What sort of crazy shit is this?
I have tried cotton buds lighted dusted in aftershave for cleaning nostrils. It gives me relief from stinging sensation in the nose. (I recovered from Covid infection).

Alcohol does seem to have some beneficial effect in killing germs.

Y'all Nibbiars (Haldilal effect :devil:)
3 Vaccine candidates are now promission upto or above 90% efficacy. Pfizer one reported ~94-95%, Moderna 97% and this Oxford-AstraZeneca 90% in one trial and ~62% in another.
Trials of our own Covaxin is in Stage-3 now. Haryana Health minister got the first dose on himself. My sister who is a doctor got message that if they want then they can enroll in the Covvaxin trials.
US vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) wont be there or outside world for some time until US stocks are completed.
But Oxford-AstrZeneca is being made by Indian Serum Institute, all stage trials till now were made by them.
Central govt already locked 30crore or 3 crore doses.

The Interpol has warned that people may be deliberately contaminating letters and other surfaces. An episode in Shanghai has also highlighted the growing risk of the virus.

china is deliberately using chinese wuhan virus to create ruckus around the world.
18000 from Shanghai airport cargo department tested positive and still chinese govt (a joke) was sleeping.

Cloud over oxford astrazeneca vaccine efficacy.... something that we were looking forward to eagerly.

One of the two control groups were given only 50% dose quantity. This was found later and they were given one booster dose I guess which increased the efficacy to higher no.
Such mistakes are bound to happen given the pace at which the various teams are working on the vaccines.

it was suspect from day one.
Imagine - 50% first done and 100% second dose after 1 month was more effective than 100% two doses.
Duh. :shock:
