South Asian gene affects Covid severity: study (Nov 11, 2021)
University of Oxford study shows 60% of South Asians carry LZTFL1 gene involved with more severe Covid-19 illness and death

A large study published in The Lancet in May 2021 found the risks of being hospitalized, needing intensive care, or dying because of Covid in England were greater for Asian, black and mixed ethnicity groups compared with white people during the first pandemic wave in the UK (spring 2020).

In the second wave, the risk among Black and mixed ethnic groups decreased – but the opposite was found for south Asians. For them, the risk of ending up in hospital or dying of Covid was higher in the second wave compared with white people and other minority ethnic groups.
...
The researchers, from the University of Oxford, found that it is LZTFL1 that is involved in higher severity disease – not SLC6A20. Fully 60% of people of South Asian heritage carry the higher-risk version of the gene compared with 15% among white people and only 2% of people of African or Afro-Caribbean heritage.

Not only that, but this gene is very active in the layer of cells lining the airways and lungs.
...
The variant also makes cells have more copies of the two proteins (called ACE2 and TMPRSS2) that allow the SARS-CoV-2 virus to enter cells and infect them. What that means is that people who carry the high-risk gene variant are likely to end up having more cells infected, less ability to heal and therefore a more severe infection.

Briton gets jail in Singapore for not wearing mask (Aug 2021)

Benjamin Glynn was arrested after footage of him not wearing a mask on a train in May went viral.
...
He was convicted for breaching Covid-19 rules, bad behavior towards police and causing a public nuisance

According to reports, Glynn delivered a rant in court – in which he described the proceedings as “preposterous” and “disgusting” – and said masks were not effective in preventing the spread of Covid-19.

This prompted the judge to order a psychiatric assessment, but Glynn was deemed fit enough for the case to continue.

Singapore finding it hard to ‘live with Covid’ (Sept 27, 2021)
City-state set to tighten social distancing rules amid a record surge in cases despite a world-beating 82% vaccination rate

Singapore had until recently employed what many regarded as a “Covid zero” strategy backed by strict measures that kept daily cases in the single digits. As the region’s vaccination leader, the city-state’s transition to endemicity is being closely observed as nations across Asia similarly prepare to manage, rather than eradicate, Covid-19.

But cases have risen faster than expected in Singapore due to the more contagious Delta variant. The island nation of 5.7 million recorded its highest-ever daily caseload of 1,939 on September 26. The Ministry of Health (MoH) projects daily cases to exceed 3,200 within a week at the current trajectory and says hospital capacity could come under strain if left unchecked.

New curbs slated to take effect on September 27 include limiting dining-in and social gatherings to groups of two from an earlier maximum of five, a return to online learning for primary school students, and mandatory working from home for employees able to do so. A maximum of 50% of employees was previously allowed to be at their workplaces simultaneously.

Highly vaccinated Singapore sets a worrying example (Oct 22, 2021)

With 84% of Singaporeans fully vaccinated against Covid-19, one of the highest percentages worldwide, many had expected authorities would by now be easing, not maintaining, social distancing and other contagion-curbing restrictions.

But that’s exactly what officials are doing as the island nation seeks to cope with its largest outbreaks since the start of the pandemic.
...
Singapore’s daily cases hit a record 3,994 on October 19, with the seven-day average number of new infections more than tripling in the last month. The overall death toll has more than quadrupled over the same period, rising to 280 on October 21 from just 65. Authorities, meanwhile, have attested to rising pressure on hospitals and healthcare workers.
...
Since the “stabilization phase” began on September 27, the number of new infections appears to be plateauing, though there is no sign that cases are falling. Social gatherings were capped to a maximum of two while work-from-home has become the city-state’s default arrangement. Those measures will be reviewed after two weeks but will otherwise remain in place until November 21.

Dealing with the impact of Covid restrictions.
As COVID-19 rages, more in Singapore go hungry (Nov 10, 2021)

In 2019, Singapore ranked as the world’s most food-secure nation in the Global Food Security Index.

However, one in 10 Singaporeans experienced food insecurity at least once over 12 months, reported a study by the Singapore Management University’s Lien Centre for Social Innovation. Out of this, two in five experienced food insecurity at least once a month and many of these households did not seek food support, citing embarrassment, being unaware of what was available and the belief that others needed it more than themselves.
...
Each time the government’s multi-ministry task force handling COVID-19 announces new restrictions, the charity is flooded by requests from people writing in to ask for food.

