1,800 Disease Medical experts have a conference.  Only 30% wore masks and about 10% of the total got Covid!   oops

CDC conference cursed by Covid outbreak, 181 infected

Of the approximately 1,800 people who attended the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Conference in Atlanta, Georgia in late April, 181 reported that they became infected with Covid. While most of the attendees, who are disease detectives, say that they had been vaccinated, only 30% wore a mask.

From The Washington Post:

The CDC's Epidemic Intelligence Service officers and alumni — the disease detectives deployed to identify and fight outbreaks — met April 24-27 at an Atlanta hotel. The conference drew 1,800 in-person attendees, the first in-person Epidemic Intelligence Service gathering in four years. Like many conferences, it was crowded, with much face-to-face contact, many events held in small rooms and lots of socializing, according to attendees. About 70 percent of participants who responded to a CDC surveysaid they did not wear masks at the event.

The outbreak of covid-19 cases at the conference underscores the persistence of an evolving and highly infectious virus.

Another CDC global health meeting is scheduled for the same hotel in early June; about 300 to 400 people are expected to attend in person, said one CDC employee who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak.

The mind boggles but then Irish logic is gombeen?

its about a 3.5% increase .You could probably save that per annum with a good service from your favourite Spanner Wrestler for under 150 but just checking the oil and water seems to be enough for most motorists .Same with getting the car washed 9 euro and a 5er tip for Paddy the Shammy but still wont service the car .

It was simply softening the blow, in the same way, the energy subsidy via the €600 electricity grant was given.
Now that the subsidy has been exhausted the price stays abnormally high.

Wait until we are forced into a mono-fuel situation, electric houses, and EV cars, and watch the dial go up in electric prices.
F**ked no matter how ya look at it.

Circle K fuel discount cards are available fer all Taxi drivers.

4 cent off per liter and half price car washes + a few other bits on snacks, prizes, etc.
Always prefer to pay for my fuel cash in advance.
You do still pay in cash, you just swipe your tag at the till and the 4 cent comes off then pay as you wish, cash or card.
I even have a second tag which me small fella uses on his private car all the time.
