    What goes around comes around. I wonder if Trump was testing out the same Russian vaccine that Putin gave his daughter?

    According to my local CBS radio news station today, Trump's Tweet last night that he tested positive for the Covid-19 virus received more "likes" than any other Tweet he had ever made.

    Right now he is planning to be taken to the hospital and the news media is staring at his helicopter to see if he will walk to it or be carried to it on a stretcher. You can watch what happened on tonight's TV news. He has just left on Marine 1 heading to Walter Reed and apparently made it to the copter under his own power. He will be holding court and Tweeting from the Hospital until he gets better.

    Evan in his biological bubble he contracts covid,,. The double standard in the quality of healthcare has never been more obvious,,. Now that he has shared the virus with 7 million I'm sure when he recovers he will find away of sharing this wonderful healthcare with his fellow countryman, I see at very least he has finally found the business end of a face mask,,!!

    California continues to drive me crazy. The Governor has established rules for counties that allow them to move from various levels of pandemic restrictions depending upon the number of people tested and are found infected, number of people with Covid-19 in hospitals, etc. As an example: most indoor business activities, such as restaurants, gyms, hair salons and religious activities, are not permitted for counties in one phase, but are permitted in areas with a lesser phase of virus infection and transmission, with certain improvements in reported data.

    Just as many counties in the San Francisco Bay Are were about ready to move to a lesser set of restrictions, the Governor added a new one this week that upset their plans. The requirement had been that virus infection and transmission reductions were measured as an average for the entire county. But he just changed the rules to require the published standards to also specifically apply to any economically disadvantaged and/or racially diverse neighborhoods within each county, which typically are more impacted by the pandemic than most other areas of the counties where the residents have smaller families and can work from home. Those new requirements are now preventing all of the counties in the Greater Bay Area, other than the city of San Francisco (which has huge and expensive social programs), from relaxing their business restrictions as most of the people in their local "disadvantaged" neighborhoods either will not or can not follow virus prevention guidelines.

    Now the counties are wondering how they can make people comply with social distancing and proper hygiene requirements inside their homes when many of these people have to live in crowded conditions due to their economic and other situations. In other words, the state is trying to force local governments to impose its social engineering concepts onto their residents that either won't or can't comply with the virus rules without the state government needing to take the heat for doing it. Good luck with that. In the meantime, businesses are rapidly going broke and their customers are continuing to suffer by not being able to take advantage of their services.

    It is like playing a board game where the rules change every time someone makes a move.

    The latest odd virus restriction in San Francisco is that they are permitting movie theaters to open up but they are not allowing their concession stands to operate. Theater operators say that they obtain 60% of their income from the selling of snacks and drinks. As usual, no justification is being provided for this new regulation.

    Fauci: ‘Bizarre’ White House Behavior Only Hurts the President
    The nation’s top public-health expert tells The Atlantic that he isn’t going anywhere, despite the Trump administration’s newest attempts to undercut him.

    PETER NICHOLASED YONG
    JULY 15, 2020

    Anthony Fauci isn’t about to quit, despite the White House’s clumsy attempts to stain his public image. More so now than at any other point in their uneasy partnership, it seems that if President Donald Trump wants to be rid of Fauci, he’ll need to fire him. In recent days especially, the White House has stepped up efforts to discredit Fauci, a move he describes as “bizarre.”

    “Ultimately, it hurts the president to do that,” Fauci told The Atlantic in a series of interviews this week. “When the staff lets out something like that and the entire scientific and press community push back on it, it ultimately hurts the president.”

    He described the White House attacks against him as “nonsense” and “completely wrong.” He also seemed dismayed that they are coming at a time when COVID-19 is surging across the country, deaths are once again rising, and Americans remain deeply confused about how to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.

    Targeting Fauci seems like a tragic misuse of White House time and energy if officials’ aim is to defeat the coronavirus. But Trump appears more concerned with discrediting Fauci. Over the weekend, the White House sent multiple news outlets a document that smacked of opposition research. It carried a list of statements Fauci had made about COVID-19, purporting to show that he had contradicted himself about the outbreak and that he “has been wrong on things.” In one example from an NBC interview in February, the White House omitted Fauci’s full quote, giving the impression that he’d misjudged the outbreak’s danger. Peter Navarro, Trump’s top trade adviser, wrote an op-ed for USA Today yesterday claiming that Fauci has been “wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.” (A Trump communications aide tried to distance the White House from the op-ed this morning.)

    Seems the west has much to learn

    Meanwhile in Taiwan, folks get 5 masks in the mail every week, national health care that costs like $5 to see a doc, UBI for those under quarantine, contact tracing, food delivery services, 14 day quarantine for new visitors, so many masks they're donating millions to stupider countries, offered zoom conferences on best practices for other countries --- 11 deaths total since Feb 2020. 3.8% unemployment and businesses open.

    2nd Wave in New Zealand On Wednesday OCT 7, New Zealand moved to lift the last of its restrictions in Auckland after 10 days with no new cases linked to a cluster that first surfaced in August. The government will now allow unrestricted gatherings, and trips on public transit without social distancing or masks, in the city of 1.6 million people.

    China is rapidly increasing the number of people receiving its experimental coronavirus vaccines, with a city offering one to the general public and a biotech company providing another free to students going abroad.

    The city of Jiaxing, south of Shanghai, is offering a vaccine under development by Sinovac, it said in an announcement Thursday. It said high-risk groups, including people who are "responsible for the basic operations of the city" will receive priority, but that residents who have emergency needs can also sign up.

    The vaccine is in the final stage of clinical testing, but has not yet been approved. The city government said it is being provided under an emergency authorization.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci's career under six US presidents
    Since 1984, he has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

    Fauci has served under six US presidents, starting with Ronald Reagan, and in 2008 he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    As the nation's top infectious disease expert, Fauci has worked on the federal response to AIDS, Ebola, the Zika virus and anthrax scares, just to name a few.

    President Donald Trump claimed Dr. Anthony Fauci as a "disaster" who has been around for "500 years." Claims if he would have listened to Fauci there would be 7 or 800,000 deaths in the US,,.
