COVID-19 Death Toll Hits 160,000

261,757 deaths.

+1,998 new deaths yesterday. +1,427 new deaths so far today.

CBS News:

“The United States reported more than 195,000 COVID-19 cases on Friday — a new daily high and the ninth time this month a record has been set for new confirmed infections, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University. Hospitalizations topped 82,000 Friday, and there have been 1,300 deaths a day since Sunday.   

Across the nation, more and more cities, counties and states are clamping down, issuing restrictions on restaurants and gyms and implementing curfews in a desperate effort to curb the surge, Tom Hanson reports for “CBS This Morning: Saturday.” …

As expected, COVID-19 is getting bad again now that we are in actual flu season. It has been roughly two months since our last update when the death toll crossed 200,000.

There is, I believe, a vaccine or two available now.

Reuters:

“FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Moderna will charge governments between $25 and $37 per dose of its COVID-19 vaccine candidate, depending on the amount ordered, Chief Executive Stephane Bancel told German weekly Welt am Sonntag (WamS).

“Our vaccine therefore costs about the same as a flu shot, which is between $10 and $50,” he was quoted as saying.

On Monday, an EU official involved in the talks said the European Commission wanted to reach a deal with Moderna for the supply of millions of doses of its vaccine candidate for a price below $25 per dose. …”

It could become available to the public late next month.

USA Today:

“There were 10 severe cases of COVID-19 in the trial, with nine of them occurring in the placebo group. According to the news release, the candidate vaccine was 94% effective in adults over 65 but maintained efficacy across gender, race and ethnicity demographics.

About 25 million doses may become available for U.S. use in December, 30 million in January and 35 million more in February and March, according to information presented to the National Academy of Medicine this week. Globally, Pfizer has estimated it could have 50 million doses available by year’s end. …”

I guess we will see what happens.

I presume the anti-vaxxers and the people who are convinced COVID-19 is a conspiracy will be making a lot of noise about it. We will see if the military comes door to door and forces people to take the vaccine which is a theory that I have seen on some libertarian websites. The people who get flu shots every year anyway will take the vaccine and move on with their lives. My best guess is that COVID-19 will get worse before it gets better and it will rapidly get better once the vaccine becomes available.

Note: Personally, I have been fine this whole year. In case you are wondering, I have no plans to take the vaccine.

  1. The Russian and Cuban vaccines that the U.S. will not allow us to get are probably safer than the Oxford monkey virus based vaccine, and especially, the Pfizerr and Moderna vaccines using unproven new messenger RNA technology. China is exporting its vaccine, and says it doesn’t need any itself, since good public hygiene (including mask wearing and social distancing) practiced by a disciplined people was sufficient to extinguish the disease in China.

    • mRNA vaccines are particularly dangerous. That hasn’t stopped murderous freaks like Bill Gates calling for everyone to get those shots. Studies where 80-100% of test subjects got sick on mRNA vaccines are a feature, not a bug, to elites wanting 90% of the Earth’s population gone. They want us gone to save the planet, of course. I’d rather save us and get rid of them.

      In the US, vaxx manufacturers don’t worry about liability, because they socialized those costs. The US gummint operates a fund for victims of vaxx mishaps for Big Pharma. Think any of them worry about side effects or deaths happening to you and yours? The self-appointed shepherds want to seriously cull the flock.

      • Some of the elites will get the conventional vaccines from Russia, etc. for themselves, while the masses are jabbed with mRNA experimental vaccines.

        • A lot of lefties say they will gladly take the mRNA vaccines. The real Americans I know aren’t having any part of it. I almost hope it is some sort of population culling scheme. That would be too good to be true, though.

    • Sorry you were down earlier today, HW. I wanted to post this, in any event.

