One of the few pieces of good news this year is that the flu season has been exceptionally mild so far. While it’s great that we don’t have to face two deadly epidemics simultaneously, I have a question: Why is there less flu in 2020 than other years? Preview Open

Great link to an article on Watts Up With That – it goes over, in significant detail, how COVID deaths are being coded, and therefore counted. It’s worth reading for the background, but you won’t get a “this means COVID deaths are overstated by 3X” or the like. Instead, you get the correct answer, generally, […]

I write to rebut the claims of Dr. Genevieve Briand, a senior lecturer at Johns Hopkins who holds a PhD in Economics and recently released a study questioning the Covid death statistics. The paper was subsequently withdrawn by Johns Hopkins, quite properly in my view. Dr. Briand’s analysis is deeply flawed.

Misleading and erroneous analyses like these have serious effects. It led our friend iWe to author a post yesterday titled Covid – Just A Big Hoax?, which cited Dr. Briand’s study as supporting the assertion “that the total death rates HAVE NOT CHANGED.”

Our state tells us that, if we wish to have visitors from another household, they must “quarantine for 14 days”, or “quarantine for 7 days and have a negative coronavirus test within the past 48 hours”. Our State web site that supposedly gives you all the information you need to navigate the government edicts, nowhere […]

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome disputed reports that the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Israel met in recent days in hopes that the thaw in Middle East tensions is spreading even farther. As the CEO of Qantas Airlines announces all passengers on international flights will eventually need to be vaccinated against COVID to be allowed on board, Jim and Greg discuss why that’s a difficult policy to enforce and whether people will shut out from society if they refuse. And they discuss the Trump legal team parting ways with Sidney Powell just days after their much-discussed press conference.

Let us be thankful for Lockdowns WOW. ‘Asymptomatic spread is not a thing.’ https://t.co/TwF4A4ll5S.

If it were up to Zeke Emmanuel, were I to catch the coronavirus he’d probably just let me die. I am, after all pretty close to his cut-off date for saving old people who are ill. He might be skeptical about my receiving the vaccine, too, since it was developed under the Trump administration. Yet I am encouraged and excited about the prospects of this vaccine, and am hopeful that we can continue to get our arms around this disease. Our first responders and related occupations should be the first to get the vaccines.

Unfortunately, the vaccines for coronavirus have been so heavily politicized that I should have no trouble finding a place in line to get the vaccination; many people in this country want to take a wait-and-see approach to vaccinations since people like me might die from the vaccine. Or they are anti-vaxxers who object strenuously to vaccinations. Others are suspicious because vaccines are being developed under Operation Warp Speed, although the Pfizer vaccine was developed without government funds. Then you have the government leaders who are determined to make sure the vaccine fails. It’s difficult for me to believe that their resistance is all about Trump, since I’m fairly confident that he hasn’t interfered with the vaccine developers. But you won’t convince New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:

The government has sent states a data sharing agreement asking for information such as age, sex, and race of someone who gets the vaccine. While Governor Cuomo says the state will reveal that data, it won’t release the other details such as passport numbers and Social Security numbers. The governor believes that information would be used to deport undocumented immigrants, a claim the White House is denying.

I looked up at the electronic chart the resident had loaded on our workroom monitor. Sure enough, the patient’s problem list included ICD-10 code V95.43XS: “Spacecraft collision injuring occupant, sequela.”

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome growing evidence that coronavirus transmission rates are very low in the schools. Jim explains why the Trump campaign’s accusations of massive election fraud don’t seem to hold water. And they shake their heads as Barack Obama reveals why his Middle East peace efforts went nowhere.
