    Yes, the Democrats are having "rallies" but they are not the President. What a flawed immature personality; ask him to account for his actions, and he talks about Democrats. He did more campaigning in that video than answering the question and when he did he blamed someone else for his incompetence.

    Chris Hedges:
    OLIGARCS in America are the rulers of us all (& the world) who control politics, the economy, culture, education and the press. Bernie Sanders speaks about the forbidden topic: CLASS. Open, nonviolent revolt against the oligarchic state is our only HOPE. Oligarchic rule must be destroyed. If we fail, our democracy, and finally our species, will become extinct!
    Sanders poses a genuine threat to them, and they hate and fear him. Read and follow TruthDig.com.
    Please everyone, vote for Sanders, do not waiver or we will all be destroyed by capitalism…wage slavery.

    To slow the spread of Coronavirus and to reduce the inevitable influx of hundreds of people to local emergency rooms we should immediately declare mandatory self quarantine for at least a two month while the US govt provides a modest UBI to prevent people from going out. Andrew Yang should tweet this ASAP. Hong Kong has already done it!!

    This man is the boss of all boomers. No wonder he got elected. All dictated by fear.
    Wrong people usually boomers vote compared to the new generations who are much advanced and smarter.
    I’ve done the research from a third perspective. It’s like if America is degrading back to medieval times. The senate is literally similar to church over state.
    Over 65-90 cases now in America for coronavirus within a day and he also had the audacity with Pence to say it that’s its handle.
    It’s not an emergency or pandemic but it’s definitely a threat. Also, using his own radical immigration laws as a way to correspond that it’s actually best policy he’s settled. That’s not how immigration regulation was supposed to be executed.

    Last Year the House of Representatives passed a Bill , House Resolution 3 The Elijah J. Cummings Act which would allow Medicare to negotiate prices for medications with the Big Pharmacutical Corporations. Currently it is ILLEGAL for Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate prices. The Congressional Budget Office did a cost to benefit analysis and that legislation would have saved BILLIONs. Unfortunately that bill has been stalled on McConnell's Desk keeping the Senate from voting on it. Thanks again Mitch.

    Oh!,I thought WHO and CDC already said that to produce a vaccine will most take 1 to 1.1/2 years to be locally available. A minimum of 6 months is needed for a trail run. By the time any vaccine can be produced many people would have already died and rest of the survivors will already have anti-bodies to protect themselves from the virus. I guess by that time COVID-19 have miraculously disappear, right?!

    Watch Med cram you tube corona update or read JAMA update Feb 27 for 72,000 case study of corona. Don't pay attention to the hype. Get the Facts! This is a new virus, nobody has immunity, and the first season will be the worst. It's not President Trumps fault and the statistics are probably skewed to the bad because 81% of cases are mild and many cases will therefore be undocumented. Wash you hands and be informed.

    This was "The Plan" all along. Just follow Bill Gates and his cronies intentions. eg. Event 201, Gates in 2018 and/or 2015 predicting Worldwide Pandemic. How would he know??? Of course, unless he has something to do with it… ie funding of the Pirbright Institute and others who hold Patents for Coronavirus. It is all too convenient that 6 weeks after Event 201 held at the John Hopkins University where they developed their 7 step plan for dealing with a Simulated Coronavirus Pandemic, that the "REAL" thing occurs. How Coincidental is that??? There is enough Prima Facie evidence to indict Gates and his buddies whereby they should immediately be taken into custody. If the type and amount of evidence showing his collusion and what appears to be insider prescient knowledge of the outbreak were available on any other crime the accused would have been arrested, tried and jailed immediately. Not with this Globalist parasite.
    It is also convenient that China is ground zero for the disease (how coincidental in a time of U.S. China trade wars, Soros led Color Revolution in Hong Kong) and Iran is the other Covid19 hotspot. Funny how one of the globalists (read Wall St controlled U.S. government puppets) arch enemies is a victim of the virus as well.
    To further add to the Scam of a Plot that it is, we have Dean Koontz's 1981 book Eyes of Darkness having an event similar to what we see and the Virus is called WUHAN 400 or something to that effect.
    This has fake written all over it. The Main Stream Media are also culpable for the sensationalist hype and perpetuating of the public delusion. Wake Up Everyone!!! You are being hoodwinked. Stop voting for Globalist Politicians.

    Antiviral activity of chloroquine against human coronavirus OC43 infection in newborn mice.

    Abstract

    Until recently, human coronaviruses (HCoVs), such as HCoV strain OC43 (HCoV-OC43), were mainly known to cause 15 to 30% of mild upper respiratory tract infections. In recent years, the identification of new HCoVs, including severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus, revealed that HCoVs can be highly pathogenic and can cause more severe upper and lower respiratory tract infections, including bronchiolitis and pneumonia. To date, no specific antiviral drugs to prevent or treat HCoV infections are available. We demonstrate that chloroquine, a widely used drug with well-known antimalarial effects, inhibits HCoV-OC43 replication in HRT-18 cells, with a 50% effective concentration (+/- standard deviation) of 0.306 +/- 0.0091 microM and a 50% cytotoxic concentration (+/- standard deviation) of 419 +/- 192.5 microM, resulting in a selectivity index of 1,369. Further, we investigated whether chloroquine could prevent HCoV-OC43-induced death in newborn mice. Our results show that a lethal HCoV-OC43 infection in newborn C57BL/6 mice can be treated with chloroquine acquired transplacentally or via maternal milk. The highest survival rate (98.6%) of the pups was found when mother mice were treated daily with a concentration of 15 mg of chloroquine per kg of body weight. Survival rates declined in a dose-dependent manner, with 88% survival when treated with 5 mg/kg chloroquine and 13% survival when treated with 1 mg/kg chloroquine. Our results show that chloroquine can be highly effective against HCoV-OC43 infection in newborn mice and may be considered as a future drug against HCoVs.
