Police: Man wipes nose on employee's shirt after being told to wear mask in Michigan store

HOLLY, Mich. (Gray News) - Police in one Michigan community are searching for a man who they said wiped his nose on a retail employee’s shirt after he was told to wear a mask.

Three Russian doctors fall from hospital windows, raising questions amid coronavirus pandemic

Source: CNN

Moscow (CNN)Three frontline healthcare workers have mysteriously fallen out of hospital windows in Russia over the past two weeks, heightening public attention to the working conditions for doctors and medical professionals amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Two of those healthcare workers are dead, and one remains hospitalized.
All three incidents, which are being investigated by Russian law enforcement authorities, have prompted intense discussion in the Russian press and on social media.

Alexander Shulepov, an ambulance doctor in Voronezh, a city about 320 miles south of Moscow, is in serious condition after falling from a hospital window on Saturday. Local state television, citing regional health officials, said he fell out of second-floor window of the Novousmanskaya hospital, where he worked and was receiving treatment after testing positive for coronavirus.

Shulepov was hospitalized for coronavirus on April 22, the same day he and his colleague Alexander Kosyakin posted a video online saying that Shulepov had been forced to continue working after testing positive for coronavirus.

Kosyakin had also previously criticized hospital administration for protective gear shortages on his social media and was questioned by the police for allegedly spreading fake news.

White House economic adviser says additional coronavirus stimulus package might not be necessary

Source: CNN

(CNN)White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said that another round of coronavirus relief legislation might not be necessary, as Democrats push for Congress to provide more federal funding to cash-strapped state and local governments.

Congress has already passed trillions of dollars in unprecedented legislative relief in response to the pandemic, but the scale of the devastation that the crisis has inflicted has led lawmakers to consider another round of aid. Several states have started lifting their stay-at-home orders and reopening their economies, despite health experts advising otherwise and testing not yet being readily available.

"I think right now, because there's been good news really, that the opening up is starting to happen faster than we expected, appears to be doing so safely, then there is a chance that we won't really need a phase four," Hassett said on Fox News Saturday morning.
Negotiations are underway over a fourth stimulus package -- or "phase four" of the coronavirus response -- and Congressional Democratic leaders have made clear that a top priority for them is funding for states and localities.

Trump to travel to Arizona Honeywell facility next week amid push to lift coronavirus restrictions

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump will travel to Phoenix on Tuesday, leaving the confines of Washington for the first time in more than a month as the administration begins pushing states to ease coronavirus restrictions that have crippled the U.S. economy.

The president will visit a Honeywell aerospace facility that is expanding its production to meet the demand for the critical N-95 respirator masks needed for health care workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, according to White House spokesman Judd Deere.

"The visit will highlight Honeywell’s investment in critical medical equipment production within the United States and the addition of 500 manufacturing jobs in Arizona," Deere said in a statement. "President Trump and his Administration, and the Coronavirus Task Force continue to lead the fight for Arizona and the country against this invisible enemy."

The president revealed his travel plans earlier Wednesday during a roundtable discussion with business executives from companies including Hilton, Waffle House and Wynn Resorts.

Alabama to partially reopen despite rising coronavirus

Source: The Hill

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) said Tuesday that she will allow retailers, some businesses and state beaches to reopen on Thursday, despite acknowledging that Alabama’s number of COVID-19 cases is still rising.

Ivey said she will not extend the state’s expiring stay-at-home order, but will issue a new “safer at home” order, effective Thursday, that encourages, but doesn’t require, people to stay home.

Businesses will be allowed to open if they follow sanitation and social-distancing guidelines, but “higher-risk” establishments — including gyms, theaters, bowling alleys and night clubs — will remain closed. All retail stores will be able to open at a 50 percent occupancy rate.

Revealed: leader of group peddling bleach as coronavirus 'cure' wrote to Trump this week

Source: The Guardian

The leader of the most prominent group in the US peddling potentially lethal industrial bleach as a “miracle cure” for coronavirus wrote to Donald Trump at the White House this week.
In his letter, Mark Grenon told Trump that chlorine dioxide – a powerful bleach used in industrial processes such as textile manufacturing that can have fatal side-effects when drunk – is “a wonderful detox that can kill 99% of the pathogens in the body”. He added that it “can rid the body of Covid-19”.
A few days after Grenon dispatched his letter, Trump went on national TV at his daily coronavirus briefing at the White House on Thursday and promoted the idea that disinfectant could be used as a treatment for the virus. To the astonishment of medical experts, the US president said that disinfectant “knocks it out in a minute. One minute!”
He went on to say: “Is there a way we can do something, by an injection inside or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it’d be interesting to check that.”
Trump did not specify where the idea of using disinfectant as a possible remedy for Covid-19 came from, and the source for his notion remains obscure. But the Guardian has learned that peddlers of chlorine dioxide – industrial bleach – have been making direct approaches to the White House in recent days.

Coronavirus: US death toll passes 50,000

Source: BBC

The US virus death toll has surpassed 50,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, in what is the world's deadliest Covid-19 outbreak.

More than 3,000 deaths came in the last 24 hours, and there are now over 870,000 confirmed cases nationwide.

But the US still has a lower mortality rate than most European nations based on current case counts, as the White House task force has emphasised.

Recent rises are also partly due to the inclusion of "probable" virus deaths.

The US has by far the highest death toll and case count in the world.

However, it has a population of 330 million, much higher than other worst affected countries such as Spain and Italy.

Dr Deborah Birx, an expert on the White House Covid-19 task force, has said the country has "one of the lowest mortality rates in the entire world".

On a per capita basis, the reported US death rate of 1.4 is lower than Spain, Italy, France, Belgium and the UK.

Remember all the fuss about Muslim women wearing face coverings like burkas & niqabs?

Many in the US and overseas trying to ban them, Boris Johnson being one leader putting a stop to it. Well, now that we are all covering our faces with one thing or another, its mainstream now, don't hear much complaining going on about it. I find that ironic & really points out how racist or Islamophobic those objections truly were.
