fragMasterFlash: My area has had an indoor mask mandate since mid-August. I'm currently seeing far more people than ever ignoring that mandate, and it seems like no one has the energy to confront the maskless anymore.


THIS AND THIS
People are farking tired. The stress, the never ending stupidity from anti maskers/vaxxers...it's just dragged on so long people are tired of 'it', even though 'it' is not tired of us.
I really don't see a way out of this. More will die, it will continue to be a political issue instead of a health issue.

I am a school district administrator. I was astounded that on Thursday - as in two days ago - I had to order two district employed electricians off of campus because they refused to wear masks. this in spite of district policy that everyone must be masked, that employees are not allowed to wear cloth masks, and at an elementary school where every day they've had to send home nearly a dozen kids because they are either testing positive or are presumed positive. They also skipped contact covid pass entry protocols..

I wanted to say, "where the fark have you two been the last two years? What makes you think the rules don't apply to you?"

I'm still thinking about having them formally reprimanded. SMH


"We're union members. Our union rules matter more than your silly school rules" is probably how that will go.

WillofJ2: Can some one simplify this?  Is there a lag in reporting deaths?  Are they blaming the deaths on the hospital burden? Or are these deaths post covid infection by a secondary cause brought on from covid?


Not a lag in reporting deaths. He is repeating what the data shows in the primary courses: the lag is that Omicron doen't kill many people in the first 21 days like other variants, but it seems in South Africa to be killing people later, like in week 4-6. Unless there is something else to account for those deaths. The alternative is really hard to explain though. There isn't a source of a Daylight Saving Time effect, or whatever the alternative would be.

There might be a counterargument that it is hospital burdens. He cautions against drawing that conclusion because so many jurisdictions, even in South Africa, have stopped collecting and/or reporting data.

That leads to the childhood Long Covid problem. There are way more kid with Long Covid right now than the recorded number of childhood infections should cause. So that means that the childhood infections are going unrecorded.

Back to South Africa, it means that by not recording or reporting Covid infections, we have the dilemma of an obvious cause of the deaths (Omicron) but from lack of reporting, we have a scapegoat (hopital burden). But previously in the pandemic, the hospital burden and all the other variants did not kill this many people. Hence he concludes, it is Omicron.

I think I've taken more word to explain it than he did. Really, you should just click on the Twitter thread.

2)  "Its not as bad the 3rd time around with no lube.  Trust me bro!"

3)   "I want comprehensive data that proves Lex Steele is in fact in the equine category before I officially declare my anus is wrecked.  Otherwise, its just fake news!"

AeAe: So omicron is infecting mostly unvaxxed/Trump-supporters, right? What's the downside?


I think omicron is infecting everyone.
Fauci pretty much said it.

The difference is it's severity which seems determined by several factors.
Vaxxed or not
Age/comorbidities
Speed/availability of treatment

The downside is as long as it's circulating widely even mild cases leave the door open for re-infection and mutations.

We really don't have enough of a handle on this to write it off as "well, I'm vaxxed, screw the rest", especially if protection from the vax "wears off" over time.

Dress code violations are serious.

At least, I have seen them taken very seriously, often to absurd lengths.

It is improper to show your "you-know-what" around schoolchildren. It's shockingly indecent, and somebody unable to understand the problem lacks the judgement to be around kids.

There are lots of good people looking for work. Many if them are capable of following basic instructions, which is what this really boils down to. Isn't it?

Whoops. It's not Mild.

So tired of people putting health and welfare second to the economy.

It's a lot of what I call devil's arithmetic. On a case-by-case basis, Omicron is milder than Delta, but it is also more infectious. Current numbers say Omicron patients are 15-20% less likely to go to the ER with severe symptoms and 40% less likely to be hospitalized overnight than Delta patients. However, Omicron is also 2-4x more infectious than Delta with a higher R0. This means that most people will not experience a bad case with Omicron, but there will be more people experiencing bad cases than seen with Delta due to how many people are getting it.

Citation needed

The original "it's mild" came from one doctor and his sample size was 43 of his patients

I recently was sick as shiat, as bad as the first time I had covid if not worse. My wife and adult son were also pretty sick. Straight up respiratory illness

Two negative antigen tests, one negative PCR test and a negative flu swab, which it was way longer than the flu anyway.

