  1. The US has pre-ordered 10 million treatments and the uk 250,000.
  2. I thought Leo said that he had spoken to Jackson who had referred him to Pharmac which presumably won't have much to say as they can't be asked to purchase or order an as yet unapproved med. It seems odd that Pfizer would be applying to Medsafe for approval if they did not have some indication from NZ that we were interested in purchasing Paxlovid.
  3. Do we know they haven't? Pfizer says "Rolling submissions have commenced in several countries including in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, with planned submissions to other regulatory agencies around the world to follow." That would seem to mean we are forward in the queue?
  4. They can't order it until it is approved by Medsafe can they? Medsafe can't approve it until Pfizer make application and submit the necessary efficacy and safety data. As far as I am aware it hasn't been approved anywhere in the world yet. I think it is still in the Phase 2/3 clinical trial stage?

  8. If that's the case Tauhei, then I think you have gone one better. I'm curious though exactly what you find so objectionable about my post?
  9. No. Not anywhere as far as I know. I think P4P has shares in Pfizer. Also sounds like he has a premature innoculation problem.
  10. I agree with what you say with respect to immunity against infection (particularly symptomatic infection) and severe symptoms. That's not what we were discussing though I don't think. We were discussing the reduction in transmission from vaccination. The Oxford studies suggest this effect occurs modestly immediately following vaccination but is non-existent after 12 weeks. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.09.28.21264260v1 I note this is an un-peer-reviewed pre-print.
  11. Not quite right. Significantly effective (not very effective) and less so for delta than alpha. And it's for only 12 weeks from the second jab after which those studies conclude there is no difference.
  12. Independent director positions were advertised closing June. I haven't seen anything with respect to those appointments. https://www.iod.org.nz/assets/Vacancies/2021/Racing-New-Zealand-Board-Appointments-Position-Description.pdf
  13. That is Racing New Zealand established by the Racing Industry Act 2020 primarily to provide a consultative forum for the codes.
  14. I've never heard of him backing a winner OR backing a $14 shot though they should be easier to stop.
  15. They should have plenty in the kitty by then. Maybe they'll be able to match the 50k R65 stakes available at Hastings tomorrow.
  16. You might have to put that into English for me to understand what you are asking or saying. But who is travelling between alert levels? I didn't think so.
  17. Looked like run down bandages to me? Protective, not an indication of any soreness.
  18. I think the humbling is what he did to his opposition?
  19. So, do you believe that you are more likely to be infected with Delta by an unvaccinated person than a vaccinated one? That's not really known yet is it? Medsafe says in their FAQ: Does the vaccine prevent or reduce transmission of COVID-19? At this stage, we do not know if vaccination prevents or reduces transmission of COVID-19. The best study I've seen suggests that may be true if the vaccinated person was fully vaccinated within the last 4 months but after that it makes no difference. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.09.28.21264260v1 There is possibly a grea
  20. No exotics involved. They all lost. Thunderstruck won paying 2.90 for a return of 725 for the 250 bet. Less the total bet by NP of 350 = 375 profit which makes total bank now 1375. Leo lost 500 of his bank so now has a remaining bank of 500.
  21. It's bizarre what they are doing. Doesn't make scientific sense. If they want it to work as they hope, a 12 week interval looks a lot better option. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/coronavirus/300348177/3-weeks-or-3-months-the-vaccine-dose-gap-matters
  22. Funny how they are saying that now when less than 2 months ago the MoH said: Media release 12 August 2021 The time between doses of the COVID-19 vaccine is being increased, Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield says. ‘From today, the standard time will become six weeks between the first and second doses of the vaccine,’ he says. ‘Moving to a longer gap allows us to give a first dose to a larger number of people faster, which means providing more people with partial protection sooner. This is an im
  23. Bigger question. Does the race's group status really matter?
  24. I didn't know a female's symphysis was a public matter. Maybe the females you hang out with?
