    Organizer of B.C. hospital protests, Kristen Nagle, recently claimed that you can't catch a virus

    The fired intensive-care nurse also suggested that polio and Spanish flu were not caused by viruses, and that rabies arises from malnourishment and mistreatment
    Pardon my sarcasm, but "we" should strike a deal with China.

    The good news today is that NJ reported its Replacement rate (Rt) has fallen to 0.99 from its recent peak of 1.51. This is the first time it is under 1.00 since early July. A rate under 1.00 means the the pandemic is contracting instead of expanding.

    What has been the cause of the delay?
    Like Australia we were slow to get started. Because we were in a good position as far as covid-19 cases our Government didn't try to exert pressure to get early supplies.

    As of yesterday 30% of eligible population have had 2 Pfizer doses. 58% have at least 1 dose.

    We are on track to be fully vaccinated by year end, except for the anti vax nutjobs.
