Coronavirus Pandemic

The worst part of this is how populism keeps us from actually solving this - no politician wants to take the reigns and actually try to end it, because voters are too used to being told what they want to hear. It would be political suicide to actually take action.

Take this to the climate debate and everything still applies:

Basically the book ends by suggesting if we want to keep under 2 degrees we need to start cancelling coal/gas plant contracts, shuttering the same, stopping all new fossil fuel exploration, getting internal combustion engines off the road and stopping the use of generators/mini versions of power plants on major buildings that use fossil fuels.

That isn't politically manageable - probably in any context - but especially so in our current context.

We're in for a wild ride this century and not just from communicable disease. So much of our covid response failure feels rooted in the same dynamics affecting our climate response. Leigh Phillips charts a way out with central planning and technology in his work but we could never embark on that without cries of "tyranny" and "socialism!"

Booster hangover was just as bad as ever, this morning sucked from the aches and exhaustion. Wife finally got to experience her own after escaping unscathed the first 2 doses. She had a really sorry arm, but more interesting a dizzy spell from her blood pressure dropping in the middle of the night, as well as wicked chills. It's now 24 hours from the injection and we're both almost back to 100b percent (and expect to be Thursday morning after a good night's sleep).:)

Should I book the next day off? I get mine on Jan 9

Both of us back at 100% after a good night's rest. :)

We're essentially going on with herd immunity, vaxxed ppl can be asymptomatic and go about their usual daily lives, no more PCR availability for most things, schools open, and 1,000 person capacity limits for big events. And more. Wow.

So, as I sat with baited breath to watch yesterday’s announcement from our chief medical officer (insert tounge in cheek) I am starting to wonder if his medical degree came out of a box of cracker jacks.

So if in fact delaying back to school by 2 days allows you time to deploy N95 masks to staff and get some Hepa air purifiers into classrooms, one might wonder if perhaps this is something that, well I don’t know, probably should have been done a long time ago.

And as for reporting any daily case numbers, you may as well just stop reporting. As the majority of people no longer qualify for a PCR test, and that is the data being used to provide reportin, why even bother.

Oh look, our daily case count has significantly dropped. What a great job we are doing. What a crock of shit.

If you have symptoms assume you have Covid. Or perhaps you might just have cold and would like to make sure before you go into work or to the store or see a family member.

Now if rapid test kits were readily available to all, then perhaps this might make a little more sense.

I have several family members who have tested positive on their PCR and have been sick this week. They were fortunate enough to have rapid testing available to them and lucky enough to be able to get a PCR test. Most people are not that fortunate.

I was, and will still try to pick up a PCR test from my pharmacist this morning however after yesterday’s announcement I’m not sure if I will be able to get it.

Im interacting with people all day as part of my job, always wearing my N95 mask, but I would like to get a test as I’ve been feeling a little off this week. And I sure don’t want my wife, daughter, or anyone else to get sick.

All around gong show how this has and is being handled.

End of rant.

Wishing everyone a safe a Happy New Year and here’s to better days in 2022.

First day back to school for my daughter in the new / not so new world in which we currently live.

I am very fortunate and recognize how “lucky” I am in that on the 1 day a week my wife is in the office, I am home. And we only have one child (grade 7).

Today I’m thinking of all those parents who are not in my situation and how they and their families are dealing with this. It’s hard enough to keep 1 child focused and engaged for any length of time, nevermind people who have multiple children. My neighbor around the corner has 5 kids, oldest being 16 and youngest is 7. Cant even imagine trying to manage that one. And the mom is a teacher.

So to all the parents and kids, I salute you. Stay strong, stay positive, and just do the best you can, whatever that may look like.
