Colin has plenty of cash to pay his electric bill dsaf he’s been creaming a £200k a year salary or whatever it is. He’s not the right man for the job as the latest and past presentations have proved he’s no leader and has cost us money over promising and not delivering at all.
RE: Omicron: ~8-fold Rise in Hospital CasesFri 22:31
“South Africa's daily Covid cases soar 467% in a week with 16,055 new infections and hospital admissions surge 365% to 279 amid Omicron wave - as country warns its R rate could be 3.5“
“ Public health experts in South Africa and the WHO have insisted cases are only mild and vaccines should still be highly effective against the strain, despite a lack of data. But UK Health Security Agency epidemiologist Meaghan Kall warns that data currently suggests Omicron may be 'worse' than Delta.”
Also worth bearing in mind most hospitalisations happen 10-12 days after first being infected so it’s still too early in most countries who have only just started seeing Omicron. The percentage of Covid cases in general that result in hospitalisation is around 2% I think, so wouldn’t expect any severe cases yet.
Hopefully it turns out to be really mild, but going by what’s unfolding in South Africa it doesn’t look like it.
We have near on £5M cash / bank facility of £2M / plus we have the £2M plus off the DHSC we have yet to put on the balance sheet , put aside the possibility of the £600,000 from Abingdon ( maybe ).
Just to be clear the £2M is on the ballance sheet with the debt owing to the DHSC for phase 1 on one side and the reciprical payment on the other. However i would expect ODX to be negotiating the repayment for the loan and treat it as a Covid loan with a 4-5 year repayment period. The £2M could then be taken to the P&L and the cash released. I believe this would be material enough to be RNS''d. You would hope that the DHSC would treat the request fairly given the fact that ODX have not been given phase 2 and £374M expectation for the business.
“ Leading HIV and Covid researcher, Prof Penny Moore, says that two pandemics colliding has created a “perfect storm” in South Africa.
Prof Moore, from the National Institute for Communicable Diseases in South Africa, is at the scientific front line of the mission to understand the threat that the Omicron variant poses to the world.
“Unfortunately in South Africa we have a massive HIV pandemic and many, many untreated people,” she told BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science programme.
“When these people have a SARS CoV-2 infection, there’s increased risk they’ll struggle to clear it. The longer a person has an infection, the higher the odds that the virus will pick up a mutation that somehow benefits it.
“This is one plausible explanation for how Omicron - and other variants - emerged.”
Prof Moore added that, wherever Omicron emerged, “it has properties that make it a risk for all of us - whether we're HIV positive or not.
“It was identified in South Africa, but it's now across the world. We see community transmission and transmissions that are not linked to sub-Saharan Africa. Blocking travel to our country makes it more scientifically difficult to tackle this project.”
Prof Moore added that the techniques and platforms developed for HIV research have accelerated scientists’ ability to understand Covid.
“We now need to transfer that sense of urgency back to HIV,” she told the BBC.
You can listen to Professor Moore’s full interview with BBC science correspondent Victoria Gill on Inside Science on BBC Sounds.“
RE: Omicron: ~8-fold Rise in Hospital CasesFri 19:21
That's not the information coming out from SA. There have been cases in SA where double vaccinated individuals still contracted the virus (might be worth looking at the very recent medrxiv paper ).
We can't tell what fuss Omicron is causing here in the UK as we haven't had long enough for the virus to spread and the hospitalisations stats lag approx. 2-3 weeks behind the initial cases. I'm expecting to see those numbers from the 15th Dec onwards.
"The pandemic is over guys or its at the end." the pandemic is not over. Moderna chief Stephane Bancel predicts that existing vaccines will struggle with Omicron and it could be months before the right variant-specific jab is produced at scale (see excellent article in the FT today). Then there is the obvious issue of distribution, vaccine take-up and finally the time it takes for the immune system to provide sufficient protection post-jab. Although he advocates for waiting for the data, he says that all the scientists that he's spoken to have said "This is not going to be good".
There is a minimum of 3-6 months of adapting the vaccine to be relevant towards Omicron, so we could be here for a while.
RE: Omicron: ~8-fold Rise in Hospital CasesFri 19:07
SA arent as advanced as UK are with their vaccines are they.
Omicron not causing a fuss here its largely milder symptoms so great news for the world as we all just want back to normal but obviously that doesnt fit the narrative of what miserable odx investors want to hear. The pandemic is over guys or its at the end. The peak has gone. Omega have well and truly missed, the boat. Even ceo says he doesnt see where demand is coming from and is downscaling focusing on CD4.
Time to get real
There are tons of good quality stocks out there to make ur money back on without trying to ramp newbies into this so u can get out as we all know LTH's are bailing first chance they get
Looking at the reports out of Gauteng (SA), the epicentre of Omicron variant, the hospitalisation has increased dramatically week on week. Compared to 4 weeks ago, there has been a ~8 fold increase in hospitalisations doesn't look as mild as some have suggested. There is a strong need for diagnostics.
I read on one of the other BB’s today that the entire board of a AIM listed company were taking shares as payment in lieu of salary.
Seems like a very good idea so I wrote to Mr King today to see if he is prepared to do this until he delivers on the promises the company made and the share price recovers, or even better step down and let someone more capable take charge.
I do not expect a reply but will update you on this next week.
I suggest others contact the company if you think it’s a good idea.
RE: New Paper on Covid 19 Evading the immune systemFri 17:11
Also heard several high ranking commentators from around the world recently suggesting that we should expect to having vaccinations on at least a yearly basis for the foreseeable future or possibly forever. Covid and testing will be a part of our lives from now on. The sooner they exploit the benefits of LFT’s over PFC’s which have a specific but limited application the better.
New Paper on Covid 19 Evading the immune systemFri 16:51
A paper just published - wee bit heavy - it does appear Covid 19 is going nowhere and testing will around for quite some time
‘A new study models future SARS-CoV-2 mutations and forecasts their ability to evade immune defenses developed by vaccines and antibody-based treatments. Since the study's completion, several of the predicted mutations have appeared in omicron, the most recently identified SARS-CoV-2 variant, offering insight into how omicron might be able to escape immune defense generated by mRNA vaccines and monoclonal antibody treatments for COVID-19
