  • Antibodies induced by the Moderna Inc and Pfizer Inc/BioNTech SE vaccines are dramatically less effective at neutralizing some of the most worrying coronavirus variants, a new study suggests.

    Pfizer now knows this since 5 months. Why do they present this a new claims???


    Whether these variants are more deadly just depends on the medication. Certainly not for Ivermectin. We just bought some for an exposed friend.

    Only idiots die, that believe a hospital will help you.


    At least the UK 1.1.7.1 variant is much less deadly than the original, as you get CoV-19 with a much lower dose already and most infected are younger. Only the mafia does/will not understand this!


    No more deaths since 3 weeks in Geneva with > 90% UK virus!

  • Pfizer may have known these facts but they aren't sharing with me, this study and article IS getting those facts out to the public. Better late then never. We still have a high death count here but it is falling, slowly. The next week will tell the B117 story. Cases are rising in Europe and parts of the US.

  • The agency is expected to release the team's investigative findings in the next two weeks. In the meantime, Daszak gave NPR a highlight of what the team figured out.

    The next step, says Daszak, is to figure out specifically which animal carried the virus and at which of the many wildlife farms.


    How are they going to do this if they have shut down the farms over a year ago and had the animals destroyed?

    I smell a bamboo rat.

  • Ahead of the awaited decision / recommendation of the EMA on how to further deal with Astrazeneca vaccinations, Norwegian scientists claim to have found a clear link for their reported severe side effects (blood clotting, low number of blood placelets).

    Meanwhile 6 more cases, total of 13 cases now in Germany.... :-(

    Health Canada is saying that there is nothing to worry about here ; first, our Astrazeneca vaccine was made in India, unlike what Europe is receiving. Second, they claim there is no increase in blood clotting with the vaccine in Canada, beyond what should be expected in the general unvaccinated population.


    This should convey a general theme. When one gets a vaccine injected directly into the body, not only is one placing his faith in the originators of the vaccine and in the first safety trials, one is placing faith that the subsequent mass manufacturing processes in various places around the world are in fact producing the same and uniform product. One is also placing faith in the subsequent processes of distribution and administration of a potentially very degradable vaccine.

  • The next step, says Daszak, is to figure out specifically which animal carried the virus and at which of the many wildlife farms.

    This is exactly what I said, what the Chinese will do for constructing a natural origin for the virus. Find an animal they can infect but do not let it run to make the story endemic... Quite a challenge to plant the original virus only. But for sure you will find none later if you hunt a wild one...

    Second, they claim there is no increase in blood clotting with the vaccine in Canada, beyond what should be expected in the general unvaccinated population.

    In Germany the increase in thrombosis was 20x above natural. Mostly woman - some speculate about Heparin playing a role. If the Indian (Canada) version is clean, then they will find the difference. Takes just one good MS.

  • Five reasons why COVID herd immunity is probably impossible

    Nothing new in the paper. We already said one year ago that you will need at least 98% vaccination for herd immunity but the vaccines only give 85% protection for a severe disease and of course no immunity, what is very difficult for a respiratory mucosa virus. Pfizer reduces the virus load just by 4x - & shorter duration. But you still produce more than enough to infect your partner seriously.


    The only question is why the mafia wants to kill everything we like about our society by blocking the best treatment with Ivermectin??


    Once more: Inform all your friends net partners etc. about the facts to end the fascist mafia terror!

  • My area in sweden has seen much lower case rates then other parts of sweden and scientists has analyzed why. It isnt masks. Its how we socialize in tight small groups with little interactiin between. Again masks do help but the debate is flawed with way too much focus on masks. social distancing is way more important and essentiall all around me who got covid did it because they socialized. Probably if they wore a mask they would have been ok but dining and masks ... I went to hospital due to blood cloths in the lungs. felt very safe and everything was carefully handled. no visitors. only stay in the room. nurses and doctors with masks and visir e.g plastic shields. whenever moving around i got a mask. All went ok. Its cool how the society adapts. But next summer there will be a change with family gatherings and party as the vaccine saves us. longing longing.

  • Even with vaccination efforts in full force, the theoretical threshold for vanquishing COVID-19 looks to be out of reach.

    https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00728-2

    Here is one factor this article may be underestimating. The new mRNA vaccines can be changed rapidly. Within weeks, if necessary, and they will not need FDA approval. So if vaccine resistant strains emerge, the vaccines can be adjusted and everyone can get a third booster shot. By the time that happens, production will be ramped up to the point where millions of vaccines can be administered per day.


    Doses administered per day recently peaked at 4.6 million:


    https://www.washingtonpost.com…tates-distribution-doses/


    I think there is no doubt that 10 or 20 million could be administered per day if the vaccines were available and the effort was organized. There have been discussions of asking dentists and others to help give the shots. Even veterinarians. I suppose you would only need one booster keyed to a new strain, if you already had two others.

  • People who have been vaccinated are dying of blood clots at a lower rate per capita than an unvaccinated sample of people of similar ages and conditions. In other words, the vaccines are not causing significant numbers of serious blood clots.


    Unfortunately, many people -- including political leaders -- have no sense of risk factors and they do not understand the first thing about statistics. When you fly to Milwaukee, you are more likely to be killed driving from the airport to the town than you were on the airplane. But most people do not understand that, and are more afraid of the flight.


