Well Florida just slipped in another "historical" death update taking them from 56,416 up to 57,300. :-(

India also entered the 34M+ clubhouse with 3 months worth of cobwebs and dust to deal with before they get settled down.

Meanwhile after yesterday's jab run, other than the usual bit of needle soreness, I'm suffering more from having to use that clutch on that little Coaster bus and I didn't use it all that much (unloaded changes were done without its use).

Here's some rather nasty targeted misinformation being pushed onto schools, parents and children:


Covid: Misleading vaccine claims target children and parents
wrote:
Campaigners have been gathering outside schools, handing out what they claim are legal documents or "notices of liability" to head teachers, warning them not to vaccinate children...

... Fake consent form

A fake vaccine-consent letter, pretending to be from the NHS, was sent to schools in England.

The letter falsely stated there was a "one in 29,389 chance of dying from the vaccine"...

... The figure appears to have been taken [and used out of context] from the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency's Yellow Card scheme, for people to report any suspected side-effects after vaccination.

Roughly 49 million people have had at least one vaccine dose...

... As of August, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) had recorded nine deaths to which the vaccine was found to have contributed, five of which had the vaccine as the underlying cause. This was determined by doctors who examined the patient and had access to their medical records and test results.

That suggests a one in five million risk of dying [from whatever cause being triggered by the vaccine].

On the other hand, the risk of dying of Covid if you are unvaccinated has been estimated at 0.8% or 35,000 deaths per five million for all ages. And there have been 161,000 deaths so far where Covid was judged to be an underlying cause, including at least 76 children...

... They emphasise these rare negative events from the vaccine while downplaying the risks to children of catching the virus - including "long Covid".

Most cases of myocarditis after vaccination were resolved quickly following treatment...

... Myocarditis is actually more common after catching Covid than after the vaccine...

... It is difficult to pin down how many people are actively campaigning against the vaccine for children - but there is evidence it is fewer than they would like people to think. Several seemingly grassroots groups have sprung up appearing to be operating separately - but they seem to consist of a relatively small number of overlapping members...


Really? That's from a few 'misguided' parents?

Or are there darker more mischievous deadly games at play to disrupt the good health of all?...


Stay safe folks!

Over here in my area, we've had the first mere few days of cold dark nights and a brief chilly wet spell and already:

There's a widespread blast of people coughing along with...

Flu!

And the medical centres here are swamped with very worried people rushing to be checked for COVID to be told (thankfully), nope, 'just' flu. So far...

Yet, out in the town and around the supermarkets, too many people are maskless. Disney lemmings the lot of em'?...


Meanwhile, I'm very glad to have been jabbed for covid and also for this year's flu. Also very glad to be still wearing my mask anywhere inside a public space.

Stay safe and stay healthy folks!

And another Florida update, while claiming an increase of +2 the total is now 57,711.
edit] Florida did a +3 yesterday as well.

Gladys may have been a procrastinator, but our new little privileged rich boy is a total imbecile and even our dysfunctional PM, SloMo, had to step in and overrule him.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison shuts down NSW Premier’s ‘open for business’ border announcement.

[edit] Anti-vaxxers also suffered 2 major blows late today as the NSW Supreme Court has thrown out two cases challenging mandatory vaccinations for essential workers. Just get the jab you losers.

[edit:2] Here's a bit about our new state premier.

Hancock's folly has been undone!

Matt Hancock's United Nations role withdrawn
wrote:
Former Health Secretary Matt Hancock has had a job offer from the United Nations withdrawn.

Mr Hancock tweeted earlier this week that he had been given a role helping Africa's economy recover from Covid.

The UN said Mr Hancock would bring valuable experience to the role - but it has now told him the appointment "is not being taken forward".

Leading figures across Africa and UK opposition parties had criticised the UN's choice of the MP...

... the West Suffolk MP faced a backlash from critics on social media, who pointed to the fact that a highly critical report from MPs on the UK government's handling of the pandemic...

... "If Matt Hancock wants to help African countries recover from the pandemic, he should lobby the prime minister to back a patent waiver on Covid-19 vaccines. "If he'd done that when he was in government, tens of millions more people could already have been vaccinated.

"The last thing the African continent needs is a failed British politician. This isn't the 19th Century."

HEAR! HEAR!!

And quite rightly so!

I guffawed that he'd even been suggested in the first place!!


Stay safe folks!

As the colder weather draws closer, this is sadly not looking good for Russia:


Covid: Russia's daily deaths pass 1,000 for first time
wrote:
Russia on Saturday recorded 1,000 Covid-related deaths in a single day...

... The figure had been rising all week, with the Kremlin blaming the Russian people for not taking up vaccination...

... The government has avoided bringing in strict restrictions because it says it needs to keep the economy working. The Kremlin has instead focused [excuses and blame] on public apathy on vaccination...

... "It is really irresponsible not to get vaccinated. It (covid) kills," he said...

... with the lack of international vaccines inside Russia, has led some Russians to take advantage of vaccination tour packages. Serbia - which Russians can enter without a visa - is one nation where visitors can get a jab of a vaccine such as Pfizer, and open up the possibility of travelling around the world.


Worse than an old fashioned war?...

