two main reasons why I think this thing was so bad....

1) Americans are an obese, out of shape people. This virus tends to kick the ass of people who are obese and in poor health- that's half if not most of this damn country. CDC reported 78% of all hospitalizations and deaths were people suffering from obesity.

2) We just don't have enough hospital beds. America has around 2.7 hospital beds per 1,000 people. Japan has over 13. South Korea has over 12. These countries never really locked down- and they crushed this thing out of the park.

Japan and South Korea can effectively isolate their country, same with NZ and Hawaii.

Anybody else noticing more impatience and rudeness in public these days? As the pandemic wanes, the worst I see of others is out on the roads. The stress of driving has gotten to the point where if I'm facing any amount of time on the I-15 or I-5, I end up paying as much attention to the rear view mirrors. So many drivers cutting lanes, flooring 80, and if finding myself in the way, I've never been flipped off or honked at more.

Googling "pandemic rude" to check if anybody else is noticing and sure enough many are:

Why Everyone Is So Rude Right Now - TIME (Oct 2021)
Why Is Everyone So Angry? We Investigated - NYT (Jan 2022)
Face it, you've become meaner because of the pandemic - Deseret (Aug 2021)
Adults Are Throwing Tantrums—in Restaurants, Planes and at Home. Blame the Pandemic - WSJ (Sept 2021)
Shoppers are getting ruder, and grocery workers suffer the mental health impact - Inquirer (Nov 2021)

Have not noticed this here. I imagine there is a lot more pent up anger in the lockdown states??

I'd say if anything folks here are more tolerant and less angry.  It would be a slight difference.  I am prone to speaking to folks if they glance my way.

I just made my monthly run to Walmart for some basics.  There were a lot of employees in the aisles stocking, mostly fairly focused on themselves, but most would speak back to me as I said GM or something.  They have a lot of stockers, more than customers at this hour.  I hit traffic coming back for a short bit, not surprisingly.

Deaths per cases is not terrible here, especially considering that so many occurred before vaccine and treatment availability. Also, I believe the case numbers are low. 

Everyone has had this thing - one way or another.

Twice.

I'm revising this post, as this was not from the FDA Pfizer dump. It's from a published paper in the UK on instructions for doctors.

Took a lot of searching, but I got it.

Hqrdtemplatecleanen v10.1 (publishing.service.gov.uk)


Misinformation is everywhere. I trusted the source, and should not have.

COVID-19 Vaccines While Pregnant or Breastfeeding (cdc.gov)

This is the current recommendation by the CDC.  I'm sure that in the early phases, they lacked data on this topic.

I know the current recommendations. This started almost a year ago with her.

I'm trying to verify everything and will report back.

Few will make much effort to recheck.
