California doctors’ dubious coronavirus claims condemned by health experts

A widely shared local television video of last week’s news conference, which was posted on YouTube, reached more than 5 million views and was amplified by Elon Musk and Fox News, where Dr. Dan Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi appeared on primetime shows two nights in a row.

The video has since been taken down by YouTube for violating the platform’s policy on misinformation, a YouTube spokesperson said.

The doctors, who are not epidemiologists and who own and operate urgent care centers in the Bakersfield area, held the news conference on April 22 to share their conclusions about the results of 5,213 coronavirus tests at their clinics, extrapolating their findings to the California population as a whole.

“Do we need to still shelter in place? Our answer is emphatically no. Do we need businesses to be shut down? Emphatically no. Do we need to test them and get them back … Read More

Coronavirus declared global health emergency by WHO

Media captionDr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: “We must all act together now to limit further spread”

The new coronavirus has been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization, as the outbreak continues to spread outside China.

“The main reason for this declaration is not what is happening in China but what is happening in other countries,” said WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The concern is that it could spread to countries with weaker health systems.

Meanwhile, the US has told its citizens not to travel to China.

The state department issued a level four warning – having previously urged Americans to “reconsider” travel to China – and said any citizens in China “should consider departing using commercial means”.

China has said it will send charter plans to bring back Hubei province residents who are overseas “as soon as possible”.

Kim Jong Un: Trump adds to confusion over North Korea leader’s health status

Asked about Kim’s status on Monday, Trump said, “I can’t tell you, exactly — yes, I do have a very good idea, but I can’t talk about it now. I just wish him well.” But later in the same press conference the President told reporters, “He didn’t say anything last Saturday. Nobody knows where he is so he obviously couldn’t have said it. This is breaking news that Kim Jong Un made a statement on Saturday. I don’t think so.”

Trump seemed to be referring to Kim’s message to workers in the country published in North Korean state-media Sunday but it was not immediately clear.

After CNN’s report published, National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien made clear the Trump administration is keeping a close eye on developments regarding Kim.

“We’re monitoring these reports very closely,” said during an interview with Fox News last Tuesday. “As you know, North Korea is a
