Harvard Doctor Tells White House ‘Talking And Breathing Is Spreading Coronavirus’

Only talk when it’s essential?

The chairman of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has reported to the White House that simply talking and breathing could be spreading the coronavirus, according to new research.

Dr Harvey Fineberg, who is also a former Harvard School of Public Health dean, discussed his advice to the Trump administration with CNN, noting that aerosolized coronavirus droplets are capable of lingering in the air and infecting anyone who walks by, even hours later.

“While the current [coronavirus] specific research is limited, the results of available studies are consistent with aerosolization of virus from normal breathing,” Dr. Fineberg wrote in the letter to the White House.

“This letter responds to your question concerning the possibility that [coronavirus] could be spread by conversation, in addition to sneeze/cough – induced droplets. Currently, available research supports the possibility that [coronavirus] could be spread via bioaerosols generated directly by patient exhalation.” the letter also states.

Dr Fineberg’s comments dovetail with recent research conducted by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The letter also notes that research carried out by the University of Nebraska has shown that the virus was present in rooms more than six feet away from coronavirus patients.

Dr Fineberg said that the potency of the virus in the air depends on “how much virus an infected individual puts out when breathing or talking, and also … the amount of circulation in the air.” He also noted that research suggests the virus “can remain viable and infectious” in the air for at least three hours.

“If you generate an aerosol of the virus with no circulation in a room, it’s conceivable that if you walk through later, you could inhale the virus,” Fineberg explained. “But if you’re outside, the breeze will likely disperse it.”

The findings may lead to a change in guidance previously issued by the World Health Organisation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to stay six feet away from other people. It may also prompt the government to advise that everyone in the US wears face masks when leaving home.

Dr Fineberg said that while surgical masks should be reserved for health care workers, he intends to wear a bandanna or other face covering when shopping for food and essentials.

“I’m not going to wear a surgical mask, because clinicians need those,” Fineberg said, adding “But I have a nice western-style bandana I might wear. Or I have a balaclava. I have some pretty nice options.”

Some officials in the US have already implemented mandatory use of face masks, under threat of fines or even arrest, while others are urging citizens to wear them.

There is sure to be a renewed scramble for face masks if the advice is officially implemented, however, it may be difficult to acquire the masks, given that shops have shortages and Amazon has banned the sale of them.

Man Says “I Have COVID,” Spits at Hikers For Not Wearing Masks

Logic malfunction.

A man who was angry at a pair of female hikers for not wearing masks spat at them before claiming, “I have COVID.”

The video clip shows the man walking up to the pair before he spits towards them and says, “I have COVID, I’ve been tested positive,” before spitting at them again.

“Are you OK?” asks one of them women, to which he responds, “no”.

Throughout the encounter, what appears to be the man’s wife is frantically calling on him to end the confrontation.

According to the The Ashburnham Police Department, the man had told the women it was the “law” to wear masks and that they were “irresponsible” for not doing so.

A longer video provided to CNN apparently shows the man asking, “You’re not wearing a mask?”

“I don’t care, I’m not gonna wear a mask when I’m outside,” responds one of the women.

After he spat at them, the man also called the women “completely arrogant.

“The man could face a misdemeanor charge of assault and a charge of false threat of a biological agent, which is a felony,” reports CNN.

OK, there’s a lot to unpack here.

First of all, this guy has obviously being driven crazy by hysterical media propaganda about COVID.

Secondly, he’s not even wearing a mask over his face when he confronts the women.

The irony of him asserting the women are being “irresponsible” by not wearing masks as he literally spits at them doesn’t need to be explained.

Face masks are now legally mandated in all outdoor areas in Massachusetts and there is no exemption for people who are exercising or hiking, despite the fact that this could actually pose a serious health risk.

Coronavirus

Head of WHO Suggests COVID Restrictions Will Continue Even After Vaccine

Welcome to the new normal.

The head of the World Health Organization has suggested that coronavirus restrictions will continue even after a vaccine has been made widely available.

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the comments on Twitter after news broke of several new vaccines said to be effective in fighting COVID-19 coming closer to fruition.

“Since the beginning of the #COVID19 pandemic, we knew that a vaccine would be essential for bringing the pandemic under control. But it’s important to emphasise that a vaccine will complement the other tools we have, not replace them,” said Ghebreyesus.

He went on to add that quarantines, surveillance, contact tracing and other measures would all be continued even after vaccine uptake becomes widespread.

As we have exhaustively highlighted, numerous other prominent individuals have asserted that rolling lockdowns, mask wearing, social distancing and other restrictions are here to stay after the pandemic is over.

In his book Covid-19: The Great Reset, World Economic Forum globalist Klaus Schwab asserts that the world will “never” return to normal, despite him admitting that coronavirus “doesn’t pose a new existential threat.”

A senior U.S. Army official also said that mask wearing and social distancing will become permanent, while CNN’s international security editor Nick Paton Walsh asserted that the mandatory wearing of masks will become “permanent,” “just part of life,” and that the public would need to “come to terms with it.”

Commenting on the issue, Joseph Massey said Ghebreyesus’ statement re-affirmed the fact that COVID lockdowns are more about “social engineering” than ending a pandemic.

“I’m not a conspiracy theorist, nor am I a COVID denier, but people like this make it difficult not to believe that lockdowns are more about social engineering than they are about stopping the virus,” he tweeted. “A vaccine is not a “complement” to being isolated and muzzled like an animal.”

Qantas Airways CEO Says COVID Vaccination Will be Mandatory For Travel

“We will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft.”

The CEO of Qantas says that the COVID-19 vaccine will be mandatory for anyone boarding his flights and that this will become the norm for all international travel.

“We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say, for international travelers, that we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft,” said Alan Joyce.

“I think that’s going to be a common thing talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe,” he told Australian news program A Current Affair.

Qantas will only resume flights to the US and the UK once a jab comes to market.

As we previously reported, airlines across the world are likely to introduce similar measures once the coronavirus vaccine is widely available.

“Three global alliances representing 58 airlines are pushing governments to allow widespread COVID-19 testing of passengers instead of existing quarantine restrictions that they argue are ineffective and have killed travel demand,” reported Axios.

The system would likely be organized under the auspices of CommonPass, a program sponsored by the World Economic Forum, which is pushing for a post-COVID “Great Reset” that would transform the world.

Ticketmaster is also considering introducing a system where customers have to prove they’ve taken the vaccine before being allowed to buy tickets for music and sports events.
