    That's my understanding as well. Time off for the shot or to recover from the side effects means maybe getting fired, maybe not making rent, and maybe being evicted. For some people that math works out to just hoping they don't get infected, and relying on others getting vaccinated to insulate them.

    Another round of stimulus check just might incentivize the lower income folks to get jabbed.

    I also wish government had made a deal with people to open up based on the % of folks vaccinated rather than just looking at confirmed cases…

    So now the much fantasised herd immunity transforms into economic immunity.

    Being white, I can’t completely answer this with any real amount of expertise. But from my understanding it’s a variety of things.

    • People of color are more likely to have service or blue collar jobs and aren’t allowed to take time off like white collar workers
    • Vaccine hesitancy due to how the United States government has abused black people through out history (see the Tuskegee Experiment
    • Systemic racism causing gaps in education and access to healthcare in general

    Michigan reopening plan was like that until the CDC knee capped it by just saying "everything's cool"

    Michigan officials are smarter than I thought!

    CDCs original ‘we don’t need masks’ guideline wasn’t based on science, now they’re in a hurry to go with science to unmask and open up. Wish they could be more serious about actual disease control.

    There's also no compelling evidence to believe it originated in nature too.

    Let's bring on evidences onto the table please... before we shut anything down
    Alright then, go on. Prove it. Show me your lack of evidence.

    That’s the same BS atheists like to do with theists. Prove it! You can’t? Cased closed. We’ve conclusively proven that there’s no God.

    Examine your own belief 1st. Why are you shutting down this possibility because an astrophysicist said so? All I’m asking is to keep an opened mind and not shut the door on something too prematurely. Even WHO is more opened to it. Why are you refusing to open your mind just a little? Not asking to change positions, just be a bit more open to it.

    I really do believe that astrophysicist is full of BS. Let Dr. Fauci or some virologist or infectious disease expert write something like that.

    For him, anything which is even remotely anti-CCP will be trumpeted like it's the second coming and God's Truth or whatever crap. Anything which is even remotely favourable to them, or which even dares to give them the benefit of the doubt, will be "WE NEED MORE INFORMATION BEFORE A CONCLUSION CAN BE REACHED BECAUSE WHO KNOWSSSSSSS".

    For you CCP is just awesome and deserve to be praised!

    Serious YW, there’s a real possibility that US is complicit with this lab leak accident. Farming out dangerous research that you yourself can’t do on your own soils is just wrong…

    I hope that’s not the case.
