And the mystery continues to twist and turn:

 

 

But of course after all that high-profile fanfare at the beginning of the article, towards the end there was also this snippet:

However, Anderson acknowledged that viruses can leak from laboratories when serious accidents occur. 

"I'm not naive enough to say I absolutely write this off," she told Bloomberg.

So in the end, it's an opinion piece that essentially gets no further down the path than from where it started.  At least, that's my takeaway from it.

 

I want my 5 mins back... :lol:

Plenty of people out there shouldn't be seen without clothing.. or less clothing. Cultus yesterday was a fine demonstration of that 

Is fine really the optimal word?

Pfizer squared.  Took longer to wait the 15 minutes after getting the shot than it took to go through and get my 2nd Pfizer dose.  

 

2 weeks until chip fully online.  :gocan:

It will be great!

I have been chipped for few months and don’t even carry a wallet anymore.

Just let them scan me and it’s all good, works at grocery stores, coffee shops, transportation etc.

@Ilunga I was reading some article today saying that only 4% of Australians are vaccinated.

Why such low numbers, lack of vaccines or lot of anti vaxers?

Our inept Federal government my friend.

These guys couldn't organise a $#@$ in a dunny.

The coalition that is in government is always fractious however a guy called Barnaby Joyce has taken back the leadership of the national party and is now our deputy PM.

If you want a good laugh do a bit of research on that turd.

To further elucidate as a nation we are probably at the worst point of the pandemic in regards to places being locked down.

 

Here in Melbourne we have just come out of a 2 week lockdown- only 4 reasons to leave home.

Sydney has gone into lockdown with dunny paper being sold out just like here in our last lockdowns in Melbourne.

Seems like people prioritise wiping their bum over everything else.

Brisbane-QLD is in lockdown.

Perth- WA is in lockdown.

South Australia is imposing stricter social restrictions.

Northern Territory has imposed lockdown.

 

There is confusion over which people can get which vaccination,with changing advice on the astrazeneca vaccine.

 

States are imposing border shutdowns.

 

A year and a half in and the only good thing to say is the last person to die from Covid was in April and only a handful of people in the last 6-8 months.

Scan fingers or forehead?  Or the spot of the shot?  Or do you just emit protein spikes enough so that your just a non stop scan that your like an auto wireless scan?

 

I gotta know!  I am only half chipped :( I did buy some MSFT stock after the first one thanks to daddy Gates, smart guy gets his stocks bought.

Even though we're double vaccinated, we're still wearing masks in public places, and will for a very long time. Our hairdresser said she is going to keep asking her customers to wear masks as well. Very good numbers though the person in their 20's is a reminder that no one is immune to this virus.

Let me guess, Conservative gov't, right?

Yep, me too.

 

My kids were here yesterday (they had to work and their place was unbearable so they hung out here all day).  They're only single vax'd so it was masks all day except when outside/apart.  In the sweltering heat inside it was tough, but it's a no brainer for me to make sure my kids are protected.  

 

I'll wear my Canucks masks to hockey games for awhile.  It's my new flag.

Was waiting for these numbers.

9 people that have been fully vaccinated have passed.

Video:

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/elections/9-people-have-died-from-covid-19-despite-having-received-a-second-dose/vi-AALyuax

 

 

 

About 0.2% of double dosers have passed away from covid

About 2.0% for single dosers have passed from covid.

 

This link, https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/a6f23959a8b14bfa989e3cda29297ded, when you divide deaths by positives shows about

1.18 % over all rate of mortality.-Vaccinations not accounted for.

 

anybody with some math skills able to break this down?

Things have apparently turned around up here in the North....

 

Yesterday I got a call from the hospital for an appointment with the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist.....an appointment that I've been waiting for for over two years...

 

In my last few doctor's visits, he decided to forego any lab tests, because of a potential for infection at the hospital. Now it seems like it's been cleared....

The anti vaxxers and anti maskers will not be vaccinated, and will be without masks.  And there is no way to tell if the person creeping up next to you is one of those selfish ones, is there?  

This would always happen at some point right?
