  1. This was a a group of 31 military who were visiting the shopping mall and venues, not just the one who has tested positive. Total incompetence. "He and the crew reportedly visited a Rayong shopping and community area. They left their hotel on July 9 and travelled to China on an unspecified military mission via U-Tapao Airport. They returned to Thailand the same day. On July 10, the crew of 31 got tested. However, they were allowed to go home on July 11 though their Covid-19 test results weren’t confirmed."
  2. This is not how you do contact tracing. This is called hitting the panic button: Six municipal schools and two nurseries in Thailand’s eastern province of Rayong are to be closed from tomorrow (Tuesday) until further notice, as a precautionary measure, after members of an Egyptian military delegation visited a mall and other venues in the province last week. https://www.thaipbsworld.com/some-rayong-schools-closed-tuesday-over-covid-19-egyptian-soldier/ Its baffling why the authorities do not let the general public know what venues this military group visited.
  3. Flu vaccine, even when just 20% effective, saves tens of thousands of lives a year in the US alone.
  4. Not really, worse case scenario would be the same as flu vaccine, once a year
  5. Its reported that the G strain is more infectious yes, by around 10 times, but I've found no study claiming it to be less lethal?
  6. You can satisfy your curiosity be googling "covid 19 long haulers" dozens of articles, studies and facts.
  7. Maybe he should also have mentioned that he was getting this information from this peer reviewed study. Tracking changes in SARS-CoV-2 Spike: evidence that D614G increases infectivity of the COVID-19 virus https://www.cell.com/cell/fulltext/S0092-8674(20)30820-5
  8. Not disputing the findings from that but one study from a ship does not make it a worldwide statistic. "It’s difficult to extrapolate the results to larger populations" I was quoting figures from WHO. Its not clear yet but to say 80% of people have no symptoms whatsoever is pushing it
  9. Its estimated that 45% of cases are asymptomatic for the entire duration of infection. 35% have mild symptoms, 15% are severe infection, requiring oxygen and 5% are critical infections, requiring ventilation. Mild symptoms can still make you extremely sick with long term health problems.
  10. Agreed, it not a reason to defund the WHO and I would have preferred that the USA stayed within and applied pressure that way instead, however the list of in-competencies by WHO keeps growing but they can be addressed and improved if the right leadership is in place, it is my opinion Tedros absolutely needs to go. https://gop-foreignaffairs.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Interim-Minority-Report-on-the-Origins-of-the-COVID-19-Global-Pandemic-Including-the-Roles-of-the-CCP-and-WHO-6.15.20.pdf
  11. Indeed, China had no choice in confirming the virus 3 days later as the information had already been intercepted via other routes: "During an April 20, 2020 press conference, Dr. Ryan and Director-General Tedros were asked about Taiwan’s email notification. Dr. Ryan, as quoted earlier in this report, reveals that the WHO learned about the outbreak not from PRC authorities, but from a post on a U.S.-based website. When the moderator called on another reporter, Director-General Tedros interjected: Can I? I think Mike answered it very well but it[sic] just wanted to summarise. In its email on 31st December one thing that has to be clear is the first email was not from Taiwan. Many other countries already were asking for clarification. The first report came from Wuhan, from China itself…. So the report first came from China - that's fact number one [emphasis added] - from Wuhan itself.175 While it is technically true that the first reports of the virus originated in Wuhan, WHO headquarters staff initially discovered these reports on a U.S.-based early warning website. Director-General Tedros’ comments seem to suggest that Wuhan or the PRC informed the WHO of the outbreak, which is untrue." A tangled web being promoted by Tedros
  12. Your chart is from 22nd May correct? MIAMI — The rate of daily coronavirus deaths reported by the state of Florida has begun to tick up again for the first time since May, a trend that was apparent even before Thursday’s announcement of a record 120 COVID deaths, following weeks of rising hospitalizations. https://www.heraldmailmedia.com/news/nation/florida-s-coronavirus-death-rate-is-trending-up-again-after-rising-hospitalizations/article_0239e85c-fd0f-5a0a-bb2c-f2777684cc51.html All charts now confirm a rising death trendline

  14. Its a huge change, it proves China did not report this outbreak to WHO, breaking International Law. International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR) provide an overarching legal framework that defines countries’ rights and obligations in handling public health events and emergencies. The IHR are an instrument of international law that is legally-binding on 196 countries, including the 194 WHO Member States
  15. Good point, unless they plan on sending the recipients to get sneezed on with the handful of patients in hospital who are recovering
