    The World Health Organisation (WHO) warned governments on Wednesday
    against easing coronavirus restrictions too soon as Europe faces a new
    rise in infections fueled by the more contagious Delta variant.

    "The world is at a perilous point in this pandemic," WHO chief Tedros
    Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters at a press briefing.

    "Some countries with high vaccination coverage are now planning to roll
    out booster shots in the coming months and are dropping public health
    social measures and relaxing as if the pandemic is already over."

    "However, compounded by fast-moving variants, and shocking inequity in
    vaccination, far too many countries in many regions of the world are
    seeing sharp spikes in cases and hospitalisation," the WHO
    director-general Dr Tedros said.

    "There has been a 33% increase [in new infections] in the European
    region in the last week," warned WHO emergencies head Michael Ryan.


    "Making assumptions that transmission will not increase as we're opening >>> up because of the vaccine is a false assumption," he said.

    "I would urge extreme caution in the complete lifting of public health
    and social measures at this time because there are consequences for
    that," Ryan told reporters.

    Claudia, a 26-year-old beauty worker, dreads it when her clients ask to
    go to the toilet. “It’s a whole other thing to clean,” she says. “They
    could have touched anything in there. I have to wipe down the whole
    thing with antibacterial spray and wipes.”

    It is her job to maintain stringent cleaning protocols at the London
    skincare clinic where she works. When clients arrive for their
    appointments, Claudia checks them in, offers them a drink – the clinic
    only uses disposable cups or plastic water bottles – and takes them
    through to the treatment room.

    Once her colleague is performing their treatment, Claudia begins
    furiously scrubbing every surface the customer could conceivably have
    touched.

    After the customer leaves, Claudia scours the treatment room and
    replaces all the towels before wiping down the pump dispenser on the
    antibacterial hand gel visitors use when arriving. Then, when a new
    customer arrives, the process begins again. “I’ve had a few clients
    saying they feel really safe in here,” Claudia says, “because they know
    we are really careful and cautious about sanitising everything.”

    Advertisement
    Firefighters struggle to contain exploding northern California wildfire
    Which makes it strange that the one measure that would contribute most
    to the safety of the clients and workers in Claudia’s clinic isn’t being >>> implemented: ventilation.

    Covid-19 is an airborne disease that is principally transmitted through
    respiratory droplets, as well as aerosols, that can linger in the air
    for many minutes after an infected person has left a room, and travel
    metres in distance. The most effective way to minimise the risk of Covid >>> transmission in indoor settings is to open as many windows and doors as
    possible and mandate mask use.

    But, although a window at the back of the clinic is open, the front door >>> is closed. “We can’t have the door at the front open,” Claudia says,
    “because we’re on the main road. It’s more the security element than
    anything. Someone could just walk straight in … it’s probably not as
    well ventilated as we would like.”

    What Claudia is performing on behalf of the customers who frequent her
    skincare clinic is “hygiene theatre”. The term was first coined by the
    Atlantic writer Derek Thompson in a July 2020 essay, in which he defined >>> hygiene theatre as Covid safety protocols “that make us feel safer, but
    don’t actually do much to reduce risk, even as more dangerous activities >>> are still allowed”.

    Hygiene theatre is plastic facial visors that do not protect wearers >>>from breathing in infected air or contaminating the people around them.
    It is single-use cutlery and disposable menus in restaurants and shields >>> between tables. It is staff fastidiously cleaning communal touchpoints
    in pubs while maskless groups chant football songs at full volume. It is >>> hazmat suit-wearing officials fumigating entire streets with
    disinfectant. It is gyms that require people to wipe down every piece of >>> equipment they touch, but do not make them wear masks. It is
    quarantining your post by the front door and wiping down your groceries
    with bleach. All well-intentioned, but mostly ineffectual, gestures that >>> make us feel safe, but do not keep us safe from the threat posed by
    Covid-19.

    As England hurtles towards the removal of virtually all Covid
    restrictions on 19 July, with the other devolved nations likely to
    follow, albeit at a more cautious pace, a mantra of personal
    responsibility is being promoted by the government. Masks will be
    voluntary; social distancing scrapped; businesses no longer under any
    obligation to increase the ventilation in their premises.

    But infections are rising exponentially, and only just over half of the
    total UK population have received two doses of the vaccine. From now on, >>> the individual decisions we take about how to stay safe in public spaces >>> will have powerful real-world consequences. As we enter the third wave
    of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are rushing towards a dangerous new phase
    in which hygiene theatre can do even more damage than it has.

    Hygiene theatre builds on a concept originated by the security expert
    Bruce Schneier in his 2003 book, Beyond Fear. Schneier coined the term
    “security theatre” to describe the safety measures implemented at
    airports after the 9/11 terror attacks, such as banning nail scissors
    and cigarette lighters. In reality, these measures were pointless: a
    complicated charade to reassure nervous passengers rather than anything
    grounded in reality. They also came at a huge cost to taxpayers – the US >>> has spent more than $100bn on aviation security since 9/11.

    Schneier agrees that Covid-19 has ushered in an era of hygiene theatre.
    “Like security theatre,” he says, “hygiene theatre comes from bad risk
    analysis – really, from ignorance.” At the beginning of the pandemic,
    Schneier says, this was understandable. “Nobody knew anything,” he says. >>> “We were all confused about what the right thing was to do. We
    legitimately didn’t know.”

    According to the CDC, the chance of contracting Covid-19 from a single
    infected surface is less than 1 in 10,000

    In those fear-filled days of February and March 2020, many experts and
    healthcare authorities believed that Covid-19 was primarily transmitted
    through droplets, through skin-on-skin contact, such as shaking hands,
    being coughed on by an infected person or touching something they had
    recently touched. (Infection via contaminated surfaces is known as
    fomite transmission.) Academics told the public not to bother wearing
    masks, as the virus was not airborne, so masks would be futile.

    This is why all the public health messaging from this time was about
    minimising direct contact. “Hands, face, space,” we repeated like a
    magic spell, as we shopped in supermarkets without face masks, pausing
    in poorly ventilated aisles to sanitise our hands. (Masks were not
    mandated on public transport and hospitals in England until 15 June, and >>> in shops from 24 July.) Cabinet ministers at daily coronavirus press
    conferences persistently reminded the public to wash their hands.

    Lost in this was any recognition of the dangers of airborne Covid-19
    transmission. “Basic hand hygiene,” says Dr Christine Peters, a
    consultant medical microbiologist and virologist at Glasgow NHS trust.
    “That message got out very early, and that became the fixation of the
    public and politicians. But it was to the detriment of the other
    important message, which is: think about the air.” The World Health
    Organization (WHO) did not acknowledge the risk of airborne transmission >>> until July 2020; in the US, the Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention (CDC) acknowledged that fomite transmission of Covid-19
    “isn’t thought to be the main way the virus spreads” in May 2020, and
    updated its guidance to include airborne transmission in October 2020.
    The UK government first acknowledged the risk of airborne Covid-19
    transmission in about November 2020, although it was not until March
    2021, more than a year since the pandemic first hit UK shores, that it
    finally published guidance on ventilation in indoor settings.

    According to the CDC, the chance of contracting Covid-19 from a single
    infected surface is less than 1 in 10,000. And yet we remain obsessed
    with fomite transmission of Covid-19, as do our elected leaders. In
    June, a glove-wearing Boris Johnson was filmed wiping down a plastic
    chair, in a worrying indication of the prime minister’s lack of
    understanding. And when the G7 met in Cornwall, news cameras broadcast
    footage of hotel staff wiping down railings outside the hotel hosting
    the summit, in a bit of high-profile hygiene theatre.

    Even at the government press conference announcing the relaxation of
    restrictions on 5 July, the chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, talked
    about handwashing, but not ventilation. “One of the problems we had from >>> the beginning, that was critical at the time and actually still is
    critical, is senior people did not understand well enough the problem of >>> … it being airborne,” said the former government aide Dominic Cummings
    in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it excerpt from his marathon select committee >>> appearance in May.

    For some people who are susceptible to obsessive-compulsive disorder, it >>> has been devastating
    Advertisement

    How to explain this continued misapprehension? “Shakespeare puts it
    well,” says Dr Emanuel Goldman, a microbiologist at Rutgers. “What is
    done cannot be undone. There was a great preoccupation with fomite
    transmission at the beginning of the pandemic. And that stuck.” Goldman
    was a leading voice challenging hygiene theatre throughout the pandemic. >>> In July 2020, he wrote a sharp commentary for the Lancet Infectious
    Diseases, calling into question the then-received wisdom that Covid-19
    could be transmitted by infected surfaces. “When the pandemic started,”
    he says, “my mother-in-law, who lives with us, was saying that we needed >>> to wash the groceries and disinfect the mail. As a scientist, it seemed
    extreme, so I decided to look at the literature. And when I did, I was
    horrified to see that the basis for those interventions was very weak.”

    Since then, Goldman has campaigned for an end to hygiene theatre,
    publishing in medical journals and reviewing the academic literature on
    fomite transmission. “The battle continues,” he says, telling me that
    the WHO continues to overemphasise the risk of Covid-19 transmission >>>from contaminated surfaces. In the UK, a similar role has been played by
    the “fresh air” campaign, run by a group of frontline NHS workers
    arguing for greater recognition of the dangers of airborne Covid
    transmission in hospital settings, and better masks for NHS staff.

    Many would argue that hygiene theatre is benign. Public toilets are
    cleaner than they have ever been. “One legacy of the pandemic is that
    general hygiene levels will increase,” says Dr Eilir Hughes of the NHS
    fresh air campaign. “I don’t like security theatre when it’s expensive,” >>> says Schneier, “and the government is making the taxpayer pay for it.
    But if it’s someone wiping down their groceries because it makes them
    feel better, go to town.” Peters is sanguine about cleaning protocols in >>> healthcare settings in particular. “Trying to maintain a clean
    environment in a hospital setting is fair enough.”

    But hygiene theatre can lull people into a false sense of security. “I
    roll my eyes when I see people walking around in visors,” sighs Hughes,
    “because it’s such a shame.” There have been Covid outbreaks in
    restaurants where workers used only plastic visors, instead of face
    masks. (After one such outbreak in a Swiss hotel, local health officials >>> cautioned the public against wearing facial visors.) Hughes feels
    similarly about hand sanitiser. “It gives people this sense of an
    invisible cloak.”

    ‘I’ve seen a lot of people who’ve had really bad dermatitis because of
    this obsession with hand hygiene.’

    Hygiene theatre can be actively dangerous because it prevents people >>>from making informed choices about the levels of risk they’re willing to
    accept in their lives. “Your feelings of safety have to be
    science-based,” says Peters. “People can make their own judgment calls
    about the risks they are willing to tolerate, but the key is for people
    to understand how Covid spreads.” She fears that hygiene theatre causes
    people to avoid taking the mitigating measures that actually would
    reduce risk, such as opening windows or investing in high-efficiency
    particulate air purifiers. “In a restaurant,” Peters says, “instead of
    looking at how many hand sanitisers there are on the table, people
    should be looking at reassurances around the air exchanges.” With all
    restrictions on indoor contact likely to cease in England on 19 July,
    correctly assessing the level of risk in any given setting will be
    crucial. In short, it’s time to finally do away with hygiene theatre.

    In addition, all those antibacterial wipes and single-use plastics are
    environmentally ruinous. “It’s the waste we’re creating that I find
    annoying, more than anything else,” Claudia says. Goldman says that
    public institutions are spending vast sums on disinfectants and
    cleaners. “For a year, the New York subway closed every night for deep
    cleaning,” he says. “That cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Money
    doesn’t grow on trees for public institutions.”

    Transport for London installed more than 200 ultraviolet sanitising
    devices on 110 escalators on the London underground, even as the
    transport authority has to find £900m of savings or new income over the
    coming year. Vendors of sanitiser, antibacterial wipes and cleaning
    products post record profits: the manufacturers of Dettol and Lysol
    recorded their highest-ever sales growth in 2020, largely due to the
    pandemic.

    It kind of makes you feel safer. Even though it’s completely illogical
    Hughes is a practising GP. “I’ve seen a lot of people who’ve had really
    bad dermatitis and skin irritation because of this obsession with hand
    hygiene. And for people who are susceptible to obsessive-compulsive
    disorder, particularly around hygiene, it’s been absolutely
    devastating,” he says. For people with multiple chemical sensitivity
    (MCS), too, an extreme sensitivity to fragranced products – such as
    disinfectants, soaps or detergents – the hygiene theatre of the Covid-19 >>> pandemic has been a nightmare.

    “It’s unbearable,” sighs Anna Meyerson, a 59-year-old dentist from
    Westchester, Pennsylvania. First diagnosed with MCS in 2016, Meyerson
    has been essentially housebound for years. “There’s only one place I can >>> eat near me,” she says, “and it took me years to get them to stop using
    air fresheners.” But the pandemic has exacerbated her condition. Before, >>> her husband could do the food shopping without incident. “Now, with
    Covid, they fumigate and disinfect everything,” she says, “and that
    permeates my husband’s clothes and makes me sick. Before, when he came
    back from the store, it would be fine. Now he has to shower.” She is
    desperate for hygiene theatre to stop. “They are killing me with all
    these chemicals.”

    How to explain this befuddling attachment to hygiene theatre when we
    know that it does not measurably keep us safe, comes at an exorbitant
    cost and can be measurably damaging to some people? “People are keeping
    it up because it’s largely self-soothing,” says Schneier. “This is how I >>> feel better.”

    “Even though I know in my head that wiping everything down makes no
    difference,” says Claudia, “it kind of makes you feel safer. Even though >>> it’s completely illogical … it’s like, peace of mind.”

    At its heart, hygiene theatre is a perhaps inevitable response to the
    worst public health crisis in a century. Because when events career out
    of control, humans respond the only way they know how: by attempting to
    impose order upon chaos, one Dettol wipe at a time.

    Some names have been changed.

    “It Needs To Be Hard For People To Remain Unvaccinated”: Making The Case >>> For Covid Challenges

    Facebook screenshot
    Dr. Leana Wen, CNN analyst and Distinguished Fellow at the Fitzhugh
    Mullan Institute of Health Workforce Equity at George Washington
    University, has caused a stir due to her recent declaration on CNN that
    “it needs to be hard for people to remain unvaccinated.” With France
    implementing a mandatory “health pass” and private companies like Morgan >>> Stanley requiring vaccinations for employees to return to work, we can
    expect more protests and challenges around the world. Those cases are
    likely to focus on whether mandatory requirements are based on medical
    or political imperatives. Wen’s comment is likely to be repeated in many >>> filings as another case of “saying the quiet part out loud.” She appears >>> to advocate measures defined to coerce people to take vaccinations due
    to the continuing refusal of a sizable number of people.

    Wen is a well-known medical analyst and the former head of Planned
    Parenthood. She is a visiting professor at George Washington University. >>>
    Wen made clear that health measures should be used to make life hard for >>> people who refuse the vaccine so that they yield to public demands:
    “[b]asically, we need to make getting vaccinated the easy choice.” In
    the Washington Post, Wen also called for “Biden to make the case for
    vaccine requirements.”

    There is already open pressure from the White House on private companies >>> to require vaccinations. Morgan Stanley responded by doing just that
    this week. They can likely do so. The most serious challenges could come >>>from those with religious objections. However, even if they are allowed
    to work remotely, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman stated in July that
    “If you want to get paid New York rates, you work in New York. None of
    this, ‘I’m in Colorado…and getting paid like I’m sitting in New York
    City. Sorry, that doesn’t work.” The message could not be clearer that
    working remotely will come at a penalty.

    The Biden White House is clearly concerned that making vaccines
    mandatory will cause not just court challenges but a public backlash.
    However, such mandatory programs have been upheld. As I discussed in a
    column last year, there is a 1905 case where the Supreme Court upheld a
    state mandatory vaccination program of school children for small pox in
    Massachusetts. In Jacobson v. Massachusetts (1905), the Court found that >>> such programs are the quintessential state power rather than a federal
    power. It also held that “every well-ordered society charged with the
    duty of conserving the safety of its members the rights of the
    individual in respect of his liberty may at times, under the pressure of >>> great dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by
    reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand.” >>> States are allowed to subject citizens to restraints to protect “general >>> comfort, health, and prosperity of the State.”

    The fear is that, as with social media companies carrying out censorship >>> of political and social viewpoints, companies will now serve as
    surrogates for the state on vaccinations. The Administration would
    prefer to do precisely what Wen advocated: ratchet up the private
    penalties and difficulties for anyone who wants to remain unvaccinated.

    The problem is when you have leading analysts arguing for such measures
    as coercive devices. While there is considerable deference on such
    matters, the courts could take note of such demands to make life hard on >>> those who are not “getting with the program.”

    As of July 11, a total of 159,266,536 Americans have been fully
    vaccinated. That is 48 percent of the country’s population. When you
    consider the extremely high rate of vaccination for those over 65, the
    percentage of adults under 65 is even smaller. Despite all of the press
    and bizarre reward systems, the government is clearly hitting a wall
    with many people declining the vaccines. (For the record, I took the
    vaccine and all of my family has been vaccinated).

    That is a sizable number of voters and the Democrats are leery of openly >>> forcing vaccines before the 2022 election. That is why the push is to
    make life more difficult through private companies. However, if these
    measures are viewed as designed to coerce, courts may be more
    scrutinizing of the public health necessity for the measures.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who

    It is feared the nation will suffer one of the worst influenza outbreaks >>> in decades due to Covid lockdowns causing a huge drop in immunity
    against other viruses.

    And flu isn't the only threat, according to the report by the Academy of >>> Medical Sciences, which said the NHS could be crippled by a
    triple-whammy of Covid, flu and other seasonal viruses.

    Modelling of how bad influenza could strike say the death toll could be
    twice as bad as normal, with flu typically kills between 10 to 30,000
    people annually.

    The AMS report, which was commissioned by England's chief scientific
    adviser Sir Patrick Vallance, called for ministers to start treating flu >>> like Covid, saying usual death tolls from the seasonal virus are
    unacceptable.

    It means Boris Johnson — who has repeatedly pledged to follow the
    science — could face pressure to adopt draconian measures to tackle
    other viruses in the future.

    In recent weeks, the PM has vowed to 'learn to live' with the
    coronavirus like the flu, which raised hopes that the end of lockdowns
    was finally in sight.

    The graphs estimate daily Covid cases, hospital admissions, long-Covid
    cases and infections in England in winter. The purple line shows the
    best case scenario, the blue line is the reasonable worst case scenario
    and the green line shows what they think will happen if 'Freedom Day'
    was pushed to September 6. In all projections, the peak is projected to
    take place in August and subsequent waves take of next March, but the
    scientists said they could not rule out another winter wave. The experts >>> predict that the peak in deaths will be much lower than last winter, but >>> hospital admissions could rise to similar levels and those living with
    long-Covid could double in number +1

    The graphs show the two different scenarios considered by the
    scientists. The first shows what they think could happen if people in
    England still have some immunity from the flu, but natural waning is
    happening which makes more people susceptible to catch the flu over
    time. In this situation, transmission would likely take off in winter
    and infections and deaths would double compared to previous years. In
    scenario two, the scientists estimated that if flu immunity dropped in
    the population, the epidemic would most likely take off this summer, and >>> around 1.5 times more people would die and go to hospital. A summer
    outbreak is less severe, because the R number is lower at this time of
    year, so despite more people being susceptible to infection due to a
    lack of immunity, less people would catch it

    Society has never shut down in the face of a flu crisis, although NHS
    hospitals have had to cancel tens of thousands of operations in the
    middle of influenza outbreaks.

    The AMS report looked at the Covid and non-Covid health challenges
    facing the NHS this winter, what risks they pose and what can be done to >>> mitigate them.

    All remaining lockdown restrictions are due to be lifted in England on
    Monday, Wales will follow suit in August and Scotland and Northern
    Ireland are expected to relax their rules significantly in the coming weeks.

    Ministers are prepared to tolerate over 100,000 cases per day and No10's >>> top experts believe there could be at least 1,000 to 2,000 daily
    hospital admissions.

    The NHS waiting list already stands at a record 5.3million, with the
    pandemic and the disruption lockdowns have caused on non-Covid care
    having worsened the crisis.

    New Health Secretary Sajid Javid has said this list could go to more
    than 13million by the end of the year.

    Conclusions in the AMS report were made by a panel of 29 experts,
    ranging from virologists to immunologists and NHS doctors.

    The report warned the NHS is already gearing up to face pressures from a >>> third Covid wave, which could leave tens of thousands hospitalised.

    Thousands fewer beds will be available in hospitals, with health bosses
    forced to comply with Covid social distancing restrictions.

    Existing staff shortage crises will pile on further pressure, with
    84,000 vacant roles throughout the health service, the report warned.

    The NHS also faces the threat of an increase in heart attacks and
    strokes because the pandemic led to a decline in physical health.

    On top of that, the threat of flu and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
    could pile even more stress on the NHS.

    The experts warned deaths and hospitalisations from flu and RSV could
    double if there is a surge in infections driven by a drop in immunity
    caused by low infection levels last year.

