“UN: New polio outbreak in Niger after vaccination suspended.  The World Health Organization says Niger has been struck by a new outbreak of polio, following the suspension of immunization activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.N. health agency reported that two children were infected by the highly infectious, water-borne disease and that one was paralyzed.”

Medical details on nearly 17,000 coronavirus patients in England, Wales and Scotland have been analyzed.  It shows that:
49% survived and were discharged
33% have died
17% were still being treated
“”Some people persist in believing that Covid-19 is no worse than a bad dose of flu – they are gravely mistaken,” said Calum Semple, the chief investigator on the trial, and a professor in child health and outbreak medicine at the University of Liverpool.  The crude case fatality rate for people who are admitted to hospital with severe Covid-19 is 35% to 40%, which is similar to that for people admitted to hospital with Ebola.  “People need to hear this and get it into their heads… this is an incredibly dangerous disease.””

“Poison center: 2 Georgia men drink disinfectants in attempts to stop coronavirus.  “A man was hospitalized after he drank a full pint of disinfectant after Donald Trump suggested it as a possible treatment for Covid-19.” The director of the Georgia Poison Center, Gaylord Lopez, said that “the man was rushed to a medical center on Saturday after he admitted he ingested 16 ounces of bleach ‘to prevent Covid.’” Lopez added that the man, who has not been identified, has a history of psychiatric issues.”

Trump keep railing about China and the WHO attempting to shift blame for C-19 onto China and the WHO and away from his own lack of response in January and February after it came out he was repeatedly briefed on C-19 throughout January and February.  Trumps said the Federal Government has done “a spectacular job.”

Remdesivir shows great promise if used early in the infection cycle.  The antiviral drug prevents the virus from reproducing in the lung tissue.  It is much less effective if the virus has gotten into the immune response system.  I suspect we will modify this drug, tweak it over the summer and see a new drug based on this one.

Will we get our shit together? Work as a team whilst fighting the virus?
OR
Will we continue to politicize every aspect for personal political gain?

Like Franklin’s Flag says, ‘Unite or Die”, E Pluribis Unam or be a victim of the virus and its social upheaval. Are we still capable of that, or has the divide and conquer tactic of Putin won out? Employed by Trump for political gain it split us in to fifty seperate peices fighting each other for PPE rather than uniting us all as one to fight a virus; Putins desire.

Now Trump seeks to divide us further because that is how he won, by dividing America and turning one part against the other. He seems not to see the virus as real, but as some invisible political enemy he can blame on others, like China or the WHO, when it is a fire and he holds the hose as president, but tell the states to put out the fire. Divide each state from the whole, into red states and blue states, insult the blue states and praise the red states; but Trump still seems to not understand that the virus is not political, its evolution.

Whilst I suffered the aches and pains of my reality in isolation; 39 more of my fellow Mainers were diagnosed and another lost their fight with C-19.
