    I’m not sure what you mean? I thought you agreed that vaccinated also spread the virus? So who am I diverting attention from?

      As we see from Covid, the rules/guidance is made up as we go along and is not consistent.  The situation is similar with climate change. Emissions in Western manufacturing are bad, so move production to Asia… where they have fewer environmental regulations. Doesn’t make sense, does it?  Prince Charles can fly around on his private jet, but still lecture people on the environment, etc.

      Avocados are apparently associated with high emissions compared to other foods. The scientific consensus is climate change is caused by humans and will cause millions, or billions, of people to die. So in order to prevent that, people need to be made to change their attitude and behaviour.

    The same argument could be made for climate change I think. Someone emits too much CO2 by taking the plane, or eating avocados or beef, or whatever, so they are a bad person who is endangering the rest of us and must be punished until they conform. Something like this is coming it seems.

    "Simple Nasal Wash 'Reduces COVID-19 Severity'   Simple nasal washes with mild saline water can prevent hospitalisation and deaths from COVID-19, if applied twice daily following a positive diagnosis, according to research led by the US-based Augusta University. Reducing the amount of virus entering the body cuts the severity of the disease, says the study published September in the Ear, Nose & Throat Journal. It found that nasal washes conducted within 24 hours of diagnosis can prevent the virus from entering the lungs and possibly causing permanent or fatal damage to patients. Amy Baxter, corresponding author of the study affiliated with the department of emergency medicine at Augusta University, says that extra hydration of the sinuses makes them function better. “If you have a contaminant, the more you flush it out, the better you are able to get rid of dirt, viruses and anything else,” she explained. ACE2 receptors in cells — which bind to the spike protein of the virus resulting in COVID-19 infection — are plentiful in the nasal cavity, lungs and mouth and a nasal saline wash can help prevent the virus from attaching to receptors, they said. The researchers say nasal washes are inexpensive and safe and can be administered at home using half a teaspoon each of salt and baking soda in a cup of boiled or distilled water. ... The research involved comparing data from high-risk COVID-19 patients, such as those with obesity, hypertension or diabetes and aged over 55, who had carried out nasal washes, with datasets of 3 million COVID-19 cases from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The researchers found that only 1.3 per cent of COVID-19 patients who underwent nasal wash required hospitalisation, suggesting that they were more than eight times less likely to be hospitalised compared with the 11 per cent in the CDC dataset."

    “COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters for Young Adults: A Risk-Benefit Assessment and Five Ethical Arguments against Mandates at Universities Students at North American universities risk disenrollment due to third dose COVID-19 vaccine mandates. We present a risk-benefit assessment of boosters in this age group and provide five ethical arguments against mandates. We estimate that 22,000 - 30,000 previously uninfected adults aged 18-29 must be boosted with an mRNA vaccine to prevent one COVID-19 hospitalisation. Using CDC and sponsor-reported adverse event data, we find that booster mandates may cause a net expected harm: per COVID-19 hospitalisation prevented in previously uninfected young adults, we anticipate 18 to 98 serious adverse events, including 1.7 to 3.0 booster-associated myocarditis cases in males, and 1,373 to 3,234 cases of grade ≥3 reactogenicity which interferes with daily activities. Given the high prevalence of post-infection immunity, this risk-benefit profile is even less favourable. University booster mandates are unethical because: 1) no formal risk-benefit assessment exists for this age group; 2) vaccine mandates may result in a net expected harm to individual young people; 3) mandates are not proportionate: expected harms are not outweighed by public health benefits given the modest and transient effectiveness of vaccines against transmission; 4) US mandates violate the reciprocity principle because rare serious vaccine-related harms will not be reliably compensated due to gaps in current vaccine injury schemes; and 5) mandates create wider social harms.“

    “CDC Admits it Falsely Claimed it Was Monitoring Vaccine Safety – But Still Won’t Release the Full Data …   Walensky’s agency had promised in several documents, starting in early 2021, to perform a type of analysis called Proportional Reporting Ratio (PRR) on reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, which it helps manage. But the agency said in June that it did not perform PRRs. It also said that performing them was “outside th[e] agency’s purview”. Confronted with the contradiction, Dr. John Su, a CDC official, told the Epoch Times in July that the agency started performing PRRs in February 2021 and “continues to do so to date.” But just weeks later, the CDC said Su was wrong. “CDC performed PRRs from March 25th 2022 through July 31st 2022,” a spokeswoman told the Epoch Times in August.“

    "In an interview with The Spectator magazine, the prime ministerial hopeful says the ‘fear’ narrative set in motion at the outset of the pandemic via government messaging was “always wrong,” and that he said so internally at the time. “It was wrong to scare people like that,” he said. “I constantly said it was wrong.” Among the worst elements of this public fear campaign, he suggests, were posters branded with the NHS logo and depicting Covid patients on ventilators."

