Larry King Fighting COVID-19 From Los Angeles Hospital Bed: Reports

Talk show host Larry King has been hospitalized in Los Angeles for more than a week with coronavirus symptoms, according to multiple reports.

King, 87, is being treated in a region where health care resources have been stretched to the breaking point as patients with severe COVID-19 have filled intensive care units and spilled into hallways across Southern California. His family has not been allowed to visit him because of safety regulations, CNN reported.

King has faced a number of health scares in the past, including a 2017 lung cancer diagnosis, past heart-related procedures and a major 1987 heart attack. He also has Type 2 diabetes.

Interesting since there are indications that is where Trump will flee to a day or two before Biden is installed as president. The coward flees the scene of the disaster he has created, and maybe to avoid a summons.

CRAP!

 

Experts fear a new South African strain of COVID might be resistant to the vaccines1
   

Some medical experts have been expressing confidence that the COVID-19 vaccines from Moderna, Pfizer and others will be effective against a new, highly contagious COVID-19 variant that has been slamming the United Kingdom. But U.K. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has a dire warning about a COVID-19 variant that has been spreading in coastal areas of South Africa. That variant, according to Hancock, might be resistant to the vaccines.

Hancock told BBC Radio, "I'm incredibly worried about the South African variant. This is a very, very significant problem…. It's even more of a problem than the U.K. new variant."

John Bell, an immunologist at Oxford University in the U.K., is worried as well. Bell helped develop AstraZeneca and Oxford's COVID-19 vaccine, and according to Bell, there is a "big question" mark over whether or not that vaccine and others will protect against the South African variant.

CBS News' Sarah Carter reports that Bell said it was "unlikely" that the South African variant would render the vaccines from AstraZeneca/Oxford and others ineffective, but he did say that there might need to be adjustments so that the vaccines will be as effective as possible against that variant.

Oxford Professor Shabir Madhi, who worked on the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine, told CBS News that more than 13 different COVID-19 variants have been identified in South Africa since the pandemic began — and the new one, 501.V2, is by far the most disturbing mutation he has seen.

when even Ezra Levant was saying he was disappointed, you knew something was going to happen....

Former CHQR talk radio host Dave Rutherford & political columnist Rick Bell of the Calgary Sun as well. Both staunch, staunch conservatives who wield a lot of power. Rutherford just tore a strip off Kenney yesterday. Bell was on the attack since Friday.

I have read that making changes to the vaccines for these variants is very easy & takes just a few weeks.
