Christian pastor who thought COVID-19 is just ‘mass hysteria’ is among the first in Virginia to die from virus
by Sky Palma





One of the first deaths in Virginia from Covid-19 was a 66-year-old Christian “musical evangelist” who fell ill while on a trip to New Orleans with his wife.


As the Friendly Atheist’s Bo Gardiner points out, Landon Spradlin had previously shared opinions that the pandemic was the result of “mass hysteria” from the media.

On March 13th, Spradlin shared a misleading meme that compared Covid-19 deaths to swine flu deaths and suggested the media is using the pandemic to hurt drumphf.


In the comments, Spradlin acknowledged that the outbreak is a “real issue,” but added that he believes “the media is pumping out fear and doing more harm than good.”


“It will come and it will go,” he wrote.

That same day, he shared a post from another pastor that told the story of a missionary in South Africa who “protected” himself from the bubonic plague with the “Spirit of God.”

“As long as I walk in the light of that law [of the Spirit of life], no germ will attach itself to me,” read a quote from the post.

Mysteriously Four Dead Onboard Cruise Ship Heading to Fort Lauderdale
by Marc Freeman & Lisa J. Huriash




Four passengers have died aboard a Holland America cruise ship that is making its way to Port Everglades, the liner announced Friday.

Holland America said “four older guests" died on the Zaandam, but didn’t say whether the new Covid-19 was the cause.

The ship has had dozens of people become sick, including some with respiratory symptoms.


On Thursday, several were tested for Covid-19 and two people tested positive.

The company didn’t say whether the two who tested positive were among the four passengers who died.

The ship was prohibited from disembarking in Chile and is now making its way to Fort Lauderdale, drawing the wrath of Broward’s county commission which is considering turning it away.

Cliff Kolber and his wife Doris, who left on their South America cruise in early March, said the captain on the Zaandam said at 11 a.m. that healthy people over age 70 will be evacuated to a second cruise line.

Nobody is allowed to contact guest services to ask about themselves, the couple said.

Also Friday, Miami-Dade County recorded its first death from Covid-19 as the total documented cases in Florida climbed to 2,900 infections.


The state says 488 people with Covid-19 are in the hospital.

Overall, deaths across Florida jumped from 29 to 35 overnight.


Miami-Dade has 763 residents who have tested positive for the disease, which is the most of any county in the state.

Broward is second with 614 cases.

The official death toll in Broward climbed to five, according to state data released Friday.

But the state figures are lagging behind reports of more local deaths.


A Fort Lauderdale assisted-living facility, Atria Willow Wood, has said six of its residents have died from Covid-19.



And South Florida’s first medical professional to die of the disease was a Broward doctor, bringing the county’s total to at least seven deaths.

Televangelist Jim Bakker sued for selling fake Covid-19 cure
by Caitlin O' Kane





Televangelist Jim Bakker is being sued by the state of Missouri for selling fake Covid-19 cures on his website.


On Monday, the Jim Bakker Show and six other companies were warned by the the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to stop selling unapproved products and treatments.

Bakker's website offered products like "Silver Sol Liquid," that claimed to be able to diagnose or cure the Covid-19 illness, COVID-19.


In a letter to the Jim Bakker Show, the FDA said the products are in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

"The Secretary of Health and Human Services ... has determined that a public health emergency exists nationwide as a result of confirmed cases of COVID-19. Therefore, FDA is taking urgent measures to protect consumers from certain products that, without approval or authorization by FDA, claim to mitigate, prevent, treat, diagnose or cure COVID 19 in people," the agency wrote.

The letter ordered Bakker to take immediate actions to correct the violations and gave him 48 hours to take the products off of his site.

King Felipe of Spain's Relative, 86, Becomes First Royal to Die from Covid-19
by Peter Mikelbank




Covid-19 has claimed its first royal, Spain’s Maria Teresa de Borbon-Parma.

The 86-year-old cousin to Spain’s King Felipe IV, who was dubbed the “Red Princess” because of her outspoken views, has died, according to her family.

The princess-activist’s passing was announced late Thursday by her brother Prince Sixto Enrique de Borbon, the Duke of Aranjuez.

“On this afternoon… our sister Maria Teresa de Borbon Parma and Borbon Busset, victim of the coronavirus COVID-19, died in Paris at the age of eighty-six,” he wrote.

