"They told you that back. In the beginning the middle twenty over one hundred sixty million. It's guaranteed to have gone up by then by lot if that's what's happening but using this point to go off which is why i'm using this some natural protection now. That's not what the scientific says scientific studies say and not clear how long it lasts well. Okay let's actually look at the science which you would tell me to trust right. Here's the nih. January twenty six lasting immunity found after recover from copay nineteen years nature may twenty seven hundred. Twenty one more you've had covert. You probably make antibodies for lifetime. Okay so h his lasting nature says possibly for the rest of your life. Who says after four weeks almost up to ninety nine percent of people infected with it develop detectable neutralizing antibodies. The ones the specific antibodies. Not not everything else but just the antibodies which one part of it. The lancet tells you regardless of disease severity. You illicit robust adaptive immune immune responses and. That's including td eight t cell responses. Which is what dr kohl told. You are very important in regard to stopping other things as well which in fact the injection seems to lower which increases your risk of other infections. What do you know. it's almost like it. All adds up right so scientifically verify guys. These are being show so again. And i ate says lasting nature says possibly the rest of your life. Who says almost ninety nine percent of people lancet says you get these responses regardless of how severe it is c. tells you that the majority of uninfected people regardless of whether in fact get already show pre existing antibodies. That's before you ever got covert nineteen before this ever came around back in the march fifteenth and it also tells you many individuals show pre existing cross reactive reactive t. n. b. cells without prior exposure. How is it even possible unless most people had some level immunity before this ever started. That's what they're telling you batson illusion we're looking at. Here's nature telling you in july fifteenth twenty twenty sar to specific t cell immunity in people that go over nineteen people who had sars and just the uninfected controls so the people are supposed to be in the control. Placebo type. group are the ones that also immunity. That doesn't make sense unless you realize that. They have pre existing memory t cells or cd four cells. That's what we're seeing whether or not you've been infected and then once you get infected they say lasting for rest of your life. Most people does regardless these varity just so silly august six twenty twenty one from nature seven months. It's a new one. You guys haven't seen this one seven month. Kinetics of sarsour we to antibodies and role of pre existing. Antibodies to human corona.

Peter Daszak: The Man Behind Anthony Fauci
"We are governed by currently in this era of public health. Put that in quotes lockdowns and draconian drank draconian ism by a group of people that was largely unknown a couple of years ago but they have come to the forefront and have more power than any other people in the history of domestic american policy. One of those people is dr peter desk. Dr peter dasent is the villain behind the villain. Is the man behind foudy. Now many people ask the question. How is it that they spied on. Donald trump the same playbook that they used spy on donald trump. And go after lieutenant general. Michael flynn is precisely the same playbook that they use to launch this fraudulent campaign saying that the chinese corona virus came from the himalayas. It came from some bat soup. I'm reading from the daily mail dot com. It was revealed earlier last year. That peter desk a british scientists with longstanding links to the wuhan institute of variety had secretly orchestrated in landmark statement in the lancet in february two thousand twenty which attacked conspiracy theories suggesting the cove in one thousand nine does not have a natural origin. The now infamous letter signed by twenty-seven seven public health experts said they stood together to strongly condemn the theories that which they said quote do nothing but create fear rumours and prejudice. See that there. You have medical scientists telling us that it creates prejudice. They also lavished praise on chinese scientists. Who said they worked. Diligently and effectively to rapidly identified a pathogen behind this outbreak and share. Their results transparently the global health community. But now the lancet which is the top level of medical discourse and publication said near agreeing to publish an alternative commentary which discusses the possibility that laboratory research might have played a role in the emergence of the sars kobe to ouchi chinese corona virus. The scientists say quote. They need to evaluate all the hypotheses on a rational basis and away their likelihood based on facts evidence devoid speculation concerning potential and possible political impacts in february two thousand twenty. They even add that that statement in part of a silencing effect on the wider scientific debate. Yeah no kidding. Because peter dasent inserted themselves under orders from bouchier he is the pulp fiction equivalent of mr wolf.
Exposing the Villain Behind the Villain of Public Health
"Every story that we tell must have a villain with a chinese corona virus the virus go back and forth between the two who is the villain who is the man that pushed forward the lies and the deception about the origins of this virus. Who is the man. That is the darth vader the voldemort. Who is the man. That is the evil dr the mad scientist or we have a name and we've covered him for quite some time here on this program but he should be a household name. He's done everything he possibly can to try to make himself seem unimportant in unknown to you. He is one of the reasons. Why if you are facing a termination because you're vaccination status. This guy is behind it. He's one of the reasons why we mass mail and voting. He's friends with ouchi. He's friends with gates is the go-between of the entire alliance. Literally of what we are looking for. This man is named peter becic. He's a british zoologist. Let me stop here if you go and you look at kind of wear a lot of these press releases come from and a lot of the people behind kind of when the cia gets involved in dealing with foreign intelligence. The cia has something with zoologists. I don't quite understand it. I don't i don't know why this is that one field of study. It seems there is more agency overlap with zoology than anything else. Maybe we can have some people that have worked in the agency on this program and tell us why back in february of two thousand twenty and we know this because of the declassified vouch emails the medical industrial complex with ouchi and you clause and the entire machine that is the cdc the nih the fda they were scrambling and freaking out when they realized that this mysterious flu and pneumonia coming out of china very well might be tied to gain of function research. That was here in america but there was one man that they all leaned upon someone that was not on. Us government payroll someone that had an extraordinary amount of power someone that knew all the heads of state and knew the people that were in charge of the public health divisions and this man peter dacix was the man who got intimately involved in orchestrating and concocting scheme that the lancet journal of medicine just called the lancet in february of two thousand twenty which quote attacked conspiracy theories suggesting that the virus does not have a natural

Covid: Delta Variant Patients Twice as Likely to Need Hospital Care
"Com. It's 7 41. People who contract the delta variant of the coronavirus are twice as likely to be hospitalized as those who contract the original strain. That's what a study published in The Lancet is showing. Researchers evaluated Covid patients in England. 8600 infected with the Delta variant and 34,000 infected with the original strain of the patients with the Delta variant 2.3% were admitted to the hospital as compared to 2.2% of those with the original strain.

"All at the cost of saying this injection. This experimental unapproved gene. Therapy that we're forcing on everybody. But despite it being approved that's what you have to do. Which by the way. Remember that thing removes the antibodies from your blood. Based on what the everybody we reporting on continuing to tell you i could play that clip again but i played it a many times but as the mainstream media reported the injection was removing the antibodies from convalescent blood. I just baffling to me. How we can't see how obviously their choices are either making you more in increasing your risk making you sick or shielding you from things. That would keep you safe. It says as suggested by recent studies low dose viral particles entering the respiratory and in in tracks may be able to induce t. cell memory in the absence of inflammation potentially resulting in different degrees of immunization. The obviously this is not we a certain that informed consent document that was like absolutely specific and serious risks that you should tell everybody about and they still didn't tell anybody about it nonetheless it still important taking in conjunction with everything we've already talked about. You know the fact that your natural immunity based on what. Who nature the nih. Everybody says is lasting durable robust and possibly the rest of your life ninety nine percent of the people dealing with it on top of that and this speaks to the other one. Actually let me see. If i can just grab that. Since i forgot about that. I think it was one perfect. This is important because it's kind of it kind of goes hand in hand with this. This is why it's saying people. This is again from march fifteenth. Twenty twenty one so it almost seems like this fall that up with this may so but this one was saying in march fifteenth that the majority of uninfected adults so in the united states the majority of uninfected people already showed pre existing antibody reactivity against arcelia to peer view research. Why aren't we talking about that. Like this is just completely disregarded and it saying that before all of this you already had pre existing antibody reactivity and then what this is saying. He's even more so as you can see that. This is just basic being in a populated environment and having natural exposure without even getting sick gives you potential immunity tisdale immunity but then remember. The lancet also said the same thing regardless of disease. Severity was that over here. But i had that up somewhere right here. Yeah regardless of disease severity. So what this is. This is a big deal now. Bringing this to the next point this is july fifteen twenty twenty so this goes back even before this was happening. This is in the midst of the first. We were being told twenty. This is sar. Cad to specific t cell immunity in cases of covert nineteen and sars and uninfected controls. And this is tying all together now says memory t cells induced by previous pathogens..

