They're doing this because anti-vaxxers are claiming they've been vaccinated to get out of wearing masks.
 
2021-07-27 9:08:49 PM  
Nope.  Have the CDC reccomend the military vaccinate the anti vaxxers by force.  If the CDC can put a moritium on evictions, they can get the military to give people an enny teeny itsy bitsy small little poke.  And even if the CDC doesnt have that power it will take years of lawsuits to find out.  By that time corona will be solved by the forced vaccines.

Problem solved.

I think it has less to do with vaccinated people being in danger of the cirus and everything to do with anti vaxxers lying about being vaccinated in order to not have to wear a mask.

"CDC updates guidance, recommends vaccinated people wear masks indoors in certain areas"

like, other than on my face? i'm confused
 
2021-07-27 9:21:41 PM  
Funny that I live in the most populous and most densely populated county in my state, yet we're "moderate," while most of the other counties are at a higher risk.

Vaccines work, even if they're not perfect.
 
2021-07-27 9:23:08 PM  
Yeah, good luck putting that toothpaste back in the tube, CDC. The only people who will voluntarily mask up again are the same ones who are already vaccinated.

winedrinkingman: I think it has less to do with vaccinated people being in danger of the cirus and everything to do with anti vaxxers lying about being vaccinated in order to not have to wear a mask.


Vaccinated people are getting pretty much only the delta variant. The delta variant has pretty much completely taken over all the other variants. The two dose vaccines is at least 80% effective against the virus. Some people that are vaccinated that get covid are experiencing symptoms, because of how bad the delta variant is. Until there is a booster, it is best for everyone to be masked, and probably start forcing the dumbasses to get vaccinated. Herd immunity across the world is only going to stop this. I would not be surprised if another more deadly variant comes, because anti mask and anti mask assholes.

Seriously people, you want this pandemic to end, wear a farking mask and get vaccinated. The more people get sick with this virus, the more chance the virus is going to mutate into something more deadly.

Ben Shapiro should mask all the time. A locking iron mask that he doesn't have the key to.
 
2021-07-27 9:38:54 PM  
There have been several threads covering these new recommendations, but I'm ok with them. They boil down to - if you are in an area with a lot of covid (those within the orange or above aka substantial spread) or in a place where a large number of people can't be vaccinated or haven't been vaccinated yet (K-12 schools), wear a mask even if you are vaccinated, especially indoors.

South Dakota's numbers are beginning to rise, but it's hard to tell because we release them once a week.

We're also not doing much sequencing testing, so we announce each week that there's almost no Delta variant and then add an asterisk hidden somewhere that says you can't trust that result.
 
2021-07-27 9:49:10 PM  
The vaccines are very good at stopping serious illness from the Indian variant (delta) but are only marginally effective at stopping transmission.

This isn't going to get much better until there are new vaccines that target delta and there are large-scale vaccine mandates.

RagnarD: [Fark user image 425x612]


The CDC's pseudo-scientific nonsense hasn't been ever changing, it's been pretty consistent.  The more pressure they get put under, the more nonsense they recommend, not because it works but "out of an abundance of caution" (and a need to look like they are doing something productive).  The tragedy in this is that we now have vaccines that work extremely well, and all the time they waste telling people to mask up or wash their hands or stand 6 feet apart distracts from the one important message: get vaccinated.  Either get vaccinated or get sick - period.  Quit leading people to believe that rituals like singing happy birthday twice while rinsing with hand sanitizer is some sort of alternative to getting your shots.

Warp speed booster shots then.

AND have the military force the shots in the antivaxxers.

Got in a mask argument today, and I upset someone by telling them there are people the world would be better off without. But the way we all point the finger at the other, I'm thinking that's all of us.

I think the antivaxxers want to die, too, though they may not admit to themselves or others. I know two people who refused to get vaxxed--one, my former roommate and coworker of 10 years, a Japanese expat overly concerned with Purity of Fluids, EMFs and whatnot--moved out this spring. When she was still living here, I'd come down to the kitchen and she'd be walking around with some electrodes taped to her forehead, everything wired to some magic detox box that ran on a 9 volt battery.  She lived on sunflower seeds, black coffee (both organic) and purified water. She nursed her mother thru dying of breast cancer in a hospital in Fukushima right after the earthquake and nuclear accident.

When I got the vaccine right away in February, she got pissed off and gave her 30 days notice to move. She works in health care, as I do, and wasn't too happy when I told her it was unlikely she'd have a job for long if she didn't get vaxxed, never mind the dying part.  And, oh, she was adamant only fat people (i.e, Americans) were getting sick and dying with COVID. Her superior quack health practices and eating disorders would save her.

The other is a friend of some 20 years, Black, in his late 50s, born again Christian, and a Trumper. Not a bad guy at all, but there's no talking to him about it. I didn't ask why, but I told him I thought it was a dumb choice. Haven't seen him since this spring, as well.

My Trumper family all got the vaccine. They are elsewhere in the country, I might join them if things fall apart. The timing is all...

...I think some people are tired, stuck in a mental loop that in no way protects them, and death quite frankly would be a boon for them, a release. I saw that in my own mother as she was dying of cancer she didn't treat. I'm not that tired, yet, but when you see the general way things are going, I can understand wanting to check out early, and if you're particularly bitter, maybe take some others with you on the way.  Seriously, if it ends up decimating humanity in the original Latin 10% sense--I don't think I have the joie de vivre to Mad Max it out. I certainly don't have the weaponry.

So I'm licking my finger and sticking it in the breeze. A major earthquake here would just be delicious. I'm close to the cold, cold bay, living on landfill that will liquefact nicely. People who've survived drowning says there's a nice point after all the thrashing, horror, and pain where you just give up and float off blissfully. I think about that old couple who they found crushed to death  together in their bed down at the Florida condo collapse--their kids said one did not want to die before the other. I bet they felt the building shake and were like "fark it, that'll do."

Hear me out, okay?

Cordyceps is a fungus that attacks insect hosts and controls their mind, making them seek out the conditions that would be best for the fungus's growth, right down to the exact height off the ground, up until the fungus completely replaces the host tissue.

Toxoplasma gondii works in a similar way: the parasite wants to be inside of a cat, but it starts its life cycle in a rat, so it reverses the rat's natural aversion to the scent of cats and makes them actively seek out cats. Cat eats rat, cat gets parasite. (There are theories that this parasite gets in people and gives us "cat ladies").

What if the plague rats are infected and asymptomatic? They think the virus is a hoax so they're not gonna go get tested whilst healthy or anything and even if they did, what if they're infected on some subtle level that we don't yet understand? Perhaps the infection is confined to their brain, and yes, controlling their farking minds. Making them spread not the virus, but the gospel of the virus. Advocating against all mitigation efforts. Encouraging people to gather in large groups unmasked. All manner of farkery.

A sentient farking mind control virus.
