FDA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

covidThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced the following actions taken in its ongoing response effort to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • FDA and NIH have made updates to the CURE IDcrowd-sourcing app to make it easier for healthcare providers to share — via mobile device or website — their experiences treating COVID-19 patients who are unable to be enrolled in a clinical trial. CURE ID’sExternal Link Disclaimer web-based repository lets providers share experiences with novel uses of existing drugs in treating difficult-to-treat infectious diseases. Healthcare providers worldwide are encouraged to share their COVID-19 treatment experiences via CURE ID.
  • The FDA issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) to Illumina, Inc., for the first COVID-19 diagnostic test utilizing next-generation sequence technology. The FDA authorized the Illumina COVIDSeq Test for the qualitative detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA from respiratory specimens collected from individuals suspected of a COVID-19 infection by their healthcare provider. Next-generation sequencing is a type of diagnostic technology that can determine, among other things, the genetic sequence of a virus. Comparing sequencing results over time can help scientists understand if and how viruses mutate.
  • Testing updates:
    • To date, the FDA has authorized 131 tests under EUAs, which include 111 molecular tests, 19 antibody tests, and 1 antigen test.

The PLANDEMIC is nothing but a SCAM, AND THERE’S A PLETHORA of reasons why it was done…and the virtue signaling wearing of a mask that does more HARM than good to your immune system is utterly RETARDED ! #wakeup

Douglas, I agree! If wearing a mask is healthy, why haven’t we been wearing one forever? When we inhale, we inhale oxygen, when we exhale, we exhale CO2. If we’re wearing a mask, you are forced to breathe at least 1/3 of that CO2. That’s unhealthy because breathing in CO2 KILLS HEALTHY CELLS AND ESPECIALLY BRAIN CELLS! And being seniors, most of us can’t afford to kill any more brain cells. It’s just Common Sense!

I learned when I was a little girl to always hold my breathe for at least 10 seconds before breathing in again so the carbon dyoxid you just breath out has chance to go out into the room and away from your lungs
