    Social distancing will need to remain in place for another year even if
    Boris Johnson's roadmap out of lockdown goes to plan, the Government's
    top scientific advisers warned today.

    Senior SAGE sources said that while the vaccines prevent the vast
    majority of people from falling ill and dying from coronavirus, they
    'are not good enough' to see all curbs lifted 'without a big epidemic'.

    All legal limits on social contact were to be abolished by June 21 as
    part of the final stage of the Prime Minister's four-step route out of
    the crisis. It was hoped that festivals, sports events and nightclubs
    would reopen and that families and friends could reunite in large
    numbers after that date for the first time since winter 2020.

    However, No10's experts claimed today that 'baseline measures',
    including some form of social distancing and masks, would need to remain >>> in place until this time next year. They said they are 'reasonably
    confident' that Covid will be manageable by then.

    The AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines reduce Covid deaths by about 90 per
    cent, but there are fears high infection rates could see the virus spill >>> into the small number of vulnerable people who haven't been jabbed or
    for whom the vaccines don't work.

    Despite the pessimistic comments, Mr Johnson announced tonight the
    country is on track for the second stage of his lockdown easing plans on >>> April 12, which will see shops, gyms, hairdressers and beer gardens
    reopen again.

    Speaking at a Downing Street COVID news briefing, the Prime Minister
    said: 'We see nothing in our present data that makes us think that we'll >>> have to deviate from the roadmap.' Cases and deaths are their lowest
    levels in six months and more than half of the adult population has been >>> vaccinated with at least one dose of the jabs.

    Papers released by SAGE today show the expert group is confident next
    week's lockdown-easing measures will not pile pressure on the NHS, even
    if there is a slight uptick in infections, because of the success of the >>> jab rollout.

    But the advisory panel is less optimistic about future stages of the
    roadmap, adding that it is 'highly likely that there will be a further
    resurgence in hospitalisations and deaths'.

    They said the reopening of pubs, cinemas and indoor hospitality - due to >>> happen on May 17 - could be delayed if vaccine uptake in the under-50s
    dips below 85 per cent.

    Modelling by Warwick University, Imperial College London and the London
    School of Hygiene and Tropical medicine (LSHTM) warned of a late summer
    surge after 'freedom day' in June which could rival levels seen this
    January when hospitals were nearly overwhelmed.

    In a series of SAGE files published today, the SPI-M subgroup warned of
    a potential third wave as the country unlocks further later in the year. >>>
    It said: 'It is highly likely that there will be a further resurgence in >>> hospitalisations and deaths after the later steps of the roadmap. The
    scale, shape, and timing of any resurgence remain highly uncertain.

    'In most scenarios modelled any peak is smaller than the wave seen in
    January 2021 however scenarios with little transmission reduction after
    Step 4 or with pessimistic but plausible vaccine efficacy assumptions
    can result in resurgences in hospitalisations of a similar scale to
    January 2021.'

    Warwick University modelling, which feeds into SPI-M's assumptions
    submitted to SAGE, warned that hospitals could peak at around 10,000 in
    the autumn. For comparison, there were 35,000 daily admissions at the
    peak in January.

    What will Boris Johnson announce at today's 5pm press conference?
    The next step of easing lockdown will go ahead as planned: The PM is
    expected to confirm that non-essential shops, gyms, hairdressers and
    libraries will reopen from April 12 while pubs and restaurants will be
    allowed to serve customers outdoors.

    A mass-testing scheme: Everyone in England will be promised two rapid
    lateral flow tests every week, starting from April 9, in a bid to cut
    the chain of transmission as lockdown rules are loosened.

    Vaccine passports: The PM will unveil the initial findings of a
    Whitehall review into the potential use of 'Covid status certification'. >>> The documents are likely to combine vaccination, testing and immunity
    data and could be used to determine access to large-scale events. It is
    unclear whether they could be used at pubs.

    Foreign travel: A traffic light system will be unveiled by Mr Johnson
    which will pave the way for non-essential international travel to
    resume. Countries will be rated either green, amber or red based on
    criteria like vaccination levels and infection numbers. Travel from
    green countries will not require a quarantine period. The earliest
    foreign holidays could resume is May 17.


    However, worst-case scenario forecasting by researchers from the London
    School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine - which presumes dips in vaccine
    uptake and efficacy - could see admissions back up to around 30,000.

    LSHTM says this would only be the case if two doses of AstraZeneca
    provided just 31 per cent effectiveness against transmission and 85 per
    cent against severe disease.

    Real-world analysis by the Government shows the AZ vaccine reduces about >>> 60 to 70 per cent of transmission and 90 per cent of severe cases. The
    same is true for the Pfizer jab.

    The success of the vaccine rollout means SAGE is not necessarily worried >>> about a rising R reproduction number or an uptick in cases - so long as
    hospital admissions and deaths stay low.

    But Government scientists will be concerned if the R rises to above 1.5
    or if incidence rates provided by the Office for National Statistics
    start to double every fortnight.

    SAGE sources said this would indicate the virus is spiralling and drive
    up the risk of vulnerable people not protected by the vaccines being
    affected.

    It comes as Britain's daily Covid cases were down 40 per cent today on
    last week while deaths have risen slightly, official figures revealed.

    Department of Health officials posted another 2,762 positive tests and
    26 laboratory-confirmed fatalities. For comparison, 4,654 infections and >>> 23 deaths were recorded last Monday.

    Day-to-day figures fluctuate, however, and the overall trend is still
    hurtling downwards thanks to lockdowns and the UK's successful vaccine
    roll-out, which has now seen almost 31.6million Britons get jabbed.

    Both infections and deaths figures over Easter are expected to be lower
    because of incomplete data and a longer-than-usual reporting lag due to
    the four-day bank holiday weekend.

    Meanwhile, travel chiefs fear a summer holiday booking 'fiasco' as Boris >>> Johnson unveils a new traffic light system to allow international trips
    to resume.

    The Prime Minister's initiative will allow Britons to go on summer
    holidays to countries with high vaccination rates.

    The system will see destinations rated as red, amber and green using
    criteria including the percentage of the population that has been
    vaccinated, the rate of infection, any emerging variants and the
    country's access to reliable data and genomic sequencing.

    The criteria could result in European countries like France and Italy
    being ruled out of bounds for British holidaymakers as parts of the EU
    suffer spikes in cases and the bloc's vaccination drive continues to stall. >>>
    Industry bosses today warned they 'cannot go through the fiasco of
    cancelling bookings because a system has been ill thought through' as
    they highlighted the risk for potential customer 'confusion'.

    At a press conference this evening, the Prime Minister will confirm the
    next stage of the release from lockdown is on schedule – with shops,
    gyms and hairdressers allowed to reopen from next week +5

    gyms and hairdressers allowed to reopen from next week

    They also warned that many European nations now face a race against time >>> to reduce infection rates and boost vaccination levels so they can make
    it onto the green list before the summer season.

    Under the Government's scheme, sunseekers returning from countries in
    the green category will not have to isolate, although they will need to
    have tests before and after they fly.

    Those coming back from red list countries would have to quarantine in a
    hotel for ten days, while arrivals from amber destinations will have to
    isolate at home.

    The Prime Minister will use a Downing Street press conference this
    afternoon to re-affirm May 17 will be the earliest that foreign holidays >>> can resume and the new system comes into effect. But he will say he is
    unable to advise yet whether any countries will be classed as green on
    this date.

    The traffic light scheme announcement came as the PM faces a growing
    Tory revolt over the potential rollout of domestic vaccine passports.

    `Britain's daily Covid cases fall by 40% in a week with 2,762 infections >>> - while deaths are up slightly to 26
    Britain's daily Covid cases were down 40 per cent today on last week
    while deaths have risen slightly, official figures revealed.

    Department of Health officials posted another 2,762 positive tests and
    26 laboratory-confirmed fatalities. For comparison, 4,654 infections and >>> 23 deaths were recorded last Monday.

    because of incomplete data and a longer-than-usual reporting lag due to
    the four-day bank holiday weekend.


    Many Conservative MPs support using the documents for international
    travel but they oppose using them for day-to-day life, with Mr Johnson
    targeting a domestic rollout of some sort by June 21.

    Mr Johnson is expected to offer the House of Commons a vote on the
    issue, in a move which could risk a damaging defeat, with Labour
    continuing to express concerns about the documents and increasing
    numbers of Tory backbenchers opposed to them.

    Health Minister Edward Argar today said an increase in cases in Europe
    showed why the UK must 'get this right' on travel rules in order to
    avoid importing potentially vaccine-busting variants of the disease.

    He told BBC Breakfast: 'We are seeing many of our friends in Europe
    seeing an increase in infections. That is one of the reasons why we have >>> to be very careful that as we see an increase across the world in
    infections that we get this right because one of the things we don't
    want to see – and just as the vaccination programme is working so well – >>> is getting new variants or risking new variants getting imported into
    this country.'

    Holiday chiefs insisted there is still time before the summer for
    European countries to get coronavirus case numbers under control again.

    Asked what the most likely holiday destinations could be when travel is
    allowed, Andrew Flintham, managing director for Tui UK and Ireland, told >>> the BBC: 'Cyprus have come out and been very positive, Greece and Turkey >>> have come out and been very positive, and Spain again.

    'So I think all these European countries, whilst to a degree they are
    struggling with their rates at the moment, we are still a significant
    period away from the summer season properly opening up, we are probably
    11 weeks away.

    'The world has been changing on a weekly basis, never mind an 11-weekly
    basis. So we are still positive about those destinations. We are also
    positive that the Caribbean and some of those destinations will open up.' >>>
    Paul Charles, CEO of travel consultancy The PC Agency, told MailOnline
    he believes a 'handful' of European countries will be on the UK's green
    list in May with more to follow in June and July.

    He said that last year many European countries had high infection rates
    which were brought under control by the start of summer, adding: 'I
    think the same will happen this year because there is also the added
    bonus of the vaccine and the [EU] rollout will speed up. I am confident
    that much of Europe will be accessible by early July.'

    Martyn Sumners, executive director of the Association of Independent
    Tour Operators, warned of the time pressures the industry faces, telling >>> The Times: 'The fact that we won't know until next month which countries >>> are permitted for travel will make it very difficult to get programmes
    up and running. It does not happen overnight. There are many elements of >>> a holiday to organise.

    'The travel industry cannot go through the fiasco of cancelling bookings >>> because a system has been ill thought through and leave customers and
    operators angry because of the confusion.'

    Many in the industry fear a repeat of last year when countries were
    added to the travel red list at very short notice, leaving holidaymakers >>> scrambling to get home or cancel their trips.

    It came as leading scientific adviser Professor Neil Ferguson said
    testing everyone coming from Europe, with no exemptions, would be
    'sensible' as he expressed concerns about the spread of the South
    African variant on the continent.

    image captionMasks will be needed at the start of next term, but might
    not be required after 17 May, say ministers
    Secondary school pupils in England must keep wearing face masks in class >>> after the Easter holidays, said Education Secretary Gavin Williamson.

    Face masks would remain as a "precautionary measure," he said.

    Mr Williamson had promised to review the wearing of masks, which have
    been required since schools reopened fully last month.

    But head teachers say masks can disrupt learning and should not be used
    any longer than is "absolutely necessary".

    Announcing the decision to retain masks in the classroom, at least until >>> 17 May, the Department for Education (DfE) said: "This cautious approach >>> will help limit the risk of transmission and enable continued monitoring >>> of the effect of school and college returns."

    But the latest DfE guidance says: "It is expected that face coverings
    will no longer be required to be worn in classrooms, or by students in
    other communal areas, at step three of the roadmap, which will be no
    earlier than 17 May."

    First day back at school has 'gone well', say heads
    School attendance back at high levels in England
    "Schools and students have done a great job adapting to Covid secure
    guidance and working hard to make sure it doesn't impact learning," said >>> Mr Williamson.

    "We obviously all want to get back to facemask-free classrooms and we
    will do this in line with the latest scientific data while balancing the >>> interests of students, teachers and the wider community."

    However, Geoff Barton, head of the school leaders' union ASCL, said that >>> while his union would support the department's new guidance, masks in
    class were "not ideal".

    "The use of face coverings is clearly not ideal in a classroom setting,
    as it has the capacity to disrupt education and it is not something we
    want to see going on any longer than is absolutely necessary.

    "We hope that the continued excellent progress with vaccinations will
    mean it is no longer necessary for students to wear face coverings in
    lessons when the government announces the next stage in the easing of
    restrictions in May."

    But Patrick Roach, general secretary of the NASUWT teachers' union,
    welcomed the move.

    "Relaxing the rules in schools would send a message to pupils and
    parents that the threat of Covid has passed at a time when extreme
    caution is still needed.

    "We are not out of the woods yet and maintaining the highest levels of
    Covid security in our schools is critical as we move into the new term
    in order to protect the safety and health of teachers and learners."

    It’s inhuman that we’ve been left at the mercy of Sage’s garbage Covid
    models
    Ministers and scientists are trying to cover their backs, ignoring the
    fact that social interaction is not a luxury
    JONATHAN SUMPTION
    7 April 2021 • 9:30pm
    Jonathan Sumption
    The modellers have been at it again. The modelling committee of Sage
    (which goes by the unlovely name of SPI-M-O) has produced a report
    projecting the consequences of ending restrictions in accordance with
    the Government’s Covid Roadmap. The projection which has attracted the
    most attention, and was surely designed to, is that on “pessimistic but
    plausible” assumptions there will be a third wave in the summer if the
    restrictions are eased, leading to hospitalisations as bad as at the
    January peak.
    Does that seem odd? It should. The January peak reflected the situation
    before vaccinations took effect. So we are being told that it is
    “plausible” to think that the vaccines may make little difference to
    hospitalisations.
    When Imperial College produced its modelling report last March, which
    pushed the Government into the first lockdown, they pointed out that
    unless restrictions were kept in place until there was a vaccine,
    infections and associated hospitalisations and deaths would simply surge >>> again once the restrictions were lifted.
    The goalposts are now being shifted. We are being told that the
    restrictions may have to be kept in place even though there are now
    highly effective vaccines. Hospitalisations and deaths are at rock
    bottom. Almost all of the more vulnerable groups have been vaccinated.
    Even accounting for the MHRA’s changed advice regarding the AstraZeneca
    vaccine, a high proportion of the rest will have been inoculated by
    June. If the vaccine is not an exit route, then what is? The logic of
    the modellers’ more extreme projections is that the restrictions may
    have to stay in place indefinitely.
    It is time to be honest about documents of this kind. As aids to
    policymaking and public understanding, they are at best useless and at
    worst extremely misleading. The problem is that they are not evidence.
    They are just painting by numbers. A model will produce any result you
    care to name, depending on the assumptions fed into it.
    SPI-M-O’s report is based on models from three different institutions:
    Imperial College, Warwick University, and the London School of Hygiene
    and Tropical Medicine. All three models assume no dangerous new variant. >>> The critical assumption in all of them is about the efficacy of the two
    vaccines currently in use. The modellers assume a reduction in
    hospitalisations after two doses of the Astra Zeneca vaccine varying >>>from 80-90 per cent (Warwick) to 70-80 per cent (Imperial).
    These are wide ranges. The higher figure in the range is the modellers’
    “central” projection. The lower figure is the “pessimistic but
    plausible” projection. Neither has any greater validity than the other.
    It depends on what you feel like.
    Peak hospital occupancy in January was about 34,000. Hospital occupancy
    in August as projected by SPI-M-O could be anywhere between 4,000 and
    30,000 depending on which of the three modellers you choose, and whether >>> you choose the “central” or the “pessimistic but plausible” option. Only >>> at the outer extreme of pessimism does the projection come anywhere near >>> the January peak.
    But the real eye-opener is the comparison between the modellers’
    assumptions about vaccine efficacy and the real world. We do not need to >>> make assumptions about the efficacy of the vaccines. We have the results >>> of the clinical trials. In the latest US trials of the AstraZeneca
    vaccine, involving 32,000 people, the reduction in the number of cases
    serious enough to require hospitalisation was not 70-90 per cent, as
    assumed by the modellers, but 100 per cent. The modellers’ assumptions
    about the Pfizer vaccine are closer to the clinical trials, but they are >>> still notably more pessimistic. This makes a critical difference. If the >>> modellers had taken their assumptions from the real world, the projected >>> hospitalisations would have been far better than even the most
    optimistic projection.
    Why are the assumptions of the three modellers so different from each
    other? And why are they all so different from the empirical results? On
    the face of it, these assumptions are arbitrary, and the results based
    on them no better. Garbage in – garbage out. What is missing from all
    this number-crunching is an injection of judgment or common sense. The
    public is entitled to ask what is going on.
    What seems to be going on is that every one is covering their backs.
    Ministers want to pass the buck to the scientists. They want to be able
    to say “What a triumph for our policies” if things turn out fine; and
    “We followed the science” if they turn out badly. The scientists don’t
    like being made to carry the can for what is basically a political
    judgment. They want to be able to say “These were only scenarios, not
    predictions” if things turn out fine; and “We told you so” if they turn
    out badly. Each group is trying to manipulate the other. Balanced
    assessments based on actual evidence are sadly missing.
    There are more important things at stake than the reputation of
    ministers or their advisers. Human beings are social animals.
    Interaction with other people is not a luxury. It is a basic human need. >>> It is also the foundation of our mental health, our social organisation, >>> our leisure activities and our economy.
    There is a breed of public health officials who are indifferent to these >>> things. They have never reflected, at any rate in public, on what makes
    life worth living. As far as they are concerned, human beings are just
    instruments of government health policy. They will be lining up to tell
    us that it is dangerous to return to normal life because we cannot be
    absolutely sure that normal life will be risk-free. They will quote the
    gloomier speculations of modellers as evidence of what “might” happen if >>> the Government stops treating us like caged animals or inert specimens
    in some ghastly sociological laboratory.
    The Government must now make up its mind whether the vaccines are
    effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths, or not. If they are
    effective, then the restrictions on our lives are unnecessary and should >>> be lifted. If they are not effective, then they should still be lifted,
    because in that case we are going to have to live with periodic surges
    of Covid-19, for the only alternative is to prolong the current assault
    on our humanity indefinitely.

    The only healthy way to stop the pandemic in the UK, and other
    places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding

    Well THAT’S Cleared Up! Now We Know (As If There Was Reason For Doubt)

    APRIL 10, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL


    Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the current Director of the Centers For Disease

    health threat.

    Go ahead and read the statement if you like; that sentence above is all
    you need to know from an ethics perspective. If “racism”—it’s in quotes
    because the definition no longer has any coherent meaning, since it has
    been distorted to mean anything a social justice warrior or an unhappy
    individual who regards himself/herself/whateverself as a minority needs
    the word to mean at a given time or in a particular dispute, or, of
    course, a dictatorial-minded government—is a health issue, almost
    anything is. Maybe everything.

    Actually, racism defined in a dictionary as "a belief that race is a
    fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial
    differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race" does
    have "coherent meaning."

    Source of definition:
    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racism

    The so-called anti-racists go far beyond the dictionary definition.

    Scientists, including those at the CDC, use the dictionary.

    Context matters.

    media captionToastmaster opens pub with a gong
    For the first time in months, pub gardens, shops and hairdressers are
    reopening in England, as rules are also eased in the rest of the UK.

    Some pubs and salons opened at midnight, with one landlord saying there
    was a "sense of celebration", and shoppers queued outside Primark stores. >>>
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged everyone to "behave responsibly". >>>
    Northern Ireland's "stay-at-home" order is ending and some rules are

    easing, but that has been postponed following the death of the Duke of
    Edinburgh on Friday.

    Snow showers and chilly temperatures in parts of southern England

    Nicholas Hair, landlord and owner of the Kentish Belle pub in

    in the early hours of Monday as it opened to midnight customers.

    "I'm hoping that this is a sort of rebirth, and that we are reopen for
    the foreseeable," he said.

    In Coventry, hundreds of people queued outside the Oak Inn for its
    midnight opening. Owner Darren Lee said they served 260 customers, but
    turned 300 to 400 people away.

    salon at midnight for a symbolic "first cut" of 2021, adding she is

    Another business that reopened at midnight in England was Secret Spa,
    which offers at-home salon and spa treatments in London, Manchester and

    Co-owner Emily Ewart-Perks said it had "been such a long time coming",
    saying: "Everyone has really missed the social contact of the day-to-day >>> job and making clients happy."

    She said they have experienced a "surge of bookings", including "a lot
    of 6am haircuts".

    As of 10:00 BST, High Street footfall had more than trebled from a week

    Maxx and retailers extended their opening hours.

    image captionPubs in England cannot fully reopen until 21 June
    The pub industry has warned the sector is on its knees, with only two in >>> five English pubs reopening on Monday.

    Pubs in England can serve outdoors, but need to fully open without
    restrictions as soon as possible, they said.

    "No pub is expecting to profit from reopening outdoors, and many will
    make a loss," said Emma McClarkin, chief executive of the British Beer & >>> Pub Association.

    Some 2,500 pubs are estimated to have closed for good in 2020.

    "Pubs are the heart of our communities and we've all missed them. If
    they are to survive the long-term it's imperative they fully recover,"
    said Ms McClarkin.

    Pubs are expecting to sell about 15 million pints in the first week of
    reopening - about a quarter of what they would normally sell in an April >>> week.

    "Less than half of pubs in England will be reopening and the people they >>> can serve is going to be greatly limited by their outdoor space," said
    Ms McClarkin.

    'Delighted'
    Simon Daws, the proprietor of the Gloucester Old Spot, near Cheltenham,
    told the BBC: "It's fabulous to be open today,

    "Our customers are as delighted to see us as we are to see them, and the >>> atmosphere is of a new beginning and joy at the potential for a
    hedonistic summer, which we hope lies ahead of us."

    Nicholas Hair, the landlord and owner, said there was "big excitement"
    ahead of the reopening, with lots of people still ringing to see if they >>> could book minutes ahead of time.

    "I'm hoping that this is a sort of rebirth, and that we are reopen for
    the foreseeable," he said.

    But Angie Uren, landlady of the Coach & Horses pub in Bradfield Green,

    "It's going to be very difficult [to make money] because we don't really >>> know what customers will want, whether they're going to come out, with
    it being so cold," she says.

    Challenging
    Steve Alton, chief executive of the British Institute of Innkeeping,
    said: "Our research shows an encouraging trend of strong demand from

    Coronavirus pandemic

    Younger people continue to bear the brunt of the jobs crisis amid
    widespread cuts in sectors such as hospitality, official figures show.

    In the year to March, 811,000 payroll jobs were lost in the UK, with
    under-35s accounting for 80% of these cuts.

    The data also showed the unemployment rate dipped to 4.9% in the three
    months to February - down from 5% previously.

    This was despite most of the UK being under strict lockdown rules for at >>> least some of the period.

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the jobs market "remains
    subdued", with five million people employed but still on furlough.

    Head of economics at the British Chambers of Commerce, Suren?Thiru,
    said:? "Unemployment remains on course to peak towards the end of 2021,
    once the furlough scheme expires and those who stopped job hunting
    during the pandemic look to return to the workforce as restrictions ease. >>>

    "Although the furlough scheme will limit the peak in job losses, the
    longer-term structural unemployment caused by Covid-19, particularly
    among young people, may mean that the road back to pre-pandemic levels
    lags behind the wider economic recovery."

    'Finding work feels impossible for my generation'
    Overall, some 1.67 million people were unemployed between December and
    February. That is down 50,000 on the previous quarter but still 311,000
    higher than a year ago.

    But the ONS said younger people were suffering disproportionately, as
    sectors such as retail and hospitality were hit hard by the crisis.

    People aged under 35 accounted for 635,000 payroll jobs lost in the year >>> to March, with 436,000 of those positions held by people under 25.

    Gerwyn Davies, senior policy adviser at the Chartered Institute of
    Professional Development, said the number of young people in employment
    had hit a "post-pandemic low".

    "This reinforces the urgent case for apprenticeship incentives to be
    made more generous and targeted specifically at 18-24 year-olds. It also >>> underlines the need to improve employers' awareness of traineeships and
    the Kickstart [work placement] Scheme."

    line
    Analysis box by Faisal Islam, economics editor
    It would be wrong to get carried away with the pleasant surprise of a
    dip in the official unemployment rate below 5%. The real pandemic
    picture is in the tax data for March. 813,000 fewer payrolls on the PAYE >>> system versus a year ago, and four fifths of those jobs were lost to
    under 35s.

    But the fact that the numbers in the first few months have been broadly
    stable is definitely a source of relief. Employers were able to navigate >>> the second lockdown without widespread further job losses, thanks to the >>> extension of support schemes such as furlough.

    This provides a more solid basis than might have been expected for the
    phased reopening of the economy. There will be strains, especially as
    support is phased out in late summer. But these figures offer hope of a
    lower peak to unemployment, perhaps at around 6%, than had been expected. >>>
    line
    The ONS said the overall jobs market had been "broadly stable" in recent >>> months after the major shock of last spring, when where the economy
    contracted sharply.

    ONS director of economic statistics Darren Morgan said the labour market >>> "remains subdued" but that there were positive signs.

    "With the prospect of businesses reopening, there was a marked rise in
    job vacancies in March, especially in sectors such as hospitality."

    The Bank of England expects an economic rebound this year, as lockdown
    measures are eased and government support for jobs continues. But it
    says the recovery still depends on the "evolution of the pandemic".

    Hannah Audino, an economist at PwC, said the stabilisation of the jobs
    market during the third national lockdown boded well for the UK economy. >>>
    "We expect a gradual recovery in the labour market in the coming months
    with the reopening of hospitality and retail, provided the government's
    roadmap to reopening the economy continues to go to plan."

    Tests have been suspended due to Covid restrictions since January, but

    ahead of the shops reopening
    Shops, gyms, swimming pools, pubs, restaurants and cafes in Scotland
    have reopened after a four month-long winter lockdown.

    Early morning queues formed at fashion retailers in Glasgow and
    Edinburgh as shoppers waited for doors opening.

    Travel restrictions have also been eased, allowing trips to other parts
    of the UK for non-essential reasons.

    Ministers say restrictions can be eased as the most vulnerable people
    have been offered their first vaccine dose.

    Scotland has been in level four lockdown since 26 December, with all
    non-essential shops, leisure facilities, and hospitality venues closed.

    New draft hospitality Covid guidance a 'bombshell'
    How many people are not taking the Covid vaccine?
    Driving lessons and tests can resume, while nail salons, museums and
    holiday accommodation can also reopen.


    As the mainland moves into level three restrictions many businesses will >>> still be subject to strict rules on capacity and social distancing.

    Unlike England, pubs and restaurants will be able open indoors until
    20:00 - but they will only be able to serve alcohol to customers seated
    outside.

    Braehead Shopping Centre near Glasgow opened at 07:00, with some
    customers outside for an hour beforehand.

    Lush on Edinburgh's Princes Street had a small queue waiting. Manager
    Alan Brown said: "We're just really excited to be speaking to people
    again after such a long time."

    Liz Cameron from the Scottish Chamber of Commerce said the excitement
    was "fantastic" for businesses.

    She added: "We must remember it's been a long time, and we have a lot of >>> costs we have to be able to recoup and it will not happen in a day or a
    week.

    "It's the start of our journey but let's remember this is about trying

    Public Health expert Prof Devi Sridhar said infection numbers were low
    enough to support the opening up of a large part of society.

    She told BBC Radio's Good Morning Scotland: "The end is in sight within
    weeks. We can see the full adult population getting vaccines by the summer."

    She said Covid testing would also make a difference.

    "I would really encourage people to get tested both the PCR and at home
    lateral flow testing," she added.

    "The safest way to keep bars and pubs and indoor hospitality open is to
    make sure that nobody inside is infectious."

    Rapid testing kits are being made available to everyone in the country.

    Among those reopening their business is Barry Cowan from The Walled
    Garden Touring Park, near Maybole in Ayrshire.

    He had to open his gates four hours earlier than usual to meet demand.

    He said the caravan park would be operating at half capacity so
    holiday-makers have more space. But with restrictions on foreign travel
    still in place, Mr Cowan is booked into August and September.

    "We can't wait, we're really, really excited and we're sure we're going

    "We were closed for four months so most of our income stopped, so we're

    still a good way to travel before we're back to normal levels".

    Permitting bars and restaurants to serve drinks indoors will be the key
    to rebuilding after a "really difficult" few months.

    "I think we need to get back to enjoying alcohol inside, in an indoor

    Coronavirus pandemic

    media captionAssistant head teacher Victoria Day has five tips to ensure >>> children's vocabulary keeps improving
    There is growing evidence that the past year of lockdowns has had an
    impact on young children's language skills, according to research.

    Data from 50,000 pupils and a survey of schools across England have
    shown an increased number of four- and five-year-olds needing help with
    language.

    Evidence shows poor speech development can have long-term effects on
    learning.

    The government says it is investing £18m in early-years catch-up,
    including extra help for those in Reception year.

    The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) research suggests the measures
    taken to combat the pandemic have deprived the youngest children of
    social contact and experiences essential for increasing vocabulary.

    Less or no contact with grandparents, social distancing, no play dates,
    and the wearing of face coverings in public have left children less
    exposed to conversations and everyday experiences.

    Of 58 primary schools surveyed across England:

    76% said pupils starting school in September 2020 needed more support
    with communication than in previous years
    96% they were concerned about pupils' speech-and-language development.
    And 56% of parents were concerned about their child starting at school
    following the lockdown in the spring and summer.

    Starting school
    Niamh, in Reception at Ryders Hayes Primary School, in Walsall, is
    slowly building her confidence with words.

    Like many children, her life has been limited by the pandemic, her
    social circle shrinking to her immediate family. And this left her
    mother, Lisa, anxious about her starting school.

    Lisa and Niamh
    image captionLisa, whose surname we have not used, was worried about her >>> daughter starting school
    "She was one of the youngest in the year and it worried me that other
    children had got more school experience with nursery or pre-school,"

    "My concern was, after being locked down all of the summer and not going >>> out to play with her friends, how was she going to respond to a room
    full of new children and new teachers?"

    But the school's approach had worked well. "We never had a tearful
    morning - we never had a day where she didn't want to come to school,"
    Lisa said.

    Five ways children could make up for lost school time
    Should I worry about my child's development in lockdown?
    Making friends
    Another mother at Ryder Hayes - Emma - was also worried about the school >>> start and whether her son, Harry, would be able to articulate his needs. >>>
    "I was worried about him making friends, that if something was troubling >>> him he'd be sat in the corner upset and he'd not be able to ask for help >>> or say what was wrong with him, so I was concerned," she said.

    Emma and Harry
    image captionEmma, whose full name we have not used, says Harry is now
    "a little chatterbox"
    But Harry has been participating in the Nuffield Early Language
    Intervention at school, which can help children make up about three
    months' progress.

    "It is making a huge difference," Emma said. "He's become a little
    chatterbox. He's always asking questions and thinking more and asking
    more like, 'How does hair grow?' He's communicating his thoughts more."

    'Absolutely key'
    The school's head teacher Saly Miner said problems with communication
    were "really limiting" for young children, particularly if they were
    unable to express themselves, interact with peers and make themselves
    understood.

    "It's absolutely key," she said. "It's all about a child's self-esteem
    and confidence.

    "And without that, they're not going to feel happy, they're not going to >>> be able to grow, they're not going to be able to gain all the benefits
    of interacting with their peers as we'd want them to, and interact with
    staff.

    "All the research shows that if a child does have issues with language
    at that age, by adulthood they're four times more likely to struggle
    with reading, three time more likely to have mental health issues, twice >>> as likely to be unemployed and have social-mobility issues, so getting
    this right at such an early age is literally the key to children's futures."

    EEF chief executive Prof Becky Francis said there was "huge concern
    expressed by schools about young children's speech and language
    following the impact of the pandemic".

    "We can see that in the survey results but also anecdotally right across >>> our networks."

    Catch-up plans 'not reaching poorest pupils'
    Generation Covid: How will they catch up?
    The EEF's findings are also reflected in data from the company Speech
    Link, which offers standardised assessments to primary schools.

    Among 50,000 four- and five-year-olds starting school in September, an
    extra 20-25% needed help with language skills compared with the previous >>> year, the company found. There are also concerns about the impact of the >>> pandemic on pre-school children.

    In some parts of England, up to 63% of health visitors, who check on the >>> development of babies and toddlers, had been redeployed early in the
    pandemic, the Institute of Health Visiting said.

    'Most crucial'
    Many families had missed out on face-to-face assessments, acting
    executive director Alison Morton said.

    "We know there are children out there with difficulties who haven't been >>> identified," she said. "There hasn't been a 'build back better' for
    younger children in the way there has been for older children."

    Children and Families Minister Vicky Ford said the earliest years were
    "the most crucial".

    "On top of the £3.5bn we have spent in each of the past three years on
    our free childcare entitlements, we have also invested £18m to support
    language development in the early years, part of our new £700m package
    to provide extra support to children who need it as they return to the
    classroom," she said.

    "This includes funding to build on the early successes of the Nuffield
    Early Language Intervention scheme and roll it out to more schools, so
    that thousands more four- and five-year-olds whose language,
    communication and literacy skills have been impacted by the disruption
    of the past year will benefit from targeted support."

    People may be able to hug their loved ones after June 21, a Government
    scientific adviser has said, as a new study shows a single jab cuts
    virus transmission by up to half.

    Dr Mike Tildesley, from the University of Warwick and a member of the
    Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling (Spi-M) group,
    suggested the decision on whether social distancing would be needed
    after the June road map date could be a political one.

    However, he said vaccines were doing the job of preventing most people
    falling seriously ill, and he was hopeful hugs would be back on the
    agenda by the date the Government has set for lifting legal limits on
    social contact.

    PROMOTED STORIES
    It comes as a new study from Public Health England (PHE) shows that a
    single dose of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccines >>> can slash virus transmission by up to half.

    The breakthrough findings offer further hope that the pandemic can be
    brought under control as vaccinated people are far less likely to pass
    the virus onto others.

    How to get 50% off or 2 for 1 when eating out
    Tastecard is a discount card accepted by many restaurants in the UK.

    When you sign up to Tastecard you can get exclusive deals on eating out, >>> visiting attractions and even when ordering your weekly shop.

    More than 400 restaurants that are opening for alfresco dining across
    the UK are featured on tastecard.

    Foodies have the chance to get 2 for 1 on meals or 50% off food at some
    of their favourite chains including Bella Italia, Prezzo, Café Rouge and >>> more.

    New members can try tastecard for free for 60 days (£5.99 a month after
    that).

    The 60 day free trial also offers 50% off pizza delivery and 10% off
    delivery and collection from selected businesses - find out more or sign >>> up here.

    The study found that those given a single dose of a jab, and who became
    infected at least three weeks later, were between 38% and 49% less
    likely to pass the virus on to people living in their homes, compared to >>> those who were unvaccinated.

    Speaking on Times Radio, Dr Tildesley was asked at what stage people
    will be able to be close to another person, such as a family member, if
    both have been vaccinated.

    He said: “I think this is really difficult because of course, in a

    “Whether that means that on that date some social distancing will be in

    Grant Shapps says when summer holiday rules will be announcedhulldailymail >>> He said there was a need for ongoing monitoring of the situation,
    including of what happens when people are allowed to mix indoors again.

    From May 17, up to two households, or six individuals from other
    households (the rule of six), will be able to meet inside.

    Dr Tildesley said: “We obviously do need to monitor the data as we get
    to the main relaxation, when you are allowed to go inside people’s
    households, it’s really important that we monitor that data and ensure
    that we don’t get a resurgence at that point.”

    The PHE study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, included over 57,000
    people living in 24,000 households who were the contacts of a vaccinated >>> person.

    They were compared with nearly one million contacts of people who had
    not had a vaccine.

    Contacts were defined as secondary cases of coronavirus if they tested
    positive two to 14 days after the initial household case.

    Other studies have already shown that both vaccines are highly effective >>> at stopping people getting sick and ending up in hospital.

    Experts will now assess whether two doses of vaccine can cut
    transmission of the virus even further, and more work is being carried
    out on transmission in the general population.

    Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock welcomed the study,
    saying: “This is terrific news, we already know vaccines save lives and
    this study is the most comprehensive real-world data showing they also
    cut transmission of this deadly virus.

    “It further reinforces that vaccines are the best way out of this
    pandemic as they protect you and they may prevent you from unknowingly
    infecting someone in your household.

    “I urge everybody to get their vaccines as soon as they are eligible and >>> make sure you get your second dose for the strongest possible protection.” >>>
    Dr Tildesley told BBC Breakfast he thought the PHE findings on
    transmission were “significant”.

    He said the study offered “extra evidence to suggest we do need as many
    people to be vaccinated as possible, even if you are not at severe risk
    of developing severe symptoms, because that way we’re getting much
    higher levels of protection across the population, protecting the
    vulnerable and, hopefully, further reducing the number of people who
    will get severely ill and sadly die from the disease”.

    The vaccines’ effects on cutting transmission are likely to be even
    higher after two doses, though further evidence was needed, he added.

    He said the UK was in a good position and the fact the “vaccines seem to >>> be effective hopefully puts us in a good position to continue with the
    road map and the full relaxation by June 21”.

    Professor Peter Openshaw, a member of the Covid-19 clinical information
    network, described the PHE results as “very, very reassuring and
    “certainly better than many of us expected just a few months ago”.

    He told the BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “It shows that the immune

    Just one dose of either the Pfizer BioNTech or AstraZeneca vaccines cut
    coronavirus cases by two-thirds and were 74% effective against

    After two doses of Pfizer, there was a 70% reduction in all cases and a

    People are being urged to remain patient before the next relaxation of
    Covid lockdown restrictions as there is still a possibility for
    coronavirus cases to “reignite”, amid reports that family and friends in >>> England could be allowed to hug in just over a fortnight.

    The success of the vaccine rollout and sharp reduction in coronavirus
    cases and deaths has led ministers to support the move, according to the >>> Times. If approved, this would mark the first time that people in
    England have been allowed to have physical contact outside of their
    household or bubble for more than a year.

    The government had said it would keep hugging under review as England
    approaches the third stage of the roadmap out of lockdown on 17 May. It
    has not yet made a formal announcement on the decision.

    However, the former chief scientific adviser Sir Mark Walport warned
    that “the virus has not gone away” because many UK adults have still not >>> had their first vaccine jab.

    “We are on the cusp of being able to move to the next step of
    relaxation; it’s absolutely right that vaccines have been spectacularly
    successful but not everybody is protected,” Walport, a member of the
    Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), told BBC Radio 4’s
    Today programme.

    “We’ve got 35% of adults who are not vaccinated and 60% who have only
    had one dose and the truth is the virus has not gone away.”

    “The mistake that has been made repeatedly, really, is relaxing just
    slightly too early. What we need to do is get the numbers right down.
    It’s important that we don’t act as an incubator for variant cases that
    might be able to resist immunity.”


    Walport said the UK was still recording about 4,600 new cases each day,
    adding: “There’s the potential for that spark to reignite, it seems
    increasingly unlikely, but we need to get the numbers down.”

    According to figures released on Friday, more than half of adults in the >>> UK have now had one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, and more than 20% are >>> fully vaccinated.

    If the government sticks to its plan, people in England will be allowed
    to meet inside from 17 May, following the rule of six or two-household
    rule, and be allowed to meet outdoors in groups of up to 30.

    Hospitality venues such as pubs and restaurants will reopen indoors, as
    will cinemas, play areas and accommodation such as hotels. Some larger
    sporting events and performances will be allowed to go ahead with up to
    1,000 people indoors, or 4,000 people outdoors. The number of people

    Lockdown: Boris Johnson to announce 17 May changes for England

    image captionThe next stage of lockdown easing is likely to see the
    reopening of indoor hospitality
    Indoor hospitality and household mixing are set to return from next
    Monday, as the PM is due to confirm the next stage of lockdown easing in >>> England.

    Boris Johnson is expected to say the data supports a further relaxation
    of measures at a 17:00 BST Downing Street news conference later.

    It could also include guidance that it is now safe to hug friends and
    family.

    Health Minister Nadine Dorries said she was "hopeful" hugging could be
    allowed but urged people to act "cautiously".

    Ahead of the Downing Street briefing, the UK reduced its Covid alert
    level from level four to three, meaning the virus is in general
    circulation but transmission is no longer high or rising exponentially,
    so restrictions can be gradually reduced.

    Under the next stage of the government's road map for lifting England's
    lockdown, people will be able to meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors,
    while six people or two households can meet indoors.

    People are also likely to be allowed to stay overnight with those not in >>> their household or bubble. Pubs, restaurants and other hospitality
    venues such as cinemas and soft play areas are set to be permitted to
    reopen indoors.

    When can we have a 'cautious' hug?
    What changes are coming on 17 May?
    The science of hugs: Why do we miss them so much?
    A government science adviser said that if the guidance does allow hugs,
    they should be selective, brief, and should avoid face-to-face contact
    to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.

    But Ms Dorries said "the data is looking extremely positive" when she
    was asked if the guidance would be relaxed to allow hugging between
    friends and family.

    "We've all missed the hugs, we've all missed the close and intimate
    contact we've had with friends and family and so I'm hopeful that we
    will be hugging and kissing again indoors," she told BBC Radio 4's Today >>> programme.

    She stressed that people should take this step "a little bit cautiously" >>> to protect people who may be vulnerable and avoid a resurgence of the
    virus, however.

