      The vaccines are working :-)

      I'm glad your Bojo in england is being a lot more sensible this time round, slowly slowly out of lockdown.

      Need to keep close control of the borders over summer!!

      Although im booked for a stag in benidorm 1st weekend in august, still unsure if thats on (can only dream ;D), no way we can all quarantine for 10 days either side of a long weekend. that's almost 3 weeks off work and away from the family. If were vaccinated maybe this passport thing will sort us out though.

      Johnson and Johnson vaccine 66% effective at preventing serious disease - single shot vaccine expected to be approved shortly by US.

      Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose Covid vaccine protects against is about 66% effective at preventing moderate to severe forms of the virus, and is safe to use, according to an analysis by US regulators ahead of a final decision on the jab.

      Reuters reports that the Food and Drug Administration’s independent advisers would debate on Friday if the evidence is strong enough to recommend the long-anticipated shot and the FDA would then be expected to make a final decision within days.

      J&J tested its single-dose option in 44,000 people in the US, Latin America and South Africa. Because different mutated versions of the virus are circulating in different countries, researchers analysed the results geographically.

      The numbers suggest the J&J jab isn’t as strong as two-dose competitors, made by Pfizer and Moderna – while it is about as effective as AstraZeneca’s, according to these early indications.

      The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines being used in the U.S. and numerous other countries must be kept frozen, while the J&J shot can last three months in the refrigerator, making it easier to handle. AstraZeneca’s vaccine, widely used in Europe, Britain and Israel, is made similarly and also requires refrigeration but takes two doses.

      China's Sinopharm and CanSino vaccines similar levels of protection


      Sinopharm affiliate Wuhan Institute Of Biological Products said in a statement its vaccine’s efficacy rate was 72.51 percent, while the overall efficacy for CanSino’s stood at 65.28 percent after 28 days.

      If their applications are successful, it would mean four of China’s domestically developed vaccines are approved for public use.

      The published efficacy rates of China’s vaccines, however, remain behind rival jabs by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, which have 95 percent and 94 percent rates respectively.

      Is J&J's vaccine RNA and the reason it's not as effective as Pfizer/Moderna which are mRNA?

      He's sending 10 million kids and teachers into schools in the space of a week.
      No extra rooms, no ventilation.
      It's just a huge f**king petrie dish.

      Yea, I know schools need to go back but a phased return would have been more sensible.

      Our clown of a Education Minister over here quickly tried to get the decision here to be reviewed even though it had been decided.

      Thankfully the Health Minster said today it remains a phased return.

      Honesty guys if you think the government in Westminster is bad they look like geniuses when compared to the clowns in Stormont.

      Interesting that Germany and France saying they are now being hit by a fourth wave. On schools in England the health advice is that they don’t think it will have much affect at all whether schools go back phased or in one go. To be honest I think the UK government are being over cautious with the amount of people who will soon have a high level of protection.

      The schools in my town have been open since the start of the school year last September. First 2 weeks were hybrid then K-8 went full time after that and ever since. There have been a few cases across the different schools but contact tracing has found that most cases in schools came from community gatherings and not the schools themselves.

      J&J vaccine similar to AstraZeneca vaccine. Except it uses a modified human cold virus instead of a chimpanzee virus.

      He's sending 10 million kids and teachers into schools in the space of a week.

      10 million kids were in school in the November lockdown and cases fell. Kids are v poor transmitters of the virus and have next to no symptoms.

      When the dust settles on this in a couple of years the science will say that closing schools caused an increase in deaths. The major risk of schools reopening is adults chatting wham to each other at the school gates.

      Interesting that Germany and France saying they are now being hit by a fourth wave.

      They will need a few more waves to catch up with the UK's death rate.

      Why would they want to catch up.

      yea, I kind of glazed over that bit. DOH !! That is a bit mental.

      At least scotguv, are letting kids back slowly, p1-3 amd some s4/5/6 for practical practical classes. Reviewing how that effects the numbers on 15th March, then making further descisions.

      In hindsight, even though some of UK guv dates seem sensible, they have kind of promised the world to everyone, it could go badly wrong.
