    Haven't been around here much lately but I haven't seen this mentioned yet:

    As of today, anyone entering NY, NJ or CT from the following states has to undergo a 14 day quarantine:

    • Alabama
    • Arkansas
    • Arizona
    • Florida
    • North Carolina
    • South Carolina
    • Texas
    • Utah
    • Washington
    We were hit early and hit hard but thanks to good leadership and COOPERATION we've got our numbers under control and we'd like to keep it that way.

    Hey if you don’t test you can’t report new cases :rolleyes:

    Our state government will probably do their best to keep up the testing. Can’t speak for the rest.

    Model projects 179,106 coronavirus deaths in US by October 1

    Nearly 180,000 Americans will die from coronavirus by October 1 unless just about everyone starts wearing masks, new projections show.

    The latest coronavirus projection from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation shows 179,106 deaths by October 1 if nothing changes.

    But that number would drop to 146,000 if 95% of Americans started wearing masks in public, the model forecasts.

    The previous IHME forecast, published June 15, projected 201,129 deaths by October 1. “California and other states have seen over the past several weeks increasing case numbers, but deaths are not yet rising at the same rate, a trend which could change in the coming weeks,” IHME Director Christopher Murray said in a statement Wednesday.

    Latin America's COVID-19 deaths seen hitting nearly 390,000 by October

    The death toll from the coronavirus in Latin America is expected to skyrocket to 388,300 by October, with Brazil and Mexico seen accounting for two-thirds of fatalities as other nations in the region contain their outbreaks, researchers said on Wednesday.

    The region has emerged as a new global hotspot for the fast-spreading pandemic as deaths surpassed 100,000 this week and cases have tripled from 690,000 one month ago to 2 million.

    High poverty levels and large informal sectors - which mean many workers cannot afford to quarantine - have combined with overcrowding in cities and inadequate public healthcare, particularly in isolated rural communities, to hamstring Latin America’s fight to stem the contagion.

    Brazil is expected to exceed 166,000 deaths and Mexico 88,000, according to the forecast from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).

    Mounting clues suggest the coronavirus might trigger diabetes

    In mid-April, Finn Gnadt, an 18-year-old student from Kiel, Germany, learnt that he had been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus despite feeling well. Gnadt’s parents had fallen ill after a river cruise in Austria, so his family was tested for virus antibodies, which are produced in response to infection.

    Gnadt thought he had endured the infection unscathed, but days later, he started to feel worn out and exceedingly thirsty. In early May, he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and his physician, Tim Hollstein at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Kiel, suggested that the sudden onset might be linked to the viral infection.

    In most people with type 1 diabetes, the body’s immune cells start destroying β-cells — which are responsible for producing the hormone insulin — in the pancreas, often suddenly. In Gnadt’s case, Hollstein suspected that the virus had destroyed his β-cells, because his blood didn’t contain the types of immune cells that typically damage the pancreatic islets where the β-cells live.

    Yes. It looks that it's useful once, and only once the cytokine storm is already in action. Once the immune system response is worst than the virus itself. Then it makes sense the effects of Dexamethasone, a powerful immunosupressant and anti-inflammatory.
    But not before the cytokine storm begins, because on mild covid cases if you give them Dexomethasone, then you are immunosupressing the patient body defenses, and favoring the virus spreading into the body.

    "The findings suggest the corticosteroid reduced deaths by around 20 percent in intensive care patients receiving oxygen compared to the control. The results were even more pronounced for patients on ventilators, with the treatment reducing deaths by 30 percent.

    Importantly, the study also showed the treatment conferred no benefit in patients not requiring respiratory support. This affirms the immunosuppressive treatment as only useful for patients in severe life-threatening stages of the disease."

    Alberta COVID-19 vaccine advancing to human testing

    The Entos vaccine is DNA-based. Unlike a traditional vaccine which gives patients an inactive virus to teach the body to fight the real thing, a genetic vaccine supplies a DNA blueprint for battle.

