This is sad and adds more to the unknown aspect of this virus...

 

 

But fortunately you have Donald the idiot with his latest findings:

 

On Saturday night, President Donald Trump made the dangerously inaccurate claim that 99% of coronavirus cases are "totally harmless."

 

Apart from the about 4 % who died so far.

Bubi,

As usual you hide much of the story..."representing the tenth week of a declining percentage of deaths "

Of course you are in denial of the issues in Germany...let's see....what's that German word that I can use to describe you...🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Good news gentlemen, against all leftist communist biased fake press lies here comes the truth and the man is right :

 

"Of course the US remains the world leader in the pandemic," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted on Wednesday.

 

Anything wrong withthat statement ?

........................

 

Always when I thought it cannot become worse there comes a member of the Trump group of disturbed dicksuckers out of the bush and finds something to tell the world.

World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said there would be no return to the "old normal" for the foreseeable future, especially if preventive measures were neglected.

"Let me be blunt, too many countries are headed in the wrong direction, the virus remains public enemy number one," he told a virtual briefing from WHO headquarters in Geneva.

"If basics are not followed, the only way this pandemic is going to go, it is going to get worse and worse and worse. But it does not have to be this way."

Reuters' global tally, which is based on government reports, shows the disease accelerating fastest in Latin America.

The Americas account for more than half the world's infections and half the deaths.

Parts of the world, especially the United States with more than 3.3 million confirmed cases, are still seeing huge increases in a first wave of Covid-19 infections, while others "flatten the curve" and ease lockdowns.

Some places such as Melbourne, and Leicester in England, are implementing a second round of shutdowns. Chinese-ruled Hong Kong, albeit with a low 1522 cases, is to tighten social distancing measures again amid growing worries about a third wave.

The United States reported a daily global record of 69,070 new infections on 10 July. In Brazil, 1.86 million people have tested positive, including President Jair Bolsonaro, and more than 72,000 people have died.

Helen Clark to co-chair WHO panel to review handling of Covid-19 pandemic

 

( Auntie Helen's on the case, you're in trouble now... :)  )

 

The World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Thursday it was setting up an independent panel to review its handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and the response by governments worldwide.

The announcement follows strong criticism by US President Donald Trump's administration, which accused the WHO of being "China-centric", and US formal notification on Tuesday that it was withdrawing from the UN agency in a year's time.

Former New Zealand prime minister Helen Clark and former Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf have agreed to head the panel, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

"The magnitude of this pandemic, which has touched virtually everyone in the world, clearly deserves a commensurate evaluation, an honest evaluation," Tedros told a virtual meeting with representatives of WHO's 194 member states.

The co-chairs would select the other panel members, he said.

The panel will then provide an interim report to an annual meeting of health ministers in November and present a "substantive report" next May.

"This is not a standard report that ticks a box and is then put on a shelf to gather dust. This is something we take seriously," Tedros said.

In May, WHO's member states adopted unanimously a resolution proposed by the European Union calling for an evaluation of the global response to the pandemic.

Addressing Thursday's meeting, Clark said the assignment would be "exceptionally challenging".

Johnson Sirleaf, whose country was ravaged by West Africa's Ebola outbreak, the world's worst, in 2014-2016, said she looked forward "to doing all we can to respond" to the pandemic's challenges.

More than 12 million people are reported to have been infected by the novel coronavirus worldwide and 548,429 have died, according to a Reuters tally.

Global health expert and former WHO head of communications Ilona Kickbusch told Reuters on Wednesday that any review had to be credible.

"It has to be seen as a group of people that one can trust, that can start the process, and will probably involve others," she said.

Gentlemen,

I just found this jewel of an Interview and stole it from the CNN Website. May the Lord forgive me but it is too good. It seems Obama and Biden made the Virus a problem. Read and enjoy.

Reporter: President Trump, you've said many times that the number of coronavirus cases is going up because testing is increasing.
Trump: That's right.
Reporter: Do you acknowledge that it's going up for other reasons too; for example, that it's actually spreading? And what are you going to do to stop the spread?
Trump: Well, you know that we have one of the lowest mortality rates anywhere. If you know, [former Vice President Joe] Biden and [former President Barack] Obama stopped their testing; they just stopped it. You probably know that. I'm sure you don't want to report it. But they stopped testing. Right in the middle, they just went, "No more testing," and on a much lesser problem than the problem that we have, obviously with respect to -- this is the worst thing that's happened since probably 1917. This is a very bad -- all over the world. It's 188 countries right now.
But, no, we are -- we test more than anybody, by far. And when you test, you create cases. So we've created cases. I can tell you some countries, they test when somebody walks into a hospital sick or walks into maybe a doctor's office, but usually a hospital. That's the testing they do, so they don't have cases, whereas we do -- we have all of these cases. So, you know, it's a double-edged sword.
 
One giant nonsense after the other, but really funny. Only problem being this is the President of the US and he means it.

Yes, brilliant, that should be memorialised, on a giant big slab of marble, with all the names of the dead, in the middle of the Whitehouse lawn. Next to a 4'2" statue of Trump grinning.
