Coronavirus Megathread 10: Don’t Dream it’s Over

Creating this thread since thread 9 is almost at 600 and Sylvia hasn’t posted a new one. (Apologies Sylvia if I have overstepped)

Anyway I am starting this post with the hope that it’l be close to the last, hence the title. Here’s to vaccines, optimism and a post Delta lull.

by Anonymousreply 157October 16, 2021 7:52 AM

Covid-19 revealed to me just how much more disappointing the human race was than I realised. I am still cautiously optimistic (heavy on the caution).

by Anonymousreply 1October 3, 2021 12:23 AM

I'm trying not to be pessimistic, but it's hard.

If you don't mind, I'm going to repost my question that I posted in the last post of the previous thread. I'm too young for the boosters, but I hope they approve it for younger ages soon.

To those who have gotten a booster, are side effects like after the second shot? I ended up taking a sick day the day after the second Pfizer shot because I felt like crap. Wondering if I'll have to do same when I'm eligible for booster

Not optimistic or pessimistic. Like R1, I'm deeply disappointed in the human race. I'm beginning to think there's no hope, that the ideals and values I was raised with are no more real than Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Some reasons why I feel this way:

So many anti-vaxxers unable to understand logic and keeping the pandemic alive

70 million or so votes for Scum Trump. Really? An evil malicious narcissist, cheating, self-serving liar in the White House. Sick.

Climate Change and global warming

Millions of life forms are going extinct

Humans greedily gobble up earth's resources and breed like rabbits and still want more and more

Our seas are dying, islands of plastic and rapidly dropping fish populations

The idea that some people are perfectly comfortable with a house full of assault weapons while supporting the ban of abortions. Murder, mass shootings, and massacres don't bother them but don't you dare touch that embryo!

Religious extremists of all types. Just be a good person goddammit, believe in whatever god you choose but stop trying to impose your beliefs on others.

Income inequality, the rich cheating the poor, huge tax cuts and reduction in essential services

And on and on. I used to think there were more smart, good people than bad, now I think the worst. For every human action there seems to be a criminal reaction. Witness the deluge of phone scams and identity theft, credit card fraud, and white collar crime. From top to bottom one can find corruption. How will the earth survive humans? Maybe we'll be extinct soon from our own willful ignorance and hypocrisy.

Where I live there is a mandatory mask requirement. Went to Krogers. Probably 20 percent were not wearing masks. And some were even coughing into the air.. This is never going away. It just ain't. And the Trump Cult Members won't comply. There is no punishment for the Anti-Vaxxers---that is the first problem. Ban them from stores. Ban them from Restaurants. When they get hungry or need beer they will get vaccinated.

The Trumpist anti-vaxx plan--just let everybody catch Covid as quickly as possible so they'll develop herd immunity and the pandemic will be over sooner--has run into a few bumps. Such as, herd immunity is apparently not a thing with a virus that's mutating this quickly into forms that are easier to catch, can be carried and transmitted by asymptomatic and even vaccinated people, and is currently working its way through the (mostly unvaxxinated) entire 7.7 billion population of Earth.

I was toward the “very careful” end of the spectrum during pre-vaccine covid times, and for a while when Delta started rearing its head.

Yes, it was put in effect on August 19th for outdoor events with gatherings of over 5000 (i think) people. I had tickets for the Mets/Dodgers game the day it went into effect. No one bothered.

T-Mobile Park in Seattle also mandated masks for everyone at the all the games about 10 days ago. Every game I've watched, I see maybe 13 of spectators wearing them. I'm sure some have them off to eat or drink, but I'm seeing a lot of lumps sitting there doing nothing but mouth breathing with their masks off. No one is enforcing this.

I have a friend who took Moderna after getting J&J (after being told by her doctor that the J&J probably didn’t work because she hadn’t gone off methotrexate for long enough before the shot.) She just walked into a pharmacy and they did it. And my parents have a friend who got J&J who did something similar. I know less of the details on that one, but I think it was Pfizer and she might have only done the one shot, and not the two shot series)

I went to the doctor the other day about a flu shot since in Eastern Europe only family doctors can give it to you and (fun) you have to buy the actual vial at the pharmacy and take it there. I signed up for the booster with Pfizer and she said to check my antibodies and THEN go. Apparently, if your antibodies are sufficient, you can delay it even 9 months.

