Seafood lovers beware.

Oysters recalled after norovirus outbreak sickens at least 211 people.

Over 200 people have been sickened by a norovirus outbreak linked to raw oysters from Texas, causing the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to issue a recall and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to open an investigation into the mollusks. 

The CDC on Thursday announced that it is working in partnership with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the DSHS and other public health partners to find the cause of the outbreak. The DSHS issued a recall for the affected oysters, and the FDA shared an advisory warning. 

The contaminated oysters were harvested in the southeastern portion of Galveston Bay from Nov. 17 to Dec. 7, the DSHS said. The recall includes both shucked and shelled oysters. The area from which the oysters originated was closed to harvesting on Dec. 8, after reports of illnesses started coming in from parts of Texas and Florida....

A third supermarket has been added to the list of sites where a toxic batch of spinach has been recalled after almost 50 people fell ill after eating it....

China Covid: Health expert predicts three {deadly} winter waves

We have multiple deadly consequences...


Ambulance strike: Blame game escalates between unions and ministers


Note that "Blame Games" never work.

People will unnecessarily die. My view is that the Ministers and Management have completely failed on this one despite heroic positive efforts by the health workers who are keeping the NHS and people alive despite the ongoing abuse against them. No surprise that, for my own good health, I do not work in the health service!


And continuing the unbelievable mantra of "Don't Look Up.":

Absence rates across schools in England rose sharply at the start of December as more pupils missed class due to illness...

... The proportion of children off sick rose to 7.5% in the week commencing 5 December - up from 6.1% the previous week and 2.6% at the start of the term...

... A head teachers' union said it was "concerning" for health and education...



China's hospitals seem to be filling up - WHO

... China figures show no-one died of Covid on Wednesday but there is scepticism [of that figure]...

... The German vaccines are to be administered initially to expats in China - estimated to be about 20,000.

It is the first foreign Covid-19 vaccine to be delivered to China, although no details have been released about the time or the size of the delivery. Last month during a visit to Beijing, Chancellor Olaf Scholz pressed for the vaccine to be made freely available to Chinese citizens as well.


China Covid: 'Everyone I know is getting a fever'

A sudden lifting of many of China's Covid restrictions has caused nationwide outbreaks - as well as confusion and anger on social media.

Amid a severe shortage of rapid test kits, several provinces like Zhejiang and Anhui, as well as Chongqing, are implementing a new policy that allows people with mild symptoms or no symptoms to go back to work.

On Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter, the hashtag related to this announcement has been read 33 million times since Monday. There is shock and fury.

"There has been no preparation in the past three years, and all of a sudden the restrictions are lifted and you are allowed to go to work while ill - our lives are worthless like ants,"...





Are those signs of good planning or good leadership or a good care of people?

Don't wait too long.

U.S., other countries consider limitations on Chinese travelers.

As Italian officials state that Nearly half of passengers from China to Milan have COVID.

With a surge of Chinese tourists expected in the new year China's COVID wave will likely turn worldwide.

... The Chinese government is reporting about 5,000 cases a day, but analysts say such numbers are vastly undercounted - and the daily caseload may be closer to one million. The true toll of daily cases and deaths in China is unknown as officials have stopped requiring cases to be reported, and changed classifications...

... "Trying to ban a virus by adjusting what we do with travel has already been shown not to work very well. We've seen that with the bans on travel from various countries during the pandemic, that hasn't stopped those viruses travelling around the world eventually."

But there is concern that more infections can provide more opportunities for the virus to mutate...

... In recent days, a number of hospitals have declared critical incidents, suggesting they cannot function as usual because of extraordinary pressure.

Senior doctors have described the NHS as on a knife edge, with some accident and emergency units in a "complete state of crisis".

It comes as the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has reiterated the importance of people wearing masks if they are ill and need to go out. The UKHSA has also asked parents to keep children off school if they have a fever. There have been sharp rises in the numbers of people in hospital with Covid and flu in recent weeks - about one in eight beds in England is now occupied by patients with these infections...

