More than one of every 10 people with COVID-19 develop diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting, and these symptoms may be a key driver of disease spread, an analysis published by JAMA Network Open says. While just 12 percent of patients infected with the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, experience these gastrointestinal symptoms, more than 40 percent of them shed virus - meaning, they're contagious - via feces, the researchers said. Clinicians from the Institute of Infectious Diseases at Beijing Ditan Hospital, Capital Medical University found that some patients had positive real-time fluorescence polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test results for SARS-CoV-2 in the sputum or feces after the pharyngeal swabs became negative. The CDC is unclear on this point - they give the standard answer
President Trump has been proved right again with another shockingly successful hydroxychloroquine study, done by the Henry Ford Health System and published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases. This new explosive study proves the experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) have been proved wrong—again. Those experts have often said that the drug, typically used for malaria, was useless for the Chinese coronavirus. USA Today even mocked the President declaring, “Coronavirus treatment: Dr. Donald Trump peddles snake oil and false hope.” No, the peddlers of snake oil, that includes most of the mainstream media, have been proved again to be blind, benighted bigots desperately supporting a failed political candidate, a false political philosophy,
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are tasked with informing the public on the number of patients dying from Coronavirus, among other aspects of infection control. Why does the CDC report the Mortality Surveillance numbers for this crisis by lumping vital statistic reports for Pneumonia, Influenza, and COVID-19 together? Is their goal to produce a larger number as COVID-19 attributed deaths, only to break out in detail buried deep in the data? Consider the following chart: Denoted on the left side of the graph - the index states, "percent of deaths due to Pneumonia, Influenza OR COVID-19." The media and political left have been scrambling to censor and dismiss any notion that not ALL death certificates (vital statistics) are patients who died from the
Dr. Jonathan Temte, associate dean for public health and community engagement at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health in addressing the argument that numbers showing the prevalence of COVID-19 are overstated, Temte said that's wrong. Really? Let's fact check this - be patient, read carefully, and take the time to walk through the data slowly. According to Temte, an actual death count doesn't exist, in part because of statutes such as Wisconsin's that only require providers to report pediatric deaths from influenza. It's voluntary to report flu deaths from adults. Additionally, Wisconsin does not require influenza testing to be reported. "Influenza ascertainment has always been nebulous," he said. 'In the best circumstances, we can assess what happens within a clinical population."
For well over a few months now we have been watching the COVID-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University scare map death ticker go up like a ticker on the gas pump at your local filling station filling up your car gas tank. The number that we have all been asking for is how many people are dying of regular Pneumonia and Influenza during the Coronavirus pandemic? It seems that we know the exact death rates of COVID-19 deaths by the minute. For regular Flu, not so much. How can this be? Well, finally, we have some data from the CDC to look at from the Weekly U.S. Influenza Surveillance Report. Take a look
As we sit here overnight Sunday, the markets are set to crash again - S&P500 futures are limit down. Oil is crashing and many safe-haven currencies have exploded. Coronavirus is coming! Fear moves markets. Borders are closing, events canceled and economies are set to fall ... you have been reading all the scary headlines. If it's not a Coronavirus pandemic it is certainly a media pandemic. The media needs fear to generate clicks. Government leaders need to respond or be seen as ineffective leaders. It's a vicious circle. So even if it is not a pandemic it will certainly affect the economy at this point. Of course, Trump will not escape this scrutiny of his naysayers ... it's Trump's fault. The Coronavirus
Americans, and the rest of the globe as well, are addicted to social media platforms that deliver stimulation and information on a constant loop. Mainstream media, over the last decade, has blown past simple tenets of providing value to attract advertising and have morphed into a highly effective mechanism for political indoctrination. Today's Media have become your scintillating neighborhood, dope pusher, and the dope is now FEAR. The adage. "If it bleeds, It leads," provided "punch" and eyes to a thirty-minute format, structured around the mission of news outlets, which is to inform the public. Journalists reported on Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How, in other words, they reported the news as it happened with the known facts as it unfolds. Issues/opinions were presented in context
