Posted in: Beach volleyball match canceled after Czech player tests positive for COVID See in context

This is ridiculous. That’s why canceling the game was the best option given the fear mongering and hysteria. Either cancel them or organize them so that the athletes can at least compete fairly. Not this circus of fear mongering that put athletes out without a chance to compete because of being just positive. What a ridiculous s…. show.

Posted in: China says WHO plan to audit labs in COVID origins probe 'arrogant' See in context

The natural origin is still the most likely explanation for the COVID pandemic, by a huge lot. 

You don’t have the qualification and expertise to state that. Whatever you brag about is therefore pointless and meaningless.

lab origin as if it was the only explanation (even with clear evidence against it)

This is factually wrong and the scientific community which you don’t belong to has not reached a consensus about it. Serious people are are not obsessed, they want a scientific and professional investigation of all possible origins of this virus. China has refused that so far, forbidding direct interviews with the lab personnel and free access to the lab facilities and documents for investigation. If China has no issue with the virus origin, they could just make the investigation easier and we could all move on. They aren’t. Instead they chose to bring BS theories and manipulate the truth, even rejecting now that the virus originated naturally in China.

For that reason, serious scientists have the right to consider all origins because there is simply not a strong consensus on a single one.

Posted in: France launches vaccine pass for cultural venues See in context

I vaccinated myself to protect myself. I expect others to get vaccinated to protect those who cannot be vaccinated.

Choose not to be: ok.

Want equal privileges: too bad

Expect us to feel bad: keep on waiting. And waiting. And waiting. And waiting.........

This is embarrassing non sense. I am going to get vaccinated because I am fed up of all this circus. But I am totally against this pass thing, it goes too far. Having simplistic thinking like yours is not helping. This goes way beyond just vaccination or heath. It's a social, a philosophical and a civilizational issue. It can't be resolved by such aggressive and ideologic postures.

Posted in: France launches vaccine pass for cultural venues See in context

As an immediate problem, yes, the death rate is very important.

No it is not. Saying the same over and over does not make it true. You don't understand what the death rate is. The death rate (or mortality rate) ) is a measure of the number of deaths (in general, or due to a specific cause) in a particular population, scaled to the size of that population, per unit of time. I leave you as an exercise to calculate it.

But if cases are allowed to increase unchecked with many still unvaccinated, there is greater chance of variants with a greater transmission rate, higher death rate and vaccine resistance.

This is BS. Provide any data and scientific publications about the association of variants and higher fatality rate (not dead rate) and vaccine resistance (and what do you mean by vaccine resistance? By itself it means nothing). Also the statement "greater chance of variants with a greater transmission rate" is equally pointless. Because this is not new, this has been known for ever by virologists, this is not specific to COVID. So making it sound dramatic is not helping.

Posted in: South Australia locks down after 5 virus cases detected; 14 mil nationwide under lockdown See in context

Quick action prevents deaths. Better to save the lives by going early than counting the deaths and when sufficient have died, then trying to contain.

BS! Lockdowns are not a free lunch without their consequences. A right balance must be taken between the acceptable risk (a world without death is not our world) and the social consequences of such authoritarian measures. Leading by the panic like in Australia and many other nations should not be an option in developed countries.

Posted in: How organizers hope to manage coronavirus at the Olympics See in context

This is a Joke, the whole purpose of daily tests is to screen people, and for that you need to do it with the more sensitive test, if confirmation is necessary then you switch to the more specific test to eliminate false positives. Doing antigen tests first means they sacrifice safety for convenience, cases that would have been detected in the PCR can be left undetected by antigen tests, leaving the person able to transmit the disease at least for one full day.

What you should say in a clear and concise way is the following. Based on available data, antigen tests have a sensitivity of 80.0% and specificity of 98.9% among symptomatic persons; accuracy is lower (sensitivity 41.2% and specificity 98.4%) when used for screening of asymptomatic persons.

Different data show a correct identification of COVID-19 infection in an average of 72% of people with symptoms, compared to 58% of people without symptoms. And in people who did not have COVID-19, antigen tests correctly ruled out infection in 99.5% of people with symptoms and 98.9% of people without symptoms.

but with the Delta variant you can get infected just be facing the infected person for a few seconds (see the Australian video for proof).

BS! Provide a scientific study with scientific data and analysis, not an anecdote originating from the media frenzy.