    Unlocking a sign of success in fighting infection
    Analysis box by Nick Triggle, health correspondent
    It is a sign of how successful the country has been in getting infection >>> rates down that there is no doubt that the next unlocking will take place. >>>
    Allowing indoor mixing was always the step that concerned experts the
    most in the roadmap - given how much easier the virus spreads indoors
    compared to outdoors.

    Modelling earlier this year warned there could be a deadly summer surge
    - but that now looks overly pessimistic.

    Lockdown and social distancing has done most of the hard work in getting >>> infection levels low, but now the vaccines are going to take the load.

    From the evidence gathered so far, they are more than up to the job in
    combating the dominant virus in the UK.

    Early signs are also promising for the variants.

    Some scientists are even suggesting the UK could be on brink of reaching >>> herd immunity.

    As always with this virus, it would be foolish to get too far ahead of
    ourselves. But the signs look very promising.

    2px presentational grey line
    As part of other measures set to be relaxed, the rest of the
    accommodation sector is to reopen, along with indoor group sports and
    exercise classes.

    And up to 30 people are to be allowed to attend weddings, receptions and >>> wakes, as well as funerals.

    Foreign holidays will also return. On Friday, the government announced
    that 12 destinations would be placed on England's travel green list,
    meaning anyone returning from those areas will not need to quarantine >>>from 17 May.

    Monday's announcement of lockdown easing will be stage three of the road >>> map announced by the government in February, with the final stage
    scheduled for 21 June, when the government hopes to remove all legal
    restrictions on social contact.

    Each stage has been separated by a gap of several weeks to allow
    scientists to assess the impact of previous changes, which in stage two
    included the reopening of non-essential shops and outdoor service in
    pubs and restaurants.

    The government has to be satisfied that its four tests have been met
    before progressing to the next stage.

    These tests rest on the successful rollout of vaccines; evidence that
    jabs are reducing serious illness and death; infection rates being under >>> control and the risk from coronavirus variants not changing.


    media captionCatherine Noakes, from the University of Leeds, says we
    should hug safely
    The government said the latest data suggested that easing restrictions >>>from 17 May was unlikely to risk a resurgence in infections. It said
    infection rates were at the lowest level since September 2020 and
    hospital admissions were continuing to decrease.

    On Sunday, the UK recorded another two deaths within 28 days of a
    positive coronavirus test and a further 1,770 cases.

    Mr Johnson said: "The data reflects what we already knew - we are not
    going to let this virus beat us.

    "The roadmap remains on track, our successful vaccination programme
    continues - more than two-thirds of adults in the UK have now had the
    first vaccine - and we can now look forward to unlocking, cautiously but >>> irreversibly."

    More than 35.3 million people have received one Covid vaccine dose and
    17.6 million people have had both doses.

    Prof Cath Noakes, a member of the Sage committee that advises the

    every time they see them, it would "perpetuate an awful lot of
    additional close contact that could spread the virus".

    But she said the risk from grandparents who are fully vaccinated hugging >>> their grandchildren was likely to be low in most cases.

    The devolved nations are working to their own timeframe for easing
    restrictions.

    In Wales, indoor hospitality such as pubs, cafes, restaurants, cinemas,
    theatres and museums are expected to reopen from 17 May. All tourist
    accommodation is due to reopen and wedding receptions can have up to 30
    people indoors and 50 outdoors.

    In Scotland from 17 May, indoor hospitality venues are expected to
    resume with alcohol being served until 22:30. Cinemas, amusement arcades >>> and bingo halls should reopen and indoor group exercise restart.

    More restrictions may be lifted in Northern Ireland on 24 May, including >>> the reopening of indoor hospitality, B&Bs and hotels. Indoor group
    exercise could resume and wedding receptions and funeral wakes restart.

    In recent weeks, a seeming contradiction has emerged: States in the U.S. >>> that have had little to no COVID-19 restrictions have gotten case counts >>> under control, while in Canada there are provinces still struggling with >>> a third wave despite having never fully reopened.

    It has the potential to become fuel for anti-lockdown protesters: If
    those states have opened up and brought case counts down, why can’t we?
    Do lockdowns not work?


    The reality, experts say, is that there are numerous other factors at
    play — from vaccination rates, to immunity from prior infections, to
    climate.

    Last Monday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis invalidated all local emergency
    orders in the state, meaning there are now no restrictions and people
    are free to gather and hit the beach. The decision drew criticism from
    mayors, who saw their cities’ rules wiped out. In Texas, restrictions
    were lifted in early March, including opening businesses and lifting
    mask mandates.

    Yet, paradoxically, both places seem to be doing alright in the spring
    wave of the pandemic.

    Over the last week, Texas has had a rate of 53.2 COVID-19 cases per
    100,000 people; Florida’s rate is 126 per 100,000, according to data >>>from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.

    Meanwhile, Alberta’s seven-day case rate is 314 per 100,000 and
    Ontario’s is 148 per 100,000 people, according to data from the Public
    Health Agency of Canada’s epidemiological survey. Alberta has banned all >>> indoor gatherings and closed patios and put strict limits on other
    outdoor gatherings, while Ontario is still under a stay-home order.

    Over the course of the pandemic, however, Canada’s overall case rate of
    around 3,300 per 100,000 people is dwarfed by the rates seen in Florida
    and Texas, which are both around 10,000 cases per 100,000 people. No
    state has an infection rate comparable to Canada, overall.

    So why are lockdown-free states suddenly doing as well or better than
    locked-down provinces?

    The simple explanation is the rate of vaccination, said Thomas Unnasch,
    a professor at the University of South Florida who studies diseases.

    “It’s starting to get to a point where … the virus is running out of
    people to infect, so we’re really seeing a decline in the case numbers
    as a result,” Unnasch said.

    In Florida, about 42 per cent of the population has had at least one
    dose of a vaccine; about 31 per cent are fully vaccinated. In Texas, 50
    per cent have one dose, with 37 per cent fully vaccinated.

    In contrast, Alberta has given one dose to 32 per cent of the population >>> and just 6.8 per cent of people are fully vaccinated. In Ontario, about
    38 per cent of the population has had one dose, and 2.7 per cent are
    fully vaccinated.

    Community transmission, explains Dr. Lynora Saxinger, an infectious
    disease expert at the University of Alberta, tends to drop when around
    50 per cent of the population have some sort of immunity, whether that’s >>>from vaccination or because of the number of people who already had
    COVID-19.

    In Florida and Texas, that’s about 10 per cent of the population, with
    2.2 million total cases in Florida and 2.9 million cases in Texas. In
    Alberta, though, just 4.8 per cent of the population (about 209,000
    people) have had COVID-19, and in Ontario, that figure is even lower, at >>> 3.4 per cent of the population (492,000).

    With such enormous rates of infection seen earlier in the pandemic,
    Saxinger explained, at this point, the virus has fewer places to spread
    in Florida and Texas.

    “It becomes easier to contain it to a lower level level of
    transmission,” Saxinger said. “So they’re just in a completely different >>> place than we are.”


    Even with the active case rates being lower in Florida and Texas than
    many parts of Canada, and the vaccination rates being substantially
    higher, death rates, both historic and current, are higher than north of >>> the border.

    In Canada, the overall death rate is 65 per 100,000; Alberta’s is 48 per >>> 100,000 and Ontario’s is 56 per 100,000. Over the last seven days, the
    death rate in Canada, Alberta and Ontario is just one in 100,000.

    Florida’s overall death rate is 166 per 100,000 and, in the last seven

    170 per 100,000 and in the last seven days, it’s one per 100,000 — on
    par with Canada’s death rate. (About half of the U.S. states have a
    seven-day death rate on par with or lower than Canada’s.)

    Even Quebec, the worst-performing Canadian province for deaths, with 128 >>> per 100,000 people, performed better than all but 13 U.S. states and all >>> of the territories.

    There have been, over the course of the pandemic, around 35,000 COVID-19 >>> deaths in Florida and just shy of 50,000 deaths in Texas. Canada has had >>> a total of 24,655 deaths.

    There are other factors that have helped states like Florida and Texas
    get case rates under control, including good weather that encourages
    people to move outdoors.

    “This is the prime time of the year here in Florida, right, in terms of
    weather,” said Unnasch. “People are outdoors a lot more, they’re not
    spending that much time inside, they’re not spending that much time
    crowded together.”

    Whether people are at work, and under what conditions, as well as more
    complex factors, like seasonal variations and climate, may also impact
    cases. For example, humidity seems to make it more difficult for the
    virus to spread.

    “Those are much more speculative than the partially immune from natural
    infection and vaccine-induced immunity group, which I think is probably
    the lion’s share of the difference that we’re seeing,” Saxinger said.

    The only healthy way to really stop the pandemic in Florida and other

    which does allow us to be 100% certain that we're both
    not infected by the COVID-19 coronavirus at the moment
    so that we can "rapidly find out at any given moment, including
    even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious
    (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to "Convince
    It Forward" for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine
    per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead
    of having more "Mourning In America." Thus, we're hoping for
    the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the
    "UK variant" strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, (and Indian B.1.617.1 & B.1.617.2), Californian,
    Texan (BV-1) & "Cluster 5 Mink" mutations combining to render
    current vaccines no longer effective" (see my comment at the very top).

    Covid: Lessons to be learned from spring 2022 public inquiry - PM
    By Emma Harrison

    Coronavirus pandemic

    media captionPM Boris Johnson said the UK's Covid response would be
    "placed under the microscope"
    The government is "fully committed to learning the lessons at every
    stage" of the pandemic, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.

    He told MPs an independent public inquiry into the handling of the
    pandemic would be held in spring 2022.

    The inquiry would place "the state's actions under the microscope", he
    added, and take evidence under oath.

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer questioned why the inquiry could not
    start earlier, such as later in 2021.

    But addressing the Commons, the prime minister said the inquiry could
    not "inadvertently distract" those within the NHS and government
    advisers, who were continuing to deal with the pandemic.

    The inquiry's terms of reference have not yet been defined but would be
    published in "due course", he said, adding that the devolved
    administrations would be consulted.

    On Wednesday the UK reported another 11 deaths within 28 days of a
    positive test and a further 2,284 coronavirus cases.

    Mr Johnson acknowledged many bereaved families would want the inquiry to >>> begin sooner, but said because of the threat of new variants and a
    possible winter surge in infections, spring next year would be the
    "right moment".

    What is the Covid inquiry and how will it work?
    What's changing in England, Scotland and Wales?
    Town's Covid surge leaves hospitality nervous

    He said the "new variants pose a potentially lethal danger, including
    the one first identified in India which is of increasing concern here".

    "Should these [variants] prove highly transmissible and elude the
    protection of our vaccines, they would have the potential to cause even
    greater suffering than we endured in January."

    Bolton has one of the highest instances of the Indian variant in the UK
    and is seeing a particularly sharp rise in cases among unvaccinated
    under-25s.

    Health officials in Glasgow have expressed concern about a rising number >>> of Covid cases in the city - the latest public case rate is 58.3 per
    100,000, well above a key threshold for easing restrictions.

    More than 127,600 people have died in the UK with coronavirus, making it >>> one of the worst affected countries by number of deaths.

    The inquiry is expected to examine the government's handling of the
    pandemic, including the timing of its decision to impose lockdowns.

    Mr Johnson told MPs the inquiry would be established on a "statutory
    basis" - where witnesses can be legally compelled to attend and give
    evidence and provide relevant material under oath.

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called for clarification on whether the
    inquiry would be formally opened in spring next year or whether that
    will be when work begins to establish the inquiry.

    In response, Mr Johnson said the preparatory work to establish the terms >>> of reference and the inquiry chairman "will happen before the spring of
    next year".

    Mr Johnson - who has set out plans to ease some of England's coronavirus >>> restrictions on 17 May - said: "The end of the lockdown is not the end
    of the pandemic."

    He added: "The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that the
    pandemic has now reached its global peak and will last throughout this
    year."

    A WHO report released on Wednesday said the organisation should have
    declared a global emergency earlier than it did, and that individual
    governments failed to act quickly enough.

    Most leading healthcare systems struggled to get to grips with Covid in

    The inquiry will look at the extent to which the experience here
    mirrored that of other countries and how decisions and policies
    affecting outcomes were different.

    Key questions will include preparedness and why before last year health
    chiefs only "war-gamed" a serious flu epidemic.

    Why were PPE supplies so inadequate and why then was procurement so flawed? >>>
    Why was testing and tracing dropped because of lack of capacity in the
    early stages of the pandemic?

    There will be intense scrutiny of the decision to fully lock down only
    on 23 March last year when dire warnings about the NHS being potentially >>> overwhelmed had come more than a week earlier.

    Different approaches to opening up in the UK's nations will be considered. >>>
    The biggest question is likely to be why the UK had one of the highest
    Covid death rates relative to the population of any major economy.

    The inquiry will need to consider whether this might be the result of
    misguided official decision making - or a consequence of underlying
    inequalities and poor health in disadvantaged communities, and perhaps
    under-investment in public health.

    2px presentational grey line
    The Liberal Democrats, who were calling for a public inquiry in June
    2020, said the planned timing of the inquiry meant the government were
    "getting away from… early accountability".

    Meanwhile, Jo Goodman, co-founder of the Covid-19 Bereaved Families for
    Justice campaign group, said the inquiry must involve families from the
    start, allowing them to help to choose the chair as well as determining
    the terms of reference.

    She said spring 2022 was "simply too late to begin".

    "It sounds like common sense when the prime minister says that an
    inquiry can wait until the pandemic is over, but lives are at stake with >>> health experts and scientists warning of a third wave later this year.

    "A rapid review in summer 2020 could have saved our loved ones who died
    in the second wave in winter."

    Along with the Lib Dems, the campaign group called on the government to
    release an internal "lessons learned" investigation into its handling of >>> the pandemic.

    Downing Street confirmed an "informal" review of its response has been
    carried out but declined to say whether it would be published.

    She told the BBC: "That is something that can be done in a matter of
    weeks, that wouldn't tie up people's time to the degree that a full
    judge-led inquiry would.

    "That would hopefully begin to get some quick answers to some of the
    very pressing questions."

    Dame Deirdre Hine - the author of the independent review into the swine
    flu pandemic - told BBC Radio 4's World at One: "Looking at what will
    have to be the terms of reference and the ground it [the inquiry] has to >>> cover; I can't see it reporting in less than two to three years."

    Professor Sir Ian Kennedy, who chaired an inquiry into the deaths of
    babies undergoing heart surgery, warned against placing a time limit on
    the inquiry.

    He told the BBC's Newscast podcast: "What's got to be worked out are the >>> mechanics. Who's going to chair it? Is he or she going to sit with
    others? Is it going to be time limited? That would be a disaster. It
    must be done as expeditiously as possible, but never put a time limit on >>> it because you never know what circumstances will arise."

    Working from home guidance
    In the Commons, Mr Johnson also confirmed a commission on Covid
    commemoration is to be established to help remember those who lost their >>> lives during the pandemic.

    He added he "wholeheartedly" supported the plan for a memorial in St
    Paul's Cathedral, describing it as "a fitting place of reflection in the >>> heart of our capital".

    In response to a question from Conservative MP Felicity Buchan on the
    government's work-at-home advice, Mr Johnson said it was "certainly" the >>> intention to lift the guidance on 21 June, but the government would "say >>> that with more clarity a bit later on".

    Everyone who can work from home must do so under the current government
    advice.

    On Thursday, England's Covid vaccination programme will open to those
    aged 38 and 39, with the NHS website to be updated at 07:00 BST.

    service from Thursday and will be directed to vaccination centres
    offering Pfizer and Moderna in their local area - in line with guidance >>>from the UK's vaccine advisers.

    More than 18.4m people - 35% of the adult population - have now received >>> both doses of a vaccine, with 35.7m people having received one jab.

    Chemotherapy is not always the most appropriate course of action for
    cancer patients. Put simply, the side effects of chemotherapy, which can >>> have an extremely detrimental effect on the patient’s quality of life,
    must be taken into account in the context of the Hippocratic oath (first >>> do no harm) before any treatments are prescribed. Where a good chance of >>> recovery is not present, subjecting the patient to possible months of
    nausea, loss-of-appetite, fatigue, insomnia, hair loss, compromised
    immunity, anaemia or other debilitating conditions, may not be
    proportional to the benefit. This is why, in every individual case,
    decisions are made by clinicians in consultation with the patient and
    their family to decide whether chemotherapy is the best course of action. >>>
    Sensible decisions can only be made when the harms caused by cancer and
    the negative side-effects of chemotherapy are seen as mutually
    exclusive. Were doctors to conflate the two, a cost-benefit analysis
    would be rendered impossible. No oncologist would ever tell their
    patient that the hair loss they were experiencing was “because of the
    cancer”, knowing full well that it was a side-effect of the treatment.
    Chemotherapy is undoubtedly a highly-effective and life-saving treatment >>> with years of efficacy data to support its implementation — but even in
    cases where the benefits clearly outweigh the harms, the treatment is
    always regarded as a choice with repercussions.

    Imagine if, from its inception, chemotherapy had become an ideology.
    Imagine that respect for this miracle of science had transcended into
    zealotry, whereby no side-effects were ever considered and all
    debilitating symptoms were ascribed to the cancer itself. Many patients
    would have undergone this treatment unnecessarily, suffering a huge blow >>> to the quality of their remaining life without any real benefit. The
    ability to weigh up risk and reward is a prerequisite for any healthcare >>> practitioner or policymaker.

    There is a very deliberate line of rhetoric designed to shut down any
    retrospective analysis of lockdown

    Consider society as a patient. The novel coronavirus is the cancer. The
    government’s scientific advisors are the oncologists and the measures
    they “prescribe” are the treatment. No one can deny that the response to >>> the threat of SARS-CoV-2 has been extreme. Unlike chemotherapy, the
    treatments advocated by public health advisors are novel and
    experimental. Thus far, the side effects have included, but are not
    limited to, the largest drop in GDP in over 300 years, at least 70,000
    families facing homelessness, alcohol deaths rising to a 20 year high, a >>> doubling of suicide-related calls to the London Ambulance Service,
    increased eating disorders in children and young people, a 60% increase
    in domestic abuse, 350,000 missed cancer referrals, 50,000 delayed child >>> surgeries, and 2.9 billion cut from the foreign aid budget. On a global
    scale, Unicef has forecasted 1.2 million child deaths as a result of
    lockdowns, not the virus itself.

    Articles about collateral damage widely use phrases such as “due to the
    pandemic” or “because the government was forced to lockdown”. This is a
    very deliberate line of rhetoric designed to shut down any retrospective >>> analysis of this course of action by conflating the fallout from
    government policy with the effects of the pandemic itself. Before 2020,
    “social distancing” was an alien concept. “Lockdown” was not a word in
    our vocabulary. Face coverings in the community were widely seen as an
    ineffective and possibly counter-intuitive response to an epidemic. One
    year on, we are prohibited from questioning the efficacy of any of these >>> new and extreme ideas, and are largely tricked into believing that these >>> measures were the only possible course of action.

    But there was a choice. The government made that choice. Whether you
    feel that this choice was appropriate or proportional to the risk is not >>> the issue here. At the very least, one has to understand the importance
    of separating collateral damage caused by our measures from the effects
    of the virus itself. Following an initial cost-benefit analysis
    predicting 200,000 deaths as a result of the first lockdown, the
    government seemingly lost all interest in forecasting the collateral
    damage of their pandemic response, presenting their measures as the only >>> viable option.

    Cancer does not cause hair loss. Viruses do not make people homeless

    Even when an independent study predicted the equivalent of 500,000 lives >>> lost to ongoing coronavirus policies, the majority of politicians showed >>> little to no interest. Now that the damage has been done, we have an
    obligation to evaluate the side-effects of the treatment and decide
    whether those effects were proportional to the benefit, not least so
    that we may improve decision-making as and when new viral threats
    emerge. This will not be possible until journalists and MPs abandon the
    transparently manipulative strategy of conflating the cure with the disease.

    Cancer does not cause hair loss. Viruses do not make people homeless. We >>> have just participated, without consent, in the largest medical
    experiment in human history. Are we not entitled, at the very least, to
    a fair and logical evaluation of the outcomes?

    People should ignore Monday’s easing of lockdown and avoid socialising
    indoors in pubs and restaurants to prevent the new Covid-19 variant
    first detected in India sparking a third wave of the disease, health
    experts say.

    A former government chief scientific adviser, a leading public health
    specialist and the union representing Britain’s doctors are urging the
    public to stick to meeting outdoors to reduce the risk of catching or
    spreading the variant.

    Prof Sir Mark Walport, a former director of the Wellcome Trust and a
    chief scientific adviser until 2017, called on the public to be
    cautious. “My personal judgement is that I will do things outside as far >>> as possible,” he said. “My advice is that just because you can do
    something doesn’t necessarily mean you should.”

    ‘Everybody is angry’: Modi under fire over India’s Covid second wave
    Asked by Sophy Ridge on Sky News if that meant he would avoid going
    inside a pub, he replied: “For the moment, yes.”

    Martin McKee, a professor of public health at the London School of
    Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, backed Walport. He said: “Based on the
    precautionary principle and on the experience in earlier waves, I am
    very concerned. Personally I will not be going indoors in bars or
    restaurants for some time.”

    Under the rule changes in England groups of six people or two households >>> will be allowed to meet indoors in homes, pubs, cafes and restaurants
    for the first time since last autumn. Rules will also be relaxed in
    Wales and most of Scotland.

    The British Medical Association, however, also recommended that people
    keep meeting outside for the time being because the of threat posed by
    the new variant.

    “We are urging the public, and young people in particular, to take a
    cautious approach to social and physical contact, to continue practising >>> ‘hands, face, space’ and to meet outdoors wherever possible,” said Dr
    Richard Jarvis, the co-chair of the BMA’s public health committee.

    “People must look at their own personal risk and adjust their activities >>> accordingly. We are asking people to take a cautious approach as we
    enter the next stage of lockdown.”

    Cases linked to the variant first detected in India more than doubled in >>> a week from 520 to 1,313, the most recent official figures show. Bolton, >>> Blackburn, Erewash in Derbyshire and Moray in Scotland have been among
    the initial hotspots, but cases are now being detected all over the
    country, including in places such as London, Essex, Hertfordshire and
    Cambridge.

    The health secretary, Matt Hancock, has said that the variant could
    “spread like wildfire” among unvaccinated groups. It is likely to
    replace the Kent variant as the dominant strain of coronavirus across
    the UK, he added. The government’s Scientific Advisory Group on
    Emergencies fears the new strain could be 40 to 50% more transmissible
    and, if it is, “would lead to a substantial resurgence in
    hospitalisations [similar to, or larger than, previous peaks]”.

    Hancock defended Boris Johnson’s decision to let Monday’s easing of
    limits on social contact go ahead. Uncertainty about how transmissible
    the new variant is means that “it’s appropriate to continue down the
    road map, but people need to be cautious and careful”, he said.

    Johnson himself said people should “take this next step with a heavy
    dose of caution” and called for an increased uptake of twice-weekly
    testing and vaccination. “I urge everyone to be cautious and take
    responsibility when enjoying new freedoms today in order to keep the
    virus at bay,” he said.

    “We are keeping the spread of the variant first identified in India
    under close observation and taking swift action where infection rates
    are rising,” he said on the eve of restrictions lifting.

    “The current data does not indicate unsustainable pressure on the NHS
    and our extraordinary vaccination programme will accelerate, with second >>> doses being bought forward to give the most vulnerable maximum protection.” >>>
    Some members of the Independent Sage group of medical and scientific
    experts said, however, that the new variant’s upward trajectory was so
    worrying that the prime minister should have delayed the relaxation.

    Surge testing is under way in areas with the highest number of cases
    linked to the new variant and expanded vaccination is being used to
    immunise as many people as possible. A new vaccination centre is opening >>> in Bolton in the next few days to cope with demand. Ministers could
    again resort to local lockdowns to try to reduce infections in hotspots, >>> Hancock said.

    Saffron Cordery, the deputy chief executive of NHS Providers, which
    represents hospital trusts in England, said: “It is reassuring that the
    spike in cases isn’t translating into unmanageable pressures on the NHS
    at the moment, but we cannot afford to be complacent.”

    Comments from Hancock on Sunday that hospitalisations in Bolton mainly
    involve people eligible for the vaccine who have not taken one have
    provoked some internal disquiet among Conservative MPs, who privately
    say ministers should not delay lifting restrictions to protect those who >>> have declined vaccination.

    The infection rate in Bolton stands at 254.9 per 100,000, more than ten
    times the national average. Mark Logan, the Conservative MP for Bolton
    North East, said the town had endured far longer restrictions than
    almost anywhere in the country because of local lockdowns that began
    last year, and demanded that everyone over 18 be vaccinated before the
    end of May.

    Hancock denied that Johnson was too slow to ban flights into the UK from >>> India. It was only added to the red list of high-risk countries from
    which travel is banned on 23 April, two weeks after its neighbour
    Pakistan. Critics, including Labour, say Johnson’s refusal to impose a
    ban sooner was linked to his planned trade mission to India to meet his
    counterpart, Narendra Modi, allowing thousands of potentially infectious >>> people to arrive in Britain.

    A Channel 4 Dispatches documentary on Monday will also raise new
    questions about the government’s pandemic response. In it Prof Sharon
    Peacock of Public Health England, who runs the UK programme for tracing
    variants and is a member of Sage, denies that the emergence of the Kent
    variant late last year was down to bad luck. That variant led to the
    second wave of Covid and led to many thousands of deaths.

    It also examines why Johnson invited Prof Sunetra Gupta and Prof Carl
    Heneghan, two prominent academics who had argued against blanket
    lockdowns, to join a zoom call with him and Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, >>> last September, around the time he was being advised by Sage to
    instigate an immediate two-week lockdown – a meeting first disclosed by
    the Guardian.

    The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, meanwhile, may
    again allow under-40s to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine in response to
    the threat from the new variant, the JCVI member Prof Adam Finn said on
    Sunday. That age group have been advised to have either the
    Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna jabs because the risk of blood clots.

    places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding

    Restrictions reimposed as virus resurges in much of Asia
    4637
    By HUIZHONG WU and ZEN SOO, Associated Press
    2021/05/19 17:49
    Social distancing on the subway in Singapore

    TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Taxi drivers are starved for customers, weddings
    are suddenly canceled, schools are closed, and restaurant service is
    restricted across much of Asia as the coronavirus makes a resurgence in
    countries where it had seemed to be well under control.

    Sparsely populated Mongolia has seen its death toll soar from 15 to 233, >>> while Taiwan, considered a major success in battling the virus, has
    recorded more than 1,000 cases since last week and placed over 600,000
    people in two-week medical isolation.

    Hong Kong and Singapore have postponed a quarantine-free travel bubble
    for a second time after an outbreak in Singapore of uncertain origin.
    China, which has all but stamped out local infections, has seen new
    cases apparently linked to contact with people arriving from abroad.

    The resurgence hasn’t come close to the carnage wrought in India and
    parts of Europe, but it is a keen reminder that the virus remains
    resilient, despite mask mandates, case tracing, mass testing and wider
    deployment of the newest weapon against it — vaccinations.

    That’s setting back efforts to get social and economic life back to
    normal, particularly in schools and sectors like the hospitality
    industry that are built on public contact.

    In Taiwan, the surge is being driven by the more easily transmissible
    variant first identified in Britain, according to Chen Chien-jen, an
    epidemiologist and the island’s former vice president, who led the
    highly praised pandemic response last year.

    Complicating matters are some senior citizens who frequent slightly racy >>> “tea salons” in Taipei’s Wanhua neighborhood. They accounted for about
    375 of the new cases as of Tuesday, Chen said. The tea shops are known
    for providing adult entertainment with singing and dancing.

    “These seniors, when they go to these places, want to keep it veiled,”
    Chen said. “When we are conducting the investigation, they may not be
    honest.”

    In Wanhua, normally a bustling area with food stalls, shops and
    entertainment venues, the Huaxi night market and historic Longshan
    Buddhist temple are closed.

    Kao Yu-chieh, who runs a breakfast shop in the area, said business is
    down at least 50% since last week.

    Cab driver Wang Hsian Jhong said he hasn’t had a customer in three days. >>> “Everyone is affected. This is a Taiwan-wide problem. We have to get
    through it,” he said, puffing on a cigarette on a street in Wanhua.

    The island has shut all schools and restrictions previously only in the
    Taipei area were expanded island-wide Wednesday: Restaurants, gyms and
    other public venues were closed, and gatherings of more than five people >>> indoors and more than 10 people outdoors are banned.

    Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has sought to reassure a public that is
    reverting to panic-buying and shunning public places.

    “We will continue to strengthen our medical capacity,” Tsai said, adding >>> that vaccines are arriving from abroad.

    Malaysia unexpectedly imposed a one-month lockdown through June 7,
    spooked by a sharp rise in cases, more-infectious variants and weak
    public compliance with health measures.

    It was the second nationwide lockdown in just over a year and came after >>> the country’s cases shot up fourfold since January; it’s now more than
    479,000 and 1,994 people have died, a sum also up by four times from
    January. Interstate travel and social activities are banned, schools are >>> shut, and restaurants can provide only takeout service. The government
    has warned that hospitals have almost maxed out their capacity to take
    new coronavirus cases.

    Singapore has imposed stringent social distancing measures until June
    13, restricting public gatherings to two people and banning dine-in
    service at restaurants.

    That came after the number of coronavirus infections of untraceable
    origin rose to 48 cases in the past week, from 10 cases the week before. >>> Singapore had previously been held up as a role model after keeping the
    virus at bay for months.

    Schools moved online after students in several institutions tested
    positive. Wedding receptions are no longer allowed, and funerals are
    capped at 20 people.

    For wedding planner Michelle Lau, at least seven clients either canceled >>> or postponed weddings meant to take place over the next month. Other
    couples have opted for a simple ceremony without a reception, she said.

    Janey Chang, who runs two Latin dance studios in Singapore, says that
    the tougher restrictions have drastically reduced class size.

    “We are taking on fewer students, but the costs such as rent remain the
    same,” Chang said. “Whether we can continue to operate is highly
    dependent on the number of coronavirus cases.”

    Hong Kong has responded to fresh outbreaks by increasing the quarantine
    requirement from 14 to 21 days for unvaccinated travelers arriving from
    “high-risk” countries, including Singapore, Malaysia and Japan, and,
    farther afield, Argentina, Italy, the Netherlands and Kenya.

    China has set up checkpoints at toll booths, airports and railway
    stations in Liaoning province, where new cases were reported this week.
    Travelers must have proof of a recent negative virus test, and mass
    testing was ordered in part of Yingkou, a port city with shipping
    connections to more than 40 countries.

    Thailand reported 35 deaths, the highest since the outbreak started, on
    Tuesday, and an additional 29 on Wednesday. That brought its number of
    fatalities to 678, of which 584 have been reported in the latest wave.
    About three-quarters of Thailand’s more than 116,000 cases have been
    recorded since the beginning of April.

    Thailand had about 7,100 cases in all of last year in what was regarded
    as a success story.

    The resurgence has posed difficult choices for governments, particularly >>> in poorer nations where lockdown restrictions can increase financial
    suffering for those already living on the edge of starvation.

    In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte has eased a lockdown in
    the bustling capital and adjacent provinces to fight economic recession
    and hunger but has still barred public gatherings this month, when many
    Roman Catholic festivals are held.

    COVID-19 infections started to spike in March to some of the worst
    levels in Asia, surging beyond 10,000 a day and prompting Duterte to
    impose the lockdown in and around Manila in April. The Philippines has
    reported more than 1.1 million infections with 19,372 deaths, though the >>> surge has begun to ease.

    Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said the partial resumption of
    economic activities, increased noncompliance with restrictions and
    inadequate tracing of people exposed to the virus combined to spark the
    steep rise in infections.

    Experts said the delivery of vaccines, however delayed and small in
    amount, also fostered false confidence the pandemic might be ending.

    The only healthy way to stop the pandemic in Asia and other
    places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding
    out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who among us

    Argentina will tighten pandemic lockdown measures to combat a severe
    second COVID-19 wave, President Alberto Fernandez said on Thursday,
    underscoring concern as daily cases and deaths have broken records over
    the last week.

    The strict "circuit-breaker" measures will come into force on Saturday
    and last until May 31. They include school and non-essential commerce
    closures and the banning of social, religious and sporting events in the >>> nation of 45 million people.

    "We are living the worst moment since the pandemic began," Fernandez
    said. "Today as never before we must all take care of ourselves to avoid >>> all the losses that we can."

    Citizens who are not classed as essential workers will be allowed to be
    out close to their homes between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.; otherwise, they must >>> stay at home.


    The restrictions come as the government accelerates a vaccination
    campaign that has lagged ambitious initial plans. So far, only 4.7% of
    the population has been fully inoculated and 18.4% has received at least >>> one dose, according to a Reuters analysis.

    Fernandez also announced an economic rescue package for sectors
    worst-hit by the pandemic, which has exacerbated a crisis that has
    plagued the country for the past three years and left millions of
    Argentines in poverty.

    Argentina posted 35,884 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday after hitting a
    record high 39,652 on Wednesday. Total infections number some 3.45
    million, which puts the country ahead of hard-hit Brazil on a per capita >>> basis and has pushed hospital intensive care units to near-saturation.
    There have been 72,699 confirmed deaths.

    Why national attitudes about science matter for vaccine acceptance
    Views on vaccination are coloured by an individual’s stance on science — >>> and by their society’s stance, too.

    Ample evidence shows that people tend to trust vaccines if they also
    trust science in general...

    We should trust only the truth instead of it's surrogate, science,
    which is simply "the process of searching for the truth" because
    science is fallible while the truth (John 14:6) is perfect:

    http://T3WiJ.com

    Science is indeed a process.

    There is a subtle, yet important, distinction, between trusting a
    process and trusting a person who claimed to have followed the process.

    Those engaged in science (i.e. scientists) are **not** followers of
    science. Science, unlike the truth (John 14:6), is not a person.
    Moreover, only followers of the truth can be successful scientists.

    LONDON: Only 15 people out of almost 60,000 who attended nine pilot
    events for mass gatherings have since tested positive for coronavirus,
    British health officials said Friday (May 21).

    The government allowed limited crowds at the events - including two FA
    Cup games, the World Snooker Championship and the Brit Awards - over
    recent weeks to assess their impact on COVID-19 transmission.

    The country has since March been gradually easing its strict lockdown,
    with 22,000 football fans permitted inside Wembley Stadium last weekend
    for the FA Cup final.

    Officials are now working to trace just 15 people to have tested
    positive following the nine official test events, with that level of
    infection in line with case numbers for the broader population.

    "The aim of our world-leading events research programme is to examine
    the risk of COVID-19 transmission at large events and explore how crowds >>> can be welcomed back in bigger numbers safely," a government spokesman said.

    "The pilots have been designed in a scientifically controlled way to
    reduce the risk of transmission for attendees.

    "We are working closely with NHS Test and Trace to ensure everyone can
    be traced following a positive test," the spokesman added, referring to
    Britain's state-run National Health Service.

    The United Kingdom has been one of the hardest-hit countries in Europe
    by the pandemic, but has been able to ease lockdown measures in part
    thanks to a highly successful vaccination campaign.

    The government is hoping to lift remaining restrictions on Jun 21, but
    doubts have emerged after numerous spikes in the Indian variant of the
    virus across the country.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to make an announcement on the
    next stage of the relaxations next week.

    The only healthy way to stop the pandemic in the U.K. and other
    places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding
    out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who among us
    are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in
    order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John 15:12) for them to
    call their doctor and self-quarantine per their doctor in hopes of

    and others like the P.1, B.1.135, B.1.351, B.1.429, B.1.525, &

    You know something is wrong with the public health messaging in the U.S. >>> when a tow truck driver is giving out better information on Covid-19
    transmission than the WHO or CDC. His words of wisdom to me, when he
    came to tow my car back to the dealer earlier this spring, was that if
    you’re indoors with people and one of them is infected, you can still
    get infected even if everyone is wearing a mask. And if you’re outdoors
    and someone is infected, you’re probably not going to get it.
    He was speaking from direct experience, having done essential work
    through the worst of the pandemic. He said he’d seen co-workers get sick >>> and that his boss had died.
    And he was right. The SARS-CoV2 virus can travel on very small particles >>> that disperse quickly outdoors but can build up inside. Indoors, these
    particles can affect people who stay more than six feet away. And the
    hodgepodge of masks Americans have adopted may provide some protection,
    but they don’t render an unsafe situation safe.
    Though scientists have been discussing airborne transmission for months, >>> it was only this week that the WHO and CDC made this official. With the
    vaccine rollout still in its early days globally, those officials should >>> follow up this belated admission with guidance unvaccinated people can
    use to minimize their risk.

    Clarifying the word “airborne” would be a good place to start. The
    scientific meaning isn’t the same as its common meaning, and so people
    may wrongly assume that outdoor air is dangerous. As a recent article in >>> the New York Times reported, news about the concept of airborne
    transmission was compelling people in India to close their windows
    rather than open them.
    Indeed, reports on airborne transmission can be unnecessarily
    panic-inducing, implying that risk is nearly unavoidable, and that
    there’s no safe distance from our fellow humans.
    It’s true that the virus can build up in indoor environments in a way
    that can still pose a risk even if people wear masks and stay more than
    six feet apart. But that risk can be mitigated by opening windows and
    wearing N95 masks, and by keeping exposure short. A quick trip to the
    supermarket is going to be safer than a long meal in a restaurant or an
    exercise class. And because the virus is primarily traveling on smaller
    particles, the risk is tiny outdoors, even if someone passes within six
    feet.
    Indoor restaurants, therefore, are not rendered safe by rules that
    dictate people put on a mask when they’re not eating, or by most of the
    plexiglass dividers between tables. Opening windows does help, as would
    offering a warning that unvaccinated people are taking risks by dining
    inside.
    This has long been known — though officials were slow to admit it. Last
    May, I interviewed Muge Cevik, an infectious disease specialist at the
    University of St. Andrews in the U.K. She had been collecting all the
    data she could find from contact tracing around the world to see how the >>> disease was actually being transmitted. There were reports that
    so-called superspreading events had happened primarily in offices, at
    business conferences, in retail stores where people lingered, and indoor >>> restaurants. Beyond superspreading, there was lots of transmission in homes.
    She found that the amount of time people spent in a closed environment
    matters. And the greater the number of people in an enclosed space, the
    higher the odds that one of them is contagious.
    That’s why in Japan, people have long been warned to avoid the three Cs
    — crowds, closed spaces and close contact. Useful public health messages >>> don’t need to be complicated.
    It’s not too late to do a better job on public health messaging and
    prioritizing. In countries where people are returning to offices and
    other workspaces, ventilation should be a higher priority than
    sanitizing surfaces. In India, where the pandemic is raging, officials
    should stop wasting resources on drones spraying disinfectant on parks.

    latest data, which will help inform us what measures we can take around
    certification".

    Asked to explain a delay from the PM's initial timetable, the spokesman

    Both the review of social distancing rules and work on the possible use
    of coronavirus certification are due to be completed by the fourth and

    restrictions, which is scheduled for 21 June.

    The Wuhan Virus Origin Debacle: A “Bias Makes You Stupid” Classic
    MAY 27, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL
    Times Wuhan hack

    I periodically am asked why I insist on referring to the pandemic virus, >>> which unquestionably originated in China, almost certainly in the Wuhan
    province, and was allowed to spread world-wide in part by cover-up
    activities by the Chinese government, “The Wuhan virus.” After all, the
    edict came down from our politically-correct betters that this term was
    “racist,” despite the fact that it conveyed useful and accurate
    information that the technical term “COVID” does not.

    Actually, COVID stands for "COronaVirus Infectious Disease" which
    conveys the "useful and accurate information" that an infectious
    coronavirus is causing disease.

    "The Wuhan virus" conveys only geographical origin which is useless in
    the setting of an active pandemic.

    Once a wild horse has escaped from the barn, it really is too late to
    close the door at the geographical origin.

    I typically reply that I call it the Wuhan virus because that’s where it >>> came from, and virtually every other virus has been named for its place
    of origin (sometimes inaccurately).

    If inaccurate, then it's not the place of origin by definition.

    Moreover, HIV is a glaring example of a virus that is not named after
    its place of origin.

    Other glaring examples include measles, smallpox, chickenpox, HPV,
    HSV, RSV, and SV40.

    Lyme disease, Legionnaire's disease...

    ... are **non-viral** diseases so that they would not serve as
    "glaring examples" of non-geographically-named **viral** diseases
    here.

    Ignorance blinds virtually anyone.

    Moreover, if it's proven that COVID-19 is the tragic result of SARS
    vaccine research gone awry, laboratory safety standards will have to
    be upgraded to prevent re-occurrence and our global lesson would be
    that vaccine research comes with not only high cost but also high
    risk.

    correct.

    I am simply wonderfully hungry ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) and
    hope you, Michael, also have a healthy appetite too.

    The only healthy way to stop the pandemic in the U.S. and other
    places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding
    out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who among us

    order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John 15:12) for them to
    call their doctor and self-quarantine per their doctor in hopes of
    stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the best while

    and others like the P.1, B.1.135, B.1.351, B.1.429, B.1.525, &

    Back at the start of the first lockdown, all those aeons ago, a doctor
    gave me a piece of advice. “Don’t get ill, Allison,” he said.

    “But I’m not really at risk from Covid, am I?”

    “Forget about Covid,” he said, “Just don’t get ill from anything else
    for a year or two.”

    I thought he was joking. I didn’t know. Well, I do now.

