Vietnam detects highly contagious new coronavirus variant as infections surge

Variant is a mix of coronavirus strains first detected in the United Kingdom and India, country’s health minister says

May 29, 2021 at 8:26 a.m. EDT

 

Vietnam’s Health Ministry announced Saturday that it had detected a highly transmissible new variant of the coronavirus that has helped fuel a recent wave of infections in the country.

 

Genetic sequencing indicated that the new variant was a mix of the coronavirus strains first detected in the United Kingdom and India, said Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long, according to the VnExpress newspaper.

 

The minister said the new variant was particularly contagious via air and viral cultures have revealed it replicates extremely quickly, the newspaper reported.

 

“The new variant is very dangerous,” Long said in a statement.

The Health Ministry didn’t return a Saturday afternoon request for comment.

 

Scientists said further study was needed to determine the effect of a variant in “real-world settings.”

 

“A lot of different mutations happen as the virus is transmitted and most of them are not of clinical significance,” said Todd Pollack, a Hanoi-based infectious-disease expert for Harvard Medical School. “Just because they say [the new variant] has features of one and the other … doesn’t mean they got together in one patient and spit out some combined hybrid ‘supervirus.’ ”

 

There were seven known coronavirus variants in Vietnam before Long’s announcement, according to Reuters.

 

Vietnam, which has reported around 6,400 coronavirus infections and 47 deaths, has been one of the world’s coronavirus containment success stories. A well-run public health-care system, quarantine camps operated by the military and strict, targeted lockdowns kept case numbers low until late April, when a spike in infections began.

 

Many of the recent infections were detected in two industrialized provinces in northern Vietnam, where factory employees often work in proximity. Plants there that manufacture for such global brands as Apple have implemented social distancing measures, Reuters reported. Such factories are key to Vietnam’s export sector, which has boomed amid trade tensions between the United States and China.

 

Restrictions are also in place in Hanoi, the capital, and Ho Chi Minh City, the country’s economic hub.

 

Singapore and Taiwan, which had effectively eliminated transmission of the coronavirus at the start of the year, recently reintroduced curbs as infections return.

 

Many countries that managed the pandemic with “non-pharmaceutical interventions are finding that more transmissible variants are more difficult to control with these measures,” Pollack said. “This is the biggest challenge that [Vietnam is] facing since covid-19 came onto the scene.”

 

Vietnam is operating one of the slower inoculation programs in the world, with fewer than 0.1 percent of its 103 million residents having been fully vaccinated as of Friday. It has approved the Oxford-AstraZeneca and Sputnik V shots and recently signed a deal to buy more than 30 million Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine doses. Vietnam is also developing its own Nanocovax vaccine, whose final-stage trials are set for completion in the second half of the year.

 

Hanoi has a rocky relationship with Beijing and, unlike many other middle income nations, it has not approved the use of Chinese-developed vaccines.

Yes, Jeepers.  I have been watching Al Jazeera and the South China Morning Post for a couple of months, waiting to see where this would show up.  I expected it in Egypt actually, but Vietnam was on my second-tier short list. 

The Chinese Synopharm vaccine is only about 30% useful in females against the Indian variant, it seems, so Vietnam rejecting it is just as well.  Looks like the Synopharm vaccine would be next to useless against something with Indian resistance and hybrid vigor.  Hopefully, the Vietnamese vaccine will be better than the oak leaf pills my great great grandfather peddled.

Too little, too late but at least it's now a law on the books.  "The Senate approves Rand Paul's (R-KY) amendment to a bill that bans all gain of function research in China from receiving US funding by unanimous voice vote."  (Forbes Breaking News)

For the week ending May 29, the US has averaged 21,422 reported new cases per day, 655 deaths per day, 23,358 hospitalizations per day attributed to Covid.

 

Remember the flu season we didn't have?  Well, the southern hemisphere isn't having one either.  This means the flu shots for next year will be much more of a dice roll than usual, because the usual thing is that next year's northern hemisphere shots are based on this year's southern hemisphere flu variant.  Which there isn't one.

WHO wants Covid variants to be given Greek alphabet names

Global health leaders have announced new names for Covid-19 variants using letters of the Greek alphabet.  Many variants of Sars-CoV-2 - the virus that causes Covid-19 - have been identified around the world.  They include B.1.1.7, known in the UK as the Kent variant and around the world as the UK variant - but now labelled by the WHO as Alpha. The B.1.617.2 variant, often known as the Indian variant, has been labelled Delta, while B.1.351, often referred to as the South African variant, has been named Beta. The P.1 Brazilian variant has been labelled Gamma.

In trouble: Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Cambodia, and really most of the poor and/or densely populated places in Asia and the Middle East; Bolivia and Paraguay(thinly populated, isolated, and thus protected until now), Uruguay (a tropical jewel city/state with a tiny country around it, basically), Argentina, Colombia, Trinidad & Tobago, Cuba, Venezuela, Brazil; Angola, Namibia, Uganda, Egypt, Burundi, maybe others in Africa; Fiji and still Papua New Guinea.

 

Today is one of the days when India is reporting one of every three cases of Covid that is reported in the world.  Which might be about as accurate as when the US was reporting one out of three cases that was being reported in the world.  More accurate?  Less accurate?  Who knows?  At least we can compare the ups and downs in these numbers.  Also, we have hospital figures and death figures, which are much more concrete.

