    Was on a Brit ski forum reading about logistics of travel to the Alps, and some guy was going on about how the wearing of masks (and by implication, public hygiene like cleaning door handles occasionally in public areas) was a bad thing long term because as we saw with the lack of ‘Flu last winter, viruses wouldn’t propagate as much and thus our immune systems over time would become weak due to underutilization.

    My view is that none of these measures work 100%, so reducing the number of contagions being passed around doesn’t mean our immune systems are never used….just means the use would be less frequent. Meanwhile the contagions would have less opportunity to mutate into more virulent strains.

    With so many elderly dying of pneumonia historically, my dentistry background suggests that life expectancies would increase. ?

    My 9 year old is booked for Tuesday. Stoked since there's quite a few cases in the schools.

    My sister on the other hand has no plans to vaccinate her boys. For.... reasons?

    Question for the collective: I participated in the Novavax clinical trial out of a sense of civic responsibility. I received a saline injection in January and then the actual vaccine in April (double blind, but it was dead obvious when I got the actual shot). Now I need to travel abroad, but Novavax isn't recognized by anyone as an actual vaccine. I need an actual official vaccination card, which I won't be able to get from Novavax until after my travel window (January).

    Am I gonna die if I just drop out of the study and get two rounds of Pfizer? Novavax is a protein based vaccine, which is different than the other mRNA vaccines.

    I think I'm just gonna YOLO it and go for it.

    There has been high profile cases like the one in Hope Rollies restaurant being shutdown on the news. I was a member of an anti passport FB group which was easy to join so it would be pretty easy to find out who is not enforcing the passport.

    There is a FB group that is compiling a listing for the whole prov of businesses doing masking and passports. You can see hot spots of community non compliance. They are even digging on freedom FB and Apps, very through, I'd say that 50% of the gyms are not checking passports and roughly 10% of pubs and restaurants .

    hotspots of anti
    Abbotsford
    Aldergrove
    Blind Bay - very hot
    Burns lake
    Campbell river
    Castlegar
    Chilliwack
    Creston very hot
    Dawnson Creek pretty
    Fort Saint John
    Houston

    NYT -JOHANNESBURG — Scientists in South Africa identified on Thursday a concerning new variant of the coronavirus, whose mutations mark a “big jump in evolution” that is driving a spike in new cases. Hours later, Britain banned flights from six southern African nations citing the variant.
    In the past two days, scientists detected the B1.1.529 variant after observing an increase in infections in South Africa’s economic hub surrounding Johannesburg. So far, 22 positive cases have been identified in the country, according to South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases. One case has been detected in Hong Kong from someone who had traveled from South Africa. No cases have been detected yet in Britain.

    QAnon's 'Queen of Canada' Calls for Followers to 'Kill' People Vaccinating Children

    “Shoot to kill anyone who tries to inject Children under the age of 19 years old with Coronavirus19 vaccines/ bioweapons or any other Vaccines,” she wrote. “This order is effective immediately.”

    Didulo has made separate pages to vet prospective members of her Canadian and U.S. duck-hunting teams to help with her mission. The Canadian group currently has just over 100 members, including the man who posted the images of the firearms. Inside the chatroom one of the duck hunters shared information about a specific vaccine popup in an Ontario mall “specifically targeting young children.”

    “It’s time to react now,” replied one person. “Hurry up and wait is no longer the thing to say.”

    Her followers are pledging their support to their Queen’s initiative. “A few duck hunters coming in can stay with me… I’m ready… all my hunting gear is ready… let’s roll,” wrote one in the public chat and posted a picture of firearms strewn across a table.

    N of 1, but I followed a J&J shot with 2 full dose Modernas and am still here. 2nd Moderna laid me out for 4 days, but since I was going all cowboy I couldn't get just the booster-size dose. Now I have 2 CDC cards.

    Moar vax=moar better, right?

    They do. Apparently they also have better writing skills.

    A similar group with a similar message in the US would just be some Twitter rant someone else happened to film and post.

    What I am gathering is it’s very new and still sorting things out as to transmission, vaccine resistance and severity. Bunch of European nations are stopping folks coming in from parts of Africa. You probably knew this, but going to take a bit to sort it out.

    The two questions I have are: how transmissible and how susceptible to existing vaccines?

    Well, that's not really fair. It's not as though vaccines were so available in the shantytown ghettos of Johannesburg anyway, where this seems to be originating from.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.
