20200405: CoronaCRISIS/ China Virus Daily Thread

For the time being, given our national emergency, we are switching to DAILY COVID-19/China Virus threads instead of weekly threads. Your comments and updates are most welcome. PLEASE continue to post your valuable information, hard source links, and local observations within these Daily Threads. Additionally, we will try to include links to government and official pressers, so those who no longer have cable can remain informed.

We’ll get through this crisis, together. As a group, there is probably no one better prepared than we are.

For our newcomers: The Q Tree community has been diligent in covering the threat of Coronavirus, COVID19, Wuhan FLU. We started accumulating information about this virus in mid-late January, in what became almost weekly threads. We’ve been weeks, if not months, ahead of MSM outlets to vet rumors and other medical papers, etc.

Primary Update Links:

In our past weekly threads, we assembled information on the following:

  • Primary update links. The dashboard from Johns Hopkins which counts “official” cases all over the world, the CDC, and WHO, and includes the links for our past threads.
  • Hard Data Medical Information- Explanation about testing, reliance on China for drugs, analysis of NE Journal of Medicine results and other published papers.
  • Vaccine and theraputics (new/old drugs to alleviate symptoms) news and updates 
  • Trump Administration response (the timeline and links to various agencies)
  • China Responses, timelines, research, attempt to cover actions, or secrecy in results discovered.
  • An aggregate of info/responses from other countries, listed by country.
  • Economic impact from around the world. A change in economic activity will indicate a “return to normal”.
  • Speculation/debunking on how the virus started
  • Media Bias, political response, and debunking section, like the article from AP News, overt bias from Politico, inflammatory headlines, etc.  
  • Other medical info to boost immune system, herbal remedies, ways to keep your house clean and NOT spread the virus to others. Excellent information to incorporate into daily lifestyle.
  • Hard links for OTHER valuable sources/blogs and a brief sentence or two about what they provide
  • Other news items

Our weekly updates. timelines, collection of valuable information, can be found here:

Please try to keep your sense of humor during this National Emergency, and remember, patience is a virtue.

Love to all!

  1. Can’t find where we were discussing this….

    NITRIC OXIDE – Coronavirus inhibitor

    1. Nitric Oxide Inhibits the Replication Cycle of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC544093/

    2. Dual effect of nitric oxide on SARS-CoV replication: viral RNA production and palmitoylation of the S protein are affected.

    Interestingly, Nitric Oxide also effective against avian and porcine viruses….animals from which have come other famous Chinese epidemics.

    1. Excellent! We drink a glass of HERBALIFE’s NiteWorks everyday, and have for many, many years. It’s a product that helps your body produce more nitric oxide, developed by Dr. Ignarro, who won the Nobel prize in science for the ground breaking discovery.

      If you’re interested, find an Herbalife distributor to help you. It’s like drinking a glass of lemonade. So easy!

    2. We discussed this very early on, and I acted on it. I took the spit test, as did DH and some friends. We were fine on nitric oxide, but we started to use beetroot powder, which helps the body produce NO, just in case. Can’t hurt, might help kind of thing. It was probably a month ago when we talked about it here, at least.

          Our neighbor’s children are outside playing every day…getting Vit D, being in the warm temperatures as well as exercising their bodies. Their mother is an ER doctor and she’s right out there with them.

        3. “They do not love themselves enough to sacrifices a visit or a grass cutting.”

          That’s incredibly presumptuous. Maybe the grass cutter has a family to care for and -asked- for the work. Maybe one of the relatives is having a tough time in isolation, and a decision was made that preventing suicide or drug relapse was more important than the virus. You don’t know what led to their decisions. Defaulting to “they don’t love themselves” as if you’re God and know their circumstances is arrogant.

            You’d be amazed what happens, for instance, with translations from English–>German–>English (or the other way ’round).

        Failure to rapidly adopt HCQ/AZM/Zn is an example of “refutation bias” in FAKE SCIENCE. Refutation bias is responsible for a lack of agility and intuitive response, just like confirmation bias is responsible for its own set of pathologies.

        A Japanese company reports that it has developed a drug that can kill the influenza virus within 1 day. However, even if the drug proves successful, it likely will not be available in the United States until 2019 at the earliest. According to the company, a late-stage trial involving Japanese and American influenza patients found that for people who took the experimental Shionogi compound, the median time to eliminate the virus was 24 hours. That is much faster than other influenza drugs on the market, and it only requires one dose…..

        As one of the worst flu seasons in years ravages the Northern Hemisphere, a powerful flu drug developed by Shionogi has been approved in Japan under a fast-track process. However, the U.S. may not see it before next winter.
        The new drug, called Xofluza (baloxavir marboxil), works by inhibiting cap-dependent endonuclease, which the flu virus relies on to duplicate in the human body.

