~*Official #COVID-19 Thread of Doom*~


Recommended Posts

My local dumbass news station run by Meredith Corp decided to air this ridiculous story about some woman who "became paralyzed" after getting the Pfizer shot:

 

https://www.wsmv.com/news/woman-lies-paralyzed-in-nashville-hospital-says-it-happened-after-she-received-pfizer-vaccine/article_78f1b8fa-a4a0-11eb-af84-3311a4f153c0.html?block_id=994460

 

Quote

Unable to move from the neck down, her husband took her to the emergency room at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Six days later, she remained in the hospital, and said a CT scan, MRI, EMG, and blood work all returned nothing unusual. Mcfadden told News4 she is epileptic but said this was not a seizure.

 

Quote

News4 does not have medical confirmation that this event was related to the Pfizer vaccine. Vanderbilt University Medical Center declined to comment.

 

Pfizer sent in a comment that basically said "we didn't identify paralysis as a thing that happens."

 

 

The video is wild too because the anchors are covering this story with phrases like "we don't want to cause alarm" or "we believe it's important to cover all sides!"

They then dug into the self-reported reaction database that people can fill in all on their own and that resulted in 7 out of 16 million doses. And it was all punctuated with "the vaccine is safe and effective. Covid has killed far more."

 

 

And if that was it... why fucking run the story in the first place?

The lady is epileptic. She says she didn't have a seizure, but I'm pretty sure post-seizure paralysis is totally a thing.  Like... Don't run the fucking story if it's just going to be interpreted as "the vaccine might paralyze you."

I found out yesterday a lady died in my company after getting her vaccine. Sounds she got the first shot and went out and partied. She contracted COVID and died 3 weeks later.  Be safe until the vaccine kicks in.

Sounds like you phrased this in a way to further piss @CayceG off. :p

The exact moment Trump came up with the idea of injecting people with disinfectants and UV light.

As they lay dying in the streets i am sure they will give a fuck.

 

Dude, they are enemies and SinoVac has really low efficacy 

 

Also important to note that India isn't even asking for vaccine donations from the US. They just want the ban on raw materials to be lifted so they have the means to produce more of their own vaccine. Shit is unbelievably fucked.

China's Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine was 67% effective in preventing symptomatic infection, data from a huge real-world study inChile has shown, a potential boost for the jab which has come under scrutiny over its level of protection against the virus.

 

Actually it's more effective than I had thought! Still, it's extremely low efficacy after one dose (16%) combined with China and India being enemies leads me to think that China's recent offer to help the country isn't going to amount to much.

 

Edit: Unless they give them raw materials to start producing more vaccines. That would be a game changer.

China's Foreign Ministry said it's "ready to provide support and help according to India's need, and is in communication" with the country, and the White House said the U.S. "is working closely with Indian officials at both political and experts level to identify ways to help address the crisis."

"The COVID-19 pandemic is a common enemy of all mankind that necessitates international solidarity and mutual assistance," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said.

This is an easy way to win over a monster pop country to your side against the US, enemy be damned

That thumbnail is giving me one clue about what might be happening over there.

It prevents symptomatic infection in 2/3rds of cases. That’s not really low!

I was going off of the poor first dose efficacy and the fact that China itself said the vaccine had low efficacy a few days ago. I then found the numbers out of Chile and posted that. But still, those first dose numbers are awful.

I think we should give the vaccines to India and others, but this is borderline bonkers to basically say America "owes" India these doses.
