    If you want to die of Covid, that's your choice. Just don't take anyone with you.

    A coronavirus vaccine produced by Germany's CureVac is just 47% effective, the pharmaceutical firm said Wednesday.
    After an interim analysis of the vaccine, the Tübingen-based company released a statement saying: "CVnCoV demonstrated an interim vaccine efficacy of 47% against COVID-19 disease of any severity and did not meet prespecified statistical success criteria."

    Oh dear, I hope he's smart enough to turn down an invite for tea with the russians...


    Today, Thailand’s Food and Drug Administration says Russia’s Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine isn’t approved as crucial data is still missing.
    TFDA Secretary General Dr Paisal Dunkhum says the information, sent last week by KinGen Biotech, the pharmaceutical company representing the vaccine manufacturer, is the same unfinished date that was already sent to the TFDA.

    Geneva: The World Health Organization (WHO) said Wednesday that a new variant of COVID-19, named Lambda, was identified in 29 countries and notably in South America where it is believed to have originated.

    First identified in Peru, the Lambda lineage was classified as a global Variant of Interest on Monday due to an "elevated prevalence" in South America, the WHO said in its weekly update.

    Lambda has been rampant in Peru where 81 percent of COVID-19 cases since April 2021 were associated with this variant, authorities reported.


    In Chile, it was detected in 32 percent of all submitted sequences in the last 60 days, and only outclassed by the Gamma variant which was first identified in Brazil. Other countries such as Argentina and Ecuador have also reported elevated prevalence of the new variant.


    The WHO reported that the Lambda lineage carries mutations that might increase transmissibility or strengthen the virus's resistance to antibodies.


    However, evidence is too limited for the moment, the Geneva-based organization said, and more studies are required to understand better the Lambda variant.

    The Foo Fighters had a concert for vaccinated patrons only, which of course attracted the attention of the whinging antivaxx wankers.

    The baldy orange cunto death toll...

    More than 600,000 people in the United States are known to have died of Covid-19 as of Wednesday, according to data compiled by The New York Times — a once-unthinkable number, 10 times the death toll that President Donald J. Trump once predicted. The milestone comes as the country’s fight against the coronavirus has made big gains but remains unfinished, with millions not yet vaccinated.
    “It’s a tragedy,” said Stephen Morse, a professor of epidemiology at the Columbia University Medical Center. “A lot of that tragedy was avoidable, and it’s still happening.”

    Poor Nepalese.

    Note that the corrupt wankers who have been bribed to organise the purchase of this rubbish vaccine are quite happy to break their own country's laws to trouser some chinky cash.

    Increasingly under pressure to acquire vaccines at the earliest, the government has decided to buy four million doses of the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine. Officials confirmed that a Cabinet meeting on Monday took a decision to that effect as per a proposal moved by the Ministry of Health, but details like price and when the vaccines will arrive were not immediately known.

    “The Cabinet has authorised the vaccine procurement unit of the Ministry of Health to buy four million doses of the vaccine from China,” Minister for Industry, Supplies and Commerce Rajkishwor Yadhav told the Post. “Other issues including price, logistics, transportation will be looked into by the government agencies concerned.”

    At least two government officials said that the vaccines would be bought under a non-disclosure agreement, as proposed by Sinopharm. Nepal’s procurement laws, however, do not allow a non-disclosure agreement.

    Vaccines could play a role in opening up international travel for British holidaymakers, under plans being considered by the UK government.

    Officials are looking at proposals that could allow Britons who have had both coronavirus vaccine doses to avoid having to quarantine when returning from countries on the amber list, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.

    A government spokeswoman confirmed that work has begun to "consider the role of vaccinations" for inbound travel following the continued success of the jab's rollout.

    This could mean the return of holidays to popular summer hotspots such as Spain, Portugal, France and Italy, which are all currently on the UK's amber list.

    People arriving from the limited number of holiday destinations on the green list are not required to self-isolate, while amber arrivals must quarantine at home for 10 days.

    Might be relevant the way things are going in Thailand.

    Can you mix and match two-dose COVID-19 vaccines?

    It’s likely safe and effective, but researchers are still gathering data to be sure.

    The authorized COVID-19 shots around the world are all designed to stimulate your immune system to produce virus-fighting antibodies, though the way they do so varies, noted Dr. Kate O’Brien, director of the World Health Organization’s vaccine unit.


    “Based on the basic principles of how vaccines work, we do think that the mix-and-match regimens are going to work,” she said.


    Scientists at Oxford University in the United Kingdom are testing combinations of the two-dose COVID-19 vaccines made by AstraZeneca, Moderna, Novavax and Pfizer-BioNTech. Smaller trials are also ongoing in Spain and Germany.


    “We really just need to get the evidence in each of these (vaccine) combinations,” O’Brien said.


    So far, limited data suggests an AstraZeneca shot followed by the Pfizer shot is safe and effective. The combination also appears to come with a slightly higher likelihood of temporary side effects like aches and chills.


    That might be because mixing and matching different types of vaccines can often produce a stronger immune response, said Lawrence Young, a virologist at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom.


    In some places, health officials already suggest mixing in select circumstances.


    After the AstraZeneca vaccine was linked to extremely rare blood clots, many European countries including Germany, France and Spain recommended people who got it as a first dose get a Pfizer or Moderna shot as a second dose instead.