A mass was organized in her honor in Madrid on Friday.

A longtime advocate of women’s rights and socialist ideas, Maria-Teresa, who never married, was born in Paris in 1933.

She was the second daughter of the Carlist pretender to Spain’s throne.

Following the forced exile of Spain’s King Alfonso, the Carlist movement claimed her father, Francisco Javiar de Borbon y Barganza the rightful heir to Spain’s crown, vying against the Alfonsists who eventually won favor and restoration from Franco’s regime.

Educated in France, a graduate and distinguished professor at Paris’ Sorbonne and an outspoken professor of Sociology at Madrid’s Complutense University, she held a variety of challenging ideological positions.

She was also an early supporter of CIVIS (the open university system linking schools in eight European nations) and was fascinated by Islam, becoming an expert in its study, particularly as it applied to evolving women’s rights in Arab nations.

Joe Diffie, ’90s Country Music Singer Dies of Covid-19 at 61
by Chris Williams





Joe Diffie, an icon to many country fans for his string of No. 1 hits in the 1990s, has died from complications related to Covid-19, a spokesperson revealed Sunday afternoon.


He was 61.

“Grammy-winning country music legend Joe Diffie died today, Sunday, March 29th, from complications of COVID-19,” the statement read simply.

“His family respects their privacy at this time.”

On Friday, Diffie became the first country singer to go public with a Covid-19 diagnosis.


“I am under the care of medical professionals and currently receiving treatment,” a statement attributed to him read.

“My family and I are asking for privacy at this time. We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic.”

Diffie, a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 25 years, is a household name to any country fan who came of age listening to the format in the 1990s.


Part of a neotraditionalist wave that thrived during that decade, he had more than 20 top 10 country hits, five of which went to No. 1 (“Home,” “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets,” “Third Rock from the Sun,” “Pickup Man” and “Bigger Than the Beatles”).


Two of his 13 albums went platinum and another two were certified gold.

Upon learning about his death, fans inevitably began posting a song that only went to No. 3 in 1993, but was destined to be his most revived song upon his death:



“Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die).”

Choir Practice Turns Fatal
by Richard Read





(MOUNT VERNON, Washington) —  With Covid-19 quickly spreading in Washington state in early March, leaders of the Skagit Valley Chorale debated whether to go ahead with weekly rehearsal.

The virus was already killing people in the Seattle area, about an hour’s drive to the south.

But Skagit County hadn’t reported any cases, schools and businesses remained open, and prohibitions on large gatherings had yet to be announced.

On March 6th, Adam Burdick, the choir’s conductor, informed the 121 members in an email that amid the “stress and strain of concerns about the virus,” practice would proceed as scheduled at Mount Vernon Presbyterian Church.

“I’m planning on being there this Tuesday March 10th, and hoping many of you will be, too,” he wrote.

Sixty singers showed up.


A greeter offered hand sanitizer at the door, and members refrained from the usual hugs and handshakes.

“It seemed like a normal rehearsal, except that choirs are huggy places,” Burdick recalled.

“We were making music and trying to keep a certain distance between each other.”

After 2½ hours, the singers parted ways at 9 p.m.


Nearly three weeks later, 45 have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or ill with the symptoms, at least three have been hospitalized, and two are dead.

The outbreak has stunned county health officials, who have concluded that the virus was almost certainly transmitted through the air from one or more people without symptoms.

“That’s all we can think of right now,” said Polly Dubbel, a county communicable disease and environmental health manager.

In interviews with the Los Angeles Times, eight people who were at the rehearsal said that nobody there was coughing or sneezing or appeared ill.

Everybody came with their own sheet music and avoided direct physical contact.

Some members helped set up or remove folding chairs.

A few helped themselves to mandarins that had been put out on a table in back.

Experts said the choir outbreak is consistent with a growing body of evidence that the virus can be transmitted through aerosols — particles smaller than 5 micrometers that can float in the air for minutes or longer.

The World Health Organization has downplayed the possibility of transmission in aerosols, stressing that the virus is spread through much larger “respiratory droplets,” which are emitted when an infected person coughs or sneezes and quickly fall to a surface.

But a study published March 17th in the New England Journal of Medicine found that when the virus was suspended in a mist under laboratory conditions it remained “viable and infectious” for three hours — though researchers have said that time period would probably be no more than a half-hour in real-world conditions.