COVID: What is the Delta Variant?
"The latest virus variant to grab headlines is called delta. Why are scientists particularly concerned about it josh. Because it's more transmissible and it seems to be putting more people in the hospital. Tanya and it's on the rise all around the globe delta was first spotted in india and spread quickly to seventy four countries in england. It accounts for ninety percent of new cases taking over from the version called alpha. It's got a bunch of mutations. That seem to help it. Get inside human cells and vague. Antibodies that for it. Researchers at public health england found the chances of people passing delta around their households were sixty four percent higher than with alpha. That's a big jump. England had started opening up more recently to couldn't that have also led to more infections in addition to some feature of the variant itself. Yeah there's stuff going on that can heighten the delta numbers people started traveling and businesses and restaurants. Were opening. But the bottom line here is. There's a steep climb in delta cases and delta appears to send twice as many people to the hospital as alpha does. that's severe illness. Such as being unable to breathe. A lot of these people are younger. Underage thirty according to research in the medical journal. The lancet now this isn't all doom even with delta vaccines keep people safe health records in scotland. Show two shots of the pfizer. Vaccine blocked delta infection in eighty percent of people both the pfizer and astrazeneca. Vaccines kept practically everyone. Who got those shots out of the hospital. Early data from england show. So what's this all mean already in the us delta accounts for ten percent of infections. So it's coming. With summer reopenings and people mingling unvaccinated. People could get delta during the next few months setting up ugly fall getting vaccinated. The numbers show is the best route to keeping infections. Down and getting live closer to normal
Is Vaccine Hesitancy a New Phenomenon?
"The vocal anti vaccination movement is fairly recent and was really kicked into gear in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight by a now discredited paper that appeared in the medical journal lancet which falsely linked vaccines with autism however vaccine. Hesitancy is as old as vaccines themselves. How stuff works also spoke with dr katherine edwards. The author of an american academy of pediatrics clinical report called countering vaccine hesitancy and she said this has been going on for centuries and pointed to a cartoon published back in eighteen o to the depicts people growing cow-like parts this was in response to edward jenner pioneering smallpox vaccine by using material from cowpox a medical historian by the name of elena kanas wrote in a twenty fifteen in the american historian that the first smallpox vaccine quote was met with enthusiasm but also dread while many patients and physicians were eager to fend off air as most feared diseases. Many others balked at the prospect of contaminating their healthy bodies with disease matter from an animal. And then when european countries began making smallpox vaccines mandatory. And the early eighteen. Hundreds she wrote that quote societies of anti vaccination assists formed to protest what they saw as unequal treatment and undue infringement of individual liberty. But they didn't get much traction. There was also little protest against the polio vaccine which was released in nineteen fifty four to wild enthusiasm in america according to conus she wrote parents so dreaded polio that they were quick to seek the vaccine for their children and course of politics never became necessary but as the decades went on american parents. Were not so excited about vaccinations for measles mumps and other diseases. She noted perhaps because people were used to living with these diseases.

Media Was Quick to Criticize Trump yet Failed to Investigate True Origins of COVID-19 Virus
"People clearly knew this thing could have originated and likely did originate in a Chinese bioweapons lab. It was starting the process of wiping out what would be millions of people. People in the scientific community and the media and within our own government appear to have colluded to suppress that information for the sole purpose of influencing an election and attacking a political figure. When that same political figure, Donald J. Trump. Mentioned the drug Hydroxychloroquine that initially had showed promise in the fight against coronavirus. Instead of putting out the science and allowing doctors to make informed decisions. Politicians in some states actually banned its use for that purpose, while the media jumped in and attack the drug. Cited a study by the Lancet. Study that had to be retracted later because of its shoddiness. The same Lancet that appeared to have implied an endorsement of Joe Biden's victory that's supposed to be a science journal, the same Lancet that published the letter authored by Peter Dash, shock and others. Waving people off the lab leak hypothesis. We have the players. We have the conspiracy. We have the overt acts. It's not a theory. All we need. Now are people empowered to investigate
PREDICT Director Jonna Mazet Waved off Lab Leak Theory Early, Ignoring 'Anomalies'
"Piece about that Lancet letter because here's where it gets really toasting of the muffins time. The global director of predict was a doctor, Joanna Masset of the University of California, Davis. The W. H O conducted an investigation into the origins of covid, it turns. It turned to Dr Dash shock from the Eco Health Alliance to lead the effort. No conflict there, folks. He declared the origin of the virus to be zoonotic occurring naturally from an animal to humans in an unknown fashion. We now know based on Scott's reporting. Dr Dash. Chuck was the driving the whole force behind the letter published in the March 7 2020 issue of Lancet. One of the leading medical journals in the world. Whose signature ladies and gentlemen is on that letter. Or whose name is on that letter. Peter Dash. Jack's name is on it waving people off the lab league theory. Which is kind of fascinating. You know who else is? Name is on it. Yeah, John, a massive From predict. The Department of Defense Associated Program with their money. She signed it, too. Had her name on the letter waving people off. Also on that letter was Jeremy Farrar remember him from yesterday's radio show. The guy who got the email from Edward Holmes. Remember what the email said? Yeah, we've We've seen some anomalies in this, but we're not talking about it because it'll make us look like loons. You've seen some anomalies in what the virus. What were those anomalies was at the double CG fingerprint code, which would indicate that it was likely man made. At the bat Lady that dash axe working with Left out of her report.

"That I still think the most likely Ideology of this pathogen and Wuhan was from a laboratory escaped. The other people don't believe that That's fine. Science will eventually figure it out. It's not unusual for respiratory pathogens that are being worked on in a laboratory to infect the laboratory worker. It's not some guy on Twitter that's the former director of the CBC. So you think the world would stop and ask. Follow up questions such as Why do you think that? Where's the evidence? But that's not what happened, Quote. I was threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis, Redfield told Vanity Fair. I expected it from politicians. I didn't expect it from science. But maybe he should have Redfield had dared to buck the orthodoxy that had been imposed by the global scientific establishment. It began on February 19th 2020, just as the virus is getting to this country and scaring the hell out of all of us At that moment, one of the leading science journals in the world, The Lancet. Published a letter that was signed by 27 scientists. That letter declared flatly and for all time that the coronavirus did not originate in a lab in Wuhan, and you'd have to be a bigot to believe otherwise. Now That letter we now know was organized by Peter Dacic Desk is a man with everything to gain by pretending that Covid came from a wet market desert was involved in gain of function research at Wuhan Institute of Virology. Emails show that Peter Daz, it carefully selected other signatories to the Lancet letter so that this obviously disqualifying conflict of interest would remain secret. At one point, Dacic wrote to another scientist, called Ralph Baric, who was also working a gain of function research in China, telling him not to sign the letter. Here's why quote will put it out in a way that doesn't link it back to our collaboration. So we maximize the independent voice end quote. So the whole thing was a fraud. And yet it worked. It was in the Lancet. Everyone trusts The Lancet. In fact, Tony Fauci himself cited Dash six letter as proof that the virus was not caused by research. He was funding if you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, And what's out there now is very, very strongly leaning towards this could not have been artificially or deliberately.

