Earlier last week President Trump said he needed a decision from North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper as to whether the Republican National Convention could proceed as scheduled. Trump told reporters in the White House that, “We need a fast decision from the governor. He’s been acting very, very slowly and very suspiciously, but we’ll find out. We’re talking about a very short period of time. . . . I would say within a week that certainly we have to know. if he can’t do it, if he feels he’s not going to do it, all he has to do is tell us. And then we’ll have to pick another location. And I tell you a lot of locations want it.”
Last month President Trump announced that he would be freezing funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) due to their misinformation and pro-China bias concerning the recent coronavirus pandemic. When the virus initially appeared in Wuhan WHO praised China’s handling of the situation and commended China’s “transparency” even as it was becoming evident that China had silenced whistleblowers and journalists.
Coronaviruses are a type of virus that causes a range of illnesses including common cold to more severe diseases such as MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) or SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). The recent Coronavirus outbreak is named COVID-19 by the WHO, referring to the type and the year of origin of the virus.
Currently, there are over 4.2 million cases of coronavirus and over 286,000 deaths around the world. As economies start to re-open around the globe, a second wave of coronavirus continues to be a possibility. China just reported new cases, including 3 in Wuhan. Coronavirus was first observed in Wuhan in the fall of 2019. There is still no vaccine or specific protocol to treat patients with the virus.
As some U. S. states creep out of lockdown in early May, the spread of COVID infection has leveled off in the nation as a whole, but the trend in new cases widely varies among the ten largest states (see accompanying infographic).
Coronavirus continues to be the main topic of discussions around the world. Currently, there are over 3.3 million infected and over 234,000 deaths around the globe. US intelligence agencies are investigating the origin of the Coronavirus and are not ruling out that the coronavirus leaked from the lab in Wuhan. A French Nobel prize winner and virologist already made an educated statement proving the COVID-19 is a man made virus and that Chinese scientists were working on the AIDS vaccine (since the virus does have some of the HIV particles) and the virus was released.
The disagreement between Guatemala and the United States due to the deportation of migrants in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic is now public. For weeks, there were serious suspicions about some of the Guatemalan migrants returned by the US authorities. They were infected after unsuccessfully trying to enter the country with the highest number of cases and deaths from covid-19 in the world.
It is clear in many countries the peak of the coronavirus passed. Nevertheless, the spread of the coronavirus remains a concern and it is possible a second wave of COVID-19 could emerge. Many scientists internationally are racing to create a viable vaccine and to decipher the virus mutations in order to create proper protocol purely tailored to coronavirus treatment.
At present, the number of infected with coronavirus is surpassing 3 million and over 205,000 deaths around the globe. Even though many nations seem to have passed their peak of the pandemic. The concern now is the possible second wave of COVID-19. On April 26th, US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron discussed the need to form the World Health Organization (WHO) and the convening of the conference of leaders of the “five” permanent members of the UN Security Council.
A new propaganda campaign by Russia is claiming that coronavirus was created by the Deep State to hinder the chances of President Donald Trump to be re-elected. It is not surprising that Russia continues its efforts to spread propaganda and meddle into US elections via social media. In the United States, the “deep state” is a conspiracy theory which suggests that collusion and cronyism exist within the US political system and constitute a hidden government within the legitimately elected government.
The FCO is advising UK citizens to avoid non-essential travel for thirty days. Considering the present COVID pandemic, international travel ban and restrictions are elevating at an alarming rate globally. The recent Foreign Office statement states that the advice is in reaction to the increasingly uncertain situation.
Boston Dynamics announced on April 23rd that their four legged robot Spot will be going to one of the Boston hospitals to aid the staff in caring for patients with Coronavirus. Boston Dynamics has ambitious plans to expand and implement its robot base in many areas of healthcare, as well as providing open access software — so that all hospitals in the world can use such electronic assistants if they want.
Telehealth is expanding by leaps and bounds during the COVID-19 crisis. Due to the critical need for remote treatment, both the public and private sector are working to increase its accessibility. All the benefits it offers are making a big difference in health care, and unquestionably, it will save lives during the outbreak.
