Today is May 18, I am DML, and the stories below are catching headlines.
1- COVID19 leaves 100k stuck at sea
In the avenue of ocean that stretches south from Miami to Cuba and northeast to the Bahamas, dozens of cruise ships sail back and forth. Every so often, they come into Florida ports to refuel and restock. Otherwise, they wait.
The crew members on board — many no longer receiving paychecks — wait for news about when they will return home and see their families again. Two months after the cruise industry shut down amid repeated COVID-19 outbreaks on ships, more than 100,000 crew members remain trapped at sea with little reliable information about what will happen to them.
DML- It’s stories like these that make me a little less pissed off about my own situation here in NY. If I was on those boats I would have jumped shipped and swam home. Or so I think.
2- Trump blasts 60 Minutes
President Trump late Sunday accused CBS’ “60 Minutes” of putting the spotlight on another “Fake Whistleblower” who wants to inflict damage on his administration’s coronavirus response in order to benefit the “Radical Left Democrats.”
Dr. Rick Bright, who has a Ph.D. in virology and ran the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, reiterated earlier claims that the government was slow to respond to the unfolding pandemic and said the administration was instead worried about politics instead of science. He blamed Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar of not heeding early warning about the virus.
“I believe my last-ditch effort to protect Americans from that drug was the final straw that they used and believed was essential to push me out,” Bright said. He also told the House Energy and Commerce Committee last week that the nation could face “the darkest winter in modern history” if the virus rebounds.
Bright told Norah O’Donnell, the “60 Minutes” correspondent, that his resistance to Trump’s push of hydroxychloroquine was what ultimately cost him his position at the agency.
Trump tweeted in response to the program, writing:
@60Minutes & third place anchor, @NorahODonnell, are doing everything in their power to demean our Country, much to the benefit of the Radical Left Democrats. Tonight they put on yet another Fake “Whistleblower”, a disgruntled employee who supports Dems, fabricates stories, & spews lies. @60Minutes report was incorrect, which they couldn’t care less about. Fake News! I don’t know this guy, never met him, but don’t like what I see. How can a creep like this show up to work tomorrow & report to @SecAzar, his boss, after trashing him on T.V.? This whole Whistleblower racket needs to be looked at very closely, it is causing great injustice & harm. I hope you are listening @SenSusanCollins I also hope that Shari Redstone will take a look at her poorly performing gang. She knows how to make things right!
DML – Had Trump not tweeted this, I would have never known about the 60 Minutes interview. In other words, why shine a light on a place that’s better off left dark. Focus on the economy.
3-China used air travel to “seed” virus says WH adviser
Peter Navarro, the White House trade adviser, during a tv interview on Sunday suggested that China “sent hundreds of thousands” on aircraft throughout the world to “seed” the spread of the virus.
Navarro told ABC News’ “This Week” that the “Chinese—behind the shield of the World Health Organization—for two months hid the virus from the world and then sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese on aircraft to Milan, New York and around the world to seed it. They could have kept it in Wuhan, but instead, it became a pandemic.”
George Stephanopoulos, the host of the program, asked if he was accusing Beijing of deliberately spreading the virus. Navarro said he was not implying that it was intentional.
A four-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report dated May 1 and obtained by The Associated Press said Chinese leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic from the world in early January.
DML – At the end of the day, looking back only wastes time. We know China is a communist hell hole. Lets stop doing business with them, deport all Chinese people here illegally or on temporary visas, and shut the door on these scumbags forever. Case closed, virus over. Plus, I won’t be one bit upset over less things in my house being made in China. Trade with China should be outlawed. Build it in the USA.
4-Reopenings showing to be spikeless
Officials have yet to see coronavirus cases spiking in states that are reopening, although it’s still too early to determine such patterns, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said on Sunday.
“We are seeing that in places that are opening, we’re not seeing this spike in cases,” Azar said on CNN’s “State of the Union” program. “We still see spikes in some areas that are, in fact, closed.”
Azar said it will take time to identify and report new cases throughout the U.S., according to Reuters. The virus reportedly has up to a 14-day incubation period, which could also create a delay in determining when people might be infected.
DML – This is what happens when so many Americans are using DML CBD. I wonder why they never mention that in the reports. 🙂
5-Vaccine shows promise in trials
Moderna’s closely watched early-stage human trial for a coronavirus vaccine produced Covid-19 antibodies in all 45 participants, the biotech company announced Monday. Each participant was assigned to receive a 25 microgram, 100 mcg or 250 mcg dose at both vaccinations, with 15 people in each dose group. Study participants received two doses of the potential vaccine via intramuscular injection in the upper arm approximately 28 days apart.
At day 43, or two weeks following the second dose, levels of binding antibodies in the 25 mcg cohort were at the levels generally seen in blood samples from people who recovered from the disease, the company said. Antibodies in the 100 mcg had antibodies that “significantly exceeded levels” in recovered patients. The vaccine also produced neutralizing antibodies against Covid-19 in at least eight participants, the company said.
