More good news: A Maryland bill designed to enshrine a right to abortion was withdrawn when fears over coronavirus preempted debate.

Quote:In a surprise move, a bill being considered by the Maryland Senate to permanently enshrine abortion as a right in the state’s constitution was abruptly withdrawn today due to concerns about the coronavirus.

This means that in an ironic twist, the coronavirus may have just saved countless lives that would have been lost had the bill passed. Pro-life advocates who had traveled to the Annapolis State House today in order to testify against the measure were ecstatic at the unexpected demise of the bill.

Maryland, a state named after Our Lady, would fall so far away from the faith. What a sad thing and then to be so pro-abortion, so much a worshiper of Moloch! But then, so are so many other states as well. Thanks be to God this has demonic atrocity, at least, been delayed!
Research team has isolated the COVID-19 virus

In Sunnybrook Research Institute

A team of researchers from Sunnybrook, McMaster University(opens in a new window) and the University of Toronto(opens in a new window) has isolated severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the agent responsible for the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19.

Thanks to nimble collaboration, the team was able to culture the virus from two clinical specimens in a Level 3 containment facility.

“We need key tools to develop solutions to this pandemic. While the immediate response is crucial, longer-term solutions come from essential research into this novel virus,” said Dr. Samira Mubareka, microbiologist and infectious diseases physician at Sunnybrook.

The isolated virus will help researchers in Canada and across the world develop better diagnostic testing, treatments and vaccines, and gain a better understanding of SARS-CoV-2 biology, evolution and clinical shedding.

“Researchers from these world-class institutions came together in a grassroots way to successfully isolate the virus in just a few short weeks,” said Dr. Rob Kozak, clinical microbiologist at Sunnybrook. “It demonstrates the amazing things that can happen when we collaborate.”

Dr. Arinjay Banerjee, NSERC post-doctoral fellow at McMaster University, said he knows the collaboration won’t stop there.

“Now that we have isolated the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we can share this with other researchers and continue this teamwork,” he said. “The more viruses that are made available in this way, the more we can learn, collaborate and share.”

Congratulations to the researchers from these three Canadian institutions: Dr. Samira Mubareka and Dr. Rob Kozak of Sunnybrook and University of Toronto; Dr. Arinjay Banerjee and Dr. Karen Mossman of McMaster University.

With gratitude to the CL3 team and Biosafety Officers.
Still more good news!

C-Fam's Stefano Gennarini reports: Empty Halls, No Abortion Language, Frustrates Feminists at UN Women’s Conference

Quote:The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, outbreak forced the commission to cancel and postpone much of the annual event. UN member states decided to only hold the business portion of the two-week conference during a two-hour meeting on Monday in order to adopt a political declaration on the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women, held in Beijing in 1995. But no one seemed to be celebrating.

UN officials and governments lamented that most of the annual commission was postponed or cancelled,  and, through euphemisms and veiled criticism, they complained about “the pushback” to an international right to abortion from the Trump administration and other governments around the world.

“Women’s access to sexual and reproductive health services is far from universal,” UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres pointed out at the outset.

“We must push back against the pushback,” he emphasized, repeating what has now become a signature phrase of his and a veiled swipe at the Trump administration and U.S. pro-life foreign policy.

Pro-abortion governments and allied UN officials are increasingly frustrated with U.S. pro-life foreign policy. The U.S. position has helped countries express their opposition to abortion in UN debates.

The CSW commission, a group of nations that includes the United States, adopted a political declaration that does not include abortion related terms. Previous declarations, including the last time the commission agreed on a political declaration in 2015, excluded the term “sexual and reproductive health,” which remains as controversial as ever.

This year, however, some governments were especially critical that these common code words for abortion were not included. Among the disgruntled nations were the Nordic countries, all EU member and aspiring member states, fifteen Latin American countries known as the Santiago Group, and South Africa.

An estimated 12,000 women had planned to attend the commission due to the planned anniversary commemoration of the Beijing conference. The 1995 meeting was a milestone event in international politics for feminists, not least for cementing the inclusion of abortion in UN policy.

Each year, thousands of women from around the world converge at UN headquarters in New York for the Commission on the Status of Women for two weeks of non-stop conferences and networking, aimed at solving the problems of the world’s women. It is a lively affair with a festival-like atmosphere, the largest annual global feminist event, and second largest annual UN event.

Abortion groups, who are among the most well-funded and visible of the feminist groups, control much of the agenda of the conference. This year there were none of the usual cheers and jeers to support abortion and intimidate the Holy See or others making pro-life statements. Activists and diplomats appeared disoriented. The event was unrecognizable from past sessions.

A two-week abortion 'dance party', cut down to a two hour business meeting that left them bored to tears.

If somebody did release this virus deliberately, he certainly didn't do the globalists any favors.

I would not use the Johns Hopkins COVID-19 map that's mentioned for info. I checked it awhile ago, and despite the Governors of both Kansas and Nebraska stating a couple of days ago that there are cases in their States, the John's Hopkins data doesn't mention them.

They had a label on their website saying the dashboard was under maintenance yesterday and I'm sure some of the data is lagged. They are using official data sets so if the WHO or CDC hasn't put it in yet it probably won't show up.

Local news is our best bet for real time info in our areas for sure. I think these maps are great for a broad view of the situation.

EDITOR'S NOTE:  Edited to replace Paracetamol with acetaminophen available in US.
WHO Now Officially Recommends to Avoid Taking Ibuprofen For COVID-19 Symptoms

AFP
17 MARCH 2020

The World Health Organization recommended Tuesday that people suffering COVID-19 symptoms avoid taking ibuprofen, after French officials warned that anti-inflammatory drugs could worsen effects of the virus.


The warning by French Health Minister Veran followed a recent study in The Lancet medical journal that hypothesised that an enzyme boosted by anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen could facilitate and worsen COVID-19 infections.

Asked about the study, WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told reporters in Geneva the UN health agency's experts were "looking into this to give further guidance."

"In the meantime, we recommend using rather paracetamol, and do not use ibuprofen as a self-medication. That's important," he said.
He added that if ibuprofen had been "prescribed by the healthcare professionals, then, of course, that's up to them."


His comments came after Veran sent a tweet cautioning that the use of ibuprofen and similar anti-inflammatory drugs could be "an aggravating factor" in COVID-19 infections.

"In the case of fever, take acetaminophen (Paracetamol)," he wrote.

The French minister stressed that patients already being treated with anti-inflammatory drugs should ask advice from their doctor.
Acetaminophen ( Paracetamol ) must be taken strictly according to the recommended dose, because too much of it can damage the liver.
The COVID-19 pandemic, which has infected around 190,000 people worldwide and killed more than 7,800, causes mild symptoms in most people, but can result in pneumonia and in some cases severe illness that can lead to multiple organ failure.


Even before the pandemic, French authorities sounded the alarm over serious "infectious complications" linked to the use of ibuprofen, which is sold under various brands like Nurofen and Advil, and other anti-inflammatory drugs.

A spokesperson for British pharmaceutical company Reckitt Benckiser, which makes Nurofen, said in an email statement that the company was aware of concerns raised about "the use of steroids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs) products, including ibuprofen, for the alleviation of COVID-19 symptoms."

"Consumer safety is our number one priority," the spokesperson said, stressing that "ibuprofen is a well-established medicine that has been used safely as a self-care fever and pain reducer, including in viral illnesses, for more than 30 years."

"We do not currently believe there is any proven scientific evidence linking over-the-counter use of ibuprofen to the aggravation of COVID-19," the statement said.

The spokesperson said Reckitt Benckiser was "engaging with the WHO, EMA (the European Medicines Agency) and other local health authorities" on the issue and would provide "any additional information or guidance necessary for the safe use of our products following any such evaluation."
