    Or three weeks... (you'll recall Cuomo's endless nights of fevers and chipping teeth)

    Shocked that you would describe the fever as "horrible". If you aren't a wimp, then I would say your reaction to the vaccine was definitely in the minority. We know ScRatChY is a wimp, so I can't reliably compare his experience to yours.

    Stop name calling Cold. It’s how you get banned from forums over and over.

    Im a wimp for wanting the vaccine to work? I’m a wimp for doing what the piece of paper that I had to sign beforehand stating that you shouldn’t take the vaccine if you don’t feel well on your scheduled vaccination date?

    Im just listening to the science and I get called a wimp for it?

    Listen to the science.

    Unplug.

        Worrisome coronavirus variant now linked to half of cases in California

        New evidence suggests a more aggressive strain, spreading faster and causing worse illness

        The team found that variant represented 53% of all positive test samples collected at the 24th Street Mission BART station in San Francisco’s predominantly Latinx community between Jan. 10 and Jan. 27 — a significant increase from November when it comprised only 16% of the positive tests, according to UCSF infectious disease expert Dr. Diane Havlir.

        The Mission District study was conducted by Unidos en Salud, a volunteer-led collaboration between UC San Francisco, the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub (CZ Biohub), the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and the Latino Task Force for COVID-19. With the assistance of the community, scientists were able to investigate key questions about household transmission. Compared to the original virus, the L452R variant is somewhat more aggressive, with an elevated “secondary attack rate” of 35%, up from 25% — spreading more quickly within a home.

        Evidence for increased transmissibility was also found by Chiu’s research. His lab detected faster rates of reproduction and increased viral “shedding,” when the virus is released into the environment. It also found that the variant was more infectious when introduced to lab-grown cells and tissues.

        The proportional rise in cases statewide due to the variant was rapid, doubling every 18 days. Cases linked to the variant doubled every 14 days in Santa Clara County and 33 days in Alameda County.

        To test whether antibodies could fend off this new strain, Chiu’s team tested the cultured virus in the lab against antibodies from people who were either vaccinated or had already been infected with the virus, although not this strain. They found a two- to four-fold reduction in the ability of antibodies to fend off the variant virus. This means that vaccines might have to be re-tooled to stay effective.

        Will we need updated “booster” vaccines? While no one yet knows, Havlir called it “a definite possibility.”

        To learn whether the variant caused more severe disease, Chiu’s team studied the medical records of patients admitted for care at UCSF. After controlling for age, gender and ethnicity, it found that people infected with the variant had significantly higher odds of being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and dying.

        The L452R variant was first detected in a few isolated cases in Denmark last March and emerged in California as early as May, although we didn’t start finding it until summer and fall. It has four mutations in the genetic code for its spike-shaped protein, used by the virus to enter cells. That’s why it is more transmissible, infecting and spreading more readily.
        This is a problem...

        We can't let this spread all across the U.S. or we're looking at a 4th wave. I have no faith in half the American people though so I just hope we get lucky...

          It doesn’t matter. Your narrative has already been written. If it gets bad you’ll say told you so. If it doesn’t you’ll praise Fauci and Biden for their leadership.

            I'll always praise Fauci. His professional record is beyond reproach and his demeanor is positively angelic.

            But you are correct, it doesn't matter at this point. All we can do is hope.