Past Covid Infections Don’t Confer Strong Enough Immunity, Study Finds, Underlining Need For Vaccines
"One of the first large studies exploring immunity from natural infection with covid nineteen researchers in denmark found some surprising trends including evidence that even those who previously contracted the disease should still get vaccinated in the study published march seventeenth in the medical journal. The lancet researchers took advantage of repeated corona virus test results from about four million people in order to how often those previously infected with sars covy to the virus that causes covid. Nineteen were reinfected. Since the test results were tied to people's health records. The scientists scientists could anonymous the data and compare those who tested positive during denmark's first covid nineteen wave last spring with those who tested positive during a second wave in the autumn that revealed key findings about reinfection rates in the country in the spring two percent of the five hundred thirty thousand plus people who were tested for sars cuvee to positive among them point six five percent tested positive again later that year compared to three point three percent of those who had tested negative during the first way that sets infection with sars covy to provides about eighty percent protection against reinfection. What's more there was no evidence that this immunity waned over the studies six month follow up period but when the researchers broke down the data by age they learned that this protection wasn't uniform. Protection was only forty seven percent for people over sixty five years old. The result in the elderly surprised me said lead researcher steen ethelbert of the statens serum institute denmark's equivalent of the us centers for disease control and prevention.
Covid reinfection is rare — but you're more at risk if you're over 65, study finds
"Who have contracted the coronavirus are protected against reinfection for at least six months. That's according to a new study published by Danish researchers in The Lancet medical journal. That immunity, however, diminishes significantly with age. The researchers found that natural infection reduce the chances of getting the virus again by about Percent in people younger than 65 that there was no evidence that that protection weekend after a six month period over a six month period, however, in those older than 65 of first bout with the virus offered just 47% protection against repeat infection.
How Psychedelic Drugs Are Making A Comeback To Treat Depression
"Depression. It can be a difficult mental illness to pin down. It can feel different for everyone and even those who struggle with it can have trouble identifying bought. It is a mostly came to understood that. I had depression through talking with my friends for the longest time. I kind of system that everyone felt this way. Like weird just like general malays for this twenty nine year old. Depression surfaced about six years ago and began as a feeling of being disconnected with the world. I didn't want to eat because they didn't feel like i deserve to eat. I don't know. I didn't hang out with friends because i didn't feel like i deserve to see my friends. I didn't feel like i should be punishing them by talking to them seeing them. This person uses they them pronouns. They're a maryland resident and work as a software tester. They sought help for their depression. Trying numerous types of treatments may visited a bunch of different mental health professionals and tried different types of arby's In different types of medication but it always kinda felt like things were getting worse and worse and a current really find someone who has really helped me understand what was going on like. I still didn't even believe that. I had depression. All the while the depression advanced it felt like being alive and lake wanting to die rolling constantly fighting over like the resources in my mind then. Their health insurance lapsed in two thousand eighteen making the situation worse a surprise solution appeared while they were scrolling on social media and a posting from johns hopkins university researchers and then one day i was kind of like clicking through facebook and i actually found this ad four like this little simon. Study silla simon. That's the psychedelic drug found in magic mushrooms. And i thought it was fake remarks. I didn't expect there to be you know like a a legitimate study showing up on like facebook ad but they had no insurance basically they were out of options so they called wanted to have hope again from the wall street journal. This is the future of everything. I'm janet babbling today on the podcast. How the hallucinogenic compounds silla zyban once associated with nine hundred sixty s drug culture is making a comeback and giving people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. Hope for this twenty nine year old study participant. Depression was not something that happened in their family. My family's from the caribbean and lived in america probably for about lake in years. We came here in ninety nine. It's kind of interesting because where from like a place that doesn't really view mental health. The that like america's mental health. It took me a while to realize that. I was having mental health problems that i was kind of experiencing depression. Depression affects a staggering number of people hundreds of millions worldwide according to a study published in the peer reviewed journal the lancet in two thousand eighteen. The pandemic didn't make things any easier. Last june about a third of people who responded to web based surveys said they suffered from symptoms of depression or anxiety disorder. Those results were published by the centers for disease control and prevention the protocol for treating these conditions hasn't changed much in the past few years. What we've been using is typically one of two things either a medication that people take every day or we have psychotherapy dr. Alan davis is clinical psychologist and an assistant professor at the ohio state university. He's also an adjunct assistant. Professor at johns hopkins university. A lot of people will improve with either medication or therapy or both to basically have both have a better chance but it doesn't work for everyone. Some studies report between ten and thirty. Five percent of patients suffer from treatment resistant. Depression and davis is that similar to what he's found in his own practice working with veterans suffering from substance abuse trauma and other mental health issues. So he began looking for alternative treatments present and welcome to psychedelic science. Two thousand and thirteen in twenty thirteen davis attended a science conference and came across a study exploring the use of silla. Sivan a chemical compound found in specific varieties of mushrooms to treat cancer patients with mental health conditions. The compounds documented facts include feelings of heightened awareness ecstasy visions and changes in the perception of reality for researchers say one of the most useful qualities is its ability to dissolve the ego to allow a user to observe oneself from the outside in the study of cancer patients. The drug was able to alleviate some of the anxiety and depression that can be associated with having a life threatening illness. I was just inspired by that word. I thought gosh this really could have a strong impact in the areas that i'm working with veterans and with others davis became part of a team of researchers at johns hopkins university that put together a randomized clinical trial. Twenty four participants. They were administered. Silla sivan with talk therapy to treat their depression. Enrollment for the trial took place in two thousand seventeen and twenty nineteen and the results were analyzed in two thousand twenty. Most of them had had chronic depression meaning decades of experiencing depression though not some had had it for shorter amount of time but this study was a weightless control trials so some people came in and started treatment right away. Others had to wait eight weeks before starting treatment so we had a comparison group. The study subjects received an extensive intake examined questionnaire to confirm. They were suffering from symptoms of depression. Participants were screened for schizophrenia. And drug use as these conditions can interfere with suicide and treatment. The big worry many people have about psychedelics is what's often referred to as a bad trip. Mary negative hallucinations. That can be scary and this is kind of trip that can go bad. Martissant received hefty doses of these drugs. The doses are based on weight and they vary slightly but patients receive around twenty milligrams in the first session a bit more in the second session to minimize the risk of a negative experience. Davis says researchers focused on controlling. What's called and setting. They work ahead of time to ensure the volunteers current mood and surroundings while taking the drugs. Remain as calm and comfortable as possible and so we spend about eight to ten hours with people before they ever get the drug talking about what the effects are talking about. What may or may not happen when they have this experience and that's why we have to train professionals there with them not only to prepare them for that but to help them through the experience when it happens because a lot of people have anxiety coming into the session. The person we spoke to the twenty nine year old participated in davis study group in august of two thousand eighteen. They had no prior experience with psychedelic drugs and didn't know watch expect basically went in kind of blindly. I don't have any other options. So that's kind of my thought process at the time was just basically kind of sticking anything to the wall and hoping it would work after fasting the previous night the treatment can cause nausea. They were placed in a small tranquil room fitted with a comfy couch. The whole room was a really really cool in very comforting because like they had like these statues like imagery in their end like. I think one of the muslim dowa tibetan model. I wanna say this and like there was like this nice lamp. It's off this really. Soft light psychedelic assisted. Therapy participants are encouraged to bring in objects from home to make them feel more comfortable. Some bring in ten bears pictures of family. The twenty nine year old brought a lightness of an ancient sumerian goddess. Soon nana once they were settled in the room. They were given two pills in a wooden cop the therapists top that the sivan would take fifteen to thirty minutes to start working. In the interim they were told to put on ice shades and headphones. That would play a selection of music they choose from classical tibetan chanting african drumming and modern music too. Once the drug fact the participants says the first session became a kaleidoscope of mental images and sensations. I remember being in lake. Felt like mount olympus the fall of the gods like oval the clouds and suffering them. And then one of my god's up to me and she gave me a key fell through the clouds. And i felt all the way down through the earth and i ended up in hell which is really strange because they don't remember being scared even though i was in hell and i remember asking like hey you know why am i hair And it was like haiti's leading me through hell kind of just like showing me around for life this very cold and desolate last. He was like of course. This is where you would come like. This is where you've made your home. The self revelations continued throughout this long session and turned intensely personal. I remember like hearing like the beats. Come on and i felt myself in like this place like all of my ancestors were and i was really close to my grandfather when i was a kid. And he died. Probably around when i was like four and i saw him kind of materialize And he walked towards the youth like these. She'll bananas which is what he's doing her then he handed one to me and i always kind of was afraid that if he was alive he would be disappointed in me and i remember asking him you know. When am i supposed to do like if my family like my parents and lake my siblings can accept me and he said that he'll always be there for me and my ancestors will always be there for me and i like that scene just like it. Metsu in mental to me after about seven hours than drugs started to wear off when it was over. You know you're still kind of like feeling it but just not as intensely so just basically like this really happy kind of floaty failing and we couldn't drive so like i had to have a sister pick me up. They ended the experience hungry and exhausted as for the depression not much appeared to have changed then. They tried the silla sivan trip once more this time with the stronger dose and after that these say they experienced to palpable shift. It felt like i was back into the world again like i was in reality. A lot of people said that not only was there. Depression differently felt like they had come out of dark hole that they've been in for years but a lot of people regardless of whether they're depression was gone or or reduced said that there was something really meaningful different about how they view their life initial results for the study reviewing outcomes from up to a month after the sessions were completed found that silla sivan plus therapy was more than four times more effective than other treatments. Such as medication alone at one week. Fifty eight percent of the sample were in complete remission from depression that actually lasted up to four weeks. After fifty four percent of people were in complete remission and were now studying those same people up to twelve months after to see how long that remission lasted the rest of the participants in the study. Were not in remission they were still experiencing clinically significant depressive symptoms researchers have yet to publish the results of longer term outcomes for all the participants their condition up to a year after treatment and this was a small study. Just twenty four people. Some scientists remain skeptical of this kind of treatment not just of silla simon. But of the validity of the data an outcomes for all studies involving psychoactive substances
Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine greatly reduces virus transmission, Israeli studies show
"To Israeli studies have found that Fizer Cove in 19 vaccine greatly reduces virus transmission. Shedding light on one of the biggest questions of the global effort to quash the pandemic. Data analysis and a study by the Israeli Health Ministry and Visor found the Fizer vaccine developed with Germany's beyond Tech. Reduces infection, including an asymptomatic cases by 89% and in symptomatic cases by 94%. The findings air from a pre published study not yet peer reviewed but based on a national database that is one of the world's most advanced a separate study. By Israel's Sheba Medical Center, published Friday in The Lancet medical journal found that among 7200 hospital staff who received their first dose in January There was an 85% reduction in symptomatic covert 19 within 15 to 28 days with an overall reduction of infections, including asymptomatic cases detected by testing of 75%. More research is needed to draw a definitive conclusion. But the studies are among the first to suggest a vaccine may stop the spread of the novel coronavirus and not just prevent the people vaccinated from getting ill. Dr Jon Swartz and Burn cold clinical professor emeritus of infectious diseases at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. The implications of this are enormous Republicans standpoints in vermin individual standpoint. If if the If these numbers are even numbers significantly less than this hold true, that is that once fully vaccinated. Well, first of all we know once fully vaccinated. It's Very, very, very, very unlikely. We're going to get seriously all and there's no evidence that you'll die after you being fully vaccinated. So we know that. But what if after you're fully vaccine, you get reinfected. We know you're not gonna get sick, but you could spread it. But what if you can't spread it? Or what? If it's very unlikely for you to spread it? It's gonna really mean that our masks they're going to come off sooner that we're gonna be hugging her loved ones a lot sooner right now. I'm fully vaccinated have been fully vaccinated now for this Just actually, three weeks today, um If I knew that I couldn't transmit this virus to my loved ones, I would My strategy would be very different. If I may ask you really come off. I could be hugging. Uh huh. But I don't know that yet, And so I have to still remain vigilant. And that is where a mask and social distance to be absolutely certain that I can't do that and think about all the health care workers. If the health care workers knew that they didn't it once they're fully vaccinated, they wouldn't transmit that would make an enormous difference in the hospitals. And think about just Transportation. It's just goes all the way down the line. So the implications are
Israeli study finds Pfizer vaccine 85% effective after first shot
"A new study shows a single dose of pfizer and biotechs kobe. Nineteen vaccine is eighty five percent effective in preventing symptoms of disease. Fifteen to twenty eight days. After it's given the findings of the israeli study published in the lancet medical journal come as more countries way whether to delay doses. Our reporter blonde pinch. Husky has more that seems to vindicate. The decision made in the united kingdom. To delayed second does in order to vaccinate more people as quickly as possible. More and more evidence is mounting from similar studies that delaying the second does is a sound policy. And if this were to be proven without a doubt then basically countries like the united states would find themselves being able to practically double the number of people they vaccinate overnight visor and biontech still recommend that a second dose of their vaccine be administered twenty one days after the first separately the companies also said today that they're vaccine can be stored and transported in normal freezers rather than at ultra cold temperatures of between minus one.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: US House votes to strip Republican of key posts
"Report. That they're covid. Nineteen shot may not only protect against disease but also help to prevent spread of the sars o. V. two virus the news was heralded by policymakers desperate to see a vaccine that can curb the spread of the disease but scientists have been a bit more cautious if confirmed the results would represent a breakthrough in the covid nineteen vaccine race so far the shots authorized or approved around the world have shown strong protection against moderate to severe disease but haven't definitively proven that people who get vaccinated are less likely to spread the covid nineteen virus but the data say. Some experts is confusing. So it's hard to adequately evaluate the companies claim that the shot can actually slow the spread of covid nineteen or not in the study published on the lancet pre print server which means the results have not been peer reviewed a gold standard for ensuring the scientific rigor of the findings astra zeneca and oxford scientists. Report that two doses of their vaccine was overall sixty six point seven percent effective in protecting against covid nineteen disease as part of its analysis. The research team also collected nasal swabs from and unvaccinated study volunteers in the uk every week and tested them for the virus. The scientists found that positive tests were about fifty percent lower among people who got two doses of the vaccine compared to those who weren't vaccinated because people who don't test positive are less likely to spread the virus the researchers extrapolated from those data. The astra zeneca shot can transmission of the covid nineteen virus. However that may be a bit of a stretch says dr carlos. Del rio executive associate dean of emory school of medicine. It's a leap of science. That i think still needs to be proven. He says what they show is that there was either decreased viral shedding or decreased detection a virus however they do not actually show that transmission was decreased. We can say less. Transmission is a possibility but the data on. That needs to come out says del rio. We wanna state the facts and don't want to overstate the facts. That concern was echoed by health officials. In switzerland who decided this week to reject the astra. Zeneca shot the data available and evaluated to date are not yet sufficient for approval. The country's regulatory bodies swiss medic said on february third part of the concern has to do with the fact that the astrazeneca study underwent a number of changes after the phase. Three trial was begun. A fact that some infectious disease expert say makes it difficult to interpret the results for a clinical trial as crucial as this one modifying the setup once it's underway is similar to changing the rules in the middle of a game the study originally set out to investigate a single dose vaccine but was changed to two doses when concurrently conducted early studies show that to set doses of the vaccine produced a stronger immune response further because of what astrazeneca said. Were mistakes in measuring doses. Some people in the study in the uk received a half dose for their first shot and a full dose for the second. one people also got different placebos. Some god benign nina cockles solution and some a saline solution. That could mean nothing. But it's also unusual to have two. Placebos sends that has the potential to introduce con founders into the study and because of limited supplies. Some study participants had to wait more than the three to four weeks originally planned between their doses while others when told they couldn't come back for their second dose at the time they expected chose to simply not get their second shot entirely. Frankly the way they did. These trials was really confusing. Says dr paul off it. Director of the vaccine education center at children's hospital of philadelphia and a member of the us food and drug administration's advisory committee that reviews vaccines for authorization or approval. This is the stuff you figure out in phase one. You don't fool around in phase three and see what works he says. Here's what the researchers report after getting a single shot. Seventy six percent of participants were protected against disease for up to three months. Afterwards from their their levels of antibodies generated against the virus which scientists believe are important to protect against disease began to drop those results suggest that while two doses of the astra. Zeneca vaccine preferable. A single dose could still be useful for about three months in controlling covid. Nineteen that might be especially useful information to act on if vaccines are in. Short supply.
Russia's Sputnik Vaccine Is Reported To Be 92% Effective Against COVID-19

