Where did the Coronavirus 19 originate from? and anything relative to the virus.

 

Coronavirus is 'uniquely adapted to infect humans': Top vaccine scientist says it could only have come from an animal through a 'freak of nature' - and the possibility it leaked from Wuhan lab MUST be investigated 

 

Scientists have produced evidence that the pandemic virus is 'uniquely adapted to infect humans', raising fresh questions over whether its origins were natural or could have occurred in a laboratory.

North Korea is being put into a national lockdown, with state media saying the country is facing its "biggest emergency incident" after officially confirming its first COVID-19 outbreak. North Korea previously claimed a perfect record in keeping out COVID-19.

Leader Kim Jong Un ordered all cities and counties to "strictly lock down" after the BA.2 Omicron variant was detected in Pyongyang, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

Full story.

South Australia's health system will expand its capacity to tackle a growing number of long COVID cases, with dedicated clinics established to treat what is now being described by some as a "pandemic" in its own right

Four clinics for people with long-term effects of the virus have opened across metropolitan Adelaide, at the Royal Adelaide, Queen Elizabeth and Women's and Children's hospitals, and Flinders Medical Centre.

The clinics are designed to help people who are still experiencing significant symptoms three months after infection, such as fatigue, body aches, shortness of breath and brain fog.

Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) infectious diseases expert Renjy Nelson — who helped to develop the state's long COVID plan — said the condition was defined as having "symptoms at least 12 weeks after the acute infection, lasting for at least two months without an alternative explanation".

"Long COVID is certainly an entity we need to be aware of — it's in fact actually now even being addressed as the 'long COVID pandemic' because of the sheer number," Dr Nelson said.

"We know there's over 2 to 3 million people around the world who are suffering from long COVID.

"We commonly see people with breathlessness — people who are high achievers who were very fit prior to this now finding themselves not able to climb a flight of stairs."

Dr Nelson said the new clinics included neurologists, neuropsychologists, cardiologists, respiratory physicians, rheumatologists and immunologists.

"We started putting together a group of clinicians when we first started seeing patients from the Ruby Princess who, even six months after their infection, continued to remain unwell," he said.

On Tuesday, SA Health reported 3,683 new infections and the deaths of three women aged from their 70s to their 90s.

There were 222 people in hospital, six of whom were in intensive care and one on a ventilator.

Deputy Chief Public Health Officer Emily Kirkpatrick said the growing prevalence of long COVID should act as a strong incentive for eligible South Australians to get their third vaccine dose.

"We already know from the early data that having three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will reduce your risk of developing long COVID," she said.

Wow - Western Australia is certainly copping it. My younger sister had only 2 vaccines and was about to get her 3rd when she came down with Covid. She had Bronchitis as well so her recovery took longer, she is now fully recovered but went to see her Doctor saying she seems to be forgetting things lately so he has ordered her to have a scan to see if there is  any underlining condition, It seems the after effects of Covid presents differently in patients. 

Yes Hola

Brain Fog for is quite common after effect of Covid 19

Just look at our politicians.

Ha ha , they all seem to suffer from it.

More.

She has been in isolation since last Sunday, when her partner Clarke Gayford tested positive. Ms Ardern also said on Saturday that her daughter Neve had tested positive on Wednesday.

It is understandable RnR - I've noticed from your stats, the rates in NZ rising.

Australia led the world in per-capita COVID infections according to global databases. On Friday 54,591 cases were reported across Australia, on the back two consecutive days of about 58,000 cases, with Western Australia bracing for new infection records. Hospitalisations and deaths are also tracking upwards, with the average number of COVID-related daily deaths hitting 40, doubling since March. 

According to University of Melbourne epidemiologist Nancy Baxter, the numbers may get worse. "We're at a point where COVID is now one of the major killers of Australians, and probably by the end of the year is going to be one of the top three. And with increasing case numbers, new sub-variants will be coming in. This may drive it even further, which would have a bigger impact." she told the ABC.

Full ABC story.

Six Victorians have rolled up their sleeves to become human test subjects for two brand-new Melbourne-made COVID-19 vaccines. The inoculations have been developed by the Doherty Institute and Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences.They are administered as a fourth dose and are designed to be more effective against new strains of COVID-19. The first is the Doherty's traditional protein-based inoculation, while Monash is trialling a newer mRNA vaccine.Both will target the tip of the COVID-19 spike protein, the dangerous part of the virus that infiltrates cells.  

Good news Suze. Hope it proves worthwhile.
