    When Your Company Is Named Covid, You've Heard All The Jokes

    In February 2020, Norm Carson was attending a trade show in Amsterdam, when news about the coronavirus hit.

    "We went in that day thinking we'd see some customers, do some training and it'd be a regular day. And then before you knew it, they had announced the name," he says.

    That name was COVID-19, and Carson is the CEO of Covid Inc. The Tempe, Ariz.-based company has been around for decades, and its cables and other audiovisual equipment are sold around the world.

    Just 12 People Are Behind Most Vaccine Hoaxes On Social Media, Research Shows

    Researchers have found just 12 people are responsible for the bulk of the misleading claims and outright lies about COVID-19 vaccines that proliferate on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    "The 'Disinformation Dozen' produce 65% of the shares of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms," said Imran Ahmed, chief executive officer of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which identified the accounts.

    Now the vaccine rollout is reaching a critical stage in which most adults who want the vaccine have gotten it, but many others are holding out, these 12 influential social media users stand to have an outsize impact on the outcome.

    I guess their SEO has taken a hit, as it likely also has for Corona beer and the thrash-metal band Pandemic.

    How will isolation affect long-term immunity?

    Every time you kiss another human being intimately for 10 seconds, more than 80m bacteria are transferred from mouth to mouth. If you’re at a party and double dip your tortilla chip into the salsa three times, around 10,000 bacteria will be transferred from your lips to the dip. Say “hi” to your co-workers as you sit down at your office desk and you’ll also be greeted by over 10m bacteria on its surface.

    Disturbing as these figures may seem, many scientists believe that exposure to these microbes helps fine-tune our immune systems – the network of cells and molecules that protect us from diseases. In 1989, epidemiologist David Strachan first proposed the “hygiene hypothesis” – the idea that being too clean causes defects in the immune system, leading to a rise in inflammatory diseases, such as asthma and allergies. While Strachan’s theory is debated and hygiene saves countless lives, decades of data support the idea that exposure to microbes helps the immune system develop.

    The same idea behind the 'boy in the bubble', due to immunodeficiency disorder. Though not empirical, the 'hygiene hypothesis' proposes that babies are often overprotected and not exposed enough to bacteria in their earliest months, may later develop asthma. Consuming local honey helps prevent pollen allegies, non-pasturized honey even better. We need exposure to the environment to boost immunity, but not pollution particulates. The idea of dirty masks come to mind...though bacteria might also be detrimental to the wearer. Change often or sanitize with H2O2.

    Yes, I've thought about the dirty masks. There's been so much emphasis on wearing masks, but little has been said about proper sanitization. I'm guessing that a good portion of the masks we've seen walking around have rarely or never been washed.

    Human tissue preserved since World War I yields new clues about 1918 pandemic

    On 27 June 1918, two young German soldiers—one age 18, the other 17—died in Berlin from a new influenza strain that had emerged earlier that year. Their lungs ended up in the collection of the Berlin Museum of Medical History, where they rested, fixed in formalin, for 100 years. Now, researchers have managed to sequence large parts of the virus that infected the two men, giving a glimpse into the early days of the most devastating pandemic of the 20th century. The partial genomes hold some tantalizing clues that the infamous flu strain may have adapted to humans between the pandemic’s first and second waves.

    The researchers also managed to sequence an entire genome of the pathogen from a young woman who died in Munich at an unknown time in 1918. It is only the third full genome of the virus that caused that pandemic and the first from outside North America, the authors write in a preprint posted on bioRxiv.

    “It’s absolutely fantastic work,” says Hendrik Poinar, who runs an ancient DNA lab at McMaster University. “The researchers have made reviving RNA viruses from archival material an achievable goal. Not long ago this was, like much ancient DNA work, a fantasy.”

    Hundreds of grateful Canadians flock to US border after Tribe in Montana offers COVID vaccines

    The Blackfeet Tribe, based in Montana just 150 kilometres south of Lethbridge, Alta., had an abundance of vaccine and decided last month to share it with Canadians rather than let it go to waste. Initially it was just open to First Nations, but the tribe soon decided to offer it to everybody.

    Many grateful Albertans, who have been waiting months for vaccine rollout, were given exemptions from having to quarantine for 14 days. They line up in their cars, drive through a loop that takes them just across the border, receive their shots through the window, are monitored for 15 minutes and return home.

    [​IMG]


    Alberta has had the highest active-case rate per 100,000 people of all provinces and territories in Canada for weeks.

    And a friendly reminder - the man who invented the test being used for "cases" said specifically it does not diagnose infectious diseases.

    Stench of death pervades rural India as Ganges swells with Covid victims

    There was a time before when the Ganges was “swollen with dead bodies”.

    In 1918, when the great flu pandemic swept through India and killed an estimated 18 million people, the water of this river – upon which so many lives depended – was filled with the stench of death.

    And so it is again. India’s official death toll from the coronavirus pandemic may be just over a quarter of a million, but experts believe the real figure to be up to five times higher, and the bodies that have begun washing up in India’s holiest river have become haunting representations of the uncounted Covid dead.

    They recovered from Covid, only to die of 'black fungus.' What we know about the disease sweeping India

    (CNN)In early May, doctors in India began raising the alarm about a rise in mucormycosis -- a rare and potentially deadly infection also known as black fungus.

    Many of those being infected are coronavirus patients, or those who have recently recovered from Covid-19, whose immune systems have been weakened by the virus or who have underlying conditions -- most notably diabetes.

    In the past few weeks, thousands of black fungus cases have been reported across the country, with hundreds hospitalized and at least 90 dead. Two states have declared it an epidemic, and the central government has made it a notifiable disease.

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/21/india/black-fungus-mucormycosis-covid-explainer-intl-hnk/index.html

    Things are looking pretty grim in India these days.
