First sequence of BN.1 (BA. a.k.a #Hydra is uploaded from #Arkanas

BN.1 is predicted to be both highly immune evasive and binds to host ACE2 better than circulating SARSCoV2 lineages
BN.1 (BA. stands out in the graph of immune escape vs ACE2 binding (relative to BA.2) of top circulating lineages in USA (#15dayTrends)!
AR has uploaded a BQ.1* sequence earlier in the week!

Study looking at the impact of vaccine misinformation found:

-66% of U.S. adults say they would be likely to recommend vaccinating a hypothetical 5-11 yr olds in their household who is eligible for the #Covid19 #vaccine.
-39% of the vaccinated-but-not-boosted hold high levels of misinformation about the effects and safety of #vaccines
-the more that unvaccinated adults worry about getting #long #Covid, the more likely they are to say they will get vaccinated
-40% of the #unvaccinated – or 9% of the total survey sample – are potentially persuadable to be #vaccinated…

Study from #England looking at the impact of #SARSCoV2 on #brain #pathology in 785 UK Biobank participants (aged 51–81) imaged twice found:

-brain changes in the following regions:
--greater reduction in grey matter thickness and tissue-contrast in the orbitofrontal cortex & parahippocampal gyrus
--greater changes in markers of tissue damage in regions functionally-connected to the primary olfactory cortex
--greater reduction in global brain size.
- infected participants also showed on average larger #cognitive decline between the 2 timepoints
-these imaging and cognitive longitudinal effects were still seen after excluding the 15 cases who had been hospitalized.

Study from @Yale looking at the association between the #Pfizer #COVID19 #vaccine and #SARSCoV2 positivity among 542 adolescents when the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 was predominant and within 4 months of the vaccine rollout for adolescents showed:
-estimated effectiveness of the #pfizer vaccine was 91%, with 93% protection against symptomatic infections & 85% effectiveness against asymptomatic infection
Conclusion: These findings suggest that the #Pfizer #vaccine was effective in adolescents within 4 months of #immunization, including against infections caused by the #Delta #variant.…

With their influence waning, @IndependentSage has rebuked Gov plans to end “free” COVID-19 tests— urging the “immediate” publication of scientific evidence.

So, what is their own evidence? Read more👇🏻
So, for background, who exactly are Independent Sage?

They say they are a “group of scientists who are working together to provide independent scientific advice to the UK government and public on how to minimise deaths and support Britain’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.”
Prominent members include:
•Prof Susan Michie
•Prof Christina Pagel
•Prof Gabriel Scally
•Dr Zubaida Haque
•Dr Kit Yates

All of whom have been plastered over our television screens, airwaves, & newspapers since the pandemic began.

It’s not the first time I’ve featured them

There was once a time, in the now dark & distant past, when journalists would craft their stories with balance and panache. Using credible sources to add “weight” to an article.

I’m about to tell you what today’s crop of “journalists” do👇🏻
But first, a bit of background. Yesterday @beverleyturner debated @DrNighatArif on @thismorning over the proposed rollout of Covid-19 vaccines to 12-year-old children.

Safe to say, it was a lively affair. But it’s important to note it was a more balanced interview than usual.
Both guests had opportunity to speak, and the presenters remained largely impartial throughout.

Dr Arif was representing an organisation called @projecthalo which is part of the United Nations “Verified” initiative. It is regularly promoted by big tech companies like YouTube.

So, #CoronaVirusUpdates...

Things are clearly getting worse. If you can hunker down, this is probably a good time.

Couple comments about these charts...
1. Testing is probably sufficient, or close to it. This is no longer a testing problem.
2. Deaths are staying low, likely because of better treatment as well as a younger cohort.

As for the US... #CoronaVirusUpdates

Wisconsin has been the epicenter for a while. The Governor there has done a horrid job overall, and it shows. They've lost all control.
North Dakota and South Dakota are not doing well at all either. But they are so sparse, that it isn't burning through either state either.
New York, New Jersey, Connecticut...are seeing the very, very early stages of a wave. Hospitalizations are up, deaths are not. But I fear this is the tip of the iceberg.
