Sunlight Inactivates Coronavirus 8 Times Faster Than Predicted. We Need to Know Why. A team of scientists is calling for greater research into how sunlight inactivates SARS-CoV-2 after realizing there's a glaring discrepancy between the most recent theory and experimental results.
UC Santa Barbara mechanical engineer Paolo Luzzatto-Fegiz and colleagues noticed the virus was inactivated as much as eight times faster in experiments than the most recent theoretical model predicted. "The theory assumes that inactivation works by having UVB hit the RNA of the virus, damaging it," explained Luzzatto-Fegiz. But the discrepancy suggests there's something more going on than that, and figuring out what this is may be helpful for managing the virus. UV light, or the ultraviolet part of the spectrum, is easily absorbed by certain nucleic acid bases in DNA and RNA, which can cause them to bond in ways that are hard to fix.
But not all UV light is the same. But this type of UV doesn't usually come into contact with Earth's surface, thanks to the ozone layer. Post-lockdown SARS-CoV-2 nucleic acid screening in nearly ten million residents of Wuhan, China. Study population and ethical approvals Wuhan has about 11 million residents in total, with seven urban and eight suburban districts.
Residents are living in 7280 residential communities (or residential enclosures, “xiao-qu” in Chinese), and each residential community could be physically isolated from other communities for preventing transmission of COVID-19. The screening programme recruited residents (including recovered COVID-19 patients) currently living in Wuhan who were aged ≥6 years (5,162,960 males, 52.2%). All participants provided written or verbal informed consent after reading a statement that explained the purpose of the testing. Effectiveness of Adding a Mask Recommendation to Other Public Health Measures to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Danish Mask Wearers: A Randomized Controlled Trial: Annals of Internal Medicine: Vol 174, No 3. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), has infected more than 54 million persons (1, 2).
Measures to impede transmission in health care and community settings are essential (3). The virus is transmitted person-to-person, primarily through the mouth, nose, or eyes via respiratory droplets, aerosols, or fomites (4, 5). It can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours (6), and touching a contaminated surface followed by face touching is another possible route of transmission (7). Face masks are a plausible means to reduce transmission of respiratory viruses by minimizing the risk that respiratory droplets will reach wearers' nasal or oral mucosa. Face masks are also hypothesized to reduce face touching (8, 9), but frequent face and mask touching has been reported among health care personnel (10). Cui Bono?

Niels Harrit PhD SUMMARY: If inoculation can be used as verification of the Corman-Drosten RT-PCR test for Covid-19, about 50% of the positive results reported must be considered false when a maximum of 35 cycles are applied.
If only 25 cycles are applied the fraction of false positives drops to 20%. WATCH: Ice Age Farmer on the Bossche letter. Old Mortality: How the Corona Coup Tortures the Elderly – and Everybody Else. Michael Lesher I want to report a crime.

If You Absolutely Must Vaccinate Against Covid-19 Out of Fear or Coercion, Hold Out for This Already Proven Vaccine. There is a reason why vaccine makers and bought-off politicians are racing to vaccinate 100 million Americans by July 4th.
If prior population studies are any indication, by July 2021 it is likely a safer and more effective vaccine than RNA vaccines (Pfizer/Moderna) will be revealed in a large-group placebo vs inoculum study taking place in Canada. If you are in torment over whether to vaccinate against COVID-19 or not, or forced to mull over vaccination because your employer demands you submit to immunization as a condition of employment, hold on, at least till July 2021, when the results of a major vaccine study will likely be revealed. Lockdown One Year On – It doesn’t work, it never worked & it wasn’t supposed to work. Kit Knightly And so we come to March 23rd, and lockdown’s first birthday. Or, as we call it here, the longest two weeks in history. 1 year. 12 calendar months. 365 increasingly gruelling days. It’s a long time since “2 weeks to flatten the curve”, became an obvious lie.
Sometime in July it turned into a sick joke. …and none of it made any difference. This was not a sacrifice for the “greater good”. Because Lockdowns don’t work. Portentous Sign: Covid Cases Spike in a Dozen States With High Vaccination Rates, Which May Signal a Feared Health Catastrophe.

Seriously, who really cares? Some interesting reports that had slipped under the radar are now in full sight! The Curious Case of Geert Vanden Bossche. Rosemary Frei, via her website On March 6, an open letter by Geert Vanden Bossche, PhD, DVM, and a video interview of him by Phillip McMillan, MD, from a company called Vejon Health, were posted online. On the surface, Vanden Bossche appears to perhaps be addressing credible concerns about Covid. He’s saying that the current crop of Covid vaccines will cause the novel coronavirus to mutate into a “super-infectious virus.” And therefore he’s calling for an immediate halt of the use of the current vaccines. If humans are “committed to perpetuating our species, we have no choice but to eradicate these highly infectious viral variants” via “large vaccination campaigns,” Vanden Bossche claims at the conclusion of his open letter.
However, Vanden Bossche bases his views on unproven hypotheses. Florida Attempts To Increase Vaccinations By Leaving Loose Syringes Around Beaches. TALLAHASSEE, FL—In an effort to overcome vaccine hesitancy and reduce spread of the coronavirus, Florida announced a new program Monday that aims to increase immunizations by scattering hundreds of thousands of loose hypodermic needles on beaches throughout the state. “In order to reach Floridians who have refused inoculation, we will be hiding syringes filled with the Covid vaccine across Miami Beach, Cocoa Beach, Henderson Beach State Park, Key West, and other highly trafficked spots along our shoreline,” said Gov. Ron DeSantis, who noted that state health officials had worked around the clock to implement the plan before spring break, burying the needles beneath thin layers of sand or positioning them so they poke out between the planks of a boardwalk.
The Cop-Out of “Follow the Science” — The New Atlantis. The coronavirus pandemic has been a disaster in nearly every respect. As I write this, half a million Americans have died from the disease, ten times as many as died from flu and pneumonia in 2019. Many who recover continue to suffer mysterious, lingering symptoms. The harsh restrictions imposed on us have been devastating to workers, small businesses, mental health, and students, particularly children and teens. The Mainstream Bubble.

Why did things go so wrong in Sweden?

A Massive Global Hunt for Variants Is Under Way. Without sequencing, we might have seen mysterious new surges or reinfections, only to speculate wildly and retrospectively about why; now scientists can trace these epidemiological trends to letter-by-letter changes in the coronavirus’s genetic code—and do it fast enough to influence policy, potentially slowing the variants before they take over. No Safety Data? No Problem! Rosemary Frei, via her website On March 4 and 5, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Switzerland and Singapore released identical guidelines for fast-tracking release onto the market of vaccines for the new variants.
In 2018, Diplomats Warned of Risky Coronavirus Experiments in a Wuhan Lab. No One Listened. In the spring of 2020, inside the U.S. government, some officials began to see and collect evidence of a different, perhaps more troubling theory—that the outbreak had a connection to one of the laboratories in Wuhan, among them the WIV, a world leading center of research on bat coronaviruses. To some inside the government, the name of the laboratory was familiar. Its research on bat viruses had already drawn the attention of U.S. diplomats and officials at the Beijing Embassy in late 2017, prompting them to alert Washington that the lab’s own scientists had reported “a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.” But their cables to Washington were ignored.
