Panorama des apports de la vaccination en #Océanie 🌺

1. En commençant par les coïncidences spectaculaires mais malheureusement mortelles, juste au moment où pratiquement 100% des adultes sont complètement vaccinés :
Aux #Samoa
2. Les #Tonga
~107k habitants, contre 202k pour les Samoa et une population très jeune dans les 2 (>30% de moins de 12 ans et <6% de 65+)
3. L'archipel de #Vanuatu est bien plus rétif à la vaccination.
On se demande bien ce qui pourrait expliquer ce faible engouement 🤨

Insularité et vaccination complète, conditions idéales pour juguler une épidémie, non ?
#Malte, #Chypre, #Islande, #NouvelleZélande
Mais alors, pourquoi toujours ces f… tendances exponentielles ?
Si on cherche bien…⏬
…on trouve quand-même un contre-exemple avec #Cuba.
Bon, ils ont leurs propres vaccins et ont aussi beaucoup travaillé sur les traitements
Et puis…⏬
…les bons résultats récents de Cuba sont à relativiser si on regarde d'autres pays d'Amérique centrale nettement moins vaccinés et qui s'en tirent plutôt mieux.

Genug #Tsunami für mich für heute.
Status von #Tonga weiterhin unklar.

Wellenhöhen für Korallen- und Tasmansee passen zu Simulationen. Beständige Wellenhöhen (~1m) in
großer Distanz. #California und #Japan werfen jedoch Fragen auf. Dafür zu niedrig auf #Samoa & #Fiji.
Vermutung liegt auf teilweise oder vollständigem #Caldera collapse.

Eventuell erst partieller Hangrutsch, danach Kollaps (beides weitestgehend unter Wasser).

Klare Daten kann man erst in Tagen erwarten.
Bekannt ist, dass es auf vielen Inseln im näheren Umfeld zu Schäden gekommen ist, teilweise aber in 1000en Kilometern Entfernung. Gerade letzteres braucht umfassende Analyse.

Normalerweise verlieren derartige Wellen schnell an Energie, außer sie sind besonders ausgedehnt.

Fiame Naomi Mata’afa, the first woman elected prime minister of Samoa showed up for her swearing-in ceremony on Monday to find her opponents had locked the doors to prevent her from taking office. h/t @rerutled

washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pac… #Samoa
Fiame Naomi Mata’afa and her followers pitched a tent on the statehouse lawn, where she took the oath of office instead.

“This is an illegal takeover of government. Because it’s a bloodless coup, people aren’t so concerned or disturbed by it.” #Samoa
Fiame was previously the deputy PM and defected last year from HRPP, which has ruled Samoa for 39yrs. She took on her former leader, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, who is the world’s 2nd-longest serving PM and has been in the role for more than 22yrs. theguardian.com/world/2021/may…

Samoan 🇼🇸 🇳🇿 Chief Who Enslaved Villagers 😢 Sentenced To 11 Years In New Zealand 🇳🇿

New Zealand 🇳🇿 Based Samoan 🇼🇸 🇳🇿 Chief Joseph Auga Matamata Used 13 Of His Countrymen As Slaves Over A Quarter Of Century

theguardian.com/world/2020/jul… #NewZealand #Slavery
"Matamata’s case is the first time anyone in #NewZealand had been charged with both #HumanTrafficking and #Slavery simultaneously."

The offending occurred between 1994 and April last year involving 13 #Samoans 🇼🇸 🇳🇿 from three villages on the island of #Upolu. The youngest...
... was just 12. 😢 The Crown argued there was a pattern to #Matamata’s offending, with him bringing small groups of people to #NewZealand over the 25-year period for his “own financial benefit”.

The greatest threat to the world’s oceans and all denizens of the deep is Not plastic, or climate change, or ignorance of sharks. The Chinese Communist Party paramilitary fishing fleet has invaded the globe Image
and they are wreaking havoc and destruction, while stealing everything possible, including minerals from adjoining lands. They have sellout minions who distract from this with a host of minor conservation missions that suck up well intended activists,
and the money of people who thought they were helping. With control of media the real story is fully censored for locals in many places. Any real ocean lover, activist, educator, or conservationist will stand for this cause. The rest will sit down, for the CCP.

