    WHO originally said bar for herd immunity was 50% (its definitely not) and i think CDC had it at 80% but more transmissible variants will nudge it higher

    The party of small government telling local governments what they can and can’t do is quite the brain twister

    Wasn't the original thinking that UK would outcompete P1(Brazil) and other variants? That chart from Bedford makes me wonder which one will win in spreading through US.

    Unfortunately, this is how the next few months have to be. Target areas where vaccination levels are low and offer incentives

    If P.,1 is more contagious than B.1.1.7 then you'd probably eventually see the newest cases (even with an overall drop in average daily number) be more P1 dominant. I don't think that people who get B.1.1.7 who are unvaccinated still wouldn't be completely defenseless against P.1 and we'd hopefully still see cases dropping throughout the summer, but I'm not an expert.

    Wellllllll

    Modi declared herd immunity, and therefore victory was reached in Jan/Feb, and did jack shit about another wave happening. Natural immunity isnt great against variants you didn't originally get sick from.

    The health care system broke down,, completely collapsed in most areas, international aid has gone missing, cops are confiscating oxygen from citizens to give it to "VIP"s in hospitals...

    It's hard to say it's not deserved, because your corrupt party is using the state to steal life saving O2 from desperate people trying to save family

    “It’s really coming fast now. And that is the most worrisome thing for me, because this is a different demographic; these are young people cardiac-arresting before they come into the hospital. These are middle-aged white guys,” she said. “Sorry to say that, but it really is that demographic that hasn’t gotten around to getting vaccinated or doesn’t really feel like they need vaccination, and they really want to see what the vaccine is going to do before they take it.”

    “This new group of patients, some of these folks, some — these are generalizations, so be careful with that — are folks that are anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, and they don’t believe that they have COVID or are sick because of it, and our staff is getting some very angry folks,” she said.

    It's been this way in the south for a while now

    Look at average age of admissions

    Edit - at least in Florida due to high rates of olds vaccinated

    Israel clocked in at 0.1% positivity there at the weekend with all variants present. % of 1 dose is also interesting given various statements on HI in here.

    To receive the payment, workers must provide proof of their vaccination to their human resource departments and agree to receive booster shots recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over the next 18 months.

    “We strongly encourage businesses across the state to consider offering incentives to their workers as well,” Gov. Larry Hogan (R) said in a statement.

    Yeah all of our native corporations were allowed to secure their own vaccines separate of the state’s allotment. That’s why we were number one (fuck you, Taiwan) for the first 3-4 months in vaccine distribution.

    62%.

    US is on 44%, the big problem being the geographic differences. At the same time though, I expect you have higher naturalised immunity.

    UK is on 51%, probably similar enough naturalised immunity to the US and seems to be getting close to HI.

    The dumbass in the MI Legislature is throwing a fit about the new roll out plan. We are currently at 50% vaccinated and he was saying there is another roughly 2 million with natural immunity from infection so all restrictions should be gone since north of 70%. Issue being how would one know how many people that were infected have also since been vaccinated??

    So obviously being more virulent is bad but earlier onset of symptoms is probably good so people aren’t out spreading it right?

    I hope so. I have no idea what the risk calculus for people in any region of India is right now. People might just be assuming everyone in an urban area has already caught it and is going out anyway :/

    Full FDA approval makes it easier for corporations to require vaccinations, I'm told.