FYI Dutchie @R26, she is a compatriot of yours married to a brilliant (and INSANELY hot) psychiatrist here. She isn't much to look at, but is incredibly intelligent and has published a lot. She suggested testing antibodies once a month and Vitamin D3 checks (mine is low, so I need to go on an 8 month plan of taking 6000 IU for 2 months, 4000 IU for another 2 and so on).

I told her about your "combo" and she said that the efficacy/safety of combos is still being studied and not allowed yet in Romania. I can't imagine how she can stand being here with a 8.5/1000 infection rate, 30% vaccination and the ICU's at 98%. My roommate ran into a friend who gave her a jolly big hug and then said "oh...had the flu last week...one test came back positive for COVID and another negative". We both got tested like crazy and we are negative (than God). It does, however, show you the level of disregard for the virus present in the developing world. Can't even imagine the 3rd world. So yeah, I am pessimistic.

It’s a vaccine that works by using an infectious, but not dangerous, virus that is incapable of making copies of itself to carry the vaccine information into cells. The chicken egg vaccine I’ve been harping on for over a year is an example. It carries a cool artificial spike protein.

Covid's Two-Month Cycle (from NYT)

Covid-19 is once again in retreat.

[quote] The reasons remain somewhat unclear, and there is no guarantee that the decline in caseloads will continue. But the turnaround is now large enough — and been going on long enough — to deserve attention.

[quote] The number of new daily cases in the U.S. has fallen 35 percent since Sept. 1:

[quote] Worldwide, cases have also dropped more than 30 percent since late August. “This is as good as the world has looked in many months,” Dr. Eric Topol of Scripps Research wrote last week.

[quote] These declines are consistent with a pattern that regular readers of this newsletter will recognize: Covid’s mysterious two-month cycle. Since the Covid virus began spreading in late 2019, cases have often surged for about two months — sometimes because of a variant, like Delta — and then declined for about two months.

[quote] Epidemiologists do not understand why. Many popular explanations, like seasonality or the ebbs and flows of social distancing, are clearly insufficient, if not wrong. The two-month cycle has occurred during different seasons of the year and occurred even when human behavior was not changing in obvious ways....

[quote] ‘The last major wave’?

[quote] Eventually, immunity will become widespread enough that another wave as large and damaging as the Delta wave will not be possible. “Barring something unexpected,” Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former F.D.A. commissioner and the author of “Uncontrolled Spread,” a new book on Covid, told me, “I’m of the opinion that this is the last major wave of infection.”

[quote] Covid also isn’t going to disappear anytime soon. It will continue to circulate for years, many scientists believe. But the vaccines can transform Covid into a manageable disease, not so different from a flu or common cold. In the past few weeks, the country appears to have moved closer to that less grim future.

New Zealand admits it can no longer get rid of coronavirus

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand’s government acknowledged Monday what most other countries did long ago: It can no longer completely get rid of the coronavirus.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a cautious plan to ease lockdown restrictions in Auckland, despite an outbreak there that continues to simmer.

Since early in the pandemic, New Zealand had pursued an unusual zero-tolerance approach to the virus through strict lockdowns and aggressive contact tracing.

Until recently, that elimination strategy had worked remarkably well for the country of 5 million, which has reported just 27 virus deaths.

While other nations faced rising death tolls and disrupted lives, New Zealanders went back to workplaces, school yards and sports stadiums safe from any community spread.

But that all changed when the more contagious delta variant somehow escaped from a quarantine facility in August after it was brought into the country from a traveler returning from Australia.

Despite New Zealand going into the strictest form of lockdown after just a single local case was detected, it ultimately wasn’t enough to crush the outbreak entirely.

One factor may have been that the disease spread among some groups that are typically more wary of authorities, including gang members and homeless people living in transitional housing.

The outbreak has grown to more than 1,300 cases, with 29 more detected on Monday. A few cases have been found outside of Auckland.

Ardern said that seven weeks of lockdown restrictions in Auckland had helped keep the outbreak under control.

“For this outbreak, it’s clear that long periods of heavy restrictions has not got us to zero cases,” Ardern said. “But that is OK. Elimination was important because we didn’t have vaccines. Now we do, so we can begin to change the way we do things.”

