Austin only has 16 ICU beds available now. If you were thinking you didn’t need the vaccine because COVID was going away, please reconsider. Delta is kicking our asses.

I promise you, if any one who hasn't yet gotten the vax yet changes their mind, it's not going to be due to a FB post or any form of social media

You do realize that ICU beds typically always run between 95 and 100 utilized. Please stop spreading fear.

Ill folks are likely transported into Austin. I wonder about vaccination rates in the region. Also, young folks are much more affected by the delta variant than the original.

Buy the dip.

Staffed beds are not the same thing as actual beds. They need more nurses and docs.

Well FB consultants skew younger but for the younger crowd, I’d say (sadly) FB consultants are above average 😬

Ummm does no one understand numbers anymore? That graph is clearly on a downslope. I just hate when people say whatever and call it science facts. Still, delta is real if youve been on the fence about the vaccination. Cant count on herd immunity with an R of >6.0.

You can’t see it in the graph because it cuts off in May. If you get the original tweet, you can see the uptick in June / July

Delta kicking asses of those unvaccinated - so the rest of us who are responsible shouldn’t suffer. Get vaccinated or get covid so we can reach heard immunity one way or another. Also, delta not as deadly as the first COVID - it’s like getting the flu now. We should not destroy the economy again and mental health of millions Bc some unvaccinated people are getting sick with flu like symptoms. Totally over it.

Anyone have a prior infection and then feel worse after the vaccine? I did j&j 5 days ago as a “booster” (rode natural antibodies) and have been having weird mild chest pains and dizzy / light headed since then. I felt awful the day after the jab (worse than my worst day when I had covid) and figured once that went away I would be fine but the chest pain and dizziness hasn’t gone away.

Does anyone have any thoughts about a company terminating an employee within the HR team for testing positive for COVID 19 and further accusing the said employee of being the one that created the entire team to become infected by not answering the health screening questions accurately?

The company in question weeks prior wrote the employee up referencing sexual innuendo due to an accusation of a preferred name.
