Video: Dr. Fauci Blasts Media’s Constant Effort To ‘Divide’ Him And President Trump

While Trump focuses on hope, the media accuses him of pushing ‘dangerous’ promises of a cure for coronavirus

Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, slammed the media Sunday, accusing reporters of constantly trying to sow division between him and President Trump.

Appearing on CBS News’ Face the Nation, Dr. Fauci discussed the issue of Trump making statements about medical matters that the doctor may not be able to back up with science.

Dr. Fauci dismissed the issue as a media campaign to obstruct the coordination of the coronavirus response by continually looking for differences between what the NIAID director and the president both say.

“I think there’s this issue of trying to separate the two of us,” Dr. Fauci said, adding “There isn’t fundamentally a difference there. He’s coming from a hope standpoint. I’m coming from it from a scientific standpoint.”

“There’s an issue here of where we’re coming from. The president has heard, as we all have heard, are what I call ‘anecdotal reports’ that certain drugs work. So, what he was trying to do, and express, was the hope that it might work, let’s try and push their usage,” Fauci stated.

“I, on the other hand, am not disagreeing with the fact that, anecdotally, they might work. But my view is to prove, definitively, from a scientific standpoint, that they do work. So I was taking a purely medical, scientific standpoint. And the president was trying to bring hope to the people.” he further explained.

The President tweeted over the weekend regarding a potential combination of the drugs Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin as a possible treatment for the virus.

The media and leftist ‘never Trumpers’ responded by trying to pick apart Trump’s words, suggesting that he is advocating people start taking the drugs:

A Mother Jones article Saturday accused the president of “pushing a dangerous drug” and urging people not to listen to his advice.

The response prompted Don Trump Jr. to respond “This bullshit is why everyone hates and doesn’t trust the media”:

Leftist Journo Takes Pleasure In US Becoming Worst Hit Coronavirus Nation: ‘Who’s The S***hole Country Now?’

“If you needed anymore evidence these people hate America.”

A leftist columnist seemingly took pleasure in the fact that the US has become the country with the most confirmed cases of coronavirus by mocking President Trump and proclaiming “Who’s the shithole country now?”

Julia Ioffe, who writes for GQ, tweeted out the inane comment along with a link to a New York Times story on the development.

Of course, Ioffe provided no salient facts or useful information, such as President Trump’s assertion that the spike in confirmed cases is down to more robust testing being rolled out.

Nor did Ioffe indicate that in comparison with other hard hit countries, the mortality rate in the US stands at 1.5%, which equates to much fewer deaths per confirmed cases than Italy (10%), Spain (8%), Iran (7.6%) and France (6%).

No, Ioffe simply wanted to vent her pent up Trump derangement syndrome.

Americans are not amused:

Meanwhile, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx, slammed the media Thursday during the daily briefing, for hyping as yet unverified claims that there will not be enough beds or ventilators to deal with coronavirus patients:

Singapore to Jail People For 6 Months For Standing Too Close to Strangers

Social distancing police state is here.

Published

on

Singapore is set to punish people who stand too close to strangers with 6 months in prison as the true scope of “social distancing” measures begins to be felt around the world.

According to a press release from the country’s Ministry of Health, Singaporeans who fail to maintain a distance of one meter from other people during “non-transient” public interactions can be fined 10,000 Singapore dollars ($6,985) or hit with 6 months in jail.

The measure is obviously designed to target groups of people who congregate or people who visit their friends and relatives.

As the resentment of being forced to live under quarantine lockdown for weeks and possibly months builds, authorities across the world are undoubtedly going to face a growing backlash from the citizenry, no matter how bad the spread of coronavirus.

In France, a 35-year-old man was sent to prison after repeatedly violating lockdown measures after being found guilty of “endangering the lives of others.”

Another 19-year-old man was handed a 4 month suspended prison sentence for repeatedly flouting the measures 10 times in just a few days.

In Jordan, authorities initially banned everyone from going outside, even to buy food, leading to the arrest of 800 people.

More than 90,000 Italians have also been hit with fines for violating quarantine while transgressors in Spain can face up to 18 months in prison.

As we highlighted yesterday, one police force in the UK is using drone surveillance technology to spy on people who walk their dogs in remote areas and then track down their home address.

Meanwhile, in “troubled” areas of European cities such as Seine-Saint-Denis in Paris, migrants are virtually immune from quarantine measures because large groups of them intimidate police if they try to enforce them.

“We are not going to give up. But we also know where these people live and how they live. Strict containment, for them, is just impossible,” a police officer working in the area said.

Study: 80,000 Coronavirus Deaths Expected In US By Summer

Comparable to a 9/11 death toll every day for months

Published

A study by leading health researchers in the US has concluded that 80,000 Americans are expected to die from coronavirus by this Summer, even if social distancing measures are observed.

The research by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine, found that national hospital capacity is likely to be overwhelmed by the second week of April.

The lower end of death toll estimate is 38,000, with the worst case scenario expected to exceed 162,000 deaths within four months.

The data the researchers analysed includes current hospitalisation and mortality rates, in addition to the age, gender and pre-existing health problems of patients.

The IHME model also predicts that up to 2,300 patients could die every day when the peak of the crisis hits.

“Our estimated trajectory of COVID-19 deaths assumes continued and uninterrupted vigilance by the general public, hospital workers, and government agencies,” said Christopher Murray, IHME director.

“The trajectory of the pandemic will change — and dramatically for the worse — if people ease up on social distancing or relax with other precautions.” he added.

The study found that at least 21 US states will run out of intensive care unit beds, and that at least 12 of those states need 50 percent or more beds to deal with the influx of patients that will occur.

It’s a grim warning that the forecasters hope will spur action.

“We hope these forecasts will help leaders of medical systems figure out innovative ways to deliver high-quality care to those who will need their services in the coming weeks,” said Murray.

At time of writing (March 27, am) the US now has more confirmed cases of coronavirus than any other country on the globe, including China. Some 86,000 are now confirmed to have the virus, with 1,300 deaths so far.

President Trump has suggested that this reflects a high rate of testing compared to other countries.
