Truth about “Airborne” Covid-19
IMPORTANT: “Airborne” confusion: Covid-19 is only “airborne” as droplets that quickly fall to surfaces.
Covid-19 is NOT “airborne” as an aerosol that hangs and drifts freely in the air for longer periods like flu.
If Covid-19 was like flu, your mask would offer very little protection. The virus could enter through your eyes. Social distancing would be meaningless because the virus would float freely over greater distances and for longer times.
The best way to avoid Covid-19 is by avoiding sick people, social distancing, wearing masks in public and cleaning surfaces frequently, including your hands. Also remember to avoid touching your face, nose, mouth or eyes. Once your hands have touched anything that could be contaminated, virus could be transferred to anything including your cell phone, wallet, steering wheel, child, dog, etc and be picked up by you or others later.
Straightening your mask with contaminated hands may transfer the virus to your face, nose, eyes. Wearing a mask improperly or reusing it without washing it could be worse than not wearing it at all.
Gloves are not recommended. Wearing gloves only protects your hands, not your face, etc. from virus picked up on the outside of contaminated gloves. Covid-19 virus can live on surfaces for several days, depending on the material. so frequent use of hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes and sprays are recommended.
important information: Current Quarantine Approach IS Wrong Based on Science | Dr Erickson & Dr Massihi Pt1
This Youtube video, though lengthy, is worth the time. It puts into perspective the CoVid-19 pandemic as compared to recent influenza outbreaks in the United States. It gives reasons why the country should be opened, now that better data is available, rather than initial academic models. Previous quarantines isolated the sick and vulnerable, not the healthy population at large. If current data had been available in the beginning, there probably would never have been a shut down of schools, group activities and the economy. Rather, there would have been an emphasis on protecting the elderly and infirm along with common sense hygiene measures.
NOTE: Part 2 was removed from Youtube for “violating community standards.” Meaning, there were political views that did not agree with the Youtube algorithm, which favors a leftist view.
Two strains? Italy has the BAD strain. Three weeks from Three Patients to Collapsing Hospitals. By Joanne Nova. Figures from South Korea and the Diamond Princess may not be a good guide to what’s happening in Italy and Iran. There something seriously different going on there. Death rates are much higher than expected. Three weeks […]

Roughly five months before the Wuhan coronavirus (CoVid-19) reared its ugly head, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission held a hearing about America’s growing reliance on Chinese pharmaceuticals. And one of the things discussed – or perhaps admitted, depending on how you look at it – is the fact that a shocking 97 percent of all antibiotics…

The Intellectual and Moral Decline in Academic Research, by Edward Archer. My experiences at four research universities and as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) research fellow taught me that the relentless pursuit of taxpayer funding has eliminated curiosity, basic competence, and scientific integrity in many fields. Yet, more importantly, training in “science” is now […]

Here it is. Please review and send me your thoughts. Supposedly this is what will be sent to the White House for review and approval. This is my favorite part so far: If true, this would mean the the Harvard Six City and Pope ACS studies are history and won’t be used by EPA again.…
via Latest EPA science transparency proposal leaked to NYTimes; Key air quality junk science to be banned unless data is made public — JunkScience.com
EPA is cleaning up its act with new, science-based, transparent data that can be verified and replicated by independent researchers. No one should object to better data methods unless they want to block advances in science or support embedded myths of environmentalism. The Harvard Six City study was begun in 1974 and followed participants for 15 years. It used questionnaire type surveys of participants and followed up with spirometry testing and death dates/causes. Death rate only varied by 2 years for most and least polluted cities, which could be a statistical fluke. It has been 40 years since the study was ended, so confidentiality should not be a problem, except to redact names.
This new proposed ruling by the EPA, along with ending the Linear No Threshhold method of risk determination should be celebrated in the scientific and medical communities. It means more research, not less, and more accurate data overall.
