    The European Union's health regulator on Friday backed authorization of Pfizer's (PFE.N) vaccine for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) for use in babies and older adults. If the European Commission authorizes its use, the shot, called Abrysvo, could become the bloc's first to protect infants up to six months of age from the virus when given to pregnant women. The commission last month approved the region's first RSV vaccine, branded Arexvy, from rival GSK (GSK.L) for older people.

    A study published by scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in July, and reportedly circulating widely on Chinese social media this week, concluded that as many as 20 species of coronavirus are “highly likely” to cause an outbreak among humans. The study appeared in Emerging Microbes & Infections in July, the South China Morning Post noted on Sunday, but it began making headlines in Chinese-language media as social media users discovered it and began spreading its conclusions online.

    Most bacterial and viral infections are contagious, and different types of pathogens may lead to symptoms of varying severity. Some illnesses may require antibiotics or antiviral treatments, while others may be prevented with the help of vaccinations. In this article, we take a look at the primary differences between bacterial and viral infections. We explore how these infections are transmitted and treated and what you can do to prevent getting and passing them on.

    For years, the World Health Organization has considered the Nipah virus to be a “priority pathogen” because it has the potential to cause a worldwide pandemic. Thankfully, up to this point that has not happened, but now an outbreak in India is making headlines all over the globe. Two victims have already died, and there are four others that have tested positive. A five kilometer containment zone has been established around the homes of the two men that died, and schools and businesses in the region are being forced to shut down. Authorities are hoping that such extreme measures will...
  • Doctors admit they can't tell Covid apart from allergies or the common cold anymore - highlighting how mild virus has become

    Covid patients are becoming harder to distinguish from those suffering from allergies or the common cold, doctors say. The most common symptoms of the virus are now sore throat, sneezing or congestion — the same as RSV, asthma or a pollen allergy. For comparison, in the early stages of the pandemic, Covid had very distinct symptoms - such as a dry cough and a loss of sense of smell or taste. Dr Erick Eiting, vice chair of operations for emergency medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City, which was hammered hard during the pandemic, said virtually every Covid patient in...

    As the fall season ushers in and kids are back to school, we find ourselves once again facing the challenge of a rise in respiratory viruses. A new alert out from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns of rising RSV cases in certain parts of the country. RSV is not a new adversary. It's a common virus that for most people causes mild, cold-like symptoms. While RSV typically peaks during the winter months, the pattern has shifted in recent years, with the virus showing up earlier in the year.

    Comprehensive panels of "reversion mutations" found in general circulation look like an experiment On August 5th 2023 a Japanese research team published a pre-print that appears to contain the most important and shocking revelations of the covid era. Atsuki Tanaka and Takayuki Miyazawa, of Osaka Medical University and Kyoto University, wanted to trace the historical evolution of the omicron variant of SARS-CoV2 by studying viral sequences found "in the wild" and deposited in public databases. In doing this they found around 100 separate omicron subvariants that could not conceivably have arisen through natural processes. The existence of these variants seems...

    The Pfizer clinical trials were a disaster. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. explains why. “Freedom of speech, not reach,” is taking effect more than ever as Twitter (“X”) regresses to its 1.0 days. Ever since Elon Musk hired CEO Linda Yaccarino, who has close ties to the World Economic Forum, things have taken a turn for the worse. In short, “lawful but awful” accounts and external links (especially Substack) are getting brutally deboosted. And permanent suspensions, which were promised to be reserved for unlawful speech only, have made a big comeback. Now, Twitter (“X”) is taking further action by making undesirable...
  • VERY URGENT: The mRNA Covid jabs damage immune responses to other viruses in children, a new study finds

    Unreported Truths ^ | 08/30/2023 | Alex Berenson
    Kids who got Pfizer’s mRNA Covid jabs had a weakened immune response to other viruses and bacteria, Australian researchers reported in a study published last week.The diminished response appeared within weeks after the second Pfizer dose, the authors found. Blood taken from the children produced fewer crucial signaling molecules when stimulated with several common potential bacteria and viruses. Over time, the immune response to bacteria returned to normal. But the diminished response to viruses lasted at least six months, for as long as the researchers collected data. “Our study showed that, in children, SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination decreases inflammatory cytokine responses,”...

