The Next Pandemic: SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19


Recommended Posts

I'm starting to wonder how long this whole vaccination thing will take.  I did a little math.

 

There are approximately 330,000,000 people in America. 

 

70% of 330,000,000 is 231,000,000.

 

Everyone needs 2 shots, so 462,000,000 will need to be done.

 

President Biden promises to do 1,000,000 a day for 100 days.  (We've been doing approximately 1,000,000 per day the last 2 weeks.) Fauci says by September we should have it.

 

So that means we would have 100,000,000 done by May 1.  

 

That leaves 362,000,000 in the following 4 months.  Almost 4 times the amount of the first 100 days..

 

I hope it works (I want to be at the home opener) but the math is a little fuzzy at the moment.

Hello everyone, and I had the opportunity to visit Cassandra at Buffalo Children's today. As mentioned she is off the Ecmo machine and doing most of the work. It will take some time for her to heal. S

I have stayed away from this forum for a long time, and most know my politics...tonight was important for our country. Trump was up to it so far. Fantastic job.

No doubt but the highest risk people are off the board so hospitalization should go off a cliff soon. And add weather and summer will provide a deep repreive. 

 

In many states they have administered more doses than they recorded pcr positives. A meaningless but interesting milestone.

Don’t forget in that 365 M is kids who I don’t believe have been approved to get it yet.

Yes, isn’t it great that President Trump did the hard work of getting the private sector organized, mobilized and authorized to get us all a working vaccine so that President Biden can do the really tough job of taking all the credit for it. Nice job Joe!

Amazing accomplishment while his political enemies attempted to destroy him and incite violence by claiming the election was illegitimate.

Hard work is golfing in the eyes of republicans apparently.

You wanted President Trump to personally drop his vaccine at your house? You clearly have never run anything.

That's why the J&J vaccine is so important.  If their "one shot" vaccination is proved safe and approved they'll have at least 100 million doses available by June.  I'm hoping this thread is a distant memory by the end of this summer.

Joe Biden Revises Promise: Enough Vaccines for 300 Million Americans by Early Fall

 

President Joe Biden clarified Tuesday that he expected the delivery of enough vaccine doses for 300 million Americans by early fall.

 

On Monday, Biden told a reporter that enough vaccines would be available for every American who wanted one in the spring.

Can they just tell us please that mitigation distancing and all that means is indefinite. 

 

I can't take the looks on my kids faces anymore as I had to tell them AGAIN that we are still full virtual into March.  The Unions here are saying now the vaccine isn't enough.....the metrics are to high and its still in the community.  The teachers don't feel safe.  

 

School year is over.  That's it.  1 and 1/2 year of education gone.  And it's going to be the same ***t in September.  If you still don't understand this I want to know what you're smoking.

Again.  The J&J vaccine approval will most likely be the determining factor in whether we're back to life as normal by fall and I'm optimistic based off preliminary results.  I don't really understand this fatalistic attitude you have unless you're just venting.  I agree that schools should be fully open right now but am much more optimistic that they will be this fall.

The Biden Virus took another 4,000 American souls yesterday. A full week into his presidency and with months to prepare a response it appears the new President is incapable of slowing the spread or bending the curve. Nice job Joe!

Hang in there SoTear Deek! Joe knows not what he’s doing, let alone where he’s at.  They’ll figure it out by 2022ish, when Emperor Harris is installed.

I think it’s simply a reflection of a full year plus of restrictions for some but not for all, a reliance on the science mandated for some but not all, government fingers in the pie destroying some businesses and not others, and a recognition that the absolute safest place to be during this virus is to be In the employ of those pulling the lockdown strings.  Everyone else must fend for themselves. 
 

From a leadership perspective, a good start would be for Biden to implore teachers unions to do the right thing by the children and communities they serve to get the children back in school.   Or, appeal directly to the teachers to bypass the unions and show up to the classroom.  There are many, many teachers who believe it’s past time to do so, but are likely fearful of going against the grain. 
 

It’s difficult to be positive when your back is against the wall, your children are suffering and govt is dicking around.

The more we find out about Trump and how he tried to hide information from the people of America and the lack of anything he did to help is all that matters.

Exactly 

 

And there is no end in sight.  If they thought these vaccines were it, they'd be saying so.

 

I'll bet my house, life, everything that we are all still mitigating 6 feet for life sheep by March.....of 2022.  

 

It's simple.  

 

We have given the government the power to mitigate and shut us down if we had the numbers we had in August of 2020.  What were our percent positives as a country then?  5?  Cases at like 20K a day.  

 

And we were mitigating and closed.  

 

 

We are NEVER going to have less then 20K cases and hundreds of deaths a day for YEARS. 

 

Thus, mitigating, masks, distancing and everything that means.  Tell me why that's wrong.  We should be full open immediately.  You stay home till you get the vaccine.  That's it. 

 

People will not get the vaccine by choice.  And we aren't giving it to kids under 18 and 16.  How you eradicating the virus that have f....ing somehow ridiculously become the goal??

 

 

F....ing nightmare.  By CHOICE.  Because it's just freedom guys we need to look out for each other!!   No, we don't.  I need to look out for my kids and my family.  You go hide.  

 

Oh yea...and wait till the vaccinated start getting sick in January en masse bc immunity is only a year....we don't know.

The laws of man will never supercede the laws of nature, and the #1 law of nature is survival of the fittest. Covid isn't doing anything that nature hasn't already and always done. 

 

Stay frosty out there peoples

Why didn't Trump just order enough vaccines to begin with?

 

And why did he leave Biden with no execution plan?

I'd like to hear from them.  Looking at the school thing from a different perspective.  I've worked for a lot of years with teachers and they've been programmed to accept that they're going to get a virus/flu as a 1,000 kids in a building will spread virus rapidly each winter.  All new teachers will catch it within their first couple of years until they build up immunity.  So teachers have become conditioned to accept the fact that they're at higher risk than most for catching whatever bug is going around each winter.  However, with Covid being a more deadly virus for many teachers who fall in the "at risk" range I can understand why they're so hesitant to go back and the unions are fighting for them.  It's entrenched in their mind that schools are a virus petri dish and their likelihood of catching it is high.  Kids being less likely to catch it and spread isn't common knowledge unfortunately.  The unions will keep fighting until the kids and teachers are vaccinated unfortunately.  

 

I get that people come here to vent and many bring up good points about whether government is doing too much or not enough.  They're also looking for someone to blame for this disruption in our way of life and politicians are easy targets (both at a local and federal level).  My thinking is just do the best you can and focus on convincing as many people as you can to get the vaccine ASAP if it's available to you.  It's our only way out of this.
