    Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine approved for South Africa

    The vaccine "roll-out" that has been touted by government, is an extension of the phase 3 trial. The phase 3 J&J trial has been running for awhile now. There is no direct approval process needed for this. Participants has to sign informed consent, and are not allowed to participate in several...

    Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine approved for South Africa

    Killing close to 3% of infected and leaving close to 30% of survivors with long term health problems is not odds you will get at any casino.

    Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine approved for South Africa

    I like the "clearly", when, if you know something, will know that this is normal procedure for any and all deaths.

    Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine approved for South Africa

    You don't need a "battery of tests". As mentioned, people die all the time. Both before and after taking the vaccine, it is not an immortality potion. Out of all the large number of people vaccinated, the press is going ape **** over someone who died in close vicinity of taking the vaccine...

    Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine approved for South Africa

    You are so right! My sister's friend's boyfriend heard from a guy about all these people that died on their way to get a vaccine. We never hear of any of these on the news at all. Someone is not reporting all these deaths. Who is trying to hide what and why? We need the truth about people...

    Domain name prices increased in South Africa

    Why no multi-year renewals? Don't think it falls under audit, but it's a pain in the butt to do annual renewals.

    These are the revised level 3 lockdown rules

    It is easy to ask if they helped at all. And it is a valid question. The research with regards to THE.THINGS. are quite clear - they all contribute to reducing transmission. One item which has been shown to not really contribute is the wide scale disinfecting of spaces. After disinfecting, you...

    These are the revised level 3 lockdown rules

    Two things at issue here: Many (most?) people are asymptomatic. They can spread the virus to others who are susceptible. So you have someone who seems healthy on the surface infecting five others who takes it home to granny... The fit and healthy are just as prone to die as the old and...

    These are the revised level 3 lockdown rules

    And do it safely. Again, this is the point about the levels on the one hand and the whiners on the other that I don't get. For the most part, you can do everything you want. If you visit friends and family, just do it outside and stay at a safe distance from each other. We know that the...

    These are the revised level 3 lockdown rules

    Don't get the point of the levels. Just list what one can and cannot do, the levels doesn't make any sense at all.

    AstraZeneca vaccine far less effective against South African Covid-19 variant

    Very good and very valid question. Unfortunately... The new variant spreads faster and more efficient. If not already dominating, it will very soon. As far as I know, it is already dominating here, and taking over in other areas as well.

    AstraZeneca vaccine far less effective against South African Covid-19 variant

    It would be in effect like getting a booster shot similar to many other vaccines. You are giving the immune system a "reminder" of what they should be looking out for. From a physiological point, there is no reason to avoid a second shot of a different vaccine. I have seen discussion by...
