Following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak - News and Discussion

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Nicely made video explaining exactly why you can’t compare efficacy ratings between different trials, and also why efficacy ratings aren’t even the most useful metric.

The army boys got the first batches of vaccine, which was SinoPharm. Plus lots of government people, with the notable exception of HE, who got the AZ one because he is over 60.

Foe some reason the SinpPharm was only for the -60, which begs the question, what is the point of that? It's the 60+ age range that are most at risk (in any normal country)

Spare a thought for Brazil which is doing it really tough..

Worst may lie ahead for Brazil, source of a quarter of world’s daily COVID deaths

Rio De Janeiro: Brazil currently accounts for one-quarter of the entire world’s daily COVID-19 deaths, far more than any other single nation, and health experts are warning that the nation is on the verge of even greater calamity.

The nation’s seven-day average of 2400 deaths stands to reach to 3000 within weeks, six experts said. That’s nearly the worst level seen by the US, though Brazil has two-thirds its population. Spikes of daily deaths could soon hit 4000; on Friday (Brazil time) there were 3650. On Saturday there were 3438 deaths, the Health Ministry said.

Having glimpsed the abyss, there is growing recognition shutdowns are no longer avoidable – not just among experts, but also many mayors and governors. Restrictions on activity they implemented last year were half-hearted and consistently sabotaged by President Jair Bolsonaro, who sought to stave off economic doom. He remains unconvinced of any need for clampdown, which leaves local leaders pursuing a patchwork of measures to prevent the death toll from spiralling further.

It may be too late, with a more contagious variant rampaging across Brazil. For the first time, new daily cases topped 100,000 on March 25, with many more uncounted. Miguel Nicolelis, professor of Neurobiology at Duke University who advised several Brazilian governors and mayors on pandemic control, anticipates the total death toll reaching 500,000 by July and exceeding that of the US by year-end.

The virus’s spread has been turbocharged by the more contagious P.1 variant that has become cause for concern beyond Brazil’s borders, not just in South America. It has already been identified in the US, this week in New York. Dr Anthony Fauci, the top US infectious disease expert, said on Wednesday that his team will be meeting with Brazilian authorities and are “quite concerned” about the situation in Brazil.

The US has seen its death toll plunge since late January amid a massive vaccine rollout, and its seven-day average has dipped below 1000. By contrast, Brazil’s vaccine rollout has been strained, at best. The government bet big on a single vaccine provider, AstraZeneca, while for months rejecting offers to purchase others. Only after delivery delays from AstraZeneca jeopardised rollout did Brazil’s health ministry begin buying — but too late for most deliveries to arrive in the first half of this year.

More easily done in Cambodia than in Texas.

Missus has found the sunshine here much more oppressive and the humidity much worse, and stays indoors most of the time. Only bearable to go outside near twilight. Mostly no open air anything in the western world.

Cold showers are out of the question with houses buttoned up on aircon. She’s gotten ‘Buffalo skin’ from taking hot showers.

On the plus side, she’s gotten a lot darker inside the house. Lack of whitening cream in every skin care product probably helps, too.

Please be safe everyone! And get a vaccine when possible!

We’ve taken to double masking when going out anywhere. One KN95 with a regular procedural face mask on top.

N95 made from Honeywell is very hard to get.

That doesn't sound plausible. She must be sneaking out while you are on your siesta. 8)

Dear expats and Khmer citizens in Cambodia,

I registered to get the free covid vaccination and sent this to all my friends in Phnom Penh City, Kingdom of Cambodia.
Maybe your friends would appreciate this information as well:

This is the link to the registration form for Covid vaccination. It is only available in Khmer language.
Foreigners need a Cambodian to help them fill in the form. Have your passport number, home address, and phone number ready when you register.
Please forward this message to all your family members and friends in Cambodia (Kamputchea)
so they can register and receive the vaccine as soon as possible.

The Covid vaccine is available free of charge to all residents of Cambodia, citizens and foreign residents alike.

Get vaccinated ASAP, as soon as possible !
When enough people have been vaccinated, Cambodia will reach herd immunity and we can all throw away our masks and enjoy life like it was before the pandemic again.

Thank you and
ORKUHN
