Final Word from Monday, August 9, 2021

Czech PM Andrej Babiš violated his cabinet's own covid restrictions on Sat. by hosting an outdoor event for more than 30 people and not wearing a respirator as he signed copies of his book. This demonstrates the duality of Babiš's covid policy. The rules are in some cases quite strict, but they aren't being enforced. The global trajectory of the delta variant suggests that this will soon change. Fully vaccinated people are now getting infected, prompting Israel and some other countries to require even arriving travelers with two shots to go into quarantine. At the same time, the World Health Organization is calling for a global moratorium on a third shot that might give greater protection against delta. If the WHO gets its way, and it usually does, boosters will be put on hold just as delta revs up in the CR. Fully vaccinated people like Babiš will start getting infected at book-signings, and his cabinet will react by requiring the vaccinated to get tested before engaging in certain activities.
