    That's a relief. I got my first Moderna shot last Saturday and my second is the first week of May.

    Great! The US and the UK are doing really well in terms of getting the vaccine(s) to people quickly

    I haven't got a date yet but I think I'll get my shots in June or maybe July. my parents refused the shots, that's a bit worrisome

    COVID numbers in Europe are spiking again because of holiday travel and because of the Euro Soccer Championship being organized in 11 countries which involves a lot of traveling for fans. For US reference, this championship normally sees all the games in one particular country only so with COVID now it's unfortunate that this specific edition went 'Europe wide'


    Good call on having the Olympics without an audience. It would have been a mass spreading event as the Euro Championship now shows

    To the Brits on here : good luck tomorrow in the final. I'll be watching. Please take out the Italians who took out the Belgians lol. Thanks.

    About half to two out of three have only received one out of two shots. It's some of these people and also youngsters (who have received no shots at all) who are getting infected. Granted a lot of them are not so ill they need to go to hospital but the main worry is that this heightened circulation of the disease will lead to yet another variant, which might be more contagious (but hopefully not more dangerous) than the current dominant variant.

    In terms of dominant variants we went from the original strain (China) to the alpha strain (Britain) to delta (India) and possibly to 'delta plus' now. Each of these strains is more contagious than the previous one. So (in Europe) it's a race between getting people their shots and the virus strain changes.

    On the bright side Dooch the home country might take the title in soccer tonight.

    Good for them. I always root for Italy even over the USA unless itís an Italian-American represented team or person, which is rare. Weíre only 4 percent of the pop.

    In fact always root for team USA to lose. I enjoyed hearing about Nigeria embarrassing the basketball team.

    We're back to wearing masks again in my office even though we're fully vaccinated. Higher-up orders. Smh.
