HUGE− A Flu Shot Might Reduce Coronavirus Infections, Early Research Suggests
⇒Hospital workers who got flu shot vaccinated were significantly less likely to develop #COVID19 than those who did not, early study shows.

2) new preprint suggests that there could be another key reason to get a flu jab this year: it might reduce risk of COVID-19. flu vaccine against influenza virus may also trigger the body to produce broad infection-fighting molecules that combat the pandemic-causing coronavirus.
今年インフルエンザの予防注射を受ける別の重要な理由がある可能性があります: それは COVID-19 のリスクを減らすことがあります。インフルエンザ ウイルスに対するインフルエンザ ワクチンもパンデミックを引き起こすコロナウイルスと戦う広い感染撃退分子を生成する人体のトリガーとなる可能性があります。
注:preprintプレプリントとは、学術雑誌に投稿される論文を査読が終わる前にインターネット上で公開したものを言います。査読が終わって次号に掲載が決まっていても、刊行まで日にちがある場合にプレプリントとして公開される場合もあるようです。一般的に学者の業績は学術雑誌に掲載された論文の数とそれの他の研究者による引用数で評価されることが多いようです。Google Schalerはその観点から学者の業績を知るときに便利です。Eric Feigl-Ding@DrEricDing氏のページは次のリンクから見れます。大変立派です。

3) “The paper is in line with some other recent studies published in peer-reviewed journals that point to similar effects. But researchers caution the research is preliminary and needs to be bolstered by more rigorous experiments.

4) “In the new study, Mihai Netea, an infectious disease immunologist in the Netherlands, and his colleagues combed through their hospital’s databases to see if employees who got a flu shot during the 2019–2020 season were more or less likely to get infected by #COVID19.

5) “Workers who received a flu vaccine, the researchers found, were 39 percent less likely to test positive for the coronavirus as of June 1, 2020. While 2.23 percent of nonvaccinated employees tested positive, only 1.33 percent of vaccinated ones did”

I think the study suggests a 39% decreased chance of getting COVID-19, not a zero chance of getting it. Most people with flu shots who are exposed to the virus will still get it, according to the study results

It could just be that people who bother to get a flu shot to stay safe from the flu, are actually the ones who try to stay safer from getting Covid-19. It might therefore have a behavioral correlation than a biological one...

Just checking...Did Dr Scott Atlas or any of his associates write this article? Sad that's the first thing that came to my mind. These people have really done a number on truth...

Dr Fauci says people will likely need to wear masks & do social distancing guidelines into *2022*. Many epidemiologists agree, especially w/ mask resistance, lack of mass testing & airborne precautions, & vaccine hesitancy that Trump is fueling. #COVID19
Dr Fauciによると、*2022年*には人々はマスクを着用する必要があるだろうし、社会的距離を保つためのガイドラインを実行する必要があるだろうという。多くの疫学者が、特にトランプが煽っているマスクへの抵抗感、大量の検査の欠如、空気感染予防策、そしてワクチンへの躊躇などで意見が一致している。#COVID19

Fauci: Masks, Social Distancing Likely Until 2022

Khabib Nurmagomedov says he had his last UFC fight
He defeated Justin Gaethje of the United States on Saturday and retained his lightweight title for the third time

MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. Reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov of Russia has said he just had his last UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fight.

"It was my last fight here," Nurmagomedov said after he defeated Justin Gaethje of the United States on Saturday submitting him early in the second round, and retained his lightweight title for the third time. "When UFC called me about Justin I talked with my mother. She doesn’t know how I fight without father, but I promised it’s going to be my last fight, and if I give my word, I have to follow it," he added.

The fight was the first for Nurmagomedov after the death of his father and lifelong coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov who passed away on July 3 due to COVID-19-related complications.

"I know only one thing what I want from UFC on Tuesday - you have to put me on number one pound-for-pound fighter in the world because I deserve it," the Russian fighter said.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, hailing from Russia’s North Caucasus Region of Dagestan, was the first Russian to win the UFC champion title during the fight against his US opponent Al Iaquinta in the spring of 2018. At the UFC 229 tournament in Las Vegas in October 2018, Nurmagomedov defended his champion’s title in the fight against Conor McGregor, a renowned Irish professional mixed martial arts fighter and boxer. In early September last year, Nurmagomedov defended his UFC champion’s belt for the second time in a title unification bout against Dustin Poirier of the United States.

The 32-year-old Russian fighter, nicknamed ‘The Eagle,’ currently holds an unblemished record of 29 wins in all of his mixed martial arts fights.

'I will miss you, father': Khabib breaks silence following the death of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov
UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, whose father Abdulmanap passed away in early July due to complications stemming from a Covid-19 infection, has taken to social media for the first time since the tragic news.

Khabib, who has been off social media ever since his father's passing, broke the silence on Wednesday night. He posted a picture of himself hugging his father at UFC 242, which became the only fight which his father could corner him in his UFC career.

The picture was accompanied by a quote from the Quran in English, Arabic and Russian:

"And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], 'uff,' and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word. And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, 'My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.'"

Following the quote, Khabib also added a message in Russian.

"I will miss you Father, you were a Father, a friend, brother and coach in one person. You tough me almost everything I know, I hope that you were happy with me. The contentment of parents is the contentment of Allah," read the final part.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, a world-renowned mixed martial arts coach, died in a Moscow hospital following a heart attack on July 3, after having been being diagnosed with the deadly coronavirus. The heart attack required emergency bypass surgery, after which he was twice placed into a medically-induced coma.

The elder Nurmagomedov was buried in his home village of Kirovaul, in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan.
