    A new Covid-19 vaccine is being developed by Texas scientists using a decades-old conventional method that will make the production and distribution cheaper and more accessible for countries most affected by the pandemic and where new variants are likely to originate due to low inoculation rates.

    Although more than 60 other vaccines are in development using the same technology, Bottazzi said their vaccine is unique because they do not intend to patent it, allowing anyone with the capacity to reproduce it.

    What’s worth noting is that, despite Johnson being as guilty as hell about breaking the covid rules and lying to Parliament, not a single cabinet or other minister has yet resigned. No wonder most people think that politicians are just in it for themselves.

    If he is damaged, as he undoubtably will be, but competition for the leadership is uninspiring, his cabinet colleagues, Javid, Sunak, Gore, Patel, etc have yet to win their spurs, he still might have enough right wing populist oomph, to win them the next election, but if the winning margins prove tighter they’ll ‘do a Thatcher’ on him and dump him afterwards.

    What has been shown is that the need for a strong independent body is required for dealing with pandemics and global health problems.

    WHO has had its hopes of becoming more effective dashed by the USA and other nations.

    Claims that the true number of deaths in England and Wales caused by Covid could be 17,000 have been debunked as “spurious” and factually incorrect by the Office for National Statistics.

    The figure 17,371 represented the death toll in people with no other underlying causes.

    It was common for Covid victims to have had a pre-existing health condition, but that did not mean they were at “imminent risk of dying from that condition, or even considered to have reduced life expectancy”

    Over the Christmas period, I developed thrombosis, unbeknown to me, and was diagnosed with this condition on January 1 after the pain in my upper thigh refused to go. I have no idea how this could have come about but quite a few people here in Spain have told me that it could possibly be a consequence of the COVID vaccine – I was double vaccinated last August. One of my Spanish friends told me that a relative of his – a man in his 30s who is very active – had developed the same condition after being vaccinated.

    I don’t know how plausible the claim is. Anecdotal evidence is not sufficiently compelling to prove a connection but then again that doesn’t mean we can rule it out – at least in specific cases – even if it is not statistically significant. Does anybody know anything more about this?

    You more than likely conducted your own Google search but when I did I came across research papers that might be related

    As far as I can see from what I have read, the thrombosis issue is linked to the Astra Zenica vaccine, rather than Moderna or Pfizer. The thrombosis types are, again as far as I have read, generally a specific type of thrombosis associated occuring with specific sites in the brain. (I don’t think that teh AZ vaccine was used very widely in Spain, but you would know better than me)

    The Thrombosis occurances that were associated with the AZ vaccine also appear to have occured much earlier that the time you state, between 1 and 7 days

    I think when the whole thing comes out in the wash we will be able to see what the long term, however my view is that we need to balance risks, i.e. the risk of a side effect (very rare) severe illness and or death from COvid (still rare but far more common than the fatal consequences of the vaccine.

    I say that having suffered a small stroke in March last year, 4 days after my first AZ jab (I was assured by my GP that the two things were not linked but he didn’t look very convinced when he said it!)

    Pfizer and Moderna have not produced Thrombosis, and some patients who have had thrombosis already had pre-medical conditions too. There is not any vaccine that is 100% safe or effective, they do not cure, they just prevent. COVID 19 vaccine is one of the most advanced scientific discoveries and new vaccines can be made in a few months instead of years, this discovery is going to be used in order to find the cure for other diseases.

    Canada protests mandates

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/feb/07/ottawa-declares-state-of-emergency-as-canada-trucker-protest-paralyses-city

    Reminds me of the French yellow vest protests.

    It seems that for American politicians interfering in another nation’s internal affairs is fully acceptable.

    “Patriotic Texans donated to Canadian truckers’ worthy cause.”

    Scientists and politicians “probably killed hundreds of thousands of people” by damaging the reputation of the AstraZeneca vaccine, according to an Oxford scientist who worked on the jab.

    Prof John Bell said: “They have damaged the reputation of the vaccine in a way that echoes around the rest of the world.”

    “I think bad behaviour from scientists and from politicians has probably killed hundreds of thousands of people – and they cannot be proud of that,”

    He would say that, wouldn’t he?

    I took a class in the history of medicine and the textbook shows that the first ones that were opposed to new medical discoveries were medical doctors and scientists and Pasteur was one of them, there is a group of medical doctors who are opposed to the vaccines, some anti vaccines doctors have attended conferences of anti-vaccine. I do not know if they have studied Pathology, and Microbiology, the medical implication of this disease, and how the vaccine was developed, or they have studied the history of all vaccines made since the black death. Several doctors and nurses have been killed due to the same propaganda and they have contributed to the deaths of many peoples
