    I’m a big believer in protecting my energy, so to that end, Jason Whitlock doesn’t exist in my universe. At all. However, far too often, Jason Whitlock Jason Whitlocks—and try as I may ignore his unique brand of clownery, I’m left with no choice but to acknowledge his Negro nonsense.

    Possible virus vulnerability discovered; about 20% of people with COVID-19 remain asymptomatic

    The spike protein on the novel coronavirus that helps it break into healthy cells has a tiny "pocket" that could make it vulnerable to antiviral drugs, researchers have discovered. In a paper published on Monday in Science, researchers note that common-cold-causing rhinoviruses have a similar pocket, and drugs that fit into the pocket by mimicking fatty acids like LA have lessened symptoms in human clinical trials. This suggests, they say, that drugs developed to target the pocket on the coronavirus spike protein might help eliminate COVID-19.

    Dr. Fauci to Sen. Paul: 'You are not listening...'

    Sen. Paul. asked Dr. Fauci if he had "second thoughts" about his mitigation recommendations, which include standing six feet apart and wearing masks, adding that despite those efforts, "our death rate is essentially worse than Sweden's." Fauci pointed out that Sweden's death rate is worse than other Scandinavian countries and said it was inappropriate to compare Sweden to the U.S. He said he stood by his mitigation recommendations. When Paul then said New York's high death rate showed that mitigation efforts fall short, Fauci dug in by replying, "You've misconstrued that Senator, and you've done that repetitively in the past," and went on to explain that New York has gotten the virus under control by following the mitigation guidelines.

    Dr. Fauci Says You Might Still Be Making This Big Mistake With Masks

    Masks have become a new part of everyday life for Americans this year. And with anything that is new, there is bound to be some confusion. For instance, many people may be unsure of when masks are completely necessary and which situations you can forgo a mask in–which can lead to many mistakes. In fact, Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), says that many people are still making this mask mistake: taking their mask off to talk to someone who can't hear or understand them.During an interview with Trevor Noah on the Sept. 21 episode of The Daily Show, Noah asked the health expert if it was necessary to wear a mask during a series of different scenarios. And when it came to talking to someone who couldn't hear you, Fauci said keeping your mask on was vital. Instead of taking your mask off, you should just "say it again and repeat it" until they can hear you, he said."Because when you then put down [your mask], you tend to speak louder with more force, and that's when all of the particles—if they're there, if you're infected—will come out," Fauci explained. "I would leave the mask on."After all, there's research that shows talking can easily spread the coronavirus. One study, published on May 13 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, found that speaking in a loud voice could introduce thousands of fluid droplets containing viral material into the air every second, droplets that could still be detected in the air for up to 14 minutes in an environment with stagnant air.There were other scenarios where Fauci said a mask was necessary, even if people don't think so. Some of the examples he gave were wearing a mask between courses when dining out and when in an empty elevator, as people can quickly come in.RELATED: For more up-to-date information, sign up for our daily newsletter.However, there may be some instances when you may not have to wear a mask, according to Fauci. For instance, if you're riding your bike out on the street, he says you don't have to wear a mask if you're not near other people. He did note that you should have your mask on you "in case you come into close contact with people on the outside."If you're indoors, however, Fauci said you should keep your mask on, no matter how socially distanced you are from other people—even if someone you're talking to asks you to speak up. And for more guidance from the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Fauci Says You Shouldn't Go Here Until a Year After a Vaccine.
