AFAIK, this movement is a melting pot for right-wing and left-wing nuts alike, as well as Reichsbürger, anti-vacchers, tinfoil hats, paranoid dope fiends and what have you. The crème de la crème, if you will.

It's more a right-wing topic and the right likes to fish for voters in these nutjob circles.

These sort of conspiracies theories (population control, secret world governments, thinly veiled antisemitic 'puppetmaster' type shit) definitely belong as much to the hardcore left as they do the hardcore right. The US right wing political establishment is definitely using it to fish for voters, but there was a bit of that with corbynism here in the UK.

It's less effective as a recruitment tool for the left because left wing people are (generally) less thick

I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel the tiniest bit of pride. It's quite rare for the Netherlands to have a strong 2nd half but covid has really made us pull together as a team and show what it means to be inconsiderate, hardheaded, dumb fucks.

I am truly sorry.

So I've read speculations that the mutations we're having now are much more transmittable, but also far less deadly. Let's hope it's true. No source, because I can't remember.

14-day case notification rate per 100 000 inhabitants for weeks 40-41 in Europe:
w40_41_COVID19_EU_EEA_UK_Subnational_14d

Timeline:
Now: Increase in cases. (Check:  ECDC & Statista & Sciensano)
±0 to ±1 weeks: Increase in hospital admissions.
±1 to ±2 weeks: Increase in ICU admissions.
±2 to ±3 weeks: Increase in excess mortality. (mostly among 65+ and/or with underlying conditions) (Check in ±5 weeks:  Statista & EuroMOMO)
Hospital admissions, ICU admissions, and deaths should be lower in percentages compared to the 1st wave, because there's more testing and better care now... That's my hope at least.
Also hope we can slow down the spread.

Excess mortality doesn't happen because of Covid

I saw a video on YouTube and dude seemed pretty convincing

I trust YouTube not science

it's so good they should just change the name to scienceTube

I think it's more of an authoritarian thing, and authoritarianism comes in many shapes..
