OPINION – Vaccinating against Covid-19, why wouldn’t you? | Thaiger

by Andrew J. Wood

The World Health Organisation not only advises that vaccines save millions of lives each year, but they also reduce transmissions. They and their partners are working together on tracking the pandemic, advising on critical interventions and distributing vital medical supplies to those in need, thereby reducing the number of infected people to transmit the virus.

Vaccines work by training and preparing the body’s natural defences — the immune system — to recognise and fight off the viruses they target. After vaccination, if the body is later exposed, the body is immediately ready to destroy them, preventing illness.

WHO states on its website…

“Since February 2021, at least seven different vaccines have been rolled out. Vulnerable populations in all countries are the highest priority for vaccination.

“It is understandable that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated now that Covid-19 vaccines are available. While more Covid-19 vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine that is authorised or approved for use. Safety is a top priority, and there are many reasons to get vaccinated.”

One of the most frequent asked questions is can a Covid-19 vaccine make you sick with Covid-19? The simple answer is no, as none of the Covid-19 vaccines contain the live virus.

According to the USA’s Centre for Disease Control the benefits of getting a Covid-19 jab will help keep you from getting the virus. All Covid-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have been shown to be highly effective at preventing Covid-19.

“Based on what we know about vaccines for other diseases and early data from clinical trials, experts believe that getting a Covid-19 vaccine may also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get Covid-19 and may also protect people around you, particularly people at increased risk.“

The CDC reminds us that wearing masks and social distancing help reduce the chance of being exposed to the virus or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system so it will be ready to fight the virus if exposed.

Australia’s government says vaccination is the most effective way to protect against infectious diseases. Vaccines strengthen your immune system by training it to recognise and fight against specific viruses. They add that when you get vaccinated, you are protecting yourself and helping to protect the whole community by slowing down the spread of the disease. Achieving herd or social immunity is a long-term goal. It usually requires a large amount of the population to be vaccinated.

The CDC notes that people who have already had Covid-19 or tested positive may still benefit from getting the Covid-19 vaccination. There is not enough information currently available to say if or for how long people are protected from getting Covid-19 after they have had it (natural immunity). Early evidence suggests natural immunity from Covid-19 may not last very long, but more studies are needed to better understand this.

In Australia the government say that wearing a mask and physical distance is still important, “It may take time for everyone who wants a Covid-19 vaccination to get one. A vaccine that is 95% effective means that about 1 out of 20 people who get it may not have protection from getting the illness,” they advise online.

Some people never show symptoms so vaccinations are important. There is a common confusion between pre-symptomatic spread (people who spread the virus before showing symptoms) and asymptomatic spread (spreading the virus by someone who never shows any symptoms). The former is one of the hallmarks of the pandemic, the latter much less common. What is important to understand is that everyone agrees vaccines reduce transmission.

So why wouldn’t you take the vaccine that are tested to be safe and federally approved? I read comments like “it’s poison” and “does not work” on social media, but the science and three stage testing, prior to receiving government approval, dispel all that.

An Israeli study found that from 100 vaccinated patients, those who received both doses of the vaccine did not become carriers of the virus and cannot spread it further.

Israel is one of the most vaccinated countries in the world and has compiled comprehensive data.

A new study has also found a reduction in transmission rates even after the first dose. Those who test positive for Covid-19 showed that twelve or more days after taking the first dose have a viral load that’s four times lower than those who have not been vaccinated. Those receiving the vaccine became far less of a Covid transmission risk even before receiving their second dose.

Being less of a risk would allow more freedom to travel with significantly lower transmissions, especially when coupled with mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing.

University Professor Cohen linked to the Israeli study and member of the official Health Ministry Advisory Committee on coronavirus vaccines, says…

“This shows that indeed, besides reducing symptoms and hopefully mortality, the vaccine may facilitate reaching some kind of herd immunity, allowing the partial protection of the weak or non-immunised.”

The question to open borders to vaccinated visitors is now looking more and more likely as the risk to do so is manageable.

    Thanks for a very sensible article.

    Rational people realise the limits of their own expertise, and defer to communities of experts who have decades of training and work full time in research. If you are not an astrophysicist, you trust the astrophysicists, rather than coming up with your own random theories based on nothing. If you are not a neuroscientist, you consult a neuroscientist when you have a problem with your brain, rather than Googling for a solution and ‘educating’ yourself with random Youtube videos made by David Icke followers or new age ‘shamans’. And if you are not an immunologist … you listen to the immunologists.

    Irrational people, on the other hand — flat earthers, climate change deniers, antivaxxers — I suppose they prefer to listen to the voices in their own head.

