"Nobody cares about Covid anymore"

    most were probably less than two years away from death anyway, lockdown was about extending the life of those aged eighty five to eighty eight

    Possibly, I'm just going with the official figures. I'm sure your stats from the pandemic are very different.

    I'm in Ireland I would assume people in certain jobs will be asked have they been vaccinated eg people who work in cafes or upmarket restaurants .I don't expect staff to ask the public ,have you been vaccinated? Would a dentist employ someone who is not vaxxed?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,036 ✭✭✭ RoTelly

    No, I don't think so. At this point you do not have to be vaccinated before starting a job or that an employer can ask if you are vaccinated or that an employer insists you be vaccinated.

    If the person is the best qualified then yes no matter if the are vaxxed or not you employ them.

    Should we ask our medical professionals if they have been vaxxed?

    I care about it ‘cause I just caught the fecking thing again. That’s twice in three months after thinking I was super immune, and being well vaccinated.

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,506 ✭✭✭✭ Mad_maxx

    What of it ?, my wife caught it November 21 and March 22 , I got it in March , it’s a dose which is harmless to the vast majority of people

    I don't wear masks anymore except if I go to the GP or the Hospital which is thankfully very rare.

    I see very few people wearing them. The odd person on public transport wears them but that is about it. I still sanitise my hands when I go to the shops and if they have no sanitiser I use my Dettol hand wipes.

    I think we need to just live with it.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    I was never bothered about covid.

    It was only the old and the sick who had any real risk of getting sick from covid.

  • Registered Users Posts: 90 ✭✭  Cup

    It’s a dose, and I caught it. So, I care about Covid.

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,232 ✭✭✭✭ Dohnjoe

    Millions died as a result of Covid. Those are the figures.

    If you have "other" figures, please share.

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,232 ✭✭✭✭ Dohnjoe

    It was actually higher than 80% at certain points, at one point in time, hospitals were stating up to 90% (and higher) of their ICU Covid patients were unvaccinated.

    As for the stats, proportionally more unvaccinated (representing less than 5% of adults) die than vaccinated (representing 95% of adults)

    The vaccines don't stop transmission or infection, they reduce it (depending on variant). They significantly reduce hospitalization/death from the disease (depending on variant).

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,232 ✭✭✭✭ Dohnjoe

    The measures used to get people to accept the vaccination were draconian and widely resented.

    First part of this sentence is conspiracy theory stuff and the second is untrue. Polls showed a majority of people supported the measures.

    In the US for example, around 100 people under the age of 50 were dying each day as a result of Covid.
