 新型コロナウイルスの感染を調べるPCR検査の体制拡充に向け、厚生労働省は26日、感染が疑われる人の検体採取を医師だけでなく歯科医も可能にすることを決めた。

 同日開かれた専門家による懇談会で方針が了承された。同省は具体的な運用を詰め、自治体に近く通知する。

 PCR検査は、鼻腔(びくう)などからの検体採取は専用外来の「帰国者・接触者外来」や地域の医師会が運営する「検査センター」などで、医師や看護師らが行う。検査は増加傾向にあり、1日最大9000件近く実施されているが、検体採取は医師法で定める医療行為に当たるとして歯科医は行えないと解釈されてきた。

 しかし、新型コロナの感染拡大が続き、検査の需要増が想定されている。懇談会は体制拡充に向け、口腔(こうくう)分野に知見がある歯科医にも担ってもらうことが急務と判断した。治療に当たる医師の負担減も期待できるとしている。

Saudi TV show for Ramadan sparks outrage with Hebrew opening monologue
The series covers the relations between Jews and Muslims in 1940s Kuwait, but has brought forth accusations against Saudi Arabia of normalizing ties with Israel.

A new Saudi Arabian TV series sparked a storm of controversy among Gulf states as the opening monologue of the first episode was spoken in Hebrew, N12 has reported.

The series, Umm Haroun – meaning Mother of Aaron – which deals with relations between Muslims and Jews in 1940s Kuwait, premiered during Ramadan – the most sacred month in the Islamic calendar.

Many new TV series debut during Ramadan as people are spending time fasting. This year many of the shows were canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, but Umm Haroun had already been filmed beforehand and was thus not affected by the cancellations, N12 reported.

"Before our footsteps go missing and our lives fall into memory, we will be lost to time," a Jewish character says in the opening monologue. "We are the Gulf Jews who were born in the Gulf lands," she declares.

The series was made by Saudi Arabia's state-owned channel MBC, the most popular TV channel in the Arab world, and boasts a star-studded cast of Saudi and Kuwaiti actors including the famous Kuwaiti actress Hayat al-Fahd, 71, who plays the titular mother of Aaron.

However, the show's promotional material had already provoked accusations from the Arab world that Saudi Arabia is engaging in normalization with Israel, thanks to the subject matter.

Traditionally, programs about Jews in the Arab world tend to be set primarily in Egypt and Syria. According to N12, though, the focus on the Jews of Kuwait and their relations with their Muslim neighbors is a new sight for Arab television.

A promotional video released by MBC says the series deals with the social relations that prevailed between Muslims and Jews in Kuwait during the 1940s. According to some historians, some 200 Jewish families lived in Kuwait during those years.

Several critics took to social media when some of the initial promotional materials were released to express their outrage over the series, claiming it portrays Jews as suffering from “injustices” in an Arab country.

“We have many successful and heroic women in the Gulf,” protested Hana al-Qahtan. “Why do we need to turn a Jewish woman into a hero in our dramas?”

Even Hamas weighed in on the controversy, denouncing the series as a “political and cultural attempt to introduce the Zionist project to Gulf society.”

According to N12, many believe Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is involved in the series, as the prince is interested in closer relations between the kingdom and Israel and could be signaling this intent to the Arab world through the series.

However, the backlash was not universal among the Arab world.

“Arab Jews are part of our history, whether in Egypt or in the Arab Peninsula, and this does not contradict our assertion that they were not expelled from the Gulf,” Yousef al-Mutairi, professor of modern and contemporary history at Kuwait University, told Al-Jazeera.net.

“The expulsion took place for individuals who were engaged in activities that the society was not satisfied with, such as trading in alcohol. We must differentiate between Zionism and Judaism. Israel and those living in it are Zionists. But there’s no problem with Judaism.”

Hawaii to Visitors: We’ll Pay You to Leave
Visitors who break Hawaii’s 14-day quarantine rule may get an unwelcome gift: A free flight home.

In Hawaii, the spirit of aloha normally greets visitors with warmth and welcome. Now, while the state has discouraged visitors by requiring them to self-quarantine for 14 days, that culture of generosity might extend to a free return ticket home.

With a $25,000 grant from the Hawaii Tourism Authority, the nonprofit Visitor Aloha Society of Hawaii (VASH) has instituted a Covid-19 flight assistance program to return travelers who don’t have the means to follow the mandatory 14-day quarantine — including paying for lodging and food delivery — required of incoming visitors.

Since launching the program on April 6, the organization has sent 20 visitors to their airport of origin, including travelers from Guam, Los Angeles, Birmingham, Ala., and Denver.

“The majority of travelers we have sent back in my opinion have been irresponsible in traveling to Hawaii during the Covid-19 pandemic when they know we are trying to keep Hawaii safe from the spread of this disease,” said Jessica Lani Rich, the president and chief executive of VASH. The organization normally provides visitor support, including translation assistance and help with funeral arrangements.

Open Up Society Now, Say Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi
Edward Peter Stringham
– April 26, 2020
https://www.aier.org/article/open-up-society-now-say-dr-dan-erickson-and-dr-artin-massihi/

Dr. Daniel W. Erickson of Bakersfield, California, is a former emergency-room physician who co-owns, with his partner Dr. Artin Massih, Accelerated Urgent Care in Bakersfield. They are experienced medical professionals who have 40 years of hands-on experience in dealing with viruses and respiratory infections. Watching the news in China in January, they knew the virus was on its way. They ordered many COVID-19 tests because they knew they would need them. They tested many thousands of people, and discovered for themselves what epidemiologists around the world are saying: COVID-19 came here earlier than previously believed, is more ubiquitous, and ultimately for the general population less deadly than we thought.

While this realization is gradually dawning on people around the world, they went public with their findings, which are not generated out of a predictive model but rather the actual facts of the case. In the course of their press conference, they addressed the question of whether or not California should have shut down much of its economy. Their answer is no. They conclude with the need to open up immediately, on grounds of health and human rights.

“If you’re going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights you better have a good reason, you better have a really good reason, not just a theory,” he said. “The data is showing us it’s time to lift (the stay-at-home orders) so if we don’t lift, what is the reason?”

Here are some selected quotes from their interview with a hostile reporter. The videos are embedded below.

We’d like to look at how we’ve responded as a nation, and why you responded. Our first initial response two months ago was a little bit of fear: [the government] decided to shut down travel to and from China. These are good ideas when you don’t have any facts. [Governments] decided to keep people at home and isolate them. Typically you quarantine the sick. When someone has measles you quarantine them. We’ve never seen where we quarantine the healthy.

So that’s kind of how we started. We don’t know what’s going on, we see this new virus. How should we respond? So we did that initially, and over the last couple months we’ve gained a lot of data typically. We’re going to go over the numbers a little bit to kind of help you see how widespread COVID is, and see how we should be responding to it based on its prevalence throughout society—or the existence of the cases that we already know about….

So if you look at California—these numbers are from yesterday—we have 33,865 COVID cases, out of a total of 280,900 total tested. That’s 12% of Californians were positive for COVID. So we don’t, the initial—as you guys know, the initial models were woefully inaccurate. They predicted millions of cases of death—not of prevalence or incidence—but death. That is not materializing. What is materializing is, in the state of California is 12% positives. You have a 0.03 chance of dying from COVID in the state of California. Does that necessitate sheltering in place? Does that necessitate shutting down medical systems? Does that necessitate people being out of work? 96% of people in California who get COVID would recover, with almost no significant sequelae; or no significant continuing medical problems. Two months ago we didn’t know this. The more you test, the more positives you get. The prevalence number goes up, and the death rate stays the same. So [the death rate] gets smaller and smaller and smaller. And as we move through this data—what I want you to see is—millions of cases, small death. Millions of cases, small death.

We extrapolate data, we test people, and then we extrapolate for the entire community based on the numbers. The initial models were so inaccurate they’re not even correct. And some of them were based on social distancing and still predicted hundreds of thousands of deaths, which has been inaccurate. In New York the ones they tested they found 39% positive. So if they tested the whole state would we indeed have 7.5 million cases? We don’t know; we will never test the entire state. So we extrapolate out; we use the data we have because it’s the most we have versus a predictive model that has been nowhere in the ballpark of accurate. How many deaths do they have? 19,410 out of 19 million people, which is a 0.1% chance of dying from COVID in the state of New York. If you are indeed diagnosed with COVID-19, 92% of you will recover.

We’ve tested over 4 million… which gives us a 19.6% positive out of those who are tested for COVID-19. So if this is a typical extrapolation 328 million people times 19.6 is 64 million. That’s a significant amount of people with COVID; it’s similar to the flu. If you study the numbers in 2017 and 2018 we had 50 to 60 million with the flu. And we had a similar death rate in the deaths the United States were 43,545—similar to the flu of 2017-2018. We always have between 37,000 and 60,000 deaths in the United States, every single year. No pandemic talk. No shelter-in-place. No shutting down businesses…

We do thousands of flu tests every year. We don’t report every one, because the flu is ubiquitous and to that note we have a flu vaccine. How many people even get the flu vaccine? The flu is dangerous, it kills people. Just because you have a vaccine doesn’t mean it’s gonna be everywhere and it doesn’t mean everyone’s going to take it… I would say probably 50% of the public doesn’t even want it. Just because you have a vaccine—unless you forced it on the public—doesn’t mean they’re going to take it.

