新コロナウィルス罹患による後遺症に男性の性機能喪失 ED

ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. Smoking 喫煙マーク long known to cause ED. Why should we care right now? Because #COVID19 causes vascular problems, experts worry about ED being a “likely consequence” among COVID survivors.

2) Study: “In conclusion, there is quite enough reason to suspect that male sexual and reproductive health could be affected in the survivors, by the sequelae of the COVID-19, both in the short and long terms”. https://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P

3) “Erectile function, as a surrogate marker of cardiovascular/pulmonary health, could also become extremely valuable as a quick and inexpensive first-line assessment of the pulmonary and cardiovascular complications for COVID-19 survivors.”

Good night!! https://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P

5) Another study: “Expression of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, receptor of #SARSCoV2, is high in the testes, therefore SARS-CoV-2 infection and its association with male reproductive health should be investigated in male #COVID19 patients.”

Wear a mask. Erectile dysfunction is a likely consequence of #Covid19.
マスクを着用してください。 勃起不全は、#Covid19の結果である可能性があります。

Pfizer CEO ‘ワクチンがCovid-19の感染を阻止するか「確信が持てない」


Pfizer CEO ‘not certain’ their vaccine stops transmission of Covid-19 as company’s jab approved in UK and evaluated in US

The top executive at pharma giant Pfizer said it still isn’t clear if those who receive the company’s vaccine will be able transmit the coronavirus to others, just one day after the UK became the first to approve the inoculation.

While Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said he expects the vaccine rollout to be rapid after it gets the greenlight from US health officials, following in the steps of Britain, he noted that it remains to be seen whether recipients of the jab can still carry and pass the virus.

“Even though I’ve had the protection, am I still able to transmit it to other people?” NBC’s Lester Holt asked in an interview on Thursday night, prompting a startling response from Bourla:
「私が保護されていても、他の人にうつすことはできますか?」 NBCのレスターホルトは木曜日の夜のインタビューで尋ね、ブーラから即座に驚くべき反応を得ました。

I think this is something that needs to be examined. We are not certain about that right now.

Last month, Pfizer announced that its vaccine – developed alongside German firm BioNTech – had proven to be more than 90 percent effective in giving immunity to trial participants, getting the greenlight from UK health authorities on Wednesday to begin distribution for widespread use.

Pfizer has applied for emergency approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but the agency has been more reluctant to pass the immunization, with a top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, saying his UK counterparts “really rushed through that approval” while praising the FDA’s “very careful” authorization process.

While the two pharma firms stand by the effectiveness of their vaccine, an inability to halt transmission from virus carriers could mean the inoculation falls short of the lofty expectations voiced by some officials in the US and UK.

‘It’s time to cancel everything’: LA mayor issues strict warning to residents as multiple politicians break own Covid-19 rules

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has warned city residents that it’s time to “hunker down” amid the holiday season, with travel only being allowed for “essential” trips.

“My message couldn’t be simpler,” Garcetti said at a Wednesday night press conference. “It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. And if it isn’t essential, don’t do it.”
「私のメッセージはこれ以上簡単なものはありません」とガーセッティは水曜日の夜の記者会見で語った。 「今はしゃがみ込むときです。すべてをキャンセルする時です。そして、それが必須のことでなければ、しないでください。」

The latest stay-at-home order for Los Angeles makes exceptions for travel, such as work, shopping for food, and getting automobile service.

The mayor has also warned residents that “gatherings” are prohibited. “Don’t meet up with others outside your household. Don’t host a gathering. Don’t attend a gathering,” he said.
市長はまた、住民に「集会」は禁止されていると警告した。 「家の外で他の人と会わないでください。集会を主催しないでください。集会に出席しないでください」と彼は言った。

The new year brings hope –– for vaccines and for stopping this pandemic.
But here's the truth: we're in for a long, hard winter.
As the worst hits us, stay home as much as you can. Cancel any non-essential activities.
Hunker down, L.A. We'll get through this together.

Violating the city’s pandemic orders is a misdemeanor and can be punishable with fines or even imprisonment.

Thousands of Los Angeles residents received an emergency text message ahead of the mayor’s press conference that warned: “all persons living within the City of Los Angeles are hereby ordered to remain in their homes.”

Garcetti’s warning has been mocked by many conservative critics on social media, some of whom have pointed to the growing number of politicians across the country who have been caught red-handed breaking their own Covid-19 advice and forced into apologies.

“No I will not ‘cancel everything’ and I can have anyone I damn well please in my house,” podcaster and author Dave Rubin, who lives in Los Angeles, tweeted in response to the mayor.

Austin, Texas Mayor Steve Adler issued a warning similar to Garcetti’s to his city this week, warning folks to stay home. What he left out in his message was that he was speaking from a vacation home in Mexico. Once the fact was made public, Adler apologized for setting a “bad example.”

Denver, Colorado Mayor Michael Hancock also released an apology after telling residents to avoid traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, only to hours later do exactly that himself when he flew to Mississippi for the holiday.

California’s own governor, Gavin Newsom, recently apologized after photos were released of him seemingly violating his state’s pandemic restrictions by attending a birthday dinner with multiple households in attendance, none of whom appeared to be wearing masks in the pictures.

Los Angeles County has seen an uptick in cases recently with nearly 6,000 reported on Wednesday following a record-high 7,593 the day before. Garcetti claims if cases continue to increase at a steady pace, “the county expects we will run out of hospital beds here in Los Angeles by Christmas-time.”

モデルナのワクチン承認を申請 ファイザーの当初供給は半分に

Moderna to apply for US & European emergency authorization as Covid-19 vaccine shows 94% efficacy in final analysis
Biotech company Moderna has said it will submit its Covid-19 vaccine candidate for emergency approval in the US and Europe after stage three trials concluded with positive results.

In a statement released on Monday, Moderna said that its vaccine has proven to be extremely effective against Covid-19.

According to the firm, final analysis from the trial shows their jab was 94.1 percent effective in stopping Covid-19 infections.

“Today’s primary analysis was based on 196 cases, of which 185 cases of COVID-19 were observed in the placebo group versus 11 cases observed in the mRNA-1273 group, resulting in a point estimate of vaccine efficacy of 94.1%,” the Moderna statement read.

Furthermore, no trial participants succumbed to a severe Covid infection, leading researchers to say the vaccine is 100 percent effective in preventing severe forms of the disease.

Moderna added that there were no serious safety concerns identified to date and that the vaccine named mRNA-1273 was “generally well tolerated.”

“We believe that our vaccine will provide a new and powerful tool that may change the course of this pandemic and help prevent severe disease, hospitalizations and death,” said Stéphane Bancel, chief executive officer of Moderna.

Following the positive trial results, the firm stated that it planned to immediately request an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and conditional approval from the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Moderna’s vaccine is one of four global frontrunners in the race for a safe and effective vaccine.

Russia's pioneering ‘Sputnik V’ candidate has reported 95 percent efficacy in early trials, while Pfizer and BioNTech's effort proved to be 95 percent effective in already concluded stage three trials.

BREAKING− Pfizer is slashing its expected delivery of vaccine doses from 100 million to 50 million because of production quality issues. Everyone needs 2 doses. So this is a big hit. #COVID19

2) to be clear, this is just the production supply for this year (2020). It was a raw material issue not factory issue. So hopefully they will be at full production in 2021.
