Boris Johnson out of intensive care & Trump vs WHO

h/t Jo Nova, this report.

Mr Johnson has spent three days in hospital after being taken there “as a precaution” on Monday night.

The Prime Minister was then moved into intensive care but was not put on a ventilator.

His spokesman said Mr Johnson was in “extremely good spirits”.

Jo Nova reports on Trump’s challenge to the WHO.

Donald Trump has placed a “hold” on funding thWorld Health Organisation after they got so much wrong on Coronavirus.

Charlie Speerling, Breitbart

“We want to look into the World Health Organization because they really called it wrong,” Trump said. “They missed the call, they could have called it months earlier, they would have known, they should have known, and they probably did know.”

The president noted that the WHO actually criticized his travel ban from China that he set in late January.

“Such restrictions can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit,” WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said about travel bans just days after Trump banned travel from China.

    It makes sense to be extra careful with the health of the British Prime Minister.

    I’m glad he didn’t need to go on a ventilator which apparently is both very distressing and potentially dangerous.

  2. Rafe Champion

    It is also very labour intensive.

    Tedros Alphabet then makes statement about “politicizing the virus” while apparently sitting in the pocket of the Chinese government. Hypocrisy? Stupidity? Naivety? I guess history will judge. Does the UN have a competent person in any leadership role?

  4. I do hope that Trump begins de-funding the WHO, another useless UN organisation that is well past its use-by date.

    Amusing. Putting people in ventilators is dangerous?

    And we wonder why so many people are dying in NYC.

    Are they running out of ventilators yet?

  7. Petros

    It’s because he is black. It’s true. He told us so.

    Putting people in ventilators is dangerous?

    Most people who find themselves on invasive pressurised ventilators apparently do end up dead. IIRC, for China the mortality for that group was around 95%, while in the USA it is not all that much better.

    It’s worth keeping in mind though that these people’s systems were in the vast majority of cases already heavily compromised by multiple other health conditions.

    The ’cause of death always being COVID-19′ if this type of virus was found in them, of course, is another story altogether.

    On that note, it is ‘amusing’ (not really…) that Jo Nova, who is one of the leading voices of sanity regarding the climate scam, has apparently fallen hook, line and sinker for the virus ‘pandemic’ story.

    Given that the average mortality in Western countries is not noticeably increased this year in comparison to average, just how hard is it to come to the conclusion that the whole ‘pandemic’ is just another Chicken Little, ‘we’re all gonna die!’ madness of the crowds event?
    Yet Jo still considers herself to be a ‘skeptic’.
    An amazing type of mental dichotomy, right there.

    A “great summary” of the information regarding the COVID-19 scare and the effects of the lockdown in the USA by “Karl Denninger” from Market Ticker.
    Do have a browse through his posts on this topic and his conclusions. He backs those up with maths and data, not just an opinion.
    And then let’s talk about just why we are destroying our economy and going full Nazi to stop the sky from falling.

    Such restrictions can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit,” WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said about travel bans just days after Trump banned travel from China.

    I thought the WHO’s main brief is epidemiology, when did fear and stigma overtake that? Besides, isn’t it exactly what we have now, great fear with little public health benefit?

    WHO’s use by date expired sometime last year.

    Putting people in ventilators is dangerous?

    There is presently a lot of discussion in the medical community around the observation that people on CPAP are having better outcomes than people put on ventilators.

    A question for all Cats…How are the shyteholes faring?

    Choose any shytehole country with a ratty health system; where smoking and all manner of other “bad habits” are 100% normal, which has had loads of tourism to bring the virus in from abroad…and let’s see how many are dying of CV. OK, I’ll start….

    Morocco; 36 million people; 13 million tourists in 2019…a million or more before anyone had heard of CV in 2020….97 dead so far.

    Egypt; 98 million people; 14 million tourists in 2019 and a coupla million this year…..118 dead…the Egyptian government urges citizens to stay at home, imposing several measures to fight the outbreak, many people still wander around in the streets without caring about the virus, preoccupied with more important matters.

    Anyone wondering how this non-impact ca be?

    Ted Ross belongs to the magic people tribe. Criticism from whitey is raaaaacist!

    “The president noted that the WHO actually criticized his travel ban from China that he set in late January.

    “Such restrictions can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit,”

    … said WHO Director-General Rear Poop Deck Admiral Dr. Boutros Boutros Ad hominen Sambo Southpossum-asks Ghebreyesus, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas DaDa.

    He’s a privileged class black fella who is obliged to thieve from the nearest whitey with a quid – American taxpayers pay his handsome wages, 6 star world tourism costs and whatever else he scams out of the WHO books on the side – and to lie about everything. It’s cultural.

    How are the shyteholes faring?

    No need to look at total ‘shytehole’ countries.

    Belarus is an ex-Soviet state, run by an ex-Commie President for Life. It is a moderately developed country on the global scale, and is located in Europe. About 9.5 million people live there.

    It has tackled the ‘pandemic’ by having the President advise the population“to drink vodka and visit sauna at least twice a week.”
    No other measures of note have been taken.

    As of April 2, it had a total of 362 cases, with 4 deceased.

    Isn’t it ironic that an old Commie like Lukashenko can restrain himself from going full Nazi, unlike our own Dear Leaders?

    In contrast, New Zealand, with some 5 million people, has been on a total lockdown comparable to a mild version of martial law. They have had 1 death so far.

    NZ is not a ‘shytehole’ country, but its leaders are certainly behaving like one. As are most of our own.

    Nothing’s going to happen. “They” always make the same threats and then the organisation keeps receiving funding. It’s time the whole UN edifice was destroyed and the building in Turtle Bay turned into another Trump Tower.

    The whole world would literally be better off with handling the Wuhan virus if the WHO didn’t exist. A great deal of their advice has not only been in error but frequently the opposite of the approach that needed to be taken; I have no doubt many people are dead because of this organisation and the despicable Chinese paid terrorist supporting gollyw-g leader.

    Boris started taking hydroxychloroquine medications when he went to the ICU ward, they appear to bring relief fairly quickly.
