    I can see why that acronymic organisation you quote has - in your mind - such a large membership. 99% of experts would disagree.

    Refreshingly on this thread we do not need to rely on experts. Could you give us your estimate for:

    I think it has gone up with the increased transmissibility of delta COVID to around 85% or more. In any case the idea is that because natural immunity does not last, especially against new variants, and some countries will go on…

    I looked for this study and did not have enough information to find it. It is out of date since will be original COVID not alpha variant which we know is more lethal, not delta where we are not sure about lethality.

    OK - so that…

    Until herd immunity is reached. You will probably be safe then, even if you have not been vaccinated. No one knows at what percent herd immunity begins, but experts estimate it is somewhere at 70% to 80%. At that point the virus…

    I find it difficult at best to understand W's figures, and when I check them they turn out wrong often as not, because he counts all temporally associated events with vaccines as caused by vaccines. And he accepts poor evidence of…

    That should be food for thought for Americans. Many Americans who lived through WWII or look back on it think we would never be as crazy as the Japanese were. We would never be so fanatical. They say things like: "Why didn't they…

    Well, even if it is apocryphal, there are COUNTLESS similar news stories on record with videos of the doctors, patients and widows saying the same things. There is no doubt what she says is happening. A large fraction of the public…

    Perception, yes. However, feelings do not appear to affect the outcome of serious disease. That's what some studies show. There has not been much research so it could be wrong. It is widely believed that a positive attitude itself…

    That is actually a great parallel for much of the COVID misinformation "you don't need a vaccine, COVID is no worse than the Flu".

    This is a complicated legal issue. Long ago I knew an Extremely Stupid Person. We're talking world-class stupid. He claimed there is no need to change the oil in an automobile. He said they sell you oil every few months but it is…

    No, they cannot. Law enforcement agencies in the U.S. can only arrest or prosecute people for acts that the Congress and other lawmakers have designated are crime. Not just "obvious" criminal acts, but criminal acts designated as…

    Exactly! At first glance it seems to say something is wrong. But it is actually only indirectly implying there may be a problem. Sort of. You have to look at the data at a 35.4 degree angle under the light from a full moon at…

    I'd recommend you all read this article carefully. Treat it as a critical thinking test.

    Another abuse of statistics! This resembles the absurd "conclusions" reached by amateurs who poke around the VAERS database. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    With not much respect, W, no that is the one thing we do not need. But I guess as anti-vaxx propaganda it sounds good.

    Uk's vaccination means super-high case rates do not translate into super-high deaths. We are doing 17X better than in second wave. Note the very high vaccination rates amongst those most at risk which drives this. Note also that I'm not certain the 17X…
