The Government has responded to Dispatches’ 13 claims of failings in their handling of Covid-19 (Picture:Andrew Parsons / No10 Downing St)In a response to Dispatches’ 13 claims of their coronavirus failings, a Government spokesperson has said that they have ‘taken the right steps’ to battle the pandemic and were guided by the ‘advice of experts’ at every stage.
During the programme, experts claimed Prime Minister Boris Johnson was opting for a ‘herd immunity’ strategy and, Pierpaolo Sileri, an Italian health minister, said Johnson had spoken to Italy’s PM Giuseppe Conte and told him how he wanted herd immunity on March 13.
Sileri said: ‘I remember that after hanging up, I said to myself that I hope Boris Johnson goes for a lockdown.’
Even though Downing Street has dismissed these claims, here’s a reminder of what herd immunity is and what medical professionals have said about it.

How immunity for Facebook kills Americans

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

When you tell people they won’t be held accountable for their actions, it almost always ends badly. That’s what’s happened with our police and our social media, two institutional pillars of personal and political society in America today. Removing those dual immunities could dramatically change—for the better—the lives of millions of Americans.
For police, the doctrine of “qualified immunity” first took hold in 1967 in the Supreme Court case Pierson v. Ray, when it was used “to shield white police officers from a lawsuit they faced for enforcing segregation,” as the Princetonian editorial board wrote recently.Advertisement:
In Pierson v. Ray, a group of black and white clergymen who supported racial integration sued the police for arresting their members for violating segregation rules and sitting in a “white[s] only” part of a bus station in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1961.
The Supreme Court concluded that the police largely had immunity from being sued because the arrests were made in “good faith.” (The Supreme Court also said in Pierson v. Ray that those officers were not expected to predict that the Supreme Court would decide in the 1965 case of Thomas v. Mississippi that whites-only areas were unconstitutional.)
The Reagan Revolution brought …

Why ‘immunity passports’ won’t be the golden tickets to travel after all

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Remember all the hype about so-called “immunity passports” getting the travel world back on track? Governments are still exploring whether certificates, wristbands or mobile apps could get those who have recovered from Covid-19 working and traveling again.But the notion that immunity passport holders would be able to travel the world carte blanche, going mask-free on airplanes and touring empty museums and amusement parks with no fear of infection, was short-lived.Immunity passports may appear a good plan in principle, but experts are now sounding the alarm against them.Antibody testing is surprisingly inaccurateMuch ado was made when air carrier Emirates began trialing antibody finger-prick tests to a small subset of passengers in March. But when accuracy rates were found to be around 30%, the Dubai Health Authority, which had been administering the tests, banned the testing altogether.Think 30% is low? It gets worse. A report by more than 50 scientists found that of 14 antibody tests on the market, only three provided consistently reliable results (and even those three had issues). The Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND), a global nonprofit diagnostics organization, estimates over 250 antibody tests have been commercialized to date, with more than 30 currently in development.A nurse in Rome …

5 food items and drinks that are hurting your immunity | The Times of India

Yes, so keep that glass of beer, wine or your choice of alcohol away, if you want your immune system to stay in top-notch shape. While a glass of alcohol here and there may not do much harm, it is the excessive consumption of alcohol which heavily impacts your immune system. Infact, several studies have noted the link between excessive alcohol intake and weakened immunity. Both binge drinking and excessive drinking may leave you more susceptible to pneumonia and other respiratory illness as well. Hence, one should stick to one drink a day for women and no more than two drinks a day for men.

New Bill Would Abolish Qualified Immunity, Make It Easier To Sue Cops Who Violate Civil Rights

Information Access and Management (IAM) Platform powers IAM Network - 60,000 + engaged information professionals worldwide.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In response to the George Floyd protests, the past few days have seen a surge of police violence, with unprovoked attacks on peaceful demonstrators, journalists, and even people just standing in their own homes. Incredibly, even though there’s clear video evidence for many of these incidents, holding police accountable for their actions is far from a slam dunk. A legal rule known as “qualified immunity” often shields police officers and other government officials from being sued by victims and their families, even if the officers violated their civil rights. And since prosecutors are loath to file criminal charges against government agents, suing rogue officers for damages in civil court is often the only recourse available to victims of government abuse. 
But late Sunday night, Congressman Justin Amash (L-MI) revealed that he will introduce the End Qualified Immunity Act, which would eliminate a “permanent procedural roadblock for plaintiffs” that thwarts them from “obtaining damages for having their rights violated.”

Police accountability and immunity could get a closer look by the Supreme Court

Information Access and Management (IAM) Platform powers IAM Network - 60,000 + engaged information professionals worldwide.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The Supreme Court could decide soon whether it will take a closer look at a legal doctrine it created nearly 40 years ago that critics say is shielding law enforcement and government officials from accountability. Defenders argue that it protects an officer’s ability to make a snap decision during potentially dangerous situations. In recent years, legal scholars, judges and justices on all sides of the ideological spectrum have criticized the legal doctrine known as “qualified immunity,” arguing that it is not grounded in the proper legal authorities and too often shields officials from accountability. “When the Supreme Court grants qualified immunity … it sends a message to law enforcement that there are not consequences for violating the law and it sends the message to the people that their rights don’t matter,” UCLA law professor Joanna Schwartz said.Under the doctrine, an officer will not be liable even if he violated the Constitution unless it was “clearly established” by prior cases that his conduct was unconstitutional. That requires a high bar and makes it difficult to win unless the situation is similar to a prior case with nearly identical facts. In some cases with unique fact patterns, of which there are many, officers …
