The worst handling of the virus of any developed country. They’ll have lockdowns for years.

Wakarimasen and Perry are right- California is a desert and they knew the risk of leaving all that dead wood and brush. They serve as tinder so once fires start, which they do every year, they spread quickly.

Case counts are irrelevant.

More concerning, however, is that 58% of COVID hospitalizations in Israel are from fully vaccinated people. 84% of cases are from vaccinated people.

But in the U.S., almost ALL cases are from unvaccinated people?

Someone is lying here. And I'm betting it's not Israel.

cia is right. They spent too much time practicing their celebratory protests, not enough on soccer. Keep political agendas off the playing field.

Hopefully they’re not still on lockdown.

Posted in: Johnson resisted 2nd lockdown as 'most of those dying were over 80': ex-aide See in context

I’m betting Johnson’s comments were taken out of context here. I think he was merely pointing out COVID was not the lethal threat people believed it to be early on.

And how’d that lockdown work out for the UK? Looks like it didn’t or made it worse.

Also Australia is misguided in focusing on cases. Look at Japan. Almost all of new cases are young people.

The most successful U.S. States, the ones many are now moving to, protected the vulnerable, then opened up. Australia can learn from them.

Posted in: Freedom or folly? UK's end to mandatory masks sows confusion See in context

Tortoise- I think many are fed up with these mandates, that produce detrimental results to society as a whole, in many places. Funny the media doesn't mention the suicides, OD's, kids depressed, etc. All who want the vaccine have received it. There are highly effective therapeutics. That there will be an unlucky few- the unvaccinated young or fully vaccinated vulnerable people that succumb to COVID- either case is highly, highly unlikely- is a poor reason to keep everyone burdened with never-ending mandates. COVID risk has diminished greatly since March 2020 in the UK (and USA).

Interestingly, King's College reports that 47% of new COVID cases in the UK are from those having received at least one vaccine dose. The vaccine clearly doesn't totally prevent COVID, but it will prevent serious illness. I think for most in the 40+ crowd, vaccines make sense. But people by now have to make their own choice.

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

Snowy said it well. So much misinformation and propaganda from people like Fauci have caused people to distrust anything from government.

Regardless, vaccinate the vulnerable and as many others that want it and open up.

Posted in: Mandatory indoor mask use returns to Los Angeles See in context

Hospital capacity is not at risk. Young people are getting Delta. It is a lot less lethal. There are many different highly effective therapeutics. This is not March 2020. Newsom trying to milk the COVID fear cow one last time.

Vaccinate the vulnerable then remove all restrictions. Unvaccinated have already made their choice- Delta won’t change that.

Thus, in spite of the Delta spike still going up in the UK, they’re reopening next week.

Posted in: Sydney coronavirus cases spike as lockdown falters See in context

They need to vaccinate the vulnerable and let everyone else catch the Delta variant- seriously. Otherwise there will be on-again, off-again lockdowns for the next 10 years.

Hindsight is 20/20, but relying exclusively on an experimental vaccine that many will not take, understandably, to control COVID was a poor choice.

Community spread is a key piece of herd immunity. UK will be there shortly with all the young, unvaccinated people catching Delta.

Posted in: Over 70% of Japan's elderly to be vaccinated by end of July: tally See in context

Hakman- indeed, once the vulnerable are vaccinated, Japan can open up 100% from a health standpoint. The threat of overburdened hospitals due to COVID- currently there are 63 patients COVID patients in all of Tokyo- would be diminished significantly. Readily available therapeutics also prevent serious illness.

This has been proven in many areas, even with increased cases from Delta, which is not very lethal.

Japanese society also tends to be healthier and cleaner, so Japan faces a minimal threat compared to most places.

Black- my point exactly in my post, which was deleted. Truth hurts sometimes. Hate to see her turn into another LeBron, controlled by the commies, and torpedo women's tennis, much like LeBron has killed the NBA. Meanwhile, we in the U.S. know who is attacking Asians due to CRT, but unfortunately no SJW's willing to step forward for some reason.

I guess Toyota did the political calculus and decided that it is not worth standing up to fraudulent elections.

As a side note, majority of Americans support a full forensic audit of the elections.

It’s mainly young people getting infected with the Delta virus. Hospitalizations continue to be very low- 60 for all of Tokyo.

Delta is hardly a concern in the UK, despite the spike in cases. They’re fully opening in a couple weeks.

Vaccinate the vulnerable then open up.

Eric, lots of African Americans are reluctant. Historically, experimental vaccines were used on them.

Regardless, all high risk people should get it. For them, the risk of getting seriously ill from the vaccine is lower than getting seriously ill from COVID.
