New variants everywhere you look... Geesh

This time in Chinese pigs... swine fever


China’s New Outbreaks of Pig Diseases Spark Doubts Over Recovery

The outbreaks have included new variants of swine fever that have proved less easy to detect and harder to control.

Hmmm... what do we have here, the Ecuador variant? There is alarm in one of the provinces of Ecuador where there is more than 3,000 children currently infected with the virus.

 Quoting: CoronaCoaster


I wonder how many in hospital?

Any more news out there - is it a new variant?

They were reporting cases of the UK variant.

The government will carry out a review into the idea of Covid status certificates or vaccine passports.

Speaking on a visit to a London school, he said there were "deep and complex and ethical issues" to consider.

Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove will lead the review.

Earlier Health Secretary Matt Hancock said everyone "has to play their part" in leaving coronavirus rules.

Mr Johnson said the idea of vaccine certificates were a "novelty" for this country, saying that they had never before thought in terms of having to show something to go to a pub or the theatre.

In turn this meant that there were "ethical issues about what the role is for government in mandating… or banning people from doing such a thing.

"We can't be discriminatory against people who can't have the vaccine, there might be a medical reason, or some people may genuinely refuse to have one - I think that's a mistake. "

But the prime minister said there was time to consider the issue at the same time as the vaccine rollout continued.

If experimental drug still lets people carry the virus but prevents serious disease I really don’t see the point in stopping a few people going into certain venues!

No news on a new variant there for now, might take a few days to find out if it is a new one as their variant surveilance probably isn't at a high level in that country.

 Quoting: ParamedicUK



Okay, thanks! I love Boris, but somebody should give him a comb. Lol. :)
 Quoting: Serenity Now


At the end of the video there is an ironic reference to him being the world's best dad but not knowing how many children he has. Lol.

I thought to just randomly mention that because I remember you once said that info about Boris and his kids was something you remember APY mentioning in the old thread that you thought was funny. =P
 Quoting: CoronaCoaster



LOL, yes! He had me in tears over that. AT LEAST SIX! AT LEAST! A world leader who doesn't know how many children he has!

APY was apoplectic about it, which made it all the more hilarious. Thanks for the reminder!

 Quoting: ParamedicUK


You're right, the vaccines might help with disease severity but they don't protect the person from infection if they are exposed to a sufficient amount of virus.

As for the transmission of the virus, according to preliminary info (so take with a pinch of salt) the vaccines *might* help to reduce the transmission rate of the virus. They think people who have had the vax have reduced viral loads therefore making them less contagious to others by shedding fewer virus particles.

So I guess Gov's argument would be that yes it's probably inevitible you're going to be having people spread the virus in venues but taking the vax *might* make you less likely to spread the virus to others thereby helping keep the R rate lower.

The way I see it, UK Gov will wait a while to see if the R rate reduces on its own, if it doesn't then they will make vaccine passports mandatory for venues, shops, businesses etc. It would take the form as a type of ID card you carry everywhere with you and scan at venues. Like I said the other day people like Blair etc would love this because they were pushing for ID cards years ago, but they never got it because of pushback from civil liberties groups. But of course you wouldn't need these vaccine passports at all if a zero-covid strategy was implemented, but the UK Gov has already resigned themselves to not pursue that policy.

India not blaming new variants for increase in cases.

Article hints that the reason for the increase could be due to people who have stopped wearing masks, stopped social distancing.

A few more cases in the community were detected in NZ.

They've always managed to get case counts back to zero following small outbreaks in the past. Hoping they can do so again this time.

Government Minister in Slovakia suggested lifting restrictions on Churches... not because cases have fallen but quite the opposite... Slovakia is taking a nasty hit from the b117 variant right now and they want people to go to Churches to ask God for a miracle to stop the Covid nightmare!

Finland cases are at the highest yet.

They always coped very well with older variants but they are finding the new variants more of a challenge.

Shit's getting bad in Czech Republic. They just overtook the UK to be the #1 country in the world for most recorded cases per capita during any 14-day period.



OUTBREAK - The epidemic situation escalates in the Czech Republic, with a record number of new infections. Faced with overwhelmed hospitals, the government intends to seek help from Germany.

This Tuesday, the country recorded more than 11,200 new cases of Covid-19 in 24 hours, 1,300 patients in intensive care, including 660 on ventilators and "a greater number" in intensive care, said at a press conference the vice - Minister of Health, Vladimir Cerny.

The government, which succeeded in controlling the spread of the virus during its first wave in the spring, has since faced recurrent times of the Covid epidemic. "We are on the verge of running out of intensive care capacity," Deputy Health Minister Vladimir Cerny told reporters, primarily deploring the lack of qualified personnel. "There is no way we can maintain current health care standards, there are slowdowns and delays in non-Covid care. The system as a whole is close to reaching its limits," he said. added.

Study says the California variant, which affected LA badly recently, has a cluster of mutations which puts it on a par with other troubling variants such as the UK, SA and Brazil variants.

They believe the California variant is not only more transmissible but has some immune escape and is more deadly too.
