Incredible.

But, it really does appear that some people consider the COVID pandemic to be "somebody else's problem" and care nothing for their actions having deadly consequences to others.


Darwin theory in action?...

Stay safe folks!

... STONE COLD fact and truth: If they Did Not VAX Almost All would still be alive.

Comforting Numbers ; Percentages; Brings No One Back to Life.

Yep

So...

As reported so far, sadly we have well over 3,857,500 deaths acknowledged to have been caused by COVID. The actual complete numbers can be expected to be higher than that.

We have had a handful of people die from one of the vaccines against COVID... Those same people would be almost guaranteed dead from COVID out 'in the wild'. Also, we now have a cure for those very few people that are susceptible for those side effects so there should be no more problems from that very rare side effect.

Meanwhile, the side effects of suffering COVID are drastic and debilitating and kill an uncomfortably high proportion of victims. Hence our ongoing pandemic!


COVID is highly contagious.

If you come anywhere near other people, the odds are vastly better to go get vaccinated to get safe.

For yourself AND for everyone else around you.

Stay safe folks!

Now I must ask, WTF is Sweden doing? Did they break their reporting system again or can't they find someone who can count? Or is there a cover up in progress? (I've been putting off this update waiting for their numbers to come in, but I couldn't wait any longer)

The reporting database has been shut down this week again, because of a continuing hacker attack.
If you do not pay well to hire competent IT-experts, but instead hire cheap relatives, and other not qualified people, only "interested" in IT, that is what happens.
Stupid politicians, and leaders, do not understand that IT security must be allowed to cost money, if you want to have secure systems.

As is steadily being required by more and more workplaces:

Bloomsbury staff must be vaccinated before office return
wrote:
Publisher Bloomsbury says vaccines will be compulsory for UK staff returning to its offices when they reopen.

The Harry Potter publisher's decision comes as many firms weigh up the necessity of workforce vaccinations. The government has announced that care home workers in England will be required to have a vaccination or risk losing their jobs...

... Bloomsbury told The Bookseller magazine, which first reported the story, that it had taken both "medical and scientific advice".

"The simple fact is that this virus is still extremely dangerous."...


Regardless of whether that move truly is for the good health of everyone or whether that is just simple cold good business sense to maximize profits by avoiding their staff becoming ill and dying, that still looks to be a very good move to protect everyone.

Covid: Queues at {West Ham's London Stadium} (and pop-up vaccine centres) amid jabs push
wrote:
A major push to offer coronavirus jabs to every adult in England is under way, with queues forming outside pop-up vaccination centres.

Football grounds and parks are among the venues used across the country and it is hoped all adults will have had their first jab by 19 July.

It comes as Prof Adam Finn, who advises the government, warns the Delta variant is fuelling a third wave of infections...

... A woman waiting in the queue told the BBC: "The most important thing was just to feel well, and a bit free in society - and to not be a danger to others either."...

... Most people [that end up] in hospital with coronavirus have not been vaccinated, he said, "so there is a bit of a race to get the vaccination out as soon as possible before the third wave gets really big"...




This is one race the human race must win!

A good example of the way to go:

Brilliant.

That really nicely shows what can be sensibly done. (Don't mention the UK [supposed] "Test 'n' Trace" [Expensive farce]... Spit!...)

The world's total case tally has now passed 179.9 million as deaths fast approach 3.9 million. :-(

There were no changes at the top end of the death list, but there were a couple of unenviable milestone such as Colombia being the 10th country to pass 100K+ deaths while Brazil become the 2nd member of the 500K+ club and now onto the case list changes.

Fiji took a flight over 5 countries earning enough frequent flyer points to enter the 2K+ club before continuing on past another 3 landing in 187th place, Liberia nudged Liechtenstein out of 179th while Sierra Leone replaced Chad in 172nd, Eritrea displaced Niger from 167th as Timor-Leste took 159th from Equatorial Guinea (but that maybe as far as they get), Vietnam also took flight again passing over 5 countries to earn entry into the 13K+ club before passing another 3 to land in 146th spot and Taiwan jumped over Togo and Andorra to become the 143rd member of the 14K+ club.

The Seychelles replaced Mali in 141st spot, Haiti became the 137th member of the 17K+ club followed by P.N.G. as Guyana passed both Eswatini and French Polynesia to become the 134th member of the 19K+ club. Now Mayotte throws up a mystery as 787 cases were removed from their total and losing their membership to the 20K+ club (no explanation is in the notes to cover that correction) leaving the way open for Suriname to replace them as the 132nd member of that club while Trinidad/Tobago became the 124th member of the 30K+ club then passing Australia closely followed by Rwanda who then passed Trinidad/Tobago before both countries Malta and then Rwanda went 1 better by passing Cabo Verde to claim 121st.

The D.R.C. displaced Angola from 117th, Cambodia leapt over Madagascar, Senegal and Zimbabwe to land in 113th place while Uganda leapt over Luxembourg, the Maldives and Mozambique into 105th, Namibia also went past those 3 countries as well as Cyprus to land in 103rd as Mongolia became the 100th member of the 90K+ club before leaping past China, Finland and Ghana to claim 97th, Afghanistan became the 96th member of the 100K+ club before jumping over Montenegro and Uzbekistan into 94th spot and Zambia leapt over Norway, Estonia and Albania to take over 89th.

Cuba caught up to and swept Nigeria from 82nd place, Thailand zipped past both Qatar and Armenia to claim 76th as Lithuania was replaced by Guatemala in 64th, Kuwait shoved Azerbaijan out of 59th while Uruguay took 57th from Costa Rica, Georgia displaced Croatia from 55th and Panama slipped past Slovakia to grab 52nd spot.

Bolivia took hold of 46th spot after passing Greece and Bulgaria, Malaysia became the 38th member of the 700K+ club then they claimed 37th spot from Switzerland while Indonesia became the 18th member of the 2M+ club, Argentina swept Italy out of 8th, as Brazil now contemplates the cobwebs and dust in the 18M+ clubhouse and India does the same in the 30M+ clubhouse.

Meanwhile here down under as Victoria's outbreak comes under control the outbreak in Sydney cause by a limo driver of flight crews now numbers 37 and the possibility of a lockdown is getting closer.

Well this update was effort so I'm now off to recover with a beer or 3.

Covid: Sydney faces new restrictions as cluster grows
wrote:
Sweeping new restrictions will be imposed across Sydney as Australia's largest city grapples with a fast-growing Covid outbreak.

Authorities reported 16 new infections on Wednesday, which brings the cluster there to 37 cases.

Sydney's 5.3 million residents will have to wear masks indoors, and many will be banned from travelling out of the city.

Officials are concerned about the "extremely contagious" Delta variant...

Sadly deadly crazy for something that we have the intelligence and the vaccines available to healthily defeat.

To me, the message and examples there are very clear: Go get vaccinated!

From the people of the "Kappa" and "Delta" variants now comes "Delta Plus"

Indian authorities declare ‘Delta Plus’ mutation as new coronavirus variant of concern.

Indian health authorities have named a mutation of the Delta strain as a new coronavirus “variant of concern”.

The so-called “Delta Plus” variant has so far been found in the Indian states of Maharashtra, where 16 cases were detected on Tuesday, as well as Kerala and Madhya Pradesh.

Genomic sequencing by Indian laboratories has confirmed the Delta Plus variant displays increased transmissibility, stronger binding to receptors of lung cells, and potential reduction in monoclonal antibody response.