    If you didn’t have the virus, good luck with getting hospital treatment. >>> The plunge in the number of urgent referrals from primary care belies
    the outrageous, backside-covering claim by GPs’ leaders that all their
    members were fully available for patients. They so weren’t. Yet, as the
    fog of pandemic panic lifts and the scale of devastation becomes clear,
    the main thing is that no blame must attach to our sainted NHS. It’s the >>> patients’ fault, you see.

    I can guarantee I won’t have been the only one to react with spluttering >>> disbelief to a story in this newspaper which began: “Cancer patients who >>> decided not to seek treatment during lockdown are now overwhelming
    emergency units at hospitals across the country.”

    Decided? What sort of decision would that be, then?

    Presumably it went something like this: “I had this funny spot on my
    neck back in May last year and I sent a picture to my GP, like he asked
    me to. He said it was fine and prescribed me some steroid cream. It
    didn’t get any better, actually it got really nasty, but I decided not
    to have it seen. Well, actually, I couldn’t because no doctor would
    offer me a face-to-face appointment. Last week, I finally went to A&E,
    in despair because the spot was bulbous and bleeding, and they said I
    needed a scan. Turns out it’s melanoma and it’s spread everywhere. They
    say I can have palliative care. Which means I’m going to die, doesn’t
    it? Because I ‘decided’ not to seek treatment.”

    Is this really the disingenuous, nothing-to-do-with-us-guv line that the >>> NHS intends to take as tens of thousands of advanced cancers come to
    light? The Government requisitioned private hospitals at a cost of
    £2billion, but clueless NHS managers barely got their act together to
    use them for non-Covid patients. Many radiography and radiotherapy
    departments were off limits for 12 months but, apparently, it’s the
    British people who are at fault for overwhelming A&E today, with their
    wretched tumours and their annoying pain.

    According to Chris Hopson, chief executive of NHS Providers, this
    “striking” surge in non-Covid patients means some hospital trusts are
    already at 97 per cent capacity and may struggle to cope with a rise in
    virus cases if the full lifting of restrictions goes ahead on June 21.
    Meanwhile, the Prime Minister is under mounting pressure from scientists >>> to postpone Freedom Day because of the allegedly worrying advance of the >>> Indian variant, with one respiratory consultant painting an apocalyptic
    picture of “mini Covid volcanoes erupting at hospitals around the
    country, which are threatening to explode”.

    Here we go, all aboard the Excuses Roundabout. Because lockdown created
    a healthcare disaster, the NHS is in danger of not coping, so we need
    more lockdown to protect the NHS. Can anyone spot the flaw in this
    circular logic?

    If we follow Mr Hopson’s reasoning, and that of sundry academics who are >>> eagerly buying shares in a third wave, the Government should endlessly
    defer the lifting of lockdown. Just in case a few unvaccinated people
    who get sick with Covid need to go to hospital, which will be a problem, >>> because the hospital will be nearly full with all the people who
    couldn’t get treated during the first lockdown. Have you got that, Marjorie?

    One hesitates to use anything as crazy as reason or facts to counter
    this self-serving scaremongering, but here goes. The Indian variant may
    be more transmissible, but is no more lethal than its predecessors.
    Yesterday, there were zero Covid deaths in the UK, compared to a typical >>> daily death toll from cancer of 450; tragically, that number will soon
    be much higher because of medical neglect during lockdown.

    Hospital occupancy is perfectly normal for the time of year. Covid
    patients are taking up only one per cent of all beds, and that number
    continues its steady decline.

    As for those “mini Covid volcanoes erupting at hospitals around the
    country”, in the so-called “hotspots”, numbers are still low. There have >>> been minor increases in virus patients in Blackburn and Bedford
    hospitals in the past few days, but Bolton, previously the
    worst-affected, is starting to tick down. Those in the 35-to-44 age
    group make up the bulk of admissions and they don’t tend to get as sick. >>> If it’s mainly young people who are now getting Covid, as the scientists >>> shriek, that’s encouraging; they are far less at harm from the virus and >>> will build up valuable immunity to protect any unvaccinated elders.

    So there is no cause for concern, no sign of that Third Wave. There is
    certainly no reason for the PM to postpone the lifting of all
    restrictions on June 21.

    What a devastating blow to national morale that would be. While fretting >>> over rising “cases” (meaningless, unless accompanied by actual
    symptoms), some scientists have shown a horrifying disregard for the
    collateral damage to people’s health and well-being.

    “We need to stop obsessing about June 21 and start worrying about where
    we are ‘now’ and how we can get cases down,” tweeted Professor Christina >>> Pagel, a health research mathematician. On the contrary, Professor. You
    need to stop obsessing about phantasmal cases and start worrying about
    the real people who are going to die as a consequence of your beloved
    lockdown.

    Here’s what Linda, who works in an oncology unit, wrote to me: “I work
    in PET/CT imaging. Before the pandemic, we’d get patients with newly
    diagnosed cancers and we’d scan to see how far the cancer had spread.
    Most were in the early stages. We’re now getting an increasing number of >>> patients who were unable to access GP care and are presenting with
    advanced cancers. Some with moles that, with no face-to-face
    consultations, had been prescribed steroid creams and they’ve turned out >>> to be melanomas. We also have people whose treatment was stopped during
    lockdown and we’re rescanning them before they resume treatments and
    their cancer has spread. This means more aggressive treatment with more
    side-effects. Unfortunately, frontline workers like me are afraid to
    speak out.”

    While the NHS panjandrums fret about how to protect their service from
    its patients, while the scientists demand just a few more
    weeks/months/years of masks and social distancing, it’s people like
    Linda who are staring catastrophe in the face.

    Yes, it’s true, there are mini-volcanoes erupting at hospitals around
    the country, but not because of Covid. From Orthopaedics to Oncology,
    there is a state of national emergency. I pray that Boris holds his
    nerve and lifts all restrictions on June 21. How much more evidence does >>> it take? It’s lockdown that will be the death of us.

    I am sick of protecting the NHS; let the NHS do its job and protect the
    sick.

    COVID-19: Nearly half of UK adults going through pandemic job loss are

    Why you can trust Sky News
    Nearly half of adults in the UK going through job loss are drinking more >>> than they would have done before the pandemic, a new survey suggests.

    Research by the charity Drinkaware shows 49% of people who have been
    made redundant - or are in the process of being made redundant - are
    consuming more alcohol than they did before March 2020.

    This is up from 38% since December, the poll of 4,000 people between 27
    and 30 April showed.

    The figures could be set to increase next month when the government's
    furlough scheme is reduced - before it ends completely on 30 September.

    Nationally drinking levels have gone up across the board, with people
    consuming 20% more on average.

    Two thirds (66%) who are drinking high-risk levels of alcohol, which is
    more than 34 units a week for women and 50 for men, are drinking more
    than they did before the pandemic.

    Drinkaware is calling for alcohol harm to be included in public health
    strategies, as trends showed an "increased polarisation" in drinking
    habits by the end of 2020, it said.

    Its evidence and impact director Annabelle Bonus added: "Our survey
    shows that there are clear differences in the drinking habits across
    certain groups of the UK population, signalling a clear need for
    targeted action and appropriate support.

    "It is concerning that the proportion of adults drinking more since the
    start of the pandemic has increased from December to April and we must
    ensure that people drinking more since lockdown began get the help and
    support that they need if we are to reverse this trend."

    Unethical Quote Of The Pandemic: Dr. Anthony Fauci
    JUNE 3, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL


    Above is Dr. Fauci during his baseball game theater last year, when he
    went out to the mound at Nationals Park to throw out the first pitch,
    and wore a facemask, though he was outdoors, there were no fans in the
    stands, and nobody was within a hundred feet of him. Then, once he
    thought he was off-camera, he took off his mask while sitting right next >>> to two friends who were wearing theirs, for some reason. Thanks in great >>> part to Fauci’s misinformation and pandemic fear-mongering, when I
    attended a Nats game this year I was required to wear a mask between
    bites of my hotdog, again despite there being nobody near me. What fun. >>> Yet here is Fauci’s quote:



    This email, one of thousands being perused after a Freedom of
    Information Act dump, demonstrates that the CDC official advising the
    Trump administration and treated like a benign, all-knowing God of
    Science during the first year of the pandemic was and is a manipulative, >>> two-faced, untrustworthy hack.

    This should not shock anyone at this point, though Fauci worshipers,
    like mask worshipers (my sister wears two, in her car alone, still) will >>> probably be in lifetime denial. Oh, heck, let me digress to an example.
    My woke-diseased baseball writer/ lawyer colleague, Craig Calcaterra,
    who is peddling a substack baseball commentary newsletter that I would
    eagerly subscribe to if he could resist off-topic progressive madness,
    wrote today in part,


    “Ohio’s mask mandate, and all of its other COVID protocols, expired at
    midnight on Tuesday night. In response, two prominent Republicans —
    Ohio’s Attorney General and a man running for U.S. Senate — made a big
    performative point of posting videos of themselves burning paper masks.
    ….these are the people who, whenever there is a defense appropriations
    bill to vote on or a war to fight, talk solemnly about the need for
    sacrifice in order to keep Americans safe. Yet when asked to do the most >>> simple and basic of things — wear a mask to keep from spreading a
    disease that has killed millions in a little over a year — they act as
    if they were forced into bondage and subjected to intolerable cruelties. >>> I’d say that the Republican Party is full of the immature diaper filling >>> babies, but that’d be an insult to babies who, most of whom eventually
    tire of throwing tantrums and just deal or go to sleep or something.“

    And I’d say that Craig should 1) stick to baseball, 2) pay attention,
    and 3) write “bias makes you stupid” a thousand times on a blackboard.
    There was never convincing evidence that the masks “saved lives.” It was >>> an “it’s better than nothing” measure at best, and it was not “simple
    and basic.” It made basic communication difficult, ruined social
    interaction, made otherwise intelligent people paranoid and kind
    miserable, and was weaponized by the Left, Craig’s friends, to get the
    public used to giving up basic liberties to Big Brother’s experts, when
    Big Brother and the experts secretly ignored their own edicts because
    laws are for the little people.

    Meanwhile, medical experts will continue to choose to wear their
    "personal protective equipment" (aka PPE), which invariably includes a
    facemask, whenever they are around others who are possibly infected
    with a contagious pathogen. This is done out of wisdom that comes from
    front-line experience instead of from edicts.

    Gee, that was a long digression! Back to Fauci and masks.

    Ethics Alarms dinged the mask scam in December of 2020, almost 7 months
    ago, in this post. Yet the sainted doctor flipped again, just last
    month, contradicting the CDC and saying that continuing to wear a face
    mask, even after most restrictions have been lifted, could “diminish the >>> likelihood that you’ll spread these respiratory borne diseases.”

    In the CDC context of everyone being **fully** COVID vaccinated, the
    expectation is that the increased likelihood of spread of the COVID-19
    coronavirus among maskless folks would be of no significant
    consequence. Dr. Fauci's "saying that continuing to wear a face
    mask, even after most restrictions have been lifted, could 'diminish
    the likelihood that you’ll spread these respiratory borne diseases'"
    is in the context of **fully** COVID vaccinated folks not wanting to
    possibly spread this "respiratory borne (COVID) disease" to their more
    vulnerable not-fully COVID vaccinated neighbors, friends & family
    because doing the latter could result in significantly tragic
    consequences.

    How could fully vaccinated folks spread COVID-19?

    Just as the fully vaccinated folks at the New York Yankees did
    reportedly spread COVID-19 among themselves. Thankfully, their being
    COVID vaccinated kept them from needing to be hospitalized thereby
    showing that their vaccination still has value despite also showing
    that their spreading the contagion is still possible.

    Alameda County’s new COVID death toll is 25% lower than thought
    County health officials reviewed COVID-19 death records and found 411
    cases that were "clearly not" caused by the disease.

    A quarter of all deaths previously attributed to COVID-19 in Alameda
    County weren’t actually caused by the coronavirus, the Alameda County
    Public Health Department announced today.

    That puts the county’s new official COVID-19 death toll at 1,223, down >>>from 1,634.

    The 25% decrease—or 411 cases—is due to the fact that COVID “wasn’t a
    direct cause” of death in these cases, according to county health
    officials.

    County officials decided to revise the numbers after they reviewed
    guidance from the California Department of Public Health about how to
    classify deaths as being caused by COVID-19. The new count more
    accurately reflects how many people died as a direct result of, or
    complications from, a COVID-19 infection.


    “There are definitely people who died from reasons that were clearly not >>> caused by COVID,”

    said Neetu Balram, a spokesperson for the Alameda County Public Health
    Department.

    Balram couldn’t give specifics about the true cause of death for the 411 >>> people removed from the COVID-19 data, but she said the cases were
    identified after reviewing codes entered by county coroners into
    CalREDIE, the state’s database for disease reporting and surveillance.
    Alameda County uses CalREDIE data to populate its COVID dashboard.

    Here’s what else is going on in Oakland:
    Oakland considers banning ADUs in the hills to avoid fire danger
    Where Oakland kids and families can get free food this summer
    The last dance is still far off for Oakland’s Tacos El Ultimo Baile
    Dr. Amesh Adalja, an infectious disease expert and senior scholar at
    Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, told The Oaklandside that
    although some adjustments are to be expected, 25% “seems high.” Adalja
    said he has never seen this big of an adjustment in a death count with
    other infectious diseases.

    Nicholas Moss, Alameda County’s health officer, said the deaths removed >>>from the COVID rolls occurred throughout the pandemic. He hopes the
    county’s decision to adjust the numbers will show people that the county >>> is dedicated to accurately reporting the impact of the virus.


    “We knew any change like this would have raised some eyebrows,” Moss
    told The Oaklandside. “Nothing about this changes our policy decisions
    now or during the height of the pandemic.”

    The county’s original method was to attribute a death to COVID-19 if the >>> coroner or medical provider (like a hospital) listed someone as being
    positive for the coronavirus at the time of their death.

    Balram said the state’s definition was different: A death can only be
    attributed to COVID-19 if the coroner or medical provider can show that
    the person died “as a direct result of COVID-19, with COVID-19 as a
    contributing cause of death, or in whom death caused by COVID-19 could
    not be ruled out.” The state came up with this definition late last year >>> in the middle of the pandemic, after Alameda County was already using
    its method.

    “Obviously our definition was broader than the state’s,” Balram said,
    adding the 411 deaths being removed were “clearly not COVID.”

    In announcing the changes to the data, the county used the example of a
    resident who tested positive for COVID-19 but died in a car accident.
    Under the original definition, that person’s death would have been
    included in the total number of COVID-19 deaths. Balram said she
    couldn’t say if that actual scenario played out in Alameda County.


    “When the state implemented these guidelines, Alameda County became
    aware of the conflicting definitions and made a plan to conduct the
    update when cases and deaths stabilized,” the Alameda County Public
    Health Department said in a statement Friday.

    Prior to the update Friday, the Alameda County COVID dashboard showed
    1,687 deaths, a tally that reflects not only the county’s old definition >>> of a COVID-related death, but also any new deaths added to rolls since
    May 23. Deaths are often reported at different intervals and rarely on
    the day they actually occur.

    Throughout the pandemic, the county’s data on COVID-19 deaths has shown
    much smaller fluctuations caused by a variety of factors, such as if a
    person died in Alameda County but didn’t live there.

    Alameda County’s COVID dashboard contains several disclaimers, including >>> that recent numbers, including infections and deaths, could change. That >>> includes cases that move from “suspected” to “confirmed,” and dates of
    when a death has been reported to the day it actually occurred.

    “Death data may be corrected from time to time as information about the
    cause of death or the County of residence of the deceased person are
    finalized,” a warning on the COVID dashboard reads.


    Alameda County’s recounting of its COVID cases are yet another example
    of potential flaws in real-time data reporting involving several
    agencies during a global public health crisis.

    Moss, who has more experience with the HIV/AIDS epidemic, said that data >>> isn’t computed until six months after the previous year. COVID-19 data,
    he said, is entered daily, giving number-crunchers less time to ensure
    the data being reported meets universal standards.

    “It’s not an excuse. It’s a reality,” Moss said. “Unfortunately it took
    us longer to get to this point than we would have liked.”

    and other places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    1. Speaking of masks, Dr. Anthony Fauci just took the lead in the race
    to be the Ethics Alarms Asshole of the Year. Yesterday, smirking,
    untrustworthy and partisan MSNBC talking head Rachel Maddow hosted Fauci >>> on her program, and in an example of the hard-hitting, objective
    journalism for which she has become famous, fawned all over him in an
    interview that began with the assumption that poor Fauci is being
    cruelly ganged up upon by right-wing Neanderthals. Nah, there’s no
    mainstream media bias! Her very first question signaled I’m on your
    side, poor baby!: “First of all, let me just ask if I’m being fair. Am I >>> building you up to be thicker-skinned about this than you are? You’re
    actually worried about this new sort of re-upping of attacks on you?”

    Given his cue, Fauci responded in part, “Well, I’m concerned about that
    more because it’s really very much an attack on science…What is the
    thread going through, what’s happening now, is very much an anti-science >>> approach. So that’s a big, big difference. I mean, it is what it is, I’m >>> a public figure, I’m going to take the arrows and the swings, but
    they’re just, they’re fabricated.”

    It could have been worse, I guess; he might have said that the criticism >>> of him was racist. His despicable answer settles any questions about
    Fauci’s character in my mind; he’s a manipulative creep and an ethics
    villain. “Attack on science” !? We have smoking gun proof that Fauci was >>> mistaken about his conclusions, frequently lied or withheld information, >>> and had unrevealed conflicts of interest. He allowed himself to be used
    as a partisan weapon to shut down the economy.

    Come to think of it, Fauci’s answer to Maddow was exactly the same as a
    policy-maker-of-color playing the race card. Because he’s a scientist,
    he should be above reproach. No opposition is in good faith or
    justifiable. Any criticism of him is really anti-science bigotry.

    Asshole of the Year.

    Fauci, like other scientists, remains knowledgeable which does happen
    in science, which is "the process of searching for the truth."

    Name-calling pundits, otoh, not so much.

    It’s Time For Jack’s “Believe It Or Not!” Vox Actually Published This
    Essay Three Days Ago!
    JUNE 7, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL
    believe-it-or-not 2

    The article by German Lopez in Vox published on June 4 is more than just >>> head exploding. It is clinical evidence of brain dysfunction or such
    deep cynicism and disrespect for readers that the author and editors
    should be under surveillance. I’m exaggerating only slightly.

    Vox is an openly Leftist website founded by Ezra Klein, who pretended to >>> be an ethical journalist at the Washington Post until his outrageous
    partisan bias became too obvious to deny. Since then it has become the
    kind of news and commentary source, like MSNBC, only taken seriously by
    those who want to hear a slanted, spun, openly partisan view of reality
    that jibes with their unalterable world view. Yet this thing is
    unbelievable even by that standard.

    Over the past week, even the mainstream media has accepted the
    likelihood that its government, and particularly its health authorities
    led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, lied to the public repeatedly, hid evidence
    and covered up facts and documents throughout the pandemic, prime among
    those fact the likely origins of the Wuhan virus (you’ll never guess
    where it came from!) This was a betrayal of trust of epic and historic
    proportions. So what does Vox identify as America’s “biggest pandemic
    failure”?

    We’re not more like China! Or Iran! We don’t automatically bow to
    government restrictions on our liberties. We don’t trust the experts to
    run our lives! Some excerpts:


    “Whenever collective action is called for, Americans don’t do it — or,
    at the very least, don’t do it sufficiently. America is too politicized, >>> fractured, and, above all, individualistic for a collective move to save >>> it. …When the US writes its next pandemic playbook, it can’t ignore this >>> reality. Going forward, tackling a pandemic or collective public health
    threat will require a more individualistic approach to public health —
    one more focused on clear guidance, risk communication, harm reduction,
    and making the safest choice the easiest…The research suggests
    collectivistic places handled at least some aspects of the pandemic
    better. But in a highly individualistic society like the US, maybe such
    approaches are simply unrealistic. After suffering one of the highest
    Covid-19 death tolls among developed nations and in the world, America
    may have to find its own individualized alternative….Many Americans did
    take Covid-19 seriously, social distancing and masking up as federal
    officials and experts asked them to. They have continued to do so, too,
    getting vaccines as soon as they were available. But with Covid-19, just >>> a few people can spoil everything. A few people going out, gathering,
    and failing to wear masks can launch an outbreak across a community…This >>> is a big thing that went wrong with America’s approach to Covid-19. Yes, >>> most people wore masks at least sometimes, and a lot of people made some >>> sacrifice to social distance in the past year. But many others, fueled
    by Trump’s downplaying of the virus and politics in general, rejected
    the precautions, describing them as violations of civil liberties.
    Meanwhile, calls for more collectivistic actions have gone nowhere.
    Lockdowns quickly proved to be unsustainable, with protests and Trump’s
    demands to “LIBERATE!” economies soon leading just about every state in
    the country to reopen too quickly and see a surge in Covid-19 cases.
    Mask mandates were adopted in most states, but not all. Places that did
    keep some restrictions, from social distancing to mask mandates, barely
    enforced them — cops weren’t going around breaking up a lot of house
    parties.…”

    Read the whole thing if your stomach is empty, but that should be
    enough. This is a totalitarian talking, and one that either doesn’t
    realize how repulsive and anti-American his analysis is, or one who is
    confident that his readers dislike democratic society as much as he
    does. Let’s ignore the factual distortions and gaslighting (the U.S.’s
    death toll from the illness cannot be compared to other nations, since
    the CDC guidelines deliberately overcounted pandemic deaths while other
    countries of similar or greater size undercounted; states did not open
    up too soon, they should never have closed down; there is no mention
    anywhere of the huge demonstrations, protests and riots that observed no >>> “social distancing” that the alleged health experts stillendorsed,
    etc.), and just concentrate on the delusional, frightening attitude the
    article represents:

    Despite all the evidence, coming in an avalanche before the article was
    written, that there was every reason to distrust the government and its
    experts since they were making stuff up, ignoring their own advice, and
    generally incompetent, Americans are at fault because they didn’t fall
    into line and love Big Brother, saying, “Thank-you sir, may I have another?”
    The “precautions,” like telling people they could not drive alone in
    their car except for “essential” travel and should wear masks during
    sex, were not irrationally “described” as violations of civil
    liberties, they were violations of civil liberties. Also, in too many
    cases to list, idiotic.
    “A lot of people made some sacrifice to social distance in the past
    year”???? Everybody in the country except the elected officials like
    Nancy Pelosi and the gang of dictatorial Democratic mayors and governors >>> who had guaranteed jobs and income and defied their own edicts whenever
    it was convenient sacrificed. The economy crashed for everybody.
    Children’s education went to hell, or Zoom, which is the same thing. The >>> arts, sports, social activities, and of course businesses—like mine—were >>> crippled—and all based on stuttering guesswork and fakery by
    incompetents posing under the banner of “science.”
    The conclusion of this despicable screed is that, damn it, Americans
    just don’t take orders, or at least not enough of them. “America is an
    individualistic nation, and a progressive administration alone can’t
    change that,” Vox tells us. “One way to fix these problems would be to
    try to make Americans more collectivistic.”

    In other words, less American. Trust Big Brother. Give up individualism
    and liberty for “the greater good.” It gets to be a habit, you know,
    then you’ll get used to it. It’s all for the best.

    “We shouldn’t tolerate another 600,000 American deaths in the next
    pandemic,” Big Brother’s PR flack concludes. That’s one of those
    intellectually dishonest statements that lets you know someone is
    conning you. Recent estimates suggest that the pandemic fatalities have
    been overcounted by as much as 20%. Ok, 500,000. The majority of the
    victims were sick and or elderly. How many of those would have died soon >>> anyway if China’s virus hadn’t intervened? Half? Let’s be conservative
    and say only another 20%. That’s 400,000.

    "Using more recent data from the National Vital Statistics System
    (NVSS), CDC estimated that 545,600 - 660,200 excess deaths occurred in
    the United States during January 26, 2020 - February 27, 2021"

    Ignorance is bliss, which is neither a blessing nor peace.

    How many of those deaths are a reasonable price to pay to preserve
    American values, liberties, and individualism?

    Amid fears of more social distancing, Lloyd Webber insists his new
    musical Cinderella will open on June 25 ‘come hell or high water’
    By

    THEATRE CRITIC

    Andrew Lloyd Webber, the world’s most successful composer of musicals,
    is putting the finishing touches to his first new West End show in five
    years. He should be preparing to celebrate ? the first preview is just
    over two weeks away, with opening night set to follow on July 14 ?
    instead, he’s spoiling for a fight.
    The world premiere of his £6?million Cinderella depends on social
    distancing being lifted, in accordance with the Government’s “roadmap”,
    on June 21, a promised milestone that looks increasingly in doubt. Yet,
    Lloyd Webber tells me, his voice bristling with defiance, “We are going
    to open, come hell or high water”. What if the Government demands a
    postponement? “We will say: come to the theatre and arrest us.”
    The buzz around Cinderella, Lloyd Webber’s 17th major musical since
    Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in 1968, is intense, not
    least because its book is by Emerald Fennell, the Oscar-winning writer,
    director and producer of Promising Young Woman. Lloyd Webber has known
    35-year-old Fennell, who also appeared as Camilla Parker Bowles in The
    Crown, since she was a child – he’s an old friend of her mother and
    father, the jeweller Theo Fennell.
    He seized on her scenario, dashed off in 48 hours back in 2018, when she >>> was still best known for playing Nurse Patsy in Call the Midwife. Her
    sparky treatment upends the familiar telling of the fairy tale, instead
    presenting, as Lloyd Webber puts it, “a world where people go to extreme >>> lengths to make themselves beautiful, and our Cinderella looks at it and >>> goes: this is weird”.
    Lyrics by David Zippel stir stinging satire into the romance. “It’s
    about being obsessed with changing yourself and being like the
    Kardashians,” says Lloyd Webber. For Zippel, who also collaborated on
    The Woman in White in 2004, the creative process was “joyful… Andrew
    knew where he wanted it to go musically. There were times Emerald would
    write a scene and I would musicalise it – it was a team effort.”

    According to Nikolai Foster, artistic director of Leicester’s Curve
    theatre, Lloyd Webber’s score marks “a return to A-game form… You’ve got >>> rock anthems that remind you of the excitement of Jesus Christ
    Superstar, there are waltzes with nods to Rodgers and Hammerstein, and a >>> mind-blowing Bohemian Rhapsody-inspired segment in the second half. It’s >>> just what you want in a musical.”
    We shall see. Or shall we? What should be the happy conclusion to a
    creative journey that began in earnest in 2018, before being diverted by >>> the pandemic (Cinderella was originally due to open last August) is once >>> again in question. No show of this scale, with a bank-busting ensemble
    of 34, is commercially viable while attendances remain capped at 50 per
    cent of capacity.
    Despite the success of the vaccine rollout, the mood music has suddenly
    changed, and official caution is once again in the ascendant. Lloyd
    Webber questions the justification for this. “I’ve seen the science from >>> the tests, don’t ask me how,” he says. “They all prove that theatres are >>> completely safe, the virus is not carried there. If the Government
    ignore their own science, we have the mother of all legal cases against
    them. If Cinderella couldn’t open, we’d go, ‘Look, either we go to law
    about it or you’ll have to compensate us’.”

    The stakes could hardly be higher. It costs Lloyd Webber £1?million a
    month just to keep his six theatres dark. He has remortgaged his London
    home – a townhouse in Belgravia, which he shares with his third wife,
    Madeleine, mother to three of his five children – and has reportedly
    borrowed more than £50?million, although he refuses to confirm that
    figure today. According to The Sunday Times Rich List his personal net
    worth has tumbled by £275?million in a year, to £525?million.
    More challenges lie ahead. He has two other shows waiting in the wings:
    a new production of The Phantom of the Opera, the West End’s second
    longest-running show after Les Misérables, is set to take over the
    refurbished Her Majesty’s Theatre from July 27; while a revival of
    Joseph is also due at the Palladium that month. Then, as owner of the
    Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London’s oldest playhouse, he’s also poised to >>> unveil a £60?million renovation in time for the UK stage premiere of
    Disney’s Frozen in August. All of which leaves Lloyd Webber in a
    position he describes as “acute financial stress. I don’t think [the
    Government] understand it. We’ve never taken any profit out of the
    theatres. I’ve always tried to put back in, which is why we’re in a
    muddle now because we never had a big reserve.”
    When we meet, early in the morning, at his (again, newly refurbished)
    Gillian Lynne Theatre, Lloyd Webber’s usual, endearing air of eccentric
    distraction has given way to twitchiness. Having shown tireless
    leadership throughout the crisis, he seems a bit on edge. News has come
    in of a government adviser counselling delay to the roadmap and his
    office has just been contacted by Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden.
    “They’ve said can we have a call at 5pm? No! I’m doing the day job now.
    I will talk to him later.” The implication? Theatre is a serious
    business, not to be treated lightly.
    For months, he has been a proactive but pliable collaborator with
    officialdom, on the inside track before news spilled out. Last year, he
    says, he “knew on February 2 from a source in Government that it was
    very likely there would be a lockdown. I got a coded message sent to me
    – ‘Happy birthday!’ – from someone at a meeting.” So Lloyd Webber
    gathered his staff and said: “‘OK, folks, we are going to have to close
    down, we have to get a doomsday scenario in place.’ And people said,
    ‘You’re off your trolley!’” Six weeks later, the Prime Minister advised
    the nation to “avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social
    venues”, effectively bringing down the curtain on live entertainment.

    Now, Lloyd Webber’s patience is being stretched to breaking point.
    “Unfortunately,” he says, “the Government regards theatre as a nice
    thing to have rather than a necessity.” Aside from Dowden, he has had no >>> dealings with the top brass. “I don’t know Boris at all,” he remarks,
    with some acidity. “He has shown no interest in getting in touch.”
    Doubt over the wisdom of opening the West End’s first major new musical
    in over a year is etched on his face. “I jumped the gun and all the
    bigger shows have followed suit. I just hope I’m right. I took what I
    thought was an informed decision on what I knew the Government wanted.”
    If the goalposts keep moving, his worst-case scenario – being forced to
    sell off his playhouses – will become a reality. “There is a real risk
    of that,” he says. “I will fight to the last ditch to prevent that
    happening but no one can deny that there are foreign buyers sniffing
    around who would quite love to have these [theatres] as trophy assets.
    They call them bottom-feeders, don’t they?”
    The licence for the Gillian Lynne “is for a music venue til three in the >>> morning. If I lost it there’d be nothing I could do to stop someone
    doing that.” He trails off, shudders. “In the end, it’s unthinkable.”
    If Lloyd Webber’s London theatre empire crumbles, his life’s work, the
    shows, can hardly be dismantled, even if they are sometimes glibly and
    wrongly disparaged. He says he pays little heed to his detractors;
    negative reviews don’t deter him from continuing, nor do flattering
    appraisals persuade him that he’s a national treasure. “I never think
    about what my profile is. I like to get on and do what I want to do.” He >>> notes, all the same, with some satisfaction that shows such as Jesus
    Christ Superstar and Evita “were not greatly considered at the time, at
    least by quite a number of people, and I think they’re now classics”.
    His biggest flop of the past decade – Stephen Ward, about the socialite
    osteopath at the heart of the Profumo scandal – lasted just a few months >>> in the winter of 2013-14. He concedes that it wasn’t up to scratch but
    pleads illness: “I was on morphine!” (After prostate cancer, he had a
    number of back operations.) He redeemed himself with School of Rock in
    2015, an uproarious hit on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Uproarious: the West End cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock in >>> 2016 CREDIT: Alastair Muir
    That show, based on Richard Linklater’s 2003 film, was about Dewey Finn, >>> a slacker who inveigles his way into a private school and turns prim
    classical music lessons into wild rock sessions. At the time, Lloyd
    Webber – the elder son of composer and organist William Lloyd Webber and >>> violinist and pianist Jean (and, of course, elder brother of cellist
    Julian) – told me how he identified with Finn’s anti-establishment
    spirit, saying, “There was a day I was down to play piano at the school
    concert and I got up and said, ‘I’m changing the agenda, I want to play
    songs I’ve written’ – it was when the real me came out”. Whether it’s
    Finn, or the Phantom, or for that matter Cinderella, Judas, Norma
    Desmond, or even Evita, he’s drawn to outsiders.
    Quite why, though, he hesitates to articulate. “I do relate to that
    misfit [Finn] and I love stories that involve somebody who doesn’t
    conform to convention but I never quite analyse it. It’s probably for
    others to say.” That’s a classic bit of Lloyd Webberian deflection, done >>> with a brisk politesse as though there were much more important things
    to do than clamber onto the analyst’s couch.
    He’s less circumspect about his true feelings on the debacle of the Cats >>> film: “I wrote to the head of Universal and said, ‘You’ve got a car
    crash on your hands unless you get a grip on this thing’, a year before
    they made [it]. I didn’t even get a reply.”
    By this point he is exiting the Gillian Lynne, and ushering me into his
    own personal chauffeur-driven London taxi, to pop round the corner to
    see the opulent goings-on at “The Lane”, as he calls the Theatre Royal,
    brightening as he walks, workmen parting at his approach, like the Red
    Sea before Moses; he’s so speedy it’s hard to keep up.
    Raring to go: the cast of Cinderella
    Raring to go: the cast of Cinderella
    His biographer, Michael Coveney, finds that restlessness fascinating.
    “What is appealing is this permanent sense of insecurity and I don’t
    think it has ever changed. He’s the biggest thing in musical theatre
    since Ivor Novello, in fact there’s no one comparable but he’s never
    quite happy.”
    Perhaps it’s worth taking him at face value too, though: a face that
    lights up when he talks about returning Drury Lane to its palatial
    former glory, or the way the front section of the Gillian Lynne
    auditorium will magically spin on a revolve, so that some of Cinderella
    can be performed in the round.
    “I don’t know when or where or how I began to love musicals but I can’t
    remember a time when I didn’t,” he says, 73 going on seven. “I think of
    music all the time. I must have 30 to 40 melodies in my head that
    haven’t found a home yet.”
    The prosaic, wondrous truth may be that Andrew Lloyd Webber is a
    once-in-a-generation gift to British theatre. It’s incumbent upon the
    Government to handle that gift with utmost care.

    Lockdown easing: Four numbers to look for ahead of the 21 June decision
    By Robert Cuffe
    Head of statistics

    Published1 day ago

    Coronavirus pandemic

    IMAGE COPYRIGHTPA MEDIA
    The UK government faces a difficult choice in the next few days.

    Many people are desperate to see the return to normality promised by the >>> final stage of the roadmap to lifting lockdown.

    But ministers always said 21 June was not set in stone - and could be
    affected by changes in the pandemic, including the emergence of new
    variants.

    What will they be weighing up as they make their final decision?

    Here are four key numbers to watch out for in the coming days.

    1. The number of people in hospital
    There are just under 1,000 people with coronavirus in hospitals in the
    UK, up about 5% from a low point a week ago.

    That's far below the peak of nearly 40,000 people in January. And NHS
    Providers say the people who are going in aren't as seriously ill as
    they were in early waves. They are younger, or don't require intensive
    care as much - and they're coming out sooner.

    That means this wave is different, and better, than previous ones but
    eventually rising admissions will mount up.

    In the two parts of the UK that are furthest into this "third wave", the >>> North West of England and Scotland, the number of people in hospital
    with coronavirus is rising faster than the rest of the UK.

    Chart showing rising numbers of people in hospital in Scotland and the
    North West of England
    How far and how fast this trend develops depends on how fast infections
    are rising and how likely you are to get seriously sick with the new
    variant.

    2. The speed of rising infections
    Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Parliament on Tuesday that the main
    type of coronavirus in the UK - the Delta variant first identified in
    India - is "at least 40%" more transmissible than the version that
    sparked the winter wave - the Alpha variant first seen in Kent.

    And as Delta takes over, infections are on the rise again.

    Last week, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggested that UK
    infections had risen by 60% in a single week.

    A chart showing the path of infection numbers through the pandemic and
    recent rises
    If that growth rate remains steady or picks up, it suggests that cases
    will rise pretty quickly if and when society reopens further.

    We'll learn more on Friday.

    But rising infections on their own aren't a reason to extend lockdown.

    The government's key test is whether rising infections "risk a surge in
    hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS".

    And that also depends on your chances of getting seriously ill if you
    catch coronavirus.

    When could social distancing end?
    3. The chance of becoming seriously ill if infected
    That is much harder to predict now than it was in the first or second
    waves, when scientists could predict what proportion of cases would need >>> treatment.

    That's because vaccines do reduce your chance of getting really sick if
    you do get infected with any variant.

    Already we can see that while people who have been double jabbed make up >>> more than 40% of the population, they make up fewer than 5% of people
    who have been admitted to hospital with the Delta variant.

    But it does look like it takes two doses before someone gets high levels >>> of protection from that variant.

    So there's a race on: double-jab as many people as possible, before the
    virus spreads enough to find the vulnerable or to put pressure on the NHS. >>>
    Chart shows daily doses of vaccine with focus now on second dose
    4. The number of people who have been fully vaccinated
    More than 50% of adults have been given the best protection possible -
    two doses of the vaccine. That's still a way off herd immunity, even if
    you add in people who have some immunity from having had coronavirus in
    the past.

    Say each infected person would, on average, pass the virus on to six
    other people in a fully open society that hadn't seen the virus before.

    Then five out of six people, not just five out of six adults, would need >>> to be able to fight off the virus - that would be the "herd immunity
    threshold".

    We're not there yet, and it's possible that the threshold is higher as
    Delta could be more infectious than imagined in this example.

    But every person vaccinated helps to slow the spread.

    How many people have been vaccinated so far?

    Predicting the future
    To predict what rising infections will mean for the NHS, you need to
    know how fast cases will rise and how many cases will get really sick.

    We don't know either figure precisely, and probably won't by 14 June.

    And a rough estimate doesn't help. The last time UK government modellers >>> made their forecasts, the difference between "40% more transmissible"
    (the orange line below) and "50% more transmissible" (the blue line
    below) made a huge difference to the predicted severity of a third wave. >>>
    Chart showing hospital cases
    And then, to know what to do about rising cases, you need to predict
    what effect any change to the rules might have on spread. It's
    uncertainty piled on uncertainty.

    To know the cost of that action, you need to know what effect another
    few weeks of being shut, or trading at a loss, would do to the
    businesses that are desperate to open up.

    It's a mammoth task and one that will require some old-fashioned
    political judgement as well as hi-tech epidemiological models.

    The only healthy way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.K. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    Delay ending lockdown: majority of public back Boris Johnson to wait
    Observer poll reveals most people believe prime minister should wait
    past proposed 21 June date

    The majority of the public back delaying the end of legal restrictions
    on social contact in the wake of rising cases of a more transmissible
    Covid variant, according to a new poll.

    With Boris Johnson poised to announce a delay to his plan to remove the
    remaining restrictions on 21 June, an Opinium poll for the Observer
    found that 54% think the move should be postponed, up from 43% from a
    fortnight ago.

    It suggests that the public is taking a cautious view following the
    emergence of the Delta variant, first detected in India and thought to
    be 60% more transmissible than the variant previously dominant in the
    UK. The proportion of people who thought Johnson should push ahead with
    the unlocking has fallen from 44% a fortnight ago to 37% this week.

    Advertisement
    A four-week delay now seems the most likely outcome when Johnson
    addresses the nation on Monday. Scientists have said that a delay will
    allow more time to collect crucial data on the serious illness caused by >>> the Delta variant, as well as allowing more people to be vaccinated.

    Hospital chiefs have also been warning that even if deaths and cases of
    serious illness are lower as a result of the vaccine programme, the
    sheer number of new cases could affect other hospital services that have >>> been hit by huge waiting lists and delays as a result of the pandemic.

    Emergency departments are already being “overwhelmed”, according to the
    Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM). NHS performance figures
    published last week showed that nearly 1.4 million patients had attended >>> A&Es in England during May – the second highest figure recorded since
    the 1980s, according to Dr Adrian Boyle, vice-president of the RCEM.

    Chris Hopson, chief executive of NHS Providers, said: “Trust leaders are >>> nervous that, with this level of pressure, even if they have relatively
    small numbers of Covid-19 patients coming in, that could disrupt the
    non-Covid care that’s being provided. NHS capacity is nowhere near where >>> it would normally be.

    “If you add all of that together – full-pelt care backlog recovery, a
    very busy emergency care pathway, growing numbers of Covid patients and
    12% less capacity – what we’re saying is that overall NHS pressure is
    one of the factors that absolutely does need to be taken into account.”

    Johnson is, however, coming under pressure from Tory MPs desperate to
    avoid any delay. Steve Baker, deputy chair of the Covid Recovery Group
    of MPs, said: “Sooner or later, we are going to have to decide if we are >>> content to fumble along like this as a country, imposing severe
    restrictions that a majority seem to support but which are having
    devastating consequences on some businesses and some people’s mental
    health.”

    In his clearest indication yet of a delay, Johnson said the spread of
    the new variant was a “serious, serious concern”. He insisted no final
    decisions had been made, but said it was “clear that the Indian variant
    is more transmissible and it’s also true that the cases are going up,
    and that the levels of hospitalisation are going up”.

    He confirmed he was now less optimistic over holding to the current
    unlocking timetable than a fortnight ago. “What we want to do is make
    sure that the roadmap is irreversible, but you can’t have an
    irreversible roadmap unless you’re prepared to be cautious,” he said.

