  1. Scientists gave Russia's Sputnik V vaccine the green light on Tuesday February 2 saying it was almost 92% effective in fighting COVID-19 based on peer-reviewed late-stage trial results published in The Lancet international medical journal. The results, collated by the Gamaleya Institute in Moscow that developed and tested the vaccine, were in line with efficacy data reported at earlier stages of the trial, which has been running in Moscow since September. "The development of the Sputnik V vaccine has been criticised for unseemly haste, corner cutting, and an absence of transparency,"
  2. Laredo bridge 2 has not had a Sentri lane for a long time. May 30 2018 was the last day. Sentri is only available on bridge 1 and Columbia in the Laredo area. Exactly where do you pay on Bridge 1 other than the normal bridge toll? All lanes are Sentri only on bridge 1.
  3. It's been open for entry to the US for some time. It remains closed for entry into Mexico Right now 8:20am is 0 minutes Pictures in last 5 minutes

  6. It is celebrated on the Monday before. The next Monday holiday is 15 of March Benito Juarez
  7. It will depend on your port of entry. In Laredo when bridge 1 is open it is only for sentri and could save a lot of time depending on the time of day you would cross. Checking today at 1:50 bridge 1 is under 10 minutes with Sentri brige 2 is 15 minutes general lanes. If you cross at Columbia it might save you 5 minutes 90% of the time. The total cost the last time I checked was about $220 per person. Each person in the vehicle must have the pass. It is good for 5 years. Also you will need to go to a physical appointment for an interview and fingerprinting.
  8. Please ignore me. It makes a lot of sense for you. Que tiene un buen dia P.S. Google is a search engine that I don't use very often

  10. The first article of Mexico's 1917 constitution prohibits "all discrimination motivated by ethnic or national origin, gender, age, disabilities, social condition, health conditions, religion, opinions, preferences, marital status or anything else that threatens human dignity or degrades the rights and liberties of people." Mexico's Law to Prohibit and Eliminate Discrimination also outlaws age-based hiring practices but does not specify a punishment. Now the reality. Employers specify age and sex in hiring. There are discounts provided based on age by government agencies IE; p
  11. Rules have been changing between you can extend and you can't extend since last some time in the middle of last year. If you are in this situation you should contact one of the experts nearest to you with current knowledge regarding car permits. There ae a couple who post here regularly.
  12. Wow what an illogical statement. To think that someone who came from a different place would be more dangerous than say a Walmart cashier who lives in a house in Chapala with multiple family members, and reuses disposable masks or uses non-disposable masks without proper cleaning between uses. The science has shown in many studies that wearing a KN95 mask (properly), using gel, hand washing, and avoiding prolonged exposure prevents transmission to those using the same regimen. So while you may emotionally think "jaunts to the store" don't count They do.
  13. Actually phase 3 trials are carried out in many different countries for each vaccine candidate. The studies are done by independent trial researchers and reported to the companies as well as reported to the WHO, CDC, and other interested organizations. So while China could lie about trials carried out in China, it would be extremely difficult to censor trial information from other countries. Thus you are seeing results reported in Brazil on one Chinese vaccine with poor results.

  15. You. You think that people from somewhere else don't.
  16. And I have observed Canadians fleeing Covid infested provinces that did not self quarantine...
  17. No it's a Broad Billed Male hummingbird on approach for landing Then about to land at the restaurant
  18. Not the reason????... if you were in a restaurant you could have been exposed.... If you were in Walmart you could have been exposed... If you visited with friends you could have been exposed. So it is a valid question. Do I? No Why? Because I wear a KN95 mask properly, use gel, wash my hands, and social distance. So the odds I have it are extremely small. If I drove to Ajijic from my house in Texas where I had been taking normal precautions am I any more likely to have covid than someone in Ajijic who used their ATM, went to Walmart, and then a restaurant??
  19. Wonder how many self quarantine after eating out or going to Walmart?
  20. Based on public information a PCR test requires 5-6 hours in a laboratory that has all the equipment necessary. Once at the lab, the specimen is processed, which means lab workers extract the virus’s RNA, the molecule that helps regulate genes. “That step of cleaning, the RNA extraction step, is one limiting factor,” said Cathie Klapperich, vice chair of the department of biomedical engineering at Boston University. “Only the very biggest labs have automated ways of extracting RNA from a sample and doing it quickly.” After the RNA is extracted, technicians also must carefully m
  21. Yes Costo will follow all the regulations as do the vast majority of stores in GDL. They do not want to risk being shut down by the inspectors. We're fortunate here at lakeside.
  22. Luckily at lakeside the stores are a bit lax when it comes to following government rules. For my family in GDL it has been a hardship. There in inspectors in GDL that routinely close restaurants and stores for violations. So, like most seniors in GDL, my family members rely on their children to shop for them.
  23. Guadalajara airport info page. The laboratory is located on the second level of the parking lot and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The cost of the tests is $ 1,450 for PCR tests and $ 450 for rapid antigen tests. In order to have enough time to obtain the result of their test, passengers are requested to arrive at least 4 hours before the departure of their flight. http://www.aeropuertoguadalajara.com/
  24. Second information says no. First hand information said they were able to enter.
