In 1996, Dr. Ho was named Time Magazine's Man of the Year. He was the lead scientist in the effort to make HIV and AIDS a treatable disease. 24 years later, he's still working to save lives. Thank you. 🙌

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science." --Charles Darwin "The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about." --Wayne Dyer "Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." --Martin Luther King, Jr. These quotes perfectly describe the current "stable genius" in the Oval Office.

For trump supporters: "For the record NO ONE is blaming the President for the virus. Let me repeat. Coronavirus is not Trump’s fault. Here’s a detailed list of what we are blaming him for: Trump declined to use the World Health Organization’s test like other nations. Back in January, over a month before the first Co-vid19 case, the Chinese posted a new mysterious virus and within a week, Berlin virologists had produced the first diagnostic test. By the end of February, the WHO had shipped out tests to 60 countries. Oh, but not our government. We declined the test even as a temporary bridge until the CDC could create its own test. The question is why? We don’t know but what to look for is which pharmaceutical company eventually manufactures the test and who owns the stock. Keep tuned. In 2018 Trump fired Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossart, whose job was to coordinate a response to global pandemics. He was not replaced. In 2018 Dr. Luciana Borio, the NSC director for medical and bio-defense preparedness left the job. Trump did not replace Dr. Borio. In 2019 the NSC’s Senior Director for Global Health Security and bio-defense, Tim Ziemer, left the position and Trump did not replace the Rear Admiral. Trump shut down the entire Global Health Security and Bio-defense agency. Yes, he did. Amid the explosive worldwide outbreak of the virus Trump proposed a 19% cut to the budget of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention plus a 10% cut to Public Health Services and a 7% cut to Global Health Services. Those happen to be the organizations that responds to public health threats. In 2018, at Trump’s direction, the CDC stopped funding epidemic prevention activities in 39 out of 49 countries including China. Trump didn’t appoint a doctor to oversee the US response to the pandemic. He appointed Mike Pence. Trump has on multiple occasions sowed doubt about the severity of the virus even using the word hoax at events and rallies. He even did it at an event where the virus was being spread. Trump has put out zero useful information concerning the health risks of the virus. Trump pretended the virus had been contained. Trump left a cruise ship at sea for days, denying them proper hospital care, rather than increase his numbers in America. Repeat. We do not blame Trump for the virus. We blame him for gutting the nation’s preparations to deal with it. We blame him for bungling testing and allowing it to spread uninhibited. We blame him for wasting taxpayer money on applause lines at his rallies (like The Wall). We blame him for putting his own political life over American human life. I hope this clears things up." :Stolen Please feel free to cut copy and paste this so that more people will know the truth!

Over 80% of people will have flu like symptoms or less. But for others they are publishing a paper this week in which getting plasma from someone who has recovered from the virus is showing great promise. For democrats, though, I would recommend you trust in biden, because he will be curing cancer and diabetes as he has stated, so this would be even easier for him, he can cure this in a week.

If the Demonrats/media didnt have double standards they wouldnt have any standards at all, its a scary thing when one party has free reign while the other is micro scrutinized day and night. Obamas administration allowed 1000 people to die from the swine flu before announcing an emergency, 18.000 people died, over 300,000 were hospitalized and MSDNC praised Obama, fake news is real. P.S. Almost 1500 of those deaths were children.

Testing Kavetching The US CDC has published Testing Processes for Health Care Providers. It appears the Process is designed to filter Colds and Flu before a Corona Test is done. Many say this approach is Wrong without specifying what the Right test process should be. We know Corona has Asymptomatic Carriers, therefore, should all 315 million People in the US be tested to discover these People? If the current test Process is Wrong, Critics should say what "Right" is within the context of what is possible. The Capacity to Test 315 million People is not possible now but if we dig in hard we may be able to develop this Capacity in a couple Years after spending perhaps a couple hundred Billion Dollars.

* * * Donald J. Trump is unmistakably Beelzebub incarnate. Who was Beelzebub? Answer: Beelzebub is the Greek form of the name Baal-zebub, a pagan Philistine god worshiped in the ancient Philistine city of Ekron during the Old Testament times. It is a term signifying “the lord of flies” (2 Kings 1:2). Archaeological excavations at ancient Philistine sites have uncovered golden images of flies. After the time of the Philistines, the Jews changed the name to “Beelzeboul,” as used in the Greek New Testament, meaning “lord of dung.” This name referenced the god of the fly that was worshiped to obtain deliverance from the injuries of that insect. Some biblical scholars believe Beelzebub was also known as the “god of filth,” which later became a name of bitter scorn in the mouth of the Pharisees. As a result, Beelzebub was a particularly contemptible deity, and his name was used by the Jews as an epithet for Satan. > Impeach Donald Beelzebub Trumputinixon at: Change .org We MUST do this for our children.

One thing people haven't figure yet is: According to the following link, in the congressional hearing, the CDC director admitted some flu like deaths have been diagnosed to be coronavirus: This means coronavirus existed in US long before it appeared in Wuhan but CDC failed to identify it. It failed because Trump cut the CDC budget. This whole mess should have been avoided if the CDC is able to identify the coronavirus and warned the world at that time.

John Hopkins is working on a treatment that would allow seriously ill patients to get blood transfusions from the blood of recovered (and immune) patients. This treatment reduced deaths in the 1918 pandemic by 50%. It was also successfully used on polio and measles epidemics in the mid 20th Century. Vaccines and antivirals are more effective, but we don't have those for COVID19.

The president** continues to lie during the press conference announcing a national emergency: “It’s going very quickly, which will bring additionally 1.4 million tests onboard next week and 5 million within a month,” Trump said, before adding: “I doubt we’ll need anywhere near that.” Trump also, despite the ramping up in the availability of testing, urged people against getting tested unless they really needed it. And he again suggested that the fast-spreading disease would soon be gone.

There is a global coordinated push to find a cure for the COVID-19 virus, one promising example is an Israeli-made oral vaccine for coronavirus on track, but testing will take months. State-funded Migal Galilee institute has been working for 4 years on a vaccine that could be customized for various viruses, so it had a head start when COVID-19 emerged. An effective Israeli-developed vaccine for coronavirus is on track to be ready for testing within “a few weeks,” Katz clarified that the 90-day time frame in the February 27 statement was until the product is ready for human testing THE TIMES OF ISRAEL By Nathan Jeffay March 11, 2020, 1:57 pm 17 (If everything goes well maybe 5-6 months?
