Stock markets on Thursday closed relatively flat, erasing gains made in early trading after reports surfaced that the results of a study on Gilead Sciences drug remdesivir found it did not improve recovery or lower fatality rates for COVID-19 patients.

As I wrote in the Trump thread, this was appalling to witness. In a world and system that was sane, he would be deemed mentally unfit to lead from such a position and removed from office immediately.

Ah that clever cookie. Why did we not think of that!

Sad thing is some of his voters will probably think it’s an awesome idea and that the fact we’re not all doing that is because the Democrats don’t want us to!

Probably a handful will try it out and we can see Darwinism at work.

The Swiss government-pathetically slow to start a lockdown and pathetically slow to finish it. A govt governed by fear and insecurity!

Only that isn't what President Trump said.

Is it any wonder that trust in the press is at an all time low?

Only it is. Quote:

“And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute,” Trump said. “One minute! And 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. So, that you’re going to have to use medical doctors with, but it sounds interesting to me.”

Trust in the press in the US may be at an all-time low (is that a fact?), but I doubt it's only because they quote a stupid politician. A polarizing president and extremely partisanship help. Plus...stupid politicians sell news, so a very zealous coverage of Trump's quotes sells, and you see a lot of news about his administration. The fact that the majority has or generates negative sentiment is closely correlated to his terrible administration, not to terrible coverage.

"Supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it's ultraviolet or just very powerful light ... supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do, either through the skin or in some other way?"

"I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute.
Is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning, because you see it gets in the lungs, and it does a tremendous number on the lungs?"

-Trump

This whole virus thing is overblown. A few hours on the tanning bed, take some UV pills, and brush out your lungs with bleach.

Back to work in the morning!

That's the point though, often the Press don't quote. They add spin and in some cases outright lie. So in the end people end up making comments like the one below which is so far removed from what President Trump said.

Far removed? It is at about the same level of intelligence and professionalism as Trump's quote.

edit: scratch that. It is at a much higher level of intelligence than Trumps's quote.

'If we had followed Sweden, we would have higher immunity': Norway Prof

One of Norway's most eminent epidemiologists has questioned Norway's decision to impose a heavy lockdown, arguing that the country might have been better adopting a strategy closer to that of Sweden.

"There is a weakness in the strategy," Eiliv Lund, emeritus professor at the University of Tromsø, told the VG newspaper. "If we had done what the Swedes have done, we would have had a higher infection rate, and thus a higher immunity."