Not only she didn't put this chart together. There's a chart out there that shows You know the use of What's the latest November 14th? So it's I mean within the last 10 days. And this shows that widespread early That these countries that use this That the cases of Then these countries like Mexico, France, UK, USA, Netherlands, Sweden, Iceland in Canada, and by the way, when you look at those some of those states some of those countries They don't use it. They are the highest death rate per million. Some of these were the highest death. Some of these who are giving it and I'll bring that up for you next hour. We're going the bonus hour because it really is interesting to see Costa Rica. Morocco, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, India, Greece, Algeria, Cuba By the way we never heard anything out of China. China's got like four deaths per million, at least if we can trust the data that's coming out of China. At first, I thought they were lying about the data, but now I think they're lying about how they're treating it. They either have a vaccine or they have been widely using. Is because you remember the bat lady. She was the one that was writing all about this Corona virus and doing studies on an emblem a blood. She was getting papers that were published in nature. She was getting papers published in The Lancet. I think maybe the New England Journal amends all forces to places she was getting stuff. And then she started talking about. She didn't use the word weaponized, but she started using language. It started making some of these people that published these scientific journals and medical journals. Feel uncomfortable. Boom. Thank you, Johnny. They were feeling really uncomfortable, and the reason they were is because they say, is she talking about weaponizing this Well before they kicked around of these journals and stop publishing or work. She made a little entry and one of the Peer reviewed scientific pieces that she put in the Lancet or one of these And she says, You know, we're doing a lot of experimentation this in our different labs, Wuhan and others. And some people have expressed concern about what if this were to escape from the lab. It could be a very deadly virus. But we don't worry about that. Because We have already done enough experimentation to know what will kill this thing, and it's Well, what's interesting about this, and I first saw that remember the epic times they had They had a documentary and this was early on in this whole pandemic. And there's wasn't called planned them. That's another one. But it was it was before that, and Actually had the guy on there was the host of it. And, um, we talked about this. And I was watching this because this is where I found all this stuff out about her writing, and they called it the bat Lady. And they were talking about you. All of us working, and it's in the I went back. I haven't had seen the Lancet study because, you know you know me. You know, I could watch the document in a while, but I'm gonna follow up and I'm gonna see where what they where they got their information. So I went to the Lancet study where the bat lady had written about this stuff, and I read all the things that they said that they had the quotes and everything from what they were talking about. And I want this is this is wild. I went back a couple of months later, after that, I was looking at something else. And I was trying somebody wanted. Where'd you get that about the You know, the It's gone. The whole hydroxy cork. One thing that she had written in the Lancet or whatever publication of was have been scrubbed from that. Now. I know you think I'm a conspiracy theorist. And whatever I'm just telling you, I had read it with my own eyeballs. I didn't save it. And so It's not all those things that I thought of the time you would have to save because this was before Donald Trump started talking about it. Once Donald Trump started talking about it. A lot of these peer review publications. They went back in time and started scrubbing any reference to You see, people say this thing is discredited. You're putting stuff in there about so they don't wanna be that guy or that gal that has this in their publication where people are referencing that say it's in the Lancet. Lancet, saying. We're the most respected journal in the world. We're not gonna have this in there because it's peer pressure. And they've done that with so many things that were in there before about treatments for hydrogen. The problem is It's killing folks. Seriously. When we come back in a moment, I'll go over some of these countries and tell you where. Costa Rica, Morocco, Ukraine, some of these others. That have been using widespread early And again.

