Frightening...

P.s re the households thing!!!!! How idiotic... and gyms and cinemas should have been closed as well.



Edit , I saw this earlier this morning.

According to a Times of Malta exercise, the country could expect to achieve herd immunity by mid-October if the current COVID-19 vaccination rate is kept up.

And for Malta to meet the end-of-summer target set by the EU, the speed at which the daily number of jabs is being administered needs to be kicked up a notch to reach 2,569 doses per day. 

Also... younger people are perishing now

People have become more selfish than ever, and this is also being reflected in how Govts are dealing with the distribution of vaccines...

Vide what Italy did to Australia , what Germany and the US tried to do late last year
Israel to Palestine...
Or how Iraq have just started to receive the vaccines just now.

And also we shall not forget the hijack of equipment like protective gears and masks by certain countries in order to keep them for themselves...

Not strange as such... but I thought it would change humanity more than it did.

Think back to a year ago. People DID come closer, I think. Remember singing in balconies? People cheering their neighbours up... beautiful speeches by people like the pope reminding us we will hug each other again... So many people saying we will never take so and so for granted again...

We’ve forgotten all that now. Maybe it’s simply fatigue. I think it’s more likely that it was an inevitable part of resuming life, when countries started opening up. It’s a shame, I think to some extent we will always keep remembering the age of Covid but I don’t think we will be remembered as the Covid generation, as I did a year ago.

There's one thing I'm not understanding. They're saying that vaccines have little to no effect on transmission of the virus, but rather on the severity of the symptoms. Why is it being hailed as the bringer of herd immunity then?

What? Pretty sure the early scientific evidence suggests that transmission IS reduced.

If 80-90% of the population just get a cold it’s not much different than herd immunity...

Not really. They're not even sure if there's any effect yet, let alone on how big. This is from 3 days ago: https://www.healthline.com/health-news/ ... at-we-know

Glass half empty? We’re not sure, yes, it’s too early for that too, but the article itself does say (as many others have said) that the suggestion is that they do indeed reduce transmission.

WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus praised the first full week of the Covax roll-out, but said wealthy countries were nonetheless still leaving others behind in the vaccination rush.

Within Africa, Angola, the DR Congo, The Gambia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sudan and Uganda have now received their first doses through Covax.

Elsewhere, Cambodia, Colombia, India, Moldova, the Philippines and South Korea have also taken deliveries.

Don't waste the hope of vaccines, warns WHO [source]


But the World Health Organisation voiced fears that further waves of the coronavirus pandemic could be on the way if people think the roll-out of vaccines around the globe means the crisis is over.

"I really am very concerned that... we think we're through this. We're not," WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan told a press conference.

"And countries are going to lurch back into third and fourth surges if we're not careful.

Schools open in England tomorrow. To all kids, all day, every day. Watch those cases rise once more...

Teachers understandably are not happy, especially as they have not been offered vaccinations before having to return

And before you know it another variant will appear, one even more infectious and likely to escape the vaccine :twisted:
