After spending 4 nights recovering from their hectic pace in the 24m+ case clubhouse India got started on cleaning out almost 4 months of cobwebs and dust from the 25m+ case clubhouse today while they've just recorded a daily death count that has put them into 2nd place there and the U.S. yesterday had the grand opening of their 600,000+ death clubhouse.

Bahrain was the 77th member of the 200K+ case club while Thailand became the 92nd member of the 100K+ case club.

Vietnam seems to have taken being passed by Timor-Leste as an affront as they're now trying to run them down, currently Timor-Leste has made it up to 168th place with Vietnam now right behind them in 169th as both power on through the 4K+ case clubhouse.

Meanwhile down in Sydney there's still been no sign of their "missing link" so restrictions down there have now been eased again, but there is some promising news from just over our northern border.

Qld based team develop antiviral treatment that could reduce virus by 99.99 per cent.

A team of Queensland scientists has co-developed a “gene-silencing” antiviral treatment that could effectively kill COVID-19, in what’s been dubbed an “important missing piece” in the arsenal against the virus.

Nigel McMillan and his team from the Menzies Health Institute at Griffith University, alongside scientists from City of Hope research centre in the US, say the “next-generation” antiviral approach could stop the virus from replicating in the lungs.

Professor McMillan said stage one clinical trials revealed the antiviral treatment reduced the viral load in mice lungs by 99.99 per cent.

I just spotted that France is planning on opening up bars etc. With their daily case rates at about 10 times that of the UK (20k vs. 2k per day), and similar population size (65 millionish), I can't see that going too well for the shape of their curve, but let's hope I'm wrong

Maybe they just want to move onto the 6m+ case clubhouse before Russia enters the 5m+ case clubhouse?

Did you also notice that India claimed the title of the most daily deaths recorded from the U.S.? :-O

But given the population of India is three or four times that of the USA it's a sad indictment of the USA :-(

Is it a sad indictment of the USA, or an indication that the Indian counts are far below the expected level.
The per capita number of deaths in the US and a lot of countries, including most of Europe, is somewhere between one and two thousand per million. And where the spread in part can be because each country uses different criteria to judge whether a death is covid related.
The U.S.A is not at the top of that list, but it could be higher or lower if a Federal standard were used, because each State has its own definition

The Indian per capita number is only about 200 per million, probably about a tenth of the expected number.

If the Indian numbers are correct then India shouldn't be the focus of attention as other countries have higher weekly trends, mainly in South America.

Weekly trends can be seen at the worldometers covid site.

By the end of the last reporting period the world's total case tally had passed 165.5 million while deaths passed 3,431,100. :-(

The changes at the top end of the death list sees Egypt bumping Sweden from 33rd place while Ukraine bumped Indonesia out of 17th and Argentina booted Poland from 13th so it's now onto the case list changes.

Well Taiwan has been on a long distance flight as they moved from 191st spot up to 180th as they quickly approach New Zealand while racing Liechtenstein (178th) to be next to enter the 3K+ clubhouse, Vietnam (169th) has had a bit of a stumble in chasing down Timor-Leste who has now passed Saint Lucia and Chad to take over 166th as P.N.G. slipped past Mali into 138th, Trinidad/Tobago replaced Guadeloupe in 134th, Cambodia passed Guinea and became the 127th member of the 23K+ club while Australia looks to hold onto 121st a bit longer and join the 30K+ club before Cabo Verde comes along, Angola jumped over both Malta and the D.R.C. to claim 118th and the Maldives dived past both the Ivory Coast as well as Jamaica into 109th.

Mongolia became the 108th member of the 50K+ club, Cyprus and El Salvador are battling it out over 100th place as Finland become the 98th country to enter the 90K+ clubhouse and now has China within its sights, Thailand deposed of Kyrgyzstan to take 91st as well as becoming the 92nd member of the 100K+ club while Cuba jumped over Algeria and Estonia to land in 87th, S. Korea knocked Albania from 84th and Sri Lanka plucked Myanmar out of 82nd.

Kenya bumped Nigeria out of 79th, Bahrain displaced Bosnia/Herzegovina in 76th while Uruguay powered past Guatemala and Egypt to take over 68th spot, Denmark and Lithuania both overtook Ethiopia to claim 62nd & 63rd respectively as Japan swept Switzerland out of 36th and Germany has retaken 9th spot after passing Spain.

Anyhow that's enough for this update.

I was rather hoping that Taiwan had the pandemic subdued. Hopefully their jump in cases is not a case of complacency creeping in...?

Meanwhile over in the UK, we've seen the case numbers here beautifully creep down to below the 2000/day mark, until that is we have now eased the main parts of the lockdown restrictions and it looks like the case numbers were already creeping back upwards in anticipation...

