    I think a lot of people confused “Living with COVID” with “COVID no longer exists” and when the restrictions are gone, take it to mean that the risk is gone, and away we go.

    The "horse dewormer" thing is a bit of a cliche punchline.

    We are living In the Golden age of disinformation.

    Ivermectin has been getting prescribed by doctors to humans for years before covid was around. Its an FDA approved antiviral.

    Just like hydroxychloroquine is an approved treatment for malaria and other diseases.

    NOW, that being said, it is not an approved treatment for Covid, so folks buying it off shelved and taking retarded amounts of it are still idiots.

    But calling it a "horse dewormer that should not be used by humans" is just sensationalism by the media.

    It sounds better to say horse dewormer with Joe Rogan because he spent two years going on about how important it is to maintain a healthy immune system and covid would be no problem. No need to inject experimental vaccines when you have a well taken care of body. One day with covid and he's getting loaded with every experimental drug known to man or animal :rofl:

    I looked away / haven't been tracking what's happening in NS - 29 new cases? Hitting a new wave? How's the new premier looking to handle it?

    It's almost like the playing field keeps changing as the goal posts were set. The original goal posts were put in place before the Delta variant came along and changed everything. And we'd be a lot further along if more people would just get the vaccine and wear a damn mask.

    People are really bad at the "with what we know today" and the path changing due to new discoveries happening in real time. In other words, people suck.

    We went to visit my wife's siblings over the long weekend and on Sunday morning all their phones started to ring and they got news that one of the elder aunts in Alberta had passed away.
    She was in her 90's and had Covid refused to get the shot because of a Bible verse. Her Son, in his 60's is in the hospital in the ICU not vaccinated because of the same Bible verse :cheddar: is not expected to make a recovery. I am spiritual but not a religious man I think there is something out there but

    We were all double vaccinated at the gathering and had a great time. We haven't been able to see each other in two years.

    Yup it was a sure downer for the rest of the weekend and an eye opener for people who are not getting the shot but hey it's just government propaganda.
    I saw on the news tonight that our local hospital has 10 people in the ICU and 9 are unvaccinated and on ventilators.
    Come on you dumb bastards either get the shot or go out in the middle of nowhere and stay there together.

    I hope people are paying attention the the vaccine breakdown. I think there's been too much focus in the news on "you can (keyword being can, as in not impossible) still get and spread the virus!", which I think causes people to wonder what's the point of getting it if they were on the fence. I also know many people who are fully vaxxed but are still paranoid about catching covid and limiting time in public. At this point if they don't feel confident that the vaccine works, what else is there to make them feel comfortable about going back to living their lives? The numbers above show me that the vaccine works.

    They really should put the breakdown in their overview (that Mike posts) so it's clear that the people getting covid are the people who aren't vaccinated. People don't read the press releases.
