7 Ways to Protect Yourself from Coronavirus While Dining Out

A sharp spike in U.S. cases of the coronavirus is making rhetoric about a potential pandemic seem less alarmist and more cautionary. As a result, it's nearly impossible to purchase hand sanitizer or masks at your local drug store. But, you need to continue living your life, which includes going out to eat if you want.

Rep. Jim Banks: Make China Pay for Coronavirus Costs Incurred by USA

Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) is demanding reparations from China for putting the United States through the adverse health effects and financial fallout from coronavirus.

"I've heard from colleagues on both sides of the aisle who are ready to engage in the same fight that I've been fighting now for several months, to hold China accountable for their bad behavior," Banks told Fox News's Tucker Carlson Monday night.

The Coronavirus Hoax. “Governments Love Crises”

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

Cuban Drug Could Save Thousands of Lives in Coronavirus Pandemic

Cuban medicine could treat thousands of coronavirus patients as production of a “flagship” drug known to combat the disease is set to increase significantly, pharmaceutical bosses said at a press conference on Friday.

President of the BioCubaFarma group Eduardo Martinez explained that the socialist island has developed 22 drugs that are set to be used to contain the outbreak.

So far it is known that one of the drugs manufactured by Cuba, Interferon B, has managed to effectively cure more than 1,500 patients from the coronavirus and is one of 30 drugs chosen by the Chinese National Health Commission to combat respiratory disease.

Coronavirus - A Lockdown Is Not Enough

Eight days after we wrote Why We Must Shut Everything Down And Do It Now it finally gets done. European countries have closed their borders and told their people to hunker down. Major car companies like Volkswagen, Peugeot and Fiat have stopped their production as car sales have slumped anyway. Airbus shut down two of its production sites to revamp them for better protection of its workers. In the U.S. the Bay Area, New York, Seattle and other major cities have also basically closed down.

Even Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson has changed his mind. Instead of taking it "on the chin" as he had suggested and letting many people die until the rest achieves 'herd immunity' Britain will now finally try to stop the spreading epidemic.

Maybe two.

Maybe.

Kid Rock's Nashville Bar Refuses to Close Amid Coronavirus Concerns, Calls Mayor's Mandate 'Unconstitutional'

The owner of Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N' Roll Steakhouse in Nashville said he is refusing to follow Mayor John Cooper's plan to shut down all bars in the city's tourist hot-spot Lower Broadway during the coronavirus pandemic. After a video of a packed bar went viral overnight, the Metro Board of Health approved a plan to shut down all bars in Davidson County, including the honky-tonks in downtown Nashville. The Tennessee Department of Health reported 39 cases of coronavirus in the state, with 17 in Davidson County alone.

Total Left-Field Weirdness Caused By Coronavirus

Major pandemics are tragic, but at least they're kind of predictable, right? Lots of places close, mass gatherings are canceled, and so (depressingly) on. But with COVID-19, there's also a lot of weirdness that nobody could have expected.

Stuff like ... in February, all Chinese banks started literally laundering cash notes.

How To Choose A Non-Toxic Hand Sanitizer

Triclosan is a synthetic pesticide that’s often added to detergents and soaps and personal care products like deodorants and toothpastes because it has antibacterial properties, but it is important to note that it does not have the power to kill the viruses that cause colds and flus.... Triclosan has been associated with hormone disruption, cancer, liver damage and the development of super-germs. Avoid anything with triclosan or triclocarban on the label.

Is Washington’s Attack Against Chinese Media a Bad Joke?

If you have monopoly on disseminating information to all corners of the Planet, such cynical approach might actually work.

If only one person is allowed to talk, then what he says could become, inevitably, the truth.

Washington loves to snap at “undemocratic nations”. But the truth is, both the United States and the United Kingdom, in unison, have managed to create a thoroughly and truly undemocratic global system of governance, economic practices and “information” (in fact – disinformation).

What is really behind all this?

Russian, Chinese, Latin American and even Iranian media outlets are becoming extremely influential in the educated circles in the West. It is because many citizens in Europe and the United States do not trust their own media, anymore. They are turning for information to such media outlets as RT, China Daily, CGTN, PressTV, NEO and Telesur.

