[Why – for the past several days – has the WHO internet site been unavailable?? The WHO is the first and most trusted source to whom I would turn for credible information and data on COVID-19. When the public has been advised to seek the facts from WHO or CDC, why then is WHO inaccessible at any given instant??? Eh, but my trouble in gaining access via any and all browser has forced me to turn to an alternative that could prove of greater value to my studies in the end – WHO snapshots posted at the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine! So here then (with assistance as needed from Wayback)… — ARL 2020 Mar 25]

Once the primary source of credible information and data for the United States, although this crucial authority was benched in favor of political interests in early March 2020 and since then has taken scapegoating blame for Administration leaders’ mismanagement. Historical advice on the handling of pandemics — pretty much trashed by the Administration team in favor of political strategems — and early attempts to prepare against the COVID-19 outbreak can be found at the Wayback Machine.

Commerce, U.S. Department of

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted U.S. commerce, as yet I find no central source of COVID-19 information or activity located at the U.S. Department of Commerce website. Rather, the Commerce websites merely redirects COVID-19 traffic to other Administration websites, usually with no specificity with respect to commerce issues. [ARL 2020 Apr 15]

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) —


Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) — Sadly, another politicized federal agency that rewards “loyalty,” punishes opposition and makes decisions based on political ambitions. But such as it is, it will provide “information” at least to the extent of past official actions and pronoucements. And as with other websites I’ll be tracking, the Internet Archive for FEMA can be found at at Wayback Machine.


Federal Reserve System


Food & Drug Administration (FDA) —


Health & Human Services (HHS) —


Homeland Security, Department of (DHS) — This authority has been politicized (e.g., purging of experts thought to be “disloyal” to the President), hence is of dubious credibility as to facts, projections, policies and the like. For my studies, I will be referencing DHS almost solely for official announcement of actions put into place by DHS, since one might hope that the actual reality of such actions would have been influenced by political disregard of facts only in the formation, rather than in the application. As for the Internet Archive for DHS, see Wayback Machine.
