The US gov't has agreed to pay Lilly pharmaceuticals $375,000,000 for 300,000 doses of a supposed antibody drug.

The funny part is their claim it'll be made available at no cost.

It has come down to this:  Vote for Biden or someone you know will die.  No, I am not exaggerating.

White House is definitely jumping the gun. A little bit. Everyone knows the Covid ends November 4.

As dictated by hoary tradition, somebody else’s.  We must conserve our values, after all...

According to Winston Churchill,

Americans always do the right thing, after they have exhausted all other possibilities.

Remember, the Republican led US governments have been responsible for some of the worst foreign policy decisions ever, ever..

Vietnam, Nicaragua, ME oil wars and Churchill's references to their stupidity at the end of WW2.

So, the pattern has repeated with covid.... The US will get to a better answer after trying all the wrong ones....like a four year old doing an assisted multiple choice exam...

Winston was spot on.l

So can we declare that the "Masks = Loss of Freedom" experiment has enough data points now to make a judgement?

The third wave is surging in all the midwestern states with rural populations. I seem to recall they are of a particular political persuasion. That Darwin fellow really knew his shit.

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, we are working with local authorities and partner organisations in key locations around the United States to improve the response for vulnerable people groups—those who are normally excluded from healthcare, or who are likely to be overlooked during the current pandemic.        

https://msf.org.au/country-region/usa

back in July

COMPLETED COVID-19 PROJECTS IN THE USA 

Between the end of May to 31 July, MSF staff provided support to 55 long-term care facilities in Michigan, including nursing homes and adult foster care homes. With extremely high numbers of COVID-19 cases appearing in nursing home residents and staff in Michigan, MSF launched a response to provide direct, in-person support to nursing home staff to improve infection prevention measures. Our staff provided assessments and general guidance on infection prevention and control, technical on-site support and training, and mental health workshops. Following the closure of this project in July, MSF has provided a toolkit for nursing schools to incorporate into their public health program, with the hope that the program piloted in Michigan can be adopted by schools of nursing nationwide.

 

 

In New York City, our focus is improving infection prevention and control (IPC) measures for vulnerable populations. We have opened temporary shower trailers in Manhattan for those who are homeless or housing insecure; we have now provided more than 2000 showers, along with toiletries, clean socks and underwear. We have also donated over 160 handwashing stations to soup kitchens and supportive housing facilities for example, and we continue to distribute 1,000 mobile phones to vulnerable New Yorkers who lack the essential technology needed to contact emergency, tele-health and other support services. We are also supporting the NYC Department of Homeless Services in developing a webinar training on COVID-19 and infection control and prevention practices (IPC).        

In the state of Michigan, there have been 66,000 confirmed cases and more than 6,000 deaths. Nursing homes are of particular concern, as 7,100 residents and more than 3,100 staff have contracted COVID-19. MSF is coordinating with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Detroit Health Department to quickly identify which nursing homes are in need of IPC measures. Our teams are providing assessments and general guidance to improve IPC practices, technical on-site support and training, and mental health workshops.