As Coronvirus Grips the US, Americans Get a Taste of Life Under Sanctions

The crippling shortages, inability to move and the likely overwhelming of medical services will give Americans a taste of what it is like to live under sanctions that it imposes on a number of countries worldwide. U.S. sanctions on Venezuela, declared illegal and a “crime against humanity” by the United Nations, are conservatively estimated to have killed more than 40,000 people between 2017 and 2018 alone. Diabetics, for example, have been unable to get insulin because of the embargo, leading to mass deaths. The Cuban government estimates that the American embargo has cost it over $750 billion. Meanwhile, Iran, wracked by the virus that has caused more than 850 confirmed deaths, has been decimated by Trump’s increased sanctions.

Clusterfuck Nation – Blog March 16, 2020 Things Have Changed

At least in wartime, the bars stay open.

The mega financial bubble-of-bubbles is deflating with frightful velocity precisely because of the efforts since 2008 to artificially inflate it. The Federal Reserve gave it one final blast Sunday night — while everybody else was counting their rolls of toilet paper — and the effect was like blowing hot air into a shredded Zeppelin.

The stresses mounting on the national scene today reflect the extreme fragilities of the way-of-life we constructed since then, and an awful lot of bad choices we made in the process......

The Coronavirus Hoax

Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

The Coronavirus Hobgoblin

The great H.L. Mencken, a classical liberal when such creatures still existed, once wrote, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” I find myself repeating this quote more and more these days.

America, and the rest of the world, is in the throes of a panic that has never been seen before, outside the fanciful scripts of Hollywood. A new “super” virus, the Coronavirus, is being hyped nonstop by our state-controlled media as the new bubonic plague. The fear porn emanating from our television sets is relentless.

BREAKING: EU Rejects Serbian Pleas For Coronavirus Help – Only China Will Help

Moments ago, Serbian President Vucic addressed the West Balkan nation in what can only be characterized as a heart-felt and somber statement which continued for over half an hour. A state of emergency has been announced.

Broad and sweeping measures have been announced, including the closure of most public institutions. All Serbians have been encouraged to remain self quarantined as much as possible. Adults were urged not to visit their elderly parents during this time, as this group is the highest risk for infection.

Moreover, Vucic explained that pleas to the European Union, which has expressed its desire for Serbia to become a member state, said it would not be offering any assistance to Serbia.

Israeli Shin Bet's involvement in coronavirus crisis raises questions

Israel has given its spy agency Shin Bet the green light to use "counter-terrorism" operations against those infected with a new coronavirus, treating the pandemic as a security menace.

Speaking at a news conference in Jerusalem al-Quds on Saturday, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the China-originated virus, also called COVID-19, as an "invisible enemy."

He announced that cyber tech monitoring would be deployed to locate people who have been in contact with those carrying the coronavirus.

“We will very soon begin using technology ... digital means that we have been using in order to fight terrorism,” he said.

“Up until today I avoided using these measures in the civilian population but there is no choice,” Netanyhahu added.

Tory Austerity Cuts Have Left UK More Vulnerable to Deadly Covid-19

Mainstream media outlets and the mealy-mouthed politicians they manipulate like puppets are determined to suspend partisan comments in relation to the readiness of our public services and economic infrastructure to cope with the current coronavirus crisis. We must all pull together they say and park political differences for the good of the nation.

That was the tenor of Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s presentation when he appeared on BBC’s Andrew Marr show today as he mimicked Johnson’s “national challenge” call of a few days earlier. The discredited and declining British nationalist tribune, The Sun, suggested Johnson was “evoking blitz spirit” as he spoke about his government’s plans to conquer coronavirus last week.

Live Updates: Nations Resort to Border Shutdowns Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

In late December, the new coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, was detected in Wuhan, China. The virus quickly spread worldwide infecting over 150,000 people globally over the course of less than three months.

Nations around the world are ramping up border controls and declaring national emergencies amid the coronavirus outbreak that the World Health Organisation declared a pandemic this week.

According to the WHO, 153,517 people are infected with the virus globally as of Sunday, with 10,982 new cases in the last 24 hours. Some 5,735 have succumbed to the disease since December. China, Italy, Iran, South Korea and Spain are currently the most affected countries.

‘Fed is a Bystander’: COVID-19 Economic Woes Bigger Than Central Banks Can Handle

As one country after another shuts down public events and urges citizens to stay home amid the pandemic spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, federal banks have struggled to prop up the buckling world economy. However, one analyst says the central banks aren’t being successful because their available tools won’t address the core of the problem.