    The experts estimated that if people's immunity against respiratory
    syncytial virus (RSV) has dropped, cases of the virus in children under
    five in England will double. If protection has not waned, the scientists >>> estimated cases would jump by 50 per cent. The virus usually causes
    20,000 under-5s to be admitted to hospital every year

    20,000 under-5s to be admitted to hospital every year

    What is RSV?
    Respiratory syncytial virus (known as RSV) causes an infection called
    Bronchiolitis. The infection is spread between people by coughing and
    sneezing.

    The infection starts with cold symptoms (runny nose, cough, sneezing and >>> fever). Warning signs include:

    * Fast or laboured breathing

    * Wheezing sound when breathing out

    * Trouble feeding (for babies, this is because they only breathe through >>> their nose).

    Symptoms are often worse at night. Illness usually starts to improve
    after two to three days.

    Infection may be worse and last for longer in very young children
    (under three months), premature babies or children with lung or heart
    problems.

    No medicine can be taken to cure bronchiolitis.

    Children's paracetamol (in recommended doses) may help your child feel
    more comfortable if they have a fever.

    Infants with a severe infection may be admitted to hospital. In
    hospital, treatment may include oxygen and fluids. Fluids are usually
    given through a nasogastric tube (a tube that goes into the nose).

    Make sure your child is getting enough fluids. Smaller feeds given more
    often may help.

    Salt water solution available from pharmacies (e.g. Fess) dropped or
    sprayed in each nostril before feeding may help clear the nose.

    Keep your child away from cigarette smoke.

    Prevent the spread of infection by keeping your child away from other
    small children especially for the first few days of illness.



    Cases of the common viruses plummeted to the lowest levels ever recorded >>> in the UK last year, as measures to stop Covid infections had a knock-on >>> effect.

    Flu deaths could reach 60,000 in England, more than double the 10,000 to >>> 30,000 that it kills on an average every year, scientists found.

    RSV could be more than two times worse this year, with the virus usually >>> causing 20,000 infected children under 5 to be admitted to hospital.

    They also warned hospital admissions from Covid could hit up to six
    thousand per day.

    But the experts warned their figures are estimates, as they do not know
    how many people are immune from the viruses.

    The flu is also 'incredibly unpredictable', so it is very difficult to
    estimate how bad it will actually be.

    Case numbers will also depend on any measures taken to mitigate
    infections, they said.

    Covid and the other two respiratory illnesses have symptoms that mimic
    each other, so it is important to have tests that distinguish between
    them, the scientists said.

    This could be done though multiplex testing, which is a single test that >>> can identify up to 10 different viruses.

    One of these could be developed to test for Covid, flu and RSV at the
    same time, so the best treatment and advice can be provided, the experts >>> said.

    Quick detection of flu cases would let doctors treat the flu with
    antivirals — which work best if given within the first 48 hours of
    catching it.

    But experts said it is unclear whether these would be rolled out in
    England because they are expensive and it would be 'an effort' to spread >>> them out.

    The group advised people to continue with behaviours they picked up
    during the pandemic to protect against other respiratory disease.

    Professor Sir Stephen Holgate, chair of the advisory group, said: 'Is it >>> acceptable at the present time looking backwards to have all these
    viruses swashing around at winter driving the NHS to breaking point? No. >>>
    'We need to respect our lungs now. We deserve to have a change in how we >>> operate as a society to control these viruses.'

    Professor Dame Anne Johnson, president of the academy, claimed social
    distancing, face masks and working from home are sensible measure that
    also protect from other respiratory viruses.

    'All the things we do for Covid - like staying away from people when
    sick - we need to do when dealing with any viral infection, because you
    can pass it on,' she said.

    Everyone in the UK 'thought it was all very strange' when countries that >>> experienced SARS outbreaks kept wearing masks, but now everyone has
    learned about how viruses are transmitted and have adopted habits like
    washing their hands more, Dame Johnson said.

    She added that said she hopes the country will take forward some of
    these behavioural changes, but can't predict if that will happen.

    In addition to the risk from Covid, flu and RSV, the academy warned NHS
    also has to prepare for a Covid booster programme, a major flu jab
    rollout and catch up missed routine vaccinations.

    The health service also has to improve infection prevention control and
    surveillance because up to 10 per cent of all patients admitted to
    hospital caught the virus while they were there.

    An NHS spokesperson said: 'NHS staff have worked tirelessly throughout
    the pandemic responding to increased demand by expanding critical care
    capacity by 50 per cent in hospitals, managing admissions through mutual >>> aid and working with the independent sector.

    'And ahead of winter, the NHS will continue with tried and tested plans
    to support hospitals so that they can continue to offer patients the
    care they need while restoring routine operations back to pre-pandemic
    levels and vaccinating the country against Covid.'

    The UK government’s decision to end most Coronavirus restrictions from
    19th July in England has attracted considerable backlash. Labour is
    opposed, the international press has been fairly negative, and 1200
    scientists and other individuals have signed an open letter calling for
    the re-opening to be delayed. This blogger believes the government got
    this one right: seeing that Covid is unlikely to ever disappear from
    Britain, let alone from Planet Earth, and that 88% of the adult
    population have received at least one vaccine dose (68% received both),
    there is no convincing case to continue with the restrictions.

    To start, we must dispel with the pretense that there is a scientific
    consensus in favour of keeping the restrictions. Experts are divided,
    and lifting the lockdown is a fundamentally a political decision anyway, >>> involving a complex, unquantifiable judgement of conflicting values and
    priorities, rather than a scientific numbers-crunching exercise.
    Throughout the pandemic, public discussion of the emergency measures has >>> been poisoned by pretense that “The Science“ always requires us to
    implement and maintain the harshest restrictions, and anything shy of
    that is an anti-scientific cop-out. To move on, public opinion must
    recognise that the lockdown measures have had terrifying side effects,
    which public policy must careful weigh up against their – often
    uncertain and unquantifiable – benefits.

    The decision to open up is informed, at its core, by the realization
    that Covid is unlikely to be eradicated in the foreseeable future, and
    that it will remain an endemic virus that ebbs and flows, like other
    viruses do. This is not a controversial view – the overwhelming majority >>> of scientists, even of the pro-restrictions variety, accept this. The
    vision of Zero Covid – the idea that one day, the final Covid patient
    would recover and there would be no more transmission of Covid in the
    community – has taken several fatal blows recently with vaccines seeming >>> less effective at stopping infection (they are still incredibly good at
    stopping serious disease, hospitalization or death), and with a number
    of Zero Covid success stories (the likes of Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand,
    Australia) experiencing record outbreaks. Even leading Zero Covid
    proponents seem to be wavering in their faith, admitting if they had
    their way, some restrictions would continue forever, which they still
    see as preferable to accepting endemic Covid.

    Perpetual restrictions would be unpopular, and opponents of the
    re-opening generally do not propose this. This is a fundamental flaw of
    their reasoning – if we accept that (a) Covid will not be eradicated and >>> (b) we must re-open at some point, why is re-opening at a future date
    preferable to 19th July?

    Some say that the re-opening should be delayed until more people have
    received their second vaccine doses. This is unconvincing – data from
    the UK and elsewhere shows that Covid can still spread in an
    overwhelmingly vaccinated population (Gibraltar). Since everyone
    statistically at risk from Covid has received their two shots a long
    time ago, hospitalizations and deaths remain very low, despite the
    ongoing “case-demic“. Delaying the re-opening by say a couple of months
    to September would mean we would lift restrictions just as the school
    year starts and with the winter flu season imminent (some experts think
    this year’s flu season will be particularly bad given the lack of
    immunity in the population due to the lockdown). Surely, most people
    opposed to re-opening in July would also be opposed to re-opening in
    September.

    Other propose to drop some restrictions while also keeping some – masks, >>> for example. Given the government’s usual flip-flopping and inability to >>> stick with anything, it looks like post-Freedom Day, Britain will have a >>> confusing patchwork of mask rules, where masks are required on certain
    train lines but not others. It’s hard to see what people think this will >>> achieve – if our current restrictions aren’t stopping the outbreak, why
    would a much-watered down version do the trick?

    It is natural that people want a more gradual return to normality.
    People are still terrified of Covid, despite the successful vaccine
    roll-out (the government’s fear-based advertisement campaigns earlier in >>> the year probably did not help things). Public opinion overestimates the >>> efficacy of many of the anti-pandemic measures and is hesitant to throw
    them all out (surface disinfection has been proven useless, the plastic
    dividers so prevalent in shops and restaurants are probably making
    things worse, and the data on cloth masks is far from clear-cut).

    Endemic Covid means that all of us will likely be exposed to the virus
    multiple times in our lives. Delaying the re-opening cannot change this
    fact. The pandemic emergency measures have gone on for 17 months – it is >>> high time to move on.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.K. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    Elaine with her two children Harley and Gracie
    image captionElaine says repeated periods of self-isolation are a worry
    for her children's mental health
    Almost a quarter of pupils in England were out of school last week,
    according to the latest official attendance figures showing the impact
    of Covid.

    In secondary schools, the absence rate was nearer a third of pupils,
    while in primaries it was 17%.

    Elaine Blowers and her family in Hampshire are among many affected by
    having to self isolate.

    She says each time it happens, the mental health of her daughter Gracie
    and son Harley is affected.

    There were 1.7m pupils out of school, up from 1.5m the week before -
    with the latest figures including over 1m off because of Covid-related
    reasons, although only 47,000 were confirmed as positive cases.

    There were also about a further 661,500 pupils out of school for
    non-Covid related reasons.

    These figures show a snapshot of the situation in state schools last
    Thursday - before changes introduced from 19 July, which are intended to >>> reduce the numbers having to be sent home.

    Mrs Blowers, a mum of two young, primary-aged children in Andover told
    how her son and daughter had to isolate due to one person in their class >>> testing positive. Both children took a PCR test and were Covid-negative. >>>
    'Begrudgingly isolating'
    Her son, Harley, has special needs and has missed out on the additional
    help he gets in school and has not really got on well with home-learning. >>>
    He has been slapping his own face in distress, she says.

    And she explained how her daughter, Gracie, experiences anxiety every
    time she has to isolate - developing nightmares and stomach pains.

    "What is frustrating is that it is not the first time this has
    happened," she says.

    "Every time we have always been negative and felt very frustrated that
    my children have had to be locked up and I've had to lose an income
    unnecessarily."

    Elaine runs her own business as a childminder working from home, so
    every time her children need to isolate, it impacts her business.

    School run
    IMAGE COPYRIGHTGETTY IMAGES
    She said the current situation was tricky for parents.

    "I know some parents have approached schools to keep children off so not >>> to affect holidays. But other parents are still choosing to keep
    children in school.

    "We've stuck to the rules but begrudgingly."

    Elaine says both her children have really suffered by not being in
    school, but she does not blame the school which she says has been
    "fantastic" in offering support.

    "The prime minister needs to get a grip and allow for people that are
    contacted to get a PCR test and if negative return to work or school.
    This needs to change now - 16 August is too late," she says, referring
    to the date when Covid self-isolation rules are expected to change.

    "It is having such a negative impact on businesses and people's,
    including children's, mental health."

    'Grim end'
    The National Association of Head Teachers' general secretary Paul
    Whiteman said the government's decision to end "bubbles" and school
    isolation requirements was intended to stop so many missing school.

    But he warned that rising case numbers would mean more disruption,
    unless there was action to prevent transmission in schools.

    "The government's own modelling predicts that the number of cases among
    children and young people is only going to get worse by the start of
    next term," he added.

    Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and College >>> Leaders, said the latest figures "bring a year of unprecedented
    educational disruption to a grim end".

    He said schools and colleges needed substantial financial and practical
    support for on-site testing for students and ventilation systems

    "This work cannot be done on the cheap and the government needs to stop
    counting the pennies and address the situation with a proper injection
    of support and funding," he added.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.K. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
    best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, & Delta
    lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current COVID
    vaccines no longer effective.

    Indeed, I am wonderfully hungry ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    and hope you, Michael, also have a healthy appetite too.

    So how are you ?

    I am wonderfully hungry!

    Upon arrival at the Tokyo Olympics, common sense is nowhere to be found

    Members of the media go through a quarantine paperwork check at Haneda
    Airport ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
    LUCY NICHOLSON/REUTERS
    For the thousands of journalists coming to Japan to cover the Olympics,
    one condition of entry was a short, hard quarantine. No one would be
    allowed to leave their hotel room for three days after their arrival.
    Except there were workarounds. The administratively inclined could apply >>> for an exemption. Those who require food to live were allowed to go to
    the store. Essentially, anyone who was determined to leave could.
    Some went several steps further. By and large, Tokyo is dry for the
    duration of the Olympics.
    Nonetheless, strongly worded e-mails were sent warning resourceful
    foreign day drinkers that they were bringing “a grave reputational risk” >>> to themselves, their organization and the Tokyo 2020 Games.
    According to the warning, they’d been spotted all over the city. Which
    may not have been the smartest thing to announce publicly if deterrence
    was the goal.
    By Wednesday, the organizers had scrapped the hard quarantine
    altogether, then said, “[We] deeply apologize for the difficulties you
    have experienced upon arrival.”
    No one seems bothered that COVID-19 has arrived at the Tokyo Olympics
    What to watch at the Tokyo Olympics: Everything you need to know about
    the Summer Games
    As that e-mail hit my inbox, I was standing groggily in another line at
    Haneda Airport. I’m not sure which one. The one with the green form, I
    think. Or maybe the yellow one. People kept handing me forms, then very
    politely asking me why I had the forms they’d just handed me. Huge
    portions of that first hour are a blur of stamps, stapling and people
    taking my phone away from me to do things on it that I could not.
    You’ve been flying for 24 hours, you feel like you’ve been glazed in
    cooking oil, and the only thing you care about is a hot shower and a
    change of clothes.
    So when someone holds up a form that is entirely in Japanese and asks if >>> you’ve filled it out, your best guess is, “Where am I exactly?”
    A whole genre of horror stories has sprung up in recent days about how
    long it takes to get out of a Tokyo airport right now. As many as six
    hours after landing. Sometimes eight.
    “I heard nine hours at Narita,” one delighted volunteer told me.
    Sadly, I can’t add to the notes of grievance. My journey through all
    nine circles of bureaucratic hell took three hours from kiosk to kiosk.
    Considering all the nonsense we had to do – verify forms, verify apps,
    get new forms, verify those forms, get our forms all mixed up, get them
    unmixed, spit in a tube, wait to hear how that went, verify more forms,
    get credentialed, clear customs, get fingerprinted and photographed, run >>> the gauntlet at immigration – it’s a wonder it happened so quickly.
    They even managed to hang on to our luggage. A lot of North American
    airports can’t manage that under optimal conditions (I’m looking at you, >>> Tampa).
    Around the time they’d wedged a couple of hundred of us into a smallish
    departure lounge to wait for the results of our rapid COVID-19 tests –
    with the guy next to me, mask off, screaming bloody murder into his
    phone – I’d lost faith in the efficacy of the process. Meanwhile, a guy
    was walking around the room offering plastic face shields to whomever
    wanted one. Screaming Phone Man ignored him, and he ignored Screaming
    Phone Man.
    But after running through the public safety gauntlet, I’ve come to
    understand we all have our roles to play in this farce.
    We, the visitors, come laden down with forms, proving we are
    sufficiently supplicatory.
    They, the hosts, create an infrastructure to process those forms,
    proving they are sufficiently gracious.
    Together, we link arms and pretend we are fighting this thing together,
    leaving unsaid the fact that no one needs to be fighting it at all.
    Sometimes, that teamwork does not make the dream work. For instance, why >>> are foreign visitors banned from using the elevators in the hotel we’re
    staying at? The lovely woman at the check-in was very emphatic on that
    point. Elevators for locals only.
    I’m not complaining, since I could use the cardio. But it still makes no >>> sense. Whether or not you bar us from the elevators, we are still here,
    filling the air in the lobby with our globules, making the breakfast
    nook pestilential and befouling the laundry room.
    Also, if you are that afraid of contagion, maybe the Olympic fortnight
    wasn’t the best time to plan your Harajuku staycation.
    But that’s just common sense, and we are well past that. Olympics-wise,
    we can’t even see common sense in the rear-view anymore.
    Where we are is in the realm of make-believe. The Tokyo Organizing
    Committee makes us believe that it’s really scared, and we pretend we
    won’t sneak out to the bars if Dad takes his eye off us for a second.
    This is why the head of Tokyo 2020, Toshiro Muto, won’t definitively
    promise that the Olympics are going ahead regardless of where the
    COVID-19 numbers end up. It’s not because he’s considering cancellation. >>> That ship has launched.
    It’s because Muto must pretend to consider cancellation, because he is
    pretending to be scared, while we pretend to take him seriously.
    Another for instance. In order to leave the airport, I was jammed onto a >>> bus filled with sweaty, irritated, jet-lagged hacks sitting almost on
    top of one another. But in order to leave the bus, we were told to go
    one at a time and not touch our luggage, but rather wait for it to be
    loaded into a cab, which we would all take singly.
    As we waited, a volunteer regaled us with “fun facts” about Tokyo. Fun
    fact No. 1: “Tokyo is a paradise for foodies.”
    ”WE AREN’T ALLOWED TO GO TO THE RESTAURANTS, MATE,” someone bellowed.
    This was all getting more high-school auditorium by the moment.
    But, like the pretending, the fun facts could not be stopped.
    The IOC pretends to be worried about the athletes. The athletes pretend
    to be worried about security. The security pretends to be worried about
    the “reputational risk to the Tokyo 2020 Games.” And around and around
    we go.
    While we’re all busy pretending, they’ll manage to wedge in a few
    sports. Before you know it, it’ll be over and no one need ever worry
    again about running into me as I take huge, wet breaths in the elevator
    while hanging over the buttons.
    The only people who don’t have to pretend are the local viewers. They’ve >>> all been locked out of the Games. Which means they’ll be enjoying this
    event from the only secure locations at the Olympics: their living
    rooms. No forms required for entry.

    Japan & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    As infections soar to record highs and the vaccine rollout languishes,
    some fear there is no end in sight for the pandemic

    Steven Borowiec in Seoul
    Wed 28 Jul 2021 19.01 EDT
    Park Eun-sun is facing the most challenging set of circumstances since
    going into business for herself in August of 2020.

    Having kicked off Nostimo, her restaurant in southern Seoul, during the
    coronavirus pandemic, Park has had to work harder to attract customers
    who were reluctant to eat out during a public health crisis, while
    complying with an evolving set of social distancing mandates that
    dictate how many diners she can host and when she can open her doors.

    Now Park is suffering through the toughest restrictions since the start
    of the coronavirus pandemic. Due to an ongoing flareup in cases in the
    South Korean capital, restaurants must close at 10pm and can only have
    parties of one or two patrons for dinner service.

    “Although thankfully Korea has not gone into full lockdown, our fate so
    far has been influenced by government policy,” Park said.

    She is waiting for more of South Korea’s population to get vaccinated, a >>> process she and many others have found frustratingly slow. “Since
    restaurants are still open, it would be nice if restaurant owners and
    employees would be higher on the priority list for the vaccine.
    Unfortunately this has not been the case,” she said.

    In the early stages of the pandemic, South Korea for a time had the
    largest outbreak in the world outside China. The country drew
    international admiration for quickly reining in the first wave of
    infections through an aggressive campaign of testing and contact
    tracing, all without ever enacting stringent lockdown measures like
    mandatory business closures.

    That sheen has come off, as more than a year later, South Korea is
    suffering through its worst wave of coronavirus infections yet, having
    logged 1,896 new cases on Wednesday, the country’s highest daily figure
    ever.


    The national government, led by President Moon Jae-in is the target of
    public discontent, with critics accusing Moon and the ruling party of
    congratulating themselves on those successful early virus containment
    measures while failing to secure sufficient supplies of vaccines to
    allow a return to normal life.

    South Korea currently ranks second-to-last among OECD member countries,
    with only 13.49% of its population fully vaccinated, and critics have
    argued that the government dragged its feet in rolling out the national
    vaccination campaign, leaving the public and small businesses to cope
    with near lockdown measures that have hurt the economy and quality of life. >>>

    The government has signed deals with overseas providers to acquire
    AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, but supply shortages and
    delayed shipments have caused hiccups in the rollout.

    Federal workers must be vaccinated or submit to Covid testing and distancing
    “The current situation of strict social distancing could have been
    avoided if the government had taken a more long-term approach,” said
    Shin Eui-cheol, a professor at the KAIST Graduate School of Medical
    Science & Engineering.

    “One year ago, the number of daily cases was only about 100 and they
    were satisfied with that, thinking that we could just control the
    pandemic. They should have looked ahead and come up with a more active
    strategy to try to terminate the pandemic by acquiring enough vaccines
    much earlier,” Shin said.

    Adding to the discomfort, the current virus spike is coinciding with an
    extreme heatwave, with temperatures in South Korean cities having been
    in the mid- to high thirties amid high humidity over the past week.