 

On May 26, the US reported 1000 new deaths. On May 28, the US reported 634, which is close to the average of the prior couple of weeks.  This indicates a correction of paperwork on May 26, because an actual uptick in deaths would have lasted more than one day.  Bear in mind this correction will, like a leap year, mess up the week's average.

The P.1 Brazilian variant has been labelled Gamma.

 

 

I think there are nefarious reasons behind this change. It certainly makes if more difficult to determine the COUNTRY of origin of the variant and that would make it more difficult for the lay-person to track its path, etc. <_<

I agree Midnightmom. That and the fact that 'some people' were crying racist when we identified the variant by the country of origin. :rolleyes:

How many true cases of Covid 19 are there? (June 4, 2021, Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom)

 

The CDC seems to be changing its definition of a “case. ”For over a year, they’ve counted all PCR positive tests, even those that it took up to 45 cycles to find a speck of virus. But now that the CDC is investigating breakthrough Covid-19 cases after vaccination, they only want specimens where the virus was found after 28 or fewer cycles. Apparently, these are the only tests they see as positive. Scientists have been cautioning against high cycle thresholds for a year. So how many true cases have there actually been?This is something that we will discover in years to come.“COVID-19 Breakthrough Case Investigations and Reporting,”CDC, Last reviewed May 14, 2021, https://bit.ly/2RLn2Ql“Predicting Infectious SARS-CoV-2 from Diagnostic Samples,”Jared Bullard, MD, et al, Clinical Infectious Disease, May 22, 2020: https://bit.ly/2R43DcU

NY Post:

Fears have been sparked after cases of deadly black fungus from the Indian COVID variant have been found outside India.  Medics in Chile reported a case of virus-related fungus, with scientists in Uruguay logging a patient there suffering with the condition.  The Chilean Society of Infectology said: “Cases of fungal infections have been detected since the start of the pandemic but the frequency has increased and serious cases have risen.”

India, which is being ravaged by variants, is battling hundreds of black fungus infections.  About 750 patients in Delhi have been recorded, and more than 50 deaths.  The rare condition is caused by molds known as mucromycetes which can kill people whose immune systems are weak.

When the spores – which occur naturally in the environment — are breathed in, they attack the lungs and sinuses before spreading to the face and the brain.  Mucormycosis causes blurred or double vision, chest pain and breathing difficulties.  It is thought the condition has exploded in India due to a lack of drugs available to treat it.  Patients with suppressed immune systems are most at risk — and scientists fear a rise in infections is being triggered by steroids used to treat ill COVID patients.

Medics in India are now seeing around five or six cases a day, but would usually see three or four a year.  It comes after we told how thousands of patients in India have had their eyes removed after an outbreak of black fungus.  Around 60 percent of patients treated in hospital have had at least one eye removed after the second wave of coronavirus caused an explosion of the creeping fungal disease.
“In this battle of ours, another new challenge of black fungus has also emerged these days,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted on Friday.  India has the second-highest tally of COVID-19 cases in the world and has been reporting around 250,000 infections and 4,000 deaths daily.  Mucormycosis mainly affects people who have health problems or take medicines that lower the body’s ability to fight germs and sickness.  It can be life-threatening in diabetic or severely immunocompromised individuals, such as patients with cancer or organ donor recipients.   In COVID patients, it’s more prevalent in patients who are on ventilatory support.  Doctors think this may be due to the use of steroid drugs, which are used to treat severely ill COVID patients.  Steroids reduce inflammation caused by an overactive immune response fight off coronavirus.  

It comes as the Indian variant threatens UK ministers plans to scrap social distancing, but keep face masks and work from home guidance in place after June 21.  The mutation is behind almost three quarters of all cases in the UK and has been found in more than 250 of England’s 300-plus authorities.   But the success of the UK’s vaccine rollout is believed to be responsible for recent low death tolls — despite rising cases of the Indian mutation in the UK.

I got called up for jury duty.  In a room of about 150 people, I think maybe 4 were wearing masks.  They're having everybody line up outside the building and turn in a COVID pre-screen form...that they completely ignore as long as you tell them you have a cold, based on what I heard from others.  They do still have capacity reduced from 300 to 150 in the sorting room.  I have to go back for jury selection tomorrow.

The Delta/Indian variant now accounts for about 6% of new infections in the US.  The Delta variant has already become the dominant strain of COVID-19 in the UK.  A study by Public Health England found that the Pfizer vaccine is 88% effective against the Delta two weeks after the second shot, but just one dose of the Pfizer vaccine was only 33% effective against this strain.

 

41% of the people in the UK are fully vaccinated.  As of Thursday, only three fully vaccinated people were hospitalized there. 

 

There have been hints of trouble in Russia for a week or so.  Now they are reporting an upswing in cases,  sometimes topping 10,000 cases and averaging 9,200 cases a day, meaning 44 infections per 100k people.  Putin says it's nothing to worry about, but he doesn't let out news without a reason.  Watch how the new stories develop, and watch how the money flows.

Weight-Adjusted Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin Boosted Survival of Ventilated COVID-19 Patients by 200 Percent: Study

 
June 9, 2021 Updated: June 9, 2021

A new study has found that the use of weight-adjusted hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZM) improved the survival of ventilated COVID-19 patients by nearly 200 percent.

The observational study, which hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed, was based on a re-analysis of 255 patients on invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) during the first two months of the pandemic in the United States.

The researchers found that when the HCQ–AZM combination was given at higher dosages to treat ventilated COVID-19 patients, the risk of death was about three times lower.
