Kyrie’s Uneven Playing Field

For months of this NBA season Kyrie Irving missed all home games and some away games due to his principled and impressive stand against being forced to be injected with an experimental and, for most people, completely unnecessary innoculation.

England ends several COVID mandates, restrictions and passports


Restrictions including COVID-19 passes, mask mandates, and work-from-home guidance will be removed in England, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday…..

“As COVID becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others,” the prime minister said….

But he refused to reconsider the vaccination mandate for frontline health care workers, insisting “the evidence is clear that health care professionals should get vaccinated.”

… Johnson told MPs that the Cabinet decided to remove its so-called “Plan B” measures on Wednesday morning as data suggest the Omicron wave has peaked nationally, and he attributed stabilising hospital admission numbers to “the extraordinary booster campaign” and the public’s compliance to the restriction measures.

Our Commentary:

This is very good news, and a great step in the right direction. However, the refusal to remove vaccination mandates for health care workers is extremely unfortunate, as no vaccination mandate is ever justified. Healthcare workers are smart enough and experienced enough to make their own choices about their own medical care, and the majority of the unvaccinated have doubtless already had COVID, and therefore have superior natural immunity. Never mind the fact that the vaccinated are now more likely to get and transmit COVID than the unvaccinated.

Take your vitamin D

We’ve all heard it before. “Take your vitamins.” Whether coming from mom, spouse or doctor, it’s good advice. Among the various vitamins worthy of our attention, vitamin D is possibly the most important, particularly if you live north of the 37th parallel, and particularly if you want protection from Covid-19.

Ivermectin shortens viral load and shedding in Covid-19 infected patients

A double-blinded randomized placebo-controlled trial found that non-hospitalized Covid-19 infected patients had significantly lower viral loads (and consequently reduced viral shedding) when they were treated with ivermectin.
