FDA wants a Covid-19 vaccine that’s 50 percent effective. What does that mean?

Over the summer, the Food and Drug Administration announced that in order for an experimental Covid-19 vaccine to get the green light, it would need to be safe and “prevent disease or decrease its severity in at least 50 percent of people who are vaccinated.”

In fact, no vaccine is 100 percent effective, but some work better than others. One of the most successful is the measles vaccine — two doses are 97 percent effective in preventing the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Full coverage of the coronavirus outbreak

Still, 50 percent sounds like a far cry from 97 percent.

“I know that 50 percent does sound low but that is still some protection, and some protection is better than no protection,” said Dr. Jeff Kwong, professor of public health and family medicine and interim director of the Centre for Vaccine Preventable Diseases at the University of Toronto.

Based on the effectiveness threshold the FDA has set for a Covid-19 vaccine to be approved or granted emergency use authorization, it’s possible a vaccine becomes available that helps only half of people receiving it, while offering no benefit to the other half. It’s also possible that a vaccine could have different effects in different people – helping to prevent disease in some people while reducing the severity of Covid-19 in others.

But even if a Covid-19 vaccine is only 50 percent effective, it could make a difference, experts say, pointing out that the flu vaccine effectiveness can vary widely from year to year, anywhere from 20 percent to 60 percent over the last decade, and the shots still offer benefits. When the flu vaccine matches up well with the influenza viruses that are circulating, the shots can reduce illness, hospitalizations and deaths, the CDC says.

And if enough people were immunized, a Covid-19 vaccine wouldn’t need to be near-perfect to have a substantial impact in the community, said Dr. Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group and editor-in-chief of the journal Vaccine.

“If you had a 60 or 70 percent effective vaccine and everybody took it, you might actually be reaching toward herd immunity and potentially then dampen down this pandemic,” Poland said.

But researchers won’t know how effective the experimental vaccines are — if they are effective at all — until studies are completed.

Related: “I think that it could really benefit the world, and I think it could also help scientists know more about the coronavirus,” said a 12-year-old who recently received his first injection.

“Right now, we have no idea if any of these vaccines work,” said vaccine researcher Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Most clinical trials underway now primarily are assessing whether Covid-19 vaccines prevent disease, Poland explained. Study results also may include additional information, such as whether vaccinated people who still contracted the virus became less sick than unvaccinated people who contracted

Will-Kankakee Coronavirus Positivity Rate Reaches 10.5 Percent

JOLIET, IL — Coronavirus positivity rates and the number of new hospitalizations of people with symptoms of COVID-19 rose sharply across nearly every region of Illinois during the final week in October. All but one of the state’s 11 mitigation regions now have restrictions on indoor service at bars and restaurants and gatherings of more than 25 people.

In Region 7 — Will and Kankakee counties — indoor dining was again halted after the region’s seven-day rolling average positivity rate remained above 8 percent for three days last week.

For the week ending Tuesday, the percentage of specimens tested that came back positive for the virus rose by 1.3 percentage points to 10.5 percent in the two-county region — a new record for the region since state public health officials began reporting the data in June. The next day, the seven-day rolling average rose again to 10.8 percent, setting another record.

New hospitalizations in the south suburban region also rose during the week, according to the rounded seven-day rolling average of daily hospital admissions of patients with what state public health officials classify as “COVID-like illnesses,” or CLI.

The rate has more than tripled since the start of October. As of Tuesday, an average of 21 people were newly hospitalized with symptoms of the virus every day, up from 16 a week earlier.

Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, said the state needs everyone to do their part to change the trend.

“We are on the precipice of the entire state entering into mitigation,” Ezike said Friday, announcing the new mitigation measures for Region 6 in East Central Illinois.

“These last few regions have seen rapid increases in test positivity, one right after another, because of increasing disease spread throughout our communities,” Ezike said. “We need all people to adhere to both the community mitigation measures and well as personal and family measures so we can swiftly turn our entire state around.”

As of Friday, there were 49 counties across the state, including several in the Chicago area, that are considered to be at the “orange” warning level, which means two or more countywide risk indicators suggest a heightened risk of the virus.