    "Am Mittwoch stellten Gesundheitsminister Karl Lauterbach (59, SPD) und Justizminister Marco Buschmann (45, FDP) neue Corona-Regeln vor (vom 1. Oktober bis 7. April).   Größter Aufreger: In Bars, Restaurants, Kinos, Theater und anderen Freizeiteinrichtungen können die Länder wieder Maskenpflicht anordnen (FFP2-Maske). Alternativ sollen Besucher auch einen Negativ-Test oder einen Genesenen- oder Impf-Nachweis vorlegen, der maximal drei Monate alt ist."   Maybe I am misunderstanding, but based on the above it does seem that the link from @Mr.Bear is correct on the point that the you will need to be vaccinated within the last 3 months to go into a resteraunt etc. without a test.

    “The ongoing pandemic of ‘more virulent’ SC-2 variants   Hospitalizations and mortality rates due to (not with!) SARS CoV-2 (SC-2) continue to decline as the unvaccinated increasingly train their innate immune response (primarily NK cell-based), while vaccinees are increasingly protected not only against severe C-19 disease (due to the inhibitory effect of high titers of infection-enhancing antibodies [Abs] that block viral trans infection in the lungs; evolution-c-19-pandemic), but now even increasingly against mild-moderate C-19 disease (via strong activation [not priming!] of polyspecific MHC class I-unrestricted cytotoxic T cells2, which naturally enable recovery from C-19 disease). However, as none of the immune mechanisms currently at play within these individuals can prevent productive infection (see figure 1), vaccinees are now increasingly becoming asymptomatic shedders of SC-2. This applies to all vaccinated subpopulations/ age groups. The immune mechanisms preventing severe disease are exclusively adaptive in nature (i.e., mediated by antigen [Ag]-specific infection-enhancing Abs and therefore independent of the innate immune status of the vaccinee). As infection-enhancing Abs in vaccinees are boosted upon each re-exposure to the more infectious circulating virus, these Abs are raising the immune pressure on viral virulence which—for now—is still capable of preventing severe disease (although only for a limited amount of time!). However, this rising population-level immune pressure has already led to the enhanced intrinsic virulence of the virus (BA.4 and BA.5 are ‘more virulent’ variants; The very last step the virus needs to take to fully escape the virulence-neutralizing effect of these is to select a variant (of the conserved infection enhancing site3) which no longer sufficiently binds the infection-enhancing Abs when tethered to migrating dendritic cells (DCs; see fig. 1). Insufficient or deficient binding of these Abs to DC surface-tethered SC-2 virions will no longer allow them to prevent trans infection (leading to trans fusion, which is responsible for syncytia formation and severe disease; evolution-c-19-pandemic), When this occurs, protection against severe disease will vanish. A similar process has already occurred with the ‘more infectious’ SC-2 variants of the S-RBD (receptor-binding domain of S protein) which were no longer sufficiently bound by previously neutralizing Abs. When this occurred, protection against (moderate) disease vanished. I predict that it’s only a matter of an additional few months (depending on booster shots) before the virus overcomes this final hurdle, at which point highly vaccinated populations will be devastated by massive rates of C-19 morbidity and C-19 mortality if not massively treated with antivirals. Once SC-2 has become resistant to the virulence- inhibiting capacity of the infection-enhancing Abs, the latter will only contribute to precipitating and accelerating severe disease. Consequently, Ab-dependent enhancement of infection (ADEI) will now prompt Ab-dependent enhancement of disease (ADED). ADED will first manifest in vaccinees with high titers of infection- enhancing Abs and vaccinated at an early stage of the vaccination program (i.e., before they had an opportunity to train their CBIIS). Hence, elderly and vulnerable vaccinees will be affected first.Provided they had ample opportunity to train their innate immune system prior to vaccination, some vaccinees may have enough natural immune capacity left to survive—but will the hospitals still be able to treat them? Unless we make safe and effective antivirals immediately available in sufficient supply and at affordable cost for prophylactic use of vaccinees at the first sign of this imminent wave, we’re going to face a massive loss of human life. The first sign to look for will be a return to improved protection of vaccinees against disease all together (but this time due to sustained activation of cytotoxic CD8+ T cells!) followed by a dramatic increase in the ratio of vaccinees hospitalized DUE to SC-2 to the unvaccinated hospitalized DUE to SC-2 (particularly in ages 20-60).”

      Unrelated, but one would have to be totally deranged to give these vaccines to a healthy 6 month old. Hey, just my opinion.

      It's well established that there is a risk of myocarditis and other heart conditions associated with the mRNA vaccines. Not sure how you can say there is "absolutely no evidence".   The risk is highest in teenage boys/young men, in particular after the second injection (or now presumably booster).   Moderna is associated with a higher risk than Pfizer, presumably due to the the dose being 3 times higher. This is why Sweden and other countries stopped giving Moderna to those under 30,

    To be fair, I wouldn't call people who get boosted "crazy". They are just following the official guidance. Then the message is conveyed relentlessly that anything going against the official guidance, or which even raises doubts about it, is "anti-vax misinformation".   Unfortunately, the official guidance doesn't mention some of the risks that are becoming more and more apparent as time goes on...   "There are multiple working hypothesis for why there is the appearance of negative effectiveness of these genetic inoculations for preventing COVID-19 disease. Examples include; Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE). Other forms of Vaccine-enhanced Disease (VAED). Vaccine-induced acquired immunodeficiency (VAIDS) of one type or another. Evolution of SARS-CoV-2 in the context of widely deployed leaky vaccines to select for variants which will escape the pressure of vaccine-induced immune responses.
