Same Old, Same Old Democrat Attacks on Jack Ciattarelli

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Jack Ciattarelli3

Joshua Sotomayor-Einstein

The most recent attack by the NJ Democrat Committee on New Jersey’s next Governor, Jack Ciattarelli, reads like the same-old chicken-little sky-is-falling caricature of every GOP opponent they have ever faced.  Jack is anti-science they say because he believes in the philosophical exemption from vaccines that exists in some shape or form in every state (at least until Covid-19). Jack is anti-gay they scream because he is against the out of touch sex “education” Democrats have pushed into every public school which mandates teaching middle school children about anal sex and the controversial notion that they can change their biology.

Newly Discovered “super antibody” Capable of Protecting Against SARS-CoV-2


the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, in a study published July 14 in Nature, researchers describe a newly discovered “super antibody” capable of protecting against SARS-CoV-2 and a group of related coronaviruses, called sarbecoviruses. The antibody, named S2H97, is believed to work by attaching to a section of the ACE2 receptor binding motif on the virus spike protein that is only exposed when a sarbecovirus is attempting to enter a cell. S2H97 was able to prevent the spread of multiple sarbecoviruses between cells in a lab, and the antibody also protected hamsters from infection with SARS-CoV-2 isolated from the initial Wuhan, China, outbreak. Researchers further described the antibody as a pan-sarbecovirus due to its broad efficacy across the sarbecovirus subgenus. The description of a usually hidden antibody binding region in the ACE2 RBM is important because it could be used as a target for future vaccines and therapeutics. Additionally, a pan-sarbecovirus vaccine could be used to prevent outbreaks from as-of-yet-undiscovered members of the Coronaviridae family of viruses.

CDC : Measles could become endemic in the United States again


the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, according to the CDC measles could become endemic (constant presence of a disease in an area) in the United States again, especially if vaccine coverage levels drop. This can happen when people

  • forget to get vaccinated on time,
  • don’t know that they need a vaccine dose (this is most common among adults), or
  • refuse vaccines for religious, philosophical or personal reasons.

Research shows that people who refuse vaccines tend to group together in communities. When measles gets into communities with pockets of unvaccinated people, outbreaks are more likely to occur. These communities make it difficult to control the spread of the disease. And these communities make us vulnerable to having the virus re-establish itself in our country.

High sustained measles vaccine coverage and rapid public health response are critical for preventing and controlling measles cases and outbreaks.
