Leaked documents reveal researchers applied for $14m to fund controversial project in 2018www.telegraph.co.uk
The following is a summary of some recent studies on COVID-19. They include research that warrants further study to corroborate the findings and that have yet to be certified by peer review.
The protection provided by Covid-19 vaccines appears to wane over time, especially for people 65 and older, a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expert said Wednesday.
Ruth Link-Gelles, who helps lead the CDC's Vaccine Effectiveness Team, reviewed a series of studies looking at the overall effectiveness of vaccines in various groups between February and August and found similar patterns for Pfizer's and Moderna's vaccines, both made using mRNA.
With more than 18 months of the pandemic in the rearview mirror, researchers have been steadily gathering new and important insights into the effects of COVID-19 on the body and brain. These findings are raising concerns about the long-term impacts that the coronavirus might have on biological processes such as aging.
As a cognitive neuroscientist, my past research has focused on understanding how normal brain changes related to aging affect people’s ability to think and move – particularly in middle age and beyond. But as more evidence came in showing that COVID-19 could affect the body and brainfor months or longer following infection, my research team became interested in exploring how it might also impact the natural process of aging.
Let's hope it doesn't become another situation like encephalitis lethargica. Scientists have never confirmed what caused encephalitis lethargica, a link to influenza has been more or less ruled out (the last EL pandemic during 1915-26 overlapped with that of Spanish flu) but it is now thought to be an enterovirus that caused it.Regarding the above article it does not state if being fully vaccinated shields you from this issue.
Ya those are the ones who fell in love with contrarianism and holding the rest of us hostage for funsies to the Big Pause Button known as quarantine and lockdown. I understand why these extreme measures were necessary before, but they make zero sense in a post-vaccine world.It appears that there will always be that relatively small number who will refuse.
There’s a bit of a puzzle here in Japan over the falling numbers, because pedestrian traffic in the big city centers has been increasing greatly, which should mean more infections.
