Half of COVID-19 deaths in CA are in nursing homes directed by Newsom to accept persons testing positive for virus

Govenor Newsom  — like  New York —  moves persons with the coronavirus  into  CA  nursing care facilites.

On March 30th, Governor Newsom’s administration warned skilled nursing facilities that they “shall not refuse to admit or readmit a resident based on their status as a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case.”

“California’s directive is nothing less than a death sentence for countless residents,” warned Patricia McGinnis, executive director of California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform.

Half of California’s deaths, or 1,276, have occurred in nursing homes, though not all are the SNFs that were ordered to accept coronavirus patients.

Whitmer, Cuomo, Wolf, and Newsom have been widely praised by the media, even though their disastrous policies likely led to the deaths of thousands of senior citizens in nursing homes.

There were states that got it right, protecting senior citizens by barring the transfer of coronavirus patients to nursing homes, requiring negative tests before a transfer, and creating separate facilities.

coronavirus killed by drug that treats parasitic infections — invermectin

coronavirus killed by drug used for lice in lab setting

A drug ivermectin  commonly used to treat lice  and widely available  kills  coronavirus in lab setting.  Experts warn, do not self medicate.

April 7, 2020 — An inexpensive drug used to treat parasitic infections killed the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in less than 48 hours in a laboratory setting, Australian researchers say.
The drug, ivermectin, has been used widely used for decades. It was introduced as a veterinary drug in the 1970s. It is available variously.  
Doctors also prescribe it to treat head lice, scabies, and other infections caused by parasites.According to a report published online in the journal Antiviral Research, the drug quickly prevented replication of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The study has been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication, although it is not yet a “definitive” version of record.Researchers infected cells with SARS-CoV-2, then exposed them to ivermectin. “We showed that a single dose of ivermectin could kill COVID-19 in a petri dish within 48 hours, indicating potent antiviral activity,” says study co-author David Jans, PhD, a professor of biochemistry and m0 in Melbourne.Even at 24 hours, “there was a really significant reduction” in the virus, study leader Kylie Wagstaff, PhD, a senior research fellow in biochemistry and molecular biology at Monash University, said in a statement.But experts say more testing is needed to know if it works well in people and if it’s safe to use.

‘No One Should Try to Self-Medicate’

“The main way we think ivermectin works is to target a key molecule of our cells that we think helps the virus to proliferate,” Jans says. “By stopping this, the virus replicates more slowly, and so our immune system has a better chance to mount the antiviral response and kill the virus.” Giving this or any antiviral drug early is thought to give the body the best chance of beating infection, he says.

In other studies, the researchers say, the drug has been shown to work against dengue fever and to limit infections similar to COVID-19, such as the West Nile virus.

The drug is “safe at relatively high doses, widely available, and relatively cheap, too,” Jans says. The next step is more research to find the best dose for fighting COVID-19. Then researchers can begin testing in people, he says. “It is important to stress that no one should try to self-medicate with versions of ivermectin that are for veterinary purposes or head lice.” The only safe way to get ivermectin is by prescription from a doctor, he says.

Better safe than sorry? Why Resurrection Church Aptos CA must remodel Markey Community Center ASAP

Better safe than sorry?  Why Resurrection Church Aptos CA  must remodel their Community Center ASAP.

Tom Hogan, a member of the parish,  spoke  at Resurrection Church 3/23/2000 on Why Now and How the Remodel of Markey Community Center will proceed.  Tom Hogan is on the Steering Committee guiding the remodel effort.  He  detailed the necessary safety issues which must be addressed.

The hub for Resurrection Church — their community center — requires extensive  changes to make it safe for volunteers, staff and the persons served. Resurrection Church provides many ministries to youth, seniors and vulnerable persons.

One vulnerable person served:  Many non-profit organizations including Boy Scouts use the Community Center to provides services used by the Aptosian community.  Click  Here for a brief  video of a Boy Scout project located on Resurrection’s grounds which, when the video was taken, provides temporary  shelter for a homeless person.

Why is the proposed remodel of  Resurrection Church’s community center so expensive?   Safety is the prime reason for the expensive remodel:  the expected  cost    $5.5 MILLION.

Safety issues:   Resurrection Church’s community center is a  55 year old building, separate from the church proper, which has asbestos in the walls and ceiling and  paint with lead in it  on the walls.  The building floods on occasion due to stormy weather.  Recently, a large tree fell one corner of Markey Community Center, disabling the Center for a few days and  ‘yellow tagging’  Resurrection Church’s  children’s playground which is currently not safe to use.   Volunteers and staff need to be able to exit safely should there be an emergency such a as  a dangerous person confronting them.  them.  Federal  OSHA law requires exit routes be mantaotry.  The ceiling requires a sprinkler system.  The bathrooms need to meet health codes and must  be safe for persons in wheel chairs.

Resurrection Church has THE PLAN which it has been following to gather the necessary money needed prior to start of construction.  For information on Resurrection Church’s website click HERE for the Resurrection Catholic Church 2020 Campaign.

THE PLAN:  

  1. Identify  prospects  who can make  large  Leader Gifts.   So far, parishioners have given large and smaller gifts totaling  $1 MILLION of the $5.5 needed. About 1/2 the Goal towards Leader Gifts has been met.   
  2.  Identify  prospects for Foundation Grants.  This is ongoing.  As of 3/15/2000 no Foundations have said Yes.
  3. Identify prospects for Community (business) Gifts.
  4. Contact the parish members who have not yet given

This post will be updated when more information becomes available.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic  Resurrection Church was required by the Diocese to cancel   the  meeting for Volunteers scheduled for today 3/14/2000.   Also,  the Church was required to cancel various fundraisers including Sunday Icecream Social and Eat, Drink and Give.

Resurrection Church’s grounds include places for repose,  places  to sit and enjoy the beauty  of the setting. One such spot I call Art from the Heart located in front of the Handicapped Parking.  Click Here for a brief video of Art from the Heart.

Over kill reaction to corona virus? 40 have died …half from one facility

Overkill reactions n to the corona virus?   Are you hoarding toilet paper?  Hiding toilet paper in your safe?  Come on now ….

Roughly  40 persons in the  USA have died from the Corona virus, about half who died are in one nursing home in Seattle, Washington.

The most vulnerable to succumb to the virus  are older  persons over 60 with respiratory issues and chronic illnesses. Roughly half of those who have died are from one facility in Seattle, WA.

One local Santa Cruz MD predicts that one MILLION persons in the USA alone  will die from the virus.  Based on what facts?  That’s an overkill reaction.

What does  make  sense to do:

  1.   regularly and frequently  wipe down using disinfectant wipes those   surfaces people frequently touch  (door knobs, church pews, tables, railings)
  2.  regularly and frequently wash hands 20 seconds with soap and water
  3. practice ‘social distancing’ so less exposed to coughs
  4. stay home when  sick or think you are getting sick

The stock market plunged down to levels where there are good stocks to buy.   One area to consider are consumer goods companies which produce disinfectant wipes.  For example,  Clorox wipes are  made by a CA company  with 8,000 employees. Clorox is a a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble.  So — why not  invest in America’s need for more disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces clean?  The Motley Fool recommended buying Proctor and Gamble today 3/12/2000.

Socialized murder kills people

 

socialized medicine killed Princess Diana as France has no trauma specialists and she was left in the tunnel over an hour

Princess Diana died because of socialized medicine.

Author Dr. David Schneider, an orthopedic surgeon from Colorado, explained how with socialized medicine, wait times for care “are disastrous.” In Canada, the wait time to see a specialist is two years, and then another two years to get the procedure.

“People in this country would go crazy if you were told you had to wait four months,” he said.

Then he explained how Princess Diana would be alive today, if not for socialized medicine. “Princess Diana was in the car accident in France,” he explained. “They actually don’t have any trauma specialists in France.”

“For the first hour after that accident, she was still in that tunnel,” he continued. “And after an hour, they took her to a nearby hospital and she was alive for another three hours and they couldn’t control the bleeding from her pulmonary artery.”

Schneider explained that “there were no trauma-trained people there.

Opps — man forgets tampons …?

“Extra large sanitary pads and extra small ones, pads for the night…”

Tampons are used by  (  ) only women  (  ) men too

Dear Readers, be warned that what you’re about to read will likely be deemed hate speech by the thought police; Google may very well deem me worthy of internet jail because I’m about to contradict the left’s orthodox teachings on sexuality and gender.

Without further ado, here is the spiteful statement that will earn me the label of bigot:

Biological men cannot have periods and do not need tampons.

Did anyone born prior to this century ever think that statement would be necessary? I didn’t. No doubt, neither did you, yet here we are. “Jessica” Yaniv, a man who pretends to be a woman, tweeted yesterday, “My period started so ya, couldn’t go into the pool. But it was so much fun! Forgot my tampons in my other bag fml.”

Mother Teresa: goes from rat infested Baltimore to Calcutta ….

Flashback: Mother Teresa Set Up Sisters of Mercy Hospice in Rat-Infested Baltimore – Visited the City Three Times
The Democrats and their media attacked President Trump this week for pointing out the horrible living conditions in rat-infested Baltimore.

Mother Teresa saw this too.

The renowned Catholic founder of the Sisters of Mercy built a hospice in Baltimore to care for the poor and show them dignity.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata established the home at St. Wenceslaus Parish for those afflicted with AIDS.

The Baltimore Sun reported:
Mother Teresa came to Baltimore in 1992 to dedicate Gift of Hope as an AIDS hospice.

Bernie Sanders part one and two

  Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Sunday he thinks it’s “unbelievable” that President Trump “attacks American cities” when asked about Trump’s tweet calling Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore district a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

However, Sanders sounded a different tune in 2015 when he likened Cummings’ West Baltimore district to a “Third World country.”

Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation. You would think that you were in a Third World country,” Sanders said during a tour of the city in the aftermath of riots over the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray, an African-American man who died after falling into a coma while in police custody.

Sanders’ 2015 “Third World” comments are not his only  statements criticizing the living conditions in Baltimore.

In 2016, the politician sounded off about Baltimore’s “poorest boroughs,” saying that residents have “lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea.”

Some reasons to “church””   1) so women do not wear hajib — which according to the Muslim “bible” prevents rape & sexual assault.  Well, you probably can wear hajib at St. John’s and other churches.  What think?    DrCameronjackson@gmail.com
