According to an announcement made on Friday, March 20, 2020 from one of the leading doctors on President Donald Trump’s Wuhan virus task force, newly-released data indicate that men are more than twice as likely as women to die from the virus.
“From Italy we are seeing another concerning trend. The mortality in males seems to be twice in every age group of females,” Dr. Deborah Birx commented at the White House daily briefing.
“This should alert all of us to continue our vigilance to protect Americans that are in nursing homes.”
Birx also added that the data showed that younger people are still at risk of contracting the disease. However, they recover in most cases.
“We continue to review the data and we continue to see signs that individuals under 20, 19 and under may have severe disease but the majority have all recovered to date,” she said, emphasizing how containing the virus will require a community-wide effort.
“Frankly, this requires all the communities, and when you see the sacrifices that many Americans have made and service industries have made to close their restaurants and bars so the spread can stop and you understand how all Americans must have to make the same sacrifice,” she asserted.
She stressed that anyone can catch the virus.
“Finally, no one is immune. I sometimes hear people on radio or others talking about being immune to the virus. We don’t know if the contagion levels are different in age groups, but it is highly contagious to everyone,” she said.
“Do not interpret mild disease as lack of contagion or you are immune. The ability to fight the virus in a way that older people or people with existing medical conditions can’t.”
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
