COVID-19 Outbreak

I heard there are 7 variants now. Still not sure if the vaccines will help against them or not. Doctors say words like "should and most likely" but who knows?  Sometimes even with a flu shot you still get some version of a flu.

I don't have much faith in humans because we are so full of ourselves and want to do what we want when we want. This weekend, Dallas celebrates St. Paddy's day. Bars are open 100%, so here we go. Covid is smacking it's lips! lol God help us all.

I don't ever think things well be normal like they were, but I think we will always have to be vigilent with our lives. But will we?

I do hope by May wll adults can get a vaccine and then we can concentrate on our children. I do feel some hope, but you know there will be plenty of morons who didn't care before and won't care now.

And like I've said before, this is why we have the covid virus. Humans don't treat ourselves or the earth well. And yes I add myself to that list, but at least I follow the science and try to do wasn't right and don't hurt myself or anyone else.

There are probably hundreds of thousands of variants, but that doesn't mean there is cause for panic. The vaccines are all very effective and can easily be tweaked if need be. I've learned the media loves to run wild with "anti body response is far less" for variant XYZ. Antibody generation does not always directly correlate to neutralizing the virus. 

We're in good shape.

 

My gf also got her first dose today, I am very grateful

Yeah, I agree. Thanks goodness we have these vaccines now. I do feel better and hopefully by May I can get my vaccines too. 

I went to another supermarket today and luckily they still require masks and everyone was wearing one. It's still too soon to drop our guard. 

Unfortunately, the bars in Dallas are open 100% and I'm sure this weekend will be very busy for them. Just hope they try to be safe, but I doubt it. Oh well. All we can do is take  care of ourselves and those we love.

Stay well

There were still over 1800 deaths in the U.S. on Saturday. While that's much better than the 4000 deaths per day a few months ago we still have a long way to go.

I agree. The bars in Dallas are all open 100%. I'm sure tons of people were out. Let's see how the numbers of covid cases are in a month's time. I'm pretty sure they will go way up. 

I think the states could have waited another few months and hopefully most people will be vaccinated. Is it worth moving ahead when it's still not safe? I don't think so.

I would really like to hear @SoulMonster's input about this. Or anyone else's who can shed some light on this. Here in Belgium they say that there are less blood clots in non-vaccinated people than in the Astra Zeneca vaccinated population. Of course people will still be getting blood clots and die, regardless of the vaccine. Like our minister said: If someone drinks a glass of water and dies the day after, will we blame the water? That seems so logical, so why stop the vaccination if vaccinated people get less blood clots than the overall population?

It makes me wonder if we're not being told something. Or why do so many countries temporarily stop using AZ? Is this some witch hunt on Astra Zeneca because they don't deliver as much as they promised? Is it some kind of powerplay to do with Britain supposedly hoarding vaccines? I don't get it at all. I'm sure people have gotten blood clots after being vaccinated with Pfizer, so why only Astra Zeneca now? If it's really 30 people out of millions in the EU? Britain has vaccinated so many with Astra Zeneca, and yet there seems to be no problem at all there.

Apparently, there might have been an unusual amount of people having blood clots among those vaccinated with the AZ vaccines, at least in Denmark. It could be coincidental or it could be an unknown side effect that for some reason went undetected in the clinical trials. Most likely it is a statistical fluke. Nevertheless, some countries have halted administration of the AZ vaccine while this is being investigated.

Texas beaches in Galveston were full this weekend. Of course, no masks were worn by most beach goers.  Bars were full too.

The news interviewed some people. Most weren't worried. Dummies. Others wore masks when they shopped around the streets.

I'm sure Florida had a busy weekend too. This week is spring break in many states.  Let's see how fast the covid numbers go up again.

Dallas is now giving the vaccine to anyone over 50 years old.

My city has left over vaccines and they are giving it to the school district so I'm hoping all the teachers can be vaccinated before school is back next Monday. Also some areas where people have trouble getting to a vaccine site or can't sign up were giving bus transportation to vaccine sites today for their shots. 

It seems Texas is doing a great job of getting as many people vaccinated as they can.

There were 572 deaths in the U.S. on Sunday, down from over 1800 on Saturday. That's definitely trending in the right direction. 

Well, this week was spring break and the beaches were packed. No masks here in Texas anymore. And the bars were packed too. Let's see in the next few weeks how the numbers are then?

Norway registered its highest number of new cases today. We have also closed down the borders with few exceptions meaning that an intern that was supposed to come join my company can't travel here. 

I wish the vaccination could go a bit faster. The government are blaming the slow trickle of vaccines coming to Norway, but I believe the logistics of simply vaccinating people is not as efficient as it should be, with lots of administrative stuff resulting a sluggish process. Anyway, despite the record numbers today, with vaccination underway we are approaching an end, of sorts.

You know we're living in the end times when Boris Johnson of all fucking people is showing the world how it should be done. :lol:

Good article on why Europe lags the developed world (though Canada isn’t far off, mostly because we have no domestic production capacity):

Did you ask which vaccine you received? I'm due mine a week today, I probably should have stayed clear of this thread though, ha!

Doctors on CNN were talking about how humans are invading animal habitats more and more and interacting with animals that carry viruses and other diseases.

I believe this to be true, but also because we don't respect these places nor are we caring for the earth this is why we have covid and probably will continue to have more and more diseases in the future. 

Humans want what they want and don't respect the earth as we should. Look at the oceans and the land and the forests.  This is our planet yet so many of us don't seem to give a shit and then bitch and moan when we get a virus and won't wear a mask.

And now so many Americans don't trust the government giving out vaccines. One person said they think it contains a tracker so the government knows where you are and what you're doing? if you have nothing to hide what the fuck should you care?

One woman lost two members of her family to covid, but won't get the vaccine. As long as people think this way and don't get the vaccine, this virus will continue to thrive and change and most likely become resistant to the vaccines we have now.

Good luck! And wanna bet these freaks won't get the virus, but will give it to others. What a bitch!

I got moderna. That's what most people have gotten in Texas and most states.

Take whatever they have. It will help keep you from getting the virus.
