The real reason China has had no new cases.

Report: China Stopped Testing for COVID-19. That's Why There Are Zero New Cases.

https://pjmedia.com/trending/report-china-stopped-testing-for-covid-19-thats-why-there-are-zero-new-cases/

The Chinese have tested a lot. In China you cannot get on a bus without your temperature being taken. If you show any fever, Police in PPE take you home and seal you in for two weeks.

They react as if every fever is Covid now, but that is not data any org would want.

Great.  So I'm eating dinner and I feel something break off in my mouth, and half my fucking tooth broke off on the left side.  Probably an old filling from the good old USN.  Hurts like a bitch.

Same here a few months ago... fortunately tooth had been root canaled.

Able to see a Dentist yet?

Whatever? If I'm wasting my time with you, OBF, please let me know.

A wave off and a subject change is what I'd expect from Kal, but I thought you were better than that... that you actually had a degree of openness.

WHO is a science-based organizations. Their words have meaning. "No clear evidence" does not mean the was "no evidence". So there's that...

Chinese authorities in Wuhan Province tried to conceal the outbreak from their own national gov't. And as a result, yes, it got out of hand. But once Bejing was on it, the info flow opened wide. This included teh sharing of the first virus isolates with major Labs around the world... including our CDC.

I'll see your "whatever" and raise you a "you've got to be kidding me?"

"Test of Wuhan" in the title doesn't make sense... and the article makes even less.

FYI chloroquine is one of dozens of drugs FDA labelled for other uses that are going thru clinical, Covid-19 trials. The drug candidates have been identified thru normal protocols and are being tested per normal procedures.

Scientists Identify 69 Drugs to Test Against the Coronavirus

Trump did proclaim chloroquine "FDA aproved for Covid" the other day in a presser... it's not... it's in a trial just like the other drugs.

 

As for game-changing... jury is still out, but one early trial was not promising.

But the above is preliminary. As is another small test in India  that similarly showed no benefit.

Current US testing includes thousands of patients. The WHO is also doing a mega study.

"WHO is a science-based  political corrupt organizations".

All the links were driving home the point the WHO has a huge reputation for being both corrupt and political and not enough as a science agency.

Understandable. Here's one I think you might find of Interest it's not necessarily partisan it's a commentary on the Federalists response to any crisis as opposed to an extremely strong central executive that would make Countrywide decisions. I think you've mentioned that idea before. I think the concept is probably accurate even though I can't imagine how anyone could rule 50 States from the White House.

No dentists open except for emergencies (infections/extreme pain) so I'll have to wait until this blows over (in about 3 months or so).😁

Well... apocalyptic predictions might not be as applicable now... because extreme measures have been taken by a significant portion of the world's governments.

Y'all????? Using the Y-word??? 😄😄😄😄

The word ‘y’all” is racist and should be banned

Southern hate words have no place in our diverse and inclusive society

It’s clear that this word is far too hateful to be used in everyday life. The sheer number of traumatized persons from a variety of marginalized groups is staggering. It’s 2019, and this hatred is unacceptable. The only way forward now is to ban this despicable word and simply brand it the Y-word. Anyone caught uttering this monstrosity should be locked up, heavily fined, or re-educated.

I'll give OBF the benefit of the doubt here. I think he knows what he was doing.

 

I would bet money that Cal does not, as indicated by his reaction to this post

If you see anyone wearing a mask this way.... slap them and tell them not to waste masks.

The top strap  goes high on the back of the head to be sure the mask stays tight to the chin. This is universal for all respirators.

Plus the seal around the sides of the bridge of the nose looks suspect, but I'm not familiar with that model and the foam rubber may fill the gap. Most models have a metal strip you pinch for a tight fit.

make your bet twenty bucks, and send it to OBJ. You're wrong. lol I laughed at it, quickly picked the wrong "attaboy" - meant to pick the laughing one, and hit the mouse too quickly. Tried to fix it, and ran out of "attaboys" again. Here, I'll fix it -
