Trump was president, a doctor and a research scientist. Who knew?

And second, what kind of moron would drink fish tank cleaner – for any reason?

Oh and there is a third point, yet it’s no surprise. It’s the Guardian’s practice of yellow journalism when it comes to reporting on Trump.

If one would read the entire article, you don’t discover the facts, as they are, until paragraph 11 – at least three quarters of the way through the article. The article is only 15 paragraphs long. read more

WND Exclusive – Will the FDA approve Chloroquine to treat Coronavirus?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Something rather remarkable has occurred just recently regarding the Chinese/Wuhan coronavirus. And yes, I said it. Go ahead and call me a racist if you wish.

A treatment has been developed that shows promise at stopping the virus in virtually all patients for whom it’s been administered.

Early tests suggest that it can stop the virus from being contagious in just six days, with little to no side effects.

This is a huge breakthrough that’s happened in no time flat.

I stress that this appears effective as a treatment. It is not a vaccine, but if it’s as effective as advertised, it will buy the time needed to develop one.

Professor Didier Raoult from infection hospital l’Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire (IHU) Méditerranée Infection in Marseille, France, said that, “the first COVID-19 patients he had treated with the drug chloroquine had seen a rapid and effective speeding up of their healing process, and a sharp decrease in the amount of time they remained contagious.” read more

Not only are herniated discs painful and debilitating, but treatments for them leave something to be desired. A new technique, however, may be more effective than anything that’s come before. read more

WND Exclusive – Would the ‘Squad’ use an Israel-developed coronavirus vaccine?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Will anti-Semites, like those in the “Squad,” reject a COVID-19 vaccine if it is developed by Israel?

Regarding the coronavirus, as things improve in China, things will likely worsen in America. However, they are not likely to get as bad as it is in others countries, like Italy.

But we have to be careful about comparisons. The effects of this virus are apparently amplified in the elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.

What isn’t widely publicized is that Italy’s median age is much higher than other European nations, thus it is being hit much harder than nations with younger overall populations.

That being said, the reason why things are improving in China while worsening in the U.S. and elsewhere is the timeline. read more

Canadian Healthcare Ain’t Great

by: Brent Smith

With America currently in the grip of coronavirus madness, healthcare is again front and center.

Will there be a treatment? How long will it take to develop and once it is, how long will the wait be for the administration of it once it is available?

Well, it may all depend on what country you reside in.

Many in America, especially leftists, complain about the American healthcare system. They would prefer something like, for example the Canadian system, where everyone is covered, its all free and it’s far superior to the American system.

So once a vaccine is produced, let’s all run across the border to Canada, because Canadian healthcare is great!

Or is it?

French-Canadian entrepreneur Alain Lambert has a different take on it – and it’s not quite as rosy.

They mightn’t seem like the most obvious places to look, but the venom of deadly creatures like spiders, snakes and scorpions are an increasingly rich source of medicines for human health. The latest example of this comes from scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who have discovered a tiny protein in scorpion venom that could become part of a potent new treatment for arthritis. read more

Could Have Had a Coronavirus Vaccine

from NBC:

Scientists were close to a coronavirus vaccine years ago. Then the money dried up.

“We just could not generate much interest,” a researcher said of the difficulty in getting funding to test the vaccine in humans.

HOUSTON — Dr. Peter Hotez says he made the pitch to anyone who would listen. After years of research, his team of scientists in Texas had helped develop a vaccine to protect against a deadly strain of coronavirus. Now they needed money to begin testing it in humans. read more
