They wouldn't be deployed if the implied force of military action wasn't projected.Can this be called martial law? In other words: Please define "help":
I been to OZ several times and love the place but ...Like in other places, we here in Oz have pea-brained selfish folk who just will not stoop to wearing masks as it must interfere with their good looks.
They just do not care for the welfare of others.
Some time ago, we had an infected guy drive through out city and stop here then "forgot" to mention it when asked.
He was responsible for quite a quite a few infections along his trip as he went and sat to eat in places when his permit only allowed drive through.
It only takes a few to make it really hard on those who do the correct thing.
This is something I have had real problems with understanding all along.
If you want to stop the lock downs, just do what is asked on medical grounds and forget the politics!
My wife is from USA and we are really pleased we live in Australia.
13 of our friends over there have had Covid19, and 1 has died.
I do not personally know anyone here who has caught it.
And as I already have damaged lungs, I definitely do not want to get it!
There was a 'shortage' of urgency in OZ. Your vax rate is low because of pandemic policy that coasted in the isolation from the worlds coronavirus problem for nearly a year will no sense of urgency for people to get vaccinated until deltaThe vaccination rate is low because we've had a *shortage*.
You're in competition with countries that are breeding grounds for future variants so you're not on the top of the list at the present time. While your case levels are breaking the local COVID Zero policy OZ wishes to maintain, they are not at world emergency levels where 1st gen vaccines are fighting a firestorm that might sweep the world in a few months from places like Brazil or Indonesia where the US is sends large amounts of doses.Dear USA,
Give us more vaccines.
"A big part of the problem has been access to supplies..."
Pfizer and Moderna’s mRNA vaccines represent the cream of the current crop—and many low- to middle-income countries have only restricted access to both. Their reserves are stocked with Covid-19 vaccines that still possess protective capabilities, but pack a more modest punch, especially against new SARS-CoV-2 variants. According to one study, against the Beta variant, the ability of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to protect from severe illness and death remains at 97 percent. For the AstraZeneca vaccine, according to another study, that percentage is just 10.4.
The Delta variant, which now accounts for the lion’s share of new Covid-19 infections in many countries, is even more infectious and lethal than the Beta variant—yet another reason why we need more tools in our arsenal capable of generating vigorous immune protection. We can expect clinical trials for at least one candidate, the heat-tolerant hCMP-mRBD vaccine, to be held later this year. My hope is they arrive at our doorstep before a variant even more infectious than Delta gets there first.
So far the longer term T-Cell protection is intact from 1st gen vaccination and prior infection as a prevention from serious COVID-19 sickness caused by variant infection.The heat-tolerant hCMP-mRBD vaccine sounds promising.
However, with trials to start later this year, I'm not going to hold my breath. At this stage it has only been administered to mice and guinea pigs in tandem (with great results), but we need to remember that a human body can behave differently, so we'll have to wait and see how the trials go.
From everything I have read, T cell protection is not well understood, but appears to be working.So far the longer term T-Cell protection is intact from 1st gen vaccination and prior infection as a prevention from serious COVID-19 sickness caused by variant infection.
If your goal is to reduce COVID-19 sickness the 1st gen vaccines will work but if your goal is to reduce total cases to some very low level, today's vaccines are increasingly less effective with each more contagious variant.
The alternative is a hell of lot more deaths from COVID-19. It's well worth the small risk from all the data we currently have on side-effects of the vaccines.From everything I have read, T cell protection is not well understood, but appears to be working.
So far the only goal I see is to pump as many vaccines and booster shots into as many people as possible without really asking any questions.
