    Ah, wil. Hope God gives you a few more years to realize that trip.

    Covid restrictions have been completely lifted in England, except on foreign travel and entry. Good vacc uptake. Individual businesses make their own rules about masks and social distancing. We'll just have to see how long it lasts.

    There is a fuss here about people deleting the track and trace app because it is pinging too many people and forcing them to self isolate from work. The papers call it 'the pingdemic' so the gvt is making the app less sensitive. And they're trying to encourage office workers to return to their city offices, to save the city 'sandwich ecomony' businesses.

    Incidentally in South Africa my brother's elderly father in law contracted covid after two jabs, and is still hospitalised, while his mother in law refused the jabs, contracted covid and has recovered completely. So ...

    Israel is now on the banned travel list here:

    First to vaccinate and first to party, Israel now mulls lockdown

    https://amp-ft-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/amp.ft.com/content/c21e2053-0373-4b8e-80b7-fad10f235604?amp_js_v=a6&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQKKAFQArABIIACAw==#aoh=16289300015467&referrer=https://www.google.com&amp_tf=From %1$s&ampshare=https://www.ft.com/content/c21e2053-0373-4b8e-80b7-fad10f235604

    "Having won early access to supplies of the BioNTech/Pfizer jab in exchange for sharing nationwide data on how mass vaccination drives affect the pandemic, Israel is a closely watched indicator for where well-inoculated developed economies are heading.

    After months of euphoria, the data out of Israel is troubling. The Israeli ministry of health has twice revised downwards the long-term efficacy of the jabs — from the advertised 94 per cent protection from asymptomatic infections against the then-dominant Alpha variant, to as low as 64 per cent against the now-dominant Delta variant.

    As new infections soared, so did the long tail of hospitalisations. Even though the unvaccinated were five to six times as likely to end up seriously ill, the vaccine’s protection was waning fastest for the oldest — the most vulnerable — some vaccinated only in December ..."

    5 PM, News from India.
    India has vaccinated more than 20 million people today on Prime Mnister Modi's 71st birthday.

    There is still time till 12 PM. Let us see if we can notch up to 25 million vaccinations in a day. I do not have details, they will follow.

    As they say in India "Modi hai, to mumkin hai"
    (If there is Modi, then it is possible)


    "New Delhi: India crossed two crore Covid vaccinations in a day for the first time as the government raced to deliver a record on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's birthday today. The government set out with a target of 2.5 crore vaccinations."
    Record 2 Crore Jabs So Far, Government Aims At Birthday "Gift" For PM
    (NDTV is not a Government mouth-piece)

    This is important imho:


    Pfizer has been given the "green light" to be given to pediatric clients between the ages of 5 and 11.

    Updates... 3rd poke a thing..

    Delta spike peaked (hopefully) in US although Alaska and other antivaxxers areas in trouble.

    Republicans hospitalizations and deaths may effect future elections.

    Is G!d punishing them for voting for Trump (how many times have we heard that kind of talk?) Or taking them home early?

    India update. Situation OK, except for Kerala and Mizoram (has more more infections and deaths vis-a-vis its population, 1.3 million out of the total 1400 million). One of the three predominantly Christian states in India. 87% Christians, Presbytarian. The other states are Nagaland and Meghalaya.

    Edit: Thankfully, the death numbers are not high. Could be because of Myanmar refugees.

    With the combination of back to school, full capacity churches, ball parks and music venues with the delta variant the average age of the dying is dropping dramatically.

    India will be completing vaccination of 1000 million this week. Even then some 400 million remain to be vaccinated. We are averaging 5.7 million each day. We need to hurry up. :D
