Experts condemn ‘phenomenal failure of policy and practice’ in handling of pandemic

Wed 13 Jan 2021 16.17 GMT

More than 100,000 people have died from coronavirus in the UK since the disease first appeared in the country almost a year ago, in what public health experts have said is a sign of “phenomenal failure of policy and practice”.

Government figures on Wednesday showed a record daily reported 1,564 new fatalities, bringing the total to 101,160.

Almost one in 660 people in the UK have died from Covid or Covid-related causes so far during the pandemic. The UK now has one of the worst Covid mortality rates in the world, at 151 per 100,000 people, ahead of the US, Spain and Mexico where there are 116, 113 and 108 deaths per 100,000 people respectively.

New mutant Covid strain from Brazil is ‘concerning’, Boris says


And now there is a new Brazilian strain. Not much info on it yet, but this thing has always been two steps ahead of the powers that be.

If any one of these mutations is, or becomes, vaccine resistant then...[insert your own prophesies of doom here]
The prime minister has said a new mutant strain of coronavirus originating in Brazil is ‘concerning’. Former Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt quizzed him at a session of the Liaison Committee, saying that yesterday NERVTAG talked about a new strain of the virus which has already escaped to Japan. Mr Johnson responded: ‘We are concerned about the new Brazilian variant.’ He continued: ‘We already have tough measures as you know to protect this country from new infections coming from abroad. ‘We’re taking steps to do that in respect of the Brazilian variant. He said there remained many questions about the variant, including whether it would be resistant to the vaccines.

It has already been detected in Japan.

I found this interesting:

I have had Pneumonia and drs figure i lost 20% of my breathing capacity
What this means is i find it hard to finish long sentences, and no way can i cycle with a mask on..

The photo on the left are healthy lungs. You can see all the colorful blood vessels. The center pic is someone that had covid and recovered, you can see less blood vessels than pre-covid. We don’t know if they will come back. The right are lungs of someone who passed away from covid.

Image

The left is a picture of a normal, healthy, heart. The right is picture is what happens to the blood vessels from COVID. In simple terms, the splintering of the blood vessels in the right picture is what makes oxygenation so difficult.

Ice cream tests positive for coronavirus in China
Contamination ‘probably a one-off’ and no cause for panic, virologist says
Sam Hancock
10 hours ago

Coronavirus has been detected on samples of ice cream in north China, prompting authorities to seize thousands of potentially contaminated products.

People thought to have come into contact with the batches, produced by Tianjin Daqiaodao Food Company, are now being traced by authorities in the the northern Tianjin municipality.

All of Tianjin Daqiaodao’s products have also been sealed and contained after the company sent three samples to the municipal centre for disease control this week – and all tested positive for Covid.

Epidemiological investigations conducted so far indicate the company produced the batch of ice cream using raw materials, including milk powder imported from New Zealand and whey powder imported from Ukraine.

Tianjin Daqiaodao also confirmed that as of 2pm on Thursday, its 1,662 employees were placed in quarantine and put through nucleic acid testing. Of them, 700 have already tested negative for Covid while results for the remaining 962 employees remain to be confirmed.

Dr Stephen Griffin, a virologist based at the University of Leeds, said the incident should not generate “panic” and that it was “probably a one-off” which “has likely come from a person”.

Fareed Zakaria gives us his views in

Image

“There are decades when nothing happens and weeks when decades happen.” – Vladimir Lenin
That quote is highlighted in a new book by best-selling author Fareed Zakaria. In “Ten Lessons for a Post- Pandemic World”, Mr. Zakaria helps readers to understand the nature of a world that emerges after the pandemic: the political, social, technological, and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. He does this by focusing on ten lessons:

Buckle up
What Matters Is Not the Quantity of Government but the Quality
Markets Are Not Enough
People Should Listen to the Experts—and Experts Should Listen to the People
Life is digital
Aristotle Was Right—We Are Social Animals
Inequality will get worse
Globalization is not dead
The world is becoming bipolar
Sometimes the Greatest Realists Are the Idealists

Ultra-Orthodox Sect Hosts Another Superspreader Wedding in Brooklyn

While several hundredthousand americans already died because of Covid 19 some Religous Groups aparently are totally IMMUNE. As long as these folks stay close to each other i would support many more of such gatherings. It shows passion ! The social distancing rules don't apply to them, only GOD who is currently on holiday can tell them.

Brazil’s collapsing health service, new COVID variant, raise Indigenous risk
by Sue Branford and Thais Borges on 20 January 2021

[BRAZIL] The city of Manaus made world headlines last April when a first wave of the coronavirus swept through the city. Now that city, and the entire state of Amazonas, is being swept by a second wave of the pandemic, which is shaping up to be far worse than the first.
Indigenous people are especially vulnerable, with their mortality rate from COVID-19 at least 16% higher than the Brazilian average. Now, São Gabriel da Cachoeira, located 852 kilometers (529 miles) from Manaus, near the Colombia-Venezuela frontier, is being heavily impacted.
São Gabriel has a large Indigenous population, and while it escaped the worst of the first wave of the pandemic, its meagre health system resources are now being overwhelmed. The state of Amazonas lacks sufficient hospital beds, its ICUs are overrun, and medical facilities lack sufficient oxygen.
Of extreme concern is a new Brazilian coronavirus variant called P.1, which recently appeared in Amazonas state. While more research is needed, one possibility is that P.I. is bypassing the human immune response triggered by the initial coronavirus lineage that ravaged Manaus last year. This means people could be reinfected.

“Health professionals are physically and psychologically exhausted, and patients from Manaus and the interior of Amazonas state are queuing for beds. In a word, we are going through a crisis of unprecedented dimensions. Perhaps we are witnessing one of the most painful situations in the history of this pandemic.”

These dire words were reported by phone on 14 January to Mongabay by researcher Jesem Orellana, from the Amazonia branch of the Brazilian Health Ministry’s Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (FIOCRUZ), one of Latin America’s leading health institutions.

Bluntly put, the nation’s health care system is collapsing in Manaus, as it, and the rest of Amazonas state, are swept by a second horrific wave of the pandemic— maybe exacerbated by a new COVID-19 variant recently detected in the South American nation.
