    My company is trying to get people back in the building again. Currently we are required to be in the office 20% of the time (one day a week, not bad). Unvaccinated required to wear masks at all times, everyone else masks are optional (I'm wearing mine). Got an announcement today that anyone who went to a particular city in the last month must stay out of the office for at least 10 day, so guess there is an outbreak there.

    In other news, Tokyo is spiking new cases. Feel sorry for the Olympic athletes. They have to either skip an event that would be the pinnacle of their career, or risk getting a virus that could end it.


    Then there is this guy, who is in the hospital with covid, and when asked would still take hospitalization over getting the vaccine. I hope his wife gets the vaccine while he is in there, and for their kids if she can. Wonder if he will still complain about the government trying to force a vaccine down their throats when a nurse has to put a breathing tube there instead.

    Generally it's true, but in this case it looks like the mrna vaccines are providing better protection against variants compared to infection alone. On the other hand, infection plus vaccine works better than either infection or vaccine alone, and that applies to the infected getting only one vaccine dose.

    The moral of the story is to go out and get infected then get your one-and-done vaccine.*

    I have been shouted down for saying that. Though I did not get infected and got two shots myself.
    For saying to only get one shot? Depends on what exactly was said.

    Linda Zuern, former Bourne selectman (and anti-vax activist), dies of complications of COVID-19

    Zuern was one of the first members of the United Cape Patriots, a local grassroots conservative group that frequently held Trump support standouts on the Bourne rotary, along with other rallies.

    She was often seen holding a Trump support poster as motorists drove by honking in support or against, said Adam Lange who founded the group in 2017. Lange was one of four people who protested last week in opposition to the state VaxBus program — which distributes COVID-19 vaccines — when it arrived in Provincetown.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    Republicanism killed her.

    At a Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates meeting in December, Zuern spoke about a report on the use of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment of the COVID-19 virus. Zuern questioned why some doctors were not allowed to use the medicine on patients.

    "That's just a concern of mine that politics has gotten into the way of really helping people who are sick," she said during the meeting, which was her last as an assembly member.
    She wouldn't take the vaccine but spoke out for hydroxychloroquine.

    You dodged the question about what's anti-science about them.

    And what are they about then? Do I need to borrow your tinfoil cap to understand?

    It's a dumb question that doesn't merit a response.

    It's about bullying people that don't want to get vaccinated into getting vaccinated.

    Ironic that she "thought" that the non-use of hydroxychloroquine against Covid is somehow political. But being anti vax is not. She lived in an anti-reality universe.
