Data plan for waze and google maps only Hi - I would like to use a cheap android phone as a gps - I only need data for waze or google maps and occasionally to look at an email. Obviously I do not need 4g and throttled data should be fine. Was are the best options? Are there any cheap options with unlimited 3g (I assume that is enough)?

TY

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19? That is why I would not check there as it would be גניבת דעת if not worse - also I live in the midwest. I just wish the test was more available it would sure be helpfull to know if one is past it.

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19? One thing that is baffeling many is how in the same family only some got it even though they were all living together in the same house. Some speculate that there are people that are less susceptible to get it - even though I do not understand how this would be. Here is some info on this topic.

Individual variation in susceptibility or exposure to SARS-CoV-2 lowers the herd immunity threshold - https://medrxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.04.27.20081893v1

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
The fact that over 1700 people died in OH from Covid isn't good news, but that number was known before the article. IF "at least 1,247 patients of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities have died with coronavirus" that leaves "at most" 500 Covid deaths in OH - which has over 11 million people. They should do some heavy research in Florida (or just do the opposite of whatever NY was doing) put some focus into stopping the spread in nursing homes.
The original reason I thought this belonged in the good news thread is that we are acting (and will continue to take precautions) as we are living in a Magaifa. If the death rate outside of nursing homes is .005% including assumed Covid deaths then to me it fits in the good news section.
Agreed - Also add the numbers in OH from prisons and b"h we are left with very little.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Interesting, what are the limits?
Anything open on my side of town indoors? And why the chasm?
ZC has been open since Shavous with a limit of 30 in the auditorium and 30 in the Gym which is 10% capacity.
ZAZ is also open with similar limits on capacity.
YIGC is in a tent near the Shul and so is KBT
Bais Avrohom is inside with capacity limits.

Re: Corona virus and your shul
Can anyone please explain why it would be so hard to put in a mask when davening indoors?
I guess it depends on each person, I know many who are planning on staying in an outside minyan that allows after proper social distancing one does not have to wear a mask at their place, then to come inside until it safe to w/o a mask.
Personally I find it difficult to wear one properly more than 15 minutes.

In the not good news category:

The political interference into this pandemic is unconscionable. It started with hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine which still today we do not know the truth about.

Re: COVID-19 Reinfection
It does seem that it is rare now and hopefully it will stay that way, but this matches the pattern of other coronaviruses from which the immunity would begin wearing off right around now for the earliest of the cases. In addition to that, to count scientifically they must have actually had a positive test. Where things go from here remains to be seen. Like all else with this virus we should hope for the best but keep our eyes open.
True, however the fact that we are not hearing about mass reinfections in Italy will hopefully buy USA enough time till there is a vaccine.

Re: Lakewood cases There is no doubt that certain measures that minimally impact quality of life should be started now. Stop the הפקרות by weddings - we know that most cases are traced back to them.

Re: Lakewood cases
The problem is some here will jump to "everyone should wear masks" while claiming there is minimal impact on quality of life and the conversation comes to an abrupt end.

They already have....
However the other steps outlined bove should be followed. Anecdotally there are many more cases in Lakewood amoung Bochurim that are going untested - the time to act is now.

Re: Lakewood cases Bottom line is we should if there is common ground on stoping the הפקרות by weddings it should be done now - we can leave masks for another day.

Re: Realistic vaccine date- end of 2021? It seems to me that everyone should follow Israel and try to mass vaccinate - we should try our best that those who need them should get them first but if a few skip the line but we get many more vaccinated it is worth it.

Re: Realistic vaccine date- end of 2021?
I disagree, I'd rather see high risk people vaccinated first even if it's 2 weeks after low risk people would otherwise get vaccinated. That being said, the priorities of most states are completely backwards.
also add that there is a school of thought that vaccinating the younger people who spread the virus is more beneficial.

Re: Realistic vaccine date- end of 2021?
Can never waste an opportunity to take a shot a Trump huh, if they made it first come first serve youd be screaming that Trump is a murderer. You make fair points but the invocation of trump at every turn is quite ridiculous
Never hurts to push his buttons - If Trump feels his legacy is on the line he will do what it takes to get things moving. The situation is so disappointing given that there was time to prepare even though the vaccine provides logistical challenges.

Re: Realistic vaccine date- end of 2021?
This. It's not the actual injection that's delayed, it's getting the vaccines to the locations they're being administered. If a nursing home is scheduled to receive the vaccine, it really doesn't make a difference if it's administered on Saturday or they wait another 2 days until Monday.
Why not you are delaying them being immune for another 2 days where is the sense of urgency?

Re: Realistic vaccine date- end of 2021?
It might have been a good idea to pay the vaccine developers/big pharma per dose for getting them injected, with a bonus for getting each one they get done before a certain date.

And/or if the federal government would pay for vaccine production when stage III clinical trials started. Wed have tens of millions more doses on hand upon EUA.
Could not agree with more - If someone had an incentive things get moving, that is why the private sector always does a better job. In Israel either they care more about the people or Bibi feels it will get him re elected either way they are getting it done.

Re: Realistic vaccine date- end of 2021?
Why are so many people catching covid from the vaccines, if these are MRNA vaccines not containing live or even dead virus, from which is was said to be (and in theory should be) impossible to contract covid from?

I haven't seen anything good online explaining this phenomenon.

(The numbers submitted to the FDA proving the efficacy of the vaccine seem to be hogwash. Well over 1 in 10,000 people seem to be contracting covid from the vaccination.)

Where did you see people are catching Covid from the vaccine? What is happening is that you do not develop antibodies until 14+ days from first dose, and you are not completely protected until a week after the second dose. Hence people who took the first dose can still catch from someone else. It seems from data from Israel that one dose is less protective than they claimed but after 2 doses it is working well.
