    Yeah, because we all know that liberals on those platforms don't spread hate and lies. They're all little angels.

    well on the other TapATalk threads... BSM would have been kicked out for his constant lies and re-typing/editing another users post. Besides his INSANE claims on how well the country is doing now than when trump was in charge.

    No they are banning people for speaking their minds trying to point out the lies and disinformation that the left spews.

    Oh so no CNN? maybe vox - msnbcpms is that where you get your information?

    the left media ( much like bullshitmaster ) twists the truth that's why they have to pay out on the lies they have spewed.

    Dr. Fauci, Tear Off These Masks

    If the epidemic continues on its current course, it will be safe to uncover your face by Memorial Day





    When will it be safe to shop at a grocery store or show up at the office without wearing a mask? Sooner than most experts are willing to admit. If the coronavirus epidemic in the U.S. continues on its current trajectory, the need for masks outside particular local outbreak areas will pass in a matter of weeks.


    One way to think about the problem is by analogy to seasonal influenza. Hardly anybody wears a mask in ordinary settings to protect against the flu, and no one is required to do so. The worst flu seasons of recent years saw an average of 220 deaths a day nationwide. The seven-day moving average for Covid-19 daily deaths hovers around 900, still considerably worse. But that’s a 78% reduction since January, and the trends are favorable almost everywhere in the country. When the 14-day rolling average of daily Covid deaths has come down below flu level, which may happen within the next month or two, we should adjust our thinking about the coronavirus accordingly.


    Vaccination is the main reason for the sharp decline in Covid cases and deaths. Some three million shots are being administered each day, and once immunity has kicked in, the vaccinated are at negligible risk of being infected, never mind spreading infection. If you’ve been vaccinated, there’s almost no direct safety benefit—to yourself or others—of wearing a mask. You still have to do so only because immunity is invisible. The expectation or requirement of mask-wearing is impracticable to impose only on those who are vulnerable or may be dangerous.


    At some point, however, herd immunity is achieved: Enough of the population is immune to make the risk of infection minimal in the population as a whole. Anthony Fauci puts the threshold for herd immunity at full vaccination of 85% of the U.S. population, including children. Since the vaccine has been authorized only for patients 16 and older and not all adults are willing to accept it, Dr. Fauci’s goal almost certainly won’t be reached for another year, if ever. The current figure is only 17% of total population.

    Dr. Fauci’s benchmark is unreasonably high. He ignores that many unvaccinated Americans—perhaps as many as 120 million, as seroprevalence studies suggest true incidence levels to be three to 20 times captured infections—have immunity owing to prior infection. A recent large-scale Danish study finds that prior infection provides approximately 80% protection to patients younger than 65 and 47% protection to those older. That difference is why it’s important to prioritize the elderly for vaccination, as U.S. authorities have done. Because of this combination of factors, we will likely surpass 50% combined immunity within the next week or two





    A single dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine has been shown to confer 80% immunity after two weeks according to recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data on healthcare workers. A British study showed people who were immunized after infection had 99% protection after a single dose. This means any of the 99 million Americans—38% of adults—who have received at least one dose may be sufficiently protected. At the current pace, 50% of the entire population could receive a single shot by the third week of April if efforts focus on the unvaccinated instead of those who’ve already had one shot. If combined with continued lower rates of infection and death, I believe that would be enough to justify an end to mask-wearing outside high-risk settings.


    We are much closer to protective immunity than some public-health officials acknowledge—or perhaps want to acknowledge. Precisely how close is impossible to tell, in part because officials have recommended getting the vaccine regardless of prior immunity and haven’t kept track of whether people receiving the vaccine already had a documented infection or presence of antibodies conferring probable natural immunity. They also are administering second doses rather than maximizing the number of people vaccinated, despite the data showing the efficacy of a single dose and the U.K.’s impressive success with the delayed-booster approach.


    A final factor is the supply of vaccines. In addition to protecting the vulnerable, universal masking salves the fears of those who are at risk of infection. Once vaccines are plentiful enough that any adult who wants one can easily get it, the calculus changes. If you’re unable to get vaccinated, it’s reasonable to expect others to accept infringements on their freedom as a precaution. Not if you refuse to get vaccinated.