Coronavirus created a lot of challenges from the economic and security prospective. China’s failure to provide accurate data and contain the virus caused a lot of losses. The virus is claimed to be man made and such findings are corroborated by a Nobel Prize winning French virologist. China is facing a backlash for being the cause of the coronavirus pandemic spread around the world. Japan recently announced funding to aid their companies in moving manufacturing out of China and back to Japan or alternatively to another country.
A new research paper has been published pertaining to the creation of an algorithm that is able to quickly identify the mutations of COVID-19. Now the effectiveness of quarantine can be tangibly tracked and evaluated. Labs that are working to develop a vaccine, and some that are in testing phases, will be evaluate their vaccines using this new technology.
Coronavirus has been on the forefront of the majority news outlets around the world. Currently, there are over 2.4 million cases around the world and over 165,000 deaths.
A majority of countries are starting to slowly reopen their economies and ease their state of emergency restrictions. US President Donald Trump announced over the weekend a reopening strategy with phase 1 and phase 2. In the US governors are the ones who will decide when to reopen individual states for business. Japan is quite the opposite and only now declared a State of Emergency and a mandatory quarantine.
All eyes are on China as it is now believed that the Novel Coronavirus originated in a Wuhan lab. US officials are conducting a full scale investigation in China’s possible release and cover up of the virus that has brought the global economy to its knees.
Given this, I thought now a pertinent time to explore another controversial Chinese venture, the Belt and Road Initiative. On the surface the initiative, which aims to fund and oversee infrastructure projects in some of the world’s poorest countries, seems like a genuine commitment to improving the quality of life for many people around the world.
The numbers continue to increase in US and it is predicted that in many US states the peak of the coronavirus will not hit fully until May. Hence, it could mean the shut down of all non essential businesses can continue into May. In Canada, it seems the closures will last until at least June 30th. However, the situation is being accessed daily.
Coronavirus quarantines around the world have intensified the need to work from home and the utilization of online tools to complete tasks. Many unfortunate people got laid off during coronavirus or were unable to continue their job duties, such as in the hospitality and service industries. For millions of professionals the only way to sustain employment and productivity is to work from home. However, there are needed tools to achieve such tasks.
Coronavirus continues to be on all the news around the world. Currently, there are over 2.2 million cases and over 150,000 deaths. Some countries such as Spain starting to ease the social distancing and reopening slowly businesses. In North America the coronavirus pandemic continues to roar.
China continues to resist providing any additional information pertaining to coronavirus vital data that would help the world be able to decipher its origin. Originally, a now deceased doctor who was voicing concern about the unknown virus in Wuhan was accused by the Chinese government of false statements and he was even given a warning. After his death, he was exonerated, because China’s social scoring system effects the whole family.
Music is the language of mankind. Bijan Norouz is an Iranian Composer, Musician, Entrepreneur and founder of Bijan Norouz Worldwide Music Co. that main activities include promoting scientific and conceptual music to expand astronomy and music engineering, Researching and Developing (R&D) music in space technologies, and creating music networking in future is for Space Cities, Space Habitat and for more people to know about cosmic music.
At present, the number of infected with coronavirus passed the two million mark around the globe. Fortunately, stock markets are slowly rising around the world, which is a bit of a positive during the current difficult economic times. Meanwhile, the US is in the midst of a presidential election campaign scheduled for this fall. As of this week, Russia has ramped up its efforts to use social media propaganda and increase its internet presence.
Coronavirus continues to the major issue facing the world, with Spain reopening its economy and China as well. However, China is reporting new cases of so called reinfection, but claims the virus has been reimported. At this time there are claims of three types of coronavirus roaring around the globe. The numbers of infected is close to 2 million with over 100,000 deaths reported.
