This sub is about rapid tests for covid19, esp. the $1 at-home 10-minute tests hypothesized by Michael Mina. They *could* be the solution to the pandemic: if everyone had them and isolate when the test shows they are infectious, the pandemic would die out in 6 weeks (according to Michael)

2023.06.05 12:29 theseawoof 6 y/o feverish for 5 days, we're nervous
We took our son to his primary on day two of the fever and were told "it's probably just food poisoning". Basically told us to let him poop it out. He had diarrhea on and off starting on day 2, which was the only other symptom presented along with his fever. He vomited once, which was on day three when his fever spiked. We have been getting more and more nervous because of how persistent the fever is. We can bring it down with Tylenol or Ibuprofen and general care, fluids, rag etc but it just keeps coming back every 2-3 hours and hits 103-104 every time.
Took him to ER yesterday, which was day four. They didn't test him for anything besides COVID, which he was negative for. This time we got Amoxicillin after bugging them about it. All the times he's been sick, whether stomach bug or flu virus, he's never had this persistent of a fever which makes me feel like there's something going on other than just a general virus. I know that I've personally never had a fever more than 2-3 days max. Not sure if I'm just a parent that is overreacting, or if I should be raising hell and getting a third opinion. He doesn't have any other symptoms besides this damn fever and occasional diarrhea. No stomach pain or tenderness, no cold like symptoms. Started coughing a little bit around the time he vomited. He's not extremely lethargic, in fact, once he breaks the fever he has a bit of energy and wants to hang out and play video games like the fever never happened, it's strange. Is it normal for a fever to last this long? Doctors didn't really say much other than what we already know to do. Wish they would have at leasted checked for potential bacterial infections in case he ate something bad.

2023.06.05 11:14 Remarkable-Bit7860 Is this possible ?
So I had an outbreak on my mouth 4 weeks ago while on holiday, the first time to the best of my knowledge, but I do remember testing positive for Hsv1 years back. Initially I had symptoms like chills and sore throat that subsided ina couple of days. Now 4 weeks later I got flu like symptoms (possibly covid, rapid test was not too clear) and mainly what is concerning me is swollen lymph nodes Uber right armpit and behind both ears.
My question is, would it be possible that these lymph nodes and body aches are related to hat outbreak 4 weeks ago?

2023.06.05 10:53 pktrekgirl Does this sound like long covid?
I am a middle aged female, fully vaccinated, including two boosters.
For the main part of the pandemic I socially distanced and used my mask. Kept my bubble extremely small and even got groceries via curbside pickup. Never even caught so much as a cold for 3 years.
In January 2023 I got covid for the first time and it was like a very bad flu. Was sick for 3 weeks. It was rough. Took Paxlovid during this bout; it was horrible but I took it anyway.
In May I got covid a second time, this time I was not nearly as sick; felt like a bad cold. Was sick for 6 days.
Since testing negative and going back to work, I have been coughing a lot; all the time. Additionally, I am tired all the time but have trouble falling asleep. My throat feels like it’s closing up and I get scared I will stop breathing, this makes sleep quality very low. I am totally exhausted.
Have had some brain fog since the first bout in January. I can’t remember when things happened in the recent past and need to write everything down to remember things like instructions and the times/places of appointments. I also forget basic words for things occasionally. I have a very strong vocabulary usually, but I keep forgetting words. Sometimes I worry if I’m getting dementia or something.
I am also itching a lot. Mostly under my right arm but also my calfs and feet.
Finally, I have had IBS for years, but now it’s much worse. I can’t remember the last time I had a normal bowel movement. And I have frequent gas - both farting and even some burping.
I’m worried that I’m sick. Maybe all or partly with long covid, maybe partly with something else.
Anyone know which, if any of these symptoms are long covid?
Thanks for any assistance.

2023.06.05 10:32 LOOPA_Dub Sent home tonight for going on vacation & having Covid
Let me give you some more context
I’ve been with this employer for only two months.
Three weeks in I got Covid and was required to not return to work for 5 days. My supervisor told me “only bitches take time off for Covid, if you use the Covid pay the company provides you’re a bitch.” This was our first altercation.
Fast forward a few weeks, he notices I have a week off. He scolds me about taking time off being so new, I explained that this was a vacation I had planned and paid for prior to working here and it was already approved by my manager and upper management. Strike two.
Fast forward to today, my first day back from vacation. He aggressively takes me to the back room, scolds me about how it “hurts the business” by missing so many days, that I am lucky I’m still employed because they “accommodate my schedule” because 2 out of the 4 days I work a week I have to leave at 5:30AM instead of 6AM because that’s when my wife leaves for work and I have to be home to watch my two children, this was my availability when I was hired and I was hired with that availability.
