    How do you know those 'older adults' had Corona? I assume they told you.
    How did they know they had "it"? Presumably, A doctor told them.
    Now how would the doctors possibly know that? PCR or protein test are the only means offered now, alternatively more logistics involved: e-microscopy of samples.

    There is only one little problem with that story. None of those means can actually tell you that you had "Corona".
    A virusmodel created from goop analysis (not actual purified virus) is no valid reference.
    The RNA matching the markers is fished out of an universe of highly variable RNA-molecules. The test won't be able to tell you whether it is from presumed virus, just that there are some commonalities with the virus model. In other words. Completely meaningless.
    With the proteins it's virtually the same.
    Finding something under the e-microscope that "looks like a virus" is also meaningless. How would they know this isn't simply cell debris or exosomes? Simple answer: They don't, they just pretend to. Period.

    Now the symptoms aren't really this special compared to other respiratory diseases. Anybody gets them ones in a while. Me doctor dodger gets'm barely or very mildly. In fact it isn't even bad for you. The flu with coughing, fever, sneezing, snot coming out of your nose and respiratory tract is a maintenance process. Garbage out, to make space for healthier, more adequate cells. So it's idiotic to suppress this. Unless you are someone selling medication and treatments of course. Then chronic disease in your patients is a gold mine.

    The jews Behind All These Anti-Covid Vaccines



    All these anti-covid vaccines are developed by jews or at least with jewish involvement.



    The russian one is no exception:

    "Prof. Zeev Rotstein, the CEO of Israel’s Hadassah Medical Center told Radio 103FM that the hospital is involved in Russia’s clinical safety trials."

    Just a coincidence, right?

    What makes Leif Erickson "Jewish"? He is a Swedish manager (wiki writes "businessman", but I didn't see him doing business on his personal account there). Of course one can argue that it is stooges upfront there in the first place. But needs to be shown. The ownership structure of those companies may simply be more insightful as a bunch of top managers, who are often interchangeable Yes-man.

    I don't think selling the socalled COVID-Vax is actually the first prize they are aiming war. Supposedly it's to immunise you against "Coronavirus" (Something preposterous on its own). But in the design description the purported goal is to make your immune-system respond to a specific protein type. What that will do is, is interfering with protein production and distribution in the body. If that protein is used in certain processes your chances of getting chronically sick is increased. Specific Protein Deficiency would be the result of this. Making people needy for protein replacement therapies, which at least one of the manufacturers has in its program.

    Swedish professor quits COVID-19 research amid hostility over his findings



    A Swedish professor of epidemiology has quit researching COVID-19 after facing fierce backlash over his findings that the illness poses a low threat to children — undermining the political argument that schools can’t reopen.

    Jonas Ludvigsson, a professor of clinical epidemiology at the Karolinska Institute, said he has lost sleep as a result of the “angry messages through social media and email” assailing his study and partly blaming him for Sweden’s contrarian COVID-19 strategy, the College Fix reported.

    His research focused on children ages 1 to 16 during the first wave of the pandemic last spring, including those with “laboratory-verified or clinically verified COVID-19, including patients who were admitted for multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children” because it’s “likely” related to the bug.

    Only 15 children went to the ICU — a rate of 0.77 per 100,000, according to the report. Four had “an underlying chronic coexisting condition” and none died.

    As far as teachers, “fewer than” 30 ended up in the ICU during the same period — a rate of about 19 per 100,000.

    Ludvigsson also noted that children weren’t wearing face masks, while the rest of Swedish citizens were simply “encouraged” to practice social distancing.

    Now, due to the backlash Ludvigsson faced over his research, Sweden plans to boost academic freedom protections in law, according to the College Fix.

    Higher education minister Matilda Ernkrans told the British Medical Journal that the government is planning to amend the Higher Education Act to ensure “that education and research must be protected to enable people to freely discover, research and share knowledge.”

