D&D and the rising pandemic

3 day lockdown in NZ, Level 3 Auckland level 2 everywhere else.

Level 3 closes most things but takeaways with distancing is allowed, level 2 you can dine out with distancing and limits on numbers in stores.

A crazy anti covid group, who call themselves Virus Delussion, managed to get the evening curfew overturned in the Dutch courts this week. So the Dutch government is scrambling to get that curfew extended again.

I am not a fan of the curfew either, but I'd rather not ever be caught on the same side of any Covid related issue as that group of crazy conspiracy nutcases. This is a group that helps spread dangerous misinformation about the virus.

However, I've heard such groups are hardly a rare sight at the moment.

True that. 10% don't want vaccine here 20% vaccine shy (maybe take it), 70% plan on taking it.
The last I saw for here were... 40% are begging for a shot in the arm. 40% are not against vaccines in general, but shy about this one for various reasons, and 20% reject the idea.

Luckily, if we reach that 80%, that's enough to reach herd immunity with the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines.

yeh they are philosophic peas in a pod, lack willingness to do even the most basic preventative measures to stop horrid diseases over a fundamental distrust in science.
One would think high #s of these types would be among the 1st victims of things like a pandemic.....

As we have said, several times over in this thread - covid 19 is the disease where, if you get it, the most likely result is SOMEONE ELSE DIES.

Ok, this is kind of ridiculous, kind of infuriating, and kind of how can we care anymore. One of the most populated municipalities in the country -which has about the highest death toll- was going to open six vaccination centers. Two opened yesterday, and four more were to be opened today. Everything seemed very organized and planned, the they made an announcement at the literal eleventh hour (a few minutes before midnight!) that well, these extra centers weren't going to be opened. They made the announcement via internet at the time when most people had already gone to sleep to rise early to get in queue or were already there doing queue. Al lot of elder people staying in line at night, in the winter for naught because the ones organizing couldn't be bothered to make official announcements based on reality (They didn't have enough time to train all of the people doing the vaccination).

There is a local saying that translates "I don't even know whether to laugh or to cry anymore..." this applies...
