    Remember when people were figuring out ways to jump the line to get vaccinated and that was the big concern? What a quaint time that was.
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    I took another look and it can happen. There are cases of a breakthrough infection from a confirmed reinfection. In one instance an immunocompromised woman in India was infected three times. An initial infection by the Alpha variant and then reinfected twice more by Delta. Not only was she immunocompromised, she was given steroids to treat her first infection which might have further delayed the development of immunity making her more susceptible to early reinfection. She was then reinfected at home by her reinfected health care worker / caregiver family member.

    Per Worldometer, 165k cases and 2300 deaths yesterday. Aren’t we pretty much back to where we were daily in January?

    I also have friends who work in a school and health care. They are planning to move to Montana to evade the vaccine requirements in Washington.
    Well, employee #3 farted around deciding on the vaccine and was admitted to the Covid ward at the local hospital today. I really feel bad for them but this was totally preventable. I hope nobody else has contracted it from being around them.

    Just had the first "know someone who knew someone vaxxed who died of COVID recently" interaction. Guy who died was in their upper 70s, maybe 80. Not sure but older than the friend whose neighbor it was. So, ya it can happen. I also lock my doors at night even though home invasions are way more rare than COVID infections around here.

    Longtime lurker. ItÂ’s gotten ugly in here. Multiple death threats a day to people. Remember when rog got banned for calling people sheep for following others that got them killed. Now people are wishing people dead every other minute. Calling Eric Clapton an antivaxxer and saying his kid should have died. But he took the vaccine early on, got super sick, hands went numb and thought he would never Play guitar ever again. Cream, traffic, plus the later shit. One of the greatest guitarists ever. HeÂ’s not antivax, shit just fucked him up. ItÂ’s ok to question.
    My wife works in a hospital in nh. Hospital she works in is overflowing. No COVID patients. However there is a bunch of old folks that canÂ’t go home. They canÂ’t take care of themselves. They are taking a ton of beds. Nowhere to send them. The nursing homes are understaffed, itÂ’s a hard job wiping peopleÂ’s ass and comforting peopleÂ’s mom and dad for $12 an hour. The first wave of COVID hit the nursing homes hard, the staff And residents mostly all got COVID and wenT on with their jobs(or died) Instead on thanking them, mandate a vaccine or get fired.That shit ainÂ’t right. You can get antibodies after infection. Is it better then the vaccine? Nobody knows yet.
    ItÂ’s pretty obvious this vaccine isnÂ’t the end of COVID. Maybe with some tweaks it could be. But in the meantime show a little compassion and respect to your fellow human beings. Stop being keyboard warriors, take a step back, take a deep breath, go for a walk in woods. Shred the GNAR.

    Hunter Pepper. Sounds like a GQP soft-drink.

    A teenage city council member in Morgan County, Alabama, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday after railing against mask mandates said he’s now battling coronavirus-related pneumonia in the hospital.

    “I am still shallow in breathing but my oxygen remains okay for now,” Decatur City Councilman Hunter Pepper, 19, wrote on Facebook Thursday. He received a CT scan on Wednesday night that confirmed he has COVID pneumonia, “which is absolutely terrible,” he wrote.

    On Wednesday, Pepper—who’s repeatedly slammed mask mandates and refused to get vaccinated— said that he took two rapid tests and a PCR test for the coronavirus after he started to feel sick on Monday.

    “Well, it has finally happened to me. Unfortunately, this morning I have confirmed two positive [tests] for Covid-19,” Pepper wrote Wednesday on Facebook. Everything In me wants to tell myself it is something different but every way I look it’s ‘Covid this, Covid that’ and it has terrified me and my family.”

    Pepper wrote that he was “terrified” by the way that the media “continues to report on Covid-19 and explains ‘Death’ each time they do,” adding that he has “faith in the lord.”

    “Maybe this will clear up soon and the symptoms of this sickness shall not progress as I can tell you, it feels terrible not to be able to breathe.”

    He later told the Decatur Daily News that he had begun to show a “massive amount of symptoms” of the virus on Wednesday and that his oxygen levels were “holding a little well, and I don’t feel good at all.”

