FEBRUARY 7: Coronavirus was the cover story in the Medical Examiner.
FEBRUARY 26 Tweet by Pres. Trump: "Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC (Comcast) & @CNN are doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus look as bad as possible, including panicking markets, if possible. Likewise their incompetent Do Nothing Democrat comrades are all talk, no action. USA in great shape!"
(Yes, he said Caronavirus.)

Relative to the fact-checking post below, take a look at this 2-minute post from the New England Journal of Medicine comparing droplet spray while merely talking (or yelling) with and without a mask, in real time and slo-mo.
Fact-checking the claims that face masks are unsafe and ineffective.
An article that has been widely shared on social media warns healthy people against wearing face masks during the COVID-19 pandemic, citing alleged risks. But experts say masks can help curb the spread of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, and that the article contains multiple false or mi...
HIPAA does not apply to anything remotely connected to wearing a mask in public, and the ADA only in extremely rare circumstances. If you see this excuse for not wearing a mask, it's bogus.
"You keep using that law. I do not think it means what you think it means."
You've seen this image? The now-famous portrait of coronavirus was created by Alissa Eckert, a 2006 graduate of Augusta University’s medical illustration program, the oldest graduate medical illustration program in the country and the oldest continuously accredited graduate program in the world.
Why do we have way more coronavirus cases than India, where the population is the same as ours, plus 1 billion? That's just one of our topics this time. Click away for more.
In this issue we take a look at why some countries have been hit hard in this pandemic while others seem to have gotten off easy. As Nurses Month continues, we also salute a few exceptional nurses who are in the forefront of the pandemic response at Augusta University, a key provider of COVID care h...
HEADLINE: WHO VETOES SOCIAL DISTANCING
Fact. This is a sneak peak from tomorrow's issue of the Medical Examiner. The World Health Organization says "social" distancing is the very opposite of what we should be doing. Socially, we should be closer than ever. Many people are totally isolated and have been for weeks. To help stop the spread of disease, what we should be doing is PHYSICAL distancing. That is a more accurate term and one which WHO endorses.
Georgia has enacted left-lane legislation since this video was produced.
A message to the slow left lane drivers of the world:
Born on this very day exactly 200 years ago, she needs no introduction.
Some of these numbers boggle the mind.
Live world statistics on population, government and economics, society and media, environment, food, water, energy and health.
The Georgia Dept. of Public Health website has updated its information since this morning. Confirmed cases in Georgia have been tracking downward since their peak on April 22. Deaths in Georgia peaked on April 16 with 62, but they have added to recent death statistics as follows:
May 7: 8 (not 5)
May 8: 10 (not 4)
May 9: 2 (not zero)
May 10: 5 (not zero)
May 11: 2 (not zero)

So what I'm hearing from the White House is that WHO should have figured this thing out by no later than COVID-7 or 8.
Hope this is true.
It's amazing how much good and useful information we can pack into 16 pages - and still leave room for our precious advertisers and their important messages. Hope you enjoy it all, the articles and especially now, the ads too. #supportsmallbusiness
Some of the world's best reporting on coronavirus is in this issue of this newspaper! It will probably go viral, which is unfortunate. It all starts with the canine connection we make on page 1, which is semi-fascinating (some would say fully fascinating). Inside, we have expert opinions on why peop...
You've seen those Jardiance ads, right? It's a drug designed to treat type 2 diabetes. The side effects include a "very serious" infection of the perineum. What if - just by chance - the pharmacologists who developed this drug were told about that particular side effect on April 1?
