I got my first vaccine shot which is awesome! I get my next in early August and I am looking forward to full protection. The delta variant is rising fast in Portugal and they are going to need to lockdown soon so the hospital system survives. We are not looking forward to another lockdown, but it seems the best plan while they get everyone vaccinated. I still don’t understand why they don’t ban all get-togethers, indoor eating, and gyms while leaving the other parts of the economy alone (but I do not have the info they have and respect the hard-working people in those positions).
All of Europe is heading to a new delta wave it appears. I am especially worried about my family in Arkansas. They are vaccinated but the vast majority of people are not due to misinformation. And, the hospitals are already at 100% ICU capacity. A lot more people are going to die. And, the doctors and nurses are watching as people die who don’t need to.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, stay safe out there,
