China bubonic plague: Inner Mongolia takes precautions after case Authorities in China have stepped up precautions after a city in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region confirmed one case of bubonic plague. According to state reports, the Bayannur patient – a herdsman – is in quarantine and in a stable condition. Officials said they were also investigating a second suspected case, according to China’s Global Times. The bubonic plague was once the world’s most feared disease, but can now be easily treated. The first case was reported as suspected bubonic plague on Saturday at a hospital in Urad Middle Banner, in Bayannur city. It is not yet clear how or why the patient might have become infected. The second suspected case involves a 15-year-old, who had apparently been in contact with a marmot hunted by a dog, a tweet from Global Times said. A level 3 alert, which forbids the hunting and eating of animals that could carry plague and calls on the public to report suspected cases, has been put in place until the end of the year.
Researchers: COVID-19 spreads ten meters or more by breathing A plea issued by 239 scientists from around the world to recognize and mitigate airborne transmission of COVID-19 addressed to international health authorities is to be published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. The 239 signatories from 32 countries come from many different areas of science and engineering, including virology, aerosol physics, flow dynamics, exposure and epidemiology, medicine, and building engineering. Led by internationally recognized air quality and health expert QUT Professor Lidia Morawska, the appeal is to address the overwhelming research finding that an infected person exhales airborne virus droplets when breathing and talking that can travel further than the current 1.5m social distance requirement. “Studies by the signatories and other scientists have demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that viruses are exhaled in microdroplets small enough to remain aloft in the air and pose a risk of exposure beyond 1 to 2m by an infected person,” Professor Morawska, director of the International Air Quality and Health Laboratory, said.
Major weaknesses found in COVID-19 antibody tests, patients incorrectly told they’re immune Antibody tests are becoming a “game-changing” part of fighting the spread of COVID-19. Although they’re helping to find who has the coronavirus and who is already immune, a new review says antibody tests are giving some patients the wrong information. A study, published in The BMJ, finds the accuracy of COVID-19 antibody tests have major weaknesses; especially when they’re not done in a lab. Study authors recommend point-of-care tests, done directly with a patient outside a lab, should be discontinued. The international team of researchers examined 40 antibody studies taken in January through April. They all focused on how well the tests measured sensitivity (the number of people correctly diagnosed with COVID-19) and specificity (the number of people correctly found to not have the illness). Scientists say most of these studies present several issues with the evidence they collected. Half had never been reviewed by peers in the medical community. Most of the antibody studies were found to have a high or unknown risk of bias. This means the results could have been influenced during the tests.
Spain’s coronavirus antibodies study adds evidence against herd immunity Spain’s large-scale study on the coronavirus indicates just 5% of its population has developed antibodies, strengthening evidence that a so-called herd immunity to Covid-19 is “unachievable,” the medical journal the Lancet reported on Monday.The findings show that 95% of Spain’s population remains susceptible to the virus. Herd immunity is achieved when enough of a population has become infected with a virus or bacteria — or vaccinated against it — to stop its circulation.The European Center for Disease Control told CNN that Spain’s research, on a nationwide representative sample of more than 61,000 participants, appears to be the largest study to date among a dozen serological studies on the coronavirus undertaken by European nations.It adds to the findings of an antibody study involving 2,766 participants in Geneva, Switzerland, published in the Lancet on June 11. There have been similar studies in China and the United States and “the key finding from these representative cohorts is that most of the population appears to have remained unexposed” to Covid-19, “even in areas with widespread virus circulation,” said a Lancet commentary published along with Spain’s findings.
Groundbreaking Study Shows Shielding EMF Improves Autoimmune Disease Concerns about electromagnetic fields (EMF) are branded pseudoscientific conspiracy theories and relegated to the realm of tin-hat wearing quackery. However, a recent publication in the peer-reviewed journal Immunologic Research entitled “Electrosmog and Autoimmune Disease,” sheds new light on the validity of concerns about this so-called electrosmog with which we are constantly inundated. Although we encounter natural microwave electromagnetic radiation in the form of cosmic radiation from outer space, the aurora borealis, and thunderstorms, the vast majority of electrosmog that we encounter is largely manmade (1). These atmospheric phenomena, however, emit electromagnetic radiation at lower radio frequencies and are negligibly weak in comparison to manmade sources, which have increased exponentially due to the emergence of television, cellular phone technologies, and WiFi, all of which utilize microwave frequency bands (1). According to researchers Marshall and Heil (2017), for instance, “The recent release of WiGig and anti-collision vehicle radars in the 60 GHz region embody a 1000-fold increase in frequency, and photon energy, over the exposures mankind experienced up until the 1950s” (1).

