Kelleen Tait follows along with a virtual spin class at UNITE YQL during Alberta’s second wave of COVID-19.

Kelleen Tait relies on her weekly workout sessions to keep grounded and manage her stress.

“During the first lockdown, I didn’t know what to do.”

With new Alberta gym capacity restrictions in place, she’s found a way to keep moving: a rent-a-bike program and virtual spin classes from local studio UNITE YQL.

“It’s way harder than I would work out on my own and it really keeps me going,” Tait said.

For her, it’s not just about getting a sweat in. She says it allows her to still feel connected with instructors and a community she loves.

“As we’re all kind of shutting our doors and going into a bit more of an isolation mode, being able to generate that community is such a wonderful thing to be a part of and to support,” Tait said. “Especially when it’s [a local business] and it’s right in our downtown core.”

Owner of UNITE YQL, Vanessa Bishop, said it’s been a lifeline for her business and the supportive community they’ve worked to build over the last few years.

“The virtual program has allowed us to keep moving even though our physical space is temporarily closed.”

Although the decision to rent out expensive equipment was difficult, Bishop says it’s brought the studio’s high-energy barre and spin classes directly into clients’ homes. 

“[We can keep] giving hollers and encouraging the riders, because that’s the whole experience with us… It’s a fun atmosphere.”

The Lethbridge YMCA will also be offering virtual classes for members starting next week.

“There’s going to be fitness classes, yoga classes, wellness classes and all sorts of other items that will serve our community the best possible,” YMCA of Lethbridge Interim General Manager Scott Boyd said.

“We realize that everyone is dealing with this in all different ways.”

Boyd said a new gym space is now open on the facility’s main floor for those looking to move around safely.

Tait says she plans to continue riding out the pandemic while supporting local business.

“I’m actually moving and I keep motivated,” she said. “It’s been great from a mental health aspect.”

She encourages others who might be interested in upping their at-home workouts to give it a spin.

Vir Biotech CEO says his covid-19 medicine offers promise for next outbreak

Vir Biotechnology Inc.’s stock has lost some of its luster after quadrupling earlier this year as competition heats up for Covid-19 antibody therapies. Yet its chief executive officer is looking ahead to the next viral scourge.

With two well-heeled competitors ahead of it, Vir has pared a February surge to a still impressive 122% leap this year. Eli Lilly & Co.’s antibody treatment received an emergency use authorization on Nov. 9 and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc.’s therapy got its nod over the weekend. Vir’s medicine is unique because it targets a variety of coronaviruses, CEO George Scangos said.

It “has the potential not only to be effective against Covid-19, but it has a reasonable chance of also being effective against the next coronavirus outbreak,” Scangos said in an interview. An interim look at late-stage data for VIR-7831 is expected in January.

Regeneron has touted its two-antibody cocktail as being better than single-antibody treatments like those from Lilly or Vir. Yet Scangos, a former Biogen Inc. chieftain, said that while Lilly and Regeneron’s medicines block the ability of the virus to infect cells, the virus could evade these antibodies by mutating.

‘Babe Ruth’

“Would you rather have two random baseball players or Babe Ruth?,” he said. “It’s not just the number but the quality and the characteristics of the antibody.”

Vir’s antibody was developed not from a Covid-19 patient but from one who’d recovered from severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, which is also caused by a coronavirus. The company chose an antibody that also works against Covid-19 and Scangos postulates that it responds to something in the SARS and Covid viruses that hasn’t changed over years of viral evolution.

He also sees potential advantage for Vir’s antibody in its engagement of part of the immune system where Lilly and Regeneron’s molecules have had less potent activity.

Baird’s Madhu Kumar, the only analyst with a sell-equivalent rating on Vir, is skeptical. He said this particular component of Lilly and Regeneron’s antibodies may be what led to some safety signals and “could trigger inflammatory cascades that could be detrimental to patients.” This particularly concerns hospitalized patients, which Vir is still studying, Kumar told Bloomberg.

Email requests for comment to Lilly and Regeneron weren’t returned.

Much of Kumar’s skepticism is tied to Vir’s valuation. Even after the stock pulled way back from a Feb. 27 record, it’s still has more than doubled this year. He’s also wary of the market for antibodies in general because successful vaccine results from Pfizer Inc. and partner BioNTech SE as well as Moderna Inc. have blunted its longer term “tail value.”

Outside of Covid-19, Kumar has a positive view on Vir. “There’s a real company behind this,” he said, calling out Vir’s hepatitis B RNAi platform.

Others on Wall Street take a more optimistic view with five analysts deeming it a buy, and one with a hold rating. The average analyst price target of $55 suggests the Street expects shares may almost double over the next 12 months.

