Right. So now it's the "muh freedom" people that are causing everyone to lose their freedom to go to places without wearing a mask.

Fantastic.

Anyone here living in Canada? It sounds like they may possibly be the first country to achieve herd immunity again the COVID-19 virus

I'm Canadian. What's your source for this?

Also should we be posting in a new thread? A lot of useful information and discourse has been shared in this thread and it would be a real waste to lose all of that because of one person's hissy fit.

There is still some chance that the number of new COVID cases per day in the UK will not hit a new all time high before the grand reopening on July 19th

the canadian economy seems like it's being held together by ducttape & balsa wood at this point; it'd be pretty bad if they did another lockdown.

my understanding is that it might be more psychological than anything else - apparently companies here are having trouble hiring. it's like people have just lost interest in working. maybe part of it is that it's pretty much impossible to buy a home anymore? after a decade of historically low prospects, millenials might be saying no more, Butchie, no more of this

While this is great news I'm hesitant to equate it with "herd immunity" unless maybe I'm misunderstanding that concept.  I'm still wary of how long the vaccine will last and the inevitability of vaccine-resistant variants, especially with all this pressure to reopen the CAN/US border. I'm about as optimistic as I can be tho 🙂

Well yes but compare to hospitalisations and deaths (i.e. see how the curves in the graphs below for the last wave in January were all in sync but this time they are not.)

Cases way up, hospital very slightly up (but less critical patients and shorter stays in hospital), deaths remain low.

That said, it does feel like a big leap into the unknown. Things looked much better about a month ago.

Been in central london for a few days now visiting a mate and it's been packed the whole time I've been here. 19th July is adding salt to the wound imo.

      A lot of monthly electronic nights and special events that were coming up are now streaming rather than occurring in a live social setting. There are too many events make a dedicated topic for each one, so let's post them here and WATMM's can tune in as they happen.
      So I'll start. Vic Acid is a monthly braindance series in Victoria B.C, Canada organised by Hrdvsion. Tonight's edition is streaming now (in light of the social distancing directive) for the next few hours. Tune in here:

      So As these occur to you all just keep posting them so we can tune in during our evening Internet browsings!

      Languishing is not merely in our heads — it’s in our circumstances. You can’t heal a sick culture with personal bandages. We still live in a world that normalizes physical health challenges but stigmatizes mental health challenges. As we head into a new post-pandemic reality, it’s time to rethink our understanding of mental health and well-being. “Not depressed” doesn’t mean you’re not struggling. “Not burned out” doesn’t mean you’re fired up. By acknowledging that so many of us are languishing, we can start giving voice to quiet despair and lighting a path out of the void.

      Thomas Dolby's kids (god I feel old) created a parody song based on his 1982 song, "Europa and the Pirate Twins":
      Here's the video for the original song:
