Went to a hospital. Patiently waited for my turn to take the corona vaccine. A lady doctor recognised me and insisted on giving it personally to my wife and me. She appreciated that we behaved like aam admi. But I always do so and will always do so.
The remote self-governing Falkland Islands has delivered vaccine to 50% of its people. Justin Trudeau may have “bought more doses per capita than any other nation,” but Canada is in 58th place globally - and has vaccinated 4.7% of its people. #cdnpoli #TrudeauVaccineFailure
So just to be clear. The UK government allowed someone to get off a plane without completing a form with their name and address on it, and no one knows where they are. AND, they could have the Brazilian variant of the Covid. Wtaf! #ToriesEnemyOfThePeople #ToriesOut
So Farage in his attempt to blame desperate immigrants crossing the channel with Covid surveys our coastal borders and meanwhile travellers from South America arrive at our airports bringing in the new variant...”Hey Nige it’s behind you”
🇧🇷 Brazil Covid variant that may evade vaccines now uncontrolled in Gloucestershire 🧐 Exactly the reason we called for strict border quarantine 🤬 Sadly the brilliance of our scientists is overwhelmed by the incompetence of our politicians
It is VERY strange seeing people way too comfortable gathering in large numbers as if we aren’t in a pandemic...and even with a vaccine social distancing and mask wearing is still a must according to the WHO...y’all just “we tired of this shit” and then chose selfishness lol
A year ago tonight, after days of @CPAC dismissing Covid concern as lies to hurt Trump, he stood up & said, "This is their new hoax." In response, a year ago tomorrow, my family locked down. I told everyone, "There's no one in charge. We're on our own. But we will survive this"
Honestly, why should we isolate at home, virtually be imprisoned - whilst the same Govt. who imposes those rules on us is happily letting illegal immigrants into the UK, with who knows what diseases & variants of Covid to continue to infect US!!!!
Trump left us in a place where nearly 500000 had died of COVID Trump left us after inspiring, directing, propelling a mob to the Capitol to violently prevent transfer of power But Republicans in Congress still joined a CPAC where Trump repeated his Big Lie today Unconscionable
As of Sunday 28 February, 49.9m Americans had received one dose of vaccine and 24.8 m had been fully vaccinated. The population of Australia is 25m. There needs to be absolute transparency over pace, targets and organisation of the rollout. @abc730
9 years of Harper was bad enough. Then came Scheer and then O’Toole. The bullshit distractions the past 6 years especially during Covid is too stressful & too much to take from them. My opinion of Cons is tainted forever & unfortunately anyone else who supports their bullshit.
An army division's worth of migrants will arrive in this country illegally this yr, at huge expense to the taxpayer and even greater risk to the public given the incidence of Covid. The government needs to stop recycling the same feckless responses and TAKE ACTION!
When will the @BBCNews stop repeating the lie that the U.K. economy suffered greater re covid than any major economy. It didn’t. We include things like education in our GDP which others don’t. So close a school & GDP drops here, but not in say France.
Really annoyed, my grandad is having a cancer operation on Monday so he took a Covid test and it was picked up by a courier then it came back "inconclusive" so they're cancelling his operation. Letting the cancer spread for several more weeks, nice way to prevent deaths. 😡
February 2021: 🇲🇲 Myanmar coup 🇺🇸 Texas power crisis 🇦🇺 Australia vs Facebook 🌐 Bitcoin hits $50,000 🇨🇳 China bans BBC 🇦🇪 UAE reaches Mars 🇺🇸 NASA lands on Mars 🇮🇳 India sends vaccines globally 📉 Covid cases drop 🚨 First US airstrike under Biden
comparing a group of asian men to covid is racist. this hateful vitriol has caused a surge of anti-asian violence across the globe. hold matthias matuschik accountable @bayern3 cuz we won’t stop unless you do #GermanMEDIA_racism #WeCantBeSilenced #RacistGermanMedia
The more people that get vaccinated, the faster we will beat this pandemic. That’s why one of my first goals is to administer 100 million COVID-19 vaccine shots in our first 100 days. I’m proud to say we’re over halfway to our goal and weeks ahead of schedule.
Vaccine passports are not inevitable. They (Blair & the others pushing them) want you to think they’re inevitable in order to drive up vaccination rates to the highest possible levels (90%+) which would then make vaccination passports inevitable. The whole thing’s a psy op.
Over 250,000 Covid-19 deaths in Brazil, and growing. Health system collapsing in most states. Meanwhile the president and his sons are speaking out against lockdowns and masks, and denying vaccines for our people. #StopBolsonaro #SOSBrazil #BrazilianLivesMatter
Rundown of PH's supply of COVID-19 vaccine: *600,000 doses of Sinovac donated by China arrived today *Arrival of 525,600 doses of AstraZeneca via COVAX delayed by a week *No COVID-19 vaccine paid for by PH govt has been delivered *Govt alloted P72.5 B for buying COVID-19 vaccines
Exactly one year ago today we had the first UK death from Covid. China already had 2,835 deaths. I still hadn't attended a Cobra meeting. But the following day I found time to have a break at Chequers and announce my engagement.
Remember that vaccine efficacy was measured under conditions of masks and social distancing Efficacy is the sum of biological protection of the vaccine and protection resulting from public behavior. If behavior changes, efficacy will likely decline, perhaps even significantly
Getting more frustrated every day that everyone is only talking about preventing hospitalization and death as the goal of vaccination and absolutely no one is recognizing or discussing the extreme impact of long-haul Covid and how chronic illness is a horrible life sentence.
Every House Republican voted against: — $1,400 stimulus checks — Increased unemployment benefits — State & local government aid — $3,000+ child tax credits — Funds to reopen schools — Funds for vaccine distribution — Funds for rental assistance — Small business relief
