Beijing tightens grip over coronavirus research amid US-China row on virus origin – CNN

by health and nutrition advice journalist
And now, Chinese authorities appear to be tightening their grip on the publication of Covid-19 research. A Chinese researcher who spoke on condition of anonymity due to fear of retaliation said the move was a worrying development that would likely obstruct important scientific research. “I think it is a coordinated effort from (the) Chinese government to control (the) narrative, and paint it as if the outbreak did not originate in China,” the researcher told CNN. “And I don’t think they will really tolerate any objective study to investigate the origination of this disease.” CNN has reached out to China’s foreign […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned Tuesday that a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic expected this winter could be deadlier than the current pandemic — even as more states push to reopen their economies and lift their stay-at-home orders. “There’s a possibility that the assault of the virus on our nation next winter will actually be even more difficult than the one we just went through,” CDC Director Robert Redfield told The Washington Post, saying that it would likely coincide with peak flu season. “And when I’ve said this to others, they kind […]

by health and nutrition advice journalist
A 4-year-old British girl suffering from coronavirus-like symptoms grew worse after taking ibuprofen, her family said.

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The head of the emergency department at a Manhattan hospital committed suicide after spending days on the front lines of the coronavirus battle, her family said Monday. “She tried to do her job, and it killed her,” Dr. Philip Breen told the New York Times of his physician daughter, Lorna Breen, who had been medical director of the NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital amid the pandemic. The father said his 49-year-old daughter, who died Sunday, had no history of mental illness.

Coronavirus hype biggest political hoax in history – Washington Times

by health and nutrition advice journalist
ANALYSIS/OPINION: The new coronavirus is real. The response to the coronavirus is hyped. And in time, this hype will be revealed as politically hoaxed. In fact, COVID-19 will go down as one of the political world’s biggest, most shamefully overblown, overhyped, overly and irrationally inflated and outright deceptively flawed responses to a health matter in American history, one that was carried largely on the lips of medical professionals who have no business running a national economy or government. The facts are this: COVID-19 is a real disease that sickens some, proves fatal to others, mostly the elderly — and does […]
