    Covid 19 CRISIS

    :nod: in my book that's low considering it's leisure and business combined. For comparison, over here leisure alone already gets you almost 60% of the population traveling internationally, plus a nonzero number that only traveled internationally for business. On the topic at hand, if a...

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    The biggest risk I see remaining is taking schools back to normal before the summer holidays, ie full on-site classes without masks. 5-24yo have by far the highest infection rates remaining, and obviously the lowest vaccination rates. Spread within schools isn't helped much by high vaccination...

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    There will always be people testing positive despite being vaccinated, regardless of the variant and the vaccine.

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Compared to my pessimistic guess, no. Compared to the originally promised 10.xM doses in Q2 it is quite a change, in the "almost 10% of all adults" region. Now would be a perfect time for another surprise BnT drop of additional doses to cement their position as the only meaningful supplier.

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Well, 3.5M for all of Q2 in terms of deliveries, so we'll see significantly under 3M shots-in-arms within Q2... so maybe 1M less than my guess.

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Sounds like reality is at least as cautious here as I was, with JJ's vaccine cross-contamination issues it seems we're getting even less than what would be necessary to meet that 3.8M die roll :dunno: But, good news on the vaccine uptake front... it looks possible that Germany can hit 90%...

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    Oh no doubt, not requiring new vaccines would always be preferable. But, in the grand scheme of things, "a couple of months" is amazing.

    Kiel's government just confirmed that they are proceeding with third-ish scale Kiel Week plans for September, ie low seven figure people. https://www.ndr.de/nachrichten/schleswig-holstein/Kieler-Woche-2021-Mehr-als-eine-Million-Besucher-erwartet,kielerwoche3616.html While annoying, an updated...

    Ringmeet 2021 - I hope (August 12th-16th)

    You don't and won't need vaccination to travel, it'll either be "fine to travel with fresh negative test or proof of full vaccination" or "UK is full of VOC, no travel at all". PS: How do I know this? Any hard requirement to have vaccination with no alternative will lead to *massive* shouting...

    No, lower the roof such that you can see the upper traffic light through the now open area above the windshield. If you raise the roof it'll block your view with its black cloth.