    Late July is also the customary peak of holiday season in South Korea,
    and pandemic-related strictures on travel have meant more people are
    either staying home or taking domestic trips instead of going abroad. To >>> limit the spread of the coronavirus, in popular holiday destinations on
    the coast, local officials have banned access to beaches for set periods >>> each day and banned eating and drinking on the beach.

    The social distancing measures and many companies’ work-from-home
    directives have left the streets of Seoul, a typically bustling city, empty.

    highs Photograph: Chris Jung/NurPhoto/REX/Shutterstock
    At Nostimo, Park prepares authentic Greek dishes, with many ingredients
    sourced from a farm outside the city.


    She says that with South Koreans unable to take trips abroad due to the
    pandemic, Nostimo has enjoyed strong demand from grounded travellers.
    “Our restaurant has benefited from visits by Koreans and non-Koreans
    alike wishing to have authentic international food experiences without
    getting on a plane,” she said.

    Throughout the pandemic, one group that has struggled has been the
    medical workers that have led the response to the crisis, often working
    long hours while risking exposure to infection. Doctors have fought with >>> the government over pay and working conditions, and accused the
    government of taking credit for their work.

    “Doctors and nurses who have been treating Covid-19 patients have been
    under a lot of stress, nearing burnout status,” said Park Jae-young, a
    medical doctor and Executive Editor of the Korean Doctors’ Weekly.

    Park said that instead of looking forward to a “post-pandemic era”
    medical professionals are bracing for a future where the coronavirus
    remains a part of their work and life. “Considering the characteristics
    of the coronavirus - its transmission power, mutation patterns, and the
    vaccination rate - it seems that we will live with its effects virtually >>> forever,” he said.

    “It will be impossible for a very, very long time to come for tens of
    thousands of people to take off their masks and gather on a soccer field >>> to cheer, or shake hands with strangers and have heated discussions in
    pubs.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    S. Korea & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who

    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their

    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
    COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    Notorious Australian socialite Anthony Hess unknowingly spread the Delta >>> strain of coronavirus to at least 60 people in a single weekend.

    Hess, 40, best known for his ill-fated friendship with Married At First
    Sight star Stacey Hampton and defeating Sydney PR queen Roxy Jacenko in
    court, fled to Los Angeles last year after a punch-up with his bikie
    boss mate Toby Mitchell.

    As much of the US, including Hess, was vaccinated against Covid, masks
    and lockdowns gave way to boozy parties and nightclub openings.

    However, the country is now gripped by the highly infectious Delta
    strain and many fully vaccinated Americans are catching the virus and
    getting sick.

    Delta is so infectious that it only took one wild weekend on July 9-11
    for Hess to spread it to 20 confirmed cases, and another 40 people who
    now have symptoms.

    'Honestly, I have no idea how many people I infected, I came into
    contact with so many it could be hundreds,' he told Daily Mail Australia. >>>
    'I feel so guilty, I've had dozens of friends message me saying they
    have symptoms, but I'm vaccinated and had no idea I had Covid.'

    The reluctant super-spreader, who had two shots of Moderna, said he only >>> developed symptoms mid-last week, well after his big bender, and spent
    four days in bed barely functional.

    'I basically slept for four days straight without eating, I’m sweating
    so bad, felt like I was dying and lost so much weight,' he said.

    He also suffered the classic blocked nose, sore throat, dry cough, and
    shortness of breath.

    However, he knows without being fully vaccinated - as only 11 per cent
    of Australians are - he would have been in a lot more trouble.

    Hess said his super-spreading and what is happening in Los Angeles
    should be a wakeup call to Australians who don't take the pandemic
    seriously.

    'It just goes to show how easily people can spread the Delta strain
    without knowing,' he said.

    'Everyone in Australia thinks it's a joke, it's not. LA is putting
    restrictions back on. The virus is spreading so fast, people are dying.

    'I didn't take it seriously either, until it happened to me. In
    Australia no-one knows anyone who's had it.'

    Hess said it appeared the Delta variant was overpowering Covid vaccines
    as most of the people he infected were double-jabbed. He now worries
    there will be a massive outbreak.

    'Everyone in Australia is complaining [about lockdowns]? At least the
    government is protecting people.'

    Delta's infection rate in countries with high vaccinations has prompted
    renewed restrictions and mask wearing, and raised concerns immunisations >>> may not be the silver bullet to cure the world of Covid for good.

    Prof Francois Balloux is director of the University College London
    Genetics Institute. His work focuses on the reconstruction of disease
    outbreaks and epidemics. With his colleague Dr Lucy van Dorp, he led the >>> first large-scale sequencing project of the Sars-CoV2 genome. During the >>> pandemic, he has become a prominent scientist on Twitter, where he
    describes himself as a “militant corona centrist”.

    Would you say a new variant of concern is still the major threat to our
    way out of this pandemic?
    We haven’t had one in a while. The four variants of concern all emerged
    in the second half of 2020, and it’s important to keep in mind that
    viruses evolve all the time at a fairly regular pace.

    Advertisement
    ‘I don’t see how it can be safe’: Florida schools on frontlines of
    state’s mask war
    However, with Alpha, something unexpected happened: there was a sudden
    accumulation of mutations. One reasonable hypothesis is that Alpha
    emerged from an infection of an immunocompromised person or someone who
    was infected for a very long period. The other three variants of concern >>> (Beta, Gamma, Delta) emerged through gradual accumulation of mutations.

    So it’s not always predictable?
    It’s extraordinarily difficult to predict a shock like the Alpha
    variant. What is easy to predict is that mutations will continue to
    appear and the virus will progressively drift, with the vaccines
    becoming less effective over time.

    There was a suggestion in a Sage paper that a very lethal variant could
    emerge, while other scientists suggest that the virus has reached its
    “maximum fit”, that if it evolves further it will lose the ability to
    coexist with its human hosts.
    It’s important to balance the scariness of predictions with their
    likelihood. The likelihood of a lineage emerging that is 50 times more
    lethal is extraordinarily implausible. I say that because we have 200
    respiratory viruses in circulation and most of us get infected on a
    regular basis. We’ve never seen that kind of sudden change in mortality. >>> I’m not saying it’s impossible, but you may have a better chance of
    winning the lottery jackpot many times over.

    Where does the emergence of the alpha and delta variants sit on your
    jackpot-winning measure?
    That’s such a difficult question. It is somewhat comparable to asking
    what the chances of someone winning the jackpot are, without having any
    idea about how many numbers there are on the lottery ticket.

    Advertisement
    The Alpha and Delta variants emerged, and they obviously were winning
    combinations of mutations for the virus – though we also know that no
    other comparably transmissible viral lineage has emerged so far, despite >>> millions of infections and a constant influx of mutations.

    Another concern is a mutation that enables the virus to “escape” the
    vaccines…
    Over two million viral samples have been sequenced, and we’ve probably
    already seen all the mutations that are technically possible. From our
    observations, we know that vaccine escape will not appear after one or
    two mutations – it will require an accumulation giving rise to the right >>> combination. We will not go from one day everyone being protected to
    everyone being vulnerable the next. We will have time to update the
    vaccines.

    Also, while a vaccine-escape variant would indeed be able to infect
    vaccinated people far more easily, it would not nullify the protection
    against severe disease and death provided by the vaccine and prior
    infection.

    Where do you stand on vaccinating teenagers?
    This is the mother of all questions. There are people who are very
    passionate on both sides. Given the data available – and not many
    teenagers have been immunised – I think the JCVI has probably been right >>> to err on the side of caution by first recommending the vaccine for
    healthy over-18s, and as more data has become available, to healthy
    over-16s. There is an issue with heart inflammation in younger males
    administered mRNA vaccines. One possible solution could be to give
    teenagers only one dose – most of the side-effects have been registered
    after the second dose. However, a single-dose regime hasn’t been
    trialled or approved yet.

    You have stated that a “non-trivial” number of long-Covid cases are
    psychosomatic.
    We know that infections such as Covid lead to post-viral syndromes. At
    the risk of being insensitive, I would be surprised if there wasn’t a
    link between disease severity and the severity of follow-up symptoms.
    Like tuberculosis or influenza, people who have a severe case should
    expect to take a long time to recover fully. And sometimes recovery is
    never complete.

    I would like to stress: if you have a serious infection, do not
    necessarily expect to be back to full fitness in three months
    The situation is more complicated with a mild infection. Post-viral
    symptoms can happen but it seems relatively implausible to me that this
    would happen very frequently. In all likelihood, some cases are
    psychosomatic – though this doesn’t make the suffering less real for
    those affected or reduce the cost to society. All disease is real,
    irrespective of its root cause.

    There is a mental component to health and disease. Just the fear of
    something bad happening to us can make us feel unwell. A remarkable
    example of this process can be seen in the way over 30% of the people
    who were enrolled in the control arm of the Pfizer vaccine trial
    reported headaches and fatigue, despite not being injected with a vaccine. >>>
    You had a bad bout of Covid – does this inform your view?
    I try to discount my own experience when I think about public health
    issues. That said, I would probably be included as having long Covid
    because six months later I haven’t fully recovered my sense of smell or
    taste.

    There is no such thing as a "psychosomatic" loss of either taste nor
    smell.

    I think we need a meaningful definition that captures whether you
    have regained full fitness. I would like to stress: if you have a
    serious infection, do not necessarily expect to be back to full fitness
    in three months.

    Your Twitter bio states you are a “militant corona centrist”. What do
    you mean by that?
    From the start, the pandemic has been polarising. Some people thought
    we should “let it rip” or “take it on the chin” and others thought we
    should fight to eliminate it everywhere. These camps have fought for 16
    months and it’s pretty toxic. Both are pretty extreme and unrealistic. I >>> always thought very careful mitigation could keep the pandemic under
    control until vaccines arrived. A few countries have come close, such as >>> Singapore, Norway and Denmark.

    The scientist is supposed to revise their conclusions as the evidence
    evolves. Do you feel that scientists on both sides of the debate have
    been holding on to their views in spite of the evidence?
    It’s self-serving to say “they don’t change their mind, I do” – despite
    the fact that I didn’t. Our brains work in a Bayesian way – we have
    priors that influence how we regard new information. As a scientist, it
    is very important not to have overwhelmingly strong priors – you need to >>> be open to surprise and to let your priors be updated by new data. It’s
    important to engage with new evidence. Being dogmatic is problematic.

    This issue is amplified when, as now, scientists are talking directly to >>> the public…
    Before the pandemic, scientists were rarely asked anything, or we were
    listened to in a polite, slightly bored way. But now people are clinging >>> to the words of scientists, which can make it more difficult for them to >>> change their mind. Few scientists have changed their views on Covid but
    when they do it’s often not well received – there’s an element of
    groupthink and for more media-savvy scientists, an expectation from
    their adoring crowd that they’re not meant to do that.

    Neil Ferguson has been criticised for his predictions of 100,000 cases a >>> day after the easing of restrictions on 19 July.
    I know Neil, he was my boss for five years. His predictions were quite
    pessimistic but he tends to be pessimistic – which isn’t a criticism. If >>> you are in a position of authority giving advice to the government you
    really want to err on the side of caution.

    Can you explain what you mean by “scientific populism”?
    As the pandemic has advanced the mood of the public has become darker
    and more fearful and this has created a market for gloom and doom. It’s
    as bad as the effects of the super-optimism at the beginning – stay at
    home for two weeks, it’s a mild disease or wear a mask and it will be
    gone. So I kind of captured the market for corona centrism – not to be
    systematically optimistic or pessimistic and to make it clear there are
    major uncertainties. And this is empowering, because understanding
    things is.

    You’ve often stated that the pandemic will be over by mid to late 2021.
    Do you stand by this?
    Depends on how you quantify it. I would say the pandemic is over when
    Covid-19 doesn’t cause significantly more mortality than other
    respiratory viruses in circulation. This will happen first in places
    such as the UK that have been privileged to get vaccine coverage – I
    expect at the latest early next year.

    Hawaii Limits Indoor Social Gatherings to 10 People. Will More States
    Follow Suit?
    Hawaii Gov. David Ige issued an executive order yesterday imposing a
    raft of new restrictions on businesses and social gatherings.
    CHRISTIAN BRITSCHGI | 8.11.2021 12:55 PM

    reason-mask2
    (ibreakstock/Dreamstime.com)
    Hawaii is bringing back a whole swath of pandemic restrictions on social >>> gatherings and businesses in response to rising COVID-19 cases on the
    island.

    On Tuesday, Hawaii Gov. David Ige, a Democrat, issued an executive order >>> limiting indoor social gatherings to 10 people, and outdoor gatherings
    to 25 people. Restaurants, bars, and other "social establishments"—in
    addition to abiding by those gathering limits—must also require patrons
    to be seated and masked when not actively drinking or eating. Mingling
    between parties is expressly prohibited.


    Indoor capacity at those establishments, as well as gyms and other
    "high-risk" activities, is limited to 50 percent. (It's not entirely
    clear to me whether this half-capacity cap supersedes the indoor
    gathering limits bars and restaurants are also supposed to comply with.) >>>
    "The dining rooms can only hold 50 [percent] capacity, where most
    restaurants and your financials are all structured around 100 [percent]
    capacity," said Hawaii Restaurant Association Executive Director Sheryl
    Matsuoka to Civil Beat. "You only have 50 [percent] of your income, but
    then you have to pay 100 [percent] of your bills."

    Restaurants were already required to operate at 75 percent capacity,
    Matsuoka said.

    Ige's executive order allows for "professional events"—which the
    Honolulu Star-Advertiser says includes weddings, meetings, banquets, and >>> conventions—have to follow state and county rules regarding their
    operation, but not the new state gathering limits. Organizers also have
    to consult with counties when hosting an event with more than 50 people. >>>
    A dashboard run by the state's Emergency Management Agency shows that 65 >>> percent of ICU beds in the state are occupied. The state has been
    averaging one COVID death a day for the past several months. Some 60
    percent of Hawaiians are fully vaccinated, and almost 70 percent have
    received at least one shot.

    Nevertheless, Civil Beat reported today that intensive care units (ICU)
    in a number of hospitals in the state are at or nearing capacity thanks
    to a surge in new COVID-19 patients. In Florida, a surge in delta
    variant cases has since been followed by a huge, and still rising, surge >>> in COVID deaths. It's plausible the situation in Hawaii will get worse soon.

    Thus far, most states and localities that have reimposed COVID
    restrictions have stuck to mandating indoor masking or requiring that
    patrons of restaurants and other establishments show proof of vaccination. >>>
    Hawaii's return to imposing limits on small gatherings—especially when
    statewide ICU capacity is still in good shape and COVID deaths are
    low—is a worrying sign that more states might soon start dredging up
    pandemic regulations we thought were behind us.

    It doesn't appear Hawaii state officials have put much more thought into >>> these restrictions since the last time they were imposed.

    It's pretty widely accepted that requiring people to wear masks when
    entering a restaurant but not while they're sitting there talking and
    eating for an hour is useless. Limits on outdoor activities are also
    considered to be ineffective.

    To Fight Communism, the U.S. Should Beam Internet Into Cuba
    Likewise, imposing different limits on the size of gatherings depending
    on where they're happening doesn't appear to make much sense. Is a
    40-person wedding really less dangerous than a restaurant patio filled
    with 30 people?

    Ige's order is supposed to end on October 13, unless the governor
    chooses to extend it.

    Hawaii & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    New Covid variants ‘would set us back a year’, experts warn UK government >>> Vaccine-beating variant is ‘realistic possibility’, say scientists, amid >>> calls for contingency plans to be revealed

    Ministers are being pressed to reveal what contingency plans are in
    place to deal with a future Covid variant that evades current vaccines,
    amid warnings from scientific advisers that such an outcome could set
    the battle against the pandemic back a year or more.

    Recent papers produced by the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for >>> Emergencies (Sage) have suggested that the arrival of a variant that
    evades vaccines is a “realistic possibility”. Sage backed continued work >>> on new vaccines that reduce infection and transmission more than current >>> jabs, the creation of more vaccine-production facilities in the UK and
    lab-based studies to predict evolution of variants.

    With the arrival of a new variant seen as one of the main dangers that
    could intensify the crisis once again, prominent scientific figures
    stressed the risks. Prof Graham Medley, a member of Sage and a leader of >>> the government’s Covid modelling group, said it was “clearly something
    that the planners and scientists should take very seriously as it would
    put us back a long way”.

    Advertisement
    “It is not that different to the planning that needs to be done between
    pandemics – a new variant that was able to overcome immunity
    significantly would be essentially a new virus,” he said. “The advantage >>> would be that we know we can generate vaccines against this virus – and
    relatively quickly. The disadvantage is that we would be back to the
    same situation we were in a year ago, depending on how much impact
    current immunity had against a new variant. Hopefully, evolution is
    slow, so that new variants arise that are only marginally evasive rather >>> than one big jump.” Dr Marc Baguelin, from Imperial College’s Covid-19
    response team and a member of the government’s SPI-M modelling group,
    said preventing the importation of variants of concern with “moderate to >>> high immune-escape properties would be critical, as these could lead to
    future waves orders of magnitude larger than the ones experienced so far”. >>>
    “It is unlikely that such a new virus evades entirely all immunity from
    past infection or vaccines,” he said. “Some immunity should remain at
    least for the most severe outcomes such as death or hospitalisation. We
    would most likely be able to update the current vaccines to include the
    emerging strain.

    “But doing so would take months and means that we might need to reimpose >>> restrictions if there were a significant public health risk. The amount
    of restrictions would be a political decision and would need to be
    proportionate with how much this virus would evade current vaccines.”

    It comes with a further loosening of restrictions in England on Monday
    when fully vaccinated people and under-18s will no longer be legally
    required to self-isolate if they come into close contact with someone
    with Covid. They will be advised, but not obliged, to take a PCR test
    instead. Daily Covid cases have been hovering around the 30,000 mark.
    The latest figures, from 13 August, showed that a further 32,700 had
    tested positive and another 100 deaths were reported.

    Meanwhile, all 16- and 17-year-olds in England will be offered a first
    dose of vaccine over the next week to give them some protection before
    schools return in September. Health secretary Sajid Javid urged older
    teenagers not to delay. “Get your jabs as soon as you can so we can
    continue to safely live with this virus and enjoy our freedoms by giving >>> yourself, your family and your community the protection they need,” he said.

    Boris Johnson’s former senior adviser Dominic Cummings has already
    called on the government to publish a “variant escape vaccine
    contingency plan” and suggested MPs should explore ways of forcing
    ministers to do so. One scientist, speaking on condition of anonymity,
    said they would like to see the publication of the national risk
    assessment relating to Covid-19 contingency plans.

    Munira Wilson, the Liberal Democrat health spokesperson, is backing the
    move. “It is critical that people have confidence in Boris Johnson’s
    Covid strategy and trust him not to repeat the same mistakes of the last >>> 18 months,” she said. “Through refusing to self-isolate, breaking their
    own rules and making mistakes that have cost lives, the government has
    lost public trust. Transparency is the only way to begin winning that
    trust back.”

    Stephen Reicher, professor of psychology at the University of St
    Andrews, said: “It very much makes sense to be prepared. Scotland is
    setting up its standing committee on pandemics. It will be interesting
    to see what emerges on a UK level.

    “In the longer-term we need a systematic inquiry into what went wrong
    (and right) so we are prepared and also so that we can institute
    systemic changes to protect us. The pandemic has been like a barium meal >>> which has exposed so many deficiencies in our society. We can no longer
    pretend we are not aware of them. This has been a deafening wake-up
    call. Let’s make sure we don’t press the snooze button.”

    Government sources said Public Health England and others were monitoring >>> the situation through rapid surveillance and genomic sequencing of the
    virus. A Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson said the
    vaccination programme had built a “wall of defence”.

    “We are committed to protecting the progress of the vaccine rollout and
    our world-leading genomics capabilities are at the forefront of global
    efforts to stay ahead of variants, with over half a million samples
    genome-sequenced so far,” they said.

    Official figures show the UK recorded 93 new Covid-related deaths and
    29,520 new cases yesterday.“Data from Public Health England shows two
    doses of Covid-19 vaccines are more than 90% effective against
    hospitalisation from the Delta variant, the dominant strain in the UK.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    100,000 more COVID deaths seen unless US changes its ways

    The U.S. is projected to see nearly 100,000 more COVID-19 deaths
    between
    now and Dec. 1, according to the nation’s most closely watched >forecasting model. But health experts say that toll could be cut in
    half
    if nearly everyone wore a mask in public spaces.

    In other words, what the coronavirus has in store this fall depends on >human behavior.

    “Behavior is really going to determine if, when and how sustainably the >current wave subsides,” said Lauren Ancel Meyers, director of the >University of Texas COVID-19 Modeling Consortium. “We cannot stop delta >in its tracks, but we can change our behavior overnight.”

    That means doubling down again on masks, limiting social gatherings, >staying home when sick and getting vaccinated. “Those things are within >our control,” Meyers said.

