You may have read that Andrew Marr, the BBC Presenter, went down with what he described as a nasty bout of Covid last week despite also being double jabbed.  And not with Sinovac.

It happens and again we should remember that the vaccines reduce the impact of Covid, not prevent us contracting it.  

I watched the BBC video on this today, he was quite bad. The Brit minister of health was emphasizing the priority was to eliminate the need of hospitalization and death.  Andrew did not appear to be impressed, he was pretty bad, on verge of going to hospital.

A politician twisting the truth... how unusual! :hystery:

The truth is the vaccines reduce (but do not eliminate) the chances of hospitalization and/or death from Covid.

If the tinfoil hat peeps are correct then China created this virus.  Kinda dumb to think they would give us a vaccine for it, if the tin hats are correct.

Food for thought Dave...

Probably not the best business plan.  Create a virus with the potential to kill the majority of your customers and one that with a global economy and main travel hubs will probably mean it'll run rampant in your own country within days.

SINGAPORE, July 7 (Reuters) - People who received Sinovac Biotech (SVA.O) shots are excluded from Singapore's count of total vaccinations against COVID-19, officials in the city state said, citing inadequate efficacy data for the Chinese-made vaccine, especially against the contagious Delta variant.

"We don't really have a medical or scientific basis or have the data now to establish how effective Sinovac is in terms of infection and severe illnesses on Delta," health minister Ong Ye Kung said during a media briefing on Wednesday.

The Delta variant has become the most prevalent strain of COVID-19 in Singapore since a cluster of infections was identified at the airport in May. The government subsequently moved back to stricter curbs on social gatherings and public activities, though it has begun relaxing some of those restrictions.

Only people who participated in the national immunisation programme, which currently uses the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech/Cominarty (PFE.N), shots, are counted in the tally for vaccinations.

More than 3.7 million people have received at least one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, covering about 65% of the population, and nearly 2.2 million have completed the two-dose regimen.

Singapore has set a target for two-thirds of its people to be fully vaccinated by around Aug. 9.

Following an emergency use approval by the World Health Organization (WHO), Singapore began allowing designated private clinics to offer the Sinovac shot, CoronaVac, from mid-June. Singapore had a stock of 200,000 CoronaVac doses which the clinics could draw on. read more

As of July 3, just over 17,000 people had received one dose of CoronaVac, and authorities say that demand for the vaccine appeared to taper off after an initial rush. read more



Last month, Kenneth Mak, Singapore's director of medical services, said evidence from other countries showed people who had taken CoronaVac were still getting infected, posing a significant risk.

And Singapore has said that people vaccinated with CoronaVac would still need to be tested for COVID-19 before attending certain events or entering some venues, unlike people vaccinated under the national programme.

Singapore has reported 62,652 infections since the pandemic first erupted last year, with most found in foreign worker domitories. But there were only five new locally-acquired cases reported on Wednesday. COVID-19 related deaths stood at 36, one of the lowest rates in the world.
