First, here is a quick word about the Chinese virus:
Health records from 5,700 patients hospitalized within the Northwell Health system — which housed the most patients in the country throughout the pandemic — showed that 94 percent of patients had more than one disease other than COVID-19, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Data taken from March to early April showed that the median age of patients was 63 years old and 53 percent of all coronavirus patients suffered from hypertension, the most prevalent of the ailments among patients.
In addition, 42 percent of coronavirus patients who had body mass index (BMI) data on file suffered from obesity while 32 percent of all patients suffered from diabetes.
In other words, the virus is attacking older people and those who are in bad health. Obesity and diabetes are conditions that usually are associated with personal health neglect. The Fake News media are covering up this fact to imply that we are all equally at risk. We are not.
We should be allowing most Americans to work and travel freely but to use social distancing and other preventive measures like masks. Older and sicker people should be restricted.
Update: The brother of Democrat US senator Elizabeth Warren died at 86. They say he died of coronavirus, but he had cancer and pneumonia. This is how the media spike the coronavirus numbers. He already had lived 12 years past the average male lifespan in the US.
Fake News about Chloroquine
Chloroquine, also known as hydroxychloroquine, is a drug that was mentioned by president Trump in one of his early press briefings on the Chinese virus. He said that he hoped that it could be a major step forward in fighting the virus since it has been effective in treating some patients. Chloroquine has been on the market since 1945 and has been shown to be effective in fighting lupus, arthritis and malaria, which is also a disease of respiratory distress like the Chinese virus is.
Liberals and Democrats immediately tried to discredit chloroquine in an attempt to snuff out any hope that Americans might have in this time of distress. They did this to harm president Trump. Two Democrat governors even banned it but then un-banned it.
TheBlaze.com recently reported:
A study of the effectiveness of the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine on veterans hospitalized with COVID-19 showed that the drug had no positive impact on those who took it when compared to patients who did not, Politico reported.
The study included 368 patients and is the largest of its kind so far. There has been anecdotal evidence from doctors and patients in the United States and other countries that hydroxychloroquine is an effective treatment for the disease caused by the novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China.
About the study: The researchers looked at the medical records for 368 patients who were hospitalized in veterans facilities with COVID-19, and who either died or were discharged by April 11.
The patients were divided into three categories: Those who took hydroxychloroquine along with standard COVID-19 care; those who took hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin along with standard care; and those who only received standard care.
The study was funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the University of Virginia.
The results: The patients who took neither the hydroxychloroquine nor the azithromycin had the best outcomes; only 11% of those patients died. Of the patients who took only hydroxychloroquine, 28% died. Of those who took both drugs, 22% died. Researchers noted that the difference between that latter group and the ones who received standard care was small enough that other factors could’ve caused it.
OK, so president Trump only mentioned choloroquine in late March and all of a sudden there is a so-called ‘study’ saying that it doesn’t work. How did this happen so quickly? Even as the study ended back on April 11?
This is totally suspicious. It sounds like this ‘study’ was rushed, faked and rigged against the drug to hurt president Trump. Nikitas3.com believes that this study may not even exist. It may be Fake News like the fake charges against president Trump on colluding with Russia and the fake charges of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
After all this “study” was allegedly funded by a university that hates Trump and a Deep State federal government agency that hates Trump.
First, this is an ‘observational study’ and not a ‘clinical trial’. They are two totally different things. This study had no controls or regimented processes. It is totally unacceptable to use this study to judge whether the drug works or not.
Second, the sample of 368 patients is very small. All scientists know that more subjects are needed to do an accurate study. Anotherserious clinical trial currently underway in New York covers 1,000 patients and its results are not due until June. And this trial is being conducted under strict scientific guidelines.
Third, the report on the study’s results don’t say anything about the condition of the patients except that they were in the hospital. Yet chloroquine is generally supposed to be administered to people before they even get sick enough to go into the hospital, and even as a preventive drug.
Were some of the subjects sicker than others? Who got the chloroquine? Was it a controlled study or just a random study? What were the conditions under which the drug was administered?
We have no idea. This ‘study’ has not been peer-reviewed by other scientists and has not been accepted for publication in any scientific journal. In other words, it is not backed up by any genuine scientific standards.
The Fake News media publicized this study so that it would be the first official word about chloroquine that the public hears about. And we are all supposed to say, “Chloroquine doesn’t work. I just heard it on the news.”
This ‘study’ should be ignored. It sounds like more Fake News. Let us wait for more serious investigations, with a bigger sample, before drawing any conclusions. Nikitas3.com still believes that chloroquine will help virus patients
Bold Governors Opening their States
There is an old adage that goes something like this: “If the United States were attacked by a foreign power, all Americans would unite to fight that power.”
This was true for hundreds of years, but today it is not true. We are seeing this with the Chinese virus. As our nation is attacked by the virus, Democrats have decided that they are more in favor of China than they are in favor of our nation’s well-being.
Democrats are standing foursquare against blaming China for the virus. And now they are standing foursquare with Dr. Fauci who is warning that we must not allow states to open up their economies.
Fauci is the fraudster who said back in the 1980s that AIDS would break out into the heterosexual population and kill millions, but it never happened. This was the greatest blunder in American medical history. Fauci should not be believed about anything.