Norway has locked down; Sweden does not have lock down. What happened in those two countries? Are they vastly different? Did Sweden have a massive outbreak of cases? Did Norway have nothing? Let’s look at the numbers. Sweden has 15,322 cases of COVID—21% of all those tested came out positive for COVID. What’s the population of Sweden? About 10.4 million. So if we extrapolate out the data about 2 million cases of COVID in Sweden. They did a little bit of social distancing; they would wear masks and separate; they went to schools; stores were open. They were almost about their normal daily life with a little bit of social distancing. They had how many deaths? 1,765. California’s had 1,220 with isolation. No isolation: 1,765. We have more people. Norway: its next-door neighbor. These are two Scandinavian nations; we can compare them as they are similar. 4.9% of all COVID tests were positive in Norway. Population of Norway: 5.4 million. So if we extrapolate the data, as we’ve been doing, which is the best we can do at this point, they have about 1.3 million cases. Now their deaths as a total number, were 182. So you have a 0.003 chance of death as a citizen of Norway and a 97% recovery. Their numbers are a little bit better. Does it necessitate shutdown, loss of jobs, destruction of the oil company, furloughing doctors?

I wanted to talk about the effects of COVID-19, the secondary effects. COVID-19 is one aspect of our health sector. What has it caused to have us be involved in social isolation? What does it cause that we are seeing the community respond to? Child molestation is increasing at a severe rate. We could go over multiple cases of children who have been molested due to angry family members who are intoxicated, who are home, who have no paycheck. Spousal abuse: we are seeing people coming in here with black eyes and cuts on their face. It’s an obvious abuse of case. These are things that will affect them for a lifetime, not for a season. Alcoholism, anxiety, depression, suicide. Suicide is spiking; education is dropped off; economic collapse. Medical industry we’re all suffering because our staff isn’t here and we have no volume. We have clinics from Fresno to San Diego and these things are spiking in our community. These things will affect people for a lifetime, not for a season.

I’d like to go over some basic things about how the immune system functions so people have a good understanding. The immune system is built by exposure to antigens: viruses, bacteria. When you’re a little child crawling on the ground, putting stuff in your mouth, viruses and bacteria come in. You form an antigen antibody complex. You form IgG IgM. This is how your immune system is built. You don’t take a small child put them in bubble wrap in a room and say, “go have a healthy immune system.”

This is immunology, microbiology 101. This is the basis of what we’ve known for years. When you take human beings and you say, “go into your house, clean all your counters—Lysol them down you’re gonna kill 99% of viruses and bacteria; wear a mask; don’t go outside,” what does it do to our immune system? Our immune system is used to touching. We share bacteria. Staphylococcus, streptococcal, bacteria, viruses.

Sheltering in place decreases your immune system. And then as we all come out of shelter in place with a lower immune system and start trading viruses, bacteria—what do you think is going to happen? Disease is going to spike. And then you’ve got diseases spike—amongst a hospital system with furloughed doctors and nurses. This is not the combination we want to set up for a healthy society. It doesn’t make any sense.

…Did we respond appropriately? Initially the response, fine shut it down, but as the data comes across—and we say now, wait a second, we’ve never, ever responded like this in the history of the country why are we doing this now? Any time you have something new in the community medical community it sparks fear—and I would have done what Dr. Fauci did—so we both would have initially. Because the first thing you do is, you want to make sure you limit liability—and deaths—and I think what they did was brilliant, initially. But you know, looking at theories and models—which is what these folks use—is very different than the way the actual virus presents itself throughout communities….

Nobody talks about the fact that coronavirus lives on plastics for three days and we’re all sheltering in place. Where’d you get your water bottles from? Costco. Where did you get that plastic shovel from? Home Depot. If I swab things in your home I would likely find COVID-19. And so you think you’re protected. Do you see the lack of consistency here? Do you think you’re protected from COVID when you wear gloves that transfer disease everywhere? Those gloves have bacteria all over them. We wear masks in an acute setting to protect us. We’re not wearing masks. Why is that? Because we understand microbiology; we understand immunology; and we want strong immune systems. I don’t want to hide in my home, develop a weak immune system, and then come out and get disease.

When someone dies in this country right now they’re not talking about the high blood pressure, the diabetes, the stroke. They say they died from COVID. We’ve been to hundreds of autopsies. You don’t talk about one thing, you talk about comorbidities. COVID was part of it, it is not the reason they died folks. When I’m writing up my death report I’m being pressured to add COVID.

Why is that? Why are we being pressured to add COVID? To maybe increase the numbers, and make it look a little bit worse than it is. We’re being pressured in-house to add COVID to the diagnostic list when we think it has nothing to do with the actual cause of death. The actual cause of death was not COVID, but it’s being reported as one of the disease processes and being added to the death list. COVID didn’t kill them, 25 years of tobacco use killed.

There’s two ways to get rid of virus: either burns itself out or herd immunity. For hundreds of years we relied on herd immunity. Viruses kill people, end of story. The flu kills people. COVID kills people. But for the rest of us we develop herd immunity. We developed the ability to take this virus in and defeat it and for the vast majority 95% of those around the globe. Do you want your immune system built or do you want it not built? The building blocks of your immune system is a virus and bacteria. There’s normal bacteria in normal flora that we have to be exposed to bacteria and viruses that are not virulent are our friends. They protect us against bad bacteria and bad viruses.

Right now, if you look at Dr. Erikson’s skin or my skin we have strep, we have stuff—they protect us against opportunistic infections. That’s why for the first three to six months [babies are] extremely vulnerable to opportunistic infection. Which is why, when we see a little baby in the ER with fever who is one month old, you do a spinal tap, you do a chest x-ray, you do blood cultures, you do urine cultures. But if you had a fever I wouldn’t do that for you. Why? Because that baby does not have the normal bacteria and flora from the community, whereas you do. I guarantee when we reopen there’s going to be a huge, huge amount of illness that’s going to be rampant because our immune systems have weakened. That’s just basic immunology.

Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. Do we need to have it, do we need to test them, and get them back to work? Yes, we do. The the secondary effects that we went over—the child abuse, alcoholism, loss of revenue—all these are, in our opinion, a significantly more detrimental thing to society than a virus that has proven similar in nature to the seasonal flu we have every year.

We also need to put measures in place so economic shutdown like this does not happen again. We want to make sure we understand that quarantining the sick is what we do, not quarantine the healthy. We need to make sure if you’re gonna dance on someone’s constitutional rights you better have a good reason. You better have a really good scientific reason, and not just theory.

One of the most important things is we need our hospitals back up. We need our furloughed doctors back. We need our nurses back. Because when we lift this thing, we’re gonna need all hands on deck. I know the local hospitals have closed two floors. Folks, that’s not the situation you want. We’re essentially setting ourselves up to have minimal staff, and we’re going to have significant disease. That’s the wrong combination.

I’ve talked to our local head of the Health Department and he’s waiting… for the powers that be to lift. Because the data is showing it’s time to lift. I would start slowly [open up schools sporting events] I think we need to open up the schools start getting kids back to the immune system you know and the major events the sporting events these are non-essential let’s get back to those slowly let’s start with schools let’s start with cafe Rio and the pizza place here… Does that make sense to you guys and I think I can go into Costco and I can shop with people and there’s probably a couple hundred people but I can’t go in Cafe Rio so big businesses are open little businesses are not….

Eventually we treat this like we treat flu. Which is if you have the flu and you’re feeling fever and body aches you just stay home if you have coughing or shortness of breath—COVID is more of a respiratory thing—you stay home. You don’t get tested, even when people come with flu a lot of times we don’t test them. We go, “you have flu. Here’s a medication.” You have COVID, go home, let it resolve and come back negative.

If you have no symptoms you should be able to return to work. Are you an asymptomatic viral spreader? Maybe, but we can’t test all of humanity. Sure we’re gonna miss cases of coronavirus, just like we miss cases of the flu. It would be nice to capture every coronavirus patient, but is that realistic? Are we gonna keep the economy shut down for two years and vaccinate everybody? That’s an unrealistic expectation. You’re going to cause financial ruin, domestic violence, suicide, rape, violence and what are you going to get out of it? You’re still going to miss a lot of cases. So we need to treat this like the flu, which is familiar, and eventually this will mutate and become less and less virulent…

I don’t need a double-blind clinically controlled trial to tell me if sheltering in place is appropriate, that is a college-level understanding of microbiology. A lot of times in medicine you have to make you have to make educated decisions with the data that you have. I can sit up in the 47th-floor in the penthouse and say we should do this, this, and this, but I haven’t seen a patient for 20 years—that’s not realistic.

If you’re healthy and you don’t have significant comorbidities and you know you’re not immunodeficient and you’re not elderly you should be able to go out without any gloves and without a mask. If you are those things you should either shelter in place or wear a mask and gloves. I don’t think everybody needs to wear the masks and gloves because it reduces your bacterial flora… and your bacterial flora and your viruses your friends that protect you from other diseases [if they] end up going away and now you’re more likely to get opportunistic infections infections that are hoping you don’t have your good bugs fighting for you.