Here's hoping we win the race to get everyone vaccinated in time!

No surprise there. If one can lie about the election being stolen, there should be no problems to lie about being vaccinated.
Fear of demographics change seems to be all that's needed to throw truth, democracy, decency, and normal behaviour to he**

Edit: If there's going to be more of "them", than of "us", then we have no longer any interest in democracy.

And so, the U.S experiment failed, and ended......


Is Great Replacement "Theory" going to be a topic allowed, here?
Besides, posters that can't be named can't link it to vaccines, give the demographics of vaccine hesitancy.
Capitalize on this good fortune, one word can bring you round ... changes.

India has now reopened 26m+ case clubhouse while it looks like that Russia will joining the 5m+ case clubhouse before France leaves now that France has upgraded their info system and found that they had over calculated their case total by 364,261 which have now been removed. The U.K. also did the same as France, but only 180 cases have been removed from their total.

Taiwan flew right past New Zealand (now 180th) and is fast approaching tiny little Liechtenstein and membership to the 3K+ case club. Timor-Leste became the 166th member of the 5K+ case club while removing San Marino from 165th. Equatorial Guinea also became the 158th member of the 8K+ case club and replacing Benin in 157th spot. P.N.G. is now enjoying farewell drinks in the 14K+ case club after displacing Somalia from 137th. Cambodia passed Reunion to take over 126th with Syria now within its sights.

Meanwhile Australia looks to become the 121st member of the 30K+ case club with just 3 more cases now required to get there. The Maldives have become the 109th member of the 50K+ case club while also passing Mongolia to claim 108th. Finland became the 98th member of the 90K+ case club and squeezed past China to reclaim 97th spot. Slovenia had to give up 67th place to Uruguay as Costa Rica replaced Kuwait in 59th while Tunisia took 55th from Azerbaijan and Hungary became the 32nd country to enter the 800K+ clubhouse.

Black fungus: Call to declare epidemic in Indian states
wrote:
India's states should declare an epidemic following a rise in deadly "black fungus" cases, the country's health authorities has said.

The normally rare infection, called mucormycosis, has a mortality rate of 50%...

But in recent months, India saw thousands of cases affecting recovered and recovering Covid-19 patients.

Doctors suspect there may be a link with the steroids used to treat Covid. Diabetics are at particular risk, ... it seems to strike 12 to 15 days after recovery from Covid...

Covid-19: What went wrong in Singapore and Taiwan?
wrote:
They've been hailed as virus success stories - places that have seen virtually zero or single-digit Covid cases since the start of the year. But this month, Singapore and Taiwan have both seen a sudden and aggressive rise in cases...

... Both places have gone into a heightened state of restrictions, limiting the size of social gatherings and closing schools...

... A tale of complacency...

... Taiwan relaxed its quarantine requirements for non-vaccinated airline pilots from an initial 14-day period, to five days - and then, just three days. Shortly afterwards, a cluster broke out connected to a handful of China Airlines pilots who had been staying at a Novotel near Taoyuan Airport. Many of those linked to this cluster were later found to have contracted the UK variant, known as B.1.1.7. The virus then spread through the community...

... "It just reminds us that even when a very small proportion of the population breaks the rules, it will lead to leakages,"...

... by late May, Singapore's Changi Airport - which also boasts a popular shopping centre - had turned into the country's biggest Covid cluster this year. Authorities later found out that a number of infected airport staff had been working in a zone that received travellers from high-risk countries... Some of these workers then went on to have their meals in the airport's food courts - which are open to members of the public - further spreading the virus...

... There is one problem that's plaguing both Singapore and Taiwan: vaccines. Many in Taiwan didn't want to take the vaccine when things were going well...

... The current rise in cases however, means that people in Taiwan are now flocking to get the vaccine. The only problem is - there isn't enough to go around...

... "When we see countries in Europe, or the US starting to relax measures, I think they should be very cautious and look around the world to see what is happening," he said. "What's happened in Taiwan, Singapore - it's a sign that we should not let our guard down."


Covid: Why has Seychelles seen rising case numbers?
wrote:
The Seychelles has vaccinated more people per head against Covid-19 than any other country, but has experienced a spike in cases...

... We do know that about two-thirds of those who tested positive largely had mild or no symptoms ... Of those who needed admission to hospital, 80% were people who hadn't been vaccinated, and a majority of these also had other health conditions...

... the rise in cases could be as a result of increased economic activity. Restrictions were relaxed in March, including the reopening of restaurants and the resumption of school classes. Officials have also suggested Easter celebrations may have contributed, along with people dropping their guard...




Here's hoping we win the race to get everyone vaccinated in time!
