You joke but my wife and I were laughing because we almost forgot our 3 year old broke her femur at the beginning of last year. Because a 2 year old in diapers with a broken femur and spicca cast was not the most memorable part of 2020.Its been rough for awhile, but we should look to the future...
The WHO was warning about problematic mutants popping up before the end of the year if we didn't put enough effort into getting everybody everywhere vaccinated. At least the current vaccines seem to still offer quite a bit of protection from this delta variant. I want my second shot, dammit!Well crap. I thought we just about to be out of this. Screw you delta!
FWIW I got my second shot scheduled for July 27. So it's not that people aren't getting their second shots, it's that they started opening up stuff before the majority had gotten them.Everyone except maybe imaginary countries like New Zealand are finding creative ways to screw up. From the US "I have the chance to get vaccinated but I won't because I'll grow a chicken head" to Brazil's "lalal-
a la this doesn't exist! Don't mind the bodies over there!" To Europe's "Let's just get one shot in and figure it out later"
I know those are gross oversimplifications but no one* seems to be handling it as well as they should be.
For our daily stand-up, I have changed my Teams background to the scene in X-Men First Class, where Wolverine meets Xavier and Erik.I have come to loathe scrum masters and daily standup meetings with the fiery passion of 1000 suns.
I'm glad I bought a really nice mask a year ago, feels like I'll be using it for the next millennia.Folks bad news. New CDC report is saying this Delta is as contagious or more than Measles. The big unknown is how well its getting through vaccinations (between 3-30% I'm reading) but it's getting through and vaccinated folks are passing it along.
Be safe out there and wear a mask please. Don't think the vaccine makes you invulnerable.
I hate to say it but if you can prepare yourself for a redo of 2020.
I start teaching students in about week. 30 plus 17+ year olds who already know if all and we've relaxed all our covid restrictions (no masks, students sat in groups, the whole campus is open!)
How long before I catch it?
The under 12 is a big group for me. It's all four of my kids. This year is worse than last not only because the delta is much more transmissible. This year unlike last a lot the people who are vaccinated think they are invincible just the like idiots who wouldn't wear any mask last year. The difference is they're actually pretty close to correct. They are unlikely to have a severe reaction. So they tend to be going back to life as normal. That was pretty true for 15-45 year olds last year but we asked them to all lock down to protect the elderly. This year people without young kids seem done. It feels more dangerous than ever for my kids.Pretty much everyone over 12 here has had a chance to get fully vaccinated by now. AFAIAC any unvaccinated covidiots getting it now have no one but themselves to blame. Some exceptions for medical reasons, of course.
Fuck that's bad. I mean I hope you're vaccinated and if so then you personally are probably good. But if youre immunocompromised or have young children at home or old (80+)people who you see that's just balls.I start teaching students in about week. 30 plus 17+ year olds who already know if all and we've relaxed all our covid restrictions (no masks, students sat in groups, the whole campus is open!)
