BBC reports that 120 Candidate Vaccines are under development and a few have started Phase 1 Trials.

The US has 124k+ of the deaths and Latin America 100k+ of the deaths.

ln an anti-lRI diatribe, a BBC correspondent said that between sanctions and corruption, lRl cannot "afford" another lockdown.  Said in such a way to imply that the leadership is willing to murder its own people. Comment: lt was disgusting. Added: According to Iran Daily, a spike in C-19 deaths one-day-totaled 133.

Iran lost 198k of it's best people during 8 YEARS of war with Iraq (198k Iranians martyred). Number of death in US is 124K within 6 months. We can have a better understanding of covid 19 if we compare different number together.

NHK: Tokyo had a spike of 55 cases. Most were in their 20s and 30s.

Question for @starlight and @Liggel   l am of course guesstimating, but does this observation suggest that with C-19 older and health issues patients are most susceptible, yet with younger and healthier the disease needs more time to "fester" before it asserts itself?

This is the point that many people who question the danger of CV19 don't get, but it's expressed in very sharp focus here:

Mr Abbott’s executive order comes a day after he banned elective medical procedures to free up beds to handle a wave of Covid-19 patients and marks a reversal for the Texas governor, who had been one of the most aggressive in allowing reopenings of restaurants and other businesses.

Just because it is older people who get CV19 does not mean to say that others don't get affected, because if CV19 sufferers clog up the health system, it pretty much directly affects everyone else.

Another dude who can't face up to the reality of CV19, because he's been brainwashed into believing in the American constitution. Just goes to show that removing religion doesn't suddenly make people 'rational'.

Ayatollah Modarresi calls on Coronavirus patients to donate blood plasma

Quote

Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad-Taqi al-al-Modarresi, an Iraqi source of emulation, ‎invited the Iraqi people and government to help the country’s medical healthcare ‎workers to fight the Coronavirus and asked those who have overcome the virus to ‎donate their blood plasma to help treat the sick.‎
Ayatollah al-Modarresi added, “Unlike many countries in the world, the infrastructure of ‎the Iraqi medical system is designed to deal with normal viruses, and we must go to ‎war against this virus and other diseases by strengthening and improving the country’s ‎medical and treatment system.”‎

Ayatollah al-Modarresi concluded, “The cultural progress of a country is measured by ‎the support of various popular groups in government. If people don’t support the ‎government, the government will be weakened. Although the government is the main ‎institution in the country, this doesn’t mean that the government is alone. People must ‎also be active in solving problems.”‎

But it will be an uphill battle persuading white townsfolk to abide by the ordinance. Brad Harper, a reporter with the Montgomery Advertiser, says he is struck whenever he goes into a Target or Walmart that almost all white shoppers go unmasked while black shoppers have their faces covered.

A new strain of flu which has the potential to become pandemic has been identified in China by scientists. 

It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say. 

The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak. 

They say it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans - and needs close monitoring. 

As it's new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus.

This is unintelligible to me. I think I might need captions for each image. Beginning to wonder if I am culturally deprived.

From a DeutscheWelle  C0VlD-19 special l found this correlating information about C-19 attacking several organs:

https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-kidney-damage-caused-by-covid19

Thank you. The article mentions that people with high blood pressure should continue to take their medication for that. However, they should avoid Ibuprofen and Naproxen since those can affect the kidneys.

I think you're fine. Reject the implications of the unintelligible. None is meant to gain your understanding. Right now nothing has to make sense, just incite rage.

Our PM just said Immigrants are more Canadian than Canadians. It really makes you wonder how in tune the leader of a country really is. July 1st is always Immigrants swear in, become Canadians day. This year you can swear in from anywhere in the world with internet without ever having seen Canada.