    Why wouldn’t I get a Covid-19 vaccine? A better question is why would I? I’m in good health have virtually zero risk from Covid. I also would like to have another baby in the near future, and there are concerns about pregnant women taking the vaccine and also unaddressed concerns about impairment to fertility. Actually the vaccine never underwent animal studies is approved for FDA Emergency Use authorization only, meaning long term safety and efficacy is completely unknown, and the manufacturers CAN NOT be sued or held responsible if you or a loved one dies and or is injured by the vaccine. So you have an unknown risk and an unknown benefit stacked alongside a nothing burger virus. People don’t seem to realize that life is fatal

    Why not?

    Because I’m not in the habit of taking vaccines for things I’m not at high risk for, and I consider it unethical to coerce people to do so.

    Why not cash in a chunk of your pension and buy a house for a homeless guy? You tellin me your money is more important than someone else’s life? Oh right–apparently it is. So stop pretending.

    Some very strong comments here but I think we should have some sympathy for them, these nonsensical and unfounded reasons for not taking the vaccine are nothing more than an excuse for selfishness and cowardice, some people just don’t have it in them to step up to the plate.

    These are the comments from a doctor. Vaccinating everyone against Covid is like giving everyone chemotherapy in preparation for the unlikely event that they might get it. I repeatedly hear the comments about not knowing how long you have immunity if you have already had Covid. Just because your antibodies disappear after 6 to 8 months, Doesn’t mean you don’t have T and B cell immunity. Sars1 is 82% similar and testing of those recovered from it after catching it 17 years ago still show ample T and B cells suggesting that you will have decades if not Lifetimes worth of immunity if you have had it. It would blow a large hole in the profits for the vaccine companies of course if they let that cat out of the bag.

    The La Jolla Institute of immunology in California did a study following up on 185 recovered COVID-19 patients. The conclusion was that those that have had the virus lose their antibodies after 6 to 8 months but retain ample T and B Cell immunity, suggesting decades if not a lifetime of immunity once you have had it. Another one of those inconvenient studies that get hidden from public view

    Some seem so desperate to get back to normal that they would eat dog shit if someone in a white coat told them it would cure them of Covid. There seems to be a lack of critical thinking Throughout the world, whether that’s down to brainwashing at school and by the media, or something in the water, don’t expect me to take anything without doing my own research and making my own decisions

    @LondonAI, looks like most people that commented are low risk individuals and or already had it. What exactly is “selfish” or “cowardly” about stepping aside and letting people who are actually at risk get the jab? What plate needs stepped up to? You say that in a way, that eludes to there being some form of risk in getting the jab. Perhaps you’re the coward in this herd.

    It should be up to the individual to make up their own mind and to take an informed decision – not one based on “the rubbish written by amature virologists on the internet”, whether that’s people like me or those like the author of the article who “is a professional hotelier, Skalleague and travel writer”.

    The author’s claim, for example, that “asymptomatic spread” is “much less common” is absolute nonsense and the complete opposite of very well documented medical evidence.

    The last thing I am is an “anti-vaxxer”, and I’m all in favour of “no jab = no job” where appropriate (or no jab = no entry), but NO-ONE should be pushed unwillingly or unknowingly into a jab they don’t want.

    Thankfully most people are not selfish and not self centred which makes a huge difference, the rest will be protected by us indirectly as is the usual case with these things.

    There is a very strong feeling of unity in this country at the moment and we thank the NHS nurses and doctors whenever we can for putting their lives at risk for us on a daily basis.

    If you are reluctant to take an RNA vaccine like that from Pfizer, then you should probably consider the one from Johnson and Johnson instead. They make it the old fashion tried and tested method. Me, I’m going to take whatever they give me as early as I can get it.

    “The jab is the only way back to normal” is what the vaccine sellers told us.
    1.- Can I stop wearing the mask?
    Government Response – No
    2.- Can they reopen restaurants, pubs, bars etc and everyone work normally?
    Government Response – No
    3.- Will I be resistant to covid?
    Government Response – Maybe, but we don’t know exactly, it probably won’t stop you getting it
    4.- At least I won’t be contagious to others anymore?
    Government Response – No you can still pass it on, possibly, nobody knows.
    5.- If we vaccinate all children, will school resume normally?

    Coercively or forcibly vaccinate the entire world population with semi-effective, unproven, poorly tested, new-tech vaccines that don’t stop transmission and don’t even stop many infections, supplied by profiteering multinationals at the orders of brainwashed & corrupt politicians and bureaucrats – and all for a mild disease. Makes sense.

