White House Security Director Suffers Amputations, Three-Month Hospital Stay For Covid-19​

Jemima McEvoyForbes Staff

The director of the White House’s security office is reportedly recovering from Covid-19 after a difficult three-month hospitalization which involved the amputation of his right foot and lower leg, one of the most horrific cases to emerge out of a wave of infections that has swept through the White House.

KEY FACTS​

Bloomberg first reported the news of Crede Bailey’s sustained illness on Monday afternoon; the White House press office told Forbes it would not comment.

According to Bloomberg, Bailey, who contracted the virus in September, was hospitalized for three months and is now at a rehabilitation center where he will be fitted with a prosthetic leg.

Multiple outlets previously reported that Bailey was in critical condition, though it was only learned Monday that his battle against the virus claimed the big toe on his left foot, his entire right foot, and his lower leg, as told to Bloomberg by a friend, Dawn McCrobie.

McCrobie launched a GoFundMe page in mid-November to help raise money to pay off Bailey’s “staggering” medical bills.

“Let me say that Crede will NOT be happy I’ve done this as he is a proud man who is the first to help everyone else but would never ask for help himself,” says the fundraising page, adding that the “reality” is Bailey has a “long road ahead in rehab before he can go home.”

The Trump campaign did not respond to questions from Forbes about whether President Trump has—or plans to—contribute to the fundraiser, which has raised $35,842 of its $50,000 goal to date, with the highest donation so far at $1,000.

KEY BACKGROUND​

Though it’s not known where Bailey picked up the virus, he is one of a number of people in and around the White House to test positive for Covid-19.

Bloomberg reported that Bailey, who has been the White House’s chief security officer since June 2018, came down with Covid-19 over the Labor Day weekend—before the Sept. 26 nomination ceremony for Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, which is thought to have led to a wave of infections in the capitol. President Trump—and many of his allies—have routinely flouted guidelines to reduce the spread of the disease, with the president joking about and underplaying his own illness in October, for which he was hospitalized at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland. The president and other high-profile figures who have contracted the disease have benefited from access to treatment options unavailable to the general public when they do fall sick, including experimental drugs like Regeneron’s antibody cocktail and remdesivir, which at the time they were administered to Trump were not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

CRUCIAL QUOTE​

Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani was criticized recently for touting his “celebrity” status as means to access better treatment options. “Sometimes when you’re a celebrity, they’re worried,” said Giuliani during a radio interview after leaving the hospital last week. “If something happens to you, they’re going to examine it more carefully and do everything right.”


wiki:

Several media sources reported on October 7, 2020, that Bailey contracted COVID-19 in September, prior to the September 26 White House Rose Garden ceremony for the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, with which a number of COVID-19 infections appear to have been related. He entered hospital in late September and was severely ill.[5][6] Bloomberg News reported on November 1, 2020, that Bailey came down with the virus "over the Labor Day weekend" and that the White House had not acknowledged his illness.[7] By December 14, 2020, reports from friends indicated that he had been moved out of ICU to rehabilitation, but that he had lost his left big toe and right foot and lower leg to amputation.[8]

疫苗紧急叫停 多人接种后查出HIV阳性​


承担救命大任的疫苗,却也时时让人心惊胆战
新冠疫情持续恶化,就在刚刚,全球感染人数突破了7000万大关!挣扎在瘟疫苦海中的人们,无不对新冠疫苗这一救命稻草望眼欲穿。
然而,在加拿大等国相继批准辉瑞疫苗,引发全民狂欢之际,一些令人不安的坏消息正在浮出水面。

这款新冠疫苗由澳大利亚昆士兰大学和制药公司CSL合作研发,澳洲政府已斥资$10亿订购5100万剂。

澳洲总理莫里森(Scott Morrison)今天(12月11日)宣布,该新冠疫苗已经被政府放弃,“将从国家疫苗计划里排除”。

近日,一款被寄予厚望的新冠疫苗,出现了多名接种者查出HIV阳性的紧急状况,引发质疑与恐慌,导致整个疫苗研发项目被政府叫停。

这款新冠疫苗由澳大利亚昆士兰大学和制药公司CSL合作研发,澳洲政府已斥资$10亿订购5100万剂。

澳洲总理莫里森(Scott Morrison)今天(12月11日)宣布,该新冠疫苗已经被政府放弃,“将从国家疫苗计划里排除”。

研究人员称,接种该疫苗的部分受试者出现的HIV阳性,是假阳性。但即便如此,一旦大规模接种,多人出现HIV假阳性的情况,也将严重损害公众对新冠疫苗的信心。因此,这款疫苗的研究已被终止。

CSL公司表示,在216名试验参与者中,没有报告严重不良反应,因此该款疫苗具有“强大的安全性”,但是,试验结果显示,该疫苗在人体内诱发的抗体,会干扰艾滋病毒的检测诊断,并导致接种者在一些艾滋病毒检测中被查出假阳性。

该公司在声明中强调:“后续的检查证实,接种者体内没有艾滋病毒,只是在某些艾滋病毒检测中呈现假阳性。新冠疫苗不可能引起感染。”

一款新冠疫苗,为什么会导致接种者出现HIV假阳性这种可怕的情况?

澳洲病毒专家解释道,这款新冠疫苗的分子钳,是由一种HIV蛋白制成的,该HIV蛋白本身无害。这种分子钳,能稳定新冠病毒的突刺蛋白,促进人体产生免疫反应。

然而,这种用在疫苗中的HIV蛋白,却导致了一些接种者被查出HIV假阳性。

实际上,早在这款疫苗研发早期,就有疫苗专家警告过,将艾滋蛋白纳入新冠疫苗有很大的风险。然而,这些建议遭到了忽略。

“早期数据表明,这款新冠疫苗本身非常不稳定。总的来说,他看起来并不像是一款成功的疫苗。政府斥资亿万购买这种疫苗,令我们感到非常震惊。”疫苗专家称。

这款被本土疫苗项目的废止,给澳洲的总体新冠免疫计划造成了沉重打击。

不仅如此,澳洲也因计划给囚犯和肥胖症患者这两类人先注射首批疫苗,而受到争议。

有报道指出,澳洲政府此举,是想拿囚犯当“小白鼠”,因为即使囚犯在接种新冠疫苗中死亡,政府也无需承担过多舆论指责。
