No but it has to be news so people understand. They are spending a lot of money on hand cleaner. Though, if you handle money as your job, you still would.

They have been wrong about so much, it might be good to review it for folks.

Masks don't work, but the law will tell you to wear them.

It lives a long time on surfaces, unless the testing was done so poorly that isn't true either.

Mainland China locked down for 16 days (aside from Wuhan Province) but the rest of the world has to shut down from 0 days to a year, or else.

HCQ doesn't work and it's dangerous...except that a lot of doctors know better, and say so.

Bill Gates never could keep viruses off his computers, but he is SURELY going to find a better vaccine for this virus.

Next, they'll be pitching Greta as an expert, and have a meet-up at Davos to plan saving the world.

Don't count on vaccine:

Vaccines developed previously for other types of coronavirus had failed to protect mucous membranes in the nose where the virus typically enters the body, he said.

The United States and other countries has not done enough to “forcibly isolate” people exposed to the virus, Haseltine said, but praised China, South Korea and Taiwan’s efforts to curb infections.

Haseltine said the US, Russia and Brazil – which rank first, second and third for infections – have done the worst.

They were wrong, often on critical info (human to human transmission, masks, spread).

How many mistakes do they have to ignore before they aren't 'authorities' anymore?

They are clearly to blame. Suppose Trump wins the election, then what? Get rid of all of "them": UN, FBI, WHO, CDC, Fauci, Europe, congress. Trump does not work with any of those entities.

They are, but everyone still shifts to blaming Trump.

The US IS at fault a bit, because they used to be the main funders of the WHO. Now that they are out, others can take responsibility.

But the WHO, now without Trump to blame, still has to appear to take its own mistakes seriously. I haven't seen that yet, so I'll assume they are just a normal, thriving team of bureaucrats.

That 'Dr. Tedros' guy...is he a medical doctor? Basketweaving? Virologist?

I think trading in hard absolutes is a mistake here. We should also remember that advisors, even scientific advisors, advise but it's politicians in power who make the actual decisions and allocate resources etc. Some masks are better than others in some situations - masks have never been a sure-fire way to not become infected or to not infect others. The primary transmission route is human-to-human but not the only transmission route. The spread of the infection in a population is a function of many things beyond transmission vectors and protective equipment - most of which regular folks have little or no control over. As I say, hard absolutes are unhelpful and misleading and one should take a hard look at anyone who might be forwarding those kinds of ideas.

Hard absolutes like 'trust the WHO' are indeed unhelpful.

How much cash support have you sent them, in past years (not counting your taxes)?

Do you think you'll send more this year, knowing what has transpired for them?