      “Top pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson told government officials in Alberta during a zoom conference call that the current coronavirus crisis is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”
      Hodkinson’s comments were made during a discussion involving the Community and Public Services Committee and the clip was subsequently uploaded to YouTube.
      https://www.bitchute.com/video/hWPjDdXOWkOo/
      Noting that he was also an expert in virology, Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures COVID tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.”
      “There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public,” said Hodkinson.
      The doctor said that nothing could be done to stop the spread of the virus besides protecting older more vulnerable people and that the whole situation represented “politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game.”

      ““Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signalling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people – I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense – seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying without any knowledge base to put the mask on their face.”
      The doctor also slammed the unreliability of PCR tests, noting that “positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection,” and that all testing should stop because the false numbers are “driving public hysteria.”
      Hodkinson said that the risk of death in the province of Alberta for people under the age of 65 was “one in three hundred thousand,” and that it was simply “outrageous” to shut down society for what the doctor said “was just another bad flu.”

      JUST ANOTHER BAD FLU. Yup. Like I said, way back in MARCH.

  2. I don’t know if I’ll take the vaccine but I do get the flu shot every year and my son and I have already had ours this year. His school has now gone remote until December. Yes, the current surge has long been expected.

      • It’s pretty obvious. The US attacked China with a biological weapon. The virus got out. The west weighed down with low IQ low conscientious Dindu and Muzzie minorities collapsed as civil societies and hey Presto, well (((connected))) pharmacological institutes roll out several vaccines after the defeat of an awkward political figure. Vaccines ought to be called Negev Serum or Pfiffel NTech or Loxfeud vaccine. I’ve had Covid19 already so I’m not that rushed about getting a jab.

    • I don’t think every country on earth would go along with it if it was just a hoax. Why would the establishment create a hoax that shuts down immigration and the free flow of people? Why would the system want millions of white men unemployed with time on their hands to think about life and politics instead of working 60 hour weeks? Why would the 1% support something that eats into their profits?

      Climate Change is the perfect new-age cult, they don’t need a second one.

    • Little know fact. Branch Davidians. Founded by a Jew. Half the people in the Davidian compound were blacks. FBI did a solid, what the fuck was Tim McVeigh thinking taking revenge for the law roasting a compound of negrophile and negro seventh day adventists?

    “The US dominated the Twentieth Century for four principal reasons. Its manufacturing capability far exceeded anyone else’s; perhaps the most dramatic illustration was its stunning production in the Second World War when it, for example, manufactured 300k aircraft, twice as much as the next place country. Its inventive capability was also immense: from airplanes to electricity transmission to assembly lines the USA was the inventor and, equally important, the adaptor of numerous world-changing innovations. Thirdly, unlike most of the non-Anglosphere world, it was politically stable: even under the strain of the Great Depression its political system held. Finally the “American Dream” had sufficient reality to be attractive. But what is left today of these four? Much (most?) of its manufacturing has been outsourced to China. What remains of American ingenuity? A buttonless iPhone is not at the same level as the Apple 1. As to political stability, whoever sits in the White House at the end of Jan 2021 will be regarded as an interloper by half the population; that will have consequences on the street. The American dream that your children will be better off, by every measurement, than you were has collapsed: the children, crushed by unpayable debt and zero-hour contracts, hide in your basement. And as it goes with the West’s leader, so, ceteris paribus, it goes with the other Western countries. The outlook is poor, unstable and desperate. How did it happen? There are many reasons but the principals are the usual pair: wars and spending. Too much war: during its rise to power, wars were good for the West but it doesn’t win them any more and it hasn’t lost the habit. Too much spending leading to too much debt: debt for investment is worthwhile but debt for consumption is not. It transpires that “history” has in fact resumed its movement. In short, the West has lost its mojo.” “Mojo” or “magic” is an appropriate word: there certainly was a reality to Western power and authority but there was also a magical element because a significant amount of the West’s power rested on the conviction of the conquered and the awed that it could not be beaten. There has been a loss of competence, an essential component of the mojo. I recommend Stephen Walt’s essay The Death of American Competence. As he rightly points out, one of the pillars of American power was “an image of the US as a place where people knew how to set ambitious goals and bring them successfully to fruition.” He speculates on the reasons for the decline, suggests several, but he knows it has been a long development: Over the past 25 years, however, the US has done a remarkable job of squandering that invaluable reputation for responsible leadership and basic competence. The COVID-19 outbreak provides a sharp demonstration of the loss of mojo. In what will probably be remembered as one of the most ironic events of the Twenty-first Century, the GHS Index in Oct 2019 assessed the countries of the world on their preparedness for an epidemic or pandemic. It ranked the USA and the UK as the two best prepared countries: the former with a score of 83.5/100 and the latter at 77.9/100. The world average was calculated to be 40.2/100. I think it is a pretty safe bet that no one a year later would say that either handled COVID-19 well: some might say that the two were among the worst in the world. According to at least one ranking, the USA was first and the UK fifth in deaths as of Nov 14….”

    • If you exclude the black and Latino fatalities from Covid19 white America was barely touched by Covid19. The rampant British Black fatalities along with Muslim fatalities also skew the UK data.

    • The most “traditional” vaccination would be skin inoculation for Variola (smallpox), but the principle is still the same. Incidentally, many countries including Russia still vaccinate for smallpox. It still exists in the lab and if it ever gets out….

      • Vaccine is derived from the Latin word cow. Inoculation is derived from the word for grafting, in horticulture. Inocullation is more like having a deliberate Covid19 party at the height of summer to avoid contraction in Autumn or Winter. Live virus contracted at peak health in warm hot weather when the system is good shape.

        Vaccination is not the same as Inocullation. Vaccination often involves Zoonotic cultures. Careful playing doctor.

        • Re: “Vaccine is derived from the Latin word cow”:

          Yes, from vacca, distantly. Vaccinia is the Latin/medical/veterinary term for tjhe cow disease for which Jenner’s procedure of inoculation with vaccinia to create immunity to smallpox was directly named.

          He used it as an adjective, and others soon used it as a noun.

          Re: “Inocullation is more like having a deliberate Covid19 party at the height of summer to avoid contraction in Autumn or Winter. Live virus contracted at peak health in warm hot weather when the system is good shape (…) Careful playing doctor”:

          Be careful indeed. Be careful giving implied recommendation to self-“inoculate” with coronavirus, because some readers might follow it.

          • “Variolation” was inoculation/vaccination with a very low dose of a less virulent (hopefully) strain of Variola, the smallpox virus itself. The dose had to be tailored to the individual, to avoid a full-blown case of smallpox. Primum non nocere.

    • Could this be what you mean? “(T)his technology is different, and its method of working means it is no longer necessary to use mass vaccination. The whole point of why mRNA vaccines are more effective than our current vaccine technologies, per its proponents, is that it precisely targets the protein-production part of your DNA’s normal life cycle. This improves the response that an individual’s immune system will have when fighting a virus. It can be targeted socially in a similar way. If the majority of people who catch Covid-19 are asymptomatic, then it’s ridiculous to give them a vaccine. Because this vaccine protects individuals in their response, there is no good reason why everybody in our society should be forced to take it. It is used to increase specific protein production in someone who’s at severe risk. That’s how a medicine works normally. You don’t take HIV medication if you don’t have HIV. You shouldn’t be taking cancer drugs unless you have cancer. And you shouldn’t need to change your DNA’s production of specific proteins unless it’s personally necessary to do so. The biggest lie being told to the people of the world is that everybody needs to take this vaccine. And ironically, the experimental mRNA technology that they’re desperate to use makes mass vaccination unnecessary….” From an excellent new article on big pharma: https://niqnaq.wordpress.com/2020/11/22/big-pharma-as-one-would-assume-is-less-than-trustworthy/

      • The vaccine should be administered on those over 50, and required for those over 65. If others want it make enough to match demand. It shouldn’t be for children.