One of the authors of that study, Jamie Lloyd-Smith, a UCLA infectious disease researcher, said it’s possible that the forceful breathing action of singing dispersed viral particles in the church room that were widely inhaled.

“One could imagine that really trying to project your voice would also project more droplets and aerosols,” he said.

With three-quarters of the choir members testing positive for the virus or showing symptoms of infection, the outbreak would be considered a “super-spreading event,” he said.

Linsey Marr, an environmental engineer at Virginia Tech and an expert on airborne transmission of viruses, said some people happen to be especially good at exhaling fine material, producing 1,000 times more than others.

Marr said that the choir outbreak should be seen as a powerful warning to the public.

“This may help people realize that, hey, we really need to be careful,” she said.

Democratic Lawmakers Call for Racial Data in Virus Testing
by Aaron Morrison of The Associated Press





Democratic lawmakers are calling out an apparent lack of racial data that they say is needed to monitor and address disparities in the national response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In a letter sent Friday to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Ayanna Pressley, both from Massachusetts, said comprehensive demographic data on people who are tested or treated for the virus that causes COVID-19 does not exist.

Over the weekend, cities with large black and nonwhite Hispanic populations emerged as new hot spots for the spread of the virus.

“Any attempt to contain COVID-19 in the United States will have to address its potential spread in low-income communities of color, first and foremost to protect the lives of people in those communities, but also to slow the spread of the virus in the country as a whole,” the lawmakers wrote to Azar.

“This lack of information will exacerbate existing health disparities and result in the loss of lives in vulnerable communities,” the letter warned.

Senators Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey and Representative Robin Kelly of Illinois also signed the letter.

It was shared exclusively with The Associated Press on Monday.

The lawmakers urged the HHS secretary to direct the department’s sub-agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration, to work with municipalities, states and private labs to ensure that racial and ethnic data are being collected.

Spokespeople for HHS and CDC did not immediately respond to the AP’s requests for comment on Monday.

“Decades of structural racism have prevented so many Black and Brown families from accessing quality health care, affordable housing, and financial security, and the COVID-19 crisis is blowing these disparities wide open," Warren said in a statement.

“We need the government to step up in a big way to ensure that communities of color have equal access to free testing and treatment. Congresswoman Pressley and I aren't going to let up until we see solid data and real progress."

According to the CDC’s website, the agency had run 4,760 COVID-19 tests, while U.S. public health labs had run 128,684 tests as of Monday.

The CDC data doesn't include tests processed by private labs, which have been ramping up their work.

U.S. cities with large black and brown populations such as Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee and New Orleans have emerged as hot spots of the COVID-19 outbreak.

New York City remained the national epicenter of the outbreak, reporting more than 36,000 confirmed cases and 790 deaths on Monday.

COVID-19 has caused a global pandemic that has sickened more than 775,000 and killed more than 36,000 globally.

It has crippled economies and forced restrictions on the movement of millions of people in an effort to stop the virus from spreading farther and overwhelming health care systems.

For most people, the virus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, that clear up in two to three weeks.

But for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.

In the letter, the U.S. lawmakers cited chronic health conditions and health care access disparities between white people and people of color “that experts have identified as risk factors for complications from COVID-19.”

According to the CDC, black and nonwhite Hispanic adults are more likely to be obese and are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes than non-Hispanic white adults are.

Asthma is more prevalent among nonwhite adults and children, the lawmakers noted.

People of color and immigrants are also less likely to be insured, leaving many without access to quality health care providers, the lawmakers said.

“Furthermore, a history of discrimination and marginalization has left some people of color distrustful of the medical system, making them less likely to seek out timely care,” they wrote in the letter.

On Friday, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported that about half of the state's deaths and total cases were in Milwaukee, a city of 600,000 residents that is more than a third black.

All eight people who have died from COVID-19 in Milwaukee County were black, and seven of them lived in the city.

“The severity of this disease in the African American community is a crisis within a crisis,” Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, a Democrat, said Friday.

S.O.S!!!
by Matthias Gafni and Joe Garoli


The captain of a nuclear aircraft carrier with more than 100 sailors infected with the virus pleaded Monday with U.S. Navy officials for resources to allow isolation of his entire crew and avoid possible deaths in a situation he described as quickly deteriorating.




DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY
uss THEODORE ROOSEVELT (CVN UNIT Ioozso Box 1
FPO AP 96632


 

30 Mar 20
Subj: REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE IN RESPONSE TO PANDEMIC





BLUF: If required the USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT would embark all assigned Sailors, set sail, and be ready to ?ght and beat any adversary that dares challenge the US or our allies.

The virus would certainly have an impact, but in combat we are willing to take certain risks that are not acceptable in peacetime.


However, we are not at war, and therefore cannot allow a single Sailor to perish as a result of this pandemic unnecessarily.

Decisive action is required now in order to comply with CDC and NAVADMIN 083/20 guidance and prevent tragic outcomes.


1. Problem Statement.

With the crew embarked, TR is unable to comply with CDC protocols or NAVADMIN 083/20 guidance.


Based on CDC guidelines and TR observations, the only effective method to preserve an individual?s health is total isolation for 14+ days in accordance with the NAVADMIN Individual hotel/barracks rooms with separate heads).

Due to a warship?s inherent limitations of space, we are not doing this.

The spread of the disease is ongoing and accelerating.


2. Inappropriate Focus on Testing. Testing has no direct in?uence on the spread of the COVID - l9 virus.

It merely con?rms the presence of the virus.


Due to the close quarters required on a warship and the current number of positive cases, every single Sailor, regardless of rank, on board the TR must be considered ?close contact? in accordance with the NAVADMIN.

Testing will only be useful as the ship returns to work a?er isolation or quarantine to con?rm the
effectiveness of the quarantine period.


Our focus now must be on quarantine and isolation in strict compliance with CDC and NAVADMIN guidance.

The COVID-19 test cannot prove a Sailor does not have the virus; it can only prove that a Sailor does.

As an illustration, of the ?rst 33 TR Sailors diagnosed with COVID-19, 21% (7 of those 33) infected Sailors were negative on a test, then subsequently presented with of COVID-19 infection within 1-3 days post-test.

Based on data since ?rst case, approximately 21% of the Sailors that tested negative and are currently moving into group restricted movement ashore are currently infected, will develop over the next several days, and will proceed to infect the remainder of their shore-based restricted group.

3. Inappropriate Quarantine and Isolation. With the exceptions of a handful of senior of?cer staterooms, none of the berthing onboard a warship is appropriate for quarantine or isolation.

Thousands of ?close contact? Sailors require quarantine in accordance with guidance.

TR has begun to move personnel off ship into shore-based group restricted movement locations.

Of the off ship locations currently available, only one complies with the NAVADMIN guidance.

Infected Sailors reside in these off ship locations.

Two Sailors have already tested positive in an open bay gymnasium equipped with cots.

Although marginally better than a warship, group quarantine sites are not a solution and are not in accordance with current guidance.

In order to stop the spread of the virus, the CDC and the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center both recommend individual quarantine.

They both recommend against group quarantine.

They recommend limited or no contact with other exposed individuals and no use of the same facilities or items exposed individuals have touched.

NAVADMIN 083/20 echoes this guidance.

The environment most conducive to spread of the disease is the environment the crew of the TR is in right now, both aboard ship and ashore:

a. Large amounts of Sailors in a confined space

b. Open, shared berthing

c. Shared restroom facilities

d. Con?ned, shared workspaces and computers

e. Shared messing for large numbers

f. Meals cooked food provided by exposed personnel

g. Mandatory watch/operational tasks demanding consistent close contact (food preparation, service cleaning, TFCC watches, unavoidable meetings to plan execute COVID response actions, etc.)

h. Movement about the ship requires consistent close contact with other exposed individuals (con?ned passageways, previously touched ladder railings/hatch levers/door knobs etc.)

4. Ineffectiveness of Current Strategy:

Based on current limitations (lack of appropriate quarantine and isolation facilities, inability to effectively achieve social distancing), TR has instituted limited measures to slow the spread of the disease.

We have moved a small percentage of the crew off ship, increased the frequency of thorough cleaning and attempted some social distancing.

The current strategy will only slow the Spread.

The current plan in execution on TR will not achieve virus eradication on any timeline.

5. Lessons Learned from the Diamond Princess:

From an epidemiological research article on the infection onboard Diamond Princess (the only comparable situation encountered thus far) (Roklov et a1.) titled outbreak on the Diamond Princess cruise ship:

estimating the epidemic potential and effectiveness of public health countenneasures:?

