My city recorded one case of the UK variant in a quarantine hotel cleaner. She was circulating in the community from 2 January for five days while infectious.

We just started a three-day lockdown to allow contact tracing to catch up. Hope they get this under control quickly. I don't really fancy going back to restricted movements again. We've had relatively restriction-free lives and no community transmission for more than three months and for most of the pandemic really.

It's a big problem. something like 20-25% of the nursing force is expected to quit or pursue a different career "after this is over" and while there's a reported surge in people wanting to become nurses or doctors they're a ways off and I don't doubt many of them have been turned off after this episode.

I'd expect to see many nurses go full Rorschak after this, where people whine "Save us," and they say, "No." Having the virus-denier shitbirds out there, being childish and willingly risking everyone's lives, definitively putting their own convenience before others' health, and ultimately overwhelming the caregivers' capacity? Fuck you. You made your bed. Lie in it.

I'm coldhearted about this, likely, but rather than confirming heartbeat to prioritized if they can be transported to the hospital, do a quick Facebook check, and see if they've been a virus denier or even willfully ignoring precautions. Let that be the metric.

Yeah, I've had so many providers tell me that they're having a difficult time and have totally lost faith in the populations they serve. Even those that support the doctors. I've seen data analysts just get up and quit because they were handed a person they had to contact trace for and they're like "This person had COVID and went to a party with 80 people and of those 4 others actively had COVID and knew it too?" And they just got up and left.

Eight new cases of the UK variant, though the SA one may be worse:

The whole conference has been pretty worrying.  If Ford does nothing because he floated the idea of curfews and it got shot down, I'll be very disappointed.

Government is very concerned about th British virus.
Curfew might be implemented as well, no final decision on that yet.

Pure naval gazing speculation here but itís scary how this is lining up similarly to the Spanish Flu. A more contagious mutation in its second year that could potentially send deaths soaring.

Also they kept saying everyone younger than 21 had nothing to worry about and now it turns out infection rates are soaring among younger people.

Again nobody could've predicted that.

Got my first vaccine today. It was easily the least painful injection I've ever gotten. It barely registers at all, but one of the more immediate muscle pain injections I've gotten in recent memory. No other symptoms or anything yet, just a sore as hell arm.

We have been on the precipice. At least here. We've been between 85-97% capacity regularly. We're close anything further goes wrong and we're in a bad spot. Current projections are that we'll be here til about April where, hopefully, it'll start going down again.

Seeing the modelling of the UK variant today actually scared me and I think I haven't really been worried about the future since like April.  I wish Canada could be doing the amount of vaccinations the US is doing right now.

I've seen so many obituaries for friends of friends and family friends in the last week or two in So Cal it's crazy & scary af. Three deaths this week. One was a family friend in their late 60s w/cancer, another was the daughter of a family friend in her 40s who had a stroke and then died of blood poisoning, another was a friend who runs a ramen restaurant's co-worker who had a heart attack at 25 while sick with covid.

Also the county health website for my county is very informative about groups currently vaccinating and ETA for upcoming groups. It has February down as ETA for my group (16-64 with health issues) and my parents group (65-74). I don't know how accurate it is given all the news about the terribly slow rollout that sucks everywhere, but I'm hoping they know how they're getting their info from and I can really get a first shot vaccine by the end of February and be vaccinated by the end of March.

I mean that's all of So Cal in general.

But yeah friends in my circle who are 20-35 are still gathering in small gatherings without masks every few weeks and putting up photos on social media. None of them have officially gotten Covid, but wouldn't be surprised if some of them were asymptomatic and got it at some point.

Actually nm on the grouping for vaccines. CA and OC changed their policy and are immediately vaccinating anyone 65 and over starting tomorrow? So my parents might get in pretty soon.

No change for the 16-64 w/health conditions group yet though. Which is fine.


Also I was looking on the news and saw fear mongering stuff about the new mutation in south africa that is everywhere already that beats some of the antibodies created by vaccines -_- Definitely a little worried about this. Was hoping that vaccines would be the endgame and the world can move on once enough people are vaccinated. This could fuck up things immensely.

Oh god, our head of disease control issued another statement after his previous zingers such as 'Masks are completely useless' and 'people party in small groups' as well as 'care workers are poorly educated thus increasing the spread'.

He now says kids aren't in any danger and schools can just re-open.  :doge
