Meanwhile, Norwegian health authorities make vaccination available for 5-11 year olds, but ask parents to consider not vaccinating as children doesn’t get very ill, and current vaccines doesn’t stop transmission. They say this group is better protected by getting Omicron. I don’t know what to think ...Jump to post
There isn’t two sides to it. The democrats represent pretty much the entire political spectrum from left to right within most democratic countries.

Luckily Brazil is very well vaccinated, haven’t quite followed India closely. In my country we have seen levels of infection at a level far, far above earlier in the pandemic.

Those issues are part if the same Phenomenon, and the guilt lies squarely and surely on the far right wing ie. the republicans. That is saying vaccine misinformation is causing that.

Our health authority (FHI) has said today that they don’t think any kind of close down will be able to stop Omicron, and that they aren’t seeing a big wave of hospitalization amongst the vaccinated. 90%+ of those over 65+ are booster vaccinated, 95% over 75. Their argument for restriction over the l...Jump to post
This is very precisely put. What gets me is that I do not see or understand the motivation. Why do the GOP want to remove democracy? No one gets a better life.

The whole family, including myself have Covid at the moment. The amount of false negatives from a variety of self-tests lasting well into symptomatic disease are astounding.

No one says to trust your instinct about this, Braybuddy. No one, if anything research suggests the exact opposite.

There is nothing wrong with nuclear, and we should get as much possible of it running as soon as possible.

First of all, population growth is pretty much stabilized. Bringing people out of poverty and being given some education makes sure of that. (Don’t know about Texas, but you know).

Covid kills millions.
Covid, even before Omicron, is so much more transmissable that the measures put in place to limit the spread totally stopped the spread of influenza last year.