大阪市の松井一郎市長が、新型コロナウイルス感染拡大防止に関連し、スーパーマーケットでの買い物について「女の人が行くと時間がかかる」などと発言したことに、ネット上で批判の声が上がっている。

4月23日の記者会見の中での発言だ。松井市長はこの発言について記者から、「性別関係あるのか」という趣旨の指摘をうけ、「我が家では」と補足もした。

市長「言われたもんだけ買うということになればね、男性の方が早い」

この日の会見で朝日新聞の記者から、スーパーでの感染防止策に関連する質問を受けた松井市長は、「○○君(記者の名前)が買い物行ったらいいねん。夫婦で行かずに。言われたもんだけ買って帰る、と。やっぱり、女の人が行くとね、それはもちろんなんだけど、色々商品とか見ながら『これはいい』『あれがいい』とか時間かかる。君やったら、『これ買うて来い』言われたら、そこ直接行ってぱっぱっぱって買うて帰るやんか、男のもんは。だから、男子が接触避けて買い物に行くというのが、それでもいいけどね」。

この回答に対し、時事通信の記者が「『女性は買い物に時間がかかるから、男性が行くべき』という風な(趣旨の発言だという)捉え方もできると思うが、真意をご説明いただけますか」と問うと、松井市長はこう答えた。

「言われたもんだけ買うということになればね、男性の方が早い、と。僕も含めて、あまりスーパーに出入りしていない方が、言われたもんだけ買ってこいと言われたら、とにかくとっとと行って、その商品の場所に行って、それをカゴに入れて、スーパーの中にいる時間は非常に短縮できると思いますんで。そういう人が買い物に行く方が『3密』は避けられるんじゃないかな、こう思います」

記者「ちょっと違和感」と指摘

この市長の説明に対し、時事通信の記者は「それは女性、男性に限った話じゃない気がするんですけど。『女性は時間がかかる』と言い切ってしまうのはちょっと違和感を感じるのですが」と質問を重ねた。

松井市長は「それはそうやね」と応じ、「我が家では、妻が買い物に行くと、色々商品手に取りながらやるんで、いいものかどうかってやるんで、時間かかる。僕は言われたら、そこへ直接行って、どういうもんであろうと手にとって、カゴに入れて、会計して帰ってくるんで、我が家では僕のほうが早いということですね」と、“自分の場合”の話であると補足した。

「古すぎる固定観念」とネットで批判の声も

この松井市長の発言に対しネット上では、「ど直球の性差別」、「『言われた物を』買って帰るならさっさと終わるわ。主体的に食材や日用品の要不要・献立を考えてるわけでもなく『言われた物を』買って帰るだけなら!」、「普段スーパー行かない人は言われたものでもすぐ買えないだろう」「古すぎる固定観念」などと批判の声が上がっている。

I have a modified hymn that I sing in a loud voice to move these indecisive turtles along, "Standing... Standing.... Standing in the middle of the isle sweet Jesus." It's rude and I don't win any friends but it's extremely effective. I've never had to sing more than one verse.

I have another song that begins, "Phone sluts..." to the tune of Born Free, that I use for those idiots on cell phones discussing the merits of every item on the shelves. Most of these idiots are trainable. It's just that nobody has ever tried.

the mayor is stating a fact, he is not inventing anything as men go to the store knowing exactly what they need, while women go to shop and shopping means taking your time maybe something catches your eye.

I did not shop the last 6 weeks in any store, however I was over the internet buying all kind of crap as well as dry grocery , lockdowns make you do that on top of being a very very high risk due to organ transplant.

Bought online a lot of seeds to grow, but I am not sure I want to have a garden yet, so when I showed my wife the article, she said the mayor should adjust to include online shopping.

Tongue-in-cheek take: Where's the lie, tho?

On a more serious note: advanced Western economies (including Japan's) are 3/4 consumption, of goods (and especially services). Japanese refuse to increase spending as they're very uneasy about the future and thus focus on saving. This has been going on for a decade or two and is why the Japanese economy is always at the brink of recession despite BoJ printing yen to the tune of 200% GDP.

The U.S.: gotta get consumption back on track, post-CoVid (assuming the authorities ever let the charade actually end). What if the U.S. consumer doesn't cooperate?

Oh, wait: niggers & shiny ******-tech reign supreme here, I'm sure the black sheeple will do their part and go even further into debt serfdom; that $1200 will buy a nice 66-inch assembled-in-Vietnam UHD TV.

YES!!!!!!!!

Women use shopping as a social exercise, men treat it is as a task to get done.

Every swinging **** reading this has the same experience, your mother sends you to the grocery store, you're back in 15 minutes with everything on the list and she is shocked. Why? Because your mother is female and they are incapable of doing that. Can't be done.

My favroite observation at the check out line is when the cashier is done. Men already have the correct money out, they've done the sums in their head, they know approximately how much it should be, they pay, get change, receipt, done, **** off.

Women....it always comes as a surprise to women that THEY HAVE TO PAY for the groceries, they're always caught off guard by this.....so then the ritual begins....fiddle with the purse, rummage around in there, locate the wallet, take out a few notes, spend the next 10 minutes trying to sort their coins to get exact change. Then the receipt comes and now would be the perfect time to reorganize their purse, which they proceed to do.



When you stand behind women in a grocery store line, you loose the will to live.

Women can shop as fast a man, my mom used to and my wife can......on occasion. But the whole experience is traumatic, they need days to recover. Going to a grocery store, buying what's on the list and leaving WITHOUT chatting to everyone and checking every isle and display out is painful to most women.



Serious, next time you're in the checkout line, watch the women. Watch closely, it's hilarious how consistent they are. The fiddle-faddling with their purse and wallet while chatting with the cashier, it's an entire social ritual. And the mock surprise they all fein when it's time to pay, like it's a shock.

This is how food is marketed. Put the bakery near the entrance to bathe you in good smells to whet your appetite. Put "goody" food displays at the end of the aisles. Put necessity items way back in the store so you have to run the gauntlet. Then put expensive candy displays near the checkout counters so kids can beg and cry for the over-priced "action" figurines with the candy. Damn sure they will get you to buy number of things not on your list.

They also organize what items they have up front depending on the dominant socioeconomic make up of the area. I don't generally go into a store unless there's something specific I'm looking for and adopt tunnel vision. Now, a book or hobby store, I can wander aimlessly about and probably end up buying something I don't need.

Shopping is psyops 101. All tricks M$Ms and politicians got from advertising are used by retail. The exercise is to make yourself impervious to marketing ********. On average, even when they are aware they are being manipulated, women score half as well as men. Just look at cosmetics. You can learn a lot from that racket.

“Osaka Mayor Ichiro Matsui told reporters on Thursday (Apr 23) that men should be entrusted with grocery runs because women "take a long time as they browse around and hesitate about this and that", Kyodo news agency reported.

"Men can snap up things they are told (to buy) and go, so I think it's good that they go shopping, avoiding human contact," the 56-year-old added.”

Long time back, at the time 45-year old me walked into a Babies-R-Us just after opening. I found a young lady clerk: 'Hi. I'm headed to a birthday party and should probably take a gift, although the real reaso for the party is for the adults to get together and drink".

Her: "Boy or girl?" "Girl".

"How old?" "1".

"Budget?" "20-25 bucks enough?"

She found something, and we walked to the counter to check me out. She said "I like it when men come in here. A few questions, they have what they want, and I can move on to other things. The Women take hours to decide".

So the Japanese dude has a point.

Yes, this is real.

Elderly women, in particular, are always chatting away, unconcerned about shopping,...

Yes, we have to talk to the people in the stores...which is hard to do now because everyone is so afraid that they're going to stroke out because they're in their 30-40s or the HIV-sequence is going to destroy all their organs.

Because this unbelievable lockdown...which just keeps going on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on...has prevented all human interaction. Look, I'm a homebody, but after six weeks of "Don't go out!" and "Watch out or die from the virus!!" and the pool's not opening...what the hell?

You betcha I'll talk to you. Had a nice chat with the cashier guy at 99 cent store. He thinks everything is BS.

Oh. And do I normally take a long time to shop? Yep. The woman in the house is usually the one who will evaluate price vs quality. Hell...we're not going pay any bucks for something which is essentially worthless. We gotta look at those berries. The fresh ones will be green and look young at the stem. You want a box of strawberries which look good on top and are rotten on the bottom? Come on. Women have seen it all. We know their games. You want fresh celery when fresh celery is available (most of the time not)? You gotta look way under the pile of celery to see the greener, fresher ones.

The shopper that drives me nuts (even nutser than I already am) is the person, either sex, gender, height, whatever, that lets the entire purchase get rung up, then suddenly remembers, “Oh yeah. I’m supposed to pay”. Then they fumble through their purse or wallet to find the debit card (and it’s always a ******* debit card or, worse, a check, with these assholes). Then they insert the card upside down or sideways or in any ******* direction other than the correct direction. Then they forget their ******* PIN.....three ******* times. They finally get their $1.99 Tic Tac purchase complete after 12 people in the next lane with $300 loads of groceries have checked out.

