I am fully vaccinated and will get boosters as needed so I say let the rugged individuals who distrust science and governments die if they so choose.


And those rugged individuals who chose not to be vaccinated should also find and fund their own ICU stays.

I am more inclined to encourage them to solicit the prayers of their favorite brand of witch doctor/pastor/priest and place a go fund me page on Facebook

Modelling also suggested that all through the 1960s and 70's we were on the brink of nuclear war (5 seconds to midnight).
Information filtered through journalists or politicians needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, mustard, herbs, spices, etc.


Modelling??? What about 1st person accounts. From the US side, there was Cuban missile crisis, and at least one computer glitch or sensor problem where the US thought the Soviets were launching ICBMs. And who knows how many times the Soviets were close to launching a 1st strike against the west.

List of nuclear close calls

"We cannot just keep shutting cities down" to get through pandemic
27/06/2021
Chef Luke Mangan has called for the NSW government to open fully when it's possible and "learn to live" with COVID-19.

We cannot just keep shutting cities down to get through this, we've got to learn to live with it," he told Sky News Australia.

The city was coming back to full strength again, our businesses were looking great, the government had done a good job.
Look at Victoria, I've got friends with restaurants and hotels in the CBD there who are still really suffering.
They're on the four square metre rule still after being open for the last two or three weeks.

"Our government surely, Gladys Berejiklian, cannot follow that lead of keeping the square metre space and open slowly."


For those of you outside Australia, Skynews=Fox.
Luke Mangan is (allegedly) a cook.
Because nobody in Australia knows much about Tony Fauci, Sky(fox)news has taken to bashing the Australian Broadcasting commission's Health reporter instead.
His name is Dr Norman Swan a Scottish Jewish paediatrician.
Norman Swan's son is Johnathon Swan (Axios) whose face became a meme for "WTF are you talking" about after he interviewed Trump about COVID-19.

Gladys Berejiklian is the NSW Premier.

"Travel
Guidance recommending against travel to amber countries removed
Adults fully vaccinated in the UK will no longer have to quarantine for 10 days after returning from amber list countries".


Nothing said about adults fully vaccinated in amber list countries coming to UK, thus implying that they still have to quarantine for 10 days?
This seems vexatious, given the diffusion of Covid in UK vs many amber list countries.