    The U.S. is in the grip of a fourth wave of infection this summer, >powered by the highly contagious delta variant, which has sent cases, >hospitalizations and deaths soaring again, swamped medical centers, >burned out nurses and erased months of progress against the virus.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Deaths are running at over 1,100 a day on average, turning the clock
    back to mid-March. One influential model, from the University of >Washington, projects an additional 98,000 Americans will die by the
    start of December, for an overall death toll of nearly 730,000.


    The projection says deaths will rise to nearly 1,400 a day by >mid-September, then decline slowly.

    But the model also says many of those deaths can be averted if
    Americans
    change their ways.

    “We can save 50,000 lives simply by wearing masks. That’s how important >behaviors are,” said Ali Mokdad, a professor of health metrics sciences >at the University of Washington in Seattle who is involved in the
    making
    of the projections.

    Already there are signs that Americans are taking the threat more
    seriously.

    Amid the alarm over the delta variant in the past several weeks, the >slump in demand for COVID-19 shots reversed course. The number of >vaccinations dispensed per day has climbed around 80% over the past
    month to an average of about 900,000.

    White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said Tuesday that in >Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, “more people got their >first shots in the past month than in the prior two months combined.”

    Also, millions of students are being required to wear masks. A growing >number of employers are demanding their workers get the vaccine after
    the federal government gave Pfizer’s shot full approval earlier this >week. And cities like New York and New Orleans are insisting people get >vaccinated if they want to eat at a restaurant.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Half of American workers are in favor of vaccine requirements at their >workplaces, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC
    Center for Public Affairs Research.

    Early signs suggest behavior changes may already be flattening the
    curve
    in a few places where the virus raged this summer.

    An Associated Press analysis shows the rate of new cases is slowing in >Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana and Arkansas, some of the same states >where first shots are on the rise. In Florida, pleas from hospitals and
    a furor over masks in schools may have nudged some to take more
    precautions.

    However, the troubling trends persist in Georgia, Kentucky, South >Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia and Wyoming, where new infections >continue to rise steadily.

    Mokdad said he is frustrated that Americans “aren’t doing what it takes >to control this virus.”

    “I don’t get it,” he said. “We have a fire and nobody wants to deploy a >firetruck.”

    One explanation: The good news in the spring — vaccinations rising,
    cases declining — gave people a glimpse of the way things used to be, >said Elizabeth Stuart of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public
    Health, and that made it tough for them to resume the precautions they >thought they left behind.


    “We don’t need to fully hunker down,” she said, “but we can make some >choices that reduce risk.”

    Even vaccinated people should stay vigilant, said Dr. Gaby Sauza,
    30, of
    Seattle, who was inoculated over the winter but tested positive for >COVID-19 along with other guests days after an Aug. 14 Vermont wedding, >even though the festivities were mostly outdoors and those attending
    had
    to submit photos of their vaccination cards.

    “In retrospect, absolutely, I do wish I had worn a mask,” she said.

    Sauza, a resident in pediatrics, will miss two weeks of hospital work
    and has wrestled with guilt over burdening her colleagues. She credits >the vaccine with keeping her infection manageable, though she suffered >several days of body aches, fevers, night sweats, fatigue, coughing and >chest pain.

    “If we behave, we can contain this virus. If we don’t behave, this
    virus
    is waiting for us,” Mokdad said. “It’s going to find the weak among us.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the

    Mooyah Art, Nick Depole
    Art Depole and his brother Nick own the Mooyah restaurant in New York's
    Times Square. Mooyah Burgers, Fries & Shakes
    The owner of Mooyah said business fell by up to 25% after NYC introduced >>> its vaccine mandate.
    He said that he doubted rising Delta cases had caused the drop.
    The vaccine mandate was "very polarizing" in comparison with past mask
    mandates, he added.

    The owner of a burger restaurant in downtown Manhattan said business
    plunged by up to 25% in a week – and he blamed it on New York City's
    vaccine mandate.

    Art Depole, who co-owns the Mooyah Burgers, Fries, and Shakes restaurant >>> in Times Square, told Insider that the mandate was deterring people from >>> visiting his establishment.

    This loss in business could cause his restaurant to raise prices, he said. >>>
    Read more: A top consulting firm just announced one of the strictest
    vaccine mandates yet: Get vaccinated or don't get paid


    Under rules introduced last week, people need to provide proof of at
    least one COVID-19 shot to eat at restaurants in New York City. Depole
    estimated that sales at his restaurant were between 20% and 25% down
    that week, with lunchtime and weekend traffic hit the hardest.

    Rising cases of the Delta variant could also be putting people off from
    eating out, Depole said. Sales have dropped at Mooyah restaurants in
    tourist-heavy areas because the Delta variant has deterred people from
    traveling, Natalie Anderson Liu, vice president of brand at Mooyah, told >>> Insider. And tourists usually make up just over half of all visitors at
    the Times Square location, Depole added.

    But he said that he didn't think worries about the Delta variant could
    have caused the sudden drop in sales because Delta cases were already
    high anyway.

    "The previous week in which the Delta variant was still spreading was
    far better in sales then last week was," Depole said.


    "I believe, from speaking to people, that it's more because of the
    mandate," he said.

    The vaccine mandate was "very polarizing" in comparison with past mask
    mandates, he added.

    Restaurants that voluntarily enforced their own vaccine mandates told
    Insider that some customers had left bad reviews and threatened to spit
    on and cough at staff over the policy.

    "I never had one incident with a customer who gave me a hard time when
    they were asked to wear a mask," Depole said.

    The restaurant industry is 'the easy target'
    Depole said he understood the reasoning behind the vaccine mandate, but
    that the restaurant industry was "the easy target" and being "unfairly
    picked on."

    "We're being singled out as someone who has to enforce this mandate
    while other large retailers aren't having to go through the same type of >>> requirements that we are to allow customers to enter," he said.

    An analysis published in Nature found that the majority of COVID-19
    infections early in the pandemic could be traced to "superspreader"
    locations, which included restaurants.

    "The places that are the riskiest are restaurants, gyms, cafes, and
    hotels," the study's co-author Jure Leskovec told Insider. "These are
    all places where people are relatively densely packed together for a
    long period of time."

    But Depole said his restaurant is safe. "We have had zero cases of COVID >>> linked to our restaurant," he said.

    Anderson Liu said that Mooyah introduced a COVID-19 checklist for all
    its restaurants at the start of the pandemic, which includes sanitizing
    restaurants every 15 minutes and screening staff for the coronavirus.

    "So I can tell you that almost with a 100% certainty that our restaurant >>> is safer than most of the retail outlets that are not affected by this," >>> Depole said.

    Record 400,000 waiting to see NHS specialists
    Published5 hours ago

    Covid-positive patient on the ICU ward on February 5, 2021
    IMAGE SOURCEGETTY IMAGES
    A record high of almost 400,000 people were waiting to see an NHS
    specialist for an outpatient appointment at the end of June, new figures >>> show.

    The Public Health Scotland statistics show that there was a growth in
    the NHS activity in the three months to the end of June.

    But the number of patients seen was still well down on the 2019 average. >>>
    Almost half of the people on the list had been waiting longer than 12
    weeks for a hospital appointment.

    One in 12 had been waiting for more than a year.

    The statistics show:


    286,707 patients were seen by specialists across NHS Scotland in the
    three months to the end of June
    This was a 10.8% increase on the previous quarter
    But the figure for June 2021 was 22% lower than the quarterly average
    during 2019, prior to the Covid pandemic
    At 30 June 2021, 396,771 were waiting to be seen.
    This is 48.4% (+129,489) higher than at 30 June 2020 when the list size
    was abnormally low, partly due to a significant drop in referrals
    The June 2021 figure is 28.5% (+87,884) higher than the average for 2019 >>> Of those waiting, 53.1% had been waiting 12 weeks or less - markedly
    down on the 73.4% average reported in 2019
    The number waiting more than a year has decreased to 8.8% (35,016)
    But the number waiting 33-51 weeks increased to 10.8% (15,285)

    Mick Moloney needs two knee replacements. He says he has been waiting

    but everything has "come to a standstill".

    "I did lots of gardening, I was a very keen dog walker, maybe 10 miles a >>> day, just generally always on the go.

    The people who seem to be avoiding the vaccine are either niggers,
    orthodox jews and so-called ultra-conservatives. Those are three
    groups of shit that the world can do without. I hope they all get the
    virus.

    There are multiple vaccines for COVID-19, each with a slightly
    different side-effect profile but none that are very protective
    against being infected by the virus. This does mean that none should
    hope that vaccination alone will stop the pandemic.

    The main reason for recommending vaccination is that the vaccines do
    all seem to help people survive the infection just as early injection
    of neutralizing monoclonal antibodies seems to help. This makes sense
    because neutralizing antibodies, whether from vaccination or
    injection, do stick to target viruses thereby keeping them from
    infecting other cells.

    Consult with a physician before doing these things.

    These things that are recommended to **all** Americans by the CDC,
    which is a U.S. federal government organization run by physicians with
    Dr. Rochelle Walensky, M.D. as director, are not done without a
    physician, or other healthcare provider (physician assistant, nurse
    practioner, nurse, or medical assistant) as the vaccinator or
    monoclonal antibody infuser **and** a signed informed consent from the
    patient.

    They all outearn you, outwit you, outsex you, and outclass you.

    Most of them, especially the children, are thankfully not eternally
    condemned.

    Also, the unvaccinated population is younger than the general
    population.

    The vaccines are not approved yet for those under 12 years of age.

    Though the survival benefit of the vaccines is not as large as for
    adults, the potential benefit for children, who are at higher risk of
    getting MISC post-COVID, still outweigh the risks associated with
    vaccination.

    The risk fior children from COVID-19 is vanishingly small.

    Risk of death, yes. Risk of MISC and/or cognitive impairment (i.e.
    loss of about 10 IQ points), no.


    In the interim, the only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby
    saving lives, in NYC & elsewhere is by rapidly (

    Government coercion of experts is alarming
    Trusted institutions have been put at risk by a dangerous preference for >>> action over deliberation
    FREDDIE SAYERS

    Placeholder image for youtube video: PYOyFDejqfk
    Government yet to decide on vaccinating healthy 12- to 15-year-olds,
    says Nadhim Zahawi

    Who would you choose to decide whether your children should receive a
    new vaccine: an independent committee of 16 clinicians and professors of >>> medicine with a 60-year record, or the soon-to-be-ex Education Secretary >>> Gavin Williamson?
    OK, that*s too easy. Politicians will inevitably overrule their own
    expert advice from time to time * indeed, many of those loudly
    applauding the refusal by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and
    Immunisation to recommend vaccinating healthy 12 to 15-year-olds would
    no doubt have wanted the Government to pay less attention to experts
    such as Professor Neil Ferguson earlier in the pandemic. In a democracy, >>> politicians make the final decisions, and that*s as it should be.
    But there*s something about the brazen way political pressure has been
    applied to the experts in this case that seems to cross a line, and
    reveals just how much our institutions have been diminished during this
    pandemic. Unlike a lockdown, which is clearly a broad societal decision, >>> evaluating whether children should receive a new vaccine really does
    seem like it should be protected from the whims of politicians.
    The JCVI has operated in various forms since 1963, when it evolved out
    of the advisory board for polio immunisation. Even in the 1960s * hardly >>> a high point of establishment transparency * it was considered sensible
    to devolve such questions to a board of independent experts. Not only
    should you get better decisions but, for something as sensitive and
    vulnerable to fear campaigns as vaccinations, it would reassure people a >>> proper process had been followed.
    Fast-forward to 2021 and the stakes are even higher: trust is low and
    conspiracy theories are more popular than ever. The very worst thing
    would be for the Government to go through the motions of due process
    while flagrantly engineering the decision they want via loopholes and
    Pravda-esque linguistic contortions. Unfortunately, this is exactly what >>> is happening.
    While the JCVI was still deliberating, it was briefed to newspapers that >>> the PM himself was determined to start vaccinating teenagers immediately >>> *amid mounting frustration with the scientific advisers*. Williamson
    openly told the BBC that *we want to get on with it*. The committee took >>> the unusual step of responding to this interference, telling journalists >>> they wouldn*t be *bounced by politicians*.
    Can there be any doubt that the inclusion of a get-out clause in this
    otherwise defiant letter, suggesting that the chief medical officers
    should make the final decision, was influenced by this political
    pressure? Within hours, the Health Secretary had written to the CMOs of
    the four nations asking them to *consider the matter from a broader
    perspective* and return with a determination *as soon as possible*. In
    other words: come back with a different decision, chaps, and make it snappy.
    As for this mysterious *broader perspective* that goes beyond health
    reasons, many parents may simply find it confusing. The idea seems to be >>> that vaccinating teenagers will reduce transmission in schools, which in >>> turn will reduce the need for groups to be sent home, and so justifies
    jabbing teens on education grounds. But, as the JCVI concluded, *any
    impact on transmission may be relatively small, given the lower
    effectiveness of the vaccine against infection with the delta variant*.
    No one in government has addressed this central objection.
    Vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi*s tour of the television studios on
    Sunday only added to the unsettling atmosphere. He unequivocally assured >>> one network that, whatever the decision on vaccines, parents would have
    final consent, then told another that 12 to 15-year-olds could override
    their parents if they were deemed *competent to do so*. Which
    12-year-olds are competent to overrule their parents, minister? If the
    goal were to maximise paranoia and uncertainty, it would be hard to
    design more contradictory postures than these.
    A dangerous new wisdom is forming, which views action as always better
    than inaction. It is reinforced by a popular narrative about the
    pandemic, that our errors were mostly in acting too slowly and
    deliberating too much. In this view, long-standing rules and
    institutions of liberal democracies have been demoted to fussy obstacles >>> that prevent us from replicating the successes of the
    command-and-control governments of Asia.
    But action can be every bit as damaging as inaction. Ask Matt Hancock,
    whose action-hero emptying of hospitals at the start of the pandemic
    certainly made things worse; or the Indians whose lives were upturned by >>> their government*s pointless and draconian early lockdown. To ram
    through vaccinations for teenagers on grounds other than health is
    itself a risk * imagine the impact of a single tragic adverse reaction
    to the jab in this scenario.
    Sometimes the wisest thing, as the JCVI suggests, really is to wait and see.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in

    A court in Vietnam has jailed a man for five years for breaking strict
    Covid quarantine rules and spreading the virus to others, state media
    reported.

    Le Van Tri, 28, was convicted of “spreading dangerous infectious
    diseases” at a one-day trial on Monday at the people’s court of the
    southern province of Ca Mau, the state-run Vietnam News Agency reported. >>>
    Vietnam had been one of the world’s coronavirus success stories, thanks
    to targeted mass testing, aggressive contact tracing, tight border
    restrictions and strict quarantine. But new clusters of infections since >>> late April have tarnished that record.

    “Tung travelled back to Ca Mau from Ho Chi Minh City … and breached the
    21-day quarantine regulations,” the news agency said. “Tung infected
    eight people, one of whom died due to the virus after one month of
    treatment,” it added.

    Reuters did not immediately reach the Ca Mau court for comment.

    Ca Mau, Vietnam’s southernmost province, has reported only 191 cases and >>> two deaths since the pandemic began, much fewer than the nearly 260,000
    cases and 10,685 deaths in the country’s coronavirus hotspot, Ho Chi
    Minh City.

    Vietnam is battling a worsening Covid outbreak that has infected more
    than 536,000 people and killed 13,385, the vast majority in the past few >>> months.

    The country has sentenced two other people to 18-month and two-year

    North country health care workers make voices heard on state vaccine >mandate, want public to know they aren't "anti-vaxxers"
    Rachel Burt, Watertown Daily Times, N.Y.
    Sun, September 19, 2021, 6:08 AM·10 min read
    Sep. 19—WATERTOWN — With the Sept. 27 deadline looming for the New York >mandate that all health care workers, including staff at hospitals and >long-term care facilities, be required to get vaccinated against >COVID-19, some health care workers face a difficult decision.

    Should they decide not to receive at least the first dose of one of the >three available coronavirus vaccines before the state's deadline,
    health
    care workers risk the loss of their livelihoods and the careers they've >worked to build.

    Giving voice to their concerns and displeasure with the mandate, >tri-county health care workers have been protesting this week and
    signing on to Change.org petitions.

    - ADVERTISEMENT -

    On Wednesday, protesters gathered in Potsdam, and a Watertown protest >organized by Samaritan Health workers, like the one that occurred
    outside of the hospital last week, took place on Public Square Saturday >afternoon, coinciding with protests in other cities, including
    Syracuse.

    Jenelle S. Stine, a registered nurse with Samaritan, has retained the >position for about five years and said that although nursing means the >world to her, she is willing to walk away from it until there is more >concrete data about the safety and efficacy of the coronavirus vaccines >she and her colleagues have been mandated to receive.

    "Until the vaccines are studied in a more complex, traditional setting >that scientists and the FDA normally use, I think the 'warp speed' >studies should be focused on how to use safe, traditional
    medications to
    treat early diagnosed illness of COVID to build natural immunity to >prevent hospitalizations and deaths," she said.

    Adding that there is nothing wrong with how staff have been managing
    with screens and personal protective equipment, or PPE, so far through >the pandemic, if the mandate goes through and health care systems lose >nurses and other staff, she predicts it will have a devastating impact
    on the patients that will need health care.

    "[...]Whether it's from the uptick of COVID or admissions for patients >with chronic disease processes, this will be a lose situation for all," >Mrs. Stine said. "I commend those who got vaccinated and contributed to >this research; I personally have personal health issues that made me
    opt
    to not take a risk with a new vaccine."

    From her perspective, the risks of the vaccines aren't worth the
    benefits. Everyone, she said, is ultimately accountable for preventing >the transmission of the virus and being diligent with preventative
    measures.

    On Aug. 16, former Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that all health care >workers in New York state would be required to be vaccinated against >COVID-19. The requirement applied to staff at all hospitals and
    long-term care facilities like nursing homes and congregate care
    settings.

    Religious and medical exemptions were both initially included in the >order, but religious exemptions were removed through emergency >regulations approved by the state's Public Health and Health Planning >Council on Aug. 26.

    With deadline to receive at least one dose by Sept. 27 comes the >understanding that if health care workers do not comply and do not have
    a recognized medical exemption, they will be relieved of their
    positions.

    A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked the state from forcing >health care workers to be vaccinated after a group of 17 health care >workers sued, saying their constitutional rights were violated due to
    the fact that the mandate had disallowed religious exemptions.

    "It's nice to know that there are other people that are against this, >that they're willing to fight," Mrs. Stine said. "They don't think it's >right either."

    The judge gave the state until Wednesday to respond to the lawsuit in >U.S. District Court in Utica. If the state opposes the request for a >preliminary court order blocking the mandate, which it likely will, an >oral hearing will be held Sept. 28.

    According to a handout from the Los Angeles County Department of Public >Health, in various stages of vaccine development and manufacturing,
    some
    of the COVID-19 vaccines used cells originally isolated from fetal >tissue, some of which were originally derived from an aborted fetus.

    The fetal cell lines being used to produce some of the potential
    COVID-19 vaccines are from two sources: a kidney cell line that was >isolated from a fetus in 1973, and a retinal cell line that was
    isolated
    from an aborted fetus in 1985.

    Abortions from which fetal cells were obtained were elective and were
    not done for the purpose of vaccine development, and any vaccine that >relies on these historic cell lines will not require nor solicit new >abortions, according to the handout.

    Some bioethics groups and religious institutions, including the
    Vatican,
    generally oppose the use of aborted fetal cells in the development or >manufacturing of vaccines but have said that, given the nature of the >pandemic, people may ethically receive these vaccines when there are no >alternatives.

    Michelle L. Laverghetta, who has been in her current position for over >six years as a housekeeper with Samaritan Summit Village and loves what >she does, said those she has spoken with all say the same thing:
    they're
    being punished for not obeying something they don't believe in and will >eventually be fired if they refuse the shots.

    Health care facilities may take large hits as they lose staff to the >mandate, which could very well negatively impact patient care.

    "People have rights and when they are threatened, they fight back," Ms. >Laverghetta said. "It's in the Constitution — it's called freedom."

    A week from Monday, health care staffing could drastically change
    due to
    the mandate. Though some health care workers do not agree with the >mandate, the hope in the north country is there will not be a major >impact on health systems or services.

    According to Leslie M. DiStefano, director of communication and public >relations for Samaritan, the health care system doesn't have a
    number on
    formal resignations at this time, but is estimating between 50 to 100 >team members will choose to resign rather than get vaccinated.

    The entire health system is at about 80% vaccination, according to Ms. >DiStefano.

    "Even losing one caregiver, one team member, is detrimental to what we >do," she said. "There's no way that we could operate in the same way >knowing that there already is a national and a local workforce
    shortage.
    And now you have more people leaving the organization."

    While she acknowledged that this could mean things like longer wait >times, appointments being scheduled further out, and incoming calls not >answered as quickly, Ms. DiStefano said at this point, there's no >intention to reduce or close any Samaritan services. She added that >patient volumes have returned to pre-pandemic levels.

