Recovered Coronavirus Patients Who Have Traces of COVID-19 in Their Bodies Could Infect Others, Doctor Warns
Traces of COVID-19—the new coronavirus that has been diagnosed in tens of thousands of people—have been detected in recovered patients, leading a Chinese expert to raise concerns they could still be contagious even after their symptoms have passed. “This is dangerous. Where do you put these patients? You can’t send them home because they might infect others, but you can’t put them in hospital as resources are stretched,” SCMP quotes him as saying.

Hysteria over coronavirus in Italy is reminiscent of the black death
The largest European outbreak of coronavirus is now in Italy, where it has infected more than 150 people, and killed six. In response, the government has quarantined 11 towns, shuttered schools, called off football games, and advised citizens to avoid leaving home altogether. Frantic citizens preparing for the worst have emptied grocery stores. Alarm over the disease is fueling hysteria and discrimination. A panicked search for the so-called patient zero—the first to bring the virus into the country—is being described by the Italian media as a “hunt.”

AI system discovers powerful new antibiotic to tackle superbugs
“We wanted to develop a platform that would allow us to harness the power of artificial intelligence to usher in a new age of antibiotic drug discovery,” says James Collins, senior author of the study. “Our approach revealed this amazing molecule which is arguably one of the more powerful antibiotics that has been discovered.” The molecule in question has been named halicin, after the AI system HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey. No doubt it’s a tip of the hat to the method used to discover the new drug, but we can’t help but feel that it sounds oddly ominous.

Is AOC About To Lose Her Job?
The fact that Nancy Pelosi and her fellow establishment Dems aren’t too fond of AOC and her ‘squad’ of female leftist ideologues is hardly news.

‘What Coverup?’: WHO Refuses To Acknowledge China’s Early Censorship Of Outbreak
For the most part, the WHO briefing on its visit was everything we feared it would be: Nothing revelatory, just long, boring droning and lukewarm praise about China’s response to the outbreak, without once mentioning any kind of coverup. One reporter apparently felt empowered to challenge the Chinese censors and ask about the cover-up, to which the WHO responded: ‘What coverup?’

As terrorists fire 80+ rockets at Israel, Sen. Bernie Sanders says he’s boycotting AIPAC conference, will cut military aid to Israel, will give the money to Hamas in Gaza.

Globalists Look To Exploit Coronavirus In Push For Global Government
Once you understand the globalist mindset, almost everything they do becomes rather robotic and predictable. It should not be surprising that the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations, has been so aggressive in cheerleading for the Chinese government and its response to the coronavirus outbreak. After all, China’s communist surveillance state model is a beta test for the type of centralization that the UN wants for the entire planet. They certainly aren’t going to point out that it was China’s totalitarian system that allowed the outbreak to spread from the very beginning.

Erdogan Gives “Final Warning” Before Launching Gog-Magog War Against “Edom” Russia

A (Turkish) offensive in Idlib is only a matter of time.” “Erdogan’s aggression towards mega-power Russia is, on its face, illogical,” Rabbi Winston said. “Everything is from Hashem (God, literally, ‘the name’) but when world leaders begin to act illogically, that is Hashem playing an even larger direct role in events.”

Belgian city of Aalst says anti-Semitic parade ‘just fun’

Fighter Tyson Fury Stuns Crowd At WBC Heavyweight Boxing Championship Saturday By Licking Blood Off Deontay Wilder Like An Animal In Heat
Organized professional sports in America in the 21st century bear little resemblance to their original roots as games of skill, honor and respect. To see what I mean, just go to YouTube and watch some basketball or baseball games from the 1970’s, they all look like skinny children running around. Nothing like the overly-muscled, PED-fueledcartoon creatures they look like today.
