  • 2021

    Today is the last day of 2020. A year that will be well remembered, talked about for years to come. A year when the world came to a standstill. Who ever imagine or anticipated that Coronavirus was on the horizon. It all started in China around February, 2020. A few cases, then it reached Europe. Thousands became ill. Many, particularly the elderly were effected. Eventually it reached North America. Boarder between Canada and the U.S. were closed to all non essential travel. Européan countries locked their border’s to member countries.The virus also effected many younger individuals also. Many perished. The U.S. under the leadership of Donald Trump, I have to admit he did a few good things, enacted warp speed to get the drug companies to develop a vaccine. Usually it takes about two years to develop a vaccine. In less than a year, vaccines were developed in the U.K, Germany, United States and Russia. Hopefully by this time, next year, the world will be back to some normalcy, until the next virus comes along. Happy New year to all.

        Happy new year.

        I pray corona bug is decimated, and no one has to wait too long for their injections.

          Vaccines are becoming available. But, it’s going to take time to inoculate the entire world. What frightens me, some people say the will not get the vaccine. How effective will these vaccines be? Will it be a procedure like the flu vaccine. Every year it’s recommended we get our flu shot. Many don’t.

            The way I see it, the vaccine should not be compulsory in a legal sense - but... no-one who has chosen not to have it (as opposed to those for whom it is medically contra-indicated) should be at all surprised if they find that large parts of their lives (workplaces, cinemas, stadiums, schools, shopping centres) are off-limits to them without proof of being inocculated. That kind of makes it de-facto compulsory ;-)

              I'm sure you mean eliminated. Decimating is only a reduction of 10% .

                  Healthy people who stubbornly refuse the new vaccine are just prolonging this living nightmare for everyone else.

                  Alright, there may be side-effects in some, but I'll take my chances.

                    I fully agree Mark, I want to get the whole thing done and dusted and get back to some normality. Give me the vaccine.

                          I won't be taking any chances, no siree. Been there, done that. Got shingles exactly two years after being vaccinated. Horrible.

                            If it was two years later, how do you know that the vaccine caused it? If it had been a few days/weeks later, there might have been some cause-and-effect. But after two years, that's stetching things a little ;-)

                            I've never had shingles - and I hope I never do: the symptoms sound nasty.

                              True, I can't know for sure that the vaccine caused it, I can only suspect it might have done, even after two years. After all, it's a virus that lies dormant in a nerve for decades after chicken pox in childhood until something triggers it to break out as shingles.
                              What I can say for sure though, is that the vaccine didn't protect me!
