Covid-19 facts not fake news lies, 43% of deaths in nursing homes, Gov Cooper et al enabled “protesters” failed public, Deaths not cases

“The (American) press, which is mostly controlled by vested
interests, has an excessive influence on public opinion.”… Albert Einstein

“There were 58,148 total deaths the week ending 2/1/2020, pre Covid-19, in the middle of winter and flu season. There were 15,221 total deaths the week ending 6/20/2020”…Citizen Wells

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Cases of Covid-19 are up.

That is all the lying fake news media wants you to hear.

Why? It is all about removing President Trump.

Now the truth, facts, reality check from Citizen Wells.

The true arbiter of the impact on our health is death.

Something we can use as an apples to apples comparison.

In any given year, Americans dies from a myriad of diseases and accidents.

Also, as reported at Citizen Wells, the vast majority of Covid-19 deaths happen to older folks and those with preexisting conditions.

Now let’s look at the latest data from the CDC, week ending June 20, 2020.

There were 271 Covid-19 deaths for the week ending 6/20/2020 with 90 % being age 55 or over.

Total deaths for the week were 15,221.

Peak Covid-19 deaths occurred the week ending 4/18/2020.

There were 16,343 Covid-19 deaths.

93 % of those were age 55 and over.

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm#AgeAndSex

It is clear that Covid-19 deaths have plummeted despite the increase in recorded cases.

It is also clear that the vast majority of the deaths have happened to older Americans and those with compromised health.

What we do not yet know is the impact of “protesters”, thugs, rioters and modern day Nazis given carte blanche to gather and create bedlam by governors like NC Roy Cooper, the same governor who referred to the Ace Speedway gatherings as a “Imminent Hazard.”

Time will tell.

“Since some of our earliest news about Covid-19 came out of a nursing home in Washington State, we had a proper heads up.

Conclusion: governors and states apparently have done a poor job of protecting our most vulnerable populations in nursing homes and probably overreacted in regard to the rest of the population.

The fake news media has not helped.

“Gov. Cooper is playing by his own rules” Greensboro News Record, Curbing the spread of COVID-19, Protesters gathered in thousands, Tax payers limited to small gatherings

“Gov. Cooper is playing by his own rules” Greensboro News Record, Curbing the spread of COVID-19, Protesters gathered in thousands, Tax payers limited to small gatherings

“The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man.”...Malcom X

“These Democrats — and I’m sorry to say this, I’m not trying to be racist — but they hate black people. These are the same people who fought to keep slavery in. These are the same people who built the KKK. These are the same people who hated us from the beginning. The Republican Party is the party of the blacks … but all of that history has been torn away.”...Bevelyn Beatty

“Democrats: party of slavery, secession, KKK and using blacks for their personal gain.”…Citizen Wells

 

Miracle?  Guilt? Mistake?

The lying fake news Democrat Party controlled Greensboro News Record allowed an article critical of NC Governor Roy Cooper to be printed.

An article I was planning on writing. The truth!

From the Greensboro News Record.

“Bottom Line: Gov. Cooper is playing by his own rules

By Wayne Ford
Jun 19, 2020”

“Well, Gov. Cooper has his own “rules” when it comes to curbing the spread of COVID-19.

They are not the same for everyone.
A friend of mine lost his father in April, and my friend was very upset that the governor’s “rules” only allowed a maximum of 10 people to attend the funeral service.

Why weren’t the hundreds of North Carolinians who lost family members over the past three months given the same opportunity to attend the memorial service — as George Floyd’s family was given in Raeford?
Why don’t Cooper’s “rules” apply to all citizens?

Another friend of mine sent out invitations in February to his wedding scheduled for May 2. When the governor limited all church services and celebrations to no more than 10 people, my friend and his fiancee had to uninvite more than 100
people who were expecting to attend the celebration.

But where was the governor when thousands of North Carolinians recently protested in many cities, and when many did not wear masks or observe social distancing?

Why didn’t Gov. Cooper speak out against the risk that these protesters were taking in spreading the coronavirus?