He was screaming at me like a child. I was in the middle of speaking and he literally yells at me and says “IM FUCKING SPEAKING TO YOU SHUT UP.” After I explained that he has no right to hold any of this against me he told me I need to find a new position or get another job and that I need to go home.
I told him that’s alright, I’m not working for you any way. I’m not going to be bullied for 1. Getting Covid (went to the doctor to get tested since my at home test was not “valid”) 2. My availability which was accepted upon being hired. 3. Taking an approved vacation that I was not paid for.
This guy constantly bragged to me about how he’s “fired” so many people & to me it seems like he’s the one hurting the team more than anyone. I understand the frustration about me getting Covid but, it’s not like I meant to & it was proven by a doctor that in fact, I had Covid.
Am I in the wrong here? Or is the giga chad want to be drill sergeant of stocking groceries in the right?
I am going to be open minded to all comments, I need some advice.

Hey all, I have worked very hard to get my euploid embryos - and it’s been quite a journey to this point. I am due to start an FET cycle in a few weeks but I have just tested positive for covid. It’s relatively mild, not really impacting me other than a sore throat and a little bunged up. I did yoga this morning not even realising it was Covid! I definitely don’t want to delay my cycle. Do you think it will be ok? Any positive stories?

2023.06.05 08:47 xartux I am a 27 year old male who was diagnosed with end stage liver disease, alcoholic hepatitis and severe chronic Cirrhosis last spring 2022. Alcoholism is the worst addiction I’ve ever experienced. No other drug has come close. It’s run rampant through my dad, grandpa, uncles and now me…
I was an innocent kid for most of my life. I had horrible untreated anxiety that I didn’t understand and it got the best of me when I turned 21. I had never really drank or done anything of the sorts until about 19-20 and then the day I turned 21 I was finally able to purchase liquor myself… and it got out of control.
I am 27 years old and was diagnosed last spring at 26 with Liver failure, alcoholic hepatitis and Cirrhosis of the liver with advanced scarring. I was rushed to the emergency trauma center near me in Minneapolis Minnesota after my now fiancée returned home from a work conference out of state and found me in our bedroom completely yellow, tremulous and swollen legs and fluid build up in my stomach. When she left the week before I went on what would be my last drinking bender.
For the past 6 years I was consuming at minimum a liter of 80 proof vodka all the way up to a 1.75 liter handle per day. I stopped once for 2 weeks in 2020 after a small medical scare and also became sick with covid. That’s the longest break I had for those 6 years up until my hospitalization.
I spent a week in the hospital as the doctors tried to do anything they could do to get my increasing liver enzymes and bilirubin down. I was yellow and in a lot of pain. I was immediately placed into CIWA withdrawal protocol and was monitored for worsening mental status and seizures.
I had an MRI done, 2 ultra sounds and countless testing on my first night. I was informed I would need to undergo a transplant in the future as long as they could combat my symptoms. After 3 days the doctors started losing hope of getting it to come down with proven methods. They were left with no choice but to discharge me after a few more days with experimental steroids.
I returned home and was bed ridden while my fiancé spoon fed these steroids once daily and we hoped for a positive outcome. A week later I had blood work done and my bilirubin was decreasing by the day. I was so relieved.
My family is filled with alcoholics and I feel like I was foolish to think it wouldn’t come for me too.
I have since had countless imaging and ultra sounds done that show permanent damage and cirrhotic liver with abnormally enlarged spleen that hurts like a MF. I am now almost 400 days sober and have lost a ton of weight. I finished up my outpatient treatment at the original hospital and gastro clinic here in Minneapolis. I am now getting set up with a liver specialist at the Mayo Clinic here. I will be there getting 2nd opinion tests and imaging done to determine my future. I will most likely need a transplant down the road.
I’m not here to lecture but I wanted to share my story in hopes it helps someone else out. Sober life was hard as hell at first but has gotten so much easier. I am proud of where I’m at but have a long way to go.
On the 3rd morning of my stay I was pretty certain I wasn’t going to make it out. I was able to keep my drinking a secret for 6 years and no one knew about my problem or never questioned me. I didn’t want to get caught and face the embarrassment to my family. I awoke that day and thought about how I was going to have to call up my family members, brother and sister and tell them I wouldn’t be around much longer. I couldn’t stop thinking about how I would never get to see my newly born niece grow up and how selfish my actions were. They would have been so taken off guard and would have to watch me go a slow death. My over was already shutting down and the only thing left was my kidneys next. After those shut down it’s game over.
The last 6 years of my life are a blur. I now run a small business from home while I build my life back up.
Anyways, sorry for the long winded story.
I went to the hospital last year spring 2022 and was diagnosed with advanced liver disease. Addiction can fuck off and so can alcohol.
