Is the CDC not in Biden's pocket this week?  Or was that last week?  It's all so confusing :/

CDC recommends resumption of J&J vaccinations
If you're confused following this stuff, imagine the average guy on the street.

... the coronavirus survivors had a significantly higher risk of death in the six months following their recovery, even those whose symptoms were considered mild and did not require hospitalization...

More panic-porn: once you are infected, you are doomed for life (very short life), so obey your Fürer, vaccinate, but still put 2-3 masks and still stay home.

If this variant spreads elsewhere, we could be starting this all over again.  Considering how crowded India is, I was surprised they were able to keep the rates down so long.

India’s daily coronavirus cases climb to new world record as hospitals buckle
India’s coronavirus infections rose by 346,786 overnight, the health ministry said on Saturday, setting a new world record for the third consecutive day, as overwhelmed hospitals in the densely-populated country begged for oxygen supplies.

India is in the grip of a rampaging second wave of the pandemic, hitting a rate of one COVID-19 death in just under every four minutes in Delhi as the capital’s underfunded health system buckles.

The government has deployed military planes and trains to get oxygen from the far corners of the country to Delhi. Television showed an oxygen truck arriving at Delhi’s Batra hospital after it issued an SOS saying it had 90 minutes of oxygen left for its 260 patients.

India surpassed the U.S. record of 297,430 single-day infections anywhere in the world on Thursday, making it the global epicenter of a pandemic that is waning in many other countries. The Indian government had itself declared it had beaten back the coronavirus in February when new cases fell to all time lows.

Health experts said India became complacent in the winter, when new cases were running at about 10,000 a day and seemed to be under control, lifting restrictions that allowed for the resumption of big gatherings.

Others said that it could also be a more dangerous variant of the virus coursing through the world’s second most populous country where people live in close proximity, often six to a room.

Compared with over 279,000 US daily cases in January, India's numbers per capita don't look as critical yet. If it gets there as bad as in January in USA, India will be reporting a million cases per day.

Yeah you're right.  What's 347,000 cases a day?

Moving along.  CDC said 139 million people had received at least one dose while 93 million people had been fully vaccinated as of today. That's 28% of all Americans who got both.  And 42% who got one shot. There are 330 million Americans.

Personal attack. This is the place we want to avoid.
Retract, reframe, or focus on something / someone else.

Josh
You of all people could do something about that; CLOSE this Coffee Corner forum, attempt to move LuLa back to a photograph only location and delete all non photo discussions like your dad setup long ago. Focus on something? How about solely photo topics?
Your advertising may drop due to traffic reductions.
I've posted on this thread a lot; I'm fine if it all disappears. Seem you're not. Or you can defend and explain this forums existence including site traffic....
This thread may contain sewage but it is in the appropriate spot, near the bottom, and for many/most users not even on the radar. We can return to zero politics if the hand-full of those engaging here all agree that it will clean up the site (?)
We all agree? Site run by committee? After all these pages from this group, your say this seriously???

AFAIK, all photography topics which might appeal to you are still there and can be easily accessed without going through this thread.

More good news in the US:

Prognosis
The End of U.S. Mass Vaccination Is Coming Sooner Than Later

Rates of shots are falling as the campaign passes its peak
After three months of vaccination across the U.S., a majority of American adults have gotten shots, and the effort will soon shift from mass inoculation to mop-up.

As of Saturday, 138.6 million people in the U.S. have received at least one Covid-19 vaccine shot. About 1.3 million more are getting a first dose every day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While the rate of new vaccinators is declining, even if were immediately cut in half, it would mean that six weeks from now more than half of the population of the U.S. and its territories will have had a dose.

Almost all of those who get a first dose are likely to their second, according to one CDC study. On top of that, more than 80% of people age 60 or over — the most vulnerable group — have had a dose and will likewise complete vaccination.

How relevant is that question? I was talking about his request for a future action, not the history.

Apparently, Dr. Fauxi is coming to his senses. Or more precisely, to his common sense. He has finally realized what some of us have been saying for ages, that masks outside just don’t make much sense. He is now saying that it is a common sense. Well, doctor, duh!

More on Faucism:

Fauci said there's no problem with Covid on 1/26/20.  Despite that, Trump shut down travel from China on 1/31/20, five days later, yet was criticized months later for not acting quick enough.  Biden called him xenophobic. Democrats called him racist.  Afterward, the press made it seem he did nothing to help the spread and they claimed the experts had it right all along. 

Now we have the obverse.  The press's pal Biden's mistakes are ignored by the sycophantic press as they protect everything he does.  This is why no one believes the experts, the press, or the politicians.

Here's an interesting tidbit from the Covid front lines in Montreal area hospital. Partway down this article, a care worker talks about the difficulty of treating patients with Covid who don't "believe" in Covid, https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/montreal-hospital-icu-patients-deniers-1.6002111. As if things weren't difficult enough.

As usual, you are not being honest.

Quote
Newsmax interview

On Jan. 21 - the day the first covid-19 case in the U.S. was confirmed - Fauci appeared on conservative Newsmax TV. "Bottom line, we don’t have to worry about this one, right?" asked Greg Kelly, the host.

Fauci said, "Obviously, you need to take it seriously and do the kind of things the (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the Department of Homeland Security is doing. But this is not a major threat to the people of the United States and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about."

So Fauci, in a qualified response said, don't worry "right now;" "you need to take it seriously;" and although "this is not a major threat,"  keep an ear open to the CDC and Homeland Security.

It was not a major threat at the time, but it did evolve and was mismanaged by the Trump administration.

A distinction without a difference.  I deliberately gave the dates to show that only five days after Fauci said "...But this is not a major threat to the people of the United States and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.", Trump stopped all travel from China.  That's not mismanagement?   Your "right now" are weasel words.   Fauci wasn't concerned.  Did he call for a freeze on travel?  More so, Biden and the democrats called Trump xenophobic and a racist for stopping Chinese travel. You're the one not being honest.