    In Britain and Canada, officials say people should aim to get the same vaccine for their second dose if possible. If they got AstraZeneca as their first shot, they’re advised to get another vaccine only if they have a history of blood clots or other conditions that might put them at higher risk of clots.

    Unfortunately for your feeble attempt to equate those with Covid, none of them are transmissible.

    Covid-19 cases are “rising exponentially” across England with the reproduction (R) climbing to as high as 1.44, according to scientists tracking the epidemic.

    The surge in cases is being driven by younger and mostly unvaccinated age groups.

    A study commissioned by the Government found that infections have increased 50% between May 3 and June 7, coinciding with the rise of the Delta
    coronavirus variant which was first detected in India and is now dominant in the UK.


    Data from nearly 110,000 swab tests carried out across England between May 20 and June 7 suggests Covid-19 cases are doubling every 11 days, with the highest prevalence in the North West and 1 in 670 people infected.

    This from today's Guardian and their rolling coverage of global events:


    • More than 350 Indonesian doctors have contracted Covid-19 despite being vaccinated with Sinovac and dozens have been hospitalised, officials said, as concerns rise about the efficacy of some vaccines against more virulent virus strains.

    Hospitalisation rate for COVID-19 vaccine recipients released



    THAILAND: The hospitalisation rate for people injected with the Sinovac and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines is 20-24 per 100,000 administered doses, according to the Department of Disease Control.

    Dr Chawetsan Namwat, director for emergency diseases and health hazards, said today (June 17) that 3.21 million doses of Sinovac vaccine and 1.94 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine had been administered in Thailand so far.


    Of the Sinovac vaccine recipients, 993 had serious undesirable symptoms and were admitted to a hospital, a ratio of 20 per 100,000 administered doses (0.020%).


    Of the AstraZeneca vaccine recipients, 472 had serious undesirable symptoms and were admitted to a hospitals, a rate of 24 per 100,000 administered doses (0.024%).


    Dr Chawetsan said common undesirable symptoms of inpatients who received Sinovac vaccine were dizziness (20%), nausea (15%), headache (12%), vomiting (8%), rash (7%), muscle pain (6%), diarrhea (5%) and itching (4%).


    “The symptoms are common to other vaccines administered,” he said.




    Among admitted recipients of AstraZeneca vaccine, common undesirable symptoms were fever (31%), headache (27%), dizziness (21%), nausea (21%), vomiting (20%), muscle pain (15%), fatigue (13%) and diarrhea (7%).


    Dr Chawetsan also said 68 people had died after receiving COVID-19 vaccines. Experts had considered 13 of the cases to date, and concluded they had nothing to do with the inoculations.


    They died of coincidental events - eight with acute coronary syndrome (sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart), one with Immune Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (a blood disease), one with a pulmonary embolism (lung blood clot), one with purulent meningitis, one with intraabdominal aneurysm and one with a rupture aneurysm in the brain.


    Dr Chawetsan said the COVID-19 vaccines being administered in Thailand were safe.

    Hang on, keep your sleeve rolled up,

    The public is being urged to take part in trials to find out whether a third dose of Covid vaccine could protect against new variants.All seven vaccines the UK has ordered will be tested on working-age people and over-75s as part of a randomised trial.Data on side-effects and immune responses will be gathered. The findings will help vaccine advisers decide if re-vaccinating some people in the autumn is necessary.More than 20 million people have been fully vaccinated - with two doses of a Covid vaccine - since the UK's vaccination programme started, but it's still not clear how long protection lasts.
    Offering some groups a third dose to boost protection from coronavirus ahead of winter has been suggested - but not confirmed.

    Don't you think Harry that you are getting a bit carried away with all your good west/ bad Russia and China business.

    This isn't the Super Bowl or some other sporting event.

    Give it a rest man. Please.

    Nepal is in a crisis and it would seem that the easiest thing they can lay their hands on is the Chinese jab. You'll probably concede that it is better than nothing.
    Only the rich nations can be selective about the jab they choose. Surely you've figured that out.

    While in New Zealand reports vary - roughly 96% of people are still NOT vaccinated. Not even with one shot.

    Of course NZ is a particular circumstance. How many international points of entry do you have?

    Still with all these weird variants I think you folks are taking a chance.

    Good luck.

    Several, but as islands at the arse-end of the world there's isn't a lot of through traffic - relatively covid-free out of luck, not design, but there are cases daily caught at the airports.

    The real point is that the government is finally realising that opening the borders has become a necessity to preserve the economy after a year of self-reliance and the government printing money and borrowing like there's no tomorrow. What an ideal opportunity to vaccinate the population and lessen any potential impact by overseas visitors . . . Travel bubble with Australia, Rarotonga/Cook Islands etc...

    But their roll-out has been widely accepted as being flawed to a great extent with a lot of umming and aahing about when the vaccinations will start in earnest. Over one year to plan and it's shit.

    Plus, it was six degrees with fog rolling in off the sea this morning - urgh.

    1. Sinopharm was described to me yesterday by a health care professional with access to the data as "might as well be water".

    2. I actually highlighted the bit about how officials involved in the purchase want to hide the deal, despite it being illegal to do so.

    3. I don't actually give a fuck what you think, you boring twat.

    "Dr Chawetsan said the COVID-19 vaccines being administered in Thailand were safe." Apparently not for the 68 mentioned in the same article who died. Would be nice to see a comparison of Sinocrap and AZ from another country...preferably one also using Fizer, J&J and Moderna to get an overview of the problems being experienced.
