Coronavirus - Taiwan Open July 2021

That’s you. Not everyone.

Taiwan has been put on the UK green list, so we must be doing something right. This means you won’t have to quarantine in the Uk if you go back this summer. Amazing news for some!

Useless info for others!!

Anyways, the same situation as last year starts in Europe. People go on vacation, get back home and spread the delta variant. Cases go up, hospitalization goes up, luckily not as many die, yet. Countries start thinking about limiting or toning down opening.

This is great news.

Only problem is, I can see myself wanting to come back and finding everything’s turned to ratshit in Taiwan.

Except you would likely catch delta in the UK.

not likely, possible though. You could also get vaccinated a lot easier. My parents have been getting mail every two weeks telling me to go get vaccinated.

Interesting comment from Ko today. He believes lockdown measures can only be lifted when you have 80% vaccination!

Now he changes from less than 10 cases a day to this bullshit? He should pull some vaccines out of his ass then!

Far less likely to do so if you’re double vaxed.

It’s the quarantine time when returning to Taiwan that has scuppered my trip home to the UK for the second summer.

I heard some old folks were gaming the system by ripping off their vaccination sticker from their nhi card, so they could double dip on vaccines. Why would they do that?

Israel once made it almost 1 per million, and many people are already fully vaxed .

One month ago

So it’s really looking like we will need yearly shots for this.

It’s too early to say, at least from what’s written in this article. Firstly, these positive cases are people who were vaccinated first in Israel, so the very elderly and the vulnerable. And even then it states that the vaccine has ensured that, despite still getting infected, they have only been mild cases. So if the vaccine’s efficiency is still high at reducing covid severity in the elderly and vulnerable after six months, it presumably does an even better job for those with much stronger immune systems. Although, to be fair, that is an assumption I’m in no way qualified to make.

Also, we don’t know how many people that were vaccinated in January in Israel have since then come into contact with the virus, but been completely protected due to the vaccine. So it’s hard to get an idea of the percentages.

because the useless electronic system allows them to?

TGI Friday’s and Texas Roadhouse threaten to close their business due to lack of financial support in Taiwan.

“this number is clearly just produced out of nowhere”

Indeed.

I suppose the key word here is “believe”.

Once you get government that’s predictated on irrational beliefs (or, worse, one single belief that overrides all others) it’s time for a change of government, IMO. But I guess people will just shrug and accept it until Taipei looks like Pyongyang.
