COVID-19…Have You Heard? There Is Good News! As of July 5th 2020, more than 1 Million Americans have been confirmed as recovered according to data compiled from each of the 56 US State & Territory Health Departments (USSTHD). This is undoubtedly good news and provides a source of hope for our beleaguered society. While every recovery is to be celebrated, we also respect the physical demands recovery has placed upon many Americans and honor that the process of recovery is not without its own unique challenges or potential for long-term adverse health impacts. What we share in our collective work is a data-focused perspective and is never meant to marginalize the experiences of anyone adversely impacted by an infection. The purpose of this statistical research paper is to provide the reader with a fresh and unique perspective regarding the SARS-CoV-2 virus, commonly referred to as the COVID-19 infection. One of the great concerns we have as authors and professionals is the skewed methodology of data reporting, leading to ambiguity in what the correct course of action regarding public health policy should be moving forward.
Key Findings For Data Through July 5th
- Increases in new cases in Texas, Arizona, Florida & California demonstrate a clear correlation with significant increases in PCR testing, but the percentage of these new cases that require hospitalization, or result in a fatality, are far lower than what occurred in NY & NJ.
- Texas, Arizona, Florida & California do not statistically qualify as ‘new epicenters’ and additional executive orders, including a 2nd ‘Stay At Home’ order and major alterations to traditional in-person education, is not statistically justified particularly in light of Probability of Recovery.
- Fatalities Per Week have decreased nationally, each week, for the 10th consecutive week according to data published by each of the 56 US State & Territory Health Departments.
- At least, 1,045,888 Americans have been confirmed as recovered according to data published by each of the 56 US State & Territory Health Departments.
Why covid-19 antibody tests are not the game changer the UK government claims On 21 May England’s health and social care secretary, Matt Hancock, called reliable SARS-CoV-2 antibody testing on a large scale “an important milestone” in developing “immunity passports.” Such documents would, said Hancock, differentiate between people who had recovered from covid-19 and those still vulnerable to infection, freeing many from social distancing and giving people who have the antibodies assurances of what they could safely do. On 10 June, however, the head of the NHS Test and Trace programme, Dido Harding, said not enough was known about the level of protection that coronavirus antibodies provided. “I know we all want it to be true that if we have antibodies it will then mean we are free to do things others are not,” she told a press briefing. “But at the moment . . . if we have an antibody test what it tells you is you have antibodies.” And on 24 June The BMJ published a letter from a group of senior clinical academics and physicians publicly questioning the government’s antibody testing strategy,1 just as the first systematic review of studies on covid-19 antibody tests is set to be published. Jon Deeks, professor of biostatistics at the University of Birmingham and The BMJ’s chief statistician, who led the Cochrane review, said the analysis shows that “we don’t have much data [on the tests] and we can’t trust any of it.”
FOX 35 INVESTIGATES: Florida Department of Health says some labs have not reported negative COVID-19 results After FOX 35 News noticed errors in the state’s report on positivity rates, the Florida Department of Health said that some laboratories have not been reporting negative test result data to the state. Countless labs have reported a 100 percent positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive. Other labs had very high positivity rates. FOX 35 News found that testing sites like one local Centra Care reported that 83 people were tested and all tested positive. Then, NCF Diagnostics in Alachua reported 88 percent of tests were positive. How could that be? FOX 35 News investigated these astronomical numbers, contacting every local location mentioned in the report. The report showed that Orlando Health had a 98 percent positivity rate. However, when FOX 35 News contacted the hospital, they confirmed errors in the report. Orlando Health’s positivity rate is only 9.4 percent, not 98 percent as in the report. The report also showed that the Orlando Veteran’s Medical Center had a positivity rate of 76 percent. A spokesperson for the VA told FOX 35 News on Tuesday that this does not reflect their numbers and that the positivity rate for the center is actually 6 percent.
Shoppers In England Face $125 Fine For Not Wearing Masks Face coverings will become mandatory in shops and supermarkets in England from July 24 as part of a dual move to keep the spread of coronavirus low and to attract more people back to shopping malls and high streets. The maximum penalty for non-compliance is £100 (about $125). The government allowed non-essential stores to reopen on June 15 and it has been considering making face masks compulsory in line with Scotland, and some other European Union countries like Spain and Italy, both of which were hit hard by Covid-19. Yesterday there were 530 new Covid-19 cases, down 90% since the peak of the U.K. health crisis. Just 11 deaths were also reported, the lowest figure since March 13. The Office of National Statistics says that total deaths are currently lower than usual for this time of year. This afternoon, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock said in parliament: “We cannot let our progress today lead to complacency tomorrow. In recent weeks we’ve opened retail, and footfall is rising. We want to give people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protections for those who work in shops. Both of these can be done by the use of face coverings.”
Comment of The Day!
Hello RSB and Super D!
I know this story may be a little late but I felt compelled to share it! Back in Feburary my 7 year old was ill and feverish. My main concern is always hydration during illness. Well my son was no longer accepting water without throwing up. I began to get worried but then I thought about colloidal silver. So I started giving it to him a half tsp every hour after. Just after 4 or 5 doses he began to be able to drink water and keep it down and soon began to ask for water on his own. Thank you for introducing me to colloidal silver!