    As previously reported by the Times this week, three of the five >departments at the Lewis County Health System that were in danger of >being "paused" due to staff loss from resistance to the COVID-19
    vaccine, like the maternity department, have been moved off the
    watch list.

    The health system-wide vaccination rate was 83% as of Thursday
    afternoon, according to Chief Executive Officer Gerald R. Cayer.The
    total number of resignations so far is 43, with about 70% being
    clinical
    staff.

    Mr. Cayer confirmed that he and his team have been working
    internally to
    re-position staff so services have adequate coverage while "also >aggressively working with outside agencies to help fill positions that >will be vacant on the 28th."

    Jake Hollis, a respiratory therapist with the Lewis County Health
    System, said he has put 15 years into health care and has never felt as >low as he does right now due to the impending mandate and the
    approaching loss of his beloved job over a vaccine he does not wish to >receive.

    "I love what I do. It's not a job, it's a passion, and this state is >about to take that away from me because I don't feel comfortable with a >medication that we don't know the long-term effects of," he said. "It's >my body, my choice, except for this."

    Mr. Hollis stressed that he and his fellow health care workers who are >unhappy with the vaccine mandate, are not "anti-vax." He said he has
    all
    of the vaccines previously required of him and said he would receive
    one
    of the COVID-19 vaccines 10 years down the line once it is known if
    there are any long-term effects.

    "It's just the fact that this one is so new and as health care
    providers
    we are supposed to question it," he said. "We have seen medications
    come
    on the market and be taken off a month and years later because of
    adverse or long-term effects."

    He said he feels brokenhearted right know, knowing that something he >loves so much could soon be taken from him.

    Ben E. Hull, who has served as the director of the Center for Cancer
    Care at Canton-Potsdam Hospital for the last four years, turned in his >letter of resignation earlier this month in direct response to the
    state
    Department of Health's removal of religious exemptions to the health
    care worker mandate.

    He said the state's refusal to acknowledge religious exemptions was "a >slap in the face to those of faith who serve in health care."

    "The line for me was when it became a religious liberty issue," Mr.
    Hull
    said. "Other people who are working in health care and in the community >may not totally agree with where that line is or ought to be. I think >what's important is that people do what they believe is right."

    Mr. Hull acknowledged that his decision to resign over this policy may >seem extreme in light of the fact that he himself is fully vaccinated.
    He wrote in a letter sent out to various outlets that it is no more >extreme than forcing health care facilities to terminate employees for >adhering to their sincerely held religious convictions.

    "The very same people who have selflessly served our community on the >front lines of a pandemic response for 18 months will be
    unceremoniously
    kicked to the curb," Mr. Hull wrote. "If the state chooses to
    persist in
    this egregious violation of rights of conscience, our local health care >system will be severely weakened by the end of September."

    His last day in his role at CPH will be Friday, right before the
    mandate
    is set to take effect the following Monday.

    As for the temporary halt and legal action against the vaccination >mandate, Mr. Hull said it is heartening, but it certainly is not a done >deal.

    "I think it's so important for people to take a stand in this
    arena," he
    said. "In the midst of an already existing staffing crisis that health >care facilities are experiencing across the country and in the state, I >think what a lot of people are being made aware of as this policy is >making the rounds in the news is: Any essential worker working in
    health
    care being forced out of their job for these reasons is too many."

    If, for example, he said, someone's family member calls 911 with chest >pain in a few weeks and is told an ambulance is not coming, it will be >too late to speak up about the mandate.Emergency medical service
    managers , he added, are at a loss for how they are expected to respond >to emergencies without their staff and volunteers.

    "These heroes of our community will be barred from showing up to save
    our loved-ones' lives because they're unvaccinated," he said. "Is that >worth it? I don't think it is."

    College Campuses Have the Craziest COVID-19 Restrictions of All
    Here's why that should terrify the rest of us, too.
    ROBBY SOAVE | 9.21.2021 11:04 AM

    dreamstime_xxl_184045450
    (Syda Productions | Dreamstime.com)
    Last week, Brown University implemented strict new COVID-19 mitigation >protocols following 82 confirmed positive (including asymptomatic)
    cases
    among students.

    Until the number of cases decreases, students are forbidden to
    gather in
    groups of more than five, whether indoors or outdoors. They are no
    longer permitted to eat in the cafeteria, and must instead pick up
    their
    meals and eat elsewhere, keeping a mask on at all other times. But they >can't go out to eat at bars or restaurants; this is strictly
    prohibited.
    The university doesn't want students to mingle with anyone from outside >the campus, but administrators would also prefer if students
    declined to
    make new friends among their peers.


    "Students are expected to consistently engage with the same small
    social
    group, rather than attending or 'hopping' among multiple small-group >gatherings over the course of a day or short period of time," according >to the university.

    Students will also be tested every four days.

    It should be noted that the overwhelming majority of Brown University >teachers, staff, and students are vaccinated. Vaccination is a >requirement. Since vaccines offer excellent protection against severe >disease and death, COVID-19 outbreaks at Brown are unlikely to
    seriously
    harm anyone.

    "On a campus where the vast majority of students and faculty are fully >vaccinated, I think the university should instead return to something >near-normal," one student, Adam Shepardson, told Campus Reform.

    This is a reasonable expectation. Campus environments, where the
    populace skews younger and the vaccination rate is 90-plus percent, are >ideal places to ease into the post-pandemic reality: They are extremely >safe from the threats of mass death and crowded hospitals. University >authorities would be well-advised to treat the diminishing threat of >COVID-19 as an opportunity to lift restrictions, ease up on masking,
    and
    let students enjoy the social and educational experiences they're
    paying
    for.

    However, the professors, being advanced in age, are still at
    significant risk of suffering breakthrough COVID-19 infections that
    could either disable them or worse still kill them despite their being fully vaccinated.

    So they have no confidence in the vaccine, then.

    Being professors, they are knowledgeable about statistics and what it
    means for vaccines to not be 100% protective **and** for there to be
    waning immunity that is more pronounced when advanced in age.

    Only the full armor (Ephesians 6:11) of GOD is 100% protective against everything including COVID-19 even when advanced in age.

    Moreover, they likely have both the access and the insight into the
    meaning of data concerning COVID-19 outcomes as a function of
    vaccination status.

    For example: https://kingcounty.gov/depts/health/covid-19/data/vaccination-outcomes.aspx
    Instead, something close to the opposite is happening: Far from
    returning to normal at an accelerated rate, many colleges are >implementing some of the most authoritarian mitigation efforts out of >anywhere in the country. Harvard has encouraged students to keep "close >contacts to a minimum" and wear masks at all times; Yale instructed >students to wear masks in their own dorm rooms if any friends are >visiting; the University of Southern California prohibited all indoor >eating and drinking and asserted that if students need to hydrate
    during
    class they should first leave the building.

    "The exception to this rule is limited to instructors, who may briefly >hydrate while teaching but must re-mask immediately," said the dean of >USC's law school in an announcement.

    That is because the professors, being advanced in age, need to
    rehydrate more frequently especially with their needing to do more
    speaking than students during a class. Moreover, a professor leaving a class to rehydrate is much more disruptive of the entire class than a student leaving to rehydrate.

    In an effort to completely disrupt illicit socializing, Columbia >reprogrammed key cards so that they would only grant access to
    students'
    individual residence halls. The campus is currently in the midst of a >"temporary" two-week ban on hanging out with other people.

    Guidance from campus administrators is often authoritarian in tone. >Boston University's recent missives to students emphasize the need for >obedience to random testing requirements and warn that serious
    punishment will occur "should you fail to become compliant."

    Journalist Michael Tracey has been tracking COVID-19 restrictions on >campuses and notes that many administrators are creating vast >surveillance networks to keep students in line. "University of Michigan >requires all students/staff and visitors to acquire the 'ResponsiBLUE' >app which reveals their vaccination status and 'health screening' >results," he writes. "This must be presented on command when entering >facilities. There's every indication it will be made permanent."

    One might have expected students to rebel against these measures: Many >campuses contain a loud and active contingent of injustice-minded >protesters. But if young people at Columbia, Harvard, and elsewhere are >fed up with mandatory masking and social distancing, they certainly >aren't saying so. In fact, some students seem to be eagerly reporting >each other for COVID-19 noncompliance. And at campuses where the >mitigation efforts are less militant, students have actually protested >the lack of enforcement. University of Iowa students recently held a >"die-in" to demand that the administration pause "all non-essential in >person events" and implement a mask mandate.

    This is madness. Few people are safer from COVID-19 than vaccinated 18- >to 22-year-olds, yet campus administrators (and sometimes students) are >acting like any amount of non-masking or basic socializing is likely to >get people killed.

    I've written quite a bit about cultural trends in higher education, and >how the illiberal values of campus activists have come to dominate all >professional spaces where elite opinion holds sway. Progressive young >people who view basic free speech principles with antipathy or even >disdain are in the process of fundamentally changing the workplace. "We >should look to the campus activist culture of the present to discover >what our broader culture might resemble a few years from now," I wrote
    in a recent article for the Deseret News.

    If recent history is any guide, we should be terrified that the current >crop of college students might leave campus possessed of the notion
    that
    the most insane version of pandemic oppression is perfectly normal and >desirable.

    New Zealand extends Auckland lockdown in battle on Delta variant

    WELLINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - New Zealand's biggest city of Auckland
    will retain its lockdown for two more weeks in the battle on the Delta
    variant of coronavirus, as the country pushes to step up vaccinations,
    Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern said on Monday.

    Once the poster child for stamping out COVID-19, New Zealand is now
    fighting a Delta outbreak that has spread across Auckland and
    neighbouring regions despite tough lockdown and border closures.

    Ardern said there would be no changes to social curbs, the toughest in
    the OECD grouping of 34 leading economies, that have run for 62 days in
    Auckland.

    "Any interim easing of restrictions ... will not work towards our plan
    of minimising cases while we increase vaccinations," Ardern told a news
    conference.

    "But the biggest thing that will make a difference right now, alongside
    vaccines, is that everyone continue to comply with restrictions."

    The lockdown in the city of 1.7 million began in mid-August, in the
    effort to halt the outbreak.

    Some curbs were eased to let people leave home and meet loved ones
    outdoors in groups limited to 10, as well as permitting visits to
    beaches and parks.

    But schools, businesses and offices remain shut, and gatherings indoors
    are not allowed.

    New Zealand's tally of infections in the current outbreak rose to 2,005
    with Monday's 60 new community cases, consisting of 57 in Auckland and
    three in the Waikato region.

    The Pacific nation was among just a handful of countries to reach zero
    COVID-19 cases last year, staying largely virus-free until the Delta
    outbreak in August frustrated efforts to stamp out transmission.

    Amid mounting political pressure to reopen the country and its economy,
    Ardern switched from her tough elimination strategy to a model of
    learning to live with the virus, much like rest of the world.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    N.Z. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    CDC Emails: Our Definition of Vaccine is "Problematic"
    CDC: Problematic Vaccine? No, Problematic Definition of Vaccine.

    Pic unrelated :)
    The CDC caused an uproar in early September 2021, after it changed its
    definitions of “vaccination” and “vaccine.” For years, the CDC had set
    definitions for vaccination/vaccine that discussed immunity. This all
    changed on September 1, 2021.

    The prior CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination (August 26, 2021):

    Vaccine: A product that stimulates a person’s immune system to produce
    immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. >>> Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can
    also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose.

    Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce
    immunity to a specific disease.

    The CDC Definitions of Vaccine and Vaccination since September 1, 2021:

    Vaccine: A preparation that is used to stimulate the body’s immune
    response against diseases. Vaccines are usually administered through
    needle injections, but some can be administered by mouth or sprayed into >>> the nose.

    Vaccination: The act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce
    protection from a specific disease.

    People noticed. Representative Thomas Massie was among the first to
    discuss the change, noting the definition went from “immunity” to
    “protection”.

    To many observers, it appeared the CDC changed the definitions because
    of the waning effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines. For example, the
    effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine falls over time, with an Israeli
    study reported in August 2021 as showing the vaccine being “only 16%
    effective against symptomatic infection for those individuals who had
    two doses of the shot back in January.” The CDC recognizes the waning
    effectiveness, thus explaining their promotion of booster shots.

    Of course, the usual suspects defended the CDC. The Washington Post, for >>> example, cast doubt that the CDC changed the definition because of
    issues with the COVID-19 vaccines. The CDC tried to downplay the change, >>> stating “slight changes in wording over time … haven’t impacted the
    overall definition.”

    Internal CDC E-Mails

    CDC emails we obtained via the Freedom of Information Act reveal CDC
    worries with how the performance of the COVID-19 vaccines didn’t match
    the CDC’s own definition of “vaccine”/“vaccination”. The CDC’s Ministry
    of Truth went hard at work in the face of legitimate public questions on >>> this issue.

    In one August 2021 e-mail, a CDC employee cited to complaints that
    “Right-wing covid-19 deniers are using your ‘vaccine’ definition to
    argue that mRNA vaccines are not vaccines…”


    After taking some suggestions, the CDC’s Lead Health Communication
    Specialist went up the food chain to propose changes to the definitions: >>> “I need to update this page Immunization Basics | CDC since these
    definitions are outdated and being used by some to say COVID-19 vaccines >>> are not vaccines per CDC’s own definition.”


    Getting no response, there was a follow-up e-mail a week later: “The
    definition of vaccine we have posted is problematic and people are using >>> it to claim the COVID-19 vaccine is not a vaccine based on our own
    definition.”


    The change of the “vaccination” definition was eventually approved on
    August 31. The next day, on September 1, they approved the change to the >>> “vaccine” definition from discussing immunity to protection (seen below). >>>

    There you have it. Affirmative action for the multinational
    corporations. Why have them improve their vaccines when you can just
    change the definition of vaccine to fit their ineffective vaccines?

    Congrats to all the skeptics out there – you raised enough hell that the >>> the CDC went and tried to change reality.

    L.A. Movie Theaters, Restaurants Will Require Proof of COVID-19
    Vaccination Starting Monday

    On Monday, the city of Los Angeles will introduce SafePassLA, a vaccine
    verification program that will require proof of full COVID-19
    vaccination for all patrons and employees to enter movie theaters,
    indoor restaurants and other businesses.

    Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and photo ID became requirements on
    Thursday for indoor entry to bars, breweries, wineries, distilleries,
    nightclubs and lounges across L.A. county, which includes cities like
    Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Burbank. Along with restaurants and
    theaters, the L.A. city order that goes into effect Monday will include
    coffee shops, gyms, spas, nail salons, barbershops, shopping malls and
    entertainment and recreation venues. The requirements also extend to
    official city facilities, such as city hall, senior centers, recreation
    centers and service centers.

    The Fifth Circuit Says The Biden Administration Abused Its Power And The >>> Constitution. Better Impeach Him, Then!
    NOVEMBER 14, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL
    Vaccine mandate

    Just kidding! Presidents often try to stretch the already rubber
    boundaries of what the Constitution and even the law requires, only to
    get slapped down by the courts. This kind of thing was only grounds for
    impeachment (according to the Trump Deranged, the mainstream media
    pundits and Democrats) when Donald Trump did it.

    But President Trump never tried anything as egregiously dictatorial as
    the vaccine mandate.

    Actually, if it were true that vaccine mandates were dictatorial, Mr.
    Jack Marshal would have named dictators like Stalin, Hitler, etc
    issuing such mandates. He can't because the realm of public health is
    about compassion for society's vulnerable and dictators lack such
    compassion for others b/c they're attracted to only having power for
    themselves and see compassion for others as only weakness.

    Bottom line:
    Mr. Jack Marshal is an unethical liar. May GOD continue to kill folks
    like anti-vaxxer anti-masker (i.e. disease spreading evil-doer) Mr.
    Marshall with COVID-19 in order to continue to convince others to not
    be like them, in the name (John 16:23) of LORD Jesus Christ of
    Nazareth. Amen.

    "It will continue to be done as you've asked." -- Holy Spirit
    (referring to John 16:23)

    MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES DROPPING PROOF OF VACCINATION, NEGATIVE TESTS FOR HOME >>> GAMES
    by MEG TURNER
    2 days ago
    Videos by OutKick
    The Memphis Grizzlies’ next home game will come with a slightly
    different experience for fans.

    FedEx Forum announced that beginning Nov. 24, fans will no longer be
    asked to provide either a negative COVID-19 test or show proof of
    vaccination to enter the arena.

    FedEx Forum, home to both the NBA team and the NCAA basketball’s Memphis >>> Tigers, will also modify the COVID-19 Entry Policy for the Tigers, as well. >>>
    The Grizzlies will re-evaluate the policy on or before January 7, 2022,
    with updates provided accordingly, the statement reads.


    The Mask Policy was updated a day earlier to be consistent with CDC
    guidelines, per the news release.

    While masks remain highly encouraged for all fans in attendance, they
    are no longer required for children or adults. Working staff for all
    events at FedExForum, including Grizzlies games, will continue wearing
    masks for the foreseeable future.

    There is a health screening for fans seated within 15 feet of the court. >>>
    “All fans 12 and older attending any Grizzlies or Tigers games at
    FedExForum have the option to present either proof of a negative
    COVID-19 test taken 72-hours prior to the scheduled event or proof of at >>> least one dose of the vaccination,” the release reads.


    While the requirements vary for the NCAA and NBA games, Grizzlies fans
    seated within 15 feet of the court must follow NBA Health & Safety
    requirements — fans 2 or older must either provide proof of negative
    COVID-19 test 48-hours prior to the scheduled game or proof of
    vaccination for those 12 and over.

    Covid: Can UK avoid a Europe-style return to lockdown?

    Covid infection rates have started rising sharply in parts of Western >Europe, prompting the introduction of fresh restrictions and lockdowns.

    It has triggered fears the UK could follow suit. But there are
    plenty of
    reasons to believe Britain will escape the worst of what is being seen
    on the continent. In fact, the UK may well be in the strongest position >of all to weather Covid this winter.

    To understand why that could be the case, you need to look at the
    reasons why cases have started to take off in Western Europe.

    Unlike the UK - and England in particular - many parts of Europe kept >major restrictions in place for much longer.

    Whereas England fully unlocked in mid-July, parts of Europe did not do >this until the autumn, and in many places kept tougher restrictions in >place even as they did.

    Part of this was to do with timing. The UK was hit by the more
    infectious Alpha variant and then Delta sooner, meaning it was in a >position to push ahead with unlocking before others.


    Chart showing infection rates
    Presentational white space
    Chart showing Covid deaths
    Presentational white space
    But it was also a conscious choice backed by the government's top >scientists, Prof Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance.

    The logic - along with the benefit of ending restrictions that
    themselves cause harm to health - was that it was better to have the >rebound in infection, the so-called exit wave, in the summer.

    It was felt the increase in the spread of the virus would be mitigated
    by the better weather, meaning more time spent outdoors, and would
    avoid
    the winter crunch when pressure on the health system increases across
    the board.

    UK has high levels of immunity
    The UK has, in effect, already had the wave the rest of Europe is
    seeing
    and has managed to avoid being swamped by it.

    That is mainly because of the amount of immunity built up.

    A combination of good vaccine rollout, particularly among the older
    more
    vulnerable groups who are the ones most at risk of serious illness, and >natural immunity from infection means there is likely to be a much >smaller pool of vulnerable people for the virus to infect.

    Researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have >been trying to quantify this by looking at what would happen if
    everyone
    was suddenly exposed to the virus in one go.

    They modelled this for England - although there is nothing to suggest >Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland would be any different - and 18 >other European nations.

    If this hypothetical situation happened, England would have by far the >fewest people ending up in hospital - 62 per 100,000 people -
    because of
    immunity built up by vaccination and infection. That compares with more >than 300 in Germany, largely because of their lower levels of infection >to date, and more than 800 in Romania, which has struggled to convince >its public to come forward for vaccination.

    Chart showing modelling of hospital cases
    Presentational white space
    This was the picture at the end of October. If the same analysis was
    done at the end of November it is likely the situation would be even
    more favourable for England, says lead researcher Dr Lloyd Chapman.

    That's because the UK is ploughing ahead faster than other nations with >boosters. Again part of this is related to timing. As the UK was
    quicker
    off the mark with Covid vaccinations initially, there are greater
    numbers of people becoming eligible for a booster.

    "We are giving those boosters to the very people who are most at
    risk at
    perhaps the best time - they will have the best protection in winter."

    Chart showing booster uptake
    Presentational white space
    But Dr Chapman also points out this has come at a price - the high
    rates
    of infection have resulted in a greater amount of serious illness and >death in recent months than many of our Western European neighbours.

    And he adds the research should not be seen as a guarantee we will
    escape the winter without seeing a surge in cases. "We may be in the >strongest position - but we could still see cases double and that would >cause problems."

    'Public playing key role in UK'
    But is that likely? What is perhaps most remarkable about the UK is
    just
    how stable infection levels have been. Ever since the sharp rise
    seen in
    early summer peaked in mid-July, infection rates have bobbled along, >small rises being followed by similar drops.

    There is no other part of Europe that has seen Covid infections held so >stable with very few restrictions in place.

