    And right now, most infections and deaths are pretty much by choice. Not all- a lot of people can't get vaccinated.

    But it was pretty hard to see a report of a woman who had gotten infected and hospitalized twice, and is just 'considering' getting the vaccine.

      I’m not sure how true that is. I’d be very interested in seeing data on breakthrough infections strictly for the last couple of weeks.

        Vaccinated people might be getting the virus, but it is mostly manageable and more (ironically) flu-like. Deaths are almost all unvaccinated. Nearly every story and every expert agrees on this from what I have seen since Delta started spreading.

        Restrictions won't happen again even in the Bluest of Blue States/cities. People are done with it and in truth you cannot expect the responsible to be punished to protect the stupid. At this point those who will take the precautions already have and we have sacrificed enough for a bunch of morons who believe we are magnetic and getting sweet 5G service. Fuck them. They can go into hiding we already did our part to protect everyone.

        I will wear a mask when needed but shut downs are not possible anymore.

        • I’m just hoping I get hazard pay again when the isolation unit opens up in my hospital again this fall/winter. What sucks is the patients will probably be a lot sicker than most of them were the last time around.

          • 1. It's not going to be as bad. 70% are vaccinated.
            2. Viruses tend to evolve into more contagious, less dangerous variants. There's no extensive evidence Delta is any more (or less) dangerous than the others.
            3. We've learned an assload on treatment. That will only improve.
            4. We have treatments (not just vaccines) in development that last I checked, Pfizer expects around December.
            5. The virus is extremely unlikely to evolve into something g that totally evades the vaccine. The vaccine targets the "crown". Unless the coronavirus suddenly drops its corona, it's going to be hard to evade this completely. And, as one of the big med journals said, if it changes that much it is likely to lose everything that makes it easy to catch.

              Well, the data I'm seeing is that +99% of the deaths are unvaccinated. I've also seen headlines that vaccinated are less likely to spread delta, too. So when there is real data showing a problem for the vaccinated, I'll get worried then.

                Hospitalized, also, I believe.

                So, 99%+ of those sick enough to be hospitalized haven't been vaccinated.

                For those who have been vaccinated, and get a breakthrough case, in most instances it really is just like having the flu, as the wingnuts' have been screaming about for the past year.

                  And for healthy people getting Covid it’s really like just being healthy. You know the no symptoms “cases.”

                    Mostly agreed, other than to add that I do feel bad for those who legitimately can't be vaccinated and who may have to continue to isolate as local/regional flare-ups occur.

                        On the other hand, if dumpy wants to have some nazi rallies, Missouri seems like a nice state.

                          • Positive tests on the Yankees, causing tonight's Sox-Yankees game to be postponed. Rumor is Aaron Judge is one of the positive cases. All five members of the Red Sox that were at the All Star Game with him are being give extra testing. Or something. I'm surprised it took this long to happen.
