...They just smiled and gave us an Omicron sandwich
And they said,

"We come from a land gone under
Where women wheeze and men are dumber
Can you hear the ventilator?
You better run, you better face-cover"

I was just pondering why you don't see that kind of response in Murica. Then it hit me, doing it that way means you don't get to whack at people.

That, and cops here are also antivaxxers.  Cops don't like hurting their own.

If I was a politician there I would go to a TV station and claim that we coordinated with the hospitals to identify four asymptotic individuals that we then sent to mingle into the protesting crowd so that we could build herd immunity.

Seed distrust among them and have them worry about every cough and sneeze they have in the cold weather.

I'll also coordinate with another politician to play good cop politician that warns against this and tells people to go and immediately get vaccinated if they mingled or if they feel any symptoms such as coughing or sneezing or loss of smell*.

/*which are all normal in really cold weather, of course

How can we sleep while our beds are burning?

Tear gas?   Since most of this crowd  is already  or is likely to soon have compromised respiratory systems that seems dangerous

Good

Now Denmark - 95 percent adult vaccinated, 65 percent boosted Denmark - HAS MORE COVID HOSPITALIZATIONS NOW THEN IT DID BEFORE A SINGLE DANE RECEIVED A SINGLE MRNA VACCINE. AND THE VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE VACCINATED. Even boosters have done nothing to reverse the trend. The dark blue line now is about to pass the peak of the light blue line from last year.

That's why it is important to get vaccinated, wear masks, and not attend mass-infection events.

There's something of a negative history concerning water cannons and protests in the U.S. . . .

*Sigh*. Okay, I'll bite, but not for you, for the sake of everyone else.

First - if 95% of the population is vaccinated, it is not surprising if the majority of people in hospital are vaccinated:

If only 1 in 20 people are not vaccinated, those people could still be 19 times more likely to end up in hospital and still be the minority because there are so few of them in the first place.

Second - if there are more hospitalisations, it is because there are more infections, There are more infections because the virus has mutated to become more infectious - which is well documented from the original strain thru alpha and beta, delta, and now omicron - each version out-infects the last one.

But: the proportion of people infected who end up in hospital has dropped since the vaccines were used. That is the important figure here and the one you are trying to bury.

In summary: you are a dangerous, lying a**hole. Get lost.

I wouldn't know... we're not allowed to learn about it in school.

mungo: First - if 95% of the population is vaccinated, it is not surprising if the majority of people in hospital are vaccinated:


Bears repeating.

This is what happens when people don't understand how statistics work.

The vaccine prevents reinfection, but it does not prevent it 100%. Ergo, even if 100% of the population was vaccinated, there would still be a certain number of people with infections.

Second, even if 100% of the public was vaccinated, and there were people with COVID going to the hospital, that statistic doesn't mention a couple of things: whether they are in the hospital in the ICU on ventilators. It could be that, now that more people are vaccinated, and the infections are less severe, people can be admitted for less severe cases and monitored instead of waiting till they're at death's door and shoving a tube down their throats.

And finally, the numbers are going back up because everyone was all "yay, vaccines, we can go back to normal!" and went back to normal, forgetting that vaccines are not 100% effective against COVID, so now more people are getting sick than when we were all staying home.