I drank a liter of vodka a day for 6 years. Don’t be dumb like me and ignore the signs of illness after your body can’t take it anymore.
Here’s a few links with some of my medical experience from that incident. With 400 days under my belt I feel as though I can help someone and prevent making the same mistakes I did. https://imgur.com/gallery/IrwXhha https://imgur.com/gallery/7gpxNsy
This is a first for me and I’m only sharing this picture of me when I checked into the emergency room. I just want people to see what can happen in a short amount of heavy drinking time and what might await some alcoholics in their older years. https://imgur.com/gallery/lf5xKdl
Peace & love

New award recognizes dedication of DLA’s frontline workers during pandemic By Beth Reece
DLA Public Affairs
FORT BELVOIR, Va. –
A new lapel pin and certificate will soon be awarded to Defense Logistics Agency employees who regularly worked on-site or contributed to essential missions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Called the Frontline Hero Pin, the award covers work done by civilian employees between March 2020 through May 2022. About 9,000 employees are expected to receive the pin, said Joe Davenport, who manages the DLA Honorary Awards Program.
Eligibility is determined by approval authorities based on the nature of the qualifying COVID-19 operation or activity. Approval authorities include commanders or deputy commanders of major subordinate commands or directorates, the agency chief of staff and regional commanders.
The recognition was a joint development between DLA Human Resources and major subordinate commands to honor employees such as distribution process workers who helped the agency send lifesaving supplies to Defense Department and federal customers, Davenport said.
Employees’ work included equipping mobile hospitals and nursing homes with masks and gloves, distributing test kits and vaccinations, and even replenishing the Strategic National Stockpile.
“I encourage you to celebrate the remarkable resilience, extraordinary courage and exemplary devotion to duty that our employees demonstrated during this unprecedented period of uncertainty,” DLA Human Resources Director Sharyn Saunders said in a May 23 message to senior leaders announcing authorization of the award.
Pins and certificates have been sent to local organizations for distribution, but leaders are still determining recipients and signing certificates, Davenport added.
DLA’s awards team coordinated with the Institute of Heraldry to produce the pin design, which began with six prototypes. The pin is SILVER
and epoxy and includes the DLA emblem.
2023.06.05 08:06 statecheck When You Had COVID, Did You Feel Like You Were High?
I've used a fair amount of psychedelics in my life (side note: LSD world peace). I am very familiar with how they make me feel.
My first COVID infection, at least for part of it, it felt very much like a mild trip.
Later, when my wife contracted COVID, and I was around her the entire time she was quarantining, I had what might be described as LSD flashbacks. I've never had LSD flashbacks before, and considered them to be mostly a drug-war-scare-tactic myth. But there were a few episodes where I was looking at the leaves on the trees and they were shimmering and I was amazed, and I realized I was having an LSD flashback. I never tested positive that time, but since she was sick and we were together in a small house, I assume the virus was in my body, even if it wasn't enough to make me sick.
My second and third infection, I don't remember that as much. They were short infections, as I took Paxlovid.
I wonder if maybe what felt like a trip, was CNS damage. I heard a podcast with the comedian Duncan Trussell who described something similar, and he also has long COVID (smell/taste loss).

2023.06.05 07:41 Pandorasheaart My husband keeps kissing me while he is sick.
He is sick at least once every 3 months and it's always the end of the world for him. Soup in bed, can't go to work, the world is ending.
I have an autoimmune disease and every time I get sick it is genuinely debilitating. Even if it is just a cold. But even so, I still care for myself because asking him is often met with "Okay give me a bit" or he says that he forgot and sometimes he just straight up ignores me.
It NEVER FAILS, every time he gets sick, he tries to kiss me and is upset when I refuse. Sometimes I will get a couple of days of him asking over and over again and he will pout and say things like "you hate me" and" I guess I'm just gross"
I mostly ignore him now, I used to reassure him that he wasn't gross and that of course I loved him etc but after 7 years, it has gotten old. But after a few days of this, he will either grab me and kiss me against my will or he will wait for me to fall asleep and I will wake up with his tongue in my mouth.
And I get sick every time. I've told him no and that I CANNOT get sick and he just laughs it off or quickly apologizes and drops the conversation. And yes, he did this with covid too.
He has been sick for over a week. I've kept myself distant from him because I just started a new semester of school in a highly competitive program that I cannot miss days from AND just changed medicines (the Dr. told me to be cautious because I'm immunosuppressed atm) I was stressed and crying. He pinned me down on the bed and kissed me to "distract me"
I woke up very sick the next day and missed a test at school. I was so weak I literally could not open a bottle of water. I went to the doctor today, and I found out He gave me strep throat.
I am so tired and sick and angry. But thanks for reaching the end of my rant. Godspeed guys.

