The United States is on a chaotic path with no federal plan against the coronavirus pandemic as it reduces public health funding and ignores the advances of climate change, according to activist scholar Noam Chomsky, considered the founder of modern linguistics.

What follows are extracts, edited for clarity, from an AFP interview with the 91-year-old leftist intellectual, who has authored more than 100 books and is currently a professor at the University of Arizona.

For two months he's been confined in Tucson with his Brazilian wife Valeria, his dog and a parrot who can say "sovereignty" in Portuguese.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Vaccine Latest Update: After Moderna, China's Cansino Biologics claims vaccine breakthrough; Oxford to start advanced human trials; Indian Covid-19 vaccine unlikely within a year
By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: May 25, 2020 1:09:06 pm

Days after US biotechnology company Moderna Inc reported successful results from its experimental vaccine for Covid-19, a second breakthrough has been made in China, with Cansino Biologics Inc saying the vaccine appeared to be safe and might protect people from the novel coronavirus.

With Covid-19 infecting more than 5.5 million and killing 338,249 people across the world, a vaccine is considered to be the best long-term solution for allowing countries to reopen their economies by coming out of months-long lockdown.

For Covid-19, there are over 100 vaccines being developed across the world now, some from scratch, some from existing molecules developed for other diseases.

A huge spike in coronavirus cases in the Middle East, where many have been observing the Islamic month of Ramadan, has led countries to extend and reinforce lockdown measures during this weekend's Eid holiday.

The largest number of cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, has been in Saudi Arabia, which normally sees millions of Muslims descend on the holy cities of Mecca and Medina during Ramadan. In response to the outbreak, the kingdom closed off the religious sites, with stark images of empty mosques and sacred sites circulating online.

But despite such measures, the number of cases has only grown in Saudi Arabia, passing 50,000 on Saturday and ballooning to 62,545 as of Wednesday — with 339 deaths — according to the Ministry of Health.

Europe is abandoning Trump on the world stage as it turns away from the US toward China

President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic has triggered global criticism.
•   Recent polling suggests Europeans are turning away from the US under President Donald Trump's leadership.

•   Public opinion toward America has declined in major European countries since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

•   Seventy-six percent of Germans in a new poll said their view of America had deteriorated because of the crisis.

•   Roughly equal numbers of Germans in the poll favored maintaining close relationships with China and the US in a head-to-head matchup.

•   One poll last week found that just 2% of French people trusted Trump to provide world leadership.

•   China is exerting growing political, diplomatic, and financial power across Europe.

The Trump administration has repeatedly claimed that the US is “leading the world” with its response to the pandemic, but it does not seem to be going in any direction the world wants to follow.

The “very stable genius” looks right at the sun

Donald Trump’s open-mic riff suggesting government health experts explore injecting patients with bleach or household disinfectants to fight covid-19 made for easy parody. “And then I see the disinfectant, that knocks it out in a minute, one minute,” he said at Thursday night’s televised news briefing. “Is there a way we can do something like that, by injection, inside, or almost a cleaning.” Because the coronavirus “does a tremendous number on the lungs,” he went on to say, “it would be interesting to check that.” He added his usual disclaimer, “I’m not a doctor,” but assured viewers that “I’m, like, a person that has a good you-know-what.”

This prompted warnings from state governments and the makers of Lysol about the serious bodily harm that taking this “I’m-not-a-doctor” advice would cause. But as absurd as Trump’s comments were, they could hardly have been surprising. His “good you-know-what” has led us down this path before. During his three years in office, Trump has regularly expressed confidence that he knows more than the experts. That confidence is matched only by the ignorance he actually displays about a vast array of topics. Repeatedly, he has sent government officials scrambling on foolish missions, leading them to spend time and personal capital persuading him not to follow through on schemes that are invariably wasteful, ineffective, unrealistic, or dangerous.

"I've stopped worrying about the president's sanity," Cranston wrote on social media in the midst of the president's response to Covid-19.

Bryan Cranston shared incendiary words about Donald Trump on social media over the weekend as backlash against the president’s Covid-19 response continued to skyrocket. Trump generated controversy for wondering if household disinfectant products could be ingested as a means of fighting coronavirus. The president’s remarks prompted Lysol to issue a statement saying buyers should not consume any Lysol products because it is poisonous to do so. According to NBC News, calls to New York City poison control over bleach and Lysol consumption doubled after Trump’s statements. Cranston wrote on Twitter that he no longer believed Trump was sane.

“I’ve stopped worrying about the president’s sanity,” Cranston said. “He’s not sane. And the realization of his illness doesn’t fill me with anger, but with profound sadness. What I now worry about is the sanity of anyone who can still support this deeply troubled man to lead our country.”

South Korean officials are calling for caution amid reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may be ill or is being isolated because of coronavirus concerns, emphasising that they have detected no unusual movements in North Korea.

At a closed door forum yesterday, South Korea's Unification Minister Kim Yeon-chul, who oversees engagement with the North, said the government has the intelligence capabilities to say with confidence that there was no indications of anything unusual.

Rumours and speculation over the North Korean leader's health began after he made no public appearance at a key state holiday on 15 April, and has since remained out of sight.

South Korea media last week reported that Mr Kim may have undergone cardiovascular surgery or was in isolation to avoid exposure to the new coronavirus.

Unification Minister Kim Yeon-chul cast doubt on the report of surgery, arguing that the hospital mentioned did not have the capabilities for such an operation.

Still, Yoon Sang-hyun, chairman of the foreign and unification committee in South Korea's National Assembly, told a gathering of experts today that Kim Jong-un's absence from the public eye suggests "he has not been working as normally".

Trump suggests injecting disinfectant to kill coronavirus. Here's why he's wrong
Disinfectants, like bleach and isopropyl alcohol, are toxic and should not be consumed, ingested or injected to fight COVID-19.

During a White House press briefing on Thursday, president Donald Trump floated the idea of injecting disinfectant or using ultraviolet or "very powerful" light inside the body as a coronavirus remedy. Disinfectants are toxic chemicals that are poisonous to the human body and should not be injected. Similarly, ultraviolet light contains energy powerful enough to damage DNA.

"I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute," said Trump, turning to Deborah Birx, the coronavirus response coordinator in the White House task force and Bill Bryan, head of the science and technology directorate at the Department of Homeland Security. "Is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning?" he asked.

Both claims were immediately criticized by doctors and physicians.
