“She tried to do her job, and it killed her,” said the father of Dr. Lorna M. Breen, who worked at a Manhattan hospital hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak.
A top emergency room doctor at a major Manhattan hospital died by suicide Sunday, according to her father.
Dr. Lorna M. Breen, medical director of the emergency department at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital, died in Charlottesville, Virginia, where she was staying with family, her father said in an interview.
Her father, Dr. Philip C. Breen, said she had described devastating scenes of the toll the coronavirus took on patients.
“She tried to do her job, and it killed her,” he said.
Philip Breen said his daughter had contracted the coronavirus but had gone back to work after recuperating for about a week and a half. The hospital sent her home again, before her family intervened to bring her to Charlottesville, he said.
It was not clear why Lorna Breen would have taken her own life. She did not have a history of mental illness, her father said. But he said that when he last spoke with her, she seemed detached, and he could tell something was wrong. She had described to him an onslaught of patients dying before they could even be taken out of ambulances.
“She was truly in the trenches of the front line,” he said.
He added: “Make sure she’s praised as a hero, because she was. She’s a casualty just as much as anyone else who has died.”
The hospital did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Dr. Angela Mills, head of emergency medical services at many NewYork-Presbyterian campuses, including Allen, sent an email to hospital staffers Sunday night informing them of Lorna Breen’s death. The email, which was reviewed by The New York Times, did not mention a cause of death. Mills, who could not be reached for comment, said in the email that the hospital was deferring to the family’s request for privacy.
“A death presents us with many questions that we may not be able to answer,” the email read.
NewYork-Presbyterian Allen is a 200-bed hospital at the northern tip of Manhattan that at times had as many as 170 patients with COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus. As of April 7, there had been 59 patient deaths at the hospital, according to an internal document.

One Baby Policy Blamed for Killing Babies in China
Some Chinese people are known to be eating babies, and the news, which has been circulating through the internet and via email, is shocking the world.
An email report received by The Seoul Times confirmed that news with several vivid and appalling pictures of human embryos and fetuses being made into a soup for human consumption.
The report went on. A town in the southern province of Canton (Guangdong) is now in focus. Chinese folks there are enjoying baby herbal soup to increase overall health and stamina and the power of sexual performance in particular.
The cost in Chinese currency is approximately Rs 2,000 (which is about US$4,000).
A factory manager was interviewed and he testified that it is effective because he is a frequent customer.
It is a delicacy whereby expensive herbs are added to boil the baby with chicken meat for eight hours.
He pointed to his second wife next to him. She is 19 years old. The 62-year-old man testified that they have sex everyday.
After waiting for a couple of weeks he took the reporter to the restaurant when he was informed by the restaurant manager that the spare rib soup (local code for baby soup) was now available.
This time, a couple who already has two daughters decided to abort the child after receiving confirmation that it was another girl. The baby was already five months old.
Those babies who are close to be born and die naturally costs 2000 in China currency. Those aborted ones cost a few hundreds in China currency.
Those couples who did not want to sell dead babies, placentas can be accepted also for couple of hundreds.
One local reporter was quoted as saying that this is the problem arising from Chinese taking too much attention in health or is the backfire effect when China introduced one child in a family policy.
This heinous crimes rise from the fact that majority of Chinese people prefer to have male babies and the poor families end up selling their female babies.
Dead babied can be purchased in Taiwan for 70 US dollars for being used as grilled delicacies.
More than 17,000 pills smuggled into country have been intercepted since last August
Pills viewed as a ‘miracle cure’ for all ailments – but unsurprisingly they are harmful
Thousands of pills filled with powdered human flesh have been discovered by customs officials in South Korea, it was revealed today.
The capsules are in demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal ‘cure-all’.
The grim trade is being run from China where corrupt medical staff are said to be tipping off medical companies when babies are aborted or delivered still-born.
The tiny corpses are then bought, stored in household refrigerators in homes of those involved in the trade before they are removed and taken to clinics where they are placed in medical drying microwaves.
Once the skin is tinder dry, it is pummelled into powder and then processed into capsules along with herbs to disguise the true ingredients from health investigators and customs officers.
The discoveries since last August has shocked even hardened customs agents who have pledged to strengthen inspections.
Chinese officials are understood to have been aware of the trade and have tried to stop the capsules being exported but thousands of packets of them have been smuggled through to South Korea.
There is a huge demand for alternative Chinese remedies – which include ground up rhino horns.
The Chinese have historically consumed human placentas to improve blood supply and circulation.
Health authorities in Asia are concerned that if the powdered foetus trade is allowed to continue the capsules will find their way onto the internet and be sold to gullible or sick desperate people in other parts of the world.
