You were warned.

You had a chance to save yourselves.

appears to spread as easily as chickenpox

Chickenpox has an R0 of 10-12.

Holy f*ck.

Let's see, Sturgis starts next Friday, schools start to open after that. I'm sure it will all be over by Labor Day.

You mean, they were given examples and nevertheless, they persisted?

For varying definitions of "all be over with" sure.

If only there were ways of minimizing the chance people got the Delta, and some sort of way to minimize its effects if they got it.

I have an idea.

The only good news is that being vaccinated does appear to mitigate the severity of some of the new variants, so that's something. If only there was some program in place that could help Americans prepare, and stockpiles of vaccine at the ready...

F*cking plague dogs.

At this point: mandates or literal bust. Private companies, local/state/federal gov, everything in between. Prove a legit medical reason to avoid a vax or please accept this appointment card for your upcoming shot.

But GMJ, what about the law? Can anyone just do that?

Vaccinate first, dare the judge to stop you later.

Anti-vaxxers are literally providing aid & comfort to the enemy during wartime. They're saboteurs operating out in the open willfully spreading a biological hazard, overwhelming public health services and destabilizing the nation's economy.

At least the stonks and jerbs lines went up, and that's the most important thing in this country.

If we had done this right, it could have been just like after WWII, we could have been one of the few countries with a functioning economy.  And just like that we would have been back to our unquestioned dominance.

I'll bet chickenpox was created in a chicken lab by chickens.  Because we eat too many chicken wings.  Or not enough.  I know which way I'm going.

No, I think he's right. I guess I'll pick the south pole. If it's anything like Greenland, it will be very difficult for the infection to get there.

We seem to be following what happened in the UK if you look at this chart.

We are where the UK was on June 26 or 27 and they peaked around July 20th.  After than date, their cases fell sharply.  THey are a little ahead on vaxxing than the US, but not by that much.

Jeez that lady in the video on oxygen. She's 44. She's younger than me and I thought was must be in her late 50's- early 60's. Oh, and she's furious with herself for "not getting around to getting vaccinated." Good going lady.

All you vaccinated super-spreaders...

'fully vaccinated people might spread the Delta variant at the same rate as unvaccinated people.'

Wear a farking mask you idiots. Thanks CDC for screwing the pooch!!
 
2021-07-30 8:39:16 AM  
I said last week that there were far more breakthrough cases than we were told to expect and I was called dramatic. I'm glad the vaccines keep us from being dead or in the hospital, but we were kinda sold on infection prevention too.

2021-07-30 8:39:34 AM  
I hope I make every unvaccinated ass hole quiver as I asymptomatically spread it around since I'm vaccinated and the worst I might have is a sniffle. Because at this point I'm only hurting the unvaccinated and I hope they all mutate the virus until it starts killing us off by the millions.

Oh what's that? My vaccine might not be as effective ? Well then I guess I'll just get
The booster shot against the new variants until it turns in to western Ebola.

CDC didn't screw up. It's 40% of the gullible idiots who need to politicize a farking disease instead of being a responsible adult.

I find India's numbers interesting here. I was under the impression that it was the damn end of times there a month ago, but this chart looks like a blip.

Holy f*ck.


The original strain of the virus that causes Covid was estimated to have an R0 of 2.7.  Delta is estimated to be above 6, and those were early estimates.  So yeah, it's getting pretty out there.

I remember people telling me that the original virus must have been engineered because it was too contagious. Now that Delta's around, what do the conspiracy theorists say? Do they admit contagious strains can arise by natural mutation, or do they claim Delta is a newly-engineered strain that also somehow escaped?
