IMHO the fact Israel got so many more vaccines than anybody else clearly Yad Hashem (and I'm not prone to saying that lightly) 

The graphs are omitting the fact Bahrain is using the Chinese vaccine.

Wonder how long it will take to get this into mainstream treatment.

New cases dropped below 100K (7 day average), and current hospitalizations are under 70k. Those are the best numbers in 3 months.

That's an immense (60%+?) drop for just over 1 month, no?

I'm no expert on pandemics, but it seems to be the norm from the peak of a wave.

I tried. Too addicting and too many enablers.

How big is the drop in Rt? The rest is simple exponential math, that we will never understand intuitively.

But have US behavior patterns changed all that much in a month? NIME.

35m vaccinated including large percentage of those at most risk, where most of the testing is

Are they at risk of getting COVID, or at risk of getting harmed by it? I think it's the latter in which case they should be less at risk of getting it (taking more precautions). We're talking 60% reduction, testing can't account for much of that.

Large proportion of testing is for survey in HCW and LTC facilities, a lot more of testing is people who want to know if they're infected before visiting older people.

It's not only about testing, a lot of seeding is from Covid+ patients in hospitals.

(Didn’t fact check)

Cool if it’s true, though if it is would probably make sense to take it sooner. What is activated vitamin D and what are the potential side effects of taking activated vitamin D?

Can we get some cross examination on the Israeli cure they report to have discovered?
The nasal spray one.
Is it being pear reviewed and brought to the worlds attention?
All I read was one Israeli article that said it cured all the people who took it- all of whom were seriously ill.
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible
