    Perhaps mother er Biden had 'em cased day 1 when he called 75+ million of us "chumps."

    Mother er Biden now has 227k of dead Americans on his side the COVID-19 Death Ledger in 6-SIX-6 months.
    Don't it float, peeg?
    Your orange balloon plaything thought it would be fun to try the no mask, no vaxx thing. He has a hold of people, you would know.

    So ONE president’s behavior and public messaging is now history.
    You own the disease and the blind self destructive ignorance.
    Congrats.

    How can management of senior care facilities NOT mandate vaccination for their staff? W T F

    “Don’t You Work With Old People?”:

    Many Elder-Care Workers Still Refuse to Get COVID-19 Vaccine


    Amid a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,”

    more than 40% of the nation’s nursing home and long-term health care workers have yet to receive vaccinations.

    The pandemic is economically very destructive. About one month after opening up to global tourism, Europe faces renewed travel resrtrictions.

    Travel restrictions are quickly multiplying. France and Germany are already cautioning their citizens against travelling to Spain and Portugal. Today (Friday July 23) Germany is expected to place Spain on its list of high-risk countries, together with the Netherlands. That would mean that only double-jabbed travellers will be able to visit the countries without having to quarantine on their return to Germany and could be hugely damaging to tourism businesses in Mallorca, where Germans represent 40% of overseas visitors.


    Spain’s tourism industry is already warning of a fresh wave of cancellations. The recent surge in new Covid-19 cases in Catalonia is taking its toll on tourist rentals, as more and more people get cold feet. The situation is likely to get even worse in coming days after the European Union recommended against travelling to Catalonia earlier this week. Europe’s biggest tour operator TUI has also announced plans to cancel holidays to hotspots including Bulgaria, Craotia, Italy, Spain and Turkey as uncertainty remains over international travel during the pandemic.

    bad vibes felt at NPR

    The current COVID-19 surge in the U.S. — fueled by the highly contagious delta variant — will steadily accelerate through the summer and fall, peaking in mid-October, with daily deaths more than triple what they are now.


    That’s according to new projections released Wednesday from the COVID-19 Scenario Modeling Hub, a consortium of researchers working in consultation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help the agency track the course of the pandemic…


    “What’s going on in the country with the virus is matching our most pessimistic scenarios,” says Justin Lessler, an epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina who helps run the modeling hub. “We might be seeing synergistic effects of people becoming less cautious in addition to the impacts of the delta variant.


    In the most likely scenario, Lessler says, the U.S. reaches only 70% vaccination among eligible Americans, and the delta variant is 60% more transmissible.


    In that scenario, at the peak in mid-October, there would be around 60,000 cases and around 850 deaths each day, Lessler says.


    Each scenario also includes a range of how bad things could get — the very worst end of the range for the most likely scenario shows about 240,0000 people getting infected and 4,000 people dying each day at the October peak, which would be almost as bad as last winter…


    But overall, the main projection shows a steady slope upwards to the peak in October, and then a steady slope back down…


    At that point, “herd immunity starts kicking in a little more aggressively and we start to see things going down again.” By January 2022, the model shows deaths coming back down to around the current level of about 300 per day.

    still talking about herd immunity

    Even after UK claimed it and it was BS and alsl other places like Manaus where they "had.herd immunity".but then completely obliterated with a variant

    According to current estimates, the Delta variant could be more than twice as transmissible as the original strain of SARS-CoV-2. To find out why, epidemiologist Jing Lu at the Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Guangzhou, China, and his colleagues tracked 62 people who were quarantined after exposure to COVID-19 and who were some of the first people in mainland China to become infected with the Delta strain.


    The team tested study participants’ ‘viral load’ — a measure of the density of viral particles in the body — every day throughout the course of infection to see how it changed over time. Researchers then compared participants’ infection patterns with those of 63 people who contracted the original SARS-CoV-2 strain in 2020.


    In a preprint posted 12 July1, the researchers report that virus was first detectable in people with the Delta variant four days after exposure,compared with an average of six days among people with the original strain, suggesting that Delta replicates much faster. Individuals infected with Delta also had viral loads up to 1,260 times higher than those in people infected with the original strain.

    it's important to distinguish between herd immunity as an epidemiological phenomenon and "herd immunity' enacted as political cant to soothe an endangered populace.

    Early returns from Israel seem to indicate protection from infection aganst the Delta variant wanes to about 16% four months after full vaccination (the Pfizer jab is the main vaccine used in Israel.)

    So far mRNA vaccines still protect robustly against hospitalization and death.

    viruses do not respect international boundaries. so long as any country is vulnerable to runaway infection, we all are. without international cooperation regarding vaccination, it's doubtful COVID can be beaten in any country.

    OSHA (to Biden): all workers need to mask up

    Biden: No.

    (Public health and workplace safety take the back seat to normality theater once again under Biden. COVID could wreck his presidency too.)

    "Models suggest that public mask wearing is most effective at reducing spread of the virus when compliance is high (39). We recommend that mask use requirements are implemented by governments, or, when governments do not, by organizations that provide public-facing services. Such mandates must be accompanied by measures to ensure access to masks, possibly including distribution and rationing mechanisms so that they do not become discriminatory. Given the value of the source control principle, especially for presymptomatic people, it is not sufficient for only employees to wear masks; customers must wear masks as well."

    everybody to wear masks until Delta dies down after culling evangelicals, Qanons, TSAs, kickers, dirt scratchers, bubbas, yahoos, Macho Men, Trash fellators, etc

    the pulmonary viral load of Delta is 1000x that of the original, airborne transmission

    it's still more or less simple-minded to post a handful of links and tweets and call it "the science."

    even the non-peer-reviewed article TSA posted used hedging language like "our evidence suggests/does not suggest."

    but for TSA, that single, non-peer-reviewed study -- despite the existence of numerous conflicting studies -- is "the science," and should be the basis of US COVID policy.