Coronavirus continues to dominate all the news. As April 10th, the number of infected around the world surpassed 1.6 million and the death toll reached over 100,000. The pandemic continues to cripple global economies and quarantines around the world continue. There are also disturbing cases of possible reinfection with the virus in South Korea. However, a new research paper believes there are three types of Coronavirus around the world, so it could be plausible people are getting “reinfected” with a different strain.
Coronavirus continues to be the main news around the world. As of April 8th, there are over 1.5 million cases world wide and over 82,000 deaths reported. The pandemic is not slowing down at all. The only place that seems to be free of new cases is China. However, China had a head start, since the virus originated in China in the first place.
The number of infected and mortality form the coronavirus continue to rise. Thus far, the COVID-19 pandemic around the world has not been contained. However, according to Chinese media Wuhan is lifting its restrictions and starting Wednesday April 8th the high speed trains will start running again.
In reaction to the coronavirus quarantines, Canada and the US are implementing emergency funds to help with large numbers of unemployment. The quarantine continues in the most US states and in Canada. As of April 6th there are 1.3 million cases and over 74,000 deaths around the world. In the US nearly 400,000 are infected. The states that have the largest numbers of infected are New York. Louisiana and Michigan.
Coronavirus continues to be a global pandemic. Many nations imposed quarantines and are dealing with a shortage of medical supplies. As of April 7th, the death toll around the world is over 79,000. One of the hardest hit and less prepared is Italy. The Italian media admited recently that their coverage of doom and gloom may have contributed to mass hysteria and fear in the nation.
As of April 7th, there are over 1,390,511 infected cases of coronavirus around the world according to the John Hopkins interactive tool. Thus far there haven’t been any drugs to specifically treat coronavirus. Many doctors around the world are trying to treat infected with anti-malaria drugs and also AIDS drugs. The same protocols were used during SARS.
Fear of coronavirus is spreading across the world not only because of the mass casulty but also because eminent personalities such as the UK PM Mr. Boris Johnson who have the best medical facilities of the world at their disposable are still being infected with this disease and has been admitted to the ICU in London hospital today.
The Kremlin warned the nation to be ready for a global economic crisis due to coronavirus. Russian numbers of infected continue to increase. In the US, it is now recommended for everyone to wear a mask or a scarf while outdoors.
British Queen Elizabeth II compared the coronavirus pandemic to World War II. Currently, the global crisis has a unique set of factors and certain circumstances. It is a multidimensional crisis that is triggered by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Imbalances continue to expand, including manufacturing. Hence, there is a growing issues of import and export around the world.
The budget deficits, what the developed nations across the globe get to experience shortly, are an unrestrained attempt to pour more money into the economy at the expense of the state budget. This will create a competition in the public debt market and an increase in interest rates.
The public debt of many nations around the world is skyrocketing, amounting to more than their annual GDP. Debt servicing is already becoming a serous issue. This could be a setting for mass default.
Many economies also suffer from insufficient economic diversification. The global economy is widely acceptable when everyone works according to equal rules in their niches of the economic process. The decline in the service sector, which in some countries accounts for 60-70% of the economy, almost guarantees huge turbulence in the economy and, as a result, sharp downturns. All this is taking place under conditions where free trade is partially blocked thanks to the sanctions policy of the US and the EU.

There is also a liquidity crisis generated by many of the previous imbalances. This is caused by problems with the distribution of financial assets and the lack of adequate control over the distribution of financial flows.
There are also unemployment issues that continue to be a problem for many nations. In US and Canada the numbers continue to increase rapidly.
Also, the Russia-Saudi oil war is distorting the oil market.
As with anything the coronavirus pandemic will end, likely by the end of summer. A majority of the developed nations governments are hoping the economies will return back to normal after the pandemic subsides.
The economy after pandemic will minimize human participation in production processes and interaction with consumers. In such cases, a person will still be needed as the creator of such systems and structures, or as their controller. This change is already noticeable, as certain bank chains in the US are installing artificial intelligence bank machines, which eventually will phase out tellers. The roll out is coinciding with coronavirus closures and a skeleton staff.
It is for certain the pandemic will change how we view certain recreational activities and service industries. Things might never be the same.

The number of coronavirus infected has surpassed one million around the world. Meanwhile, the Russian company Hoversurf is working on a flying drone ambulance. Hoversurf, is an urban air mobility technology company based in Russia. The company presented its improved hover bike model at the Dubai Air Show in 2019. One of the first Hoversurf models:
Coronavirus continues to be a global pandemic, effecting global economies, while also being responsible for many deaths around the world. Currently, there are over 1.2 million cases globally. In the United States there are 336,958 cases of infection as of April 5th. There are stay at home orders across the US and Canada. This weekend has also been alarming with the number of US deaths reaching over 8,000.
There is a race around the world to create a successful vaccine against coronavirus and repurposing existing classes of drugs to use for coronavirus treatment. According to the John Hopkins live tracker the number of infected around the globe crested over one million, with rover 50,000 reported dead. How many cases were concealed by China remains unanswered.
Plagues – or epidemics and pandemics, as they are called in the modern world – have been around since at least 10,000 years ever since our ancestors started farming and developing the first semi-permanent settlements. These have always had the upper hand as they preyed on our strengths and turned them into our weaknesses. Like a genie in a bottle, once they are out, we cannot get them back in – but what we can do is to take every measure possible to limit the damage. With the coronavirus out on the loose, that is all that is to do now.
Thus far, the US is going through difficult times to prevent further spread of the coronavirus pandemic, including closures of non-essential businesses and even parks and playgrounds. The US administration announced the measures would continue at this time until April 30th. However, they could be extended depending on the virus trajectory. In Toronto, Canada all social functions and city events are cancelled until June 30th.
The world is trying to fight the coronavirus pandemic. In North America, both the US and Canada extended directives of social distancing until the end of April. Russian President Vladimir Putin just gave everyone who is not considered essential business a week off with pay. However, as much as US President Donald Trump tries to be upbeat and claim by June 1st the economy will jump start, this is not feasible for a myriad of reasons and it is highly unlikely it will rebound by the fall of 2020.
Coronavirus is a global pandemic. Every news outlet is reporting that a majority of nations are effected around the world. The pandemic has negatively impacted global economies and caused many countries to close their borders and issue “shelter in place” orders. The virus rapidly spreading across the US and Italy has a horrid death toll from this. The world is reeling from the pandemic.
The coronavirus pandemic has been crippling a myriad of nations from financial sectors to logistics chains. At this time, the US has a fast growing numbers of COVID-19 infected people across the nation. The death toll hints at catastrophic conditions. Italy can’t cope by themselves with this virus. Russian military personnel are going to be working in the new hospital in Bergamo, Italy to help with the national catastrophe. There are talks about the US military deploying to the Canadian border to prevent migrants from crossing and possibly spreading the virus.
Coronavirus has been on every news channel and every online outlet, as many US States are under voluntary 14 days self quarantine and shelter in place orders.
The major developments around the Globe related to coronavirus:
- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day shutdown would begin March 25th extending restrictions to the entire nation of more than 1.3 billion.
- The Tokyo Summer Olympics have been postponed until 2021.
- The rate of infection in New York is doubling every three days, with confirmed cases topping 25,000. More than 50,000 cases have been confirmed nationwide.
- The number of confirmed cases around the world passed 400,000, suggesting that the global pace of infection continues to increase. Italy reported 743 new deaths, bringing the country’s total to 6,820. France became the fifth country to mark more than 1,000 coronavirus deaths.
Currently, coronavirus has been the main topic of discussions and news around the globe. Coronavirus is a global pandemic that originated in Wuhan, China. Many countries around the world closed their borders, implemented quarantines and limited movement. According to John Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center there are 367,457 reported cases of the virus around the world and over 16,000 deaths. In the US alone the number of infected people has exceeded 40,000.
