    I support that in principle, and if it was a black and white choice between that and the current situation I'd vote for it. But I'd prefer a more open and nuanced debate. And I think the deliberate push to avoid that is responsible for a lot of the shit happening now.

    I would have thought that it was obvious. Countries that have a high prevalence of covid first must have active national borders and a constant movement and mixing of the population. Countres like Mali and Congo etc are subsistence farmers, hunters and gatherers, work locally and would be unlikely to move far away from their home base.

    Anyone who can follow a graph could predict this. Cases +18days is relative to deaths.....

    The first jab of vaccine only makes you 33% effective... Need 2 doses now:rolling_eyes:
    They worked this out in Israel after 2 million had been given it. And now there is problems with people in UK who have yet to get a 2nd jab and how long have waited :rolling_eyes:
    If you ask me it seems like some guess work by trial and error. Line up people.:rolling_eyes:

    Pretty sure that all vaccines were up front about requiring a follow up jab.

    there's probably a whole heap of reasons why most of african seems low

    • they don't test the f**k out of everyone (mentioned in that article)
    • as gronk mentioned, the less dense populations living locally
    • is there as high an elderly population in much of africa, or do they not have the population and life expectancy?
    • do they suffer from the kind of illnesses that its been recognised covid affects more? (I know they don't have great health in many places, but is it the matching issues?)
    • climate?

    Seems like there unsure how to roll it out. And they've said Australia is sitting back and watching first.

    I have no issues with a vaccine. But I also do not want to be some guinea pig that ends up with side effects.
    These large drug companies will make billions of this. It was and still is a race to get the first and most effective vaccine. I know when I rush at work I can occasionally take short cuts or make mistakes. It is never as good as when I take my time.
    So whatever type of worker you are I will gaurantee these guys are rushed and being pushed. Research workers have to be able to justify results. And of course they would be doing a great job but I reckon there is margin for error. And its higher then in normal circumstances.

    I still wouldn't be completely convinced that things like Autism in some cases is not a human made product.

    Osbestos was safe
    Baby powder was safe
    Nobody new of silicosis 5yrs ago
    Pesticides where safe
    Sugar was fine

    All these things where around for years prior to being exposed.
