A similar US picture:



But what about new variants?


US BA.5 dominance. But notice the growth in the BA.4.6 variant in dark blue. Now estimated at 6.3%. It has an additional spike protein over BA.4. Spike proteins assist virus entrance into host cells.

Default Re: NCR llockdown

A lower announcement yesterday at 2,986 cases. Probably a lot to do with lower testing due to storm Florita. The latest test number down again, by 1.5k to 19.7k.
Active 31,615, up 578.

Location detail

The NCR down slightly to 872 cases and it had 29% of the national total. Its 6 largest cities at 537...QC 184, Manila 125, Pasig 73, Taguig 70.

Region CL up only 6 to 354 and likewise 4A, up 1 to 483.
Bulacan 112, Bataan 33, Pampanga 67.
Cavite up 43 to 173, Laguna down to 107, Rizal up to 119, Batangas 58.

These 3 regions with a slightly higher 57% of all cases.

Elsewhere in Luzon

The CAR up 41 to 186. Baguio City up to 99.
Ilocos up 36 to 150
Cagayan 126
Bicol up to 91.

Visayas cases down by 81 to 355. Cebu City 342
Mindanao cases down by 134 to 369. Davao City 94.

The DOH putting out a "worst case" forecast for cases in the next two months, due to school reopening. assuming minimum protocols will not be followed. Although one can observe some reduction in observance I see the level is still high. People are still nearly all wearing masks in the streets. Though some not in fresh markets. Obviously with more mobility there will be some increased transmission, but 3 times?

https://www.gmanetwork.com/news/tops...story/?just_in.

A useful newsletter from SS comparing vaccine adverse reactions reporting here and in the US. While some reactions can be coincidences and suspect due to self reporting, it is thought that adverse reaction reports are generally greatly under reported. However, her analysis suggests that The Philippines is under reporting by a very large amount. Adding to the suspicions, aired in her recent newsletters, that the vaccine roll out here may not have been conducted at all well and that there may possibly be wider problems with the vaccines.Though these must await further analysis in other coiuntries before they can be confirmed.

See newsletter "Philippines FDA Pharmacovigilance Report..." August 25.
Subcribe (free) at:
https://supersally.substack.com/


So about 106k reports here. Given the poor reporting not much can be seen from the table about the effects of the various vaccines. Except perhaps that Pfizer has a lot of non-serious events?
In the US the VAERS system there has reported 1.4M. Making allowances for the relative populations of the two countries, age distributions and the big difference in health care standards it is still clear that The Philippines is greatly under reporting. SS says that this is even moire concerning as research there says the US system itself under reports serious adverse reactions by about 40 times! But she gives no reference for that.

Some examples where figures for the two countries are available:

Hypersensitivity: Philippines 318 cases, US 9,915.
Hospitalizaion Philippines 6.6k, US 173.5k
Deaths Philippines 2,620, US 30,347

No reports at all here for:

Covid 19, although 4,589 people got covid after vaccination and 247 died. Needs information on timing.
Transient high blood pressure. So what about following heart attacks, strokes?

Serious medial conditions:
Thrombosis, Thromocytopenia (low platelets): None here, US 8,891
Inflammation of heart. Here 19 cases. US 51,566
Bell's Palsy Here 30, US 15,853

Diagnoses here:

91 attempted from about 106k.
19 of these so far have linked condition with vaccination.

The latest Dr John video:


The latest ZOE, mainly BA.5 symptoms, from the UK. Fever down more to 13%. Making the temperature check machines here even more redundant!The ONS report 39% of UK cases were asymptomatic in June. Using PCR tests, not rapid tests, which have become more unreliable. So the BA.5 wave here is likely greatly under reported.

Two articles appeared on my phone's Google Discovery lately looking back at an important time in the pandemic when it seemed to be widely accepted that the emission of water droplets from infected people was just about the only way the virus was spread. It was thought by bodies like the WHO and US CDC that further spread could then take place from contact with some of the surfaces they landed on. Resulting in booming sales of alcohol, disinfecting fluids. Despite researchers finding few instances of surface contact transmission. People in the US wiping the cardboard boxes containing their online grocery deliveries. In a Manila subdivision I lived in spraying of incoming car tyres was performed for a while.
Plastic, Polythene and Perspex barriers were employed. Great emphasis on mask wearing, with cloth types thought to provide a good level of protection. Social distancing rules were introduced and thought to be sufficient. While there wasn't much emphasis in those days on air flows and ventilation in crowded indoor spaces to reduce aerosol spread. The main way it is now thought the virus spreads.
This is one of the articles:

Yesterday cases fell by about 250 from Saturday's to 2,318. Latest testing for Saturday down 3k to 18.1k.
Active: 28,525, down 1,282


The latest DOH weekly positivity chart. Latest 14.1% for the w/e Aug 21.

