            I wouldn't wish the results of poor planning and management on the peasants.

              • France removed COVID restrictions and since then new cases have spiked. Germany and Italy, who have not removed them, as also spiking.

                Hospitalizations are not going up. Yet. French politicians are starting to act awfully defensive.

                    Welll, that was when the herd (the intelligent herd) were still taking precautions- masking being the biggest. I expect to see an increase in not good things now the advice/messaging is not promoting any sort of safety measures at all. Consider you have sig increase in people moving around the country (many from Orange Grove/Red counties), less protective measures, less caution and in many places less availability of testing sites. NH closed all its sites.

Young vaxed people are fine, just fine, so who cares about the rest?

                        Not serious so much as asking for clarification since most things I see out of Hong Kong don't seem to scream "peasant" to me.

                            Hong Kong has roughly the same demographics as every other big city out there.

                                Definitely understand that. I don't mean to be callous.

                                Reading the data, between spring behavior and the fact that most of the US was absolutely smashed by BA.1, I don't anticipate BA.2 being a serious threat. The countries (and local communities here) currently dealing with BA.2 waves either mostly avoided BA.1 or only got partially hit.

                                I may be too hopeful on this, but I'm just so tired of bad news.