  4. Is covid even real?! I’m not entirely convinced, shouldn’t the gays be dropping like flys especially if this flu is replicated by germs. The sodomites and people who don’t bathe or wash their hands normally should be dying in the thousands or millions?! I dunno seems sketchy

    I think we are either living in a simulation or this is some Draconian apocalypse illuminati hell to just dumb down the masses and demoralize us. Wearing masks and following arrows in the grocery store aisle isn’t gonna save us from coronaflu. I just hope many libtards and conservacucks get wuflu’ed if it is real virus

  5. General George Washington was definitely NOT a “flutard” virus denier and vaccine hater. He embraced the science, and also used hygiene, strict separation rules, and quarantines of new recruits and visitors, to keep his revolutionary army as healthy as possible during the epidemic that swept through the colonies, started by infected British-hired mercenaries. (The British are also said to have deliberately deployed infectious prostitutes, as a biological weapon against revolutionary leaders and soldiers.) Primitive eighteenth-century vaccination was dangerous. If the dosage was wrong it could lead to death. It was also illegal in most of the colonies, and vaccination of the army was expressly prohibited by the Continental Congress, but Washington did it anyway: https://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/GW&smallpoxinoculation.html

    • Innocullation isn’t vaccination, Schlomo. Vaccination is literally the work of Edward Jenner, a Gloucestershire doctor.

      Recall that in the revolutionary period the US also had slavery and practiced strict Racial Distancing.

      Smallpox killed around 10% of the population on a yearly basis. Stfu. It was endemic and fact of life.

      • “It was endemic and fact of life”:

        Endemic, yes indeed. But there was more than usual during the war, including a major outbreak in Boston thanks to infected British troops arriving, and later, infected hired mercenaries.

        “Recall that in the revolutionary period the US also had slavery and practiced strict Racial Distancing”:

        Black slaves pressed into service by the British also got sick and died like flies.

        “Innocullation isn’t vaccination”:

        I’m familiar with Jenner and the history of “variolation,” if you want to know the precise, original term, which IS in fact, vaccination, a vaccination by inoculation. Inoculation is a much broader term than vaccination.

        • There were several outbreaks of small pox in the colonies before the war. I understand a doctor in Boston in the early 1700s came to the Royal Society to demonstrate innoculation methods he had developed for a disease. He got to be a fellow after the demo. Vaccines are zoonotic in many cases and vaccination was in competition with innoculation per Jenner.

          • That was the term Jenner used. But Vaccinia (cowpox) virus and Variola (smallpox) virus, although genetically related, are two distinct viruses. Both are thought to have descended from a Horse Pox ancestor. Vaccinia (cowpox) is about 99.7% genetically identical to Horse Pox. Variola (smallpox) is (was) very mild in horses: “(B)efore vaccination campaigns against smallpox were discontinued, horses were quite frequently accidentally infected with vaccinia virus from recently vaccinated humans. The disease takes one of two forms. In the buccal form there are pox-like lesions in the mucous membranes of the mouth and in the skin of the lips and nostrils. The disease lasts for about three weeks and is not considered serious. In the ‘grease’ form, papular lesions, which later become vesicles and then pustules covered with scabs, develop in the skin over the flexor surface of the joints in the lower part of the legs. Now that smallpox vaccination has been abandoned these conditions have become rare. It is possible that ‘grease’ in horses was the original source of vaccinia virus since all of the more recent cases of ‘grease’ have not had demonstrable contact with vaccinated humans.5 Further evidence of a horsepox- related virus being used in an early American smallpox vaccine was provided by genome sequencing”: https://www.anipedia.org/resources/horsepox/1096

      • To make that more clear: Jenner’s vaccination was an inoculation with cowpox virus. The other, probably older method of vaccination against smallpox, called “variolation,” was inoculation with smallpox itself.

        Edward Jenner quote: “The deviation of man from the state in which he was originally placed by nature seems to have proved to him a prolific source of diseases.”

        One sense in which “deviation from the state in which he was originally placed by nature” may be taken is that when races or peoples emigrate from their ancestral lands to different environments, they become infected with new diseases for which they have no natural immunity, and they also spread their own “heritage” diseases to the peoples in the lands to which they have immigrated. Cosmopolitan urbanism, and travelling and moving constantly is not natural and not healthy for humans.

        • Not only by people moving around, but also by global trade:

          It is almost certain that “Justinian’s Plague,” that brought the Byzantine Empire crashing down in a few years from its peak of power and prosperity to a failing system that could never recover its strength was caused by the importation of ivory from Ethiopia.

  6. When is this website going to officially declare itself as an anti-American leftist rag???? Only a punk would cloak themselves in a disguise while actively trying to subvert that which it hates. That’s a very jewish type of act.

    • When are people like you going to realize that being pro “America” in the 21st century is to be pro-ZOG.

      America is the most anti-white force on the planet and it exports anti-whiteness all over the world. The sooner the United States loses its superpower status the better for everybody.

  7. There’s a flu vaccine and people still get the flu and thousand die after getting the vaccine. COVID is the new flu, cold and every other sickness you would normally go to the Dr. for. Vaccines don’t work so stop kidding yourselves. If they did, no one would get the flu once vaccinated for it. COVID is the new global warming scam.

  8. Minnesota’s little dictator in the governor’s mansion just shut down indoor dining, gyms, and so on for 4 more f-in’ weeks. This is a local practice run of the Great Reset. Gov. Walz is a elite puppet who needs to be replaced.

    • “This is a local practice run of the Great Reset”:

      The “reset” has nothing to do with necessary temporary measures for public health in a deadly pandemic.

      The “reset” is nothing but the full, undisguised uniting of the big-corporate billionaires with “our” so-called democratically-elected, representative government. It is full, mature, extreme, undisguised plutocracy – with the billionaire, elite class no longer controlling government indirectly or covertly through lobbying pressure and gifts, private think tanks, etc. but becoming part of the government itself.

  9. The Alt-right mask-free “flutard” (“it’s just a flu,” or “just a hoax”) crowd likes to point to laissez-faire Sweden, but not anymore. The Swedish example is the worst in Europe, and now Sweden is belatedly enforcing some public health rules like the other countries: “In a recent OECD study, Sweden consistently ranked among the hardest hit nations in Europe, as measured by relative Covid mortality and infection rates. It was also the slowest at containing transmission. Sweden was recently forced to recalibrate its approach against the virus, as the daily case rate topped 7,000. In what Prime Minister Stefan Lofven called an “unprecedented” step earlier this month, Swedes will no longer be free to gather in public in groups larger than eight. The sale of alcohol is now also banned after 10 p.m. Lofven used a rare televised address on Sunday to plead with his countrymen to do more. “The health and lives of people are still in danger, and the danger is increasing,” he said. The new restrictions come amid warnings that Sweden’s intensive care beds are quickly filling up. Meanwhile, authorities in the country are warning against placing too much weight on a possible future vaccine. “We are still seeing an increase in patients who need care and intensive care,” Thomas Linden, a departmental head at Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare, said at Tuesday’s briefing. “One must not take the fact that there is a vaccine a few months away as an indication to be careless. In a third wave, the health-care system will be even more strained than it has been so far”: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-11-24/sweden-says-it-sees-no-signs-herd-immunity-is-stopping-the-virus

  10. The sheer fact that you use the term “conspiracy theorist” shows how clueless you are. And now censor my comment as you are supposed to do, fake dissenter.

    • I agree that a better term needs to be found than the original CIA propaganda term “conspiracy theorist.”

      The “Plandemic” nonsense is a theory about an imagined conspiracy that does not exist, yet we shouldn’t call it “conspiracy theory.”