On Sunday, the US Federal Reserve, which functions as the country’s central bank, lowered its benchmark interest rate to an effective 0% after Washington declared the COVID-19 pandemic a national emergency and states and cities across the country began shuttering shops, transportation and public arenas.

'As the impact of the coronavirus and multiple government travel reactions sweep through our world, many airlines have probably already been driven into technical bankruptcy, or are at least substantially in breach of debt covenants,' CAPA said in a statement on Monday.

Coronavirus calls US’ ‘world's richest country’ bluff: Will it cling to busted myths or evolve under pressure?

The coronavirus containment measures the US has (belatedly, reluctantly) taken are revealing enormous fissures in its first-world facade, from legions of hungry schoolchildren to their broke parents left to fend for themselves.

The US puts a lot of effort into maintaining its image as the world’s richest country, but while it may have the world’s highest GDP, near-record levels of income inequality mean that the “American dream” is out of reach for much of the population. Aside from an upper-crust of fantastically wealthy families and the professional class that supports them, much of the US population struggles to make ends meet even in the best of times. And clearly, the coronavirus epidemic does not represent the best of times.

Passengers from London to the US 'are NOT being screened for coronavirus symptoms and border agents are not reading medical forms' when landing in deserted airports

Passengers from London to the United States claim they aren't being screened for coronavirus symptoms as photos show a nearly deserted John F. Kennedy International Airport.

One passenger told DailyMail.com that she landed at JFK in Queens, New York on Monday morning and was given a medical form to fill out on the plane as part of the 'screening process'.

'I was just asked to name the cities I had been in in the last 30 days by the border official before he stamped me in,' she said.

According to the passenger, airport authorities 'didn't take the form off me though and didn’t record my temperature or fill out the bottom part of it'. Instead they told her 'to keep it'.

President Donald Trump on Monday released a series of coronavirus guidelines to slow the spread that calls for a lockdown of America, including the closing of restaurants and schools.

'Each and every one of us has a critical role to play in stopping the spread,' the president said in the White House briefing room.

And while his guidelines will be revisited after the initial 15 day proposal, the president warned the virus could affect American life well into the summer.

'People are talking about July, August, something like that,' Trump said. 'They could be right in that period of time where it washes through.'

THE WORST PART ABOUT THE PANDEMIC ISN’T THE VIRUS, IT’S THE MASS PANIC WHICH WILL CAUSE AN ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The worst is yet to come, the official in government keeps saying, and the media keeps repeating it, and the masses keep panicking further. The biggest problem with this coronavirus pandemic is not the virus itself, but the reaction of the general public.

Not that long ago, we mentioned that more people would be bankrupted by the ridiculous amounts of panic than would die from this virus. The truth is, that’s looking to be more true by the day. We aren’t saying you shouldn’t be prepared, however, the sheer amount of fear is doing damage to the economy and it may not recover for years.

What History Teaches Us About The Covid-19 Pandemic

Currently there is much debate over what kind of policy is best for dealing with the coronavirus epidemic. We are dealing with a true pandemic and have been ever since the virus was confirmed to have spread to every continent in early February. This will not be over by the summer but will last in a series of episodes for about eighteen months. The virus has a bad combination of qualities inasmuch as it is highly infectious but has serious effects in a large proportion of cases and a not-insignificant mortality rate while in addition another large part of those infected show no symptoms. What is worth doing is thinking about the likely longer-term results and here history is the best guide.

Elon Musk To His Workers: "You're More Likely To Die In A Car Crash Than From Coronavirus"

Elon Musk is telling his workers that they have a higher risk of dying in a car crash than from coronavirus, in what has become the latest in a string of actions Musk appears to be taking to try and downplay the pandemic crisis that the globe now faces.

In a company-wide e-mail on Friday, Musk said that the evidence surrounding the virus “suggests that this is *not* within the top 100 health risks in the United States,” according to BuzzFeed. Musk said in the e-mail that employees who feel ill should stay home.

His e-mail continued: “Isn’t C19 growing so fast that it will soon become a top 100 health risk for people who are otherwise healthy and young to middle-aged? The trends do not support this conclusion. Among other things, the media is using the ‘presumed’ positive number of C19 cases, not the *confirmed* number.”