    But that wasn’t THEIR “conclusion”, Clive G, which wasn’t “hidden from public view” but was widely reported in the mass media, it was yours.

    THEIR conclusion was that responses vary and while 70% retain the “killer T cells” necessary to give immunity, for an unknown length of time, 30% don’t – and those in the small sample tested were all symptomatic, so not representative.

    As they said.

    German doctors and lawyers, with some judges on board as well, are preparing a legal action challenging to 2 lies. Firstly the PCR test. Without this inaccurate test there is no COVID-19. It’s universally agreed that you should not test above an amplification level with more than 35, yet 45 is common. Secondly, the myth that there is asymptomatic infection . A super spreader event with a German woman was catalogued as an asymptomatic event, when in fact she was on flu remedies And was in fact displaying symptoms.

Grim milestone: 3 million Covid-19 deaths worldwide

Grim milestone: 3 million Covid-19 deaths worldwide | Thaiger
PHOTO: 3 million Covid-19 deaths recorded around the world.

Today marks a grim milestone as the Covid-19 pandemic officially crosses 3 million deaths around the world, with outbreaks still surging in various parts of the world. Over a year into the pandemic, and we are currently seeing over 700,000 new infections and 12,000 deaths per day, with Brazil, India, and France facing growing crises.

The 3 million figure reflects official numbers, though many suspect that real totals could be much higher, pointing at government conspiracies and early deaths that were not attributed to Covid-19 when little was known about the novel coronavirus in the early days.

Still, the official number is overwhelming enough – equal to the population of Kyiv, Ukraine, or the state of Arkansas in the US, and larger than world cities like Lisbon, Caracas, Dubai, Manchester or Chicago. Imagine nearly one-third of the people in Bangkok wiped out, or the entire nation of Armenia or Jamaica.

Following a steep decline in both new infections and deaths at the start of this year, the graph is again in an upward trajectory, both in terms of new cases and deaths from Covid.

Grim milestone: 3 million Covid-19 deaths worldwide | News by ThaigerThe World Health Organisation laments the dire condition of the world dealing with the pandemic after 16 months and so many opportunities to prevent the spread with basic safety precautions. Brazil has spiralled out of control, racking up 3,000 deaths a day, nearly 25% of all the Covid-19 deaths in the world in the past few weeks. New variants have been spreading like wildfire throughout Brazil as more dangerous strains have wriggled their way into countries around the world.

In India, the distribution of vaccines has been thwarted by swelling Covid-19 outbreaks and deaths. In New Dehli, 13,000 infections were reported in a day amongst the 29 million residents, but the city only has 178 ventilators available as of Wednesday.

Only 1.1% of the Indian populations has been vaccinated, and officials faced criticism of their vaccine exports while so many need jabs domestically. In Thailand, the percentage of people vaccinated is even lower.

700 million vaccines have been distributed worldwide, but they have been shipped disproportionately to the wealthier populations throughout the world. In rich countries, 1 in 4 people have been vaccinated, while in poor countries that number is less than 1 in 500. In fact, 87% of the vaccines distributed worldwide have been to wealthy nations, and the delays in India due to increasing Covid-19 deaths will not help close that gap for many months to come.

Thai Hotel Association pushes “hospitels” – hotels as hospitals

Thai Hotel Association pushes “hospitels” – hotels as hospitals | Thaiger
FILE PHOTO: Artist rendering of a "hospitel" - a hotel converted to a hospital.

With the third wave of Covid-19 ripping through Thailand, hospitals are rapidly filling up and the Thai Hotels Association has proposed “hospitels” as a creative solution. The portmanteau of “hospital” and “hotel” is the THA’s brainchild for creating more space for the growing number of Covid-19 infections that require treatment or at least observation as Thailand hits record daily case numbers. The idea of turning hotels into temporary hospitals was promoted by association president Marisa Sukosol Nunbhakdi this week.

“The move aims to reduce crowdedness at hospitals and promote continuous care for Covid-19 patients after new cases increased rapidly since late March.”

23 hotels have already registered to be hospitals, with 2,000 patients currently receiving treatment in the 4,900 available beds. The Ministry of Public Health laid out guidelines for hotels interested in participating. Hotels must have a minimum of 30 rooms and pass the alternative state quarantine evaluation. The ASQ-approved properties must have evidence of acknowledgement by the surrounding community to confirm their validity and eligibility. The hotel must be able and willing to take care of hospitalised patients for 5 to 7 days, even with no signs of symptom progression. Conversely, patients checking in must agree to stay in the hotel and be relatively self-sufficient.

