Maria Cordero, a well-known Hong Kong artist, more commonly known as “Fat Mama” in Hong Kong, was recently diagnosed with COVID-19. She previously received four shots of the Chinese Sinovac vaccine. Although the fever has now subsided, she has not yet fully recovered.
Maria is a Hong Kong singer, actress and cookery show host. She is now 68 years old. On June 24, 2022, she Maria announced on her Facebook page that she had been diagnosed with the virus. She said through a video clip that she was still normal the day before, and she went to the mountains, she exercised, she shopped and dined out.
On the 24th, after getting up and before going out to the mountains again, she felt a small headache, and the result of the rapid test was positive. After that the headache became more and more severe. She immediately alerted the government and began quarantine at home, avoiding contact with her family and maids, telling them not to go out too.
In the same video he also claimed to be “an extremely careful person”. He has a quick test every day and always wears a mask when he goes out. With all of these good practices in place, she is still puzzled as to how she might become infected with the virus. Maria has said many times: “It’s really, really unexpected.” She urged everyone else to be more careful to stay safe.
As of June 27, Maria said on Facebook that her fever had subsided, but she was still coughing badly and this also happened during wheezing. She felt it was a bad experience. However, she took the opportunity to thank everyone for their concern.
Maria received her fourth dose of the Sinovac vaccine made in China two months ago. At the time, she even uploaded a photo of the injection process to Facebook and gave him a thumbs up for her.
In recent years, he has actively participated in many pro-CCP (Communist Party of China) activities, including chairing police rallies during the “anti-extradition” movement and co-signing support for Hong Kong’s National Security Act. In March of this year, she visited the Tsing Yi “Fangcang” Hospital in Hong Kong as a rubber stamp Chinese legislature delegate and boasted that the hospital environment was “better than a private hospital. “.
Studies regulate Sinovac vaccine ineffective against Omicron
There are all sorts of variants of Omicron currently in circulation around the world. A Yale University study found that complete inoculation of the Sinovac vaccine would be ineffective against the Omicron variant. The findings were published in the medical journal Nature Medicine in January 2022.
Researchers from Yale University in the United States and the Dominican Republic analyzed the serum of 101 volunteers from the Dominican Republic. The results showed that no antibodies were detected to neutralize Omicron in those who received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine. And those who received the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) vaccine and booster injections from Pfizer-BioNTech had a 1.4-fold increase in antibody levels against Omicron.
The document also states that those who received the Pfizer-BioNTech booster after two doses of the Sinovac vaccine produced antibodies at similar levels to those produced after receiving two doses of the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) vaccine.
The University of Hong Kong and the Chinese University of Hong Kong also published similar results in December 2021. In their study they tested two batches of 25 people, the first batch of 25 had received two doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and only five people the serum contained neutralizing antibodies against Omicron “and the vaccine efficiency was significantly reduced to 20-24 percent.” For the twenty-five people who received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine, none of their serum could neutralize the Omicron virus. The study also found that the antibody level after three doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was sufficient to protect against the Micron, while the antibody level after three doses of Sinovac vaccine did not provide sufficient protection.