?Cruise ships carry a large number of people in con?ned spaces with relative homogeneous mixing.

On 3 February, 2020, an outbreak of COVID-19 on cruise ship Diamond Princess was reported following an index case on board around 21-25 January.

By 4 February, public health measures such as removal and isolation of ill passengers and quarantine of non-ill passengers were implemented.

By 20 February, 619 of 3,700 passengers and crew were tested positive.

We estimated that without any interventions within the time period of 21 January to 19 February, 2920 out of the 3700 would have been infected.

Isolation and quarantine therefore prevented 2307 cases.

We showed that an early evacuation of all passengers on 3 February would have been associated with 76 infected persons.?

(As opposed to 619)

The ?nal sentence of the abstract:

?Conclusions:

The cruise ship conditions clearly ampli?ed an already highly transmissible disease.

The public health measures prevented more than 2000 additional cases compared to no interventions.

However, evacuating all passengers and crew early on in the outbreak would have prevented many more passengers and crew from infection.?

The Diamond Princess was able to more effectively isolate people onboard than TR, due to a much higher percentage of individualized and compartmentalized accommodations onboard for paying customers.

Their measures still allowed hundreds of people to become infected.

best-case results, given the current environment, are likely to be much worse.

6. Proposed New Strategy:

There are two end states TR could achieve:

a. Maximize war?ghting readiness and capacity as quickly as possible.

No timeline necessary.

We go to war with the force we have and ?ght sick.

We never achieve a COVID-free TR.

There will be losses to the virus.

b. Achieve a TR.

Requires strict adherence to CDC guidelines and a methodical approach to achieve a clean ship.

This requires immediate and decisive action.

It will take time and money.

As war is not imminent, we recommend pursuing the peace time end state.

TR has two primary goals in order to achieve that end state:

a. Prevent unnecessary deaths, reduce the number of Sailors that contract and eliminate ?lture virus spread.

b. Regain and maximize war?ghting readiness and capacity as quickly as possible.

In order to achieve these goals, a clean ship is required.

Every Sailor onboard must be guaranteed virus-lice and the ship environment must be disinfected.

One infected Sailor introduced to the ship will spread the virus.


Off ship lodging in compliance with CDC and NAVADMIN guidance is required for over 4,000 Sailors to achieve a clean ship and crew.

7. Conclusion.

Decisive action is required.

Removing the majority of personnel from a deployed US. nuclear aircraft carrier and isolating them for two weeks may seem like an extraordinary measure.

A portion of the crew (approximately 10%) would have to stay aboard to run the reactor plant, sanitize the ship, ensure security, and provide for contingency response to emergencies.

This is a necessary risk.

It will enable the carrier and air wing to get back underway as quickly as possible while ensuring the health and safety of our Sailors.

Keeping over 4,000 young men and women on board the TR is an unnecessary risk and breaks faith with those Sailors entrusted to our care.

There are challenges associated with securing individualized lodging for our crew.

This will require a political solution but it is the right thing to do.

We are not at war.

Sailors do not need to die.

If we do not act now, we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset our Sailors.

Request all available resources to ?nd NAVADMIN and CDC compliant quarantine rooms for my entire crew as soon as possible.

Anyone remember that cruise ship where 4 passengers mysteriously died?



That ship is still out-to-sea.


Now the passengers have become sick.


Florida Governor DeSantis' response:

"We cannot afford to have people who are not even Floridians dumped into South Florida using up those valuable resources."

From Twitter, a letter from Democratic Senators & Representatives dated March 2017.


March 2017:
According to Nico Pitney,  @SenWarren, @PattyMurray and 3 House Dems write HHS Secretary Tom Price to raise concerns about the nation’s ability to respond to infectious disease threats. No response received.


An excerpt:


We write regarding a report earlier this month about "a surge in human infections of a deadly bird flu in China [that] is prompting increasing concern among health officials around the world...[and that] poses the greatest risk of a pandemic threat if it evolves to spread readily from human to human."

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would lead the federal government response to a pandemic flu.

Before leaving the CDC in January 2017, the former Director, Dr. Thomas Frieden, stated his concerns about such a pandemic, noting that the greatest health threat we face is "always for an influenza pandemic,"  and that "If the resistant organisms emerge in one part of the world, they will inevitably come to other parts of the world... [A] pragmatic approach will rely on proven programs that protect Americans."
