Japans Lifts Nationwide State Of Emergency

“Abe told Japanese citizens to be prepared for a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and added that a state of emergency may have to be reintroduced if that were to happen. The prime minister added that border control will continue to be hardened as the virus continues to spread around the world.“

CMU researchers show most Twitter accounts tweeting about the coronavirus are bots

A few quotes:
Quote:
In a study that has gained recognition with national news outlets, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University found that much of the discussion on Twitter surrounding covid-19 is misinformation, fueled by bot accounts.

CMU researchers have collected more than 200 million tweets discussing coronavirus or covid-19 since January, according to a news release. Of the top 50 influential retweeters, 82% were bots. Of the top 1,000 retweeters, 62% were bots.

Honestly, all the more reason to tweet/discuss anything but this topic. You'll drive yourself insane and apparently argue with AI.

Quite shocking that only 52% want him sacked, which means that 48% believe it's OK or they don't care.

Hey, that vaccine we desperately need? Yeah, no, only half the U.S. wants it after all.

This is hopeless.

Well, that's the thing: they're not, and they won't. As Paul Krugman wrote referring to the fact that over 100,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the U.S., "the worst may be yet to come. If you aren't terrified by photos of large crowds gathering over Memorial Day weekend without either wearing masks or practicing social distancing, you haven't been paying attention".

By the way, even though the Dotard has said we're gonna have a vaccine very very soon, sooner than you think, a beautiful vaccine the likes of which other vaccines have never seen, I bet you my ultra-mint copy of 4 Tunna Brix that —whether he's still president or not— he'll then say he won't take it because he doesn't need it because he's a golden god. Motherfucker hasn't even told his dipshit followers to wash their fucking hands.

I absolutely would get vaccinated but perhaps in a tentative way. I'm not sure I'd rush out asap once one is announced, because to some extent, I want to allow at least a little more time to verify that there are no major side effects, at least ones that I would much rather avoid. However, once all clear, I'd absolutely go in for one.


It also makes me wonder how much of a mad rush there were for previous major diseases that eventually discovered vaccines and if there were some waiting periods as well.

Well, no responsible medical organization (which is to say none working specifically on a "product" for Trump, Boris, Modi or any of these FUCKS to take credit for) will put out a half-assed vaccine that hasn't been properly tested, with the side effects clearly stated "right there on the label". If the first safe one works only 60% of the time and gives you strong headaches for a week, hell, give it to me ASAP, what the fuck is there to wait for.

Now, HUGE caveat: access to the vaccine is the next real problem. Right now just getting a damn test is difficult - imagine what it will be like to get something that will protect you against the mother(fucker) of all pandemics. The World Health Organization is under attack: will there be enough international coordination so there is enough of it and all countries can receive it? Will countries have to BUY IT, will YOU have to buy it at big pharma prices? Will your insurance cover it? Will the uninsured be completely fucked? (Immediate yes to that question.) Will countries outside the "developed" world depend on Bill Gates and NGOs to fly in and save their people?

From Fareed Zakaria's Global Briefing:

Quote:
How to Turn the Economy On and Off

When it comes to Covid-19 economics, the relevant question isn’t whether to keep a lockdown in place or reopen in full, Zachary Karabell writes in Politico Magazine. Rather, it’s how to modulate business activity with more nuanced measures as the virus comes back in waves—how to turn the economy on and off sustainably, rather than stopping it wholesale in ways that make restarting difficult.

A few proposals have surfaced. "In Europe, a group of researchers spread over nine countries modeled multiple scenarios for how to confront a future surge,” Karabell notes. “The most effective strategy, according to their models, would be to alternate 50-day strict lockdowns followed by 30 days of opening, followed by more lockdowns as need be"—a strategy that might "reduce the risk of social breakdown" by giving everyone some certainty and a periodic break.

A group in Tel Aviv suggests having people “work in two-week cycles of four-day workweeks, followed by 10 days of voluntary quarantine. Schools would follow a similar pattern,” Karabell writes. “The logic is that even if people contracted the disease in that two-week period, the subsequent 10-day quarantine would reduce the infection rate in the larger society to below 1, which would in turn prevent wide-scale outbreaks.” Former Mitt Romney health-policy adviser Avik Roy has advocated letting Covid-19’s age distribution guide us; his proposal includes reopening K-12 schools, lifting stay-at-home orders for all but the elderly, and prioritizing testing in nursing homes.

Regardless of whose plan is best, Karabell’s point is that this is the discussion to be having. As Roy wrote in an April Wall Street Journal op-ed (from which Karabell quotes), “Instead of thinking up creative ways to force people to stay home, we should think hard every day about how to bring more people back to work.”

The state police said it will be an 8 hour wait from the back of the line to speak to a state employee about unemployment.

Ooh, that'd be a good second choice for a facemask. Also I heard a report from a friend that the Pleats on her Spaceballs the Face mask were backwards, so I may have to send back and get a refund.

Still haven't received my order of the Goo facemask

But as of July 1 we will have far less restrictions! Including this:

Quote:
Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced on Wednesday evening during a press conference that supporters will be welcome in the stadiums from 1 July. However, chants are forbidden and fans should sit at a distance of five feet. Some supporters' associations see the relaxation of the corona measures as a step in the right direction, but Rutte's message has not been well received everywhere.


"It is simple: if that does happen, it will close again," Rutte responded during the press moment to the question how he wants to maintain that there is no longer singing by supporters. "Take along those big horns that you can press when a goal is scored, and whisper 'hooray', but nothing more," said Rutte. "Why is it? It's not fun at all, but we now know from all studies that there is a good chance that the virus will spread if you sing or shout, for example."
Nobody understands this. We don't have football competition anyway but it also applies to other sports events or concerts. You can attend a concert , in seated venues with 1.5 meters distance from other people, but you're not allowed to sing along

Good. Last thing I want when I go to a gig is someone bellowing along badly next to me.
