Flu shot acquired.

Was rewarded by the universe with seeing this very nerdy vehicle in the parking lot. Look closely at the Jeep logo...

I won't go into any great detail but rewarded for Covid response.


Landslide. I'll leave it there but yeah Covid was the big thing.
We may be heading a landslide for a sort of inverse reason apparently the guy who fired the pandemic response team, threw away their plan and tried like hell to defund the cdc, (functionally recalling scientists from other countries) even before subsequently pretending it wasn't so bad and politicizing response to it and pushing against the best practices may get a repercussion. Of note our prior two high office holders a republican and a democrat actually improved our and the world's ability to respond to the pandemic. Some of us at least hope that the guy who takes no responsibility will be held responsible.

Mod Note:

Folks...

You remember that, a couple hundred pages back, some folks got banned from the thread, and got vacations from the site, over politics in this discussion? If not, please consider yourselves reminded. Thanks.

Well, good(¿?) news. Turns out my great uncle was actually accounted for. His test came positive a few days after the funeral. So, at least he is in the books I guess?

I mean, it is one less grievance with the health ministry and their poor handling of this all. Just one...

That's good for making sure all the deaths get counted, but I'm sorry he died.
 

No one that I personally know has died of the coronavirus (yet), but my cousin's grandmother did die a few weeks back from this virus. Her son (my cousin's father) was (is?) an anti-masker and pushing for my county to open up since late April. I know it sounds awful, but I really hope that he learned something from this.

I fully expect more cases. Hopefully they can nip it in the bud asap and avoid lockdowns.
Hopefully. Close contacts are already isolated, just depends if he interacted with any people as he travelled between Napier and Auckland and if the places he did have co tact with are able to sterilise everything he may have been in contact with

I think what will happen is where possible they will lock down individuals and families vs whole cities.

Crazies got throughout rejected last night as well.

Like it or not Auckland's fairly critical for the country. I would be more surprised if there's no further outbreaks.

Met my first person who knew someone with Covid. Our usual waitress is from the UK and her brother back home got it.
 

Update on my friend's condition:

She used to love going hiking, but now she can't walk a few steps without being out of breath, her head being covered in sweat, and her heart going nuts. She's walking around with a heart monitor and getting medication. I asked her if she is noticing day to day improvements, but honestly, she's not. (Got to appreciate Dutch directness. If you ask a Dutch person how they are feeling, they will be brutally honest with you.)

Each day has its ups and downs, but there is not a feeling she is improving at all. She must have gotten it at her poorly ventilated office in Ireland, which still operates as if nothing is going on. At least she can work from home now. Meanwhile the office continues with the bare minimum of caution: some social distancing and screens between desks, but still poorly ventilated. So many of her colleagues have gotten sick too. I don't know if this is how most businesses in Ireland deal with this pandemic.

One of my cousins got Covid and while he didn't need to be hospitalized, is one of those unfortunates that has been having recurring effects for going on 5 months now. :(