        A phase 3 trial showed that it can effectively kill the flu virus in about 24 hours, while it takes Roche’s popular Tamiflu 72 hours to achieve that. Killing the virus faster means less opportunity for passing it to others….

        2. I posted this on the 5th March about researchers in Göttingen reporting on a similar (or perhaps the same) cure, with a number of papers attached. I think they are still outside of a paywall (though Elsevier is notorious for their, erm, aggressive funding):

          Researchers in Göttingen have identified a possible antiviral med, Camostat Mesilate, (already approved for use in Japan for other virii), and are testing it. They have a brief summary and a paper out. Hot off the press (as Elsevier’s pub date is in April 2020)…

          Here’s a summary:
          “The recent emergence of the novel, pathogenic SARS-coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in China and its rapid national and international spread pose a global health emergency. Cell entry of coronaviruses depends on binding of the viral spike (S) proteins to cellular receptors and on S protein priming by host cell proteases. Unravelling which cellular factors are used by SARS-CoV-2 for entry might provide insights into viral transmission and reveal therapeutic targets. Here, we demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2 uses the SARS-CoV receptor ACE2 for entry and the serine protease TMPRSS2 for S protein priming. A TMPRSS2 inhibitor approved for clinical use blocked entry and might constitute a treatment option. Finally, we show that the sera from convalescent SARS patients cross-neutralized SARS-2-S-driven entry. Our results reveal important commonalities between SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV infection and identify a potential target for antiviral intervention.”

          Original article from Focus countdown:

          Deutsche Forscher identifizieren mögliches Medikament gegen Coronavirus
          https://www.focus.de/gesundheit/news/coronavirus-ausbruch-im-news-ticker-deutsche-wirtschaft-schlaegt-rezessions-alarm-kind-infiziert-schule-in-bayern-dicht_id_11576018.html

          Topmeldung (22.31 Uhr): Die Wissenschaftler des Deutschen Primatenzentrums (Leibniz-Institut für Primatenforschung) in Göttingen haben im Rahmen einer Studie ein mögliches Medikament gegen das neuartige Coronavirus identifiziert. Zunächst hätten die Forscher ein zelluläres Enzym entdeckt, welches für das Eindringen des Virus in die Lungenzellen unverzichtbar sei – die Protease TMPRSS2.

          Ein bereits existierendes Medikament, das dieses Enzym hemmen kann, könnte insofern eine erfolgversprechende Behandlungsmöglichkeit darstellen, so die Wissenschaftler weiter. Das Medikament, das den Namen Camostat Mesilate trägt, sei bereits in Japan zugelassen. Nun untersuchten die Forscher, ob es die Infektion mit SARS-CoV-2 verhindern kann. „Wir haben SARS-CoV-2 aus einem Patienten getestet und festgestellt, dass Camostat Mesilate das Eindringen des Virus in Lungenzellen blockiert“, sagt Markus Hoffmann, Erstautor der Studie.

          And another, about how the body creates antibodies and fights Corona

          So the RKI (Robert Koch Institut) and other German medical authorities (med-deep-state) seem to have ignored all of this, and are still pushing for a “homegrown” solution when many other, cheaper, effective, and currently available cures exist.

    1. Indeed, but then again…the founders found that sort of thing to be a STATE issue. And Trump has indeed followed that as best as able. The states have been understood from the beginning to have something called the “Police Power” which involved keeping order, maintaining public health, and so on. It was their prerogative.

      The Constitution and Bill of Rights originally placed almost NO restrictions on the states. There were a number of powers transferred from the states to the feds, there are a handful of places where the Constitution says “No state shall…”–but other than that, nothing.

      What about the Bill of Rights? It was not conceived of as applying to the states. A couple of states, in fact continued to have established churches well into the 1800s, even though this would be a blatant violation of the establishment clause, if the BOR applied to the states.

      Only with the 14th amendment…after all those people in the painting were long dead…did anyone come up with the idea that the protections in the BOR could be forced upon states that didn’t abide by them (most did, anyway).

      So if a state quarantined people because of an epidemic (they didn’t know about viruses back then but sure knew about epidemics)…I’m sure the Framers would not have seen a Constitutional issue with it.

        So proud of President Trump INSISTING on respecting state’s right, PUSHING states to take responsibility and fulfill their role and doing everything he can to Not use &/or expand fed gov power. He is teaching states to step back up to the plate. Great balance and so proud of him

  5. HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE – we have 29,000,000 doses stockpiled.

    FDA approved. Have to go through your doctor to get a prescription.

