These results from the Imperial-led REACT-1 study, a major coronavirus monitoring programme, are based on swab tests taken by almost 100,000 people in England between 24 June and 12 July.

[...]

The study’s analyses of PCR test results also suggest that fully vaccinated people may be less likely than unvaccinated people to pass the virus on to others, due to having a smaller viral load on average and therefore likely shedding less virus.

[...]

Based on these data, the researchers estimate that fully vaccinated people in this testing round had between around 50% to 60% reduced risk of infection, including asymptomatic infection, compared to unvaccinated people.

In addition, double vaccinated people were less likely than unvaccinated people to test positive after coming into contact with someone who had COVID-19 (3.84% vs 7.23%).

Professor Steven Riley, Professor of Infectious Disease Dynamics at Imperial, said: “The Delta variant is known to be highly infectious, and as a result we can see from our data and others’ that breakthrough infections are happening in fully vaccinated people. We need to better understand how infectious fully vaccinated people who become infected are, as this will help to better predict the situation in the coming months, and our findings are contributing to a more comprehensive picture of this."

Surely he could have shown Z as being the 26th letter and deriving the third 6 that way. If Pfizer were going for a satanic conspiracy angle they would surely want the 6's next to each other. What a dummy.

The local school board here just passed a mask mandate, defying our shitfuck Governor DeSantis. I was so worried about my nephew starting high school in this Florida clusterfuck.

Ron DeSantis’s desire to keep state open amid Delta surge draws criticism from local leaders to the White House

Florida governor Ron DeSantis earned a new moniker this week as the resurgent coronavirus continued to wreak havoc on his state: the “Pied Piper of Covid-19, leading everybody off a cliff”.

I’ve been running the numbers since this morning, and weirdly it does appear to check out.

I feel like DeSantis is just trying his damnedest to appeal to the Trump base across the country so that he can make a run for the R pres. nomination.

It's sickening that the way he is choosing to get attention for this, by so publicly defying reasonable COVID mitigation measures, is going to flat out kill people.

it really is some bizarro world variation of a negative feedback loop. it's like he's deliberately allowing his own voter base to get wiped out, which in turn will cost him votes. like in nature if the number of prey decrease, then predators will starve and their numbers will decrease.

every day there's a story about a covid denier, anti-vaxxer "it's all a hoax" person getting covid and dying. it's 'leopards ate my face' all day every day and could be its own thread.