    Karolinska Institute president Ole Petter Ottersen told the journal that “hateful and scornful accusations and personal attacks cannot be tolerated,” whether against the pediatrician or other researchers who have “retreat[ed] from the public debate after being threatened or harassed.”

    Ludvigsson said his letter to the editor, which was published in the Feb. 18 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, had gone through several revisions and “formal external peer review,” including statistically.

    Black, Latino Seniors in Virginia Get COVID-19 Vaccine Priority as White 85-Year-Olds Wait



    Judicial Watch, February 23, 2021

    In a move that is outraging senior citizens throughout Virginia, the state is shifting its COVID-19 vaccination distribution to prioritize black and Latino residents even as desperate 85-year-olds interviewed by Judicial Watch struggle to get the shot. Like several other states, Virginia is vaccinating its population in phases, with healthcare personnel and residents of long-term care facilities receiving utmost priority. With that population completed, according to the Virginia Department of Health, the second group includes a peculiar combination of frontline workers, people 65 and over, those with medical conditions, incarcerated criminals and those living in homeless shelters or “migrant labor camps.”

    As if it were not bad enough that law-abiding seniors are considered as important to Virginia officials as convicts and illegal immigrants, now comes another slap in the face. In the next few weeks, the state will give preference to black and Latino residents 65 and over while much older white seniors, many in their 80s, cannot secure an appointment to get inoculated. The plan was announced a few days ago by Dr. Danny Avula, who was appointed by Governor Ralph Northam this year to be the state’s vaccine coordinator. A Richmond news report calls it the latest step taken by Virginia to bake equity into its vaccination policies. In recent weeks, the article says, roughly 10,000 vaccines were channeled specifically toward trusted clinics in neighborhoods with older black residents.

    A computer-savvy, 85-year-old Virginia man who has tried in vain for weeks to get vaccinated told Judicial Watch the new state order giving minorities preference is “particularly disturbing.”

    “The governor has decided who gets the vaccine based on race/ethnicity,” said another elderly Virginian who cannot get the shot after learning about the new distribution plan in a local media report.

    Explosion hits Dutch coronavirus testing center

    Officials said the explosion appeared to be intentional. Several windows were shattered, but no injuries were reported in the early-morning blast.



    Dutch police on Wednesday said a coronavirus testing location in a town north of Amsterdam appeared to have been intentionally targeted, after an explosion went off early in the morning before the site had opened.

    The blast in the town of Bovenkarspel, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) outside of Amsterdam, shattered windows but did not cause any injuries, police said, adding that they had cordoned off the area to investigate.

    The explosive "must have been placed" there, police spokesman Menno Hartenberg told Reuters, adding that "something metal" had caused the blast.

    Blast wouldn't 'happen by accident'

    "We don't know yet exactly what exploded, the explosives experts must first investigate," Hartenberg said. "What we're saying is that something like that doesn't just happen by accident, it has to be laid."

    Police reported five shattered windows, after the blast took place at around 7 a.m. local time (0600 GMT/UTC). There was only one guard present at the time of the blast, and so far, officers have not identified any leads on the culprit.

    A bomb squad was sent to determine whether any explosive material remained at the scene, public television network NOS reported.

    Wednesday marks the first day in several months in which lockdown measures have been slightly eased, with hairdressers reopening and non-essential stores allowed to accept a small number of visitors by appointment. A night-time curfew from 9 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. remains in place.

    Tensions high over restrictions

    In January, a testing center in the community of Urk, which is also slightly north of Amsterdam, was set on fire during a protest against coronavirus measures. That blaze marked the start of several nights of rioting over restrictions and a curfew, in some of the most violent protests the country has seen in decades.

    A court last week ordered the government to immediately lift the nationwide curfew, ruling that the government had wrongly used emergency powers to bring it into force.

    Testing and vaccination centers have routinely been targeted, as a movement to counter the measures in place grows. In January, a man was arrested in Wales after a package was sent to a vaccination production site, forcing a partial evacuation.

