Largest study of masks yet details their importance in fighting Covid-19
Scientists conducted a randomized trial across 600 villages and more than 340,000 people in Bangladesh and found that even some adoption of surgical masks made a difference.

@oristarA,

Joe Biden:
Twenty years ago, nearly 3,000 lives were cut short by an unspeakable act of cowardice and hatred on 9/11. As a nation, we must never forget those we lost during one of the darkest moments in our history and the enduring pain of their families and loved ones.
----------------------------
Our new COVID-19 plan will reduce the number of unvaccinated Americans, decrease hospitalizations and deaths, allow our children to go to schools safely, and keep our economy strong by keeping businesses open.

We will spare no effort in saving lives and beating this virus.

Honesty study to be retracted over faked data
An influential 2012 paper about how to promote honesty when filling out forms will be retracted because it was based on fabricated data. The authors had already published a 2020 study showing that the original paper’s conclusions could not be replicated. As part of that replication effort, the original data were opened up to scrutiny, eventually leading to anonymous data-integrity sleuths at the Data Colada blog to uncover “that the data were fabricated… beyond any shadow of a doubt”.

An Elbow Injury Exposes the Exorbitant
Costs of Health Care
Bills totaling $287,365.08 provide insights into the dysfunctional economics of American medicine


Now that my caregivers have billed my insurance company, I feel compelled to write this follow-up column. The bills for my treatment total $287,365.08. By far the biggest two items are the hospital’s bill ($185,037.45) and the orthopedic surgeon’s bill ($86,969). Separate bills from pathologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists and other providers make up the balance.
The hospital’s $185,037.45 bill includes $13,500 for an MRI of my elbow, $9,500 for a CAT scan and $17,797.12 for two x-rays. “Laboratory” expenses—primarily related, I’m guessing, to blood tests carried out throughout my stay—total $44,787.96. The bill for my semi-private hospital room is $54,000, or $18,000 per night. The hospital’s charges strike me—and two physicians I ran them by—as high. And, in fact, a medical-imaging Web site says “upper-extremity” MRI scans
cost between $1,050 and $7,000; another site says overnight hospital stays
average $11,700.

EDITORIAL
Self-inAicted wounds
The latest round of foibles on the origin of SARS-CoV-2 began with the release of an unfunded grant pro- posal that was submitted in 2018 to the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency by the nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance. The proposal featured EcoHealth’s president, Peter Daszak, as the principal investiga- tor, and several coronavirus researchers from the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and Duke–National University of Singapore Medical School. It described ex- periments to introduce proteolytic cleavage sites into SARSlike coronaviruses. Such a site in SARS-CoV-2 (cleaved by furin) enables the virus to efficiently infect human cells. How the furin cleavage site wound up in the virus is a focus of debate over the origins of the pandemic. Never mind that the experiments, which hardly posed a threat, were not conducted and were proposed by UNC scientists. The researchers failed to get ahead of the story. They should have known that the proposal would arouse interest, especially be- cause the collaborators included scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and US scientists. When the rejected proposal was “leaked,” it looked like the scientists were hiding something. This misstep has noth- ing to do with SARS-CoV-2’s origin, but it nevertheless looked suspicious.

A further case of Omicron variant confirmed
Following the first 2 confirmed cases of the SARS-CoV-2 variant known as B.1.1.529 on 27 November, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has identified one further case of COVID-19 with mutations consistent with B.1.1.529 in the UK.
The individual tested positive after travel to the UK and is linked to travel to Southern Africa. The individual is no longer in the UK, but UKHSA is carrying out targeted testing at locations where the positive case visited when they were likely to have been infectious. While in the UK, the individual was in Westminster, London.

Dr Jenny Harries, Chief Executive of UKHSA, said:

Our advanced sequencing capabilities enable us to find variants and take rapid action to limit onward spread. It is very likely that we will find more cases over the coming days as we are seeing in other countries globally and as we increase case detection through focussed contact tracing.

We are continuing our efforts to understand the effect of this variant on transmissibility, severe disease, mortality, antibody response and vaccine efficacy.

It’s critical that anyone with COVID-19 symptoms isolates and gets a PCR test immediately.

Vaccination is critical to help us bolster our defences against this new variant – please get your first, second or booster jab without delay. Wear a mask in crowded places, including public transport and shops, to ensure we all help break the chains of transmission and slow the spread of this new variant.
UKHSA designated variant B.1.1.529 as a variant under investigation (VUI) on Thursday 25 November. It was designated a variant of concern (VOC) on Saturday 27 November.

The B.1.1.529 variant includes a large number of spike protein mutations as well as mutations in other parts of the viral genome. These are potentially biologically significant mutations which may change the behaviour of the virus with regards to vaccines, treatments and transmissibility.

UKHSA, in partnership with scientific bodies across the globe, is constantly monitoring the status of SARS-CoV-2 variants as they emerge and develop worldwide. We are particularly grateful to health protection specialists and the government of South Africa for early sharing of local information on the omicron variant in an exemplary way to support global health security.

UKHSA is acting to get scientific information available as quickly as possible in order to inform the right balance of interventions to prevent transmission and protect lives. This will include analysing live samples of the new variant in our laboratories to investigate properties such as response to current vaccines.

As viruses mutate often and at random, it is not unusual for small numbers of cases to arise featuring new sets of mutations. Any variants showing evidence of spread are rapidly assessed.
