These reports of 90%+ efficacy in multiple vaccine candidates is really, really good news. First attempts at vaccines often have much lower rates than this. Can't we be happy that immensely positive progress is being made, instead of constantly pessimistic?

Sorry, as a european I am a bit pessimistic, as I see how we fuck up. I agree, you as an australian can be more optimistic.

Yeah that's fair. I'm actively trying to be more optimistic as a person these days, and for some time now, but it's true my situation makes it easier to be optimistic about COVID.

I guess I'm also trying to bring some hope for those who are struggling.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
