Disease detectives with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating a cluster of rare and serious brain abscesses in kids in and around Las Vegas, Nevada, and doctors from other parts of the country say they may be seeing a rise in cases, too.

In 2022, the number of brain abscesses in kids tripled in Nevada, rising from an average of four to five a year to 18.

“In my 20 years’ experience, I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Dr. Taryn Bragg, an associate professor at the University of Utah who treated the cases.

A German-Austrian research team has identified the cause of so-called post-COVID-19 syndrome, also called Long COVID, in comparative studies of affected individuals.
In a study published Monday in the journal Frontiers in Medicine, the scientists found that the body's defense system appears to be out of balance for a longer period of time after a coronavirus infection.

A woman with an untreated infectious case of tuberculosis and a months-old civil warrant out for her arrest continues to evade the sheriff's department in Tacoma, Washington, drawing local frustration.
 
On Friday, the woman failed to show up to yet another court hearing, to which she has been summoned on a roughly monthly basis since January 2022. That's when the county health department began using court orders to try to compel her to get her deadly respiratory infection treated and/or remain in isolation to protect the public until she is no longer infectious.
 
Pierce County Superior Court Judge Philip Sorensen ruled once again Friday that the woman—known only by the initials "V.N." in court documents—was in contempt of those court orders. Sorensen had initially issued a civil arrest warrant on March 2, 2023, ordering her to involuntary detention for testing and treatment. He extended the warrant Friday.

Around 1 in 6 unvaccinated individuals say they are still experiencing health effects of COVID-19 up to two years after infection, finds a study from Switzerland published by The BMJ.
 
The findings show that 17% of participants did not return to normal health and 18% reported COVID-19 related symptoms 24 months after initial infection.
 
Most people who have COVID-19 recover soon after the initial phase of the disease, but others experience persistent health problems (known as long COVID), which can impact quality of life and ability to work.

https://m.youtube.co...eature=youtu.be

 
That's not what the WHO said...
 

CLAIM: The World Health Organization admitted that COVID-19 vaccines can lead to multiple sclerosis.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. A database on the WHO website includes an abstract for a conference presentation about research that examined two recent cases of MS. The research found there might be a potential link to COVID vaccines, but did not definitively conclude the shots triggered the neurological disease, according to the global health agency and multiple sclerosis experts. One of the research authors also stressed COVID infection carries a higher risk of triggering MS than the COVID vaccine.

THE FACTS: Social media users are sharing a post that suggests the WHO has found COVID vaccines can lead to multiple sclerosis.

Many are sharing a screenshot of recent research titled: “Covid-19 vaccination can induce multiple sclerosis via cross-reactive CD4+ T cells recognizing SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and myelin peptides.”


[...]

Julie Fiol, an associate vice president at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, agreed, stressing the research does not prove the coronavirus causes MS, as some claim online.

“To prove cause and effect, a different type of study (experimental) would need to be conducted, with very large numbers of people, from multiple locations,” she wrote in an email. “Cause and effect cannot be determined by an observational study (case report).”

Fiol also noted that the abstract’s introduction makes it clear that other research has found that the type of nervous system damage caused by MS occurs more often after COVID infection than after COVID vaccination.

She also noted that a study published last yearin the Journal of Neuroimmunology similarly looked at a small number of cases of MS that developed following a COVID shot.

A review of more than 245,000 doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines given to young children (most of them age 4 and younger) found no indications of serious side effects. The study, published June 6 in Pediatrics, was led by the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
 
The data came from the Vaccine Safety Datalink, which collects patient medical information from 8 health systems (5 Kaiser Permanente regions along with Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin, HealthPartners in Minneapolis, and Denver Health in Colorado). The researchers examined patient records from June 2022 to March 2023 for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
 
Importantly, there was no indication of the heart inflammation called myocarditis among the young vaccinated children, said lead author Kristin Goddard, MPH, research project manager with the Kaiser Permanente Vaccine Study Center. "We haven't seen any myocarditis or pericarditis in this youngest age group, which is very reassuring," Goddard said.

The Federal Communications Commission issued a $5.1 million fine against pro-Trump robocallers who targeted Black people with calls promoting a conspiracy theory that the government would use mail-in voting records "to track people for mandatory vaccines." The calls also falsely claimed that mail-in voting would be used by police to "track down old warrants" and by credit card companies to collect outstanding debts.
