I got a vaccine appointment for Saturday. Feels like I scored a Troubadour ticket from 2016 lol

Good for you! 

with this snow the vaccines might be put on hold for a bit. Snow has come to Texas and many people are not happy! I love it. It looks so pretty, but not driving at all today.

I read in today's paper that the companies are working on a vaccine for kids 6 to 17. I hope it gets approved. I want my daughter to be vaccinated soon too.

That is sad. Everyone needs to get vaccinated so we can slow down the virus. it's not going anywhere and we all need to get it.

I saw a parade in Rio with people without masks holding their dogs. Not good since Brazil has the mutant virus now. what is wrong with people?

Many scientists has been hard work to get one vaccine, and has such irresponsible people. It is a sin.

This is a disgrace and hopefully leads to the end of Cuomo's political ambitions.

Democrats wonder why Republicans who have nothing to offer constituents need to only look at the shit jobs both Cuomo and Newsom have done in their respective states.

It shouldn't be this hard.  Just competently execute a scientifically backed strategy and be transparent.  Adjust to the situation and provide clear and consistent communications when changes are needed.  And avoid political considerations, even in the face of terrible news.

Apparently Cuomo's administration found much of this too difficult.  At least they were trying, unlike the Trump administration, so there's that.  But the follow through and communication has been really bad.

I've been analyzing the new infection statistics and if the U.S. (and rest of the world, to an extent) continues at this pace, we should see drastic reductions in new infection rates by the end of March and by the end of April, new infection rates should be down to levels not seen since the beginning of 2020.

The U.S. is already down over 60% in new infection rates since its peak in mid January.  60 million people have been vaccinated plus another 28 million or so infected.  That's close to 100 million people that have (at least) some form of resistance to the virus; meaning that true herd immunity should already be "working" to an extent.  And true herd immunity works exponentially, meaning the drop in new infections should come rapidly.  

This is an educated guess on my part (done by statistical research) but if I'm correct, we should be almost out of this by the end of April.  We shall see.   :)

Infections are down because the threshold was significantly reduced on inauguration day.

Actually, new infection rates were at their all-time peak around inauguration day.  The lower rate of new infections is  directly correlated to the amount of people vaccinated; combined with the amount of people "already infected".  The lower rate of infections is showing that "herd immunity" is working.

Well, since Texas had no power or cable last week, I did forget about covid for a few days.  Infection and hospitals numbers are down here, but Texas has a lot of people getting their covid shots. My parents get their second shot in two weeks. Hopefully, in a few months everyone will get at least one shot and make the "herd" immunity.

Hope all of you are doing well and will get the covid vaccines soon too.

Any evidence for this? 

Pretty sure that it's a reference to the conspiracy theory by certain far-right extremists that think the virus would "magically disappear" soon after Biden was elected.  Basically, the virus was a conspiracy to hurt the economy and Trump's re-election chances.  And apparently it wasn't enough since it took  "massive voter fraud" in order for Biden to win.  Smh. :facepalm:

Felt so bad for everybody in Texas. 

What did you and your family do for heat? Glad your power is back on!

Are you suggesting that the who and cdc didn't change the threshold of what a positive test is?

It only took the WHO 10 months to realize that the PCR test is deeply flawed.

Do you wear 2 mask when you leave your house for "essential" items?

Edit- it is now safe to wear a wet face mask because it was reported in a study ūüėĄ

If you are correct that "infections are down" because of a shift in how test results are interpreted which was announced on January 20 (inauguration day), then we would expect to see a break in graph over number of cases on that specific date. No such break is obvious when looking on data for USA or Canada. In fact, the fall in cases started well before January 20 and there is no visible change on inauguration day.  This suggests that you are incorrect.

What did you and your family do for heat? Glad your power is back on! 

We had to wear a lot of clothes. Even the heaters were electric and my house and my parents are all electric. Due to the cold we didn't lose any food but had to eat sandwiches and fruit. Could not cook anything. Some cities in Texas are still without electricity and Texas is on one grid.  I'm glad it's over, but I know so many people are still without heat and some homes had water damage due to pipes bursting. My parents had to wait 3 days for a plumber to come and fix their shower and toilets. We had to buy tons of bottled water for toilets and wash. Once the power came on Thursday then we could heat the water.

Never have we experienced anything like this. You don't realize once you lose your heat and it goes down to 0 degrees how damn cold you can be. We mostly stayed in bed to be warm. Thanks for asking. This week Texas temps are in the 60's. The snow is all melted. You'd never know we had two snow storms back to back.

Some moron on CNN said the virus would be gone by April! I just laughed and laughed. This virus might show down, but it'll be here for a long time to come.

Best thing doctors are saying is still do what we've been doing and by the end of July anyone who wants a vaccine can get one and I suggest everyone gets one. This will be a yearly thing just like the flu shots and all the other vaccines we have. Better to be safe than sorry.

If the concerts turn into riots or protests we can ignore COVID restrictions. 

I have two concerts this year. Motley Crue in August and KISS in October. Not sure I'll be attending either one. I still don't think being in a crowd of thousands will be safe even through the end of this year. And in normal times any rock concerts is full of nut jobs, hate to say it, but when they drink they get super stupid. Wish Texas would make pot legal. Rather deal with those fans than drunks.
