    Thats absolutely nuts. Sympathies to all her family, but I simply cannot fathom how anyone can refuse medical intervention if it means staying alive. A horrible time for all her family I would imagine.

    Here in lies the problem, your wife's cousin didn't form this opinion by herself, she picked it up from all these scumbags that prey on people spreading their misinformation who are literally costing other people's lives. My own cousins are anti vaccine, they've been glued to whatever fu*ker in the states releases some fictitious claims about vaccines murdering kittens or whatever their latest nonsense is.

    Couple of family are same. But have changed since she is on deaths door. (signed up for vax since)
    Ultimately Facebook has alot to answer for allowing for these clowns to be brain washed.
    Blank refusing treatment is crazy.
    The husband and kids I feel for.

    Sorry to hear that man. But just wondering, seriously, how does she tally thinking it is a hoax with the fact that she is in ICU with a possibility of dying, I don't understand that.

    Brexit Turkeys voting for Christmas pales in comparison to what's happened here. Terrible and tragic situation that woman has put herself and family in.

    69% of those admitted to Hospital were unvaccinated between April 1st and October 2nd.

    Still between 40-50k people over age of 40 have chosen not to take it. If they haven’t taken it by now, fair chance they are choosing no to which is their right. If 10% of those get it bad though over the winter, that’s 4k potentially needing hospital treatment. Also would need to factor in those who are vaccinated and the virus does affect them. Wonder will this have an impact on the full reopening on 22nd

    The 69% doesn't really even tell the full story until you consider that that 2/3rd's comes from less than 10% of the population, it beggars belief that anyone is still anti vaccine and I can have sympathy for someone who has been conned into not taking this vaccine, they've been manipulated but there's a special place in hell for those that have taken it upon themselves to actively try and stop others from taking this vaccine.

    Yeah, I don't get the mindset of people who know stuff is false but out of sheer cnutery they peddle misinformation which leads to people dying. As to the people who are duped but maintain their position to "save face" even in the face of overwhelming evidence, I don't have ill-will for them but I have to be honest and say I have very little sympathy. The willfully ignorant will end up with the consequences of their actions if they won't listen to facts and common sense.

    i could be way off the mark but maybe most/all of those 40/50k unvaccinated already tested positive before vaccines were available.

    itll be interesting to see if he allows his players to take to the court in an away game against a team with an unvaccinated player.

    Im sure he will because Irving is not being frozen out on health grounds. It's state laws that prevent him playing in certain games, he's being frozen out because those laws make him a part time member of the team, and the coach says allowing him to be a part time member would undermine the teams ethos.

    Up to each individual team I suppose but would not being able to play in New York or San Francisco make a player part time if his team aren't based in either of those places?

    I don't think so.Reading between the lines it looks like he's been bombed out because the general manager feels like he's put his own interests ahead of the teams.

    "It is imperative that we continue to build chemistry as a team and remain true to our long-established values of togetherness and sacrifice.

    "Our championship goals for the season have not changed, and to achieve these goals each member of our organization must pull in the same direction. We are excited for the start of the season and look forward to a successful campaign that will make the borough of Brooklyn proud."

    67% of those in ICU currently are unvaccinated. Considering only 8% of the adult population are unvaccinated that ICU stat is stark.
