    We were shown on the other side of the pond, body bags in lorry refrigerator containers outside morgues in one City in the U.S, and it was supposed to be commonplace in most cities, so the figures might turn out to be high, but as we all know the press need to hype everything up as it sells papers andmakes news!!!
    I was waiting for the body bags to start piling up after all our recent super spreader events, but not even one little heap

    I just found out that coming to good ole SA is not a big problem right now. Not even quarantine upon return. I’ll start planning for September. Let’s hope.
    My technicians seem to be required a visum. But then on other sites not. Who knows…

    I forget what the deal was with the refrigerator trucks and the body bags. It wasn't what they made it out to be, that much I remember. It most certainly wasn't common. There were maybe half a dozen cities that had the temporary morgues and trucks and most of them were for only a short period. El Paso was one I think, NYC.

    They track excess deaths which are the numbers of deaths above a 5 year average. Last year we were about 10-11% higher than usual. This year the stats for this have also disappeared because we are well below average for the year. Those that were going to die, died last year. I was making note of this in my earlier posts. The nice little charts and graphs on this ended in January which is when the decline started.

    One of the articles I did find was a comparison of Covid to the Spanish influenza. Covid deaths in the US have now surpassed that of the Spanish Influenza. They of course make a huge deal of this and omit that the population of the US was a fraction of what it is now and if the rate was the same, deaths from Covid would be five times larger than they actually are.

    It's a curious thing pandemic modelling, the problem being that the people commissioning the work have a particular axe to grind and slant the results accordingly....

    Here's an alarming one, the latest modeling from the UKicon last night, they have worked out that, should the UK have not had been so quick off the mark, getting people vaccinated, we would have had 60,000 more deaths by now .... To put that into context, about a third more!

    It's a sobering number guys....

    I must admit that I don't understand anything anymore about this pandemic. And I'm trusting no one anymore.
    As I already wrote since long time, I keep behaving responsibly towards other people, respecting the basic rules when with people and under a roof, but doing what I want and feel like doing when in the open or at home. Or with friends.
    I'm vaccinated and don't want to hear any more Bravo Sierra about being infective potentially, about swabs, about limitations to my freedom.
    I did what they wanted and I too felt was right, now stop busting my b...!

    I am slowly coming to the conclusion that they want a civil war in the United Statesicon. For what purpose I have no idea but they are attempting to bring back mask mandates and over half the nation is simply going to refuse.

    We've seen what they do, nothing. Same with the shutdowns which they are also talking about.



    The US House of Representatives and the US Senate are in the same building. Different chambers, one on the left, one on the right. The House Speaker, Pelosi is mandating masks, I think they've all been vaccinated by now. So you go into the House side and the Capitol Police see you without a mask, they are to arrest you and fine you $1000 for the first offense. This is for Congressmen, I don't think she has the authority to do anything to people coming in off the street but who knows. The Senate side has no mandate. It's ridiculous.

    Leftist cities are the first to go with the mandates.

    This Babylonbee (satire site) post about says it all: Compromise Reached: Everyone Still Afraid Of COVID Will Be Locked Down, Everyone Else Will Live Lives As Normal | The Babylon Bee

    The CDC has come out with another asinine move recommending masks for school children who this disease does not affect and who we now know are very low at even getting it or transmitting it. Our Governor, big time leftist that went overboard with the shutdowns has surprisingly, no shockingly stated Pennsylvania will not institute a mask mandate for schools. Perhaps he got the message that his days would be numbered if he did.

    We had Biden say that people on an airliner when eating would have to pull the mask down to bite, then put it up to chew. LOL what a fiasco. He is also starting to mandate vaccinations for federal employees.

    All this for a disease that is now below the seasonal flu in cases and danger. Cases are going up a bit but deaths have continued to go down as well has hospitalizations to the point they no longer mention them. They can't mention them, it destroys their entire narrative of fear.

    Traveling a bit this extended weekend. In Cleveland Ohio, about 6 hours from home. News is about the same as home. Increasing numbers of confirmed cases etc. You must wear a mask or we're all going to die.

    Wait staff is for the most part masking. A very small percentage of everyone else is. Life going on as normal for the most part. Museum we walked past last night kind of creeped me out. There where about 100 people inside seated, staring forward towards the glass, all wearing the identical mask. Hundreds of candles in front of the glass. I mentioned it looked like a cult meeting of some sort to my daughter and she laughed and said they were watching a performance. Sure enough, there was a woman playing a violin that I hadn't seen.

    This was the science museum. We were touring the museum next door, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Very few masks in there.

    I just came back from Holland and then Germanyicon. In Holland, apart from the airport, no mask required.
    Handshakes, normal life.
    In Germany: FFP2 mask mandatory, lots of people keeping the mask also outside, but also lots who don't.
    Different feeling.
    Germany put Holland in the high risk areas on past Sunday, so I've been thoroughly checked when I entered Germany from Amsterdam, but being vaccinated, I had no problems.
    In any case, again in Europe, everybody goes his own way...
    And we call it Union...