Fauci also lied on Easter Sunday when he said that he had warned about the seriousness of the virus in “mid-to-late January” but a videotape from January 21 shows Fauci saying that the virus was not a major threat.
Fauci is a faker. President Trump should not be using him as an advisor.
Today we have two Republican governors in Georgia and Oklahoma who are going to start opening up their state economies. And once this happens, there is going to be growing pressure to open all states since Americans are tired of this quarantine. The Associated Press reported:
Georgia’s governor announced plans Monday to restart the state’s economy before the end of the week, saying many businesses that closed to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus could reopen as early as Friday.
The governor in neighboring Tennessee planned to let businesses in most of his state begin reopening as soon as next week.
Georgia’s timetable, one of the most aggressive in the nation, would allow gyms, hair salons, bowling alleys and tattoo parlors to reopen as long as owners follow strict social-distancing and hygiene requirements. Elective medical procedures would also resume. By Monday, movie theaters may resume selling tickets, and restaurants limited to takeout orders could return to limited dine-in service.
Republican Gov. Brian Kemp said it was important to allow businesses that had been shut down a chance to get some revenue flowing. But he emphasized businesses would still be operating under restrictions including monitoring employee health, enhancing sanitation and separating workers.
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, also a Republican, said his mandatory safer-at-home order will expire April 30, which will pave the way for 89 of the state’s 95 counties to begin opening businesses.
Lee’s announcement did not apply to counties with the largest cities — areas that are not overseen by Tennessee’s Department of Health but have their own public health districts.
OK, this sounds great. This lockdown has been largely unnecessary; there are big parts of the country that have been little affected or not affected by the virus; they did not need to shut down at all. Nikitas3.com has been to WalMart, the grocery story and Home Depot repeatedly throughout the quarantine with no ill effect.
After all, we have had the whole nation shut down after the virus broke out mostly in New York City. Nikitas3.com does not believes that New York City would shut down if the virus were centered in Wyoming. So why should the opposite happen?
Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt announced that hair salons, spas, nail salons and pet groomers can open their doors and that other businesses can follow.
Stitt’s said that the shops will be open by appointment only and will have to maintain social distancing and “strict sanitation protocols.”
Great. Let’s get back to work!
Update from Breitbart News:
South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, a Republican and the governor of one of just a handful of states that has not issued a statewide lockdown order, told Breitbart News exclusively on Wednesday her state is winning the war against the coronavirus without the extreme and draconian measures some other states have implemented.
Noem said that despite earlier projections of a surge on the hospitals in South Dakota and nationwide, “no, we haven’t” seen such a surge. In fact, South Dakota has—again, without a lockdown—cut that number down by 75 percent of the projections, with much less than a hundred people in the hospital.
According to the state’s Department of Health website, there have been 1,858 cases of coronavirus in South Dakota—937 people have recovered. There have been only 9 deaths, and there are 62 people currently hospitalized. In total, only 111 people were ever hospitalized for coronavirus in South Dakota—far less than ever was expected.
“I think we’ve got maybe 60 people in the hospital right now,” Noem said in an exclusive interview on Wednesday. “We have 2,500 beds set aside for COVID-19 patients, but we only have 63 in. We probably, from all of our projections and studying the science behind the virus, we won’t peak until the middle of June. But we already have done much better than what we had thought would have been hitting our state already.”
Trump Gives OK to Sink Iranian Military Boats
President Trump has ordered the destruction of Iranian gunboats that are harassing US military ships.
“I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
The president reacted to reports of Iranian gunboats continuing to come close and taunt American military ships in the Persian Gulf. Eleven Iran gunboats repeatedly harassed six US Navy warships.
Good for Trump. Nikitas3.com urges the US military to blow every one of these Iranian boats out of the water to teach Iran a lesson. They are taunting us. These boats are all manned by islamic devils who are serving the world’s most notorious state sponsor of terrorism. We should give them a taste of their own medicine.
‘Greenies’ Miss Big “Earth Day” Anniversary
The 50th anniversary of ‘earth day’ was Wednesday, April 22. Most people do not know that the first ‘earth day’ was April 22, 1970, which just so happened to have been the 100th anniversary to the day of the birth of genocidal Russian communist dictator Vladimir Lenin. This was no coincidence.
The Fake News media also are ignoring the fact that the ‘hippie’ activist who is credited with starting “earth day” murdered his girlfriend in 1977 and stuffed her body in a trunk. He recently died in prison.
In New England we celebrated “earth day” with snow, howling winds and frigid temperatures.
So much for ‘global warming’…
The Fake News media were sad that we all missed the opportunity to celebrate the 50th anniversary. John Blackstone of CBS News reported:
Earth day is dedicated to all species. And while humans are locked down, wildlife’s filling the void. In Yosemite, animals aren’t hiding from visitors. On Florida’s coasts, Manatees are showing up in unusual numbers.
From goats in a deserted town in Wales, to lions lounging on a road in South Africa; nature seems to be saying, “We can get along fine without you.”
Yessiree, the media and the ‘greenies’ believe that those pesky humans are not needed by the wildlife. Ironically it is environmentalists themselves who are destroying the environment. If you want to read a Nikitas3.com essay called 28 Ways that Environmentalists Ruin the Environment, go here.
