    This will happen sooner or later….. Airlines do not want to take the financial risk of transporting people that are not vaccinated.

    I don’t know where this is going, every day I feel that there is a deeper purpose to covid. Just me. Totally confused.

    Local News
    ORLANDO, Fla. – They’re called COVID-19 breakthrough cases — people who have been fully vaccinated yet still contract the virus more than 14 days after their second shot.
    The cases are popping up around the country, including in Central Florida.

    Here we go again, another example of someone missing the point of the topic—

    The article is not about whether vaccinated persons can still catch COVID-19 or not—

    Instead, it is about the WHO warning against the implementation of vaccine passports which could severely impede personal freedoms, human rights and result in widespread inequalities around the world .

    Like they say, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. In this case, you can’t teach an old dog how to think and comprehend basic language.

    It seems that some EU countries are using alleged slow vaccine supply by Oxford/AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria to hide their own inability to vaccinate their populations. Part of this is the claim that Oxford/AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria vaccine causes blood clots in certain age groups.

    It all started when the EU in Brussels were waffling about deciding on approval of the Pfizer vaccine. At that stage, the EU had come to an agreement with Oxford/AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria to supply Covid vaccine using “best reasonable efforts”.

    There is disagreement between the EU and Oxford/AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria as to what this phrase means. As Oxford/AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria vaccine is produced in the UK some EU politicians then started using the situation to have a go at the UK and ‘retaliate’ by threatening to withhold supplies of Pfizer vaccine (manufactured in Brussels) exported to the UK.

    The politicians then went a step further by saying that the Oxford/AstraZeneca/ Vaxzevria vaccine was not good because it caused blood clots. It was all smoke and mirrors to blind their own populations to their own inefficiency at making decisions in Brussels and in their own countries for the deployment of Covid vaccine.

    Israel, the UK and the USA (possibly others which I haven’t looked-up) are streets ahead of the EU in using the vaccine.

    I saw part of an interview with a senior EU politician who claimed that if Oxford/AstraZeneca/Vaxzevria had supplied vaccine the EU would have been much more advanced with deploying vaccine.

    The interviewer then mentioned that many EU countries already have millions of doses which they have not yet used.

    This threw a spanner in the works because the next question was about the ability of the EU to respond to the Covid emergency. …..