So me saying omicron isn't caught by the PCR tests, or there is a strain that's not detectable or an entirely different bad disease is out there is just as cromulent.

But I really am interested in knowing more and not busting your balls.
But it's not mild.


It's anecdotal, but I have a coworker who had covid, and had taken two rapid tests and both were negative.  He was pretty sick and eventually pcr came back positive.

Here's the data I used. https://www.biospace.com/article/real-world-uk-data-suggests-omicron-less-severe-than-delta/ I do not disagree with you that Omicron isn't mild. I personally want more data because every report is comparing Omicron to Delta, but Delta is suspected to cause more severe cases in unvaccinated patients than earlier strains. The line about Omicron being more mild is misleading at best. The most positive take is that it is milder on a case-by-case basis but still capable of causing severe illness in some patients. This means that you still need some of the basic preventative measures, like masking, vaccination, and social distancing. Unfortunately, a lot of those measures are being dropped for political reasons.

They aren't instructional, so they don't fall under my supervision. I have to talk to operations administration and have them set up a meeting with projects admin.

Yes, stuff like this is how a lot of bad apples get ignored. I'm going through the process, but part of the "thinking about" is a time consuming process to even figure out what the proper process is. And all are a time when we are super busy and under a lot of pressures.

I don't know, but after reading that article back in the day, I stopped looking to him for advice. It's not my responsibility to look at what he posts and figure out what the flaw is.

That's being said, I agree it's not mild (never seen any compelling proof that it is). Wear a mask.

Bennie Crabtree: Telephone Sanitizer Second Class: WillofJ2: Can some one simplify this?hi

Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding is a sharp guy who is very good at analyzing data and trends, and using that to cherry pick worst case scenarios. So, things are worse than we thought, but not as bad as he predicts.

Hope that helps.

No, he does not cherry pick worst-case scenarios. He has been quite accurate. You have been wrong a lot, though, deliberately underplaying threats from Covid; and, when you are obviously wrong 2 or 3 months later, (obvious beyond just reading incoming data and analysis), you don't offer any mea culpa.


Excuse me, what? I've never downplayed covid and have nothing to apologise for. I've been wearing an N95 since March 2020 and got my booster in November. Either you are confusing me with someone else or you've got some serious issues. Get bent.

AeAe: So omicron is infecting mostly unvaxxed/Trump-supporters, right? What's the downside?


Let's pretend that's a serious question, because some Farkers actually believe that.

A) Trumpers aren't the only ones refusing to get vaccinated or wear masks. They're just the loudest and most obnoxious about it. Not all anti-vaxxers announce themselves.

B) Even if Trumpers were the only ones refusing to take precautions, Omicron doesn't run on karma. It can still infect the vaccinated, the most commonly used masks reduce your chances of spreading it but don't offer much defense against catching it, and its impact varies from person to person. The hate-spewing Karen with the phony medical excuse and a browser history loaded with moronic conspiracy theory bullshiat could potentially catch Covid two or three times and have no ill effects, and unfairly pass it on to someone else who had shots and boosters and always wore a mask. Viruses don't care about politics or ideologies, just opportunities. (That's not to say the unvaccinated aren't more at risk than the vaccinated. They definitely are. But while they're taking the much bigger gamble with their health, only some of them will lose. Not all of them.)

C) Everyone can't just stay home, because for many, if they stop going to work they'll quickly find themselves without a home. There's a vast array of service and labor jobs that can't be done remotely, and it's unlikely we'll hear any serious talk of more stimulus checks this year.

In short, no one is 100% safe, and getting all excited over Covid death toll numbers is both uneducated and warped. Don't be a ghoul.

It's about a huge increase in unexpected deaths.

A lot more people are dying; their deaths are not being attributed to COVID, but that is likely a reporting problem.

There's a rediculus amount of morality after Covid that is not included among the official rolls.  Insurers are starting to gripe as deaths are at least 40% more frequent, even in 18 year olds.

My oldest sister is quarantining with Covid right now. She had the two shot vaccine plus a booster shot. She wears a mask, but works in a hospital/prisoin/mental health institute. Prior to contracting Covid, she contracted pnuemonia. Her doctor speculates that the pnuemonia lowered her immune system making her vulnerable to Covid despite the 3 vaccince shots. She has gotten slightly worse each week  for three weeks. She can't smell anything. She is irritated because her doctor refuses to give her a steroid to help her breathe citing the possible side effects. She asked "What about the side effects of suffocating because I can't breathe?"

I agree. If you are vaxxed and boosted, your case is mild. I had both my fully vaxxed 6-year-old and unvaxxed 4-year-old catch Covid in the past two weeks. The 6-year-old caught it at school and brought it home, where the 4-year-old caught it. The 6-year-old never got worse than a runny nose. The 4-year-old was a bit worse, with a fever and a lot more lethargy. Both technically had mild cases, but it was noticeably worse for my child who can't get vaxxed yet. It also fits with what I am hearing, that most of the hospitalized and dying patients are unvaxxed.

I recently was sick as shiat, as bad as the first time I had covid if not worse. My wife and adult son were also pretty sick. Straight up respiratory illness


I think lots of people had delta when the assumption is they had omicron. That was based on sequencing mutations ratios as of about 2 weeks ago (from nextstrain.org).  I don't think omicron took off in most countries as fast as people generally assumed so there is a huge mix of the two.  If you have had covid before, the next one is usually milder but like everything, there are exceptions.  When covid does lots of damage, one of the ways it does that is causing the body to damage itself and I expect that may be why some people have the 2nd case worse.

This new info may show that people aren't getting the respiratory part bad enough to get treatment and maybe the blood problems are killing them.  With the original strain, people would show up in the ER unable to breath, be treated for that and then find out they were developing complications like diabetes which would also be treated.  Now it looks like people are getting at most "a mild flu", self treating, developing complications which also go untreated and then having long term effects.  If that is the case, omicron isn't the magic safe covid many have been looking for.

Dunno, man, it looks like US hospitalization and ICU usage are pretty bad now.  Click on 'inpatient capacity' and compare the last week of hospitalization to any week in the pandemic up until this time.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was "milder," and I certainly expect it to be much milder for vaccinated and boosted people; but there's simply no way you can have a variant this contagious, with this much immune escape, in a country with 80-100 million unvaccinated people, and not have tons of badness happen.  The unvaccinated are now exposed to an unprecedented amount of infected individuals.

It's so bad right now here that they had to switch the schools back to virtual temporarily because even with combining classes, and using admins and service personnel covering classes there aren't enough substitutes to keep up with the cases among teachers.

Of course before that two of my kids were exposed. They didn't have any symptoms but I'm pretty sure they brought it home to me and the wife. We both have had all three shots (Pfizer). I had three days of aching, coughing, headache, and heavy congestion. Wife has same symptoms but hers are lingering are bit longer.

We tried to get tested but the line was probably 300 cars deep so we just turned around and went home and have been isolating based on our symptoms.

They shut down my school all this week. And are telling us employees we may be out this week coming up. BUT they still held basketball games at our school hosting other teams from across the county.

I think if when all of this first happened if they would have outright banned all school sports and charge families with endangerment when they let their kids go run around with other kids during the school shutdown it would have made a huge difference and saved a lot of lives.

Nadie_AZ: fragMasterFlash: My area has had an indoor mask mandate since mid-August. I'm currently seeing far more people than ever ignoring that mandate, and it seems like no one has the energy to confront the maskless anymore.

Its like a cold war here. No one says nothing to anyone


Just sing this, to the tune of Daisy (or Sailing):

Plague Rats, Plague Rats,
Over the Bounding Main,
I see Plague Rats
Over and over again.
They don't wear their masks when walking,
And cough on you when talking,
They go where they want,
And do what they want,
And they don't give a fark about youuuuuu.

Once they hear it, every time they hear the tune you will have free rent in their brain.

Fonaibung: Eric Feigl-Ding, subject of this article on misinformation?

I'll wait before reacting to his alarmism.


Wait, so you're calling him 'alarmist' for being one of the first to bring to people's attention how bad the COVID pandemic would be?

'Prescient' seems like a more apt adjective.

How many times has the douche bag actually been right about anything?  He sells the worst case scenario as some kind of truth.  He peddles misinformation.  And for some reason, the mods here keep greening links to his bullshiat.