No, I can't watch it. It's it's painful. It's if this exposes anything, it's that the Senate shouldn't be the Senate not the way it is. It really is hideous Whenever one warm yourselves with Cavanagh The whole Bork thing. I mean, but Ah, it just gets pain Pain. Painful to see these senators trying to act like they're important and act like they have something to say about something. And then just Shoot off, just hateful jibber. Anyway, she's being questioned because they're confirming Amy Cockney Barrett and should get confirmed. They gotta put her through living hell first. But according at one point said your show us your notes as in what you're writing down there. What are you reading from a piece of paper with your answers? You held up a blank. That's outstanding. It was very cool. Ah. Yeah, When you see what they say. If you see how sausages make made, you don't want to eat it. It's like politics really is disgusting in a waste of time. And our money as well. Uh, yeah. So I can't watch it. I went by the television today on the way out the door. No, they were still at it. Uh, I wanted to talk. Oh, here we go. It's the guy in Vegas. We just are a Nevada. We heard about this. Uh, Donald Trump is claiming that he is immune to China murder virus that he might be But this is the very first case. Another man in the Nevada that has AH gotten the China murder virus On two separate occasions, scientists and a better man contracted the Corona virus on two separate occasions and the second time With far worse scientists a 25 year old invented man. I came down with it. I guess. None of it's two separate strains, according to a Monday report, an infectious disease journal, The Lancet. That's a bigshot publication. Did you get in there? You should pay attention if your doctor now Ah, I've tried to point out to a doctor that the Lancet Talked about Ah Carrara hydroxy croak when being a decent alternative, and they didn't want to know about it, so you get doctors don't pay attention to the research. Because they're working with the political protocol, but I digress anyway. The Lancet researchers said that the unnamed 25 year old man contracted China murder virus twice became seriously ill. Following his second affection. The man resident of love that gives County here that's irrelevant reported had no Ah, immuno deficient conditions, Nor did he have any underlying problems. Despite these factors, Thie unnamed man who since recovered from both about Required hospital treatment following the second infection. First got it on April 18th. Symptoms abated by April 27th subsequent tested negative for murder virus on two separate occasions. Began exhibiting further symptoms. Now they say that researchers then sequence the irony C. We need to know about this stuff was dangerous, Dangerous, dangerous, dangerous. And we need to know that but You're not going to board it off by running around the mascot. They're gonna happen. That's a That's a false fear they've put in you called a false Medical flag. Researchers then sequenced the DNA from both demands. Virus samples concluded that he had been infected with two separate strange Now that's what I was getting to ever this earlier. Two. Separate straight. In other words, there's a bunch of this stuff out there. You're not safe because you get one. Maybe more than one or two, maybe. Three, maybe five. Scientists said the patient cut the murder virus on two separate occasions rather than original affection, bouncing back after becoming dormant, So if you get it, and you say you may have all the immunities in world build up to that one, but a brand new strain comes along with the human body has never seen before. Next thing you know, you got it again. And they say here Time was worse than the first. Yeah. Not much, but there's a little bit more to this. But the moral of the story is, is that as we've been saying all along, and I don't say this because I've been published in Lancet, I say this because it just is logic driven sense. You're not avoiding this virus. Will you? Can it You're going to be hermetically sealed about your B boy in a bubble. I can avoid it because you have Ah. Rubber gloves on while you're pushing a shopping cart on the the right way, making sure you follow all the right arrow saying you're going to go this way down the shopping happens there during the down the food store those green arrows. You know, I never pay attention to those. Not that I'm trying to be option. I'm just not paying attention. If I see something I don't know. I'll I've walked down the odds.

Faculty members of Duke University recently approved Ah, proposal to create a new miner called in Equality Studies. How did they get away with this stuff? I mean again when you watch the Senate what they're doing. To confirm Amy Cockney baron or pretty much anything else they do. It's infuriating and then hear stuff like this. But these these colleges, take people's money and come up with this kind of stuff that that's nothing worthy of anybody's study. Any quality studies and and they make it all highfalutin academic. We're going to study gender studies. Yeah, OK, Let's see. That's a boy. That's a girl. I think I just concluded that there's my white paper. Can you get that in The Lancet? The arts and Science Council at the Private University of North Carolina. That would be Duke voted in support of a new minor.

Alive but really slow and turn back the pace and aggression, all disease, so issue of steroids on whether it's thanks to methods. The cornerstone is really, really been a huge, huge breakthrough, the third reduction in mortality of patients with severe disease in intensive care units. That's a major step forward on we know. But in fact the trials that wrong going that I believe will deliver further benefits in the coming months. So watch this space you have you mentioned been at this field for 30 years on, you think back to the earlier pandemics, Ebola SARS that have come into being and your own publications response to it. You know, you say it's been nine months it feels to elect to all of us like it's been a lifetime, I think, but You comment about the speed with which the scientific community is responding to this compared to even recent past? Yes, it is. It's interesting because there's been a lot of slow, much criticism All China and the World Health Organization. I understand why, because this forest has turned all of our lives and our Children's lives upside down. On. It's understandable that we're angry about it. But in fact, if you actually look at the timeline, this has been the fastest. The international organizations on countries like China have ever responded. If I just take you back to the early two thousand's, when the very, very first saw outbreak to place a different virus related. It's a Corona virus. That outbreak of SARS in 2002 took place also in China. The Chinese response then with to deny the outbreak to cover it up and hope that it would go away, and it took months for the World Health Organization to force China to come clean. About what was going on What happened this time? The very first patient But we are aware ofthe, who was admitted to hospital was on the first of December. 2019 on by December 31st just one month later. Chinese government informed World Health Organization that there was an outbreak of unknown virus on this severe disease. And just one month after that, By the end of January, the World Health Organization had sounded the most important alarm signal that it concerns for declaring a public health emergency of international concern. It took Eight months when there was the recent Ebola outbreak W wait show to call a public health emergency of international concern and pose a much nastier virus from this Corona virus. It's been eight months on this occasion it took in one month, so both China outperforms themselves from any Previous pandemics. So, although I think we do have questions to ask of the Chinese government, we didn't have reasons to be concerned about some of W H chose response is certainly many other government government responses. Such is my government. And start to say the American government. I think we also need to recognize that parts of the response. We're really very quick. I want to dig into a little bit of that, onda bit. But before we do that, I'd like to spend a few minutes on the lancet itself. Because lots of lay people listening to our conversation right now. Can you tell me what the Lancet Is and what it's mission is, well. The loans it was founded by a 27 year old young surgeon called Thomas worked Cleon 18 23 on DH. He founded it to do two things and called It allows it for two reasons. A lance it wasa surgical implements on it was that who cut out The diseased 40. It was causing illness and his idea Waas a journal should cut out the corruption Hey, saw in medicine in the 19th century, so it had a political objective, and it was also going to be a scientific journal, and that's another. Meaning of the word Lance Lance. It is an arch, but let's light into a building. And so these twin ideas, But the journal was going to throw light on knowledge in medicine at the Saints home is fighting corruption on reforming medicine. These are the two ideas that founded the Genoa and what we try and do is simply re invent those ideas for a new generation. Tried to publish the best science that we confined and at the same time actors advocates for health as an important issue, you know? Authorities in our communities are you funded were magazine effectively? We're just like Ah, The New York Times or the Economist on DH, So we rely on subscriptions. We rely all appetizing and we, the loyal pharmaceutical companies that buy reprints from the journalist studies that we've published. So we have Ah, kind of mixed. A model off how well funded but we're very, very similar to any other magazine or what do you know about your readers and how they use the material that you published? So we publish for physicians, But we know that our readership goes beyond the physician community. I started reading the lance that when I was a medical student, and I hope that We still have the idea that we're reaching out to doctors and providing them every week with information that can help shape their practice and thinking, keeping them up to date. But we also know we've actually deliberately tried to do this as well in recent years, reached out to a broader audience ofthe people who work in public policy, because health is such a critical force in our culture in our society. It's a very little Was subject. Look at the debates You've heard in the states about affordable parents, and we want to be advocates for the very best science that can help inform policymakers and politicians about what they do now no politician, a policy maker is going to read a 20 page research paper in The Lancet. So what we can do through our editorials or through castle videos or columns that we rises. We can translate what research is telling us into ideas pros that will be understandable by the late person so That's what we hoped for. We hope to be a scientific journal. But also we want to have that other role of alarms that trying to reform society to make society a fairer, healthier and kind of place. You reference that the Lancet published the very first study of the Corona virus from the Chinese all the way back. Was it January that you published? So can you give us a sense of when this Eddie hit your editorial group. The conversations that were happening Excuse me happening about publication. Well, we've been working in China for about the past 10 or 11 years and in early January, we became aware that there was this outbreak of unknown known virus and well, so we immediately contacted our colleagues in the Chinese Ministry of Health called National Health Commission and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. On the China census with these control on prevention, and we asked them what is going on on DH. Essentially, can we help on by? Can we help? What we meant? Wass way, helped by publishing any work that you have to show the international community Now this is what I think the some of the criticism of China has been very unfair because Chinese have been accused ofthe cover. The outbreak well, far from it, because when we first made contact, we have editors who work in Beijing. When we first made contact with the Chinese government on DH offer her hand to help tell the international community about what was going on in China. They immediately said yes on very quickly. Gathered data They've been assembling in December in early January and wrote up four or five research papers, which we were able to publish at the end of Germany. And these were it's strange to go back and think these things we didn't know. But this was the very first case descriptions of how severe the infection wass Shipping patients into hospital into intensive care with a very high mortality way we published papers showing human to human transmission..

"Journal, The Lancet. You published a book this summer called the Cove. It 19 Catastrophe, and in it. You wrote the virus that causes covert 19 isn't going away. It will be with us for a very long time to come. The best we can hope for is peaceful coexistence. What does Peaceful coexistence look like well, it means negotiating a relationship with virus. If I can put it like that, when 19 hits countries, most countries locked down the only way to cut lines of viral transmission. Wass to stay at home, Stop social mixing, implement physical distancing and so on. And that's fine in the short term that can extinguish the outbreak, but is not a long term solution. As we are staying with our schools. Our economy's. It's just not possible to live life like that. So by peaceful co existence. What I mean is We have to re negotiate our relationship with the virus, which means, But we do have to leave our homes. We do have to go to work. We didn't have to send our Children to school. But we have to do it in a way that minimizes the risks to those who almost risked off covert 19. So that is that does mean that we have to live. Side by side with this farce, As of course, we live side by side with many other pathogens. Such a cz influenza. Bring me up to date if you would on the status and the UK specifically and in western Europe. Well, the spaces in the UK is that having had one of the worst In terms of mortality, one of the worst outcomes off the pandemic of any European country. I think Belgium is only worse in the United Kingdom. We'll know in a good phase where the numbers of deaths Reduced dramatically. There is still community transmission. But when that thing the evolution of the pandemic affecting a different demographic in different parts of our population, so in the early phase of the pandemic, the very sadly tragic Even the virus was hitting particularly older people. People from black nation minority communities. People who are living in nursing care homes on DH. They bore the brunt of the pandemic, and they had particularly high more talents is what we're saying is that the infection is more in younger people on course, in younger people, the risks off severe disease on death off for less. So the nature of the epidemic has shifted. We're saying something similar in many other European countries. Unfortunately, though, there are several European countries in particular Spain in front where we're seeing the outbreak shoot up again. It's coming back. It's not really a second wave. That would be the wrong way to describe it, but it's surging, so having suppressed The outbreak is now coming back because people are mixing again on going back to work and so on and so forth, So it's a slightly next picture. Some countries are doing well some countries doing this well and of course, the problem. The challenge for governments is managing quarantine because every week it seems that one country is out of risk in another country is in risk. So it's a very fluid situation. Is it too early in the midst of all this to look at the very Leastways. Those countries approach the virus initially and take learnings from it. No, I don't think it's too early. In most instances, those still there's still aspect of this pandemic that we don't understand. So I don't think we can be 100% definitive, but I think we can. We can say certain things. Now we understand the modes of transmission of this virus much better. The very beginning of the pandemic. We didn't appreciate as much as we do know that people who are asymptomatic what may often have the infection. Of course that poses a particular challenge. Because if you're not having symptoms, then you could be in particular danger of passing on the virus. If you're circulating widely in the community we didn't appreciate but The droplets spread off the virus could be in very, very, very tiny droplets. Normally, if a droplet is coming out of the nose or the mouth, gravity will take it down with on dso out off the range of people walking past you in the street or in a store. But we now know that these micro droplets, which just hanging in the air, and that's the one of the reasons why we're much more certain than we were. That mask wearing is important because these droplets hang in the air, and that poses a risk to us, so wearing a mask can be a way off, preventing getting those droppers ingested. Yeah, I would. I would say that. So there's three aspects of this worse. Science has really been focusing, and that is a widely available and inexpensive and quick testing process, The remediation therapies and also vaccine development. Let me start with the the testing process of so many people working on this around the world. From what you're able to see through the lens of the Lancet is the progress being made on Quick and inexpensive testing. Yes, very rapid progress again In the early part of the pandemic you'd have you would take a sample swore on God, you'd have to send it to a laboratory, whether it be quite an involved scientific testing process. Which would which was really take several days to come back. That was, there's just simply not fast enough to do the test. Traci nicely approach successfully. So we're no getting testing, which can be going through trials. Currently, we don't actually have any available, but I think we will soon where you could always get instant results on literally. You do the swap on You can take it to a machine and you can get the result always almost instantaneously. Now that's going to be really, really important because if the test trace and isolate system was goingto work, it needs to have a very, very rapid turnaround, certainly within 24 hours to get those contacts, so that's real progress. I think that by the end of the year we will have these very rapid tests. More widely available because those tests would allow us to do mass testing of the population and that's what we're really going to need as we go into winter months in the Northern Hemisphere when we're going to have problems with going to have this sauce for us, But we're also gonna have to contend with influenza. Let's talk about vaccines because as you and I are recording this Lancet is being sighted across the globe. If one does a Google search, for example, you'll see internationally the study that you've published just today on Russian vaccine progress. Can you tell me about that? Yes, this Russian vaccine has found itself caught in something of a geo political struggle. Unfortunately, But if we strip that away and just look at the science I would say the results of the spreading republished today are encouraging, but the study is small, and it would be premature to draw any definitive conclusions. Essentially what the Russian scientists did was to study the two components vaccine based upon what's called a virus, the virus that causes a common cold. And they gave it to 76 volunteers. So it's very, very small study if I just compared with the Oxford vaccine study that we published some weeks ago that was over 1000 volunteers. So this is a really small study and what they found in those 76 volunteers. Wass the vaccine produced strong in response, which you want to see the right kind of immune. His faults on DH ous Faras. We can tell it was safe with no severe adverse reactions and now what we need to do it and do the Russian scientist Janice. We need to go on a very large scale. What we call randomized trials where we can test that vaccine to really see if it actually works in preventing.

