@Hiroshi13 - that’s the thing. It’s completely misleading to say the vaccinated are being punished “for compliance” instead of “even though they have complied”. The real reason they are being punished is because of anti-mask, anti-vaccine people being unwilling to do what is necessary. Because of that, mask mandates continue. It’s basically the strong trying to protect the weak and then the weak blaming the strong for not being strong enough.

If the anti-mask, anti-vaccine people won’t do what is necessary to protect themselves and help get through this then they only have themselves to blame. This is not the fault of those who choose to get vaccinated. Anti-vaccine ultimately amounts to pro-illness

the alleged benefits of vaccination are not equal for everyone...
“alleged” is the wrong word here. You have to accept that there are actual benefits if you are going to finish with “not equal for everyone”

But Yasuhiro Sakaue, a professor at Hitotsubashi University who has written extensively on the intersection of sports and politics, warned that if the games cause a spike in COVID-19 cases it could damage the integrity of the imperial family.
I disagree with this. It would have been better if the emperor stayed away, I agree, but only because it’s clear that the event is a farce and the public are not taken into account for any of the decisions made whatsoever. However, the public know what is going on, and the imperial family’s integrity will remain intact. IOC, JOC, LDP… that’s a different story.

I believe that a lot of Japanese perfectly understood the subtle nuances in the Emperor's speech, unfortunately these nuances will be lost to the international crowd.
Yep. Several people I spoke to yesterday asked if I had seen it (I hadn’t) and all of them talked about “celebrate” being left out specifically. I am yet to see any international news or hear from any friends abroad about it.

So are the CDC right wing antivaxxer nuts now too???
Clearly not, as indicated in the first point in the link you provided.
Vaccine breakthrough cases are expected. COVID-19 vaccines are effective and are a critical tool to bring the pandemic under control. However, no vaccines are 100% effective at preventing illness in vaccinated people. There will be a small percentage of fully vaccinated people who still get sick, are hospitalized, or die from COVID-19.

So thats few to zero for the total age group of UNDER 30. zero for the one group and 12 and 41 for the others.
Yes, but you've categorized them all under one group by saying "under 30" in your most recent comment. That is misinformation.

she said young people are dying to try to get the emotional response article for CNN to push vaccination.
Are people in their 30's considered young? Usually they would be. Particularly in the field of medicine.
You've also just commented the following.
Few to zero people under 30 died in Alabama from COVID.
Yet in your earlier comment
only 41 deaths even 24-29.
You're absolutely trying to misinform with the words you yourself choose. If you had left off the "zero" I wouldn't have pulled you up on that.

so "young" people are 30+ now?
Yes that is misinformation. Saying "People in their 30s are young" is completely different from saying what you said which is ""young" people are 30+"

It's pretty simple. Having the vaccine is more effective at protecting you against the virus than not having the vaccine. As 2020hindsights puts it, if 100% of people are vaccinated, then 100% of people contracting the virus would be vaccinated. Disagreeing with that makes no difference to it being the reality. Just like if 100% of people were unvaccinated, 100% of people contracting the virus would be unvaccinated. Of course the numbers will be different when the populations aren't so clearly defined, but as more people take the vaccine you will of course see more vaccinated people being among the numbers of covid infections. That's just simple math.

I want to know how the nightmare scenario that the writer paints in this article matches with the fact that in CCP China, the virus is officially defeated, and the pandemic is over.
Check the photos in the article about the detention center in China. Certainly doesn’t look like they’ve defeated the virus.

I think it's rough to convict her of abandoning the bodies... gave birth on the 15th November, to twins, and delivered to a hospital the next day. She possibly COULD have made a call to emergency staff earlier, but she clearly never intended to abandon the bodies.
However, a suspended sentence might be one of the best outcomes she could hope for. Justice in Japan seems to be very fickle at the best of times... she could make things worse for herself in trying to appeal the decision.

Yeah, like the antiscience clowns who continue to claim that ivermectin and other drugs don't work, despite the mounting scientific evidence saying they are safe and effective.
Ivermectin isn’t effective against Covid in the doses deemed safe for human use. It has been seen to be very slightly effective in much higher doses however those doses are considered very dangerous for human use and the risks far outweigh the benefits. That’s why it isn’t approved for Covid treatment. There are drugs which have proved effective. Ivermectin isn’t one of them.

@ReynardFox - yeah that was kind of what I was suggesting. Those side effects I listed were for ivermectin which some here consistently say is safer than the vaccine. Not only is it NOT, but it also isn’t effective in the doses that are approved for use in treatment of some human ailments.

And the FDA says this too.
can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hypotension (low blood pressure), allergic reactions (itching and hives), dizziness, ataxia (problems with balance), seizures, coma and even death.
Can’t believe people are suggesting this is safe.
But we’re not talking about ivermectin.

antibody dependent enhancement.
You’re saying it’s better to die from the virus than to let it give you some kind of long lasting antibodies? Interesting theory.

The rest of the planet will soon realize that the only way out is opening up and letting the virus spread throughout a vaccinated population
Vaccinated. That is the key word.

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.
Yep. It’s putting the seatbelt on before the accident, not trying to do it afterwards.

@theResident - yeah, I get that. It’s just frustrating watching people desperately trying to convince themselves and others that vaccines and vaccinated people are the problem.
@Attila - I hate masks, hate them with a passion, but knowing that even after being vaccinated I still have a slight chance of spreading the virus, I will wear one when I’m out and about until the majority of people around me are also at a reduced risk of contracting the virus too. It’s a small inconvenience to take for the safety of the people I care about. But I understand your point.
3 ( +3 / -0 )
So can a vaccinated person still contract and spread the virus, albeit to a lesser extent? Then is a vaccinated person with covid more of a threat to an unvaccinated person without it than the unvaccinated is to the vaccinated?
Are you really worried about the threat to an unvaccinated person from a vaccinated person? 1: Who is a bigger threat to unvaccinated people, vaccinated or other unvaccinated? 2: Who is a bigger threat to vaccinated people, unvaccinated or other vaccinated. The answer to both questions is the same.

@Cricky and Some dude. I was bullied through middle school years. Hated it. One particular guy who was doing it was just a thug. Stabbed a friend of my brother’s in the back at a party they were at. He also did time for rape. Some bullies are just kids joining the pack. Others are real psychopaths. None deserve any further thought. Hope you guys are all good.
