Trump Blasts China, WHO for Unnecessary Spread of COVID-19

Trump continued his vendetta against China while addressing the United Nations general assembly

President Trump continued his vendetta against China while addressing the United Nations general assembly on Tuesday, calling for the global body to hold Beijing accountable for the astronomic spread of the coronavirus.

In pre-recorded remarks to the virtual assembly, Trump said the U.S. had gone to war against “the invisible enemy, the China virus,” and laid out several grievances as evidence of Beijing’s responsibility for the spread of COVID-19.

“The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions,” Trump said.

According to the latest data from the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center via The Hill, nearly 1 million people have died from the virus across the globe, including 200,000 deaths in the U.S. alone, the highest recorded number of any country.

President Trump did not hold back when it came to the World Health Organization, either. After terminating the U.S. relationship with the WHO in May over its handling of the pandemic, the President made it clear that China is not the only one who should face consequences.

“The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization – which is virtually controlled by China – falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” the president said.

After Trump’s piece, Chinese representative to the U.N, Zhang Jun, rejected his claims as “baseless” accusations against China and called for “not spreading of a political virus.” Chinese President Xi Jinping, “who also addressed the global body in a series of recorded remarks, reiterated calls for dialogue and positive competition,” according to The Hill.

“China is the largest developing country in the world, a country that is committed to peaceful open cooperative and common development,” Xi said in translated remarks. We will never seek hegemony expansion or sphere of influence. WE have no intention to fight either a cold war, or a hot one, with any country.”

As tensions between the U.S. and China rise and diplomatic relations veer off course, these remarks are among the first confrontations between the two leaders. In August, Trump said that he had not spoken to Xi in “a long time” and while meetings between officials occurred in June, it remains unclear whether the two leaders have had any direct communication.

It is evident that Trump will not hold back his feelings regarding China’s involvement with the coronavirus and because Trump has made his criticism of China a major part of his reelection campaign, the criticism will continue until a consensus is reached.

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’



Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu




Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
