Thousands of New Year’s Eve revelers celebrated in Wuhan, China on Thursday, ringing in the New Year without consideration for the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. China claims to have gained control of the virus’ spread following the initial outbreak in the country’s Hubei province in late 2019, but experts doubt the veracity of the information released on the pandemic in the country and suspect it proved far more deadly than the Chinese Communist Party claims.
AFP News’ coverage of the New Year’s Eve celebration revealed its size and structure, which was the opposite of “socially distanced.”
China is the only major country in the world to improve the state of its economy in 2020, a development stemming from the onset of the virus months before it arrived in other countries.
Global observers have expressed concern to see citizens of Wuhan, which was crippled by the coronavirus as early as December 2019, party in packed water park dance gatherings earlier this year. The notion of social distancing appears to have been placed by the wayside within months of the coronavirus’ ascendance in Wuhan, its citizens returning to normalcy.
As thousands celebrated in Wuhan, the scenes of major cities in the Western world were very different. New York City’s Times Square was entirely empty, contrasting with the city’s traditional New Year’s celebrations.

Something’s gone very wrong to see thousands of revelers mass in the thousands in China, where the coronavirus originated, whereas the streets and squares of major cities in the United States continue to be emptied by the deadly China virus.
Biden COVID Advisor Paid to Sponsor Mask Brand Claimed Product “Deactivates” Coronavirus
This could represent a serious ethics violation.
An incoming Biden White House coronavirus advisor promoted a brand of mask he claims “deactivates” coronavirus, claiming on his personal podcast that Livinguard masks offer more protection to their wearers than other products.
There should be an immediate federal ethics investigation of incoming Biden covid advisor @ASlavitt for his claim that a mask he was pitching (for money, see below) “deactivates” the coronavirus—with no disclaimer about claims not being evaluated by FDA. pic.twitter.com/v5lnr3jZZh

“All masks can curb the spread of COVID-19. Why I like the Livinguard masks, and why I wear them, is because they actually deactivate coronavirus thanks to their incredible patented technology that’s been shown to mitigate the spread of microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.”
Slavitt confirmed that Livinguard is a “sponsor” to him, in some capacity.
This awesome mask / sponsor we’ve been wearing & talking about on #InTheBubble has given us permission to give away 100 on Twitter! Antiviral Technology, washable and reusable. In the comments by 8/21 just mention your 3 fave episodes+follow @livinguard if you want to qualify pic.twitter.com/guQJpPaj4v

Livinguard masks can be washed and reused, and they sell for as much as $30 on the company’s website. Various manufacturers of facemasks have made claims of health superiority as it pertains to their product.
Slavitt’s claim about the masks is not evaluated by the FDA, and the questionable nature of his claims could potentially incur the scrutiny of the health organization.
The former Obama administration official’s claim that the masks “deactivate” COVID is highly questionable. Experts generally agree that masks are more effective at preventing asymptomatic carriers from spreading the virus than they are in protecting the wearer from it, and Slavitt’s language implies the material of the mask is more effective in neutralizing COVID molecules than other fabric and cloth surfaces. Such a claim would represent a dramatic development in the fight against COVID, and it’s very likely the material would be adopted en masse to deter further spread of the disease.
