Those deadly masks

“Moreover,” the study concludes, “the moderate positive correlation between mask usage and deaths in Western Europe also suggests that the universal use of masks may have had harmful unintended consequences.”

Covid is over

The Wuhan virus, unleashed by the Chinese Communist Party, is done. It’s burned out.

“We’re not supposed to say ‘COVID is over,’ but that’s about all there is to say when India’s latest breakout has almost nobody getting sick and doctors call it ‘no cause for concern.’

“Caseloads in the major city of Mumbai more than quadrupled in recent weeks, from 300 per month to nearly 400 each week. Despite the increase, “A lone death was reported in Gondhia,” according to The Times of India.”

“Nevertheless, the lockdown grinds on as Xi attempts the impossible with his zero COVID fever. Some (Shanghai) residents, broke and increasingly hungry, are making the last desperate act of defiance. They’re throwing themselves out of their high-rise apartments.”

The second booster

Haven’t gotten it yet. May not after hearing from an OCS classmate that he has developed heart trouble, which fits right in with some of the summaries of research I have been reading lately. Also blood clots in both lungs, which rings a bell. Sleep apnea seems to be an outlier. His maker was Pfizer and all he had was the two to start and one booster. Adverse reactions being at a minimum are no comfort when they are striking our small (under fifty) group.

Garlic: Not just for vampires and spaghetti

After an OCS chum said his wife’s doctor advised consuming garlic as a non-prescription hedge against Covid, I remembered an article that said Israeli consumption of garlic is second only per capita to China. The claim is that people who consume a lot of this pre-antibiotic folk remedy for infection, get bitten by fewer mosquitoes and generally stay healthy.

Reminds me of my Texas mother when we lived in Libya, in North Africa, when I was six. My 5-year-old sister and I liked to run barefoot through the dirt, which bothered mother no end. Whenever she caught us at it, she would turn to the lore of her Texas upbringing and make us eat a clove of garlic each to stave off the ringworm fungus, among other things. It was awful. So we worked hard not to get caught.

Chinese tests

I ordered the “free,” at-home test kit for Covid from the post office and then discovered that they are made in China (according to Reuters)—though presumably not in Wuhan, that would be just too ironic. Of course there are American companies that make the kits but America first went out with Trump. The feds under Biden prefer to spend our money overseas.

UPDATE: PJMedia says the tests are made in South Korea and are pretty much wiped out in below 36 degree temps sitting in mailboxes. Also above 86 degrees, but we’re not likely to get that high for a while.

Don’t jab the children

So says virologist and medical doctor Robert Malone who says NPR’s recent message for the kiddies that Big Bird had to get jabbed to save Grandma is just perverse. We’re exposing children to risk of side effects like heart disease in order to save the elderly. The latest kabuki from the government, so Moderna and Pfizer can make lots of money. And their politico investors.
