Is this accurate? Asking forum scientists

Covid-19 vaccine is 90-95% effective. Covid recovery rate 99%
So if I multiply 2 pears by 3 apples, I have?

I've said it before, for 99.99% of people they are better of catching covid than getting a vaccine.

Doctors say CDC should warn people the side effects from Covid vaccine shots won’t be ‘a walk in the park
Well. What about the c. 0.3% of people who will die (greater than 0.01%).

Also, there is no evidence that the protection offered by catching the virus is greater than that afforded by the vaccine.

Hysteria in Vaud, things are way more relaxed around here with the kuhs and the carrots. Redirect your inconformity to relevant cantonal authorities.
There’s been no hysteria here either despite the high number of hospitalisations.

Some people have a very weird concept of what hysteria actually is.

I think he meant the EFers who posted rising numbers, copy-posted info on missing ICU beds (Neuchatel), dissed Swiss federal government for not re-introducing stricter measures all over CH, cca 2 wks ago. Short memory seems to be one of the EF trademarks, too.

Phew. The invasion is over?

Honestly - even the added trash-cans around the restos here (turned into take aways) cannot take any more gastro tourists.

None of which could even remotely be classed as hysteria.

You wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to have a dig at me though would you?

Re: Coronavirus

Been an interesting thread so far.
Sweden which is probably the most socialistic country (excluding communist regimes) in the world is now the favourite of the alt-right.

12.734% of EFers claim masks and lockdowns are unnecessary and use the word hysteria in 64.329% of their posts.

I thought hysterical meant driving across two cantons for a restaurant meal in the quest for normalcy

That too. And insisting on closing all cantons down because 5 of them ran out of beds.

I am used to travelling across the country for books, but not for steaks. Maybe my priorities need improvement, in terms of survival. On the other hand, the invasion here feeds the economy, innit. If feds disagreed with me, they'd close everywhere and introduced real lockdowns. We are experiencing a soft version of everything that seems to work elsewhere. Swedish or Korean. I see a trend.

I also think that intercantonal gastro tourism is more tolerated in fed scenarios than people going to eat or shop in France.

Why do you keep posting statistics without sources? This one post has you lose all credibility in my eyes.

Actually I'd love to see someone trawl over the data and see the frequency of word usage in this thread. Science, expert, fake, immunity, herd, heard, lockdown etc. Stick it on a timeline to see when different buzzwords hit higher frequencies.

Have you got a source for this information from a credible expert on marton? Marton himself is not qualified I'm afraid.

If you will excuse me I've a bought of hysteria coming on and must retire to my fainting couch.

(I know he's joking, I'm finding it hard to take anything serious at this time of the day)

define "favourite" plz

usually, its good behavior to provide proofs for such claims, but probably, not for all

I think you meant "communist". I mean he meant "communist". I know English is not your mother tongue but as long as you have some tongue.
