  1. My concern is how quickly different variants are taking hold. The future is still uncertain.
  2. I’ve booked that cruise for October 2022 and I’m even worried that won’t go ahead.
  3. I wasn’t being flippant. I have had experience of suicide close to me and so take seriously any hint someone is in trouble or even slightly contemplating such a step. Anyway I’m glad you are well. BTW, I live in Australia so my life is more “normal” than in most other countries. We are very lucky.
  4. If you are indeed contemplating suicide I implore you to get professional help.
  5. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/24418-cdc-cruise-rules-may-be-just-days-away-volunteer-sailings-next.html Interesting reading.
  6. Thank you Hank. I've been saying for months that the emphasis on a vaccine is misplaced. We should be focusing on getting treatments that will cure or at least minimise the effects. Covid is with us for some time.
  7. Maybe UCSF is run by a Brooklynite who is waiting for demand to drop so they don’t have to pay retail. 😉
  8. Giving up on vacations just because you have to do a Covid test? Seems a bit of an over-reaction.
  9. There’s a few flaws in your argument but it would be boring to address them. I’ll just mention the one in your first sentence. Establishing herd immunity doesn’t stop the virus spreading. It’s still around and is spread but we are immune so it doesn’t impact us. Immunity doesn’t wipe out the virus.
  10. I’m not sure I understand what you’re saying here. Could you please explain.
  11. 20 million shots by the end of the year was never a realistic goal.
  12. Isn’t there a good summation of all the cabins on R Class ships somewhere on the Azamara board? If so, does anyone have the link? That would help the OP.
  13. I just said it was possible, not that it was my point of view. And nothing in those quotes indicates that it’s not possible.
  14. Of course there’s always the possibility you’re interpreting “endemic” differently to how the paper’s authors intended. They may have indeed meant it would end up confined to certain geographic areas such as those not taking sufficient steps to contain it. Just a thought.
