Re: Sam, you can't even lie with a straight face.

When there is a very dependable listening bubble in place it makes sense to Wingerville to float absolutely anything that can be woven out of anything. 

It’s all becoming subtly sillier, but there is no reason or incentive to stop.

String togather all the words you want Bruce.  I posted facts, all you got is raspberries.

That's what the left said about the virus being created in a wuhan lab. Your credibility is zero

Re: There you go again Sam.

Iceland has a resident population of a bout 350,000 with another 50,000 citizens working overseas, mostly in either Europe or the US.  In addition,  last year 2020, even with the pandemic, Iceland had just under 500,000 visitors, or 42,000 per month, 10,000 per week.

  Moreover, data shows that only about 70% of Iceland's total population (kids included) is vaccinated.   Tomorrow, Aug 16, Iceland will require "persons with ties to Iceland" to show proof of vaccination and a negative test (within 72 hrs) before they can avoid quarantine.

  Meanwhile, almost as soon as Iceland relaxed mitigation (aka. masks) measures in the middle of July new cases jumped from about 5 per day to 100 per day (7 -day ave.).

  You can bet that with that amount of international travel and the lack of restrictions for Iceland citizens there ismore than enough re-infection to account for the current new cases.

  You haven't proved anything, Sam.

Sounds like the covid express coming through our southern border.

Re: The Israelis have just announced ....

   Israel, vaccinated?  As of Aug 14, Israel is only 59.8 % of the population is vaccinated.  This means that 40% of the population is susceptible to infection, plenty to account for the current roughly 5000 new cases (7-day ave.) and 13 deaths per day  (7-day ave).   Not only that but the Israeli have refused to vaccinate 2.7 million Palesteinians, many of whom work in Israel every day.

The Israelis have just announced a program to booster those older citizens who were vaccinated in Jan. & Feb as well as the immuno-compromised because their antibody levels are declining.

Again,  all you've proved is that an incomplete vaccination program won't stop Delta.

Re: Pretty much the whole time, except ....

 They wore a mask pretty much the whole time except when they were eating.  I suppose the Delta virus takes a break when college students are eating, or having when having casual sex later. Of course, they won't admit to that.  No, wait, that's unfair.  Duke has 17,000 students & 39,000 staff, they get two clusters and the world comes to an end.  Get back to me in a month, two months and we'll talk.

All this article tells us is that Delta will require more work to suppress, that a vaccine isn't a magic bullet.

Re: Pretty much the whole time, except ....

(Duke has 17,000 students & 39,000 staff,) 

WOW, 2.3 staff per student - seems kind of crazy.

For reference I web searched Kansas U. and they have close to 20,000 students with 9,000 staff or .45 staff per student - which still seems high.
