    Ehm, no? I just had to look this up, it sounded too odd.

    The CDC advises (HCP = healthcare personnel):
    "In general, asymptomatic HCP who have had a higher-risk exposure do not require work restriction if they have received all COVID-19 vaccine doses, including booster dose, as recommended by CDC and do not develop symptoms or test positive for SARS-CoV-2."

    There's also a nice little table with advice for different situations. In times of crisis healthcare personnel that tests positive but is asymptomatic or has mild symptoms can work. In times of contingency, these people would be restricted from work for 5 days. In conventional periods that is 7 - 10 days.

    so far the highest daily confirmed case number from Divided states of America has been ~0,3% of the entire population getting diagnosed with covid on a single day. And that is scary.

    So yes then.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    If you assume that now is a crisis in every healthcare institution in the united states, which is based on.. exactly nothing.

    Mayo Clinic just let go 1% of its workforce (about 700 people) for not complying with the vaccine mandate.

    The pandemic is currently a health crisis in many parts of the states

    Insane tbh, but from what i hear the testing capacity is maxed out anyways. So might be significantly more.

    How long until you have the entire population infected or recovered at that rate? A month?

    Hell yeah, people should thank anyone working+fully vaccinated in healthcare on a daily basis. Add any essential worker to that list, grocery workers, garbage collection, water+electricity, firefighters, police. Without them a functioning society would not exists.

    I'm not in healthcare but even a little appreciation can go long ways. The other day i dropped a little basket with sweets+cookies at the ICU desk for the night shift.

    Yep, current estimations for Germany is at the latest end of march. We may get herd immunity thanks to omicron and the Pandemic will be an Endemic.
    Does a population have informed consent when that population is not taught the inner workings of its monetary system, and then is drawn, all unknowing, into economic adventures?

    He's made some truly shitty stuff as well IMHO but I can easily forgive him because his good stuff is hilarious.

    This seems to be happening "everywhere" so not isolated to the US.

    Some dumbasses want to actually physically hurt healthcare workers - because why not.

    A Delta-Omicron hybrid was identified and guess what. It isn't good.


    But hey-ho, Omicron is "mild" and everything will be all right.

    Looks like Deltacron might just have been a contaminated sample.
