There are a number of threads from the Old World, any news from the New? Anything American goes.

43 Percent of Nevadans
Are you talking fully of partially? Fully wouldn't be too bad.

I just got my second prick yesterday.

Here are the Belgian stats: https://covid-vaccinatie.be/nl

Germany's having a problem convincing enough people to actually go get the vaccine: https://graphics.reuters.com/world-coronavirus-tracker-and-maps/countries-and-territories/germany/

I just checked https://www.laatjevaccineren.be/vaccinatieteller-cijfers-per-gemeente and Antwerp's actually one of the lowest in Flanders at 59.49% fully vaccinated. That means the national 49,62% must be coming from Brussels/Wallonia.

The irony with mask wearing is that the infection rate would have been much lower if everyone who didn't wear masks wore them and everyone who did didn't. Those who don't wear masks are far more likely to be infected and infectious than those who do.

And while the vaccine doesn't fully protect against getting infected and passing that on, it is quite silly that the vaccinated ones are the ones to wear masks.

There is a Norwegian saying roughly like "Rise like a bear, fall like a fur coat".



The logistics of providing vaccines succeeded very well, the politics of breaking through wall of anti-vaxx propaganda less so.

This graph shows the increase in Covid cases in Nevada. While we're still way below the peaks of the dark, cold Covid winter, the cases are definitely on the rise.

The graph is screenshot of the dashboard located here.

Since this is the Americas thread, South America does stand out.
