I wasn't aware that some news sites here are blocked in Europe.  I chose that site specifically because it lacked a paywall.

Very well then, googling "dodger stadium site temporarily shuts down" will get you the same basic info.

I've recently heard about another potential pandemic virus, called nipah. This one also comes from bats, fruit bats, and has a 40% - 75% mortality rate. let's hope the world has learned from the current situation. If not, we could be looking at real horror. Thank God (or the American electorate) we have a better leader in charge!
Nipah virus has been around for quite a while.

FFS.  You'd think we never had a pandemic at all.

But in good news (hopefully not soon marred by the above) NC daily cases have dropped in a sustained way, nearly halved since about a month ago.  But 5000 cases per day is still too damn high.  But at least it's getting better in a real way.

The downside is that deaths have really shot up, nearly the highest it's ever been.  :(

Every time I think I've sufficiently lowered the bar for my expectations of people I see things like this and lower it again.

Even the people wearing masks have them on their fucking chins. What good is that gonna do!? It's a mask, not a magical artifact that grants a magical effect of +10 disease resistance when worn! It's supposed to cover your mouth, AND your nose! Unless you breathe exclusively out of your mouth, under the nose is just as pointless!

Had to have a tooth checked out almost a week ago. Going to see a dentist is bad enuff without worrying about catching your death. Sitting there with no mask, mouth wide open....I know could feel the little buggers landing on my tongue setting up a dance floor, their mini disco lights reflecting off my gold crowns.

This seems risky, and I even called to put off cleaning appointments, but then I had an emergency, and I was surprised.  Compared to grocery stores and normal businesses around here, my dentist environment is probably about the safest place to go.  Personnel were masked with face shields, I was interrogated and my temperature checked before I could be seated.  These people are wearing surgical gloves, and they were first in line to get their vaccinations.    Of course, there is always risk, and you've got people sticking their fingers in your mouth, but these are medical technicians who are trained.  Where, I get my hair cut, on the other hand.  Well, I haven't had a hair cut in 9 months, and I look like I'm wearing a Halloween wig.  I just won't go to that place.  Clients or personnel were not masked.

Covid cases continue to decline in NC, though the rate of decline has slowed down a little:  3k a day, less than half what it was a month ago.

Hospitalizations are roughly half what they were a month ago as well.  And the really good news is that the % tests positive is now roughly 6% after a Jan 4th high of 17%.

There is most definitely a light at the end of the tunnel.  I can't wait for the day where this is all behind us.

So, yesterday got my 1st vaccine after being pushed into the wrong line which I had to wait an hour before talking to someone who knows what their doing. Then came home tired (because my sleep schedule is messed up) and fell asleep. I awoke 6 hours later to a body fully sore and fatigue and couldn't take a pain reliever due to information I obtained online telling us to not use pain relievers  after or before because it will hinder the vaccines goal. So a day later I'm still sore, but less than yesterday so that's a plus. But got a headache that was so blinding I ended up taking a hot shower and 2 Advil pills. I recommend only taking pain relievers if you really need them but wait awhile before so the vaccine can start doing its job.

Sorry to hear all the problems you had with your vaccine.  I had a mildly sore are for 2 days and was sort of tired for a day.  It was much like the reaction I get to the annual flu shot.  I hear that the reaction to the second shot could be more pronounced for the second one.  We shall see.