New Zealand began its vaccination campaign slowly compared to most other developed nations. Rates rocketed in August after the outbreak began but have dropped off significantly again since then.

About 65% of New Zealanders have had at least one dose and 40% are fully vaccinated. Among people age 12 and older, about 79% have had at least a single jab.

Under Ardern’s plan that starts Tuesday, Aucklanders will be able to meet outdoors with loved ones from one other household, early childhood centers will reopen and people will be able to go to the beach.

The dates for a phased reopening of retail stores and later bars and restaurants have yet to be decided.

Ardern said the elimination strategy had served the country incredibly well but the government always intended to eventually transition to the protection of vaccines, a change hastened by the delta variant “game changer.”

The government’s elimination approach had been broadly supported by New Zealanders but was facing increasing criticism. Over the weekend, hundreds of people turned out to rallies protesting the lockdown.

Opposition lawmaker Chris Bishop said the government had no clear strategy to deal with the outbreak other than total surrender.

But Ardern said that most measures would remain in place to keep the outbreak under control, including exhaustive contact tracing and isolating those who got infected. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––

“There’s good cause for us to feel optimistic about the future,” Ardern said. “But we cannot rush.”

There was a program on NPR on Sunday that had a story about a British man who contracted CV-19, and despite many treatments, had something like 6-10 mutations of the virus in his body at any given time. When one treatment was given, the main CV virus was suppressed, but the other variants took over. I forget what the first 2 treatments were, but he had 2 infusions of convalescent plasma and then ultimately died.

I just don't understand why these studies are coming out that the vaccine wanes dangerously after 4 months and yet most people can't get boosters. All this is going to do is get us right back where we were a year ago. Vaccines are going to waste, yet they keep withholding. This is fucking insanity. And the lowered efficacy has little to do with Delta. I have a booster and now I'm worried I got it too early (Aug 25). I can't keep diving under the bed every four months until everyone gets their fucking stories straight and decides we need another booster, but I sure as shit don't feel terribly protected right now.

Whirlpool will pay workers $1,000 to get vaccinated

From CNN’s Matt Egan

Whirlpool is offering to pay workers who get vaccinated $1,000.

The new vaccine incentive, confirmed by Whirlpool to CNN, shows how companies are trying to encourage reluctant workers to get vaccinated.

This vaccine bonus comes as the Biden administration prepares an emergency rule that will require large companies, like Whirlpool, to ensure their entire workforce is vaccinated or subject them to weekly testing. Biden officials say companies that violate this rule could face fines of up to $14,000 per violation.

Whirlpool was already offering employees a smaller vaccine incentive but rolled out the $1,000 incentive last week.

Chad Parks, a company spokesperson, said the stepped-up vaccine bonus will apply to workers who were previously vaccinated as well as newly vaccinated ones. He declined to say how much the previous incentive was for.

“Our employees' health and safety remains our top priority,” Whirlpool said in a statement. “Throughout this pandemic they have been working tirelessly to serve our consumers, who are depending on our products more than ever to clean, cook and provide proper food and medicine storage in their homes, and we are working to ensure we can deliver.”

The $1,000 vaccine incentive by Whirlpool matches one launched earlier this summer by Vanguard, one of the world’s largest asset managers. Vanguard’s $1,000 incentive applies to the company’s roughly 16,500 US employees who show proof of vaccination by Oct. 1.

A number of other companies have offered more modest incentives to get vaccinated. Kroger has said vaccinated employees will get a one-time payment of $100, while Bolthouse Farms offered a $500 bonus.

Research “absolutely” shows masking lowers Covid-19 outbreaks in schools, CDC director says

From CNN’s Virginia Langmaid)

Available data supports masking in schools to prevent Covid-19 and does not indicate that masking in school poses a risk to children, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Monday.

Responding to a question from NBC’s Hoda Kotb on whether there is anything about masking in schools parents should have a “real worry about,” Walensky said, “We have not seen any science that defends that point of view.”

“What I can say is that we’ve started to see even this month data from Los Angeles County, that rates in children are three and a half times higher in areas that have not practiced the mitigation strategies compared to those that are. So with the purpose of keeping our kids in school, getting them in school, having them be safe, masks really are the way to go," she said.

Walensky said data does show that masking in schools can reduce school closures.

“We have seen data after data that have demonstrated that schools that are not masking are closing because they’re having outbreaks. Schools from Georgia we saw last year had 37% less closure, less outbreaks, when they use masks,” she said.

