This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

Pfizer and BioNTech are planning to seek FDA approval for their COVID-19 vaccine in children aged five to 11 'in the coming weeks'

The stipulation is that the benefits of vaccines for children must outweigh risks of covid19 and we know there is no risk to children, who have not sickened or been hospitalized throughout the so-called pandemic. It can’t be justified on health grounds, period.  So, they proposed the “greater good” scenario, to “protect others” which they know does not meet the criteria either and is illegal. Now Whitty, clutching at straws, claims it is for their “mental health” but not all children have issues with their mental health, even after the psychological abuse inflicted by lockdowns. Neither does the vaccine improve overall well-being, it is supposed to prevent a disease. So, that won’t fly either.

The first stage of grief is always denial, and my goodness are the jabbed in denial today.

 

What a lot of venom I’ve had from those whom I usually have a cordial back and forth with.

 

They seem to be spooked by the Government now blatantly going against the science.

Well in Austria they announced that unvaxxed have to wear masks in shops whilst the vaxxed can go without. 

 

Not sure if it's to 'show the unvaxxed how life can be' or show the vaxxed who the enemy are, maybe a bit of both.

NHS document 60mg of Midazolam. For context, in 2014 in USA, Dennis McGuire was executed by a lethal injection, with just 10mg of Midazolam, followed by 30mg of Hydromorphone

 

I wonder what is the percentage of a healthy person surviving from this dosage? That's 6x of a lethal injection. 😅

India fighting to contain Nipah, a virus deadlier than COVID-19

By 
September 7, 2021 

A 12-year-old boy has died in India of Nipah, a rare virus that is far deadlier than COVID-19 — and one that health officials have long feared could start a global pandemic.

The unidentified boy died Sunday at a hospital in Kerala, the southern state already battling the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the hard-hit country, officials there said.

He had already visited two other hospitals before his death, putting him in contact with potentially hundreds of people — with up to 11 showing potential symptoms, NDTV reported.

Previous outbreaks of Nipah, or NiV, showed an estimated fatality rate of between 40% and 75%, according to the World Health Organization, making it far more deadly than the coronavirus.

“The virus has been shown to spread from person-to-person in these outbreaks, raising concerns about the potential for NiV to cause a global pandemic,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said.

More than 100 possible contacts of the boy have already been forced to isolate, with 48 of them being monitored in a hospital in Kerala.

Officials will also be carrying out door-to-door surveillance and identifying secondary contacts.

Health officials are urgently testing as many contacts as possible, with samples from the boy’s primary contacts — his family and health care workers — coming back negative.

“That these eight immediate contacts tested negative is a great relief,” said the state health minister, Veena George.

Nipah virus was first discovered in Malaysia and Singapore in 1999 — an outbreak of nearly 300 human cases, with more than 100 deaths, the CDC noted. More than 1 million pigs were killed to help control the outbreak, causing a “substantial economic impact.”

Complicating its detection, key symptoms are similar to those of COVID-19, including fever, cough, sore throat and difficulty breathing, the CDC noted.

The infected often also suffer encephalitis, or swelling of the brain — and if they survive, often suffer persistent convulsions and even personality changes. The contagion can remain dormant in sufferers — who may get sick and possibly die from it “months and even years after exposure,” the CDC warned.

There is no vaccine, and the only treatment is supportive care to control complications and keep patients comfortable.

Kerala dealt with a previous outbreak of Nipah in 2018, when more than a dozen people died.

This time around, the concern is compounded by the fact that the state is already struggling to contain COVID-19.

Kerala on Monday registered nearly 20,000 COVID-19 infections — the vast majority of India’s daily total of 31,222.

Nipah, meanwhile, can be “challenging” to detect “due to the non-specific early symptoms of the illness,” even though “early detection and diagnosis are critical to increase chances of survival ” and “to prevent transmission to other people,” the CDC has said.

India Today warned its readers, “The nature of Nipah virus infection is such that if the outbreak spirals out of control, it could pose a bigger threat to public health than the coronavirus pandemic.”

Was in sainsburys a while ago, seems more masks today and even more on the streets.

I don't  think many have wised up that hasn't or wasn't already so inclined.

The Indians where I buy my baccy have stopped wearing them though and they were full on mask/windscreen 9 months ago

Weird isn't it. I suspect you two are down south where the fairies come from. Up narth where I'm at, I am seeing far more non mask wearers than maskers. Must be a southern fairy thing. 😎👍
