    Russia Ignores Requests to Share Controversial Coronavirus Vaccine Data

    Russian scientists have not shared the data behind controversial clinical trial results into a coronavirus vaccine published in leading medical journal The Lancet a month ago, researchers who requested the information told The Moscow Times.


    A group of 37 scientists from 12 countries have now signed an open letter questioning the published results into Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine, citing apparent duplications of data concerning antibody responses among participants given different formulations of the vaccine. They say such duplication is “highly unlikely” and raised the possibility of data manipulation.


    Russia’s state research center responsible for developing the vaccine, the Gamaleya Institute, has disputed the claims. And in a reply published Sept. 21 by the Lancet, the Institute said it would share the raw data if other researchers and scientists sent them a formal request. The original publication only included results in diagram form.


    But the Gamaleya Institute has ignored multiple public calls and at least two official proposals requesting access to the data, according to the group of researchers who first raised concerns.

    India's new paper Covid-19 test could be a game changer

    A team of scientists in India has developed an inexpensive paper-based test for coronavirus that could give fast results similar to a pregnancy test. The BBC's Soutik Biswas and Krutika Pathi unpack how it works.


    The test, named after a famous Indian fictional detective, is based on a gene-editing technology called Crispr. Scientists estimate that the kit - called Feluda - would return results in under an hour and cost 500 rupees (about $6.75; £5.25).


    Feluda will be made by a leading Indian conglomerate, Tata, and could be the world's first paper-based Covid-19 test available in the market.
    "This is a simple, precise, reliable, scalable and frugal test," Professor K Vijay Raghavan, principal scientific adviser to the Indian government, told the BBC.


    Researchers at the Delhi-based CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB), where Feluda was developed, as well as private labs, tried out the test on samples from about 2,000 patients, including ones who had already tested positive for the coronavirus.


    They found that the new test had 96% sensitivity and 98% specificity. The accuracy of a test is based on these two proportions. A test that's highly sensitive will detect almost everyone who has the disease; and a test that has high-specificity will correctly rule out almost everyone who doesn't have the disease.


    The first ensures not too many false negative results; and the second not too many false positives. India's drug regulator has cleared the test for commercial use.


    With more than six million confirmed infections, India has the world's second-highest Covid-19 caseload. More than 100,000 people in the country have died of the disease so far.


    After a slow start, India is now testing a million samples a day in more than 1,200 laboratories across the country. It is using two tests.

    Its grim oop norf...


    Manchester is the country's coronavirus hotspot as new data shows it has the highest infection rate of any area in England.

    Figures released by Public Health England show the 7-day rate in Manchester has reached 495.6 cases per 100,000 population for the week ending on October 1.


    The new high came as infection rates in every Greater Manchester borough were revised upwards after a government computer glitch meant thousands of positive test results were missed.

    Public Health England said nearly 16,000 cases - which had not been reported over the previous ten days - had been added to the official data over the weekend.

    Hi CCC,
    It’s with great sadness that we are getting in touch to let you know that all Cineworld cinemas across the UK and Ireland will be temporarily closed from Friday (October 9) until further notice.

    This is not a decision we made lightly. We did everything in our power to support safe and sustainable re-openings of our cinemas and we are so very grateful for our employees who implemented the new protocols which resulted in lots of positive feedback from customers who visited our cinemas and felt safe. We were very proud of the fact that cinemas were open for 2 months and there was not one COVID case resulting from visiting the cinema. We cannot underscore enough how difficult this decision was.

    As we have done to date, we will do everything we can to save livelihoods and the company – this is an extremely delicate and tricky balance. We continue to work with the Cinema Association, to ensure we are lobbying government to support our employees and the industry which has so much cultural significance.

    We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will communicate our plans to resume operations once film studios are able to bring their pipeline of major movie releases back to the big screen. We can assure you that once a line-up of movie releases is confirmed, we will be ready to re-open our cinemas, as we did in July, with the same safety levels you have already seen while at the same time keeping the great experience that you are used to getting from us.

    A big thank you goes to you, our movie-loving customers; your health and wellbeing has always been our priority during this difficult time and we look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible to enjoy a full slate of films.

    As our cinemas close, online account management on your My Cineworld account will be temporarily disabled for security purposes from Friday (9 October). This service will be available again when our cinemas reopen. We’ll email you when we’re up and running again and will extend any My Cineworld Plus accounts retrospectively for time we were closed.

    If you have any questions, please take a look at our
    Frequently Asked Questions here.

    We will continue to keep in touch via email about the status of out cinemas, and you can receive updates on the Cineworld mobile app, online at
    cineworld.com and our national social channels on Twitter and Facebook, as well as via your local Cineworld’s Facebook page.

    We sincerely wish good health for you and your families during these uncertain times.

    The Cineworld Team

    Twice as many people die in the USA from Covid19 than died on 9-11. That is EVERY WEEK and people and Donald Trump accept it. The death rate of the 7.49 million people in the USA that have contracted it is 2.8%. So..... About 3 people die for each 100 new cases. The prevalence of the virus seems to be everywhere now so the next few months could be ugly.

    Shit's getting real. At this rate the Krankie will be declaring a state of calamity.

    All pubs and restaurants across central Scotland are to be closed under new measures aimed at tackling a surge in coronavirus cases.
    The new rules will apply to licensed premises across the central belt, including Glasgow and Edinburgh.
    Pubs and restaurants will be able to open in other parts of Scotland - but can only serve alcohol outdoors.
    The new rules, which will be in force from 18:00 on Friday until 25 October, apply to about 3.4 million people.

    Another dumb fucking wanker.

    When an 80-year-old man at a bar near Buffalo, N.Y., noticed a fellow customer not wearing a face mask, he confronted him. The customer responded by swiftly pushing him to the ground, the police said. Five days later, the man was dead.
    On Monday, the customer, Donald Lewinski, 65, of West Seneca, N.Y., was arrested and charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death of the 80-year-old, Rocco Sapienza. The case is believed to be one of the first of its kind in New York State.
    Mr. Lewinski pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in court in Erie County. The charge carries up to four years in prison.

    Guess who's still trying to cover up their crimes?

    Yes, the chinkies have not approved the WHO list of experts that are supposed to carry out the "transparent" investigation.

    Presumably they are doing all the background work of how they can blackmail or bribe each one into giving them (excuse the pun) a clean bill of health.

    Coronavirus: Health experts join global anti-lockdown movement

    "Thousands of scientists and health experts have joined a global movement warning of "grave concerns" about Covid-19 lockdown policies.

    Nearly 6,000 experts, including dozens from the UK, say the approach is having a devastating impact on physical and mental health as well as society.

    They are calling for protection to be focused on the vulnerable, while healthy people get on with their lives."

    It seems the push to change the current strategies is gaining momentum. I wonder when governments will be swayed by these diferent views.

    The first lockdown wasn't too bad because of the dry, warm weather.
    I fear the winter lockdown in the UK will be disastrous for many in the UK.

    There appear to be two schools of thought:

    One that thinks you can isolate the vulnerable and let it rip through the rest until you hit herd immunity.

    But another, more cautious voice that says you cannot easily identify the vulnerable.

    Many people of all ages have succumbed to this virus without pre-existing conditions.

    It's a tough one.

    A few work chums have caught it and recovered to different degrees.

    A full class was sent home from my childrens school yesterday because the teacher had tested positive.