    In an interview on Thursday, Dr. Kevin Stillwagon explained why we should never get tested and why we should never wear a mask to try to prevent or stop the spread of a communicable disease. He also explained what herd immunity is.“Let me tell you something about testing. It’s absolutely ridiculous. You’re looking for viral material in your snot and in your spit. That doesn’t mean anything,” Dr. Kevin Stillwagon told Nick Caturano and Rebekah Ricks.He was equally candid about the ineffectiveness of face masks and the harm caused by wearing them:“We all breathe about 100 million various viruses every...
  • Researchers discover potential target for gastric cancers associated with Epstein-Barr virus (Available decitabine helps)

    Medical Xpress / The Wistar Institute / mBio ^ | Aug. 22, 2023 | Sarah Preston-Alp et al
    Scientists have discovered a potential target for gastric cancers associated with Epstein-Barr Virus. In the paper, Wistar's Tempera lab investigates the epigenetic characteristics of gastric cancer associated with the Epstein-Barr Virus: EBVaGC. Italo Tempera, Ph.D. and collaborators demonstrate that an epigenetically active compound called decitabine disrupts the genome of EBVaGC by epigenetically modifying the cancer's DNA. "What we have identified is essentially a self-destruct button within this kind of cancer, and our paper shows that we figured out how to press that self-destruct button," said Tempera. "Normally, a latent virus that reactivates and starts to kill cells is a bad...

    The federal government has started purchasing COVID-19 equipment and hiring advisors on "safety protocols” amidst speculation the Biden White House will reinstate pandemic-era lockdowns and mandates, War Room can reveal. The unearthed government contracts from entities including the Department of Defense (DOD) show millions in taxpayer funds being used to purchase COVID-19 equipment such as test kits. Some of the contracts, which are traceable via the federal government’s spending database, are even scheduled to begin in future months such as September and October. The DOD, for example, gave Hologic Sales and Service LLC a $1.5 million contract beginning on October...

    Health authorities say they're closely tracking the spread of three new COVID-19 variants now spreading around the country. Levels of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths for now remain far below previous peaks seen during past summer and winter waves of the virus, but have been climbing steadily for several weeks. Public health officials have said that they're well-equipped for the latest seasonal uptick in the virus, with COVID-19 tests and forthcoming vaccines expected to work for the variants on the rise around the country. But the appearance of a new "highly mutated" variant has raised questions among virus trackers about what...

    For the fourth summer in a row, Americans are experiencing a COVID-19 surge, this one marked by a rise in hospital admissions, emergency room visits, test positivity rates and wastewater data. The good news: It’s unlikely that most cases will be severe or that the surge will be long-lasting, experts say. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting a rise in testing, though lab testing is not at the levels it was before the public health emergency ended in May. “I do see some early signs that we are heading into another wave. Of course, we don’t...

    Following the rollout of the Covid-19 “vaccines,” there was a hardcore push by people in authority to get as many men, women, and children jabbed as many times as possible. Politicians and bureaucrats made threats and restricted those who refused. Journalists gaslit us. Celebrities ridiculed us. It has only been in the last few months that the pressure campaign has let up a bit, but it’s still there in the background. While most Americans have a healthy distrust for politicians, corporate media, and Hollywood stars, a strong majority of people got jabbed anyway for one huge reason: Most doctors were...

    An anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to treat gout could significantly improve outcomes in patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 infections, according to research by a team led by Ralph Tripp. In a dose-range study of probenecid, researchers showed significant improvements both in preventing the transmission of COVID-19 and the speed at which symptoms cleared in patients. In comparison to other FDA-approved drugs used to treat the virus, probenecid helped clear symptoms several days faster, Tripp said. "This is a significant development," said Tripp. "It shows improvement in both virus clearance and symptom reduction." TrippBio enrolled 75 non-hospitalized patients with mild-to-moderate COVID-19.

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- A $5 billion loss: That's how much money should not have been paid out in unemployment benefits during the pandemic. A pandemic, new payment programs and short-staffing created a huge problem for the state's unemployment system. Now there are recommendations to improve it. "It really explains why people who qualified for these benefits had a hard time getting them," said state Rep. LaShawn Ford, D-Chicago. Ford said people in need may have lost out, while fraudsters cashed in. He's reacting to the Illinois Auditor General's report that the Illinois Department of Employment Security overpaid benefits by more...
