Lockdown Lunacy: the thinking person's guide — j.b. handley blog

In Most Places, the Data Say No.” They explain: We ran a simple one-variable correlation of deaths per million and days to shutdown, which ranged from minus-10 days (some states shut down before any sign of Covid-19) to 35 days for South Dakota, one of seven states with limited or no shutdown. The correlation coefficient was 5.5%—so low that the engineers I used to employ would have summarized it as “no correlation” and moved on to find the real cause of the problem. Translation: something other than lockdowns must explain the course of the virus (see Fact #14). Our results show a general decay trend in the growth rates and reproduction numbers two to three weeks before the full lockdown policies would be expected to have visible effects. And, the clincher: Dr. Rand Paul Shreds Fauci for Treating Americans Like Sheep, Says To Tell Americans Truth About COVID.

Bette Midler slams 'demented' people who refuse to wear masks

The “Hocus Pocus” actress took to Twitter to take a jab at people who are refusing to put on a mask despite many health experts saying that it’s necessary to curtail the spread of the coronavirus as the nation sees a spike in confirmed cases. “It’s not the leadership. It’s the people,” Midler tweeted on Tuesday. She followed that tweet up the next day with one that mocked President Donald Turmp’s use of “bigly” and warned that more coronavirus cases could lead to even greater harm to the economy than it already has. “The leadership sucks bigly, but people refusing to wear masks as a ‘political statement’ is just demented,” she wrote.

Dr Fauci tells BBC covid surge result of US not going far enough on lockdown efforts

Anthony Fauci has partially blamed mostly rural states such as North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Utah for the coronavirus’s continued spread in America. According to his dubious logic, the refusal by such states to implement economically devastating lockdown measures amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has allowed the virus to spread quicker and further than it would have. “In the United States, even in the most strict lockdown, only about 50 percent of the country was locked down. That allowed the perpetuation of the outbreak that we never did get under very good control,” he said Thursday in an interview with BBC Radio.

Schools that do not have the space to social distance will be required to open with a staggered schedule and mandatory face masks. “We know the sheer logistical challenges with schools that were overcrowded before the coronavirus and now have to practice social distancing,” de Blasio added. The Hill reports: De Blasio and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) have frequently sparred over which one of them has jurisdiction over school closures, with Cuomo announcing the decision rested with the state after de Blasio said in April that schools would be closed for the remainder of the school year.

Michael Mulgrew, president of the United Federation of Teachers, told Bloomberg the union will not go along with de Blasio's plan unless he can guarantee it will not result in further outbreaks of the virus.

Eight members of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) expert COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel disclosed recent financial relationships with Gilead, the drugmaker that is introducing an expensive Coronavirus competitor to Hydroxychloroquine, the inexpensive anti-malarial drug that President Trump has promoted which many people claim has helped them.

Expert: COVID19 Has Fizzled Out, No Vaccine Needed. Published on June 30, 2020 Written by Ethan Huff A professor and infectious disease expert from Italy says that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is already fizzling out, and that a vaccine for it will probably already be obsolete by the time it arrives. Matteo Bassetti, head of the infectious disease unit at the Policlinico San Martino Hospital in Italy told the British media that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, as it is also called, is rapidly losing virulence and could disappear completely without any further intervention. Since the novel virus is already showing signs of decline in terms of infection severity, it is only a matter of time before it becomes a non-issue entirely, with no vaccine necessary.

“The clinical impression I have is that the virus is changing in severity,” he told The Telegraph (UK). “Now, in the past four weeks, the picture has completely changed in terms of patterns.
