According to Fortune, the government announced Wednesday that, starting Nov. 20, the state would prohibit bars and restaurants nationwide from selling alcohol after 10 p.m. and that all businesses licensed to serve alcohol must close by 10:30 p.m.
A new study just published in the New England Journal of Medicine strongly suggests that this method of screening is virtually ineffective in far too many cases. They tracked the testing of almost 2,000 Marine Corps recruits who were entering basic training. All were given temperature checks and grilled about whether or not they may have come in contact with any infected individuals. All but a handful of the recruits who went on to test positive after a nasal swab were unaware of having been exposed and had normal body temperatures. In other words, nearly all of them were asymptomatic carriers who appeared otherwise quite healthy and the screening methods being used only identified a small percentage of them. (CBS New York)

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended holding a large dinner for incoming members as Democrat leaders across the country urge Americans to cancel their traditional Thanksgiving plans to combat the Chinese coronavirus.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom attended a party last week that violated his own government’s guidelines limiting the number of people who can attend a social gathering during the coronavirus pandemic, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Friday.
Friday on “MSNBC Live,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) addressed the criticism she has received since ordering a citywide lockdown a week after holding a large celebration over the declaration that former Vice President Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. The shutdown, which asks the public to cancel their “traditional” Thanksgiving plans, comes after a recent spike in coronavirus cases.
The office of South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) said Friday that it would not enforce a federal lockdown or mask mandate under a President Joe Biden after one of the former vice president’s advisers floated the measure
— NOBODY RUNS A NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESS!
–STOP COMPLYING AMERICA!
Amid a spike in coronavirus cases in the state, Democrat New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lynn Lujan Grisham has issued a stay-at-home order and demanded nonessential businesses close for 14 days.
Nor should it be used for the basis of detaining anyone.
“[E]ach of our countries have that independent spirit, where we don’t want to be told what to do,” he said. “Well, I understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.”
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) on Thursday signaled that his state would not comply with a mandatory six-week national quarantine if former Vice President Joe Biden wins the presidential election.
“We’re not going to participate in a nation-wide lockdown,” Reeves stated during a coronavirus update in reference to a Biden adviser’s proclaimed that a national lockdown could help combat the virus.
Reeves lampooned the idea of a lockdown as “totally and completely beyond reasonableness” and warned it would cause economic damage.
Yet Texas STILL REFUSES to tell anyone who died WITH and who died FROM chinavirus!
Sen. Rand Paul seized on a New York Times report showing many school-aged children already have antibodies from infection with other coronaviruses associated with common colds that could block the new SARS-CoV-2 strain causing the pandemic.
AMERICANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW IF SOMEONE IS IN THE HOSPITAL WITH OR BECAUSE OF CHINAVIRUS GOTDAMIT!
News reports this week have declared a sky-high record of COVID-19 hospitalizations throughout the United States. But these accounts have ignored a critical signifier of that public health metric, failing to distinguish the number of patients hospitalized directly because of COVID from those who merely test positive for the disease while in the hospital for other treatment.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Thursday issued a stay-at-home order and called on residents to cancel their “traditional” Thanksgiving plans as part of an effort to combat the spread of coronavirus.
As I have long said, @Pfizer and the others would only announce a Vaccine after the Election, because they didn’t have the courage to do it before. Likewise, the @US_FDA should have announced it earlier, not for political purposes, but for saving lives!

