    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    From what I’ve seen, the regional-ness and the smaller volume of affected people due to vaccination status means it won’t translate into large variations in national statistics. The new outbreak started in North-West England (Bolton, Blackburn, Manchester, etc), so you have to look at the region...

    Before we get as punitive as that, I’d like to see guarantees that you will not lose pay / be fired if you need a recovery day(s) post vaccination. It’s the next thing in the list of reasons behind safety concerns. The recent Kaiser study indicated 48% gave “missing work due to side-effects,”...

    Also, likely to give Steve a headache as I'm not sure that detailed economic evaluations is what we are supposed to be doing with all the leeway we've been allowed in our covid & wdw thread.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    There will be a new mountain of data coming due to the number of infections from Delta currently occurring in UK schools. That will matter more than whatever any parent read about the original virus.

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    You conveniently left out the 2nd part of their conclusion statement "vaccines can be safely prioritized to those who have not been infected before." You and they are applying the results of their study to different scenarios. They were answering the question of who you can skip when you have...

    IMO, this would be the wrong conclusion. I had a lightbulb moment when scrolling through Twitter today, and it is related to your conclusion here. Throughout this pandemic we have been inundated with numbers and percentages, and we can recall many of them and pepper our posts with them. But...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    When we talk about "people" I think we are referring to different subsets. There is a subset within the affected professional communities who is legitimately questioning if they gave lab leak the proper examination. They consider themselves conscientious researchers, and are uncomfortable with...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    As long as people are willing to accept evidence that it wasn’t a lab leak even if it takes years, with the same fervor that they are falling over themselves with now. Zoonotic, comparatively, will be boring and time consuming and not the stuff that tickles the fancy of theorists. I am...

    You misunderstood that when I said don’t respond, I was referring to only the final bit about the timing of the sudden media interest in the US. To save some headaches for the thread mods. As to your point, there is plenty of evidence of things that “China did wrong,”without needing there to be...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    People sure seem to be in love with proving they are smart by taking the maxim to "question everything" to the point of absurdity. This time by a breast cancer researcher and a retired physicist (previously known as a former-climate change skeptic), who are apparently now experts in virology of...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I am curious to see what happens this fall. Last year, taught people that the summer was safer than winter and Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings meant bad things happened. So are there people who are unmotivated right now or those who need a longer passage of time to resolve their safety...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    I assumed you originally found the info via media reporting, and then do what I do, go to the original paper for sourcing because otherwise people get all in a tizzy about which outlet did the reporting. What made you seek out a paper with a date of June 13, 2020, and one we talked about the...

    Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

    There was one of these studies last year too. But the samples were destroyed in the process so there was no way to re-test to make sure that it was actually SARS-CoV-2 the test found and not another similar coronavirus. Looking at your link, it looks like it is the same thing but as PP mentioned...

    More a concern for the UK and other countries that have delayed second doses in order to give more people 1st doses... Delta (India's 1.617.2) variant is showing more vaccine evasiveness for Pfizer than previous variants. In study, people who have received only 1 Pfizer dose generated a...

    FastPass+ Most Certainly Not Coming Back As It Was

    @marni1971 Is there any self-awareness from WDW or corporate as to how unbalanced attendance, capacity, Fastpass distribution is? Do they recognize the error building new attractions with the capacities they have? Whatever FP option comes next, is the expectation that the distribution of...
