    "There were ZERO available ICU beds in Mississippi as of early this morning. None," Woodward said on Twitter. "That means hospitals across the state may not be able to provide the level of care needed to you or your loved one. Not just for COVID-19 but FOR ANY EMERGENCY CARE."

    Highly recommended:



    “Those who are pushing these vaccine mandates and vaccine passports … they’re doing so much more damage to vaccine confidence than anybody else,” says Dr. Martin Kulldorff, one of the world’s leading epidemiologists.

    when was the last time the flu did this to us?

    the haters of the world are FOS

    Associate Vice Chancellor for Clinical Affairs Dr. Alan Jones said UMMC is headed toward "total failure of the hospital system" if something doesn't change.


    "Everything's full," Jones said at the conference. "If there were a bus wreck of kids, we would not be able to take care of all those kids at this hospital."


    UMMC is seeing an increase in healthy, younger patients and people without pre-existing conditions due to the Delta variant. The pediatric hospital is completely full as well, Jones said.

    It means if you want to have a better chance to survive this you should get a vaccination

    we never got herd immunity against smallpox, but we controlled it with ring vaccination.

    not the head of oxford. head of oxford vaccine group

    and his comments about herd immunity, if you actually read them, suggested that even if we reach ~95% vaccinations, those other 5% are almost certain to get covid over time.

    "We know very clearly with coronavirus that this current variant, the Delta variant, will still infect people who have been vaccinated and that does mean that anyone who's still unvaccinated, at some point, will meet the virus," he told MPs.
    he's still urging everybody to get vaccinated

    the people saying "everyone's going to get it" don't seem to care much about how that process unfolds in time.

    what we do now still makes a difference.

    In simple terms, many people who caught the original virus didn’t pass it to anyone, but most people who catch Delta create clusters of infection. That partly explains why cases have risen so explosively. It also means that the virus will almost certainly be a permanent part of our lives, even as vaccines blunt its ability to cause death and severe disease.


    The U.S. now faces a dispiriting dilemma. Last year, many people were content to buy time for vaccines to be developed and deployed. But vaccines are now here, uptake has plateaued, and the first surge of the vaccine era is ongoing. What, now, is the point of masking, distancing, and other precautions?


    The answer, as before, is to buy time—for protecting hospitals, keeping schools open, reaching unvaccinated people, and more. Most people will meet the virus eventually; we want to ensure that as many people as possible do so with two doses of vaccine in them, and that everyone else does so over as much time as possible. The pandemic isn’t over, but it will be: The goal is still to reach the endgame with as little damage, death, and disability as possible.

    more of his comments

    But Pollard – who chairs Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) but is not specifically a member of the Covid JCVI committee – questioned whether boosters would be needed.

    “The time we would need to boost is if we see evidence that there was an increase in hospitalisation – or the next stage after that, which would be people dying – amongst those who are vaccinated. And that is not something we are seeing at the moment,” he said.

    How far into reading it did it take you to realize that was in 2018?

    I knew it was a post right away. You posted it.

    The comparison to 2018 is completely dishonest, given comparative levels of infection, death, chronic disabity, social dislocation and stress on the health care system.

    Anecdotally, the vaccines seem to be failing in the older population

    Hopefully just a bad sample size

    hence perhaps the repeated strong hints that boosters will be needed pretty soon