And why did the governor shut down ACE Speedway in Alamance County because he said it was hosting too many people?

NY Gov Cuomo responsible for nursing home deaths, Blames Trump and scrubs evidence of his incompetence, NY Mar 25 advisory scrubbed between May 5 & 8

NY Gov Cuomo responsible for nursing home deaths, Blames Trump and scrubs evidence of his incompetence, NY Mar 25 advisory scrubbed between May 5 & 8

“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”...NY advisory March 25, 2020 scrubbed  May 5-8

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

NY Governor Cuomo has been denying responsibility for the many deaths in nursing homes in New York.

He has made bizarre claims that Trump bears responsibility.

That is a lie.

And even worse NY has scrubbed the advisory of March 25, 2020. The advisory that clearly contradicts the CDC guidance.

From the NY Post May 20, 2020.

“First Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed nursing homes for a widely criticized directive from his Health Department barring the facilities from turning away coronavirus-positive people — now he’s pawning it off on the White House.

Critics should “ask President Trump” about it, the governor said Wednesday, arguing that the federal government actually cooked up the mandate — and that New York was just following Washington’s lead.

“Anyone who wants to ask, ‘Why did the state do that with COVID patients in nursing homes,’ it’s because the state followed President Trump’s CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance,” Cuomo told reporters in Albany who pressed him on whether he had any regrets about the directive, which may have played a role in the deaths of thousands of nursing home residents.

“They should ask President Trump. I think that will stop the conversation,” he repeated.”

From the NY State March 25, 2020 Advisory.

“DATE: March 25, 2020
TO: Nursing Home Administrators, Directors of Nursing, and Hospital Discharge Planners
FROM: New York State Department of Health

COVID-19 has been detected in multiple communities throughout New York State. There is an urgent need to expand hospital capacity in New York State to be able to meet the demand for patients with COVID-19 requiring acute care. As a result, this directive is being issued to clarify expectations for nursing homes (NHs) receiving residents returning from hospitalization and for NHs accepting new admissions.

Hospital discharge planning staff and NHs should carefully review this guidance with all staff directly involved in resident admission, transfer, and discharges.

During this global health emergency, all NHs must comply with the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals to NHs. Residents are deemed appropriate for return to a NH upon a determination by the hospital physician or designee that the resident is medically stable for return.

Hospital discharge planners must confirm to the NH, by telephone, that the resident is medically stable for discharge. Comprehensive discharge instructions must be provided by the hospital prior to the transport of a resident to the NH.

No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

CDC guidance April 2, 2020.

COVID-19 Long-Term Care Facility Guidance
April 2, 2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are issuing new recommendations to State and local governments and long-term care facilities (also known as nursing homes) to help mitigate the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Long-term care facilities are a critical component of America’s healthcare system. They are unique, as they serve as both healthcare providers and as full-time homes for some of the most vulnerable Americans.

In recent weeks, CMS and CDC, at President Trump’s direction, have worked together to swiftly issue unprecedented targeted direction to the long-term care facility industry, including a general prohibition of visitors implemented on March 13, 2020, as well as strict infection control and other screening
recommendations. However, recent observations made by CDC and CMS experts onsite in facilities have emphasized that even more must be done to universally implement this key guidance.”

“3. Long-term care facilities should immediately implement symptom screening for all.
• In accordance with previous CMS guidance, every individual regardless of reason entering a long-term care facility (including residents, staff, visitors, outside healthcare workers, vendors, etc.) should be asked about COVID-19 symptoms and they must also have their temperature checked. An exception to this is Emergency Medical Service (EMS) workers responding to an urgent medical need. They do not have to be screened, as they are typically
screened separately.
• Facilities should limit access points and ensure that all accessible entrances have a screening station.
• In accordance with previous CDC guidance, every resident should be assessed for symptoms and have their temperature checked every day.
• Patients and residents who enter facilities should be screened for COVID-19 through testing, if available.”

Greensboro News Record fake news on Trump and WHO worse than Washington Post, NR omitted truth from WAPO article, News Record awarded 5 Orwells

Let me be clear.

