China Thursday reported small coronavirus outbreaks driven by the Delta variant in three provinces as a cluster linked to an eastern airport spreads despite mass testing and a vaccination drive

That might be so or it might not. Make of CCP controlled media news what you want. It certainly seems this sudden re-appearance of Corona means that the CCP wants their disastrous handling of the floods in Henan province out of the news. Bringing back Corona will do that.

It's bound to happen, it's all over the world now.

I support vaccines over hard lockdowns.

I'm sure Xi will take that into consideration :-)

Engineering it is one thing, but then also controlling and mastering it, is of course another.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work better against Delta, and maybe they could use them, or another vaccine that works in a similar way as a booster, at least for large cities. I thought they had exceeded 65 percent vaccinated already, but if not, yes, they need to. They do have a huge number of people spread out over an extremely large area, so it will take time.

I don’t trust a thing that comes out of a CCP mouthpiece. Oh hold…Neither anything from a small neighbors media either for that matter.

That small neighbor you mention does not censor their press or the internet. Anybody in that small neighbor can read the international press and see multiple takes on the world's events. This is quite unlike the highly restricted press and internet in China. That small neighbor is not repressive like its vastly larger and vastly more insecure neighbor. They are worlds apart in terms of personal freedom and access to information.

China has never told the truth about the number of infections and deaths from Covid-19. Satellite images of Chinese hospitals and morgues paint a very different picture than the CCP has told the world. The pandemic was raging in Wuhan long before Chinese officials admit. Unusually crowded hospital parking lots refute the official party line.

Both are necessary until sufficient numbers of people are fully vaccinated with effective vaccines. It isn't either/or - unless they want lots of dead people and thousands of variants.

Too bad COVID doesn't care about my personal sense of privacy or freedom. It doesn't care at all.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work better against Delta

Not if we’re to believe Israeli data suggesting a reduced effectiveness against Delta compared with the Wuhan strain which both these vaccines were designed for.

You're answering the wrong question. Yes, they are slightly reduced in effectiveness, but as vaccines go (but still very effective). But what the poster meant, is that Pfizer and Moderna are better than other brands of vaccine against the delta variant.

That small neighbour would be North Korea?

There is nothing in either the article or the poster’s comments that in any way lends credence to your assumption about what the poster was suggesting. If Farmboy reads this, perhaps he would care to clarify exactly what meant to say.
