They must be really upset that they couldn’t justify forever Covid restrictions. ‘Control’ is the buzzword for that lot.
Been 20mph for many years in Conservative boroughs in both inner and outer London. Not something that worries the buses too much!

That’s because it’s no more dangerous than flu now. We don’t talk about that ad infinitum.

What I am concerned about now is ensuring that this coming autumn’s boosters address the Delta and Omicron variants. That should keep Covid at controllable levels without the need for further restrictions.

The coronavirus may infect tissue within the male genital tract, new research on rhesus macaques shows. The finding suggests that symptoms like erectile dysfunction reported by some Covid patients may be caused directly by the virus, not by inflammation or fever that often accompany the disease.

The research demonstrated that the coronavirus infected the prostate, penis, testicles and surrounding blood vessels in three male rhesus macaques. The monkeys were examined with whole body scans specially designed to detect sites of infection.

Scientists — who expected to find the coronavirus in spots like the lungs but did not know where else they would find it — were somewhat surprised by the discovery...

… The work was carried out at the Tulane National Primate Research Center in Louisiana. The researchers do not know whether the monkeys had symptoms corresponding to the viral infection of the male genital tract, such as low testosterone levels, low sperm counts, pain or sexual dysfunction, Dr. Hope said.

Men infected with the virus are three to six times as likely as others to develop erectile dysfunction, believed to be an indicator of so-called long Covid.

Patients have also reported symptoms such as testicular pain, reduced sperm counts and reduced sperm quality, decreased fertility and hypogonadism, a condition in which the testes produce insufficient amounts of testosterone, leading to low sex drive, sexual dysfunction and reduced fertility.

Re: Coronavirus

Omicron killed 280 people in Hong Kong on Monday, and there's been 450,000 cases since February 15. Before Omicron, the city had only 50,000 since the start of the pandemic.

All recent cases have been of a slightly mutated strain of the BA2 form of the disease which tweaks the amino acid profile in one of the Covid virus cell spike proteins.

The mutation, dubbed BA2.2, is almost unique to Hong Kong at this stage, but has also been seen in small numbers in the UK, Singapore and Australia.

I believe it was established a while ago that earlier covid variants cause the human body to develop a very decent t-cell immune response that is later effective against omicron. Populations that managed to avoid previous covid waves are likely to be at higher risk now.

We're not that much different. 123 deaths reported today and on the increase again.

And a lot of the ones on respirators are unvaccinated. Around 70% in the West Midlands.

UK population: 66 million. 123 dead in one day.

Hong Kong population: 7.5 Million. 280 dead in one day.

The percentages are key.

Re: Coronavirus

In case you're interested, my wife and I caught Covid on 23-Feb (the test date); a cold was building up at that point. We both tested negative on 07-March - prolly clear a day or so earlier.

There was no loss of smell or taste; no dry cough; no sore throat; no aches. Just a prolonged cold.

As if we didn't know, the vaccine works.

Re: Coronavirus

Covid inquiry’s public hearings will not begin until 2023, making final report before election unlikely.
