    the US is of course doing fine now because of vaccines....something a lot of the world isn't getting right now.

              Southeast Asia's Laos records first COVID-19 death | Reuters

              The victim was a 53-year-old Vietnamese woman who had underlying medical problems, including diabetes, and who worked at a karaoke club in a village outside the capital Vientiane, the state-run Vientiane Times website quoted the national COVID-19 taskforce as saying.

              Now the most populous country with no death is Solomon Islands (pop.701k).

                makes the mathematical case that vaccinated people can resume normal life. "If you’re fully vaccinated ... your risk of having a bad outcome from COVID is about comparable to flu, and maybe less."

                  • Active COVID cases in Israel fall below 1,000 for 1st time since March 2020

                    As Israel’s world-leading vaccination campaign continued to show its effects, the number of active COVID-19 patients in Israel dropped below 1,000 on Sunday, the lowest level since last March, while all Israeli cities have now been deemed “green” based on low infection rates.

                    https://www.timesofisrael.com/active...ce-march-2020/

                    The message is very clear and simple: mass vaccination works.

                        Wonder if the riots in Jerusalem will alter that?
