Infected after 5 minutes, from 20 feet away: South Korea study shows coronavirus’ spread indoors

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Dr. Lee Ju-hyung has largely avoided restaurants in recent months, but on the few occasions he’s dined out, he’s developed a strange, if sensible, habit: whipping out a small anemometer to check the airflow. It’s a precaution he has been taking since a June experiment when he and colleagues recreated the conditions at a restaurant in Jeonju, a city in the southwest of South Korea, where diners contracted COVID-19 from an out-of-town visitor. Among them was a high school student who was infected with the coronavirus after five minutes of exposure from more than 20 feet away. The results of […]

Trump and Friends Got Coronavirus Care Many Others Couldn’t – The New York Times

by health and nutrition advice journalist
In fact, the antibody treatments are so scarce that officials in Utah have developed a ranking system to determine who is most likely to benefit from the drugs, while Colorado is using a lottery system. Dr. Matthew Wynia, director of the Center of Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Colorado, said that giving the powerful access was patently unfair. “That’s one of the reasons why we decided that we would allocate this only through the state and only through this random allocation process,” he said, “so that no one could get a leg up by virtue of their special […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Once again some people did something – and it’s all about the Benjamins. From the 2019-2020 election cycle, Ilhan Omar’s campaign paid nearly $2.8 million to the consulting firm E Street Group, which is co-owned by her husband. In the third quarter of 2020 payments to the group accounted for 70% of total disbursements. While her husband was being enriched by Omar’s campaign donors, we the taxpayer were unknowingly giving him a helping hand too. According to the New York Post: “Tim Mynett’s E Street Group LLC was given $134,800 this year as part of the Paycheck Protection Program; he […]

Yale Prof Denounces Trump’s Handling of Coronavirus as ‘Awfully Close to Genocide’ | National Review

by health and nutrition advice journalist
A Yale University professor said the Trump administration’s mishandling of the coronavirus resembled “genocide” and questioned whether officials could be held responsible under international law. “What else do you call mass death by public policy?” Dr. Gregg Gonsalves, a professor of law and epidemiology at Yale, asked in a tweet last week. “So, what does it mean to let thousands die by negligence, omission, failure to act, in a legal sense under international law?” Gonsalves continued. “And I am being serious here. What is happening in the U.S. is purposeful, considered negligence, omission, failure to act by our leaders. Can they […]

Former OSHA officials sound alarm as Trump tells corporations they don’t have to record coronavirus cases among their workers – Raw Story

by health and nutrition advice journalist
President Donald Trump’s Labor Department has quietly issued guidance informing most employers in the United States that they will not be required to record and report coronavirus cases among their workers because doing so would supposedly constitute an excessive burden on companies. The new rules, released Friday by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), were met with alarm by public health experts and former Labor Department officials who said the new rules are an absurd attack on transparency that could further endanger frontline workers. Because COVID-19 is officially classified as a recordable illness, employers would typically be required to […]
