I was busy on 28 April, sorry. I’m also getting bored with articles/papers which say: OMG look at how well vaccines work! People in a group known to have poor immune responses to vaccines have poor response to just one dose of COVID vax, and should be prioritized for second doses! Here’s yet another vaccine… Continue reading 2021-04-28/9 General

Today’s post is going to be ultra-short because I was busy getting ready to put my primary laptop into the shop *sob* to get the R key on my keyboard fixed *yay*.

Press Briefing IMHO, this was the least interesting press briefing that we’ve had. Dr.H gave provisional stats, then didn’t really say much aside from telling people that things sucked in hospitals now and exhorting people to Do The Things: stay away from people, mask up, don’t travel, register to get vaccinated, etc. Surgeries postponed Dix… Continue reading 2021-04-22 BC
