  • Philippine President Duterte Apologizes for Taking Unapproved Sinopharm Jab, Requests China Withdraw Doses

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte warned Filipinos not to follow his example and get the China-made Sinopharm vaccine which has not yet been approved by the country’s health regulator for use against the CCP virus. Duterte, who was able to get the Sinopharm jab via a compassionate use permit despite the drug not yet being approved, has since asked the Chinese embassy to return 1,000 unused doses that were donated by Beijing. Following criticism, Duterte told Filipinos, “Don’t follow my steps.” “It’s dangerous because there are no studies, it might not be good for the body. Just let me be the...

    The Philippine foreign minister on Monday demanded in an expletive-laced Twitter message that China’s vessels get out of disputed waters, the latest exchange in a war of words with Beijing over the South China Sea. The comments by Teodoro Locsin, known for making blunt remarks at times, follow Manila's protests for what it calls the "illegal" presence of hundreds of Chinese boats inside the Philippines 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). "China, my friend, how politely can I put it? Let me see… O…GET THE F**K OUT," Locsin tweeted on his personal account.

    The clinical trial results on the use of anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin as a treatment for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) could be expected by January 2022 or by first quarter of 2022, a top official of the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Health Research and Development (DOST-PCHRD) said Monday, May 3. DOST-PCHRD Executive Director Dr. Jaime C. Montoya said preparations were underway to ensure the smooth conduct of the clinical trial, which will likely be conducted by end of May or first week of June. "The clinical trial may be completed before the end of year, but of course, the...

    Almost completely forgotten by average Americans today, Commodore Dewey's smashing victory at the Battle of Manila Bay was, for a short time, a sensation which commanded the attention of the entire nation. It transformed Dewey from an unknown naval officer into one of the all-time American heroes, elevating to legendary status his famous command, "You may fire when ready, Gridley." In another previous post, we looked at some of the events leading up to the battle from a sailor's point of view aboard the USS Olympia taken from the classic memoir, Three Years Behind the Guns by John Tisdale. Now,...

    Manila Bulletin ^ | 04/30/2021 | Jhon Aldrin Casinas
    The Philippine College of Physicians (PCP) maintained that people should wait for the results of the clinical trials of the anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin before it can be used for the treatment of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country. PCP Vice President Dr. Maricar Limpin warned that taking the drug despite the lack of evidence to support claims that it is supposedly effective against COVID-19 will only give people false security. “Our position in that is we still have to wait for the results of the clinical trials because that will be our evidence on whether we can give it for...

    If you're a Californian looking to attend a social function without being forced to wear a pesky face mask, there's good news: All you have to do is get yourself invited to the Oscars on Sunday. That's right, according to Variety, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that Oscar attendees in the state that has some of the most severe and onerous pandemic lockdowns in the nation will not have to wear masks during the telecast of the ceremony — well, at least as long as the cameras are rolling. But when it's time for...

    On a recent walk, I came across a neighborhood littered with the yard sign in this photo. It seems the provocative platitudes we’ve seen on bumper stickers for a century have now taken root in our yards. And for the same reason: To tell the world that the sign-planter holds wonderful beliefs that he’s willing to impose upon and attribute to the rest of his family. It’s surely not because the sign-planter thinks he’s persuading anyone of the rightness of his position, as if the neighbors reading the sign will say to themselves, “Gee, ‘Democracy dies in darkness’ is a...

    On February 9th a prominent member of the medical establishment here came out in a very public manner in favor of ivermectin as a treatment for not only patients infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19, but also their caregivers. Reported in The Nikkei, a prominent Japanese economics and business focused publication, Haruo Ozaki, chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association, came out and recommended the emergency use of drugs such as Ivermectin administered to those COVID-19 patients, declaring they exhibit efficacy toward preventing disease progression in other nations. Clearly, Dr. Ozaki falls on the side of a rapidly growing group...

    India recently reported over 330,000 new COVID cases in a single day, a new world record.There is a way to dramatically reduce these numbers.The problem is that India, like most countries, has been following the advice recommended by the recognized authorities (NIH, CDC, WHO, and EMA) for how to prevent and treat COVID. This advice is based on evidence-based medicine (EBM), which takes a relatively long time to discover and rigorously validate effective treatments. Today, India doesn’t have the luxury of time. Hospitals are so overloaded now that extremely sick people cannot get in.It’s clear that it is time for...

    (...) "Many universities are moving to require students and faculty to receive COVID-19 vaccines before returning to campus in the fall. But one private pre-K to eighth grade school in Florida has turned that on its head, The New York Times reports today. The school last week told its teachers and other staff they should avoid the “COVID-19 injection” because of the purported dangers that vaccinated people posed to students. A co-founder of the Centner Academy in Miami, Leila Centner, informed its 50 teachers and 25 support staff that if they choose to be vaccinated against COVID-19, they will not...

    Young people are far less susceptible to both Covid-19 infections as well as serious symptoms. Healthy people, such as track and field stars, are also considered to be safer than most. Being outside away from others is a surefire way to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Why, then, did Oregon force high school junior track star Maggie Williams to wear a face mask while competing?It’s an asinine policy that has thankfully been reconsidered, but only after Williams passed out at the finish line of a record-breaking race.Oregon high school junior breaks 800-meter school record and falls face-first at finish line...

    Novavax may jump ahead of AstraZeneca as the drugmaker most likely to get its COVID-19 vaccine approved next by the FDA, Politico reported April 27. Below are seven key details about Novavax and its COVID-19 vaccine: 1. Novavax, founded in 1987 and based in Gaithersburg, Md., has never brought a product to market. 2. The drugmaker's COVID-19 vaccine candidate is a subunit vaccine made of proteins resembling those on the surface of the novel coronavirus, which are meant to generate an immune response to the virus. It does not require ultracold storage, as do the COVID-19 vaccines produced by Pfizer...

    A reevaluation of newer evidence on ivermectin showed that it is still not recommended as a COVID-19 treatment, the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) said Wednesday as two lawmakers gear up to distribute the antiparasitic drug in Quezon City. Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said a group of experts, composed of medical societies and the government’s health and regulatory agencies, found a “very low quality of evidence” on the use of ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment. The group found “insufficient evidence” to support the use of ivermectin on mild to moderate COVID-19 cases and also recommended against the use of...

    Two more hospitals in the Philippines have been granted compassionate special permit (CSP) for the use of the antiparasitic drug ivermectin on COVID-19 patients, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Tuesday. There are now five hospitals that have been issued a CSP for ivermectin, FDA chief Eric Domingo confirmed to GMA News Online. Domingo previously made clear that a CSP is not a marketing authorization, meaning ivermectin cannot be sold commercially yet. A CSP is also not an FDA endorsement of a drug’s quality and efficacy. “[The] concept is you have a patient who is suffering and you don’t...