The worst are the ones that block lanes. You know the person; the one who gets their cart, enters the store and immediately stops, while searching in their purse or taking off their jacket while everyone else backs up outside. Or the one who parks their cart in an aisle and then stands parallel to it, causing a traffic jam. These same fuckers will look at you like they want to square off if you say, "excuse me." I have resorted to just pushing their carts out of the way. At least the look that you get is halfway justified, anyway.

No. Men are dumb shoppers. They grab the first thing they see and don’t follow a list properly.

women look for discounts, sales, coupons and they comparison shop between different labels and mind the ingredients using, sometimes, a tight budget. Women can manage to fit everything on a shopping list into a the budget whereas men forget half the things on a list and still go over budget every. single. time.

Remember the common denominator here is that the American feminist is always angry and screaming and aggrieved. It is what they are no matter what you do.

外国政府のある機関は輸出を認めても、別の機関が禁止することはしばしばあり、今回のような非常事態時にモサドの関与は効果的である。いろんな側面があるものの、結果としてイスラエルが必要とする物資を必要な量だけ確保できたのだから、これでいいではないかという立場。

Spy agencies and human rights in the era of coronavirus
Can the public’s right to privacy coexist with the government’s fight to curb the pandemic?
By YONAH JEREMY BOB
APRIL 25, 2020 16:28
https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/spy-agencies-and-human-rights-in-the-era-of-coronavirus-625577

The Shin Bet tells you when to go to the doctor, the Mossad brings you your medical equipment and NSO Group or some other private organization may hold on to your private information until you are coronavirus-free (and maybe even after?).

Do you recognize this world? It is a world in which government spy agencies and private organizations with alumni of those agencies are far more deeply involved in Israeli citizens’ lives and internal issues than ever before. It is a corona world where spying meets human rights.

Former Shin Bet chief Yaakov Perry told the Magazine this week that there “must be parliamentary oversight. This is problematic during this time. Yes, there are some operating Knesset committees, but there is not really fluid parliamentary oversight.”

The country “must reduce Shin Bet tracking when we are at the end [of the corona crisis] or even near the end of the crisis,” he added.

Of the three involvements of current or former Israeli intelligence agencies in handling aspects of civilian life related to the coronavirus crisis, the role of the Mossad would seem to be the most positive.

TO DATE, the Mossad has succeeded in bringing 10 million masks, hundreds of thousands of test kits (predicted to eventually reach around four million) and a variety of other medical items to the country in rapid fashion. Significant portions of the items were brought from moderate Sunni Arab countries that do not have diplomatic relations with Israel – at least one of the reasons the Mossad needed to be involved. Generally speaking, this is only a plus.

The government and the Health Ministry, according to numerous official reports, were inadequately prepared with enough medical equipment to cope with the crisis, and the Mossad stepped up to the plate to fill some of the holes. But some questions have been raised about involving the agency.

Some have said that the Defense Ministry could have done a better job than the Mossad as a larger organization with a larger permanent presence overseas. However, the most interesting major twist that has been raised about the Mossad’s involvement in purchasing medical equipment relates to tactics.

What happens when you move a spy agency used to bending laws, doing targeted assassinations and stealing Iranian nuclear secrets into acquiring medical equipment in a competitive environment? In an interview in late March with Channel 12 News, “H,” the Mossad’s project manager for the medical equipment acquisition efforts, seemed to admit that the agency had stolen some items from other countries trying to buy the same items.

The seeming admission was significant because there have been rampant stories in the global media of competition between countries, sometimes underhanded, to acquire scarce medical supplies to cope with the corona crisis.

In probably the most sensational storyline, six million masks purchased by Germany appeared to have disappeared into thin air at an airport in Kenya. Both Germany and France have at times accused the US of possibly intercepting purchases they had closed, though there are innumerable players in the arena to purchase medical items and no one has definitively accused a specific party of piracy. The Magazine has learned that H “misphrased” his comment.

It is absolutely true that there is a torrid competition going on between nations to buy up corona-related medical supplies anywhere they can be found before they dry up. H even described some of this competition in the Channel 12 interview. This included instances where Israel believed it had a done deal only to show up to pick up items at what it found to be an empty warehouse. In other cases, one part of a foreign government was ready to sell medical items, but the transport of the items was blocked by a different arm of the same government.

In this hazy malaise, the Mossad has used all formal and informal connections and tactics at its disposal to outcompete other countries in order to ensure that Israel not only gets into the ring, but actually ends up with the medical supplies physically in its hands for its citizens.

‘It’s kind of a rule of thumb’: Adviser reveals UK govt’s 2-meter coronavirus distance instruction based on ‘muddy science’
25 Apr, 2020 12:54
https://www.rt.com/uk/486881-uk-guidelines-rule-thumb/

The British public cannot be expected to just do as they're told by the government for long, since the guidelines are very disruptive and not as scientifically sound as officials make them seem to be, a government adviser said.

One example would be the instruction for people to keep two meters apart from other people to reduce the risk of infection, advice which was “conjured out of nowhere,” according to professor Robert Dingwall.

“There's never been a scientific basis for two meters, it’s kind of a rule of thumb. But it's not like there is a whole kind of rigorous scientific literature that it is founded upon,” he told BBC’s Radio 4. Evidence exists that observing a one meter distance would be beneficial during an epidemic, but even that “comes out of indoor studies in clinical and experimental settings.”

Dingwall acknowledged that in this case as in many others “the science is muddy” and doesn't point “in a single direction in quite the way that it’s represented as doing.” But his concern is that it would be harder to convince the public to comply with government advice, if the scientific basis for it is questionable.

“We cannot sustain [social distancing measures] without causing serious damage to society, to the economy and to the physical and mental health of the population,” he said.

I think it will be much harder to get compliance with some of the measures that really do not have an evidence base.

The interview, aired on Saturday morning, comes as No. 10 is grappling with a scandal involving Dominic Cummings, the chief political adviser for Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE). Cummings and a data scientist, who worked for him on the Vote Leave campaign during the Brexit referendum, attended a number of SAGE meetings as early as in January, a Guardian expose has revealed.

The presence of politically-affiliated figures at gatherings of a body that keeps the list of its members secret, and is supposed to provide purely scientific recommendations, raised awkward questions about how it had helped shape the nation’s response to the Covid-19 epidemic. Downing Street said Cummings and his associate, Ben Warner, did go to SAGE meetings, but were not part of it, contrary to what the newspaper implied.

Dingwall, who belongs to the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (NERVTAG), a body that feeds into SAGE, spoke to Radio 4 before the scandal broke. But he expressed skepticism about the anonymity of SAGE members, saying it makes it hard to judge their scientific expertise.

“There may be an issue with SAGE about the range of voices that are heard there. There is a slight tendency among eminent scientists to think that they can be experts on everything,” he explained.



Bar Dominic Cummings from Sage meetings, Labour urges
Party raises concerns independence of group advising ministers on coronavirus has been compromised

Labour has urged the government to stop the prime minister’s chief political adviser, Dominic Cummings, from attending meetings of the secret scientific group advising on the coronavirus pandemic over concerns that its independence has been compromised.

A leaked list revealed by the Guardian shows that both Cummings and a data scientist said to have worked on the Vote Leave campaign, Ben Warner, were among 23 attendees present at a meeting of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) on the day Boris Johnson announced a nationwide lockdown.

Various attendees of Sage told the Guardian that both Cummings and Warner had been taking part in meetings of the group as far back as February and had not merely observed but actively participated in discussions about the formation of advice.

Jonathan Ashworth, the shadow health secretary, said there were significant questions for the government to answer over the credibility of its decision-making and how non-scientists have influenced policy, calling for minutes of meetings to be made public.

“The concern is that political advisers have influenced the debate,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “So the way to clear this up is for all the minutes to be published … People have not got full confidence that the government is being entirely clear and transparent.”

Downing Street said Cummings and Warner had attended some Sage meetings and continue to listen to others now held online.

“Occasionally they ask questions or offer help when scientists mention problems in Whitehall,” a No 10 spokesman said. “It is factually wrong and damaging to sensible public debate to imply [Sage] advice is affected by government advisers listening to discussions.”

Ashworth, however, said this claim should be substantiated with evidence and that questions remain over key government decisions.

He suggested the UK was slow to go into lockdown and queried why large events such as the Liverpool v Atletico Madrid football game and the Cheltenham festival – attended by more than 250,000 people over four days from 10 March – had been allowed to go ahead.

Throughout the outbreak, ministers have reiterated that their policies have been guided by scientific advice, but the process has been shrouded in secrecy and the extent of political influence remains unclear.

In a statement, Ashworth said Cummings was “not a medical or scientific expert” and the government must make clear he can no longer participate or attend, “if the public are to have confidence in the Sage”.

The government’s former chief scientific adviser David King said party political advisers never attended Sage meetings during his tenure from 2000 to 2007 and that it was wrong for them to now do so.

If a political adviser is sitting on Sage “it’s a fair assumption that they are at least in part playing this role, one which it’s simply inappropriate and wrong for them to be playing”, he tweeted.

