Gov. Andrew Cuomo: Quarantining Everyone ‘Probably Not the Best Public Health Strategy’

by Charlie Spiering New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that quarantining everyone together in New York City is probably not the best pubic health strategy in the fight against the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. “What we did was we closed everything down. That was our public health strategy. Just close everything,” Cuomo recalled. He admitted during his daily press conference that he might have done things differently. “If you rethought that, or had time to analyze that public health strategy, I don’t know that you would say, ‘quarantine everyone,’” he said. “I don’t even know that was...

Harvard Researchers: One Long Lockdown Is Not The Right Approach

By  James Barrett A new pre-print study by a team of Harvard researchers concludes that the idea of a single prolonged lockdown — which many are calling for in the U.S. — is not the most effective or sustainable way to curb the coronavirus epidemic. A more viable, long-term approach is to carry out a series of shorter “intermittent” lockdowns triggered by certain medical care capacity thresholds. A team of researchers from Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health posted the study, titled “Social distancing strategies for curbing the COVID-19 epidemic,” Tuesday on the medRxive pre-print server. The study, as underscored by ZDNet’s...

Get Paid $1,200 to Watch the 12 Best Prepper Movies as You Self-Quarantine to Avoid COVID-19

Maybe you’ve got the “Wuhan Coronavirus.” Maybe you’re just afraid of getting it. Either way, staying at home and self-quarantining doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time – or make money. Something we believe about gun-owning Americans: They tend to have a lot more imagination than the average bear. I mean, why else are you prepping? Because you can visualize a future where it might be necessary to have enough food, water, weapons, and ammo (we’ve seen a huge increase in the sales of 40 cal, 223, 7.62x39mm and even 12 gauge shotgun shells since the outbreak) to...

Epidemiologist Behind Highly-Cited Coronavirus Model Admits He Was Wrong, Drastically Revises Model

By  Amanda Prestigiacomo Epidemiologist Neil Ferguson, who created the highly-cited Imperial College London coronavirus model, which has been cited by organizations like The New York Times and has been instrumental in governmental policy decision-making, offered a massive revision to his model on Wednesday. Ferguson’s model projected 2.2 million dead people in the United States and 500,000 in the U.K. from COVID-19 if no action were taken to slow the virus and blunt its curve. However, after just one day of ordered lockdowns in the U.K., Ferguson has changed his tune, revealing that far more people likely have the virus...

Stanford Physicians Suggest COVID-19 Could Have Lower Mortality Rate Than Flu

by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. Two professors of medicine at Stanford University have proposed that current assumptions about the mortality rate of the Chinese coronavirus are deeply flawed due to miscalculations of the infected population. Writing in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) Tuesday, Eran Bendavid, an infectious diseases physician, and Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine, assert that “projections of the death toll could plausibly be orders of magnitude too high” because they are based on gross underestimations of the actual infection rate of the coronavirus. “The true fatality rate is the portion of those infected who die, not...

Wife Can’t Recall Where She Put Her Car Keys But Remembers Dumb Thing You Said 12 Years Ago

According to sources, your wife can’t recall where she put her car keys but still remembers the dumb thing you said to her over 12 years ago. “Ugh — where are those keys?” she asked of the car keys she set down on the counter not five minutes before. “Did somebody move them?

Remember when you were wrong about the thing that time?” She then proceeded to quote the exact phrase, what...

Glenn Beck calls for older Americans to go back to work: ‘I would rather die than kill the country’

by Tom Tillison A complete collapse of the U.S. economy will bring on a level of poverty unknown among today’s entitled generation, and the subsequent consequences this despair would ensure could top the death toll from the Chinese virus COVID-19. That’s a commonly held view by many who are beginning to question whether the prescribed cure to contain the spread of coronavirus may be worse than the disease itself — there have reportedly been just over 800 deaths in the U.S. Conservative commentator Glenn Beck is among those who have concerns about the effects the restriction put in place...