    The only healthy way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in

    Theresa May has savaged Boris Johnson's "chaotic" foreign travel rules
    after thousands of Brits in Portugal were plunged into the amber list.

    In a furious broadside at her successor, the former Prime Minister said
    it is "incomprehensible" that Brits can barely take any foreign holidays >>> despite the huge number of vaccinations.

    She warned Brits will "never be able to travel abroad ever again" if the >>> point of travel restrictions is to keep out new variants.

    And witheringly the Maidenhead MP - who received £8,400 worth of
    hospitality from nearby Heathrow Airport last year - said the government >>> "needs to decide whether it wants an airline industry".

    It comes after Portugal, one of the only "green list" countries Brits
    could travel to without quarantine at either end, was put on the amber
    list in a travel update.

    That means returning Brits have had to isolate for up to 10 days at home >>> since 4am on Tuesday.

    While travel to red or amber list countries is not legally banned, the
    government is strongly advising Brits against it.

    Labour has called for a stricter border policy while SAGE scientists
    argue restrictions are needed to keep new variants from undermining the
    vaccine programme.

    But Mrs May said the government should be "up front" with the public
    that "we will not eradicate" Covid-19 from the UK.

    Mrs May said deaths from Covid will also continue in future and
    highlighted the thousands of flu deaths which occur in the country each
    year.

    Speaking during a low-key general debate on the aviation, travel and
    tourism industries, she said the Government has failed to act on its
    promise from June 2020 to get internationally-agreed standard health
    measures in place.

    The Conservative MP said: "One year on, we are no further forward -
    indeed, what we have is a devastated industry, jobs lost and global
    Britain shut for business. More than not being any further forward,
    we've gone backwards.

    "We now have over 50% of the adult population vaccinated - a wonderful
    programme - yet we're more restricted on travel than we were last year.

    there was no vaccine and travel was possible - this year there is a
    vaccine, travel is not possible. I really don't understand the stance
    the Government is taking."

    Mrs May raised questions over the "mixed" messaging over travel to
    countries on the amber list, adding the system is "chaotic".

    She also told the House of Commons: "I think there are some facts the
    Government needs to be upfront with the British people about and
    ministers need to think a bit more of when making these decisions.

    "First, we will not eradicate Covid-19 from the UK. There will not be a
    time when we can say that there will never be another case of Covid-19
    in this country.

    "Secondly, variants will keep on coming. There will be new variants
    every year. If the Government's position is that we cannot open up
    travel until there are no new variants elsewhere in the world then we
    will never be able to travel abroad ever again.

    "And the third fact that the Government needs to state much more clearly >>> is that sadly people will die from Covid here in the UK in the future,
    as 10,000 to 20,000 people do every year from flu."

    Opening the debate, transport minister Robert Courts spoke about how
    reviews are conducted every three weeks on the safety of travel
    destinations and highlighted efforts to reduce the cost of Covid-19 tests. >>>
    He said: "The ability to prove your vaccination status for outbound
    travel using the NHS app and an inclusive letter service means that
    several countries now accept vaccinated visitors from the UK with
    reduced or removed testing and health measures."

    At this point, Mrs May put her head in her hands as MPs asked about
    inbound visitors.

    Conservative Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 committee, asked:
    "Why doesn't the United Kingdom recognise the validity of those vaccines >>> for international travel?"


    Mr Courts replied: "We are considering what role vaccination may be able >>> to play in facilitating international travel."

    In his concluding remarks, Mr Courts said he wants to welcome people
    back to the UK and for Britons to explore the world before adding: "We
    cannot and we will not rush this, and we cannot and will not undermine
    our hard won progress.

    "If we move too quickly, recklessly even, we could throw away our
    progress and take us all - including the travel, tourism and aviation
    industries back to square one."

    Senior ministers have signed off a decision to delay the lifting of all
    coronavirus restrictions in England beyond 21 June.

    Government sources have told the BBC most current rules will remain for
    another four weeks after this date.

    It means nightclubs will stay closed and people will be encouraged to
    still work from home where possible.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to confirm the delay later at a >>> press conference.

    The extension will be put to a Commons vote this month and could trigger >>> a sizeable Conservative backbench rebellion.

    Lockdown lifting - the four key numbers
    Why June 21 lockdown easing may have to wait
    'We'll lose thousands if wedding rules don't change'
    Stage four of the government's roadmap out of lockdown would see all
    legal limits on social contact removed.

    But many scientists have called for the reopening to be delayed to
    enable more people to be vaccinated and receive second doses amid rising >>> cases of the Delta variant.

    A delay would also allow for more work to be done on whether vaccines
    are breaking, or simply weakening, the link between infections and
    hospitalisations.

    On Sunday Prime Minister Boris Johnson said a final decision on whether
    the reopening should be paused had not yet been taken.

    All areas of Scotland are due to move to Level Zero Covid restrictions
    on 28 June - meaning bigger groups can gather in cafés, pubs and
    restaurants, although they will still have to observe social distancing. >>>
    Limits on indoor gatherings in Northern Ireland are scheduled to be
    relaxed on 21 June - when the current rules in Wales will also be reviewed. >>>
    'Break clause'
    Former Conservative cabinet minister Damian Green told the BBC's
    Westminster Hour that he wanted to see the decision to delay reviewed as >>> more data becomes available.

    "I think if it is as long as a month then there should be a break clause >>> after two or maybe three weeks, to say that if we can tell by then that
    the rise in cases is not leading to a sort of rise in the serious
    illness that sends people into hospital, then we can unlock earlier," he >>> said.

    On Sunday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told the BBC's Andrew Marr
    Show the government "don't want to yo-yo in and out of measures".

    He said the decision on postponing unlocking would depend on whether the >>> link between infections and hospital admissions had been severed.

    Under stage four of the roadmap, venues and events would be allowed to
    operate without capacity limits and the cap on guests at weddings would
    also be lifted.

    Even if these restrictions are removed, rules on face coverings and
    social distancing could remain in place.

    The prime minister has previously said the government must be cautious
    so any easing of restrictions is irreversible.

    Chart showing infections trend
    Rising infections in the UK are being driven by the Delta variant, first >>> identified in India, which now accounts for 90% of infections.

    It is believed to be around 60% more infectious than the Alpha variant - >>> which was first identified in Kent and was previously dominant in the UK >>> - and twice as likely to result in infected people being hospitalised.

    Prof Andrew Hayward from University College London, who is a member of
    the Sage group which advises the government, said easing more
    restrictions would "fan the flames" of rising infections.

    On Sunday, the UK recorded 7,490 new cases of Covid-19 and eight deaths
    within 28 days of a positive test.

    The seven-day average for cases in the UK is up 49% compared with the
    seven days before.

    line
    Analysis box by Nick Triggle, health correspondent
    If it wasn't for the Delta variant, the government would in all
    likelihood be announcing the go-ahead for a full unlock.

    But a more infectious variant against which one shot of the vaccine
    works less well has created a problem.

    That much can be seen from how quickly infection levels are rising. The
    trajectory we are on means we could see January levels of infection by
    the end of July.

    Exactly what that means for hospital admissions is less clear. It is
    already obvious that while the vaccines have weakened the link between
    cases and serious illness they have not broken it completely -
    admissions are rising after all.

    Early data suggests less than 5% of cases are ending up in hospital -
    half the rate seen previously.

    But that still has the potential to cause 2,000 admissions a day if we
    did reach January levels of infection - twice what the NHS would see for >>> all respiratory illnesses in a bad winter.

    None of that is guaranteed, of course, and so a delay, government
    scientists are arguing, gives them more time to work out with confidence >>> where we are heading - and it is even possible the immunity built up by
    the vaccines will have started to halt the growth by then.

    line
    The government has set out four tests that must be met for the next
    stage of easing restrictions to go ahead:

    The vaccine deployment programme continues successfully
    Evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing
    hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated
    Infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put
    unsustainable pressure on the NHS
    Its assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new variants >>> of concern
    More than 41 million people in the UK have had a first dose of a
    coronavirus vaccine, while nearly 30 million have had two doses.

    Graph showing number of patients in hospital in the UK with Covid-19
    starting to rise
    The Night Time Industries Association has warned any delay beyond 21
    June would be "catastrophic" for sectors like nightclubs which have been >>> forced to close since March last year.

    It said businesses had already spent millions preparing to reopen on
    that date.

    The UK Weddings Taskforce, an industry group, estimates that 50,000
    weddings planned in the four weeks from 21 June could be cancelled if
    the lifting of restrictions is pushed back and that the industry would
    lose lose £325m for every week of delay.

    Currently the number of guests allowed at weddings and other life events >>> is limited to 30.

    Some Conservative MPs also oppose a delay to easing restrictions,
    including members of the Covid Recovery Group of backbenchers.

    The group's chairman, former minister Mark Harper, said any postponement >>> would be a "political choice".

    He warned that if the unlocking did not go ahead as planned,
    restrictions could carry on through the autumn and into the winter as
    other respiratory infections picked up.

    "The effectiveness of our vaccines at preventing hospitalisation means
    unlocking on 21 June could proceed safely. Any decision to delay will be >>> a political choice," he said.

    "If our very effective vaccines cannot deliver us freedom from

    The Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre said there were "thousands >of jobs hanging in the balance" as producers make the "difficult >decision" of whether to start rehearsals for shows that are due to open >later this summer.

    "Particularly at risk are large-scale commercial productions, which
    have

    'West End farce'
    Trafalgar Entertainment's Sir Howard Panter and Dame Rosemary Squire,
    who have two major musicals due to open in London in late July, said
    the
    delay was "yet another bungle" from the government.

    "The confusion and muddled messages are reminiscent of a West End

    Meanwhile, UK Cinema Association said it was "mindful of the rationale >behind today's decision" and acknowledged many cinemas "can still
    operate viably at below full occupancy", but that they would "continue
    to face significant challenges as they look to recover from the

    June 16, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. UTC


    26
    I got the coronavirus vaccine as soon as I could, in early April. I had
    my concerns, and the side effects were rough, but I accepted them as a
    small price to pay for the world to resume — and for me to get back to
    work. I play piano and sing on cruise ships, and I haven’t been able to
    set foot on deck for over a year. Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been
    following the news and secret Facebook groups for cruise workers, hoping >>> for signs of our industry’s return.
    I was pretty discouraged when I saw Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) ban
    businesses from requiring proof of vaccination from customers. This
    would mean cruise lines face up to $5,000 in fines for each passenger
    they ask. I fear that this policy will drag down an industry that’s
    already been treading water for 15 months. Everyone who works on a
    cruise ship — and, I’d bet, most passengers, too — want to know that the >>> people onboard with us don’t pose an unnecessary risk to our health and
    safety. If cruise lines can’t protect the safety of passengers and crew
    and make people feel confident about booking their vacations, we’ll
    never get back to normal. Right now, I believe requiring passengers and
    crew to be vaccinated is our best chance at returning to normalcy.
    I’ve greatly respected DeSantis’s efforts to advocate for the cruise
    industry and keep Florida’s economy going during the pandemic. After my
    cruise contracts evaporated virtually overnight, I couldn’t find work in >>> my home state: Massachusetts had banned indoor singing. After visiting a >>> friend in Tampa in October, I was amazed to see performance venues open
    and holding auditions. I landed a role in a popular piano show three
    nights a week. That gig was my lifeline, and I ended up moving here.
    This was only possible because of Florida’s ability to set its own
    coronavirus restrictions.
    But the state’s new policy hampers private businesses and overrides
    their rights. I don’t believe that anyone should be mandated to get the
    vaccine, but companies already have the right to set health standards
    for their employees: Even before the pandemic, I had to pass an
    extremely thorough seafarer medical evaluation, including records of
    other non-coronavirus vaccinations and vision and hearing tests, to work >>> onboard. On each ship, there are strict health protocols in place. Upon
    embarking, I am required to undergo rigorous health and safety trainings >>> and drills, as is every single crew member. Failing to report symptoms
    of illness is a fireable offense.
    So I don’t believe it’s unreasonable for cruise lines to ask guests for
    proof of vaccination. Companies should get to decide which clients they
    will or won’t serve (unless they’re discriminating by race, gender, age, >>> sexual identity, disability or other protected reasons). Unvaccinated
    customers present more of a risk than vaccinated ones.
    [Cruise lines sell us a floating paradise. Coronavirus shows it was
    always a lie.]
    When it comes to cruises, what happens in Florida does not stay in
    Florida. Every single Carnival, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean cruise
    docks in at least one foreign port. There’s no telling what unvaccinated >>> guests may be exposed to in those ports, what risks they’ll pose to
    locals or what they’ll bring back with them.
    Cruises also employ a huge number of crew members from all over the
    world, including countries without much vaccine access and where
    coronavirus cases have stayed high. These crew members are required to
    be vaccinated to work on board, so their personal risk of getting
    seriously ill is low. However, while the vaccines appear to prevent
    people from transmitting the virus, they may still worry about spreading >>> the virus to unvaccinated loved ones and their communities — especially
    in places that don’t have the same health care infrastructure or access
    that we have in the States. My co-workers already sacrifice so much by
    leaving their families and homes for up to nine months at a time. They
    shouldn’t have to fear coming to work or returning home.
    Vaccine requirements make sense for our industry: People live in very
    close quarters on ships. For some travelers, that’s part of the appeal — >>> the opportunities to gather with, and befriend, strangers during a
    voyage. My job involves a lot of close contact: I play music in crowded
    bars and packed auditoriums at night, and I’m expected to be “on” and
    presentable during the day, mingling with guests over meals or in other
    common spaces. Vacation is about relaxation: It’s hard to imagine
    customers signing up for a cruise if they’re worried about viral spread
    and can’t fully enjoy the ship’s amenities, like gathering in a
    restaurant or a nightclub or laying maskless by the pool.
    With everything that’s happened during the pandemic, cruise lines have
    even more reason to make customers feel confident about traveling with
    them. Some of the most publicized early coronavirus outbreaks, in
    February and March 2020, happened on cruise ships. The Centers for
    Disease Control and Prevention imposed a No Sail order and, in the fall, >>> issued a report blaming the industry for the widespread transmission of
    the virus. Now, with vaccinations rising, and case counts dropping,
    cruise lines have been following new CDC guidelines that will permit
    them to set sail — including a requirement that 98 percent of crew and
    95 percent of passengers be fully vaccinated to board a cruise.
    [Yes, it’s legal for businesses and schools to require you to get a
    coronavirus vaccine]
    Florida’s policy clashes with those preparations — and with federal
    guidance — and it may end up hurting the state. In 2019, the cruise
    industry contributed almost 159,000 jobs and $8.1 billion in income to
    Florida, according to the Cruise Lines International Association.
    Already, some cruise lines have said that they’ll shift voyages to other >>> states or the Caribbean to avoid DeSantis’s ban.
    I’ve worked on cruises whose itineraries brought us to Australia during
    its worst-ever wildfire season, Hawaii during a hurricane, New Zealand
    during deadly volcano eruptions and Alaska during record-breaking forest >>> fires. Each time, I felt safely insulated — even weirdly dissociated — >>>from the world while onboard the ships where I live and work. To me,
    cruises have generally felt like an escape from even the most dire
    circumstances. I have always felt safe, and I’m proud that we have been
    able to guarantee guests that same sense of security; regardless of the
    scenario, we are equipped and prepared. But this pandemic has been the
    exception. If the government prevents ships from taking the proper
    safety precautions, the inevitable reality is either a coronavirus
    outbreak or a further delay in the return to sailing.
    Performing on cruise ships was a dream come true for me — a chance to
    see the world while doing what I loved most. “Ship life” is an
    experience almost impossible to explain to those on the outside. I
    didn’t just work onboard. This is where I lived. This is where my
    friends were. This is where my life was. The people I met onboard, both
    passengers and fellow crew, weren’t just customers and co-workers — they >>> were my neighbors, the people I spent holidays and birthdays with, the
    shoulders I cried on.
    I, like thousands of others, fled to Florida during the pandemic to
    dodge the stringent restrictions that were preventing me from pursuing
    my career and any sense of normal life. Now, I just hope Florida’s new
    policies won’t stand in the way of my colleagues and me getting back to
    work — and the lives we’ve had to put on hold for the past 15 months.

    As the mainstream narrative about the origin of COVID-19 falls apart,

    MICHAEL LOCCISANO/GETTY IMAGES
    On March 13, 2020, the public school district where I teach announced
    that all classrooms and buildings would be closed for two weeks. Then
    two weeks turned into two months, and two months turned into over a full >>> year without in-person instruction. My school serves a diverse
    population of low-income students in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is
    impossible to overstate the severity of this disruption caused by school >>> closures for these students, many of whom did not have a computer or
    internet at home when virtual learning began. Online, my students got
    only a fraction of the regular curriculum. Kids who had once loved the
    social aspects of school were left with only the parts of school they
    hated, and students with disabilities who depended on school for daily
    living needs were cut off from a vital service.

    “Public health” and “the safety of our children” came to mean students
    Zooming from homeless encampments, experiencing severe abuse, regressing >>> academically, falling into depression, going hungry, struggling through
    catastrophic learning loss, and, in the saddest cases, not making it
    through the year alive. Despite consistent evidence that schools were
    not sites of high transmission for COVID-19, many teachers failed to put >>> aside baseless fears about classroom superspreading and rampant
    infection. As a result, many of the most vulnerable children in our
    society suffered outrageous hardships, while their affluent peers
    attended private schools in person. We’ve all been told that school
    closures and lockdowns were mandated by science, but what if these
    mandates were immoral? What if they were based on a series of lies? In
    fact, what if the entire rationale for most restrictions was actually
    rotten to the core?

    We’re watching the mainstream pandemic narrative starting to unravel.
    While the Senate and House intelligence committees investigate the
    origins of SARS-CoV-2, many reporters are openly wondering why they
    initially dismissed the lab leak hypothesis as “misinformation.” Few in
    media consider the possibility that their approach to the theory was not >>> an anomaly, but rather a long-established pattern of journalistic
    dereliction of duty. For the public, these renewed questions about the
    virus (and their hard-to-face answers) speak to a deep sense that
    something is amiss in the story we’ve been told by major media outlets.
    But gain-of-function research is just the tip of the iceberg.

    A trove of media darling Dr. Anthony Fauci’s emails was recently
    released to the public. The emails reveal early assertions that
    asymptomatic transmission is rare, that post-infection immunity is
    highly likely, and that masks are “not really effective.” However, you
    wouldn’t know that from the public messaging since the start of the
    pandemic, in which bureaucrats and journalists upheld lasting
    misconceptions that asymptomatic cases are dangerous, natural immunity
    is not a factor in protecting the population, and individuals are
    responsible for viral spread. These misconceptions fueled countless
    months of lockdowns, business closures, and job losses, pushing millions >>> of people into poverty and despair through the destructive lie that
    stringent “sick until proven healthy” interventions save lives.

    In reality, the rushed doomsday forecasts and commitment to politically
    correct pseudoscience prompted leaders to abandon decades of pandemic
    planning. This not only had disastrous economic consequences, but it
    also exacerbated the effects of COVID-19 itself. And rather than swiftly >>> correct their errors, public health officials and politicians doubled
    down, manipulated data, and blamed ordinary people for the failure of
    nonsensical policies. The uncomfortable truth is that “The Science” did
    not protect vulnerable populations. Instead, “expert” advice served only >>> to make the pandemic more deadly and replace the scientific process with >>> destructive anti-science.

    Saving Lives by Killing People
    In December 2020, 35% of Americans believed that half of the people with >>> COVID-19 required hospitalization. The correct figure was 1%-5%.
    Americans also estimated that the share of COVID-19 deaths for people
    between 18 and 24 was 8%. It was actually 0.1%. These incorrect
    assumptions were influenced by anecdotes, shocking media coverage, and
    early projections like the influential Imperial College model, which
    threatened that without lockdowns there would be 40 million COVID-19
    deaths worldwide. The model assumed an infection fatality rate (IFR) of
    0.9%, but the actual IFR of COVID-19 is 0.15% and the median IFR for
    people under 70 is 0.05%.

    As a result of mistaken prognostications like this, the media compared
    COVID-19 to the 1918 influenza pandemic, for which the average age of
    death was 28. For COVID-19 the average age of death is 73, and about
    half of all deaths are in people 80 or older. While the CDC projected a
    one-year decrease in life expectancy for the U.S. population, the
    overall decrease in life expectancy was only five days, and the U.S.’s
    excess mortality in 2017 was greater than its excess mortality in 2020.

    There is no better example of the harm created by flawed simulations,
    and the subsequent misguided interventions, than New York’s disastrous
    nursing home policy. While Gov. Andrew Cuomo landed a $5 million book
    deal and won an Emmy for his televised briefings, conditions on the
    ground for COVID-19 patients in his state were catastrophic. Over 9,000
    elderly COVID-19 patients were sent from hospitals back to nursing
    homes. Additionally, Cuomo required group homes for people with
    intellectual disabilities to take COVID-19 patients and attempted to
    issue a blanket DNR guideline for all cardiac patients in New York City. >>> He also denied nursing homes’ requests for testing kits, ignored the
    concerns of families, and gave immunity to nursing home executives. This >>> resulted in the deaths of nearly 15,000 long-term-care patients.

    These deaths did not occur because Cuomo ignored scientists and
    researchers. They occurred precisely because Cuomo was adhering to
    predictions from his team of experts who projected the need for 140,000
    hospital beds and 40,000 ICUs. Ultimately, New York’s actual bed and ICU >>> use peaked in mid-April at 18,825 and 5,225, respectively. The deadly
    decisions the governor’s office made were motivated by a perceived need
    to save resources and space—a manufactured imperative based on
    fictitious IFR figures and a baseless belief in universal risk.

    Moreover, although some New York hospitals were overwhelmed, many were
    not. While Elmhurst hospital in Queens was at full capacity in April,
    the hospital had 26 new ambulances to take patients to 3,500 empty beds
    in New York City, many within a 20-minute drive. Because of panic
    induced by horrific forecasts, New York City doctors cited the need for
    “wartime ethics” when advising patients and families about DNRs. At some >>> hospitals, doctors were informally allowed to override patients’ desires >>> for medical intervention. These ethical violations were urged on by
    crazed media coverage and an environment of psychological terror, but
    they were not justified by the true level of danger involved in treating >>> patients.

    Despite concerns about hospital beds and ICUs, field hospitals across
    the country remained largely empty, costing taxpayers $660 million
    despite the fact that most of them did not serve any patients. Cuomo’s
    nursing home order was replicated by four other Democratic governors,
    and one-third of all American deaths from the virus are now linked to
    nursing homes. As a consequence of these practices, New York State has
    the second-highest COVID-19 mortality rate in the country.

    Following the Science
    Three of the top four states in overall COVID-19 mortality have
    Democratic governors who “followed the science” long after the initial
    promises that it would only take “two weeks to flatten the curve.”
    Although these states have high population density, density is often
    associated with lower COVID-19 death rates. After Texas Gov. Greg Abbott >>> lifted all his state’s restrictions in April, Texas saw no resulting
    surge in cases, hospitalizations, or deaths. In fact, many states that
    continued restrictions saw higher cases and deaths than states that
    lifted restrictions early.

    The Herd Immunity Taboo
    Purity and danger: Why some are strangely comforted by lockdowns,
    fearful of herd immunity, and quick to punish anyone who questions the
    stark choice between them
    BYNORMAN DOIDGE
    These trends are consistent with dozens of peer-reviewed studies and
    retrospective analyses indicating that stay-at-home orders did not have
    an impact on rates of fatal infection and that comparisons between many
    countries do not show superior outcomes from lockdowns. Besides
    hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care settings, households
    show some of the highest rates of transmission, while the share of
    transmission that has happened outdoors is less than 0.1%. Furthermore,
    vitamin D and exercise have both been linked to better outcomes for
    COVID-19 patients. In the U.S. 78% of people hospitalized for COVID-19
    were overweight or obese. Lockdowns caused Americans to gain an average
    of two pounds per month and reduce their daily steps by 27%, thereby
    increasing the likelihood of adverse COVID-19 outcomes.

    Not only were government orders confining people to their homes highly
    detrimental, but the early recommended treatment procedures for the
    virus were often fatal. Although experts and the media claimed that
    ventilators were lifesaving, death rates in most states actually dropped >>> dramatically once the use of ventilators was abandoned in favor of other >>> treatments. In order to meet what was supposed to be an astronomical
    medical demand, the U.S. spent $3 billion manufacturing ventilators, but >>> by August 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services had
    distributed only 15,057 ventilators, leaving 95,713 of them untouched in >>> a federal stockpile.

    Usually, 40%-50% of patients in severe respiratory distress die on
    ventilators, but in New York City the death rate for COVID-19 patients
    on ventilators was 88%. Hospital staff often intubated patients
    prematurely or left them on ventilators for 10-15 days. Patients were
    given unusually heavy sedatives so that staff would be able to check on
    them less frequently. U.S. hospitals received $13,000 for each Medicare
    COVID-19 patient and $39,000 for each Medicare patient they intubated.
    These patients were separated from their families and had no one to
    advocate for them. Many people died after terrified doctors, misinformed >>> about the scale of the risks, used intubation as a way to avoid virus
    exposure.

    When lockdowns began, commentators referred to herd immunity as a
    “genocidal” concept that meant exposing vulnerable people to disease.
    That is actually what happens when natural immunity is prevented.
    Lockdowns limit and delay the acquired immunity of the younger
    population, making older people more vulnerable to exposure, especially
    in the absence of focused protection measures. Long-lasting immunity >>>from COVID-19 is acquired after mild or asymptomatic cases, and
    sensational stories about “long COVID” and “COVID heart” have been
    debunked. In-person learning was not correlated with lower rates of
    student illness and school closures may have actually worsened death rates. >>>
    Clearly, quarantining the healthy did exactly the opposite of what was
    sold to the public: It increased non-COVID-19 excess deaths while
    leaving elderly and immunocompromised people completely unprotected.
    While some may excuse the destructiveness of lockdowns as a simple
    error, the sheer volume of reversals public health officials have made
    during the pandemic paints a picture of bureaucrats intentionally
    misleading the public in order to cover up their failures or pursue
    agendas unrelated to public health.

    Moving the Goal Posts
    Experts have consistently taken an imprecise approach to statistics,
    changed their minds, and withheld information while claiming the mantle
    of “scientific consensus.” Over the summer of 2020, the WHO quietly
    changed its definition of herd immunity from protection acquired through >>> both natural immunity and vaccination to one acquired only through
    vaccination. Similarly, in December 2020, Fauci declared that he was
    changing his estimate for vaccination rates needed to achieve herd
    immunity from 60% to 90%. When asked for a scientific rationale, Fauci
    said he changed the percentage based purely on polling that indicated
    more Americans were willing to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

    When lockdowns failed to yield meaningful mitigation results, public
    health agencies that had previously recommended against masking changed
    their position. Although simulations suggested that 80% mask compliance
    would do more to stop the spread of COVID-19 than lockdowns, regional
    analysis in the United States does not show that mandates had any effect >>> on case rates, despite 93% compliance. Moreover, according to CDC data,
    85% of people who contracted COVID-19 reported wearing a mask.

    Research has shown that once unquestioned rules like 6 feet for social
    distancing are arbitrary and not actually associated with lower
    transmission. Reporting of death and hospitalization rates was also
    inexact, and mass asymptomatic testing distorted public understanding of >>> the virus. Ninety-five percent of COVID-19 deaths had an average of four >>> related underlying conditions and the CDC’s death count includes “deaths >>> involving unintentional and intentional injury.” As a result of testing
    children hospitalized for unrelated conditions, the number of pediatric
    COVID-19 hospitalizations was exaggerated by at least 40%.

    The PCR testing protocol for COVID-19 was based on a paper by Christian
    Drosten, which was peer-reviewed and published within just two days in a >>> journal on whose editorial board Drosten sits. The method was created
    “without having virus material available,” using instead a genetic
    sequence published online. The PCR test amplifies genetic material of
    the virus in cycles but does not determine whether a case is infectious. >>> A higher number of cycles indicates a lower viral load. The cycle
    threshold for PCR tests used in the U.S. was usually limited at 37 or
    40, highly sensitive levels. In July 2020, Fauci remarked that at these
    levels, a positive result is “just dead nucleotides, period.”

    For vaccinated Americans, the CDC has lowered the cycle threshold for
    “breakthrough infections” to only 28 cycles and announced that
    post-vaccine cases will only be counted if they result in
    hospitalization or death. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky stated that
    vaccinated Americans who died and tested positive for COVID-19 merely
    died “with” COVID-19, not “from” COVID-19. This method of tallying would >>> eliminate many pre-vaccine cases. It is also likely that 85%-90% of
    tests that are positive at a cycle threshold of 40 would be negative at
    a cycle threshold of 30.

    Despite this lack of accurate data, authorities have consistently
    scapegoated members of the public as “anti-maskers” or “anti-vaxxers”
    responsible for prolonging the pandemic. They have used divisive
    messaging and disorienting scare tactics in order to justify months of
    COVID-19 restrictions that were based on dogma, not on science.

    Scientific Inversion
    Our current state of scientific inversion has sown intense division in
    the U.S. and threatens to rip apart the social fabric. For the past 16
    months, the public has been told that it is our duty to serve the needs
    of medical institutions and personnel, not the other way around.
    Effective low-cost therapeutics like ivermectin were dismissed in favor
    of a vaccine program that transferred billions of dollars from taxpayers >>> to pharmaceutical executives and shareholders. Critics of measures like
    school closures were accused of far-right white supremacy, even though
    these measures were most damaging to working-class people and
    minorities. Deadly policies were portrayed as lifesaving, and public
    health protocols caused immense clinical damage.

    A few people have benefited from this war on reality while many have
    paid a heavy price. In 2020, workers lost $3.7 trillion, while
    billionaires gained $3.9 trillion and 493 new individuals became
    billionaires. During this same period, decades of progress against
    diseases like malaria and tuberculosis were reversed. Disruptions to
    health and nutrition services killed 228,000 children in South Asia.
    Globally, the impact of lockdowns on health programs, food production,
    and supply chains plunged millions of people into severe hunger and
    malnutrition.

    In the U.S., we are facing a crisis of cardiovascular disease and
    undiagnosed cancer. Unemployment shock will cause 890,000 additional
    deaths over the next 15 years. Overdoses from synthetic opioids
    increased by 38.4%, and 11% of U.S. adults considered suicide last June. >>> Three million children disappeared from public school systems, and ERs
    saw a 31% increase in adolescent mental health visits.

    Now, the stories that were used to justify these hardships are
    continuing to unravel. Many of the people responsible will insist that
    the second-order consequences are the horrible symptoms of a magic virus >>> and that the mistakes made in handling such a crisis were inevitable.
    But preventing young children from reaching crucial developmental
    milestones in the face of mounting evidence is not just a “mistake.”
    Forcing hospital patients to die alone without saying goodbye to their
    families is not just a “mistake.” Pushing millions of people into
    poverty and starvation is not just a “mistake.” These are crimes.

    Basic civil, human, and economic rights were violated under demonstrably >>> fraudulent pretenses. The sacrifices we thought we were making for the
    common good were sacrifices made in vain. Unlawful lockdowns demoralized >>> the population and ruined lives. The tragic reality is that this was all >>> for nothing. The only way to prevent these events from recurring is to
    exhaustively investigate not just the origin of the virus, but every
    corrupt and misguided decision made by politicians, NGOs, public health
    organizations, and scientific institutions made since its fateful emergence.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who

    Instead of heading back to the office in the wake of the Covid pandemic, >>> employees may quit instead.
    In what’s being called the “Great Resignation,” 95% of workers are
    considering changing jobs, according to a report by Monster.com.

    We may never go back to the office full-time
    Before Covid, Blaze Bullock, 34, was on the road one week a month as a
    marketing consultant in the auto industry.

    Then, when the country shut down, Bullock began working remotely. “Now
    they want me to start traveling again and visiting car dealerships,” he
    said. “I don’t want to do that at all.”

    Bullock said he likes working from home and spending more time with his
    friends and family in Salt Lake City. “I realized this is the only way I >>> want to live.”

    The pandemic has caused a lot of people to reevaluate, particularly when >>> it comes to work.

    After working from home for over a year, Blaze Bullock says he'd like to >>> freelance full-time or at least find a position that's entirely remote – >>> and he's seen plenty of those types of openings.

    After spending more than a year at home, some don’t want to go back to
    commuting, preferring the flexibility of remote work at least a few days >>> a week.

    Others are simply burned out from logging long hours while also
    balancing child care and remote school, sometimes all at once.

    And nearly all employees are ready to see what else is out there.

    “Either they’re unfulfilled from their jobs or their priorities have
    changed,” said Maria Reitan, founder and head coach at Jump Team, based
    in Minneapolis.

    In what’s been dubbed the “Great Resignation,” a whopping 95% of workers >>> are now considering changing jobs, and 92% are even willing to switch
    industries to find the right position, according to a recent report by
    jobs site Monster.com.

    Most say burnout and lack of growth opportunities are what is driving
    the shift, Monster found.

    “When we were in the throes of the pandemic, so many people buckled
    down, now what we’re seeing is a sign of confidence,” said Scott
    Blumsack, senior vice president of research and insights at Monster.

    Already, a record 4 million people quit their jobs in April alone,
    according to the Labor Department.

    Candidates are putting their toe in the water to see what’s out there.

    At the same time, there are more opportunities for job seekers — with
    the Labor Department reporting a record 9.3 million job openings as of
    the latest tally.

    “The number of open jobs is higher than ever before, that’s absolutely
    contributing to why candidates are putting their toe in the water to see >>> what’s out there,” Blumsack said.

    As Covid vaccinations gain steam, so are plans to return to the office,
    which is driving more workers to consider their options.

    In a survey of more than 350 CEOs and human resources and finance
    leaders, 70% said they plan to have employees back in the office by the
    fall of this year — if not sooner — according to a report by staffing
    firm LaSalle Network.

    Here are the pros and cons of remote work
    Of the companies that are planning for office reentry, managing
    employees who want to continue working remotely is a top concern,
    LaSalle Network found.

    “If we see a wave of employees leaving, companies are going to have to
    figure it out,” Reitan said.

    Now, 9 out of 10 organizations will be combining remote and on-site
    working, according to a separate McKinsey survey. Most companies,
    however, said they’ve haven’t hammered out the specifics of what that
    will look like.

    Face masks are set to be made voluntary under plans to end most
    coronavirus restrictions on July 19.

    Boris Johnson is pushing for the lifting of mask laws in almost all
    settings to help return life to 'as near normal as possible'.

    Key social distancing measures, including the one-metre rule, the rule
    of six and the 30-person limit on the size of outdoor gatherings, are
    also set to be scrapped on the new 'Freedom Day'.

    The Mail revealed today that ministers have shelved plans to require
    mass events such as festivals to use Covid passports to control entry.

    And last night it emerged that even nightclubs may be allowed to reopen
    on July 19 without the need to test customers at the door, as part of a
    new 'freedom plan' that could be published by the Prime Minister as soon >>> as next week.

    The proposals reflect growing confidence in Government that the
    vaccination rollout has severely weakened the link between infections,
    and hospitalisations and deaths.

    Covid cases are continuing to surge across the country.

    Yesterday, 26,068 new cases were recorded – a rise of almost 70 per cent >>> in a week, and the highest figure since late January.

    Chief medical officer Chris Whitty told the Cabinet this week that the
    rise in Covid cases was not putting unsustainable pressure on hospitals
    in England.

    A source said Professor Whitty and chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick
    Vallance had suggested 'we should get as much open this summer as
    possible before winter, which will be much more difficult'. Professor
    Whitty, one of the architects of lockdown, was said to be 'cautiously
    optimistic' that rules could now go – but warned that the winter would
    be 'challenging' for the NHS.

    Government sources said 'final decisions' had not been made, but
    acknowledged that Mr Johnson is pushing to scrap as many rules as
    possible +5

    The Prime Minister has ordered officials to prioritise the removal of
    the one-metre rule, which affects hospitality and is viewed as the most
    economically damaging measure still in place.

    Covid has slashed life expectancy by three YEARS in the North West of
    England
    The high number of people dying from Covid in the North West has caused
    the life expectancy of men and women in the region to decline by a
    combined 2.8 years, a study has found.

    A report published today by the University College London found a high
    Covid mortality rate and deprivation contributed to a decline in life
    expectancy in the North West region, which was larger than the average
    in England.

    Life expectancy dropped across England last year by an average of 1.3
    years for men and 0.9 years for women, but it decreased even more in the >>> North West, where it fell by 1.6 years for men and 1.2 years for women.

    The report also found that people in Manchester were 24 per cent more
    likely to die from Covid than the rest of England.

    Researchers calculated that 307 men and 195 women per 100,000 in Greater >>> Manchester died from Covid between March 2020 and April 2021.

    This was higher than the rest of England where 233.1 men and 142 women
    per 100,000 died from the virus in the same period.

    Professor Sir Michael Marmot, director of the IHE, said the area's high
    death rates and 'particularly damaging long-term economic and social
    effects' will damage health and widen health inequalities unless action
    is taken.

    His report proposes that the government should invest in jobs, housing,
    local services and education to tackle these long-term problems.

    It comes are the North West battles the biggest Covid outbreak in
    England, fuelled by the Indian 'Delta' variant.

    The region recorded 21 deaths in the week up to June 18 - more than any
    other area of the country - according to figures released yesterday by
    the Office for National Statistics.

    Separate data from the Department of Health shows that the region was
    responsible for 3,720 of the 14,608 infections recorded in England on
    Thursday.


    But ministers are also increasingly confident that face masks will not
    be required in shops and on public transport, although they may remain
    mandatory in hospitals. Sources said it was possible that travellers
    could still be encouraged to voluntarily wear masks on public transport
    even after the legal restrictions have been lifted.

    Asked whether the requirement to wear a mask in shops and offices would
    go on July 19, the Prime Minister's official spokesman said: 'We aim to
    remove as many restrictions as is safe to do so.'

    Government sources said 'final decisions' had not been made, but
    acknowledged that Mr Johnson is pushing to scrap as many rules as possible. >>>
    Some officials remain cautious about scrapping mask laws at a time when
    new infections are soaring, and Sir Patrick has previously warned that
    the rules may be needed again this winter, even if they are ditched next >>> month.

    A review of social distancing rules by Michael Gove is said to have
    concluded that even nightclubs, which are deemed so high risk they have
    been unable to open since March last year, would get the green light to
    open their doors without restrictions.

    A source said Mr Gove had decided it would be 'too much hassle' to ask
    late-night customers to take a Covid test to go dancing.

    But Sage committee scientist Professor Stephen Reicher warned that
    ministers were in danger of making 'the same mistakes as last summer'
    when indoor hospitality was reopened in July, accompanied by a big back
    to work push, leading to rocketing infections.

    It comes after it emerged tens of millions of Britons could be offered a >>> third Covid jab in as little as two months under fresh guidance issued
    by No10's top advisers last night.

    The Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI) said the
    booster scheme should start in September and could see 23million
    over-50s, vulnerable Britons and NHS and care home staff offered another >>> dose.

    Extra vaccines would be rolled out in two stages — prioritising those
    most at risk of Covid — and patients are expected to be offered
    whichever jab they were originally inoculated with. However, officials
    have not ruled out a potential 'mix and match' vaccine schedule.

    It will coincide with the annual influenza inoculation programme, which
    health officials say will be vital this winter amid warnings of a
    difficult flu season.

    The interim advice has been drawn up to ensure the NHS is prepared for
    any possible booster campaign in the autumn, while officials await more
    data on whether a third jab will be needed.

    Ministers are expected to make a decision on whether to go ahead with
    the programme in the coming weeks.

    Newly appointed Health Secretary Sajid Javid said he 'welcomed' the new
    guidance, which could 'help us ensure we are ready in our preparations
    for autumn'.

    And Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, England's deputy chief medical officer,
    said it would keep Britain on the 'front foot' in the fight against Covid. >>>
    JCVI sources said data suggested Covid jabs spark immunity that lasts
    for at least six months in the 'majority' of cases, but there are fears
    this could fade later in the year which could trigger a spike in
    hospitalisations and deaths.

    An Oxford University trial looking at booster doses suggested a third
    shot six months after the second could restore peak immunity against Covid. >>>
    It comes after Professor Chris Whitty reportedly told a Cabinet meeting
    yesterday that England is on course to lift the remaining Covid
    restrictions on July 19 'Freedom Day'. And Boris Johnson sounded
    increasingly bullish that restrictions would be lifted as planned at
    PMQs today saying Britain has 'a higher wall of vaccination than
    virtually any other country in the world'.

    The UK today recorded more than 20,000 cases for the third day in a row, >>> but deaths from the virus continued to drop in a sure sign the vaccines
    are working. But scientists today warned England could face a spike in
    Covid cases in the coming weeks because of the Three Lions' success at
    the Euro 2020s, although this is not expected to translate into a surge
    in hospitalisations and deaths.

    Just one in 100 NHS beds were being taken up by Covid patients in
    England last week — fourteen times fewer than at the start of the second >>> wave, according to official figures highlighting the power of the vaccines. >>

    Lockdown killed my mother – and thousands like her

    Lockdown killed my mother – and thousands like her
    Text settings

    I barely recognised my mother when I saw her in the hospital bed the
    night she died. It had been many months since we were last able to meet, >>> when she was still a force of nature. Now there was almost nothing left
    of her. The death certificate records that Elizabeth Carol Chamberlain
    died of dementia and kidney disease aged 88. But it was lockdown that
    really killed her.
    For my parents, like so many people of their generation living out their >>> later years in care homes, lockdown offered not protection but
    imprisonment. ‘It’s cruel,’ Mam would say, over and over again, in the
    painful and awkward phone calls that we shared over the last year or so. >>> ‘Just cruel.’ ‘What have you been doing?’ ‘Nothing. Staring at the walls.’ >>> Both my parents had been in and out of care homes and hospital over the
    past year. My mother had been sliding into dementia for a while, though
    she could be lucid and sharp as a tack when the mood took her. My
    father, Les, had recently suffered a stroke, so had been taken into
    hospital from the care home where they lived.
    Gloucestershire’s hospitals would not allow visitors in, and the care
    home would not allow residents out, so they were separated once more.
    But after 63 years of marriage, this would be the last time. Convinced
    that they would never see each other again, Mam had no wish to go on.
    She decided to stop eating or drinking and died four days later.
    Her funeral last month was a sad and strange affair. Everyone had to
    wear a mask unless they were standing to speak. Singing wasn’t allowed.
    We all had to be socially distanced. There were about a dozen people in
    attendance. In normal times, there would have been many more, because
    Mam touched the lives of so many people.
    She had left a very clear set of instructions for a simple funeral and
    had asked for three hymns, including ‘Away in a Manger’, because it was
    a favourite and she was called Carol. As the curtains started to close
    around the coffin and the first bars of ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’ were
    played on the organ, my dad said ‘To hell with this’, and we sang
    anyway. Just him and me.
    Both my parents felt that throughout the pandemic, the balance of risks
    had been wrong. They could not understand why the focus on avoiding
    Covid-19 now trumped everything else. As care-home residents, they felt
    that they had become collateral damage in an increasingly politicised
    debate. More than anything, they felt forgotten.
    Like thousands of other care-home residents, they were asked to sign Do
    Not Resuscitate letters at the outset. And like thousands of others,
    they agreed, because they didn’t want to be a bother to anyone. Those
    letters — and the decision to decant hundreds of untested pensioners out >>> of their hospital beds and back into care homes — showed just how
    expendable they and their generation were considered to be.
    Those who survived were shut away, denied visitors, left to believe that >>> they had been abandoned. Many, like my mother, became profoundly
    depressed. They died in their thousands, often alone. My mother was
    right about how cruel this was.
    If my parents needed to leave the care home for treatment in hospital,
    they were forced on their return to isolate for two weeks in their
    rooms. On one occasion, this solitary confinement nearly did for Dad
    too. After being sent to hospital for tests, he was placed back into a
    room on his own away from Mam. Over the next few days, he complained
    repeatedly about being in pain, but attempts to get a GP to enter the
    care home were rebuffed. I don’t know how the phone triage system works
    but I’d guess that an 87-year-old in a care home doesn’t go to the front >>> of the queue. By the time he was rushed into hospital, he was badly
    dehydrated and his kidneys were failing. The staff were wonderful and he >>> pulled through, but it was hard not to feel that his life was not
    regarded as a priority.
    Once, frustrated and furious, Mam broke out of the home. She toddled off >>> down the street just as the schools emptied out. She would have loved
    seeing all the children, who would have been the same age as those she
    used to teach. But her reward was to be placed back into isolation ‘to
    protect the other residents’. She pointed out to me that the staff still >>> moved back and forth between the home and the outside world without
    restriction.
    Sometimes she would call, distressed, demanding that I drive down from
    Scotland to rescue them. I did, once, dodging through the back roads of
    north Wales on a lockdown--evading mission to spring them from the home
    they regarded as their prison. It was the only time they had been
    allowed into the outside world since the start of the lockdown, other
    than for medical attention. We stopped by the promenade so they could
    see the sea. I wondered then whether it might be the last time.
    Then it was all over. They told me it was peaceful in the end. Inside
    Dad’s hospital room, behind the closed door and with the blinds drawn, I >>> broke the news to him about Mam and we hugged, because that’s what
    humans do. I don’t really know whether it was permitted: there were so
    many restrictions. A couple of days later I spoke to the medical
    examiner determining the cause of death. ‘I think I’ll say dementia,’ he >>> said. ‘Well, OK, but it was lockdown really,’ I said. ‘She was killed by >>> lockdown.’ He sighed and said they heard that a lot now.
    On Father’s Day, I spoke to my dad. ‘Are you doing anything nice?’ I
    asked. ‘Well, no, I’m still in quarantine after the funeral.’
    ‘Quarantine? But the funeral was nearly two weeks ago.’ Since the
    funeral, Dad has been confined to a room barely 12ft by 12ft, without
    being allowed out for exercise or anything else. Like the other
    residents, he has been double-vaccinated. ‘They say they’ll let me out
    tomorrow. They said those were the rules.’

    Sajid Javid: World leaders have acted like panicked shoppers hoarding

    Health Secretary’s comments, made in a research paper, accuse
    governments of ‘herd behaviour’ in the face of Covid pandemic

    Sajid Javid confirms final stage of lockdown is 19 July, pledging an
    'exciting new journey'

    Sajid Javid accused world leaders of “herd behaviour” in their response
    to the coronavirus pandemic and likened them to panicked shoppers who
    hoarded toilet paper, The Telegraph can reveal.
    The new Health Secretary made the comments in a research paper in
    December 2020 that he produced in his role as a senior fellow at Harvard >>> Kennedy School.
    Mr Javid, who this week ruled out any further extension of Covid
    restrictions beyond July 19, also spoke of the need for the economic
    responses to the virus to be “overhauled”.
    His comments are likely to add to the optimism of some Conservative MPs
    that Mr Javid will take a less hardline approach to lockdowns than his
    predecessor Matt Hancock, who resigned last week.
    Governments of democratic industrialised nations demonstrated “herd
    behaviour” by allowing the existing policies of other countries to
    dictate their virus response, the former Chancellor argued.
    “Many factors that took place during Covid provided heightened
    conditions for herd behaviour ... crisis, fear, volatility and
    uncertainty all increase [its] likelihood,” Mr Javid wrote.
    “Or the interaction between global leaders’ identity grouping and
    decision making, as the fact that other types of herd behaviour were
    observed in most populations – e.g. hoarding of toilet paper – and the
    market (massive volatility).
    “If indeed herd behaviour took place, it would be important to consider
    how this behavior can negatively impact equilibria, for example giving
    ‘first movers’ outsized influence in a final equilibrium.”
    Eastern countries have responded better than West
    Mr Javid’s research concludes that “behavioural differences in human
    contact” explain why South Korea and Taiwan’s rates of infection have
    been significantly lower than those in Western countries.
    He cited mask-wearing, “obesity differences in East versus West” and the >>> contrast between bowing and hugging as factors that account for the
    higher levels of cases, hospitalisations and deaths in the UK and Spain. >>> On Britain’s multiple lockdowns, he wrote: “The magnitude of the impact
    of Covid-19 is due in part to the economic and social pain that various

    “It is already clear that although the governments of developed

    PROFILE

    Born:
    Rochdale, 5 December 1969 (age 51)

    An aversion to trade-offs – including weighing up the needs of the
    economy against the health of the population – was among the “dangerous” >>> biases shown by politicians during a crisis, he added.
    Other trade-offs identified in the research include health versus
    privacy, health versus property rights and “optimism bias versus risk
    averseness”.
    Mr Javid said the about-turns that had characterised much of the UK
    Government’s response to the virus were an “essential feature of good
    policy making” in light of new and changeable information, but added
    politicians must do more to defend U-turns’ “healthy role within
    democracies”.
    Taking to the Despatch Box on Monday, he told MPs that no date of
    restrictions was risk-free and that Britons must learn to live with the
    virus.
    “Make no mistake, the restrictions on our freedoms must come to an end,” >>> he said. “We owe it to the British people not to wait a moment longer
    than we need to.”
    Mr Javid’s appointment to his new role has cheered lockdown sceptics on
    the Tory back benches. He was the most high-profile Conservative
    politician to call for a reopening of the economy in May 2020.

    Will Sajid Javid make a better Health Secretary
    than Matt Hancock?

    Yes: He is savvy, experienced and economically literate

    No: Coming into the job at this stage will be a struggle

    VOTES
    The following month, Mr Javid authored a separate report for the Centre
    for Policy Studies think-tank which offered 63 different recommendations >>> about restoring economic growth.
    He used his introduction to the research paper to insist that the focus
    of the ministers “must shift from safeguarding the economy to rebuilding >>> it”.
    Proposals included significant temporary cuts to employer’s National
    Insurance, major planning law reform and fast-tracking plans for
    infrastructure projects.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in

    School bubbles could be brought back to tackle Covid outbreaks
    A record 641,200 pupils have been forced to miss school in England as a
    result of Covid isolation rules

    Government scraps Covid bubbles in schools from 19 July

    Campaign for Children
    The number of pupils forced to miss school owing to Covid has hit over
    600,000, the latest figures show, as it emerged that bubbles could be
    brought back if there is a cluster of cases.
    A record 641,200 pupils are off school in England as a result of Covid – >>> up from 385,500 the previous week and the highest since classes went
    back in March.
    The number includes 471,000 who have been forced to self-isolate because >>> of a case at school – a 69 per cent increase in the space of a week.
    On June 28, The Telegraph launched a campaign calling on ministers to
    put children first as the country recovers from its Covid lockdowns,
    with action to bring an end to the disruption in schools.
    On Tuesday, Gavin Williamson, the Education Secretary, confirmed plans
    to end bubbles on July 19, meaning an entire class or year group would
    not need to be sent home for 10 days each time a pupil in their cohort
    tested positive.
    Almost one in ten pupils was out of school on July 1

    But detailed guidance published on Tuesday night by the Department for
    Education (DfE) said schools "may wish" to continue with bubbles until
    the end of the summer term.
    It also said it "may become necessary to reintroduce bubbles" for a
    temporary period if there is a Covid outbreak. Schools are told to
    contact their local public health teams to report a potential outbreak
    if they have several confirmed cases within 14 days.
    The guidance says any decision to recommend the reintroduction of
    bubbles should not be taken lightly and should "take account of the
    detrimental impact they can have on the delivery of education". It adds
    that a student who has Covid symptoms can be refused entry to school if
    a headteacher believes that is "necessary" to protect other pupils and
    staff.
    Teachers should make these decisions on a case-by-case basis and use
    their "reasonable judgment".
    Figures published by the DfE show that 8.5 per cent of all children in
    England were not at school last Thursday for a Covid-related reason, a
    rise from 5.1 per cent the week before.
    There are now 28,000 children who have tested positive for Covid, up >>>from 15,000 the week before, the DfE data shows.
    Mr Williamson told the Commons that, from July 19, schools would no
    longer need to stagger the start and end of the day, nor would children
    need to have separate break times.
    "While the pandemic is not over, we are moving into a new phase of the
    pandemic from strict rules towards greater personal responsibility," he
    said.
    He added that "children are better off in their classroom, with their
    friends and teachers", noting that "they have given up so much to keep
    the older generation safe".
    Restrictions on face-to-face teaching in universities will also end on
    July 19 unless there are local outbreaks, he added.

    In full: Boris Johnson announces England's final Covid lockdown easing

    From Aug 16, children will be exempt from self-isolation after coming
    into contact with someone who tested positive. Instead, they would be
    contacted by NHS Test and Trace who would notify them of the contact and >>> advise them to take a test.
    Students will be expected to come to school unless they have tested
    positive for Covid or have symptoms.
    During the autumn term, schools will still be expected to have extensive >>> cleaning regimes in place and also to make sure buildings are well
    ventilated.
    Mr Williamson came under fire from Tory MPs after announcing that
    twice-weekly testing for secondary school pupils will continue in September.
    Felicity Buchan, the Conservative MP for Kensington, said tno one wants
    to see testing in schools "in perpetuity".
    Mark Harper, who chairs the Covid Recovery Group, also questioned why
    testing will remain in place during the autumn term, saying: "When
    schools return in September, every adult will have had the chance to be
    vaccinated once at least, which provides the bulk of protection – so why >>> is regular testing still going to continue, perhaps forever?"
    Headteachers criticised plans for the autumn term, saying that
    ventilating classrooms is "easier said than done" when it is the middle
    of winter and too cold to keep windows open.

    Ending coronavirus restrictions will make us healthier, says Sajid Javid >>> Eleni Courea, Political Reporter

    Sajid Javid referenced a rise in domestic violence and mental health
    concerns in an argument for ending restrictions this month
    Sajid Javid referenced a rise in domestic violence and mental health
    concerns in an argument for ending restrictions this month
    VICKIE FLORES/EPA
    Lifting lockdown restrictions will make the country healthier, Sajid
    Javid said today as ministers prepare to scrap the remaining lockdown
    rules on July 19.
    In a significant departure from his predecessor Matt Hancock, the health >>> secretary said that for him the health arguments for ending lockdown are >>> “equally compelling” as the economic ones.
    “I know many people will be cautious about the easing of restrictions –
    that’s completely understandable. But no date we choose will ever come
    without risk, so we have to take a broad and balanced view,” he wrote in >>> a column for the Mail on Sunday.
    He wrote that the government’s restrictions had “caused a shocking rise
    in domestic violence and a terrible impact on so many people’s mental
    health”.
    Following his appointment a week ago, after Hancock quit over an affair
    with an aide that breached social distancing guidance, Javid said he
    wanted to see restrictions lifted “as quickly as possible.”
    “I see two immediate challenges. The first is how we restore our
    freedoms and learn to live with Covid-19. The second is to tackle the
    NHS backlog – something that we know is going to get far worse before it >>> gets better,” he wrote.
    It comes amid concerns that a growing number of doctors wanting to work
    part-time could lead to huge staff shortages in the health service.
    The Royal College of Physicians said that more than a quarter of senior
    consultant physicians are expected to retire in the next three years,
    many within 18 months.
    Meanwhile just over half of trainees entering the NHS are interested in
    working part-time. A fifth of doctors already work part-time and this
    trend looks likely to increase in popularity, according to the college.
    Its poll of 1,523 medics found 43 per cent of doctors have not yet
    reverted to their original working pattern because of the pandemic, and
    that some 57 per cent are working from home at least some of the time.
    More than 60 per cent want opportunities for remote IT access, online
    meetings and remote working to be available in the future.
    Speaking ahead of the NHS’s 73rd birthday tomorrow, Andrew Goddard,
    president of the RCP, said: “It is right that we should celebrate the
    achievements of healthcare staff during the pandemic as we mark the
    NHS’s birthday, but the pressures we have faced have been greater than
    they needed to be because of existing staffing shortages.
    “If we do not address this problem, we will have much less to celebrate
    in future.
    “The NHS has recognised that and wants to offer flexible working — but
    it is stuck in a true Catch-22 situation where it cannot do the very
    thing needed to attract more staff because it doesn’t have enough staff
    at the moment.”
    The RCP said medical school places need to be doubled to avoid staff
    shortages worsening in the future.

    Covid in Scotland: Glasgow Life to cut 500 jobs due to venue closures
    Published16 hours ago

    Riverside Museum
    IMAGE COPYRIGHTGETTY IMAGES
    image captionThe Riverside Museum is run by Glasgow Life
    About 500 jobs are to go at the organisation which runs libraries,
    museums and sports centres for Glasgow City Council.

    The Glasgow Life charity said it had lost £38m due to the closure of
    dozens of venues during the pandemic.

    Many of the facilities have been shut since last March and will not
    reopen before the end of this year.

    Glasgow Life said the job cuts would be made "over time" and would not
    involve compulsory redundancies.

    Instead, the not-for-profit organisation said it would target early
    retirement packages and voluntary redundancies.

    The attractions run by Glasgow Life for the council include Kelvingrove
    Art Gallery and Museum, the People's Palace, Riverside Museum and the
    Mitchell Library.

    Eighty of its 171 venues across the city remain shut.

    Call for clarity on future of Glasgow leisure venues
    Glasgow Life warns services face uncertain future
    A spokesperson for the charity said: "This cost-saving strategy is a
    vital part of the process of recovery Glasgow Life has been forced to
    undertake by the global pandemic."

    The statement said the recovery package was being supported by Glasgow
    City Council through its £100m funding guarantee for the next five years. >>>
    However, it said it was "unrealistic to expect that it can raise
    significant additional income this year that will support the reopening
    of venues beyond the 91 already announced".

    "Glasgow Life will be a very different organisation at the end of this
    period," the spokesperson added.

    "We are asking staff for flexibility during this process and are
    regularly updating them through internal communications and briefings >>>from their managers; and unions are also regularly updated."

    Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

    image captionKelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland's
    most popular visitor attractions
    After Glasgow City Council set its budget in March, a spokesman for the
    GMB union said a decision to cut £5m from the fee paid to Glasgow Life
    would "put local services and livelihoods under even greater pressure".

    The charity has been able to furlough some staff, whose pay is linked to >>> its own income, not the council's service fee.

    At the end of November 2020, the charity had claimed £6.7m and 751
    people remained on the scheme.

    Glasgow Life is an "arms-length" charitable trust which was established
    by Glasgow City Council more than a decade ago.

    The trust took over the council's galleries, museums, libraries and
    sports facilities with the idea there would be more opportunities to
    generate commercial income outside direct council control.

    Malaysia’s ‘Total Lockdown’ Failure Plunges Hospitals Into Crisis
    A COVID-19 surge is overwhelming many of Malaysia’s intensive care
    units, as rivalries among politicians allow a disaster to unfold.

    When Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced a nationwide total
    lockdown in May to battle a surge in COVID-19 infections, Malaysia’s
    healthcare system was already in critical condition.

    The country was struggling to contain a more recent outbreak of the
    coronavirus driven by more contagious variants, and worsened by
    gatherings ahead of Eid al-Fitr.

    By the end of May, the country’s average daily cases per capita
    surpassed that of India as new single-day infections breached the 9,000
    mark. Daily deaths had also peaked at 98 cases on May 29, with health
    chief Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah calling it a “dark moment” for the nation. >>>
    Hospitals across the country, particularly in the Klang Valley, were
    running close to capacity as the influx of patient arrivals triggered a
    shortage of intensive care unit (ICU) beds and staff to provide adequate >>> care for patients.

    Healthcare workers in Kuala Lumpur had to turn patients away, given that >>> COVID-19 care takes priority, while in the northern state of Kedah,
    doctors were left to decide who gets a chance to live due to the state’s >>> limited number of ICU beds.

    Health officials resorted to unconventional measures to cope with the
    surge in COVID-19 cases and death, which included the deployment of
    military-built field ICUs and the utilization of shipping containers as
    makeshift morgues. Soon after, the nation went into “total lockdown.”

    The first 14 days of the full lockdown brought new infections down to as >>> low as 4,900 amid reduced testing in most states. As testing for the
    virus continued to drop in the weeks after, reports of new cases also
    decreased, albeit at a slower rate.

    At this point, health experts warned of a rise in COVID-19 hospital
    admissions involving younger adults who were brought in critically ill
    with the disease.

    Dr. Benedict Sim Lim Heng, an infectious disease consultant at Sungai
    Buloh Hospital – the country’s primary hospital for COVID-19 – said the
    majority of patients who required critical care were now aged between 40 >>> and 60, with a significant number in their 20s and 30s.

    “We are seeing young patients being brought in at the most advanced
    stage of the disease, people in their 30s and 40s being brought in and
    put on life support machines,” Sim said. “The situation has actually
    turned scarier. It is quite dire at times.”

    As it turns out, the country’s COVID-19 situation was not getting any
    better and the misleading toll of confirmed cases had shifted the
    attention away from a rapidly evolving public health crisis.

    In recent weeks, pictures and videos of overwhelmed hospitals in the
    Klang Valley have been shared online. One video showed at least a dozen
    patients on metal row chairs sharing oxygen supplies at the emergency
    department of Tuanku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang. Another showed
    bodies of COVID-19 victims being placed in a holding room as morgues
    overflowed.

    Several hospitals have converted their parking lots into emergency units >>> to accommodate more patients, stretching exhausted medical workers thin. >>> Many healthcare workers are suffering from compassion fatigue due to the >>> prolonged stress of dealing with COVID-19. Others who are reeling from
    burnout and exasperated by the lack of top-level support are calling it
    quits.

    On July 10, Malaysia set a new record for the second consecutive day
    with 9,353 COVID-19 infections. Its total of more than 830,000 confirmed >>> cases is the highest per million people in Southeast Asia – at least
    twice the caseload per capita in Indonesia – though lack of testing
    means that the number is vastly below the real toll.

    By official count, over 6,100 people have now died from the coronavirus
    in Malaysia, of which 55 percent reported during the current “total
    lockdown” period. To put it simply, about 85 people with the coronavirus >>> have died per day on average since the lockdown began on June 1.

    The brutal toll of the virus inside hospital ICUs, as told through
    stories and images shared anonymously by desperate frontline workers,
    show the extent of the havoc being wreaked in the country. Many are
    blaming the near collapse of the healthcare system on the government’s
    “half-baked” lockdown measures, which have only exacerbated infections.

    The government’s decision to allow 18 manufacturing sectors to operate
    mainly at 60 percent capacity created favorable conditions for virus
    outbreaks at factories and workers’ dormitories. Workplace clusters have >>> emerged as a key source of COVID-19 infection in Malaysia, with the bulk >>> of the clusters identified linked to the industrial sector.

    Insufficient testing has also resulted in early infections going
    undetected, especially among young adults, until they rapidly
    deteriorate. Public health experts and health advocates have long
    stressed the need for large-scale testing to run hand in hand with
    restriction orders.

    Over the course of the lockdown period, the national positive rate
    (share of tests that returned positive for COVID-19) has remained above
    the World Health Organization (WHO)’s maximum 5 percent benchmark. This
    indicates that Malaysia is not testing enough people to contain the
    outbreak.

    Opposition coalition Pakatan Harapan’s health committee recently
    declared the lockdown a complete failure, with movement restrictions
    unlikely to contain a fourth COVID-19 wave.

    Foreign trade chambers have also voiced concerns about how the pandemic
    is being managed in Malaysia, while an army general said the country’s
    COVID-19 response lacked coordination and speed.

    Many say the government has had misplaced priorities. As cases soared,
    Muhyiddin announced shifts in cabinet positions in a bid to ease
    tensions in the ruling coalition, ahead of the United Malays National
    Organization (UMNO)’s decision to withdraw support from his Perikatan
    Nasional (PN) coalition last week.

    In the shift, Defense Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob, UMNO’s most senior
    figure in cabinet, was made deputy prime minister. Foreign Minister
    Hishammuddin Hussein, another UMNO stalwart, has been promoted as Senior >>> Minister for Foreign Affairs and will take over Ismail’s role as chief
    security officer.

    The two UMNO lawmakers are part of a faction within the party that is
    more aligned towards Muhyiddin’s government. Another faction, headed by
    UMNO president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, has resolved to break away from the
    PN coalition and is reportedly teaming up with Anwar Ibrahim’s Pakatan
    Harapan coalition to form a new government.

    The country’s Attorney General Idris Harun has maintained that there are >>> no “clear facts” that the premier has lost his majority. This means that >>> Muhyiddin’s leadership still stands until it is proven otherwise in
    parliament, which will sit from July 26 for five days.

    As COVID-19 continues to rage in Malaysia, anger towards the government
    is growing. For most Malaysians, whether Muhyiddin can survive this
    crisis after 15 months in power is less urgent than whether they can. As >>> politicians bicker, Malaysians are left to fend for themselves.

    L.A. County again requiring masks indoors starting Saturday amid
    coronavirus spike
    NEWS
    by: Nouran Salahieh, Wendy Burch, Mary Beth McDade

    Posted: Jul 15, 2021 / 02:09 PM PDT / Updated: Jul 16, 2021 / 05:55 AM PDT >>>
    Los Angeles County is reimplementing its mask mandate indoors —
    regardless of vaccination status— amid an increase in coronavirus case
    numbers and concerns over the delta variant, officials announced Thursday. >>>
    The new masking order goes into effect 11:59 p.m. on Saturday.

    “We’re not where we need to be for the millions at risk of infection
    here in Los Angeles County, and waiting to do something will be too
    late, given what we’re seeing,” L.A. County Health Officer Dr. Muntu
    Davis said in a briefing with reporters.

    L.A. County has seen several consecutive days with more than 1,000 new
    cases reported daily amid a “rapid and sustained” spike in the number of >>> infections. The county recorded 1,537 new coronavirus cases Thursday — a >>> 83% increase over the last week, according to Davis.

    L.A. County sees spike in coronavirus cases
    “Masking indoors must again become a normal practice by all, regardless
    of vaccination status, so they can stop the trends and level of
    transmission we’re currently seeing,” Davis said.

    It’s unclear how long the new mask requirements will remain in effect.
    “We expect to keep this order in place until we begin to see
    improvements,” Davis said.

    L.A. County’s new order comes after the health department on June 28
    started “strongly recommending” that people wear masks indoors in public >>> places. The move came just two weeks after Gov. Gavin Newsom lifted the
    statewide mask mandate.

    “We took a chance in terms of lifting the physical distancing
    requirements as well as the capacity limits. We changed the masking at
    the time. We felt it was reasonable to do given the level of community
    transmission that we had at that moment,” Davis said. “But this is not
    the same situation. We’re in a very different situation. This is not the >>> same as what it was June 15.”

    Now, L.A. County is ranked as having “substantial” coronavirus community >>> transmission.

    The fear is that more people will die of COVID-19 as hospitalization
    numbers increase, according to Davis.

    He said the pandemic is still being driven by unvaccinated people, and
    vaccination rates are low in the communities where transmission is
    rising fastest.

    Recovery from the pandemic is also complicated by the spread of the
    delta coronavirus variant, now California’s dominant coronavirus strain. >>> The variant became a source for concern as it was found to be more
    contagious than even the other highly contagious variants reported.

    “Given that slightly under 4 million L.A. County residents are not
    vaccinated, the risk of increased spread of this variant within our
    county remains high,” the health officer said.

    “It’s just disappointing that overall vaccination numbers are lower than >>> we need them to be,” Davis said.

    Asked if there could be more restrictions coming to L.A. County, Davis
    said “anything is on the table if things continue to get worse.”

    Officials said the county’s Health Officer Order will be updated to
    outline the masking requirements by Friday.

    The county on Saturday reported 1,827 new cases of the virus, and a
    testing positivity rate of 3.7%. The number of people who tested
    positive for the virus was near 0.5% on June 15, when the state lifted
    most restrictions on capacity and mandates for masking that were
    intended to stem the spread of COVID-19.

    The rate of transmission has “rapidly increased to very concerning
    levels,” officials said in a statement.

    Long Beach’s numbers are even more dire: On Friday, officials reported a >>> 331% increase in average daily cases since July 4, and an 860% increase
    since June 15.

    The city’s positivity rate is now 4.1%, with case rate of 9 per 100,000
    residents. That is still well below the peak of cases, hospitalizations
    and deaths reported in January, but significantly above the numbers seen >>> on June 15, when the case rate was 1.2.



    The quick spread of the virus promoted city and county health officials
    to issue a new health order this week requiring masks indoors,
    regardless of a person’s vaccination status. (Long Beach’s amended
    health order, which goes into effect at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, can be
    viewed here.)

    Masks will be required in all indoor public places, venues, gatherings,
    and businesses (including offices, retail, restaurants, theaters, family >>> entertainment centers, meetings, and state and local government
    offices). Dining indoors is still allowed, and the county and city have
    not placed any restrictions on capacity.

    Health officials attribute the quick escalation of cases to a number of
    factors, including intermingling among unmasked people who may or may
    not be vaccinated, as well as a new, more contagious strain of the virus >>> known as the “delta variant.”

    Close to one-third of eligible people over 12 have not been vaccinated
    against COVID-19 in Long Beach. In Los Angeles County as a whole,
    roughly 4 million people have not been vaccinated, including 1.3 million >>> children under 12.

    “While vaccinations are by far the most powerful tool we have, we are
    nowhere near herd immunity,” Barbara Ferrer, director of the county
    Department of Public Health, said in a statement Saturday.

    Welcome to Britain’s reign of permanent terror, Covid-style. We have
    become a nation addicted to fear, that relishes turning every triumph
    into a disaster, every hope into a worry, every freedom into a danger.

    We should be celebrating humanity’s brilliant, speedy defanging of a
    terrible new virus, the drastic reduction in its ability to kill, the
    millions of lives saved globally; instead, we are driving ourselves mad
    with an absurd pingdemic, a botched “freedom day”, holiday chaos and
    utter, abject confusion about the current risk posed by Covid. For
    reasons that defy comprehension, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the
    Opposition and the Chancellor, together with countless others, are all
    simultaneously in self-isolation. If that is victory, or an armistice,
    against the coronavirus, then what does defeat look like?

    The reality is that thanks to the vaccines, Covid, including in its
    delta variant, has been downgraded and is on the verge of becoming
    normalised. It will now surely become endemic like influenza, which
    kills some 17,000 in England in an average year and often a lot fewer.
    Covid’s ongoing toll is likely to be roughly similar; a mature, embedded >>> virus would not require contact tracing and endlessly pinging apps, but
    the adult population would need to remain up to date with vaccinations,
    including jabs configured to protect against the latest variants.

    Why, then, the continued panic? Why are so many still behaving as if we
    were in March 2020, when we looked on aghast at pictures of collapsing
    Italian hospitals, realising that our complacent world was about to be
    upended? The lure of turning back the clock, of the risk-free zero-Covid >>> society, an impossibility even if every human being in the word were
    double-jabbed, looms large over our public consciousness.

    It shouldn’t. The radical reduction in the danger posed by the virus is
    primarily down to the fact that 68.8 per cent of over-18s in England are >>> now double-jabbed. In addition, some 91.9 per cent of the adult
    population would test positive for antibodies, suggesting they have had
    the infection or are at least single-jabbed.

    Such elevated levels of protection 16 months after the start of the
    first UK lockdown would have been dismissed as hopelessly utopian last
    March, a time when some “experts” thought it might take up to a decade
    to invent, test and roll out a vaccine. The high rate of double-jabbing, >>> and the programme’s massive bias towards older, more vulnerable people,
    is the reason why there are drastically fewer deaths at this stage of
    the third wave than there were last time around. There were just 68
    fatalities in England announced on Wednesday.

    Yet this is still not good enough for the Zero Covid zealots. They deem
    even such low death numbers – which sadly, will continue to trend
    upwards for now – to be unacceptably high.

    Britain would never have locked down had the original wave been this
    mild, and yet there appears to be widespread support among swathes of
    the public for continuing with all sorts of precautions for as long as
    any risk of Covid remains – in practice, forever.

    The goalposts keep shifting in an entirely unreasonable, absolutist
    manner. We entered lockdowns because the Government feared 500,000
    people would die; today, opponents of the “Freedom Day” measures would
    reimpose massive restrictions to avoid 1 per cent of that death toll or
    even less. Boris Johnson feared the NHS would implode, killing tens of
    thousands more; today’s Zero Coviders don’t want a single operation to
    be rescheduled or a single ward to be busy, even though the NHS’
    structural flaws means this keeps happening.

    The original aim was to vaccinate the elderly and vulnerable, and then
    the over-60s before we could open up society again. Yet the more radical >>> pro-lockdown voices first extended this to all over 40s, and then to
    everybody, including teenagers and perhaps even children, and in some
    cases not just in Britain but also abroad.

    They worry about Long Covid, and highlight that some of those who
    recover, including younger patients, suffer from persistent symptoms.
    While one must feel sorry for anybody in this condition, the scale of
    the issue doesn’t warrant maintaining or reimposing restrictions. The
    immuno-supressed are a greater problem, and more needs to be done to
    help them, but again not at the cost of reimposing restrictions.

    It is also possible that elevated case levels will accelerate the
    development of vaccine-escaping variants. This latter concern must be
    taken seriously, but the answer is for the Government to stand prepared
    to roll out further modified doses if this turns out to be the case. The >>> jab needs to be authorised, mass-produced and distributed to millions
    extremely quickly.

    For such a rational, amazing species, we are singularly unable to assess >>> risk correctly. This is at once a blessing and a debilitating pathology. >>> We need mad gamblers: if Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk hadn’t believed,
    against all the odds, that they could be successful, the tech revolution >>> would never have materialised, and neither would the age of private
    space travel. But errors work both ways: we can be too pessimistic as
    well as too optimistic. We were too relaxed about the risks of pandemics >>> prior to 2020, and now many people are too scared about the threat of
    Covid today.

    Another quirk of our psychology is at play here, too. For good reason,
    we don’t treat all deaths equally. We are fine with some, but utterly
    outraged about others, depending on whether we believe the death to be
    in the “fair” category, or caused directly or indirectly by human
    agency. We are relatively relaxed about cancer fatalities, especially
    among the elderly; but will go to war for one single terrorist attack.
    This generally makes sense, but is a serious challenge when it comes to
    moving on from Covid.

    If we are to start learning to live with the virus, the public needs to
    accept that, like car crashes or heart attacks, some fatalities from
    Covid are inevitable. If Boris Johnson and his government keep being
    held responsible for every death from the virus, even when all those who >>> want the vaccine have been double-jabbed, we will never break free from
    today’s fear-addled madness.

    The proportion of people aged 20 to 29 testing positive for Covid in
    England has hit record levels, officials say.

    Public Health England's figures show, in the last week, 1,155 people in
    their 20s tested positive for every 100,000 in the population.

    Experts say this is the highest rate of cases in any age group since
    mass-testing began and urge everyone in this group to get both jabs.

    It comes as data shows 59% of people in their 20s have had one jab.

    Meanwhile people aged 85 and above continue to be most likely to need
    hospital care.

    Dr Yvonne Doyle, medical director at Public Health England, said
    hospital admissions and deaths were not growing as quickly as in
    previous waves, but cases were on the rise and would be monitored.

    What do I need to know if I'm still not jabbed?
    'Remain cautious'
    The data covers 12 to 18 July, and looks at the average number of people >>> testing positive per 100,000 people of the same age in the population.

    It shows:

    Case numbers are rising across all age groups and regions
    Weekly levels are highest in the North East (952) and lowest in the
    South East (423)
    The lowest numbers are for those aged 80 and above, with a weekly rate
    of 61 per 100,000
    Dr Doyle added: "It is vital we all remain cautious.

    "Remember that meeting outside is safer than inside, get two doses of
    the vaccine as soon as you can, isolate if you are told to by NHS Test & >>> Trace and if you show symptoms stay home and get a PCR test."

    The rise in this age group will partly be because many people in their
    20s will not yet have had both jabs and because of greater chances to
    socialise as restrictions eased.

    graph showing vaccine rates by age
    The latest government data for England show around 59% of people in the
    20-29 age group have had at least one coronavirus jab.

    Across the UK 87.8% of the adult population has had one dose of the
    vaccine and 69.2% has had two doses.

    Vaccination figures are highest for the older age groups who were
    offered the jab earlier.

    Recent figures suggest the vaccination programme has reduced hospital
    admissions and deaths, with a fewer than one in 1,000 infections now

    Premier Kenney believes media should 'stop promoting fear when it comes
    to COVID-19'
    BY JOEYCHINI

    Posted Jul 22, 2021 1:58 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 22, 2021 at 7:46 pm MDT >>>
    SUMMARY

    The premier believes we should 'start actually looking at where we're at.' >>>
    CAMROSE, Alta. – Premier Jason Kenney says the province is in a good
    spot in the fight against COVID-19, and he believes it’s time for media
    to stop promoting fear when it comes to the virus.

    The premier was addressing his tweet from this past weekend which
    celebrated the success of the stampede—stating it was the first major
    event in Canada ‘after the pandemic’.


    Many people, including several health experts, took issue with the
    Premier’s phrasing, they say we are not through with this virus yet.

    READ MORE: Experts concerned over Alberta government’s comments about
    pandemic moving to ‘endemic’
    “We are now three weeks into that full openness,” said the premier,
    referring to Alberta’s Open for Summer Plan. “And I’m very encouraged to >>> see that we continue to do very well.”

    While he acknowledges that the virus remains an issue, Kenney says there >>> has been a dramatic drop in covid numbers, and it’s time we all start
    looking at where Alberta is when it comes to the fight against COVID-19. >>>

    “Numbers will go up, and they’ll go down… What matters most is that the
    widespread protective effect of vaccines is real,” he said.

    “We should embrace the science, we should stop listening to people who
    deny the powerful protective effect of vaccines.”

    RELATED: Alberta identifies 81 new COVID-19 cases, active infections
    rise to 649
    Kenney says Alberta crushed the third wave and, even when cases rise,
    the case numbers will likely not merit the same response as before.

    “We have seen the numbers come down dramatically in Alberta, and we
    should salute that,” Kenney said.

    “Let me be blunt, I think it’s time for media to stop promoting fear
    when it comes to COVID-19, and to start actually looking at where we’re at.”

    According to the premier, we now have fewer people in hospital with
    COVID-19 than at any point in the past nine months. He adds that 75 per
    cent of eligible Albertans have gotten their first dose of vaccine, and
    within a week, he expects we’ll hit about 65 per cent of eligible people >>> fully vaccinated.

    “But most importantly, about 90 per cent of the vulnerable in Alberta,
    have been vaccinated–that is people over the age of 65–those are by far
    the most vulnerable individuals.”

    The premier says these numbers mean our healthcare system likely won’t
    face the same capacity issues we’ve seen in the past, should COVID cases

    Australians may face longer lockdown after "reckless" mass protests >Sonali Paul

    Summary
    New South Wales reports 141 new local cases, 2 deaths
    Victoria on track to ease curbs
    Australia secures 85 mln Pfizer booster shots
    MELBOURNE, July 25 (Reuters) - Australia's New South Wales logged its >second-highest daily increase of the year in locally acquired COVID-19 >cases on Sunday amid fears of a wave of new infections after thousands
    of people joined an anti-lockdown protest.

    "In relation to yesterday's protests, can I say how absolutely
    disgusted
    I was. It broke my heart," Gladys Berejiklian, the premier of the >country's most populous state, told reporters.

    "I hope it won't be a setback, but it could be," she said.

    There were 141 COVID-19 cases reported, down from 163 a day earlier.
    The
    outbreak, which began in June, is being driven by the highly contagious >Delta variant of the virus, and has now infected 2,081 people in New >South Wales. There are 43 people in intensive care, up from 37 a day >earlier.

    Under fire for a slow vaccine rollout, Prime Minister Scott Morrison
    said more vaccine supply was not going to ensure New South Wales gets
    out of lockdown, but what was needed was an effective, properly
    enforced
    lockdown.

    "Let me be clear - there's not an alternative to the lockdown in New >South Wales to get this under control. There is no other magic bullet >that's going to do that," Morrison told reporters at a televised media >conference.

    He called the anti-lockdown protests in Sydney reckless and
    self-defeating.

    While Berejiklian and other state leaders have blamed Canberra for the >slow vaccine rollout, critics have said NSW did not enforce its >stay-at-home orders, which has led to Delta variant leaks to other
    states.

    At least 38 of the new cases in NSW had spent time in the community
    while infectious, state health authorities said. Numbers of such cases >have stayed stubbornly high even after four weeks of lockdown in
    Sydney,
    now expected to be extended beyond July 30.

    The state reported two deaths overnight, including a woman in her 30s >with no pre-existing conditions.

    Despite its struggle with spikes of infections, Australia has
    managed to
    keep its epidemic largely under control with a total of about 32,600 >cases and 918 deaths.

    To help speed up vaccinations in Sydney, the government's official >adviser, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation
    (ATAGI), on Saturday changed its advice on the AstraZeneca vaccine, >urging anyone in the city under the age of 60 to strongly consider >getting vaccinated with it.

    ATAGI had previously advised against the AstraZeneca vaccine for people >under 60 due to concerns about blood clots.

    "In the context of the current risk of COVID-19 in NSW and with the >ongoing constraints on Comirnaty (Pfizer) vaccine supplies, all adults
    in greater Sydney should strongly consider the benefits of earlier >protection with COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca rather than waiting for >alternative vaccines," ATAGI said in a statement.

    Morrison said on Sunday the government has secured an additional 85 >million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, but they will only be delivered in >2022 and 2023.

    "To have those booster shots pre-ordered means we can go into 2022 with >confidence," he said.

    Australia's Victoria state reported 11 locally acquired COVID-19 cases
    on Sunday, down from 12 a day earlier, raising hopes the state will end
    a hard lockdown imposed 10 days ago.

    State Premier Daniel Andrews said it was too early to say whether >restrictions will be eased on Tuesday, but: "At this stage, though, >things are going well."

    All of the cases were linked to the current outbreak clusters and
    all of
    them were in isolation throughout their infectious period, the state's >health department said.

    six months in office
    Biden slams ‘pain in the neck’ reporter for off-topic question on
    breaking news
    Reprinted with permission from Mediaite.

    One of the most underrated aspects of human behavior is how much
    expectations dictate our perceptions of reality. Largely because none of >>> us has ever dealt with a pandemic before and, therefore, we have no
    experience on which to draw comparisons, this has been particularly true >>> when it comes to dealing with the coronavirus.

    Since the beginning of this nightmare, the news media have done a
    horrible of job of providing much-needed context and perspective to the
    COVID data that have driven so much of our lives for the last year and a >>> half. This has been especially the case with regard to the recent
    hysteria over the “Delta variant” causing a large spike in the daily
    number of positive tests, both here in America and in many other places
    around the world.

    As someone who has previously written that COVID is effectively no
    longer a “pandemic,” I admit surprise and concern at just how much and
    how quickly the case numbers have increased in the United States in the
    last few weeks. It’s now clear, contrary to the data trends of the
    previous four or months and even current inaccurate claims made by
    President Biden, that the vaccines do not fully prevent you from testing >>> positive for the virus, but rather mitigate the symptoms.

    The news media’s obsession with daily case numbers has always been, at
    best, misguided, and, at worst, malicious. When the history of the
    destruction of this once-great nation is finally fully written, I
    believe the news media and public-health “experts” transitioning from
    hospitalization/death numbers to daily positive tests as the primary
    COVID data point will be seen as one of the final nails in the coffin of >>> our formerly free society.

    This is not just because there is evidence that the most prominent test
    is flawed, with the CDC just recommending it be dumped because it can’t
    even differentiate COVID from influenza. (It should also be noted that
    weekend reporting in many states has become so lax that the data
    collection itself helps facilitate exaggerated mid-week “spikes.”)

    We seem to forget that when the positive test first became the news
    media’s metric of choice, there were no vaccines, and we had very little >>> communal immunity. In theory, everyone who tested positive was at least
    somewhat vulnerable to a very bad outcome, even though, in reality, 98
    percent of those in that group recovered.

    The third wave of COVID-19 has been less deadly than the first and second. >>> The third wave of COVID-19 has been less deadly than the first and second. >>> Mediaite
    Now, well over half the nation is at least partly vaccinated (with at
    least another 10 percent having some — possibly even better — level of
    immunity from having previously contracted the virus), so the focus on
    daily positive tests, without at least some critical context, has become >>> totally absurd. One, because even the current “case” numbers are not
    THAT bad, and two, because there is no indication as of yet that
    hospitalizations/deaths are going to get to “emergency” levels, which,
    it cannot be stated enough, is the ONLY standard when direct government
    intervention is remotely justified in a supposedly free country.

    We are now averaging over 45,000 new positive tests per day, which is
    over triple the number when it reached our low about a month ago. This
    sudden increase is understandably alarming, especially without any
    perspective, which most of the news media has very little incentive to
    provide. For instance, late in the “swine flu” of 2009-2010 America was
    averaging 57,000 cases a day (down from the year-long average of
    190,000) and the spread at that time was not considered to be at
    “pandemic” levels.

    Yes, positive COVID tests have increased, but they have done so in a
    very similar seasonal pattern, even on a state-by-state basis, to what
    happened in the summer of 2020. The numbers are still much lower than
    the height of that summer spike, and dramatically less than the worst of >>> the winter wave which once had us at 250,000 new cases a day, with no
    vaccines, and yet without our health-care system reaching levels of
    grave danger.

    Thanks apparently to the those vaccines, this rise in positive tests has >>> not yet caused a dangerous increase in hospitalizations, and absolutely
    no rise yet in the number of people currently dying with COVID (though
    expect that to begin to change, at least marginally, in the next week or >>> two). In fact, for more than a month now, based on the 7-day average,
    Americans have had a less than a one-in-a-million chance of dying with
    COVID on any given day, and currently here in California daily “COVID
    deaths” are just barely outpacing automobile deaths (which, it should be >>> pointed out, end the lives of people much younger and healthier on
    average than COVID does).

    In short, unless the perceived effectiveness of the vaccines is one of
    the greatest frauds of all time, we are currently in no danger of seeing >>> numbers that once again threaten to cause a catastrophe in our
    health-care system, which was the entire justification for the
    government usurping endless dictatorial powers due to this emergency.
    But here is where the purveyors of fear have masterfully won the
    expectations game, even when the facts indicate that they should have
    lost it.

    The notion that cases were not going to significantly rise, especially
    among younger people, during a summer when most of America is back to
    “normalcy” and eager to make up for lost time is mystifying. If all
    restrictions had been lifted and there had been categorically no
    negative change in the data, it would have been a devastating blow to
    the already highly questionable premise that lockdowns are worth the
    collateral damage which they cause (though the news media would have
    done their very best to ignore such a development). For instance, it
    will be interesting to see how the United Kingdom spins it if their
    numbers continue to improve now that the worst of their lockdown has
    ended, at least for now.

    At the heart of the current debate on how to respond to the rapid
    increase in positive tests is the notion that “Zero COVID” is an
    attainable, or even a worthwhile, goal.
    The “experts” have infamously and radically moved the goalposts since we >>> began with “15 Days to Slow the Spread,” but trying to pretend we can
    both live in a semi-free society and somehow eradicate the virus
    completely is foolish to the point of delusion.

    Ironically, though probably not coincidentally, the Western country
    which has come currently closest to “Zero COVID” is much-maligned
    Sweden, which is yet another data point indicating that natural immunity >>> may be more effective than just the vaccines themselves. In short, while >>> the “experts” would like to see us panic and go back to some form of new >>> lockdowns, a level-headed view indicates that position is actually the
    one which, at least for now, is really “anti-science.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    Nevada issues emergency order requiring masks — vaccinated or not — in a >>> dozen counties starting Friday
    Ed Komenda
    Jason Hidalgo
    Reno Gazette Journal








    Recycled Records employee Joe Wilson, right, helps a customer while
    wearing a mask in Reno on April 14.
    Nevada has issued an emergency order requiring people in 12 of 17
    counties — whether they're vaccinated or not — to wear masks in public
    indoor spaces.

    Starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday, the mandate becomes effective in counties >>> with substantial or high transmission of COVID-19, according to a news
    release shared Tuesday afternoon.

    Nevada counties that will be impacted: Carson, Churchill, Clark,
    Douglas, Elko, Esmeralda, Lincoln, Lyon, Mineral, Nye, Washoe and White
    Pine.

    More COVID-19 coverage:Surge in Delta variant cases raises concerns
    about summer events in Reno

    The city of Reno on Tuesday afternoon announced a mandate that all
    people regardless of vaccination status will be required to wear a mask
    or face covering in public indoor settings at all city of Reno
    facilities effective Wednesday.


    Nevada mandate follows CDC guidance
    The state's announcement of the new restrictions comes the same day the
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed course and urged
    even fully vaccinated Americans to wear masks indoors in areas of high
    coronavirus transmission.

    While masks aren't likely to crush community spread, experts say, they
    might ratchet up pressure on the unvaccinated and encourage businesses
    and schools to implement mask mandates.

    With caregivers seen in a reflection, a patient lies intubated in his
    bed in the Intensive Care Unit devoted to those inflicted with COVID-19
    at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno December 2020. The patient's
    name was not released.
    The CDC is also now recommending universal indoor masking for all
    teachers, staff, students and visitors inside schools from kindergarten
    to 12th grade, regardless of vaccination status. That aligns closely
    with guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which
    recommended this month that anyone older than 2 be required to wear a
    mask in school.

    Cases surge across Silver State
    Nevada has resurfaced as a COVID-19 hotspot in recent weeks due to the
    spread of the Delta variant.


    After falling to just 132 daily new cases on June 9, Nevada saw a steep
    increase in the following weeks as the variant started to take hold in
    the state. By July 24, new confirmed COVID cases shot up to 870 per day, >>> a level not seen since early February.

    On Tuesday, Nevada logged 792 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total
    number of cases recorded during the pandemic to 352,567. In all, 5,854
    people statewide have died from COVID-19.

    In Washoe County, the seven-day average for new cases rose to 67 as of
    July 26. The number represents a steep increase from just a couple of
    months ago, when the county reported a seven-day average of 13 on May 31. >>>
    The COVID-19 positivity rate, which measures the share of COVID tests
    that return with a positive result, has also seen a steady increase this >>> summer ever since dipping all the way down to just 2.8% on June 7. The
    rate hit 5% — the World Health Organization’s upper limit for reopening
    — on July 10.

    Less than two weeks later, the positivity rate in Washoe broke the 8%
    mark, which is one of the thresholds set by the governor when assessing
    whether a county is at elevated risk for COVID-19.

    The rate was at 9.1% as of July 25.

    As of Tuesday afternoon, 1,143 people were hospitalized statewide — 36
    of them on ventilators, according to state data.

    Clark County — home of the Las Vegas Strip — accounts for nearly 80% of
    COVID-19 cases in the state, as well as the highest incidence rate. In
    Washoe County, health officials have logged 47,296 cases and 690 deaths. >>>
    The surge led Clark County commissioners last week to mandate all
    employees working indoors in a public space to wear masks.

    A week earlier, the Southern Nevada Health District recommended mask
    wearing for vaccinated and unvaccinated people at crowded indoor public
    places. The district changed its mask policy following rising case rates >>> and hospitalizations for COVID-19.

    Vaccination rates low
    CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said new data shows the Delta
    variant, which accounts for more than 80% of the new infections in the
    U.S., behaves "uniquely differently'' from its predecessors and could
    make vaccinated people infectious.

    "Information on the Delta variant from several states and other
    countries indicates that in rare occasions some vaccinated people
    infected with the Delta variant after vaccination may be contagious and
    spread the virus to others,'' Walensky said. "This new science is
    worrisome and unfortunately warrants an update to our recommendation.''

    In Nevada, vaccination rates remain low, state data shows.

    Carson City has the highest vaccination rate in the state — about 50
    percent. In Washoe, that number is 48 percent.


    Clark County, where the majority of new cases have been recorded, has a
    vaccination rate of 39 percent.

    A big part of the challenge in boosting vaccination rates is vaccine
    hesitancy. While the county saw a high number of vaccinations earlier
    this year, rates have since slowed down. Reasons for vaccine hesitancy
    range from health concerns to personal and political beliefs.

    Earlier this month, Washoe District Health Officer Kevin Dick pleaded
    for residents to get the vaccine as the Delta variant continued to make
    inroads within the state. At the time, Dick said higher vaccination
    rates were crucial in ensuring that things don’t go backward after the
    progress seen in prior months.

    "The vaccine is free and readily available to anyone 12 and older,
    regardless of immigration status," Dick said at the time. "That’s our
    path forward regarding COVID-19. We don’t want … to be in a situation
    where we mandate everyone to wear masks."

    Health officials also expressed concern back in late June about the
    variant quickly establishing a foothold after a COVID cluster was
    confirmed at a Washoe kindergarten.

    "The super contagious nature of the Delta variant is very concerning,"
    said Nancy Diao, division director of epidemiology and public
    preparedness for the Washoe County Health District.

    "We already saw in the U.K. that it took over in the course of a month."

    WHAT ARE THE SIDE-EFFECTS OF THE ASTRAZENECA COVID VACCINE?
    The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has
    listed the below as side-effects of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

    Very Common (may affect more than one in 10 people)

    Tenderness, pain, warmth, itching or bruising where injection is given;
    Generally feeling unwell;
    Feeling tired (fatigue);
    Chills or feeling feverish;
    Headache;
    Feeling sick (nausea);
    Joint pain or muscle ache.
    Common (may affect up to one in 10 people)

    Swelling, redness or lump at the injection site;
    Fever;
    Being sick (vomiting) or diarrhoea;
    Flu-like symptoms, such as high temperature, sore throat, runny nose,
    cough and chills.
    Uncommon (may affect up to one in 100 people)

    Rash, excessive sweating or itchy skin.
    Feeling dizzy;
    Decreased appetite;
    Abdominal pain;
    Enlarged lymph nodes;
    Source: MHRA


    It is not clear why Ms Beuckmann, who works in retail, was invited for a >>> vaccine as Scotland's roll-out is still mopping up over-50s.

    But jabs are available to those who are considered at risk from the
    virus, or live with someone classed as vulnerable.

    More than 33million Britons — or three in five adults — have already
    received at least one dose of a vaccine.

    At least 20million have had AstraZeneca's jab — which drug regulators
    say causes a rash in 1 per cent of cases. Rashes tend to go away on
    their own within a week.

    Ms Beuckmann told the Daily Record that her rash started just around her >>> ankles — prompting her to ring her GP, who asked to see her.

    As the day progressed, her rash became worse and she asked her husband
    to take her to A&E. Doctors flagged that she had a high heart rate and
    carried out further tests.

    In an attempt to work out what triggered the rash, medics also carried
    out tests for HIV, herpes and other skin conditions — but the results
    all came back negative.

    Doctors eventually decided the vaccine caused her rare reaction after
    carrying out two biopsies, the Scottish newspaper reported.

    Ms Beuckmann was then given steroids to calm her immune system down and
    stop the reaction. She said the drugs — which weren't named — are
    'helping'.

    Speaking about her concern when she was admitted, she said: 'At one
    point I was sitting there thinking "Am I going to have my legs
    amputated?" because I didn't know what was going on and obviously this
    is new to the hospital staff as well.

    'For the first eight or nine days I was on quite a bit of morphine but I >>> started to gradually come off the stronger stuff.

    'They are starting to heal and they're looking a lot better than they
    were but as the blisters started to get worse, they all sort of merged
    together.

    'I'm currently using a wheelchair as well just because I can't walk with >>> my legs getting bandaged up every day and the blisters on the soles of
    my feet.'

    Ms Beuckmann also praised the doctors and nurses at the hospital for
    their efforts, and said despite her condition she thinks everyone should >>> get the jab.

    'I'm still not an anti-vaxxer or anything, even now, but I'm not allowed >>> to get the second dose to be on the safe side,' she said.

    'I just want people to be aware that there are some reactions that can
    occur and not to ignore any rashes.

    'It's not to scare people but just in case this does happen to anybody
    else, it means they're going to get the treatment straight away.'

    Dr Emma Wedgeworth, a consultant dermatologist and spokeswoman at the
    British Skin Foundation, said Ms Beuckmann had likely suffered a
    reaction to the jab.

    'Vaccines are designed to activate the immune system,' she told MailOnline. >>>
    'Occasionally people will have quite dramatic activation of their immune >>> systems which, as happened in this case, can manifest in their skin.

    'This poor lady had a very severe reaction, which thankfully is
    extremely rare.'

    She added: 'While vaccines can cause, usually mild reactions, we know
    that Covid-19 can fairly commonly cause significant changes in the skin
    and throughout the body and can be life threatening.

    'I would therefore urge people to continue to have the Covid vaccine and >>> to be vigilant about any side effects.'

    Britain's medical regulator - the Medicines and Healthcare products
    Regulatory Agency (MHRA) - has 'robust' monitoring systems in place to
    ensure all vaccines being distributed are safe and effective.

    It asks for any suspected reactions to be reported to its yellow card
    scheme.

    This data is monitored by top medics, who then take a closer look if
    they start to spot a potentially concerning side-effect.

    But experts say it is very rare for concerning reactions after
    vaccination because the jabs have already been through rigorous checks.

    The MHRA recommended under-30s receive an alternative to AstraZeneca's
    vaccine at the start of this month, after the jab was linked to very
    rare blood clots.

    Medical regulators have said the benefits of the jab clearly outweigh
    the risk for all but the youngest patients — who face a tiny risk of dying. >>>
    The MHRA has been contacted for comment.

    Jummai Nache (pictured) contracted COVID-19 in the days after she
    received the second shot of a vaccine. Complications from the virus led
    to her needing both legs amputated

    A Minnesota woman who contracted COVID-19 after getting vaccinated had
    to have both of her legs amputated, and will soon have her hands
    amputated as well.

    Jummai Nache, a medical assistant from Minneapolis, received the second
    dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on February 1.

    A few days later on February 6, her husband, Philip, took her to urgent
    care after she felt chest pains.

    A day later, she tested positive for COVID-19, and her condition quickly >>> deteriorated, leading to hospitalization and eventual amputation.

    Philip is now searching for answers to the true cause of his wife's
    condition.

    'Jummai and I were shocked when we received the result that she was
    Covid-19 positive because she had not manifested any symptom before
    taking the shot,' Philip wrote in a letter attached to a GoFundMe for
    the couple.

    'But we later accepted that perhaps, the virus and the vaccine together
    contributed to the adverse reaction on her body based on the report of
    the Infectious Disease physician that Jummai was asymptomatic.'

    In the letter, Philip goes into detail about the conditions his wife
    suffered, and the months of work with medical experts he undertook to
    figure out what exactly happened.

    He said that his wife suffered from an arterial blood clot, respiratory
    disease, cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease), anemia, ischemia and
    multiple inflammatory syndrome (MIS) - a condition where multiple organs >>> in the body become inflamed.


    She was placed on a ventilator on February 14.

    Jummai's case was referred to the Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention (CDC) to investigate.

    After a virtual call that included 70 to 80 health experts from around
    the country, the CDC determined that COVID-19 and MIS combined were the
    cause of her complications, according to the GoFundMe page.

    The agency could not determine whether the vaccine played a role in her
    condition, however.

    Philip is not satisfied with the CDC's findings and still has questions. >>>
    He wonders why he himself did not contract COVID from his wife despite
    their close contact.

    Philip says he also questions if the vaccine played a role in her
    condition, and if not, what exactly did the vaccine do within her body.

    'My experience on this journey has been so difficult but I can't imagine >>> the excruciating pain mentally, physically and emotionally that my wife
    is going through,' he wrote.

    'I can only equate her experience and challenge with job's experience
    and trial in the sense that the challenges have come in degrees, one
    after another.'

    Jummai and Philip are Nigerian immigrants who came to America as church
    planters as part of the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention (MWBC) in >>> the Twin Cities.

    The MWBC set up a GoFundMe for the couple, hoping to raise $500,000 to
    help pay for their medical expenses, expenses for prosthetic limbs and
    other adjustments the couple will have to make in their new life.

    More than $100,000 has been raised for the couple as of Monday morning.

    Philip reports that Jummai's heart is fully healed.

    'We are grateful to God for His grace upon Jummai, the children and
    myself as we go through this unprecedented experience and the painful
    challenges! GOD KNOWS!' Philip wrote.

    Covid in Scotland: Most restrictions to end from 9 August
    Published33 minutes agocommentsComments

    IMAGE SOURCEGETTY IMAGES
    Almost all of Scotland's remaining Covid-19 restrictions are to end from >>> 9 August, Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed.

    Social distancing will be dropped in most settings, meaning more
    capacity in pubs and restaurants and larger crowds at sporting events
    and concerts.

    And close contacts of those who test positive for Covid will no longer
    have to self-isolate - as long as they are fully vaccinated and test
    negative.

    However, the wearing of face coverings in some public spaces will continue. >>>
    This will include secondary schools, where staff will need to maintain
    1m physical distancing for the first six weeks of term and twice-weekly
    testing will be required.

    Live: Latest from Nicola Sturgeon's Covid-19 statement
    Self-isolation of whole classes 'no longer routine'

    The first minister also said a "gradual approach" will be taken to
    returning workers to offices, warning that the virus still poses "real
    challenges".


    While the changes would restore a "substantial degree of normality", she >>> said they do not "signal the end of the pandemic or a return to life
    exactly as we knew it".

    She said: "Declaring freedom from or victory over this virus is in my
    view premature."

    The number of new Covid-19 cases has fallen markedly from the peak of
    the "third wave", with Ms Sturgeon saying the infection rate had fallen
    by two-thirds since early July.

    with the virus.

    The first minister said uptake of the Covid-19 vaccine had been
    "exceptional", and that this - along with the fall in cases - made it
    possible to lift most of the legal restrictions still in force.

    As of Monday, 9 August, the current limits on the number of people who
    can meet up will be dropped, as will social distancing rules in most
    settings.

    This means nightclubs will be allowed to reopen, and larger crowds will
    be allowed to gather for indoor and outdoor events - although organisers >>> of large events will still need to apply to local councils for permission. >>>
    The rules around self-isolation will also change, meaning that
    fully-vaccinated adults who are identified as a close contact of a
    positive case will no longer have to isolate if they return a negative
    PCR test.

    image captionThe use of face coverings will continue in secondary
    schools for the first part of the new term
    The government is still considering whether a certificate proving people >>> have been vaccinated will be needed to enter "higher-risk" events.

    Ms Sturgeon confirmed that a "Covid status certification" app was under
    development, but said she was "considering very carefully" whether such
    a scheme would be appropriate.

    She also said she would not hesitate to take the "tough decision" to
    re-impose some local restrictions if there was a serious outbreak of the >>> virus, saying the government "will seek to take whatever action is
    necessary to keep the country safe".

    While most restrictions will be lifted, a number of "mitigations" will
    remain in place, with Ms Sturgeon saying the harm of the virus "cannot
    be underestimated".

    The use of face coverings in enclosed spaces like shops, hospitality
    venues and public transport will remain "for some time" to come, and
    venues will still be expected to collect customer details for contact
    tracing.

    The first minister said it was "vital" that the return to working in
    offices was a gradual one, saying employers should consider a "hybrid"
    model of home and in-office work.

    'Mixed bag'
    The Scottish Parliament was recalled from its summer recess for the
    announcement, giving opposition leaders the chance to question the first >>> minister on the plans.

    Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross said the statement was a
    "mixed bag", saying that "ongoing restrictions will hold Scotland's
    recovery back".

    He said: "We have moved beyond level zero - but still curbs remain in
    place. Yet again the goalposts have been moved. We are at level minus
    one or minus two, and still the government is clinging on to parts of
    people's lives."

    Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar said there was "definitely light at
    the end of the tunnel", but said "we are at a crucial point for
    Scotland's recovery".

    He called for a "new approach" in the fight against the pandemic,
    calling for increased support for the test and trace system and pop-up
    vaccination clinics at sporting events and universities.

    Disney’s new annual pass system does not bring the real magic:
    vaccination requirements
    The top of the Guardians of the Galaxy ride behind the Quinjet aircraft
    The Disneyland Resort recently opened the Avengers Campus in Disney
    California Adventure, which will now be easier for locals to access with >>> the return of an annual passport-style program.(Allen J. Schaben / Los
    Angeles Times)
    BY TODD MARTENS | GAME CRITIC
    AUG. 3, 2021 6:47 PM PT
    On Tuesday, seven months after the COVID-19 pandemic killed Disneyland’s >>> annual passport program, hundreds of thousands of the theme park’s
    die-hard fans likely breathed a sigh of relief — the APs are back.
    They’re called Magic Keys now, but beyond continuation of the parks’
    reservation-based system, they look similar to the old program. Former
    passholders’ worst fears — that the new passes would be priced
    significantly higher or do away with a monthly payment plan — were not
    made manifest.
    Transitioning passports to a reservation-based system is a step in the
    right direction, allowing the park’s biggest fans to maintain something
    akin to the level of access they had in the past while limiting the idea >>> of Disneyland as a last-minute hang. But in this rapidly changing
    pandemic-scarred world, there’s still one more leap we’d like to see
    Disneyland — and all of Southern California’s theme parks — take.
    In 2021, the only passport with any real currency is the one that
    documents your COVID-19 vaccination.
    Restaurants, bars, Broadway and even New York City are putting pressure
    on people to get vaccinated by requiring proof of shots or a negative
    COVID-19 test. Yet just days after Disney announced it would require
    much of its workforce to be vaccinated, none of the Magic Keys, or
    indeed any ticket to the resort, requires proof of vaccination.
    A heartbreaking opportunity lost.
    Whether you can stomach a day at a theme park or not, there’s no denying >>> Disneyland’s cultural resonance. When the park, along with much of the
    state, shuttered in March 2020, it was an exclamation point for many on
    the gravity of this pandemic. A place of optimism — a park built on the
    belief in humanity’s ability to aspire to be better — had survived
    multiple wars, recessions and national crises.
    But it was no match for a virus.
    And when, on April 30, Disneyland celebrated its second proper grand
    opening since July 1955, it stood as a sign that we were emerging at
    long last from more than a year of trauma. We may not be healed, but we
    could once again visit a place with cross-generation memories embedded
    into its every square inch and celebrate the myths, stories and fairy
    tales that help us define our lives.
    ANAHEIM CA APRIL 30, 2021 - Park visitors take a selfie in front of the
    Walt Disney statue inside Disneyland as the theme park reopens for the
    first time in more than a year on Friday, April 30, 2021.(Robert
    Gauthier / Los Angeles Times)
    BUSINESS
    Disneyland has a new annual pass program. Here’s everything you need to know
    Aug. 3, 2021
    Given the devotion millions feel to the Disney resorts in California and >>> around the world, it would have been nice to see the Magic Keys offer
    more than just discounts and free parking for its top $1,399 “Dream”
    key. A bolder nod to the modern war effort shouldn’t be a thing of
    fantasy. Schools can close, office buildings can empty but Disneyland
    remains a reset for many to life’s ills, a mini-respite from our
    pandemic highs and lows.
    Last week, in light of rising cases, Disneyland reinstated a mask policy >>> for indoor venues. But even some outdoor lines, such as those in
    Fantasyland, cram guests in so tightly that everyone is essentially
    sharing the same air, especially on windless SoCal days.
    As Disneyland devotees know, great care is taken to maintain “the berm,” >>> which prevents Anaheim’s skyline from penetrating our sightlines from
    the Magic Kingdom, but as long as the park isn’t fully pledging
    allegiance to science, it’s doing far less to prevent invasion by the
    highly infectious Delta variant.
    As a regular parkgoer, I haven’t felt uncomfortable (although I do wear
    a KN95 mask at all times and avoid the tight lines of the re-imagined
    Snow White ride), but before the masking policy was reinstated, I did
    worry about children under 12, who are not yet eligible for vaccination. >>> For them, for myself, for the families they return home to and for
    America’s continued attempt to escape the grip of this pandemic.
    So why not require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for
    all vaccine-eligible guests? Disney has already proved it’s logistically >>> possible.
    The French government is requiring a “health pass” to show proof of
    vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to enter most venues, including
    Disneyland Paris, where there is an on-site testing center run by a
    third party. Why can’t that happen here at the flagship resort? After
    all, what are the recent changes to the classic Jungle Cruise ride to
    rid it of racist caricatures if not an attempt to grow with the times,
    to be a place where everyone feels welcome and comfortable?
    Disneyland, Universal Studios and Knott’s Berry Farm shouldn’t be more
    virus-risky than local bars and restaurants such as Osteria La Buca,
    Akbar, the Short Stop, Gigi’s and Tramp Stamp Granny’s. Vaccine
    requirements aren’t just common sense for the common good of society;
    they’re also about the survival of our economy and our culture. So what
    is arguably Southern California’s most famous international destination
    should lead by example.
    If this truly is — as that lovely Disney earworm tells us — a world of
    hopes and a world of fears, let’s make sure the emphasis stays on the hope. >>

    Disney & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's announcement that he intends, by >mayoral ukase, to make it illegal for someone without a city-approved >proof of vaccination to work at or be customers of the city's gyms, >entertainment venues, and indoor restaurants is a grotesquely >unconstitutional tyranny, annihilating human liberty of movement, >commerce, and association with a dangerously tenuous justification.

    Even with de Blasio's dataless references to saving lives as the >justification for this move, and the admission that it won't (yet) be >extended to public transit, it is clearly a blatant attempt to harass
    and punish Americans who have not yet gone along with months of state
    and media pressure to get vaccinated, for whatever reason. That we know >the vaccinated also can transmit the virus makes the purely punitive >nature of his power grab all the more clear.


    New York currently has 72 percent of its adult population vaccinated
    with at least one dose and, looking at the current rate of vaccination >over the past month, is adding around 130,000 to that vaccinated number >weekly?nother 2 percent of the city's adult population per week. This >means that by the time de Blasio begins enforcing this regulation about >five weeks from now, the city would likely even absent this threat
    be at
    around 82 percent adults vaccinated.

    Infectious diseases have always existed and for good reason have never, >at COVID-19's demonstrated level of serious harm, been seen as a >legitimate excuse to treat masses of other human beings as pure harms >that must be barred from large parts of the society and market.

    Right now, a bit over 3 percent of New Yorkers who get tested are
    testing positive for COVID. (Given what makes people decide to get >tested, this number likely represents the percentage of those who >actually feel ill or otherwise have testing demands made on them, not >necessarily proof that even that percentage of New Yorkers overall are >positive right now.) Over the past week, dozens of?ut never more than >50?OVID-positive New Yorkers have been admitted daily to hospitals, out >of roughly 700 daily new confirmed cases.

    The daily average death numbers inspiring de Blasio's tyranny in New
    York have been four a day over the past week. For what it's worth, the >percentage of black adult New Yorkers who will be barred from all these >businesses at the current vaccination rates under de Blasio's unique >approach to public accommodation law is 58 percent; of white adults, 43 >percent.

    De Blasio did not even give the public the respect of explaining and >defending the data and risk calculations behind his vague handwaving >about "lives saved" and science. He made no attempt to explain what we >know (or don't know) about the risk an unvaccinated person presents of >causing serious harm to a vaccinated person, or the risk that anyone
    will encounter someone transmitting COVID, nor did he detail the above >current numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths associated with >COVID, such that it justifies this punitive assault on the liberty of
    the unvaccinated.

    It has never been possible to run a risk-free human society, and our >current political class's attempts to pretend to do so (while failing) >get darker and more insane by the week. Public policy has made flailing >attempts to eradicate a virus in the past year. It cannot do so, and it >definitely hurts to try.

    Chloe Valdary: How Kendrick Lamar and The Lion King Can Help Close the >Racial Divide
    The vaccine exists. People can mask as they will. The statistics about >those who are most likely to suffer serious harm are out there.
    Whatever
    tenuous excuses any public official might have for treating the >unvaccinated as a unique menace who must be driven from society get
    more
    absurd by the day. The percentage of infected in New York is small, as >are the numbers hospitalized or dying. Harmful diseases are a fact of >human existence that cannot reasonably, certainly not at COVID's
    current
    level of harm, be used to justify creating a second-class citizenry and >normalizing the idea of having to take actions one does not want to
    take
    (as invasive as injected medical treatment without a long history or
    our
    culture's standard safety approval) and prove them via documents to
    exist equally in society.

    Western culture has always had a justifiably bad attitude about the
    mark
    without which one can neither buy nor sell, and people with the
    power to
    stop you from going places demanding your papers. De Blasio cannot,
    alas, be recalled, so New Yorkers' best option is a combination of >lawsuits against this power grab, mass civil disobedience of the laws, >and mass protests to show de Blasio?nd the government officials across >the country he wants to inspire to follow along?hat he has crossed a
    line Americans won't tolerate.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in

    Are ICUs in the U.S. actually full as headlines claim?
    Discussion
    It's really interesting (and disheartening) to see the exact same repeat >>>of last year happening right now, where it's clear that those with the >>>loudest voices aren't interested in actually educating or informing the >>>public about accurate data or scientific findings, but instead seem >>>intent on creating as much confusion as possible by spreading "half >>>truths" and sensationalized opinions from "experts."

    One such topic of confusion and disinformation at the moment is the
    state of hospital and ICU capacities across the country, a topic which
    is often used to justify lockdown measures or other restrictions. Every >>>day, major media headlines claim that ICUs are full, just like last
    year, but upon further examination it appears many of these claims are >>>grossly exaggerated. But is there an easy way for regular people to see >>>the ACTUAL data for themselves, vs. just taking sensational media's word >>>for it?

    To clarify, it certainly appears to be true that in many areas around
    the country, there are increased admissions to hospitals and ICUs. But >>>the question is how does this compare to other times during the
    pandemic, and how "full" are they? Do headlines match reality?

    I came across this website that seems like it could be a good resource:

    https://data.commercialappeal.com/covid-19-hospital-capacity/

    You can look at every state and county in the U.S. and view current and >>>past hospital/ICU capacities for every hospital, plus COVID admissions. >>>It's apparently part of the USA Today network, and the data gathered is >>>purported to be straight from the U.S. Department of Health & Human >>>Services. If anyone knows any more about the validity of this site, >>>please share, but it looks to be legitimate (and you may be able to >>>verify numbers by looking at your state/county health department
    websites if they make the data accessible).

    I'm sharing this because it's good for people to be informed, and share >>>the REAL information with others, so we aren't beholden to believing >>>whatever claims are made in the headlines. For example, I've heard many >>>people claim that in my local area, ICUs were "overrun" at the peak
    times of the pandemic, but a quick glance at this site shows that there >>>was never a case where all hospitals or ICUs were even close to full in >>>my area.

    Here are some examples of sensational headlines that are being shared
    and accepted as gospel across Reddit and elsewhere:

    COVID-19: Oklahoma runs out of ICU hospital beds >>>https://www.birminghamstar.com/news/270565700/covid-19-oklahoma-runs-out-of-icu-hospital-beds

    This headline is a blatant lie which is conflicted by the text of its >>>actual article, which includes quotes that show that ICU numbers may be >>>increasing, but have not "run out." Here's one quote: "According to a >>>local ER doctor in Oklahoma, several ICUs across the metro were "maxed >>>out or close to capacity" as COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to soar, >>>reported Fox News."

    The article also mentions there's been a large reported increase in RSV >>>cases (which the headline conveniently leaves out)

    Looking at the Commercial Appeal hospital tracking website above, it >>>looks like the majority of Oklahoma hospitals have space available, with >>>a number of them at below 70% ICU capacity.

    Central Florida hospitals close to ICU capacity as COVID-19 cases increase >>>https://www.clickorlando.com/news/local/2021/07/20/central-florida-hospitals-close-to-icu-capacity-as-covid-19-cases-increase/

    This one is interesting because one of the hospitals has an official >>>statement shared within the article that seems to conflict with the >>>fear-generating headline. AdventHealth, one of the Orlando area
    hospitals listed as being at 93% ICU capacity, released this statement:

    “It is typical for hospitals to have capacity figures in the 90th >>>percentile even in pre-COVID times, so these numbers do not cause for >>>concern or alarm. While we have seen an increase in hospitalizations in >>>Central Florida over the last few weeks, we still have significantly >>>fewer COVID patients compared to what we saw during the peak. Even
    during the peak, at no point did we reach capacity."

    As a disclaimer, I'm not a Covid-denier, and I am vaccinated. I believe >>>Covid has been a very serious problem, but that misinformation and >>>fearmongering are helping no one. People should be informed, the CDC and >>>other "health leaders" should be transparent and seek to educate the >>>population on data and actual risks posed to them and their communities, >>>rather than trying to manipulate people to behave a certain way with
    half truths or withholding data.

    The "actual risk" of COVID-19 infection faced by any given individual
    will depend on the extent (duration/distance from source) of their
    actual physical exposure to the virus at any given moment instead of >>statistics from the CDC and/or other "health leaders."

    If anyone else has great data sources to share, please do!

    "Mandate vaccination for everyone, including all children" vs "The
    vaccines are dangerous, deadly experiments" -- using England's age
    demographics + Covid-19 mortality data to appeal for nuance +
    proportionality in the vaccine debate
    OCAnalysis
    I write this post to discuss current national vaccination strategies, in >>> hope of finding a more balanced approach, which better reflects the
    nuance of mortality risk from real world data.

    I submit that The United Kingdom (and other countries) has become far
    too focused on achieving arbitrary vaccination targets amongst the
    young, who can be shown to be at very low innate risk of severe illness
    and death from Covid-19. Therefore, the relative benefits of pushing for >>> vaccinations amongst younger and younger people (using progressively
    more draconian and coercive methods), will only produce diminishing
    returns. I hope that any future policy proposals are better calibrated
    towards acknowledging the extreme risk disparity between the young and
    the old. The risk disparity is so large that it also has profound
    ethical implications for richer countries' duties to poorer countries,
    with respect to vaccine donation.

    It is with a sense of extreme frustration that I observe online
    discussion regarding Covid-19 vaccines - a wide gulf of opinion has
    opened between two opposing, entrenched and aggressively vocal camps.
    Either the vaccine is a medical miracle, our ticket out of the pandemic
    and should be mandated to every man, woman and child on the planet. Or,
    it is a dangerous experiment that is being forced on people against
    their will, that shows little benefit of efficacy and has dangerous,
    potentially deadly side-effects.

    Actually, there are several COVID vaccines to choose from for the
    unvaccinated each with different side-effect profiles.

    I propose that, by analysing available data, a different picture
    emerges. One which suggests a more balanced understanding of where mass
    vaccination is, and crucially isn't, appropriate; that an age-targeted
    vaccination approach would be most effective at preventing Covid-19
    fatalities. This suggestion is certainly nothing new - if we re-wind to
    the end of 2020, the UK Government was keen to announce the national
    vaccine rollout, targeted specifically to the oldest and most vulnerable >>> as priority. In a predictable example of "mission creep", this sensible
    strategy morphed into an insistence that all individuals must be
    vaccinated, irrespective of age, co-morbities and previous infection.

    Instead of "mission creep," the UK being overwhelmed with the Alpha
    variant during the end of 2020 showed that unchecked spread of
    infection among the unvaccinated would increase the likelihood of new
    variants b/c of more mutations happening when there are more
    infections.

    By combining age-stratified mortality data, vaccination data and UK
    demographic data, it becomes easier to understand why age is the most
    important factor in the cost benefit calculation for vaccines:

    r/LockdownSkepticism - "Mandate vaccination for everyone, including all
    children" vs "The vaccines are dangerous, deadly experiments" -- using
    England's age demographics + Covid-19 mortality data to appeal for
    nuance + proportionality in the vaccine debate
    Figure 1: Age Demographic data + age based Covid-19 data

    Figure 1: Source 1, Source 2 + Source 3

    In Figure 1, we can observe that ages 60 and over account for 92% of all >>> Covid-19 mortality, an overwhelming majority, from just 24.1% of the
    total population. By contrast, ages 0-40 account for just 0.8% of total
    mortality, despite representing 49.8% of the total population.
    Therefore, the skewing of risk towards older age groups is so
    overwhelming that we should also expect relative benefits of
    vaccinations to be equally asymmetrical.

    This can be demonstrated through a thought experiment. Imagine that, in
    March 2020, we had the ability to click our fingers and 100% double
    vaccinate everyone in the UK. From recent Israeli data, we know that
    vaccines do not bestow sterilising immunity; double vaccinated people
    are still capable of showing symptoms, spreading the virus to others,
    being hospitalized and dying, but at reduced rates. Let us assume that
    the virus spreads in a similar epidemic wave through the whole
    population (although in reality this would be a flattened curve due to a >>> vaccine-slowed rate of spread; yet the total number of exposed
    individuals would be the same). Looking specifically at reduction of
    mortality, if we assume a vaccine efficacy of 90%, we can compare the
    following two examples:

    Ages 80+*: Population demo size: 2,855,599, Number of recorded deaths
    overall: 47,052 (approx 54% of total recorded deaths) So, if we assume
    the vaccine reduces death by 90%, and we could have achieved 100%
    vaccination on day 1 of the pandemic, 0.90 * 47052 = 42,347 deaths could >>> have been prevented.*

    This translates to 1 life saved for every 67.4 doses given, amongst this >>> age group.

    Ages 0-19: Population demo size: 13,330,355, Number of recorded deaths
    overall: 45 (approx 0.1% of total recorded deaths) So, if we assume the
    vaccine reduces death by 90%, and we could have achieved 100%
    vaccination on day 1 of the pandemic, 0.90 * 45 = 41 deaths could have
    been prevented.

    This translates to 1 life saved for every 329,144 doses given, amongst
    this age group.

    The above example shows the staggering disparity in the relative benefit >>> of vaccinating the very old versus the very young. In this particular
    case, vaccinating the old is nearly 5,000 times more effective at
    reducing mortality per vaccine administered.

    The same argument applies if you use a range of assumed values for
    vaccine efficacy: (highlighting 70 to 90% in green because it is likely
    to fall into this range)



    r/LockdownSkepticism - "Mandate vaccination for everyone, including all
    children" vs "The vaccines are dangerous, deadly experiments" -- using
    England's age demographics + Covid-19 mortality data to appeal for
    nuance + proportionality in the vaccine debate
    Figure 2: Range of assumed values (0 to 100%) of Vaccine Efficacy
    (Reduction of Mortality) + Number of Vaccine Doses required to prevent 1 >>> death

    In Figure 2, we observe that, irrespective of reduction in mortality
    provided by the vaccine, there will always be a wide disparity in the
    number of doses required to prevent 1 death.

    This metric is useful because, with simple multiplication of "number of
    doses required to prevent 1 death" by the cost of a common vaccine, you
    can derive "cost of vaccination to prevent 1 death". In the following, I >>> use a cost of $23.15 USD for Pfizer (source) x 2 for the required double >>> dose:



    r/LockdownSkepticism - "Mandate vaccination for everyone, including all
    children" vs "The vaccines are dangerous, deadly experiments" -- using
    England's age demographics + Covid-19 mortality data to appeal for
    nuance + proportionality in the vaccine debate
    Figure 3: Cost of vaccination to prevent 1 death, for a range of assumed >>> values (0 to 100%) of Vaccine Efficacy (Reduction of Mortality)

    Figure 3 demonstrates the diminishing returns which vaccination of
    increasingly younger groups incurs. For the 20 - 39 age group, at 90%
    vaccine efficacy, we should expect an average cost of $1,214,883 USD to
    save one life. Compared to the extremely modest cost of $3,122 to save
    an 80+ individual.

    How should the age-related risk disparity affect vaccine policy?
    Having recognised that such diminishing returns exist, I offer my own
    opinions on what a proportionate mass vaccination strategy would look
    like below:

    80+ In this age group, everyone should be fully vaccinated. For every 60 >>> to 80 jabs administered, another life is saved. Education campaigns and
    every reasonable form of social pressure should be applied to the
    unvaccinated (although there aren't very many of them in the UK, less
    than 5% left non double vaxxed). The financial cost per life saved is
    modest and well within medical norms.

    60-79 As above, but 300 - 450 jabs administered per life saved.

    40-59 More marginal but definitely worth mass vaccinating, England has
    more than 80% in this category already double-vaxxed, but focussing on
    the remaining 20% would be beneficial.

    20-39 Once you get into 20-39, 1.2 million to 1.6 million dollars per
    life saved is a staggeringly high cost; Higher than your average
    individual would contribute in an entire lifetime to tax revenue. But if >>> people choose it for themselves, and the medical cost benefit ratio is
    low (this will vary depending on individual circumstances) then they
    should have access to voluntary vaccinations. Pushing for arbritrary
    targets in this demographic should not be done (currently around 35% are >>> double vaccinated in the UK).

    There is no justification for policies which coerce or bribe people in
    younger age categories to take up this vaccine, if they don't choose it
    for themselves. Allowing them to acquire natural immunity via exposure
    will achieve similar results with respect to mortality, because deaths
    are so rare in this demographic anyway (current total mortality rate of
    0.0042%)

    0-19 - No mass vaccinations should be considered in this group. At
    estimated costs of 13 to 20 million dollars per life saved and a total
    mortality rate of just 45 out of 13,000,000, this group is already
    innately close to zero risk of mortality prior to vaccination.

    Donation of vaccines to poorer countries
    As the above numbers show, there is an estimated 5,000 times greater
    benefit for each vaccine administered to a person aged 80+ compared to
    ages 0-19. This makes the ethical argument opposing vaccinating
    teenagers in Western countries (versus donating those same vaccines to
    poorer nations for their old people), overwhelming - in a vaccine supply >>> limited world, how can we accept giving vital vaccines to individuals
    who will experience nearly zero benefit?

    If we do not change course on these policies, I fear people of the
    future will view our decision making as profoundly selfish and immoral.

    Conclusion
    I wish to make it clear that I am not opposed to vaccination. I think
    the benefits of vaccines for the vulnerable are undeniable, clearly
    outweigh the risks and I would strongly recommend anyone who falls into
    older age groups or has co-morbidities to get vaccinated as soon as
    possible. However, the benefits of vaccination should not be
    exaggerated. If Covid-19 affected all age demographics equally, there
    would be no debate here, but we know this is not the case.

    Younger people are now more likely to be hospitalized and to die from
    COVID-19 when infected with the more contagious/pathogenic variants.

    How much more likely?

    Pediatric ICU's now have more COVID patients than during prior

    A key part of good public health leadership is being clear and honest
    about the data that is available, to ensure that the trust of the public >>> is maintained. It is not unreasonable to expect public health policies

    1. Well, I’ve been spoiling for a fight, shopping around Northern
    Virginia and fining myself one of the few unmasked. So far, nobody’s
    said a word, but anyone who does is in for it. I’ve been vaccinated
    twice and probably had a mild, symptom-free infection before that. I
    have always been unusually resistant to viruses. Mask fog up my glasses
    and make me miserable. If you have chosen not to get your shots, swell,
    that’s your choice, but your exercise of personal liberty is not going
    to restrict mine without a fight. And don’t tell me I have to wear a
    mask so phobics feel “safe.” That’s not my problem either. I am not
    inclined to “social distance,” either. The mask fetish is going to
    strangle community, society and the joy of life unless we draw some hard >>> lines. I’m drawing.

    Durham face mask requirement goes in effect today
    Tags: coronavirus, face mask
    Posted August 7, 2021 4:25 p.m. EDT
    Updated August 9, 2021 11:00 a.m. EDT


    By Sydney Franklin, WRAL multiplatform producer & Aaron Thomas, WRAL
    reporter

    DURHAM, N.C. — Everyone must wear face masks indoors in Durham,
    according to a new state of emergency from county and city officials.

    The new state of emergency will go into effect on Monday at 5 p.m.

    Face masks will be required in any indoor public place, businesses or
    establishment, even for people who have been vaccinated.

    A New Surge at an ICU in California Triage tents back up at Duke
    Hospital as COVID-19 cases spike
    Officials said the new state of emergency stems from the rise in
    COVID-19 cases from the Delta variant.

    "I think it's a great idea. I 100 percent support it. We don't know what >>> the virus is doing and we are back where we were," said Durham resident
    Natalia Harwood.

    ADVERTISING

    Over the past month, the percent positive rate of infections in Durham
    County has doubled from 2.3 percent to 4.6 percent, according to officials. >>>
    On Friday, North Carolina reported 4,506 new cases -- which is nearly 20 >>> times higher than the number the state reported a month ago.

    "This is a direction we did not want to move in," said Durham Councilman >>> Mark-Anthony Middleton. "We're not out of the woods yet. We're better
    off than we were before, but we're not out of the woods yet."

    Middleton said city officials aren't looking to arrest or fine people
    for not wearing a mask. Ultimately, Middleton said it's up to businesses >>> and neighbors to look out for each other.

    North Carolina's state mask mandate expired on July 30. Gov. Roy Cooper
    has pressed businesses statewide to verify whether employees are
    vaccinated against coronavirus, and, if not, require them to wear masks
    and take weekly virus tests.


    The push won’t be a requirement for businesses, but "a strong
    recommendation," Cooper said.

    Matt Calabria, chair of the Wake County Board of Commissioners, said
    Wake County has no "immediate plans to require that the general public
    wear masks indoors."

    In late July, Wake County leaders announced masks would be required in
    county buildings, such as libraries, courthouses and EMS facilities.

    In Durham, Exotique Clothing Store manager Hakim Zayid-Bey said the new
    mandate doesn't impact his business much.

    "I never took down the sign for masks," he said. "It's always good if
    somebody has a cold or cough."

    Durham Mayor Steve Schewel encouraged residents to get vaccinated to
    help "curb the development of variants."

    "The city and county are also doubling down on our efforts to take
    vaccines into many of our communities," Schewel said in a press release. >>>
    Schewel said that instituting a mask mandate was to help protect
    residents and their vulnerable neighbors.

    Harwood said she'll do what needs to be done to keep her family safe.

    "Putting a mask on is the least you can do," she said.

    Facts Don’t Matter: Charles Blow Says Vaccination Resistance Is Donald
    Trump’s Fault
    AUGUST 9, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL
    Chart vaccine

    The New York Times has a lot of Trump Deranged op-ed writers, a lot of
    jackasses, and quite a few race-baiters in the mix as well. None scores
    as high in all three categories as the arrogant Charles M. Blow. His
    continued presence on the Times opinion pages is a continuing insult to
    black pundits everywhere. Blow obviously only has his job because he is
    black, and if this is the best the most prestigious paper in the country >>> could do in seeking “diversity,” “The Bell Curve” was more accurate than >>> we thought. But Blow isn’t the best, or even one of the best, black
    pundits the Times could employ, and he’s unbearably pompous to boot.

    Yesterday Blow’s column was titled “Anti-Vax Insanity.” I have not read
    a Blow column for more than a year, but this made me think, “Gee, a
    column from Blow that doesn’t involve foaming at the mouth over Donald
    Trump!” Silly me. Here is how it starts:

    “Nothing better exemplifies the gaping political divide in this country
    than our embarrassing and asinine vaccine response. Donald Trump’s
    scorched earth political strategy has fooled millions of Americans into
    flirting with death. And now thousands are once again dying for it.”

    Later he writes,

    “Why were Americans turning away a vaccine that many people in other
    parts of the world were literally dying for? Many did so because of
    their fidelity to the lie and their fidelity to the liar. They did it
    because they were — and still are — slavishly devoted to Trump, and
    because many politicians and conservative commentators helped Trump
    propagate his lies.”

    Blow managed to find one poll —you know, polls—that kind of backed his
    thesis if you squint hard and aren’t thinking clearly, except that it
    doesn’t mention Donald Trump at all. That’s a pretty big “except.” What
    the poll shows is that more Republicans than Democrats distrust the
    vaccine and object to the government telling them they have to take the
    shots. Well, that would have been the result if Donald Trump had never
    been born, and whether the vaccine was deadly or conveyed immortality.


    Blow doesn’t even read his own paper. The Times did one of the
    investigative reporting jobs that keeps me subscribing—barely!—at the
    beginning of the month with a front page feature headlined, “Who are the >>> unvaccinated in America? There’s no one answer.”

    Remember: Blow just wrote that the one answer is “Trump.”

    The piece has 3363 words. “Trump” appears once, in a paragraph near the
    end describing an 82-year-old man who has been avoiding vaccinations all >>> his life:

    “Mr. Sims always managed to take a bathroom break. He said he would
    emerge after his turn had passed. Now he lives in Houston and identifies >>> as more of a libertarian than a Republican, though he voted for Donald
    J. Trump in November. But Mr. Sims was emphatic that his politics have
    not shaped his near lifelong antipathy to vaccines. ‘It has to do with
    my civil rights,’ he said. ‘The United States government’s main job is
    to protect me from foreign and domestic enemies. Not my health. I’m in
    charge of my health.'”

    Got it. It’s all Donald Trump’s fault. Clear as a bell.

    Blow, for such a pompous ass, doesn’t comprehend basic logic or the
    significance of correlations. People who don’t trust the government
    tended to support Trump, and people who don’t trust the government tend
    to be wary of the vaccine. That doesn’t make Trump responsible for
    vaccine resistance, or even suggest it. Indeed, Trump sees the
    development of the vaccine on his speedy timetable as a personal
    accomplishment. He has urged Americans to get vaccinated. Never mind. To >>> Blow and those like him—it’s horrifying to consider that anyone’s like
    him—Trump is responsible for everything and anything they don’t like.

    The Times’ list of reasons why people are not getting vaccinated is
    interesting, and it also doesn’t include “President Trump.” The #1
    reason is fear of side-effects. That may be overblown, but it isn’t
    “insane.” #2 is “Waiting to see if safe.” Well, how long are they going
    to wait? Still not “insane.” 27% don’t trust the government. That’s
    amazing: it should be close to 100%. The public has listened to the
    flip-flops, obfuscations and lies of Dr. Fauci and the CDC; it has seen
    mayors and governors and the Speaker of the House insist that wearing
    masks and social distancing were essential and then see them break their >>> own rules, and often lie about it.

    In another chart (above), the Times tries to track the demographic
    profiles of those who are waiting for more information about vaccines
    compared to those who say they will not consider them. It exposes Blow’s >>> deceptive representation of the Monmouth poll. It is true that the
    “NeverVax” group is overwhelmingly GOP, but the “wait and see” group is
    pretty evenly divided between Donkeys and Elephants. Both groups aren’t
    vaccinated.

    Charles Blow’s Trump-Deranged, partisan distortion is, in short,
    disinformation. Yes, it’s opinion, but it is opinion sanctified by being >>> published in the Times, by a writer the Times is presenting as
    responsible and worthy of attention. It’s just the kind of
    disinformation—from the Left, in other words, calculated to nourish hate >>> and disvision— that the social media platforms won’t censor, and that
    the New York Times will publish….even if its own pages expose it as
    divisive, malicious lies.

    "The former guy" is being blamed for vaccine hesitancy among his
    followers just as our LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth was blamed for His
    followers not fasting to stop the sin of gluttony (little did the
    Pharisees know that holding ourselves to the right daily amount also
    stops the sin of gluttony).

    A leader will be blamed for the sins of their followers.

    To not do our part to stop the pandemic is a sin.

    So let's follow the LORD, Who is wonderfully hungry (
    http://bit.ly/Lk2442 ) and Who is willing to help us stop the
    pandemic, instead of "the former guy" who isn't either.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who

    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
    COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    Comment Of The Day: “Comment Of The Day: ‘Theater Ethics Meets Pandemic

    AUGUST 11, 2021 / JACK MARSHALL


    It has been a hugely informative and entertaining knockdown, drag-out
    comment battle over vaccine hesitancy the last few days on not just one
    but two posts on the topic. It’s time to add another. One irony of long
    comment threads, which make me happy as a blog proprietor, is that many
    readers don’t have the patience to pick through them. I’m sometimes
    guilty of that myself.

    This Comment of the Day by Ryan Harkins on Humble Talent’s own
    provocative (to understate it) Comment Of The Day on my post, “Theater

    rightful, earned non-partisan name.)

    ***

    First, I want to take exception to conflating hesitancy to take the
    COVID-19 vaccines and anti-vaxxers. There’s a huge difference between
    being skeptical about one particular vaccine and being skeptical about
    all vaccines. And conflating the two blurs the issues and dismisses out
    of hand legitimate arguments and concerns.

    I stand in an odd position, because I oppose getting any of the COVID-19 >>> vaccines, and I have been vaccinated. I took the double doses of the
    Moderna vaccine when it became available at my workplace. Was it to
    protect my family (my wife is pregnant with our fourth)? Not at all.
    We’re all healthy, and the odds of the coronavirus having any effect
    other than a harsh cold for my household is surprisingly small. Was it
    because my workplace pressured me into it? No, though I will cite that
    the 14 days paid sick time goes away if I snag a sufficiently large
    batch of SARS-CoV-2 and I’m not vaccinated.

    So why did I get the vaccine? At the time, I believed it the right thing >>> to do to help the efforts of reaching herd immunity. So what has changed >>> since then? Let’s consider my thinking, meandering as it is.


    I don’t think there’s any legitimate argument against the efficacy of
    the vaccines, especially the Moderna and Pfizer variants. I agree they
    reduce the infection rate, they reduce the virulence of infections, and
    they reduce the death rates. I also think, from a standpoint of trying
    to reach heard immunity, the vaccines go a good way towards
    accomplishing that.

    Do I support people in their hesitancy with regards to the long-term
    side effects? Absolutely. We’ve had tremendous success with vaccines
    over the course of the last century or more. Vaccines are one aspect
    that has helped us achieve such extended lifespans. But we’ve also seen
    drugs and vaccines and therapies come onto the market, and then have
    their approval revoked when some unanticipated side effects emerge. mRNA >>> vaccines have been under development for 20 years or more, but until now >>> they’ve never been marketed. There’s bound not only to be side-effects,
    but a large number of unanticipated side-effects, and it is reasonable
    to want to wait until more information is available. Certainly an FDA
    approval (which is rumored to be coming soon for Pfizer) would go a long >>> way to assuage fears. Until then, it is reasonable to wait. But that’s
    not the reason I’m opposed to taking the vaccines.

    Do I look at the numbers? Yes, I do. Does it appear that currently there >>> are higher rates of side-effects reported than for any other vaccine in
    recent history? Yes. VAERS is seeing a surge in reporting on the
    COVID-19 vaccines. AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson were halted in
    places over concerns of larger-than-expected numbers of side-effects.
    Does this justify not getting the vaccine? Not necessarily. This is a
    balancing act. If the side-effects of the vaccine are less frequent in
    cases and severity than acquiring COVID-19 naturally, then the numbers
    still recommend the vaccine. And I believe the numbers currently show
    the balance to be in favor of the vaccines. This could potentially flip
    with the Delta, Lambda, Omicron, Babylon 5, or Death Star variants, but
    we still have to wait for time and data to reveal what’s happening
    there. So that’s also not my reason for opposition.

    So why I am opposed to getting the vaccine? In true “Retards for
    Freedom” [Editor’s Note: this is a reference to Humble Talent’s COTD.]
    fashion, I’ll cite freedom. Not from a standpoint of my-body-my-choice,
    because I don’t believe that. (I oppose abortion, remember?) It doesn’t
    pass a societal test, and it doesn’t pass the Catholic moral theology
    test. But there’s a greater concern going on here, and I believe it is
    encapsulated in the vaccine passports and the threat to freedom that
    represents. Vaccine passports are the gateway drug into the full
    oppression of a populace. Show your party credentials, or you’ll be
    thrown out. We’re already seeing that New York. No restaurant access
    without the passport. And if the government can get away with forcing
    such passports on us, do you really, truly, honestly think they’ll stop
    there?

    Maybe I’m being heavily influenced right now as I’m reading “The Rise
    and Fall of the Third Reich” by William Shirer (“Hi, my name is Ryan,
    and I’m falling into the ‘my opponents are Nazis trap…’”), but it
    certainly seems that if the government can revoke rights because of
    crises, they will continue to create crises so they can continue
    revoking rights. Eventually they will have such a precedent of success
    in revoking rights that they’ll just do it without a crises. And by
    then, it will be too late.

    Will more people die if people don’t get vaccinated? Probably. But
    that’s the cost of pushing back against the totalitarian mindset
    besieging us. I see this in the same light as the gun debate. Yes, more
    people will die due to guns by keeping gun ownership a right. But it is
    a cost that has to be paid to keep freedoms intact.

    To oppose others getting vaccinated, while confessing one has gotten
    vaccinated is confessing to hypocrisy which is confessing to a sin.
    He is urging people not to get the vaccine because it led to vaccine
    passports, which will be a slippery slope to the government taking away
    more freedom.

    Moreover, not doing our part to stop the COVID-19 pandemic is also a
    sin.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
    best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
    COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has set out a plan to start re-opening the >>> borders, starting with a trial this year of home isolation or shorter
    MIQ stays for selected travellers

    Leading epidemiologist Sir David Skegg says New Zealand has been "let
    down by its allies" in its fight to eliminate Covid-19.

    Skegg is the chair of an independent panel of experts who yesterday
    provided advice to the Government on its ongoing Covid response strategy. >>>
    The Prime Minister responded this morning. She has set out a plan to
    start re-opening the borders from next year, starting with a trial
    between October and December of self-isolation for vaccinated New
    Zealanders arriving back into the country.

    That would be followed by the phased resumption of quarantine-free
    travel in the future. The plan would eventually see three "pathways of
    travel" into New Zealand.

    Virus 'still winning the war'
    Speaking at this morning's press conference, Skegg said despite vaccine
    development the virus was "still winning the war".

    New Zealand's allies could have pursued an elimination strategy, Skegg
    said, but they chose not to.

    "Many of the countries that could have eliminated Covid-19 either never
    tried, or threw in the towel."

    Each country had done its own thing. The independent channel chaired by
    Helen Clark showed a weakened World Health Organisation unable to
    provide the leadership required.

    There were also new variants, including Delta, making the virus more
    difficult to control.

    Only half of contracted port workers vaccinated - Hipkins

    Quick Read
    Referencing Winston Churchill, Skegg asked how he could have had a
    detailed plan to defeat the enemy at the beginning of the war.

    "Nor can we pretend to have a detailed plan with how we can reconnect
    with the world over the next year or two."

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The priority was to get as many New Zealanders as possible protected by
    vaccination by the end of the year. But by then there could be a new
    variant, more challenging than Delta.

    ?
    There would be, though, more known about vaccine efficacy, better
    testing, and even potentially anti-viral technology that could
    "completely change our attitude to this virus".

    There however still needed to be a strategy, he said. The first question >>> his group looked at was if elimination was still viable. Many people had >>> said elimination was impossible.

    "Well they were wrong," Skegg said.

    He compared the New Zealand situation with that of Scotland, which had a >>> similar population. Here 26 people had died; there more than 10,000.

    "We dodged a bullet," Skegg said.

    But reopening borders and new variants raised further questions. The
    experts concluded that at this stage elimination was not only viable but >>> the best option.

    "It allows us to enjoy a lifestyle relatively unaffected by the ravages
    of Covid-19 and protect our health service and economy."

    The United Kingdom had a great vaccination rollout, with 84 per cent of
    adults having antibodies from vaccination or past infection. Yet last
    week they still had 627 deaths from Covid - equivalent of 48 a week
    here, based on population.

    There were also heavy social and work restrictions, with enforced mask
    use and a fear of contagion.

    This was a real thing in the world today.

    "I hope not to spend the rest of my life shielding from others. I don't
    want to spend the rest of my life looking at beautiful faces covered by
    masks. We are going for gold and we may not succeed, if we don't achieve >>> high vaccination."

    Along with high vaccination there also needed to remain precautions at
    the border.

    The group had suggested a gradual reopening, with quarantine-free travel >>>from low and medium-risk countries, with proof of vaccination, testing
    and contact tracing measures.

    This would occur from the beginning of next year, when everybody had a
    chance to be vaccinated.

    The group did not favour setting a vaccination target, rather aiming for >>> getting everybody vaccinated.

    Lockdowns destroy business confidence: Rob Fyfe
    Rob Fyfe told the press conference that, looking through a business
    lens, what destroyed confidence and viability was lockdowns.

    "Businesses need to do everything they can to support people to be
    vaccinated."

    There were many tools, including border measures, but lockdowns were the >>> inevitable consequence where they failed.

    Businesses could help people be available to be vaccinated and create
    understanding.

    They could also encourage QR scanning and testing.

    Strategies need to recognise M?ori community
    Dr Maia Brewerton said in terms of the M?ori response, it was important
    the strategies and vaccination rollout recognised community.

    "At the heart of being M?ori, you put your wh?nau and community ahead of >>> yourself. That was very much what happened around New Zealand. It is not >>> unique to M?ori ... but it is very important what we do is led by our
    communities."

    It was clear from the rollout not one size fit all. The rollout needed
    to be dynamic, adapt where needed, especially to reach out to the
    marginalised and vulnerable.

    "We need to focus on those who are not accessing the vaccine, change the >>> rollout if need be to meet those people, ask what we can do differently. >>> Nobody knows a community like that community, a wh?nau like that wh?nau. >>> People want the vaccine, but are not able to access it."

    The Pasifika perspective
    Dr Api Talemaitoga said equity needed to be at the heart of the
    vaccination rollout.

    From a Pasifika perspective, there needed to be greater focus on
    education, location of vaccinations, but also on community.

    It was worrying that hesitancy was used as a blame, and took away the
    focus from education.

    In terms of venue, Talemaitoga said it needed to be centred around the
    community and what those communities value.

    'If we do our jobs well we will get high rates of coverage': Bloomfield
    Dr Ashley Bloomfield said he never felt vaccine hesitancy was the problem. >>>
    "We know most people if they have information from someone they trust,
    offered a vaccine in a setting by someone they trust they take up that
    offer. If we do our job well we will get high rates of coverage."

    Skegg said it was important as many as possible were vaccinated, because >>> if not it would be less effective.

    It could mean the health service would be swamped, meaning delays for
    elective surgery, and for things like cancer, heart attacks and stroke.

    "I hope we can be unselfish and care about each other, we also need to
    care about the whole.

    "I hope we can beat the world at vaccination as well."

    Asked about 12- to 15-year-olds being vaccinated before the school
    holidays, Bloomfield said "watch this space".

    They were still awaiting trial results and evidence around efficacy and
    safety.

    "We are watching like a hawk," he said.

    'We have to open up': John Key
    Meanwhile, former NZ Prime Minister Sir John Key says the Government
    should adopt a telethon-style approach to boost vaccination numbers and
    open up our borders by Christmas.

    Key told Newstalk ZB's Mike Hosking this morning that, rather than
    aiming for elimination, the focus should switch to relaxing travel bans
    and getting everyone a double jab in the coming months.

    "We have to open up. We can't sit back forever where businesses and
    families can't get in or out of New Zealand."

    With the elimination strategy being abandoned in countries across the
    globe, including Australia, the Government should admit it was no longer >>> a viable strategy, Key said.

    Instead, it was important to get the population fully vaccinated and
    live with the virus.

    Key said the way to achieve this was to set vaccination targets that
    were constantly screened, very much like telethon target totals.

    "If you sit there and are going to say we are going to open up the
    borders by Christmas and we're going to give everyone the chance to be
    double jabbed by Christmas, why wouldn't you just be constantly running
    it on the corner of the TV every single day between now and then with
    the days left and the number of people jabbed?" he asked.

    Earlier advice painted sobering picture
    His comments came after Sir David Skegg said borders will re-open next
    year after the vaccine rollout finishes, but only then will experts be
    able to see if enough of the population is vaccinated to stay the
    elimination course.

    Skegg was speaking to the Herald after an expert panel he chairs
    released its advice to the Government, and ahead of today's press
    conference.

    The group's advice, released yesterday, paints a sobering picture of an
    uncertain future in a world still gripped by Covid-19, where overseas
    travel is limited to the fully vaccinated and herd immunity is
    unattainable, making public health measures an important part of the
    elimination puzzle as border restrictions are eased.

    The advice included a caveat that no one really knows what the Covid-hit >>> world will look like in three to five years, or even in six months'
    time, which makes making promises about when the borders will reopen
    problematic.

    borders should re-open. Photo / Supplied

    That was in part the reason the group didn't provide a target for when
    the borders could start to re-open and enough people were vaccinated for >>> life to continue much as it does now - with few community Covid cases
    that are quickly stamped out as they arise.

    Skegg added that the number of unvaccinated port workers at the border
    remained "a major concern", especially in light of the 98 port workers
    in Tauranga who had a Covid-scare with the Rio de la Plata - only nine
    of them were fully vaccinated.

    "I was shocked by the low vaccination uptake by port workers in
    Tauranga. Hopefully this is now being addressed."

    In Australia, an expert panel similar to Skegg's one has suggested 80
    per cent vaccination coverage of the eligible population before
    international travel might be opened up more.

    "There is no way of determining this [level of vaccination coverage]

    "Then we will discover whether the vaccination coverage achieved,
    together with our recommended precautions, such as rapid testing of
    travellers on arrival, plus strengthened public health and social
    measures, will be enough to maintain elimination of Covid-19."

    More open borders would inevitably lead to some outbreaks, but with a
    high level of vaccination coverage and public health measures -
    including localised lockdowns - these could be quickly stamped out.

    Skegg said having large cohorts of unvaccinated people in different
    pockets of New Zealand could endanger not only them, but the vaccinated
    as well.

    "The hospitals would be swamped and that would affect all kinds of
    people, including those needing urgent cancer treatment. That has been a >>> major problem in other countries, such as the UK."


    The first phase of the re-opening, the group suggested, should be for
    fully vaccinated Kiwi travellers returning from short overseas trips to
    low-risk countries.

    That was in part because their vaccination status would be reliably
    known, including which vaccine they've had - aspects that may not be so
    easy to certify in other travellers.

    Skegg couldn't say how long it would take to transition from there to
    quarantine-free entry, but piloting each phase would provide some
    insights to the timeline.

    He said it would be ideal if the quarantine-free travel bubbles with
    Australia and the Cook Islands became travel corridors for the fully
    vaccinated.

    That is already in the Government's thinking.

    Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins said yesterday re-opening the
    transtasman travel bubble might only happen for New Zealand citizens or
    those who are fully vaccinated.

    Covid
    The panel also points out the health system is still poorly resourced,
    and Skegg has recommended a review of how the system would deal with
    Covid-19 outbreaks.

    "The relatively low provision of ICU beds per capita is certainly a
    concern."

    It was difficult to say for how long Covid-19 outbreaks and the
    possibility of localised lockdowns would be part of the new normal.

    "It is too hard to predict. This pandemic keeps surprising everyone, and >>> that is likely to continue."

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    N.Z. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who

    "We would have seen a surge if we were going to see a surge, at this
    point," Chicago Dept. of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said.


    Block Club Chicago Staff
    10:40 AM CDT on Aug 12, 2021

    CHICAGO — Chicago’s top doctor said 203 people who attended Lollapalooza >>> tested positive for COVID-19 in the two weeks since the event began at
    Grant Park.

    Chicago Dept. of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said the
    results do not indicate Lollapalooza was a super-spreader event, saying
    officials predicted seeing about 200 new cases.

    Arwady, in a Thursday morning briefing, said 127 vaccinated people who
    attended Lollapalooza later tested positive. An additional 76
    unvaccinated people who attended tested positive.


    Arwady said more positive test results could still come in from other
    jurisdictions, but because of the amount of time that has passed, she
    does not consider it a super-spreader event.

    “We would have seen a surge if we were going to see a surge, at this
    point” Arwady said.

    “There’s no evidence of a super-spreader event, and there’s no evidence
    of substantial impact to Chicago’s COVID epidemiology.”

    Arwady said the city used a “conservative estimate” that 88 percent of
    the 385,000 attendees were vaccinated. That calculates to 0.04 percent
    of vaccinated people later testing positive — about 4 in 10,000 people.

    Of the unvaccinated, 0.16 percent later tested positive, she said. That
    is about 16 in 10,000 people.

    Of the positives, 58 were Chicago residents, 138 were non-Chicago
    Illinois residents and 7 were from out of state. She said the city, in
    surveying for the results, took a broad view of potential infections and >>> counted anyone who tested positive and had been at the festival.

    “We’re not saying all of these folks were infected at Lolla,” she said.

    No hospitalizations or deaths were reported, she said.

    Of the 58 Chicago residents infected, 13 told surveyors they attended
    Lollapalooza “on or after the day their symptoms began,” Arwady said.

    “This is a really important reminder we need everyone in Chicago not to
    ignore symptoms, assume it’s a summer cold, regardless of your
    vaccination status,” she said. “Because we know vaccines are not 100
    percent effective.”

    The news surprised those who were expecting a surge following the large
    event. Arwady said the department came to the 203 number based on
    surveys, contact tracing, emergency room visits and by consulting with
    other health departments.

    The city has been criticized for its lackluster contact tracing program, >>> but Arwady said the city did an extensive investigation into cases
    linked to the festival.


    Vaccinations:

    • In Illinois, about 6.5 million people of all ages — or 51.26 percent
    of the state’s 12.7 million people — have gotten all their COVID-19
    vaccine shots, according to state data.

    • Across the state, 27,611 vaccine doses are being administered per day, >>> based on a seven-day rolling average.

    • Illinois and Chicago have administered at least 13,463,308 vaccine
    doses of the 15,223,455 provided to them.

    • City data shows more than 1.44 million Chicagoans — or 53.8 percent of >>> all residents — have gotten fully vaccinated. About 59.1 percent of all
    Chicagoans have gotten at least one shot.

    COVID-19 vaccinations are free and do not require insurance. Anyone can
    call the city’s coronavirus hotline at 312-746-4835 to get more
    information on how and where to get vaccinated in their community.

    The numbers:

    • Twenty-four Illinoisans were reported dead from COVID-19 since Wednesday. >>>
    • At least 23,575 people have died from COVID-19 in Illinois, and
    another 2,500 deaths are probably related to the virus, accordingw to
    the state.

    • The state reported 3,114 cases since Wednesday. That brings the total
    number of confirmed cases in Illinois up to 1,454,208.

    • Since Wednesday, 71,820 tests were reported statewide. In all,
    27,536,684 tests have been reported in Illinois.

    • Illinois’ seven-day positivity rate was at 5 percent. The figure
    represents the percentage of people testing positive among recent tests. >>> It was at 5.1 percent Wednesday.

    • Illinois’ seven-day test positivity rate, which measures the
    percentage of tests that were positive, was at 5.8 percent. It was at
    5.7 percent Wednesday.

    • As of Wednesday night, 324 people with COVID-19 were in the ICU and
    152 people with COVID-19 were using ventilators in Illinois.

    • In Chicago, three deaths were reported since Wednesday. There have
    been at least 5,539 deaths from COVID-19 in Chicago. The city is seeing
    an average of more than two deaths per day, a 29 percent increase from
    the week prior.

    • Chicago has had 343 confirmed cases reported since Wednesday. It’s had >>> a total of 294,269 confirmed cases. An average of 364 confirmed cases
    are being reported per day, a 39 percent increase from the week prior.

    • At the same time, testing has increased 27 percent since a week ago.

    • Chicago’s positivity rate was at 3.8 percent, up from 3.5 percent the
    week prior.

    Restaurants Become the New Covid-19 Vaccine Enforcers—for Better or Worse >>> Dining out in some places now requires proof of vaccination, putting
    workers in tough spots; ‘people scream at us through the phone’
    By Heather Haddon | Photographs by Chona Kasinger for The Wall Street
    Journal
    Aug. 15, 2021 5:30 am ET
    Restaurant managers and hosts are being assigned a new job—vaccination
    police—and it’s dividing businesses and customers.
    Some U.S. municipalities are asking restaurants, bars and other
    businesses to verify patrons’ Covid-19 vaccination status before they
    can dine or drink indoors, much as some European nations have begun to
    do. The local mandates come as some bars and restaurants have
    voluntarily started asking patrons to prove their vaccination status,
    including a growing number in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
    Some restaurant owners checking diners’ vaccination status or a negative >>> Covid-19 test say the practices——intended to help move beyond the
    pandemic——introduce new logistics.
    Customers have canceled reservations and gotten angry when showing up
    unaware of the new rules, some owners said. Some online reviews of their >>> restaurants now blast the new policies. Other owners say they and their
    staff have received anonymous threats from people who accuse them of
    infringing on individual freedoms and discriminating against the
    unvaccinated.
    “People scream at us through the phone. They say racist things. It’s all >>> about the vaccines,” said James Lim, owner of the Watson’s Counter
    restaurant and cafe in the Seattle suburb of Ballard, Wash.

    Watson’s Counter owner James Lim says the staff supported the voluntary
    move to require indoor diners to show proof of vaccination.
    Mr. Lim said his staff supported voluntarily instituting a
    proof-of-vaccination requirement when the restaurant reopened for
    dine-in service earlier this month. Many customers of the restaurant
    welcomed the move, he said, but the hostility has troubled Watson’s
    younger workers.

    Thousands of other U.S. restaurants soon will be joining Watson’s.
    Starting Monday, New York City restaurants must verify that a customer
    has had at least one dose of a vaccine before entering to eat, with city >>> enforcement starting on Sept. 13. New Orleans also will start to impose
    a vaccination mandate or negative Covid-19 test for indoor dining
    starting Monday. Philadelphia last week added an incentive for
    restaurants to check vaccination status, saying that indoor dining
    without masks can continue only if all patrons and workers are vaccinated. >>> San Francisco will begin enforcing one of the strictest rules Friday,
    allowing only fully vaccinated people to dine indoors. Elsewhere in
    California, Palm Springs and California City will begin requiring proof
    of vaccination or a recent negative Covid-19 test for indoor dining and
    drinking in the coming weeks. Los Angeles is weighing similar measures.
    “Our economy is so dependent on tourism. It’s essential to be known that >>> we are safe,” said Palm Springs Mayor Christy Gilbert Holstege.
    The proof-of-vaccine screening is the latest in a series of
    pandemic-related requirements placed on restaurants over the last 18 months.

    Many Watson’s Counter customers welcomed the move to require proof of
    vaccination, its owner says, but the restaurant also has been on the
    receiving end of hostility.
    Some restaurants already requiring vaccination proof say they are
    willing to do whatever it takes to avoid their dining rooms being closed >>> down again due to coronavirus surges. Owners say they believe loyal
    customers will reward them with business and they are willing to endure
    the criticism.
    “We don’t want to get shut down again. It’s that simple,” said Dean
    Lavine, owner of Palm Springs bar and restaurant Blackbook, which
    started checking customers’ vaccination status earlier this month.
    SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS
    What do you think of the prospect of being asked to show proof of
    vaccination when dining out? Join the conversation below.
    Others are skeptical about private businesses being asked to enforce
    vaccine mandates. Some fear driving unvaccinated people away, or
    confusing customers.
    Laurie Thomas, owner of two San Francisco establishments and executive
    director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, said she supports
    the city’s new rules, but worries about her staff having to enforce the
    mandate.
    “Tell me the last time you were carded at a restaurant? It’s a different >>> level of training,” said Ms. Thomas, who wants the mandate to be widely
    publicized so customers aren’t surprised.

    Some restaurants requiring proof of vaccination say they are willing to
    do whatever it takes to avoid another shutdown.
    Business for restaurants was strong heading into the summer but has
    slipped as the Covid-19 Delta variant has spread. Restaurant sales
    growth in the week ended Aug. 1 was the slowest in nearly two months,
    according to restaurant-analytics firm Black Box Intelligence. More
    customers are mentioning Covid-19 safety practices in recent online
    reviews, Black Box found.
    Americans are split over needing to disclose vaccination status to dine out.
    Janet Russell, a property manager from Arlington, Va, said she’s opposed >>> to rules requiring proof of vaccination. “These small businesses that
    have already suffered tremendously during lockdown should not have to
    shoulder the burden,” Ms. Russell said.
    Restaurateurs are divided, too. Palm Springs businesses largely
    supported the move before it was adopted, for example, while most
    Colorado restaurants are opposed to proof-of-vaccine mandates out of
    concern for their staff having to police customer compliance, according
    to polls by local business groups. Some restaurant managers, fearing
    lawsuits from disgruntled patrons, said they want clear guidelines from
    local officials on how to determine vaccination status.
    In New York City, restaurant operators are trying to determine how their >>> workers will verify customers’ vaccination status. The city order also
    requires all restaurant workers to be vaccinated.
    Executives at Shake Shack Inc., Panera Bread Co. and Applebee’s-parent
    Dine Brands Global Inc. all said they intended to comply but are still
    trying to understand the requirements.
    “I do worry a little bit about the responsibility of checking ID cards,
    and the place that puts our hosts and hostesses,” said Dine Chief
    Executive John Peyton. “I’m hopeful that New Yorkers are respectful of
    what’s now required.”

    Surveys have found owners and consumers to be divided over vaccine
    mandates for restaurants.
    A survey of 536 consumers last month by market-research firm
    Datassential found diners about evenly split over whether they would
    comply with a proof-of-vaccination requirement at a restaurant.
    “I understand the objections to it. People think it’s unfair,” said Sam
    West, a 26-year-old Manhattan restaurant server. “But now I think of it
    as a necessary evil.”
    South Seattle small-plates restaurant Off Alley began requiring diners
    to show proof of vaccination in late July. Co-owner Meghna Prakash said
    customers have generally been supportive but online backlash is taking a >>> toll. Off Alley has received negative online reviews from people who
    haven’t dined there, and she has been called discriminatory, Ms. Prakash >>> said.
    “Making these policy decisions by ourselves is putting targets on our
    backs,” she said.

    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern put the nation into a
    three-day lockdown after the discovery of the first community case of
    Covid-19 since February.

    The snap lockdown will begin at midnight tonight as authorities rush to
    identify the source of a single infection in largest city Auckland,
    Ardern said at a news conference Tuesday in Wellington. While genome
    sequencing has yet to be completed, the case is assumed to be the highly >>> infectious delta variant, she said.


    “Delta has been a game-changer, we’re responding to that,” Ardern said.
    “The best thing we can do to get out of this as quickly as we can is to
    go hard.”

    Delayed Wuhan Report Adds Crucial Detail to Covid Origin Puzzle
    It is New Zealand’s first nationwide lockdown since the initial pandemic >>> response over a year ago. Under so-called Alert Level 4, all schools,
    public venues and most businesses must close and people are urged to
    wear a face covering if they need to venture out. Only shops providing
    essential services such as groceries, gasoline and health products can
    stay open.

    The New Zealand dollar plunged more than one U.S. cent when the case was >>> reported, falling to as low as 69.07 cents. Bond yields and swap rates
    tumbled as investors reduced bets that the central bank will raise
    interest rates at its policy decision on Wednesday.

    The case is an unvaccinated man in his 50s from Auckland who is deemed
    to have been infectious since Aug. 12, Director General of Health Ashley >>> Bloomfield told the news conference. He and his fully vaccinated wife
    were in the nearby Coromandel region over the weekend, where they
    visited a crowded pub on Saturday night to watch an All Blacks rugby
    game, he said.

    Because of those movements and the probability of it being delta,
    officials advised an immediate nationwide response. Auckland and the
    Coromandel have been placed into lockdown for seven days.

    “Going hard and early has worked for us before,” Ardern said. “We want
    to be short and hard, rather than light and long.”

    Delta Challenge
    New Zealand has so far largely kept the virus out of the community,
    allowing its economy to recover quickly during the pandemic. But a slow
    vaccine rollout has left it vulnerable to another outbreak, particularly >>> of the delta strain that is challenging virus containment efforts around >>> the world.


    Along with Australia, which has strict border curbs like New Zealand,
    China is battling a delta-fueled outbreak after the variant got in via
    cleaners at an airport. It has taken a similarly zero-tolerance
    approach, testing millions of people and locking down city districts to
    rein in cases.

    It’s a strategy that’s running into resistance in some so-called Covid
    Zero countries as people tire of restrictions while other parts of the
    world open up.

    Ardern cited Australia’s experience with delta as a reason for swift
    nationwide action, saying “we don’t want that experience here.”

    Australia’s outbreak continues to spread despite more than half the
    nation’s 26 million people being placed into lockdown. New South Wales
    state recorded 452 new cases on Tuesday after a record of 478 set the
    previous day, with the vast bulk of those infections detected in Sydney. >>>
    Australia’s most-populous city has been in lockdown for more than seven
    weeks and some health experts have criticized the New South Wales
    government for acting too late, after the virus was already seeded in
    the community.

    RBNZ Decision
    New Zealand’s case comes on the eve of the Reserve Bank’s review of the
    official cash rate. Prior to news of the lockdown, a majority of
    economists were forecasting a quarter percentage point hike in response
    to an overheating economy.

    Those at Westpac and ASB changed their calls after Ardern’s press
    conference late Tuesday, saying they now expect the RBNZ to keep the OCR >>> on hold at 0.25% on Wednesday.

    “It is logical that the RBNZ will pause until more certainty over the
    extent of the community Covid outbreak and lockdown is established,”
    said Nick Tuffley, chief economist at ASB in Auckland. Still, “provided
    the lockdown is short and doesn’t change the underlying economic
    picture, we would still anticipate the OCR reaching 1.5% by the end of
    the year,” he said.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    N.Z. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    Brooklyn business defies Key to NYC vaccine mandate: ‘I instantly
    thought that was so un-American’
    CORONAVIRUS
    by: Lauren Cook, Rebecca Solomon, Shirley Chan

    Posted: Aug 17, 2021 / 02:19 PM EDT / Updated: Aug 17, 2021 / 10:34 PM EDT >>> brooklyn business defies vaccine mandate
    Mary Josephine Generoso, the manager of Rocco’s in Bay Ridge Brooklyn,
    will not turn away unvaccinated patrons despite the city’s mandate.

    NEW YORK — New York City’s vaccine mandate for restaurants, gyms and
    entertainment venues began on Tuesday, but one business owner in
    Brooklyn says she won’t turn away unvaccinated customers.

    The sign on the front window of Rocco’s in Bay Ridge reads: “We do not
    discriminate against any customer based on sex, gender, race, creed, age >>> — vaccinated or unvaccinated — all customers who wish to patronize are
    welcome in our establishment.”

    However, if business owners do not comply with the city’s vaccine
    mandate, called the Key to NYC Pass, after Sept. 13, they could face
    fines up to $1,000 for a first offense. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the
    city would take an “escalator approach” with increasing, costly
    penalties for repeated offenses.

    Mary Josephine Generoso, the manager of Rocco’s, said she and her
    husband are willing to take the risk.

    “Once I heard the mayor come out and speak in the beginning of August
    stating that we were going to have to check vaccine status, I instantly
    thought that was so un-American. I could not understand how we were
    going to start discriminating against people who weren’t vaccinated,”
    she told PIX11 News on Tuesday. “I really feel like people should be
    able to enter an establishment if they choose to, whether they’re
    vaccinated or not.”

    Generoso also said it’s none of her business why people don’t want to
    get vaccinated and she urged de Blasio to rethink the mandate.

    Key to NYC Pass: Full list of places with COVID vaccine mandate
    When asked about Rocco’s during his COVID briefing Tuesday morning, the
    mayor pushed back against Generoso’s assertion that the mandate was
    discriminatory.


    “It’s not discrimination. It’s about protecting people,” de Blasio said. >>> He also noted the Key to NYC vaccine mandate does not apply to customers >>> who quickly go into a business to purchase or pick-up takeout or to-go
    items.

    De Blasio touted the mandate as the best way to avoid a return of
    pandemic-related restrictions, such as a mask mandate, amid a surge of
    new cases and hospitalizations related to the highly contagious delta
    variant.

    “We do not want to go back to restrictions,” he said.

    NYC’s vaccine mandate starts a day later than expected, adding to
    confusion and controversy
    Over the next few weeks, the city will ramp up its outreach and public
    awareness campaigns related to the Key to NYC before enforcement begins
    in September. Part of that outreach includes more mobile, pop-up
    vaccination sites strategically positioned outside businesses that now
    require proof of vaccination to enter.

    While some may not be on board with the mandate, other business owners
    applauded the city’s effort to get more people vaccinated.

    Abla Atoubi, the general manager of Bhatti Indian Grill, pointed out
    that unvaccinated New Yorkers can still dine outdoors.

    “It’s our restaurant, right, if you want to come dine at our house you
    have to abide by our rules. And nobody is forcing anybody to dine
    indoors; there’s still plenty of outdoor areas,” she said.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    NYC & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
    best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
    COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    England still sees 25,000 covid-19 cases per day but deaths have fallen
    sharply since the height of the pandemic.

    A staggering 94.2% of adults in England have antibodies for covid-19,
    according to a new report from the UK’s Office of National Statistics.
    Roughly 80.7% of England’s population has been fully vaccinated,
    suggesting the rest of the 94.2% acquired antibodies through natural
    infection with the coronavirus.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The report is great news for England, which has seen covid-19 rates
    plateau at roughly 25,000 per day. Deaths have remained extremely low,
    with a seven-day average of 81 covid-19 fatalities daily.

    The UK more broadly has also seen a rise in antibodies among adults,
    with 93.2% in Wales, 89.1% in Northern Ireland and 93.5% in Scotland,
    according to the Office of National Statistics. Again, part of that is >>>from high rates of vaccination and part of that is through natural
    infection.

    The UK was one of the hardest hit regions for covid-19 with over 6.36
    million cases and more than 131,000 deaths since the start of the pandemic. >>>

    The new report out of the UK should lift plenty of spirits for people
    who want to get the covid-19 pandemic behind them. Though admittedly,
    England has been wide open ever since it’s “Freedom Day” on July 19.

    “Across the four UK countries, the estimated percentage of adults aged
    25 to 34 years who have received one or more doses of a COVID-19 vaccine >>> ranged from 82.3% to 90.1% – this has increased sharply since the end of >>> May,” the Office of National Statistics said in a statement early Thursday. >>>
    “A similar increase can be seen for those aged 16 to 24 years across the >>> UK since June, with between 51.3% and 56.6% reporting having had at
    least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in the week beginning 26 July
    2021,” the statement continued.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The Moderna vaccine was approved in the UK for children as young as 12
    years old just this week, while the Pfizer vaccine was approved for that >>> age group a few weeks ago. Children under 12 are still not eligible for
    any covid-19 vaccine in the UK, just as they aren’t in the U.S. yet either. >>>
    Most adults in the UK were vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine,
    which relies on older vaccine technology that doesn’t include Pfizer and >>> Moderna’s mRNA platform. But that will be fine for British adults in the >>> long run, since a new study has shown that while Pfizer worked better
    than AstraZeneca for a few weeks, Pfizer’s efficacy wanes over time and
    they both work about the same, according to the BBC.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    To be clear, every vaccine approved by the FDA has been shown to be
    effective against covid-19, even the highly contagious delta variant of
    the virus. So if you haven’t gotten vaccinated yet, please make that
    happen as soon as possible. You don’t want to regret going without the
    vaccine, as so many people are learning the hard way around the world.

    The Democrats, the healthcare bureaucrats, and the press lied about the
    efficacy of masks and the probable origin of the pandemic, and they
    blocked posts and deplatformed Republicans for contradicting the CDC and >>> the NIH. No one should ever believe anything just because an expert said >>> so, but even among those who usually give the experts they see in the
    media a certain amount of deference, in other circumstances, why should
    any Republican in their right mind believe what they’re told by the
    Democrats, the health bureaucrats, or the news media at this point?

    They’re all bald-faced liars, and everyone knows it!

    I wonder if Sullum has seen recent polls about the lack of credibility
    the news media suffers from right now. Have you seen the absurd and
    insane things Joe Biden has been saying about what’s happening in
    Afghanistan? He has all the credibility of Baghdad Bob.

    Is Fauci still the head of the NIAID? Isn’t his job to be a source of
    information that people trust? Liars and buffoons can’t make credible
    endorsements, which is why no one on Wall Street hired Bernie Madoff to
    endorse their investment brokerages or financial advice after he was
    exposed as a fraud. Would you hire Harvey Weinstein to write the sexual
    harassment manual for your human resources department? Would you go to
    O.J. Simpson for anger management classes or marriage counseling?
    Listening to the advice of Biden, the CDC, or Fauci on the pandemic, at
    this point, is a bit like that.

    The Democrats, the bureaucrats, and the news media burned through
    whatever credibility they had long ago, and these are the consequences.
    First you convinced the white, blue collar middle class that you hated
    them for being sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, and racist, and then you
    smeared them all as insurrectionists for questioning the election
    results. You lied about the probable origin of the pandemic–and
    prohibited people from talking about it on social media. You’re trying
    to force them to wear masks–even if they’re vaccinated–on the basis of
    questionable interpretations of very little data. And now you wonder why >>> Republicans don’t believe whatever you tell them and wonder why they’re
    reluctant to do as you say?

    The reason the townspeople don’t come running when you cry wolf,
    anymore, is because they’re smart. If you didn’t know you were trashing
    your own credibility every time you lied to them and treated them with
    contempt, that’s probably because you’re stupid. This is like a
    progressive being shocked by the entirely foreseeable and entirely
    foreseen consequences of progressive policies.

    Yes, it turns out that the choices you made have consequences in the
    real world, and one of the consequences of destroying your own
    credibility with TDS, not only over the course of the pandemic but also
    the whole time Trump was in office, means that when it’s over, you have
    no credibility anymore. How’s it feel?

    Ultimately, I don’t know if there is a solution to a whole class of
    Democrat politicians, bureaucrats, and their fans in the news media
    willfully destroying their own credibility. The reason you’re supposed
    to avoid drunk driving is because after you’ve killed an innocent child
    with your choice, it’s too late. You’re supposed to avoid foolish
    choices for fear of the negative consequences before they happen, and
    the negative consequences of selling your credibility short is supposed
    to be a lack of credibility.

    Maybe Democrats, bureaucrats, and their fans in the news media can take
    solace in the realization that future generations will always look back
    at their disgraceful behavior over the last five years as a textbook
    example of what happens when the government, the experts, and the news
    media completely destroy their own credibility. Their monumental
    contempt for average people, their outright lying, and their profound
    stupidity should be remembered forever.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )

    (CNN)Hospitals in parts of the South are running out of oxygen supply as >>> Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations continue soaring, driven by the
    swaths of people who remain unvaccinated and a dangerous coronavirus
    variant that has infected millions of Americans.

    Several hospitals in Florida, South Carolina, Texas and Louisiana are
    struggling with oxygen scarcity. Some are at risk of having to use their >>> reserve supply or risk running out of oxygen imminently, according to
    state health officials and hospital consultants.
    With the continued uptick in Covid-19 cases, there has been more demand
    on the oxygen supply, and hospitals cannot keep up the pace to meet
    those needs, Donna Cross, senior director of facilities and construction >>> at Premier -- a health care performance improvement company -- told CNN. >>> &#39;There is no room to put these bodies,&#39; Alabama health official
    says as Covid-19 deaths climb
    'There is no room to put these bodies,' Alabama health official says as
    Covid-19 deaths climb
    "Normally, an oxygen tank would be about 90% full, and the suppliers
    would let them get down to a refill level of 30-40% left in their tank,
    giving them a three- to five-day cushion of supply," said Cross. "What's >>> happening now is that hospitals are running down to about 10-20%, which
    is a one- to two-day supply on hand, before they're getting backfilled." >>>
    Even when they're getting backfill, it's only a partial supply of about
    50%, Cross said. "It is very critical situation."
    Florida on Saturday had the highest Covid-19 hospitalization rate in the >>> country, with 75 patients per 100,000 residents in hospitals with the
    virus, according to data from federal health officials and Johns Hopkins >>> University. It also reached yet another pandemic high of Covid-19 cases
    Friday, reporting 690.5 new cases per 100,000 people each day from
    August 20 to August 26, state data showed.
    Portable morgues for Central Florida
    Covid-19 deaths have increased so much that the Central Florida Disaster >>> Medical Coalition, a federally funded nonprofit that aids in preparing
    health care system response, has purchased 14 portable morgues with the
    capacity of 12 decedents each, coalition Executive Director Lynne Drawdy >>> said.
    She said that the organization has met with hospitals in the region to
    find out what their needs are. The hospitals relayed that in the last
    week more morgue space was the highest priority because there was not
    adequate capacity -- and that they have seen delays in funeral homes
    picking up those who have died.
    Dr. Ahmed Elhaddad, an intensive care unit doctor in Florida, told CNN's >>> Pamela Brown on Saturday that he's frustrated and "tired of seeing
    people die and suffer because they did not take a vaccine."
    He said the Delta variant is "eating" people's lungs, which eventually
    leads to their collapse.
    "We're seeing the patients die faster with this (Delta) variant," said
    Elhaddad, who is the ICU medical director at Jupiter Medical Center.

    System&#39;s ICU on August 9 in Naples, Florida.

    System's ICU on August 9 in Naples, Florida.
    "This round, we're seeing the younger patients -- 30-, 40-, 50-year-olds >>> -- and they're suffering. They're hungry for oxygen, and they're dying.
    Unfortunately, this round they're dying faster," he said.
    The government's top infectious diseases expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, told >>> CNN's Jake Tapper that the US could see an additional 100,000 deaths >>>from Covid-19 by December, as predicted by a University of Washington model. >>> "What is going on now is both entirely predictable, but entirely
    preventable. And you know we know we have the wherewithal with vaccines
    to turn this around," Fauci, director of the National Institute of
    Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said.
    Elhaddad noted that his ICU does not have a single Covid-19 patient who
    is vaccinated, nor did he see any vaccinated people die from Covid-19.
    "There's no magic medicine. ... The only thing that we're finding is
    that the vaccine is preventing death. It's preventing patients from
    coming to the ICU," Elhaddad said.
    Fauci pointed to the 80 million Americans who are eligible for the
    vaccine, but who are not vaccinated. "We could turn this around and we
    could do it efficiently and quickly if we just get those people
    vaccinated," he said.
    Florida has fully vaccinated 52.4% of its total population, data from
    the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed Saturday.
    Meanwhile, less than 50% of people in South Carolina, Louisiana and
    Texas -- where oxygen supplies are also low -- are fully vaccinated.
    Studies have shown that full vaccination is necessary for optimal
    protection against the Delta variant.
    Nationally, 52.1% of the population was fully vaccinated as of Saturday, >>> CDC data shows.
    Hurricane Ida targeting Louisiana as Covid-19 hospitalizations remain high >>> Louisiana's overall vaccination rate remains among the lowest in the
    nation at 41.2% -- and the state's hospitals are dealing with hundreds

    Some 2,450 people were hospitalized with Covid-19 in Louisiana, Gov.
    John Bel Edwards said Saturday, which is a drop of 20% in the past 10
    days. But it's still the most the state has had since before the current >>> surge in cases, Edwards told CNN's Jim Acosta.
    More than 475 of those patients are on ventilators, according to data >>>from the state department of health.

    'Time is not on our side.' Gulf Coast braces for Sunday arrival of
    Hurricane Ida, potentially a Category 4 storm
    Hurricane Ida made landfall near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, on Sunday as
    a dangerous Category 4 hurricane. Possible injuries from the storm stand >>> to compound the risk of health care facilities being overwhelmed, given
    Covid-19 patients already occupy hospitals at high rates.
    "Evacuating hospitals is not going to be possible because there's
    nowhere to bring those patients to, there's no excess capacity anywhere
    else in the state or outside the state," Edwards said.
    "Then you have people who may be injured as a result of the hurricane
    itself, and so we need to make sure we have some capacity for them," he
    said. "We still have a very, very challenging situation here across the
    state of Louisiana."
    Edwards pointed out that he's worried about lengthy power outages. The
    state has about 10,000 lineworkers ready to go and another 20,000 on
    standby to assist as soon as necessary.
    "Restoring power is going to be critically important in order to keep
    these hospitals up and functioning," he said.
    All of the state's parishes are in the highest risk category for
    coronavirus, with widespread, uncontrolled transmission, and many
    undetected cases, the state health department said.
    'We're headed into a really tough time for young people,' doctor says
    A return to in-person learning has led to thousands of students having
    to quarantine across the US, with Covid-19 cases among children surging
    to levels not seen since winter.
    And hospitalizations of children due to Covid-19 could continue to
    increase as more of them return to classrooms this fall.
    "There is no question that we're headed into a really tough time for
    young people," Dr. Esther Choo told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Saturday.
    US Surgeon General urges parents and officials take these steps to
    protect children from Covid-19

    protect children from Covid-19
    Choo, a professor of emergency medicine at Oregon Health & Science
    University, added that while people had some reassurance last year that
    the virus wouldn't affect children as severely, this year is different.
    "We're going back to school in-person, unmasked across the United
    States. There's a lot of resistance to things like mask mandates and
    vaccinations that would keep our kids safer in schools," she said.
    Notably, children under 12 are not yet eligible to be vaccinated against >>> Covid-19.
    Not all schools in the US have opened yet, but the remaining ones are
    expected to open after Labor Day, which is when Choo said children's
    Covid-19 hospitalizations could increase.
    "We're no doubt going to see more of what we're seeing now, which is
    hospitals just bursting with pediatric admissions," she said, noting
    Covid-19 deaths of children will also become more common.
    Fauci said he supports mandating Covid-19 vaccines for students who are
    eligible, noting, "This is not something new. We have mandates in many
    places in schools, particularly public schools that if in fact you want
    a child to come in, we've done this for decades and decades requiring
    polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis," vaccinations.

    People who do not receive a coronavirus booster shot will eventually be
    denied a so-called green passport, which allows entry into various
    venues, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said on Tuesday.

    “This is simply because, in terms of its effectiveness, the vaccine is
    valid only for a period of five or six months,” Horowitz told Channel 13 >>> television. “After about half a year, you have to get a third dose.
    Otherwise, the vaccine loses its power.”

    “The Green Pass testifies that a person is safe in a certain way,” he
    added. “So the moment we know that the vaccine loses its effectiveness
    after a certain period, there’s no justification for giving a green pass >>> to someone who hasn’t gotten another dose.”

    Nevertheless, he said, the booster will become a requirement for a Green >>> Pass only when the shot is available to everyone aged 12 and older.
    Currently, only people aged 30 and up qualify for the third dose.

    - Advertisment -

    Earlier Tuesday, the Health Ministry approved giving the third shot to
    anyone aged 30 and over who had received the second dose at least five
    months ago. It had previously only been available to people aged 40 and
    up. The move was recommended by a number of expert advisory committees.
    So far, 1,575,898 Israelis have gotten the third dose.

    Record number of Israelis get COVID boosters, serious cases decline
    Israel's 20% unvaccinated now account for half of all serious COVID-19 cases
    Israel hits seven-month high in COVID infections; booster vaccine drive
    expanded to 30 and older
    U.S. donation of COVID-19 vaccines arrives in West Bank and Gaza
    "The doctors who decide this, who advise us, the vaccine committee, are
    going with the method of gradual stages to make it 100 percent safe,"
    Horowitz said on Kan Bet public radio. "I assume that in a very short
    time, it will be available for everyone."

    The decision to lower the age for receiving the booster was based on
    data accumulated from older people, which showed the third shot to be
    both safe and effective, in the hopes that it will lower the rising
    infection rates. More than 80 experts have participated in discussions
    of the booster in recent weeks.

    The U.S. is heading into Labor Day weekend with just over four times as
    many Covid-19 cases and more than twice as many hospitalizations as at
    this time last year — despite having vaccinated 62% of the American
    population with at least one dose.

    The U.S. and the world are nowhere near where health officials hoped,
    and thought, we would be 20 months into the pandemic — and more than
    eight months after vaccines that boasted efficacy rates around 95% were
    rolled out.

    Dr. Scott Gottlieb on the battle over Covid booster shots
    Though the outbreak is significantly worse by most measures than 2020,
    setting the U.S. up for a tough fall season, the delta variant, vaccines >>> and open schools make it hard to predict how the pandemic will unfold,
    doctors and scientists say.

    “There is a lot more uncertainty right now. The dynamic interplay
    between variants and vaccine and particularly people unvaccinated, and
    the sort of game changer of the delta variant leads to a lot of
    uncertainty in terms of what the fall holds,” said Dr. Barbara Taylor,
    an assistant dean and infectious disease specialist at the University of >>> Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised unvaccinated
    Americans against traveling over the holiday weekend, worried the
    festivities could kick off another surge in cases.

    Heading into Labor Day 2020, the U.S. was coming down off a summer surge >>> in which average daily cases peaked around 67,000 per day in July to an
    average of just over 41,000 new cases per day the week before Labor Day, >>> data compiled by Johns Hopkins University shows. New cases this week
    have climbed to their highest point since January, averaging 166,000 per >>> day over the last seven days.

    New cases, however, are rising at a substantially slower pace than in
    recent weeks, and many scientists predict they will soon start to
    decline. New cases rose by 7% over the last week, almost a third of the
    seven-day jump of 26% just three weeks ago, according to the data.

    “It is true that cases, hospitalizations and deaths are at higher levels >>> than they were last Labor Day, especially for mostly Southern states,”
    said Lawrence Gostin, director of the World Health Organization’s
    Collaborating Center on National and Global Health Law. “This was highly >>> surprising because we now have highly effective vaccines.”

    However, the effectiveness of all three vaccines cleared for use in the
    U.S. — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — has fallen since they
    were first introduced. Scientists have discovered that the protection
    wanes over time. The highly contagious delta variant is also a game
    changer. It spreads more easily and quickly than other variants,
    according to the CDC, infecting both unvaccinated and vaccinated people. >>>

    The viral load in the nasal cavity is so high, estimated at 1,000 times
    that of other strains, that scientists in Australia say they traced a
    case where a man contracted it with just 5 to 10 seconds of exposure.
    The small fraction of fully vaccinated people who get Covid, even an
    asymptomatic case, are just as capable of spreading it as unvaccinated
    people, officials have warned. The delta variant now accounts for 99% of >>> all new sequenced cases in the U.S.

    “The delta variant, as we’ve seen with the evolution of Covid-19 over
    the past year and a half, continues to throw us curves, and I think the
    best advice is to be cautious and careful,” Dr. Nusheen Ameenuddin, a
    community pediatrician at the Mayo Clinic, said in an interview.

    The good news is that delta appears to be running its course in the
    U.S., running out of new people to infect as vaccination rates rise and
    others gain natural immunity after recovering from the virus, doctors
    and scientists say.

    New hospital admissions have finally started to turn after weeks of a
    steady rise, with the seven-day average of daily admissions down 1.7%
    over the past week, CDC data shows. Still, more than 100,000 Americans
    are currently hospitalized, compared with about 41,000 during the same
    week a year ago, according to the Department of Health and Human
    Services, in line with levels seen in late January of this year.

    The big question is: How long does immunity last? Studies show that the
    vaccines start to wane in effectiveness about two months after the
    second shot and then really decline in protection five to eight months
    following full vaccination, U.S. officials say.

    “We may see periodic waves of this until there is sufficient
    community-level protection, and hopefully that comes via vaccination
    rather than recovery from natural infection,” said infectious diseases
    physician Dr. Isaac Bogoch at the University of Toronto. “I know we all
    want the pandemic to be over, but it’s not. We are closer to the end in
    countries with access to vaccinations, but it’s not over.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
    best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda, Mu &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
    COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    The ACLU, Prior to COVID, Denounced Mandates and Coercive Measures to
    Fight Pandemics
    In a New York Times op-ed this week, the group completely reversed its
    views, arguing vaccine mandates help civil liberties and bodily autonomy >>> "is not absolute."

    Protest for medical freedom and health choice in Minnesota, Stop the
    mandates, Minnesota citizens demand informed consent and transparency in >>> matters of health choice and medical freedom without coercion. (Photo
    by: Michael Siluk/UCG/Universal Images Group via Getty Images)
    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) surprised even many of its
    harshest critics this week when it strongly defended coercive programs
    and other mandates from the state in the name of fighting COVID. “Far >>>from compromising them, vaccine mandates actually further civil
    liberties,” its Twitter account announced, adding that “vaccine
    requirements also safeguard those whose work involves regular exposure
    to the public."

    If you were surprised to see the ACLU heralding the civil liberties
    imperatives of "vaccine mandates” and "vaccine requirements” — whereby
    the government coerces adults to inject medicine into their own bodies
    that they do not want — the New York Times op-ed which the group
    promoted, written by two of its senior lawyers, was even more extreme.
    The article begins with this rhetorical question: “Do vaccine mandates
    violate civil liberties?” Noting that "some who have refused vaccination >>> claim as much,” the ACLU lawyers say: “we disagree.” The op-ed then
    examines various civil liberties objections to mandates and state
    coercion — little things like, you know, bodily autonomy and freedom to
    choose — and the ACLU officials then invoke one authoritarian cliche
    after the next (“these rights are not absolute") to sweep aside such
    civil liberties concerns:

    [W]hen it comes to Covid-19, all considerations point in the same
    direction. . . . In fact, far from compromising civil liberties, vaccine >>> mandates actually further civil liberties. . . . .

    [Many claim that] vaccines are a justifiable intrusion on autonomy and
    bodily integrity. That may sound ominous, because we all have the
    fundamental right to bodily integrity and to make our own health care
    decisions. But these rights are not absolute. They do not include the
    right to inflict harm on others. . . . While vaccine mandates are not
    always permissible, they rarely run afoul of civil liberties when they
    involve highly infectious and devastating diseases like Covid-19. . . .

    While limited exceptions are necessary, most people can be required to
    be vaccinated. . . . . Where a vaccine is not medically contraindicated, >>> however, avoiding a deadly threat to the public health typically
    outweighs personal autonomy and individual freedom.

    The op-ed sounds like it was written by an NSA official justifying the
    need for mass surveillance (yes, fine, your privacy is important but it
    is not absolute; your privacy rights are outweighed by public safety; we >>> are spying on you for your own good). And the op-ed appropriately ends
    with this perfect Orwellian flourish: “We care deeply about civil
    liberties and civil rights for all — which is precisely why we support
    vaccine mandates.”

    What makes the ACLU's position so remarkable — besides the inherent
    shock of a civil liberties organization championing state mandates
    overriding individual choice — is that, very recently, the same group
    warned of the grave dangers of the very mindset it is now pushing. In
    2008, the ACLU published a comprehensive report on pandemics which had
    one primary purpose: to denounce as dangerous and unnecessary attempts
    by the state to mandate, coerce, and control in the name of protecting
    the public from pandemics.

    The title of the ACLU report, resurfaced by David Shane, reveals its
    primary point: "Pandemic Preparedness: The Need for a Public Health –
    Not a Law Enforcement/National Security – Approach.” To read this report >>> is to feel that one is reading the anti-ACLU — or at least the actual
    ACLU prior to its Trump-era transformation. From start to finish, it
    reads as a warning of the perils of precisely the mindset which today's
    ACLU is now advocating for COVID.

    In 2008, the group explained its purpose this way: “the following report >>> examines the relationship between civil liberties and public health in
    contemporary U.S. pandemic planning and makes a series of
    recommendations for developing a more effective, civil
    liberties-friendly approach.” Its key warning: “Not all public health
    interventions have been benign or beneficial, however. Too often, fears
    aroused by disease and epidemics have encouraged abuses of state power.
    Atrocities, large and small, have been committed in the name of
    protecting the public’s health.”


    2008 report of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
    The immediate impetus for the ACLU's 2008 report was two-fold: 1) the
    2008 emergence of the avian bird flu pandemic, which produced highly
    alarmist and ultimately false headlines around the world about millions
    dying; and 2) new pandemic legislation and regulatory frameworks,
    enacted in the wake of 9/11, premised on the view, as the ACLU put it,
    "that every outbreak of disease could be the beginning of some horrific
    epidemic, requiring the suspension of civil liberties.”

    The ACLU issued its 2008 report to warn that the worst possible way to
    respond to a deadly pandemic was through coercion and mandates. Instead, >>> the group argued — as one would expect from a civil liberties
    organization — persuasion and voluntary compliance were both more
    effective and less likely to erode core liberties. As they put it:

    The lessons from history should be kept in mind whenever we are told by
    government officials that “tough,” liberty-limiting actions are needed
    to protect us from dangerous diseases. Specifically: coercion and brute
    force are rarely necessary. In fact they are generally
    counterproductive—they gratuitously breed public distrust and encourage
    the people who are most in need of care to evade public health
    authorities. On the other hand, effective, preventive strategies that
    rely on voluntary participation do work.

    The key dichotomy emphasized by the 2008 version of the ACLU was the
    difference between constructive and persuasive messaging regarding
    public health versus the use of law enforcement and forced mandates.
    Starting with the report's title (“The Need for a Public Health – Not a
    Law Enforcement/National Security – Approach”) through every section,
    the ACLU urges that mandates and coercion be dispensed with in favor of
    voluntary compliance and educational messages:

    Government agencies have an essential role to play in helping to prevent >>> and mitigate epidemics. Unfortunately, in recent years, our government’s >>> approach to preparing the nation for a possible influenza pandemic has
    been highly misguided. Too often, policymakers are resorting to law
    enforcement and national security-oriented measures that not only
    suppress individual rights unnecessarily, but have proven to be
    ineffective in stopping the spread of disease and saving lives . . . .

    This law enforcement/national security strategy shifts the focus of
    preparedness from preventing and mitigating an emergency to punishing
    people who fail to follow orders and stay healthy.

    Much of the report is devoted to an examination of how the U.S.
    government has historically treated pandemics. As it reviews each
    pandemic — including horrifically lethal ones such as the plague and
    smallpox — the ACLU concludes over and over that American health
    authorities excessively relied on coercion rather than education and
    persuasion, fueled by media-aided fear porn and alarmist narratives:

    Lessons from History: American history contains vivid reminders that
    grafting the values of law enforcement and national security onto public >>> health is both ineffective and dangerous. Too often, fears aroused by
    disease and epidemics have justified abuses of state power. Highly
    discriminatory and forcible vaccination and quarantine measures adopted
    in response to outbreaks of the plague and smallpox over the past
    century have consistently accelerated rather than slowed the spread of
    disease, while fomenting public distrust and, in some cases, riots.

    Amazingly, the model that the ACLU identifies as the one that must be
    avoided is precisely the one that it is now urging be used for COVID.
    Compare, for instance, the ACLU's defense of coercive mandates in its
    New York Times op-ed this week (vaccine mandates “rarely run afoul of
    civil liberties”) with this ringing endorsement of the need to preserve
    freedom of choice in its 2008 report:

    This model assumes that we must “trade liberty for security.” As a
    result, instead of helping individuals and communities through education >>> and provision of health care, today’s pandemic prevention focuses on
    taking aggressive, coercive actions against those who are sick. People,
    rather than the disease, become the enemy.

    What most worried the 2008 version of the ACLU was that authoritarian
    power vested in the hands of public health officials in the form of
    mandates and coercion will become permanent given that we will always
    live with such threats and endless pandemics. That was why, urged that
    iteration of the ACLU, we must opt for an approach that relies on
    education programs and voluntary compliance rather than state mandates.

    “The law enforcement approach to public health offers a rationale for
    the endless suspension of civil liberties,” they explained. Using
    post-9/11 expansions of state power as its framework, the group
    explained that “the ‘Global War on Terror' may go on for a generation,
    but the war on disease will continue until the end of the human race.
    There will always be a new disease, always the threat of a new pandemic. >>> If that fear justifies the suspension of liberties and the institution
    of an emergency state, then freedom and the rule of law will be
    permanently suspended.”

    The ACLU's New York Times op-ed this week repeatedly stressed that
    coercive mandates are justified whenever “the disease is highly
    transmissible, serious and lethal.” But its 2008 report argued exactly
    the opposite. The report was critical of forced vaccinations and other
    mandates in prior outbreaks of smallpox — certainly a highly contagious
    and lethal disease — but then argued that when the disease reappeared in >>> the late 1940s, New York City handled it much better by offering
    voluntary vaccines and education programs rather than coercive measures: >>>
    In contrast, New York City relied on a different approach in 1947, one
    that viewed the public as the client rather than the enemy of public
    health. When smallpox reappeared in the city after a long absence, the
    city educated the public about the problem and instituted a massive
    voluntary vaccination campaign. Not surprisingly, no coercion was
    needed. Provided with information about the need for and benefits of
    vaccination, and reassurance that the city was helping rather than
    attacking them, the citizens of the New York turned out en masse for one >>> of the world’s largest voluntary vaccination campaigns. The campaign was >>> successful, and the epidemic was quashed before it had a chance to
    spread broadly in the city or beyond.

    In the scheme of repressive measures that worried the 2008 ACLU,
    “compulsory isolation and quarantine are among the most coercive
    non-pharmaceutical interventions that may be employed during a
    pandemic.” They minced no words about such policies: “civil liberties
    concerns arise when these interventions are imposed by law.”

    The ACLU did not merely warn with words of the dangers of excessive
    pandemic coercion. They also legally represented at least one client who >>> they viewed as the victim of public health hysteria and tyranny. In
    2006, “a 27-year-old tuberculosis patient named Robert Daniels was
    involuntarily quarantined in Phoenix, Arizona for disobeying an order by >>> Maricopa County health officials to wear a face mask in public at all
    times.” Even once Daniels was released and it turned out he had a less
    severe case of TB than originally assumed, “Sheriff Joe Arpaio publicly
    threatened him with prosecution for the pre-quarantine events.”

    The ACLU's lesson from that case, and similar ones it had handled, was
    clear: these cases “are cautionary tales that illustrate the
    counterproductive nature of a punitive, law enforcement approach to
    preventing the spread of disease.” Most important of all, said the civil >>> liberties group, coercive steps — such as mandates and quarantines — not >>> only endanger civil liberties but are less effective in improving the
    public health, because they convert the public from cooperative allies
    into enemies that must be controlled and punished:

    These efforts require working with rather than against communities,
    providing communities with as healthy an environment as possible, health >>> care if they need it, and the means to help themselves and their
    neighbors. Most importantly, to protect public health, public health
    policies must aim to help, rather than to suppress, the public.

    A separate ACLU report from 2015, issued during the ebola epidemic,
    contained a similar message. It warned “against politically motivated
    and scientifically unwarranted quarantines, which the report found
    violated individuals’ rights and hampered efforts to end the outbreak.”
    Hysteria over ebola became so intense that the ACLU “found that people
    were illegally deprived of their right to due process under the 14th
    Amendment because the quarantines and movement restrictions were not
    scientifically justified.”

    While both reports acknowledge that more restrictive measures can be
    justified under extreme circumstances, the crux of each is that
    voluntary compliance is better than coercion, that state mandates
    typically fail, and that the far greater danger is vesting too much
    power in the hands of the state, which it will never relinquish given
    the permanence of pandemics.

    How the ACLU fell from those traditional and vital civil liberties
    positions to urging this week in The New York Times that “far from
    compromising civil liberties, vaccine mandates actually further civil
    liberties,” is anyone's guess. But what is beyond doubt is that it is a
    far fall indeed. And most of all, hearing the ACLU invoke the standard
    rationale of authoritarians — we all have the fundamental right to
    bodily integrity and to make our own health care decisions, but these
    rights are not absolute — is nothing short of jarring.

    Update, Sept. 7, 2021, 6:58 p.m.: Shortly after publication of this
    article, a former ACLU lawyer, Margaret Winter, noted in response: “It
    was NOT just ‘prior to covid’ that ACLU denounced vaccine mandates: Read >>> ACLU's 2020 position paper passionately and correctly arguing that
    vaccine mandates ‘exacerbate racial disparities and harm the civil
    liberties of all.’” Winter was referencing this ACLU report, from May of >>> 2020, that warned of the serious dangers of “immunity passports," under
    which citizens who already got COVID and thus had immunity would enjoy
    rights not available to others:

    We at the ACLU have serious concerns about the adoption of any such
    proposal, because of its potential to harm public health, incentivize
    economically-vulnerable people to risk their health by contracting
    COVID-19, exacerbate racial and economic disparities, and lead to a new
    health surveillance infrastructure that endangers privacy rights. . . .
    This division would likely worsen existing racial, disability, and
    economic disparities in America and lead people struggling to afford
    basic necessities to deliberately risk their health.

    While such a scheme is different in degree from vaccine passports let
    alone vaccine mandates — which the ACLU is now championing — its
    rationale for opposing such a system is fully applicable: “there are
    serious civil liberties and civil rights harms from making workplace
    decisions on that basis,” adding: “any immunity passport system
    endangers privacy rights by creating a new surveillance infrastructure
    to collect health data.”

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
    best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda, Mu &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current

    The Great Reboot
    COVID-19 disruption causing many deaths from TB, AIDS in poorest

    GENEVA, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of people will die of
    tuberculosis left untreated because of disruption to healthcare systems
    in poor countries caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a global aid fund said. >>>
    In a few of the world's poorest countries, excess deaths from AIDS and
    tuberculosis (TB) could even exceed those from the coronavirus itself,
    said the head of the Geneva-based aid body, known as the Global Fund.

    The Fund's annual report for 2020, released on Wednesday, showed that
    the number of people treated for drug-resistant tuberculosis in
    countries where it operates fell by 19%. A decline of 11% was reported
    in HIV prevention programmes and services.

    "Essentially, about a million people less were treated for TB in 2020
    than in 2019 and I'm afraid that will inevitably mean that hundreds of
    thousands of people will die," Executive Director Peter Sands told Reuters. >>>
    While precise death tolls are as yet unknown, Sands said that for some
    poor countries, such as parts of the Sahel region in Africa, excess
    deaths from the setback in the fight against diseases such as TB or AIDS >>> might prove higher than from COVID-19 itself.

    The Geneva-based Global Fund is an alliance of governments, civil
    society and private sector partners investing more than $4 billion per
    year to fight tuberculosis, malaria and AIDS. The United States is its
    top donor.

    Sands said services were affected by COVID-19 lockdowns while clinics,
    staff and diagnostics normally used for TB were instead deployed for
    COVID-19 in countries such as India and across Africa. He added that he
    expected further disruptions this year due to the Delta variant.

    He said the decline in treatment for other diseases "underscores the
    need to look at the total impact of COVID-19 and measure success in
    combating it not just by the reduction in deaths due to COVID-19 itself
    but to the knock on impact".

    Malaria proved to be an exception to the trend in 2020, and prevention
    activities remained stable or increased compared to 2019, the Global
    Fund said.

    If COVID Is Forever, Is This What You Want the Rest of Your Life to Look >>> Like?

    By PHILIP KLEIN September 9, 2021 6:30 AM

    People making sacrifices for a few weeks is one thing. But if those
    sacrifices are indefinitely extended, it*s a much different debate. Most >>> people have at some point in their lives been asked to entertain a
    version of the cheesy question, *If you knew you had one day to live,
    what would you do?* It*s often posed as a playful game or essay topic or >>> used by self-help gurus to prod people into trying to get a deeper sense >>> of their priorities. But it*s time for everybody to start asking
    themselves a different question: If COVID-19 will be here forever, is
    this what you want the rest of your life to look like? In this case,
    it*s not an idle or theoretical exercise. It will be central to how we
    choose to live and function as a society for years or even decades to come. >>>
    Ever since the onset of COVID-19, we have more or less been living under >>> an illusion. That illusion was that it would reach some sort of natural
    endpoint * a point at which the pandemic would be declared *over,* and
    we could all more or less go back to normal. The original promise of
    taking *15 days to slow the spread* or six weeks to *flatten the curve*
    has long since been reduced to a punchline.

    In March of 2020, the outside estimates were that this coronavirus
    period would come to an end when safe and effective vaccines became
    widely available. Even the infamous Imperial College London report,
    viewed as draconian at the time for its estimate of up to 2.2 million
    deaths in the U.S. absent sustained intervention, predicted that its
    mitigation strategies *will need to be maintained until a vaccine
    becomes available.* Yet vaccines have been available for anybody who
    wants one for nearly six months, and our leaders have ignored the
    obvious off-ramp. The CDC backtracked on guidance and said that
    vaccinated people must wear masks in public, and many people and
    jurisdictions have listened. For example, Montgomery County, Md., has an >>> extraordinarily high vaccination rate * with 96 percent of the eligible
    over-twelve population having received at least one dose and 87 percent
    of them being fully vaccinated. By its own metrics, the county has *low
    utilization* of hospital beds. Yet the county requires masks indoors *
    including in schools. In Oregon, vaccinated people are required to wear
    masks even outdoors. And it isn*t just liberal enclaves. A new
    Economist/YouGov poll found that eight in ten Americans report having
    worn a mask in the past week at least *some of the time* when outside
    their homes, with 58 percent masking *always* or *most of the time.* If
    masking has remained so widespread among adults months after vaccines
    became widely available, why will it end in schools after vaccines
    become available for children?

    When operating under the assumption that there is a time limit on
    interventions, it*s much easier to accept various disruptions and
    inconveniences. While there have been ferocious debates over whether
    various mitigation strategies have ever been necessary, we should at
    least be able to agree that the debate changes the longer such
    restrictions are required. People making sacrifices for a few weeks, or
    even a year, under the argument that doing so saves lives is one thing.
    But if those sacrifices are indefinitely extended, it*s a much different >>> debate.

    There are many Americans who willingly locked themselves down and who
    still favor some restrictions. But what if this were to drag on for five >>> years? Ten years? Twenty years? Do you want your children to be forced
    to wear masks throughout their childhoods? Do you want to bail on
    weddings if some guests may be unvaccinated? Skip future funerals? Ditch >>> Thanksgiving when there*s a winter surge? Keep grandparents away from
    their grandkids whenever there*s a new variant spreading? Are you never
    going to see a movie in a theater again?

    These are not wild scenarios. The Delta variant has led to surges
    throughout the world months after vaccines became widely available.
    Despite being a model of mass vaccination, Israel has been dealing with
    a significant Delta spike. To be clear, vaccines still appear to be
    quite effective at significantly reducing the risk of hospitalization
    and death. But if the virus continues to adapt and people need to get
    booster shots every six months or so, it seems there*s a good chance
    that the coronavirus will continue to spread for a very long time. So
    the question is how we, as individuals, and society as a whole, should
    adapt to this reality. Instead of thinking in terms of policies that may >>> be tolerable for a very short period of time, it*s time to consider what >>> would happen if such policies had to continue forever.

    Whatever arguments were made to justify interventions early on in the
    pandemic, post-vaccine, we are in a much different universe. There is a
    negligible statistical difference in the likelihood of severe health
    consequences between vaccinated people who go about their business
    without taking extra precautions, and those who take additional
    precautions. Yet having to observe various protocols in perpetuity
    translates into a reduced quality of life. Put another way, the sort of
    question we need to start asking ourselves is not whether we can
    tolerate masking for one trip to the grocery store, but whether we want
    to live in a society in which we can never again go shopping without a mask.

    The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
    the U.S. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
    among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
    asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
    15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
    doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
    best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
    mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda, Mu &
    Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
    COVID vaccines no longer effective.

    Indeed, I am wonderfully hungry ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
    and hope you, Michael, also have a healthy appetite too.

    So how are you ?

    I am wonderfully hungry!