Prof Stephen Powis, the NHS England medical director, said he was confident that Sage had been a forum for scientific discussion among experts.

“It is the experts from a variety of backgrounds who discuss the evidence, they discuss the evidence base of the various topics, they come to conclusions around that evidence base,” he told the Today programme.

“It is then, of course, the role of Sage to advise the government. I have been confident that what happens at Sage is a scientific discussion involving the scientists and the experts who are members of Sage.”

The former head of the civil service, Bob Kerslake, however, said there was a risk “the government is leading the science when it’s supposed to be the other way round”.

It understood the chief medical officers and chief scientific advisers from the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have been allowed to take part in Sage meetings as observers. Unlike Cummings, they were not allowed to ask questions, having instead to submit them in writing in advance.

The editor the Lancet said Cummings’ attendance of Sage meetings would call into question the independent scientific advice that it is mandated to provide.

“If it is true that Dominic Cummings attended meetings of Sage, then the government led by Boris Johnson has utterly corrupted independent scientific advice,” Richard Horton tweeted. “But I’m afraid to say that the scientists who sit on Sage have allowed themselves to be corrupted”, including the chief scientific officer and chief medical officer.

コロナ致死率は統計よりも低い可能性 ニューヨーク

ほらほら、科学の知見に基づかない外出規制、行動規制、統計の嘘に対する批判に耐えられず、少しずつ主張を変えてきましたよ。

世界中で数十億人を家に閉じ込めておきながら、新型コロナが天然痘より危険な病気であるとする肝心の「科学の知見」は世界のどこにもないという世紀の茶番。

「コロナはこんなに危険」というイメージで騒いでいるのは、なぜか医学会ではなくマスコミである。コロナ危険派の医師ですら誰一人「コロナは天然痘と同等かそれ以上に危険(だから、既存のマニュアルから逸脱した、健康な人に行動規制を課す政策を国民に強いなければならない)」とは決して発言しない。「感染症を防ぐにはこうすべき」という表現方法に終始している。マスコミが作り出している集団ヒステリーだろ。誰かきちんと説明して。

イギリスでは、コロナを死因とした死亡診断書の組織的な大量偽造の指摘まで浮上してきた。

NY州の抗体検査で14%に陽性反応、公式統計上回る感染率
4/24(金) 9:35配信
https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20200424-35152892-cnn-int

米NY州で行った新型コロナの抗体検査で約14%に陽性反応が出たことが分かった

(CNN) 米ニューヨーク州のクオモ知事は23日、住民3000人を対象に実施した新型コロナウイルスの抗体検査の結果、これまでに13.9%に陽性反応が出たと発表した。

この結果は、新型コロナウイルスの感染が当初確認されたよりも早くから広がっていて、感染者の数も公式統計より多いことを改めて裏付けている。

抗体検査は州内で新型コロナウイルスに感染して抗体をもつ人がどれくらいいるかの実態を把握する目的で、外出したことのある住民から無作為に抽出した大人3000人を対象に実施した。

その結果、抗体ができていたのは州全体では13.9%、ニューヨーク市に限ると21%だった。

ニューヨーク州の人口は1950万人、ニューヨーク市の人口は840万人。つまり州全体で約270万人、市では約180万人がウイルスを持っていることになる。これは公式統計の数倍に上る。

米ジョンズ・ホプキンス大学の専門家アメッシュ・アダルジャ氏はこの結果について、新型コロナウイルスによる死亡率が、公式統計よりも低い可能性があることをうかがわせると指摘した。

「このウイルスは、我々が考えていたよりもはるかに広く拡散している」とアダルジャ氏は述べ、「我々にある程度の抗体ができているという意味で、一種の安心感を抱かせる」と話している。

SARS-CoV-2 Mortality Is Distorted
19.04.2020
https://southfront.org/sars-cov-2-mortality-is-distorted/

SouthFront offers a scientific-based survey providing an in-depth look at the real death toll statistics and the spread of SARS-COV-2.
1. The research issued by the Bonn University Hospital

The research issued by the Bonn University Hospital and made by the group of scientists including Prof. Dr. Hendrik Streeck (Institute of Virology), Prof. Dr. Gunther Hartmann (Institute for Clinical Chemistry and Clinical Pharmacology, Spokesman for the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2), Prof. Dr. Martin Exner (Institute for Hygiene and Public Health), Prof. Dr. Matthias Schmid (Institute for Medical Biometry, Computer Science and Epidemiology).

In the framework of the research, all residents of Germany’s Gangelt were tested on the existence of SARS-CoV-2 infection and antibodies to SARS-CoV-2.

Gangelt is one of the most COVID-19-affected German municipalities. It is believed that the outbreak was caused by the carnival held on February 15, 2020. After the event, several people tested positive for SARS-CoV-2.

Preliminary result: the existing immunity was determined at about 14% (IgG against SARS-CoV2, method specificity>, 99%). About 2% of people had current SARS-CoV-2 infection detected by the method of polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The overal infection rate (the presence of a current infection or antibody in the body) was about 15%. The mortality (mortality rate), based on the total number of infected people in the Gangelt community, is approximately 0.37% based on the preliminary data of this study. The mortality rate based on the total population in the Gangelt is currently 0.06%.
2. A new Epidemiological bulletin from German Robert Koch Institute

A new Epidemiological bulletin from German Robert Koch Institute – “Estimation of the current development of the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic in Germany” issued on April 15 confirms that:

“in general, it is true that not all infected people have symptoms, not all who has symptoms go to a doctor’s office, not all who go to the doctor are tested and not all who test positive are recorded in a survey system. In addition, a certain amount of time passes between all these individual steps, so that no data collection system, however good, can make a statement about the current infection process without additional assumptions and calculations.”

Meanwhile, April 18 Daily Situation Report of the Robert Koch Institute shows that 86% of deaths, but only 18% of all cases, occurred in persons aged 70 years or older. The median age was 82 years. Pneumonia was reported in 2,764 cases (3%). COVID-19 related outbreaks continue to be reported in nursing homes and hospitals. In some of these outbreaks, the number of deaths is relatively high. The current estimate is R= 0.8 (95% confidence interval: 0.7-1.0).
3. On 13 April, the German National Academy of Sciences, Leopoldina, published its third ad hoc statement on the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany (the group of 26 Prof. Doctors)

The statement, which supplements its two predecessors, describes strategies for a stepwise lifting or modification of measures against the pandemic, taking into account psychological, social, legal, pedagogic and economic aspects. The document recommends in particular the re-opening of classroom primary and lower-level secondary education as soon as feasible, giving priority to the former, with observation of hygiene and physical distancing measures.

The National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina takes a stand with psychological, social, the legal, educational and economic aspects of the pandemic, following key recommendations:

Optimizing the basis for decision-making: The data collection, which has so far been largely symptom-based, leads to a distorted perception of the infection process. It is therefore important to collect the infection and substantially improve the immunity status of the population, in particular through representative and regional survey of infection and immunity status.
Enable a differentiated assessment of the risks both for social and individual dealings with the corona pandemic, contextual classification of the available data is important. Data to serious illnesses and deaths must be compared to those of other illnesses and related to the expected risk of death in individual age groups. A realistic one. Presentation of the individual risk must be clearly illustrated. This also applies to systemic risks such as overloading the health system and negative consequences for the economy and society.
To cushion psychological and social impacts: measures taken for implementation intrinsic motivation based on self-protection and solidarity is more important than the threats of sanctions. Providing a realistic schedule and a clear package of measures for gradual normalization increases the controllability and predictability for everyone. This helps to minimize negative psychological the physical andeffects of the current stress. Firs of all, aid and support should be provided for high-risk groups, such as children, who are particularly affected by the consequences of current restrictions in difficult family situations or people who are exposed to domestic violence must be provided become.

There are more another recommendations in the third ad hoc statement of the German National Academy of Sciences that now are being implemented by German leadership.
4. New research from the United States

Group of authors from Stanford University, Stanford University School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Health Education is Power, Inc., The Compliance Resource Group, Inc., Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, Bogan Associates, 8 ARL BioPharma, Inc., Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory, Department of Epidemiology and Population Health, Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine measured the seroprevalence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in Santa Clara County and made some conclusions.

The data received and conclusions of the US team are well corresponding with the research of German Bonn University Hospital taking into account that the German research came out on April 9, and the American one on April 14, with the reasonable assumption that the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the German city of Gangelt began at least two week earlier (February 15, 2020) than in the American Santa Clara.

The US researchers estimated that under the three scenarios for test performance characteristics, the population prevalence of COVID-19 in Santa Clara ranged from 2.49% (95CI 1.80-3.17%) to 4.16% (2.58-5.70%). These prevalence estimates represent a range between 48,000 and 81,000 people infected in Santa Clara County by early April, 50-85-fold more than the number of confirmed cases. Conclusions. The population prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in Santa Clara County implies that the infection is much more widespread than indicated by the number of confirmed cases. Population prevalence estimates can now be used to calibrate epidemic and mortality projections.
5. More data from the United States

Between March 22 and April 4, 2020, a total of 215 pregnant women delivered infants at the New York–Presbyterian Allen Hospital and Columbia University Irving Medical Center. All the women were screened on admission for symptoms of Covid-19. Four women (1.9%) had fever or other symptoms of Covid-19 on admission, and all 4 women tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 (Figure 1). Of the 211 women without symptoms, all were afebrile on admission. Nasopharyngeal swabs were obtained from 210 of the 211 women (99.5%) who did not have symptoms of Covid-19; of these women, 29 (13.7%) were positive for SARS-CoV-2. Thus, 29 of the 33 patients who were positive for SARS-CoV-2 at admission (87.9%) had no symptoms of Covid-19 at presentation.

