Man I wish the comments section of my local newspaper still allowed images. There would be much laughter. :hehe:

Hard to say if that would have the same impact, but better moderation would have helped. One troll was posting disgusting gifs, so they turned off posting images for everybody.

Third world countries dont have a clue about data:

All very accurate. Mexico does not have any formal health care. You sign into a clinic and pay and pay or bribe.
They must've learnt from the Dutch.

Workers at a Baltimore plant manufacturing two coronavirus vaccines accidentally conflated the vaccines’ ingredients several weeks ago, ruining about 15 million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine and forcing regulators to delay authorization of the plant’s production lines.

The plant is run by Emergent BioSolutions, a manufacturing partner to both Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca. Federal officials attributed the mistake to human error.

The mixup has halted future shipments of Johnson & Johnson doses in the United States while the Food and Drug Administration investigates. Johnson & Johnson has moved to strengthen its control over Emergent BioSolutions’ work to avoid further quality lapses.

A very interesting article about Australian research into the difference in immune response to covid-19 between children and the elderly, and how this might explain why the elderly are more at risk:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/health/2021 ... /100034994
Australian researchers have been investigating why elderly people respond so poorly to COVID-19, and theorise that it's linked to their repeated exposure to other seasonal coronaviruses.

There are seven types of coronaviruses that can infect people (including SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19 disease), four of which are common causes of acute respiratory infections.

In a study published in Nature Communications, scientists looked at blood samples from 89 healthy children, 98 adults, 57 elderly individuals and 50 COVID-19 patients, comparing antibodies to a range of coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2.

Lead author Amy Chung, laboratory head at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, said researchers hypothesised that when an elderly person was first exposed to SARS-CoV-2, their immune system viewed it as a typical, seasonal coronavirus instead of a new strain.

Dr Chung said in this case the immune memory wasn't helpful because the two were very different and needed different responses to fight off infection.

County cases not changed at all. The two weeks of snow and stay at home had lower cases. Now back to 60 a day. All people under 50 infecting each other.

Interesting article on why the UK's mortality rate is currently at its lowest in a decade...
... Finally, there is the sad fact that some vulnerable people who died in the first wave would otherwise have survived another year and be dying now. This “mortality displacement”, also known by the graphic but unfortunate term “harvesting”, often shows when a period of extreme heat or cold is followed by a dip in mortality rates.

A year ago, at the start of the first wave, one of us (David Spiegelhalter) was quoted as saying that “many people who die of Covid would have died anyway within a short period”, while others estimated this proportion could be more than half. We were wrong: the true figure looks more like his later estimate of 5% to 15%. .. .

Will the death data be corrected?

It's subject to revision, refinement, and independent scrutiny of course, but unless you can demonstrate how and to what extent mortality data is erroneous then it looks like you're just blowing hot air and making vague insinuations Scot.

But if more are popping their clogs now less will be doing it later on so the data needs correcting and the average needs to be spread over time. :tut:
