Oh great! Another MICE study to approve COVID mRNA technology boosters, great (Reuters)! Just like failed BA4/BA5 bivalent booster (& Wuhan spike), this XBB1.5 booster will fail on EG.5, BA 2.8 clade
by Paul Alexander
There will be mismatch of vaccinal antibodies to dominant spike, so viral immune escape, selective pressure (antigenic sin, fixation & driving MORE variants! CDC, NIH, FDA, HHS knows this; FEAR PORN!
This is garbage reporting and fear porn. The XBB1.5 booster based on the mice will fail just like the failed bivalent booster, a mismatch between vaccinal antibodies to circulating spike antigen, and there will be alike from when the vaccine was rolled out initially Feb 2021, original antigenic sin, immune fixation, recalled antibodies to prior prime. Antibody dependent enhancement of infection. This is a disaster and the result will be more variants being driven (via Darwinian natural selection pressure) with the possibility of a more lethal sub-variant, more virulent, not just infectious. This could threaten humanity.
As of now, there is no indication that the EG.5 clade or any variant for that matter is more lethal than omicron etc. Hospitilizations if any, if reporting is honest, will be for high-risk vulnerable persons as it always was, obese people etc. Not the general low risk population or children. No indication of severity based on reporting thus far.
Again, we do nothing, NOTHING but strongly protect the vulnerable around us, take reasonable common sense steps, use nasal oral rinses (povidone iodine 10%, oral hydrogen peroxide, diluted swish and spite no swallow), we use products that could dissolve existing spike protein from virus or vaccine e.g. nattokinase (natural blood thinner), we take care of ourselves, get your body weight down (obesity emerged as principle super loaded risk factor besides age in severe COVID outcomes), improve our diets, exercise, ventilate homes, stay home if unwell, we use vitamin D3 dosed appropriately, we use the early treatment model McCullough, Risch, Zelenko, myself etc. had published (see below) as the seminal treatment algorithm (adding nasal-oral washes up top in the first white box with self-quarantine etc.),
and we leave society fully open, no lockdowns, no school closures, no mass testing of asymptomatic persons, no quarantine of asymptomatic persons, there is no asymptomatic spread, we do NOTHING! Protect high-risk, thats all.
‘Aug 17 (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) said on Thursday its updated COVID-19 shot, which is being tested against emerging variants, showed neutralizing activity against the "Eris" subvariant in a study conducted on mice.
Pfizer, along with its German partner BioNTech SE (22UAy.DE), as well as other COVID-19 vaccine makers Moderna (MRNA.O) and Novavax (NVAX.O) have created versions of their shots, which are aimed at the XBB.1.5 subvariant.’
EG.5 accounted for about more than 17% of COVID-19 cases in the United States, according to the latest government data.
In the United States, COVID-19 related hospitalizations are up more than 40% off of recent lows hit in June, but are still more than 90% below peak levels hit during the January 2022 Omicron outbreak.’
