    Stayed at home for 7 weeks, deliveries got prioritised for people with medical conditions or exclusive opening hours for people in high risk groups.

    Helplines available for whoever needed it.

    Volunteers delivering them ngs as well, ask for help on social media.

    Government from need foodbanks.

    Usual charities stepping up.

    Pharmacies open, social distancing only one in shop at any times.

    Yes, the tests continue for it to be approved for other age groups. Except for kids IIRC.

    Have a friend with a first dose vaccine appointment scheduled. (Pfizer/BioNTech.) I feel like my covid-related prognostications have mostly been on point, but was not expecting vaccine availability on this kind of timeline.

    Pfizer has millions of doses sitting in its warehouse waiting to ship. The trump administration hasn't/won't tell it where to ship the vaccines. At the same time the Trump administration has said it is cutting next week's deliveries to over half the states by 30-40%.

    Well, in its typical incompetence the Argentine competence is panicking yet again, and its best statement has been ‘we need a plan B!’. (Possibly with more exclamation marks)

    I man, this is the government that has just said ‘with the current Supreme Court we're going to be all in jail so we need to pack it [preferably with our personal attorneys]’ so the standards are already *low*.

    The Trump admin approach to vaccines generally has made little sense. Why would you essentially bet everything on vaccines, and then not actually commit to them?

    Trump administration officials passed when Pfizer offered months ago to sell the U.S. more vaccine doses.

    "Trump administration officials passed when Pfizer offered in late summer to sell the U.S. government additional doses of its Covid-19 vaccine, according to people familiar with the matter. Now Pfizer may not be able provide more of its vaccine to the United States until next June because of its commitments to other countries, they said."

    They could have consciously included Putin-aged people in the tests, then have data, non?

    Hopefully some of the vaccines will do work, though it remains to be seen if and how much.

    Most of the world is ruled by assassins on a scale not seen since World War 1.
    They have the means to stop the millions of deaths that are happening but refuse to do so because it might damage some economic interests. And those interests are untouchable, therefore a lie that "we can't stop a couple of months" is simply shoved upon the public. Who falls for it!

    No effort is being made in Europe or in the US, very wealth areas well capable of clearing out the virus, to resolve this problem. What is being pursued is a policy of "herd immunity" without admitting so.

    Putin was asked by a journalist on press-conference, why he didn't take vaccine yet. Answered that he is outside of recommended age group and simply following the rules.
    "Not safe" is a trigger word, it would be too stupid for him to use it.

    Not enough data doesn't mean they were excluded. It means too few people of this age volunteered so far.