“I would say that data actually absolutely show that masking decreases outbreaks in schools," she added.

Not true. I made an appointment at my local CVS for the Moderna vaccine, walked in and the only question they asked was was it my first or second shot? I said first and they gave me the shot. (I was 5 1/2 months out from my original J&J vaccine but I didn’t mention that part.)

The previous day I had gone into a different pharmacy asking for a booster of Moderna, showed them my J&J vaccine card and they said no, it “wasn’t approved.” My takeaway: anyone can get a booster regardless of being technically ‘eligible,’ you just have to lie. (Actually I didn’t really LIE, I just omitted certain things. It was my first shot…of Moderna.)

by Anonymousreply 83October 12, 2021 1:24 AM

The reason why the most deaths occurred among the vaccinated is because the state as whole is highly vaccinated. 88% of Vermonters have had at least one dose; 79% have had two doses. I’m guessing most of the people who died were elderly.

Guess what: when a population is ONE HUNDRED percent vaccinated, do you know how many of the deaths would be among the vaccinated? That’s right, 100%.

I was at the Dave Chapelle show at the Hollywood Bowl on Thursday which is an outdoor venue and it required vax certs to get in. I was walking back to my car in a packed crowd without a mask. I KNOW!! I have been so good throughout this entire thing. Saturday I started feeling off - very tired, but I had a long week last week so wrote it off. Saturday night were the sweats. Yesterday, it came and went. Today, I stayed in bed all day. What I feel like are the exact same symptoms of the vax. Low fever, tired, slept 9 hours last night. I am not coughing and I am starting to feel better. I'll get the test tomorrow so I know for sure. I'm just feeling tired and slightly feverish. I'm hoping that the vaccine is working. It feels like it is.

I flew today for the first time since Covid reared its ugly head. JetBlue, in Mint, in a row where there was only one seat.

I took an Uber Black to the airport. Driver was great, car was big enough that I felt safe. He kept his mask on the whole time and kept is window partially open and invited me to do the same. Checking bags and getting through security took five minutes. I sat in a different area of the airport than my gate so as to avoid people, but I saw a LOT of people without their masks or slung down under their noses.

Boarding was fine. The FAs warned everyone in advance that they were NOT on board to play and to please not give them any reason to bounce anyone off the flight. There was a pre-boarding announcement that they had not received any pillows or blankets for Mint and to please not take it out on the FAs, as it wasn't their fault. (At the last minute, they actually arrived).

I told my FA that I did not want anything to eat or drink and that I would likely just sleep most of the flight and not bother them. Both Mint FAs were incredibly nice. I felt like I was overdoing things (wearing gloves when I had to go to the restroom, etc) but two women who were in the row in front of me were wearing face shields, as well as masks, and they basically wiped down everything with Clorox wipes when they got to their seats.

Flight was uneventful. Baggage claim wasn't terrible, but again, lots of people with their masks pulled down. I hired a car to bring me into the city, so I waited to be picked up at the curb. Also uneventful and fine.

Got into the city and that's where it all went to shit. My AirBnB is a 3rd floor walkup and I had very heavy bags. I was huffing and puffing like crazy by the time I got to the last bag, and whatever oxygen I was inhaling like it was going out of style was leaking in and out of my masks everywhere. Then the host was still there, unmasked, and yakking up a storm. I had to take my mask off because I couldn't breathe at that point, and I was sweating like crazy. He left, I unpacked and showered, but all the precautions I take back home feel like they flew out the window in record time.

by Anonymousreply 113October 13, 2021 5:53 AM

Why would you do AirBnB with whatever scum of the earth might be sliming up the place up until the minute you arrive instead of using a reputable hotel chain where there's at least a decent chance that they've cleaned the place at this pointY

This is what is driving me crazy with all of this continuing. You can do everything right and then one little mistake and you're fucked. We should be allowed to start killing assholes who don't wear masks. It would make the human face a billion times better.

Well, for one reason, I'm here for two months, it's not just a vacation, so I wanted an apartment with a kitchen. But I did consider a hotel suite with a kitchenette (The Pod Hotel on 42nd street has very nice ones) but then I thought- Maids will be coming in and out of the room on a daily basis, and I'll have to get lost when they come, and who knows what they have? And I'll have to ride up and down in the elevators on several occasions daily with all manner of tourist that may or may not be vaccinated. It seemed an AirBnB was the lesser risk.

