    Japan and the UK have roughly the same vaccination percent, but the situation is vastly different. Many people think the biggest difference between Japan and the UK is that people in Japan have been wearing masks in public since 1900…

    I agree there is a lot of complexity in the data about masks.

    I disagree that you need all this complexity to reckon Mark U's views are batty.

    The standard recommended mask - fabric, several layers - is the minimum effective type, but…

    Read other articles and you will see that information is incomplete. They have been testing the variant against blood samples of people in the U.S. where many people have had boosters.

    You can find all of this and more at authoritative public health sites. This information has been available since the pandemic began. It was available in Japan decades ago, because masks are common there.

    Of course they have used a booster against omicron! This is clearly explained in several articles. They test the virus with (1) blood sample antibodies from people with two vaccines, and (2) with samples from people with two vaccines plus…

    No, that is not enough. Suppose an unvaccinated young person infects a 65-year-old with a breakthrough case. That 65-year-old is more likely to die than the unvaccinated 30 year old. By not vaccinating, young adults put the rest of…

    And mocking scientists for being uncertain when any sane person would realise we cannot yet know is not helpful?

    Yes Stefan, that sounds right.

    I was not talking in the post you quote about children (sort of a separate issue) but all those fit adults age 20 - 50 who are not at high risk, but who if infected put older contacts they live with at…

    The omicron variant is “spreading rapidly” in the UK and could soon become the dominant Covid-19 strain, experts have warned, after case numbers surged by more than 50 per cent in a day.

    I found a paper by a Chilean public health doctor that explained this. I posted it here . . . Anyway, she showed that the Sinvac Chinese vaccine does not have much effect after the first dose. I recall it only reduced infection by about…

    UK is 82% (double dose or more) of the over-12s. Less if you count whole population and it should be noted that the under-12s have been driving spread of COVID for a while here.

    Yes, these differences between countries are big.…

    Vaccinations have eliminated COVID in Japan and reduced it very low levels in Chile and other countries. These places have 75% to 80% vaccination rates. The delta variant has been eliminated. I do not know why this has not…

    You have that backwards. I am convinced that LENR is real because mainstream science and mainstream scientists demonstrated that. Fleischmann, Bockris, Storms, McKubre and the others are as mainstream as they come. As Fleischmann…