At rehab hospital, this four-legged friend offers his own brand of medicine

Toby and REHAB Hospital of the Pacific’s Kasey Alexander work with patient Lakeisha Sato. The canine is part of the hospital’s rehabilitation team, assisting in physical and occupational therapy sessions.

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) – At REHAB Hospital of the Pacific, a 2-year-old yellow labrador offers his own brand of medicine.

Toby is the four-legged member of REHAB’s staff.

“He’s here Monday through Friday, 7:30 to 4. He works a full day and sees many many patients,” said Kasey Alexander, REHAB’s animal-assisted clinical therapist.

“He goes to every floor and even visits the outpatients.”

Patient Lakeisha Sato is getting stronger thanks to Toby. Their toss and retrieve exercises are helping her regain the use of her left hand.

“When I knew I could do it and I had support from staff and a dog, oh, that was even better!” she said.

Alexander is Toby’s handler. They’ve worked together since August, helping with physical, occupational and even speech therapy.

“We have some patients that have strokes and brain injury. They may struggle even saying his name,” she said.

Toby was trained by Assistance Dogs of Hawaii to obey 90 commands. His disposition is a bonus.

“He just brings comfort and healing and just a lot of joy, especially in the midst of a pandemic when there’s limited visitors,” Alexander said.

Sato has two weeks to go before she goes home to Maui. Toby has taught her a valuable lesson.

“Don’t give up. It gets easier,” she said.

Alexander survived cancer and was a REHAB patient before joining the team.

“I wanted to give back, and I wanted to bring some healing, some hope to people,” she said.

She knows how tough the road to recovery is and how Toby lightens patients’ loads.

“He may start chasing his tail. He may role on his back to get belly rubs. He knows exactly what they need at that moment,” she said.

Alexander is also a licensed mental health counselor. She teaches people how to counter stress through grounding and breathing exercises, and practicing gratitude.

Toby has his own methods that work wonders.

UAE’s Aster offers free fitness sessions, giveaways, discounted health check-ups

Dubai: Free fitness sessions, rewards, giveaways and discounted health check-ups on select days — a UAE-based health care group is going all out to promote fitness, health and wellbeing as the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2020 gets underway.

The move comes in the wake of the health care group – Aster Hospitals & Clinics UAE – becoming the official Hospitals and Clinics partner of the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2020.

The group, which has a network of four hospitals and 90 clinics in the country, said it is supporting the vision of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, to boost a healthy lifestyle through a simple task of performing 30 minutes of activity for 30 days straight, and thereby tackle the rising levels of obesity.

As official partner of DFC 2020, Aster said it will put all hands-on-deck to help residents do their part towards an active lifestyle. In order to achieve this objective, the group has launched a #LiveBetterwithAster campaign for residents of Dubai that will consist of free sessions with fitness experts and health checks at the Fitness Villages in Quranic Park and Kite Beach. In addition, residents can work on their own fitness and get rewarded for it through participation in contests and giveaways where they can win gift hampers and vouchers. Residents will also be able to avail special discounts in health check-ups, between October 30 and November 28, and avail them at any of the Aster hospitals and clinics in UAE before December 31, 2020.

Dr Sherbaz Bichu, CEO of Aster Hospitals & Clinics UAE, said, “As leading healthcare providers in the region, the objectives of the Dubai Fitness Challenge work in symbiosis with our long-term goals to improve quality of life of the residents of the country. As official partners, Aster Hospitals & Clinics will be working on various initiatives to help motivate residents of Dubai to inculcate fitness regimes as part of their daily lifestyle. We have also launched several initiatives to motivate our own employees to participate in this campaign.”

Aster has also launched the Aster Wellbeing Programme, a group-wide campaign to drive employee wellbeing through individual and group initiatives during the month of November. Various fitness sessions are being conducted in various Aster hospital and clinic units for their employees, as well as employees based in Aster units across seven countries. Fitness challenges and activities have also been introduced for employees to participate in and support their own overall wellbeing.

Fauci warns of covid-19 surge, offers blunt assessment of Trump’s response

President Trump’s repeated assertions the United States is “rounding the turn” on the novel coronavirus have increasingly alarmed the government’s top health experts, who say the country is heading into a long and potentially deadly winter with an unprepared government unwilling to make tough choices.

39 times Trump said the coronavirus would go away



“We’re in for a whole lot of hurt. It’s not a good situation,” Anthony S. Fauci, the country’s leading infectious-disease expert, said in a wide-ranging interview late Friday. “All the stars are aligned in the wrong place as you go into the fall and winter season, with people congregating at home indoors. You could not possibly be positioned more poorly.”