@Zoroto

Since you are not providing (and I was not holding my breath you would) any scientific background for what you claimed based on BS media reports, let me do it for you since I can't leave the BS you are speeding uncorrected. A recent simulation was done using droplets dynamics assuming that the Indian variant is 2.5 times as contagious as the original strain (could be well overestimated but let's assume that). With an infected person speaking and not wearing a mask, a person standing 2 meters away has a possibility of getting infected reaching 10% in 45 minutes for the original strain and less than 20 minutes for the Indian variant. Again that could be well be an overestimation and I did't check how they handled the fluid dynamics. But that's a far cry of the mere seconds needed for people just passing each other BS. Here you have it, real science, real math, real physics. Not silly nonsense based on anecdotes.

But I am not surprised anyone of the fearful people spreading silly nonsense whenever they can, nonsense particularly coming from a country (Australia) which is trying everything to scare its population in oder to justify its authoritarian lockdowns.

But still you will find comments here saying that young healthy people have absolutely nothing to worry about from the infection

Yes absolutely they do in most countries. Just look at the data instead of polluting this forum with your misinformed and often meaningless posts. I told you once, your posts are very painful to read.

become the predominant virus are pictures of ICUs full of 30-year-olds. 

This is BS and help achieve nothing but hysteria. Provide data, how many are they, how many of them have comorbidities, provide a comparison with previous months. This has been extremely annoying during all of this, people just throwing around statements without any professional quality in reporting.

They did the same with the English variant, various people (including doctors in ICUs) claiming that the variant was more pathogenic than the original strain. This was proven wrong by two studies afterwards. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Indian variant is more pathogenic, so at this point there is no evidence that this variant will cause significantly more young healthy individuals to develop a serious illness than the original strain. Since it is more contagious (not a surprise at all in itself), in absolute numbers more of these people can be seen in ICUs. However thinking in absolute numbers is of course flawed.

The California Department of Public Health said in a statement that the mask requirement “also will ensure that all kids are treated the same,” without any stigma attached to those who are vaccinated or unvaccinated.

Such an absurd and stupid statement. Makes zero sense. I can’t believe they are not even ashamed to say that. Just say the damn truth. You want to establish an hygienist regime and stop being hypocrite about it. This is what happens when a bunch of extremist left people get the power. They just can’t help themselves but to impose their extremist ideologies on others.

This means nothing, this is crap, it's garbage. As a tax payer here for 20 years, I want answers to hard questions which the government's puppets called Japanese journalists are not willing to ask. As a tax payer, I want to know how he thinks that it is morally acceptable to have spent so much of OUR money, our money, for this circus and somehow we ended up being told to watch it on TV. Either they go for it and they make it so that the population is still associated to the JO since it has paid for it. Or they just cancel the damn thing. Not the bizarre atrocity that was decided and just solely satisfies financially the IOC and saves the face of the oyajis at the government.

Posted in: Global COVID-19 deaths hit 4 million amid rush to vaccinate See in context

The toll is three times the number of people killed in traffic accidents around the globe every year.

Yeah sure just use a comparison which is convenient. Let's look at another one. Let's look at the world hunger facts (https://www.worldhunger.org/world-child-hunger-facts/):

*Overall, 5.6 million children under age five died in 2016, nearly 15,000 daily** (World Health Organization [WHO], 2016). The risk of a child dying before five years of age is highest in Africa (76.5 per 1000 live births), about 8 times higher than in Europe (9.6 per 1000 live births) (WHO, 2016).*

*Approximately 3.1 million children die from undernutrition each year** (UNICEF, 2018a). Hunger and undernutrition contribute to more than half of global child deaths, as undernutrition can make children more vulnerable to illness and exacerbate disease (UNICEF, 2018a).*

Yes millions of children die every year form just hunger. And mostly nobody cares. Neither do the hypocrites that call to save the lives of mostly elderlies using lockdowns and authoritarian hygienist measures. But they did not give a damn about the life of children who were not even given a chance to live, as long as it was far away from them. Once they were exposed to a danger, they all became suddenly altruistic. The dance of hypocrites....

In a related development, the organizing committee said it has decided to ask the general public not to gather along the roadside to watch Olympic marathons and race walk events in Sapporo between Aug 5 and Aug 8, the final day of the games.

Yeah but for ** sake, then what the tax payers will be able to watch? They are just being used to pay for something that they can't be part of anymore. The apathy of the Japanese population is disgraceful, how can they accept that? I don't give a damn about the virus excuses BS anymore. Either people can be part of this as they are paying for it. Or it just must be cancelled. This can't turn into an event to just fill the pocket of IOC and save the face of the Japanese sponsors and politicians.

Makes really little sense to report the case for the younger population. It would be way more informative to give the number of cases separately for the people in their 50s, 60s, 70s and aged 80+ years old. Then give how many of them are vaccinated and how many of them have severe complications.
