What the Delta variant has done is expose the uncomfortable truth that many have been warned about.
”The natural immune protection that develops after a SARS-CoV-2 infection offers considerably more of a shield against the Delta variant of the pandemic coronavirus than two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, according to a large Israeli study that some scientists wish came with a ‘Don’t try this at home’ label,” the Scientific American reported Thursday.
“The newly released data show people who once had a SARS-CoV-2 infection were much less likely than vaccinated people to get Delta, develop symptoms from it, or become hospitalized with serious COVID-19.”
Put another way, vaccinated individuals were 27 times more likely to get a symptomatic COVID infection than those with natural immunity from COVID.”

Will health insurance companies provide coverage for side effects or disability resulting from vaccination?

So no, it is not that lowdowns produced heavier impact from the pandemic, places with the heaviest burden by the pandemic were the places where it became easier to justify costly measures like lockdowns.
You need to study and increase your understanding on how lockdowns impact your health and negativity affect your immunity to illnesses.

Well stated and exactly on point.
And for those that do not understand, then be ready to kiss the normalcy you have always known, Goodbye.

Looks like you skipped over the part of the article that clearly states how lockdowns have worked exceptionally well (in NZ in particular) at saving lives and getting people's lives back to normal.
If you look at continental data where most of humanity lives ( and not on an isolated and sparsely populated island), lockdowns have not worked. In fact, Covid infections have been higher than average in the majority of these locked down places.
As for your expectations of things returning to normal in NZ under a government pursuing a zero Covid policy: Good luck.
You’ll die of old age before normalcy returns. Even under 100% vaccination.
Just another example of a flattened learning curve from a nation whose main industry is producing sheep.

What these people will eventually realize with regards to a highly contagious mutating respiratory virus is:
Lockdowns don’t work
Experimental Vaccines don’t work
The next leap in idiocy will occur when the Pfizer vaccine is granted approval (out of EUA) as its efficacy drops below 40%, the other vaccines are still dispensed under EUA (which they shouldn’t be), the hospitals fill with a majority of vaccinated Covid patients, boosters are promoted that are ineffective, and vaccine side effect victims mount.
This has been a complete public health debacle since it started. Unfortunately, the fear being promoted coupled by an embarrassingly flat learning curve by a blinkered public hasn’t helped.
This is a Pandemic of the Vaccinated.
Maybe Japan will figure it out.

A Health Pass is anything but that.
First of all, are we all to assume that health is a steady state condition and that immunity from all infectious variants is absolute and indefinite?
Vaccine efficacy is already proving fleeting. And in likely non existent for some of the emerging variants.
Then what? A phone App or piece of paper that is meaningless, except for representing another block of government bureaucracy. Another government fee.
No logic. No positive impact. No health.

Japan better watch itself.
Their “Sugar Daddy” is in fact led by an incompetent geriatric that cannot be depended upon.
It’s time that Japan wakes up and starts behaving like a real nation. To make its own unique decisions specific to its own unique geopolitical reality.
Yes, Afghanistan will change China’s strategy towards Japan. And it won’t make things easier for Japan.
In addition, Afghanistan has clearly demonstrated that Japan better change its strategy towards the US and China.
And Japan better do so quickly.

“The vast majority of the COVAX supply will go to low- and middle-income countries,” Gavi said in an email about its latest supply forecast. For many countries, it said, “COVAX is the main, if not the only source of COVID-19 vaccine supply.”
The vast majority of low income countries are figuring out what the richer ones that have been scammed will eventually figure out.
COVAX is becoming the main and only source of ineffective experimental concoctions that are proving themselves to be increasingly unnecessary.

There are studies that are studying “brain fog” , dementia, and Alzheimer’s for a variety of ailments and infections. There always are.
No news there.
How about some thorough studies on Covid-19 vaccines effects. Let’s study on where we are today for example. And keep it simple for some.

The government plans to operate the venues at Haneda and Narita airports through early January next year to administer two doses of Pfizer Inc.'s vaccine to people aged 12 and over who do not have certificates of residence in Japan.
They’ll have so many does they won’t know what to do with them all.
Japan has slipped so far behind current developments that it’s laughable.

