With the best vaccine so far, Pfizer, falling so far in efficacy against the Delta India Bravo (my politically incorrect name for it) Scariant, I am afraid that herd immunity is a pipe dream.

It might just be time to open everything up and let the chips fall where they may. Nah, not gonna happen.

That's pretty much what my country, the UK, is going to be doing in less than 2 weeks despite rising infections, so we can watch how that works.

It has become the only logical thing to do. Time to move on and natural selection will carry on from there. Wanna wear a mask for years to come? Go ahead.

I have grave doubts the DR will even relax curfews over the coming months. Different strokes ... Let us see what the allegedly to be massive protests in Santo Trafficjam brings.

Open everthing up... in 2 weeks so our Pfizer booster sets in. Then let Darwin go to work.
Still will wear masks and be mindful of crowds.

Guess the big guy is going to decide.
Dark side? Sorry but WTF?

We all have access to facts of several sources. We all have options and are free to choose.

Darwin at work again? Still?

I was always on that side since I knew from day one that CV19 is here, there, and everywhere to stay. Such as it is with pandemics past, present and future.

I only reported facts, which people sometimes interpret as opinions. That is a fault in others ability to analyze situations.

You don't report facts! One example is you say the virus escaped from the Wuhan lab. That is pure speculation. Once again I say you are no expert, just an expat living in the DR.

Fun, $$$ and Games,

At least 100 of 613 US athletes unvaccinated as Tokyo Olympics begin​

  • USOPC is ‘quite happy’ with number of vaccinated athletes
  • Vaccination is not required for athletes competing at Games
About 100 of the 613 US athletes arriving in Tokyo for the Olympics are unvaccinated, the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee’s medical chief said hours before Friday night’s opening ceremony.

Medical director Jonathan Finnoff said 567 of the American athletes had filled out their health histories as they prepared for the trip, and estimated 83% had replied they were vaccinated.

“Eighty-three percent is actually a substantial number and we’re quite happy with it,” Finnoff said.
Nationally, 56.3% of Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While there is discussion about the efficacy of vaccines,
There is not much discussion of No vaccinations.
Obviously most will survive this form of Russian Roulette.

Risk of COVID spread is 'zero', IOC chief says, amid rising cases.​

TOKYO, July 15 (Reuters) - International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said on Thursday there was "zero" risk of Games participants infecting Japanese residents with COVID-19, as cases hit a six-month high in the host city.



Follow the inauguration of the Olympic Games in Tokyo and the participation of 62 Dominican athletes in 10 sports on local television on Claro TV. Given the time difference, many of the most important events will be seen on primetime TV much after they have passed.