"While there's a delay, but once again The house is going to be voted in. And you know, we don't need a house. We don't need Nancy Pelosi. We don't need any of this stuff. I think Trump's Trump card for all of this. I think he's going to use H. Q. He mentioned this back in March. He did it for a reason. Even though the press came out and said, You know it will kill you. You can't use it hurts your heart. They you know they held up The Lancet report. They had a observational study. Those turned out to be fake. Now we have a lot of clinical trials during the whole entire time has been clinical trials. There has been tests on it. I think what he's going to do is since we had this entire time period. I think the FDA eventually is going to approve it, and he's going to use this. As one of his trump cards as we approach the elections. I think he's going to use it to say that people can go and they can vote in person. You don't have anything to be afraid of. There's no reason to be afraid because we have some type of medication that will cure you. And I think he's waiting for the right moment to use it, and it's going to blow their entire plan out of the water. And this is why I I think they're planning on something else to happen. Maybe during the election or a day after the election, where they might try some type of Cyber attack or black out or something like that. They shut it down to delay the election even further. But once again The Power grid. Is not as weak as everyone thinks. I do believe they have protection in place. They're prepared for this. And I don't think this is going to succeed. Just like everything else is not going to succeed everything. The deep state Has been trying to do. If you really look at it, it's been failing. They thought, Oh, if we have the pandemic, the economy will fall apart. The market would fall down to 5000 points, and we could blame everything on Trump. Look, Unemployment went up to 2025%. We're in a recession, but It worked in the opposite way, because, remember, those numbers are in the past. All he had to do was open up the economy. Automatically the numbers we're going to improve, so we went from 2025% unemployment all the way down to 10% unemployment That looks incredible for him. Because now it shows everyone that he can take a complete disaster and improve it. Plus What else is very interesting about the economy Part is that Obama used to say Well, this is my economy. I handed it off to trump. Well, he just severed that with the pandemic. Because now the economy is all hiss. Because we went into a recession as the mainstream media likes to say, and now he's brought it back. Retail is up. We see home sales are up. I mean, if you look at different sectors, they are starting to form a V just like he said. And I think as everything opens and opens up and everything fills the capacity we're going to see more and more of this. I mean his other Age of the plan is opening up schools, which will allow parents to go backto work and I do believe this was all planned out by Hiss team and they're just moving forward with it and the economy is going to improve. As we get closer to the election, especially with the payroll tax with the deregulation. It's going to look incredible. Everything they tried to do is failing. A concern was when he was recently in Ohio. He made the statement. Quote. You're not going to see me for a while. Spoke about his enemy said. We're not going to see me for a while and quote ended up flying back to and to his one of his club owner. Ships in bed Missed Bedminster, New Jersey your take on that. Well, I I think that there's a reason why he said that where, he said. There's a lot of enemies out there that want to get me especially the pharmaceutical companies, especially the deep state players. Because he's doing things that they do not want him to do, and I think everyone needs to understand that. The swamp. It's deep and wide. And this goes into not just government, not just Hillary Clinton, not just Obama, but every aspect of government. And businesses and sports and Hollywood. So he's making a lot of enemies. He understands this but to put America on the right track. He needs to do this, and I think the reason why, he said. This is that Because he's going Where the jugular And I think he's going to be in a separate location. The location that we're not going to know I even though he went to Bedminster, I think he's going to be insulated. I think he's going to be protected. I think what we're seeing right now is Ukraine angle. We had those raids in Miami and other places where they collected documents. We see Julian Osanai. He's going to testify about what happened with Seth Rich. We blame Maxwell, where A deposition was declassified so people could read it and see what was really going on. And we're having the drips of declassified the classified information about what happened with spy Gate Obama Gate Whatever you want to call it, and each time information comes out, it gets worse and worse, And I believe that That one question with Bill Bar when he was in front of the house when they asked him, you know, are you going to release the derm investigation before the election after election? And he said he has no problem releasing it before the election and the House representative of Florida so well, I have a Department of justice policies and you know what they say right? Well They don't say anything about going after people that aren't running. For some type of spot in government..

A recent. This is what they're saying from The Lancet. A recent Lancet article by men deep Mera and colleagues. Which reported adverse events of sort of associate with hydrochloric win or caloric win treatment in patients with covert 19. Has been retracted by three of the Arthur's, along with our linked comment that provided a commentary on the article in his findings because the veracity of the data Underlying this observation. A ll study could not be assured by the study off is subsequently An article that use data from the same database and which was authored by some of the same individuals was retracted from the New England Journal of Medicine. Nevertheless, the debate about hydroxy Claure Quinn or Luke or Quinn, whichever you want to call it for covert 19 continues. Here we provide a discussion of what is currently known about its proven and potential harms. I can't reach London. My boys asking me if anything's wrong. No, Nothing's wrong. It was just a false false Lauren text. They get freaked that when they I guess when they hear from me, they usually hear from their mother. So they hear from me and go. What's wrong? Just checking in on you, dude. Okay. Is that all right? Well, you never do that. What's wrong? So they say that this whole study that was not only in the Lancet about the New England Journal of Medicine is bovine scatology that said that it was causing heart attacks and all sorts of stuff which of course the mainstream media ran with, and the FDA rescinded their whole deal. And you know, saying of emergency use, And now we find out from a peer reviewed study that just came out a week or so ago that hydroxide chlorine queen is very effective. Against Corona. But this is something we've known. From the bat Lady from early on. Of the bat Lady is the one that's been studying these corona viruses and the effective treatment and she's been trying to weaponize. This is why I think this whole thing. Was some experiment from the Chinese. It went wrong and got out and they didn't mean for it to get out. But she's been working on weaponizing Corona virus for years and what we were told that somebody made this appointment. I've made the Or made the jump myself that this thing is going through a Rh conditioning systems and by the way you were talking about the what we call that the different types of air conditioning system one is Did I save that one, too? No, I didn't. I don't think anyway that the They're different types of air conditioning systems. And so there's a There's a certain kind. Hold on. Yes. Split A C units split. So I got Lizzie. Tell me not to. Ah, well, I'll just keep his name out of it. Anyway, If you were listening earlier, you heard me talking about another story. This is from the sun in The U. K. That says that the W H O. The WHO World Health organization Is saying now that they believe that any facility that uses a split A split A C unit. This is one that research relates here from inside instead of getting it from outside. That you're in danger of spreading the Corona virus. And so I might again. There's been my theory for weeks. Now This thing is being spread through the air conditioning units at these nursing homes. And so I was wondering, Can we go back now? And look at where these things were breaking out and find out if these nursing homes had split a C units? Well, this guy, says Phil I'm an electrical contractor who was wiring to new nursing homes and a multi family building and they all have split a C units because they're cheaper to install. Lowest, better gets the job. Cutting corners, are we So they're cheaper to install the split A C unit. So you install a split A C unit and you're recirculating there that's already in. In the You're not taking it from outside getting fresh air in And so if you got Corona virus in there, and you're in a nursing home, it just goes from room to room to room to room. Everybody is exposed to it. You're not getting fresh air in there. You're not. You're not Washing this out. You're not cleansing the year it's just going through again and again and again. I'm telling you, that is the only logical explanation for any of this. It doesn't make any sense otherwise of and again when people were saying Well, we could take over positive patient just put him back in the nursing home and just just isolate them. Not if you've got a split A C system. You can't Because it's taking the Corona virus and and now it's spring it on everybody else. Essentially And I've been trying to tell these folks how long have I been trying to tell these how long And nobody will listen. So we had another story today about the Kobe cases and this that and the other and I think this Phil Williams's some somebody was tweeting and I tweeted back to him. I said the rials story, Phil. Is that Tennessee is putting covert positive patients backing nursing homes and people are dying. And we have over 1/3 of our deaths from nursing homes. And you folks aren't reporting it. Why is that? Why is that? I don't understand why it is now occasion you'll see a story that says that we have unusually high number of nursing home death. But you don't ever see the reporters saying that were purposely putting covert positive patients back in nursing homes. You never see that You never see that so On the day where we have Governor Li signing the heartbeat Bill, which I am degree with. I mean, that's my standard. If if, if a fetus a child in the womb has a heartbeat, I think it's That's pretty much a sign that you've got a human being right? And a court now has already jumped in and struck that down. But he seems really concerned about the unborn babies, which I am too, but doesn't seem to be the least bit concerned about people who are already alive. Sitting in nursing homes that are getting Corona Vice, I don't understand. How do you jibe those, too? How do you make those to work in your mind?.

