"We included the protections for those within our communities of color who historically, and often personally, found themselves the victims of harassment and violence," the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners and County Management team said in a statement Wednesday evening. "We are shocked and appalled at the volume of horrifically racist commentary we have received regarding this policy exemption." >The exception, local officials said, was well-intentioned — a way for people worried about racial profiling to avoid that by having the option to not wear a mask, Lincoln County Commission spokesman Casey Miller. “I thought it was mindfully crafted,” he said. “The focus of the directive was really on the health aspect." https://web.archive.org/web/20200626055830/https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/06/25/oregon-coronavirus-lincoln-county-mask-ordinance-covid-19/3256078001/

She's back U.S. Hits Record 40K Coronavirus Cases In One Day >The latest: Some leaders are reimplementing closures after five states also hit record number of cases in a single day. >ACROSS AMERICA — The United States broke its own record yet again when states reported the highest number of new coronavirus cases in a single day. On Friday, coronavirus infections surged to all-time one-day high of 40,000. >The record comes just two days after 36,000 new infections were reported by state health departments, surpassing the previous single-day record of 34,203 set on April 25. On average, newly reported cases per day have increased about 60 percent over the past two weeks, according to an Associated Press analysis. The United States has the most infections and deaths by far in the world. As of Friday evening, the United States had recorded more than 2.4 million coronavirus cases and nearly 125,000 deaths. >The troubling spike in cases is prompting some governors to hit pause on reopening their state economies. In some cases, leaders are actually backtracking by reimplementing bans and closures that were lifted just weeks ago. >In Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott ordered all bars closed, while Florida banned alcohol at such establishments. Texas reported more than 17,000 new cases in the past three days, with a record high of nearly 6,000 on Thursday. In Florida, under Gov. Ron DeSantis, the agency that regulates bars acted after the daily number of new cases neared 9,000, almost doubling the record set just two days earlier. >California has broken several of its own daily records for the number of positive tests, and hospitalizations have risen by more than 30 percent in the past two weeks, AP reported. And in Arizona, Republican Gov. Doug Ducey suspended further easing of restrictions in the state, which has been seeing more than 3,000 new cases a day. >Health experts have said a disturbingly large number of cases are being seen among young people who are going out again, often without wearing masks or observing other social distancing rules, according to The Associated Press. "It is clear that the rise in cases is largely driven by certain types of activities, including Texans congregating in bars," Abbott said. >The White House coronavirus task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, held its first briefing in nearly two months Friday. There was no presidential appearance and no White House backdrop as members acknowledged the surge in new cases across the South and West. During the briefing, Pence gave assurances that the U.S. is "in a much better place" than it was two months ago. He said the country has more medical supplies on hand, a smaller share of patients being hospitalized, and daily deaths totals that are much lower than they were in the spring. https://archive.is/aPTMM Europe will bar Americans traveling from the US as the coronavirus pandemic spirals out of control in the states >European Union officials confirmed on Friday that the EU would bar American travelers when it reopens its external borders on July 1, The New York Times reported. The US is among dozens of countries deemed too risky because their coronavirus outbreaks are poorly contained, according to The Times. >Travelers from more than 12 countries outside the bloc will, however, be allowed to enter starting July 1. The full list of safe countries includes Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay, Andorra, San Marino, Monaco, and the Vatican, according to The Times. China will also be included, as long as China allows European Union visitors. >The list has been finalized and will be released officially next week, The Times reported. Reports of the list emerged earlier this week. According to The Times, the list has been backed by most countries' EU ambassadors but still must be formalized by member states and the central EU government. While member states will not be legally required to abide by the list, those that do not could see other EU states close their borders to them, which would inhibit their participation in the EU's recovering economy. >Some countries with economies that are especially dependent on tourism are expected to allow more foreigners by implementing health-screening protocols for arriving visitors. Exceptions will be granted for essential workers, including healthcare workers and diplomats, as well as students, asylum seekers, and others, The Times reported. >The inclusion of the US on the list of banned countries represents a major blow to America's image on the global stage and undermines the Trump administration's claims that the US outbreak is under control. The US has recorded more than 2.4 million coronavirus cases and 124,000 deaths, more than any other country. https://archive.is/uEsZX

China: Our vaccine doesn't work, but you should take it anyway. >China's chief epidemiologist says coronavirus vaccine not 'cure-all' >Wu Zunyou (吳尊友), chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control (CDC), on Friday (June 26) cautioned that a coronavirus vaccine might not be a "cure-all" solution to the pandemic — as many are anticipating. >In an interview with China Youth Daily, the senior medical expert pointed out that a vaccine is being seen as a solution, but that it might not be permanent. He added the more he learns about the unusual structure and high mutation rate of COVID-19, the less optimistic he feels about the situation. >Wu explained that both SARS and MERS are caused by novel coronaviruses, against which scientists have been unable to develop licensed vaccines. He said recent studies showed COVID-19 antibodies in recovered patients can plummet within two to three months, which suggests that vaccines designed to encourage antibodies may also be ineffective. >Wu noted that it was not clear that antibodies produced to fight off the virus would provide any protection against re-infection, while the short-lasting antibodies would mean people had to be regularly vaccinated. He stressed that if recovered patients were not immune to COVID-19, then he would not expect vaccines to make much of a difference, reported ETtoday. >Despite his doubts, the CDC head said he remained hopeful that vaccines could prevent coronavirus from infecting people more than once. He also revealed that a COVID-19 vaccine may be produced by the end of this year or the start of next, reported CNA. https://archive.is/TovsI

Airborne AIDS hits the mainstream: >How the Coronavirus Short-Circuits the Immune System >In a disturbing parallel to H.I.V., the coronavirus can cause a depletion of important immune cells, recent studies found. >At the beginning of the pandemic, the coronavirus looked to be another respiratory illness. But the virus has turned out to affect not just the lungs, but the kidneys, the heart and the circulatory system — even, somehow, our senses of smell and taste. >Now researchers have discovered yet another unpleasant surprise. In many patients hospitalized with the coronavirus, the immune system is threatened by a depletion of certain essential cells, suggesting eerie parallels with H.I.V. The findings suggest that a popular treatment to tamp down the immune system in severely ill patients may help a few, but could harm many others. The research offers clues about why very few children get sick when they are infected, and hints that a cocktail of drugs may be needed to bring the coronavirus under control, as is the case with H.I.V. >Growing research points to “very complex immunological signatures of the virus,” said Dr. John Wherry, an immunologist at the University of Pennsylvania whose lab is taking a detailed look at the immune systems of Covid-19 patients. In May, Dr. Wherry and his colleagues posted online a paper showing a range of immune system defects in severely ill patients, including a loss of virus-fighting T cells in parts of the body. >In a separate study, the investigators identified three patterns of immune defects, and concluded that T cells and B cells, which help orchestrate the immune response, were inactive in roughly 30 percent of the 71 Covid-19 patients they examined. None of the papers have yet been published or peer reviewed. Researchers in China have reported a similar depletion of T cells in critically ill patients, Dr. Wherry noted. But the emerging data could be difficult to interpret, he said — “like a Rorschach test.” http://archive.is/xUVPF San Antonio Broadcasts New Lockdown Alert >San Antonio issues ‘stay home’ alert as 795 COVID-19 cases reported Saturday, a daily high >Alert urges people to stay home, wear face coverings >SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio officials urged residents to stay home as the city recorded its highest number of cases in a single day. >An emergency alert was sent out just minutes after the city reported 795 new COVID-19 cases. That brings the city’s total number of cases to 9,652. >Two new deaths were reported, and the death toll is now at 107. >The Wireless Emergency Alert, similar to an Amber Alert, urges residents to stay home, wear face coverings, practice social distancing, and avoid gathering with people outside of your household. >“This action is reserved only for emergencies, and we have clearly reached emergency status,” Mayor Ron Nirenberg said in a news release. “We need every person in San Antonio and Bexar County to take this crisis seriously and behave accordingly to slow the exponential growth of the virus.” >In San Antonio, there are currently 984 available staffed beds and 449 ventilators, or 21% of beds and 66% of ventilators. http://archive.is/i1ukd

