“MySejahtera App Has Been Doing A UI Update…” – Khairy Jamaluddin

Published

Recently, the MySejahtera App has been doing a UI update for the vaccination of the COVID-19 program. The display for the vaccination is different now to show the simpler flow of the process for everyone that has successfully registered for the vaccine through the MySejahtera App.

According to Khairy Jamaluddin, “This UI update is to push the new display to everyone that has registered”.

For some people, this new display does not show up even though they have registered before. For that problem, Khairy Jamaluddin explained, “Wait for the push. Don’t register again”. But do not be worried if you have to register again because the first registration has been recorded.

He stated in the tweet, “For those that did and see later date of registration, rests assured we have a record of your first try. Appointments are given based on the first time you registered”. The appointment order would not be disturbed as it is given according to the registration done the first time.

Sweden Confirms First Case of Baby Infected With COVID-19 In Womb

Published

on

STOCKHOLM, March 4  — A baby, who tested positive for COVID-19 two days after birth, was confirmed infected in the womb, reports Xinhua news agency quoted the Swedish doctors on Wednesday.

This is the first case in Sweden that a baby got infected with COVID-19 during the mother’s pregnancy, and subsequent tests showed that the baby surprisingly had developed its own antibodies.

As there are very few cases where babies have been confirmed infected in the womb, the findings have now been published in the scientific journal British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

The 27-year-old mother was admitted to the university hospital in Malmo last year after displaying COVID-19 symptoms. She also had abdominal pain and the fetal movements were reduced. The baby showed signs of lack of oxygen and declining heart sound and it was decided to perform an emergency cesarean section.

“We had no reason to believe that the child was infected, but it is routine to test after two days if mother has COVID-19. We were surprised when we got the test result, as the child was otherwise fine,” Philip Tannenberg, a doctor in paediatrics, said in a press release.

Subsequent tests proved the baby was infected in the womb, said another doctor at the hospital, Mehreen Zaigham.

“We studied the placenta under a microscope and could observe viral protein in all the areas of the placenta that were most affected. We also noticed that the placenta was infected on both the baby’s and the mother’s side,” Zaigham said.

“Until two weeks before the mother fell ill, the fetus’ growth was normal and routine check-ups did not show any infection. Therefore, we see a clear connection between the infection and the effect on the placenta.”

Zaigham said the case proved that the placenta can be affected even if the mother has only a mild infection. “It may be that we need to rethink the monitoring of pregnant women who have COVID-19 and consider them a clearer risk group than we do today.”

This echoes a recommendation that the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare issued last week: Pregnant women who are infected in week 22 or later should be considered as belonging to a risk group, as they risk giving birth prematurely.

The case also revealed other valuable information, as other tests showed the baby had developed its own antibodies, Tannenberg said.

“During the first year, children are usually dependent on antibodies from the mother, but here we were able to show that the child formed its own antibodies against the virus.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott Ends Mask Mandate

Published

on

The largest state in the USA is to end its mask mandate, effective on March 10. “It is now time to open Texas 100%,” the Republican said on Tuesday.

President Joe Biden has made it clear coronavirus restrictions are still necessary.

Similar rules were lifted in other states, including Michigan, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The undergoing vaccination program has boosted confidence for pre-pandemic lives in those states.

Yet the decisions put the main administration and senior health officials at odds with the Lone Star state and its companions who have reacted with dismay over the decision.

The director of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned of a “potential fourth surge of cases” if the country lapsed into complacency. Covid-19 data shows that, while infections and deaths have declined, they are still at high levels relative to other countries.

The new executive order lifts all mask requirements and forbids local authorities from penalizing residents who do not wear a face covering.

“Too many Texans have been side-lined from employment opportunities,” Mr. Abbott said in a speech at the Chamber of Commerce in the city of Lubbock. “Too many small business owners have struggled to pay their bills. This must end.”

He is confident with the improved treatment and vaccinations, it is now in a “far better position”.

He said that with increased vaccinations and improved treatment for Covid-19, the state was “in a far better position now”. Texas has recorded more than 43,000 Covid-19 deaths making it the third-highest state toll in the country.

Political

The Republican leadership favored former President Donald Trump’s relatively relaxed approach to imposing restrictions. But the approach created tension with other cities leaning toward Democrats.

To the states, it was more political. It was the choice between disease control and the economy, mask requirements and personal liberties. And from the outsiders’ perspective, many parties are taking advantage of this situation through the clash of ideologies.

With a year of quarantine did not bring much change, Governor Abbott decides not to follow the science. Despite warnings from health experts, the governor switches his focus to reviving the economic state.

President Biden – in contrast with his predecessor Mr. Trump – has made fighting the virus a priority for his administration.

On Tuesday, Mr. Biden said he was upbeat about the vaccination program. However, he urged Americans to remain vigilant in wearing masks and observing social distancing.
