Now here is a thought since vaccines involve injecting us with de-natured virus; if the virus doesn't exist what are they injecting people with ?
This article gives a fairly simple explanation and a short video (4 min). Here in the US, both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines use mRNA... no live virus at all. Johnson & Johnson uses a disabled adenovirus to deliver the vaccine instructions to your immune system. Having trials (still ongoing) using various techniques will help to determine which is most effective, safe, and of course, which is cheapest to produce.

Just a few words to settle a few ruffled feathers,in a Thread, which was, after all, started by me :)

I started the Thread because I knew that a number of people, myself included, had a (sometimes emotional) need to share their experiences on the Pandemic that has changed not only the course of our lives, ended so many other lives, adversely impacted the economies of almost every nation it has touched, and so on.

After getting off to a slow start, the Thread picked up pace, and became more visible to the masses, not long after the diligent efforts of @MatsuShimizu and others (all of whom I thank) started giving us an interesting picture of this unprecedented phenomenon.

That being said, this Forum and website is not designed to act as a scientific authority, and to prove this or disprove that.

That, in the judgement of Staff here, is best left where it SHOULD be, and that is in the province of reputable scientific and medical authorities, some of which have already been named here.

@msrachelroodes

If you cant answer the question then please dont attack me and discriminate against me nor judge me just for not knowing something, hence asking the question.
I endorse that.

The rules for the Off Topic subforum can be found here, pinned to the top of the entry page

https://linux.org/threads/off-topic-rules-please-read-before-you-first-post.23879/

The part that I am responsible for providing begins with "Political".

The Rules for the site are not overly large, and they are here, and anyone who joined agreed to them in doing so.

https://linux.org/help/terms/

...as i thought the whole purpose of these chat forums was for us that dont know something and those whom do know something to communicate such although i am rather new so i am just presuming prior that i could ask a question if i want the answer.
No, that could be seen as the mandate of the Support (for Linux) Forums and subforums. It is unreasonable to expect that of Off Topic, so I hope that explains.

Thank you.

interesting to note that in Sydney, Australia...a birthday party had a total of 30 or 31 attendees ( my memory fails me here)

One of these people was carrying the Delta variant of Covid 19.
This was established by scientific analysis on the part of the Dept of Health in Australia.

Of the remaining 29 party attendees, 24 were found to be infected with that Delta variant.

The remaining 6 people were found to be NOT infected, despite being in the same room/area as all the others.
They had been Vaccinated.

Ugh... Those are high numbers for one region, but no vaccine has 100% efficacy rates. I'd be looking into seeing why it's that high there, and not elsewhere.
Here in Texas people are believing the pandemic is over and the vaccines is effective. I can go not to far and i can see Chucky cheese is open for the kids to play and more people are traveling . Even my dad who has heart problem has been traveling . people think it cant happen to them

Maine gets a ton of its income from tourism, so we're opened up as well. I'm fully vaccinated but I still wear my mask, keep my hands clean, and practice social distancing.

Maine was doing excellent last year and, sure enough, they opened up (quite a bit) for the tourists. Sure enough, the tourists came and it started to spike. Then, the kids went back to school and Maine's numbers started to equal other states on a per capita basis.

It is what it is, I guess. 'Snot like we can change anything but our own behavior.
