    The weekend before Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) tested positive for COVID-19, he was reportedly at a small gathering on his colleague Sen. Joe Manchin's (D-W.V.) houseboat in Washington, D.C, multiple news outlets are reporting.

    The morbidity in Israel is continuing to grow and the indicators are not showing signs of stabilizations, two experts told The Jerusalem Post Monday as Health Ministry’s Director General Prof. Nachman Ash described the situation in the country as worrisome in a press briefing. “We've been seeing a constant growth in number of cases which I find very concerning, not necessarily because of the numbers themselves but because of the pattern,” said Prof. Cyrille Cohen, the head of the immunology lab at Bar-Ilan University. “For example, if we look at the number of patients on ventilators, until a few days...

    (CNN)To avoid lockdowns, people in the United States will have to do things that they won't necessarily want to do, such as wearing masks at indoor gatherings even if they're vaccinated and having kids mask up in schools, the director of the National Institutes of Health said Monday. "We want to avoid lockdowns at all costs, but that means we're going to have to do some other things that won't necessarily be welcomed by people," Dr. Francis Collins said on ABC's "Good Morning America" when asked how he saw the fall playing out. Those unwelcome things include vaccinated people wearing...

  • COVID spreading fast in well-vaccinated California counties while Cases are falling in five counties with below-average vaccination

    California and its big coastal cities have embraced vaccines to beat back the COVID-19 pandemic. But a Bay Area News Group analysis shows not only are cases rising fast in much of the Golden State, they are soaring in many urban counties that boast high vaccination rates. Five California counties have both a higher percentage of their eligible residents fully vaccinated and a higher average daily case rate than the statewide average: Los Angeles, San Diego, Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco. The five counties with falling case rates — Modoc, Glenn, Lassen, Del Norte, San Benito — have below-average...

    Reuters ^ | 7/30/21
    July 30 (Reuters) - A new study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that three-quarters of individuals who became infected with COVID-19 at public events in a Massachusetts county had been fully vaccinated. The study, published on Friday, showed that three-quarters of those infected were fully vaccinated, suggesting the Delta variant of the virus is highly contagious. A separate CDC internal document, first reported by the Washington Post on Friday, described the Delta variant as being as transmissible as chickenpox and cautioned it could cause severe disease. read more The new study's authors recommended that local...

    "Counterintuitively, when a relaxation of non-pharmaceutical interventions happened at a time when most individuals of the population have already been vaccinated, the probability of emergence of a resistant strain was greatly increased," they added. "Our results suggest that policymakers and individuals should consider maintaining non-pharmaceutical interventions and transmission-reducing behaviors throughout the entire vaccination period." "When most people are vaccinated, the vaccine-resistant strain has an advantage over the original strain," Simon Rella of the Institute of Science and Technology Austria, who worked on the study, told reporters. "This means the vaccine resistant strain spreads through the population faster at a time...

    Higher COVID Rate Found In Some Counties With Higher Vaccination Rate – Why, And What It Says About The Delta VariantState workers and health care employees will now be required to show proof of vaccine or get tested for COVID at least once a week. The governor announced the new guidance today and is urging private employers to “replicate the example.” This comes as the highly contagious Delta variant is now dominant in the state and COVID rates have skyrocketed in the month since California officially reopened, including breakthrough cases among vaccinated Californians. A new analysis finds several counties with...

    Los Angeles County health officials reported more troubling COVID-19 increases on Tuesday. They confirmed more than 2,000 new cases, along with 15 additional deaths. And as case numbers continue to climb, more vaccinated people are now testing positive for the virus. From July 1 to July 16, more than one-quarter of new infections were among fully vaccinated Angelenos, though county public health director Barbara Ferrer says those cases were not serious.

    The CDC now urges public indoor masking after a worrisome study on the Delta variant — undermining the vaccine effort. We finally know what drove the CDC to revise its guidance days ago without explanation to recommend that fully vaccinated individuals wear masks in public indoor settings in areas of the country with high or substantial COVID-19 transmission. The Washington Post released a July 29 CDC slide presentation, and the CDC confirmed that one of the unpublished studies cited was pivotal in its decision. The slides largely just confirm what was already known: The Delta variant is more contagious than...

    Study of area cases says variant leads to ‘increased risk of transmission’ A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study regarding the Provincetown COVID-19 outbreak published Friday provides new evidence that vaccinated people are vulnerable to the disease’s highly contagious delta variant. A key finding in the report is that almost three-quarters of people infected in the Provincetown outbreak were fully vaccinated. That and other data from the Provincetown outbreak provided evidence that pushed agency scientists to advise that vaccinated people across the country again wear masks in indoor public settings in certain circumstances. “High viral loads suggest an increased...

We’ve been studying the reports by the week and recently told you how the report released on the 23rd June 2021 announced that 5,522 people had died within 28 days of having a Covid-19 vaccine in Scotland.A few weeks ago we noticed that Public Health Scotland were being very clever with the way they were presenting the data, in what seems to be an attempt to hide a shocking statistic in regards to Covid-19 deaths and the Covid-19 vaccine.
