    Hey! I'm locked in my house. It's Ford and Trudeau going to the cottage.

    805 out of 37,000,000 people and you bankrupt the CFL, not to mention all the other damage. Right.

    82% of Canada’s COVID-19 deaths have been in long-term care, new data reveals So, that means what, 805 deaths have been outside of long-term care, and for that we're in danger of bankrupting the CFL?

    Covid-19

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose “expert” advice to President Trump has resulted in the complete shutdown of the greatest economic engine in world history, has known since 2005 that chloroquine is an effective inhibitor of coronaviruses. How did he know this? Because of research done by the National Institutes of Health, of which he is the director. In connection with the SARS outbreak – caused by a coronavirus dubbed SARS- CoV – the NIH researched chloroquine and concluded that it was effective at stopping the SARS coronavirus in its tracks. The COVID-19 bug is likewise a coronavirus, labeled SARS-CoV-2. While not exactly the same virus as SARS-CoV-1, it is genetically related to it, and shares 79% of its genome, as the name SARS-CoV-2 implies. They both use the same host cell receptor, which is what viruses use to gain entry to the cell and infect the victim. https://en-volve.com/2020/05/06/dr-fauci-approved-hydroxychloroquine-15-years-ago-to-combat-coronaviruses-trump-must-investigate/

    Covid-19

    A new study offers a glimmer of hope in the grim fight against the coronavirus: Nearly everyone who has had the disease — regardless of age, sex or severity of illness — makes antibodies to the virus. https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/health-news/after-recovery-from-the-coronavirus-most-people-carry-antibodies/ar-BB13KZiX

    China Study Finds 5% to 15% of Covid-19 Cases Are Reactivated The rate of reactivation in China varied among different places, with some regions showing less than 1% of such cases among recovered patients, Wang Guiqiang, director of department of infection at the Peking University First Hospital. Wang disclosed the figures during a press conference held by China’s National Health Commission on Thursday. Wang said most of the patients who have tested positive again have yet to show any symptoms, and it needs more work to find out the reason for the reactivation. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-07/china-study-finds-5-to-15-of-covid-19-cases-are-reactivated

    Covid-19

    If it didn't, wouldn't people be getting re-infected? Serious question. Of all the people that have had it and recovered, I haven't heard of any of them catching it repeatedly. Have you? There was one woman in Japan that thought she might have caught it twice but they're now skeptical, thinking she likely just never got over the first infection adequately.

    "Among anti-herders, it is popular to compare the current number of Covid-19 deaths by country and as a proportion of the population. Such comparisons are misleading, as they ignore the existence of herd immunity. A country much closer to herd immunity will ultimately do better even if their current death count is somewhat higher. The key statistic is instead the number of deaths per infected. Those data are still elusive, but comparisons and strategies should not be based on misleading data just because the relevant data are unavailable. While it is not perfect, Sweden has come closest to an age-based strategy by keeping elementary schools, stores and restaurants open, while older people are encouraged to stay at home. Stockholm may become the first place to reach herd immunity, which will protect high-risk groups better than anything else until there is a cure or vaccine." https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/04/29/delaying-herd-immunity-is-costing-lives/

    This is true and my heart really does go out to the decent, average, hard-working American people that are taking it on the chin right now. The stock markets are rising due to the influx of trillion of dollars in stimulus cash. What a bizarre scenario as the Fed prints cash and devalues the American dollar, the effects of which will be felt by virtually every economy in the world. Further, it is my understanding that only $150 billion of the nearly $3 trillion coronavirus relief package – a mere 5% – has been allocated to the 50 states and they are not allowed to use it where they need it most, to plug the holes in their budgets caused by the mandatory lock-down.

    Same question, with no vaccine or natural immunity built up, what happens when the lock-down is lifted and their population has no protection against a wave of infections?

    Two things about New Zealand, they reacted very quickly in implementing their lock-down which resulted in a very fast suspension of infections. The question for them is the same as for any country that chose lock-down, without a vaccine or herd immunity, what happens when the next wave(s) comes?

    The U.S., the largest of the lock-down countries and the one that the world depends upon, has had more than 30 million people, 1/6th of their workforce, file for unemployment benefits. My gawd that's a staggering number of people. Millions more workers have lost their employment but have not filed claims because of their immigration status or because they were self-employed, contract workers or others who typically are not eligible. Further, EPI estimated 12 million workers did not file claims because state unemployment claims systems were overwhelmed making it too difficult. Economists believe the real jobless rate is quickly reaching the record 25.6 percent at the height of the Great Depression. The U.S. economy, under this lock-down, shrank by a 4.8 percent annual rate in the first quarter of this year and it is predicted it may shrink at a 40 percent annual rate in the second quarter, a collapse without precedent. EPI further estimates that due to this lock-down 12.7 million workers have lost employer-paid medical insurance in the midst of the pandemic, the worst health crisis in 100 years, meaning countless families face the impossible choice of forgoing treatment or facing crippling debts. The economic fallout of this lock-down is spiralling upwards as deaths soar. Surely this is a disaster.
