Also suggests EU states might eliminate the negative Covid-19 test for vaccinated travelers.
Member States should allow travel into the EU of those people who have received, at least 14 days before arrival, the last recommended dose of a vaccine having received marketing authorisation in the EU. Member States could also extend this to those vaccinated with a vaccine having completed the WHO emergency use listing process. In addition, if Member States decide to waive the requirements to present a negative PCR test and/or to undergo quarantine for vaccinated persons on their territory, they should also waive such requirements for vacccinated travellers from outside the EU.
“Here, on the basis of results from five questionnaire surveys, we find that PEV discontinuance in California occurs at a rate of 20% for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle owners and 18% for battery electric vehicle owners. We show that discontinuance is related to dissatisfaction with the convenience of charging, having other vehicles in the household that are less efficient, not having level 2 (240-volt) charging at home, having fewer household vehicles and not being male.”
Suppose daily new cases reach the low thousands in 2-3 months, and daily deaths nationwide have fallen to 100/day. Shouldn’t face mask requirements be dropped – especially for vaccinated people by then?
Rather than replace the errant batteries (apparently problem may only affect some vehicles or scenarios), GM dealers will install a new diagnostic system that monitors the battery pack and issues a warning to have it serviced, before it becomes a critical failure.
The software will monitor for potential battery problems and alert owners before they become an issue.
Per this video, it was due to incompetence. You’ll need to watch the video to understand – it’s pretty bad. Also sad – I’ve been in the Valiant Air Museum, which is the folks that were flying these planes. Sounds like serious organizational failures.
And the risk of dying in an airliner crash (which is very low) is probably higher than his dying of Covid-19, after being fully vaccinated, wearing a mask *and* a face shield (which he recommends).
Robert M. Wachter, chair of the department of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco and guest host of the podcast “In the Bubble,” says when passengers are allowed to take their masks off for meal services, his comfort with air travel goes away.
“When [planes] turn into a flying restaurant, the dynamics of spread become very different,” Wachter says. “I would not eat at an indoor restaurant at this point, even being fully vaccinated, and so the time during which the plane is, in fact, an indoor restaurant is a time when it is somewhat less safe.”
This doctor does not understand how aircraft ventilation systems work, pumping in new air, and sucking out old air, throughout the aircraft – not blowing air down the tube. The air is completely exchanged and run through high efficiency air filters every 2-4 minutes.
Instead, they recommend that even if fully vaccinated, you wear an N95 respirator at all times and wear a face shield with eye protection and disinfect everything in sight. Until there is ZERO RISK you must continue to engage in these theatrics.
Until everyone is wearing a full hazmat suit with external O2 supply, no one is safe. /satire
Hilarious – never, ever let a journalist be in a room, alone, with a number. (That’s actually a quote from a news editor!)
