Boeing, airline stocks tumble as new Covid variant spurs travel curbs

נשלח לפני
 
Boeing, airlines and other travel stocks tumbled on Friday after several European and Asian countries announced new travel restrictions from southern Africa because of a new Covid variant. European Union member nations on Friday agreed to suspend travel from the region, a day after the U.K. said it would temporarily suspend flights from South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

I thought this was a club of people that love flying. But what you read here has nothing to do with it. How stupid can people be from both sides if you read these comments....

"Hello. Example that we have to unite, in the fight for the pandemic, now the countries of southern Africa, we cannot abandon it, all airlines, collaborate to increase vaccination in these countries and thus our planet Earth regains its Beauty and that human beings can travel wherever they want. Let us join forces, people from the world of aviation in this battle against COVID. EVERYONE CAN. GREETINGS HELPER(?) ATTENTION."

You are wrong Eddie, the pandemic can and will continue but the cure is in herd immunity. You propose a concerted effort of the world to combat or fight this virus when the only thing that works is natural immunity not dirty face masks, arbitrary social distancing or billionaire enhancing vaccines. Flying with a mask on is similar to swimming in the no pissing side of the swimming pool.

Does anyone still believe this stuff is about health and not total control over populations? We'll be getting 'boosters' and wearing masks for the rest of our lives if we don't stand up to this stuff.

Right on MrTommy! The lefties have figured out that fear is the greatest motivator in people willingly giving up their freedom. Being told by a senile old fart in the White House to wear a mask, get vaccinated and hunker down in your cave is getting old.

Take off your F-----g masks, shake hands with people, join the 100,000 folks at a football game, do what ever the hell you did before this B---S--- began, and never again take the advice of a clown president or his clown health advisors.

have fun at that game! The fact that 100,000 unmasked Americans attend a football game or Indy race fully supports the very sad fact that the USA - the country with the HIGHEST GDP IN THE WORLD also ranks #1 in the world per 100,000 population that have or had COVID-19. Unless you are of the Fox ilk and believe this is all part of some mysterious cabal play to shift global power, or a space alien ploy, facts also indicate that the powerful USA has a 50% higher infection rate than even India whose GDP is 1/7th that of the USA. But apparently, facts do not matter to you and tribal behaviour is the only answer. If nothing else, sow a bit of dignity and think of others. Pause.

Good luck with your cavalier approach. Hope you as well as family and friends make it.
srobak
srobak 3
Because somehow you think a virus and a country's GDP are remotely related? OK.

Anyhow.... fresh numbers:

332,973,310 USPOP (census.gov)
48,100,000 of USPOP has been infected (cdc.gov). This is 14.4% of the population
777,000 have died (cdc.gov. Or 1.61% of USCOV infected are dead from it. 98.39% of infected survive.
0.23% of all USPOP dead from covid. 99.77% of USPOP survived covid.

That raised a question with me a few days ago. Looking at the numbers (from worldometer) India has half the deaths of US and 1 billion, give or take a few, more population than we.

It's the masks stupid! People are opting out of the air and onto the road to avoid the federal government forcing masks on their faces. Neither masks nor social distancing nor vaccine have done anything to curb the spread of a virus that is like all other viruses in the past. The virus needs to mutate and travel through the population and as it does it is weakened through the science of 'herd immunity' But no, Big Government wants to control the false narrative about the Wuhan flu. We have always had viruses and will always have them among us. As for the aeroplanes flying or not that is immaterial to me.

JFK Jr. died when he flew into bad weather. He was not instrument rated and he flew into the ocean because he was most likely disoriented. (No visible landmarks flying over the ocean at night with low clouds)

Flying may be immaterial to you but apparently so is common sense. Are you serious when you state "Neither masks nor social distancing nor vaccine have done anything to curb the spread of a virus"? Is this some grandiose scheme? My guess is that your cavalier approach would most likely be different if a family member was one of the > 802,000 USA C-19 deaths or 5,200,000 deaths worldwide.

Ron Streetenberger -4
I'm 87, had Covid. and had colds that were worse. Most of the deaths you mention were due to over smoking, over eating, or over counting. The big problem is letting people pump cramp into your upper arm to see what happens.

Every year influenza attacks the world and is spread through interactions with other people. In the past this has been accepted as a way of life until it was convenient to blame President Trump and have him defeated by a hysterical press. The press is still hysterical but for other reasons, ie, the 2022 elections they expect to disrupt and preserve the cancerous reign of the liberal mind dumb democrates.

Mother nature is patient. She makes the call based on man's ignorance. Good luck. Fear can bring out the worst in people. And yes the deniers see fear in their own eyes when they look at themselves in the mirror.

Covid will only go away after everyone has had it. With this new variant Omicron being so easily transmissible and luckily with very light symptoms, maybe this will happen surprisingly fast. Btw, Mark Levin pointed out that if you scramble the word Omicron, you get Moronic.

so since everyone has had the flu why hasn't that gone away?

Beware the enemy (in this case the pandemic) as it is within. BTW @ADXbear, the US has 4% of the world's population but 25% of its coronavirus cases. Pause. Last time I looked at a map of the solar system, the USA is not the center of it. Or does that not matter?

That is false information.
There are 265,000,000 cases worldwide and 5,240,000 deaths worldwide.
The US has had 48,100,000 of those cases (18.15%) and 777,000 of those deaths (14.82%)

332,973,310 USPOP (census.gov)
48,100,000 of USPOP has been infected (cdc.gov). This is 14.4% of the population
777,000 have died (cdc.gov). Or 1.61% of USCOV infected are dead from it. 98.39% of infected survive.

when that was tried in the beginning - the then president was called a racist and a bigot. Ironically by the same people who are trying to institute it now.
it was the quickest about-face in modern policy making. And then they eat their own words.
