“Doctor Thira” update Omicron, subspecies BA.2, infect faster than Delta, Siamrath

On 26 January 65, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Teera Woratanarat, Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Posted a message via Facebook, Thira Woratanarat stated that…

has exceeded 358 million

Yesterday around the world, 3,001,336 people were infected with 8,416 more deaths, a total of 358,670,890 people infected with 5,631,996 deaths.

The top five with the most infections were France, USA, India, Italy and Brazil.

The number of new infections every day in the world now. from Asia, Europe and North America which together accounted for 86.72% of the world’s population, while the number of deaths accounted for 82.8%.
Recently, the number of new infections from Europe accounted for 53.31 percent of the world, while the number of deaths rose to 43.13 percent.

Yesterday, the number of new infections was five of the top 10 countries from Europe and 12 of the world’s top 20.

…Update 2 interesting things

1. Omicron subspecies BA.2

Data from Prof. Moritz Gerstung from the German Cancer Research Center.

It was found that the number of new infections per day in Germany was BA.2 more than Delta (5% vs 2-3%).

Comparing the growth rates of each outbreak, Omicron BA.1 (first strain) was approximately 15% faster than Delta, but Omicron BA.2 strain was approximately 20% faster than Delta.
Berlin is now the city with the most BA.2, accounting for 30% of BA.2.

2. The incidence of myocardial infarction from mRNA vaccines

Oster ME et al. published a follow-up study after mRNA vaccination (Pfizer/Biontech: BNT162b2 and Moderna mRNA-1273) in the JAMA International Journal of Medicine on January 25, 2022.

From December 2020 to August 2021, there were 192 ,405 ,448 people vaccinated over the age of 12 years, 354 ,100 ,845 doses.

A number of adverse reactions have been reported in people. A total of 1,626 people had myocarditis.

the rate of myocardial infarction It was most common between the ages of 12-15 years (70.7 cases per 1 million doses of BNT162b2 injection).

The highest was in adolescent males 16-17 years of age (105.9 cases per 1 million doses of BNT162b2 injection).

and in men aged 18-24 years (52.4 per 1 million doses of BNT162b2 and 56.3 per 1 million doses of mRNA-1273).

Most of myocardial infarction patients receive treatment until they recover. often using anti-inflammatory drugs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: NSAIDS)
However, it is well known that The benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks. because if infected with COVID-19 There will be a risk of illness and death. including more complications
