(Video) Beware of These! Early Symptoms of Kidneys Failure

Published

on

In the human body, the kidneys are actually located high in the abdominal cavity, one on each side of the spine, and lie in a retroperitoneal position at a slightly oblique angle. The asymmetry within the abdominal cavity, caused by the position of the liver, typically results in the right kidney being slightly lower and smaller than the left and being placed slightly more to the middle. Kidney got described as a bean-shaped structure with a convex and concave border.

We have to really take care of our kidneys so that they could function perfectly for the rest of our lives. For some people, their kidneys might have not been functional and they have to find other alternatives so that the body could still carry out the functions of the kidneys. Before anything goes bad, everyone in this whole wide world should know of these early symptoms that show kidneys are not working properly in the body so they could take early precaution steps.

LABUAN, Oct 18 — Labuan has begun administering COVID-19 vaccine booster shots under a three-phase exercise which will see almost 20,000 people getting their third jab.

Labuan Health director Dr Ismuni Bohari said the first phase would involve 1,290 healthcare personnel, the second phase, 2,500 non-healthcare frontliners including the media fraternity; and the third phase, some 16,000 individuals in high-risk groups.

“We have received the green light from the Ministry of Health (MoH) to administer the booster shots, with our healthcare frontliners to be vaccinated starting today until the end of the week,” he said before the launch of the booster shots at the Membedai Health Clinic today.

He said all the three phases are expected to be completed by the end of the year or early next year.

“Only individuals who have completed the recommended six-month interval after the second dose are eligible for the booster shots,” he said.

“We have set up vaccination centres at Labuan Hospital, Labuan air force base camp and the Membedai Health Clinic,” he said.

Dr Ismuni said the booster shots would also be made available at all private clinics via appointments.

“Those eligible can contact the clinics to set their appointments,” he said.

Statement On Anti-vaxxers: Govt Has Explained Enough On Benefits of COVID-19 Vaccines – Khairy

Published

on

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 18  — Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the government had made enough effort to explain the goodness and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines to the public.

He said his ministry had in fact provided all the scientific evidence on the effectiveness of the vaccines on people.

“And we continue to provide the explanation. I’m sorry I have to be firm on this issue. Call me dajjal (evil) or whatever,” he tweeted on his Twitter account today.

Khairy had previously said that the government would be taking a firm approach against those who refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by imposing difficulties upon them.

Yesterday, Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim described Khairy’s statement that the government would continue making the daily life difficult for those who rejected the vaccines as arrogant.

Anwar, who is also PKR president, said it was the government’s role to continue appealing to and educating the public on the advantages of taking the vaccines to fight COVID-19.

MOH Plans To Meet With Anti-Vaccine Groups

Published

on

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 18 — The Ministry of Health (MOH) plans to meet with anti-vaccine groups to provide them with facts and information on the COVID-19 vaccine, based on authentic clinical studies, the Dewan Negara was told today.

Its Deputy Minister Datuk Dr Noor Azmi Ghazali said he could help arrange the meeting which would also involve Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.

“I would like to suggest that these groups meet us. We can have a talk about it (vaccination).

“Do not spread fake news (about the COVID-19 vaccine) as they (those who spread fake news) may end up facing action from KKMM (the Communications and Multimedia Ministry),” he said during the during a question and answer session at the Dewan Negara today.

He was replying to a question from Senator Dr Wan Martina Wan Yusoff on the government’s action against anti-vaxxers who had among others exploited data on the COVIDNOW portal to influence others against taking the vaccine.

Dr Noor Azmi was of the view that the groups had not been given a clear explanation on the COVID-19 vaccine, adding that the decision to carry out the vaccination programme was made aftar taking into account the results of studies that were conducted either locally or abroad.

He said the MOH had previously stated that vaccination was not a cure against COVID-19 but it could help boost the immune system to fight the virus.

On the inoculation of COVID-19 booster shots, he said there were studies that showed immunity against the virus might wane six months after receiving the vaccine.
