This is depressing:
The World Health Organization says a new polio outbreak in Sudan is linked to an ongoing vaccine-sparked epidemic in Chad — a week after the U.N. health agency declared the African continent free of the wild polio virus.
In a statement this week, WHO said two children in Sudan — one from South Darfur state and the other from Gedarif state, close to the border with Ethiopia and Eritrea — were paralyzed in March and April. Both had been recently vaccinated against polio. WHO said initial outbreak investigations show the cases are linked to an ongoing vaccine-derived outbreak in Chad that was first detected last year and is now spreading in Chad and Cameroon.
Given that the Polio Vaccine has been around for a while I’d be rather suspicious of the folks who are making and disturbing this batch.
But let’s fund the WHO, they do such a good job.
Some big news from this administration concerning WHO funding
You would think that it would be a no-brainier to refuse to pay for an organization that has not only misinformed the world and has functioned as a subsidiary of a communist state responsible for shutting down the world by at best careless cultural practices and at worst careless release of a biological weapon.
Well if you’re a democrat or from the left that is apparently not the case to wit:
That’s from David Axelrod and being a person who has actually run a winning campaign here is more.
Yeah let’s just forget that at the time President Trump made this suspension WHO was still saying publicly no human to human spread and you guys were calling him a alarmist and a racist.
As Glenn Reynolds has said repeatedly lately “It’s easy to tell who’s on the payroll, or at least on the team.” The real question to me is “How long have they been on that team?” I suspect quite a while.
And remember these are some of the more sane reactions to the President’s move but sane or not all of them are going to be part of the Trump Campaign ad blitz in the fall reminding people what side the left was on during this Pandemic, although frankly given that people are paying more attention then they ever had it might not be as necessary.
I’ll give the last word to Robert George
