A doctor in the suburbs of Chicago had his license suspended after he was found to be concocting his own “vaccines”—from cat drool and vodka.
According to the Chicago Tribune, investigators who were alerted to Dr. Ming Te Lin’s unorthodox methods came to check on his practice; in his cluttered office they found “a box filled with vials and tubes that [Lin] was using to make his own vaccinations.”
Lin said not to worry, he’d only been giving patients his unique vaccination blend for…over a decade.
He told investigators that he added vodka, and, if patients had allergies, cat saliva gathered straight from a cat’s mouth. It’s unclear whether or not the saliva was from Dr. Lin’s own cat, or random cats he found for the purpose of collecting their spit.
Lin allegedly administered his vaccines orally or in a nasal form.
The report says the vaccines were administered if the patient or a family member had a history of autism, eczema or neurological disorder. It’s not yet clear if Lin subscribed to the unfounded view that vaccines have a link to autism—yet his deeds will hardly help efforts to undermine the unscientific anti-vax movement.
It probably won’t come as a surprise to learn that Lin’s methods are not approved by the FDA, although he allegedly signed state forms certifying he had given pediatric patients their required shots.
One-third of Americans couldn’t pay their rent or mortgages this month
On July 1, 32 percent of Americans weren't able to pay their mortgage, CNBC cited a survey from Apartment List.
The high unemployment rate has turned into people being unable to afford to pay their bills anymore, and the stimulus checks seem to be gone.
"About 19 percent of Americans made no housing payment at all during the first week of the month, and 13 percent paid only a portion of their rent or mortgage," said the report.
To make matters worse, it's the fourth month in a row of record-high numbers of Americans who couldn't pay their housing bills on time or in full. It was 30 percent in June and 31 percent in May.
Kayleigh McEnany: When Trump said he wanted to ‘cut off’ school funding he meant he wants to increase it
During the Wednesday White House press briefing, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany argued that President Donald Trump believes that the reason students must return to school regardless of the risk of COVID-19 killing their families, teachers, and administration, is because children need the lunches in schools.
Schools should not follow the Center for Disease Control guidelines because some students depend on those lunches and can't bring food from home, she told the press.
The problem with the claim from the White House, however, is that those are the very programs they tried to cut from the budget.
Physician can’t figure out why Trump is being ‘triggered’ by the idea of schools opening a windows to avoid COVID in class
It was announced Wednesday that the White House would prefer schools don't consult the Center for Disease Control when deciding when and how to reopen.
MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace asked Dr. Vin Gupta how schools could possibly open safely, gather indoors, or even eat together in the cafeteria.
"Tthe short answer is 'no,'" said Dr. Gupta. "I do not recommend that at all. I love what Governor Phil Murphy (D-NJ) and Bill de Blasio have said. They've said, indoor dining, we're done with it. Outdoor dining is okay because indoor transmission is 20 times higher in certain cases if you're dining close by -- because we think that that's maybe there's 'airborne transmission.' I hate that term, it's confusing, but small droplets potentially from somebody infected with COVID-19 might persist in the air for hours over long distances."
