So Scoop Shanahan of The Australian spots a graph on Twitter supporting his prejudice. Then in the fine tradition of Murdoch investigate journalism, they run the story without checking. It's supposed to be the Victorian government's own modelling but Scoop never asks the government.

Covid cases peak still weeks away 

SECRET MODELLING REVEALED 

- The Australian, 6 August, 2020


Only it's not. It's some random who thought he'd have a go at modelling. Scoop lifts it without attribution.


Embarrassing eh? Not if you're shameless.LOL

Aspirin Poisoning and the Flu

With no cure for the flu, many doctors prescribed medication that they felt would alleviate symptoms… including aspirin, which had been trademarked by Bayer in 1899—a patent that expired in 1917, meaning new companies were able to produce the drug during the Spanish Flu epidemic. 

Before the spike in deaths attributed to the Spanish Flu in 1918, the U.S. Surgeon General, Navy and the Journal of the American Medical Association had all recommended the use of aspirin. Medical professionals advised patients to take up to 30 grams per day, a dose now known to be toxic. (For comparison’s sake, the medical consensus today is that doses above four grams are unsafe.) Symptoms of aspirin poisoning include hyperventilation and pulmonary edema, or the buildup of fluid in the lungs, and it’s now believed that many of the October deaths were actually caused or hastened by aspirin poisoning.

Advising people to take that much aspirin, is sure to cause bleeds throughout the body. Some experts think aspirin may be a cause of macular direction. Drugs without side effects are like dogs without fleas. rare.

The worst seems to be behind them in the present wave of infections in VIC, but the deaths will keep going, or increasing. There'll be a few with guilty consciences over this debacle.

Andrews doing a lot of dodging and weaving, answering a simple question, "why did you choose to use private security firms". Spoke for five minutes without answering it.

I still can't figure out where Spanish flu went to. The explanation I get is that you either died or got immunity but that doesn't make sense to me. What about newborn babies? What about people who had not been exposed? Why didn't they get it? Herd immunity? But that would mean it's still out there but it never infects anybody.