The South Korean Customs Service said today that it had heightened its searches of suspicious packages being brought into the country by travellers from China in an attempt to stamp out the sickening trade.
According to customs agents, 35 smuggling attempts have been made since August last year involving more than 17,000 capsules disguised as ‘stamina boosters’.
Hospitals and abortion clinics in China reportedly pass the remains onto drugs companies when a baby is stillborn or aborted, the South Korean SBS documentary team reported last year.
The San Francisco Timesreported that tests carried out on the pills confirmed they were made up of 99.7 per cent human remains.
The tests were successfully able to establish the genders of the babies used.
There is a huge demand for the pills which are thought to enhance stamina. Microwave-dried placenta is also sought after for its alleged ‘medicinal’ benefits.
However, in reality the human flesh capsules contain super-bacteria and other harmful ingredients.
A number of smugglers who have been detained by the South Korean authorities have claimed they did not know what the ingredients were or the manufacturing process behind them.
‘Ethnic Koreans from north-east China who now live in South Korea are those who were mostly intending to use the capsules or share them with other Korean-Chinese’ said a customs official.
‘They are normally brought into South Korea in luggage or posted by international mail.’
The capsules were all confiscated but no one has been punished because the amount was deemed small and they were not intended for sale, a customs official added.
Chinese newspapers have identified the north eastern provinces as the source of the human flesh capsules, in particular the Jilin region which is close to North Korea.
There have been disturbing reports that some babies were those who had perished in China’s notorious ‘dying rooms’ where youngsters are deliberately left to die because they were born into families that already had the limit of one child in country areas.
In order to keep its population down, China performs 13 million abortions a year – mainly because mothers sacrifice their newborns to avoid punishment such as severe fines or even a beating by the authorities.
The Chinese authorities have confirmed that 38 per cent of women of child-bearing age have been sterilised – but the babies that are aborted do not go to waste because of the sickening trade in using their corpses for purported medicinal purposes.
Despite their disgust at discovering packets of the so-called rejuvenation pills being brought in from China, South Korean officials have refused to confirm where the babies came from or who made the capsules.
Sources said this was because they were not prepared to create diplomatic friction with Beijing, preferring to leave it to Chinese officials to do something about the horrific trade in powdered babies.

South Korea customs officials find thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh
Congregants from the Seattle-based Satanic Temple of Washington drew a crowd of prayerful onlookers Friday as they hoisted their pentagram and conducted a satanic ritual at the state Capitol Friday, March 6.
Christian groups and followers caught wind of the Satanist celebrants and showed up to sing and pray in the name of Jesus.
Some younger Christians held a sign that read “Satan has no rights.”
Satanic Temple affiliates, such as Justin Harvey-John Ashby, said their event was about promoting religious plurality. He said he believes satanic beliefs have been misunderstood and viewed as “grossly perverse,” and that their primary values are empathy, reason, bodily autonomy and justice.
Even if you have no desire to eat the flesh of fellow humans, it’s not so uncommon to wonder from time to time what human flesh looks and tastes like. io9 recently took up the first question and explained that human flesh firmly falls into the red meat camp. Beef, they concluded, would be the closest visual equivalent of a human fillet or rump roast. io9 explains the science behind the color:
Muscle’s red color can be traced to the presence of a richly pigmented protein called myoglobin and, more specifically, hemes, the chemical compounds that myoglobin uses to bind and store oxygen as a fuel source for active muscles.
According to the Meat Science section of Texas A&M University’s Department of Animal Science, pork, lamb and beef average 2, 6 and 8 milligrams of myoglobin per gram of muscle (that translates to a myoglobin concentration of 0.2%, 0.6% and 0.8%), respectively.
The concentration of myoglobin in human muscle tissues is relatively high – even relative to pigs, sheep and cows, coming in at close to 20 mg per gram of certain muscle fibers, or a 2% concentration of myoglobin.
But, according to the testimony of people who have actually eaten other people, the taste of human meat does not reflect its beef-like appearance. Both serial killers and Polynesian cannibals have described human as being most akin to pork. But not all cannibals agree with this description. William Seabrook, an author and journalist, traveled to West Africa in the 1920s and later described an encounter with man-flesh in great detail in his book, Jungle Ways. Human, he said, in fact tastes like veal. Here’s Seabrook’s description:
It was like good, fully developed veal, not young, but not yet beef. It was very definitely like that, and it was not like any other meat I had ever tasted. It was so nearly like good, fully developed veal that I think no person with a palate of ordinary, normal sensitiveness could distinguish it from veal. It was mild, good meat with no other sharply defined or highly characteristic taste such as for instance, goat, high game, and pork have. The steak was slightly tougher than prime veal, a little stringy, but not too tough or stringy to be agreeably edible. The roast, from which I cut and ate a central slice, was tender, and in color, texture, smell as well as taste, strengthened my certainty that of all the meats we habitually know, veal is the one meat to which this meat is accurately comparable.