The situation around the globe pertaining to coronavirus continues to escalate. The number of infected continues to rise, including the death toll. At this time, even high ranking politicians are testing positive for COVID-19, the latest being Senator Rand Paul in the US, who tested positive on March 22. As everyone is aware by now, the coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China. Due to the Chinese regime’s failure to identify and contain the virus immediately, the virus spread around the world. Additionally, nations around the globe did not suspend travel in time and it became a full blown pandemic.
Many US States and Cities issued closure orders in an attempt to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The list of state and city orders according to USA Today:
- Missouri’s two largest cities issued stay-at-home orders Saturday. The St. Louis mandate, which also applies to St. Louis County, begins Monday, and the one for Kansas City and its metro area goes into effect Tuesday.
- New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell directed residents to stay at home.
- San Miguel County, Colorado, is under a shelter-in-place order until April 3.
- Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, is under a shelter-in-place order until April 7.
- Blaine County, Idaho, is under a shelter-in-place order.
- Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday announced that all New York residents must stay home “to the maximum extent possible.”
- The State of California is under a stay at home order.
- Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced a “stay-at-home” that will last until at least April 7.
- In Connecticut, Gov. Ned Lamont on Friday announced an executive order directing all nonessential businesses and not-for-profit entities to close.
- Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Friday told residents to stay home, calling the directive “both an order and a public awareness campaign.”
- New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced Saturday that he would be ordering residents to stay at home.
- Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordered all “non-life-sustaining” businesses to close.
Currently, a majority of nations around the globe are battling the coronavirus pandemic. However, there is another battle that needs rapid attention and response. It is the cyber battle around fake news and misinformation. Russia and China have been busy spreading misinformation such as the false statements from Chinese government representatives that the US brought coronavirus to Wuhan, China.
Russia has amplified its own misinformation attacks against the US. Meanwhile, China continues its defamation narrative (with Russia’s aid), issuing false statements about the US bringing coronavirus to Wuhan, China. A majority of Russian news outlets picked up an article from CNBC titled “Bank of America says the recession is already here: ‘Jobs will be lost, wealth will be destroyed.’” The article published on March 19th by Michelle Meyer discussed a full-scale financial crisis.
Currently, Canada has 1,087 cases of Coronavirus. Sadly, there has been 12 deaths reported due to the virus. The first case of Coronavirus in Canada was a 56-year-old man presented to our Emergency Department in Toronto with fever and non-productive cough. He arrived in Canada one day earlier after returning from a 3-month visit to Wuhan, China. Wuhan was the epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic.
An astonishing announcement was made on Russia Channel 1 on the evening of March 18 during a live show by the chief editor of Nazavisimaya Gazeta Konstantin Remchukov. He claimed to have directly received an email from China requesting a stop to any information related to coronavirus originating in China. Since the Russian government owns Russia Channel 1, it is an unprecedented comment that was made live. Especially, when Russia and China tend to collaborate on propaganda efforts against the US and the West.
The Coronavirus pandemic has prompted Spain to nationalize health care. Currently Spain has 11,826 infected and thus far 533 deaths. It means that private clinics will hand over their equipment and the reins of power. The Spanish government just approved the inclusion of state supervision in all health sectors, meaning that private health care workers will have to hand over all power to the government to manage all health services.
Chinese molecular biologists from the Air Force Military University and the Institute of Biotechnology in Beijing claim the COVID19 coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) can enter human cells not only through the ACE2 receptor, like a number of other viruses, but also through another protein.
The scientists state:
“We are well aware that the virus uses the ACE2 receptor to enter the body. However, since it is often found in the cells of the heart, kidneys, and genitals, fighting the virus through this protein can negatively affect these organs. We have isolated another receptor whose molecules are attacked by the virus. This expands the possible Arsenal of tools for suppressing infection.“
Currently, Canada has 415 confirmed cases of coronavirus in all 10 provinces. In an official announcement Canada closed its borders to all non-citizens. The only exemption is US citizens. Starting March 18th, all international flights will be restricted to airports in four major Canadian cities: Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Nevertheless, commercial vehicles are still allowed travel through Canada/US border check points.
