Coronavirus

Recommended Posts

Don’t think I mentioned that my aunt spent a month in The Royal with Covid (thankfully not bad) because it exacerbated her Alzheimer’s and made her mobility drop off a cliff. She’s been released into a care home for assessment to see if she can be cared for at home or needs to stay in car.
 

She’s been on isolation for the first ten days so today was the first day we could go in and see her in over a month.

 

It was really upsetting and took place from behind a glass screen. She kept saying she wanted to touch us but the best we could do was palms up against the screen from each side. She seems a lot better than before she was taken into hospital though.

 

 


Addendum: Care nurse was fit as fuck. Think she was Polish. Absolutely gorgeous. Wonder if she wants a husband to get citizenship....

Hope it all works out for her mate and she gets the right care. I think its best she gets a home though instead of staying in the car. x

See how you go on with the tests but if they find nothing physical I'd deffo talk to the GP again, they'll probably just give you some beta blockers for a bit, they stop those kind of physical symptoms. They're also classed as performance enhancing drugs for snooker and darts.

Finally some good news.

I've never much heard anything from Schwarzenegger until the last month or so. But I'm starting to warm to him. And I read that as if he was talking to the kids in kindergarten cop.

I'd love to ask him if he has a tumour

He comes across very well in any interviews I've seen him in.

Multiple reasons once you think about it. 

Do any of them take into account you aren’t a virologist?

I'm not wrong to think he was a republican governor wasn't he? Would he be disbarred from running for president because he wasn't born in America?

Behind a pay wall for me that. 

 

 

A single shot of the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine produces a robust antibody response within weeks, according to Israeli data that could help inform whether scarce global supplies can be stretched by delaying second doses.

At the Rambam Health Care Campus in northern Israel, 91 per cent of the 1,800 doctors and nurses that received the two dose vaccine showed a major presence of antibodies 21 days after their first shot, before receiving the second dose, according to Michael Halberthal, chief executive of the hospital. A further 2 per cent showed a moderate presence of antibodies.

“If 93 per cent had a major response three weeks after the first injection, this raises a good question, that you might rather be using the first injection on more people” said Dr Halberthal.

At the Sheba Medical Center, similar serological tests at different intervals showed at least 50 per cent of staff with a level of antibodies “above the cut-off point” two weeks after the first jab, said Arnon Afek, the associate director-general of the hospital chain.

 

The UK will soon have its own data showing efficacy after the first dose for the different vaccines currently in use and any policy changes should await more robust data.

Stephen Evans, professor of pharmacoepidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

The data from the two hospitals is based on individual antibody responses to the vaccine and does not a provide definitive assessment of the efficacy of a single shot. BioNTech/Pfizer’s clinical trials were based on two shots, 21 days apart, and did not measure antibody response. Pfizer said it could not comment on independent studies.

However, the early findings are likely to encourage those scientists who have argued that the time between the first and second doses of Covid vaccines could be extended in order to stretch limited supplies.

“This goes to what’s been in dispute right now in the UK, whether to continue giving just a first dose, so that people receive certain levels of immunity or to go to the second,” said Mr Afek,

Israel has sufficient vaccine supplies and is not expected to change its strategy. It plans to inoculate the entire adult population by mid March. “The question of whether the first shot is enough will not be answered out of Israel,” Mr Afek said. “Our policy is to give two shots, but the data we have collected is significant.”

Israel’s rapid vaccination programme is being closely watched by epidemiologists looking for data on real world vaccine efficacy and the impact of vaccine-induced immunity on infection rates. The country of 9m people has already administered first shots to more than a quarter of the population, the highest vaccination rate in the world. It has administered second shots to about 850,000 people, including 80 per cent of the population over 60.

Frontline healthcare workers were among the first to be vaccinated in Israel, providing a large sample of an at-risk population stretching back to late-December.

Stephen Evans, professor of pharmacoepidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, said the UK, which has chosen to space the first and second doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer shot beyond the recommended 21 days, was conducting its own studies.

“The UK will soon have its own data showing efficacy after the first dose for the different vaccines currently in use and any policy changes should await more robust data,” he said.

Was thinking of adding ‘that’s where the birther nonsense came from’ but thought better of it as that shit can die a death and never needs be spoken of again.

Learnt this morning one of our neighbours died. Didn't know the cause at first but knew she had breast cancer some years back and a stroke late last year.

 

Turns out this fucking virus finished her off. Nice lass, early fifties. RIP.

Had the Oxford vaccine today. Unlike some others I know I wasn’t given a definite date for having my second dose. The nurse said they’ll contact me the same way they did for this one, because, and I quote “It may be in 12 weeks time but it may only be in 6. That’s all up in the air right now”.

I lost my mum to the virus yesterday. She was 86 and had been in a care home for just coming up to six years suffering from alzheimers.

The care home seemed to be keeping the virus at bay up until a couple of weeks ago and then my mum tested positive around ten days ago. She seemed to be doing ok but then in a space of less than 24 hrs she deteriorated quickly.

We got a call from them saying she was really poorly so we hurried up there and myself, dad and brother were allowed in separately for 15 mins to say our goodbyes. Within a couple of hours she had passed away :(

    • I have to agree. I’d like stats on every teams’ home performance this season. I suspect confidence is short in all teams at home, due to exactly that- no home advantage. Likewise, teams’ away form must surely have taken a turn upwards. We’ve lost most of our games in 2021, precisely because we’ve been at an empty Anfield more times than on the road. It must be a factor.
    • Last time I listen to Twitter over a player...   Got to be honest I hadn’t heard of him till we were linked with him but after reading and listening to everything about him I was expecting some sort of Xavi , Inesta type player who would dictate the pace and flow of every game with nobody able to lay a glove on him. What I’m seeing is a guy who struggles every game and more often that not is slow and ponderous on the ball and like the rest of the team looks a yard off the pace. As has been said maybe judge him next season but even last night we looked slightly better when he went off which admittedly isn’t saying much.
    • Yep.   I'd rather finish 10th and just reset in the League, if only with the current injured lads back.   See how Jota and Thiago go - with Virgil, Gomes/Matip (between the two of them, that's hopefully makes the "other" Henderson and Fabinho all fit again.   Almost like, forget this League season, and try and start again - the way we simply couldn't the minute VvD went down and others followed. (I know there was the Aston Villa result, but fuck that.)   Just start again with as many back as possible, fuck Europe completely, and see whether the nucleus of 19/20 can somehow climb the mountain again under Klopp.    FSG won't buy anyone, and let's just pray they don't sell anyone good.    
    • As shite as we were tonight against Chelsea I fail to see what the difference is between the handball given against Ryan Bertrand (Southampton v Wolves )  and the one not given against Kante.   Happens after 1 min 20   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0wMdolT4_a8&feature=onebox
