  1. Vaccine stats from Israel. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9179677/Israeli-healthcare-group-says-coronavirus-infections-plunged-vaccinated-60s.html
  2. I posted this when it was published during the summer. PCR tests at 40 cycles are ridiculous.
  3. Coming soon to this country. It’s just a matter of time. Scientifically, this does make sense. N95 masks required in Germany. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/live-blog/2021-01-20-covid-live-updates-vaccine-news-n1254842/ncrd1254848#blogHeader
  4. Another article for early treatment protocols with therapeutics from the American Journal Medicine published Jan. 1st. https://www.amjmed.com/article/S0002-9343(20)30673-2/fulltext
  5. Convalescent plasma benefits and reduces progression of covid but must be given within the first three days of symptom onset. The article goes on discusses the advantages and difficulties of this treatment. The cost is much less than the antibody treatments but it is harder to get people treated so early. If you are high risk, contact your doctor at symptom onset and see what they can do for you. If you wait until you are really sick, treatment options are more limited. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/06/health/convalescent-plasma-covid.html#click=https://t.co/AQQ
  6. I think people should realize this and not run to the Bishop expecting him to fix problems.
  7. I’ve been seeing the same stories and it seems covid will likely turn flu like with multiple strains and we will need vaccines yearly that guess which strains will appear.
  8. The CDC needs to improve. This article does not fill me with confidence about this agency.
  9. It is the Dailymail but has interesting statistics. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-9173513/2020-set-deadliest-year-U-S-history-3-2-million-total-deaths.html
  10. Any personal stories of vaccine side effects? Fauci said the 2nd dose had more side effects than the first for him. Not severe though. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/health-law-and-business/fauci-says-he-had-brief-side-effects-from-second-vaccine-dose My son’s dentist was fine but his assistant got sick for a week with her first shot.
  11. Both were embarrassing and tragic security failures. “State Department headquarters in Washington did refuse repeated requests from its ambassador for more security personnel. And it decided not to accept an offer from the Defense Department to extend the stay of one of its security units in Libya, reducing the level of security that was available.” https://www.ajc.com/news/national-govt--politics/politifact-security-was-reduced-benghazi/RjfZfO52Dv7D1xISoOeZ1M/ “Even without intelligence from law enforcement, there had been ample warning about pro-Trump demonstrations in Washin
  12. Updated guidance on PCR testing from the WHO. It is not as definitive as most people think. False positives do happen. “Users of IVDs must read and follow the IFU carefully to determine if manual adjustment of the PCR positivity threshold is recommended by the manufacturer. WHO guidance Diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2 states that careful interpretation of weak positive results is needed (1). The cycle threshold (Ct) needed to detect virus is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load. Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen s
  13. I must say, I don't believe this squares with a certain article of faith. I think Joseph Smith was quite wise in making it well known that the Church believes in upholding the 'laws of the land' and being subject to 'kings, rulers, magistrates etc...'
