  1. Obviously, they do not get paid by the car, if you have ever been in a line crossing where the line next to you passes 10 cars and you have not moved yet. I think they will just ask if you are fully vaccinated or not, and that is all for that. Everyone will pass.
  2. You really have a way with words, bmh !!! That is the funniest thing I have read in a while.
  3. People over 60 are no more likely to catch the virus than those under 60. The only difference is that IF they catch it, they have a greater chance of severe infection/death.
  4. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/coronavirus/covid-paints-mexico-red-again/ Lots of red states in Mexico !
  5. Yet another variant, this one originating in Brazil, dubbed P.1, has shown up in the U.S., specifically in Minnesota. The individual had recently traveled to Brazil. Scientists seem even more concerned about this variant than they were about the South African variant. A study in the journal Science estimated that 76% of the population of Manaus, Brazil had already been infected, which should bring it close to herd immunity. But there are concerns that the P.1 variant is able to dodge the human immune system, although there isn’t much evidence to support that yet. The Brazil variant “is probably the one causing the most concern among people watching this,” said William Hanage, an epidemiologist at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. “It is fair to say that P.1 is the object of very, very serious attention and concern among epidemiologists. We don’t know why it has been so successful in Manaus.”
  6. There’s good news and bad news on the vaccine front. The good news: Test results for Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) COVID-19 vaccine showed 72% effectiveness in the U.S., and Novavax (NVAX) said its vaccine was 90% effective in the U.K. While these are not up to the 95% standard of Pfizer’s (PFE) and Moderna’s (MRNA), they are still considered pretty good. Johnson & Johnson’s and Novavax’s vaccines won’t be available for distribution in the U.S. until April or later. The bad news: Scientists had suspected that the current vaccines are less effective against the South African virus variant, and now test results are showing how much less. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine was only 57% effective against it, and Novavax’s was only 49% effective. The World Health Organization has suggested that 50% is the minimum level needed to combat the pandemic. The South African variant has been found in two cases in South Carolina recently. Mutations like the South African variant are not unexpected, but it is likely that booster shots or new vaccine designs will be needed to combat them. This means continued monitoring of the virus for future mutations, and possible continued vaccination campaigns. Moderna has already announced that it is designing a booster shot to its vaccine.
  7. My wife is the oldest of 14, but 4 is the most any of her brothers and sisters have. One young niece has 4 already and her young sister has 3 already. Both just as poor as can be, but get that free milk. No education, just like both parents. Sad.
  8. Don't believe everything you read.
  9. I don't believe the AMLO Adm. has the money to buy much vaccine. That is why they are dragging their feet.
  10. Bubba, you aint got no horse, you are All Hat !!!
  11. Exactly what one would expect from people like you.
  12. When was it expected that the peak would be reached? September or October?
  13. Stats are about 98% positive that they will. If they take some precautions., even better.
  14. And, of course those who will die because they cannot work to feed and take care of health needs of their families. I believe they are called poor people. We seem to have lots here in Mexico.
  15. This one is a Civil Eng., builds the streets in housing developments.
  16. Brother-in-law takes. No idea what he does with it.
  17. I think it is the ones doing socialization. They are young and healthy and are not afraid of getting the virus. Their job is not to look out for us, that is solely our job. You can't blame others if you get it, although you can try.
  18. Or, do it yourself. I still enjoy doing those things myself, even at almost 80.
  19. I thought foreigners who became citizens got an INE, no? But father-in-law gets both ! Hummm!
  20. For what it is worth: wife tells me her father gets a monthly SS Pension and then every 2 months he gets more than 2600p extra. Don't have any details.
  21. JALISCO GOVERNOR SAYS MEXICO DOES NOT WANT THE EXTENT OF COVID-19 TO BE KNOWN https://www.solmexiconews.com/jalisco-governor-says-mexico-does-not-want-the-extent-of-covid-19-to-be-known/?fbclid=IwAR08lCyV3yL-pFd80udMiF4IepRpM5hj_N4XX70G6VfooZOYr3KuCAp7eqw
  22. One would think adults would understand, no matter what it is called. Just shows how many immature children are members here. Everything is a Lot more important than what a person refers to it by name. We all know it originated in Wuhan, China. THAT will NEVER change. Grow up, "politically correct" children; no one cares what you think since 2016, and that will continue into 2024.
  23. I love it how some here just MUST have the last word, forever !!! It must maintain their ego.
