Actually, they have been testing sewer contents for coronavirus since early 2020 and other pathogens much longer. It's a valid technique for monitoring potential public health issues. Not perfectly predictive, more like weather radar.

I just keep watching the website Covidactnow. No matter what anyone says - my county still has a medium risk, and the next-door county is high-risk.

When did the testing for viruses in the sewer start?
Id bet that had they been using the same testing technology 4 years ago on the sewer they would have produced alarming results.
More chicken littleism.


More than one year ago for sewage testing.

If the numbers go up 20% in a week it isn't chicken little. And, they did.

Today Johns Hopkins posted the opinion of federal health authorities who say the pandemic is not over.

I hand it to Johns Hopkins for reporting, and not manufacturing health news. Their reporting is factual data.

As far as I'm concerned I make up my own mind after reviewing data. It's to keep an awareness of what the political entity is up to.

But as far as the calendar is concerned, the virus is tracking very close to the 1918 influenza pandemic.

PS: Australia is reporting their "winter" flu season is the severest in several years. So I believe I have been given a clear "Heads Up"

Getting omicron booster and flu shot at the same time. I want all the protection I can get. Getting severely ill is not one of my favorite things to do.

A fast note:
Astra Zeneca stopped Stage I trials of its nasal vaccine and declared the trial as a failure.

Gooood morning all:

....I quote Eric Topol MD (founder and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute) on his several-times-daily updated Twitter channel vis the BQ animal:

"Keep an eye on New York, leading the country with % cases BQ.1.1, bellwether for the next wave https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/daily-hospitalization-summary "

Looks like BQ11 is rapidly usurping BA4 (and 5?) in eastern locales, like NY City and Mid-Atlantic....

Any preprints AT ALL on Moderna BA5 booster efficacy (forget about the BQ line-up vis any boosters) ? 14% of Canadian are boosted now with the Moderna/Pfizer BA1 vax. As far as I can tell, zero BA4/5 vaccine in Canada. Any BQ sera testing vis BA5 papers out there yet?

Topol's Twitter feed (I like to follow this for bleeding-edge variant news): https://twitter.com/EricTopol

If you want to closely track global flu by subtype, this is an excellent tool (over 120 countries participate): GISRS here-->

From the drop-down menu, select the COUNTRY, and then if you wish, select the SURVEILLANCE SITE TYPE from that drop-down menu.

Presently in Canada, 200 specimens have been collected and typed October 16th. Compare this to Canada in mid September: a total of just 9 specimens typed. Lots of action now in Canada since October 2nd. AH3 now and A non subtyped. In the US presently, mysteriously, no data was provided to the GISRS since Week 34 (Aug 28th), when AH3 was confirmed. Mexico: last reporting was October 9th....specimens collected and typed: 145; A and AH3...rising.

About the time the Moderna bivalent booster was available, we got boosted “naturally” (by BA.5, based upon prevalence). We’ll get the booster closer to the end of this year.

My wife had cold symptoms while I had 24hrs of bad flu symptoms and a week of residual cough.

Here is the preprint/publication I have found via google scholar on Moderna's mRNA-1273.222 (1:1 mix of mRNAs encoding the Wuhan-1 and BA.4/5 spike proteins).

Bivalent SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines increase breadth of neutralization and protect against the BA.5 Omicron variant
Preprint 13Sep2022
Published: Nature Medicine 20 Oct 2022

Only transgenic mice data has been published.

So what works against B 1.1 or are we just swinging in the wind?
