The Iowa Premium Beef plant in Tama, Iowa, paused operations earlier this year after 338 of its workers tested positive for COVID-19.
… Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said the criticism was unwarranted.
“This was a very nasty, personal, vindictive, unnecessary, misguided attack by Paul Keating,” he said.
“Many people are left wondering what is Paul Keating’s motives behind this nasty, unnecessary attack and I have to say, we as a government value of the independence of the Reserve Bank when it comes to monetary policy.”[…]
Comment by tonytran2015: Anyone following the news would have asked what was going on when the State Premier accepted then reneged (on live TV) on that acceptance of Federal’s army personnels at the beginning of the hotel quarantine saga. This looks like a reincarnation of the Red Shirt scandal but with the addition of real death numbers.
Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos does not know who suggested and approved the use of private security guards in hotel quarantine, the inquiry into the state’s bungled program has heard.
- Ms Mikakos says she first learned private security was being used in May when an outbreak at the Rydges Hotel on Swanston Street emerged
- She says in future she would not support the use of private security guards in such programs
- Her understanding was hotel quarantine was “a multi-agency response with shared responsibility” […]
As we pursue this bright future, we must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world: China.
In the earliest days of the virus, China locked down travel domestically while allowing flights to leave China and infect the world. China condemned my travel ban on their country, even as they cancelled domestic flights and locked citizens in their homes.
The Chinese government and the World Health Organization — which is virtually controlled by China — falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission. Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease.
The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions.
In addition, every year, China dumps millions and millions of tons of plastic and trash into the oceans, overfishes other countries’ waters, destroys vast swaths of coral reef, and emits more toxic mercury into the atmosphere than any country anywhere in the world. China’s carbon emissions are nearly twice what the U.S. has, and it’s rising fast. By contrast, after I withdrew from the one-sided Paris Climate Accord, last year America reduced its carbon emissions by more than any country in the agreement….
…Professor Berger said: “We were truly puzzled by our discovery, and its implications. So here we have LA, a molecule which is at the centre of those functions that go haywire in COVID-19 patients, with terrible consequences. And the virus that is causing all this chaos, according to our data, grabs and holds on to exactly this molecule – basically disarming much of the body’s defences.”…
The COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) and Other Acts Amendment Bill passed the lower house of Victoria’s Parliament on Friday, but the retired judges and QCs warn it would be “unprecedented, excessive and open to abuse”.
The laws would allow the Andrews government to make anyone an authorised officer with the power to arrest anyone with COVID-19, or their close contacts, whom the authorised officer reasonably believes “is likely” to breach an emergency direction.
…By the time she got off the flight in Hanoi 10 hours later, 15 other people who had been on the plane with her were infected, researchers reported Friday.
This story is one of two published Friday demonstrating how coronavirus can spread on airline flights, and suggesting that simply spacing people out a little will not fully protect them…
… But while the number of infections has climbed steadily for two months, something strange is happening with the UK’s COVID-19 death toll.
The number of death certificates issued which mention COVID-19 has been falling for 20 straight weeks, according to UK Government statistics.…
Comment by tonytran2015: So Victoria has set up a massive quarantine program with no real purpose !
- Annaliese van Dieman said a risk assessment had been done on anyone who left hotel quarantine while waiting for a test result
- She said some people were allowed to leave quarantine even if they were COVID positive at the end of their stay
- Dr van Dieman said the focus of the program was on logistics rather than health
Dr. Fauci Backed Funding for Controversial Wuhan Lab With Millions of U.S. Dollars For Risky Coronavirus Research
Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the coronavirus task force, had previously backed funding for a controversial lab in Wuhan, China, that has been studying the coronavirus in bats, reports said.
Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases had shelled out a total of $7.4 million to the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab — which has become the focus of theories about the origin of COVID-19, according to Newsweek.
The National Institutes of Health, which oversees the NIAID, shut down all funding to the lab last week.
“At this time, NIH does not believe that the current project outcomes align with the program goals and agency priorities,” a deputy director at the agency wrote in a letter obtained by Politico.
There is “increasing confidence” among officials in the Trump administration that the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab is the original site of the virus. A report by Fox Newssaid embassy officials warned in January 2018 about inadequate safety there.
The NIH defended its funding of the lab in a statement to Newsweek.
“Most emerging human viruses come from wildlife, and these represent a significant threat to public health and biosecurity in the US and globally,” the statement read.
“Scientific research indicates that there is no evidence that suggests the virus was created in a laboratory.” source
And that’s Dr.Fauci’s story and he is sticking to it. Many of us have connected the dots and realize that Fauci is lying to stay out of jail.
I think that jail would be perfect for the doctor, considering that he is an international terrorist.
