Coronamonomania Lasts Forever, Part 181

Another study adding to the debunking of long CV-19.  (Lancet Article)   The researchers followed a group of children aged 11 to 17 who had either tested positive for CV-19 or negative, but were not hospitalized.  The follow-up lasted for 12 months and was designed to elicit any long-term symptoms.  For those who reported symptoms a short time after infection, which was a small number, those symptoms were largely gone in later follow-up.  And a similar pattern of symptom reporting was found in the CV-19 positive and negative groups.

This research from Austria tracked a group of children in regard to their health during the epidemic.  It found exercise and consequent cardio-respiratory health declined, and weight problems increased.  The prevalence of these issues declined as the epidemic proceeded, but never returned to pre-epidemic levels.  Yep, lockdowns were really good for children.  (Medrxiv Paper)

Children’s mental health suffered even more than their physical health during the lockdowns.  This study from France and the US found sharp rises in mental health hospitalizations among adolescents, including for suicide attempts or ideation.  (JAMA Article)

And also in the “ignore the greater public health” category this study from England found that people with pancreatic cancer missed screenings and care during the epidemic, potentially leading to worse outcomes.  (Medrxiv Paper)

Heart inflammation has emerged as a clear adverse health event stemming from vaccination of younger males.  This study purports to evaluate the risk/benefit of vaccination for this group of 18-25 year old males.  It uses the BEST data from FDA, which is the best database for this kind of research.  However, it exaggerates the benefits of vaccination, substantially as far as I can tell from the Minnesota data, in this age group.  So even though there is a low risk of serious heart inflammation from vaccination, given high infection rates in this age group and given that there is some heart inflammation risk, I can’t see why vax would be recommended.  (Medrxiv Study)

The presence of heart issues following vaccination is hyped by the vax safety nuts, but they always conveniently ignore the presence of the same issues following a CV-19 infection.  This study focussed on a form of tachycardia or screwed-up heart rhythm.  It found there was an increased incidence associated with vaccination but it was one-fifth the rate of the same type of tachycardia following infection.  (Nature Article)

And here is more reason not to vaccinate young children.  In this study of those aged 5 to 11, the vax and boosters had very limited initial effectiveness against Omicron infection and even that dropped quickly.  (JAMA Study)

This study based on regular screening of a group for respiratory infections, which began well before the epidemic, found that in the first year of the epidemic, the presence of some viruses dropped, then rebounded, with a variable pattern depending on the specific virus.  Rhinovirus and seasonal coronavirus tended to show the most consistency with a pre-epidemic pattern.  (Medrxiv Study)

In this study from Shanghai, of patients who came to a hospital with a CV-19 infection, over 90% were vaccinated and most had mild cases.  Shedding of viable virus, which might correlate with infectiousness, tended to be a maximum of ten days, with the viral load continually declining from the start of the hospitalization.  (Medrxiv Paper)

This paper says it examines the durability of vaccine and booster responses, using neutralizing antibodies as the measure.  What it shows is limited effectiveness from the start in neutralization ability against current Omicron variants and a pretty rapid fall in that effectiveness in a short time.  (Medrxiv Paper)
