excuse me mr eric-
i am just a kitten and not a tv nutritionist like you, so please excuse me if this is a question that everyone knows the answer to and i do not, but:
if vaccines work to stop covid infection and make death and hospitalization rates very close to zero, then why aren’t vaccinated people safe until all other people are vaccinated?
isn’t that a bit like saying that no people with umbrellas will stay dry until everyone gets an umbrella?
i’m only on chapter 2 of “statistics for yarn majors” but i think that maybe you cannot claim that “lineages are surging” based on their percentage of cases alone.
they might be flat or down and it’s just that the others are dropping or dropping faster like what happened with the b.1.1.7 you were so worried about in california.
this one had me a little confused at first too!
you can borrow my book if you’d like study up on it!
Reading the words, "...statistics for yarn majors" is worth the pain of experiencing Feigl-Ding's ineptitude! Classic!
Ding is such a despicable tool. He rants about keeping schools closed while his own are in private school in (Switzerland?)
Feigl-Ding has a use: exemplar use of gish gallop: numerous points all leading and easily refuted.
But to engage drags you down and he can beat you because he is an expert at gish gallop.
Not worth time to read much less point out the fallacies/weak inferences.

Another one for the record books...:)
