    I didn't notice but there were over 200,000 new cases yesterday.

    I think that's a record, too.

    US reports new daily record as total cases pass 3 million

    The US reported a new record of more than 60,000 daily confirmed cases of coronavirus on Tuesday (local time), according to Johns Hopkins University.
    The previous highest tally was 55,220, which the US recorded on July 2.

    Figures from the University also saw the number of confirmed cases in the nation pass the 3 million mark but US health officials say the real number of infections is probably 10 times higher, or close to 10 per cent of the population.

    Vice President Mike Pence confirmed the grim milestone at a press conference on Wednesday (local time).
    However, he defended President Donald Trump's handling of the crisis

    "While we mourn with those who mourn, because of what the American people have done, because of the extraordinary work of our healthcare workers around the country, we are encouraged that the average fatality rate continues to be low and steady," Mr Pence said.

    The numbers have been surging in recent weeks amid a rapid expansion in testing, but experts say the rise cannot be explained as just the result of more testing.

    So that drinking bleach thing.....

    BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - Multiple agencies were called to the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing in Bradenton, Fla. in connection with search warrants and a federal order involving a concoction that the church has been selling as an alleged treatment for the novel coronavirus.

    Back in April, the FDA issued an injunction against the church for distributing a “Miracle Mineral Solution” that officials say was intended to treat COVID-19. The solution contains chlorine dioxide content equivalent to industrial bleach. Four individuals were named in the injunction, Mark Grenon, Joseph Grenon, Jordan Grenon and Jonathan Grenon.

    According to Chief Brian Gorski of the South Manatee Fire Department, Hazmat crews were called to assist with warrants alongside local law enforcement and federal agencies. The warrants were served at the church location at 2014 Garden Parkway.

    Chief Gorski said that Hazmat was there to help with the identification of chemicals found on site.

    The crews found:

    50 gallons muriatic acid


    22 gallons of the finished “Miracle Mineral Solution”

    8,300 pounds sodium chlorite

    Court documents obtained by ABC7 show that a federal judge ordered that all websites selling the goods be immediately removed from the internet and that all supplies involved in the creation of the “Miracle Mineral Solution” be confiscated and destroyed. The order also prohibited the creation of future websites to market the product.

    The church must also reach out to every one who has purchased the solution to notify them that the product was unlawfully distributed.

    The order of permanent injunction reads in part, " (The court) having considered such arguments and supporting evidence filed by Defendants, and it appearing that Defendants are violating the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.... unless restrained by order of this Court, will continue to violate the Act.”

    The New York Times Katherine J. Wu July 9, 2020
    Study of 17 Million Identifies Crucial Risk Factors for Coronavirus Deaths
    Katherine J. Wu 4 hrs ago

    An analysis of more than 17 million people in England — the largest study of its kind, according to its authors — has pinpointed a bevy of factors that can raise a person’s chances of dying from Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

    The COVID-2019 Thread-bb16vh90-img-jpeg
    © Dave Sanders for The New York Times A woman being taken from Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens and placed in an ambulance in April.

    The paper, published Wednesday in
    Nature, echoes reports from other countries that identify older people, men, racial and ethnic minorities, and those with underlying health conditions among the more vulnerable populations.

    The size of the study alone is a strength, and there is a need to continue documenting disparities.”

    The researchers mined a trove of de-identified data that included health records from about 40 percent of England’s population, collected by the United Kingdom’s National Health Service. Of 17,278,392 adults tracked over three months, 10,926 reportedly died of Covid-19 or Covid-19-related complications.

    Dr. Goldacre’s team found that patients older than 80 were at least 20 times more likely to die from Covid-19 than those in their 50s, and hundreds of times more likely to die than those below the age of 40. The scale of this relationship was “jaw-dropping,” Dr. Goldacre said.

    Additionally, men stricken with the virus had a higher likelihood of dying than women of the same age. Medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, severe asthma and compromised immunity were also linked to poor outcomes, in keeping with
    guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States. And the researchers noted that a person’s chances of dying also tended to track with socioeconomic factors like poverty.

    Roughly 11 percent of the patients tracked by the analysis identified as nonwhite. The researchers found that these individuals — particularly Black and South Asian people — were at higher risk of dying from Covid-19 than white patients.

    In the United States, Latino and African-American residents are
    three times as likely to become infected by the coronavirus as white residents, and nearly twice as likely to die.

    But the new paper helps address “a real paucity of data on race,” Dr. Raifman added. “These disparities are not just happening in the United States.”

    Christ almighty it just keeps piling on.


    Doctors may be missing signs of serious and potentially fatal brain disorders triggered by coronavirus, as they emerge in mildly affected or recovering patients, scientists have warned.


    Neurologists are on Wednesday publishing details of more than 40 UK Covid-19 patients whose complications ranged from brain inflammation and delirium to nerve damage and stroke. In some cases, the neurological problem was the patient’s first and main symptom.


    The cases, published in the journal Brain, revealed a rise in a life-threatening condition called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (Adem), as the first wave of infections swept through Britain. At UCL’s Institute of Neurology, Adem cases rose from one a month before the pandemic to two or three per week in April and May. One woman, who was 59, died of the complication.


    A dozen patients had inflammation of the central nervous system, 10 had brain disease with delirium or psychosis, eight had strokes and a further eight had peripheral nerve problems, mostly diagnosed as Guillain-Barré syndrome, an immune reaction that attacks the nerves and causes paralysis. It is fatal in 5% of cases.


    “We’re seeing things in the way Covid-19 affects the brain that we haven’t seen before with other viruses,” said Michael Zandi, a senior author on the study and a consultant at the institute and University College London Hospitals NHS foundation trust.
    “What we’ve seen with some of these Adem patients, and in other patients, is you can have severe neurology, you can be quite sick, but actually have trivial lung disease,” he added.


    “Biologically, Adem has some similarities with multiple sclerosis, but it is more severe and usually happens as a one-off. Some patients are left with long-term disability, others can make a good recovery.”


    The cases add to concerns over the long-term health effects of Covid-19, which have left some patients breathless and fatigued long after they have cleared the virus, and others with numbness, weakness and memory problems.


    One coronavirus patient described in the paper, a 55-year-old woman with no history of psychiatric illness, began to behave oddly the day after she was discharged from hospital.




    A neuroscientist explains: the need for ‘empathetic citizens’ - podcast
    She repeatedly put her coat on and took it off again and began to hallucinate, reporting that she saw monkeys and lions in her house. She was readmitted to hospital and gradually improved on antipsychotic medication.


    Another woman, aged 47, was admitted to hospital with a headache and numbness in her right hand a week after a cough and fever came on. She later became drowsy and unresponsive and required an emergency operation to remove part of her skull to relieve pressure on her swollen brain.


    “We want clinicians around the world to be alert to these complications of coronavirus,” Zandi said. He urged physicians, GPs and healthcare workers with patients with cognitive symptoms, memory problems, fatigue, numbness, or weakness, to discuss the case with neurologists.


    “The message is not to put that all down to the recovery, and the psychological aspects of recovery,” he said. “The brain does appear to be involved in this illness.”


    The full range of brain disorders caused by Covid-19 may not have been picked up yet, because many patients in hospitals are too sick to examine in brain scanners or with other procedures. “What we really need now is better research to look at what’s really going on in the brain,” Zandi said.


    One concern is that the virus could leave a minority of the population with subtle brain damage that only becomes apparent in years to come. This may have happened in the wake of the 1918 flu pandemic, when up to a million people appeared to develop brain disease.


    “It’s a concern if some hidden epidemic could occur after Covid where you’re going to see delayed effects on the brain, because there could be subtle effects on the brain and slowly things happen over the coming years, but it’s far too early for us to judge now,” Zandi said.


    “We hope, obviously, that that’s not going to happen, but when you’ve got such a big pandemic affecting such a vast proportion of the population it’s something we need to be alert to.”


    David Strain, a senior clinical lecturer at the University of Exeter Medical School, said that only a small number of patients appeared to experience serious neurological complications and that more work was needed to understand their prevalence.


    “This is very important as we start to prepare post-Covid-19 rehabilitation programs,” he said. “We’ve already seen that some people with Covid-19 may need a long rehabilitation period, both physical rehabilitation such as exercise, and brain rehabilitation. We need to understand more about the impact of this infection on the brain.”

    The YOU.GOV.UK website for the Dept. of Transport lists the countries from which one might enter the UK from 10 July 2020 without the need to self-quarantine for 14 days.

    Thailand is not one of them.

    Even though it has had only around 58 deaths in total from COVID and 3800 cases of infection with none since over 30 days ago.

    And the reason?