Strict medical requirements must be met as well. Each patient must be provided with their own digital thermometer and pulse oximeter, and a portable x-ray machine must be available. The hotels must be staffed like hospitals, with at least one doctor, a clinical psychologist, a pharmacist, a radiologist, and an infection control nurse. There must also be one nurse per every 20 patients staying at the property.

This proposed solution might provide a welcomed supplement to the rudimentary field hospitals the Thai army has been hastily building to accommodate the influx of newly infected patients. While the quick work is commendable, some have hypothesized that at-risk foreigners may be ignoring calls to come forward for Covid-19 testing in part because being diagnosed may land them in these less-than-posh field hospitals for days on end. A more comfortable “hospitel” would allow infected foreigners to be treated in more pleasant surroundings thus encouraging them to come forward for testing.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Bangkok is now a red zone. Government gives people today to get back from Songkran break.

Bangkok is now a red zone. Government gives people today to get back from Songkran break. | Thaiger

…. before the next round of restrictions come into force at midnight tonight.

Bangkok and 17 other Thai provinces (there are 77 in total) are now declared maximum control areas. These “red zones” are the feature of the Thai Government’s new restrictions to get a grip on its rising Covid infection numbers since the start of April. The restrictions will last for at least 14 days.

From tonight, at midnight, some new restrictions are in force, not only in the red zones but every where else.

Think nightlife, think gatherings of more than 50 people, think restaurants. These are the area the government has generally targeted. The CCSA spokesperson yesterday, and the Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha, went out of their way to portray the new restrictions as NOT curfews and NOT lockdowns. But, if you live in a red zone province, including Bangkok, then the new set of restrictions are a lockdown in just about every sense without outright telling people to stay at home.

Everything will have to be closed from 11pm – 4am in the morning, including all convenience stores. Hope you’ve paid your Netflix subscription!

The government is also advising businesses in Bangkok, and other red zone provinces, to allow employees to work from home, or have adequate precautions in place if they need to work in the offices.

Unlike the last two outbreaks of Covid within Thailand, this cluster has emerged from the indulgences of Bangkok’s hi-sos, celebrity and look-at-me culture. The trendy clubs around Thong Lor and Ekkamai are the destination for people that want, or need, to be seen, including some politicians who have either ended up infected or knew someone in the club and pub scene and have had to self-isolate.

The late evening sojourns, with nary a care for masks or social distancing, small spaces, lots of people… it has proven the perfect breeding ground for a new Covid cluster.

Bangkok’s legendary shopping centres and community malls will have to shut their doors by 9pm, a situation now across the board for all Thai shopping centres including places like your local Tesco mall.

But convenience stores, supermarkets, community markets can stay open until 11pm.

At this stage people are being advised not to travel to Bangkok, or any other red zone province, for the next 2 week (after midnight tonight). The travel advisory isn’t an order at this stage, more of a hurry-up-and-get-back-from-your-holidays request.

Last weekend saw the mass exodus out of the city. The same return from the provinces is happening today and tomorrow. Even though the official Songkran holiday ran from Tuesday to Thursday this week, plenty of people have take the Mondays and Friday off last week to end up with an extended 9 day holiday. The government was hoping the longer Songkran break would be a boon for the shattered hospitality and tourism businesses. But last weekends sudden climb of new Covid infections caused some people to cancel or postpone their bookings.

The annual Songkran road toll, usually a national disgrace, was cut by over 50% this year due to the lack of traffic and people deciding to wait it out and catch up with their families later.

Thailand recorded 1,547 new infections around Thailand today, a slight drop from yesterdays’ 1,585 reported new cases. But the last 4 days have revealed the largest list of daily infections since the first case was detected in Thailand on January 13 last year, a 61 year old Chinese passenger on a flight from Wuhan to Suvarnabhumi – the first known case of the novel coronavirus outside of China.

2 leading police from the Thong Lor police station have already been sidelined into inactive posts, a face-saving measure to show the government were being pro-active in reacting to the sloppy enforcement (or non-existent enforcement) of Covid precautions in the district’s active nightlife. Officials are also tracking down the owners of the nightclubs and bars for potential prosecution, principally around Bangkok and in Phuket where parties, promoted and run by a group called ‘Kolour’ ended up becoming Covid spreader events.

Here’s a list of the red zone provinces.

1. Bangkok
2. Chiang Mai
3. Chon Buri
4. Samut Prakan
5. Prachuap Khiri Kan
6. Samut Sakhon
7. Pathum Thani
8. Nakhon Pathom