New York only has 3,000 ICU beds and Gov. Cuomo says coronavirus patients may end up "on gurneys in hallways"

Over the past few weeks, as large gatherings across the country have been cancelled and people have been urged to practice social distancing, there has been much talk of "flattening the curve" of the coronavirus. It's a reference to the aggressive preemptive actions many states are taking to help slow the spread of COVID-19, in the hope that a sudden spike in severe cases will not overwhelm the American health care system — a spike that would be made worse by a corresponding surge in sick doctors and shortages of medical equipment.

"I don't think of a curve. I think of a wave," New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a press conference Monday. "And the wave is going to break on the hospital system."

Parents and students nationwide contend with school closures: "Overwhelming anxiety"

Thirty-three states are closing public schools to stop the spread of the coronavirus, affecting at least 32.5 million K-12 students.

New York City's school system, the largest in the nation, is closed starting Monday.

The sudden closures are forcing parents and guardians to find child care at a moment's notice.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday that the city's public schools will be closed until at least April 20 — possibly even longer. "It's going to be very difficult for a lot of our families," he said.

The closures come as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says closing for at least eight weeks may help mitigate the virus' spread.

Economic Effect of Coronavirus Could Be Revolutionary

Coronavirus and globalism will teach us vital lessons. The question is whether we can learn vital lessons that do not serve the ruling interest groups and ideologies.

Coronavirus will teach us that a country without free national health care is severely handicapped. Millions of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They cannot afford health care premiums, deductions, and copays. Millions have no insurance. This means millions of people infected with coronavirus who cannot get medical help. The morbidity from this is intolerable in any society.

Whoops! A holiday missed! Remembering Liberty and Patrick!

Ireland and her people have always and nearly constantly battled against others to win and keep their liberty. For all of recorded history, Irish patriots have been challenged by internal tyrants and bandits (often with little to tell the two apart). The Emerald Isle has been a constant attraction to invaders, including Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Danes and other Vikings, the Norman French and last (and longest), their English and Scots neighbors. Other, more subtle invasions have been a problem as well. In modern times, the submission of Ireland to the European Union is such a problem. But there are more forms of tyranny. These include organized religion: churches. Specifically the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland (part of the Church of England – Anglican).

Detect, Deter and Annihilate: How the Police State Will Deal with a Coronavirus Outbreak

By John W. Whitehead
March 16, 2020

“Fear is a primitive impulse, brainless as hunger, and because the aim of horror fiction is the production of the deepest kinds of fears, the genre tends to reinforce some remarkably uncivilized ideas about self-protection. In the current crop of zombie stories, the prevailing value for the beleaguered survivors is a sort of siege mentality, a vigilance so constant and unremitting that it’s indistinguishable from the purest paranoia.”— Terrence Rafferty, New York Times

Why Is Italy a Target?

In "The Conspirators' Hierarchy: the Committee of 300", (1992) John Coleman said the first two targets of the Illuminati are US and Italy: the first because US is the most powerful and richest nation in the World; the second for its long Catholic tradition and its central place in western civilization.

Until the 80's, Italy was the fourth economy in the World. Only US, Japan and Germany were more powerful. Then, Italy had 9 hospital beds per 100.000 people. The North of the country had really the best health care system in the World when I was a child. If this coronavirus epidemic had happened in the 80's, Italy could have the possibility to manage the situation without draconian measures. But now, after the budget limitations imposed by European Union, even if Italy is a net contributor for it (we give Europe Union more money than we receive), we were forced to cut the budget for our national health care system which now is close to collapse.

Ron Paul on the Slippery Slope of Mandated Vaccination

No matter your stance on vaccination, every American should be stopping to consider the ramifications of any forced medical procedure or medication in this nation. The fact the your government can hold your job, schooling or hard earned benefits hostage of lack of a commercial product with risk, questionable efficacy and zero corporate liability which combats a tiny percentage of infectious disease that pales when compared to the litany of medical ills that ravage our population is contrary to our nation's very DNA.

Economic Effect of Coronavirus Could Be Revolutionary

Paul Craig Roberts

Coronavirus and globalism will teach us vital lessons. The question is whether we can learn vital lessons that do not serve the ruling interest groups and ideologies.

