  • Nobody will be touching, hugging or kissing me, those are gone for forever. I don't allow my friends to come close to me and it won't change after pandemic ends.

    • I'm sorry for that, spiritboy :( . If I remember correctly, it's quite normal in your culture to get touchy with each other.

        -----

        The overall incidence in Germany is sinking, but some regions refuse to join the pattern. My region is one of them as the incidence keeps rising lately. The hotspot region is in Thuringia (which is known for being heavily affected by Corona for long) with an incidence of more than 500.

            You're already eligible? My country's vaccine rate is higher than yours, and I'm not eligible yet.

              • 7 cases of the Indian variant have been found in Northern Ireland. IT seems this has made its way to a few European areas ( geographically) at this stage.

                • Countries that are "fully" vaccinated (% of population):

                  Is it right that nobody in Ukraine is fully vaccinated?!

                            • So some EU countries are actually further ahead than us (Hungary/Malta) but I guess that’s because we have been waiting longer for the second dose and getting the first dose to more people. Malta is actually high on the list of places I want to visit.

                                  Nice. Turkey would probably want 100 dollars from us if they knew they could get away with this

                                  Biontech offered to sell their vaccine to Turkey without profit but they didn't accept it cause they can't smuggle money. But they could do it with Chinese vaccine, that's why they chose it over Pfizer vaccine

                                    • $100 is definitely something worth thinking about, and I'd rather have positive than negative stimuli ;) .
                                      In Germany, it'd probably go like this: 'You don't get vaccinated? Well, then stay at home all day.' :/ .

                                        The US has gotten private companies on board so there are all manner of incentives now.

                                        Eg. NFL offering Superbowl tickets, free donuts, free Uber/Lyft rides, etc etc.

                                        It wouldn't surprise me if we start seeing some music stars do something soon.

                                        • In the US/UK, first vaccine rates are only rising slowly now. Are all age groups already open or what's harming the rise at the moment?

                                          • Just signed up for my vaccines and I will get the first one on the 1st June, second in late June!

                                            Came completely unexpected. Switzerland was so behind everyone else, today suddenly everyone from 16+ years old was able to sign up (only limited space though).

                                            • Choice of Covid vaccines to be offered to Britons under 40
                                              https://www.theguardian.com/society/...ll-as-under-30

                                              A choice of Covid vaccines is to be extended from the under-30s to anyone up to the age of 40, after a recommendation by the government’s advisory body to allow more people to opt out of the AstraZeneca shot, which has been linked to rare cases of blood clots, it has emerged.

                                              Very small numbers of people have suffered from blood clots in the veins and the brain, in combination with low platelets. Investigations by UK and European regulators have linked these events to the AstraZeneca vaccine, while in the United States cases have been reported following the Johnson & Johnson jab, which is made in a similar way.

                                              There have been over 200 cases in the UK according to Dr Sue Pavord, who is on the haematologists’ working group that is monitoring the cases in the UK, but that is among many millions of doses of vaccine.

                                              However, those affected tend to be younger people, even though relatively few of the youngest adults have yet been vaccinated. “We’re seeing it affecting quite young ages so the median age of our cases is actually 49, which is relatively young,” she said at a Royal Society of Medicine event on Thursday.

                                              More:

                                                    No, no risk group. Everyone from 16+ years old can sign up now, at least in the Canton Zurich (which did the "worst" when it comes to vaccines so far, so this came as a big surprise earlier today).

                                                    Also now that I'm signed up, I'm still a bit worried if the vaccines are "ok" or not. But I guess there's no other option and I'll simply go with it. Fingers crossed we won't regret it in 10 years or so
