COVID-19 Outbreak

So sick of all of them having an opinion and still nothing changes.

Things don't change because someone has an opinion ;). Things change when someone figurs out the structure of the virus, someone develops a vaccine based on this information, someone tests this novel vaccines for efficacy and side effects, someone approves this vaccine for use, and it is being used on people. And this process is happening. Just relax for once. It will still get darker before it starts getting lighter - but we will see the sun again. And I am not only talking about winter season in Norway.

What the fuck do they know? If I'm looking for advice from a rock band on how viruses are transmitted I will ask Queen thank you very much.

The mother of my aunt just died from covid19 in the Netherlands. No funeral and she can't go there. This situation is so fucked up.

Hey ya'll, first time posting here. Just wanted to pass along that 3 residents of the nursing home I work at, which I won't name cause of HIPPA, tested positive the morning. As the head charge nurse said at our impromptu meeting said " we have been breached" Not only that but the woman who let people in and out of the building (and works the kitchen) tested positive this past Saturday.

Why this is scary to me is that I work housekeeping and while I was waiting for someone to open the office door so I could get my hall keys, I hung out with her and others for almost four hours.

We have to wear masks all of the time. Even if we go out for a cigarette break, we have to come back in, get our temperatures, and don a new mask. And they are not comfortable. They will cut into your nose. They look like painter's masks if you were spray painting.

All staff has to take a COVID test on Monday & Wednesday. Doesn't matter if you are off that day, you have to make a special trip for it.

Another thing that has to be done, as part of housekeeping, is we have to disinfect those rooms where people have tested positive. That means we have to don layers of PPE gear, a special type of disinfectant to clean, and do what is called  a "deep clean" This is where you have to move all of the furniture around and sweep/mop behind everything. Any clothing left behind has to be removed and sent to soiled linen. Any type of raised port-a-potty has to be removed to outside. All closets and anything with a drawer has to be wiped down. Ya know, all of that fun shit.

I'm scared to death right now because I'm literally having to put my life on the line. And what is so shitty is, I will receive no hazard pay. I know the amount of money received from each resident is at least 5 thousand dollars so you know somebody is pocketing it. A kickback if you will. I get a brand spanking 8 bucks an hour for this shit.

Anyways, just thought I'd share this. I'm out. Take care everyone.

Even with a vaccine, still so many people are sick and dying. This virus doesn't seem to be slowing down and if it keeps changing how will we continue to deal with it?

Well I don't know anyone who has gotten the vaccine as yet. People have signed up online and nothing yet. I know of a few nurses and doctors and I see older people on the news, but any friends or family have not gotten their first shot as yet.

I got the vaccine! I posted about it in here. I get my second shot on 2/1. My brother in San Antonio also got his and my other brother who works for the school district got his too...we are quite fortunate. But now I'm hoping my father in Mexico can get his soon and my mom in CO. The vaccine rollout under Trump has been very very slow and I feel it will improve under Bidens plan.  Fingers crossed.

is it allowed to refer to the new strain as the "british" virus I wonder?

Wouldn't that be stigmatising, the same way as there was an outrcy over the initial chinese variant?

Surely the British virus is herpes?

I don't care what it is called as long as @DieselDaisy pays punitive damages for lives lost from it.

Maybe he got corona, for real. Or spending all his time on Parler, or whatever equivalent has popped up.

I miss @Len Cnut, though.

We can call it "the pasty white death with bad teeth".

Dies? I assume he is out fishing. 

Politics? Nah, it is dying down now. The big orange blob is finally setting and we can go back to discussing Guns N' Roses again.

Yeah, I've logged in a few times but I realized just now that I haven't posted anything since Christmas. With soon getting kicked out and the US politics being the only real active thread on here (which I personally don't give a shit about), this place has become rather dull.

Oh... this is the covid thread... our national lockdown has been extended and we might get a curfew as well... it's only getting worse : /

Couldn't give a fuck mate. Quite proud ours is better than the Chinese one actually.

In a few years someone will make a Covid Top Trumps.

Edit- Sorry didn't mean to quote Jabberwocky I was referring to action. I most certainly DO give a fuck about your situation. Take care.

So far in the US 1500 have died from covid. Still not getting the vaccines out quick enough and it's terrible how unorganized the whole thing is.

Biden said he wants all the vaccines sent out to the states and given to anyone who wants a shot. Meanwhile, I haven't heard of anywhere in my city where I can get the shot. None of the doctors can store it or have it. Not even Walmart yet.

In a few weeks Johnson and Johnson will have a vaccine that only takes 1 shot. Hope it works.

Everyday on yahoo.om Dr. Fauci has something bad to say about the vaccines and other shit. Damn, he annoys the hell out of me. Can't wait until this virus is under control so these doctors can go away.

How is the rest of the world doing giving out the vaccines?

We all need to get this virus under control or it'll be here for a very long time.

Nothing about the covid vaccine coming to my area yet.

Biden said he would send all the vaccines out. I also heard that the second round of vaccines were supposed to be ready to go, but they are gone now too.

What happens to the people who have gotten their first shot and don't get the second shot on time?  Guess no one is worried about that.

At the rate this is going, this year will be fucked up too.

Does anyone really know if China's vaccine is working? Or Russia's. No one seems to be telling about those countries. Is anyone sharing with North Korea or Iran?
