Fox's Ainsley Airhead SHOCKED That Children Can Get Coronavirus Infections

Stop slurping up Trump's lies and maybe you won't be shocked in the future, dumbass.

Fox’s Ainsley Earhardt Shocked By Rate of Child Coronavirus Infections: ‘I Heard Kids Really Don’t Get It’

By Charlie Nash

Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt expressed shock over the rate of child coronavirus infections on Monday, stating that she had heard children didn’t get the virus.

According to a new report — that comes as a debate rages over whether to send children back to school — nearly 100,000 kids tested positive for coronavirus in the last two weeks of July.

<...>

“We’re all worried about sending our kids back to school, what that’s going to look like for our country, and for our elderly grandparents and things like that. 97,000 kids have tested positive? That was such a shock to me because I heard kids really don’t get it, if they do they’re all going to be okay,” admitted Earhardt during an interview with Texas emergency medicine physician Dr. Natasha Kathuria. The Fox host then asked, “Do you know any details about that percentage of kids that did get it? Are they all doing okay? Do you have any deaths?”

Facebook Takes Down Trump Post, Citing Policies on 'Harmful COVID Misinformation'

Facebook took down a post shared by President Donald Trump Wednesday from his Fox & Friends interview, citing their policy on coronavirus misinformation.

The post the president shared included the clip of his claim on Fox that children are “almost immune from this disease,” as he argued for school reopenings.

Facebook took down the post hours later. Per the Washington Post:

“This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation,” said Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone.

Virus testing in the US is dropping, even as deaths mount

Source: AP

U.S. testing for the coronavirus is dropping even as infections remain high and the death toll rises by more than 1,000 a day, a worrisome trend that officials attribute largely to Americans getting discouraged over having to wait hours to get a test and days or weeks to learn the results.

An Associated Press analysis found that the number of tests per day slid 3.6% over the past two weeks to 750,000, with the count falling in 22 states. That includes places like Alabama, Mississippi, Missouri and Iowa where the percentage of positive tests is high and continuing to climb, an indicator that the virus is still spreading uncontrolled.

Amid the crisis, some health experts are calling for the introduction of a different type of test that would yield results in a matter of minutes and would be cheap and simple enough for millions of Americans to test themselves — but would also be less accurate.

<...>

Widespread testing is considered essential to managing the outbreak as the U.S. approaches a mammoth 5 million confirmed infections and more than 157,000 deaths out of over 700,000 worldwide.

Why scientists are worried about a 'Warp Speed' COVID-19 vaccine

By Mike Moffitt

Taking short cuts could have serious repercussions

<...>

Here’s what worries scientists:

—FDA regulators will likely face enormous political pressure to approve a vaccine, even one that’s not proven safe and effective.

—A vaccine that’s less effective than billed could cause wider spread of the pandemic, Michael S. Kinch, director of the Centers for Research Innovation in Biotechnology and Drug Discovery at Washington University in St. Louis, writes in Stat News.

“A merely short-term effect could encourage vaccinated individuals to resume risky behaviors, which would all but guarantee that the epidemic endures,” argues Kinch, who is also a professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics.

—A vaccine would likely erode compliance of social distancing and mask wearing, measures that are proven effective against spread of the virus.

“They automatically are going to say, ‘Oh great, I’m just going to get my little vaccine, and I can go back and do exactly the things I was doing last year’. That is absolutely not true,” Maria Elena Bottazzi, associate dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, told Business Insider in an interview.

Republicans are trying to block mask mandates at polling places.

A group of voters backed by Republican legislators sued Gov. Tim Walz and other state and local officials Tuesday in federal court, aiming to block a face mask requirement at polling places.

Members of the Minnesota Voters Alliance and GOP lawmakers contend Walz’s mask mandate, intended to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, conflicts with a longstanding state law making it a misdemeanor for someone to conceal their identity with a mask. The 1963 law grants exceptions, including masks that are part of medical treatment.

WNBA Players Wear Shirts Endorsing Candidate Running Against Republican Kelly Loeffler

By KJ Edelman

WNBA players have begun wearing shirts endorsing Rev. Raphael Warnock, a challenger to Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), to protest Loeffler’s involvement in the league and her comments against the Black Lives Matter movement.

Before playing the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday — the team Loeffler is a co-owner of — players on the Chicago Sky wore shirts that read “Vote Warnock.”

The WNBA has dedicated its 2020 season to social justice, launching a platform titled the Justice Movement, which will “amplify the voices and leadership of WNBA players.” Loeffler opposed the plans in a scathing letter, claiming they were too political and exclusionary. Instead, she suggested players, coaches, and fans wear jerseys with the American flag printed on them.

Trump's Niece Says He Should Be Charged With Negligent Homicide Over His Mishandling of Coronavirus

President Donald Trump’s niece Mary Trump said that her uncle should be charged with “negligent homicide” due to his mishandling of the coronavirus during an interview with Dean Obeidallah on his SiriusXM show on Tuesday.

“If you have it in your power to save somebody’s life but stand by and do nothing, isn’t that negligent homicide or something like that?” Mary Trump asked.

She questioned how the president got away with withholding Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from certain blue states as a way to retaliate against Democratic governors — asking again how it wasn’t considered a crime.

CNN's Acosta Corners Trump on Hydroxychloroquine: Why Is Your Task Force 'Contradicting You?'

LOL I love Jim Acosta.....

---------------
By Ken Meyer

CNN’s Jim Acosta challenged Donald Trump on Monday over how many times the president’s coronavirus pandemic messaging has diverged from public health experts.

During a White House press pool spray, Acosta asked the president, “Can you explain why so many of the public health experts on the Coronavirus task force are contradicting you on things like why the virus is so widespread in this country…Why are so many of these people on your task force contradicting you?”

<...>

Trump answered by once again claiming hydroxychloroquine has “tremendous support but politically it’s toxic because I supported it.”

“If I would have said ‘do not use hydroxychloroquine under any circumstances’ they would have said it’s a great thing,” Trump said.
