COVID-19 - Breaking News [OFFICIAL THREAD]


Message added by Hameedeh

Information changes rapidly and some news reports can be unreliable. We appreciate participation during this pandemic, but some replies can be removed if inaccurate. This thread is ONLY for breaking news.

You sound like my mom. I hope the rest of us who do get vaccinated are able to protect you and her both. Most people have to be vaccinated before herd immunity works. 

Too many people have died. I hope you don't die. 

I appreciate your concern. I am as concerned for those that get the vaccine, on many levels.
I'm concerned about those who have to wear masks for a dozen hours a day. 
I'm concerned for those that see a bigger picture but are up against a wall.
I'm concerned for those that are forced to comply and know it.
I'm concerned a the kid I used to coach, (well, kid in his 40's) who is single and wears a mask in his car. Who gets tested weekly, who hides from everyone. 

I'm concerned for those who have no hope.

I grieve for the too many people that died to prove there is a pandemic. 

I did surgery, had 19 days to get the opinions from many doctors, nurses, and a porter that completely blew my mind. They were more skeptical than I, especially about the vaccine. Their opinion went public when 50% of doctors and nurses in Alberta refused the first vaccine. That's not very encouraging. 

I've also been laid up long enough to research some really big words. I'm still laid up for a while. More doctors coming forward with their research and experience. Strength in numbers, they can't all be discredited. 

The vaccine may not be "mandatory" by law but it's becoming mandatory with employment. Six months ago that was a conspiracy theory. Once a vaccine is mandatory it doesn't matter what's in it.

You getting a vaccine will not protect your mother. They can't even tell you the vaccine will prevent you from getting the virus yourself. So far the farthest they'll go is "may" reduce the severity. Absolute abuse of the word vaccine. 

I liked to see the raw data in every project I've been involved in. I used to do a lot of the raw data myself. Some projects worked, some failed miserably. The main difference was assertation by repetitive measure, or hidden agenda where data was skewed. When the outcome is presented as a reason for the research in the initial meeting, the science doesn't matter. There is not enough compelling data in any of the restrictions. 

None of the 2020 studies show raw data. If you want to see raw data you have to go back to studies pre covid. Getting harder to find. The NIH redirects to a new page, new format, searches are filtered. The old format was so inundated with 2020 studies that the previous studies were drowned out. Hours of searching for what used to be minutes. Nobody has the time.

I mentioned a porter that blew my mind. I travelled from ICU to three different tech rooms daily for 14 days. One porter took my call often because we'd talk about fishing. While moving one place to another I'd hear "Code blue at the west, east, main, or emergency entrance. I asked him what it meant and it meant another one had overdosed and was dropped at an entrance. "It happens a lot. Lots more than normal. Lots more than covid, that's for sure." 

The cure is worse than the virus. The numbers are skewed. I can't go along with skewed data and nobody has anything to ease my mind. I'm not interested in paid experts. 
In 2011 the WHO published a paper recognizing a 2007 study on the ability of PCR tests to detect and determine SARS, MERS, influenzas A and B, and coronaviruses. The PCR test is now covid only?

In my world, this doesn't make sense.

I'm sorry, I could go on.

From the news:

The State of Ohio will no longer report 'daily death tolls'.

ln the first year of  this C-19 Pandemic, more than 3,607 health care workers died from C-19. Mostly "lower paid workers." 17% doctors of which 1/4th were immigrants.  https://www.npr.org/2021/04/08/985253407/lost-on-the-front-line-health-workers-who-died-of-covid-19  Kaiser Health News and The Guardian had to build their own data base as no gov't agency -including OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)- is recording any numbers or information. SEE: (very short read)  https://news.yahoo.com/more-3-600-us-health-110009311.html for Fauci's comment. Also, CDC "guidelines" were from notes on the SARS outbreak two decades ago.

What are the Brazil, South Africa and UK variants and will vaccines work

coronavirusIMAGE COPYRIGHTGETTY IMAGE

Two more cases of a Covid variant first identified in Brazil have been found in the UK, bringing the total number to 12.

Both - one in the West Midlands and one in Haringey, London - were linked with international travel to Brazil.

What are these new variants?

There are many thousands of different versions, or variants, of Covid circulating.

Apart from the Brazil variant (also known as P.1), concerns focus on a few:

It's not unexpected that new variants have developed - all viruses mutate as they make copies of themselves to spread and thrive.

Most of these differences are inconsequential. A few can even be harmful to the virus's survival. But some can make it more infectious or threatening.

Lol.

You can't fix stupid, but you can benefit from it.

In my state of Illinois, big local variations in vaccine policy have sent thousands of people travelling hundreds of miles from largely Democratic urban and suburban areas to largely Republican rural areas with higher levels of vaccine hesitancy, to score coronavirus shots they couldn’t get closer to home.

Thanks brother. Remember us in your prayers. 

Currently only people above 45 are eligible for vaccine. People above 18 will be eligible from 1st May. I'll wait and see if my employer get us the dose, it would be less crowded. 

Our generous PM donated millions of doses to many countries and even sold millions before inoculating his own citizen. We manufacture 60 percent of world's vaccine. So, we should have inoculated atleast half of the population till now but not even 10 percent is done. We have immense potential but more politics and less work is the motto of our politician.

It comes as India recorded 352,991 new cases, breaking the previous global record it set the day before, and 2,812 new deaths, its highest daily figure for fatalities.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/26/doctors-sound-warning-over-oxygen-hoarding-as-india-reports-record-covid-cases-and-deaths

 

Because in India they're able to count the dead to the nearest single individual. At this level, It would be more honest to round up to the nearest 5,000 or even more.

'Sorry, did not know': Thief returns stolen Covishield, Covaxin vaccines

Sorry, didn't know': Thieves leave stolen Covid-19 vaccines at tea stall in  Haryana's Jind - Coronavirus Outbreak News

 

Quote

As many as 1,270 doses of Covishield and 440 doses of Covaxin were stolen from a storeroom of the hospital. The matter came to light when a sanitation worker found the locks of the store and deep freezer broken on Thursday. The police registered a case and took up investigation.

In an interesting turn of events, a young man with his face covered left a bag at a tea stall outside the police station saying that it had lunch for the munshi. “The tea stall owner handed over the bag to the munshi. The policeman opened the bag and found that it contained the stolen vaccines with an apology note. 

 at noon, an unknown man handed over the vaccines to an old man sitting on a tea stall outside the Civil Lines police station and said it was station Munshi's lunch," the DSP said.

He added that when the old man handed the package to the police, they discovered the stolen vaccine doses.