    Fuck knows

    'It's like night and day': Trudeau's and Trump's Covid-19 responses fuel wildly different outcomes
    The US president stokes division as the virus rages, while the prime minister of Canada – where the outbreak appears to be stabilizing – has fostered a shared sense of duty
    'It's like night and day': Trudeau's and Trump's Covid-19 responses fuel wildly different outcomes | Canada | The Guardian


    Donald Trump marked the Fourth of July with an apocalyptic speech at Mount Rushmore in which he stoked partisan grievance and deployed racist dog whistles, ignoring calls for unity as coronavirus cases surge.


    Three days earlier, Justin Trudeau chose a more low-key location to celebrate Canada’s own national holiday. The prime minister and his family were photographed harvesting vegetables at an Ottawa food bank farm.


    Unlike Trump and most of his supporters, they all wore face-masks as they sorted through bundles of broccoli.


    The appearances by the two image-conscious leaders were emblematic of two wildly different leadership styles during the pandemic, which have helped one country slow the virus – and plunged the other into its worst health crisis in recent history.


    As the US blew past 3 million infections on Wednesday, Trudeau expressed cautious optimism that Canada had stabilized the outbreak, and took a rare public jab at the Trump administration’s efforts during the pandemic.


    “We were able to control the virus better than many of our allies, particularly including our neighbour,” Trudeau said.


    Trump has declared that a “tremendous victory” over the virus is imminent, despite a record rise in cases, a boiling culture war over face masks and faltering efforts to re-launch the economy.


    In contrast, new coronavirus cases in Canada have continued to decline this week amid cautious optimism from public health officials that a gradual re-opening of the country is possible.


    “It’s like night and day,” said Dr Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Toronto, of the stark differences between the two countries. “From coast to coast, we have the epidemic in Canada under excellent control. We’ve been able to suppress cases at the community level. Of course we’re still seeing some small outbreaks, but we’ve been able to suppress the vast majority of the infection and rapidly identify small outbreaks.”


    With a population of nearly 38 million people, Canada is recording roughly 300 new infections each day, with a total nearly 28,000 active cases.


    The US has a population nearly nine times larger, but its caseload – 1.6 million – is sixty times higher, and growing.


    “I feel awful for them. They’re our friends and our neighbours. And obviously, the epidemic is getting worse, not better,” said Bogoch. “It’s really upsetting watching this unfold, knowing that most of this was largely preventable.”


    This concern, however, is tempered by fear: more than 80% of Canadians support the idea of keeping the border between the two countries closed until the situation in the United States improves.


    “Canadians have spent the past three months in isolation, away from businesses, friends, families and schools,” said Lori Turnbull, a professor of political science at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.


    “They’ve done all this to make sure that they survive the public health crisis. They don’t want the border to open and have Americans bring it up here.”

    ​Serbs are revolting...

    Serbia considers new lockdown after second night of riots
    Authorities in Serbia are deciding on measures to try to curb the spread of coronavirus, after a second night of clashes between police and people protesting against a second lockdown.


    The country’s crisis team is expected to ban gatherings in the capital, Belgrade, and limit the operations of cafes and nightclubs following a rise in infections that they say threatens the health system.


    It is not clear whether officials will reintroduce a weekend curfew, the initial announcement of which triggered the violent protests in Belgrade and three other cities.


    On Wednesday night 10 police officers were injured during a second night of clashes in Belgrade. Dozens of protesters were injured in clashes there and in other cities.

    Republicans are bad for your health #2,553,917

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday defended the state's refusal to release coronavirus hospitalization data as dozens of hospitals in the state reported they had run out of space in their intensive care units amid a dramatic surge in infections.

    At least 56 Florida hospitals in 25 different counties have hit 100% ICU capacity, according to overall hospital
    data released by the state.

    Another 35 only have 10% or less capacity remaining. In all, the state has just 962 out of a total of 5,023 ICU beds available as infections continue to rise.
    One expert said contact tracing has become impossible, because here are so many infections now in South Florida.

    Mississippi's five largest hospitals had no intensive care unit beds available for patients by midweek because of a surge in coronavirus cases, officials reported Thursday. Four more hospitals had 5% or less of those beds available.

    “I was woken up by a phone call yesterday morning at 4 a.m. because we had so many patients at our hospital, we didn’t know where to put them,” Dr. Alan Jones, assistant vice chancellor for clinical affairs of the University of Mississippi Medical Center, said Thursday.

    Mississippi has one of the fastest-growing rates of new coronavirus cases in the United States. One county, Grenada, saw a 22% increase in reported cases from last week to this week. Simpson County saw an 18% increase.
