    Correct. My wife got it after me and the doc didn’t prescribe it for her. I have high cholesterol, so doc thought it would be a good for me.

    That’s not to say that Pfizer can’t come up with a version that’s safe for everyone, tbh. Science!

    Lets go back to Ivermectin.
    Cheap, does not work.
    Ahhh the fanciful first year of this disease...
    Miss that kind of science. "Look there is this cheap farm drug the powers of big pharma are trying to with hold from us"

    Lol, high cholesterol. You aren't high risk. Keep taking emergency use authorization meds. Seems safe.

    Btw it looks like China is probably going into the ter for a bit.
    Crappy vaccine. German President made a visit to China just to get a proper vaccine to German expatriates.
    They basically relied only on testing, masking and shutdowns. Vaccine was and they did not push it.
    They stopped the shutdown policy so here we go with their factories not producing.
    Its possible for a big change in their economic machine again. Should be interesting for the US stocks.

    We wont get accurate hospital numbers from them, so watch how their economy performs and what China is unable to provide.
    Lots of western media provided this independently early on. When the protests were occurring.

    I'm not sure about that. I personally know people that took Ivermectin once they were diagnosed and they recovered very quickly. I don't think we can just write it off for everyone as it affects everyone differently.

    I had COVID a couple weeks ago. 50 years old, vaccinated with one booster, high blood pressure. Symptoms started Monday night, tested positive Tuesday, started plaxlovid Tuesday night, symptoms got better by Wednesday morning and basically resolved by Wednesday night/thursday morning, tested negative Saturday. Maybe it was a coincidence but my symptoms seemed milder, resolved faster and tested negative faster than people I know who didn't take Plaxlovid.

    LOL they broke immediately from zero COVID because they wanted to blame the protests when COVID had already been flaring up there for months. Also LOL the COVID death toll being officially seven. Can't wait to see hater come in here and tell us how amazing China's response has been.

    I know people who ate cheeseburgers after they were diagnosed and they also recovered very quickly.

    I took it when I had COVID last month. Worked great and no rebound.

    Probably take a booster next month. Need a couple of months to pass since the infection before you can take the booster.
    Moderna was talking about a yearly, updated Covid shot mixed with flu Vaxx. Hopefully that becomes a thing by next fall. I hear that insurances may not cover it, but if it works, still well worth the money, IMO.

    Believe what you want. There's enough anecdotal evidence for me to believe it works in some cases.

    The point of medical studies is to go beyond anecdote.

    Paxlovid rebound more common than initially thought.

    "President Joe Biden and his wife Jill; Biden's top medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci; and Dr. Roc e Walensky, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each experienced rebound."

    That's a June 2020 study. Also, under Discussion/Main Findings:
    Although our preliminary results suggest that ivermectin may reduce mortality, it is crucial to highlight that when trials with a high risk of bias are excluded, ivermectin results in a non-significant decrease in mortality. We found that in comparison with placebo or SOC, using ivermectin did not significantly change our outcomes, including progression to severe disease, negative RT-PCR, recovery, duration of hospitalization, time to negative RT-PCR, and viral load. Although no risk of publication bias was observed in primary outcomes, it is noteworthy that, based on the Cochrane handbook's suggestions, the power of these tests is too low for less than 10 studies to be included. We also identified that some registered RCTs finished without reporting results and so there may be publication bias. The overall certainty of evidence suggest that more research is needed and final conclusions should not be drawn based on the current findings and there is insufficient evidence to recommend it for therapeutic purposes in the context of health care at this time.

    yeah it could have been they were going to get well anyway.
    If you look at how ivermectin actually works it really makes no sense biochemically.
    Actually, its probably safer NOT to take it.

    Its not gonna be pretty.
    And some people are saying stocks are reacting to the supply chain possibly becoming much more vulnerable.
    One thing the Chinese are not going to be as interested in is Russia pulling its during the wrong time for them.
    Now who gets the blame in China for having a crappy vaccine... And yeah the actual covid numbers are just ridiculous so we have to rely on watching their economic engine start stuttering and choking.
