Pho Barred, Again . . .

Yes, Pho Barr was so good on Tuesday that we had to do it again today for lunch. We got there right after they opened at 11, and they were quickly very busy. And they do a brisk take-out business too.

Just as delicious as the first time. And there will be more times, too.
I got a lot of email comments about my A Sad Story blog from yesterday.
It all boils down to the last few screens.

A Sad Story 3

A Sad Story 2

Swedish study of 840,000 shows vaccine efficacy at 7 months at ZERO or LESS.

In Sweden, a new study followed 840,000 people who were double vaccinated for nine months which is longer than any previous study. The researchers matched them or “paired them” with another 840,000 people who were the same, age, sex and from the same area.

Out of this 1.6 million pooled sample, 27,000 people went on to get infected, and most of them were unvaccinated (21,000). So that’s not surprising, but underlying this data was an extraordinary trend showing efficacy falling month after month. In the first two to four weeks, the double vaccinated were very well protected. But by nine months later, the efficacy was not just zero, but negative.

The study considered protection against severe disease too, which lasts for longer, but after 6 months, the older men and people most at risk of Covid were more likely to catch Covid that the matched same-age unvaccinated controls they were paired with.

Nine months after vaccination, the average person is still less likely to end up in hospital, but protection is trending downwards for everyone.

Do the words, BOOSTER, BOOSTER, BOOSTER ring a bell?

4,500 double jabbed people have died in England after contracting Covid – most since August

So they needed a booster?
