Data sources

This is a list of some of the main data sources we use:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Probably the best source of the latest COVID-19 statistics

https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Tomas Pueyo has written a number of very good summaries of the strategies to overcome coronavirus

https://www.capitaleconomics.com/the-economic-effects-of-the-coronavirus/ Good source of fast-moving China economic stats.

https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ If you want to be bombarded with every breaking news story, this is the place

https://ncov.dxy.cn/ncovh5/view/pneumonia  Faster than worldometers for Chinese data, but slower on rest of the world data. I don’t think China cases matter anymore.

https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports I’m less enamoured of the WHO data now than I was at the start of the crisis. They are providing less information now than they were at the start of the crisis, and it sometimes contradicts country-level data.

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 The prettiest pictures, but one of the slower sites to update. I don’t find the charts that useful.

  1. So, reasons why you want a nice dumb old vaccine instead of a you beaut new one…………..the spike protein proceeds after the initial stage to go deeper into the vascular system.

    This has consequences for the action of many of the present vaccines which were produced before these ideas could be considered

      The researchers next hope to take a closer look at the mechanism by which the disrupted ACE2 protein damages mitochondria and causes them to change shape.

      Nasty.

        Interesting research article. To take a spike protein based vaccine or not… at this point after reading the article the answer is “not”. At least not for the next 5 years until the consequences of taking apparently cell modifying vaccines are clear. Certainly would avoid it for as long as possible. If the suggested potential consequence of pulmonary hypertension from the current vaccines comes true, then it could spell the end of some nations that have vaccinated early.
        On the other hand just catching the virus could then also have the same effect. So on second thoughts… doomed if you do and doomed if you don’t.

  2. “There was a misreading of the situation in January that we had attained herd immunity and were unlikely to see a second wave” – K Srinath Reddy, president, Public Health Foundation of India

    WARNING: Misuse of the “herd immunity” idea is dangerous!

    With currant hindsight.

    Many people wanted a magic solution with vaccines, so they needed the “herd immunity” idea. They fought tooth and nail against any evidence of reinfection since Jan 2020 (since this also messes with the “magic vaccine” and “herd immunity” concepts).

    Problems:
    (1) Covid vaccines are NOT like mumps/measles/polio vaccines. Since Covid mutates very quickly, Covid vaccines are like flu vaccines.

    (2) We’ve been vaccinating for flu for 80+ years (since the 1930s-1940s), with no “herd immunity” in sight.

    (3) Some communities had 87% and 94% seropositivity to Covid (antibodies measured at 87% and 94%, but they might be cross-reactive antibodies from “common cold” coronaviruses or other viruses)…and still had massive infection waves.

    No “herd immunity” at 87% and 94% (The seropositivity numbers may overestimate the Covid infection percentage. Also the sample size might have been too small.

    ——
    Reality
    (4) Covid vaccines will save lots of lives (while hurting and killing some people). They are one of many tools to fight Covid. They are not a magic solution.

      No herd immunity and risks with vaccines means the best solution for many remains being as healthy as possible and using the immune system to decrease severity.

      • Vax is only one tool in a kit, but it all needs to be used.

        The header is clear about what triggered the event and then one only has to remember those around MB early on driving the same agenda, not to mention the ideological foundation which its premised on. Which then begs the question what other stuff this methodology mangles … but becomes the order of the day …

        Covid just is a spot light on it in real time for all the unwashed to see ….
