Merck releases its tablet which they say is very good (in competition with Pfizer).

I did not find much on how it works. odd.

Also note it is packing in the jab research. Wonder why?

I think more will be revealed in due course.


Question - which do you prefer?

Quarterly Jabs at say £20 per jab or £80 per year.

Weekly tablets at £10 a tablet, £520 per year?

Population of IOM say 80,000 x 70% uptake, = 56,000 participants.

Cost to IOM govt:

Jabs $4.48 mill

Tabs £29.1 mill

(Do not forget the cost of tests, and all the rest).

Merck & Co.’s Covid-19 antiviral drug, molnupiravir, appears to inhibit several major variants of the virus, including the highly contagious delta strain, according to early stage data presented by the company at an infectious disease conference early Wednesday.

We live in interesting times.

Approaching rapidly are three (and more) tablets for treating Covid:

Pfizer - a protease inhibitor

Merck now has two - Molnupiravir, disrupts replication by introducing replication errors (Is this ok?)

Todos - Tollovir, another protease inhibitor.

All of these are undergoing trials pending approval next Spring. Note there are other drugs which inhibit protease, not specifically approved for covid.


There appear to be a number of "breakout infections" with the jab, and some adverse side effects. See local news.

The jabs/vax are only approved for emergency use as allegedly nothing else works.

Next Spring there will be a choice of preventative and therapeutic treatments. The EUA for the jab will no longer stand as other treatments are likely to be approved. My previous post raised the matter of cost.

We live in interesting times.

You don't seem to see vaccinated people gathering to abuse those who haven't been vaccinated, and accusing them of "raping" their children. Shocking stuff, i feel so much for the children (and parents!)

 

Facebook has a lot to answer for, its the main source of "research and information" they all seem to believe / follow

They don't do their cause much good by these public displays. I'm vaxed but I don't care if someone else isn't. I don't feel the need to tell them what to do with their life so likewise I don't appreciate someone shouting and jumping up and down giving me information I can get from a 5 minute internet search. 

As it happens I agree we shouldn't be vaccinating kids such is the risk/benefit but I don't need a leaflet to tell me that.

Regardless of which side of the argument you happen to be on regarding covid vax for kids, what these protesters are doing is abhorrent.

They claim to want to protect children but what they're doing is terrorising them. In one of the clips a little boy has his hands clamped over his ears, and is clearly frightened as are most of the little ones. If shouting and screaming, accusing parents of raping and abusing their children in front of young primary school aged kids isn't terroristic, I don't fucking know what is.
