Even with the state of Michigan again missing from the latest data the U.S. has come in 1st again on new daily case count with over 112,000 being reported as India came in 2nd with just over 42,800 and Brazil in 3rd with 40,460. Daily deaths are also increasing over there fast, though they have a way to go yet before they get back into 1st place on that list, but they are back up to 5th (Indonesia holds 1st).

Meanwhile here down under Gladys' continuing bungled " Sydney Softdown" now accounts for 4375 cases along with 22 deaths and it's still leaking like a sieve. A case in point being a Sydney covidiot who recently boarded a plane from Sydney to Melbourne before transferring to a flight to Tasmania while infected and without the 2 required border passes, thankfully he was picked up straight away on touching down in Tasmania and shoved into quarantine under guard, but there's 2 planes of passengers as well as anyone who crossed paths with him down at Melbourne's domestic airport terminal for the 2hr wait that he had between flights (I hope that he gets the book thrown at him by all 3 states). Between that incident and an unconnected new outbreak has Melbourne back into another 7 day lockdown (they do real lockdowns down there unlike here) after just coming out of a 3 week job to crush an earlier outbreak.

Brisbane's 7 day lockdown stemming from a so far untraceable quarantine leak out to a Brisbane high school last week which then flowed onto another 3 local schools may also get extended for another 7 days if numbers don't improve over the next 2 days (Queensland also does real lockdowns like Victoria).

Anyhow the person in hospital that had 1 jab turns out to have been an 84yr old man who's condition suddenly took a turn for the worst on the weekend and was put into ICU straight onto a ventilator, but sadly he lost his life on Tuesday along with a very fit 37yr old man (no jabs) who on his 13th day of isolation suddenly died while taking a shower after complaining of a sudden headache.

Then there's us seniors out in the bush who can't get the jabs for love nor money while the Sydney outbreak creeps ever closer. I was suppose to get my 1st jab back at the end of May through the chemist here, but that has been postpone 3 times now, though hopefully our P.M. and state Premier wern't just talking more B.S. when they said that us country folk should get supplies next week (though I won't hold my breath waiting on that).

At least 1 good thing is that the N.S.W./Qld. border just north of here is closed so other than freight it's just us locals out on the highway these days and I even dropped into the local for the 1st time in weeks after a wander about the village today.

Texas GOP Official Mocked COVID Five Days Before He Died of Virus
A GOP official from Texas who regularly espoused anti-vaccine and anti-mask views online has died from COVID-19, five days after posting a meme on Facebook questioning the wisdom of getting inoculated against COVID.

Dickinson City Council member and State Republican Executive Committee member H. Scott Apley, 45, died in a local hospital around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to a GoFundMe page set up to help Apley’s family with expenses. He was admitted to the facility in Galveston on Sunday with “pneumonia-like symptoms,” and was hooked up to a ventilator as his condition worsened. His wife was also infected, the family said.

I finally heard an explanation for why everyone should wear a mask in public. It appears that people who have been vaccinated and those who have had the disease and recovered can be carriers and still spread the virus.

I've got to wonder what some people use as brains these days.

Wollongong tradie allegedly faked having Covid via text to get off work.

A NSW tradie has been charged and faces up to five years behind bars after allegedly pretending to have Covid so he didn’t have to go to work.

The 23-year-old Illawarra man was charged with fraud after sending a text message to his boss just after 4am on Monday stating he had tested positive and could not go to work, police will allege.

“His co-workers were stood down and self-isolated while awaiting their test results, and several locations near his place of employment required deep cleaning,” NSW Police said in a statement.

Later that day the man allegedly sent another text to his employer claiming that he returned a negative result after having a second test.

But police allege the man had never tested positive in the first place.
Chaos descends on Melbourne CBD as anti-lockdown protest erupt.

Though I must say that they were pretty mild compared to other 1's going on around the world ATM, but they certainly don't help and they peed off plenty more by causing transport chaos for those just wanting to get home.

But at least that young fellow Barack had the sense to cancel his up coming 60th birthday party.

Stated this many times & will continue to do so. We see many especially on social media labelling people conspiracy theorists, whacko's & anti-vaxxers, yet those that call out the authorities & media are ridiculed. Hmm...
...all that is wrong with Covid handling & reporting.
Fake or real?
If real:
1: Why isn't our MSM reporting it (BBC too busy surfing Facebook for stories. i.e Sheepshead fish found in U.S.)?
2: Why has PHE released this now?

Nice cashcow for the government - must get it back somehow.
Nearly 124,000 people had been through the system by mid-July
The cost is £1,750 for a single adult, rising to £2,285 on 12 August, and includes Covid tests on days two and eight
Security companies are hired by the government - the maximum value of Mitie's contract from February to October is £19.6m, the maximum value of G4s's is £66.5m.
Another BP at work.
Lorna Farmer was called on Tuesday by an official who told her that West Midlands Police were looking for her, and that she could be arrested and fined £10,000 if she didn't return to quarantine.
She had already informed police about the issues & been okayed to return home.
I've also stated this in the past. It is about time we got rid of regional police forces & combine into a national force. Not possible? Really? Then what is BTP(British Transport Police)?

Well, it is close to what one would expect. If the vax works you don't get delta and no load. If the vax didn't work (for you) you're nearly the same as un-vax and a hefty load.

Well, the BBC reported it 52 minutes after my post, but only on the "live" rather than the main site.
1 issue that report showed is this: Your CDC posted it online as an MMWR early release on July 30.
But the US Centers for Disease Control have made the same finding

I would say 'not quite'. The theoretical purpose of the vaccine (E&OE) is to educate and inform the human immune system, in advance, of the nasties that may be heading its way. It's then up to the immune system itself to do the final recognition and disposal of said nasties.

I very much doubt that even the pre-warned immune system can mop up all incoming viruses before any make their way into a cell - i.e., before infection takes place. But I do expect that a very much smaller number of viruses would survive through all the stages of infection, replication, and escape back into the external environment.

The lower viral load internally would correspond with the milder symptoms reported by those who still test positive after being vaccinated. To my mind, it would also correlate with a lower transmission rate to the rest of the population. I don't quite see how a milder personal experience of disease can go together with a full scale, unreduced, transmission release.

It seems that the CDC can't even get their own report straight or even communicate its findings properly.

Planet America looks into it to dig out the real facts. (you only have to watch the first 7 mins)

Haven't seen that in a long time. Wonder if the social media folks know what it means.
Saying that, it is something that media & government employees should be aware of & use at the right times.

... expecting to see pigs fly is too much...

All too easily done if the zero-G point is misjudged for the suspension when meeting a hump-back bridge...


For my example, I had a greatly oversized farmer human passenger for which the seatbelt was an impossible fit. Momentarily we 'enjoyed' a fun alternate meaning to "4wd"... Thankfully, the ceiling wasn't damaged. No other damage done either.

Couldn't believe I had that one so very badly misjudged... I'm still suspicious the extra big loading gave an 'extra big bounce'...

I see that the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is going ahead again after last years superspreader event. And the expectations are that 50% more people will attend.
Meade county in South Dakota only has 37% of its population fully vaccinated.
