    I'll always praise Fauci. His professional record is beyond reproach and his demeanor is positively angelic.

    But you are correct, it doesn't matter at this point. All we can do is hope.

    Worrisome coronavirus variant now linked to half of cases in California

    New evidence suggests a more aggressive strain, spreading faster and causing worse illness



    This is a problem...

    We can't let this spread all across the U.S. or we're looking at a 4th wave. I have no faith in half the American people though so I just hope we get lucky...

    Worrisome coronavirus variant now linked to half of cases in California

    New evidence suggests a more aggressive strain, spreading faster and causing worse illness

    The team found that variant represented 53% of all positive test samples collected at the 24th Street Mission BART station in San Francisco’s predominantly Latinx community between Jan. 10 and Jan. 27 — a significant increase from November when it comprised only 16% of the positive tests, according to UCSF infectious disease expert Dr. Diane Havlir.

    The Mission District study was conducted by Unidos en Salud, a volunteer-led collaboration between UC San Francisco, the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub (CZ Biohub), the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and the Latino Task Force for COVID-19. With the assistance of the community, scientists were able to investigate key questions about household transmission. Compared to the original virus, the L452R variant is somewhat more aggressive, with an elevated “secondary attack rate” of 35%, up from 25% — spreading more quickly within a home.

    Evidence for increased transmissibility was also found by Chiu’s research. His lab detected faster rates of reproduction and increased viral “shedding,” when the virus is released into the environment. It also found that the variant was more infectious when introduced to lab-grown cells and tissues.

    The proportional rise in cases statewide due to the variant was rapid, doubling every 18 days. Cases linked to the variant doubled every 14 days in Santa Clara County and 33 days in Alameda County.

    To test whether antibodies could fend off this new strain, Chiu’s team tested the cultured virus in the lab against antibodies from people who were either vaccinated or had already been infected with the virus, although not this strain. They found a two- to four-fold reduction in the ability of antibodies to fend off the variant virus. This means that vaccines might have to be re-tooled to stay effective.

    Will we need updated “booster” vaccines? While no one yet knows, Havlir called it “a definite possibility.”

    To learn whether the variant caused more severe disease, Chiu’s team studied the medical records of patients admitted for care at UCSF. After controlling for age, gender and ethnicity, it found that people infected with the variant had significantly higher odds of being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and dying.

    The L452R variant was first detected in a few isolated cases in Denmark last March and emerged in California as early as May, although we didn’t start finding it until summer and fall. It has four mutations in the genetic code for its spike-shaped protein, used by the virus to enter cells. That’s why it is more transmissible, infecting and spreading more readily.
    This is a problem...

    We can't let this spread all across the U.S. or we're looking at a 4th wave. I have no faith in half the American people though so I just hope we get lucky...

    Shocked that you would describe the fever as "horrible". If you aren't a wimp, then I would say your reaction to the vaccine was definitely in the minority. We know ScRatChY is a wimp, so I can't reliably compare his experience to yours.

    Stop name calling Cold. It’s how you get banned from forums over and over.

    Im a wimp for wanting the vaccine to work? I’m a wimp for doing what the piece of paper that I had to sign beforehand stating that you shouldn’t take the vaccine if you don’t feel well on your scheduled vaccination date?

    Im just listening to the science and I get called a wimp for it?

    Listen to the science.

    Unplug.

    No, you’re right. I read that after I typed it. The first part is true. The second part is true of those that do experience symptoms. Thanks for allowing me to clarify.

    And yes, I would gladly take three hours of that horrible fever than 3 days.

    A lesser man would bump the mockery you generously offered me about gnarly Covid vaccine experiences. I am not that man. And it's more common than you think. A sore-ass shoulder with a headache and mild fatigue should be expected at the minimum.

    I would leave you with: go in peace my son; rejoice in the guardian angels you now have flowing through your veins.

    P.S. Good thing you didn't catch the real McCoy with your hypersensitive immune system eh? ;)

    What it’s like to die from Covid-19

    “I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy”: Doctors describe what their sickest coronavirus patients endure.
    “Most of what I’m seeing is behind closed curtains, and the general public isn’t seeing this side of it,” says Todd Rice, a critical care and pulmonology specialist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Even “families are only seeing a little bit of it,” he says. As a result, most of us have been “protected and sheltered from seeing the worst of this disease.”

    So what have these nearly 500,000 people endured as the infection took over and their bodies failed? The terrible details have been strikingly absent from most of our personal and national discussions about the virus. But if we have been thus far (perhaps somewhat willfully) blind to the excruciating ways Covid-19 takes lives, this milestone is an opportunity to open our eyes.

    Four physicians, who collectively have cared for more than 100 dying Covid-19 patients over the past 11 months,shared withVox what their patients have gone through physically and mentally as the virus killed them. Their experiences reveal the isolating and invasive realities of what it is typically like for someone to die from Covid-19.

    Lungs “full of bees” and a “sense of impending doom”

    The torture of Covid-19 can begin long before someone is sick enough to be admitted to a hospital intensive care unit.....
    A gruesome account from doctors on the inside. For any readers of this fine forum who are over 65 and overweight, think twice before delaying vaccination. And for those of you who know someone in this demographic who are hesitant, maybe share this with them.

    I scare because I care.

    I got my second vaccine shot on Wednesday afternoon. Felt fine the rest of the day. Woke up feeling tired with a “head cold” so decided to work from home. About 2:30 I started to get chills and it got bad fast. I was shaking, my hands turned blue and I was in my full outdoor attire and under four blankets. Took some Tylenol and went to sleep. Woke up at 5:30 and fever was gone. Now my body aches from the 2+ hours of intense shivering.

    These symptoms are common, but not the majority. Most people experience no symptoms, and headache/mild fatigue is generally what occurs.

    It's generally believed that the more severe your experience with Das Alien, the more robust your immunity. It's also believed that the vaccine gives you protection along the lines of a severe experience. I know healthcare workers who've had serious bouts jump at the chance of a vaccine, but it was beyond 90 days. I would say take the ****er, every day and twice on Sunday if available.

    An interesting anecdote: A group (40's and 50's) involved in a super-spreader event, had a varying level of sickness (but most were quite ill for a time). All donated plasma, but only the one person who was the sickest was allowed to donate the longest, as the others had undetectable antibodies after several months. This speaks nothing about ultimate immunity and/or T-Cell readiness, it is just an interesting anecdote, and perhaps instructive.
