Christopher Chope MP gives detailed figures for injuries and deaths caused by Covid-19 vaccines to the House of Commons in the UK Houses of Parliament. “There’s a lot more damage being done to our citizens as a result of Covid-19 vaccinations than in any other vaccination program in history”
ITV journalist Robert Peston is getting a roasting on social media today for pointing out the fully vaccinated over-40’s are far more likely to become infected with Covid-19 than unvaccinated over-40’s .
Here, we demonstrate that the Mu variant is highly resistant to sera from COVID-19 convalescents and BNT162b2-vaccinated individuals. Direct comparison of different SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins revealed that Mu spike is more resistant to serum-mediated neutralization than all other currently recognized variants of interest (VOI) and concern (VOC). This includes the Beta variant (B.1.351) that has been suggested to represent the most resistant variant to convalescent and vaccinated sera to date.
“I have determined that to promote the health and safety of the Federal workforce and the efficiency of the civil service, it is necessary to require COVID-19 vaccination for all Federal employees, subject to such exceptions as required by law.” Joe Biden, 9th September 2021
Zoo Atlanta is treating 13 western lowland gorillas who have tested positive for COVID-19. The gorillas were tested after they demonstrated mild coughing, runny noses and loss of appetite. Atlanta’s animal handlers took faecal samples and nasal and oral swabs from the gorillas and sent the samples to the Athens Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at the University of Georgia, which returned a presumptive positive result. Atlanta is waiting for confirmation from the National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Ames, Iowa, which also received samples.
The World Health Organization has thrown in the towel and surrendered to Covid. The WHO have finally realised that Covid-19 vaccines aren’t going to save our asses, and they are now recommending that governments around the world learn to live with the virus. Yes, that’ll be the same virus that has already killed millions, disabled tens of millions, and infected hundreds of millions. Sars-CoV-2 is apparently something we can learn to live with though, just like the ebola virus, or polio, or smallpox, or the bubonic plague.
A total of 257 cardiac adverse event (CAE) were identified. Rates per million following dose 2 among males were 162.2 (ages 12-15) and 94.0 (ages 16-17); among females, rates were 13.0 and 13.4 per million, respectively.
Public Health England have finally released some detailed vaccine breakthrough data for England this week. The data covers the period 9th August to 5th September 2021, some 8 months after the vaccination campaigns first began.
This week’s update from Washington State showing vaccine breakthrough cases and which Sars-CoV-2 variant is causing them up to 8th September 2021. The Delta variant, which now accounts for 72% of all vaccine breakthrough cases in the state, has posted another large increase this week. 423 new vaccine breakthrough cases are listed for Delta, but that number is actually slightly down on last week’s figure of 443 cases.
Of the 9,253 breakthrough infections, 375 people have been admitted to hospital within 14 days of a positive PCR test for Covid-19. 57 deaths have been recorded within 30 days of a breakthrough infection detected via PCR test. SSI’s data also gives the percentage of breakthrough infections amongst all infections during the same period as 4.9 percent, but somewhat higher at 20% for the month of August alone.
For the first time during the pandemic, children now account for more than one quarter of new weekly US COVID-19 cases, according to the latest report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Nearly 252,000 child COVID-19 cases were reported for the week ending Sep 2, the largest number recorded for children during the pandemic, according to the report. . Children accounted for 26.8% of reported weekly US cases. The AAP said this was the largest number of child cases in a week since the pandemic began.
The new Mu variant, B.1.621, detected for the first time in Colombia, surpasses Lambda and Delta and is already ranked as the second with the highest circulation in Chile. According to the latest epidemiological report from the Public Health Institute (ISP), although Gamma continues to be the most frequent variant with 41%, of the sequenced samples, Mu, with 29%, surpassed Delta (18%) and Lambda (11 %).
“One in eight coronavirus infections last week, 12.5 percent, was contracted at an education or childcare facility. That is based on all coronavirus cases in which the GGDs managed to trace the suspected source of infection. The number of infections rose sharply among children of primary school age. In Utrecht, where children have completed their first week of school after the summer holidays, ten to fifteen school groups are being sent home every day because of positive tests, said a spokesperson for the GGD.”
There have been 13,166 vaccine breakthrough cases identified in Oregon.