Our use of universal SARS-CoV-2 testing in all pregnant patients presenting for delivery revealed that at this point in the pandemic in New York City, most of the patients who were positive for SARS-CoV-2 at delivery were asymptomatic, and more than one of eight asymptomatic patients who were admitted to the labor and delivery unit were positive for SARS-CoV-2. Although this prevalence has limited generalizability to geographic regions with lower rates of infection, it underscores the risk of Covid-19 among asymptomatic obstetrical patients. Moreover, the true prevalence of infection may be underreported because of false negative results of tests to detect SARS-CoV-2.
6. Hypothesis and justification from a Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at the Milan State University, Italy

The real number of COVID-19 cases in the country could be 5,000,0000 (compared to the 119,827 confirmed ones) according to a study which polled people with symptoms who have not been tested, and up to 10,000,000 or even 20,0000,000 after taking into account asymptomatic cases, according to Carlo La Vecchia, a Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology at the Milan State University.

This number would still be insufficient to reach herd immunity, which would require 2/3 of the population (about 40,000,000 people in Italy) having contracted the virus.

The number of deaths could also be underestimated by 3/4 (in Italy as well as in other countries) [source], meaning that the real number of deaths in Italy could be around 60,000.

If these estimates were true, the mortality rate from COVID-19 would be much lower (around 25 times less) than the case fatality rate based solely on laboratory-confirmed cases and deaths, since it would be underestimating cases (the denominator) by a factor of about 1/100 and deaths by a factor of 1/4.
7. SARS-CoV-2 mortality in Italy

As for now, it is a well-known publicly recognized fact that Italy labels anyone who died with a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, regardless of the real causes of death, as the victim of the pandemic. At the same time, the objective fact is the increase of the overall mortality in Italy. According to Istat (Istituto nazionale di statistica), there is a general increase in mortality from all causes ⩾20% from March 1 to April 4, 2020 compared with the average for the same period in 2015-2019. Bergamo is at the top in the growth of mortality among municipalities, + 382.8% of deaths.

However, the mortality grew not only and not so much from the causes associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection.

A few examples:

Albino town: from February 23 to March 27, 2019 – 24 people died; from February 23 to March 27, 2020 – 145 people (SARS-CoV-2 causes – 30 dead).
Skandzoroshyate town: from January to March 2019 – 45 deaths; from January to March 2020 – 135 (SARS-CoV-2 – 20 dead).
San Pellegrino Terme town: March 2019 – 2 deaths, March 2020 – 45 (SARS-CoV-2 – 11 dead).
These numbers could be explained by the lack of SARS-CoV-2 tests in the specified period.

At the same time, the mortality from other diseases increased significantly in the comparative period of April 1-4, 2020 compared to April 1-4, 2019. The lack of transparence of the Italian system also should be noted. For example, on April 17, Istat said that at that moment it was impossible to draw any conclusions about the increase of the mortality in Italy in general (as well as in regions and provinces) from the data obtained by Istat for the first four months of 2020 and compare it with the same period in 2019. These graphs and tables show statistics:

8. SARS-CoV-2 mortality in Spain

Spanish Minister of Health Salvador Illa stated that every dead person, that tested positively to SARS-CoV-2, is considered as a SARS-CoV-2 death.

The mathematical model employed by the University of Carlos III in Madrid (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, UC3M) demonstrates that in the last decade in Spain, an average of 1,150 people die from all causes every day in March. According to the records of acts of civil status, from March 16 (the day quarantine began), the number of daily deaths from all causes began to increase, sometimes reaching 1,400 per day. From March 17 to March 30, 21,243 deaths were recorded in Spain. This is 5,398 more than the prediction based on the extrapolation of data from previous years. The forecasted number for the same period is 15,844 – 34.1% less. At the same time, the total number of deaths from whom SARS-CoV-2 during the period from March 17 to March 30, 2020 was 7,591 people. This is a consequence of the general recognition of SARS-CoV-2 as the cause of deaths regardless of the actual situation. In any case, there is no exponential growth of the overall mortality in Spain or Italy.

Conclusions

In this survey, we demonstrated the researches and approaches of about 100 eminent scientists from around the world. In general, they agree that the current statistical data does not reflect the actual state of affairs, and the publicly distributed media estimates of the mortality rate are at least incorrect, and do not correspond to the actual picture.

The actual number of people with SARS-CoV-2 infection or people that already passed through COVID-19 early-stage or without symptoms is several dozen times higher than the public numbers show.

This is primarily due to the approaches and scope of testing. The public numbers have little to do with science. This is, to a greater extent, either media or politically motivated data. You should also consider the factor of a special picture of the course of the disease, which affects medical statistics (RKI Epidemiological bulletins).

Accordingly, the real mortality rate from SARS-CoV-2 is 25-60 times less than the figures presented to us by MSM and a number of governments.

The number of people with SARS-CoV-2 virus, but without the COVID-19 disease or with a mild form of the disease, according to various estimates, ranges from 85% to 95%. This group, as a rule, does not fall into official statistics, as it is not tested, not hospitalized, and does not seek medical help.

The negative consequences for life and health of people from ill-conceived social measures can at times surpass the threat posed by SARS-CoV-2. There has been a significant increase in the mortality from diseases unrelated to SARS-CoV-2 already.

Countries, whose leadership works closely with scientists, consistently and quickly responds to changes in the situation and the emergence of new data, will receive a huge advantage in the post-COVID-19 world.

The current actions of politicians in a number of countries are difficult to explain with anything other than incompetence or deliberate actions to achieve their personal/clan political ambitions or promote interests of external actors.

'Totally Unacceptable': Danish Parties Furious as US Pledges Financial Support for Greenland
Europe
05:23 GMT 22.04.2020
https://sputniknews.com/europe/202004221079051217-totally-unacceptable-danish-parties-furious-as-us-pledges-financial-support-for-greenland/

While US President Donald Trump's attempt last year to purchase Greenland failed, Washington appears to be determined to further boost its influence over the world's largest island and the location of the country's northernmost airbase.

The United States is preparing a “substantial package of financial support” for Greenland, US Ambassador to Denmark, Carla Sands, has written in an opinion piece in the newspaper Altinget.

According to Sands, this will provide a renewed impetus for growth.

“It is our wish to cooperate with the entire Danish Realm to promote entrepreneurship and innovation and thus stimulate sustainable economic growth in the Arctic”, Sands wrote.

The US has recently set up a consulate in Greenland in hopes of becoming its preferred trading partner in the Arctic. Carla Sands wrote that the consulate in the capital of Nuuk will be the starting point for increased, daily contact with the Greenlandic people. She added that over the past year, an American diplomat had travelled around Greenland to exchange views and forge contacts with all sorts of people, students, business people, and representatives from both state and local government.

“Now that our diplomatic presence becomes permanent, we hope to be able to further deepen and strengthen the relationship between the US, Greenland and Denmark”, Sands wrote.

Additionally, Sands warned about an “aggressive Russia”, which is claimed to have strengthened its military potential in the Arctic, and a “greedy and polluting China”, and instead promoted the US vision of the Arctic, which, she insisted, was based solely on “transparency, cooperation, and democratic values”.

Although this evaluation is more or less consistent with that of the Danish intelligence community, as the Defence Intelligence Service has repeatedly mentioned Russia and China in its threat assessment, and the country's mainstream media, whose analysts and journalists tend to emphasise the “Russian threat”, the US plans were not received well.

According to the Conservatives, the US is “quite openly” working to undermine the unity of the realm.

“The US is quite openly working to undermine the unity of the realm. They have always been on a long leash, but there is a limit, and in the end they may not even be present in Greenland unless they put that agenda on ice. This is totally unacceptable”, Conservative Greenland spokesman Rasmus Jarlov tweeted.

USA arbejder helt åbenlyst på at underminere Rigsfællesskabet. De har altid fået lang snor, men der er en grænse, og i sidste ende kan de slet ikke være tilstede på Grønland, hvis ikke de lægger den dagsorden på hylden. Det er helt uacceptabelt. https://t.co/0wl1gpXvXP
— Rasmus Jarlov (@RasmusJarlov) April 20, 2020

​According to Social Liberal foreign spokesman and former Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard, Greenland is geopolitically interesting because of its location in the Arctic, as well as its natural resources, a phenomenon he described as “an explosion of interest in Greenland and the Arctic”. At the same time, he cautioned Greenlanders “not to be naive”.

“If Americans decide to give financial support, it's because they expect to get something in return. Greenland must decide whether they want to accept it”, Lidegaard told Danish Radio.

