I am with Analogman, none of this is to be taken lightly.

This is not fear mongering, it's information sharing.

The risk of being infected without being vaccinated and the possibility of severe symptoms, hospitalization and or longterm effects is a strong enough repellent IMO. People that knowingly resist vaccination are leaving themselves vulnerable.

No more fighting, insulting or pointing fingers. I for one am sick and tired of restrictions being imposed then lifted then imposed again. This pattern can be avoided with a population well informed and participating in the fight. It really is like a war.

And they expose those who can’t be vaccinated more than necessary!

I'm thinking there's the problem right there.

In before this thread gets shut down like the other 5 or 6 or whatever before it.

I’m guessing page 73.

I think the surge here is peaking. Even when the numbers were going down the last time some local news outlets were switching the numbers around to bait views. 5954 cases became 9554 cases. Yesterday the New York times numbers were over 50k cases for the day. It was actually 16 thousand. A lot of shady reporting going on. Florida is a sunny place for shady people though.

That long? The last thread stoppers are already here so I think you're being liberal in your estimate. It's unfortunate they aren't more self aware, but ignorance combined with arrogance doesn't work in the information age.

I haven't seen it mentioned yet, but wonder if the WHO will get their way with some nations after demanding booster shots stop in the "rich" nations for now. The US has rejected their call for equity.

Airline making vaccinations mandatory for ALL employees.
https://www.cnet.com/health/united-a...be-vaccinated/

That's just good PR, if nothing else. Can't force passengers though.

Also! Couple things:
1. I'm completely over my "sinus infection"
2. Walked into the grocery store today and saw I was the only NOT wearing a mask like some asshole.
3. Apparently overnight, Austin went into Stage 5 and everyone decided they needed a mask again (hence #2).
4. All of the current hospitalizations in Austin are from UNVACCINATED individuals or those with compromised immune systems.
5. Yes.

So, where do you get the "real" numbers?

This morning the NYT reports 100,199 cases on 5 August 2021. That's an 87% increase over the number reported on the same day last year. You claim NYT are lying and the "real" number of cases is a fraction of that.

What ARE the real numbers? And, what is your source for them?

The Times are pretty transparent about where and how they gather their data and also, pretty good about printing mea culpas when they get something wrong.

You are persistent in promoting these claims. Can and will you substantiate them?