P.S. I’m still around but so many changes in life caused me to stop being in youtube chat. And my son is still doing great on the Beta Glucan. Only 2 illnesses last year instead of 5 or 6!!
Hi Robert and Super Don,
It occurred to me that anyone who will threaten physical violence because someone is not wearing a face mask is not using their brain. Wouldn’t a physical altercation completely violate the very things they think keeps them safe (I.e., social distancing, possibly losing their mask, etc.)?
If they are willing to do that, how afraid could they possibly be? Are they even considering that?
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Chronic Corruption Part I: A History of Incompetence We all want to believe that we live in a fundamentally good world. A world in which our leaders serve the best interests of the greater good, in which our most wealthy and successful citizens and companies use their influence to help others, and where communities come together to support one another in times of crisis. A world where an organization like the CDC would actually act in the best interests of public health and individual well being. Sadly, this simply isn’t the case.
CDC Director: It’s Time For Universal Masking To End Covid-19 Pandemic Universal nationwide use of face masks could bring the spread of the Coronavirus strain Covid-19 under control within four to eight weeks, the head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. In an interview with the editor of JAMA, Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control is advocating all Americans wear masks and face coverings as a way to end the Covid-19 pandemic. “The time is now,” Redfield told Dr. Howard Bauchner, editor of JAMA during the interview, which was live Tuesday afternoon. “The data is clearly there. Masking works.” If the American public all embraced masking along with social distancing and hand-washing, Redfield said “we could bring this outbreak to its knees” within four to eight weeks. The CDC first recommended that Americans wear face masks to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in early April but not all states have followed through and the Donald Trump White House hasn’t advocated that all Americans wear masks, further politicizing the issue. Trump earlier this month said he was “all for masks,” but that was considered a change in tune and he hadn’t urged the wearing of masks prior to that statement and Vice President Mike Pence has, too, sent conflicting messages on mask-wearing.
Introducing the United Medical Freedom Super PAC What does freedom mean to you? The right to free speech? The right to bear arms? The right to worship as you see fit? At its core, freedom means autonomy. The right to decide how you want to live your life. The right to make decisions for you and your family without interference from governments, armies, or corporate interests. That includes the freedom of medical choice. Can you imagine a world in which the government told you what you could and couldn’t eat? What if there was a mandate telling you how much you needed to exercise or when you should go to bed? The government has absolutely NO BUSINESS meddling in our health and medical choices. And yet that’s exactly what they’re trying to do. Whether you support medical interventions like vaccines and chemotherapy, we all share a common belief that American citizens should never be forced to undergo treatment against their will. But corrupt politicians – and the corporate interests that sponsor them – have been actively fighting to strip you of your fundamental rights. From medical kidnapping to mandatory vaccinations and stay at home orders, our public servants have betrayed us. Those meant to serve the people have taken it upon themselves to strip us of the very freedoms that define us. It’s time to fight back.
Ohio County Implements Hotline to Report People Not Wearing Masks Cuyahoga County has taken Ohio governor Mike DeWine’s mask order to the next level by establishing a hotline that allows people to report others for not wearing what is now considered proper attire in the new era of the Chinese coronavirus, according to a report by Cleveland.com. The report added that the governor’s mask order will largely rely upon complaints filed by the public, rather than proactive policing. “This is not intended to be going out and finding people not wearing masks,” insisted Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish in an announcement on Friday. “We want people to wear their masks — we want people to do it voluntarily.” “There’s not enough people in law enforcement throughout the county to track down people, chase them around and figure out who we can go after for not wearing a mask,” added Budish. After a complaint is filed, county workers will then contact the person or business to inform them that they have been reported. Complaints will also be forwarded to the Board of Health, as well as the relevant city or village.
U.S. Troops Will Be Among the First to Get COVID-19 Vaccine Operation Warp Speed (OWS) under way at the federal level is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has a goal of delivering 300 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by January 2021. Meeting that goal is part of a broader strategy to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics.2 The U.S. military is playing a significant role in OWS. General Gustave Perna is chief operating officer of OWS. Army Lieutenant General Paul Ostrowski is leading the supply, production and distribution directorate, and Army Brigadier General Michael McCurry is leading the security assurance directorate. In addition, 36 additional Department of Defense personnel are working on the OWS.3 The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) announced that it has selected a lead vaccine candidate among the many experimental COVID-19 vaccines that Army researchers have been working on since the beginning of the year. They plan on testing leading candidate vaccines in human trials in late 2020.4
Anthony Fauci has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on: Peter Navarro Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on. In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives. When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry. When I was working feverishly on behalf of the president in February to help engineer the fastest industrial mobilization of the health care sector in our history, Fauci was still telling the public the China virus was low risk. When we were building new mask capacity in record time, Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks. And when Fauci was telling the White House Coronavirus Task Force that there was only anecdotal evidence in support of hydroxychloroquine to fight the virus, I confronted him with scientific studies providing evidence of safety and efficacy. A recent Detroit hospital study showed a 50% reduction in the mortality rate when the medicine is used in early treatment.