Coronavirus will teach us that a country without free national health care is severely handicapped. Millions of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They cannot afford health care premiums, deductions, and copays. Millions have no insurance. This means millions of people infected with coronavirus who cannot get medical help. The morbidity from this is intolerable in any society.

Shutdowns associated with efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus will deny income to millions of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck. What do they do for food, shelter, transportation? You don’t have to think very long along these lines to see a very frightening scenario.

How Many People Have Coronavirus?

The majority of the people stripping items off store shelves know nothing about the virus, and if they did, they wouldn’t care. They’re acting like frothing marauders because other people are, too. “I’ve got to get paper towels and pet food because everyone else is hoarding them.”

Now there’s REAL contagion.Quarantines, lockdowns, the advice to maintain “social distancing,” and wall-to-wall propaganda about “transmission of the virus” have resulted in mass cancelation of public events and the shuttering of large venues. Untold numbers of small businesses are in serious trouble.

This is a direct attack on the economy. It is also a ripping of the right to “peaceably assemble,” one of the natural freedoms embodied in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. As usual, “the threat to public safety and health” is invoked to override freedoms and rights.

Coronavirus and the Sun: a Lesson from the 1918 Influenza Pandemic

Fresh air, sunlight and improvised face masks seemed to work a century ago; and they might help us now.

by Richard Hobday

When new, virulent diseases emerge, such SARS and Covid-19, the race begins to find new vaccines and treatments for those affected. As the current crisis unfolds, governments are enforcing quarantine and isolation, and public gatherings are being discouraged. Health officials took the same approach 100 years ago, when influenza was spreading around the world. The results were mixed. But records from the 1918 pandemic suggest one technique for dealing with influenza — little-known today — was effective. Some hard-won experience from the greatest pandemic in recorded history could help us in the weeks and months ahead.

The flu vaccine might make you even more vulnerable to coronavirus

This is according to a warning issued by Dr. Robert J. Rowen, who wrote that when a person gets a vaccination, their immune system essentially becomes so artificially “deranged” by it that it can’t respond normally to any secondary challenges it may face.

This detail is listed right in the first sentence of a new study’s abstract, which says that “Receiving influenza vaccination may increase the risk of other respiratory viruses, a phenomenon known as vaccine interference.”

In the study, which was published in January in the journal Vaccine, researchers compared the vaccination status of 2,880 individuals with non-flu respiratory viruses to 3,240 people who did not have any flu or virus. When they compared those who had gotten the flu vaccine to those who hadn’t, they discovered that virus interference was associated with coronavirus as well as human metapneumovirus.

DESPICABLE?:?Joe Biden Promotes Trumpian Conspiracy Theory That Joe Biden Has Dementia

During a “virtual town hall” staged to avoid public gatherings amid COVID-19 fears, former vice president Joe Biden advanced a disgusting, ageist, ableist conspiracy theory about the Democratic Party’s presidential frontrunner, Joe Biden.

Throughout the appearance, Biden repeatedly spoke in a befuddled, incoherent way, severely confusing the amount of time between March and November, even beginning to walk off-camera in the middle of a babbling screed. The derisive implication of this cruel performance being, of course, that Joe Biden is not in possession of his mental faculties because he is suffering from some form of dementia.

Utterly reprehensible.

Iranian, Russian and Chinese Officials Claim COVID-19 Is A Biological Weapon

Regarding “peddling conspiracy theories”, Im not discussing suspicions raised by people on Reddit or 8 Chan, officials from world governments are saying it. Should I censor what these nation’s officials are claiming? When do I pick and choose which claim to cover and which to ignore? Just because you might not agree with the theory doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be heard. I’m firmly against censorship and think it’s best to be open minded enough to hear someone out no matter how crazy the theory may sound.

Coronavirus was produced in a laboratory: Former CIA intel officer

If the Chinese believe this whether true or not,we are heading for a war with China.

A former American counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer of the CIA has said that the “Coronavirus did not occur naturally through mutation but rather was produced in a laboratory, possibly as a biological warfare agent.”

Since the novel coronavirus outbreak began in China last December, it has infected more than 90,000 people globally and killed more than 3,000. The majority of cases and deaths remain in mainland China.

The death toll from the coronavirus in Iran, which has one of the highest numbers outside China, stood at 107, Health Ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpur said Thursday.
