  1. Ok sorry it must have gone up 3 since last I checked. So we are now currently at 51 deaths after a year and a half of rapid spreading.
  2. I personally know 0 people NOB who have either gotten sick or who have died. Down here in México I know zero people who have died from the virus. I read that Chapala has registered only 48 deaths within the Chapala Municipality. I speak fluent Spanish ask people of all ages who are these 48 people who have died. I speak to people daily on the malecón, in the plaza, or in the tienditas. I am yet to find anybody that knows any of them personally. Except for a lady who says her elderly neighbor died from a heart attack but supposedly had tested positive prior to the heart attack. I find it very interesting that in a small gossip filled Mexican pueblo like Chapala most people I talk to do not know these 48 dead and most doubt they truly died from Covid. If people were really dropping dead from Covid here, everybody in town would know about it and it would be the talk of the town. But fortunately I don't see that to be the case here in Chapala.
  3. Mudgirl, that is amazing you were able to do that yourself. For me, Seriously, I would have no idea where to begin. But I can tell a repairman in fluent rapid Spanish what I need done. We all have our different talents.
  4. If I am not mistaken, I think that Sinovac has been going mostly to the poor and also developing countries like México, Turkey, and Brazil to name a few. Most of these countries are just happy to get a vaccine, any vaccine for their people. Only time will tell how effective it turns out to be in the long run or what side effects it may have. I just prefer to not be a guinea pig. If only 48 people have died in the municipality of Chapala in the last year in a half since the virus has come out. I take that as a very small chance of actually dying from it. I'm seriously more worried about crossing Avenue Madero then dying from Covid. I will gladly prefer someone who is sickly and very elderly to get in line for the vaccine if they feel they must. I'll just sit on the sidelines and watch how all this plays out.
  5. MtnMama, you are absolutely correct. I should have posted more information about him. Its just that his name pops up so frequently on this forum I figured most people had heard of him or could at least do a forum search. He is many people's preferred home appliance repair guy. He is considered by many to be very honest and the best guy to go to get fridges and washing machines and such things fixed. In the past 10 years we have had two dishwashers go out on us, or I should say their computer board. Once the computer board goes out, its almost impossible to get that repaired down here. So we finally gave up on the modern dish washers and asked Gualberto if he knew where to get an older, straight up mechanical dish washer, and he found us one two days later. It works great and have had zero problems with it. We figured that with the older mechanical ones, if they break down, they can usually be repaired fairly easily. Well here is his phone number for anybody who is interested in Gualberto. 33110265450
  6. If they are finding all kinds of serious problems with the various Covid vaccines in the USA and Europe, only God knows what problems the Sinovac may potentially prove to have down the road. Take at your own risk I say.
  7. If you know the names, many seeds can be ordered from Mercado Libre.
  8. Firestick possibly?? Thunderstick according to google is a massage device.
  9. Contact Gualberto, he would probably like to recycle it.
  10. It rained fairly hard for about 15 minutes in Chapala Centro.
  11. Actually I later reread my original post and realized it made no sense so I later edited it. Sorry for the confusion. Its hard to type on these small phones sometimes.
  12. Yeah so many people believe that if you DO Not surrender yourself over to be jabbed by this understudied and undertested new type of vaccine then you must be an anti-vaxxer but that is so not true.
  13. They are easily found along the avenida and malecón here in Chapala.
  14. I'm sure when information about the next vaccination campaign comes out, someone will post it here on this forum. I also abhor Facebook.
  15. Mudgirl, I did get the jist of the under counting of the covid deaths in Florida and I also got the jist of the last paragraph. And I have seen it repeated in many liberal news articles over the past few months. They just are so surprised that when there are lockdowns and mandates and where there are none, the death toll remains closely the same. And they are so determined to believe that lockdowns and face masks make all the difference when the numbers say otherwise.
  16. Bisbee Gal, that was an interesting article you posted. I think the last sentence pretty much answered my question though. So, according to Bisbee Gal's article it is now a fact that the states that kept up with the strict lock downs and mandated face mask wearing did not fair any better than the states that opened up fully and did away with face mask mandates.
  17. But it would still be interesting to know the truth about infection rates in states that wear masks vs those that do not. I have also read articles on yahoo that reluctantly admit that the infection rates in Florida are not any higher than in states with serious mask mandates.
  18. Regardless if you like the source or not for this article it still would be interesting to know the truth. Is there any real difference in the infection rate in states that have strong face mask mandates and that remain closed vs those that do not and have completely opened up? Could it be that wearing unsteralized face masks that you keep in your back pocket or hang in your car is more dangerous than going maskless?
  19. Isn't a vaccinated person recommended to continue wearing masks and practice distancing for awhile after the vaccine since they could still pass it on to some one else? Maybe, they just say that to keep them out of cantinas and bars for awhile. Quién sabe?
  20. Serious enough for over 12 countries to suspend vaccinating their citizens with it.
  21. The scary part is if the Europeans put out the AstraZeneca vaccine and they have already administered it to millions and they are just finding out it has serious deadly side effects, so deadly that over 12 countries just this week have already refused to give it to their citizens. Imagine what the Sinovac may contain, created by an authoritarian regime that is notorious for not putting the well being of their own citizens in very high regard. It was rushed to be released and it has been way under tested and studied. If the European vaccine has been proven to be so dangerous just imagine what we may find out about the Sinovac after millions of Mexicans have already taken it.
  22. Oregontochapala, you don't like my opinion, seriously? Thats one of the things I like about this board is that anybody can come on and freely express their opinion unlike the other board that only allows mainstream opinions. If you think my post was full of missinformation and lies please point it out. I'm also not a fan of conspiracy theories or right wing fascists to tell you the truth but I do have my opinions. One is that something about this whole virus and the worlds leader's reaction to it stink. But it is NOT my opinion that over 12 countries have now suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/3/15/which-countries-have-halted-use-of-astrazenecas-covid-vaccine It is not my opinion that blood clots are a deadly side effect. It is not my opinion that the virus has been and been spreading since Nov. 2019 or possibly earlier. It is not my opinion that this is a highly populated area living in a very concentratedly small area in a very small stretch of land. And it is not my opinion that with our large population we have fortunately only lost around 60 people. All those are facts. If the truth were known, the municipality of Chapala probably has close 100 thousand people living here now. Hundreds of families have flocked to our area from the larger cities like Gdl and MC since the pandemic began. I guess the only part of my post that was opinionated was whether or not 60 or so people dead out of close to 100 thousand in nearly a year and half of a deadly virus outbreak equated to a pandemic for our area. Maybe, you should reread my previous post.
  23. Let me just say, go ahead get in line folks. I just hope there are less side effects than the AstraZeneca vaccine. All across Europe they are putting a stop to vaccinating people with this European developed vaccine due to deadly side effects. Maybe, all you guys have greater trust in Chinese scientists than I do. If we believe that the virus has been out at least since Nov of 2019, or possibly earlier. That just means the virus has been rapidly spreading everywhere for the past 16 months and with our large highly concentrated population that refuses to abide by restrictions, we have only around 60 dead from Covid. That is not a pandemic guys, possibly in some areas, yes but not here. And if this pseudo pandemic refuses to become a true pandemic (locally speaking) after nearly a year and a half, than hell, I am not too worried about it. And no I am not an anti vaxxer I just hate needles.
  24. To be honest guys, this is a 3 day weekend and 4 day weekend for many since lots of schools did a teacher's work day on Friday. All because some dude named Bénito Júarez just happened to be born on Monday. That should explain why traffic is really bad this weekend.
