    Nextdoor Helps Spread Neighborhood Snitching By Showering Law Enforcement With Gifts



    Community platform Nextdoor is going to great lengths to become the go-to app to snitch on your neighbors.

    According to a CityLab article, Nextdoor is showering law enforcement with all-expenses paid vacations to their headquarters in San Francisco, California all in an effort to gain law enforcement acceptance and put police on Public Agency Advisory Councils.

    Couples should wear face masks during sex, new study insists



    Safe sex during the coronavirus pandemic might soon require protection beyond just the nether regions.

    A new study from researchers at Harvard University says that hooking up carries some risk for transmitting COVID-19 from one partner to the other and recommends — among other practices — wearing a face mask while doin’ it.

    The research, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, ranked frisky situations based on how likely it is to catch coronavirus while in the act. Researchers recommend wearing a mask for the riskiest sexual scenario: Sex with people other than those with whom one is quarantined.

    If you have an out-of-house coronavirus crush, the study says — besides keeping your mask on — you should avoid kissing, any oral-to-anal act and anything else that involves semen or urine. Shower before and after, and clean the space with alcohol wipes or soap.

    The study also mentions that having sex with people who are together in quarantine is safer, but there is still a risk. For instance, if one partner goes outside to run an errand and is exposed to the virus, they can transmit it to the other. Even if that person is ultimately an asymptomatic carrier, they can still infect the other.

    The safest approach to sexual activity, according to the researchers, is not having any. Abstinence, they say, is “low risk for infection, though not feasible for many.” Another option, they add, is masturbation.

    Other recommendations have come out since the coronavirus outbreak in the US, with some of them providing graphics to enhance the lessons. In April, the Oregon Health Authority released a sex guide that went viral, just weeks after the same happened to one released by the NYC Department of Health. The Oregon example stood out for its illustrations of condoms, a fleshlight and a peach, and NYC’s with its vivid warning for anal rimming.

    Oh man I am so tired of this Covid 19 crap ....and I'm grateful that I have been so lucky not to be enforced to wear masks or not bike on empty streets!


    People need to wake up and look at the elites and Bill Gates and start thinking for them selves.

    I don't know if I already posted about this or not but my aunt's boyfriend died of COVID-19 on April 30th. He is the only person I know of that had the virus.

    Nonsense

    I know a handful of seniors that go out without masks and informed me that they won't wear them except at Dr. offices. They have been through many other epidemics like polio and Asian Flu 1956. Currently, no one above got sick since they washed hands and practiced 6 foot distancing. They also don't go out during peek hours at stores. Soon, the governments will tell us that family members should not be hugged, kissed, and touched on arms or face in fear of passing the disease.
    All this nonsense has to do with the failure of marking households affected by Covid19 with a sign "quarantined" as in the old days. They make it sound like everyone possibly has Covid19, which is ridiculously wrong. This is the classic attitude, "We have to treat everyone the same." Now, people are rioting with masks on in the US. So, is it safe to meet up in thousands with masks and destroying property?" Some dog parks are still closed due to contact but what about protests?

    Frankly, I'm personally embarrassed about the so-called Covid-19 "pandemic" issue (among others) that have created such economic hardship while transforming citizens into subjugated 'sheeple'... And for what true purpose are these 'clown world' changes actually being done?

    I think it's time people took those ridiculous tampons off their faces and told the self-styled "experts" in the healthcare industry (as well as the military industrial complex) to take a fast flying leap at the moon.

    BTW, the last time I checked, mandatory laws (in America, at least) are enacted through the branches of our State and Federal governments, not by 'scientists'.

    I don't know about you folks, but I'm done complying with all of their deceitful BS!
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I wish I could not wear a mask. I live in jew york state personal fiefdom of that moron Cuomo.
    I have to put on a mask just to walk into a Walmart just to go shopping meanwhile 90% of the stores
    are closed. The whole thing is the most obvious pile of bulls!t i've ever seen. It's tailor made for every
    petty little tyrant in the world to make your life miserable. I've also noticed the virus
    seems to be smart enough to tell who a protestor is. Then theres this little gem I found.
    Nurse at New York hospital says Elmhurst does NOT treat terminal patients. They let them die & use COVID POSITIVE as a fake cause of death for money. Now you know how BLUE states & SOCIALIST countries ratcheted up the death count.

    Coronavirus: WHO rethinking how Covid-19 spreads in air



    The World Health Organization has acknowledged there is emerging evidence that the coronavirus can be spread by tiny particles suspended in the air.

    The airborne transmission could not be ruled out in crowded, closed or poorly ventilated settings, an official said.

    If the evidence is confirmed, it may affect guidelines for indoor spaces.

