Mu Variant

Columbia has detected Mu since January 2021 and has recently been the subject of various articles. Examining the data on variants in Columbia, it can be seen that Delta is actually outcompeting Mu, meaning that it is unlikely that Mu reaches global dominance. [1]

Εμβόλια κατά Δέλτα

Το εμβόλιο της Pfizer/BioNTech αποδείχθηκε περίπου ~88% αποτελεσματικό προς την εμφάνιση συμπτωμάτων για τον ιό τύπου Δέλτα (B 1.617.2 aka India variant), ενώ το εμβόλιο Oxford/Astrazeneca ~60%. [1]

Όπως και με προηγούμενες μεταλλάξεις, αυτά τα αποτελέσματα συμφωνούν με την εικόνα που παρουσιάζουν τα επίπεδα αντισωμάτων εμβολιασμένων ασθενών…

Vaccines vs Delta

The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine has been shown to be ~88% effective against symptomatic disease against Delta (B 1.617.2 aka India variant), whereas the Oxford/Astrazeneca vaccine showed ~60% efficacy. [1]

As with previous strains, this correlates well with neutralising antibody titres. [2]

Antibodies generated from the J&J vaccine were…

What kinds of clots are we dealing with

They are not due to thickness of blood per se, but related to an immune response (read on for specifics). Antibodies cause the platelets to clump together, which leads to clots.

They are called Vaccine-induced Prothrombotic Immune Thrombocytopenia (VPIT), which is a…

Samples of blood from patients who have received two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (BNT162b2) were collected by researchers. The antibodies in these are able to neutralise all the major currently circulating variants of SARS-CoV-2.

The UK (B.1.1.7) and Brazilian (P.1) variants show no or a modest reduction in effectiveness…