    According to a report published on Tuesday by the Safeguarding Health In Conflict Coalition, frontline health care workers and facilities were subjected to more than 1,100 acts of violence worldwide in 2020.

    Arab Americans, Deemed ‘White’ in Government Records, Suffer an Unseen COVID-19 Crisis



    Funeral director Goulade Farrah is haunted by his clients, whose bereavement over loved ones lost to COVID-19 plays over and over in his head.

    Roughly 90% of the deaths Farrah handles at Olive Tree, the mortuary he oversees in Stanton, California, about 26 miles south of Los Angeles, are COVID-19-related. Many are Arab Americans.

    Arab Americans and their advocates fear alarming rates of COVID-19 infection and deaths in their communities – but there is little data to back up these concerns because most are categorized as “white” by the federal government.

    The nation’s 3.7 million Arab Americans are unable to self-identify as such on the census and other government forms. As a result, official health care data can be hard to come by, and experts and community leaders are forced to rely on patchwork, often self-compiled data.

    The issue has been exacerbated by COVID-19 in a community facing numerous risk factors for the virus, including large numbers of immigrants and refugees, poverty, multigenerational households and high rates of hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.

    “We are told we are white when in reality, we are deprived of proper and accurate statistical data,” Hasibe Rashid, of New York City’s planning department, said during a web panel this week on the virus’s social and economic effects on the city’s Arab immigrant and refugee populations. “We are expected to conform to something we do not agree with, and worse yet, something society does not see us as. We do not live the life of white privilege.”

    Without a racial or ethnic identifier, community coronavirus infection rates are “extremely unreported,” said Madiha Tariq, deputy director of the Community Health and Research Center run by ACCESS, a Dearborn, Michigan-based social service agency serving a largely Arab American population in several surrounding counties. “This has led to a false sense of security among community members who believe this is not a disease that impacts them.”

    Hasan Shanawani, a pulmonologist in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and president of American Muslim Health Professionals, a nonprofit group focused on public health, said Arab Americans’ unrecognized status consigns them and their health issues to obscurity.

    “They all just check the ‘white’ box and get absorbed into the mainstream,” he said.

    Raed Al-Naser, a critical care physician at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, California, in east San Diego County, noticed a disproportionate number of Arab Americans coming through the intensive care unit for COVID-19-related complications during the pandemic’s first waves early last year.

    As president of the National Arab American Medical Association’s San Diego chapter, he checked with colleagues in other Arab American enclaves around the country, who confirmed they saw the same thing.

    By summer, Al-Naser was penning editorials in local publications, hoping to bring attention to the issue. He combed through hospital records from March through December and determined that of those admitted to Sharp Grossmont with COVID-19-related conditions, 11% were Arab American – about twice the rate of admissions he typically saw for that population.

    More than 500,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. Federal data shows that compared with non-Hispanic whites, Blacks are nearly twice as likely to die from the virus, while death rates among Hispanics and Native Americans veer closer to two and a half times in comparison. There is no official data on Arab Americans, who are bundled into the white category.

    The nation’s Arab American population has at least doubled since 2000, driven by the arrival of mostly Muslim immigrants and refugees, the product of multiple wars and instability in the Middle East. Coming from embattled places such as Syria, Iraq, Yemen and the Palestinian territories, they’ve joined larger populations of more established, mostly Christian Arab Americans with roots in Lebanon and Egypt, as well as Arab Chaldeans, an ethno-religious group from northern Iraq.

    Many Arab Americans have avoided being screened for the virus, either unaware of available services or so worried about providing for their families that they don’t want to face a positive test result.

    The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and Arab American Institute has fought to change the census classification of Arab Americans as white since the 1980s. As 2020 approached, confidence grew that the federal bureau would finally add a so-called MENA option, for people of Middle Eastern or North African background, to its questionnaire.

    Checking the “white” box creates a certain dissonance for Arab Americans, whose experience – especially after 9/11 – hasn’t always offered the accompanying privileges of being white.