    Pepper’s diagnosis has raised concerns over whether he may have exposed other local officials during a city council work session earlier in the week.

    Prior to taking the vaccine, Clapton says he consumed “alternative data” about the pandemic on YouTube and from the group behind the Great Barrington Declaration.

    Afterwards, Eric Clapton helped make a high production value anti-vax short film disguised as an interview. Despite his protestations of neutrality in the film, he has a long history of abusive behavior, racist partisanship, and conspiracy-mongering. Eric Clapton’s anti-vaxxer hypocrisy is on brand for him.

    Clapton has been on the wrong side of history for a long time. The best thing about Clapton since the 60s is all the music he inspired in the decades since in response to his bigotry.

    Fuck me this shit is sad to witness. Poor kids gonna grow up without a mom because she did her own research.

    For all the losers that call this celebrating death please just fuck off.

    And go tell her kids we have to respect her opinion even if it was built on lies and disinformation because snowflakes are too soft and special to ever be wrong. Flat earthers, Q klux klanners, and pizza pedophile hunters need to have their opinions respected or else their feeling get hurt.

    Fuck me how is society gonna survive? I feel sad for the lied to. I hate the liars.

    Many of us signed petitions and wrote commissioners not to let this happen. It happened. It sucks.

    All of Idaho just entered crisis standards of care. There are not enough beds and providers to treat everyone. The head of the governors task force on covid who is a doctor and is a retired CEO of are largest hospital system says the only way out of this is for more people to get vaccinations. We are one of the lowest vaxxed states.

    A coworker and friend (conservative unvaxxed) has a sister here with a lung condition that is not covid related. She waited two weeks for an ICU bed, that became available in SLC so she was flown there. Her husband is unvaxxed and is scrambling to find a JJ because he has to wait 14 days post vac to enter the hospital to watch his wife probably die. My buddy who has been against vaxxes, scheduled his. He told me after watching his sister wait for two weeks for a bed he couldn’t be part of the problem anymore.
    It's interesting that he was okay being part of the problem before that which is typical of most of the antivax mentality.

    Gotta love how Idaho's way out of this is to not do anything proactive to control the pandemic but instead just suck off the resources of all neighboring states.

    Why are you going to parties in polite company? That's where you run into people like that. I was just at a party in polite company. Thank goodness I don't have any more kids to to get married.

    I say good riddance to the anti-vaxxers. I hope they all get a sharp jab to the arm. A month later I hope another jab hits em in the arm.

    Also, some states and regions are past vaxing their way out of this. They need lockdown measures to stop the spread while they vaccinate. And mandates. Let em whine, get em poked. There's no political winning either way, so let's get on with the whining and public health winning. They'll never thank us, I don't care.

What if being less symptomatic means the surveillance rate for students is lower than rest of the community? Without contract tracing how would anyone know if the schools were the major spreader?

    I'm optimistic about masks working better on kids than adults, and pre-delta/pre-burnout it's believable that that made a big difference. But the evidence that schools are not spreaders of disease seems a little light and is usually presented as "we don't have evidence that it's a problem" which can just mean we aren't willing to look for any.
    Ontario Science Table already did the work. They found positivity rates among students was about the same as their surrounding communities. So, in Toronto positivity was pretty high, but so was positivity among adults around the school. In places with low case counts, schools had very little to no positivity. Their conclusion is that schools, while obviously do contribute in some way to the spread of the virus, aren't a major driving factor. Likely due to cohorts, masking, and other preventative measures. These measures are all still in place, and now we have vaccinated parents.

    So, I'm optimistic but what else am I gonna do just sit on the couch and cry every day? Sick of worrying - gotta be positive I guess.

    I wasn't trying to be alarmist at all, and there's definitely reason to be positive about the possibilities.

    I understand they collected the data, and that's been done in a lot of places with similar conclusions. We hear it here a lot, too: we know schools aren't driving spread because they don't have higher positively or case counts. But I haven't heard whether that's "no significant difference" (which is itself inconclusive, even though it's often cited as if it meant "conclusively identical") or actually done with enough statistical power to detect a small difference. And I'm curious just how big of a difference could reasonably be expected in any case, since students and their parents are part of the community.