2023.06.05 07:30 GlumProduce6537 Panic attacks
Hey guys! Let me introduce myself first, my name is Bas, I’m from The Netherlands and I’m 22 years old.
My medical English isn’t that good so sorry in advance.
About 2 months ago I got a diagnosed with peri/myo after a mild covid infection . I had a fever of 41 degrees C and severe chest pain. In the hospital they asked me if I wanted to be resuscitated which kinda scared me. My troponine was 865 and CRP was 306.
After 4 days on cardiac monitoring and 3 days on the “normal” department they send me home, crp was 3 and troponine was 36. No sign of fluid around my heart and normal HR.
Doctors advise: colchicine and ibuprofen for 3 months, no sports, no alcohol and quit smoking.
I’ve been to the doctor to help me quit smoking and next week I should be smoke free after 10 years.
Now my problem:
I’ve been having issues with panic attacks because I lost trust in my own body, I’m afraid to drive a car for longer then 20 minutes (and I have a company in engine tuning so this has never been a problem begore) one time it got so bad that I thought I was having a heart attack and I called an ambulance.
I’ve been really stuffed lately like I’m not getting enough oxygen. So I went to the hospital again and they did an echo and blood lab. They said I was healing fine, troponine was 3 and crp was 0.8
Now since yesterday I got a fever of 38,6 and coughing, did a covid test it was negative but I’m already worried that I’m gonna be really sick again.
Please tell me I’m not the only one struggling with this and what helped for you guys to get over this?

2023.06.05 07:03 Ok-Willingness1925 Long Covid has destroyed me. Constant pain & agony.
Hello everyone. I'll start by saying that this is a very long post and I am new to the thread.
I just feel the need to vent/rant and let all this anger and frustration out onto the thread just in case anyone is going through the same ordeal as me; you are not alone.
This all started back in July of 2022 a week before my bday. I got infected with covid and had some of the worst congestion, brain fog, migraines and body pains of my life. I felt so drained and could hardly move without feeling exhausted. I did not have nor do I still have any of my vaccines or boosters. I was physically sick for 16 days but I had lingering brain fog and random aches and pains for 29 days after initially getting sick. Well, I started feeling better and started to resume life as normal but never felt 100%
I continued as nothing ever happened until 3 weeks later, I started getting the random aches and pains with small bouts of brain fog but nothing like the initial sickness and thought I had covid again. I did a test and it came back negative. Then after a week I started getting some extreme stabbing chest pains, chest discomfort, heavy brain fog, mild confusion and fasciculations. Went to the ER multiple times and had a work up and bloods done by my family doctor and everything came back normal. No heart issues, no diseases or anything. Told me I had anxiety (never had anxiety in my life) so I was unsure what to believe. This continued for a few months and it really started to affect my mental state as I was unsure what I was experiencing or dealing with. I started to develop health anxiety and experience high levels of stress and panic because of this. Had panic attacks on multiple occasions as I would feel some of these aches and pains and they would get so bad at times.
I then had a brief episode of the symptoms just coming to a stop, I woke up one morning and felt normal again. I was in shock and awe and felt like I could finally get back to normal life. Well, that only lasted a bloody month and I went right back into it again. Woke up one morning and boom, it was back, all my symptoms. FULL. FORCE.
Fast forward to today, it's been 2 months since I last felt normal and while some days are worse than others, I can only hope we all find some relief some time soon. I just have never felt the same since I've had Covid and it sucks. Cheers to you all.
My symptoms are listed below and some are caused by the anxiety flaring up.
-chest pains & pressure -globus sensation -ear fullness/pressure -tinnitus -migraines -headaches -jaw aches -fasciculations -blurry vision -nose pressure/sinus pressure -butterflies in stomach -tingling & burning in extremities -heartburn -body aches and pains -muscle tension ALL THE TIME -POTS -post nasal drip like crazy -fatigue -occasional muscle weakness

Canadian Federal Elections 101
Canada has inherited its political system from the United Kingdom, sticking to Westminster parliamentary system ever since. This means, that unlike in the United States, the outcome of Canadian elections are won by whichever party manages to elect the greatest number on Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of Canada, allowing the leader of this party to assume the office of Prime Minister.
The Senate of Canada provides for a stark contrast, since despite being originally designed to ensure provincial representation, the upper house remains unelected and is largely subjected to the politics in the House of Commons.
When no party is able to secure more than 50 per cent of seats in the House, a leader of a political party that is able to command more than 50 per cent of MPs, for example through singing supply and confidence
or coalition agreements with other parties, becomes Prime Minister instead. Historically, however, the largest party in the House of Commons tends to form a monitory government, when it commands a plurality of MPs, rather than an outright majority. This allows the largest party to remain in power, but it has to rely on MPs from other political factions to pass crucial pieces of legislation, especially when it comes to votes that indicate parliamentary confidence, such as federal budgets. Losing those votes, would effectively mean that the current government has to either be completely re-staffed with new Cabinet Ministers, or call a snap election.