They include: Adams, Alexander, Bond, Boone, Clark, Clay, Clinton, Coles, Crawford, Cumberland, DeKalb, Douglas, DuPage, Effingham, Ford, Franklin, Greene, Grundy, Hamilton, Henderson, Jackson, Jo Daviess, Johnson, Kane, Kendall, Knox, Lee, Macon, Marion, McHenry, Mercer, Morgan, Ogle, Perry, Pike, Randolph, Rock Island, Saline, Sangamon, Shelby, Stephenson, Wabash, Warren, Washington, Wayne, Whiteside, Will, Williamson and Winnebago counties.

Coronavirus Positivity Rises To 9.4 Percent In Region 8

WHEATON, IL — The coronavirus positivity rate in Region 8, made up of Kane and DuPage counties, this week reached its highest level since state public health officials began publishing the data.

In the third week of October, positivity rates continued rising across all but one of the state’s 11 COVID-19 resurgence mitigation regions. As of Friday, four of the regions are subject to state-ordered mitigation measures restricting indoor dining and other activities, including DuPage, Kane, Kankakee and Will counties.

In Region 8 of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s mitigation plan, the positivity rate reached 9.4 percent Tuesday, the most recent day where the seven-day rolling average is available from the Illinois Department of Public Health. The two-county region had seen nine days of increases in the previous 10.

The average number of new daily hospitalizations in the region also continued to rise. The rounded, rolling seven-day average of admissions to hospitals with “COVID-like illnesses,” or CLI, rose to 23 people a day Tuesday, up from 18 a week earlier — and twice the region’s hospitalization rate from a month earlier.

Meanwhile, the number of counties considered to be at a warning level for COVID-19, meaning two or more county-level risk indicators show an increasing risk of the virus’ spread.

Half Illinois counties are now at the “orange” warning level: Adams, Bond, Boone, Carroll, Cass, Christian, Clay, Clinton, Crawford, DeKalb, Douglas, Edwards, Fayette, Ford, Franklin, Gallatin, Greene, Hamilton, Henderson, Jersey, Jo Daviess, Johnson, Kane, Kendall, Knox, LaSalle, Lee, Macon, Macoupin, McDonough, McHenry, Mercer, Morgan, Moultrie, Ogle, Perry, Pike, Pulaski, Rock Island, Saline, Shelby, Stephenson, Union, Vermilion, Wabash, Warren, Wayne, Whiteside, Will, Williamson and Winnebago.

Coronavirus Positivity Hits 7.8 Percent In Suburban Cook County

COOK COUNTY, IL — Suburban Cook County’s coronavirus positivity rate reached its highest level since June, with its average number of new daily hospitalizations with coronavirus symptoms at the highest point since public health officials began publishing data earlier this year.

In the third week of October, positivity rates continued rising across all but one of the state’s 11 COVID-19 resurgence mitigation regions. As of Friday, four of the regions are subject to state-ordered mitigation measures restricting indoor dining and other activities, including DuPage, Kane, Kankakee and Will counties.

In the Cook County suburbs, Region 10, the positivity rate reached 7.3 percent Tuesday, the most recent day where the seven-day rolling average is available from the Illinois Department of Public Health. The region had seen eight days of increases in the previous 10.

If a region’s positivity rate reaches a threshold of 8 percent and remains there for three days, state public health officials order the imposition of additional mitigation measures.

The average number of new daily hospitalizations suburban Cook County continued to rise. The rounded, rolling seven-day average of admissions to hospitals with “COVID-like illnesses,” or CLI, rose to 42 people a day compared to 23 a month earlier and up by 35 percent in the past week.

Meanwhile, the number of counties considered to be at a warning level for COVID-19, meaning two or more county-level risk indicators show an increasing risk of the virus’ spread, has also set a new record.

Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine trial is fully enrolled, 37 percent of participants are minorities

“I think that we have done quite well — I think the demographics of the Moderna trial have markedly changed,” Larry Corey, a virologist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center said in an interview last week. Corey is heading up the clinical trials under Operation Warp Speed, the federal effort to speed vaccine development.

