W.H.O. Demands Audits Of Chinese Labs, Admits First Cases Didn't Come From Huanan Wet


The World Health Organization (WHO) is demanding that “audits” be conducted of Chinese labs in the vicinity of where the first cases of SARS-CoV-2 were identified — a development that comes at approximately the same time that the organization admitted that the first cluster of cases did not come from a nearby wet market in Wuhan.

WHO chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a closed-door meeting on Friday that one of the top priorities for the next phase of the investigation includes “audits of relevant laboratories and research institutions operating in the area of the initial human cases identified in December 2019.”

He emphasized studying “geographic areas with the earliest indication of circulation of Sars CoV-2,” including studies of more animal markets.

The Washington Post reported this week that WHO, in response to questions from the newspaper, will change a joint report with China on the origins of the pandemic to “clarify that the first family cluster was not linked to the Huanan seafood market in Wuhan.”

In May, The Wall Street Journal reported that three researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) — China’s only Biosafety level-4 laboratory — were hospitalized in November 2019 with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report.

“The details of the reporting go beyond a State Department fact sheet, issued during the final days of the Trump administration, which said that several researchers at the lab, a center for the study of coronaviruses and other pathogens, became sick in autumn 2019 ‘with symptoms consistent with both Covid-19 and common seasonal illness,’” The Wall Street Journal reported. “The disclosure of the number of researchers, the timing of their illnesses and their hospital visits come on the eve of a meeting of the World Health Organization’s decision-making body, which is expected to discuss the next phase of an investigation into Covid-19’s origins.”

The latest news comes as the Biden administration now acknowledges the possibility that the pandemic originated from a Chinese lab is now at least as likely as the theory that it originated in nature.

David Asher, who led the Trump administration’s investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, said in an interview back in late March that biostatisticians from the U.S. government calculated that the odds of the coronavirus evolving naturally to be “one-in-13 billion.”

“We were finding that despite the claims of our scientific community, including the National Institutes of Health and Dr. Fauci’s NIAID organization, that there was almost no evidence that supported a natural, zoonotic, you know, evolution, or source of COVID-19,” Asher said. ‘And we said, you know, okay, let’s look at the both sources of evidence, natural zoonosis, as they call it, you know, it came out of nature, or did it come out of a lab, and the data disproportionately stacked up as we investigated that it was coming out of a lab or some supernatural source.”

Pandemic of unvaccinated rages with delta’s spread; cases up in all 50 states


With the rapid rise of the highly transmissible delta variant and national vaccination efforts largely stalled, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage among the unvaccinated in the US—and things are looking grim.

Cases of COVID-19 are rising in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Right now, the states with the highest averages for daily new cases per 100,000 people are Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Louisiana, and Nevada, which all have below-average vaccination rates. Nationwide, average daily cases are up 140 percent over the past two weeks. Hospitalizations and deaths, which lag behind increases in cases by weeks, are also up 34 percent and 33 percent, respectively.

Relative to the rest of the pandemic, the nationwide numbers of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are low—they're matching or are below numbers seen back in April of 2020. But rates of cases among the unvaccinated in some places rival those seen at the heights of the pandemic. And areas with low vaccination coverage are seeing surges.

Missouri—with just 40 percent of its population fully vaccinated—is seeing daily new case rates as high as those seen last October, at the foot of the winter peak. And some hot spots in the state are setting records. In the southwestern county of Taney, for instance, the seven-day average for daily new cases is higher now than at any point previously, with an average of 55 new cases per day. The previous highest average was 45 new cases per day, which the county hit on November 22 and again on December 10. Across the border in Arkansas, Baxter county set a record last week for its highest average of daily new cases, which was 42 new cases per day. That surpassed its previous record of 32, set in early January. Only 33 percent of Baxter county's population is fully vaccinated.

These case surges are translating to increases in hospitalizations. In Baxter, hospitalizations are up 340 percent over the last two weeks. In southwestern Missouri, hospitals have become overwhelmed, with intensive care units hitting capacity, ventilators running low, and hospitals reporting nursing shortages. Last week, Missouri's Springfield-Greene County Health Department requested state funding to set up a field hospital to help handle the surge in patients with severe COVID-19 cases.

Covid-19: India excess deaths cross four million, says study

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused excess deaths in India to cross more than four million, a new study has found.

Excess deaths are a measure of how many more people are dying than would be expected compared to the previous few years.

Although it is difficult to say how many of these deaths have been caused by Covid-19, they are a measure of the overall impact of the pandemic.

India has officially recorded more than 414,000 Covid-19 deaths so far.

The country is one of the few major economies without an estimate of excess deaths during the pandemic.

Researchers from the US-based Center for Global Development used three different data sources to estimate India's excess all-cause mortality during the pandemic until 21 June.

They extrapolated death registrations from seven states, accounting for half of India's population. India conducts yearly mortality surveys but has only published numbers up to 2019.

Second, the researchers applied international estimates of age-specific infection fatality rates - the number of people that die from the virus - to data from two countrywide antibody tests, also called sero surveys.

I kinda knew India's situation dire when hundreds of bodies washed ashore in the Ganges, and the Authorities seemed unfazed.

India's COVID-19 death toll could be 10X the official count, research suggests
$1:
India's excess deaths during the pandemic could be a staggering 10 times the official COVID-19 toll, likely making it modern India's worst human tragedy, according to the most comprehensive research yet on the ravages of the virus in the South Asian country.

Most experts believe India's official toll of more than 414,000 dead is a vast undercount, but the government has dismissed those concerns as exaggerated and misleading.

The difficulty of vaccinating the world against COVID-19 is enormous
The report released Tuesday estimated excess deaths — the gap between those recorded and those that would have been expected — to be 3.4 million to 4.7 million between January 2020 and June 2021. It said an accurate figure may "prove elusive" but the true death toll "is likely to be an order of magnitude greater than the official count."

The report was published by Arvind Subramanian, the Indian government's former chief economic adviser, and two other researchers at the Center for Global Development, a nonprofit think tank based in Washington, and Harvard University.

It said the count could have missed deaths that occurred in overwhelmed hospitals or while health care was disrupted, particularly during the devastating virus surge earlier this year.
