    So just contract it out

    You just need some increasingly desperate 3rd world country where they speak English and there are cheap workers with poor labour conditions.

      In that case where are all the UK outsourcers? :-)

      Seriously though, 50% of India has had a 1st Jab and 37% 2 jabs.

      So these companies have, well suspiciously high jabbee numbers. Implies that there''s a fast track service either for rich cities or the professional class.

        The other implication is that they're lying liars.

        Those staff turnover numbers are weird too. 20% of the staff leaving? Management ought to be panicking and obviously whatever they're offering to get people to stay is not working.

          Could this explain why our malware deliveries and server login attempts have dropped so much recently?

        Absolutely nothing suspicious here. I write this on the day (21/10/21) india competed 1 billion doses.

        We have now vaccinated >75% of 18+ population with 1st dose and close to 40% fully vaccinated.

        In the city where I come from, >95% of 18+ population has had 1 shot and >50% have had both shots.

        There are vaccines aplenty. A large number of companies (in all sectors) organised vaccine camps for staff & family, at their premises or tied up with pvt hospitals. The companies bore the cost of vaccines and the camps.

        25% of all vaccine production was available for paid vaccinations conducted by private hospitals. It was free for all at govt facilities.

        So no fast track or reservation for anybody was required.