OCTA say for Aug 25 it was 14.3% nationally. For the NCR 13.6%.
Predicting nationally below 5% in a month's time.

Location detail

The NCR down 83 to 782 but maintaining 34% of all cases. Its 6 largest cities with 489 of those cases...QC 174, Manila 104, Paranaque 65, Pasig 61, Taguig 58.

CL down by about 50 to 249......Bulacan 103, Pampanga 36.
4A up 10 at 396...Cavite 121, Rizal 102, Laguna 82, Batangas 47.

Elsewhere in Luzon

The CAR 72..Baguio City 7
Ilocos 77
Cagayan down 40 to 95.
Bicol down to 46.

These 3 regions up to 62% of all cases.

Visayan cases down to 260....WV 114, CV 86.
Cebu City 24.

Mindanao cases also down to 341. Only the SOCCSK region up, by 24 to 82.
Davao City 55.

The latest Dr John video may be of some relevance to explaining Philippine excess deaths, some of the data on that having been presented here from SS's recent newsletters.


John's Hopkins Our World in Data have produced this map with countries reporting excess deaths 2020-21. Those in darker yellow and red are obviously well in excess of covid. Large parts of the world not reporting, including The Philippines. Of course the data from some countries, eg Russia, can be discounted.


English excess deaths above the purple dotted line, so far this year, with the yellow shading showing the numbers due to covid. So many not. But much less the case there in 2021. As covid killed many older people a few years prematurely in 2021 we would expect excess deaths to be lower in 2022.


All ages in England show a similar pattern. This chart for up to 24 years showing a worryingly large number..

Many experts speaking out in concern but so far only the Scottish government having an enquiry about excess deaths there.

Of course the relevance of this here is limited as Philippine excess deaths have been shown to be well over the deaths attributable to covid for 2021 as well. Though preliminary data for January 2022 here showed deaths to be 17% higher than expected in a time of decreasing covid deaths.

Latest OCTA positivity report:


Falling positivity in many Luzon regions over the week to August 29, including the NCR. But it's still high and suggests many people are not being tested. Whether it is because of mild symptoms or more difficulty in getting tested o a combination of the two is unclear. The result will be a lower looking but longer lasting wave with more people with comorbidities and lacking booster vaccination needing to be hospitalized..

DOH Weekly report

Cases down 19% (15%)
Deaths 316 (321)

The acting DOH Secretary uses the example of Singapore against Cebu trying to lift outdoor mask wearing mandate. It can do it as it has better access to hospital.

https://www.msn.com/en-ph/news/natio...re/ar-AA11k50R

This article looks at mask wearing in some other E and SE Asian countries:

https://www.straitstimes.com/singapo...ound-the-world

All countries except Japan where outdoor mask wearing is either not mandatory or rules lightly enforced are doing well in terms of deaths. Japan has an older demographic and less immunity from previous outbreaks. China has a similar policy to here on masks with its zero covid policy. This thread started in March 2020 with a discussion about us following China with a strict lockdown. Interesting that the Palace using statements from the previous President:

https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/06/14/...ing-face-masks

If we go back to this Task Force leader's statement from early this year then we will be still wearing them well into next year!

Yesterday a first of the month surprise from Central Luzon:

National cases jumped up by over 2k yesterday to 3,767, but 1,273 or about a third of these came from two areas in Central Luzon. Latest testing at the end of August up to 23.2k.
Active 22,259, down 1,922

Location detail

NCR cases up by 436 to 1,016, the highest since the Wednesday of last week, when it was 1,212. An artificially much lower 27% of all cases. From its 6 largest cities 635... QC 199, Manila 136, Taguig 83, Paranaque 78, Caloocan up 56 to 81, Pasig 58 cases.

Central Luzon at the most was up to just over 400 in the past two weeks and so far this week stayed in the 100s and 200s. So a big surprise to see 1,498 new cases announced yesterday. No investigation by the ABS-CBN or GMA journalists, as usual.
Upon further investigation into its constituent areas using the DOH tracker site:

Olongapo City 763
Zambales 510

Cases which seem to have fallen down the back of the filing cabinet!

DOH charts try to place infections at their tome of infection.


Olongapo City cases.
From this chart it seems likely most of these infections went back 6 months.



Zambales cases.
Again it looks like many extra infections have been placed 6 months back. Surely the great majority have now recovered?

For CLs other areas:
Bulacan 75, Bataan 40, Pampanga 19.

Region 4A: up 187 to 398.
Cavite 135, Laguna and Batangas each 80, Rizal 73

These 3 regions an artificially high 77% of all cases.