I’m not saying you should feel comfortable having a stranger spit down your throat or anything, but lots of us here in NYC have ridden the subway (even when the train cars are crowded), taken Ubers, been around unmasked people, etc., and have not gotten sick.

I’ve been fully vaccinated since May, never had Covid, haven’t gotten a breakthrough infection, shop in supermarkets (even unmasked when that was briefly a thing, pre-Delta!), and take about 2 dozen subway rides every week.

R113 here. I went out last night in NYC to meet my co-worker for an outdoor dinner and then a friend for coffee (also outdoors). When I was getting ready to leave the apartment I'm staying in, I was actually shaking, and I had to sit and calm myself for a minute. I was really surprised at the reaction. Walking in the streets with a mask on is not pleasant. Very sweaty (also my body was adjusting to the humidity). Had my mask off throughout dinner and also coffee, but kept it on while walking the streets. Also stopped in to a drug store to do some shopping (another first, not counting my Covid vaxes).

All in all, I felt okay and I was actually happy to be out and about and social. And I ran into a good number of people on the street I hadn't seen in ages (the theater district on a Wednesday) and for a short time it felt like it did B.C. It really lightened me in a way that I haven't felt in a very long while. Of course, now I have to strap on the mask again today and go into an indoor meeting, and tonight I have to go to a theater gathering (for work) indoors, so who knows how I'll be. I just worry that I'll get careless and BOOM! Covid City.

Thank you for listening. : )

Here in Ireland all legal restrictions are expected to be lifted by October 22nd. This has already happened in the UK (where I went to a packed club night, without masks, several weeks ago).

The university where I teach still requires students to wear masks and socially distance by 1metre at least but next week is expected to be the last week we will do this.

We can do this because over 90% of the eligible population chose to be vaccinated.

So, for me I think it is nearly over, barring some awful new variant. It's been a very hard road and cost me one close family member., as well as over a year of my rapidly vanishing youth. Very pleased to see the back of this awful time.

[quote]A key advisory committee to the Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously on Thursday to recommend a booster shot of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine for many of the vaccine’s recipients, at least six months after a second dose.

[quote] The panel endorsed a half-dose as a third injection for people 65 and older as well as younger adults at high risk because of their medical conditions or jobs, the same groups of people who became eligible for a Pfizer-BioNTech booster last month. While regulators are not obligated to follow the panel’s recommendations, they typically do.

[quote] Although committee members decried the lack of more robust data justifying a booster shot, several emphasized that F.D.A. had already sent a precedent by authorizing additional shots on an emergency basis for many recipients of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

TSA says 40 percent of workforce unvaccinated ahead of November deadline

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 149October 15, 2021 1:26 PM

A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) official said in an interview published on Wednesday that 40 percent of the TSA's workforce remains unvaccinated ahead of a Nov. 22 deadline set by the Biden administration.

Speaking to CNN, TSA Administrator David Pekoske said he was "very hopeful" that his agency's employees would meet the deadline, but said that "contingency plans" were in development in case some employees are unable to work who are not vaccinated in time.

"We have about 60 percent of our workforce has been vaccinated, that that number needs to go quite a bit higher over the next few weeks," Pekoske told CNN. "We are building contingency plans for if we do have some staffing shortages as a result of this, but I hope to avoid that."

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is administered three weeks apart, leaving workers a bit of leeway, unless they decide to instead get the one-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. CNN noted the latest possible date that federal employees can get the Pfizer vaccine is Oct. 18.

In a memo sent out earlier this month, the the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) said federal agencies could begin enforcing the vaccine mandate beginning on Nov. 9 for employees who are still not vaccinated.

"Employees who refuse to be vaccinated or provide proof of vaccination are subject to disciplinary measures, up to and including removal or termination from Federal service," OPM Director Kiran Ahuja said. "The only exception is for individuals who receive a legally required exception pursuant to established agency processes."

The big problem is that people don't trust Putin and are won't get vaccinated for that reason. It is hard to blame them as the Russian vaccine is very effective put Putin has such a shitty record.

They hit their highest deadly deaths yesterday of 998. There are also well over 400,00 excess deaths.