However, minority governments remained fairly uncommon in Canada, since the current voting system, called First-Past-the-Post (FPTP), allows for individual MPs to win their respective ridings - also known as constituencies - to be elected into the House of Commons with a simple plurality of votes. Thus, a political party can win most seats in the House of Commons through strategically placing their bets on ridings with very tight margins, where just one extra vote may allow their nominee to win a permanently seat, effectively making all votes for the opposition candidate in that riding meaningless.
For example, the Liberal Party of Canada has won the last two federal elections with a plurality of seats in the House of Commons, despite coming only 2nd to the Conservative Party of Canada during popular vote
. The Liberals, despite becoming the largest party in the House still fell short of winning the majority of seats, being forced to rely on the New Democratic Party, that represented are more progressive social democratic part of the electorate, for crucial votes. Later, the Government has called a snap election aiming to get their desired majority, but failed, and had to sign a formal Supply and Confidence Agreement with the NDP, that included a massive package of social programmes, such as the recently implemented national dental care and prescription drug insurance.
However, while enjoying a steady lead in polls vis-a-vis, the federal Conservatives during the pandemic, the Liberals had experienced persistent slump as post-pandemic recovered coupled with sticky inflation and rapidly deteriorating housing crisis. As the Federal Conservatives have moved to the right following the election of a new leader, they have utilised concurrent economic challenges and liberal economic policy, blaming the current government's pandemic related emergency spending coupled with expansion of social programs as the root cause for inflation into collapsing housing affordability.
As Canada had to respond to America's Inflation Reduction Act with a new public investment into green transition, conservative criticism of the Trudeau government has become ever more vocal, with fiscal deficits presumably exacerbating, concurrent inflationary pressures.
Liberal policies, especially introducing the federal backstop mechanism for carbon pricing, has also spurred
, vicious opposition, among Conservatives, especially those living in the Western Canada, that culminated in the razor-thin re-election of the United Conservatives in the oil-producing province of Alberta. The federal response to the freedom, convoy protest, as well as the general push, forever wider collective community during the pandemic, has created some fertile soil for the opposition, Conservatives to capitalise on, especially as the more moderate leader of the party had been ousted shortly after the convoy protest.
After more than eight years in government, the liberal party has also been embroiled in several corruption and ethics candles, including the SNC-Lavallin affair
, the pandemic-era ArriveCan App scandal
, and, most recently, the accusations of Chinese electoral interference, and Chinese police stations operating in Canada.
In fact, the situation for the current government has become so dire. It's a point, but more than 80% of forecasters projected a Conservative minority government has the most probable outcome for the next election. According to some polls, the Liberals would be unable to form a government, even with the support of the New Democratic Party. The liberal convention in late spring 2023, didn't provide much of a relief either, how's the party continued to lack a comprehensive platform to combat the issue of housing and affordability - something that steadily climbed the rate of priorities for many Canadians, to become the most pressing issue, when deciding who to vote for. If anything, the Conservative party has become the most popular political force, among younger Canadians, with their laser, sharp focus on the issue of inflation and housing affordability.
The issue of housing affordability has become central to the Conservative Convention, where the Party has committed to "restoring" home ownership across the country, through planning laws deregulation and "removing resections on the supply of housing". This would see the federal government to tie federal spending on housing to municipalities shortening approval times, waive HST/GST for housing, as well as allow landlords to re-invest their profits into new housing tax-free. The Conservative convention also proposed federal infrastructure funding to be linked to higher-density housing construction.
What did, however, play in favour of the current government, what is the time. Within Canadian Parliamentary system, the Prime Minister can call an election effectively anytime, so long their term doesn't exceed the four year threshold, that was approaching at Fall 2025, supported by the Supply and Confidence Agreement with New Democrats.
As inflation in North America has started slowly subsiding toreturn to the 2% target in early fall 2024
, Trudeau has managed to re-gain some the economic credibility his government has seemingly lost. The Liberals have also continued their tilt to make some inroads into the NDP camp, with the Federal Budget 2024 going heavily on Net Zero and Green Transition.
However, the Liberals also had to deal with a political deadline, whether to call and election before or after the Budget 2025 would've been published. The former might allow the LPC to avoid the criticism of "buying up votes" that the party received after calling the snap election shortly after introducing their Federal Budget in 2021. However, Trudeau also had a stake at deferring the election for long as possible, hoping that waiving inflationary pressure might open up more space for the Liberals to re-gain the economic ground over the Conservatives.