    There’s more at stake than identity: Without a racial or ethnic identifier, Arab Americans miss out on funding for cultural- and language-specific social and health services available to other marginalized groups – services that advocates say are crucial to address issues uniquely faced by the community.

    A Census Bureau study in 2015 found that when offered the MENA option, people from Middle Eastern and North African regions who previously self-identified as white plunged from 85% to 20%.

    In 2018, Trump administration officials tabled the MENA option, saying more research was needed to decide whether the category should be considered an ethnicity rather than a race – meaning the community’s next chance to be federally recognized won’t come until 2030.

    The lack of data is crucial when it comes to countering skepticism, misinformation and pandemic fatigue, issues that also plague the general population, experts said.

    It looms larger given the Arab American community’s risk factors – including cultural and language barriers and, for many, a distrust of government authorities fed by experiences here and elsewhere. Some feel stung by a record of post-9/11 vilification and xenophobia, while others fall prey to rumors bandied in communication networks tied to their homelands or Arabic-language sources on social media platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp or YouTube.

    Advocates say some in the community struggle to socially distance because of the largely social culture.

    Advocates fear that the same factors fueling doubts about the virus drive skepticism about COVID-19 vaccines. Without clear data on Arab Americans, many fear officials won’t know whether Arab Americans are receiving the vaccine in proportionate numbers.

    In Dearborn, Meroueh said that despite having two chemist siblings who work on virus vaccine research, she had to accompany her Lebanese mom to a clinic to ensure she went through with her first shot after a neighbor spouting sketchy information in her vastly Arab American neighborhood filled her with last-minute doubts.

    In San Diego County, public health professor Wael Al-Delaimy said a small, unpublished survey of Syrian refugees conducted by his students at the University of California-San Diego found a troubling two-thirds of respondents unwilling to be vaccinated. Survey results published in December showed that barely 24% of Blacks and 34% of Latinos planned to get the vaccine, compared with 53% of whites.

    Police break up anti-lockdown protest ahead of Dutch elections

    Police use water cannon and batons to disperse anti-lockdown protesters from a field in The Hague.



    Police have used water cannon and batons to disperse a crowd of several thousand anti-lockdown protesters gathered at a field in the centre of The Hague a day before elections in the Netherlands.

    The demonstration was broken up after the protesters flouted social distancing rules and ignored police warnings to disperse. Local media said several arrests were made during the clashes. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

    The Netherlands has been under a tough lockdown since late January with gatherings of more than two people banned, restaurants and bars shut and with the first night-time curfew since World War II.

    Dutch authorities had on Sunday stopped train services to The Hague, the seat of government, to prevent more protesters from arriving. Police initially told people to go home and announced over loudspeakers that the event was over and warned they would break up the protest by force if necessary.

    Before the protest was dispersed, several people carried a homemade banner emblazoned with the text in Dutch “Love & Freedom: No Dictatorship”. Many in the crowd, gathered at the central Maliveld field in the city, were holding yellow umbrellas in a show of opposition and chanted “love, freedom, stop dictatorship”.



    One demonstrator carted a makeshift set of stocks with a photo of Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s head stuck in the middle and a sign saying: “If you love the Netherlands, vote them out.”

    Voting in the election will start on Monday, with polls open for three days to help ensure social distancing at polling stations. Rutte’s conservative VVD Party appears set to get a new four-year mandate.

    A majority of voters reluctantly support the lockdown, given the Netherlands’ current coronavirus infection rate which is towards the high end of Europe’s range.

    But the curfew, which has been extended until the end of March, prompted several days of rioting across the country when it was first imposed on January 23.



    In recent weeks, smaller demonstrations have happened in Amsterdam, with riot police repeatedly called in to shepherd away protesters who refuse to leave.

    They reflect a growing impatience among a small section of society at the lockdown that has seen businesses including bars, restaurants and museums shut down since mid-October.

    The country of 17 million has registered more than 1.1 million COVID-19 cases and more than 16,000 deaths in the pandemic.
