    buried somewhere in here those numbers can probably be teased out:

    COVID hits one of the last uninfected places on the planet

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/covid-hit...025228110.html

    When the coronavirus began spreading around the world, the remote Pacific archipelago of Kiribati closed its borders, ensuring the disease didn't reach its shores for nearly two full years.

    Pulling for y'all, Tuariki. With that level of vaccination, I expect that the harshest effects of Omicron will be tolerable.

    After 2 years of averaging 20 covid cases a day, New Zealand is bracing itself for the Omicron onslaught which is now out in the community.

    The experts are predicting we will likely exceed 10,000 cases a day by end of February.

    With more than 95% of eligible kiwis fully vaxed, hopefully we will still be able to keep our death rate low which has averaged 2 a month over the past 2 years.

    A good sign on Wednesday: the Rt (Replacement) rate in NJ fell under 1.0 to 0.92. The recent peak was 1.92 on 1/1. A number under 1.0 means that current patients are likely to pass on the virus to less than one new patient which means the trend is contracting.

    Hospitalizations and new cases are also off their recent peaks.
    On the other hand NY had a death toll over 400, a huge spike (which may or may not have something to do with weekend data lag). 911 deaths in last 3 days.

    There are multiple metabolic processes going on in the body that are absent in vitro.

    I got asked about this the other day. Its incredibly premature to say anything about it clinically. The study is a lab study - they studied cannabis on cultured human lung cells in a petri dish, basically. So there is no clinical correlation about if it works at all. Secondly, this is a pre-print, meaning it has not been peer reviewed or especially not accepted by a reputable journal after peer review. One of the problems with the internet is that there are now all these pre-print sites where people can post what they are submitting to journals so they are the "first" to publish on a certain topic. Our group of the major orthopaedic journal editors has made a policy decision that we do not want authors to post pre-prints before publication because of the risk of biasing the peer review process.

    Research at Oregon State U finds that some of the chemicals in hemp prevent covid from entering human cells.

    Van Breemen and collaborators, including scientists at Oregon Health & Science University, found that a pair of cannabinoid acids bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people.

    The compounds are cannabigerolic acid, or CBGA, and cannabidiolic acid, CBDA, and the spike protein is the same drug target used in COVID-19 vaccines and antibody therapy. A drug target is any molecule critical to the process a disease follows, meaning its disruption can thwart infection or disease progression.

    A scientist in an island country discovers that in dozens of COVID-19 patients, the Delta and Omicron viral variants have fused genetically to form a third variant, more powerful and deadly than any before.

    If it seems like science fiction, that's because it probably is.

    Reports over the weekend set the internet abuzz with news of a new variant known as "Deltacron," discovered in Cyprus by Leondios Kostrikis, PhD, of the University of Cyprus Laboratory of Biotechnology and Molecular Virology. Bloomberg first reported that Kostrikis, speaking on the Cypriot station Sigma TV, said the new strain combined elements of Delta and Omicron and could have come from patients with "coinfection" of both variants of SARS-CoV-2 at the same time

    But other experts, responding on Twitter, said that this alleged mega-variant was likely just a result of lab contamination. Tom Peacock, PhD, of the Barclay Laboratory of Imperial College London, wrote that this kind of contamination isn't uncommon in labs. He tweeted that "very, very tiny volumes of liquid can cause this" kind of sequencing contamination, but "usually these fairly clearly contaminated sequences are not reported by major media outlets."