Former Vice President Joe Biden was informed of Pfizer’s successful coronavirus vaccine news before the nation’s incumbent chief health care administrator, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar.
Joe Biden’s Covid advisor Dr. Michael Osterholm called for an unconstitutional 4-6 week nationwide lockdown “like they did in New Zealand and Australia.”
On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Biden COVID-19 Advisory Board member Dr. Celine Gounder stated that “the sooner we take responsibility for our own actions, we mask up, we socially distance, we ventilate, we go in for testing, we cooperate with contact tracing,” the quicker “we can return to a semi-normal life.”
Gounder said, “I’m really frightened by the spike that we’re seeing in cases right now, and we know very well that hospitalizations and deaths will follow. The faster we as a country — you know, we as citizens can take this into our own hands and do what we know the science says will work. And the sooner we take responsibility for our own actions, we mask up, we socially distance, we ventilate, we go in for testing, we cooperate with contact tracing, the sooner that we all do all of those things, the sooner we can curve the transmission, the sooner we can return to a semi-normal life.”
Ticketmaster, the nation’s largest online ticket-selling service, is preparing a plan that would ask ticket-buyers to verify and reveal that they have been vaccinated for the coronavirus before they’re allowed to attend events.

The state will also crack down on people congregating inside ahead of the holiday season, banning gatherings of more than 10 people in a private residence, he said.
Dr. Zeke Emanuel, one of several members of a coronavirus task force assembled by Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, has advocated for a plan that would give a coronavirus vaccine developed in the United States to other nations before all Americans have a chance to be vaccinated.
Or, Do this
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends Americans host Thanksgiving Dinner virtually or outdoors during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Celebrating virtually or with members of your own household (who are consistently taking measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19) poses the lowest risk for spread,” the CDC announced in a new list of recommendations for celebrating Thanksgiving in 2020.
The guidance suggests Americans schedule a time to share a meal together virtually over a computer, rather than invite people to their homes.
“Have people share recipes and show their turkey, dressing, or other dishes they prepared,” the list recommends.
The guidance also encourages Americans to just stay at home, watch sports and movies, or “find a fun game to play.” Another option is to leave a meal on the front porch of a neighbor or a loved one, rather than meet them for the holiday.
If Americans do risk hosting an in-person meal with people outside of their household, the CDC recommends it be held outdoors or inside with the windows open.
One illustration features three people celebrating Thanksgiving by standing six feet apart outside and wearing masks in front of a fire pit.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) announced a statewide mask mandate on Tuesday for certain indoor and outdoor activities and gatherings as cases of the Chinese coronavirus spike in the Hawkeye State.
Astudy showing that more than a thousand counties in the US saw COVID-19 hospitalizations decrease after passing mask mandates has been withdrawn.
The study, published on October 23 on the medical site medRxiv, had alleged that hospitalizations for COVID-19 decreased in 1,083 US counties after lawmakers passed mask mandates.

Coronavirus patients can break quarantine Tuesday to vote in person, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed.
“Voters have the right to vote, regardless of whether they are sick or in quarantine,” the CDC stressed in safe-voting guidance posted Sunday.
After months of uncertain speculation, researchers have reported their strongest evidence yet that patients recovered from the coronavirus have a stronger, faster immune response if they’re exposed a second time.
The most recent update to the World Health Organization’s (W.H.O.) guidelines for dealing with the Wuhan coronavirus, posted on November 1, includes a recommendation to use fabric face masks only when “physical distancing of at least 1 meter is not possible,” and for only high-risk groups to use medical-grade masks.

FEAR OF DYING IS THEIR MANTRA! OMG!
The latest numbers from the CDC reveal hospitals have been counting patients who died from serious preexisting conditions as COVID-19 deaths. One America’s Pearson Sharp has more, as the CDC counts over 51-thousand patients who actually died from heart attacks, as opposed to the coronavirus.

Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo.

