CDC confirms second US Wuhan coronavirus case A second case of Wuhan coronavirus in the United States has been identified in Chicago, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday in a press briefing. The patient is a Chicago resident in her 60s. She is in isolation at a hospital in Chicago, and is in stable condition. The patient flew from Wuhan to Chicago on January 13. She was not ill while traveling and health authorities do not think she spread the virus during that time. Health authorities say she has had limited close contacts since returning to Chicago; she has not used public transit, attended large gatherings or had extended close contact with anyone outside her home. The first confirmed US case, announced Tuesday, is a man in his 30s in Washington state. The Snohomish County resident is hospitalized at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington, where he is in stable condition. He arrived at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on January 15, before any health screenings began at US airports.
China built a lab to study SARS and Ebola in Wuhan – and US biosafety experts warned in 2017 that a virus could ‘escape’ the facility that’s become key in fighting the outbreak Scientists warned in 2017 that a SARS-like virus could escape a lab set up that year in Wuhan, China, to study some of the most dangerous pathogens in the world. Now, a SARS-like coronavirus has infected more than 800 there, spread to at least 10 other countries and killed 25 in Wuhan and nearby provinces. China installed the first of a planned five to seven biolabs designed for maximum safety in Wuhan in 2017, for the purpose of studying the most high-risk pathogens, including the Ebola and the SARS viruses. Tim Trevan, a Maryland biosafety consultant, told Nature that year, when the lab was on the cusp of opening, that he worried that China’s culture could make the institute unsafe because ‘structures where everyone feels free to speak up and openness of information are important.’
Questions of The Day!
Hello Robert & Super D….I have a friend who had to have an MMR vaccine 3 years ago for work(childcare director in California) after that she developed RA what would be the best approach to detox & heal her of this reaction from the shot? The western doctor gave her steroids & a chemo drug(which she has stopped)…. Thanks for all your knowledge & passion to empower others to Heal themselves!
Hello RSB and Superdon! How are you guys? I have a question about aluminum…I have been using the “Crystal” mineral salt deoderant stick for a couple of years and never realized that the whole thing was made of “alum”. From my understanding, alum is a form of aluminum. Is alum as bad for you as the aluminum I am avoiding in regular deoderants? The crystal needs to be wet in order to activate on the skin. Does this make a difference by changing the size of the molecules? It would really stink (no pun intended) if they are marketing this product as non-toxic when indeed it could be just as bad as the other brands. What do you guys use for deoderant? Thanks for your input!
Have a cousin with breast cancer. Not responding to conventional treatment. I heard you talk about food form protocols. Do you have a clinic, or do you sell these supplements.
Comment of The Day!
Hi Robert Signed up today as a patron so maybe for Super Don I am number 40. Want to circle back to your show last Monday the 20th on my questions and comments for the Vaccine coverage you had done here in Canada. To clarify I am a Grandfather and was questioning for the benefit of my children and Grandchildren. Thank You for the excellent details you provided and I have forwarded this information and your site on to many both here in Canada and some in the US I have been in contact with with Vaccinated children challenges they are dealing with. First class excellent Job both you and Don are doing! Thank You
Study finds many youth living with undiagnosed chronic fatigue syndrome Most youth living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) have not been diagnosed, according to a new prevalence study from researchers at DePaul University and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, published by the journal Child & Youth Care Forum. Leonard A. Jason, a professor of psychology at DePaul University, led the seven-year study to screen more than 10,000 children and teenagers in the Chicago area. The researchers found that less than 5% of youth in the study who tested positive for ME/CFS had been previously diagnosed with the illness. Of the children assessed, African American and Latinx youth were twice as likely to be living with undiagnosed ME/CFS. The study was funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, one of the National Institutes of Health. Jason has been studying ME/CFS for more than 30 years and says the illness can affect all aspects of a child’s life, from physical functioning to attending school and participating in extracurricular activities.
Pharma Founder Gets 66 Months For Bribing Doctors To Overprescribe Deadly Opioids Millions of Americans who lived through the financial crisis probably recall that not a single executive of a major investment bank was jailed in the aftermath, despite running organizations seemingly dedicated to perpetuating a criminal fraud on nearly every counterparty and client. But when Americans look back at the opioid crisis, they’ll remember that at least one executive of a major opioid manufacturer and distributor was sentenced to a fairly weighty sentence – five-and-a-half years (66 months) in federal prison – for an illegal kickback scheme that effectively involved bribing doctors to prescribe potentially lethal doses of fentanyl. That’s right: Packaged under the name brand Subsys, Insys sold a painkiller made from the same ultra-powerful synthetic opioid responsible for tens of thousands of deaths across America. According to the FT, which, in partnership with PBS’s Frontline, is producing a documentary on the opioid crisis, John Kapoor, the founder of Insys, was sentenced to prison time on Thursday after being prosecuted under the RICO act – a law adopted decades ago to help the DoJ prosecute the mafia.
How does the immune system know which microorganisms to attack? Turns out, it’s similar to speed dating Researchers from the University of Freiburg have found evidence to suggest that the immune system could distinguish between self and non-self molecules through interacting with them. This team, led by biologists Wolfgang Schamel and Wilfried Weber, provided data that supported a hypothesis scientists have long held concerning how T cells differentiate between pathogens and the body’s cells. One of the immune system’s primary responsibilities is to protect against harmful pathogens. To do this, it must distinguish the foreign invaders from the body’s cells. In order to act as the body’s security system, it must destroy these pathogens without harming the body’s own cells. T cells are an important component of the immune system. However, via their T cell receptor, they are known to bind not only to foreign pathogens, but also to non-pathogenic molecules, causing unnecessary damage to the body.
Faulty immune system may lead to lung cancer An immune system that’s not functioning normally may lead to lung cancer in patients who don’t smoke, a new study suggests. “A strong immune system helps to keep inflammation under control and chronic inflammation is known to promote cancer,” said co-author Rayjean Hung. “Our research suggests that it’s underlying dysfunction of immune regulation that can lead to lung cancer, as if a shield is down,” she said. Hung is a senior investigator at Sinai Health’s Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Toronto. For the study, Hung’s team looked at the genes of 80,000 people to see if conditions other than those that compromise lung function—such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)—can cause lung cancer. As many as 70% of lung cancer patients also have existing COPD or airflow obstruction.
