IOM Covid removing restrictions

I believe the man in charge doesn't believe in covid. I wonder how many more people have to die before he changes his mind. It does seem a little weird that Texas has made the decision to open up and the number of infected has fallen whereas in the rest of the world with the same decision they have become overrun with cases. Are we sure Texas is telling the truth?

Most of Texas is hot and sunny. Outdoor living. Most of it is also low density population. It is like our summer there now and only going to get hotter and sunnier. The virus cannot survive for long in those conditions.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Having said that, how many more people are dying each day in Brazil than normal?

The guidance states that you can't 'stay over'.  So I suppose you could meet in one another's home, go at it like rabbits and then go home again to sleep before doing it all again the next day only swapping over houses for a bit of variety. That appears to be legal. Is it sensible? I'm not sure. There are full page adverts about the new Kent variant and how extra duper transmissible it is and how extra careful we all must be to stay home but alternatively we are told that we singletons we can mix with another household, for emotional support (or going at it like rabbits if they are agreeable).

 

If you wore latex gloves and full gas masks you could potentially go at it like the proverbial without risk of transmission. I don't think I've read anywhere that the virus can be sexually transmitted.

Be careful of the neighbours though. You wouldn't want to be caught inflagrante by the rozzers while you're both wearing gas masks.................or maybe you would if you had some sort of uniform fetish.

 

I may have overthought this post.

I always considered that most Americans, apart from the 'Rednecks' were kind of like us as far basic intelligence goes....BUT!!...have you seen the latest US media reports about the hundreds of 'Spring breakers', these are university students in Miami, congretating for the annual 'party', the vast majority without masks.

Surprisingly (sic) Miami now the city celebrating, with by far the most new cases of Covid in the entire United States.

These students, university students, credited with being the best of the best in terms of intelligence.....REALLY!

Some US states have fully reopened. "Wide swathes of America are now almost back as business as usual" says the title of the article below.

Here in this island, I see people in the open countryside with those silly napkins on their faces, and have so much pity for them. Brainwashed. Obvious early signs of dementia.

The pic below shows Maiami beach a few days ago (horror).

In Australia for almost a year they have had: closed external borders, social distancing and mask wearing. It now seems that the ‘year of personal isolation’ has had an unexpected side-effect i.e., it has weakened some peoples’ immune systems. It is being reported that cases of respiratory illnesses like colds and flus, which normally appear around June (the beginning of their winter season) are already circulating, and many of the people who are getting the flu are having more severe symptoms than they normally would.

It is possible that 24/7 shielding may be generally weakening peoples’ immune systems, and that this making them more susceptible to diseases other than Covid-19 – Grrrrrrrrr! It seems that peoples’ immune systems are constantly responding to whatever germs (bacteria and viruses) are attacking the body. When people, or an entire community, self isolates, those nasty little germs are no longer there stimulating/ strengthening/ reinvigorating the immune systems and consequently those systems naturally reduce their capacity to fight off the next infection threats. Consequently, when the infection comes along, people are left with a less robust immune system and an infected person will become sicker than they otherwise would be.   

This is why our, together with the UK medical authorities, need to start looking beyond the Covid-19 vaccination, to start thinking more holistically, and to begin preparations for what might come next. They need to avoid thinking hubristically i.e., assuming that they know everything they need to know, and to consult with the WHO (or similar experts) on how best to deal with these types of issues.

Well there’s likely to be a lot more on in Guernsey as they are fully open and allowing friends & families to recommence visits from this week with normal isolation rules which are scheduled to finish end of June, fuck knows where we’ll be at but at least the Government supporters will blame the public like Howie & Henny do 😂

I don’t know for certain but I saw some social media posts last week inferring that a young person had either tried to or had committed suicide recently which is what prompted the singleton support bubble.

That is precisely what I always thought!

What is it about these people that makes them do such stupid things?

Do they not realise that it is their stupidity that helps to ensure that the controls against us all keep getting extended?

We all want to get out of lockdown, and I'd rather do it sooner, without their "help".

Because they are exactly the type of people who don't usually care that their behaviour impacts anyone else and why we have laws, courts and the police. Same with drink drivers etc. Or think they are clever enough to get away with it when they aren't.

It's like the last 9 weeks never happened...

Same goes with the 'oh the US is open...' idiocy.

I believe since the IRIS Project, the Isle of Man has excellent sewer mapping and access to all sewers. So could be carried out here.

This.

Testing should show when the virus has departed these shores.

As with wearing a mask in the car, they are theoretically correct.

Whenever you leave your home into the big outside you are going into a contaminated area. Continually taking off and donning your mask with potentially contaminated hands is heightening the risk.

I think anyone hiking up North Barrule would be forgiven for taking their mask off but otherwise it should be kept on. But what do they do when they pass someone on the way?
