Data on student/teacher hospitalizations from Sweden.

Highlights:

over a 4 month period 15 students were admitted to the ICU (0.77 per 100,000). Zero deaths.

Over the same 4 month period 30 teachers(19/100,000) were admitted to the ICU.

Teachers were 57% less likely to be admitted to the ICU than the general public (non-healthcare).

Biden going to change strategy on vaccine supply. This goes against initial CDC recommendations, but I think it makes a lot of sense. Supply is not the issue and this puts States more in control of their stock and schedule.

Yes thats common sense, one dose gives you at least 70% immunity and maybe more. Totally rediculous to hold back any doses. If your booster is a little late who cares, the cumulative immunity will be much higher faster.

Me and my wife were just this morning talking about how stupid it is to hold back doses. Good to hear that will change.

Against CDC. Last time I checked that was cause for outrage from the jamm jamm clan.

Right. You never said a bad word about following the cdc when DJT was taking the advice. Now, ......

Wallace:clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:
I didn't listen to them, I started wearing an N95 mask whenever I went in public, immediately after they said don't wear masks, they don't work, we need them for first responders. Use your half a brain if you still remember how to.

Pretty sure dump ignored the CDC for the most part.

Sorry, but I'm calling bullfeathers and during a time of national emergency we need to Unite - hence the name UNITED STATES of Ameican.

During WWII, we produce the armaments on the following timeline -

One plane every 4 seconds
One tank every 7 seconds
One ship every day

Per Doris Kearns Goodwin.

So don't tell me we couldn't have done a better job regarding tracing and testing or a national rollout of the vaccine - Dump had never carried about the detail and neither have most of this cabinet; anyone who deals with logistics in their job, understands that's how stuff is completed. Plan you work; work you plan - It ain't pompous rhetoric.
We produced a plane every 4 seconds? That would be over 86,000 planes per day. Better check your math.

I know you're gunning for me Poopsie, but if you have an issue please contact Doris Kearns Goodwin - as that's what she said on Morning Joe. I have no idea how many shifts they were running, days they were operating or if she misspoke and meant 4 minutes, if it was only at peak production, et al, if it's so important to you, look it up - you per one of you posts will be sitting your behind in warm climates over the next three months.

America has the horse power to have done a much better job and not had a calamity on this level with deaths and economic peril at this level, and the not using the Defense Production Act is another example of Dumbo Donald's failed leadership and not having a coherent plan to deal with a National Emergency. Hint - if something direly effects the whole country, it = a national emergency. Leaders lead and losers run and cower (he admitted he was scared to deal with it on the Woodward tapes). Watch and learn as an old master, President Biden shows how its done son!

If you go down Mexico way, best be careful, the virus is raging there and I think it would be mind boggling to catch it there. I'd opt for the super platinum travel insurance as the really good kind will airlift you, if need be, to the best hospitals in available and you should be able to afford it, if you keep you margarita consumption at a reasonable level. May be a good idea to not mix with the local talent either, ;).

You know the one thing i do like about this scamdemic is how every other treadmill is blocked off.

I swear, you can be on the treadmill, and theres like 20 open treadmills on each side of you, and some jerkoff will get on the treadmill next to you...................the one good thing about the scamdemic
Hit the weight room, bitch.

Every 4 seconds... 😂

I just did a quick check. In 1944, at peak production, the US made 94,000 planes. In a year. Not in a day.

Your statement was so ridiculous it should have been immediately obvious to anyone. Here’s a hint. Before posting numbers again, make sure it passes the sanity check.

FWIW - I have not produced a single plane today. Nor am I likely to.

Haven’t seen much chatter about this. Who is aware of what’s happening in CA? None of their draconian measures are working.

Like A V shaped recovery you and LBGA & Section 8 were sure would happen.

I was simply relaying something I heard on a TV show, not pretending I'm the Minnesota equivalent of Buffet.

Here Einstein, here is the math for what was still an impressive feat, despite your boorish and childish protestations -

94,000/365 = 257 Per day, 4 per every 60 minutes. Still an impressive feat and drives home the point, this country can do great things if asked/pushed - which your Dumbo Deferment Donald Didn't Do - man I love alliteration Poopsie.

Apparently, she misspoke; she's 78 years old talking very early in the morning and considered an expert in her field - unlike you - of you wouldn't have time to flaunt your mediocre intellect you'd be to busy. Oh, and most important to someone of your value system, she's worth 10 million.

You are wrong more than you are right and I'm this holmes -

Because this has been talked about so many times. Mitigation measures aren’t going to stop the spread or spikes in most situations. The hope is to reduce it. California is still in the bottom third of deaths per million. Right now their 7 day average is around 450 and it’ll probably go up to 500-600 before dropping down. For comparison, if California’s peak were to get as bad as South Dakota’s was, they’d have to average nearly 1200 deaths a day.

Anecdotally throughput is an issue. Ramping up to ~2-3M per day is going to involve some long lines and strain on infrastructure. I’m still incredulous that pharmacies will be able to handle this. Each individual requires check-in, questionnaire, 15-30 minute monitoring. Anaphylaxis events are very rare but there need to be people ready to intervene. County mass vaccinations are ramping out here but this is a laborious process for the crews. Frustratingly slow to be honest.

I received the Moderna option. Not only is my home wifi range better but no side effects thus far. Based on their EUA applications to the FDA dose 2 of Moderna and Pfizer seems to have a meaningful increase in chills, nausea, injection site soreness vs placebo. It would be nice to get as many people vaxxed ASAP before people get freaked from anecdotal side effects. One dose may be up to 70-90% efficacious bit time will tell on how the new variants affect those estimates.

I’m not sure the data is 100% solid but some experts are saying new variant does seem to be more transmissible, maybe up to 1.55x. If true, that’s not good. I’d hope we are gunning to get the 65+ year olds vaccinated immediately. DeSantis has the right idea IMO. By mid-January we should be able to walk and chew gum at the same time in terms of getting both vulnerable old and essential front line HCW people their shots.

If the measures have prevented an even steeper increase that would've happened without them, why doesn't that count as working?
