MAKE OF IT WHAT WE MAY—

“Sweden, whose Covid-19 death rate soared above its locked-down Scandinavian neighbours at the peak of the pandemic, now has a case rate lower than those of Denmark and Norway…

Sweden has gone from being one of the countries with the most infection in Europe, to one of those with the least infection in Europe…”

Perhaps the Swedish ‘experts’ might actually have known something after all? (Hey, don’t glare at me like that—it was a genuine question …)

IT’S WORTH A

QUICKIE VISIT

Dear Dr. Hamblin,

I have read that a higher vitamin-D level correlates with better outcomes for other coronaviruses such as SARS and MERS. Could skin color be one of the reasons black Americans and Hispanic Americans are disproportionately affected by COVID-19? Should we be taking vitamin-D supplements?”

Damn.

I was led to believe that all is simply racial prejudice … no?

BULLETPROOF-ing

“Still, Dr David Strain, a clinical senior lecturer at the University of Exeter and chair of the British Medical Association’s medical academic staff committee, said the cases were worrying for at least two reasons.

“The first is that it suggests that previous infection is not protective. The second is that it raises the possibility that vaccinations may not provide the hope that we have been waiting for.”

So: do we not see such vaccinations still becoming compulsory anyway?

But the cynic in me asks: “if natural immunisation is not good, why should un-natural (artificial) be any better?

Don’t ask: Beyond here be monsters.

Things may get better—

—when people start taking it seriously.

How serious? Serious enough to lead, possibly, to open revolt?

OR:

perhaps the olde saying

LET ‘EM STEW IN THEIR OWN JUICE

could be applied to anyone caught breaking the curfew? Cage ’em, feed ’em, give ’em all the booze, pot, and condoms they desire … then let them see themselves out happily exercising their freely-chosen choice.

Either way it might need a return to values that are forgotten. Perhaps the ‘Gimme!’ generation may yet come out strongest—clear the path for a gilded age of youth prosperity.

Good luck, kids~!

As the nice man says in that ‘Mummy’ movie, when more and more deceased folks in bandages keep coming at him with hostile intentions—

“This just gets better and better!”

Provoked by this wee newsy snippet—

—are they going to share the good news, you know, spread it around a bit to help take everyones minds off Covid?

Meanwhile I’m off to gobble dinner and later I may persuade The Spouse to help me rewatch that Mummy movie (Rachel Weiss … aaaahhhh …)

BOOM BOOM

“I’ve met the enemy,” says Pogo, “and guess who he is?”

Duh—

“Victoria University coronavirus researchers Vasso Apostolopoulos, Maja Husaric and Maximilian de Courten say there are several reasons the case numbers haven’t tapered off, including lax restrictions, people not taking the pandemic seriously, and the nature of the virus itself.”

—’nuff sed.

THIS IS WHY

IT MAY BE CONTROLLED

Simple human nature—

—most often in the uneducated classes, most often in the arrogant classes, but very rarely in the Realist classes:

“They are people deciding they still want to party, people who have decided they want to continue to go to brothels, decided that the gym can continue to operate and, of course, people who have decided to go into unrestricted areas,” she said.

For myself … I “walk softly and carry a big stick”. Which doesn’t mean literally …

This is where America is falling flat on its arse. And, I guess, the free-minded* independent thinkers of Australia likewise … in both places the authorities are going to have to—
