Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

Nice summary of various covid-19 related events world wide in the following article:
Example Bad News: Counterfeit Pfizer vaccines in Mexico and Poland, oxygen supply looting in India
Example Good News: UK lower hospitalization for covid likely due to vaccination.

India is experiencing oxygen shortages at hospitals as covid-19 cases continue to surge. At least 22 patients died when their oxygen supply was interrupted as a result of a leak from an oxygen tanker at Zakir Hussain Hospital in Nashik, a city in the western state of Maharashtra. There has also been looting of oxygen at a hospital in Madhya Pradesh, and in the state of Haryana, oxygen tankers are being given police protection.

Vaccine hesitancy in the UK in people in their thirties has only risen slightly since authorities said the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab is linked to a rare blood clotting syndrome. A survey by the University of Stirling found 85 per cent of 30-to-40-year-olds were planning to get the vaccine, compared with 87 per cent in a previous poll.

Counterfeit Pfizer/BioNtech covid-19 vaccines have been found in Mexico and Poland, says manufacturer Pfizer. The substance in vials seized in Poland contained an anti-wrinkle treatment.

Transmission of the coronavirus has taken place within a quarantine hotel in Perth. Two guests staying in rooms opposite each other tested positive for the virus. Initially they were thought to have caught the virus abroad, but genetic testing showed they caught it at the hotel.

Since people keep bringing up the UK (together with Israel) as a promising herald of things to come in the US, I feel it's important to remember that we are not out of the woods yet:


I share this not to be negative or because I want (!) this awful pandemic to continue, but because, as I noted a few days ago, this thread seems less concerned than it used to be with what the experts are saying.
Sending {{HUGS}} and pixie dust

Sitting at an outdoor restaurant in Orlando right now. There’s two middle age ladies talking quite loud next to me. One of them seemed to have gotten the vaccine but got it begrudgingly. The other seems like an anti vaxxer saying “get it or don’t” etc etc.

First one claimed to have “Charlie horses” and “feels like she lost taste” since getting the vaccine. I’ve not heard of any of these as a side effect.
Second person shakes her head and literally says “I would rather die to covid than lose taste for life.”

These are the people I’m concerned about. Not only did one make up seemingly new side effects, but now she’s telling her friend that needed no extra convincing to not get it.
😐😐😐

Weird thing is I have had poor smell and taste all.my life but after having it last year and being vaccinated I am noticing smells and tastes are sharper and more defined

If you ignore someone who created a thread, any thread they created disappears from view unless you scroll to the bottom of the page and click "show ignored". I believe you no longer receive notifications for that thread as well.
I tested it earlier when it was mentioned and I did get notifications from others, just not the OP. And yes, ignore threads at the bottom works too.

Yes, feeling superior about the severity of a pandemic is another of the accomplishments my parents always hoped for.
Sorry that came out of frustration on my part. I've seen it happen with others and projected onto you. I think we're cool I hope based on other conversations? Seriously not trying to be mean.

I'm going nuts with Frozen Jr (socially distanced, recorded and all that jazz) so I'm a bit short with patience lately. I apologize.

I checked the VAERS database and there are quite of few reports of loss of taste after getting the vaccine. No idea how long the symptom lasts. Seems like a metal taste in the mouth is also a common symptom.

Disclaimer: Just because it's in VAERS doesn't mean the vaccine was the cause.

The body and the brain are more intertwined than people realize. I am firmly convinced that you can cause physical symptoms by worrying about them too much. Loss of taste is a common Covid symptom. This lady may have been paranoid that the vaccine was going to make her lose taste, and now she's feeling that she's experiencing it. Or it could be a legitimate side effect. Who knows?

Regardless, though, how do you go from "I recently got the vaccine and had this side effect" to "I don't want to lose taste for life"? I am not aware of a single reported case where a side effect from the vaccine lasted more than short period of time. There are certainly no indications that any side effect would last for life.

I wish people would realize that the actual mRNA from the vaccine is completely out of your system and gone after the briefest time. After that, it's just you and your immune system building up its response.

It was the “for life” part that really jumped out to me, too. I really just have no answer as to how or why she jumped to lifetime.

1) How long masks and social distancing will be gone for good in US soon?
2) When USA will end the pandemic this year?
3) Is USA will get back to normal by this summer/fall/winter my guess is summer

We've talked before about combating vaccine hesitancy through discussion, but I think people like these will never change their minds, unfortunately.

And, as if on queue, I just saw this on my Facebook. Maybe just trust the vaccine??

Please be patient. New Jersey will follow CDC guidelines so it will probably be social distancing in public places goes first masks in public places will go last last. Nobody knows when but New Jersey will be one of the last states to reduce or end mandates

Probably next month, June or July that NJ could end mandates like masks and social distancing soon...