    Public-health officials and politicians risk a public rebellion if they don’t start taking common sense into account and instead persist in labeling anyone who questions their decrees “antiscience.” After more than a year of restrictions, they should prioritize getting back to normal. That means public-health agencies need to generate accurate benchmarks of progress—including natural immunity as well as vaccinations—and to be open to modifying their approach, including by relaxing restrictions that have proved ineffective or outlived their usefulness.


    Universal masking isn’t in that category yet, but it will be soon. I believe it will probably be safe to end mask mandates by the end of April, but Memorial Day weekend is a more realistic target. Until then, even if you’ve been vaccinated, you’ll have to wear a mask when you’re indoors in public.

    Prevention for Individuals
    Get Vaccinated Against COVID-19
    Vaccination offers excellent protection against illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. All persons aged 16 or older who live or work in Mississippi are eligible for vaccination.

    Free vaccinations are available at MSDH drive-through sites statewide.
    Local health clinics. physicians, pharmacies and providers also offer COVID-19 vaccination.
    More about finding a vaccination and making an appointment
    All persons 65 and older, and anyone 16 or older with a serious chronic medical condition are urged to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

    Practice Social Distancing
    The more you are apart from others, the more you are protected from COVID-19 transmission. The virus spreads easily between those eating together, talking together, or attending events.

    Avoid non-essential trips outside your home.
    If you are 65 or older, or in poor health, avoiding exposure to others is especially important (see precautions below).
    Keep at least 6 feet apart from others when you are outside your home.
    Avoid crowds, social gatherings and community events. Don't gather with those outside your household members. If you eat out or visit stores, restaurants or bars, keep your trips short and wear a cloth face covering.
    Gathering outdoors is safer than gathering indoors. Masks and social distancing are still needed outdoors.
    Follow restrictions on indoor and outdoor gathering sizes.
    Wear a Mask or Face Covering
    Combined with social distancing, face coverings are highly effective at preventing COVID-19 transmission to others and to yourself. Face covering is especially important when a distance of at least 6 feet cannot easily be maintained between persons.

    Wear a mask or cloth face covering whenever you are around others who do not live with you.
    Wear a mask even if you have been vaccinated to prevent possible transmission of COVID-19 to others.
    Wear a non medical-grade cloth mask, either manufactured or one you make yourself, when shopping, running errands, or otherwise away from home. Reserve medical-grade masks (surgical or N-95 masks) for use by healthcare workers and first responders.
    A face shield is not an effective substitute for a mask.
    Making, wearing and cleaning your own cloth mask CDC
    Practice Protective Hygiene
    Cover your coughs and sneezes. When possible, cough, sneeze or blow your nose into a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
    Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
    Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, especially after coughing or sneezing, blowing your nose, and using the bathroom. Effective handwashing takes at least 20 seconds, and includes cleaning under fingernails, between fingers, and washing the back of hands as well as the front. More proper handwashing tips »
    Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often.
    Stay in good overall health by eating right and staying active. If you are living with diabetes, heart disease or other medical condition, keep in touch with your doctor and stay current with your treatment.

    You seem to feel that somehow you are a beacon of truth. You have posted many lies, either on purpose or unintentionally. Your constant posting the lie that there was significant enough election fraud to change the outcome is just one instance.

    Re: Latest on the Corona Virus

    Boris Johnson is to unveil a plan for routine, universal Covid-19 tests as a means to ease England out of lockdown, as the government faced a renewed backlash over the idea of app-based “passports” to permit people entry into crowded places and events.

    Everyone in England to be offered twice-weekly Covid tests, PM to say

    Boris Johnson to promise universal rollout of lateral flow testing scheme in bid to ease England out of lockdown.
    You cannot make this shit up, with 47% of the UK having had at least one jab you now introduce this. The manufacturer of these rapid tests says when done at home ie not by a professional the accuracy can be as low as 58%

    Everyone in England to be offered twice-weekly Covid tests, PM to say | World news | The Guardian
    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.