>>3444 Masses of Indians are Worshipping Corona-Chan >Coronavirus is Now a Deity in Many Indian Villages, Being Worshipped with Flowers and Sweets >In Uttar Pradesh, women in some villages in Tumkuhiraj, Kasia, Hata, Captanganj and Khadda tehsil in Kushinagar district have started worshipping 'Corona Mai'. >Coronavirus, which is believed to have originated in China's Wuhan and has thrown the entire world out of gear, is now a goddess in India. 'Corona Mai' is being worshiped in parts of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and Assam. The 'goddess' is being pleaded to spare lives. >In Uttar Pradesh, women in some villages in Tumkuhiraj, Kasia, Hata, Captanganj and Khadda tehsil in Kushinagar district have started worshipping 'Corona Mai'. These women have dug a small pit in the field, filled it with water and each one offers nine cloves and nine 'laddoos' to 'Corona Mai' to appease her. Women from adjoining villages are now flocking to the 'temple' to pray to 'Corona Mai', IANS reported. >Similarly in Ranchi, women on Friday gathered in large numbers at Namkom and Tatisilve in Ranchi, Bagbera ground in Jamshedpur and at two places in Dhanbad and worshipped goddess coronavirus. The women gathered along along with puja materials like sindoor, flowers, ladoos, water in pots. They sat around a tree and worshipped the coronavirus goddess. They also sang a song to appease the coronavirus goddess. However, while praying, the women forgot about social distancing. "We have taken shelter under goddess coronavirus. She will be pacified with worship. The doctors have failed to treat patients and scientists have also failed to develop a vaccine to cure coronavirus. We have worshipped coronavirus goddess so that our family members will remain safe from it" said Naina Devi, a resident of Namkom who was part of the group. >Echoing her view Kabita Mahto said "the country has witnessed two natural calamities in West Bengal and Maharashtra in the form of cyclones due to goddess coronavirus. Nothing has been done to pacify the goddess. She is taking a big shape. We have worshipped to calm down goddess coronavirus'' anger." >Taking cue from other states, some women in Assam have also started worshiping the deadly novel coronavirus as a "goddess" in a bid to to get rid of the devastating disease. A large number of women in different districts of Assam, for the past few days, worshipped the fatal virus as a "goddess" or "Corona Maa" even as the scientists, experts and doctors across the world are on an all round war against Covid-19 and engaged in developing vaccines and medicines. Many people, mostly women, are now performing "Corona Devi Puja" in Assam. They believe that it is the only way to put an end of the deadly coronavirus pandemic. >From Biswanath Chariali to Darrang district and even in Assam's main city of Guwahati, women, in some places accompanied by men too, have been performing "Corona Devi Puja" on the bank of the rivers or in temples and under big trees. In order to please "Corona Maa", some women in Biswanath district of northern Assam, after day-long fasting, prayed to "Corona Maa", claiming that they believe if the "Corona God" is satisfied with their "puja", the frightful disease would be eliminated. >Reacting to the performance of "Corina Devi Puja", an Assam Health Department official said that they have to intensify their awareness campaign against such superstitious beliefs. Besides the Health Department, police and social welfare departments and many NGOs in Assam are conducting awareness programme against the Covid-19 pandemic. >In Bihar, 'Corona Devi' has emerged as a goddess for village women who believe it would rid them of the corona infection. In many districts of Bihar, including Nalanda, Gopalganj, Saran, Vaishali, Muzaffarpur, women have been thronging water-bodies in the vicinity and worshipping the 'Corona Devi' for the last few days. The video of the rituals has gone viral on social media, too. The women, though, are seen maintaining social distancing. The women at Phulvariya Ghat in Gopalangaj, dug seven pits and put jaggery syrup into them along with cloves, cardamom, flowers and seven 'ladoos' and worshipped the 'Corona Devi' to get rid of the epidemic. >For the last three days at Sarveshwarnath Temple in Brahmapura, Muzaffarpur, women have been performing the ritual. A woman said she "realised" after watching a video that if corona had to be chased away, a ritual with offerings of 'ladoos', flowers and sesame seeds would do the trick. Another woman said she associates the worship with a dream she had. >In many blocks of Buxar district, women worship the 'Corona Devi'. A group of women took a dip in the Ganga and offered prayers at the river bank. Seven pits were made and after lighting incense, jaggery and sesame along with 'ladoos' and flowers were buried into the ground. In many areas, the worship is also done by offering 'poha' to the 'Corona Devi'. http://archive.is/gSOFX Priests Resort to Baptism by Water Gun: https://archive.is/15Neq

On top of China having to cover up how badly they were suffering as the original strain traveled around it mutated into multiple weaker strains. Most of the people who caught the original are already dead and now all we may have is a chronic nothing burger but that doesn't mean it wont bite you in the ass later if you catch it. Don't forget it's airborne aids and there is no evidence to suggest it can be purged naturally by your immune system.

Since this is probably the last thread, might as well close it off with a summary of the information about Quercetin and other immunological adjuvants from the opening replies collated and condensed for Streloks' reference in the future American wasteland. It is missing the latest treatment which is Dexamethasone, an anti-inflammatory steroid which was found to improve the survival rate of patients requiring ventilation and to a lesser degree of patients requiring oxygen therapy. It appears to reduce the severity of the cytokine storm in those that experience one, so if you are in the deep lung terminal stage of the illness it's worth giving it a shot.

