Mad readers will be aware that things have been changing in the world of COVID, especially with all attention now on Ukraine. Many things that were verboten are now being spoken about openly (the list is growing) by the information gatekeepers. The NIH has decided to investigate repurposed drugs, including ivermectin, for the treatment of COVID-19. With their credibility underwater at this point, it will be interesting to see whether anyone cares what they conclude. The CDC now says that 70% of Americans no longer need to wear masks indoors. California has concluded that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has become endemic. Most of us worked that out a while back.
GSK and Sanofi have released a new vax, which they claim is 100% effective at preventing hospitalizations, even against the Omicron variant. Didn’t we hear this before? Moderna has announced plans to try their mRNA tech in vaccines for other diseases, including shingles and cancer, so watch out world. A German insurer thinks that vax side effects are vastly underreported after comparing the official data against claims from their clients.