Federal Election 2025
After long deliberation, the federal Cabinet has opened to hold an election in late March 2025
, right at the time when a government would have normally tabled their budget. The election that both the Liberals and the Conservatives have approached after almost a year or neck-and-neck perforce in the polls, with Trudeau having a minuscule advantage in personal ratings.
The economy, especially housing affordability, have become two main issues during this election, closely followed by healthcare - namely access to family physicians and waiting times for selected procedures - and the issue of inflation still lingering at the back of the public debate.
Trudeau himself because a matter for the debate, with the Liberals banking on his personal likability, while Federal Conservatives continuously pressed with corruption and ethical scandals and corruption allegations, combined with the Liberal campaign continuously bringing up the "electability issue" of their opponents.
With the Tories enjoying slight lead on the matter of economic competence, the Liberals opted to treat the housing crisis as a matter of social policy, while banking heavily on personal popularity of Trudeau himself. From the policy-standpoint, LPC Election Platform has effectively copied the proposal originally voiced during the Conservative Convention. Namely, waiving GST/HST for housing construction, allowing landlords to re-invest their profits into constructing more units tax-free, as well as linking federal spending to new housing development and liberalising permitting process. The difference with the Conservatives was the focusing on new federal spending to combat housing affordability.
Liberal election promises involved the commitment for new federal housing construction to exceed population growth by the end of the first term, through the government directly contracting private developers to build more affordable housing, and task the Canada Infrastructure Development Corporation to provide funding to non-market housing in numbers meeting or exceeding population growth in larger metropolitan areas on Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, and across Atlantic Canada.
Unlike the Tories, Trudeau also went further, promising the government would cover development charges for projects that included affordable housing. The Liberals have also committed to conducting of affordable rental housing, aimed at younger Canadians and those who are yet to start cloning the property ladder. Conservatives on the other hand emphasised Trudeau's poor track on housing affordability, combined focusing on making home ownership more affable through market-driven construction of new units for sale.
Both Team Blue and Team Red have committed to expediting the arrival of new skilled trades professionals, especially those working in the housing sector, including interest-free loans to have their qualifications recognised or to up-skill their existing credentials. Liberals however, took a step further, promising automatic Permanent Residency who has worked in residential construction after 1 year, as well issuing Open Work Permits - exempt from the Labour Market Impact Assessment - to anyone with construction work experience willing to come to Canada, so long they continue working in the construction sector for the majority of their time before obtaining permanent residency. The Tories on their part suggested granting PR automatically after they've worked in construction for at least 5 years.
On the matter of banning foreign buyers, both parties have committed to banning home purchases in Canada for those who do not hold Canadian citizenship or are not Permanent Residents of Canada, with Liberals maintaining existing exemptions, so long the person buying has invested an equivalent amount in affordable housing construction.
Rhetorically, the Liberals have echoed the National Housing Act 1938, suggesting their government would run fiscal deficits to finance nation-wide home construction, especially affordable rental units. CPC has openly accused Trudeau of "policy stealing" choosing to emphasis permitting deregulation, subsidies for new units, and investing more construction professionals.
Healthcare & Social Care
Federal Conservatives have focused their attack in increasing waiting times, as well as increasing shortage of medical professionals across the country. Liberals, however, aimed to conservative proposals to introduce more private providers into the system, while emphasising their expansion of public health insurance that now covers both dental care and prescription drugs. Both parties suggested increasing the immigration intake for doctors, nurses, medical researches, providing financial support to have their credentials recognised in Canada as well as to update their skills.
The Liberals have however suggested lowering tuition rates international students who come to study health, social care, and eduction, granted them access to domestic rates of tuition, as well as a designated pathway to Permanent Residency for health, eduction, and social care who have obtained at least 1560 hours of Canadian work experience, and received at least part of their eduction in Canada. This would come as a supplementary measure, with domestic students becoming eligible for federal student loan write off if they have accumulated at least 1 year of post-graduation work experience in health, social care, or education - so long their degree is in the same field.
The Liberals have also committed to covering a Royal Commission to introduce a national social care insurance programme for seniors and people with disabilities.
The Conservatives suggest introducing "full expensing" allowing companies to deduct up 120 per cent of their expenses on machinery, equipment, and non-residential property, akin to UK's Super Deduction
, to combat Canada's low investment levels. They also propose to introduce tax credits for Canadian companies to up-skill their workers, as well as increased federal funding to provinces to support job training and second career programmes and labour market integration.
The Liberals suggest increasing the minimum wage in federally-regulated institutions, linking as a proportion of executive pay. LPC also pledged to introduce at least 4 weeks of paid vacation after 1 year on employment, with additional increases in line with employee tenure, as outlined in their Convention 2023, while brining paid leave of up to 6 weeks a year, allowing recipients to tradition onto disability payments after that.