Fauci, a leading member of the government’s coronavirus response, said the United States needed to make an “abrupt change” in public health practices and behaviors. He said the country could surpass 100,000 new coronavirus cases a day and predicted rising deaths in the coming weeks. He spoke as the nation set a new daily record Friday with more than 98,000 cases. As hospitalizations increase, deaths are also ticking up, with more than 1,000 reported Wednesday and Thursday, bringing the total to more than 229,000 since the start of the pandemic, according to health data analyzed by The Washington Post.

Fauci’s blunt warnings come as Trump has rallied in states and cities experiencing record surges in infections and hospitalizations in a last-ditch effort to convince voters he has successfully managed the pandemic. He has held maskless rallies with thousands of supporters, often in violation of local health mandates.

Even as new infections climb in 42 states, Trump has downplayed the virus or mocked those who take it seriously. “Covid-19, covid, covid, covid,” he said during one event, lamenting that the news media gives it too much attention. In another rally, he baselessly said that U.S. doctors record more deaths from covid-19, the disease the coronavirus causes, than other nations because they get more money.

“I mean our doctors are very smart people. So what they do is they say, ‘I’m sorry but everybody dies of covid,’ ” Trump said Friday at a rally in Waterford Township, Mich., without offering any evidence.

Fauci said former vice president Joe Biden’s campaign “is taking it seriously from a public health perspective.” Trump, Fauci said, is “looking at it from a different perspective.” He said that perspective was “the economy and reopening the country.”

[Tracking coronavirus cases across the U.S.]

Fauci, who once took a starring role in the response and briefed the president almost every day as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, described a disjointed response as cases surge. Several current and former senior administration officials said the White House is almost entirely focused on a vaccine, even though experts warn it is unlikely to be a silver bullet that ends the pandemic immediately since it will take months under the best of circumstances to inoculate tens of millions

Who Gets COVID-19 Vax Next: Model Offers ACIP Several Options

It’s generally agreed that healthcare workers should be first in line for COVID-19 vaccines. Who comes next, however, may depend on whether the goal is to prevent infections or deaths, according to a presentation at the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Friday.

A modeling study found that prioritizing adults ages 65 and older would avert more COVID-19 deaths, but prioritizing adults with high-risk medical conditions and essential workers would avert more COVID-19 infections, said Matthew Biggerstaff, ScD, of the CDC.

“Timing of the campaign is a really important factor in the potential impact of the vaccine,” he said at the ACIP meeting dedicated to COVID-19, describing three scenarios when the vaccine is distributed: before incidence rises, as incidence rises, or as incidence falls.

Not only that, but the type of vaccine plays a role, whether infection-blocking, meaning it will help stop transmission of the virus, or disease-blocking, meaning it will help reduce severity of illness, but have no bearing on whether people get infected.

ACIP will be responsible for ultimately deciding which populations receive the vaccine once the FDA approves a COVID-19 vaccine, likely under emergency use authorization (EUA). Previous proposals stated that healthcare workers would be vaccinated in in phase 1a, while phase 1b would take in essential workers” and adults ages 65 and older and those with high-risk medical conditions such as COPD, heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease.

Biggerstaff explained that his group’s models assumed 180 million initial doses of vaccine would be available, with 20 million of those allocated to healthcare personnel. Each modeling scenario then looked at two-dose vaccine courses allocated exclusively to each one of the phase 1b populations, followed by wider availability to the unvaccinated groups in each scenario.

They assumed a vaccine efficacy of 70%, with the first dose at a quarter of full protection, or 17.5%. Protection was assumed 14 days following vaccination. (Notably, though, the FDA has said it will consider vaccines with efficacy as low as 50%.)

The models assumed 15% of the population was infected 2 months prior to vaccine introduction and examined infections and deaths averted 6 months following vaccine introduction.

In this case, earlier introduction of vaccine was better in all scenarios, with vaccine introduced “before incidence rises” having the greatest impact.

The model with the greatest impact on infection was an infection-blocking vaccine, where vaccinating high-risk adults averted about 5% more cases of infection than vaccinating adults age 65 and older in a scenario before disease incidence rises.

However, an infection-blocking vaccine where older adults were vaccinated first averted about 4% more deaths than vaccinating high-risk adults first. This assumed full protection from the vaccine, there was no difference when the vaccine only provided older adults half protection.

A sensitivity analysis examined a disease-blocking vaccine where older adults were vaccinated first, in a scenario where a vaccine is introduced before incidence rises, would avert 11% more deaths.
