And the Omicron variant has evolved into the 4th wave to spread across the world.

That latest genie is very definitely out of Pandora's lamp...

The question now is whether we win the race to convince people to get vaccinated before winter weather and winter partying aid that viral spread.

(Too many deadly puns/sins to count in that lot...)


Regardless, there is good hope yet: We may yet be saved by Science and good sense and a measure of evolution.

Stay safe folks!

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Public health officials say at least five people in Northern California have contracted the omicron variant of COVID-19, and the outbreak is linked to a wedding in Wisconsin last month.
The people were vaccinated and have "mildly symptomatic cases."

Honolulu shut down its largest water source in Oahu due to contamination of Navy well near Pearl Harbor.

Honolulu shut down its largest water source on Oahu Thursday night following reported contamination in the potable water system for Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

The city's Board of Water Supply (BWS) shut down the Halawa Shaft after the Navy said Thursday it found "a likely source of the contamination," which is believed to be petroleum chemicals initiated from the Red Hill well, the Navy confirmed in a virtual town hall meeting.

The Navy added that it has seen concerns from people in the affected neighborhoods who were exposed to the contaminated water and reported symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, and skin related concerns.

The Navy isolated the Red Hill well last Sunday and sent samples out for testing Monday, it said.

"The results of the Red Hill sample showed petroleum hydrocarbons roughly four to ten times below the Hawaii Department of Health Environmental Action Level (EAL). The Navy had a separate test that confirmed vapors, which is another indication of petroleum hydrocarbons," it said in a statement.

"The Navy is developing a plan to restore the potable water system to EPA standards, identify how this contaminant got in the well, and fix the well," the statement continued.

On Tuesday, when BWS heard about the shutdown of the well, it reduced pumping capacity by 50%, it said in a news release. ...

As the U.S. is about to open the doors of its brand new 50M+ clubhouse a question that has been on my mind has been finally answered.

People in pro-Trump areas nearly three times more likely to die from COVID-19: NPR analysis.

People living in counties that voted for former President Trump in the last presidential election are nearly three times more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who live in counties that voted for President Biden, according to an analysis conducted by NPR.

For its analysis, NPR looked at about 3,000 U.S. counties and the deaths per 100,000 people since May 1, 2021. The news organization found that individuals living in counties that voted for Trump by at least 60 percent had 2.7 times the death rate of counties that voted for Biden at the same clip.....

....NPR noted that while vaccine hesitancy was more spread out across different demographics earlier in the pandemic - African Americans, younger people and those who live in rural areas - the vaccination rates have since risen for most of those groups.

However, the vaccination rate among Republicans has stagnated at around 59 percent, while an estimated 91 percent of Democrats are now immunized.

You didn't mention independents.
And as for why independents still exist? We know of the Great Party Switch of the early 70s.

Two reasons to add to why we still have an ongoing pandemic:


{68} Spanish medics Covid positive after Christmas party
wrote:
... Most of the 68 infected are doctors and nurses working in the intensive care unit at Málaga's regional hospital.

Health authorities said they were all at a party attended by about 170 people last Wednesday.

All guests returned negative antigen tests before the event but more than half are now isolating...

Covid vaccine: Why our ... friends and family still won't have a jab
wrote:
The risk of catching and becoming very sick from Covid remains high for black and South Asian people - and it's partly because fewer have decided to get vaccinated against coronavirus...

... The vaccines approved for use in the UK have met strict safety standards and scientists have repeatedly said the serious complications of Covid itself are a far greater risk to people than any rare complications associated with vaccines.

... more South Asian people might have the jab if there was better education and clearer messaging around the benefits of it, as well as [there being] better trust of the government and the healthcare system... "... Does this group feel they can trust the healthcare system the same as their white British peers?..."

... "The government, somehow, needs to regain the trust of its people." ...



Two extremes there of an over-reliance on the 'magic' of vaccines to the other extreme of a total lack of trust...

There has to be a more 'sensible' approach?...

WHO provides positive Omicron news but says more research is needed.

The Omicron variant appears to be no worse than other coronavirus strains, top scientists from the WHO and the United States said, but has cautioned that more research is needed to judge its severity.

The hopeful assessments came as global concern grew over the heavily mutated variant, which has forced dozens of nations to reimpose border restrictions and raised the possibility of a return to economically punishing lockdowns.

While it is likely more transmissible than previous variants, “the preliminary data don’t indicate that this is more severe,” the World Health Organisation’s second-in-command said.

“In fact, if anything, the direction is towards less severity,” WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan said in an interview, insisting though that more research was needed....

A repeated story:


'The unvaccinated ask for jabs, but by then it's too late'
wrote:
Many Covid patients being admitted to Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary are unvaccinated - and ask to be jabbed when they come in, says one senior nurse. The hospital is treating unprecedented numbers of sick people - with Covid and other conditions - at the start of what hospital bosses say could be the toughest winter in the ... history of the health service...


And that's for just ONE hospital...

Post was NOT Understood

VAXXed People are Transferring CV to VAXXed People.
VAXXed People are Transferring CV to UNVAXXed People
UNVAXXed People are Transferring CV to UNVAXXed People
UNVAXXed People are Transferring CV to VAXXed People
SO, What's dA ADVANTAGE and SMARTNESS in Being or Becoming VAXXed?
I KNOW. Less Serious Illness/Sickness and LESS Likely to Die.

Some People Still Believe - If One is VAXXed -they Cannot Infect Anyone. They Can. Same as UNVAXXed.
Now Here is ca RUB.
Because One is VAXXed - Whether they Know or Not Know they Can Pass On Infection - Most Go On with Their Lives
as Usual ala Pre CV. In Effect, because(Depending on Country/Area/etc) The VAXXed will Come Into Contact with
MORE People then UNVAXXed Will. UNVAXXed in Most Places, as a % of Population are LESS than Total of VAXXed.
Therefore, VAXXed Persons will INFECT or RE-INFECT MORE PEOPLE than UNVAXXed.

Getting INFECTED is a Crap Shoot. A Very Small Percentage of People Get Infected.

However, Since VAXXed are Encouraged to Go On with Their Lives and UVAXXed are Encouraged to Believe they are Carrying da PLAGUE and Should Stay Home and When Out STAY AWAY from People - VAXXed Will be OUT AMONGST da POPULACE
more so than UNVAXXed, and Because We ALL KNOW VAXXED can STILL CARRY and INFECT, ODDs are a VAXXed Person is Most Likely to INFECT or RE-INFECT Someone whether they have had CV or Not.

So, Get VAXXed if One is Worried 'bout Getting Infected and One has No Clinical Reason Not Too Or Religious Or Any Reason - 'Cause You Have RIGHTs - to Say NO - or You Desire a Better Chance of Less Sickness/Death or Like Me, I Won't because I'm Rolling da Dice.

GOT IT?

GOoD

...which they are not supposed to do, at least in areas that follow proper protocol. Even vaccinated we are still supposed to wear masks in indoor public spaces, maintain physical distancing, wash/sanitize our hands regularly especially after handling items in a publicly-accessible space, and accurately submit contact tracing when requested when visiting public spaces.

By doing this, we can allow businesses and other public amenities to remain open. The alternative is too many cases for the ICUs to handle and then it's back to lockdown. Pick an option...