Elsewhere in Luzon

The CAR 44
Ilocos up to 76
Cagayan up 44 to 101
Bicol up to 71

Visayas regions up 83 to 283 with WV up 17 to 131.
Cebu City 38.

Mindanao cases up 62 to 265.
NM up to 59, Davao 72.
Davao City 44.

The recent Dr John video on the covid vaccine and pregnant women getting a convincing video rebuttle from Dr Susan Oliver on You tube:



But I think he is best when he sticks to the data.
In his latest video he is optimistic about UK covid infections but not about UK excess deaths.

The BBC's Newsnight programme also looked at UK Excess deaths sowing a version of the same ONS chart that Dr vJohn presented:


Non covid UK excess deaths the green areas above the yellow line and high in early 2020 and at a lower level mid to end 2021 and mid to late this year.

The Newsnight discussion was about pressures on the NHS and not on vaccination as a possible cause of some of these deaths. The UK vaccination roll out started in December 2020 whereas the largest peak in excess deaths occurred earlier that year. Possibly due to lockdown measures which started in March 2020. Also the chart does not seem to show any coincidence between vaccination and the lower level of excess deaths in 2021 and 2022. This lack of timing coincidence has not been seen in Philippine data,reviewed here recently.

However we do have some analysis on UK data recently presented in an SS newsletter "Questioning Population Vital Statistics" on Sept 3. Subscription is free from:

https://supersally.substack.com/


A Dr Paul Alexander looks at UK vaccine take up and estimates. Out of 63.4M only 44.5M had received at least one dose. So 18.9M not vaccinated at all. Nearly 30% and much higher than official figures. Johns Hopkins says no doses 15% now.

Then he looks at deaths following covid vaccination Dr John has repeatedly complained about this data not being published by the ONS. But Dr Alexander reports he did find this data
An example of the raw data here for the 60-69 age group England. Published July 6 for 2021 and up to May 2022.



Relating all of this raw deaths data to vaccine uptake:


Sadly in this period deaths were 606,537 from covid. Using Dr Alexander's figures that 44.5M had at least one dose that gives 1 in 73 people who had had a covid vaccination had died by May 2022.

He looks at this through time, by extent of vaccination, and by age group:


For example:


The unvaccinated deaths never more than 2 dose. for the 18-39s.

A similar pattern for all other age groups eg 70-79s:


For the 70-79 age group an even greater difference can be seen n favour of the unvaccinated.

The same author looks at US data:


US deaths per M through time in the covid pandemic. From Our World in Data.

Compare with US daily % vaccination:


A death peak following a vaccination peak.
But better to compare vaccinations with the daily % rise in US deaths:


A 6 month delay after the vaccination peak. Alexander and another analyst Kirsch, also giving data and analyis presented in the SS newsletter, argue that these delayed deaths are many more than the obvious spikes seen in the few days post vaccination.
See also Kirsh's review of European data. Overall he sees a 5, not 6, month delay in deaths post vaccination.

Both authors do not downplay the effects of lockdowns but say they are working constantly throughout the pandemic. They see vaccine effects on deaths in the first 2 weeks or so post vaccination then after a 5-6 month lag from the start of vaccination campaigns, whether initial doses or boosters.

Philippine PSA death data for 2022 is very late in coming out , with only some reliable data for January. If Alexander's and Kirsch's analyses are correct the country will record more excess deaths following the latest booster campaign. In addition to the large number already seen in the pandemic. Figures likely to be well under reported, especially those likely due to vaccination. SS said in one of her recent newsletters that doctors have been under pressure not to report such deaths to LGUs and the DOH..

Weekly report later.

The OIC of the DOH making a confusing statement a few days ago. Says public mask mandate must be kept until cases stabilize. Then she says cases "are stabilizing".
A decision imminent from BBM..but is it? With faceshields there was no decision last year from the President. Only from some Mayors.

Also the same lady making this unbelievable statement. Deaths post vaccination and caused by it have been recorded in other countries:

https://mb.com.ph/2022/09/02/no-link...m_medium=email

DOH weekly report

Cases 17,145 and down 10% (19%)
But the DOH selling itself short as it included about 1,100 old CL cases in its total.
In a bind because they don't want to admit not reporting these cases and cause doubt on their data collection and reporting. Few people follow what they do and they are not in the mainstream media so the DOH have been getting away with things during the Pandemic, both with cases and especially with deaths.

Deaths 354 (316)
September and August 146. The rest back to July 2021.

Severe and Critical:

Admitted 768 (807)
New admissions 40 (101)

ICU 23.5% (25%)
Non ICU 29.3% (28%)

Improvement seen in public hospitals.