Following the science is what the professionals and experts do for a living, …
And what does that have anything to do with positions you have been posting?
Much of the science and professionalism has been suppressed since this Covid debacle has started.
The narrative is unwinding. And the perpetrators of this this s called “state of emergency” are fumbling even worse these days.
It is the vaccinated that are being played.

“Do the vaccines ensure better odds? Well, according to recent statistics from Massachusetts, not necessarily, as they report over 5100 infections and 80 deaths of fully vaccinated patients. The media keeps telling us that only the unvaccinated are dying, but this is a lie, like so many other lies they have been peddling when it comes to covid. So, what’s the point of taking an experimental vaccine if the death rate of the virus is so low and the jab doesn’t necessarily protect you anyway?
There is no point. The science and the stats do not support it. The vaccines can’t even be credited with the decline in infections and deaths this year; the numbers plunged in January – Only 5% of the population was vaccinated by February. The only explanation for this is that the population hit herd immunity many months ago. Remember when governments said that they needed 70% herd immunity or vaccination to stop the lockdowns and mandates? The goalposts have been moves several times and the government “science” changes monthly. Now they claim herd immunity doesn’t matter and demand 100% vaccination.”

LMAO. Since when is an insect born parasite similar to a viral infection that experimental mRNA gene therapy treatment is increasingly being shown to be unsuccessful .
In a conference call with reporters, Sahin said he believed BioNTech's malaria efforts have "a high likelihood for success".
Just like the success of the current Covid debacle. They should at least wait to confirm success on that experiment.
I believe the mRNA infomercial posters should stick with their short lived promotion of EUA medicines, where they can rely on the unknown data to support their essays.

Biden steps up efforts to fight virus surge fueled by Delta variant
Well , we all know how much difficulty Biden has with steps. Especially upward ones.
I doubt he has the cognitive ability to understand what’s really go on. He hasn’t for nearly 50 yrs, so one can’t expect him to do so now.

It's EXACTLY like they don't care about the rest of the world! The unvaccinated are keeping hospitals full and covid stories front and centre in the news.
Actually, the unvaccinated are doing no such thing. Fairly soon the vaccinated will learn the ramifications of the EUA concoctions they have been subjected to. Not that I care particularly .
How gullible have some become? Where the vaccinated are preaching in mortal fear about infection from a disease they are supposedly protected against.
”The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated.
As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized.
The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications.”
You think? Look around to Iceland, Israel, Singapore, and other highly vaccinated nations. Notice anything?

Fauci just announced that the viral load in the nasal pharynx of a vaccinated person infected with Delta is "exactly the same" as in an unvaccinated person who is infected.
Another fraud that clearly reveals how hopefully dysfunctional the whole Covid management has been.
And his only remaining sliver of hope is to try and convince a swindled public that the unvaccinated are responsible for getting the vaccinated ill with Covid. Wait until more realize that last the opposite is closer to the truth.
This would be comedic if there wasn’t so much criminal negligence behind these government tools.

Tokyo Gov Yuriko Koike on Wednesday urged younger people to cooperate with measures to bring down the high number of infections and get vaccinated, saying their activities are key to slowing the surge during the Olympics.
And common sense urges to do the exact opposite.
The more they try, the more ridiculous they sound.
They decided to host the Olympics. 80% of Japan were either against it or obvious to the event.
And now we get more advice from an irresponsible and irrelevant government shill.

That makes no sense, the risk from COVID is much higher than this possibility. Making people think this risk somehow is more important than the infection is the misinformation part.
Trusting the government is also a completely illogical concern, the medical and scientific professionals are the ones that more strongly recommend the vaccines, whatever the government says about it becomes irrelevant.

My understanding is that around 97% of the people getting hospitalized for Covid did not get vaccinated. That is a very significant statistic.
Maybe you should closely re-examine your “understanding “ by looking at cases in countries like Israel, the UK, and others.
Especially if your relying on a “significant statistic” that is incorrect.