    Health care professionals are using it as a preventative.

    1. In other words: Vaccines are prevention, not cure, and cannot function as a cure.

      [This is, of course, assuming that it’s an honest vaccine.]

      This makes it difficult to know whether or not a vaccine saved your life (or prevented great bodily harm or disfigurement–but I’ll stick to ‘not dying’ here for brevity). How can you know that you would have caught the disease and died of it without the vaccine? It’s like speculating on an alternate history. (“Gee, if I’d walked out that door ten seconds later, I could have ended up marrying that gorgeous woman whom I didn’t bump into.”)

      One can look at statistics and say the smallpox vaccine has saved millions, even billions of lives, but you can’t know that yours would have been one of them.

        1. Since no one else answered this, I would like to give it a shot. When someone sticks a needle in your arm it would be easy enough for them to inject you with one of those Bill Gates microchips while they are taking your blood. Even if you saw them, by the time you realize what is going on – how would you stop them? Oops – too late – you didn’t think about it beforehand?

    1. Not to quibble, but there are many other blood banks where you can donate blood.
      I might have a problem with Red Cross, for obvious reasons, but would give blood to our local ban

      1. Local bank sounds like a good option. Not sure if local banks and hospitals could be set up to do an antibody test, but if so, that might be an answer.

        Seems like a lot of people don’t trust Red Cross any more.

    2. I wish the question cut off at “plasma.” Even Q thinks the Red Cross is evil. I’d consider donating directly to a hospital, but I wouldn’t even give a drop of saliva to those scammers over at the Red Cross.

          1. Considering the immediately previous discussion about phlebotomists and donating blood, your comment about “fresh blood” is exquisitely appropriate.

            And yes, Farcy needs to be replaced. $384K (and change) could be better spent… Bureaucratic rot seems to have set in in his case… “The Precautionary Principle” gone wild… (cf CAGW, UEA, and the “State Penn”…)…

    1. Yes but President Trump if FIGHTING for the US to Know about it. Going around the fed gov and the fake news to make sure we know to ask for it, esp. if complications. He is determined to make sure we know that treatment is out there and ask for it for ourselves and family if needed and he is PUSHING the FDA and fed gov to Make them move this issue to the forefront.

      similar to him persisting on the covering of your face

      He is Not going to know info that could help we the people and not tell us not matter what the fed gov employees are telling us. He is loyal to us, fighting for us again and again

      Birx looks rough…still sharply dressed and focused. Only reason I am mentioning it is to me it is a sign of how hard she is working on this and learning to run no Trump Time in the middle of a short, hard emergency. Appreciate them all.

    THAT statement from POTUS needs to be broadcast everywhere!
    DR. BIRX — the newest models still show 100,000 deaths BUT this can be lower IF people continue the social distancing, washing hands.
    POTUS steps in — stresses that Americans are doing a great job.
    Stupid reporter: trying for a GOTCHA on the coronavirus task force wearing masks. POTUS — maybe.

    President Trump – less hospital beds and less deaths – good! that is great news and President Trump applauds the American people on this issue. Models and projections can only forecast so accurately, can only take in so many variables (ex: flu cases dropped as we shut down/social distanced + accidents down as less driving) & we are doing a great job slowing the spread

  10. Oil Tariffs?

    If they don’t get along, yeah I would do that.
    Could also say we’re not going to use foreign oil, going to use our oil.
    We’re energy independent.
    Seeing 91 cents a gallon gas. Very inexpensive jet fuel
    Save tens of thousands of jobs
    Shipping oil to our SPR – in many case storing it for nothing
    Would use tariffs if we had to but don’t think will have to
    KSA/RU very dependent, very bad for them.

      Close the stores, and that hits even sooner. Though honestly what would happen is the closed stores would be looted by desperate, hungry people.

        POTUS sends condolences, while those two want there model numbers and real deaths nice and high. Sick.

  14. The charts used several days ago at the WuFlu briefs by Dr. Brix:
    COVID-19 projections assuming full social distancing through May 2020
    Are located at: *https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections, but have not been updated since 1 Apr.

    Does any QTreeper have a website where these projections are being updated daily with current data?

    With being able to update the charts and see progress, it kinda makes these charts a bit worthless.

            I’m not sick.
            My prescriptions had just expired…and it had been nearly 2 yrs since I had been in.

            Since I felt like I was going into a risky location…I wore a mask & gloves.

            No one there was wearing a mask.
            But they were giving me ‘thumbs up’ for doing it.👍

            When I was talking with my doctor, who is a conservative Christian…I called it the “ChiCom Virus”.
