New Mexico health officials believe 1 is dead after livestock drug overdose

 

New Mexico Health officials believe at least one person has died in the state after taking ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

 

In a press conference Wednesday Dr. David Scrase issued a stern warning to New Mexicans to not take the anti-parasite drug sold at veterinary supply stores as a potential treatment for COVID-19.

 

“I don’t want more people to die of an ivermectin overdose in the next four weeks while we’re gathering data,” Scrase said. “I’d like people to know, if they’re out there taking it, it can kill them.”

 

Ivermectin is FDA approved prescription used to treat certain infections caused by internal and external parasites in humans. When used as prescribed in these cases, the drug is considered safe and well-tolerated.

 

However, ivermectin is not authorized or approved by the FDA for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19.

 

The drug is also used in veterinary formulations for use in large animals such as horses, sheep, and cattle. These veterinary versions can be highly concentrated and result in overdoes when used by humans.

Nebraska ‘Karen’ deliberately coughing at shoppers gets fired from job

 

Janene Hoskovec, dubbed ‘Coughing Karen’ now has to find a new gig after her antics at a grocery store went viral

 

Janine Hoskovec, of Arizona, is now out of a job after she was filmed coughing on a mother and daughter who were shopping at a Super Saver grocery store in Lincoln, Nebraska.

 

The incident occurred on Sept. 3 and quickly went viral after it was shared on Reddit under the title “Anti-Mask Karen Deliberately Coughing on me at South 27th Super Saver,” Newsweek reports. Hoskovec, 54, is accused of harassing shoppers because they were wearing masks amid the never-ending COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Hoskovec was seen coughing on the woman who is recording her, before calling other shoppers “sheep.” She also proudly proclaims that she doesn’t wear masks because: “I’m not sick and neither are you.”

 

The 13-year-old daughter of the woman who filmed the encounter shared the clip on TikTok. The girl’s father, who was not at the store, posted the video on Twitter and wrote, “She instigated the whole thing. Picked a mother/child to harass. Think they just wanted to get away. Lady kept following them. Some other folks stepped in. The Super Saver they were at didn’t really do anything – tell the lady to leave/wear mask, etc.. they just broke it up.”

 

At one point, Hoskovec smiles and claims her allergies are causing her to cough. Watch the moment via the Twitter embed below.

 

 

Hoskovec worked in Tempe at the Arizona branch of SAP, according to her now-deleted LinkedIn profile. The German software company responded to her internet fame in a statement posted to Twitter: “The health and safety of our employees and the communities in which we live and work are of utmost concern to us. We are taking the matter of an SAP employee incident very seriously and investigating the situation.”

 

On Wednesday, the company added: “We have reviewed the incident and can confirm that the individual in question no longer works for SAP.”

Alabama man dies of cardiac event after 43 hospitals with full ICUs turned him away

 

The family of a man who died of heart issues in Mississippi is asking people to get vaccinated for COVID-19 after 43 hospitals across three states were unable to accept him because of full cardiac ICUs. 

 

Ray Martin DeMonia died last week in Meridian, Mississippi. He was three days shy of his 74th birthday and a well-known native in Cullman, Alabama, his family said.  

 

DeMonia suffered from a cardiac event, and emergency staff at Cullman Regional Medical Center had to bring him to the nearest available bed, which was nearly 200 miles away at a Mississippi hospital.

 

In his obituary, DeMonia’s family urged people to get vaccinated against COVID-19. 

 

“In honor of Ray, please get vaccinated if you have not, in an effort to free up resources for non-COVID related emergencies,” the obituary read. “He would not want any other family to go through what his did.”

Anyone got ideas on how to prove or show people who don’t believe that hospitals are filling up in parts of the country?

 

Even in Pittsburgh, a family friend is a man and he was being treated at the city’s WOMEN’s hospital for C19 because all the other hospitals are full.

Did you miss my post above where an Alabama man died because he couldn't get into any of 43 hospitals?  Seems proof enough.

Tried telling a family member the other day that the vaccinated aren’t dying at the same rate as the unvaccinated. “No, that’s false, the vaccinated are dying just as much. You need to stop getting your news from Reddit”

 

ive never sent her any news articles from Reddit. I have only shared puppy pictures with her from Reddit…I guess she hates puppies too :(

Most of the anti-vax stuff (the early stuff) was traced back to a Russian disinformation campaign. I don’t think it’s far fetched to believe that this is just a continuation of those efforts, with some willing participants on the right. 
 

I think FB deserves some blame here. They’ve known about the false info and have done nothing to help curtail it. What a weapon that site has become.

anti-government, anti-authority, anti-academic, anti-intellectualism. 
 

they’ve been trained to hate anyone who tells them what to do, or tells them that they know better, or anyone that tries to explain why certain things are or should be. 
 

 

Decades of training a large portion of the country to “not trust” the majority of news, and to believe there’s this grand liberal conspiracy to turn us into socialists dependent on the government to go through our daily life….

 

honestly it’s not surprising. This result fits perfectly.

These people are insane.  Too bad they can't oblige these people and just OD them on ivermectin.

 

I can't imagine Lin Wood will have his law license much longer.

The fact that he had one at all is an indictment on the legal profession. Sorry PB, Mom and Dad.

Some just have ego problems/issues. They don't want people telling them what to do with their bodies.

 

My wife's cousin family is fully vaccinated (5 in the family) but their older son who is in his upper 20's has a strong stance and is against the vaccine. I tried to find out why from him but was shut down by the family members to just let it go right in front of his face. I was told he is bent in his way and you will not be able to drive any sense in him. 

 

This guy walks around like he is a tough guy and has always rebelled against his parents wishes. So there are people out there who think they are better and tougher and the virus can't touch them. I personally think he likes to go with people who show more resistance and hang with the minority crowd and be a rebel. He is selfish and always has been. People like these what makes tougher on other who are trying to do the right thing for themselves and for others. 

 

His mom called me yesterday and was asking when should they take the booster shot. At least rest of his family is doing the right thing.

Coronavirus-sniffing dogs unleashed at Miami airport to detect virus in employees

 

Cobra, a female Belgian Malinois, and One Betta, a Dutch shepherd, are 7-year-old dogs trained to detect the presence of the coronavirus. The keen-nosed canines are part of a pilot program at Miami International, one of the nation’s busiest airports — and the first to employ dogs in the battle against the coronavirus.

 

AAOgN8U.img?h=533&w=799&m=6&q=60&o=f&l=f

One Betta, a dutch shepherd.

 

Cobra and One Betta will spend their shifts sniffing the face coverings of employees passing through a checkpoint to detect the presence of the virus in sweat, breath and scents due to metabolic changes that the virus causes in the human body. If a dog signals the odor of the virus on a person, that individual will be asked to take a rapid coronavirus test, the airport said.

 

Can dogs detect the novel coronavirus? The nose knows.


“The big ‘aha’ for me was not only could the dogs be trained for this work, but that they were so accurate,” said Kenneth G. Furton, a provost and professor of chemistry and biochemistry at Florida International University.

 

The canines’ accuracy rivals traditional coronavirus tests and even some lab equipment, Furton said. He cited a double-blind study published by FIU, which found the animals achieved 96 to 99 percent accuracy rates for detecting the virus.

 

One Betta’s accuracy rate was 98.1 percent, while Cobra’s was an astonishing 99.4 percent.

Dang.  

 

Part of me wants to deploy thousands of such dogs, to all sorts of public venues.  

 

Part of me reflects that I'm frankly not a fan of using drug dogs to search people as a way to generate an excuse to perform another search.  

 

In short, I can see arguments both ways.