By the end of the last reporting period the world's total case tally surpassed 241.1 million while total deaths now exceeds 4.9 million.

Changes to the top 50 on the death list were Thailand flying over Egypt, Japan and Portugal to land in 38th spot as Myanmar removed the Netherlands from 36th while Malaysia replaces Bangladesh in 28th and Romania passed the Philippines to claim 20th place.

Changes to the case list were Anguilla replacing Greenland in 207th place, Antigua/Barbuda nudged past Saint Martin into 193rd while St. Vincent Grenadines became the 191st member of the 4K+ club before taking 190th position from Comoros (Dominica became the 192nd member of the 4K+ club), Niger displaced Guinea-Bissau from 180th as Brunei leapt over Yemen, New Caledonia and Gambia to land in 173rd, Barbados took flight over the C.A.R., the Channel Islands, South Sudan, Saint Lucia, Hong Kong and Iceland before landing in 166th for refueling and the Congo passed Andorra to take up 161st spot.

Nicaragua took a short flight over Andorra, Mali and Aruba to land in 158th place, Mauritius passed Taiwan to claim 156th as Belize bumped Haiti out of 145th, Laos became the 140th country to enter the 30K+ clubhouse before passing Guinea to take 139th while Syria leapfrogged Malta and Cabo Verde into 133rd, French Guiana slipped past Madagascar into 128th and Réunion was replaced by Guadeloupe in 122nd spot.

Angola took 118th spot from Malawi, China was displaced from 112th by Cameroon while Singapore took a long flight over Uganda, Namibia, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Montenegro and Australia to land in 101st to take on more fuel, Latvia also took flight over Albania, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Botswana before landing in 92nd as Armenia swept Bahrain from 82nd, Slovenia took 80th from Oman, Ethiopia was displaced from 73rd by Lithuania and Ireland kicked Kuwait out of 66th place.

Bulgaria replaced Sri Lanka in 55th place, Costa Rica took 53rd from Saudi Arabia as Vietnam stepped right on past Switzerland into 40th, Canada retook 27th from Chile while Thailand rolled right over Japan into 24th, the Netherlands reclaimed 22nd back off of Iraq and that finishes off this update.

Face palm

We all know that anti-vaxx claim is all medieval voodoo hocus-pocus stupid. Totally ridiculous even.

The bigger question is how is it those teachers do not realize the stupidity?

Or wait... Is that some religious/cult 'school'?...

Prof Penny Ward, a pharmaceutical expert at King's College London, said: "As we know the UK government is in dispute with Valneva having cancelled the UKs order of up to 100million doses, placed by the Vaccines Taskforce in 2020, in September.
"The results today suggest that this decision might yet be regretted, but because of it Valneva might be able to provide an immediate supply of this vaccine for other countries struggling with the freezer shipping requirements of other, more expensive, vaccines. Good news for Covax and countries still awaiting supplies."
No problem, just the numpties in Westminster exerting their "power".
Fantastic news

Another out of touch Trump RINO has a go at Australia's way of dealing with COVID.

Australian politician on Cruz, vaccines: 'We don't need your lectures, thanks mate'.

Cruz might say that he loves Aussies, but he certainly doesn't understand us (even a little bit).

Now let's have a look at the numbers.

Texas; pop. just under 29 million, total cases over 4,180,400, total deaths over 69,500.

Australia; pop. just under 26 million, total cases over 145,300, total deaths over 1,540.

I also don't think that Cruz understands numbers at all (or he gets buggered by numbers over 20, and that's if he has 5 digits on each of his 4 limbs), but he certainly got us here laughing at his stupidity.

ROFLMFAO!!!

To Get Those Numbers AUSSIE LEADERs and Their Lickspittles SHOWed Their TRUE Authoritarian/GESTAPO Leanings. And Once Expressed,
an Almost IMPOSSIBLE Chore to Let Go of SUCH HORRID POWER.

I Noticed Many Aussies DID NOT Appreciate these NAZI TACTICS. These AUSSIEs are WELCOME to Cross Our Southern Border Anytime.
And NOW is dA Best Time

Weee da Weeee Peoples of USA -Red Leaning of course - always Want MAXIMUM FREEDOMs -No Matter da Deadly Consequences.

If We Were Allowed to Freely Use ALL AVAILABLE Therapeutics, Our Numbers would have been WAY LOWER.

But Our Media and Leftist Gestapos Did a GREAT JOB F'in dat Up.

Thankfully we have far fewer covidiot morons here than over there, but we'll send them over to you as we can do without them, and even though the U.S. had a head start on us by months our vaccine jabs by percentage of population here have passed the U.S. already.

BTW, only little Donny that I know of in recent history has used "NAZI TACTICS" straight out of Hitler's playbook (that he does, or did, own as stated by 1 of his ex-wives and he read it a lot apparently which is why that marriage ended quickly). ;-)

Anymore statements of stupidity?

Well Florida's death count has quietly jumped from 57,718 up to 58,142 with another so called "historical" update.

Meanwhile Indiana became the 14th U.S. state to join the 1M+ case club and get ready for the grand opening of the U.S.'s 46M+ case clubhouse which will be happening real soon.