I do not subscribe to the left mouthpiece fake news Greensboro News Record.

I did deliver and collect for them when I was 12.

I do intend to piss on their metaphorical grave when they go under which should be soon.

Imagine being more biased and fake news then the Washington Post.

Here is the most recent example.

From the Greensboro News Record print edition April 20, 2020 quoting the Washington Post.

“Americans at WHO told Trump about virus threat

More than a dozen U.S. researchers, physicians and public health experts, many of them from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, were working full time at the Geneva headquarters of the World Health Organization as the novel coronavirus emerged late last year and transmitted real-time information about its discovery and spread in China to the Trump administration, according to U.S. and international officials.

A number of CDC staffers are regularly detailed to work at WHO in Geneva as part of a rotation that has operated for years. Senior Trump-appointed health officials also consulted regularly at the highest levels with the WHO as the crisis unfolded, the officials said.

The presence of so many U.S. officials undercuts President Donald Trump’s charge that the WHO’s failure to communicate the extent of the threat, born of a desire to protect China, is largely responsible for the rapid spread of the virus in the United States.

The administration has also sharply criticized the Chinese government for withholding information.

But the president, who often touts a personal relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping and is reluctant to inflict damage on a trade deal with Beijing, appears to see the WHO as a more defenseless target.”

From the Washington Post and left out of the News Record article:

“”In a statement provided to The Washington Post after online publication of this article, Caitlin B. Oakley, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, confirmed that in January, HHS had 17 staff members, including 16 from the CDC, at the WHO, “working on a variety of programs, including covid-19 and Ebola.” She emphasized that the staff members were not “decision-makers.”

“Furthermore, I’d add that just because you have Americans embedded in WHO providing technical assistance does not change the information you are getting from WHO leadership,” Oakley said in an email. “We have learned now that WHO information was incorrect and relied too heavily on China.” Questioning why the WHO “did not press China harder,” she said that “the lack of transparency aided and abided by WHO leadership hampered understanding of the virus and delayed the global response.”

China “stalled for weeks” in allowing WHO experts to visit in January and February, Oakley said, “and the WHO never criticized them for the delay and even praised China for its ‘transparency.’ ””

.

.

“A G-7 statement issued after the call supported the need to review the WHO’s performance. “We cannot have business as usual and must ask the hard questions about how [the pandemic] came about,” said British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, standing in for virus-stricken Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But he stressed that a post-crisis review should be “driven by science.”

In announcing the funding cutoff, Trump said last week that the WHO parroted incorrect Chinese statements and “failed to investigate credible reports . . . that conflicted directly with the Chinese government’s official accounts.” He criticized “the inability of the WHO to obtain virus samples” that China continues to refuse to supply.

A Senate aide who has tracked the issue said “there was clearly an effort” by China “not to provide transparent data and information” in the early stages of the outbreak.

“We were looking to WHO to provide that information, and they did not. It was unclear as to whether they didn’t get that transparency from the Chinese, or that they chose not to share what they did get under pressure from the Chinese,” said the aide, who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.”

The Washington Post bears some responsibility for the News Record fake news. Indeed their heading is misleading:

“Americans at World Health Organization transmitted real-time information about coronavirus to Trump administration”

For what really happened, examine the timeline of WHO and US interaction here.

From The Epoch Times:

“The WHO has said that Chinese authorities first informed it about the outbreak on Dec. 31, 2019. While that would have been a golden opportunity to mitigate the spread of the virus worldwide, the WHO conveyed none of its information to the world that day.”

“On Jan. 2, The Epoch Times reported on the efforts of the CCP to block information about the outbreak and the high levels of anxiety spreading throughout the city.

A Wuhan Health Commission directive prohibited all medical facilities in the city “from publicizing medical information without permission,” and online discussions about the outbreak were quickly censored. On Jan. 1, Wuhan police said that they had detained eight locals who had spread “rumors” about the outbreak.

As it turned out, at least some of the suppressed whistleblowers were doctors who had tried to warn colleagues about the new virus.