Singapore recently announced that its COVID-19 restrictions would be extended until November 21, after registering thousands of new COVID-19 cases daily.
...
The ministry noted that about 4.5 percent of the population in Singapore was estimated to face moderate to severe food insecurity, according to the 2021 report on the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World published by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

This was lower than in other developed economies such as the United States (8 percent), New Zealand (14 percent), Australia (12.3 percent) and South Korea (5.1 percent), it added.

Taiwan suspends 2nd doses of Pfizer for teens over health risk (Nov 11, 2021)

The Taiwanese health authorities have suspended the administering of second doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine for children aged between 12 and 17, citing concerns about an increased risk of heart inflammation.

A panel of experts made the decision to cease giving the jab to teens on Wednesday, pending further review, according to the country’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) head Chen Shih-chung. The health authority opted to call a halt to the second jab due to concerns about an increased risk of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the heart’s outer lining).

Coronavirus risk for Asians, Africans, Caucasians revealed
February 10, 2020

What is your risk to get infected coronavirus?

East Asians, Japanese, and Han Chinese are the most likely people to become severely sick by the coronavirus with a chance of more than 90% when exposed. Europeans only rank in the 50%, Africans in the 60% range, and considered low to medium. It also makes a difference if one is a smoker or non-smoker.
...
Why is this?

The novel coronavirus (2019-nCov) was identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December of 2019.

This new coronavirus has resulted in thousands of cases of lethal disease in China, with additional patients being identified in a rapidly growing number internationally.

2019-nCov (SARS-CoV-2) was reported to share the same receptor, Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), with SARS-Cov.

Here based on the public database and the state-of-the-art single-cell RNA-Seq technique, the ACE2 RNA expression profile in the normal human lungs. The result indicates that the ACE2 virus receptor expression is concentrated in a small population of type II alveolar cells (AT2).

Surprisingly, studies found that this population of ACE2-expressing AT2 also highly expressed many other genes that positively regulating viral reproduction and transmission.
...
Apparently the coronavirus enters a human body through some connection with something called the ACE2 receptor. East Asians and men have more than say white Europeans and women. Being a white woman seems to be the way to have much lesser risk.

According to this preliminary study the risk of obtaining the virus:

According to this study and based on the assumption in this study and in regards to the receptor, Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, human populations where samples were available were categorized by risk in obtaining a dangerous version of the virus. Most ill may not feel more than a common cold, for others Coronavirus can be fatal.

that have the ACE2 receptors and how are they involved in SARS-CoV-2 infection? More ACE2 receptors on the Type II alveolar cells means there are a greater number of binding sites for viral infection.

The body clock kept altering itself through the pandemic, getting into the lock and unlock mode. With gyms being closed, workouts also happened in a new form. People also got more time to look for any remedies online and ignored initial signs and symptoms of a dangerous heart attack coming their way.

Yep. When I had symptoms of having a heart attack I went online to see what else it could have been…oh wait! Jeezus what a silly thing to say. I bet people reacted like I did..crap I’m having a f’cking heart attack!

to compare.

First of all, the two Chinese shots are "inactivated" vaccines, made with killed coronavirus, whereas the Western-made shots are made with newer technologies that instead target the "spike" protein that coats the surface of the coronavirus. These newer vaccines have never been used until SARS-CoV-2 broke out. There are dozens of reports that the spike protein is biologically active and could be dangerous in and of itself.

Overall deaths did NOT increase for most of China during initial COVID-19 outbreak

A new study involving researchers from the University of Oxford and the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) has examined the change in overall and cause-specific death rates during the three months of the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020. The results are published today in The BMJ.
...
Dr. Jiangmei Liu, a study author at the China CDC, said 'This was the first nationwide study in China to systematically examine the excess mortality during the COVID-19 outbreak, not only from pneumonia but also from a range of other conditions across different regions of China.'
...
In Wuhan city, apart from excess deaths from pneumonia (mostly COVID-19 related), there were about 1400 additional deaths from several chronic diseases. When examined by the location of these deaths, the data revealed that hospital deaths decreased significantly, whilst deaths that occurred outside hospital increased. This indicates that difficulty in accessing hospital services or a reluctance to seek medical care during the outbreak may have been a key factor causing the increased deaths from non-pneumonia related diseases.

Outside of Wuhan city, the small increase in deaths from COVID-19 related pneumonia were more than offset by a reduction in deaths from other types of pneumonia, chronic respiratory diseases and traffic accidents. This reflected the success of the rapid control of the spread of SARS-CoV-2, besides the appropriate maintenance of healthcare systems during the nationwide lockdown.

