From Deadhead to bitching about liberals. What would Jerry say?*I have no interest if providing anything to our whacked nut-job of a governor, Gov. Nuisance, with his lack of scientific data, and, Rules for Thee, But Not For Me perspective. Too many liberal whacks with too much power screwing the economy [/political comment here]
Which is to repeat ,again, please keep politics out of this thread. Left, right, whatever, there's plenty of other places to go sow that toxic bullshit. We're here as friends to chat about this prevalent annoyance, nobody's mind about anything is going to or needs to change from it.
Announced yesterday was an increase in cases again. Heading the wrong way. Six days after my quoted post above, variants are now 19% of new cases compared with 11% previously. Most are the British variant. The first detection of the Brazilian variant was noted March 14th, resulting from travel. By the 24th we now have our first two cases of community spread Brazilian.In my neck of the woods the limited supply of AstraZeneca that was released went as far as individuals with the birth year just prior to mine. No disappointment, the amount of the supply pretty much guaranteed it wouldn't make it far enough.
Even so, the prospect of perhaps getting it sometime in May is a lot better than September which was an earlier estimate. Once supply increases I believe there are plans for mass immunization sites and rolling it out to Medical clinics. The sooner the better, as apparently the variants are making up something like 11% of new cases now.
Stop trolling this thread. We've managed to keep it going a year and all it takes is one person being an asshole to ruin it. And that happens to be the one rule we have here.Well, somehwat ironically, we were just coming off of the *China Flu pandemic in 1972. There are still elements of that late 60's China flu pandemic in current flu virii.
*sorry, but that is/was the official name of it.
