  1. However the medical world has now learned that for most simple infections it is better to take antibiotics only until one feels better. Things change. https://www.statnews.com/2017/02/09/antibiotics-resistance-superbugs/ I do believe you are correct that the vaccine can stop severe illness and death but I have seen no evidence it stops virus mutation and spread. Have you?
  2. I'm looking for input from those with experience porting (permanently retaining - moving) a US cell phone number so calls ring on a Mexican cell phone. Company used - quality, can be used for ID verification, etc. Some companies I've looked at; OpenPhone, CallCentric, (Magic Jack?). Another similar service is Google Voice but apparently one needs to be physically in the US to port the number.
  3. Here is another interesting media article (with excerpts) which raises some questions I have had. As I mentioned earlier, post infection and a single vaccine is the best scenario. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/natural-immunity-isnt-enough-for-a-covid-passport-should-it-be "Still, two recent studies suggest immunity from a previous infection confers longer-lasting and stronger protection against SARS-CoV-2. A large study of tens of thousands of Israelis, a preprint that hasn’t yet been peer reviewed, found that people who never had COVID and received two doses of the Pfizer shots were six to 13 times more likely to contract Delta than those who were previously infected with COVID." "However, in another analysis from the same study, the COVID-recovered who remained unvaccinated were twice as likely to be re-infected as the COVID-recovered who received a single dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. Others have shown that people with a previous SARS-CoV-2 infection “mount unusually potent immune responses to COVID-19 vaccines,” virologist Shane Crotty wrote in Science magazine, which may explain why they are also more likely to experience side effects like fever and fatigue." "A study out of Rockefeller University published in Nature , meanwhile, found that memory B cells that can linger for decades and unleash potent antibodies every time the body is re-exposed to SARS-CoV-2 outperformed memory B cells produced by mRNA vaccines." Unfortunately protocol for covid19 recovered individuals is double mRNA vaccines. The second vaccine has resulted in hospitalization for a number of these individuals. I wish there was data and even acceptance of a single Sinovac vaccine following infection. To me, this seems scientifically practical, as Sinovac is an old school style vaccine, structured on the polio vaccine scaffolding. Sometimes I wonder why this style is prevalent in China and if one believes their data covid19 is for the greater part under control there.
  4. If I did not get the virus early on, I would have been vaccinated.
  5. Here is the information about the exemptions for previously infected Canadians. I posted it earlier in this thread. You need a serum test (titers) as proof. https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/exemptions Exemptions; Already recovered from COVID-19 If you are now symptom-free, you can provide proof of a positive COVID-19 molecular test when crossing the border, instead of a negative one. - After August 9, 2021: The test must have been conducted at least 14 and no more than 180 days before: - the initial scheduled departure time of your aircraft, or - your entry into Canada by marine or by land As far as the vaccine conferring greater immunity, this is an unknown as a secure fact. It is hypothesized that infection and one vaccine may be the best. Who knows for sure. I have read a number of studies indicating that infected individuals see an increase in B cells as time passes. In comparisons to SARS 1, recovered individuals had strong B cell presence 17 years later. I'm not anti-vaccines. I just think post-infected individuals should have a choice. Here is a recent study which is a little complex to read. Although pointing out some superior benefits of the vaccine it points out that immunity from infection increases over time, via B cells. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8369496/ Some other studies/papers discussing the subject. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-020-20247-4 https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03696-9 https://www.nih.gov/news-events/nih-research-matters/lasting-immunity-found-after-recovery-covid-19
  6. "Membership in this group is allowed with **careful vetting**. To apply you MUST have an actual FB profile page, thoroughly read and answer ALL the questions and SUB QUESTIONS to join this group." - Isn't this a little overboard?
  7. Government of Canada to accept additional vaccines for travel Starting November 30, 2021, 03:01 AM EST, three additional COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by the World Health Organization will be accepted for travel to and within Canada. Sinopharm (also referred to as Covilo) Sinovac (also referred to as Coronavac) COVAXIN https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/covid-vaccinated-travellers-entering-canada
  8. Just his house...or at least that's the talk on the streets.
  9. Too cool your confusion Natashia, see my edit. - just a little humor.
  10. 551 104 4888 - can't recall which location Natashia likely more useable.
  11. SMART develops 10-minute test for detection of COVID immunity https://www.eurekalert.org/news-releases/934727 https://www.nature.com/articles/s43856-021-00045-9#ethics
  12. I had antibody - Tcell - Bcell testing by blood draw at Chopo - 1800 pesos but included full panel. Following infection.
  13. Has anyone got experience with Dishnet internet?
  14. Did that with the Hughes system 20 years ago - 1/4 mile run - worked fine.
  15. As I posted earlier, the Canadian Government is recognizing natural immunity as far as entry goes. There are many studies showing natural immunity (recovery from infection) to be at least equal to that conferred by vaccination.
  16. As reported several times on the forum, boric acid works great for controlling ants. They take it home and wipe out the colony. Harmless to pets used appropriately. If a search does not reveal this for you, I'll provide my recipe and method.
  17. Exemptions; Already recovered from COVID-19 If you are now symptom-free, you can provide proof of a positive COVID-19 molecular test when crossing the border, instead of a negative one. - After August 9, 2021: The test must have been conducted at least 14 and no more than 180 days before: - the initial scheduled departure time of your aircraft, or - your entry into Canada by marine or by land
  18. If only they would kick it into the bushes or grass, many birds, bugs n' worms and microbes would devour it pretty fast.
  19. Do you know if Syncler works well with windows 7? (yup; still there)
