Yeah, that lines up with other studies.
The covid related benefits of childhood seem to vanish completely at puberty. Teens spread the shit like mad.
Yeah, too good to be true. Or at least too good to be confirmed.Thread. This is pretty fucking insane. I'm skeptical too but... Can't help but get a little giddy here.
J&J, though not yet approved, say they can provide 20m doses to the US by the end of March. Enough for 20 million people. They originally promised 100m by the end of June and original estimates were far lower for March due to a production issue, so they appear to be ahead of schedule.
Said it to my friends this morning when they sent though an article talking about each health unit being responsible for the rollout... ford and the govt need someone else to yell at and blame once the vaccines are available here.Creating confusion makes it easier for the government to evade accountability as it essentially weaponizes its own chaotic messaging to damp down crit...www.thestar.com

I know this is only anecdotal, but I have been overwhelmed recently with both how deferent people seem to be towards politicians, and how unwilling they are to criticize them. For context, I'm in Nova Scotia, and most of my family is in Ontario.Nobody is going to buy it. It's on Dougie. Modern conservatism is entirely about governing poorly and screaming about how useless government is and that's Dougie's game too. That was his & his brother's entire schtick while on city council.
His polling on covid is already heading towards the toilet. 51% recently agreed that Dougie has been "negligent" at managing Long Term Care, and they're right. The only thing saving him from worse numbers regarding LTC is that the for-profit LTC sector is massively unpopular and siphoning off a fair bit of the hatred.
If they bottle the vaccine roll out, no one is going to give a **** that he blames the regions, it's going to be on him. 1 term Premier, thank ****.
Because we are becoming like the US and no matter what stupid thing the party we vote for does or says we defend them and rip on the others. You can be conservative and think ford is in over his head and not built to lead during a pandemic but very few like thinking critically.I know this is only anecdotal, but I have been overwhelmed recently with both how deferent people seem to be towards politicians, and how unwilling they are to criticize them.

From my perspective, Dougie has been downright negligent on a whole host of matters. And while my family are no fans of Doug, they seem to throw less blame his way than me (I mean maybe I'm just extremely anti-Doug, who knows).
And then we have my friends in Newfoundland, one of whom works in healthcare, who got extremely offended when my wife sent them an article critical of a single aspect of NL's pandemic response, on the basis that CBC opinion writers in Ontario have no leg to stand on in discussing anything NL (this one is more NL pride). and hilariously enough, they both told me how much they hate the premier, Furey, but neither took any issue with his pandemic response, and claim to be certain that the Chief Public Health Officer is actually the one running the show rather than the politician (with no evidence in support of this premise, but I digress).
so long story short, why are Canadians so willing to give their political leaders the benefit of the doubt when our country's covid response has been, overall, objectively poor?