Panicked locals cleared Wuhan pharmacies of surgical masks and over-the-counter preventive Chinese medicines. China expert and physician Tang Jingyuan warned a government coverup might exacerbate the spread of the virus.

Meanwhile, the WHO remained silent.”

From Fox News.

“Sources believe coronavirus originated in Wuhan lab as part of China’s efforts to compete with US

There is increasing confidence that COVID-19 likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News.

The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that “patient zero” worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.

The “increasing confidence” comes from classified and open-source documents and evidence, the sources said. Fox News has requested to see the evidence directly. Sources emphasized — as is often the case with intelligence — that it’s not definitive and should not be characterized as such. Some inside the administration and the intelligence and epidemiological communities are more skeptical, and the investigation is continuing.

What all of the sources agree about is the extensive cover-up of data and information about COVID-19 orchestrated by the Chinese government.”

Natural disasters are inevitable. A part of life on Earth.

Something like the Wuhan virus was coming sooner or later.

I, like many of my friends and associates are concerned about the origins and possible intents of the virus.

Was this designed and planned by the Chinese to impact the US?

I do not know.

But it did cross my mind.

For the moment I am in survivor mode.

Encounters from yesterday prompted me to ponder a variety of things and to write this article.

First, to satisfy the concerns of many, and to honor a long time commenter, is the following information:

“Now, regarding what you’ve heard about this virus and how it got going. It did NOT originate at the ‘live market’ in Wuhan; bats were not being sold there at the time, but it IS a bat virus. I got a report from an ‘insider’ in China who said that they’d be killed if discovered. This is what they said: There is a researcher in Wuhan (one of the very few labs on the planet that works with viruses) and any researcher-being who they are-wants to make an amazing discovery, publish papers and be well known. This researcher was able to isolate the virus and have it jump from bat to human. The next project was transmission from human to human and obviously, that was successful. The researcher published a paper. It was read by some. It has since disappeared. Bioweapon? Unlikely. ‘Escape from the lab’ a la Stephen King’s ‘The Stand?’ Probable. Why this research? Unknown.”

Within hours of receiving the above, I met a young man who is a friend of a relative. Someone who I had heard much about but never spoken to. A very level headed, intelligent person.

A few minutes into the conversation, he stated his belief about the origin of the Wuhan China virus. He believed that it was developed by the Chinese in retaliation for Trump’s tariff measures. Something that had crossed my mind.

This needs to be investigated after the emergency is over.

Now for the most important thing to be written.

I went to Harris Teeter for some grocery items yesterday. Not a lot. I stay pretty well stocked under normal circumstances, buying in bulk sale items.

The folks at Harris Teeter, as usual have done a great job of trying to keep the shelves full. I was pleasantly surprised and purchased what I needed.

I thanked them for their efforts. I urge you to do likewise.

They are a shining example of Americans doing their jobs in the face of adversity and America’s ability to keep the supply chain rolling.

Of course I was focused on my task.

Two conversations stick out:

  1. A woman in my age group and I discussed ice cream and grandkids. It turns out that she is unable to see hers because of a quarantine situation.
  2. In the checkout line behind me the younger woman had an overflowing cart. She has 3 teenage boys. We talked about kids and remote schooling and one thing or another. When leaving I stated I enjoyed talking to her and she said she did too because she had few people to talk to.

Perhaps I should have spent a few more minutes speaking with the first lady.

As I have aged I have tried to be more aware of the person who is checking me out in a store or assisting me with more empathy. To slow down and interact.

Not everyone wants to interact but it does not matter.

Perhaps we all should reach out to our fellow Americans as we are increasingly being isolated.

We are all in this together and should behave as Americans have done in other hard times.

Lastly, I am thankful for President Trump.

Aside from his being a strong leader, the following 3 things stand out:

  1. The strong economy that we entered this crisis with.
  2. His insistence on protecting the borders and limiting travel early.
  3. His efforts to get manufacturing back in the US and out of China.

A long time UNC TV personality recently stated that this crisis could be the World War II for the younger generation.

How we handle this will be a defining moment in American History.

Let’s hope that we look back on it with pride.

Wells.
