Thanks for that, Doc. I must admit to have scrolled very quickly through the ‘debate’ on vaccines. I’ve had AZ so reassuring to know I’m still wuite protected. Bubbles bursting in schools around my area, closer and closer acquaintances and colleagues isolating due to contracting Covid. We ARE a long way off
I’d feel happier knowing I had an SNG treatment in MY fridge!
We have a high vaccination rate but a large portion of that is AZ vaccine, not just Pfizer. AZ is much less effective against the Delta variant. This may be why even double vaccinated, we will continue to have rising cases of infection and hospitalisation.
Infected with more than one variant simultaneously11 Jul 2021 08:08
One 90 year old died after being infected with 2 variants; one Portuguese 17 year old caught a second variant whilst recovering from a first infection, two Brazilians with simultaneous infection of gamma and another variant. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-57761343
I know these numbers are small, but these are the known ones. Crikey. SNG can't come online fast enough.

Covid-19: a "mobile" trial to treat patients at home and avoid hospitalization
The Coverage clinical trial is evaluating two treatments, including inhaled interferon, in at-risk patients with severe, early-stage disease, with a visiting medical team. Meeting with the @CNGE_France teams study partners.
I only briefly watched the video and like anything else on the internet, it is worth checking the background of the interviewee or informer. I try not to take what is said online at face value. My first query was - who is he, what is his background. Is any of what he says true or a liberal use of facts? Haven't had a chance to check though not even sure I am bothered too. It IS fox news!
...a Washington Post-ABC News poll released on Sunday found that 86% of Democrats but only 45% of Republicans have received at least one shot... Fauci told NBC that of nearly 10,000 US deaths in June, “about 99.2% are unvaccinated. About 0.8% are vaccinated. No vaccine is perfect. But when you talk about the avoidability of hospitalisation and death, it’s really sad and tragic that most of these are avoidable and preventable.
Exactly Andy. Long Covid is a result of the complications to a weakened body from Covid, resulting in a multitude of different symptoms. Stopping the virus from first weakening the body will greatly reduce incidences of long covid.
I think back to the last RNS with the two profs. Although it caused a temporary price dip, the (bio?) marker that came out of that is potentially extremely explosive. 1) Covid19 is going to be with us forever. 2) Vaccinnation will not work against all variants nor are we likely to reach herd immunity - assuming that would even work 3) No country can afford to keep going into lockdown - the population will not accept this 4) Likewise no country can afford to treat all its population with expensive medication to combat Covid19
However, with the VERY SIMPLE assessment of breathlessness, SNG can be targeted to individuals who need it. This, once confirmed by the Phase 3 trials (SG018 and Activ2/3), is incredibly powerful. RM said he was targeting 10% of those infected with Covid. 10% of any portion of a country's population is a huge amount. ££££
No surprise that the black fungal problem is now a concern worldwide. Imagine if we have an agnostic antiviral that stops the lung getting badly infected in the first place.
“ But the combination of lungs battered by Covid, impaired immune systems, and both good and bad bacteria wiped out by antibiotics left critically ill patients exposed to moulds and spores.
“It’s an unfortunate perfect storm for these organisms, and we’re seeing it,” said Dr Tom Chiller, chief of the Mycotic Diseases Branch at the US-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”
