    No restrictions!
    Victoria is considering now (light ones though - masks indoors). Now that everyone is vaccinated (if people wanted to) I wonder what excuse can be given for restrictions?

    NSW continues to break records, today recording almost 3 800 cases, while Victoria is still fairly steady on 1 500.

    Vaccines don't protect you as effectively against Omicron.

    Sprout is again reporting da Worse New Evers From da Red State Of Arizona.... Today is wed/dec/22/2021 n its being reported today that here in just da State of Arizona we have over 6,800 new cases of corona virus & Sadly 268+ Daily deaths which brings da death toll here in Arizona to well over 24,000+ & Climbing Fast.... Where is Governor Ducey Now :? Why hasn't da gov of Arizona Spoken on da Topic of Corona Virus out in public Since last April/2021 :?

    We Da People of Arizona Are Dropping Like Flys in da Area Hospitals right this moment n Yet the Governor of Arizona is Nowhere to be Seen ... Shame !!!! 3 days before da Holiday n every hospital in Arizona is at 95% capacity or Higher n we are now in Crises Care Mode once again.... We Have 268+ gone today which is da 9th highest daily death count so far..... Da Higher Ups are sending 140 national guard medical troops into 7 hospitals in Arizona starting jan 1 /2022 w a small stock pile of Vents ...... Not Enough to Stop This Plague No WAY !!!!

    Speaking of da Higher Ups... Why Hasn't Da Stupid anti viral/corona pills been released Yet :? ... why Do So Many Have To Die !!!! (over 800,000 in da states) WHY !!!! No Need For This ......... Like its plain n simple meh friends... Pop. control..(((Hush !!! Sprout, Don't Say Such Words))).. Alot of staff including alot of doctors at sprouts local hospital are starting to think this way. Back when da Ebola broke out in da congo in 2014 da only thing that finally stopped da plague from spreading outta da local area was when da anti viral pills came out that stopped da replication of dat type of corona virus inside of da sick n ill.. Which btw is da same drug that just got da merck approval for da fight against this corona virus. It Was only like 52% effective for da ebola back then and its only 32% effective against da delta or regular corona19 virus now, but HEYY it Kills it dead n stops da replication or da so called Viral Load Count from growing inside da sick n ill m8's unlike da vaccines which do not kill shiet or stop da spread of da plague. Capa Blanca is Correct that da Drug Manufacturer Phiezer has a better drug or Pill that is suppose to be 89% effective in stopping da replication of da virus including da new omicron variant & all other types of Corona Virus. Both Companys have Ramped up Production but Still Nobody in da New Media is Jumping on da Prez BAck for not Rushing these new Tools Thru...... Why is This ? Hmmmmmm

    We Need These 2 New Anti Viral/Corona Pills Now!!! Not a Month from Now plz, Sprout is Trying to Speak to da Higher Powers on this Earth ....PLZ HEAR MEH !!!! ....... Today it has been announced that da omicron strain has over taken da Delta Strain as being da dominate strain here in Arizona as well as da whole usa... Wow That Was fast for it showed up dec 5th here stateside n 17 days later its da Top Killa Strain in da States ... WE NEED DA PILLS NOW !! plz Stop Dragging Arse for Sprout is about to leave da whole medical profession n neva look back !!!!

    So both are going up, NSW extremely quickly but Victoria might be following them. Other states such as SA are also seeing quickly rising cases but from much lower bases.

    It's taken this long to get the FDA nod, it seems

    FDA authorizes Pfizer’s anti-covid pill as omicron surges

    Yes, Historic high numbers at SA as well. On another note, despite chess being a contact sport, so far no chess club (to my knowledge) has been identified as a virus hotspot - surprising yet a positive fact (if that is true cause I may be wrong).

    FDA = Frustrating Drug Advancement

    Yes. FDA's slow-walking has often cost thousands of lives. In this case:

    1. 1000 (say) Americans were dying of Rona every day.
    2. Paxlovid is 89% effective at prevengint death if given early.
    3. Therefore, every day the FDA dithered cost 890 lives.

    But the bureaucrats won't be held accountable for all teh lives cost by their delay.

    Vaccines are very effective at preventing both diseases and transmission

    Vaccines themselves don't kill anything, but they train the adaptive immune system to produce T-cells and antibodies that do kill the Rona virus. And even after antibodies wane (as they are meant to, otherwise blood would be as thick as molasses with all the antibodies produces against every antigen), memory B-cells last for decades, and will produce antibodies tuned to the attacking strain.

    Vaccination does prevent transmission. If you don't catch, you don't spread. If you get it less severely, you cough less so spread less. So “Your unvaccinated friend is roughly 20 times more likely to give you COVID”.

    Yes we are exploding in numbers, they reacon 70% omicron which means a fair few delta cases in the last few days as well. It seems the delta cases will be alot more servere and more likely to be in hospital.

    Interesting that Delta is also on the rise as Delta has in the past been under control in SA. And looks like you are right - it is indeed far more severe.
