volunteers for covid 19 vaccine needed

A hospital in Tel Aviv claims it has developed a treatment that saw patients with moderate to serious COVID-19 cases leaving the hospital just days later.

Ichilov Medical Center in Tel Aviv has completed its phase one trials with its new coronavirus treatment. The EXO-CD24 treatment was given to 30 patients and all 30 recovered — 29 of them left in merely days, fully recovered, as reported by the Times of Israel.

The Times reports that the new drug fights the “cytokine storm” which is an overreaction by the body’s immune system when infected with COVID.

The treatment delivers CD24 protein to the lungs, a topic the drug’s creator, Nadir Arber, has studied for years.

“This protein is located on the surface of cells and has a well known and important role in regulating the immune system,” researcher Shiran Shapira told the Times.

This protein helps to slow the internal storm and calm the immune system.

“The preparation is inhaled once a day for a few minutes, for five days,” drug creator Nadir Arber said. “The preparation is directed straight to the heart of the storm — the lungs — so unlike other formulas… which selectively restrain a certain cytokine, or operate widely but cause many serious side effects, EXO-CD24 is administered locally, works broadly and without side effects.”

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
