Re: A Lab Origin for SARS-CoV-2
The longer we go without finding the natural origin the more likely some other origin becomes.

I actually think you have that backwards.

The longer we go without finding credible evidence for the lab leak hypothesis, the more likely that the natural origin is the correct one.

Tracking down the natural origin is notoriously difficult, in comparison with finding evidence of malfeasance.

Re: How Effective Are the Vaccines?
The situation isn't great around Chicago. But it isn't real bad either. I don't think there's a hospital overcrowding issue. I'm not sure about Wisconsin.

Re: This may persuade Americans to get vaccinated
$200 per month (the Delta Airlines charge) does make for a strong incentive. But some people are very stubborn. And some of those will file law suits against Delta.

Doesn't anyone remember 30 years or so ago when doctors started prescribing antibiotics less because the overuse of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistant bacteria?

Vaccines and antibiotics are very different things. You cannot generalize from the one to the other.

Re: Oh Crap...
Masks and other personal protective equipment were in short supply 2 years ago for the general population as well as healthcare workers.

This time around, anti-mask idiots are plentiful.

Re: The Covid Reality Hasn't Changed
YES, YOU SHOULD CANCEL YOUR HOLIDAY PLANS!!!!!

My plans, all along, were to stay here and not go anywhere.

I'm not cancelling those plans.

Re: Me COVID and Vax
Why should our fundamental rights be attacked by not being able to work or go places?

Your fundamental rights are not being attacked.

Why should we be punished when we've done nothing wrong?

You are not being punished.

You have made choices, and those choices have consequences.

Choices always have consequences.

If you don't like the consequences, then make different choices.

Re: "We took the risk now everyone else has to"
Go vax yourselves and leave us alone cos we aren't harming anyone.

Fair enough.

But in order for you to not harm anyone, you must isolate yourself. That's a consequence of your choice.

The degradation of basic morals is astounding.

Try applying that to yourself.

Re: Ebola?
I wonder how the world will respond the next time there is an Ebola outbreak or some other really deadly disease?

The anti-mask anti-quarantine people will be demanding quarantine. And the anti-vax people will be demanding a vaccine.

Consistency is not their strong point.
