    What happened with all that black mould stuff with covid infections? Bad click through rates so media stopped reporting on it?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    TL;DR tropical environments combined with high blood sugar from untreated diabetes makes a particularly good environment for secondary fungal infections.

    No it is a real thing: https://www.theguardian.com/global/2...a-mucormycosis

    My guess is that is was a real, but rare problem. It got a bit of coverage, because 'black mold infecting the brain' sounds so horrific. But doctors fine-tuned the steroid doses and / or upped the anti-fungals and avoided it.

    Too bad, easy fix ain't so easy.

    For the final analysis, Merck combined the two batches, concluding that molnupiravir was 30 percent effective overall at preventing hospitalization and death. Of the 699 people total who received a placebo, 68 were hospitalized and nine died. Of the 710 people total who received molnupiravir, 48 were hospitalized and one died. The rates of hospitalization and death worked out to 9.7 percent in the placebo group compared with 6.8 percent in the molnupiravir group, suggesting the drug led to a 3 percent decrease in absolute risk and a 30 percent decrease in relative risk.

    Members of the FDA panel summarized the efficacy data as "not overwhelmingly good" and "modest at best."

    In Moonspeak, but some nice breakdowns on the vaccination effectiveness in Finland, blue = no vaccinations, light blue = 1 dose, purple = full set of vaccinations, broken down by age group and reported as cases requiring hospitalization per month per 100k population in the given group.

    But, with that strategy, there's also the potential it could disrupt the genetic code of humans. AMDAC members largely felt that Merck had not done enough safety monitoring to better understand the risk of mutations in people, particularly in pregnant people.
    Ok....give anti-vax muppets more fuel? Do more testing, adjust the pills.

    Erm excuse me sweetie, but foggy brained employees are less productive and therefore we should be allowed to pay then below minimum wage for a period of time after they test positive

    In Italy you already get reduced pay if you are covid sick and not vaccinated.