Both parties have committed to supporting Employee Ownership Trusts, as well as introduction of worker representation on corporate boards in federally-regulated industries. Team Red however to it a step further, suggesting they will employee ownership mandatory for large corporations , with the only exemption provided for profit-sharing schemes.
Both parties have also supported reforming Canada's Employment Insurance Program:
The Conservatives suggest introducing Individual EI Savings Accounts
that any Canadian can access whenever they are let go of their job or decide to quit. The proposed accounts would be funded through mandatory employer and employee contributions and could also be used to pay for labour training and re-skilling, with means-tested federal assistance available for those who's exhausted their accounts. Tories also suggest expanding current marginal earnings projection to apply to both individual and household income. The party also suggests waiving EI Premiums and provide rebates for C/QPP Contribution rebates to those not paying federal income tax, to guarantee every Canadian can earn at least $1000 a month free of payroll deductions.
Trudeau on the other hand suggested making EI coverage universal, and providing up to 90 per cent wage replacement in the first month of claim, while also introducing EI Benefit Floor, where every Canadian would be entitled to a minimum benefit equal to federal minimum wage regardless of their original earnings, for as long as they have enough insurable hours. The Liberal plan also introduces expands "working while on claim" provision, allowing people collecting EI benefits to have their wages supplemented through the program so their total paycheque reaches at least 90 per cent of their average 5-year earnings at all time
s, regardless whether the claimant is eligible for EI Regular Benefits. EI Parental Benefits are set to be fixed at at least 60 per cent of the family's income, subject o the benefit floor. Liberals suggest paying for the programme through waiving maximum insurable earnings to levy EI Premiums on all income of an individual, while introducing cap on benefits linked to median regional wages. However, the basic exemption shall be aligned to the federal income tax minimum threshold. Surpluses generated should be used to pay for expanded WWoC provisions and putting EI Operating Account back into surplus.
Both parties also committed to brining in a Canada Savers' Credit
that mirrors both the amounts and eligibly criteria of the GST/HST tax credit
, but is instead deposited in people's Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs)
and automatically invested into corporate equity. Tories and Liberals also support introducing automatic enrolment for Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs), Registered Eduction Savings Plans (RESPs), Registered Disability Savings Plans (RDSP), First Homebuyer Savings Accounts (FHSAs)
and TFSAs upon either birth of obtaining Canadian tax residency for eligible non-Canadians. While the Conservative proposal would new accounts automatically linked to existing financial institutions the individual already has an account in, the Liberals instant new accounts should be automatically assigned to a new independent crown corporation, so long the primary account holder haven't decided to the move their registered accounts to an eligible financial institution.
Both parties pitch the policy as a potential interim solution to address Canada's sky-high household debt
, through increased asset ownership and participation in stock markets.
When it comes to fiscal policy, the Liberal Government suggests they'll keep their "structural deficit" - as defined by tax revenues versus programme expedites - bellow the rate of economic growth over the 10 year period. LPC however is open they'll not restrain their spending on new housing construction, Ottawa set to absorb almost all the costs of housing under the liberal plan. The Conservatives on the other hand suggest introducing the $1 for $1 rule for federal expenditure, where every dollar of new spending has to be offset by a dollar in spending cuts or increased taxes, suggesting to balance the budget in their first 5 years in the office.
Somewhat comically, the Liberals seem to be attacking Conservative proposals on the grounds it may bring back the pain on the nighties - referring to the Chretien austerity era
- especially in Atlantic Canada and the Regions of Quebec where benefit dependency ratios have traditionally been elevated.
The Liberals have also committed to expand existing childcare agreements, to make childcare services and spare available to anyone, and drastically reduce wait times for subsidised spots.
Energy & Environment
The issue has surprisingly played a somewhat muted role during this election, as CPC has contained to opposed federal price on carbon, pressuring the idea of turning Canada into a "natural resource superpower". Liberals on the other hand boasted about their massive investment into Net Zero Transition, while also attacking the Tories one potential fiscal penalties that the government would assume after cancelling the carbon tax. Team Red had also opened to cling to previous commitments of the Conserve Leader to ban overseas oil, which Ontario, and Quebec, as well as Atlantic Canada remain fairly dependent on, due to lack of oil transportation infrastructure from western oil production facilities. Considering the fact Quebec has remained one of Liberal strongholds even at the lowest, as well as the party's perceived electability in the province, CPC would've had even harder to fight for the votes in Quebec.
Tipping the Scales
However, what truly decided this election, was something that may in the future divide the country even more, namely the issue of the French language. Something that has been present in Canadian politics for generations, but something that this time brought a party over the finish line, while completely tanking their opponents.
While both leaders fluent in French, having French Canadian roots, combined with an almost unchallenged dominance of the local Bloc Québécois, it seemed quite unlikely either party would be able to gain any meaningful advantage in Quebec, until both parties have revealed their election manifestos.