A requirement that Texans wear face masks when casting ballots during the pandemic lasted less than a day after a federal appeals court halted an order that would have compelled voters to don the coverings.
The State University of New York (SUNY) system announced this week that students will only be permitted to leave for Thanksgiving break if they test negative for coronavirus. The policy will impact many of the 140,000 students that are enrolled at the system’s 64 colleges and universities.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, told an audience in Melbourne, Australia, on Wednesday that the United States may begin to get back to normal in 2022 due to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.
More research on cloth masks is needed to inform their use as an alternative to surgical masks/respirators in the event of shortage or high-demand situations. To our knowledge, only 1 randomized controlled trial has been conducted to examine the efficacy of cloth masks in healthcare settings, and the results do not favor use of cloth masks.
More randomized controlled trials should be conducted in community settings to test the efficacy of cloth masks against respiratory infections.
Now a new, peer-reviewed study in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents may add fuel to a fire that seemed to be burning out. The study finds that outpatients with the coronavirus who were treated with hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and the antibiotic azithromycin were less likely to be hospitalized. Fewer than 3% of outpatients who took the drug regimen ended up in the hospital versus 15% who did not take it.
New COVID-19 cases diagnosed per capita across the European Union (EU) are surging in October, as nations brace for an oncoming third wave of the global outbreak. By Thursday, the number of new infections confirmed per capita in the EU had surpassed those reported in the United States, once the considered the epicenter of the pandemic.

any or most of the 220,000 deaths in the United States to date could have been prevented by widespread HCQ use that the FDA blocked. It is the FDA that is responsible for these deaths, not the president. It is sheer corrupt hypocrisy, and completely shameful, for past FDA commissioners and for a New England Journal of Medicine editor with ties to the FDA to accuse the president of what the FDA itself has done.
WASHINGTON (AP) — FDA approves remdesivir, the first drug for treating COVID-19.
This means, it completely eviscerates the masking horse hockey fake science.

President Donald Trump defended his criticism of Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday, accusing the doctor of being a “Democrat” and a friend of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his brother CNN host ‘Fredo’ Chris Cuomo.
The CDC shared the update on Monday, advising people traveling via air, sea and land, as well as officials and crew members operating the transportation, to wear face masks to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

No country has been harder hit by Covid than my native Peru. Officially, the virus has claimed 33,600 lives from a total population of 32 million – the worst fatality rate in the world.
(Reuters) – Global coronavirus cases rose by more than 400,000 for the first time late on Friday, a record one-day increase as much of Europe enacts new restrictions to curb the outbreak.
A federal judge ruled that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus-related restrictions are allowable, despite acknowledgement that continued limitations will make the economic recovery more difficult.
Brooklyn U.S. District Judge Brian M. Cogan said safety restrictions and guidelines may even “turn New York City into a very different, even desolate, place compared to how it was before the pandemic,” but he declined to grant a preliminary injunction against rules that prohibit restaurants from serving food after midnight. Indoor dining is also restricted to 25% capacity as of Sept. 30.
White House COVID-19 adviser Dr. Scott Atlas is criticizing what he said was an ongoing “obsession” with masks, claiming that universal masking mandates “don’t work” at suppressing the spread of SARS-Cov-2.
Europe this week set a record for new COVID infections, overtaking the United States in cases per capita. New cases in Europe surpassed the US last month, and cases within the EU were higher than US cases by last week.

Sen. Kamala Harris has canceled two election events in North Carolina after multiple campaign staff members have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Atilis Gym owner Ian Smith on Tuesday said he received a letter of seizure from the county sheriff’s office demanding that Smith and gym co-owner Frank Trumbetti turn over their assets and pay nearly $260,000 in fines for opening their business and not requiring masks in violation of coronavirus guidelines.
The statement added, “CDC guidance on masks has clearly stated that wearing a mask is intended to protect other people in case the mask wearer is infected. At no time has CDC guidance suggested that masks were intended to protect the wearers.”
Despite the mainstream media predicting that this would lead to massive fatalities, Sweden has recorded under 6,000 coronavirus deaths and now has the lowest death rate in Europe.

The Michigan Supreme Court handed Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) another legal defeat on Monday when a majority ruled her coronavirus orders are no longer in effect.
On October 2, the Court ruled that the 1945 law Whitmer has been using to justify a “state of emergency” and her lockdown orders was unconstitutional, effectively negating any executive orders related to it.
…then promptly uses another obscure, unknown ‘law’ and does it again anyway.