    Instead, when other nations have seen cases surge restrictions have >tended to be reimposed. This is happening now in parts of Western
    Europe
    and follows on from what happened in Eastern Europe early in the
    autumn.

    Romania, for example, saw a sharp rise in cases in September and
    October
    and reacted by introducing a night curfew, sending children home from >school and introducing health passes for access to public venues.

    It is telling that those nations that have had the most problems as >winter arrives are the ones identified by the London School of Hygiene >and Tropical Medicine as having the greatest pool of vulnerable people. >How far this pattern spreads across Europe remains to be seen.

    Doctor administering injection to young woman
    IMAGE SOURCE,GETTY IMAGES
    But immunity alone does not explain why the UK, and in particular >England, has seen such stable rates, says Prof Graham Medley, who
    chairs
    the government's infectious disease modelling group.

    Prof Medley, speaking in a personal capacity, believes it is more
    complex than that. "I think we are seeing the public playing an
    important role."

    He says a combination of limiting mixing and frequent use of rapid
    tests, which are more easy to access here than in many other countries, >seems to be doing just enough to keep the virus in check.

    "The government has passed the risk management to the public - and
    we've
    been able to do that better than other countries."

    The big question is whether that will last throughout winter - Scotland >and Northern Ireland are already talking about the possibility of >tightening of restrictions. Prof Medley says it is "delicately"
    balanced, but with every passing week the chances are getting better.

    An anorexic woman was found dead at home after doctors failed to monitor >>> her condition during lockdown, an inquest heard.

    Louise Cooper, 44, died from severe malnutrition after suffering from an >>> eating disorder 'for many years' and had an 'extremely low' body mass
    index (BMI), the hearing was told.

    A friend forced entry to her home while trying to deliver some shopping
    after failing to make contact and discovered she had died on her bed.


    The inquest held last month found that an administrative error meant
    Louise did not receive the monitoring she was expected to receive during >>> the 2020 lockdown which had also impacted her treatment.

    The court found that had she received that monitoring as envisaged,
    there was a good chance she would not have died when she did.

    A Prevention of Future Deaths report which has now been filed by Senior
    Coroner Alan Wilson, noted that before her death, Louise told friends
    'all of the mechanisms that she had for coping with her condition' were
    removed during lockdown.

    The report has been sent to the Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS
    Foundation Trust, the Blackpool Clinical Commission Group and the Fylde
    & Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group who must respond with actions taken. >>>
    The coroner heard Louise, described as 'thoughtful, caring and
    intelligent', had been admitted to hospital on a number of occasions as
    part of her treatment for anorexia.

    Pictured: Louise Cooper, 44, was found dead at home after doctors failed >>> to monitor her anorexia during lockdown, a coroner heard as he filed a
    prevention of future deaths report

    She was last discharged in July 2019 after which time she received care >>>from an eating disorder service until January 2020.

    The coroner stated: 'Louise knew that the clinical psychologist with
    whom she had worked over a number of years was due to go on maternity leave.

    'She did not wish to work with any other members of the Eating Disorder
    Service team.'

    She was then discharged from the eating disorder service on the
    understanding she would be monitored by her GP.

    At the time, her body mass index (BMI) was at 12.5. Anything below 15 is >>> considered extreme anorexia and adults are considered underweight if
    they are below 18.5.

    Charity: 'This tragic case highlights need for urgent support'
    Around 1.25 million people in the UK suffer from an eating disorder,
    according to Beat, the national charity which offers a support helpline
    and aims to raise awareness and campaign for better services.

    Tom Quinn, Director of External Affairs at Beat, said: 'The pandemic has >>> had a devastating impact on people with eating disorders with increased
    isolation leading to more people developing eating disorders; and for
    many who were already struggling Covid-19 and the resulting lockdown has >>> led to their illness becoming even more severe.

    'This tragic case highlights the urgent need to ensure there is enough
    support in the community for people with eating disorders, and that GP
    surgeries are effective in carrying out medical monitoring of
    individuals at risk.'

    If you are worried about yourself or a loved one, the Beat helpline 0808 >>> 801 0677 is open 365 days a year.


    While the GP surgery in Blackpool was notified, an administrative issue
    meant 'the need for Louise to be monitored was not appreciated', the
    coroner found.

    The report added: 'During the weeks preceding Louise's death, her health >>> went into further decline. This was in part contributed to by the
    coronavirus pandemic in March 2020 which left her more isolated.

    'Having last exchanged text messages with Louise on May 15, 2020, a
    friend attended her home address at approximately 12.30pm on May 16,
    2020 to deliver some shopping as previously arranged.

    'Unable to obtain a reply he forced entry and he found Louise to be
    deceased on her bed in the rear bedroom.'

    Recording a narrative conclusion at an inquest on December 17, the
    coroner said: 'Louise Cooper's condition had not been monitored by
    medical professionals by the time she died on May 16, 2020 as a result
    of complications of her previously diagnosed anorexia nervosa.'

    In his subsequent report, Mr Wilson noted a number of concerns regarding >>> the care Louise received.

    He said: 'It is reported that she stated to friends that the nationwide
    lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic had removed all of the mechanisms
    that she had for coping with her condition.

    'A trust review would later find that as Louise was self-isolating due
    to Covid, this may have impacted upon her mental and physical wellbeing
    due to reduced social contacts.

    'Louise did not receive the monitoring she was expected to receive
    during 2020.

    'The court found that had she received that monitoring as envisaged,
    there was a good chance she would not have died when she did, but was
    unable to say that she would have survived.'

    The report noted that as part of her care Louise received one-to-one
    support whereby a health professional would visit her once a week and
    sit with her while she ate a meal.

    Louise's father said during the hearing that had this support continued
    then the outcome might have been different.

    The coroner added: 'There will be many patients such as Louise who
    appear to make minimal if any improvement in a hospital setting but who
    may benefit - according to the clinicians treating them - from sustained >>> supported eating.

    'If that option is not available, these patients may be left with no
    realistic chance of any meaningful improvement.'

    Both the Department of Health and Social Care and Gillian Keegan MP have >>> also been sent a copy of the report.

    A spokesperson for the Department for Health and Social Care said the
    department would respond to the report in due course.

    The coroner requires a response, including details of proposed changes
    or improvements within 56 days.

    A spokesperson for Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust
    said: 'We would like to offer our condolences to Louise Cooper's family
    at this difficult time.

    'We have received a copy of the Regulation 28 report and will work to
    implement any recommendations that have been outlined.'

    Bosses at Impact Computing, where Louise worked in the finance and admin >>> department, paid tribute to her following her death back in May 2020.

    'Today our company mourns the loss of Louise Cooper, who sadly passed
    away this Saturday the 16th of May 2020,' the company posted on Facebook. >>>
    'Louise worked in our finance and admin department and was instrumental
    in the company's growth during the long period that she worked with us.

    'Louise was a very thoughtful, caring, intelligent and determined
    individual who always put others before herself.

    'She fought hard to address the injustices she saw in this world in an
    effort to help as many people as she could throughout her life. She will >>> be sorely missed by us all.'

    Two Years To Slow the Spread
    Government can't stop moving the COVID-19 goal posts.
    MATT WELCH | FROM THE MARCH 2022 ISSUE

    (Photo: Luis Alvarez/Getty)
    On December 6, 2021, in his last major act as mayor of New York City,
    Democrat Bill de Blasio announced that, to stop the spread of the
    omicron variant of COVID-19, all 184,000 private businesses in the city
    would henceforth be commanded to enforce vaccine mandates on their
    employees, and all children ages 5 and up (including tourists from
    countries that hadn't yet approved pediatric vaccines) would need to
    show proof of full immunization before entering most indoor venues.


    "Look at a country like Germany right now—shutdowns, restrictions," de
    Blasio explained in a follow-up interview. "We cannot let that happen.
    So we had to take decisive action."

    Five days later, as the Northeast was experiencing a third consecutive
    winter surge of coronavirus cases, Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul
    announced that all businesses in New York would be required to ensure
    their employees and customers were either provably vaccinated or masked
    indoors at all times; each violation would be subject to a $1,000 fine.
    The new rules were applicable through January 15, "after which the State >>> will re-evaluate based on current conditions."

    Hochul's announcement came almost six months to the day after her
    predecessor, Andrew Cuomo, had lifted almost all statewide COVID
    restrictions, including most indoor masking, on the occasion of New York >>> meeting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) target of
    having 70 percent of adults receive at least one vaccination dose. "We
    can now return to life as we know it," Cuomo crowed then. By the time of >>> Hochul's reversal, the one-shot rate among adult New Yorkers had risen
    to 93 percent.

    The goal posts on pandemic policy haven't just been shifted, they've
    been uprooted, hitched to a helicopter, and transported to a different
    county. Joe Biden as president-elect on December 4, 2020, said, "I don't >>> think [vaccines] should be mandatory." His spokeswoman Jen Psaki on July >>> 23, 2021, added, "That's not the role of the federal government." CDC
    Director Rochelle Walensky stated unequivocally on July 31 that "there
    will be no federal mandate."

    Biden announced a federal vaccine mandate on private employers with 100
    or more workers five weeks later.

    "I've tried everything in my power to get people vaccinated," the
    president maintained. "But even after all those efforts, we still had
    more than a quarter of people in the United States who were eligible for >>> vaccinations but didn't get the shot….So, while I didn't race to do it
    right away, that's why I've had to move toward requirements." Look at
    what you made him do.

    It was easier to make fun of presidential dissembling about pandemic
    policy back when Donald Trump was holding extemporaneous bull sessions
    about COVID every day on the White House lawn, or when he infamously
    unveiled on March 16, 2020, a bullet-pointed presentation titled "15
    Days to Slow the Spread." Even factoring in hindsight bias, that was an
    absurdly irresponsible prediction to make about a virus already ripping
    through every continent at a time when testing (especially in the U.S.)
    was woefully inadequate.

    Law & Contemporary Problems Symposium on "Sex in Law" Publishes Disputed >>> Article
    But Trump back then, like his then-lionized, now-disgraced rival Cuomo,
    was operating in an environment exponentially more impoverished, in
    terms of both knowledge and mitigation strategies, than what public
    officials enjoy now. The one-shot vaccination rate for American adults
    was not 86 percent (as it is as this magazine goes to press) but 0
    percent. We were still being reminded to wash our hands several times a
    day for 20 seconds at a time and implored to studiously avoid touching
    our faces. And perhaps because the idea of government dictating most
    human activity outside the home was then still novel, politicians tended >>> to tether restrictions to specific metrics. (Cuomo's "flatten the curve" >>> mantra referred to the trajectory of hospitalizations vs. the hard
    number of hospital beds.) Immediate-term discomforts were routinely sold >>> with visions of long-term relief.

    "If everyone makes…these critical changes and sacrifices now," Trump
    said on "Slow the Spread" day, as a phalanx of top public health
    officials looked on, "we will rally together as one nation, and we will
    defeat the virus, and we're going to have a big celebration all
    together. With several weeks of focused action, we can turn the corner
    and turn it quickly."

    As the families of 800,000 dead Americans can grimly attest, no such
    corners were ever turned. Yet what has replaced those naive and
    prematurely optimistic projections is something no less cruel.

    Benchmarks for lifting restrictions have been serially rewritten or
    quietly dropped, often with little explanation. Major policy promises
    have been made and broken within the same week. And you can't just blame >>> the capriciousness on the shifting viral facts on the ground—bureaucrats >>> have been agonizingly slow to recognize advances in knowledge that
    support policy loosening yet lightning-fast when reacting to any new
    source of fear. It took the Biden administration and his fellow
    Democrats in New York no time at all to put the clampdown on the omicron >>> variant, but it took the CDC and most coastal state governments more
    than a year to internalize that people are not catching COVID-19 outdoors. >>>
    By making a zig-zagging series of arbitrary and far-reaching edicts,
    officials have squandered public trust in allegedly neutral scientific
    institutions and effectively abandoned persuasion for coercion. Instead
    of a light at the end of the tunnel—or even endemic coping at the end of >>> pandemic panic—we're being offered a future of politicians reluctantly
    handing out a carrot or two before reaching once again for the stick.

    The 1-2 Punch in the Mouth
    "Everybody has a plan," former heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson famously
    said, "until they get punched in the mouth." Not only did COVID-19 punch >>> millions of people in the mouth, but government reaction to the virus
    proved a second blow from which scores of millions of businesses and
    families have been painfully slow to recover.

    In December 2020, Gavin Newsom, California's Democratic governor, banned >>> outdoor dining in regions where available hospital ICU capacity was
    below 15 percent. A judge opined (accurately) within a week that the
    policy was "not grounded in science, evidence, or logic." Newsom then
    rescinded the order seven weeks later without the threshold having been
    met in most of the state.

    De Blasio shut down New York City public schools in November 2020
    because the rate of positive tests among all New Yorkers had risen above >>> 3 percent, even though that community spread threshold was far below
    those recommended by international health authorities, and weekly tests
    inside school buildings were showing a miniscule positivity rate of 0.18 >>> percent. The mayor removed that consideration for elementary schools 10
    days later and for middle schools and high schools four months later.
    Science!

    Imagine being a landlord during the past two years. First, COVID
    suddenly increases the chances that your tenants will be unable to pay
    their rent and prompts millions of renegotiated leases. Then, six months >>> later, the Trump administration makes the absurd and facially
    unconstitutional decision to put the CDC in charge of enforcing a
    federal moratorium on evictions. Set aside for a moment that gross
    violation of property rights, and visualize instead what it must have
    been like to try to make any plan at all about residential real estate.

    On June 24, 2021, the CDC made what it described as "the final extension >>> of the moratorium," pushing it out to July 31. At an August 2 White
    House press briefing, Psaki announced that "CDC Director Rochelle
    Walensky and her team have been unable to find legal authority for a
    new, targeted eviction moratorium." Literally the next day, the CDC
    announced a new, targeted eviction moratorium covering 90 percent of the >>> country. (The Supreme Court would at the end of month swat that reversal >>> down.)

    With the exception of the occasional court ruling, governmental bodies
    have largely given up on the idea that there is any limiting principle
    to their vast new pandemic powers. Relatedly, they no longer sell
    today's restrictions as a ticket to tomorrow's freedoms. Whenever a new
    wave forms, politicians brace constituents for a quick slap now to put
    off yet another mouth-punch later.

    Hochul portrayed her December mask-and-vaccine crackdown as a way to
    "prevent business disruption"; de Blasio sold his new mandates by
    saying, "We cannot let those restrictions come back. We cannot have
    shutdowns here in New York City. We've got to keep moving forward."

    Vaccinations have helped decouple infections from hospitalization and
    death, especially with the more infectious but less lethal omicron
    variant. Yet elites kept focusing on case rates instead of serious
    illness, sowing panic and clampdowns in the process. "Massachusetts is
    the most vaccinated state in the country and yet here we are in a surge
    of COVID that is just as bad as where we were last year at this point,"
    University of Massachusetts Memorial Health Care President Eric Dickson
    said in an NBC Nightly News scare story in December. At the time of
    Dickson's startling claim, the Bay State's seven-day average of deaths
    was 17, compared to 51 the year before.

    All of which contributes to the suspicion that governmental
    interventions will just stretch out forever. "It is good policy and
    practice to establish off-ramps for interventions that aren't meant to
    be permanent," Johns Hopkins epidemiologist Jennifer Nuzzo wrote in
    November 2021. "We should be able to answer what conditions would enable >>> an end."

    But politicians and public health officials, particularly in
    Democratic-controlled institutions, are increasingly unable to spell out >>> any such conditions. For them there is no end in sight.

    Ripping the Mask Off
    The first vaccine shots for 5- to 11-year-olds were made available
    November 3. On November 5 came reports that a new therapeutic from
    Pfizer preliminarily demonstrated a remarkable ability to prevent
    serious illness and death in people already sick from COVID. That same
    day, Walensky chose to release an "Ask the Expert" video replying to the >>> question, "Why do I still need to wear a mask?"

    "The evidence is clear," responded the country's highest-ranking public
    health scientist. "Masks can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by
    reducing your chance of infection by more than 80 percent, whether it's
    an infection from the flu, from the coronavirus, or even just the common >>> cold. In combination with other steps, like getting your vaccination,
    hand washing, and keeping physical distance, wearing your mask is an
    important step you can take to keep us all healthy."

    It was a breathtakingly irresponsible remark.

    For two years, as the country has engaged in bitterly partisan and
    intensely moralistic debates over nonpharmaceutical interventions
    (NPIs)—masking, social distancing, business closures—the single greatest >>> difference maker by far in blunting the lethal impact of the virus has
    been vaccination. Unvaccinated Americans were 10 to 20 times more likely >>> to die from COVID-19 in fall 2021 than those who had received their shots. >>>
    Yet here was Walensky, the very week immunization became available to
    most elementary school kids, putting vaccination on the same list as the >>> mostly (and rightfully) forgotten NPIs of hand washing and social
    distancing, in order to counteract any possible erosion in support for a >>> far inferior NPI. By relegating the vaccine to the status of an
    afterthought, not only did the CDC director snuff out hope among many
    parents that their children's masks will ever come off, but she also
    butchered the science.

    There does not exist a study showing masks to reduce wearers' COVID
    infectiousness by anything close to 80 percent. In fact, most studies
    conducted at that time had not even found the vaccines to be 80 percent
    effective at stopping transmission in the delta era (although they did
    better at stopping symptomatic cases and hospitalizations). Choosing the >>> arrival of pediatric vaccines as an opportunity to greatly exaggerate
    the effectiveness of face coverings sent the implicit message to parents >>> that no amount of compliance will free their kids from masks.

    In a tweet promoting the video, Walensky touted the non-COVID virtues of >>> wearing face coverings forever. "Masks," she wrote, "also help protect >>>from other illnesses like common cold and flu." There was a time when
    having a smiling government doctor suggest open-ended masking for cold
    and flu seasons would have been seen as too implausibly authoritarian.

    Yet when the CDC talks, governments in the kinds of places where people
    have "In this house, we believe in science" yard signs tend to
    rubber-stamp the recommendations. As of mid-December, 15 states had mask >>> mandates for K-12 schools; all 15 voted for Biden in November 2020. (The >>> two states with also problematic school-mask-mandate bans both voted for >>> Trump.) In New York, children 2 and older are required by law to wear
    masks all day long in any public or private school or daycare setting,
    despite being in the age cohort with the lowest COVID hospitalization
    rate, and despite the fact that their teachers must be vaccinated by
    law. (The vaccinated Hochul, who at age 63 is much more vulnerable to
    COVID than is an unvaccinated 4-year-old, has infuriated her critics by
    appearing in countless social media photos indoors, amid crowds, unmasked.) >>>
    Colorado, a purple state with a libertarian-leaning Democratic governor, >>> has taken a considerably different approach. "There was a time when
    there was no vaccine, and masks were all we had, and we needed to wear
    them," Democratic Gov. Jared Polis told Colorado Public Radio in
    December. "The truth is we now have highly effective vaccines that work
    far better than masks. If you wear a mask, it does decrease your risk of >>> getting COVID, and that's a good thing to do indoors around others. But
    if you get COVID and you are still unvaccinated, the case is just as bad >>> as if you were not wearing a mask. Everybody had more than enough
    opportunity to get vaccinated….At this point, if you haven't been
    vaccinated, it's really your own darn fault." Was that so hard?

    For the rest of the country, the scenes playing out in restrictionist
    states look alien, dystopian: kids shivering while eating lunch outside
    in frigid Portland, Oregon; high schoolers in New York City (where the
    positive COVID rate among regularly tested unvaccinated kids was less
    than 0.3 percent this fall) still holding debate tournaments on Zoom;
    glum TV commercials warning parents that "without the vaccine, when your >>> child's teammates take the field, they'll miss out. Or when their
    friends go off to the movies, a concert, or get a bite to eat, your teen >>> will miss out."

    Asked about some of those images in December, White House spokeswoman
    Psaki replied, "I will tell you, I have a 3-year-old who goes to school, >>> sits outside for snacks and lunch, wears a mask inside, and it's no big
    deal to him….These are steps that schools are taking to keep kids safe." >>>
    Yet the evidence that Psaki's kid is actually safer because of such
    precautions has proven damnably difficult for the CDC to produce.
    America's school masking guidance is a global outlier—the World Health
    Organization recommends against masking children aged 5 and younger, and >>> only a handful of countries in the European Union were masking
    elementary school students in fall 2021. In trying to persuade the
    public that it's actually rational and prudent, the country's public
    health agency has never once cited a masking study that included a
    meaningful control group. Officials are operating on intuition, and as a >>> result tens of millions of children are degrading their physical
    comfort, social development, and language acquisition. All to avoid
    contracting and spreading a virus they are far less susceptible to than
    are vaccinated adults.

