    Yeah, the flag has dropped and the bs of the anti-vaxxers is revealing itself more, now. It can't even get off the start line, except in their own minds.

    About 99.999% of fully vaccinated Americans have not had a deadly Covid-19 breakthrough case, CDC data shows

    "More than 99.99% of people fully vaccinated against Covid-19 have not had a breakthrough case resulting in hospitalization or death, according to the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

    "Most of the breakthrough cases -- about 74% -- occurred among adults 65 or older."

    NYC Becomes Largest U.S. City To Require Proof Of Vaccination For Indoor Activities

    New York City will require workers and patrons at indoor businesses to show proof of vaccination starting on September 13, becoming the first major U.S. city to take such action amid a surge of new cases nationwide driven by the highly transmissible delta variant.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the new mandate on Tuesday, saying it will apply to indoor dining, gyms and entertainment venues.

    The mayor said New York was the first major city in the U.S. to issue such a mandate.

    "You want to enjoy everything great this summer in New York City? Go get vaccinated," de Blasio said.

    Same thing has just happened here in Sydney.

    Hundreds of thousands (millions?) of people panicked and rushed to get vaccinated at the same time.

    I think our media has a lot to answer for after over-hyping the AZ side effects. It's disturbing to watch the shock jocks who have been making a living spreading that AZ vaccine hesitancy (or worse) suddenly about-turn and plead for everyone to get vaccinated - without even batting an eyelid.

    These scientists are using virtual reality to develop COVID-19 treatments

    As COVID-19 began its deadly rise in Italy, a group of 8 scientists convened in virtual reality. Their mission? To examine molecules that might be a treatment for the rapidly spreading coronavirus in three dimensions. Traditionally this kind of work is done in 2D, on paper, but 3D allows scientists to glean more information about how the molecules work and how they might engineer a drug that could prevent a virus from entering human cells. Now, they've finished clinical trials for a generic osteoporosis medication to be used as a treatment for COVID-19.

    Breakthrough cases aren’t the cause of the US Covid-19 surge

    Unvaccinated people still make up the vast majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. They’ve made up more than 94 percent of reported Covid-19 cases in states with available data, a report last week from the Kaiser Family Foundation found. They’ve also made up similar, or higher, shares of hospitalizations and deaths.

    Then there’s what really happened in the Provincetown outbreak. The headlines noted three-fourths of people infected by the virus were vaccinated. But among the more than 900 cases tracked as a result of the outbreak, just seven led to hospitalization — and there were zero deaths. If this was 2020, when there were no vaccines, closer to 90 people would have been hospitalized and about nine would have died, based on hospitalization and death rates over the last year.


    https://www.vox.com/22602039/breakthrough-cases-covid-19-delta-variant-masks-vaccines

    If they didn't adjust their 2020 estimates for the Delta variant being involved at Provincetown, then their 2020 estimates should be higher than they're stating. imo

    China shuts down transport routes as it battles worst Covid outbreak in months

    Every province has advised residents not to leave as flights are cancelled and Beijing suspends more than a dozen rail lines

    China has dramatically tightened travel restrictions as it seeks to control the country’s worst outbreak in months, with hundreds of Delta variant cases linked to airport employees.

    The latest outbreak has so far infected more than 400 people in 25 cities, including the capital city, Beijing, and in Wuhan for the first time since it contained the initial Covid-19 outbreak last year. Cases have been reported in 17 of the 31 provinces.

    FDA COULD GRANT FULL APPROVAL TO PFIZERS VACCINE BY EARLY SEPTEMBER

    https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/0...pproval-to-pfizers-vaccine-by-early-september

    "Federal regulators have been under growing public pressure to fully approve Pfizer’s vaccine ever since the company filed its application on May 7. “I just have not sensed a sense of urgency from the F.D.A. on full approval,” Dr. Ashish K. Jha, the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, said in an interview on Tuesday. “And I find it baffling, given where we are as a country in terms of infections, hospitalizations and deaths.”

    From an outsiders perspective, the issue here is that mavericks promoting and profiting from snake-oil cures and wacky conspiracy theories are under the spotlight in your country.

    For you to naively group censorship solely with communism almost smacks of McCarthyism propaganda in itself.

    For better or worse, censorship has been used by many governments and rulers throughout history during times of war and social upheaval to keep the population united and silence dissent.

    Censors were established in Rome in 443 BC, and were voted in by the people under the Comitia Centuriata. They certainly weren't communists.

    Censorship was employed by BOTH SIDES during both recent world wars.

    I don't like censorship, but in some emergency situations, it could be a necessary evil.

    There is really no need to bring communism or any other ideologies into the discussion.

    Don't try and deflect from the Mercola issue you brought up.

    I'm not deflecting anything. Despite being documented liar (virus origin, masks, experimental gene therapy so called vaccines) dr. Anthony Fauci is still not censored from US president's administration. I wonder why?

    And I also wonder how many of those 15.000 articles from Mercola you've read so you came up to that conclusion that he can't prove anything?

    The essence of Mercola's teaching is that there is no scientific consensus. And now we are having scientists like him being censored.

    At googles first page there is still saying: "If it's consensus it isn't science. If it's science it isn't consensus". I wonder for how long we'd be able to find this saying in future? :)

    The problem is who get to decide what is "some emergency situations"? & what have "emergency situations" allowed authoritarians on all ends of the spectrum to do? You either have the freedom to speak or you dont have any freedoms at all.

    In a democracy, the people who have been elected by the majority. Most governments have some sort of legal procedures to step through.

    I think the separation finally ran it’s toll .. it’s almost a perfect 50-50 divide … who knows how it ends but I think it will end soon one way or the other.. my reason for bringing Communism into the equation is because there are people who openly want a Marxist - Communist government in the US .. the speech oppression has been a one sided thing for the most part .. the people I consider bad .. can say or post anything they want with very little censorship.. Covid has been these bad peoples moniker to carry out their narratives the last year and half .. they like the oppression put on others .. it allows them to flow freely with their agendas …

    Trying to force inoculate citizens with the covid vaccine in the US is a huge task for those who support doing it … it appears that they are going in the direction of forced covid inoculations.. I doubt very seriously they will achieve that goal ..

    You lost me a bit with that opening line:
    I think the separation finally ran it’s toll .. it’s almost a perfect 50-50 divide … who knows how it ends but I think it will end soon one way or the other..

    What separation?

    I'm not really up to speed with this because I don't pay a lot of attention to American politics ;)
