    Around 95% of additional masks production and pules oxymeters production comes from China, not local manufacturers. Best countries have it at 80/20, worst at 99/1.

  • Mordor medicine

    Looking at the medical communities and prescription I must tell that we have huge problem. Most medics turned into some kind of corporate drones who do not think about that they are doing, do not know how drugs work and if things they are doing have any, even remote logic.

    And worse of all, as Zelenko properly said, it is main goal to work on very early stages, instead all the present rules wait until people have 39 degrees temperature and >20% lungs damage (mostly 50 and up), oxygen problems. And they try to pull them all into overcrowded hospitals, where they get new viral loads and huge amount of bacteria that went though nice antibiotics selection (read - almost incurable pneumonias).

    Such approach also block any access to medicine for all other people. But they like it, as going into normality means 3x reduction of their salary now. This is the consequence of idiotic monetary stimulation.

  • Need new infrastructure for Pfizer vaccine, costly one

    When Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE’s Covid-19 vaccine rolls off production lines, Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group Co. will be waiting to distribute it through a complex and costly system of deep-freeze airport warehouses, refrigerated vehicles and inoculation points across China.

    After they reach vaccination centers, the shots must be thawed from -70 degrees celsius and injected within five days, if not they go bad.

    Then the herculean journey from warehouse freezer to rolled-up sleeve must be undertaken all over again -- to deliver the second booster shot a month later.

  • Bad news

    With infections, hospitalizations and deaths linked to Covid-19 rising exponentially, hospitals in Milan are running out of beds even after having converted wards and suspended nonurgent procedures. Ambulances have been forced to wait for hours to drop off patients at hospitals where Covid-19 patients are sometimes kept on gurneys in crowded corridors.

    On Friday, the government sealed off Milan and the surrounding Lombardy region, along with three of Italy’s other 20 regions. In these so-called red zones, freedom of movement is severely curtailed, most stores are shut, cafes and restaurants can sell only takeout, and children from the second year of middle school onward have reverted to remote learning. The government said it would assess the situation in two weeks.

    A Milan crematory said it couldn’t keep up with the number of deaths and stopped accepting for cremation the bodies of nonresidents who die in the city. A temporary hospital set up in April at Milan’s trade-fair center has reopened.

  • More on vaccines

    On Monday, Pfizer shares soared 16% following a bullish statement on the company's experimental COVID-19 vaccine showed 90% effectiveness in preliminary results. Then on Tuesday, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla sold 62% of his stock.

    Something tells me that they utterly lied.

  • Zhong Nanshan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Sciences, a leading specialist in respiratory diseases, said that achieving herd immunity from COVID-19 is unrealistic and anti-scientific.

    "Natural immunity is not realistic, anti-scientific and inhuman, therefore mass vaccination is required to achieve herd immunity," the scientist said.

    Zhong Nanshan is guy behind extremely fast change in Chinese response and man behind "we should not have virus on our land instead of endless fight and lockdowns" approach.

  • "we thought it was just a respiratory virus...we were wrong"

  • All evidence shows that it’s not only a respiratory virus and it has been discussed here several times. Is hits where it hits and there it begins to fuck all it’s surroundings. It’s the way it behaves that medicine doesn’t allow to understand. More creativity they need to think out of the box and try to understand what you evidently don’t as scientists.

    But the article itself is very intriguing. They talk lots of data from lots of places, but don’t show any real conclusions, seems to be more of an observation.

  • Austria is going to a full lockdown from November 17 to December 6 due to the coronavirus, Chancellor of the Republic Sebastian Kurz said on Saturday.

    "For the next two half weeks, starting next Tuesday through Sunday, December 6, inclusive, there will be a second lockdown, like in the spring," Kurz told reporters.

    He explained that from November 17, almost all trade will be closed, except for shops of daily necessity, post office, banks and pharmacies, and cosmetic enterprises (hairdressing salons, beauty salons, nail service) will be closed. Schools are switching to distance learning, restrictions on leaving home without a good reason will operate around the clock, the chancellor said.

    The Chancellor also announced the need to transfer employees to remote work wherever possible.

  • Right now most research on COVID is carefully guided by proper grants, sponsorship, direct personal talks and equipment distribution and access control.

    Any error in this and it can end up with almost full destruction of biological warfare programs by China, US, UK and many other countries. For now mass media perfectly drive attention away.

    Also both US and China require COVID to continue as both need to inject many more trillions to keep stability.

    We are talking about survival of huge hierarchical systems that are ok with deaths of tens of millions of people if it buys some time for them.

