@GVDBossche Herd immunity is not happening with these vaccines, even the "experts" now admit.

Instead, herd mentality appears to be leading to a thinning of the herd: "natural selection of individuals capable of resisting C-19 disease" ImageImage

“the vaccine is less effective in preventing transmission, but ... still very effective in preventing hospitalization and severe cases”

It's hard to see how the vaccines can actually end the pandemic if they're driving the evolution of resistant variants. Image

"According to federal health officials, 99.5% of deaths from Covid-19 are now among the unvaccinated. That is a real testament to the power of the vaccines."

#Singapore:
-75% of Covid infections are in vaccinated people.
-75% of the population is vaccinated.
-The vaccines were claimed to have 94%-95% efficacy.

I guess that's just how math works? 🤔

Anyway, obviously #VaccinesWork! 🤪

@GovPritzker now says the peak for Covid-19 in Illinois has "expanded" from mid-May to mid-June. There are several problems with this claim.

(1) Last month he said models showed the peak would come between late April and early May. What changed? 1/
... (2) We don't know what models Pritzker used in April. Why were they wrong?

(3) We don't know if Pritzker is using those same models now. And if so, why?

(4) What makes the models more accurate now? Why are they giving a drastically different result? 2/
(5) Or is Prizker now using different models? If so, why does he think they are more accurate?

(6) Do other models show the peak earlier?

(7) This is extremely vague.

(8) This "expansion" once again supports moving the goal posts further away. 3/