    Misrepresenting science to produce a preferred policy outcome is a
    terrible way to build trust during a pandemic. Adding to that sense of
    suspicion is the fact that the CDC at the beginning of the pandemic
    actively downplayed the effectiveness of masks, out of worry that scared >>> consumers would hoard the then-scarce supply of medical-quality
    protective equipment needed by doctors and nurses. "Seriously
    people—STOP BUYING MASKS!" tweeted then–Surgeon General Jerome Adams on
    February 29, 2020. "They are NOT effective in preventing [the] general
    public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can't get >>> them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!" >>>
    The Biden administration was supposed to bring more scientific rigor
    into the building, yet Walensky has repeatedly massaged research
    findings to fit her policy desires for Americans to be swathed in real
    and metaphorical prophylactics. The CDC dropped its guidance for outdoor >>> masking only in April 2021, and even then only among vaccinated people.
    The moderately populated state of Washington, with its spectacular
    forests, coastline, and mountains, still has an outdoor mask requirement. >>>
    As America braced for the omicron wave before Christmas, the blue-state
    mandates started to emerge: vaccine passports for Philadelphia,
    booster-shot requirements at several elite universities, a renewed
    indoor mask mandate in California. "The imperative is to get through
    this winter surge," Newsom said. "And to do so in a way where we come
    out the other side and we have a chance to reevaluate."

    Schools in heavily Democratic districts—Cleveland, Ohio; Newark, New
    Jersey; West Chicago, Illinois; Prince George's County,
    Maryland—preemptively responded to the omicron surge after Christmas
    break by once again shifting to remote-only learning. At the Brooklyn
    elementary school that my first-grader is zoned for, teachers staged a
    post-break sickout that precipitated a last-minute closure. "We are
    demanding," they wrote in a letter to outraged parents, "the city and
    our union take…actions to stop the spread."

    So just a few more weeks to stop the spread. Or months. Or years.

    End of Scottish face mask rules delayed until Easter

    Scotland's mandatory face covering rules will now remain in force until
    18 April, Nicola Sturgeon has announced.

    The legal requirement to wear masks in shops and on public transport had >>> been expected to be lifted next week.

    But the first minister told MSPs that the changes would now not take
    effect until 18 April.

    She said this was due to there still being a very high level of
    infection in Scotland, and because masks provide extra protection.

    However, the requirement to wear a face covering in places of worship
    and while attending marriage and funeral services will end on 4 April.

    Ms Sturgeon said this phased approach struck a "sensible balance between >>> our desire to remove this one remaining legal measure and the common
    sense need for continued caution".

    Case numbers have hit record levels in Scotland in recent weeks, with

    Both Deputy First Minister John Swinney and Justice Secretary Keith
    Brown tested positive on Wednesday morning, just hours before Ms
    Sturgeon made her announcement.

    Ms Sturgeon said the daily figures remained high but were "perhaps
    stabilising", with a 15% fall from about 12,000 cases to 10,200 over the >>> past week.

    She said there was therefore "grounds for optimism that this latest wave >>> of infection may now have peaked".

    However she said the high levels of infection and the pressure it was
    placing on the NHS meant the planned lifting of the law on face
    coverings would be delayed until 18 April.

    She told MSPs that this would be a "proportionate precautionary measure
    while we pass the peak of this latest wave".

    This is the second time the first minister has delayed lifting the face
    mask laws, which had originally been due to be removed on 21 March.

    All of Scotland's other legal restrictions have already been phased out. >>>

    fewer virus particles needed to be inhaled to catch it.

    She said: "The surgical and cotton masks just allow for a little more of >>> the virus to get through. They are still very good for people who are
    lower risk - they stop them shedding a lot of virus into the environment. >>>
    "For people who are more vulnerable it is probably the moment to
    increase to an FFP2 mask just until the pressure in the environment from >>> so many people infected actually decreases."

    Dr Tait-Burkard said she did not believe legal enforcement of face masks >>> was needed any more, and that recommending people wear them in high risk >>> environments was the right thing to do.

    'Bitterly disappointing'
    The mask laws will now be phased out, with the requirement to wear them
    in places of worship and at services to be dropped on 4 April.

    Ms Sturgeon was pictured without a mask at a memorial service for Prince >>> Philip on Tuesday, but insisted that she wore one on the train and
    "abided by the rules" while in England.

    The Scottish Licensed Trade Association said it would have set a better
    example for the first minister to wear a face covering, adding that it
    was "bitterly disappointing" the changes had been delayed in Scotland.

    Managing director Colin Wilkinson said the pause would ultimately make
    little difference as "the lack of use of face coverings is already
    clearly evident in many settings".

    And the Scottish Chambers of Commerce said the "prolonging of Covid-19
    rules" might make Scotland a less attractive tourist destination.

    How have infection rates changed recently in Scotland? Seven-day average >>> to 30 March. Showing cases by date of test. Includes PCR and LFT results. >>> Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross said Scotland's case rate
    being higher than other parts of the UK showed that the first minister's >>> "strategy is clearly failing".

    He said: "She is keeping restrictions in place here in Scotland weeks
    after they have been removed elsewhere.

    "We believe that anyone who wants to keep wearing a face mask should do
    so, but it should be down to individual choice as it is in other parts
    of the UK.

    "We should leave it up to people and businesses to decide what is best
    for them based on public health advice - Nicola Sturgeon has to start
    trusting the people of Scotland."

    Ms Sturgeon accused the Tory leader of being "seriously out of step with >>> the vast majority of people".

    She said: "Particularly in public places where people don't always have
    a choice about being, people have to go to shops and therefore if we all >>> wear face coverings in shops right now we help protect each other.

    "For a couple of weeks more while we see this wave of infection peak and >>> start to fall I think that is a sensible thing to do."

    The testing system is also being wound down in Scotland, with the
    population-wide contact tracing system to be shut down by the end of April. >>>
    Scottish Labour's deputy leader Jackie Baillie said infection levels
    were concerning, calling for more details about future support and
    testing for vulnerable people.

    She said: "While life is returning to near normality for many, that is
    not the case for those who are immunocompromised and the 180,000 who
    were on the shielding list."

    Ms Sturgeon said vulnerable people were being offered extra booster
    jabs, and that testing would continue to be used in a targeted way to
    support them.

    As The Country Returns To Normal, College Campuses Double Down On
    Covid-19 Restrictions

    Why is George Washington University treating fully vaccinated and
    boosted college-aged students as if we are the most vulnerable

    If you happen to stumble onto the campus of George Washington University >>> in Washington, D.C., you will find that Covid-19 is a greater part of
    our everyday lives than it is almost anywhere else in the country. The
    only possible exceptions to this are other college campuses — many of
    which have remained equally as, or more, restrictive.

    While many campuses are getting back to normal, there are more than a
    few holdouts. At Connecticut College — which went virtual last year amid >>> uber-restrictive Covid-19 policies — students are not only required to
    wear masks in all indoor settings, but also outside when they are
    “socializing in particularly close proximity to others.” Even in their
    own dorm, students must mask unless only with a roommate and the door is >>> closed. Places such as New York University still have full mask mandates >>> in place, while many others — such as University of Illinois and
    Michigan — still require them in class, but have relaxed the mandate in
    other situations.


    GW, where I am a sophomore majoring in international affairs and
    economics, has decided to keep a full mask mandate in effect “until
    further notice,” and the university “strongly recommends the use of N95
    or KN95 masks.” This means masks are required in every class, every dorm >>> hall (even in individual rooms when socializing with people one does not >>> live with), and every school building, with no exceptions. At the
    beginning of the semester, the people in charge of my dorm building sent >>> an email warning students that a failure to wear a mask — even if one
    was eating or drinking — would result in being reported to the school.

    On top of this mask mandate, on-campus students are required to take
    part in GW’s “asymptomatic surveillance testing” program. In practice,
    this means that they are required to take a Covid-19 test approximately
    every week and a half, even if they are completely asymptomatic. If one
    misses the deadline, his access to nearly every university building
    (except for their dorm hall) is removed until he gets the test.

    GW’s Approach Is Illogical
    These Covid-19 measures are in place despite a few important factors.
    First, young people (i.e., the population of GW) are at, by far, the
    lowest risk to become severely ill or die from Covid-19. Second, all
    students at GW have been required to provide proof to the school that
    they are vaccinated and boosted. If the near-100 percent natural
    protection from being young was not enough, the fact that all students
    are thrice-vaxxed surely means Covid-19 poses, in practical terms, no
    threat to them.

    Moreover, GW can no longer use DC’s law — nor the CDC’s guidance — to
    justify their policy. After all, the mask mandate in DC is now gone and
    the CDC only recommends masks in “high-risk” areas — a classification
    that does not apply to DC. In fact, DC falls into the “low risk”
    category, which means that people should “Wear a mask based on your
    personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.” The last
    time DC had a seven-day average of over 100 cases per day was back in
    February, and GW has a positivity rate hovering around 1.0 percent.


    So why is GW treating fully vaccinated and boosted college-aged students >>> — in a city with minimal Covid-19 transmission — as if we are the most
    vulnerable population to Covid-19 when, in fact, we are the least
    vulnerable?

    GW Can’t Justify Masking
    On March 21, I emailed the university president, GW’s dean of health
    affairs, and GW’s dean of students, asking why they thought GW’s
    restrictive Covid-19 measures remained necessary. I hoped to get insight >>> and clarity that the university’s previous public statements had not
    provided.

    As of today, I have received only one reply. The email came from a
    representative of GW’s Division for Student Affairs, and he declined to
    answer my question. Instead, the representative directed me to GW’s
    Office of Media Relations. Upon further inquiry with the Office of Media >>> Relations, I was, first, directed to the university’s previous
    statements and, second, informed that GW has not changed its Covid-19
    restrictions because of “our

    Anger Over Covid Lockdowns Mounts in Shanghai

    Restrictions have strained nerves and livelihoods in China’s largest and >>> wealthiest city, eroding some residents’ trust in authorities; ‘I’ve
    lost confidence in this government’
    By Stella Yifan Xie and Natasha Khan
    April 15, 2022 12:15 pm ET
    Discontent is deepening across Shanghai, China’s largest and wealthiest
    city, now several weeks into a rigid lockdown aimed at crushing a Covid
    outbreak that is straining the nerves and affecting livelihoods of its
    25 million residents and eroding the public’s trust in authorities.
    The effects that have played out in recent weeks—food shortages, lack of >>> access to medical care, overcrowded quarantine centers and infants
    separated from their parents—have frayed nerves across a city that has
    long prided itself as a pragmatic financial hub at the forefront of
    China’s decadeslong shift to a market economy.
    “I’ve lost confidence in this government,” said one 36-year-old Shanghai >>> native surnamed Chen, who declined to provide his given name because it
    remains risky to openly criticize political leaders. “Only during a
    crisis can you make a proper evaluation of the government’s performance.” >>> Mr. Chen, who has been confined at home for more than a month, said he
    hasn’t been able to feed his family of four on the government-supplied
    rations of vegetables and milk. While he has managed to order some
    groceries online, soaring prices and scarce supplies of bread and other
    essentials risk draining his savings as the lockdown drags on, he said.
    “We’ve waited patiently for the lockdown to get lifted. When will this
    end?” he said.
    Shanghai eased rules in some neighborhoods this week, but most residents >>> remain confined to their homes. Some expressed worries about food and
    said they are increasingly disillusioned by the prospect of an
    open-ended Covid lockdown.
    Among more than two dozen residents who spoke from lockdown, some said
    they are reaching a breaking point more than two years into the
    pandemic. Some are considering leaving the country for good.
    “The damage has been done,” said Liu Yun, a 34-year-old Shanghai native
    and technology entrepreneur who said he has begun contemplating
    emigrating to Singapore while confined at home with his wife and two
    children. “More elites will start re-evaluating their relationship with
    the city and this country.”
    Even those who aren’t considering leaving said they expect some economic >>> and psychological scars to endure, along with resentment toward Beijing. >>> China has stuck to a zero-Covid policy under Chinese leader Xi Jinping,
    who is widely expected this fall to extend his rule for at least another >>> five years.
    Eighty-seven of China’s biggest 100 cities, from Changchun in the
    country’s far northeast to its southern metropolis of Guangzhou,
    collectively accounting for more than half of China’s population and
    overall economic output, have imposed restrictions on movements and
    activities because of the current outbreak, according to an estimate by
    Gavekal Dragonomics, a research firm. On Friday, Xi’an, which earlier
    this year emerged from a monthlong lockdown, tightened restrictions again. >>>

    Few cities in China have the economic and political importance of
    Shanghai, which for most of the past century has been a base of
    prosperity at the forefront of the country’s engagement with the world.
    Shanghai has served as a laboratory for many of China’s most important
    market reforms. It is home to the world’s largest container port, the
    country’s main stock exchange and many of its leading scholars, writers
    and artists.
    The city has been a crucial steppingstone for generations of China’s
    leaders, including Mr. Xi, who was appointed the city’s top party
    official in 2007.
    Shanghai earlier had a more lenient Covid strategy, using targeted
    lockdowns for affected residences, but tightened and extended
    restrictions amid a visit by
    Sun Chunlan, a vice premier, beginning April 2. Residents see the change >>> as a sign Beijing demanded full compliance with China’s zero-Covid
    policy, which Mr. Xi has touted.
    A spokesperson for the Shanghai government didn’t respond to a request
    for comment.
    Even as Covid cases spread in the city this spring, authorities insisted >>> that a citywide lockdown wouldn’t be necessary—right up until the day
    before the abrupt March 27 announcement of mass lockdown measures that
    caught tens of millions of residents unprepared.
    That initial lockdown was set to last four days for the eastern half of
    the city, then four days for the western half. With case counts still
    soaring to new highs, however, authorities then said the lockdown would
    be extended indefinitely. Many of those confined to their homes because
    of potential contact with Covid cases before the citywide lockdown have
    already been kept at home for more than a month, with no clear prospect
    of release soon.
    Residents said they worry that even after the citywide restrictions are
    lifted, the Omicron variant’s transmissibility means sudden lockdowns
    and tough tactics could return at any time, casting a cloud of
    uncertainty that could last for years.
    Since the broad lockdowns began in late March, food shortages have
    spread as pandemic measures upended supply chains, leaving some reliant
    on bartering and the goodwill of neighbors to survive. Some patients
    with non-Covid medical needs have been left to fend for themselves,
    while many have resisted being sent to the city’s chaotic and in some
    cases unhygienic makeshift quarantine centers.
    Shanghai on Thursday reported a record 27,000 new daily infections for
    the prior day, bringing the city’s total official caseload since March 1 >>> to more than 220,000 so far. While no deaths have been reported by
    authorities, at least three large elderly care hospitals have been
    overwhelmed by Covid outbreaks, resulting in patient deaths.
    Authorities have been swift to censor people’s complaints and what they
    call rumors online. On March 22, two men who shared information about
    Shanghai’s coming lockdown were investigated by the police on suspicions >>> of “spreading fabricated information.” As the lockdown continues, more
    people are venting frustration at the Covid restrictions, saying they
    are harming people’s livelihoods and straining medical resources,
    despite potential repercussions.
    In a viral online post, one Shanghai resident complained that the
    endurance of residents had “reached its limit,” listing a litany of
    tragedies and grievances. “Are there officials who still listen to the
    people?” wrote the person, who identified herself only as An Ordinary
    Citizen. “How much more do we have to pay in exchange for truly putting
    people first?”
    The post was blocked on Thursday for a few hours before being restored
    that evening. The person didn’t respond to a request for comment.

    Community workers delivered food rations on Tuesday.

    Frank Tsai, a longtime Shanghai resident who hosts business and cultural >>> events through his company China Crossroads, initially supported the
    country’s strict Covid measures, but said he was shocked by the food and >>> supply bottlenecks in Shanghai, which is widely regarded as one of
    China’s most progressive and best-managed cities.
    “This regime from its very founding was built on the elimination of
    material anxiety, so it’s ironic that food insecurity is happening in
    Shanghai of all places,” he said.
    People must “firmly hold on to its pandemic policy without wavering,”
    China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency said Thursday in an editorial,
    calling on the public to “look at the big picture” despite the
    hardships. “Persistence is victory,” Mr. Xi was quoted saying.
    The People’s Daily, the Communist Party organ, implored citizens to
    “grit their teeth” and put their faith in government officials.
    Some expatriates said the current lockdown is the final straw after
    several years in which they felt China was turning increasingly inward.
    “We are at a critical point. People are really fed up,” said Bettina
    Schoen-Behanzin, vice president of the European Union Chamber of
    Commerce in China.
    Mr. Liu, the technology entrepreneur, was first confined to his home
    with his wife and two children on March 14, when the entrance to his
    residential compound was abruptly sealed after several neighbors were
    identified as “close contacts” with infected individuals. Later, the
    stringent citywide lockdowns began.

    Li Bing said he worried about what would happen to his cats if he tests
    positive.
    PHOTO: LI BING
    Mr. Liu’s social-media feed became filled with videos and messages of
    physical conflicts between residents and health workers tasked with
    keeping people at home, making him more anxious and pessimistic.
    “I’m afraid that this fight against the pandemic will evolve into some
    kind of social movement, where people at the bottom of the society end
    up hurting each other,” said Mr. Liu. “That’s terrifying.”
    Mr. Liu said he also worries about the roughly 200 employees at the
    company he founded 10 years ago, a business-to-business e-commerce
    platform, many of whom are struggling to get enough food during the
    lockdown. His company, too, is struggling from waning demand that he
    attributes in part to the country’s lockdowns.
    Li Bing, a 33-year-old employee at a different technology company, said
    he felt emotionally weighed down after reading numerous online pleas >>>from residents struggling to get enough food and medical help. Last
    week, a video showing a pandemic prevention worker in a hazmat suit
    beating a corgi to death after its owners were sent to a centralized
    quarantine center sparked online fury.
    “What would happen to my cats? Would they be beaten to death?” said Mr.
    Li, a native of Xi’an who has lived in Shanghai for six years with his
    girlfriend and two cats. He said the prospect of testing positive for
    Covid has stirred his anxiety and made him more eager to leave China
    than ever.
    “We have witnessed so many humanitarian disasters already,” said Mr. Li. >>> “I simply want to live as a normal person, with dignity.”

    UNSETTLING footage appears to show young children in Shanghai dressed in >>> hazmat suits amid China's zero Covid policy.

    The dystopian clip shows a group of youngsters covered from head to toe
    heading to school during the world's strictest lockdown.

    The kids, who seem to be of primary school age, are also wearing face

    The worrying scenes come as earlier this month heartbreaking images
    showed toddlers screaming their heads off after they were forcibly
    removed from their parents and kept in cages.

    Shanghai's 26 million residents have been plunged into an extremely
    strict lockdown for more than five weeks with Chinese authorities
    justifying it as a way to get the city's Covid cases under control.

    China's most populated city reported a record number of positive cases
    on Saturday and other areas across China tightened controls as the
    country kept up its zero Covid approach.

    Shanghai is struggling to contain the outbreak with more than 20,000
    Covid cases a day being reported over at least 10 days.

    Most of the city’s residents are trapped in their homes, with chilling
    footage showing ordinary citizens screaming spontaneously from
    desperation, after being forbidden to leave their homes for over a week. >>>
    Under China's draconian Covid rules, anyone found positive - even if
    asymptomatic or with a mild infection - must be isolated from
    non-infected people.

    Earlier this week a sickening clip showed police in Shanghai stuffing
    dozens of live cats in bags to be slaughtered.

    The cruel approach to handling Covid has rocked the city to its core,
    sparking mass panic, anxiety and outrage amongst horrified residents.

    In a shocking video that went viral on Chinese social media, starving

    It comes as earlier this week a pet corgi was filmed being beaten to
    death by a health care worker after its owner tested positive for Covid. >>>

    ‘It’s Just Scaring People, and It’s Not Saving Lives’
    Stories about the pandemic’s continuing risks for immunocompromised >people may create unintended harms.

    By Benjamin Mazer

    SHARE
    As the United States nears its numbing, millionth COVID death and
    shrugs
    its shoulders at a rise in cases, some Americans are feeling left
    behind. Immunocompromised people have suffered disproportionately >throughout the pandemic, and even those who have been fully vaccinated >wonder if they’re really safe. News stories highlight their
    struggles to
    adapt to a society that “doesn’t seem to care whether they survive.” “I >could just go outside and within two weeks, I could be dead,” a >fibromyalgia sufferer told ABC News last month. She went on to say, “It >kind of feels like immunocompromised people are getting sacrificed.”

    This dramatic coverage underscores the continuing risks of the
    pandemic,
    especially for those who are most vulnerable: Immunocompromised people >who get vaccinated aren’t quite as safe as the general vaccinated >population. (The degree of added risk depends on the underlying >condition.) But well-intentioned stories on this issue sometimes >overstate the case, claiming that COVID shots for the immunocompromised >are “ineffective” or “cannot work on everyone.” That is incorrect, and
    it hinders uptake of vaccines. The shots do provide these patients with >very meaningful protection as a rule, Jennifer Nuzzo, the director of
    the Pandemic Center at Brown University School of Public Health, told
    me. To suggest otherwise “is just a complete distortion … It’s just >scaring people, and it’s not saving lives.”