“We hope that we continue to improve upon that, this is the first trial,” Corey said. ‘There are two others in the field, and two more scheduled to go — so our journey in covid-19 vaccines is just starting.”

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine trial is also nearing completion. Pfizer’s trial, which is not part of Operation Warp Speed, has enrolled 39,862 of its planned 44,000 participants. Of those, 34,601 have received their second, booster dose.

Half the participants in both trials receive the study vaccine and half receive a placebo, and more than 25,000 of Moderna’s participants have already received their second dose.

More than half of the volunteers in Moderna’s trial are healthy and not at high risk of severe covid-19, the disease caused by coronavirus. But 25 percent are at elevated risk due to age and 17 percent are younger, but have conditions such as diabetes or obesity that put them in a high risk group.

Moderna has projected having early data in the next month that may show whether its vaccine is effective. The company will determine whether that data is sufficient to apply for regulatory authorization once it has accumulated two months of safety follow-up on half the study participants, a milestone anticipated slightly before Thanksgiving.

Parents of Boy with Brain Disorder That’s ‘100 Percent Fatal’ Raise Money for Gene Therapy Clinical Trial

gofundme Connor

The parents of a boy with a rare, fatal brain disorder are raising money so he can participate in a gene therapy trial that has potential to stop the disease.

Marisa DiChiacchio and Mike Dobbyn’s 12-year-old son Connor has Sanfilippo Syndrome Type C, which is a rare degenerative brain disorder that is “like Alzheimer’s, but in children,” according to a GoFundMe campaign created earlier this month.

According to the campaign, the syndrome is “100 percent fatal” and has no cure.

“As the degeneration rapidly progresses, Connor will stop walking, stop talking, stop being able to feed himself,” the GoFundMe campaign says. “He’ll develop movement disorders and seizures, suffer severe dementia, endure a lot of pain and suffering, and then he’ll die.”

But Connor’s family is raising money for the Cure Sanfilippo Foundation and a gene therapy clinical trial that needs funding at UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas.

“Research for this gene therapy has shown in pre-clinical models that it can stop the disease,” the campaign says. “This clinical trial is the crucial step of determining whether earlier research is able to show the same therapeutic benefits in children.”

“It was like a bomb was dropped on us in the geneticist office,” Connor’s dad told CBS Philadelphia of the moment they learned of his diagnosis. “I just remember it was a life-shortening condition, the geneticist actually told us at the time, ‘Don’t Google this yet because we don’t have a 100 percent conviction on this diagnosis yet.’ “

So he’s like our local community rock star.”

On Sunday, 900 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, bringing the cumulative total to 166,138 cases. According to the Virginia Department of Health, there have been 11,861 hospitalizations and 3,433 deaths to date.

The seven-day positive average of PCR tests is tracked both at a statewide and regional level. The southwest region has a 7.2 percent average, making it the only region with an average above 5 percent. Other averages are 4.1 percent in the northern region, 4.5 percent in the northwest region, 4.7 percent in the eastern region and 4.8 percent in the central region. Statewide, 2,386,778 PCR tests have been completed to date, an increase of 20,398 from Saturday.

Like the previous day, the southwest region led the state in new cases. The breakdown is 270 in the southwest region, 250 in the northern region, 160 in the central region, 126 in the eastern region and 94 in the northwest region.

The VDH Pandemic Metrics Dashboard shows the northern region continues to have a low transmission extent with a fluctuating trend. The northwest, eastern, near southwest and far southwest regions are considered to have moderate transmission extent. That trend is fluctuating for all but the far southwest, which has an increasing trend. The central region is identified as having a high transmission extent with a fluctuating trend. VDH also provides daily region metrics and CDC school metrics on the dashboard.

The central region leads Virginia in current COVID-19 hospitalizations. Statewide, there are 972 current patients, including 95 on ventilators and 202 in the intensive care units.

My dentist recommended this top-rated Waterpik flosser that’s 43 percent off

Our team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission. Pricing and availability are subject to change. 

