What's so impressive about the numbers coming in around most of the country is that only about 50% of us are vaccinated.

I'm so hoping I'm wrong and these trends continue. Glad lots of folks are getting vaccinated.

If we have these trends two weeks after 4th of July, I'm gonna be mega happy.

It's a slim hope, but I keep hoping the vaccinated numbers are much higher than what they have officially reported...

Except a little over 1/10th the population is recorded as having had it...even if you doubled those numbers the majority of the population still hasn't had the virus yet.

I'd imagine it's a combination of: certain level of herd immunity, vaccinations, people being outside...being indoors is the worst thing for this virus. I don't know what's been going on in the US when it comes to international travel but that also drives numbers with variants.

Hopefully when the fall comes, and people start staying indoors more, that we'll have stuff mostly under control. I don't think this virus is ever going away but will probably just be maintained at a certain level kinda like the seasonal flu (but obviouslly worse)

To make it even worse some of the vaccines China is selling to poor countries are proving to be near useless in real world testing.

Closer to home Im seeing the US stuck at around 51% first shot tho most have had their second shot...

Canada was way behind the US at one point but we shot past them at 64% now and should make 70% at least at this rate but looks like almost half the US pop is refusing the shot...

Chinese doctors say Delta variant's symptoms different, more dangerous

Quote:

Doctors in China say symptoms of the Delta COVID-19 variant, which was first detected in India, are different and more dangerous than the original version of the coronavirus as the strain continues to spread across the globe.

Chinese doctors, according to The New York Times, have found that patients infected with the Delta variant are becoming sicker and that their conditions are worsening at a quicker speed.

As many as 12 percent of patients have become severely or critically ill within three to four days after symptoms first developed, the Times reported, citing Guan Xiangdong, director of critical care medicine at Sun Yat-sen University in the city of Guangzhou.

Previously, only 2 or 3 percent of patients had become severely or critically ill within that time period, with the number sometimes creeping up to 10 percent, according to Xiangdong.
