Honestly, my biggest fear is another variant or a real mutation.  The fact that we let the UK variant spread as it did after a year of dealing with a pandemic just shows how inept we are at dealing with this.

This week was the first time I ever saw someone wearing a mask in person. One of the benefits of living somewhere that no-one would want to visit

Some of the COVID measures seem more politically than medically motivated at this point both when it comes to lifting measures (opening schools) as well as enacting them (curfew).

They deliberately scared people into compliance instead of increasing the healthcare capacity. This has been well documented in a number of countries.
For some measures there is little to no science to back it up and then there's companies like AstraZeneca using very selective data to boost their product which erodes the trust in the vaccination effort.

Still no government seems to have officially acknowledged that the chances of transmitting the virus through surfaces or outdoors are pretty much non-existent and the biggest risk is poorly ventilated indoor locations.
Also COVID is the only thing that counts when it comes to decision making at this point while 12 months down the line there's certainly other things to consider like mental health, quality of life and yes the economy.

We (or at least the government) seem to be in a sort of perpetual state of crisis and any ideas other than 'LOCKDOWN' are seen as dangerous.

Virologists have moved to a position where most believe this crisis will last a decade and we will have lockdowns for years to come.

Macron just announced a new lockdown for the coming month starting Saturday. Saying that he hopes after this there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
Who's "they?" To what group or groups are you specifically referring?

I can't find the link, but I recall a scientific talk which explained that it's better to be afraid than fearless in a pandemic. Fear is a useful survival response.

Additionally, healthcare capacity has also been increased — it's not an either/or situation as you've presented.

Perpetual fear is untenable and exhausting, and people stop responding to it. We're seeing it now, with spring break and even cherry blossoms in Japan, and the PATHETIC desire to hold the Olympics despite a lack of actual situational change.

It's draconian to force people to wear a mask when you can just build a couple more hospitals instead.

We've stopped with the AZ vaccines again.
Someone died after vaccination.

Also people have to cancel their own appointment for a second shot if they have been infected in the past.
In that case you only need one shot.

By now we have 1 million vaccines in storage and vaccinating at a rate of like 4 per day, tops.
Old people don't understand how to sign up through the apps and shit.  :lol

Yes. We are somewhat fucked. There is a social stigma regarding the virus on top of all the other problems, so the mentality around testing is also… distinguished mentally-challenged? Less effective? Stifled? I’m trying to think of the right word and failing. It’s so frustrating.

I went to the doctor to renew my prescription medicines, and asked how I could speed up my access to the vaccine. He said that there’s no real, solid plan in place for Japan. Right now they are focused on getting the senior citizens vaccinated as they are at high risk. I’m over 50, slightly chubby, and have high blood pressure, so I am at three comorbidity factors, and want to limit my risky situation as well.

My sister has started harping on me to come back to the US and get a vaccination there. This plan completely fails to acknowledge that I am at risk for the entire time I am in-transit, including the three or four airports and four or five flights it will require to reach my mom‘s home.

Indian “double mutation” variant is spreading like wild fire apparently in Nor Cal. Testing is also the lowest it’s been since the start of the pandemic which means we aren’t getting a complete picture as to the real spread.

We're opening up lots of things that can be attended outside like parks, restaurants and such April 21st.
Large group events will be piloted with testing. I think the largest is a park that will allow 5000 people to visit daily.
Curfew will also end.

Finally I'll be able to grab a beer again in the sun and wait for all this to blow over  8)

Nintex, do you actually think the AstraZeneca/Oxford one causes blood clots?
I don't know, but my estimate is that it doesn't and it's just circumstancial because so many old people are vaccinated.
By that logic the vaccine probably causes people to shit their pants too.

I just think that the EU can't hit 70% by the end of the summer and the vaccine passport roll-out will be an utter failure like everything else they've done.
The UK medical officer was obviously send out there on behalf of AZ to keep the stock price from flatlining and to make a witty remark about the EU halting vaccinations on behalf of the Brexiteers.

The root cause of this pandemic is politicians shitting the bed. A straight line from Xi to van der Leyen with Boris and Trump in between.

Oxford is a British university. And it's one of the main vaccines the UK has been using since the start. You don't think the UK wants to make sure that one of the two vaccines they are using that it's safe? They still got a population they want to protect.
Well, I was fucking wrong!

That's just a really dumb take that was going around a few weeks ago.  Things have accelerated a lot since then.  17% has the first dose and it should be close to 50% by the end of the month.

As our vaccination rate moves back into the bottom 5 EU countries our health minister visits the storage location to shockingly discover there are only a few boxes and not the 'millions' he expected.
https://twitter.com/Raounakk/status/1380584885212082186

He asks for his phone to call the people responsible and after his call explains this is a 'good thing' meaning that the vaccines have been transported to vaccination sites.
"Monday the work continues" he said later. Apparently our vaccination effort doesn't do weekends  :dead

Also our government has announced that they longer have or keep an accurate record of the vaccination rate of vulnerable groups.
It is 'too complex' and time consuming to figure out the vaccination rate.  :picard

Because AstraZenica is no longer considered safe they had to cancel 700 appointments for the 'coming months'. Which sort of is an eye opener of how slow this process is going.
Unclear what happens with people who have already received 1 AZ dose. Hospitals are using the media to try and prevent the government from rolling back regulations April 21st.
The plan is to reopen most of the country and hold a number of pilot events for up to 5000 people with quick tests. The cost of this pilot has been estimated at 1 billion.

But money has no meaning anyway

A maskless customer in a Florida Pier 1 store who coughed at another customer last June was sentenced to serve 30 days in jail.

Debra Hunter, who entered the store without wearing a mask, clashed with an unidentified customer when she noticed that the exchange was being recorded by a third customer, Heather Sprague.

“Do you really need this? What do you want to do, post it for you?” Hunter can be heard saying in the video. “I think I’ll get real close to you and cough on you. How about that?”

Hunter then walked toward Sprague and intentionally coughed in her direction, ultimately resulting in Judge James A. Ruth convicting her with second-degree assault.
Quote
Hunter testified that the incident left her and her family “permanently scarred” as the video went viral and has resulted in people treating her family differently.

Speaking of her eldest son, she said: “He was shunned by his classmates, who would boldly ask him and purposefully in the midst of a small crowd, if his mother was that lady in the video.”

“It was like he was the son of the woman who wore the Scarlet Letter,” Hunter continued.

“I often wonder what it would be like if every one of us, as the flawed human beings we are, had their worst moments reduced to a short video for all the world to see and judge,” she added.

Pretty sure Jones said the death rate of the vaccine would be 1/2 not 1/1000000.

This is also the good one since it’s not the ‘gene therapy’ ones.

In fact, you could already visit our country as a tourist anyway. Not like anyone is going to check if you are in quarantaine.
