Fortunately the test turns out to be negative, although the tests are just 70% accurate.  

But being father to a toddler with chronic medical issues and with another 6 month old... had to self-isolate from them.  

 

Still not sure what is ailing me though.  Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills, fatigue, body aches, with coughing probably due to throat irritation from the reflux.... nothing like blacking out while waiting at ER.  

 

The bright side in all this.... at least I didn't have to change any diapers this week so far, lol.  

Hope you're feeling better soon!  Not that I wish diapers on anyone!

You probably got a bad bug.  Maybe bacterial.  Covid would most likely have affected your lungs more.

 

Hope you get better soon.

Promising clinical trial results for COVID-19 vaccine coming from Vancouver-based biotech company

Quote

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — A promising update is coming from a Vancouver-based biotechnology firm that is helping a German company to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.

 

Dr. Thomas Madden, the President and CEO of Acuitas Therapeutics, says preliminary results from clinical trials are good. But, “There’s still a lot more clinical studies that need to be conducted.”

 

“The vaccine that they’re testing appears to be generally well-tolerated and gives rise to roughly effective levels of antibody in these volunteers.”

Madden adds the company is focusing on making this medicine more effective.

 

“This vaccine is using a new technology called MRNA and if you inject it into the body, it would be rapidly broken down. Acuitas provides the delivery technology that protects the mRNA after it’s administered and then, carries it into the cells.”

 

Madden and his staff of 25 are working with BioNTech to ensure the vaccine is effective once it’s injected and there’s hope it could be available early next year.

“General expectation is that a vaccine could become available early in 2021,” he says.

 

“We’re very fortunate that there are a fairly large number of different vaccine candidates in development. We are hopeful that as many as those as possible will be successful.”

 

He says the key challenges are that once a vaccine is ready, it is making sure it is safe, then being able to make enough of it fast enough to make it globally available.

She encourages the use of masks if there is little chance of social distancing, which was hardly the case in the schools.

 

Do you really think small kids are able to effectively social distance ?  Hardly the case. 

 

By opening schools and providing no PPE / masks  / sanitizer to students and schools ... Horgan and Dr. B basically set the example for the general public to not take precautions indoors. 

 

 This was in my opinion very short sighted.   It sent a message to people to not take this virus seriously....    The wearing of masks is not needed.

 

Dangerous message for our government to send out.

With only 15-20% of the students returning to school, I wouldn't think it that difficult to allow for appropriate social distance.  Again, not a single child was infected.  Nobody knows what this situation will look like in the fall, so there's no point in addressing it right now.

I don't see that at all.  Seems to me, the general public is very clear about the guidelines that have been set.  BC #s for new cases continues to look very good.  I though there would be a noticeable uptick in new cases due to the protests, but apparently 85% of the participants were wearing masks.  General public taking precautions at it's best!

You are certainly entitled to your opinion Kos.  Imo, people are taking the virus seriously and the message from the experts (including the guidelines) have been loud and clear.  So far, the province has been able to maintain low levels of new cases and more importantly, low levels of ICU admissions.  As stated before, any positive cases are taken care of by the fantastic tracing done by Dr. Henry and her staff.

 

Even though there may be a spike in the stats, the approach will be the same.  Stay calm...be kind...and follow the guidelines.  Adjustments will be made as required, but I have no doubts that our health care experts will continue to lead us in the correct direction.

 

#Kudos to Dr. Henry, Mr. Dix and Premier Horgan.

America wow....30k cases one week to 50k cases a day.  The estimates of potentially seeing 100k new cases per day are now not only out of the ordinary there is a betting line on it

Well, he did wrestle as a character that easily fit as a heal.  Definitely not a baby face thing there Glenn.  At least he was the only dissenting vote.

Former professional mask wearer, current mayor votes against mask ordinance in his county

The board of health in Knox County, Tennessee — home of Knoxville and the University of Tennessee flagship — voted Wednesday to mandate masks for anyone inside certain buildings.

The vote was one shy of being unanimous, but that dissenter, Mayor Glenn Jacobs, raised plenty of eyebrows.

 

That is because Jacobs, as you might remember, was once one of the most prominent mask-wearers in the United States during his previous career, as the famed WWE professional wrestler Kane. This is how he once looked at his night job:

Jacobs was elected mayor of Knox County in 2018 via a close Republican primary and a landslide win in the general election over Democrat Linda Haney. While he ran as a Republican, Jacobs identified his political beliefs as libertarian when talking to Yahoo Sports about his burgeoning political career.

In practice, the sight of Jacobs wearing a mask have been rare on his social media accounts, though he did make an exception for a visit to the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.

Great candidate for future POTUS as we have obviously slipped into a dimension based on the movie 'Idiocracy'. 

He will feed the plants energy drinks and the top reality tv show will be called 'Ow my balls'

Maybe he's determined to meet the Undertaker? :unsure:

Congrats DeSantis.
