The latest Covid cure? Hydrogen peroxide in a nebulizer.


A national asthma organization has warned of the dangers of a recent social media trend of people inhaling hydrogen peroxide through a nebulizer to treat or prevent COVID-19.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) said in a blog post on Tuesdaythe trend seen on websites such as Facebook, Twitter and TikTok is "concerning and dangerous."

"DO NOT put hydrogen peroxide into your nebulizer and breathe it in. This is dangerous!" the organization said in its post. "It is not a way to prevent nor treat COVID-19."

A nebulizer is a machine used by people with asthma that turns liquid medicine into mist, which people breathe through with a mask or mouthpiece.

For these idiots saying there is a 98% survival rate with Covid. Would you go into a stadium of 50,000 people knowing 1,000 wouldn’t leave. And you don’t know which 1,000 it is ? That’s 2%

It is far too soon for people to write off Joe Biden


Put it down to a hyper-caffeinated media. A few weeks ago, Joe Biden’s presidency was widely hailed as a triumph. Coronavirus was in retreat. The US economy was roaring back. And Democrats looked on course to pass Biden’s ambitious economic bills by early autumn. Rash comparisons between Biden and Franklin Roosevelt were being bandied about. 

A few weeks of setbacks have changed everything. The rampaging Delta variant has dented consumer sentiment and created a bad jobs report. Forecasts of a Democratic defeat in the midterm elections next year are now commonplace, which would turn Biden into a lame duck. All of a sudden people are proclaiming Biden’s “failed presidency”. Others are chronicling “How Delta beat Biden”. 

-------

Biden’s biggest setback, however, was the botched nature of the Afghanistan withdrawal. The July 2 pullout from Bagram air base occurred in advance of his self-imposed deadline of August 31. But the way it happened undermined Biden’s reputation for competence, which was probably his most important quality in defeating Donald Trump. No amount of White House special pleading can alter the fact that America’s exit has damaged US interests. Since then Biden’s approval ratings have fallen by roughly six percentage points, which is steep. In terms of media narrative, his presidency is now in freefall. 


-------

Nothing that Biden faces yet compares with that. For all its flaws, the Afghanistan exit is still popular with the US public, though the president has personally taken a hit over its handling. The real test of his fortunes will come in the next few weeks when we find out whether he can push through his $1.2tn infrastructure bill and $3.5tn “American families plan”, both of which would have a big impact on working Americans. One of the reasons most Republicans oppose the first bill and are unanimously against the second is because they know how popular they would be.
