    Mind you I don't believe the vast majority of skepticism out there on the virus. I am just sick and tired of COVID shaming. The crackpots yes. However just because one is a bit nervous or has some skepticism doesn't mean they are ignorant. Again in our society everything is black and white. No shades of gray

    I'm tired of covid shaming, I'm tired of covid, I'm just tired. Covid fatigue is what people are saying ended up being the cause of the huge surge in California. I get it.

    Megan McCain has come out saying she was disappointed in some of the maskless pictures that were taken with the Biden family. Everyone who came in close contact with either Biden or Harris was subjected to testing. and Biden and Harris have been vaccinated.

    This one event which turned from a huge public celebration to basically us looking in on a family celebration after the inauguration, and it was done as safely as possible

    There were some moments where people got caught up in the moment....a maskless Garth Brooks hugging everyone etc.

    But there are going to little mess ups...it's why family gatherings are so dangerous, they become complacent and relaxed when among family.

    As for me, I've been pretty vigilant but I'm going to be stepping up my wearing of a mask, which I wasn't doing on out door work sites or where I could be 10 feet apart. I have found that others don't respect that and I'm tired of stepping back all the time just to have someone follow me around. Back off Jack! Now cases and deaths are climbing and from the looks of things its going to be 2022 before our local health department has enough vaccines to get to everybody and by then we are going to be dealing with some other variant.

    I'm beginning to feel like this is never going to end.

    Where the former head of Operation Warp Speed says the states simply never mentioned they didnít have the resources to immunize people in the volume they were being shipped.

    I find this claim to be doubtful.

    One thing that gets me is the number of people that yell “wear the damn mask!” spend so little time on the other aspects of protection.. Like making sure that you’re getting the nutrients to keep yourself healthy.

    I mean, of all the people I know whom have had the virus... I got some of the least issues.

    This despite being 40, diabetes, high blood pressure, weight 291 (used to be 401), not so great kidneys... And I had Asthma as a kid.

    Chills was the worst symptom I had.

    I took about 20,000 IU of VD3, Vitamin C and ate lots of meat for zinc.

    Many only complain about the masks though.

    Speaking of supplements... Why canít we get tablets that have higher doses of potassium than 99mg?

    Potassium is one of the most important nutrients, but you can only get low dosage tablets.

    Default 2020 CoronaVirus Outbreak - That began in Wuhan, China and is spreading

    Obviously itís going to take a very long time to get it to be minimal. That happens with all diseases like this. I canít imagine anyone but a stupid person was thinking it was magically just going to disappear because a vaccine was brought out. Itís here and itís going to be here for a long time. The important part is for us to build up a level of immunity to it so that its effects arenít as drastic.

    Measles virus becomes less effective if it mutates. So this was never going to disappear like that.

    If there is a comparison to the flu, itís that there will likely be mutations, but that doesnít mean the vaccine wonít be effective against it.

    If you can either prevent disease or keep it mild in nearly all people, which the flu vaccine does, even if geared towards a different strain, you get past the pandemic part.

    What we need now is to get as many shots in as many arms as possible to get it under control. THEN it becomes a yearly maintenance thing.

    The exciting thing about the Moderna vaccine, if the FDA can keep up with the tech, is you just need the genetic sequence and you splice it in. That vaccine was made in two days over a year ago. Going forward, you could possibly really fine tune the vaccine by looking at regional mutations and targeting versions of the virus even more closely than the flu vaccine does.

    I saw an article a while back saying that variants could actually be good news. It's possible, and there is already some evidence of this, that new variations will be super-contagious but not nearly as deadly. In that sense, it would becomes more like colds and flu. Dangerous in some cases but much more manageable with vaccines in place and herd immunity gradually increasing your chances of beating it. 'Course, that's speculative.

    There are over 200 vaccines still in development, some of which have shifted their focus towards the different variants of Covid-19.

    The masks are so much easier to deal with in Winter, as opposed to Summer.
    I don't even really notice them on my face, anymore.

    It hit 18 degrees tonight with wind, and i had my dual layer, plaid
    cotton mask, which acted as a face warmer.

    My Frankie striped mask with the filter in it is very uncomfortable. Hard to talk with all the shit in front of your mouth. Plus it's too flashy to wear at work. Draws attention I don't need.