    An open letter from more than 200 scientists had accused the WHO of underestimating the possibility of airborne transmission.

    The WHO has so far said that the virus is transmitted through droplets when people cough or sneeze.

    "We wanted them to acknowledge the evidence," Jose Jimenez, a chemist at the University of Colorado who signed the paper, told the Reuters news agency.

    "This is definitely not an attack on the WHO. It's a scientific debate, but we felt we needed to go public because they were refusing to hear the evidence after many conversations with them," he said.

    Another signatory - Professor Benjamin Cowling of Hong Kong University - told the BBC the finding had "important implications".

    "In healthcare settings, if aerosol transmission poses a risk then we understand healthcare workers should really be wearing the best possible preventive equipment... and actually the World Health Organization said that one of the reasons they were not keen to talk about aerosol transmission of Covid-19 is because there's not a sufficient number of these kind of specialised masks for many parts of the world," he said.

    "And in the community, if we're thinking about aerosol transmission being a particular risk, then we need to think about how to prevent larger super spreading events, larger outbreaks and those occur in indoor environments with poor ventilation, with crowding and with prolonged close contact."



    WHO officials have cautioned the evidence is preliminary and requires further assessment.

    Benedetta Allegranzi, the WHO's technical lead for infection prevention and control, said that evidence emerging of airborne transmission of the coronavirus in "crowded, closed, poorly ventilated settings that have been described, cannot be ruled out".

    For months, the WHO has insisted that Covid-19 is transmitted via droplets emitted when people cough or sneeze. Droplets that do not linger in the air, but fall onto surfaces - that's why handwashing has been identified as a key prevention measure.

    But 239 scientists from 32 countries don't agree: they say there is also strong evidence to suggest the virus can also spread in the air: through much tinier particles that float around for hours after people talk, or breathe out.

    Today the WHO admitted there was evidence to suggest this was possible in specific settings, such as enclosed and crowded spaces.

    That evidence will have to be thoroughly evaluated, but if it is confirmed, the advice on how to prevent the virus spreading may have to change, and could lead to more widespread use of masks, and more rigorous distancing, especially in bars, restaurants, and on public transport.

    Americans will wear masks for ‘several years’ due to coronavirus: expert



    Health experts won’t ask Americans to take off their masks anytime soon.

    Source: NYP

    That’s the take of Eric Toner, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. He has been preparing for an outbreak like the novel coronavirus as part of his work for years.

    Johns Hopkins practices virus simulations as part of its preparedness protocol, with the goal of offering public health experts and policymakers a blueprint for what to do in a pandemic. One of those simulations took place in October 2019, when Toner and a team of researchers launched a coronavirus pandemic simulation in New York, running through various scenarios on how residents, governments and private businesses would hypothetically react to the threat.

    One thing that stood out to him: Face coverings are a vital defense to stop the spread of the virus. He believes COVID-19 won’t slow down in the US even as states start to slowly reopen.

    “There’s going to be no summertime lull with a big wave in the fall,” he said as part of CNET’s Hacking the Apocalypse series. “It’s clear that we are having a significant resurgence of cases in the summer, and they’ll get bigger. And it’ll keep going until we lock things down again.”

    The US recently added about 43,000 COVID-19 cases to its 2.9 million total, according to the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The death total has surpassed 130,000.

    Toner, contrasting the novel virus to seasonal influenza, said until there is a vaccine, communities’ best defense against it is through creating distance and wearing masks.

    “I think that mask wearing and some degree of social distancing, we will be living with — hopefully living with happily — for several years,” he said. “It’s actually pretty straightforward. If we cover our faces, and both you and anyone you’re interacting with are wearing a mask, the risk of transmission goes way down.”

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top official handling the US COVID-19 response, said recently he was cautiously optimistic that there could be a vaccine for the virus by 2021.

    For those who refuse to wear a mask in the interim, Toner said, they’ll eventually wise up.

    “They will get over it,” he says. “It’s just a question of how many people get sick and die before they get over it.”

    All I can say is this....

    If I don't see a huge spike of cases in the US (especially within these cities where Antifa and BLM protested, rioted and looted all in close proximity and often without masks) , I'll know one of two things.


    1... this spike is being covered up by the wealthy-owned mass media to not discredit BLM and Antifa!

    or

    2... there is no spike because this whole thing is BS! It's like a flu which kills many tens of thousands every year but the media pretty much ignores

    5 Million Cases Worldwide, 650,000 Deaths Annually: The Seasonal Flu Virus is a “Serious Concern”, But the Wuhan Coronavirus Grabs the Headlines

    Either way, I expect news about a huge spike ...... if I see no mention of this in the near future, I'll know I'm being lied to (once again)!