  • Mordor, or how bad medicine paired with panic looks like

    In Mordor, the demand for medical drugs has increased 15 times. This was stated by the Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.

    “There was a sharp increase in consumption - 15 times. In June, we understood and assumed, provided for a double increase in volumes. But, of course, no one expected a 15-fold increase, ”the minister said.

    According to Manturov, the situation with the availability of drugs in pharmacies is now beginning to improve thanks to manufacturers who have increased production. “All manufacturers have maximized their production capacity. We are already receiving information from the field that the situation is improving, ”said the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

    Situation is really getting better, mostly you can buy antibiotics if you wish to make some trips.

    Whole shit happened due to horrible prescription and lack of logic as they started prescribing horse amount of different antibiotics and totally local inefficient antiviral drugs to everyone.

    Most horrible thing is that it work such a way that people usually get any real consultation only at 4th day best, and frequently at 7th-10th.

  • Vitamin D

    VitD appears to be essential not only for ‘healthy bones’ but also for many other organs and tissues.7 However, low VitD status seems to be a global problem: it was estimated that about 1 billon humans could have VitD deficiency or insufficiency.8 A high prevalence of low VitD was found in many European countries as well, particularly in Eastern and Central Europe.9-11 Much better VitD statuses were found to be in countries such as Norway and Sweden,12 the latter findings might be explained by high consumption of oily fish, cod liver oil, fortified food and/or higher rates of VitD supplementation.13 There is increasing evidence that VitD deficiency may have been underestimated/ignored in low latitudes, even in tropical countries.14 More recent data showed that, in European countries, in particular Southern, Eastern and Western Europe prevalence of VitD deficiency (if defined as serum 25OH‐D levels <20 ng/mL) could be 30%‐60%, and up to 80%—in the Middle East

  • Moderna has just published the first headline efficacy data from its Phase 3 COVID-19 trials showing that its breakthrough mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, which is extremely similar to the Pfizer-BioNTech candidate, is more than 94% effective at preventing the virus, higher than Pfizer's 90%, and "Sputnik V's" 92%.

    Analysis of the data, covering more than 30,000 volunteers, showed the vaccine prevented virtually all symptomatic cases of the virus, as it appeared even more effective than Pfizer's vaccine. Only five participants who received two doses of the vaccine became sick, compared with 90 coronavirus cases in participants who received a placebo. The vaccine also appears to prevent the most serious infections. “That for me is a game-changer,” Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said. Additionally, Moderna said its vaccine is stable at refrigerator temperatures for 30 days, much longer than the 7 days that analysts expected.

    Btw second wave also had been ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED now as vaccine owners needed as much COVID sick patients as possible. Having no or very weak wave had been very bad for business as numbers will be worse (as one of the numbers - main one, in calculations is number of sick patients who got placebo).

    Compared with normal years, there have been more deaths at home from a number of major causes, including cancers and respiratory diseases, during the last six months.

    The latest analysis published by Britain's Office for National Statistics found that more than 26,000 "extra" deaths occurred in private homes this year, while simultaneously hospital deaths have been lower than usual.

  • Ruling class have long plans

    In the spring there was a general lockdown. In your opinion, was he acquitted? And is it necessary to introduce it now and then, because, as I understand it, the incidence will go in waves?

    Yes, until 2025 all this will proceed in waves.


    Science thinks so.

    That is, the vaccine in this case will not solve the problem?

    It won't decide. What can a vaccine do? What real task should be set for it? So that the disease does not run hard. If you get the flu, but you get vaccinated, you won't get very sick. This is a real challenge for a vaccine. The elimination of the virus will now remain with a person for life, this is what came to a person when he became a biological reservoir. The same happened with the "Spanish flu", because 100 years have passed, and the virus circulates. Another thing is that there are periods of activity and inactivity. So it is here. The vaccine will help reduce the activity, virulence of the virus. This is real. And for the virus to leave society - no.

    Btw words here about "Spanish flu" are mostly bullshit.

  • Speaking with HuffPost UK's Commons People podcast, as noted by Metro, Conservative Tom Tugendhat has warned that he could 'certainly see the day' when proof of vaccination was required to return to normal life.

    'If vaccination works and if we’re confident it’s safe, and all indications so far are good, then I can certainly see the day when businesses say: "Look, you’ve got to return to the office and if you’re not vaccinated you’re not coming in,"' he added.

    "And I can certainly see social venues asking for vaccination certificates." That said, a government mandate over the vaccine is reportedly not on the immediate horizon, per Health Minister Matt Hancock.

    They want money, badly.
