    The Philippines have dropped the ban on flights from the ten countries banned. The bans were imposed to stop the delta variant but given 80% of cases here are now delta that horse has bolted.

    Restrictions in Manila are being eased and city/province wide lockdowns will now be replaced by targeted lockdowns of streets/estates.

    "Nurses have been working 16 hours a day, overworked, for 16 months. Their employer is saying to them, 'Thanks a lot. By the way, we're going to cut your wages.' And now they turn around and bring in people that they will pay $55 to $75 an hour," Harrigan said. "There's just no better way to show the public and the nurses that they have zero respect for health care."

    Is there any data on waning vaccine immunity from Israel etc that adjusts for age? As in most countries who started in the winter did the elderly first. I’m wondering if it might be linked to elders weaker immune responses and not just the time factor.

    I'm curious as to what the antibody threshold or sweet spot is for optimal protection? I had plenty 2 months ago when I left and that was 3 months after the 2nd shot...

    Found this from last month.

    Basically we don't know is the answer and T cells are important too.

    But I think all kids should be back at school. It really isn't fair that local school kids are doomed to half days. I know some can't eat in the classroom.. Can they not eat in the playground ????? If they are afraid of rain (which there isn't any), can't they erect marquees ?

    Israel is one of the first places to offer to vaccinate kids below 12 with severe medical conditions….

    Only a matter of time before it will be offered to children without medical conditions in Israel.

    There will be plenty of data from Pfizer at a later date.