Comment of The Day!
Hi Robert! I am so grateful to you for the advice that you gave me last week, on how to help my 6 year old daughter, who was hurt while jumping into our pool. I got the Arnica for internal use and topically for her. All of the bleeding is completely gone. My family thanks you; your such an inspiration. Trinity school of Natural Health here I come. Thank you Robert!!!

Hydroxychloroquine Hangs On Despite Global Attacks If you have been following corporate media outlets’ coverage of the ongoing coronavirus panic, you may have heard CNN talk about a “surprising new study” about a “controversial” drug. The study was just released by Henry Ford Health System, one of the largest hospital groups in Michigan. When given this “surprising” new “controversial” drug, there was a 51% decease in mortality of the patients with Covid-19. Dr. Marcus Zervos co-authored the peer-reviewed study out of Henry Ford, which has now been published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases. Dr. Zervos said in a press release that their study differs from others because of the “early treatment” of the patients along with dosing that “differed from other studies not showing benefit.” Health officials, now beginning to implement a second wave of lockdown ‘restrictions,’ must be jumping on this research to continue the momentum towards therapeutic mitigation strategies…right? Well, there’s just one problem. The drug being used was low-cost hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), touted and used by President Trump. After being used for approximately 65 years, hydroxychloroquine’s sudden ‘controversy’ came not from the drug itself, but from the politicalization of bad actors within the ranks of media, academia and science.
The 5 Biggest Scandals [so far] Of The Coronavirus Response Much of the developed world is facing a long, hot ‘summer of the mask,’ as politicians and public officials bring down new orders to cover the faces of their populations. A sanity-seeking public has mostly been met with “facts” that shift daily and politicized science that leaves core truths elusive. There have been scandals that spur questions about what is really happening behind this extended virus campaign. Clearing the air of the smokescreen of fear and narrative-driven headlines, major mishandling and open fraud have been smeared across the coronavirus landscape. Here are just five scandals to consider
WILL GOVERNORS ESCAPE BLAME FOR NURSING HOME DISASTER? After months of public outcry from angry Americans over the catastrophic mismanagement of nursing homes during the Covid-19 crisis, the government has decided to take action. It was first announced in mid-June that the U.S. House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis sent letters to five of the country’s largest for-profit nursing home companies, as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Concerned about “lax oversight,” the committee demanded detailed data and reports on their handling of the Covid crisis. “We write today to seek documents and information regarding CMS’s actions to protect vulnerable Americans in nursing homes.” wrote Chairman James E. Clyburn. The letter went on to state how CMS imposed only limited reporting requirements on nursing homes. On May 1, 2020, CMS implemented an interim rule requiring nursing homes to begin reporting weekly data on coronavirus infections and deaths, tests, and equipment. Inexplicably, CMS did not require comprehensive data prior to May 8, 2020—even though the first nursing home outbreak began in February. Some facilities failed to report any data in their initial submission. Despite CMS’s broad legal authority, the agency largely deferred to states, local governments, and for-profit nursing homes to respond to the coronavirus crisis. This was where things went from bad to worse.
Post-Pandemic Americans May Be Done With Taking Orders On June 19, the mayor of Cottonwood, Arizona, unilaterally ordered city residents to wear face masks in public places. A week later, my family went downtown to grab some lunch at a favorite barbecue joint. The proclamation might as well have never been issued; we were among the very few people wearing masks on the street or in the stores. The residents of Cottonwood aren’t alone; compliance with orders from on-high is losing popularity across the country. One of the COVID-19 pandemic’s legacies may well be an overwhelming public fatigue with being told what to do. Truthfully, Cottonwood Mayor Tim Elinski couldn’t have handled the mask order any more poorly. His order came after he lost a vote on the issue—which he admitted after the fact that he had held only because he thought he would win. The end result, then, was predetermined; he just didn’t get the cover he’d anticipated from the city council. That annoyed people as much as the mask mandate itself. It didn’t have to be that way. A few days later I watched a woman stop in front of a sign posted in front of the local Safeway. She reached into her purse, pulled out a mask, and then entered the supermarket with her face covered as requested. As I watched, a steady stream of people mostly did the same. Asking nicely proved more effective than government commands at getting people to don masks.