Comenzamos con esta serie de hilos a las que denominé #PequeñosGrandesHeroes: son historias de equipos que, a su manera, consiguieron realizar cosas impensadas. Y no podía empezar esto sin hablar de #AmericanSamoa 🇦🇸, la selección que fue considerada como la peor del mundo. Image
Para empezar, debemos decir que el territorio consiste en una superficie total de 199 km², contando con 5 islas volcánicas y dos atolones de coral, contando con una población que no llega a las 60 mil personas. Es, a su vez, el territorio más meridional de los #EEUU Image
Los vecinos de #Samoa 🇼🇸 no son un país independiente, sino que son uno de los 14 territorios no incorporados de EEUU. Esto quiere decir que no solo ciudadanos estadounidenses, aunque el presidente de aquel país líder. Image

IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO ow.ly/ZLYi50zccSJ

Exemple tragique d'épidémie et de 63 décès (évitables !) suite à la non-vaccination contre la #rougeole sur les îles #Samoa (Nouvelle Zélande)

❌ En 2018 : seulement 28% d'enfants de <5 ans immunisés contre la rougeole !!
✅ Décembre 2019 : 85% des enfants de <5 ans vaccinés
Après 2013 la couverture vaccinale chez les enfants chute drastiquement de 67% à 28% !!

Il faudrait une couverture de 95% pour éliminer la rougeole d'une population

National #Measles immunization dramatically decreased from 2013 to 2018

🔬 9 octobre 2019 : 1 cas suspect de rougeole est identifié (ECHO)
🔬 16 octobre : épidémie confirmée avec 7 cas et 1 décès d'un enfant d'un an (Gouvernement des Samoa)
🔬 Novembre : plus de 300 cas suspectés + 3 décès
🔬13 novembre : plus de 628 cas suspectés

Pour avoir un ordre d’idée... et comprendre la situation à #Samoa

Imaginez une ville comme Limoges ou Dunkerque (environ 200.000 hab comme Samoa) qui serait confrontée à presque 5000 #rougeole, et qui devrait hospitaliser 60 ou 70 gosses en réa... et d’autres malades ailleurs
Même en France on aurait du mal, sauf à transférer un peu partout les patients et trouver des ressources.

On y arriverait, car nous avons un super système de santé qui nous coûte en consommation de soins et de biens médicaux env 203,5 milliards (données 2018)
Soit environ 8,6% de notre PIB, et 3037€ par habitant (en moyenne) très majoritairement financés par notre sécu.

Alors que le PIB 2018 de Samoa est de 0,861 milliard €, soit 779 millions €, à peine.

Comment ferions nous avec si peu ? Hein ?

2-3 choses sur la #Rougeole

C’est un des virus les plus contagieux (10 fois la grippe) : il peut être encore actif dans une pièce deux heures après le passage d'une personne infectée,

Une personne infectée peut en contaminer jusqu'à 15 à 20 autres non vaccinées ou immunisées
Tendance :

9.769.400 c’est le nombre de cas de #rougeole dans le monde en 2018

Et 7,585,900 cas en 2017...
La #rougeole a tué plus de 142.000 personnes en 2018 dans le monde (124.000 en 2017), la plupart des victimes étaient des enfants de moins de 5 ans, et la moitié en République démocratique du Congo, au Liberia, à Madagascar, en Somalie et en Ukraine.

#Rougeole aux #Samoa

La situation est dramatique : un peu moins de 200000 habitants, 4357 rougeoles en quelques semaines, déjà 63 morts, surtout des enfants.
Le pays décide la vaccination générale, obligatoire, sous peine de prison. Cette couverture vaccinale n’était que de 31%
171 cas dans les derniers 24 heures... la situation d’urgence décrétée depuis le 15 novembre.

La vaccination doit être maximale d’ici ce soir, et seules les équipes de vaccination peuvent circuler.
Les antivaxx y sont désormais réprimés car considérés à l’origine de cette catastrophe. Les commerces et administrations sont fermés, les trajets inter îles annulés. Le pays est fermé.

55 enfants de - de 4 ans sont morts. 55

20 sont toujours hospitalisés en situation critique.

Anti-vaxxers aren't the *only* reason measles is on a killing streak again, but they are a big factor. #DRC #Samoa read on... /1
2/ More than 5,000 people, mostly children, have now died from measles in the Democratic Republic of Congo #DRC ... france24.com/en/20191128-mo…
3/ ... and in Samoa, there've been more then 3,700 cases and 53 deaths from measles, in part because of the influence of anti-vaxxers ... france24.com/en/20191128-mo…

For many years I’ve been a scientist.

After studying Biomedicine, and then Medical Pathology science, I undertook postgrad studies in immunology and biochemical reactions in preterm neonates.

I’ve grown tired of #AntiVax pseudoscience, the destructiveness that their message
has caused in places like #Samoa with their current #Measles crisis, with 53 deaths in the last couple of weeks.

I’ve grown tired of the pompous self-righteousness of AVs posting images of themselves on Social Media, & thinking that they’re doing a great thing
by sending packets of Vitamin A over to Samoa, whilst it was their message, and visits by Taylor Winterstein & Robert F. Kennedy jr that has sparked this crisis.

I am sickened that AVs write Measles off as “just a RASH” whilst ignoring the fantastic work of