... Prof Phil Banfield, who chairs the British Medical Association, which represents doctors, called on the government to "step up and take immediate action".

The situation was "intolerable and unsustainable", he said, with the NHS's survival on a knife edge and patients needlessly dying because of a political choice...

Indeed a deadly political choice... Who profits?

Judge for yourselves for your own good health:


Note that this is in the extreme of the unhealthy confines of a prison (penitentiary):

COVID-19 vaccines, {and also} prior infection reduce transmission of omicron...
wrote:
Vaccination and boosting, especially when recent, helped to limit the spread of COVID-19 in California prisons during the first omicron wave...

... demonstrates the benefits of vaccination and boosting, even in settings where many people are still getting infected, in reducing transmission. And it shows the cumulative effects from boosting and the additional protection that vaccination gives to those who were previously infected. The likelihood of transmission fell by 11% for each additional dose.

"A lot of the benefits of vaccines to reduce infectiousness were from people who had received boosters and people who had been recently vaccinated,"...

... Breakthrough infections were common, despite the residents' relatively high vaccination rate of 81% with the primary vaccine series. But the rate of serious illness was low. In just over five months, there were 22,334 confirmed SARS-CoV-2 omicron infections, 31 hospitalizations and no COVID-19 deaths.

Vaccinated residents with breakthrough infections were significantly less likely to transmit [further infection]...


Autopsies show COVID-19 virus in brain, {and} elsewhere in body
wrote:
... tissue samples from the autopsies of 44 people who died with COVID-19 shows that SAR-CoV-2 virus spread throughout the body—including into the brain—and that it lingered for almost eight months...

... All of the patients died with COVID-19, and none were vaccinated...

... SARS-CoV-2, as expected, primarily infected and damaged airway and lung tissue. But the researchers also found viral RNA in 84 distinct body locations and bodily fluids, and in one case they isolated viral RNA 230 days after a patient's symptoms began...

... "the thinking in the field was that SARS-CoV-2 was predominantly a respiratory virus." Finding viral presence throughout the body—and sharing those findings with colleagues a year ago—helped scientists explore a relationship between widely infected bodily tissues and "long COVID," or symptoms that persist for weeks and months after infection...


Monitoring heart measures via smartwatches shows COVID booster vaccine is safe
wrote:
... equipped close to 5,000 [people] with smartwatches and monitored their physiological parameters over two years. Of those monitored, 2,038 received the booster dose of the coronavirus vaccine, allowing the researchers to objectively compare measures before and after the participants took the vaccine...

... In addition ... the researchers examined the safety of the booster by analyzing the medical files of 250,000 people...

... "We saw clear and significant changes after administration of the vaccine, such as an increase in heart rate compared to the pulse rate measured before vaccination, and then we saw a return to the participant's baseline, i.e., the pulse [rate] after vaccination returned to their previous levels after six days. Hence, our study confirms the safety of the vaccine,"...

... "the most surprising finding was that the watches were more sensitive than the people they were monitoring. Many participants reported fatigue, headache, etc. after receiving the vaccine, and after two or three days reported that they felt normal and well. In contrast, from examining their watches, we saw distinct changes in heart rate that continued for several more days. There were also vaccinated participants who did not report any side effects at all and yet definitely experienced physiological changes, based on data from their smartwatches. In other words, we learned that the smartwatches were more sensitive to changes in general feeling than the participants themselves."...

... In the medical literature, 25 unusual side effects attributed to the COVID vaccine [are] reported, and the researchers paid special attention to look for [these] rare cases ... checked the frequency of these unusual side effects among a quarter of a million [people] and found no increase in serious incidents of any kind associated with vaccination...



So... As confirmed... Some chances are far greater than other chances and you can choose for yourself to vastly improve your chances.

Worldwide, we now have multiple vaccines against covid that are beautifully well tested for real out in the real world.

... So why do we have so many Chinese and others elsewhere in the world still unprotected?!...
