Vaccines lower risk of long COVID: Study
Quick Glance: Vaccines Reduce Risk of Long COVID: Study
  • Recent research revealed that vaccinated patients were less likely to experience symptoms of post-COVID condition or long COVID.

  • Scientists examined the relationship between vaccinations and long-term COVID symptoms by studying individuals in eight major healthcare systems in the United States.

  • The study, released in Nature Communications on Wednesday, analyzed positive COVID tests from March 2021 to February 2022 in 161,531 vaccinated and 161,531 unvaccinated individuals.

  • In conclusion, the study indicated that individuals who received the vaccine before infection had a lower risk of long-term COVID outcomes and consequences, despite a slightly higher risk of mental health issues among vaccinated individuals during the study period.

Quick Glance: FLiRT: New COVID Subvariants in Australia
  • A new family of COVID-causing subvariants named FLiRT, consisting of subvariants KP.1 and KP.2, has arrived in Australia.

  • FLiRT originates from the JN.1 variant, which is more transmissible than previous iterations of the coronavirus but usually causes less severe illness.

  • In the United States, FLiRT has quickly overtaken JN.1 as the dominant strain, a scenario likely to play out in Australia too with rising cases.

  • FLiRT is better at evading antibodies, leading to increased illness, and the symptoms are similar to those of previous versions.

Quick Glance: Trump Booed at Libertarian Convention
  • Trump was loudly and consistently booed during his speech at the Libertarian Party's national convention on Saturday, especially when he asked attendees to 'nominate me or at least vote for me.' Heckling began as soon as the former president took the stage, with some supporters trying to drown out the boos with chants of 'We want Trump.' Trump left the stage after 34 minutes, marking one of his shortest campaign speeches.

  • The Libertarian Party is set to choose its presidential nominee on Sunday. Trump's appearance at the Libertarian convention was unconventional for a presumptive Republican nominee but reflects his campaign's growing concern over third-party candidates. Before the speech, Secret Service agents confiscated rubber chickens distributed by a super PAC aligned with Kennedy's campaign. The scene was at times chaotic, with clashes between Trump supporters and Libertarians.

  • Trump received applause when he promised to commute the sentence of Ross Ulbricht, the creator of Silk Road. Some Libertarian delegates viewed Trump's invitation positively but expressed skepticism about his ability to sway them to vote for him. One delegate mentioned that Trump's pledge to commute Ulbricht's sentence wouldn't change his vote in November.

  • While some Libertarians saw inviting Trump to the convention as beneficial, they remained doubtful about supporting him. A delegate mentioned that Trump's commitment to commuting Ulbricht's sentence wouldn't impact his vote. Despite the mixed reactions, Trump's appearance at the convention sparked both applause and dissent among attendees.
