He'd been surprised, especially by the official Covid-13, I guess.

There are some serious health concerns here. Not just covid, but the injuries possible when you roll your eyes that hard. I mean they could get stuck.

Yep. No one I know or care about in this town hasn't gotten 2 doses and for the last few weeks, anyone who wants a shot can get one, it's wide open. So here in this county if you haven't gotten yours, I think I can safely assume you are on record as having called me a sheep or scared etc. and weren't going to wear a mask etc etc so 


The problem is that the sheep are the only ones using logic.

We need to open schools, but we also need to have sports and activities with parents around?

We need to open businesses, but I have a right to not wear a mask.

The cure can't be worse than the disease, but I'm not taking a vaccine that kills 1 in a million, instead, I'll ride it out with a virus that kills 2 in 100?

In full disclosure...I wish I could just ignore the stupid...but eventually these A-holes are going to pass it around enough so that it mutates and comes back after you and me.  We should require vaccination for anything non-essential....sports, concerts, air travel, restaurants, bars, schools (at least colleges)...and anyone that fears for their own safety can remain at home. 

Everyone has a choice to not get vaccinated.  What they don't have a choice about is putting you and me at risk.

BTW, the definition of a citizen isn't someone entitled to anything (other than maybe a vote...but let's not go there), it's a person owing loyalty to and entitled by birth or naturalization to the protection of a state or nation.

To your question earlier about the apparent disconnect between vaccination increases without what would be assumed logical decreases in infection...

People have decided to do everything they want again, and many are assuming they are less at risk because others are getting vaccinated.  The problem with their logic is that the majority remain susceptible.  More meals out...more shopping trips....more kids sports.  The reality is that if we weren't 30% vaccinated, the numbers would be skyrocketing (assuming similar activity levels). 

At this point...I'm done caring.  My family is vaccinated, and we're staying away from public exposure when reasonable.  No restaurant meals yet....no bars.  If people without vaccinations want to party...go get 'em.  Take your friends with you too.  I'm too tired to fight stupid anymore.


Here in Germany I don't think it can be ascribed to behaviour.  Without any evidence to support my seat-of-the pants analysis, I think it is the new mutations that must be playing havoc with the stats here in Germany. We remain in a soft lock-down (have been since .. whenever, was it November?) and, despite the vaccination program (admittedly kind of sluggish at being rolled out) we are about to enter a hard* lock-down as the third wave hits (defined as case numbers of 200/100,000 over the last seven days). I honestly don't see any change in social behaviour. In fact resistance to the lock-down has waned. Yet case numbers are rising rapidly despite the lock-down and also despite the roll-out of the vaccinations. .. ugh..  

* not a huge difference between the two.. only essential services remain open in both but schools and kindergartens also close down under a hard lock-down.

Some Canadians would want to edit that into:   Making Ontario Great Again!

My self-isolation period is over.  Just spent over 1/2 an hour with a BC public health worker.  At the end of the conversation, I told her that I am glad we do not live in Alberta or Ontario (where I was born and raised).  

Just told my neighbour Kim (who is a biker with a black belt in karate) that we can resume holding hands and kissing.

The district that oversees the school my midmost teaches at decided it was time to have a jr. high volleyball tournament. The did a conference call with the school and told them it was happening and to get their team booked to travel. The school said bad idea, there's this pandemic going on and the kids aren't vaxxed. The Superintendent insists and they are ordered to participate.

The principal mutes the phone while all concerned say "Nope, I ain't going" and then there were some bad words said and then they unmute and say "OK, we'll try to find some chaperones 'cuz the coach ain't going."

They found some parents to chaperone and off flies the team, along with 7(?) other teams and surprise! a kid tests positive. After playing a full day. Every kid is exposed.

So the kids are quarantined in high school classrooms (where they stay on away games) for 10 days. Keep in mind they packed for a weekend. The Superintendent says gee now that everybody's going to be here 10 days they might as well stay and play the regional tournament too.

There are some serious health concerns here. Not just covid, but the injuries possible when you roll your eyes that hard. I mean they could get stuck.

Yeah I got mine about 3 weeks after. That might have been a bad idea. 

Feeling bulletproof now, though. Our county's Rt is something like 1.2 right now, statewide is .98 last I saw. Which is odd because everyone I know who's got a lick of sense here has gotten their second shot, but there are almost zero precautions in stores or restaurants now. So it's still burning through the population that okay I admit to a LOT of Schadenfreude here.