If you’re extra careful when it comes to your dental hygiene, you likely already have an electric toothbrush, whitening toothpaste and maybe even coconut floss in your teeth-brushing arsenal. But you just might be missing out on one small-but-mighty tool.

While I floss on a daily basis, I have a permanent retailer on my bottom teeth to preserve the position of my pearly whites from my braces days. But this makes flossing extra tricky.

At my most recent teeth cleaning, my dentist recommended I invest in a Waterpik electric water flosser to ensure I’m always cleaning those hard-to-reach areas of my mouth — and behind my retainer.

It’s not every day your dentist pulls up the Amazon app and shows you exactly which product to buy. But mine dentist did that day, and now I’m forever grateful.

But not only my dentist recommends this dental device. The Waterpik flosser has a big fan base, with 35,000 five-star reviews. And right now during Prime Day, you can buy it for a whopping 40 percent off!

Shop: Waterpik Electric Countertop Water Flosser, $39.93 (Orig. $69.99)

Amazon
Amazon

If you have enough space on your bathroom counter, you can leave the Waterpik plugged in, making it ready for daily use. And if you have a permanent retainer, braces, implants or other dental work, the Waterpik is 99.9 percent effective at removing plaque on hard-to-reach spots. Plus, as the product description states, it’s 50 percent more effective than actual floss for improving gum health.

With its range of settings and 1,400 water pulses per minute, you can use the Waterpik in two different modes, including a massage mode to stimulate your gums. Not only that, but you can use the 10 pressure settings to get a range of gentle to firm cleanings. Plus, with the built-in timer, you don’t need to guess about cleaning time. You only have to use it one minute per day!

You receive seven different tip types with the Waterpik, designed for braces, crowns, implants, treating periodontal pockets and more, if you have any of those extra dental needs.

While I use the Waterpik daily in place of floss, it admittedly does have a learning curve. Your gums might be a little sensitive afterward, and you’ll definitely have water spraying around at first. Just be sure to use it over the sink.

After a few months of use, I’m a Waterpik fan and have said goodbye to traditional flossing. While Waterpik offers a cordless version, the company’s countertop electric flosser is discounted until Prime Day deals end Oct. 14 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Key coronavirus model predicts nearly 80 percent rise in deaths by February

A key model foresees approximately 171,000 more coronavirus related deaths by February 2021, a number that would represent a spike of 78 percent.

The model from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington School of Medicine suggests there will be roughly 389,087 deaths by Feb. 1.

If all Americans use face masks, the model’s best-case scenario projects 314,000 deaths by that date. The model, however, foresees more than 477,000 deaths if mask mandates are eased.

“We expect deaths to stop declining and begin increasing in the next one to two weeks,” researchers said, according to CNN. “The winter surge appears to have begun somewhat later than the surge in Europe. Daily deaths will reach over 2,000 a day in January even with many states reimposing mandates before the end of the year.”

As of Thursday morning, the United States is now averaging approximately 52,345 new daily cases, an increase of 16 percent from the previous week. 

An analysis of COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University reveals that 21 states are recording a peak of weekly averages of new cases since the onset of the pandemic, CNN reported

The states seeing record increases in new cases include Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Public health experts are warning that rising cases will continue to spike as the weather cools and people move indoors. 

Anthony FauciAnthony FauciTrump fields questions on coronavirus, conspiracy theories in combative town hall Chris Christie says he ‘was wrong’ not to wear face mask at White House Overnight Health Care: Georgia gets Trump approval for Medicaid work requirements, partial expansion | McConnell shoots down .8 trillion coronavirus deal MORE, the government’s top infectious disease expert, on Thursday warned that American families should “evaluate the risk-benefit” of having a Thanksgiving gathering with regard to spreading coronavirus. 

“We really have to be careful this time, and each individual family evaluate the risk-benefit of doing that, particularly when you have people coming in from out of town who may have been on airplanes, in airports,” Fauci said.

He called the current situation in the U.S. “quite concerning [and] we’ve really got to double down on the fundamental public health measures that we talk about every single day because they can make a difference.”
