    Smrter people in here can correct me if I got this wrong.
    Somehow I thought Skidog said the initial positive was from a PCR test, but he didn't. Your analysis is probably correct if the first test was antigen.

    Fuaci is in favor of boosters for everyone. Says we have enough vaccine for US and rest of the world (not an either or choice). Says we should not be satisfied with keeping people out of the hospital but should use boosters to keep people from getting sick.

    I’m confused what your point is.

    The only exemption is for reasons outlined by law.
    I'm not seeing the exemptions for congress and their staff. It's an E.O. that includes any entities receiving federal funds. I don't see how that would limit it to the Executive Branch.
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    It’s a separation of powers thing. The Legislative and Judicial branch can’t be told what to do by the executive. IE - the employees of those branches are not Biden’s employees to tell what to do, he doesn’t have the authority.

    The order specifically applies to “executive branch employees”.

    Definitely an improvement, but interesting that state employees still lag the overall state numbers (70% over 12 fully vaccinated and 77% of those between 18 and 64).

    You can blame prison workers in Walla Walla and their abysmal 39% vaccination rate.

    Half of unvaccinated workers say they’d rather quit than get a shot – but real-world data suggest few are following through

    https://theconversation.com/half-of-...through-168447

    Quieter actions
    But while it is easy and cost-free to tell a pollster you’ll quit your job, actually doing so when it means losing a paycheck you and your family may depend upon is another matter.


    And based on a sample of companies that already have vaccine mandates in place, the actual number who do resign rather than get the vaccine is much smaller than the survey data suggest.


    Houston Methodist Hospital, for example, required its 25,000 workers to get a vaccine by June 7. Before the mandate, about 15% of its employees were unvaccinated. By mid-June, that percentage had dropped to 3% and hit 2% by late July. A total of 153 workers were fired or resigned, while another 285 were granted medical or religious exemptions and 332 were allowed to defer it.


    At Jewish Home Family in Rockleigh, New Jersey, only five of its 527 workers quit following its vaccine mandate. Two out of 250 workers left Westminster Village in Bloomington, Illinois, and even in deeply conservative rural Alabama, a state with one of the lowest vaccine uptake rates, Hanceville Nursing & Rehab Center lost only six of its 260 employees.


    Delta Airlines didn’t mandate a shot, but in August it did subject unvaccinated workers to a US$200 per month health insurance surcharge. Yet the airline said fewer than 2% of employees have quit over the policy.


    And at Indiana University Health, the 125 workers who quit are out of 35,800 total employees, or 0.3%.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    It was another example of how the antivaxxers spin bs. POTUS can’t tell legislative and judicial what to do becomes “gets special exemptions”. There is no honest dialogue with these people

    At least it's physical. Most corporate stuff is green screen city.

    MTT's statement seems sub-accurate according to this but I guess anything is possible with small sample sizes (or when you make stuff up).
    They got a name for the winners in the world

    Link? I can’t find anything reporting those numbers.

    I checked and that’s been debunked. The Doctor in the press conference said “vaccinated” when he meant “unvaccinated” and the anti vaccination folks ran with it on social media. Stay off Facebook MTT.

    Even if this is true it doesn't prove the vaccine is ineffective. The majority of people in the hospital are old. Old people have a much higher vaccination % than young people.

    The Australia thing was previously discussed. The Australian Heath minister misspoke and said vaccinated when he meant to say unvaccinated. He corrected himself in the same press conference which social media snippets makes no mention of:



    Jeremy McAnulty misspoke when initially detailing the vaccination status of people in hospital. Dr McAnulty later corrected the record during the same press conference, identifying that everyone in intensive care units (ICUs) in the state due to COVID-19 was unvaccinated – except for one individual who was partially vaccinated.

    The slip-up led to social media users claiming that vaccines are “useless” in preventing hospitalisation.

    People could be in a hospital for a variety of reasons most of which are probably not related to COVID-19. As you point out, it shouldn't be surprising that there are vaccinated people in hospitals. I know that's what you're saying, but thought it needed a little more emphasis.

    You could say most people in hospitals are vaccinated for measles and a guy like MTT would use that to make the case that the measles vaccine isn't effective. It's nonsense.
