According to the geniuses here, Japan controls the number of cases by controlling the number of tests.

If it's effective why don't the rest of the world follow?

We don't need vaccines if we can lower number of cases by just lowering number of tests.

Best is stop testing altogether and virus will be gone =)

52% of the population.

11% of a hundred + 41% of a different hundred is 52 out of 200.

Thanks for the correction.

Yes, around 26% assuming equal population both sides

According to a poll last week, 41 percent of Republicans nationally said they would not get the vaccine, compared to just 11 percent of Democrats.

52% of the population.

Posted in: Why do dozens of U.S. states want to ban transgender women from sport? See in context

Laws have to be created to ban men from competing in women's sports.

Preposterous, but unfortunately, now necessary.

Posted in: Why do dozens of U.S. states want to ban transgender women from sport? See in context

Shouldnt be necessary because everyone should know the difference between man and woman.

Unfortunately sports associations cannot stand up by themselves against the pressure from supporters of men who call themselves women that want to compete in women's categories

Posted in: Australia names surfing Olympic team after jellyfish to instill killer instinct See in context

"Irukandji perfectly suits our team as we try our best to be deadly in the water against our rivals in the Tokyo Olympics."

The jellyfish were named after Irukandji Country, along the northern coast of Cairns in Queensland, and Surfing Australia were given permission to use the name by the local Yirrganydji people.

China easily trumps that, their team is named sarscov2, named after the microscopic but deadly organisms thought to have originated in one of its cities

Posted in: How worried should we be about reports of blood clots and AstraZeneca's vaccine? See in context

Yes, we should be very worried about the reports.

But regarding whether astrazenecca vaccine causes blood clots, evidence supports we shouldn't

 Further reduction of tests obviously needed

If they do that people might get suspicious. Better to do many tests and report low positives =)

I honestly believe this entire pandemic can end with Ivermectin (in medical use since 1981). If they made it readily available so many lives of people who are truly at risk (comorbidities) would be saved. Pharma will try to bury any news or promotion of this drug. It's so unfortunate because this ENTIRE pandemic can end with Ivermectin.

I sincerely hope your faith in this drug proves to be true. This is still in trial right? If in case it has been proven effective, i dont think big pharma or any entity or institution would be able to bury it.

But regarding covid vaccines, my honest opinion also is that you are absolutely mistaken.

If you actually believe 2.6 million people died from Covid, you're not interested in the issue.

By saying that the vaccines caused all the adverse events and deaths reported in vaers, what is clear is that you are not interested in the truth.

Posted in: Major European nations suspend use of AstraZeneca vaccine See in context

the AstraZeneca vaccine has 54,571 adverse events reported in Europe so far, including at least 198 deaths (63 cardiac)

The Pfizer mRNA vaccine has 102,100, including at least 957 deaths (276 cardiac)

198 + 957

Even if you believe the vaccines caused those deaths covid is still a little more dangerous at more than 2.6 million deaths attributed to it.

i@n,

I agree that the development of a vaccine has been rushed, the necessity to roll out a policy that would halt the spread took precedence.

I agree with everything else in your post, thanks for treshing out some details, but im not of the opinion that the vaccines we have now were rushed. They were certainly fast-tracked but saying rushed implies corners were cut and correct processes not adhered to.

I might be mistaken of course, wouldnt be the first time

Many people here want to stop the vaccinations altogether, ostensibly because of the danger to peoples lives.

But you already know what happens if there are no vaccines.

Millions have already died.

, lies with the Political leadership of all 27 member states, that have decided a course of political points scoring over that citizen’s lives   

I agree it was mostly a political decision by each nation's leaders.

Thing is, even if we take it for granted that the bloodclots were a side effect of the vaccine, stopping or even just delaying the vaccinations will most probably lead to far more lives lost.

In fact, it said the incidence of clots is much lower than would be expected to occur naturally in a general population of this size and is similar to that of other licensed COVID-19 vaccines.

they should show the data for these assertions otjerwise people wouldnt believe them

Posted in: Mississippi becomes first U.S. state to ban transgender athletes from women's sports See in context

Female divisions of sports are created obviously for females only.

A weak or weakened male is not reason to be accepted to compete in the female divisions.

If we want male and female to compete together then make mixed teams/divisions like in some sports, as prescribed in the bill

Lol not bad remembering those details after 30years.

Anyway, whatever the hospitals use ,the directive according to the nhk piece is for them to make sure sufficient amount of vaccine reaches the muscles.

@Antiquesaving

Yes, I understand fully well the issue re short needles but if the doctors or hospitals think they can competently use said syringes for vaccine inoculation they can use it if they have extras.

Thats what the approval was for.

If the real reason for not procuring is that it would be really difficult to administer the vaccine correctly using it then i believe govt would have withdrawn the approval/ not approve in the first place.

In any case, i really appreciate the efforts youre putting out to.try to inform and explain to people.