Here was the moment the Liberals played their cards best. Namely, the party has committed to supplying French language both within and outside Quebec, through drastically bolstering access to Francophone eduction across the country. The Liberals has committed to introducing a brand-new federal agency tasked with facilitating access to French eduction and integration services - Francisation Canada.
The agency was set to provide free-at-use eduction in French, while also providing up to $1000 a month in finical assistance to immigrants
who were willing to learn French. On top of that, the Liberals have committed to make existing Explore and Odyssey Programmes
more universal, integrating them into school curriculums across the country. The Party has also committed to negotiating bilateral agreements with all provinces to provide additional funding and guarantee access to services, including eduction in French across Canada, while making French a mandatory subject for Early Learning & Childcare, as well as in secondary education. LPC would also waive tuition fees for post-secondary eduction in French, and negotiate agreements with other francophone countries, to facilitate French-speaking immigration into Canada and Quebec.
Thus, on the night of the election, the sudden realisation waived through the country. The Liberal Party managed to protect their urban ridings, even in West, as their pledge to "spend whether it takes to make houses and rents affordable for everyone" managed to persuade swing urban voters across the country, combined with their massive investment in green transition. The Tories has also lost their lead in Atlantic Canada, where an idea of a massive EI expansion has resonated with voters much more than the concept of individual accounts. Massive subsidies in battery production have also helped the Liberals to protect their seats across Ontario, especially in former industrial towns. However, what actually brought Trudeau over the finish line, was Quebec. The Combination of absolutely massive investments into green tech, coupled with new social programs, and proposed childcare expansion, on top of the Liberal pledge to "protect and promote the French language from Coast to Coast to Coast" allowed the party to make some significant inroads across the province, despite loosing some suburban ridings, Central Canada gave Trudeau yet another chance to form yet another minority Liberal government.

2023.06.05 06:43 A_horse_a_piece77 Repeated COVID-19 Vaccination Weakens Immune System: Study
| || | submitted by A_horse_a_piece77 to DoorCountyALT [link] [comments]
Authored by Zachary Stieber via The Epoch Times
Repeated COVID-19 vaccination weakens the immune system, potentially making people susceptible to life-threatening conditions such as cancer, according to a new study. https://preview.redd.it/cfule5gvp44b1.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d3cf1449c3233643aa4da8415e9856bf36857adc
Multiple doses of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines lead to higher levels of antibodies called IgG4, which can provide a protective effect. But a growing body of evidence indicates that the “abnormally high levels” of the immunoglobulin subclass actually make the immune system more susceptible to the COVID-19 spike protein in the vaccines, researchers said in the paper.
They pointed to experiments that were performed on mice: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2589004222017515
that found multiple boosters on top of the initial COVID-19 vaccination “significantly decreased” protection against both the Delta and Omicron virus variants and testing: https://www.science.org/doi/full/10.1126/sciimmunol.ade2798
that found a spike in IgG4 levels after repeat Pfizer vaccination, suggesting immune exhaustion: https://www.theepochtimes.com/health/immune-exhaustion-emerges-after-3rd-vaccine-dose-current-findings_5007886.html
Studies have detected higher levels of IgG4 in people who died with COVID-19 when compared to those who recovered: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-021-95045-z
and linked the levels with another known determinant of COVID-19-related mortality, the researchers also noted: https://ard.bmj.com/content/79/10/1277.abstract
A review of the literature also showed that vaccines against HIV, malaria, and pertussis also induce the production of IgG4.
“In sum, COVID-19 epidemiological studies cited in our work plus the failure of HIV, Malaria, and Pertussis vaccines constitute irrefutable evidence demonstrating that an increase in IgG4 levels impairs immune responses,” Alberto Rubio Casillas, a researcher with the biology laboratory at the University of Guadalajara in Mexico and one of the authors of the new paper, told The Epoch Times via email.
The paper was published by the journal Vaccines in May. https://www.mdpi.com/2076-393X/11/5/991
Pfizer and Moderna officials didn’t respond to requests for comment.
Both companies utilize messenger RNA (mRNA) technology in their vaccines.
Dr. Robert Malone, who helped invent the technology, said the paper illustrates why he’s been warning about the negative effects of repeated vaccination.
“I warned that more jabs can result in what’s called high zone tolerance, of which the switch to IgG4 is one of the mechanisms. And now we have data that clearly demonstrate that’s occurring in the case of this as well as some other vaccines,” Malone, who wasn’t involved with the study, told The Epoch Times.
“So it’s basically validating that this rush to administer and re-administer without having solid data to back those decisions was highly counterproductive and appears to have resulted in a cohort of people that are actually more susceptible to the disease.”
The weakened immune systems brought about by repeated vaccination could lead to serious problems, including cancer, the researchers said.
