Thread: On Israel and Vaccination

  1. #1

    Default On Israel and Vaccination

    Israel introduced national COVID lockdowns on December 27th in response to a surge in new cases. After another two weeks of increase in new cases, their curve leveled off and has begun decreasing.
    This is not news, as lockdowns have been just as effective everywhere else they've been implemented, and on the same timeline besides.
    What is important to note is that Israel introduced the COVID vaccine a week earlier, focused on the most vulnerable populations, and yet their new deaths on any given day are still extremely well correlated to their new cases from two weeks earlier:



    And their earlier introduction of the vaccine is not an outlier, they are lapping the field in vaccine administered:



    Per Axios, 70% of their highest-priority group is vaccinated, but new deaths continue to be locked to new cases. Even with mass vaccination, it is not possible to let most people go about their business while protecting the most vulnerable population.

    And we are very, very far from mass vaccination.

    .

    The vaccine will be a crucial tool in ending this pandemic.
    In the four or five or six or seven or eight months until enough of it is administered in the US of A, the rules will not change:
    Masks work.
    Lockdowns work.
    Distancing works.
    Not doing them doesn't.

    We've got this.

    If we want to.

    Don't worry, Biden is President. Lockdowns and COVID are all ending soon.

    Biden is going to cure COVID because he's tired of Latrin's dumbass threads.

    Lockdowns clearly work. I mean, just look at California, who is doing very well with no COVID surges, or anything like that.

    Lockdowns would work if they were actual enforced lockdowns. I don't think that sort of thing would slide here in the US.

    Just wear 3 masks. 2 on your face and one over your butthole.

    You joke, but China is actually moving to anal swabs for COVID testing. Yes, you read that right, anal swabs.
