Fauci: Case count to decline after inauguration day

I asked my doctor when Coronavirus will end. He said : "How should I know, I am not a politician?"
Dr. Fauci says COVID-18 will start declining right after inauguration day on January 20th.

Of course his prediction may change depending on the outcome of litigation.


'Covishield' vaccine volunteer sues Serum Institute of India, Oxford Group over 'adverse reaction'

A 40-year-old volunteer for 'Covishield', the candidate vaccine being tested by the Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII), has sued the company for ₹5 crore, alleging that the vaccine triggered an adverse reaction, which includes neurological impairment and an inability to get back to the life before being inoculated.

He has also demanded, via a legal notice sent to the SII, AstraZeneca and the Oxford Vaccine Group, that the vaccine trial, which is now being tested on 1,600 volunteers in India, be immediately halted.

The person's discharge summary says he was "discharged at request" and was recovering from "acute encephalopathy". He also had Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D deficiency, and had a probable "connective tissue disorder".

Dr. S.R. Ramakrishnan, who was the lead investigator for the Chennai arm of the trial and had treated the patient, told The Hindu that the "subject was now alright" but directed further questions to the Serum Institute spokesperson. "He recovered very well and we treated him as per protocol and he even came back for a follow-up. All the expenses were borne by the hospital," he said.


Pregnant women advised not to get Covid-19 vaccine - UK government report

A UK government advisory body has warned pregnant women to refrain from taking the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine, which is set to be rolled out in the country later this month.

Britain is the first country in the world to approve Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine designed to inoculate the masses against the Chinese virus.

Comment: The virus is not 'from China': Compelling Evidence That SARS-CoV-2 Was Man-Made

Healthcare staff and care home residents will prioritised when the British government rolls out the Big Pharma vaccine at the expense of the taxpayer but Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has warned pregnant women and women looking to become pregnant within the next few months to avoid getting the jab.

The JCVI said in a government-published report: "There are no data as yet on the safety of COVID-19 vaccines in pregnancy, either from human or animal studies. Given the lack of evidence, JCVI favours a precautionary approach, and does not currently advise COVID-19 vaccination in pregnancy.

Comment: Due to a lack of adequate trials, insufficient data and, in some cases, experimental and unproven 'technology', there are a great many concerns about the vaccines being concocted in the West, particularly those that have been rammed through the normal safe guards with 'emergency authorization': And check out SOTT radio's:


German lawyers initiate class-action Coronavirus litigation

Reiner Fuellmich
Reiner Fuellmich,1 who has been a consumer protection trial lawyer in California and Germany2 for 26 years, is a founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss,3 or ACU),4,5 launched July 10, 2020.

Fuellmich is leading the committee's corona crisis tort case — an international class-action lawsuit that will be filed against those responsible for using fraudulent testing to engineer the appearance of a dangerous pandemic in order to implement economically devastating lockdowns around the world.

He estimates more than 50 other countries will be following suit. In the video [below], Patrick Bet-David interviews Fuellmich about how and why the group was formed and the status of this work.

In 2015, the brain disorder overtook heart disease and stroke as Britain's biggest cause of death
Dementia deaths have declined by the largest number in 20 years, Government figures have revealed.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) published its first ever figures linked to dementia and Alzheimer's disease deaths, which also include comorbidities, for England and Wales

Researchers found that in 2019 there were 530,841 deaths registered. Of these, there were 66,424 deaths due to dementia and Alzheimer's disease (12.5 per cent) compared with 69,478 deaths in 2018.

The ONS also found that there was a "significant decrease" in the age-standardised mortality rate in 2019 in comparison to 2018 (a decline from 123.8 per 100,000 people in 2018, to 115.1 per 100,000 people in 2019).

Iron will to live: 102 year-old woman has survived the Spanish Flu, cancer and Covid

Angelina Friedman, covid survivor

Angelina Friedman
A 102-year-old New York woman who lived through the 1918 Spanish Flu and overcame cancer survived not only one — but two bouts with the coronavirus.

Angelina Friedman — a Westchester County nursing home resident with "an iron will to live" — battled COVID-19 back in March, as well as in October, her daughter told WPIX-TV.

"She's not the oldest to survive COVID, but she may be the oldest to survive it twice," Joanne Merola told the outlet.

The centenarian was born Angelina Sciales on Oct. 18, 1918, on a ship taking immigrants from Italy to the Big Apple in the midst of the influenza, Merola said.

Friedman's mother died in childbirth on the ship, and she was raised with the help of her two sisters.

Her father later joined Friedman and her 10 siblings in America and the family settled in Brooklyn.

Comment: This woman has one strong immune system - we salute her! As for testing positive for Covid a second time, that is debatable, considering the high rate of false positives from PCR tests.


Covid-19 was present in America BEFORE being officially confirmed in China, study by US health protection agency says

Coronavirus had been infecting people in the US even before China reported its first cases on December 31, 2019, research by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Red Cross has revealed.

American medics officially registered their first Covid-19 patient on January 19, 2020, but the findings in a paper published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases suggest the virus may have been circulating in the US prior to that.

Comment: The coronavirus COVID-19 was present in the general population before it was officially declared a pandemic.

Gut microbiome linked to poor sleep via metabolite production

New research has shone further light on the connection between the gut microbiome and sleep.
Among the many negative health outcomes that may be driven by changes to our gut microbiome is poor sleep, with recent research uncovering links between it and alterations to the community of bacteria living in our bellies. A new study out of Japan's University of Tsukuba is shining yet more light on this relationship, describing how depleted diversity of microbes in the gut can led to disrupted sleep in mice.

The research follows similar studies carried out on mice and fruit flies earlier this year, in which scientists found changes to the gut microbiome could lead to high blood pressure and fragmented sleep, as well as early death from sleep deprivation. The latest work carried out at the University of Tsukuba focuses on the role this bacteria plays in affecting sleep via the production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.

To investigate this connection, the researchers gave a group of mice strong doses of antibiotics over the course of four weeks. This depleted the diversity of bacteria in their intestines, which led to significant differences in their metabolites compared to a control group of mice fed the same diet.

The United Kingdom government has today announced its approval of the first Covid19 vaccine for general use. 800,000 doses are slated to be released for general use by the end of the week, and has already signed a contract for 40 million more doses (to go along with over 300 million doses of as-yet-unreleased vaccines from other companies).

With the newest phase in the Covid19 roll-out set to begin, it's time we addressed the five biggest questions about this vaccine, its effectiveness, its safety and whether or not we'll be forced to use it.

According to a study that examined how informed consent is given to COVID-19 vaccine trial participants, disclosure forms fail to inform volunteers that the vaccine might make them susceptible to more severe disease if they're exposed to the virus.
