    Is that right? That's very scary. We've kind of used the outdoors as a safe space.

      If you can smell a person's perfume/cologne/aftershave, you are in exposure range and have picked up particles.

      Bah gawd I'm staying out of the Italian neighborhoods

  • MF is going to pre-k run by my school district. I didn’t mask at summer school, but all but one of my students did. I don’t think any of them were vaccinated. I’ll be masked to start school and so will my three personal children, two of whom are vaccinated. Thankfully though our great governor has made sure that we all have the freedom to get everyone sick.

      Not enough data to know.

        I think with this Delta variant we are facing a reality that most every unvaccinated person will contract the virus. So the looming question is how many children will be seriously impacted and if there is anything that can be done to mitigate this.
        After Delta comes Lambda which is pushing cases very high in Peru. 81% of cases there. That was end of June when Peru led the world in covid cases. So, naturally there is a lot of worry about Lambda. Conversely, perhaps because Peru is such a poor country that the outcomes are so grim.

        My new favorite follow for all things covid is Stuart Neil in Great Britain. (On Twitter)

          Delta has an R0 of 8-10. Wild type SARSCoV2 was 2-3. Its getting ugly folks.

                • I read today about a double-vaxxed guy in P-Town catching COVID and getting really sick with it for a couple of days. That's not the type of thing I need to be reading. I guess the positive thing is he didn't die or end up in the hospital.

                  • We were able to stop MF inhalers on her last day of school. I wonder if they’re going to make us start them back. They didn’t want to take her off of them until she wasn’t around kids all the time.

                      Yes. It is considered controllable (wo vaccine) if the R0 is less than 1. wt SARSCoV2 was 2-3, alpha 3-5, smallpox 5-8, measles 13-18.

                          Regarding Delta variant:
                          Sure. There is breakthrough with both Pfizer, and moderna. Weirdly J & J does the best of the three. So, if you are doublevaxxed or have J & J, you should be fine. Virtually 100% protection from serious disease. Not sure if the vax helps significantly with long covid, though, although it should--it just hasn't been studied.

                              I’ve tried several times.