    (To be fair, I suppose the flying is a somewhat unusual or even novel experience for many people, and we tend to be afraid of things we are not used to. I suppose that is partly why people are afraid to get a COVID-19 vaccination. We have never done that before. Still, 400 million other people have been vaccinated, and there is not a single confirmed death or serious injury among them. You would expect ~400 deaths by now from an unusually dangerous vaccine. Zero from most modern vaccines.)

    That is the situation in rural Yamaguchi Japan. "We don't get out much anyway," they say. Upstate New York and other rural areas also have low numbers of cases. But there are exceptions. Rural districts with concentrated industries such as meatpacking plants have very high rates. For some reason, North and South Dakota, and Native American communities have high rates, even though they have low population density. I do not know why their rates are so high.

  • Europe to resume use of AstraZeneca vaccine after blood clot concerns


    https://news.google.com/articl…=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen


    Much of Europe on Friday was restarting use of the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine after the European Union’s pharmaceutical regulator declared the shot “safe and effective.”


    France, Germany, Italy and Spain said they would resume administering the vaccine following temporary suspensions over fears that the shot may have caused rare blood clot disorders. The European Medicines Agency said Thursday that the vaccine, jointly developed by Oxford University and British-Swedish pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca, is safe but that it could not rule out a link to the small number of blood clot cases.


    On Friday, the prime ministers of Britain and France were scheduled to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca shot as a way to boost confidence in the vaccine.

  • A new coronavirus variant found in France can hide from COVID-19 nasal-swab tests


    https://www.businessinsider.co…an-evade-tests-2021-3?amp


    A region of France has been beset by a version of the coronavirus that can hide from standard tests.


    The French ministry of health and social affairs announced Monday that among a cluster of 79 COVID-19 cases in Brittany, eight patients were infected with the new variant, but several of them tested negative.


    Despite those negative tests, the patients showed typical COVID-19 symptoms.


    The new variant does not yet have a alphanumeric designation. But it's not the first variant that appears able to evade testing. Finnish researchers announced last month that they had identified a strain named Fin-796H with a mutation that made it difficult to detect with some nasal-swab tests, too

  • Doctors suggest Covid-19 could cause diabetes


    https://amp.theguardian.com/wo…een-covid-19-and-diabetes


    A cohort of scientists from across the world believe that there is a growing body of evidence that Covid-19 can cause diabetes in some patients.


    Prof Francesco Rubino, from King’s College London, is leading the call for a full investigation into a possible link between the two diseases. Having seen a rise in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in people who have caught coronavirus, some doctors are even considering the possibility that the virus ‒ by disrupting sugar metabolism ‒ could be inducing an entirely new form of diabetes.


    Rubino first realised the possibility of a link during a tea party with colleagues over Zoom where anecdotal cases were being exchanged.



    Rubino and others set up a registry to start pooling and analysing these reports. The principal investigators of the registry which has received reports from more than 350 individual clinicians who suspect they have encountered one or more cases of Covid-induced diabetes — have said the numbers were hard to ignore.


    “Over the last few months, we’ve seen more cases of patients that had either developed diabetes during the Covid-19 experience, or shortly after that. We are now starting to think the link is probably true – there is an ability of the virus to cause a malfunctioning of sugar metabolism,” said Rubino.


    If there was a biological link, it would be difficult to prove without a substantial database, he noted. “We said it’s worth embarking on an investigation because this – especially given the size of the pandemic – could be a significant problem.”

  • COVID-19 Circulated In China For 2 Months Before Being Discovered: Study


    https://www.ndtv.com/world-new…4373?amp=1&akamai-rum=off


    Washington: The novel coronavirus was likely circulating undetected for at most two months before the first human cases of COVID-19 were described in Wuhan, China in late-December 2019, according to a study.

    The research, published in the journal Science, used molecular dating tools and epidemiological simulations to date the emergence of the virus to as early as October 2019.


    The team, including researchers from University of California San Diego in the US, note that their simulations suggest that the mutating virus dies out naturally more than three-quarters of the time without causing an epidemic.


    Determining the length of that 'phylogenetic fuse' was at the heart of our investigation," Michael Worobey said.


    Based on this work, the researchers estimate that the median number of persons infected with SARS-CoV-2 in China was less than one until November 4, 2019.


    Thirteen days later, it was four individuals, and just nine on December 1, 2019, they said.


    The first hospitalisations in Wuhan with a condition later identified as COVID-19 occurred in mid-December.


    The researchers used a variety of analytical tools to model how the SARS-CoV-2 virus may have behaved during the initial outbreak and early days of the pandemic when it was largely an unknown entity.


    These tools included epidemic simulations based on the virus's known biology, such as its transmissibility and other factors.


    In just 29.7 per cent of these simulations was the virus able to create self-sustaining epidemics.


    In the other 70.3 per cent, the virus infected relatively few persons before dying out. The average failed epidemic ended just eight days after the index case.


    "We saw that over two-thirds of the epidemics we attempted to simulate went extinct. That means that if we could go back in time and repeat 2019 one hundred times, two out of three times, COVID-19 would have fizzled out on its own without igniting a pandemic, Joel Wertheim noted.


    "This finding supports the notion that humans are constantly being bombarded with zoonotic pathogens," he added.

    Most likely due to weak immune system response.

    I believe that this is why there are so many asymptotic diagnoses. To many people, this infection has another flu like symptoms and their immune systems are well prepared to attack, many are not.