>>123 Good post., Vitamin K is good for your blood veins and it is also needed for normal blood coagulation, however, as Covid-19 can cause clotting, it might be smart to stop using Vitamin K, if you get infected. Also, Iodine is potentially good supplement, too (remember, iodine is antiseptic and it is used for ex. to purify water and as mouthwash to clean your gum if you have candida yeast problem. As a side note, iodine also helps your body to get rid of fluoride) Don't forget to take your fish oil supplements, because apparently omega-3 lowers inflammation and can make blood thinner (also, in addition of being anti-inflammatory and painkiller, aspirin also prevents clotting as well) Probiotics can be useful for preventing secondary infections but do not get a probiotics product that contains Saccharomyces boulardii (or any other kind of yeast) since there have been reports of it causing systemic fungal infection in patients with compromized immune system. Zinc acetate is probably the best form of zinc supplement for preventing corona-chan (and other kinds of respiratory infections) because it doesn't have to reach your gut before it starts absorbing (meaning zinc acetate likely protects your throat more than other forms of zinc) The downside of zinc acetate is that it tastes like shit and it can accelerate the growth of candida yeast in your mouth (remember to clean your tongue and go buy some iodine mouthwash, if you do get a candida problem) Finally, pure L-arginine (or Arginine hydrochloride) could also be a good supplement to add to your regime. Arginine improves blood flow and it is needed for production of nitric oxide (aka nitrogen monoxide) which is needed by your body for maintaining normal blood pressure and it also plays role in immune system, as well. Arginine is also important for your blood veins because your endothelial cells need it. Nitric oxide therapy is also being researched for treating Covid-19 (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.micinf.2020.05.002) (plus, arginine also helps your body to transfer fat away from your muscles and possibly helps your body to burn fat, and arginine has been researched for preventing and treating non-alcoholic fatty liver) The potential downside of prolonged continuous use of arginine supplements can be TMAO, which is a compound that's made by your gut bacteria. TMAO may or may not contribute for clotting of veins (the evidence is conflicting; there is possibility that TMAO doesn't actually have any significant effect on cardiovascular health). Researchers recommend taking arginine for 2 months and then having a 2 week break before continuing the use of arginine supplements. (as a side note, you should take arginine supplements between meals since other amino acids "compete" with arginine)
>>3618 Doesn't Citrulline also help with nitric oxide production? I don't think it has the same issues with TMAO that Arginine has. Incidentally Viagra also helps with altitude sickness due to similar effects on blood flow, and there were some studies indicating it could help with coronavirus induced low oxygen levels.
>>709 I’m going to bring up this topic again since the original post got tossed aside due to cross-board bullshit. I am not the anon in the screen cap, but I do work in a hospital (building maintenance) and I’ve seen the same things happen in that post. The first thing you should know is that the Affordable Care Act has caused hospitals to bleed funds for a decade now. The crux of the problem is that Medicare and Medicaid don’t pay out nearly as well as private insurance does. Since more people have access to insurance there are more people going to medical facilities for their problems. As a result hospitals have had to treat more patients than before, but have received proportionally less funding. Hospitals have very little ways to cut costs. They can’t reduce the number of patients they’re admitting, because they’re legally obligated to provide aid to anyone who asks for it. They have no control over drug and equipment costs, which are designed to bleed out as much insurance money as they can. They can’t control staff salaries because those are often built on multi-year contracts, and any major deviation will just lead to strikes or employees leaving for other jobs. Outsourcing departments like IT or purchasing is its own can of worms, though it helps reduce costs there’s a huge drop in quality. It also doesn’t help that the CEO and the rest of the top management are all greedy fucks with inflated salaries who outsourced most of their responsibilities to "consultants" on the hospital's dime. What they DO have control over is building upgrade projects and the amount of staff per department, and by now ten years after the fact both are being pushed to the breaking point. We have a wing in our hospital which is older than I am and is falling apart. We’ve had to shut off the water in most of the building because the drain systems leaks like a sieve and we can’t replace the pipes without significant costs. The only thing we can really do with this space is convert the old patient rooms to be used for offices. Even though it’s been in the plans for years to demolish and replace this money pit, we haven’t been able to do anything because of the short-term costs. As for staffing, in my department for the past several years for about every two employees that have left or retired we’ve only hired one replacement. As of right now we’re just a couple employees above the bare minimum to operate the building and its boiler/chiller plant. And that’s where we were prior to the shut-down mid-March. Two months later in May, our director came down for a meeting about why we weren’t going to be hiring for a vacancy recently created by one of our staff retiring (can’t blame the guy, if I were his age and had the money I’d be out too). Now, with all the costs involved in running a hospital, our biggest money makers are elective surgeries and medical imaging. With the shutdown both of those were put on hold. As a result, over the course of two months the hospital had a roughly $50 million deficit. We’d managed to get about $30 million in government grants, but there’s no telling if we’d be able to get any more than that (I am not hopeful). And that was a month and a half ago. I can’t imagine that things have gotten much better since then, though we have slowly started opening up elective surgeries and imaging again.
