Monday 23 August 2021 – Day 6 of a three day lockdown

I’m doing okay at home, with my eating. Despite being in lockdown for nearly a week, I have been managing okay, and only had one slip. I’m certainly doing way better than I would have been without OA.

The big news of today in COVID is that the Pfizer vaccine only lasts for four months with any sort of efficacy. That’s just great for New Zealand, as it’s taken us more than that to get a quarter of the population done with jab #1.

In other words, this is going to keep on for a loooong time. Don’t expect a return to normalcy any time soon.

So the question that needs to be asked by critical thinkers is: if the vaccine doesn’t stop the virus spreading (which it doesn’t) and only lasts four months anyway, what’s the point of bothering with it?

And why are governments pushing the vax so hard? Who is making money from all this – apart from the billionaires?

I’m already reading in the news that yet more small businesses won’t be able to survive this lockdown.

Anyway, enough of all that. OA is going well, and I’m looking forward to doing another online meeting sometime today. This time I’ll use my computer instead of my aging, dying phone though!
