Unrelated to the pandemic, though.

https://www.tapinto.net/towns/nutley/ar ... her-duties
A woman has been relieved of her duties from working at Mountainside Medical Center after videos surfaced of her yelling at Black Lives Matter protesters at a counter-protest in Nutley.

Twitter users reported that Valerie Pastore, of Nutley, NJ was seen at an anti-Black Lives Matter protest on June 26 screaming at protesters and allegedly making the Nazi salute.

The very tense standoff in Nutley, had residents and protesters at odds, when social media rumors stated that the protesters were planning on toppling or defacing the statue of Christopher Columbus. Pastore was among the group of counter-protesters who can be seen yelling obscenities at the BLM protesters. At one point, Pastore yells to the protesters (as seen in the attached video) about China and calls them socialists. Another counter protester calls them communists, and others yell for them to go back to their country.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-57501127
A doctor in Somalia's semi-autonomous region of Puntland told the BBC that between five and 10 of his Covid patients were dying because of a lack of oxygen almost every day.

"These would all be preventable deaths if we had adequate oxygen," said Dr Jama Abdi Mahamud at the government-run Gardo General Hospital.

There are no official figures available showing a rise in preventable deaths, but many low-income countries are struggling to access oxygen supplies amid surging coronavirus cases, and limited or no access to coronavirus vaccines.

UK Has Highest Health Worker COVID Deaths in Europe and Third Highest Worldwide

The UK’s appalling figures are an indictment of the Government’s failure to provide adequate personal protective (PPE) clothing for health workers. This was depicted most dramatically by the image of nurses in Northwick Park Hospital trying to make their own PPE out of bin liners in April 2020 because nothing else was available. According the Daily Mirror, a few weeks later they tested positive for COVID-19.

This was followed by the farce of PPE flown in from Turkey by the RAF including 400,000 much needed gowns accompanied by triumphant and bellicose promises by Matt Hancock, much of which proved to be sub-standard as the Metro reported on 7 May 2020.

“The vital PPE was flown into the UK by the RAF as Britain’s essential heath and care workers continued to risk their lives without proper protection. But the gowns never made it to the frontline and are instead being kept inside a Government warehouse near Heathrow airport after falling short of UK standards”.

There was certainly no lack of money spent of PPE, more than £36 billion so far, so why have our health care workers been so poorly protected?

Since then the Government has been determined to deflect any criticism about the inadequacy of its provision of PPE even though Public Health England guidance often seemed to have been driven by availability rather than international best practice and often fell short of WHO guidelines. This has been highlighted by campaigning group EveryDoctor UK.

Last November, Labour leader Keir Starmer had the temerity to question the Prime Minister over the adequacy of PPE, who confidently declared that “99.5% of the 32 billion items of personal protective equipment conformed entirely to our clinical needs.”

This was at odds with the evidence given to the Public Accounts Committee by DHSC permanent secretary Sir Chris Wormald that 2.9 billion items of PPE costing £1.5 billion were inadequate for use in a clinical setting, as reported in Byline Times last week.

As well as PPE, in the first wave of the pandemic, testing of health workers was slow to be implemented at scale and consistently failed to meet targets.

This not only put health care workers lives at risks but also many patients and most devastatingly led to elderly patients being discharged into care homes with deadly results.

Just so you know how contagious that strain is, a woman in Sydney caught it by walking past an infected bloke. They never got closer than about a foot away as they passed each other.

Vaccines still work, though.

The Galileo Gambit is an informal fallacy where mockery of a position, or the existence of a consensus opposing a position, is provided as reason to take a theory seriously, even in the absence of meaningful evidence for that theory. In recent years, this has taken new form, with a growing assumption among many in the commentariat that all of the ‘experts’ are overtaken by groupthink, constrained by orthodoxy, and wholly dominated by insidious incentives, if not downright malevolence.

Anybody experiencing adverse effects of any medical treatment should report them to their doctor and to the FDA. Informally collecting them in this manner might help provide fodder for this sort of thing but doesn't inform the FDA, the CDC, or the manufacturer.

A certain number of people tend to think that "it" won't happen to them. Like guys who run chainsaws on a ladder, wearing tank tops, shorts, and sandals.

Funny, or not funny, one of the Twitter repliers claimed this variant "passed through California last year, so. . . ."

From the paper:
The SARS-CoV-2 B.1.427/B.1.429 variant was reported for the first time at the beginning of 2021 in California and as of May 2021 has been detected in 34 additional countries. . . .

Anyhow

The paper linked to says clearly the study does not apply to many people


And no long term side effects are known, as in they have no idea if harm will show up later

No it's not - you're a fucking moron.

No vaccine is 100% effective, and the rate of escape with Covid vaccines is low, but more importantly, v accines reduce the chances of serious disease by 99%.

Are you ever right about anything? You're like some kind of perverse contrarian who's too thick to realise he's merely laughable.

Not that you'll accept the evidence.
