A new oral Covid-19 treatment, manufactured by Pfizer, will become available at Australian community pharmacies this weekend.
The tablets, called PAXLOVID, will be added to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme this on Sunday,
But it is only available for high-risk patients within the first five days of experiencing mild to moderate symptoms.
The revolutionary drug was approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration in January but will now be available to high-risk cases with a prescription at their local community pharmacy.
It is the first oral treatment of its kind to treat the symptoms of Covid-19 and works by slowing or stopping the virus from replicating.
The drug aims to reduce the risk of serious illness which is seen more commonly in high-risk communities such as the elderly and immunocompromised.
Pfizer Australia and New Zealand’s Medical Director Dr Krishan Thiru said that high-risk people testing positive for COVID-19 should seek medical advice quickly to find out what treatment is appropriate for them.
The tablet needs to be taken twice a day for five days and as soon as possible after a Covid-19 diagnosis.
To be eligible for the PBS subsidised treatment you must be over 65 years old (over 50 years old for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander’s), or immunocompromised.
The Federal Ministry of the Interior published the police crime statistics for 2021. Federal Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser explained that the crime statistics show a positive development in most areas and the clear-up rate has risen again. “We are a very safe country and a strong constitutional state,” assured the SPD minister.

The first principle in battling against the Alinsky crew is to not to accept their terminology. Controlling language is a specific tactic of the professional political left. We used to call it labeling, but modern leftists moved beyond labels into the creation of new definitions. Modern leftists now use two different strategies depending on their target: (1) create new words, the traditional labeling; and (2) redefine existing words.
In this interview Naomi Wolf is one of the few people I have seen who correctly starts her discussion by dispatching the linguistics and framing her own baseline argument. All politicians and candidates for office should watch how Wolf responds to the first question from Tucker Carlson, and then makes the better argument.
Wolf doesn’t waste time debating “misinformation”, “disinformation”, or “malinformation”, instead she accurately just says those things do not exist. Information stands undefined. From that position there are truth and lies. Her approach is exactly correct. Do not accept the insanity of the Alinsky language effort. A refreshing and really good interview, WATCH:
On January 13, 2022, the fraudulent and managed autocrat, the installed occupant of the White House, gave instructions to his fellow travelers in Big Tech, and I quote:
“I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets: Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows. It has to stop.” ~ Joe Biden
Geoff Morrell, the chief corporate affairs officer for Disney, who helped crafted the embattled company’s response to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, has resigned to “pursue other opportunities” after just three months.
The company initially tried to keep its activism to stop the law in the background but because it did not lead a loud public outcry over the bill, Disney came under pressure from internal and external activists. Eventually Disney CEO Bob Chapek apologized for not attacking the law before it was enacted or while it was being debated in the state legislature.
Morrell helped Disney CEO Bob Chapek craft a response to the Florida, CNBC reports.
Sweden was invaded by unassimilable, hostile savages who never had any intentions to integrate. They came to conquer, not to become Swedes. This nonsense about Sweden “having failed” is preposterous. It adds insult to injury. The Swedes have give everything they could possibly give, but the soldiers of allah never had any intentions to adapt to Swedish society. Sweden has been failed by their blue eyed, naive social engineers and their misguided experiments. They alone bear the blame for the disaster that is Sweden today.
Sweden failed to integrate immigrants – prime minister
Where tyranny intersects with narcissism, there you find the Democrat Party.
It is bad enough to see constitution rights trampled on and the country you love methodically replaced by a dysfunctional authoritarian hellhole. Watching it done by self-adoring speds adds insult to injury.
Russians got Felix Dzerzhinsky. Germans got Heinrich Himmler. Cubans got Che Guevara. None of them was remotely appealing, but at least you could take them seriously (except maybe Guevara). We get MSNBC regular Nina Jankowicz, who opposes the First Amendment on the grounds that it is harmful to “marginalized communities,” and who barks condescendingly that “‘free speech vs censorship’ framing is a false dichotomy.”
At least she really is an expert on disinformation. She has peddled lies regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop and the Trump dossier.
Want more from the musical Minister of Truth? Here’s some anyway. This will set the dogs to howling:
The cult of global warming may be the first explicitly antihuman ideology ever to take root among a ruling class. In the name of the climate, its adherents want us shivering in the dark — without food:
Northern Ireland will need to lose more than 1 million sheep and cattle to meet its new legally binding climate emissions targets, according to an industry-commissioned analysis seen by the Guardian.
The large-scale reduction in farm animals comes after the passing of the jurisdiction’s first ever climate act, requiring the farming sector to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and reduce methane emissions by almost 50% over the same period.
The Experts intone that burping cows make it be too warm outside for the comfort of the planet. Chickens do too:
Separate analysis by the UK government’s climate advisers suggests chicken numbers would also need to be cut by 5 million by 2035.
Poultry processor Moy Park is the largest company in Northern Ireland.
Crippling Northern Ireland’s meat industry will have no measurable impact on supposedly problematic global temperatures. But like the Biden Regime’s suppression of energy production in the name of the same ideology, it will have a noticeable effect on prices, employment, and the overall standard of living.
Bloomberg’s incomplete story discusses an allegedly offensive tweet by Gerry Wilders about Islam, without any mention of the content of the tweet. Once upon a time not long ago, there was a sense of responsibility in journalism, and the 5 w’s (who, what, when, where, why, and sometimes the additional how) were a minimal requirement. Now anything goes as long as the story fits within the framework of the publication’s activism goals. The duty not to offend Islam tops all other media priorities these days. This holds true in politics, too, in most cases.
Euro News, however, revealed the contents of the tweet that caused the dhimmi arbiters at Twitter to act:
…..the Freedom Party (PVV) chairman had published a tweet addressed to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, denouncing the “violence of the intolerant ideology called Islam”. Wilders had also claimed that the Pakistani citizens who have sent him death threats are “inspired by the fake prophet Mohammad”.
The whole world must comply with Sharia blasphemy laws and never offend Islam. Twitter is compliant.
Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal is clearly in the Islamic camp. He is also has it in for white people. Inferior complexes come with the mental baggage:
"If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists."
A traffic ticket in a migrant-dense neighborhood ends in hundreds of Moroccans attacking Police and setting fires.
The migrant-dense neighborhood of Rocafonda de Mataró in Maresme, Spain, is again the focus of violence. On Tuesday, April 26, hundreds of people, primarily Moroccan migrants, attacked police officers trying to ticket a vehicle parked illegally. The mob shouted and threw objects, even from balconies, at authorities. The owner of the car, who “has numerous records,” ended up arrested for disobedience, resistance, and attacks on officers.
The Spanish police had to arrest them because in the West, the punishment of people who criticize Islam is not the job of jihadis. It is left to the media and the Leftist propaganda apparatus, to smear the offenders as “Islamophobes” and “bigots” and make them pariahs.
“The National Police arrests in Catalonia and Andalusia five followers of an organization responsible for attacks in France and Pakistan,” translated from “La Policía Nacional detiene en Cataluña y Andalucía a cinco seguidores de una organización responsable de atentados en Francia y Pakistán,” Policía Nacional, February 24, 2022 (thanks to Medforth):
Agents of the National Police have arrested five Pakistani citizens – in Barcelona, Gerona, Úbeda (Jaén) and Granada – for their alleged participation in crimes of collaboration with a terrorist organization, and glorification of and incitement to commit terrorist acts.
The operation, carried out last Monday, has culminated in the dismantling of the group of followers, who urged the murder of those who demonstrated against Islam….