    "[The DNA vaccine] just delivers the instructions so that the patient can make the vaccine in their own cells," explained Lewis.

    The Entos CEO said the method, named Fusogenix, has several advantages: stronger defence, a more stable vaccine and the ability to make a lot of product quickly.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/25/us/coronavirus-cases-young-people.html

    People in their 20s, 30s and 40s account for a growing proportion of the cases in many places, raising fears that asymptomatic young people are helping to fuel the virus’s spread.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/25/world/coronavirus-updates.html

    The C.D.C. said U.S. cases are probably 10 times higher than the official count, and the White House coronavirus task force will reconvene on Friday for its first briefing in nearly two months.

    The United States on Thursday reported more than 40,000 new cases. It was the second consecutive day with a record total.

    I posted this one on May 19th, but this was a mRNA approach to vaccine.

    Moderna Coronavirus Vaccine Trial Shows Promising Early Results

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/18/health/coronavirus-vaccine-moderna.html

    Also this one from May 20th:

    Immunogenicity of a DNA vaccine candidate for COVID-19

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-020-16505-0

    Labs are working on different types of vaccines and accelerating the clinical trials. The DNA ones look to be very promising. I think they will launch a good amount of different vaccines hopefully very soon.

    Wear a mask...the life you may save will likely be someone you love (or at least like a whole lot).

    I'm optimistic that it will happen as you say.

    Much as I kind of hate to say it, I think we 'needed' this pandemic, to get us smartened up and better prepared to deal with 'the big one', when it comes along.

    As we are now " back to " our elective doctor appointments, curtailed during March, April and, most of May due to Covid, one across the board Covid message rings out from all the doctors we've recently seen: Wear A Mask.

    When out, wear a mask, remember to social/physical distance, avoid touching your face and, wash your hands with frequency.

    Becoming infected with Covid can likely be minimized by wearing as often as possible a mask and trying to be in environments - as possible - where others wear as mask.

    We grocery shop at a grocery store where all employees wear a face mask and the store has visible high levels of sanitation - such as cart spray-downs between customers, conveyor belt wipe-downs,
    non-contact payment methods, acrylic panels between customer and cashier, hand sanitizing stations throughout the store, etc.

    The doctors and nurses we recently saw agree with our wearing masks when out and about - yes masks are awkward, uncomfortable at times and can be hot to wear as the temps rise - all of which are vastly preferable to a bout of Covid 19.

    Until such time as a proven vaccine is readily available, we will continue to " mask-up " etc when out.

    Hi All,

    Please check out the info published by the CDC - they make it clear as to what the risk is, who is at risk, and what they have data on to date.

    Here is (i believe) the latest briefing - https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2020/t0625-COVID-19-update.html

    but check the CDC.gov site, there is much more to read up on and learn.

    Best All,

    The states (and individuals) that treated this like a political issue instead of a medical one are now paying the price.

    For all of you who prefer truth more than propaganda (and enjoy lower blood pressure because you turned off the mainstream news) I encourage your rational minds to enter the driver seat of your human vessels and look at all of the information NOT aligned with the mainstream scripts.


    https://www.namepros.com/threads/co...in-the-mainstream-media.1196686/#post-7833195


    I check into Mr Funky's thread to see what the propaganda wheel has the masses repeating....

    95% of you in this thread have proven to be repeaters....

    Much appreciation to the 5% of the leaders who are awake!

    (In general about 90% of all humans are repeaters by nature, but WHAT is it that you are regurgitating?)

    Love you all

    ΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦΦ​


    PS There were worse pandemics in recent years - did the whole world shutdown then???? :xf.confused:

    oh and TOTAL mortality counts are not higher worldwide! (This is how epidemiologists actually identify new pandemics and health threats)


    But hey, who cares about facts when the mainstream media can replace all logic and intuition and be your religious gospel to preach to the world!?! :banghead::banghead::banghead:



    The time to wake up is now.