Zhengming Chen, Professor of Epidemiology at the Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford and senior author for the study, said 'It would appear that the lockdown and associated behavioural changes—such as wearing facemasks, increased hygiene, social distancing and restricted travel—actually had unintended additional health benefits beyond those of reducing the spread of SARS-CoV-2.'
...

Take note that the behavioural changes in China were identical to those in the West. The one major difference was the type of vaccine being used. TPTB are so invested in the new genetic therapies to combat SARS-CoV-2 they are blinded (wilfully or not) to admitting their product could actually be the cause of an increasing number of injury and deaths.

According to official statistics, the fully-vaccinated accounted for 83% of Covid-19 deaths and 67% of hospitalisations during the past month in England
Fri, 12 Nov 2021

The latest figures published by the new UK Health Security Agency on Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths show that the Covid-19 injections still don't seem to be working.

The 'Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report - Week 45' was published by the UK Health Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) on Thursday, 11th November 2021 and it shows that the vast majority of Covid-19 cases between October 11th and November 7th were among the fully vaccinated population.
...
The totals number of cases by vaccination status as confirmed by Table 3 of the UKHSA Week 45 Vaccine Surveillance report between October 11th and November 7th 2021 were as follows:

Not-vaccinated population = 378,122 cases
Partly vaccinated population = 62,154 cases
Fully-vaccinated population = 450,938 cases

This means the vaccinated population accounted for 58% of Covid-19 cases between October 11th and November 7th 2021 , whilst the not-vaccinated population accounted for 42%. However, if we remove under 18's from the equation, many of whom aren't eligible to be vaccinated, the figures are far worse for the vaccinated population.

(Sign of the Times).

Do you actually believe this?...According to official statistics, the fully-vaccinated accounted for 83% of Covid-19 deaths and 67% of hospitalisations during the past month in England.

From the Office for National Statistics in England...

1.Main points
Between 2 January and 24 September 2021, the age-adjusted risk of deaths involving coronavirus (COVID-19) was 32 times greater in unvaccinated people than in fully vaccinated individuals.

The weekly age-standardised mortality rates (ASMRs) for deaths involving COVID-19 were consistently lower for people who had received two vaccinations compared with one or no vaccinations.

ASMRs take into account differences in age structure and population size to allow comparisons between vaccination status groups; however some differences between the groups such as health status may remain and partly explain the differences in ASMRs.

!
This bulletin is an update to our previous article "Deaths involving COVID-19 by vaccination status, England: deaths occurring between 2 January and 2 July 2021".

Back to table of contents
2.Age-standardised mortality rates by vaccination status
Because vaccinations were being offered according to priority groups set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), the characteristics of the vaccinated and unvaccinated populations are changing over time. To account for differences in population size and age structure of the vaccination status groups over time, we calculated age-standardised mortality rates (ASMRs) for deaths involving coronavirus (COVID-19) (Figure 1) using the Public Health Data Asset (PHDA) dataset (see Measuring the data). This is a dataset containing people who reside in England who could be linked to the 2011 Census and the GP Patient Register 2019, which covers approximately 79% of people aged 10 years and over living in England. ASMRs for all-cause deaths and age-specific rates for deaths involving COVID-19 are also included in the accompanying dataset.

The vaccination status is split by dose and time since vaccination, to allow for the increase in protection in the first few weeks after vaccination. The vaccination status is one of:

unvaccinated

received only the first dose, less than 21 days ago

received only the first dose, at least 21 days ago

received the second dose, less than 21 days ago

received the second dose, at least 21 days ago

The ASMRs for deaths involving COVID-19 and all causes for vaccination status groups over the period 2 January to 24 September 2021 (Week 1 to Week 38) are shown in Table 1. These ASMRs are calculated in person-years at risk to account for the different time people spent in each vaccination state in the period.

Table 1: The age-standardised mortality rate for deaths involving COVID-19 is 32 times higher for unvaccinated people than for those who received the second dose
Age-standardised mortality rates for all deaths and deaths involving COVID-19, England, deaths occurring between 2 January and 24 September 2021
Age-standardised mortality rate per 100,000 person-years
(95% confidence interval)
Vaccination status Deaths involving COVID-19 All deaths
Unvaccinated 849.7 (840.3, 859.2) 2,187.1 (2,172.2, 2,202.0)
Received only the first dose,
less than 21 days ago 192.4 (182.4, 202.4) 811.9 (793.4, 830.4)
Received only the first dose,
at least 21 days ago 105.3 (102.8, 107.8) 1,124.3 (1,115.9, 1,132.7)
Received the second dose,
less than 21 days ago 7.2 (6.1, 8.2) 464.6 (455.8, 473.4)
Received the second dose,
at least 21 days ago 26.2
(25.4, 27.1) 783.6 (779.1, 788.0)

You keep posting these articles from a variety of sources that basically claim that the vaccinated are dying at a rate higher than the unvaccinated. And every time I check those claims, the bear no relationship to the real statistics.

@Fishtroller 02 @Fishtroller 02 original UK Report in pdf format COVID-19 vaccine surveillance reportWeek 45

Multiple explanations and cautions are included in the report to remind the reader not to come to the conclusion being unvaccinated is a logical choice for some.

As described above, several studies have provided evidence that vaccines are effective at preventing infection. Uninfected individuals cannot transmit; therefore, the vaccines are also effective at preventing transmission.
...
UKHSA have published a significant amount of research into vaccine effectiveness, which is summarised on pages 5 to 8 and in the publications in table 2.
...
Vaccination status of COVID-19 cases, deaths and hospitalisations by week of specimen date over the past 4 weeks up to week 44 (up to 7 November 2021) are shown in Tables 3 to 5. These data are published to help understand the implications of the pandemic to the NHS, for example understanding workloads in hospitals, and to help understand where to prioritise vaccination delivery. These raw data should not be used to estimate vaccine effectiveness.We have published a blog to accompany this section of the vaccine surveillance report
...
it is expected that a large proportion of cases, hospitalisations and deaths would occur in vaccinated individuals, simply because a larger proportion of the population are vaccinated than unvaccinated and no vaccine is 100% effective. This is especially true because vaccination has been prioritised in individuals who are more susceptible or more at risk of severe disease. Individuals in risk groups may also be more at risk of hospitalisation or death due to non-COVID-19 causes, and thus may be hospitalised or die with COVID-19 rather thanfromCOVID-19. The vaccination status of cases, inpatients and deaths should not be used to assess vaccine effectiveness because of differences in risk, behaviour and testing in the vaccinated and unvaccinated populations. The case rates in the vaccinated and unvaccinated populations are crude rates that do not take into account underlying statistical biases in the data. There are likely to be systematic differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated populations, for example:

•people who are fully vaccinated may be more health conscious and therefore more likely to get tested for COVID-19 and so more likely to be identified as a case (based on the data provided by the NHS Test and Trace)

•many of those who were at the head of the queue for vaccination are those at higher risk from COVID-19 due to their age, their occupation, their family circumstances or because of underlying health issues

•people who are fully vaccinated and people who are unvaccinated may behave differently, particularly with regard to social interactions and therefore may have differing levels of exposure to COVID-19

•people who have never been vaccinated are more likely to have caught COVID-19 in the weeks or months before the period of the cases covered in the report. This gives them some natural immunity to the virus for a few months which may have contributed to a lower case rate in the past few weeks.

Still yourself, deep water can absorb many disturbances with minimal reaction.

for the updated Covid info. I didn't get a chance to read it until last night and then just skimmed. Reading again this morning and the vaccine failure to curb cases and deaths is jumping out at me. The number of adverse events is disturbing. Putting the newest by Whitney W. on my reading list, TY.

Singapore's Covid stats despite being 84% fully vaccinated:

daily cases hit a record 3,994 on October 19, with the seven-day average number of new infections more than tripling in the last month. The overall death toll has more than quadrupled over the same period, rising to 280 on October 21 from just 65.

Wow, does the vaccine not work?

Lookout's picture

@randtntx

the vaccines minimize symptoms while they stimulate antibody response....which of course fades over time. But no matter what, it appears we will all get COVID, so take your Vit D, zinc, ad so on and be prepared to minimize the disease.

“Until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

@Lookout , I feel like the vaccine is a disaster and a huge mistake. Any other vaccine would have been withdrawn if they exhibited a horrific safety record like this one. It just doesn't look good to me. In fact, it looks as if the vax is making things worse. I don't know if we can believe the data out of Florida that shows they are doing better with early treatment and low vaccination rates. If it's true, that looks like our answer (along with all the things you mention above).

Have a good one Lookout, I'm in the middle of the Sheer post that you put up this morning, hope to leave a comment there in a bit.
