“Obviously they’ve had considerable time to consider their options to this point in time,†she said.

 

“Can I state quite stridently that we will be charging overseas visitors rather than charging NSW residents …

Talking to my Brother in law who lives in Wodonga, works in Albury about the difficulties of getting across the border.

First day was 1 hour and twenty minutes, but today was only about 40 minutes.

He made the valid point that the NSW government has been warning about the hard closure of the border for at least the last ten days.

So why on earth did they not think to put a few of the 8 billion Public servants to work on designing a permit system before the lockdown occurred??

The sort of disdain that the city based governments have for regional areas was amply demonstrated by the decision to put large concrete barriers at both sides of some bridges to stop the crossings.

Too bad if people on one side needed ambulance or fire access.

To save themselves the trouble of having to monitor these "remote" bridge crossings, they sentenced locals to 200 km round trips for something that would normally take 15 kms.

Gladys not endearing herself to the locals.

The World Health Organization published new guidance Thursday, saying it can’t rule out the possibility that the coronavirus can be transmitted through air particles in closed spaces indoors, including in gyms and restaurants.

 

The WHO previously acknowledged that the virus may become airborne in certain environments, such as during “medical procedures that generate aerosols.†The new guidance recognizes some research that suggests the virus may be able to spread through particles in the air in “indoor crowded spaces.†It cited “choir practice, in restaurants or in fitness classes†as possible areas of airborne transmission.

Australia's first COVID-19 treatment option, Remdesivir, has been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) for people hospitalised with severe cases.

From Medical Express

The news about remdesivir, the investigational anti-viral drug that has shown early promise in the fight against COVID-19, keeps getting better.

This week researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Gilead Sciences reported that remdesivir potently inhibited SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, in human lung cell cultures and that it improved lung function in mice infected with the virus.

 

These preclinical findings help explain the clinical effect the drug has had in treating COVID-19 patients. Remdesivir has been given to patients hospitalized with COVID-19 on a compassionate use basis since late January and through clinical trials since February.

 

In April, a preliminary report from the multicenter Adaptive COVID-19 Treatment Trial (which included VUMC) suggested that patients who received the drug recovered more quickly.

 

"All of the results with remdesivir have been very encouraging, even more so than we would have hoped, but it is still investigational, so it was important to directly demonstrate its activity against SARS-CoV-2 in the lab and in an animal model of disease," said VUMC's Andrea Pruijssers, Ph.D.

 

This of course compares favourble with the odium piled onto Hydroxychloroquine.

HCQ's biggest problem was not one of medical efficacy, but the fact that it is out of patent, cheap , and won't make much money for big pharma.

From Global research

 

There is an ongoing battle to suppress Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), a cheap and effective drug for the treatment of Covid-19. The campaign against HCQ is carried out through slanderous political statements, media smears, not to mention an authoritative peer reviewed “evaluation†published on May 22nd by The Lancet, which was based on fake figures and test trials.

 

The study was allegedly based on data analysis of 96,032 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 between Dec 20, 2019, and April 14, 2020 from 671 hospitals Worldwide. The database had been fabricated. The objective was to kill the Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) cure on behalf of Big Pharma.

 

While The Lancet article was retracted, the media casually blamed “a tiny US based company†named Surgisphere whose employees included “a sci-fi writer and an adult content model†for spreading “flawed data†(Guardian). This Chicago based outfit was accused of having misled both the WHO and national governments, inciting them to ban HCQ. None of those trial tests actually took place.

While the blame was placed on Surgisphere, the unspoken truth (which neither the scientific community nor the media have acknowledged) is that the study was coordinated by Harvard professor Mandeep Mehra under the auspices of Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) which is a partner of the Harvard Medical School.

 

When the scam was revealed, Dr. Mandeep Mehra who holds the Harvey Distinguished Chair of Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital apologized:

But that “truly sorry†note was just the tip of the iceberg. Why?

 

Studies on Gilead Science’s Remdesivir and Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) Were Conducted Simultaneously by Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH)

 

While The Lancet report (May 22, 2020) coordinated by Dr. Mandeep Mehra was intended “to kill†the legitimacy of HCQ as a cure of Covid-19, another important (related) study was being carried out (concurrently) at BWH pertaining to Remdesivir on behalf of Gilead Sciences Inc. Dr. Francisco Marty, a specialist in Infectious Disease and Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School was entrusted with coordination of the clinical trial tests of the antiviral medication Remdesivir under Brigham’s contract with Gilead Sciences Inc:Brigham and Women’s Hospital began enrolling patients in two clinical trials for Gilead’s antiviral medication remdesivir. The Brigham is one of multiple clinical trial sites for a Gilead-initiated study of the drug in 600 participants with moderate coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and a Gilead-initiated study of 400 participants with severe COVID-19.

 

… If the results are promising, this could lead to FDA approval, and if they aren’t, it gives us critical information in the fight against COVID-19 and allows us to move on to other therapies.â€

 

While Dr. Mandeep Mehra was not directly involved in the Gilead Remdesevir BWH study under the supervision of his colleague Dr. Francisco Marty, he nonetheless had contacts with Gilead Sciences Inc: “He participated in a conference sponsored by Gilead in early April 2020 as part of the Covid-19 debate†(France Soir, May 23, 2020)

 

What was the intent of his (failed) study? To undermine the legitimacy of Hydroxychloroquine?

 

According to France Soir, in a report published after The Lancet Retraction:

 

The often evasive answers produced by Dr Mandeep R. Mehra, … professor at Harvard Medical School, did not produce confidence, fueling doubt instead about the integrity of this retrospective study and its results. (France Soir, June 5, 2020)

 

Was Dr. Mandeep Mehra in conflict of interest? (That is a matter for BWH and the Harvard Medical School to decide upon).

 

The article is too long for me to reproduce it all, but it goes on to highlight the incestuous relationships between Gilead and the main players, as well as the fact that some medical scientists have cast doubts on the "compassionate use of Remdesivir", which is a way of bypassing the FDA approvakl process.

I love a good conspiracy theory, and although it all may be perfectly innocent and merely a series of fortuitous coincidences, there is something smelly here.

The thing that really annoys me is how shallow the main stream reporting has come to be. How come no one in the MSM has even bothered to delve deeper than look at the press releases given out by the main players?

I wonder just how many reporters there are. Most articles are just cut and paste from other publications or drivel sent from PR organisations. Real live reporters doing detailed research are few and far between.

 

COVID-19 doesn't seem to care one way or the other. Good luck Victoria.

 

Cheers

Real reporters are very important but not to the mainstream media.

You are right about the cut-paste mentality

They save money by plagiarism

 

You know a real reporter when their outlet is attacked by the politicians and the MSM

The MSM doesn't tolerate dissent from the anointed line

 

There are some inciteful blogs out there

A Sydney woman in her 20s who was at the hotel on July 3

A man in his 30s who had dinner on July 3

 

NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant said seven new cases had been identified this morning, but two of those people acquired their infections in Victoria and both self-isolated on returning to NSW.

 

"ou can see that when we have some cases that were contacts of contacts of cases, you can see how rapidly Covid-19 can spread, if we do not at promptly," she said.