He emphasises that it is still difficult to relate to the message, as it is not clear what exactly it covers.

The liberal-conservative Venstre is more positive, but its Greenland spokesman Christoffer Melson also mentioned his reservations.

“It is my impression that it is Greenland's wish to attract business investment and develop the economy, but ultimately it is up to Greenland to what extent cooperation will be made”, Melson said.

Last year, US President Trump shocked Denmark with his proposition to purchase Greenland, an offer Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederikesen politely declined, explaining it was not for sale.

Despite enjoying a broad autonomy and being home to Thule, America's northernmost airbase, Greenland remains part of the Danish Realm. As of today, Greenland is heavily dependent on an annual subsidy of DKK 3.5 billion ($510 million). Prospects of mining and tourism remain hampered by a lack of infrastructure and highly inhospitable climate.

Russia Okays Unlimited Gold Exports Amid Corona Economic Fallout
Business
17:23 GMT 21.04.2020
https://sputniknews.com/business/202004211079045338-russia-okays-unlimited-gold-exports-amid-corona-economic-fallout/

Miners have hitherto been obliged to secure special permits for exporting gold bullion from the country, but now the procedure has been noticeably eased, as gas and oil exports have been crippled by the coronavirus crunch.

Russia will start issuing general licences to miners for free exports of gold bars, a government decree cited by the Russian media maintains, thereby easing previous restrictions that had required miners to apply for a permit for each and every bullion export.

The decision was made after months of lobbying by miners, at a time when oil and gas prices have nosedived in an unprecedented coronavirus-induced crisis.

The move enables miners to sell the precious metal directly, without turning to commercial - largely state - banks, which is understood to enforce the market infrastructure and keep up demand on the foreign market.

Until last year, all the locally produced gold was bought by the Bank Russia.

The country minted a total of 367.9 tonnes of bullion in 2019, which, given the current prices, may yield around 20.2 billion dollars for the national economy. Last week, gold prices soared to a record high since November 2012, according to data published by CME Group, the world's largest financial derivatives exchange. Gold futures traded at around $1,568.5 an ounce last week, following the US Federal Reserve’s announcement about its $2.3 trillion stimulus package aimed at containing the financial crisis.

Boy infected with Covid-19 ‘didn’t spread' it to any of his 172 contacts, raising questions about child transmission – study
21 Apr, 2020 13:34
https://www.rt.com/news/486458-france-coronavirus-kid-no-transmission/

A French schoolboy who contracted Covid-19 on a skiing holiday in February didn’t infect anyone else he came into contact with despite showing symptoms, a new study reports. It sheds new light on children as virus ‘vectors.’

The child had stayed in a ski chalet in Les Contamines-Montjoie, where British coronavirus ‘super-spreader’ Steve Walsh had also been vacationing. Walsh unwittingly exposed about a dozen of his fellow guests to the disease after picking it up during a business trip to Singapore in January, before traveling on to France.

A Public Health France investigation into the child’s case discovered that the nine-year-old did not pass it on to either of his siblings nor to anyone else, despite coming into contact with 172 people.

All were quarantined as a precaution after coming into contact with the boy, with only one from the group testing positive for the novel coronavirus. However, doctors ruled that the single positive case must have come from a source other than the boy, as the other 171 contacts had all tested negative.

According to the study, published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, the boy tested positive for influenza and the common cold as well as Covid-19 – and, though he passed the first two illnesses on to his siblings, they did not contract the coronavirus.

Epidemiologist and study lead author Dr Kostas Danis told AFP that the boy “attended three [ski] schools while symptomatic, but did not transmit the virus, suggesting potentially different transmission dynamics in children.”

France’s public health agency researchers believe the study shows that children “might not be an important source of transmissions” of coronavirus, as has been feared.

The news could point to the closure of schools not being as effective a measure in curbing the spread of the disease as had previously been thought.

However, doctors emphasized that children had just as much chance of catching the disease, but were likely to only show mild symptoms and, therefore, to be less infectious.

Real Los Angeles Covid-19 infection rate could be DOZENS of times higher than official count, study suggests
21 Apr, 2020 11:40
https://www.rt.com/usa/486434-los-angeles-covid-19-infection-rate/

The number of people infected with Covid-19 in Los Angeles County could be many times higher than official figures suggest, researchers say, warning that predictions and public health strategies need an overhaul.

Up to 442,000 adults living in Los Angeles County may have contracted the novel coronavirus, the University of Southern California has said after conducting Covid-19 antibodies tests on 863 people living in the area. These figures are “28 to 55 times higher” than the number of official confirmed cases known to the authorities at the time of the research in early April, the university’s statement says.

On Monday, the total number of confirmed cases among the population of roughly 10 million people in Los Angeles County stood at 12,300. The disease has also claimed 600 lives in the area.

Lead investigator Neeraj Sood, professor of public policy at the USC Price School for Public Policy, said that the true scope of the virus spread in Los Angeles was not known, since only people with symptoms had been tested and the tests themselves were limited. The new data suggest the authorities “might have to recalibrate disease-prediction models and rethink public health strategies,” he added.

On the bright side, the study results also might suggest that the mortality rate linked to the novel coronavirus could, in fact, be lower than estimated. “The results indicate a lower risk of death among those with infection than was previously thought,” Paul Simon, chief science officer at the LA County Department of Public Health, who co-led the study, said. He still warned that “vigorous prevention and control efforts” are still needed as Covid-19-related deaths continue to “mount.”

The results of the study have not yet been per-reviewed and a time may come when antibody tests face criticism over the high number of false positives. The researchers now plan to further test new groups of people every few weeks over the coming months to confirm the initial results and possibly to track the outbreak's progress.

America On The Brink? Shocking Images Show "Pennsylvania Militia" Rolling Up To "Reopen America" Rally
by Tyler Durden
Tue, 04/21/2020 - 09:40
https://www.zerohedge.com/political/stunning-images-suggest-america-brink-social-unrest

America could be standing on the edge of a revolution. Seriously, well, with National Guard troops deployed across the country, any uprising would likely be squashed.

We noted late last month that a "social bomb" was set to detonate over major Western cities. It was thought that the epicenter of unrest could begin deep within inner cities, such as those in Baltimore and Detroit, but that might not be the case.

It appears tensions are soaring among anti-quarantine protesters and state governments. The lockdown backlash started last Thursday in Lansing, Michigan.

Anti-quarantine rallies sprouted up across the country over the weekend, organized by right-wing groups that held rallies in Texas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Nevada, Maryland, Utah, Wisconsin, Washington, and Colorado.

Attempting to show force, some protesters wielded rifles, handguns, and shotguns, along with American flags, Betsy Ross flags, Trump signs and "Don't Tread On Me" flags right up to the doorsteps of some state capital buildings.

The sight is absolutely stunning, but before we continue, we must understand the right-wing groups that organized the rallies are fed up with quarantine orders enforced by state governments to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While it is open for discussion if the strict lockdowns were worth it, several things are evident, and why many of these protesters are angry, is that the economy has crashed into depression, 22 million jobs lost, businesses bankrupted, and hunger crisis unfolding. Combined this all together, and a perfect storm of unrest could be nearing.

While we could show you images of the latest rallies from across the country, that would be a bit too much. So, let's focus on the "reopen" Pennsylvania demonstration on Monday (April 20). The location was Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, more specifically, at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Complex.

The Daily Caller, citing AFP images, captured the moment when an M35 series 2½-ton 6x6 military truck, converted for civilian use, and packed with heavily armed protesters, arrived at the demonstration.

Seen within the rear of the vehicle, protesters were wielding AR-15s and shotguns.

Here's a video of the "Pennsylvania Militia" rolling up to the rally.

More pictures show the overall crowd at the steps of the capitol building, holding signs that read: "Free PA," "Tyranny kills," "Let America Work Again," and "We Do Not Consent."

Rallies to "reopen" the American economy unfolded across the country after President Trump tweeted: "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!," "LIBERATE MINNESOTA!," and "LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!"

President Trump is eager to reopen the economy and save it from crushing depression. The danger of reviving the economy too soon is that it could spark the second wave of the coronavirus.

With warmer weather trends expected for the US, anti-quarantine rallies are only set to increase.

Facebook CENSORS anti-quarantine protests in US as ‘harmful misinformation’
20 Apr, 2020 18:48
https://www.rt.com/usa/486371-facebook-zuckerberg-protests-misinformation/

Americans protesting their states’ coronavirus lockdown measures won’t be able to organize protests on Facebook any longer, after the Silicon Valley firm declared them “harmful misinformation.”

Speaking to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Monday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that anti-lockdown protests organized through his platform are considered “harmful misinformation,” and will be removed by moderators.

“I think a lot of the stuff that people are saying that is false around a health emergency like this can be classified as harmful misinformation,” Zuckerberg added.

President Donald Trump has left it up to governors to decide when to lift lockdown measures in their states, but only a handful have eased the coronavirus shutdown. Florida opened some of its beaches on Friday, while South Carolina intends to open some of its shoreside spots this week.

