so covid...

Post by For Sure » Thu Jul 15, 2021 8:43 pm

see the yanks have it, again, they are supposedly 85% vaxxed? See that 1000 tested + from the music fest in Netehrlands? most vaxxed. See RIch Eisen from NFL came down with it, has pfizer x 2. the shit looks to be rebounding in spite of high vax rates? Not sure what it means, but it seems to be becoming a thing again relatively fast. I have taken to wearing a mask again in public, people look at me like Im crazy. of course they may just think im not vaxxed?

One of our county commissioners who was a big presence at press conferences at the Surfside Condo tragedy site just tested positive. He was vaccinated back in March. The rescue efforts at the site may have been a super spreader. News hasn’t followed up on whether others have tested positive.

Not much to say on this topic other than I’ve got two doses of moderna and I still wear a mask while food shopping or at my local Wawa
I still keep hand sanitizer in my car

I'm calling this Phase 2 of COVID. Phase 1 was pre-vac, Phase 2 is post vax. Because we will not reach vax levels high enough to prevent spread, Phase 2 will be long......

From what I can find on Pfizer (what we got so what I pay attention to), 2 shots seems to give about 88 % protection from getting COVID and 96% from hospitalization and pretty much 100% from death.

All of which means we will continue so see vaccinated people get COVID, some get sick, and occasionally, someone die.

With 350+ million of us running around, on any given day you will be able to point to multiple stories of breakthrough cases among vaxed people. Phase 2.

For us, we are vaccinated and are going about our lives. We might get it, but if we do it is not likely to get us very sick and it ain't going to kill us.

Your milage may vary.

its going to be crazy by the fall, then instead of an insurgence on our CAPITAL, they will storm the vax sites looking finally get vaccinated. I commute to Manhattan everyday wearing my masks even though I got 2x Pfizer in April 😷😷😷

People die from the flu every year too. No one ever said that the vaccine was %100 effective. All the people getting really sick from the Delta variant have not been vaccinated. The press will just not stop whipping this up. Bottom line if you are vaccinated you may get it but your not gonna die.

No they won't ~ for them this covid nonsense is a conspiracy whipped up by that cabal of Satanic, cannibalistic pedophiles ~ you know, the ones running that global child sex trafficking ring who did all they could to destroy Trump's presidency. Those guys.

Oh, and just so we're following the bouncing ball here, Phase 3 will be when there is a new variant that is not impacted by the vaccines. Then it's back to the bunkers.

That was thing thing with the plague (not comparing except for this), it kept coming back. They would get it out of town x or country y and it would come back a year later. It was probably mutating but they didn't have the science toys we do now.

Just checked the NYT map that shows where the covid cases are highest..

Missouri and Arkansas. Two of the dumbest states in the USA.

Sprinkle in a little Texas and Florida

I saw the cdc numbers last night for post vax hospitalization and death. The appear to be a bit higher than the anticipated %, but I think that the higher % don’t kick in until we reach the + 65 crowd. So does “going on with your life” mean you wear a mask in crowds or no? I was just getting use to not wearing one, but think I’m going back to wearing them in public full time.

This is false, but what ever gets you through the night. As posted above, the older or unhealthier you are the more likely you will die or require hospitalization, even if vaxxed

I get it, but A lot of us are going to concerts this summer with thousands of people. Figured this is a relevant topic to discuss with this in mind. A few days ago I wouldn’t have worn a mask at these shows, but as I’m educating my self on the topic I believe that it would be smarter to wear one. Maybe that will change as more info comes in.

My point with pointing out the dude from the nfl network...he is mid 50s, had both vax and is saying he is sick as hell, believing it that if wasn’t vaxxed he would be dead, that’s how bad he feels. I’m not looking to feel that shitty anytime soon

Someone in the Foo Fighters organization came down with it after shutting out non vaxxed fans from their shows.

Have to imagine it’s going to be tough to get through a tour without anyone getting it. Going to have to implement series practices to keep every one in the band and crew coved free.

Of course there's going to be a surge now that we're opening back up. The key is to look at the trends and where it's occuring. And why it's occuring. Then, take action.