"To an ABC News special, bringing America back. What you need to know Here is ABC news correspondent TJ Holmes. Joining me now is ABC News chief medical correspondent Dr Jin asked him We got at least 23 states where we're seeing a sharp increase. In cases, but we're still having debate and controversy over mass. Are we still talking about Mass? What we are T J and public health officials, infectious disease specialists really focusing on this? I think there's been a lot of myth, misconception and controversy. So let's slowly go through it again. First of all, what we know masks have always been recommended. For sick people. Remember, we put them in hospital settings on sick people to prevent them from infecting others surgical masks in and 95 95 respirators like that are part of the peop e short supply. Issue list for health care workers and first responders. General face coverings. This is new data TJ have been shown to lower and reduce the spread of SARS cov, too, to approximately 3% that's recently published in the Lancet that can make a big dent in this pandemic and again. Face coverings. Do not, I repeat, do not cause low oxygen levels or a buildup of carbon dioxide in the blood, like many are saying, if that were the case, every time I did surgery, I'd be passing out. And that's just not really okay, Doc. When we started this whole thing, you and I were on set in the time we were talking about public health officials adamant you do not have to do this. This is not something we recommend for the general public. Something changed. But also can you understand why people might look a little 100% understand that and we I have owned up to that the CDC has owned up to that. Why has it happened? Because we have learned more. So here is the evolution of that If you remember back when we said not recommended because again sick people, But since then we learned that up to 45% of people who are infected with covert 19 Can show no symptoms and therefore spread the virus and it is spreading rapidly in the U. S s O measures Need to be taken. Science continues to evolve on this issue, and therefore recommendations change accordingly. We have to have an open mind when it comes to science and medicine, or we would never learned we would never advance. Okay, So the argument has always been. You need to wear it to protect your fellow man or woman. But there's some new data. What's in it for me? There might be something in it for you. Exactly. And I want people again to hear this because in the setting that we are experiencing right now, this is yet another reason to mask up. So there is new data on the fact just published in The Lancet that suggests that wearing a mask or some kind of face covering reduces the chances of you becoming infected. And since they're not Air tight They are not going to stop all viral particles from escaping or from entering. But they are better than nothing and almost anyone can wear one. From a medical standpoint. Remember, though this does not replace R six feet, at least of social distancing and hand hygiene. It's all three doctor. Thank you so much. We'll see you plenty here for this hour, and we need to turn back now to the record setting Corona virus increases we're seeing throughout the country. New cases are once again surging in Washington state. That, of course, where the first confirmed Corona virus case in the U. S was back in January Well on Saturday, Pierce County Washington recorded its highest number of new cases since April. The county seat there in Pierce County, Tacoma, The mayor of Tacoma, Washington. Victoria Woodard's is here with me now, Madame Mayor. Thank you for being with us, Teo. What do you attribute this latest surge? I was talking to our health director yesterday and what? What We really are attributing this to just people are getting out. Lord, there is nothing that ties it to any age group to any particular you know, it's not our care facilities. So it really is. People are just getting out about the weather is nice, and I think we're not paying close attention to our social distancing that wearing our masks as much as we should and not washing our hands like there it is. That's one thing people getting out. It's another thing for them not to be following the guidelines when they're out. I know the governor there. Put the mask requirement statewide in place. Ah, few days ago, but our people adhering to that when you go on the street out about in your town, are you encouraged or discouraged by the level of mask wearing that you're saying I'm incredibly encouraged by the level of mask wearing. I think people are listening. I just I think we've got to continue. Tio remind people they've got toe wear their masks, and they gotta wash their hands will be passing a resolution from the City Council, actually reminding people really trying to get people make the more aware of how important it is to wear your mask to socially distance. And to wash your hands. But I will tell you this. I've got more emails about making people were Mass that I have about the fact now that people have to wear what and different communities all over the country are phasing are trying to reopen in phases. You all I think it's phase two, but it's different in different places. What do you have a level of concern or fear? Now, where the chances even That you might have to go backwards instead of forwards in terms of reopening because of the surgery thing. I think what's gonna happen is we're going probably stay at phase two. Just a little while longer. I think trying to get the face three is too big of a jump for us right now. I don't think that will go backwards. I think that we have a community that listens. You could see that by the fact that we were able Tio flatten the curve. You know, after a while, and so we listen, and so I think we just need to make people more aware, but I think we'll stay in face too. Just a little bit longer Before we get the face three something else. I want to ask you about the mayor's for guaranteed income. This idea of universal basic income. It's something that people start to hear more about because of Andrew Yang when he was running for president talked about sending people $1000. Ah, month, But you have essentially signed on. You have a little coalition of mayors around the country who are pushing this idea. How could this work? How would it be helpful now to be able to give people a guaranteed check if you will every single month? How would that help? Even through a pandemic right now, you know, in Pierce County, which is the county that that that I live in appears county. We work with our United way and we talk about Alice and Alice is Ask that limited income constraint and working, And that is a person who gets up and goes to work every day, but still doesn't make enough money to take care of their basic needs. Almost 25% of the people in Pierce County are Alice and so To be able to offer a universal basic income would really help those struggling families who, you know they make it from paycheck to paycheck. But if they have a flat tire or their brakes, go out or does the simple list of emergencies Then they're completely setback. And especially in this time of Corona virus, so I think it would make a really big difference 25%. Of our families are Alice. So that's that's a huge group of people that could really use a hand out. Madame Mayor. Thank you for being here. Look, we went through it here in New York, and we're watching other communities across the country still go through. Ah lot with Corona virus that we are rooting for you pulling for you. Thanks for taking the time with us today. All right, thanks for having me..

"He he practiced medicine helped our audience understand how difference that phrase was then as opposed to now he really didn't study medicine as we understand the term because there was no medicine to study, really. There was no science. So just tell us a bit about what it was like to study medicine just by way of comparison to the visual image of what people will put their heads. When you use the phrase. Yeah. Medicine was in the most primitive era not much had changed from ancient Greece when gallon. Decided that all all the all diseases are due to something in the blood. So the best way to clean out the the diseases and illnesses is to bleed patients and bleeding was still the the common form of treatment for disease. When rush studied medicine they by then. They were now studying anatomy, but it was against all odds against the law and all countries to to use cadavers for that purpose of nonetheless did that and so they knew all body parts, but they really had no conception of disease as we know today, they they had no instruments the stethoscope had been invented. But they didn't know, and they really didn't know how to use it properly. I'm sorry. The stethoscope had not been invented the microscope had been invented. But not the stethoscope stethoscope wouldn't be invented until around eighteen fifty. So they had no tools. They had no scalpels. They had a thing called a Lancet, which is a knife. And they would cut into the arm pull out the vein and bleed the patient until usually they take a pint of blood. A day during the onus. Fortunately for them. And for the patients the human body replaces most of the blood within twenty four hours. So a pint of blood did not kill him. But in many cases, they bled so much that the patients would die of shocked after a certain amount of time. There's no more blood flows out the body goes into shock, and that's how George Washington died. He did not die of his illness. He had basically laryngitis, and and he died of it because he he and the doctors kept insisting each day pass that he went any better. Let's take more blood and finally they took so much that he died of shock. So that was a state of medicine there. There really was no medicine that were quacks all around the colonies, you would come into town on wagons and sell patent medicines and call themselves doctor this Dr that but patent medicines were nothing more than fruit.