Protests have broken out in states whose governors remain committed to a full lockdown. Citizens in at least 10 states, including Texas, Washington, Michigan and New Hampshire, took to the streets over the weekend to vent their anger at the stay-at-home orders. In some of these states, a handful of gun rights activists led the charge in organizing the events on Facebook, the Washington Post reported on Monday.

Shortly before Zuckerberg’s TV appearance, CNN journalist Donie O’Sullivan reported that Facebook removed anti-quarantine events in California, New Jersey and Nebraska. The protests themselves are not strictly illegal, but the social network reportedly consulted with the state governments before siding with them and removing the posts.

Numerous media outlets cited Facebook as saying that the governors themselves asked for the removal. The spokesman for Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts, however, said on Monday afternoon that this was not the case.

Facebook has already taken a firm stance on what it claims is “misinformation” about the coronavirus. The Silicon Valley company announced last week that it would fact-check all posts about the virus and push World Health Organization updates into the feeds of people who have “liked, reacted or commented on harmful misinformation about Covid-19.”

Zuckerberg also revealed on Monday that Facebook has gathered a massive set of data on users who self-reported coronavirus symptoms, and will pass this data to governments to track the spread of the deadly virus. Though Facebook insisted it will not “interpret” this data, it has partnered with two universities to do just that, by combing through the information with artificial intelligence.

With protesters facing off against their governors and lockdown supporters, Trump has taken the opposite stance to Zuckerberg. Several days after firing off a series of tweets backing demonstrators in Virginia, Michigan and Minnesota, the president declared on Sunday that “some governors have gone too far.”

The protests continued as Monday wore on. In one Pennsylvania gathering, scheduled since last week, crowds of demonstrators descended on the State Capitol in Harrisburg, waving American and Gadsden flags, along with Trump campaign banners.

‘No mass exodus’: Most US firms don’t want to wind down operations in China over pandemic
19 Apr, 2020 15:14
https://www.rt.com/business/486246-us-firms-keep-production-china/

Large US companies operating in China don’t want to move production and supply chains from the country in the near future, even though the coronavirus may force them to adjust their business strategies, a recent survey found.

Around 70 percent of 25 firms with global revenue of over half a billion dollars have no relocation plans, despite the effect the coronavirus outbreak has had on their business, according to a joint poll conducted by the American Chamber of Commerce in China and the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai. The results of the March survey, published on Friday, also show that around 40 percent of the respondents would rather keep their long-term supply chain strategy for China unchanged.

While more than half of the firms polled say it’s too early to make any decisions on relocation, only four percent of the companies are planning to shift all production outside China, while 12 percent of the respondents intend to move part of their facilities.

“Companies are considering adjustments to their business strategy, but there is no mass exodus as a result of COVID-19,” Ker Gibbs, the president of AmCham Shanghai, said.

However, one in five respondents believes the pandemic accelerated the US-China economic “decoupling.” Compared to a previous survey, less businessmen believe an economic breakup is impossible, with the number falling to 44 percent in the latest survey, from 66 percent in October.

“Still, there is no escaping the fact that the current crisis adds a new and unwelcome dimension to the conversation about decoupling. This will be part of the discussion for months to come,” Gibbs added.

Washington has long tried to encourage American firms to bring production back home from overseas. The calls to ditch China in particular were stronger in the midst of the trade war, which was halted by the ‘phase one’ trade deal at the beginning of the year. The issue was raised again last week, as the White House economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, told Fox Business that the US could “literally pay” the moving costs of every American company willing to move from China.

As Coronavirus Depression Continues, Americans Are Putting Their Rent On Credit Cards
by Tyler Durden

https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/coronavirus-depression-continues-americans-are-putting-their-rent-credit-cards

Despite what the stock market would have you believe, the United States is sinking further into a depression. And the unemployed are now resorting to putting their rent on credit cards.

It's a temporarily solution that may help tenants get through a month or two, but it's ultimately driving an already broke consumer deeper into debt that will cripple them in the long term. About 84% of tenants in the U.S. have paid full or partial rent through April 12, the WSJ reports, a number that has risen significantly since the first week of April.

But credit cards as a form of payment are also rising by 13%, compared to the first three months of the year. The number of tenants paying with a credit card is up 30% when compared to the same period in March.

While sometimes tenants pay rent with credit cards to boost their credit score or earn rewards, this is increasingly looking like a desperation scenario, where credit cards could be the last fallback before tenants start filing for bankruptcy and wind up out on the street.

In general, electronic payments have risen since the start of the pandemic. Building owners will sometimes accept credit cards through apartment management software or third party apps. Even with interest rates near 0%, the average interest rate on a credit card is still in the double digits. It's even higher for those taking cash advances.

While some landlords and creditors have said they would make provisions for those who have lost their jobs, the credit bureaus will be far more unforgiving. They will be offering no special treatment, according to the WSJ, because a revision to the CARE act that would have prevented them from reporting negative information due to the pandemic was left out at the last minute.

Some landlords have offered to absorb the transaction costs related to using credit cards. “Once we saw where things were going with this pandemic, a lot of our rules just kind of went out the window,” one landlord said.

But if unemployment doesn't start to arrive by the time many of these tenants have to pay May rent, they could be faced with far more dire consequences.

Bruce McClary, spokesman for the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, said: “Your rent payment isn’t the only thing you owe, and chances are you have other financial commitments you’re having to keep on track as well.”

Over 22 million people have applied for unemployment over the past fourweeks.

ドクター・中松氏が工場建設、感染防止マスク増産へ

 発明家のドクター・中松氏(91=本名・中松義郎)が、感染拡大が進む新型コロナウイルス対策の発明品を増産するため、工場を建設していることが18日、分かった。目からの飛沫(ひまつ)感染を防ぐ初のマスク「ドクター中松 スーパーメン SUPER M.E.N」に対し、医療機関や関係者からだけで1日数十件もの問い合わせが連日あり、医療関係者優先で増産を進めているが、間に合わない状況。それを受けて、都内のドクター中松創研内で、工場の建設に踏み切り、工事に着工した。

【写真】新型コロナウイルス対策用発明品の工場「ドクター・中松コロシアム」

 中松氏は「発明の日」の18日、都内のドクター中松創研で日刊スポーツの取材に応じ「工場を建設中です。生産体制を上げます」と明かした。ドクター中松創研がある「ドクター・中松ハウス」の中庭「ドクター・中松コロシアム」には足場が組まれ、着々と準備が進められていた。ドクター中松創研は発明品を製造、販売してはいるが、あくまで研究所の位置付けで、ドクター・中松ハウスが2005年(平17)2月に完成して以来、棟内に工場を作るのは初めてだ。

 中松氏に工場建設を決意させたのは「大変どう猛な威力」と評する新型コロナウイルスの症状と「22年まで続くのではないか? との予測も出ている」と指摘するように、長期戦が予想されることへの危機感だ。

 中松氏は2月3日に、アルコールより毒性が低く、洗浄力と滅菌力がある「NAKAMAGIC(なかマジック)ウォッシュ」を発表したのを皮切りに、18日に発表した「安タッチ UNTOUCH」まで5つの新型コロナウイルス対策の発明を発表した。その中で、最も反響が大きいのが「ドクター中松 スーパーメン SUPER M.E.N」だ。透明板で顔全体を覆う溶接マスクのような形状で、目からの飛沫(ひまつ)感染を防ぐ画期的な仕組みが注目され、注文が相次いだ。洗って繰り返し使用できることも好評で、関係者は「作って出し、作って出しの状況。今は3週間待ち」と語った。

 購入希望や問い合わせが多いのは「医者をはじめとした医療関係者が多いですね」(中松氏)という。新型コロナウイルスの感染拡大が進み、感染症指定医療機関だけでは重症患者の入院を受け入れきれず、厚労省は感染症指定医療機関に加え指定期間以外での一般病床で対応できるところを探すよう求め、感染症指定医療機関以外の病院も患者の入院を受け入れている。そうした状況の中、ドクター・中松創研には「来週から患者を受け入れることになったが、用意が何もないから何とかして欲しい」という、医師の切実な声も寄せられているという。

 国内で広くマスクが不足している状況の中、政府はマスクの製造を促進するため「マスク生産設備導入支援事業費補助金」を設けた。中松氏は工場建設にあたり、コネクションがある政府関係者に同制度の利用を含め補助金、助成金を出して欲しいと打診したが、否定的な回答が返ってきたという。中松氏は「マスクには補助金を出すと言うが、助成金を頼んだら『ドクター中松 スーパーメン SUPER M.E.N』はマスクじゃないと。政府はお金を出さないのでね。自腹でやるしかない」と苦笑いした。

 「ドクター中松 スーパーメン SUPER M.E.N」発表後、一部で3Dプリンターで作った模倣品も登場している。頭にはめる枠を作り、そこにクリアファイルなどを挟むようになっているものが多いが、中松氏は「模倣したものが出てきているが重く、視界も確保しにくいだろう。『ドクター中松 スーパーメン SUPER M.E.N』は非常に軽くて、医師から長時間着けても疲れないという評判があります」と強調した。

 現在、生産ラインをどの程度、拡張するかなど、工場の建設は細部の調整をしている段階だ。中松氏は「自腹です。時間もかかるが、着実にやっていく」と決意を口にした。
