Are you wearing your mask?


I used myself as a model for this animation and I make sure that I wear a face mask when I go shopping. I'm very pleased to say that people in the Sevenoaks (UK) area where I live are being extremely considerate and are all wearing masks when in close contact with each other. Must admit that I still avoid restaurants and pubs

Yes, there's stupid in Germany as well. Good to see the UK doesn't have a monopoly on stupid. (although 17k isn't that many. Especially as I think I saw something a few days ago where some of the organisers (or someone sympathising with them) predicted 7-8M attendees. Yeah, right....)

The Scourge of Hygiene Theater - The Atlantic https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/07/scourge-hygiene-theater/614599/
It’s as if an oceanside town stalked by a frenzy of ravenous sharks urged people to return to the beach by saying, We care about your health and safety, so we’ve reinforced the boardwalk with concrete. Lovely. Now people can sturdily walk into the ocean and be separated from their limbs
That's what I have been saying all the time. In end with all those crazy désinfection you just increase the chance of super germs or other resistance against antibiotics. The virus is airborne and so masks and distance are important
Take for example the well known fact that it boosts the immune system of children if they play in dirt outside.

Great job at demonstrating how masks protect us from droplets.

Evolutionary Origins of SARS-CoV-2 Identified

The researchers found that the lineage of viruses to which SARS-CoV-2 belongs diverged from other bat viruses about 40-70 years ago. Importantly, although SARS-CoV-2 is genetically similar (about 96%) to the RaTG13 coronavirus, which was sampled from a Rhinolophus affinis horseshoe bat in 2013 in Yunnan province, China, the team found that it diverged from RaTG13 a relatively long time ago, in 1969.

Nigel Farage was at the Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, on the weekend 20-21/Jun. The absolute earliest he could have returned to the US would have been Sunday 21/Jun, when he should have gone into a 14 day quarantine/self-isolation. That would at least be until 5/Jul, better 6/Jul. So how is this possible then?

And what Starmer doesn't even mention is that a lot of people you'd never expect (like the Chaos Computer Club, all kind of privacy advocates, various IT experts, all the people who normally wouldn't touch a government app with a barge pole) are all pretty much praising the app, saying it does most things right (within the technical constraints) and recommend to download it

Stop wasting time on stupid conspiracy theories and instead focus on the potential next pandemic and stop it early:

Ignore the conspiracy theories: scientists know Covid-19 wasn't created in a lab

The area of Wales that missed coronavirus - and the simple system it set up


One big difference that sets #Ceredigion apart was that even before it had recorded its first case of Covid-19, it had set up a "homemade" in-house test track and trace system.

The man behind it, Barry Rees, the corporate director for Ceredigion Council, is a scientist by training. He believes contact tracing is the only way of "pursuing the #disease then rather than following it".

Is this the reason for why the county has emerged unscathed? Has a simple contact tracing system saved hundreds of lives?

Now that's reassuring. Everything is just fine. And I'm sure the app (if ever released) will work without a hitch as well. We're safe. The government has everything under control.

The training for the government's track and trace system is brilliant

Quote of note:

"...Michele Usuelli, a doctor and regional councillor for the small, leftwing party, Più Europa, pins much of the blame on politics and healthcare mismanagement. He said Lombardy’s fate began to be charted out in the late 1990s when the Italian government decentralised healthcare, giving regions more autonomy."

"At the same time, the privatisation of healthcare became more prevalent. Although other regions continued to mostly maintain the public health system, a succession of Lombardy governors, including Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia between 1995 and 2013, and Matteo Salvini’s far-right League since then, allowed the private and public systems to compete for funds based on efficiency."

"Even though Lombardy developed one of the most enviable healthcare systems in Italy, the strategy left private firms free to invest in areas of care that made more money, inevitably leading to a reduction of beds in the public system and leaving the region less equipped to meet all types of health needs."

Via Why was Lombardy hit harder than Italy's other regions?