This account is the most descriptive to date, but it has also been called into question. As Slate reports, Seabrook “later confessed that the distrustful tribesmen never allowed him to partake in their traditions.” Instead, the author insisted that he attained samples of human flesh from a Parisian hospital and cooked it up himself.
Regardless of Seabrook’s credibility, however, Slate points out that, like any meat, the flavor of human would likely depend a great deal on how it is prepared, and also what cut is sampled. The Azande tribe’s human stew likely tastes entirely different from the deep-fried, parsley-strewn human genitals a Japanese exhibitionist artist recently served at a dinner party. In the end, both pork and veal might be accurate approximations to the flavor of human meat, though—thankfully—most will never find out for themselves.
Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, are the only two world leaders brave enough to accuse Bill Gates of spreading Ebola in Congo
When people feel uncomfortable over their clandestine crimes they commit, after a long silence, they would like their voice to be heard. It is obvious that Bill Gates is now overwhelmed with the accusation of playing a role in the spread of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Now it has appeared in the American media that Bill Gates ‘Thinks There are Too Many Africans, Callsfor Population Control.’ The question is: Which among African leaders or Africans from which country are calling Bill Gates to control the growth of population in Africa? Gates can’t shut his mouth and like many times, he feels like doing something about Africa’s population growth.
Among the top priorities of the global community and the first of the United Nations’ seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is to eliminate global poverty. However, according to Bill Gates, there are barriers ahead reducing poverty because of too many people, especially in sub-Saharan Africa.
The report revealed that some world leaders, including French President, Emmanuel Macron, are worried about the rapid growth of population in Africa.
At the UN’s General Assembly, Macron reiterated that Africa’s high birth rate is not chosen fertility,” but reflects on the lack of education. “I always say: ‘Present me the woman who decided, being perfectly educated, to have seven, eight or nine children,” said Macron to support his claim that overpopulation issue in Africa is due to the lack of education.
The report further stresses that the extremely poor in the world could be hampered by population growth in Africa. Moreover, the report charges that because of the increased African population. Giving an example that the number of extreme poor could begin to rise given that more than 40 percent of the worlds extremely poor live in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Nigeria.
This confirms the genuine truth behind many of our (Scientist Johan Van Dongen, Dr. Wolff Geisler and I) articles that Bill Gates and the US government are responsible for the current spread of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
For many years, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been able to convince some world leaders, especially in Third World Countries that they are capable to educate Africa on family planning, alongside with agriculture and good health.
But it’s a big mistake to trust Bill Gates in Africa or any Third World Country, as he secretly used Africans as Guinea pigs in testing new drugs manufactured from pharmaceutical companies in America, and also financed depopulation by biological weapons such as Ebola in Congo.
I think we have written enough. We don’t need to convince African leaders, or I don’t need to convince intelligent Ghanaians about the obscure ‘good’ plans Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has for Africa. It is their choice to accept or reject them in Africa.
Africans are too intelligent to learn family planning at school, instead of trusting and allowing Bill Gates into their countries to inject them with dangerous vaccines to reduce childbirth or test drugs resulting in dangerous unfamiliar diseases in the continent.
On Thursday alone there were at least 40 wooden boxes buried in a freshly dug mass grave, photos show.
The bodies are typically wrapped in body bags and placed in pine boxes, with their names scrawled on the top.
“They added two new trenches in case we need them,” Jason Kersten, a spokesman for the city Department of Correction, told Reuters. “For social distancing and safety reasons, city-sentenced people in custody are not assisting in burials for the duration of the pandemic.”
The change in the system is hoped to alleviate the crunch on morgue space in the city due to the spread of the virus.
Under the new policy, the city Medical Examiner’s Office said it will now hold bodies in storage for 14 days before they are shipped out for burial if they remain unclaimed.
Asked earlier in the week if suspected coronavirus patients were among the dead, officials said they were uncertain because it is unknown if some deceased were not tested. The city’s count of COVID-19 deaths is believed to be inaccurate because “probable cases” of those found dead in their homes are not tested.
Melinda Hunt, director of the nonprofit Hart Island Project, told The Post earlier this week that 23 people were buried last Thursday — typically the date when burials occur on the island — and that the number of bodies has spiked lately.
The city corrections department has used inmates to bury the Big Apple’s anonymous and unclaimed dead for 150 years.
