China, where the coronavirus first emerged last year, quickly got the epidemic under control and has had very few cases over the past 12 months.

According to China.

Yeah it is hard to believe in what China says, but they want to keep their people alive. They need every worker they can get, and hope they start breeding again. Their population problem is nuts.

I went to get my hair cut, the first time since the pandemic started. There was not a lot of people their, but all the hair dressers were not wearing masks. I hope they were vaccinated. Only one lady was wearing a mask besides my mom and I. We are both vaccinated, but I am not risking it. There are way to many stupid people walking around maskless.

They also don't allow any of the anti-mask type nonsense. Their lockdowns are hard and fast and infected people are blamed for not doing the right thing.  If someone gets C19 they are very likely to hide away until they are better without contacting anyone since if they pass it on and get reported, there is all sorts of bad stuff happening to them and their way of life ends. When they decide they need to lock down, they send the police out to shut down an area.  They let people in but no one goes out and there is no warning about lockdowns unlike most countries that like to announce there is going to a lockdown starting in a few days to increase the spread.

Seriously, this is just NOT the case.

Masks are more effective at filtering outbound particles than inbound ones, but they do not by any means only provide one way protection.

In any case, for an even halfway decent mask, the shortfall is the fit, not how good the material is at filtering. All masks have zero percent effectiveness at filtering air that bypasses them. That's why there's dozens of different shapes of N95, and why N95s reduce actual measured particle inhalation by around 98-99%, whereas even the best multilayer cloth masks, with a second layer holding them tight, achieve "only" 90% effectiveness. Unfitted KN95s will actually be better against inhalation since the negative pressure tends to seal them around the mouth.

They warned everyone that Wuhan was to be locked down.  5 million fled.

Lockdowns.  Forced testing.  Isolation.  These are the necessary evils of pandemic control.  I have hours of footage from the opening days of the outbreak in Wuhan.  It took quite a while for things to get violent. I have two separate videos of security forces breaking the necks of civilians that resisted detention.  I'm assuming they were posted to social media by the security forces themselves to let people know they weren't farking around.  But before that started, security forces were generally pretty polite.  I have videos of them pleading with people to behave.  I got the feeling that there was a distinct hierarchy as follows: localized representatives of the CCP, local authority security forces, and neck breaking goons.  Disobeying one got the next in the series called on you.

The leading photo just seems a little ridiculously incongruous. The nurses and technicians are in head to toe bunny suits, but the 500 or so people actually being tested are packed ass to elbows.  Seems like a good way to actually spread the disease around. Like, yep, person 237 popped hot, you're all going into quarantine now.

It's a lot better, over time.

The "Spanish" Flu was from ...kentucky or thereabouts, IIRC  Definitely not from spain. But spain was the only western nation not involved in a genocidal murder orgy over at the somme so they were the only nation whose journalists weren't being censored. 100 years later, people think it started there.

Delta may have started in india, but a few months or years from now, people won't remember or care as much, and that fact will pass into academia.  Cletus and Karen won't still be harassing Indians about it in 2031 like all the Sinophobic people attacking asians over covid.

It does both, but it is more effective of helping you not spread the virus.

A face mask provides protection to those around you, as well as yourself. Face masks act as barriers for respiratory droplets. Whether you're coughing and the droplets catch in the inside of your own mask, or if you're near to someone else coughing and their droplets hit the outside of your mask - it protects both people.

Also notice how neutralization [for a single Pzfizer dose]* is much weaker in the elderly-but #B16172 #DeltaVariant is so bad that the neutralization in young adults (~20s) for Delta is even lower than neutralization in the elderly against the old strain! With Delta, you start like an 60-70 year old!

That's pretty bad...

The Pfizer vaccine was found to be 88% effective at stopping symptomatic disease from the Indian variant two weeks after the second dose, compared with 93% effectiveness against the Kent variant.

Those who wish may lock themselves in their homes and mask up for the rest of their miserable lives.  I'm inclined to live my life as best...at least until those who see China as a role model succeed in promoting another two week lockdown that lasts another two years.

That 50% is going to happen and it scares them shiatless. A decline like that means economic dominance and ability to throw 20,000 untrained people at any problem is severely curtailed. 1/3 of that population will be retired or should be. Pollution takes its toll on physical and mental health even if cleaned up after a while. Stress wears you down. They won't be able to be China as we know it unless they adapt more Western approaches to education and critical thinking and innovation, which are not on the CCP's to do list.

They'll peak in a decade, then start fading, unless they keep adding more people. But the CCP currently is very much anti-Mao in their approach, trying to force adoption of Han culture and language throughout China, something that has never really been pushed before outside of Imperial testing on Taoist matters for civil employees. And that was by its nature very targeted.

China is headed for a Bad Time. They are ramping up aggression against others to focus the fury of the people against external enemies. That will mean war against their neighbors. Hence their current military buildup.
