    Eastern Europe faces 'truly disastrous' Covid situation right now. Experts call it a warning. (yahoo.com)

    As Europe finds itself at the epicenter of the Covid-19 pandemic once again, experts say it should serve as a warning to the U.S. and other countries about the virus’ unremitting nature.

    Countries across the continent have seen cases soar. October saw a rise of more than 50 percent, and the worrying trend has continued this month as winter begins to bite.
    Good grief....a warning!

    Their vaccination rates are ridiculous....

    "Despite having access to vaccines, those countries did not manage to convince their population to get vaccinated," he added.

    Romania and Bulgaria are among the countries with the lowest rates of vaccine uptake across the continent, according to the E.U.’s vaccine tracker.

    The latest data showed less than 23 percent of the adult population in Bulgaria had been fully vaccinated, while just over 25 percent had received at least one shot. In Romania, just under 34 percent of the population above age 18 had been fully vaccinated, while almost 38 percent had received at least one dose.

    Northwestern Medicine scientists have shown for the first time that coronavirus vaccines and prior coronavirus infections can provide broad immunity against other, similar coronaviruses. The findings build a rationale for universal coronavirus vaccines that could prove useful in the face of future epidemics.

    ...

    Plasma from humans who had been vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 produced antibodies that were cross-reactive (potentially providing protection) against SARS-CoV-1 and the common cold coronavirus (OC43), the study found. The study also found mice immunized with a SARS-CoV-1 vaccine developed in 2004 generated immune responses that protected them from intranasal exposure by SARS-CoV-2. Lastly, the study found prior coronavirus infections can protect against subsequent infections with other coronaviruses.

    Mice that had been immunized with COVID-19 vaccines and later were exposed to the common cold coronavirus (HCoV-OC43, which is different from a SARS strain) were partially protected against the common cold, but the protection was much less robust, the study found.

    Maybe over time natural immunity will be better? Not now perhaps, but over time.

    The Pfizer vaccine phase 3 trial started on July 27 last year and ran to mid-November, so it was released to the public without knowing how effective it would be after more than 3-4 months. Every case I've read or heard about with somebody who ended up hospitalized or dead with COVID after full vaccination was at least 4 months after their last jab.

    This month will make 6 months since I got my 2nd shot in May, so I'm not feeling confident about my level of immunity at this time, and I'm not old enough or unhealthy enough to be eligible for a booster, so my travel plans around Thanksgiving aren't going to be as social as previously planned. Hotels only (no staying with family or friends), and minimal indoor activities.

    Just a guess on my part, but I would imagine there might still be some efficacy a bit after symptoms start.

    One problem with it is the 3 day thing. Unless knowingly exposed to somebody with the virus, most people don't run to get tested within the first 3 days while their symptoms are still mild. You have to get tested, get the test results, get a prescription, and buy the drug all within the 3 day window.
