Home Health Wellness Wellness on January 18, 2022 An Israeli hospital said on January 17 that preliminary research indicates a fourth dose of the coronavirus vaccine provides only limited defense against the Omicron variant that is raging around the world. Sheba Hospital last month began administering a fourth vaccine to more than 270 medical workers — 154 who received a Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine and 120 others who received Moderna's. All had previously been vaccinated three times with the Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine. The clinical trial found that both groups showed an increase in antibodies “slightly higher” than following the third vaccine last year. But it said the increased antibodies did not prevent the spread of Omicron. “Despite increased antibody levels, the fourth vaccine only offers a partial defence against the virus,” said Dr Gili Regev-Yochay, director of the hospital's infection disease unit. “The vaccines, which were … [Read more...] about COVID Vaccine 4th Dose Shows Limited Results With Omicron, Says Study In Israel

Home Health Health on January 18, 2022 Hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug controversially touted as a cure for COVID despite a lack of robust evidence, is creating renewed interest as a potential treatment for omicron. The discussion has been sparked by a new study from the University of Glasgow, which is yet to be published in a scientific journal, that looks at how antibodies from vaccines block omicron from entering cells. The researchers conclude, as many others have, that antibodies (the proteins that neutralise the virus) against previous variants or induced by vaccines are less effective against omicron. What's interesting, though, is that the study finds that omicron may have changed the way it enters cells. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID, is coated in a lipid bilayer (a thin membrane made of two layers) just like our cells. When the virus enters our cells, the bilayers fuse like oil droplets on the … [Read more...] about Omicron: Is Anti-Malaria Drug Hydroxychloroquine Really Effective Against The COVID Variant?
Home Health Health on January 19, 2022 Giving a clarion call to world leaders to make 2022 a "true moment of recovery", UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday said that the Covid-19 pandemic has to be confronted with equity and fairness, cautioning that failure to vaccinate every person will give rise to new variants that will bring daily life and economies to a grinding halt. Guterres, in his virtual remarks to the opening of the 2022 World Economic Forum (WEF), said: "The last two years have demonstrated a simple but brutal truth - if we leave anyone behind, we leave everyone behind". He gave a clarion call to "stand together to make 2022 a true moment of recovery." Noting that the global event is taking place in the shadow of an "enormously difficult" period for economies, people and the planet, Guterres urged the international community, especially the global businesses, that "we need all hands on deck" for … [Read more...] about Failure To Vaccinate Everyone Will Give Rise To New Variants: UN Chief
Home Health Health on January 16, 2022 A 26-year-old BESCOM lineman, while working Devarabeesanahalli in Bengaluru was accidentally electrocuted and was brought to the Sakra World Hospital Emergency by his colleagues and the police on the morning of 2 December 2022. There was no heartbeat when he arrived at the emergency department. His heart was affected by an abnormal rhythm called Ventricular Fibrillation, where the electrical activity of the heart becomes erratic and uncontrolled, and the heart muscle fails to contract with its usual synchrony effectively stopping the heart. In victims of electrocution, this is could be one of the causes of instant death. When the heart stops the brain is starved of oxygen and there are only minutes left before it begins to undergo irreversible cell death. Survivors of cardiac arrests like this, often land in a vegetative state, especially if CPR was late and the brain was deprived of oxygen for too long. … [Read more...] about What Is Ventricular Fibrillation?