    When the mRNA vaccines finally arrived, at the end of 2020, their value >for immunocompromised people remained unclear. Members of this
    high-risk
    group were specifically excluded from the first trials performed by >Pfizer and Moderna. Patients and their doctors had only scientific
    scraps to guide them in the months that followed: small, preliminary >studies that recorded antibody levels after shots. The initial results >weren’t promising at all. One study found that just 54 percent of >organ-transplant patients, who require the most powerful
    immune-dampening drugs, had detectable antibodies after two vaccine >doses; and when present, these protective proteins accumulated in much >lower quantities than were observed in the general population. Some >astute patients had their own antibody levels measured and declared >themselves “vaccinated but not protected” when the results came up
    short.

    Sure enough, when Omicron arrived last fall, immunocompromised people >were hit the hardest. A study conducted by Kaiser Permanente in >California showed that immunocompromised patients who had received
    three
    Moderna doses were just 29 percent protected from Omicron infection—as >compared with the 71 percent protection afforded others. Some patients’ >antibody levels can still be low after three, four, or even five
    vaccine
    doses. (Three primary doses and two boosters are now recommended for
    this population.)

    Yet there’s a silver lining. Antibodies matter, but they matter most
    for
    preventing illness, at any level of severity. Regarding the most >dangerous outcomes from disease, recent research from the CDC indicates >that—shot for shot—the immunocompromised achieve most of the same >benefits as healthy people. One study, published in March, looked at
    the
    pandemic’s Delta wave and found that three doses of an mRNA vaccine
    gave
    immunocompromised people 87 percent protection against hospitalization, >compared with 97 percent for others. Another CDC report, also out last >month, suggested that on the very worst outcomes—the need for a
    breathing tube, or death—mRNA vaccines were 74 percent effective for >immunocompromised patients (including many who hadn’t gotten all their >shots), and 92 percent effective for the immunocompetent. A >10-to-20-percentage-point gap in safety from the most dire outcomes is >consequential, especially for those who are most susceptible to the >disease. Still, these results should reassure us that the >immunocompromised are not fighting this battle unarmed.


    That reassurance means all the more when so many members of the >chronic-disease community feel left for dead by the casual reversals of >pandemic funding and restrictions. But in place of measured consolation >from the experts, they find offhanded comments saying that the vaccines >“don’t work” for them (as one public-health-school dean tweeted earlier >this month). This despairing rhetoric can’t be helping to encourage >vaccination. The CDC hasn’t published data on what proportion of the >immunocompromised remain unvaccinated or undervaccinated, but one
    survey
    of 21,000 autoimmune patients taking immunosuppressive medications, >conducted by a network of rheumatology clinics, found that, as of last >September, one in four hadn’t received any shots. Several clinicians >involved with this population told me that, even now, many patients are >unvaccinated.

    Michael Putman, a rheumatologist at the Medical College of Wisconsin

    within

    and clinical outcomes.


    A large CDC analysis of two-dose vaccine regimens within the >immunocompromised population found that rheumatologic patients saw

Robert Rakita, a transplant-infectious-disease >specialist at the University of Washington, told me that some of his >patients have died from COVID despite having had three or four mRNA >injections. He recommends that all vaccinated organ recipients continue >to wear a mask and avoid crowded indoor activities. But such patients >make up just 8 percent of the 7 million Americans estimated to be
    taking
    medications that weaken their immune system. When COVID reporting >casually lumps together all “immunocompromised” patients, it papers

    these differences. Readers are left to think that a fibromyalgia
    patient
    and a kidney recipient face similar risks.

    For chronically ill people, political power derives in part from group >solidarity; the larger the contingent, the louder the voice.

According to this >paradoxical arithmetic, half of the country can end up in the “high
    risk” category by some definition. In truth, we all remain
    vulnerable to
    COVID; inoculation isn’t 100 percent effective in any demographic. The >threat of long COVID also lingers. But the peril is far more
    concentrated than generic references to “chronic conditions” or >“comorbidities” would suggest. Age continues to be, far and away, the >most powerful risk factor for becoming seriously ill from the >coronavirus. Putman, the rheumatologist, uses an example of a

    Protesters Call for Chicago to Reinstate Mask Mandate Due to Rising
    COVID Cases
    Both Illinois and Chicago rescinded their mask mandates in February
    following decreases in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations

    A number of Chicago residents stood together in the Little Village
    neighborhood Sunday, pleading for the city to reinstate its COVID-19
    mask mandate to prevent a possible surge following another uptick in cases. >>>
    Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez, of the city's 25th Ward, along with members of
    the People's Response Network, expressed concerns about mask mandates
    being lifted locally and nationwide.

    In late February, both the state of Illinois and city of Chicago
    rescinded their mask mandates after sustained decreases in the number of >>> new cases and hospitalizations.

    Protesters argue Chicago's Department of Public Health didn't do a good
    job at handling the pandemic and said the city's Black and Brown
    communities are still at risk. The group also presented a list of
    demands, including reintroducing the mask mandate across the city and in >>> Chicago Public Schools.

    “We need to make sure that we prioritize the well being and the health
    of our students and staff in CPS," Sigcho-Lopez said. "We have schools
    like in Pilsen in the 25th Ward, where we still have vaccination rates
    that don't even reach 50% 30%? In some cases, higher. Is it possible
    that we're still insisting on lifting a mandate?”

    The group is also pushing for the expansion of free COVID-19 testing for >>> at-risk communities on the South, Southwest and West sides of the city.

    The Illinois Department of Public Health in early April issued a COVID
    public health warning, saying "case rates are slowly rising in many
    areas of the state." Health officials advised people to pay attention to >>> the conditions in their communities and to stay up-to-date on their
    vaccinations.

    Chicago, too, has seen a recent uptick in cases.

    The city was averaging 521 daily COVID cases as of Friday, a 15% hike >>>from a week earlier, according to data from CDPH. However, both
    hospitalizations and deaths were down from the week prior.

    Andrew Sullivan On The Dobbs Leak Freakout
    MAY 7, 2022 / JACK MARSHALL


    It has been fascinating to watch Andrew Sullivan, a conservative turned
    Trump-deranged progressive during from about 2015 on, express his rising >>> dismay at his adopted “side’s” drift to totalitarianism as it uses lies
    as metaphorical oars in the stream of public opinion.. Sullivan is too
    emotional to be a reliable pundit, but he’s smart and writes like an
    angel. His current essay about how Democrats and progressives have
    abandoned even the pretense of rationality is instructive.

    He also mounts an impressive list of ridiculous statements by abortion
    fans and supposedly trustworthy progressive commentators that are
    signature significance. Nobody should trust people who say or write
    garbage like this. Ever. Here are some of Andrew’s gems, only some of
    which I had stumbled over earlier (the comments in parentheses are mine, >>> not Sullivan’s):

    Roxane Gay tweeted:“I have typed and deleted a great many comments What
    do you say when nine people can dictate what happens to your body? It’s
    ridiculous and hateful.” [That is not, of course, what a reversal of Roe >>> would mean, but disinformation has always been at the heart of the
    “pro-choice” position.]

    “The Atlantic’s Adam Serwer announced that the court had abolished the
    entire 20th century. Yep: no more suffrage for women! Jim Crow now!”



    Jessica Valenti: “Stripping women of their humanity and rights isn’t a
    consequence of the ‘pro-life’ agenda, it’s the entire point.”

    The Washington Post’s now thoroughly insane Jennifer Rubin: “The
    right-wing justices and their supporters appear ready to reject one of
    the Founders’ core principles: that religion shall not be imposed by
    government edict.” (The smear that opposing Roe constitutes a religious
    edict is truly despicable, and a lot of abortion fans are stooping to it.) >>>
    Kurt Andersen another one:“It really is kind of remarkable that only one >>> in five Americans call themselves Catholic, but of the Supreme Court
    majority apparently about to permit abortion to be outlawed, all but one >>> are Catholic and that one was raised Catholic.”

    Kamala Harris (who supports her adversary’s position every time she
    tries to counter it, whatever the topic) was, predicably, Kamala-like:

    Those Republican leaders who are trying to weaponize the use of the law
    against women. Well we say, ‘How dare they?’ How dare they tell a woman
    what she can do and cannot do with her own body? How dare they? How dare >>> they try to stop her from determining her own future? How dare they try
    to deny women their rights and their freedoms?

    To this and more, Sullivan observes,


    The premise here is that all women support abortion rights. But there is >>> no serious gender gap on this question. In fact, a majority of
    “pro-lifers” are women, not men. So Harris is effectively saying: how
    dare women be allowed a voice in this debate?

    Within minutes of the SCOTUS leak, moreover, we were told it means that
    before long, interracial marriages will be banned … in a country where
    94 percent support them! Imagine Clarence Thomas divorcing himself by
    jurisprudence….What strikes me most in these takes is the underlying
    contempt for and suspicion of the democratic process — from many of the
    same people who insist they want to save it. How dare voters have a say
    on abortion rights! The issue — which divides the country today as much
    as it has for decades — is one that apparently cannot ever be put up for >>> a vote. On this question, Democrats really do seem to believe that seven >>> men alone should make that decision — once, in 1973.

    Of course Sullivan, being Sullivan, has to ring the obligatory “a pox on >>> both their houses” bell lest he risk being tagged as Republican or a
    conservative by his LGBTQ peer group. “The emotive hyperbole [is] par
    for the course in a country where every discourse is now dialed to
    eleven,” he writes. In fact, Democrats and progressives have lapped the
    other side of the political spectrum and some since November 2016, and
    it would be ennobling if Sullivan had the courage and integrity to admit >>> it. But he doesn’t. Too bad.

    He also repeats a current bit of spin and misinformation that the Left
    has been bellowing this week. “If you look at polling, there is very
    little support in America for a total ban — let alone one that doesn’t
    make exceptions for rape and incest, ” he writes. “Gallup’s polling
    suggests that a whopping 80 percent of Americans want to keep abortion
    legal, either entirely (32 percent) or with some restrictions (48
    percent). Only 18 percent want it banned entirely — a position many
    Republicans are now forced to take. That should be a Democratic dream!”

    1. Well,you know, polls.

    2. That’s one way of looking at it.

    3. It buries the real polling revelations.

    Over at the Washington Examiner, Tim Carney points out that on both the
    issues of , Mississippi’s abortion law (banning abortions after 15
    weeks, contrary to Roe) and the substance of Roe v. Wade itself, the
    draft opinion by Justice Samuel Alito represents the majority view of
    the public:

    Begin with the law in question here: Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. >>> A very recent YouGov poll on abortion found that 21% would ban all
    abortions, an additional 20% would ban abortions after a heartbeat is
    detected (six weeks), another 13% would ban them after the first
    trimester (13 weeks), and an additional 10% would ban abortion after 15
    weeks — which is what Mississippi does.

    Add it together, and it means that 64% of people in the United States
    believe Mississippi’s law is either the right call or too liberal on
    abortion. To uphold this law is to side with the opinion of nearly
    two-thirds of America on abortion policy.

    Would Andrew’s description give you that impression?

    On the matter of abortion itself, Carney writes,

    A poll on Roe and the Supreme Court from YouGov… asked whether the
    federal government or the state governments should set abortion law, and >>> opinions were fairly split — leaning 44% to 36% in favor of the federal
    government setting it. Of those who said the federal government should
    set abortion policy, only 24% said that within the federal government,
    the judicial branch “is best suited to deciding on abortion’s legality.” >>> Combine those last two questions, and that’s 24% of 44% (about 11%) of
    the country that believes the Supreme Court should be setting abortion
    policy. Only that blue slice in the poll below sides with Roe on the
    constitutional question.

    Carney concludes, “So why do so many people tell pollsters they think
    Roe shouldn’t be overturned? It’s because most people don’t understand
    Roe and don’t understand that overturning it returns the issue to
    lawmakers and the states.”

    And Democrats, the news media and abortion fanatics want to keep as many >>> people confused and furious as possible.

    Sullivan concludes,

    Leftists, if they could only snap out of their disdain for democracy,
    can make a powerful case for moderation on this issue against
    right-extremism. To do that, of course, they will have to back some
    restrictions on abortion in some states — which some seem very reluctant >>> to do — and even allow some diversity of opinion within their own ranks. >>> There are forces aiming to prevent that — forces that Biden could
    confront if he hadn’t long been beaten into learned helplessness. But
    surely someone can take the initiative.

    So let’s stop the hyperventilation and get back to democracy. Persuade
    people, if you can. Get them out to vote. Stop demonizing those you
    disagree with and compromise with them in office, however difficult that >>> may be. What Roe did was kickstart the extreme cultural polarization
    that has defined and blighted the last few decades of American politics. >>> Maybe the end of Roe can mark the beginning of a return to living
    together, and negotiating a way to make that bearable.

    Tragically, abortions are the terrible consequence of

    Mounting legal challenges to pandemic public health rules — and judges’
    increasing willingness to overrule medical experts — threaten to erode
    the influence of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and
    other government health authorities.

    In the last year, four court rulings against the CDC, including one from >>> the Supreme Court, have forced the agency to stop or change its pandemic >>> mitigation orders. Most recently, a Florida district judge ordered a
    national injunction ending the agency’s mask mandate on public transport. >>>

    “Litigation invites litigation invites litigation,” said Wendy Parmet,
    faculty co-director at the Center for Health Policy and Law at
    Northeastern University. It’s a cycle that “creates enormous uncertainty >>> about what CDC could do going forward should the pandemic worsen again,
    or should another pandemic or even a more regional outbreak arise.”


    The high-profile challenges to the CDC sit atop thousands more lawsuits
    against state and local health authorities that have been filed during
    the pandemic, experts say, seeking to end localized social distancing
    and mask orders, vaccine mandates and business closures.

    The constant threat of being dragged into court is having a chilling
    effect on local health officials that may last well beyond the Covid-19
    crisis, leading health commissioners or board of health members to think >>> twice about enacting public safety measures.

    “It’s a tsunami,” says James Hodge, a law professor at Arizona State
    University’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. “Anything that limits
    you as an American from doing something you don’t want to do … It all
    got a challenge.”

    The flood of legal challenges is part of a profound antagonism many in
    the U.S. have felt toward public health officials since the early days
    of the pandemic, when the rapid spread of Covid-19 put government
    authority and America’s fierce defense of individual freedoms on a
    collision course.

    A sign on a door asks people to wear masks in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. >>> CDC strategy on masks could haunt the country
    BY RACHAEL LEVY
    Political meddling in the CDC’s Covid-19 response and the agency’s own
    unforced errors in testing and communication stiffened many Americans’
    resistance to the government’s involvement in their personal health,
    even as nearly one million Americans have died. In addition to lawsuits, >>> bills have been introduced in state legislatures across the nation to
    limit public health authorities’ power, and scores of public health
    officials have left their jobs in frustration.



    Every stage of the crisis has brought a new challenge to public health
    workers.

    In Massachusetts, public health officials fended off a stream of
    lawsuits in the early days of the pandemic, getting in the way of work
    like finding shelters for homeless Covid-positive residents. In Ohio,
    the state legislature passed a bill in 2021 to allow lawmakers to
    override the governor’s health orders or emergency declarations. And in
    Washington, one of the last states to end its indoor mask order in
    March, local public health officials worried about trying to enforce
    future regional orders on their own, if cases rose again in their community.

    “Health authorities need to know that they can’t run amok. Judicial
    review is an important deterrent against overreach and abuse,” says Parmet. >>>
    “On the other hand, you don’t want judicial review to be so threatening, >>> and so omnipresent… that when a health emergency arises, officials are
    paralyzed by fear of litigation, and they’re so worried about what the
    court will do, when their lawyers are saying, ‘You can’t do this and you >>> can’t do that’… Then you get into a situation where lives will be in
    danger.”

    Future authority
    Threats to the CDC’s authority came into focus in April when a federal
    judge in Florida ruled the agency did not have the authority to order a
    national mask mandate on public transportation and issued a nationwide
    injunction against the order.

    The ruling from the judge, a Trump appointee who the American Bar
    Association deemed was “not qualified” when she was nominated for the
    bench, came as national Covid-19 cases were rising, and prompted a
    cascade of private transportation companies to lift their own
    requirements on facial coverings.

    The Department of Justice appealed the ruling in the 11th Circuit Court
    of Appeals, in part to protect the CDC’s authority to issue similar
    orders in the future. On May 3, the mandate ran out anyway, and the CDC
    recommended that people continue to mask up on planes, trains and buses. >>>

    Since then, another federal judge in Florida reached the opposite
    conclusion, saying the CDC was within its power to order the mandate. In >>> Texas, yet another challenge to the defunct requirement is still pending. >>>
    The 11th Circuit has weighed in on the CDC’s pandemic authorities
    before. In July, it upheld a lower Florida court order prohibiting the
    agency from imposing Covid-19 restrictions on cruise ships in the state. >>> The next month, the Supreme Court rejected the CDC’s pandemic-related
    eviction moratorium, ruling the agency did not have the authority to
    impose it.

    Other federal agencies that watch over Americans’ health have also come
    into the courts’ crosshairs. In January, the Supreme Court struck down
    an order by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration that
    mandated employees in businesses with over 100 workers be vaccinated or
    tested, though it upheld the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’
    vaccine mandate for workers in Medicare and Medicaid participating
    facilities. The court is also considering a case that could limit the
    Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate air pollution,
    among other things.

    Many of these decisions fit a worrying pattern, public health experts
    said, in which judges do not appear to be taking scientific evidence or
    expertise on board.

    “Historically, there’s been some level of deference to experts who are
    using their legal authority to save lives,” said Joshua Sharfstein,
    professor of the practice in health policy and management at Johns
    Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But that has been eroding.
    The courts have increasingly not really cared to assess the implications >>> of the decisions for health.”

    At the local level, state and local public health agencies have won most >>> of the challenges to their authority, says Hodge of ASU, who provides
    legal guidance to public health agencies and others through The Network
    for Public Health Law, an expert entity that helps organizations
    navigate laws and regulations.

    But after vaccines were introduced, some courts started to ask
    authorities more questions on why mitigation measures are necessary, he
    said.



    Courts have also intervened over Title 42, the CDC order stopping
    migrants from entering the U.S. immigration system in order to prevent
    the spread of Covid-19. The policy has drawn the ire of judges and
    critics, who have said it is a legitimate public health rule that has
    been politicized in both the Trump and Biden administrations.

    Since it was enacted under Trump in March 2020, public health experts
    say the order is an ineffective way to prevent transmission of the
    virus, and immigration advocates say it violates international
    humanitarian law by turning away asylum seekers fleeing danger at the
    border.

    A U.S. Border Patrol agent instructs immigrant families as they prepare
    to board transport to a processing center after crossing the U.S.-Mexico >>> border.
    WHITE HOUSE

    Biden to comply with forthcoming order to keep Covid border restrictions >>> in place
    BY EUGENE DANIELS AND LAURA BARRÓN-LÓPEZ
    Some courts have been sympathetic with those perspectives. On March 4, a >>> D.C. Circuit Court judge questioned what, if any, public health purpose
    the policy serves at this stage in the pandemic and ruled that the CDC
    did not have the authority to send families back to danger without
    giving them the chance to apply for protection against persecution and
    torture.

    Others have sided with states seeking to keep the order in place as an
    immigration-control measure. Not long after the D.C. Circuit Court
    ruling, the CDC said it would end the order for all migrants on May 23.
    That effort is being challenged in a Louisiana court by states worried
    about the surge in migrants that its end could bring. A federal judge
    issued a temporary restraining order preventing the CDC from phasing out >>> the order before then and could soon seek to stop the administration >>>from ending it altogether.

    “It’s dangerous to start manipulating the public health laws,” says Lee
    Gelernt, an ACLU attorney representing the families in the case in D.C.
    Circuit Court. “At this point, there’s no longer even the pretense that
    Title 42 is needed for public health; it’s being discussed openly as a
    border-control measure.”

    Landscape of ‘anger and vehemence’
    In Washington state, Secretary of Health Umair Shah says this litigious
    atmosphere, and particularly a decision like the Florida injunction
    against the CDC’s travel mask mandate, “has ramifications for public
    health policy across the nation.”

    He says it’s part of a broader landscape of “anger and vehemence”
    against public health officials and public health policies that is
    making it harder for them to do their jobs.


    “I know that those things — everything together — has had an impact on
    people,” said Shah. “It may not have changed necessarily what they’re
    doing, but it may have changed how they’ve gone about it, or how public
    they’ve been, or how careful they’ve been, because nobody wants to have
    that onslaught launched against them.”

    In Massachusetts, having to constantly fend off lawsuit threats was a
    “complete time suck” in the early days of the pandemic, recalls Cheryl
    Sbarra, executive director and senior staff attorney at the
    Massachusetts Association of Health Boards.

    Sbarra, who provides legal guidance to health boards across the state,
    says two years later, the threats have not stopped. Board meetings are
    more contentious. There’s more “bashing.” People wearing masks during
    the latest rise in Covid cases are harassed.

    “It’s not as hot as it was, but there’s still a lingering feeling with
    some people that we violated their rights,” Sbarra said. “And I don’t
    know if that’s ever going to go away.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
