    Remember, these deaths are almost entirely preventable! Also, a lot of these anti-vaxx voices are sometimes vaxxed themselves.

    If you live in California like I do, be sure to vote NO on the recall of our governor who’s for vaccinations and listening to the scientists and trying to keep us all safe and alive.

    ‘Concerning constellations of mutations’: What to know about the C.1.2 variant of the coronavirus

    Scientists identified a new variant of COVID-19 in South Africa and said in a recently published paper that it displays “concerning constellations of mutations.”

    There are only about 100 documented cases of the C.1.2 variant, first identified in May, in South Africa, according to the KwaZulu-Natal Research Innovation and Sequencing Platform (KRISP), which has been sequencing and tracking variants during the pandemic.

    Something new the unvaccinated can spread around?

    In trying to purge my basenote in a subthread, I apparently purged the entire subthread. Most systems at least ask whether purging the whole subthread is intended, but evidently that was too much to expect here.

    Anyhow, I apologise for trying to raise the issue in the first place and for not being able to write well enough to do it, and to those who gathered ’round with their sacks of rocks in anticipation of enjoyment.

    There are a lot of people surviving covid without vaccines. Personally, I vaccinate to play it safe. My daughter says up to 20% of the people in her hospital for covid are fully vaccinated. Running out of beds in a hurry. Which vaccine they took isn’t making a difference, apparently.

    I don’t remember 20% of kids vaccinated for polio getting the disease.

    Everything we know about the mu variant — the latest coronavirus mutation

    We have watched with bated breath as SARS-CoV-2 — the virus that brought the world to its knees by causing the COVID-19 pandemic — has evolved over and over again into something more effective at spreading through the human population. We have had the delta variant and the lambda variant and the hybrid B.1.429, to name only a few. Whenever a new strain pops up, public health officials try to strike a note between caution and reassurance.

    Now we come to the mu variant, also known as B.1.621.

    The WHO reports that the earliest documented samples of the mu variant came from Colombia in January; the strain now makes up 39 percent of all the cases there. It has also been detected in dozens of other countries, most commonly popping up in the United States, Mexico, Spain and Ecuador. A British risk assessment released last month suggests that the mu variant could be at least as resistant to vaccine-based immunity as the beta strain, although more research needs to be done. The mu variant contains several mutations that have been associated with resistance to immunity, such as E484K and K417N, as well a mutation known as P681H that has been linked to accelerated transmission.

    The unvaxxed sheeple are spreading mu.

    Love these binary takes that make everyone excited…don’t even consider that less than 13% of our (USA) population has contracted the disease ( 41,000,000 cases), and less than 2% of those who contracted it have perished (664,000). Much easier to NOT think or scrutinize facts. THINK. READ.

    We now have Republican-generated “Death Panels” in the form of Triage.

    Reposting a comment from Kentucky ICU nurse @dickanders originally posted on another asinine Steve Kelley cartoon, on 20-Aug-2021 (emphases added):

    “I’ve had some requests to share specifically what I’m seeing in my ICU in Kentucky. It is the exact same thing people are seeing in ICUs across the country.

    1. We are filling up with COVID patients, and fast.

    2. They are getting younger and younger. Our COVID ECMO patients right now are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s.

    3. We have a waiting list for COVID ECMO because we are out of ECMO machines. Being 50 right now means you’re too old to even make it on the waiting list because they prioritize [triage] based on age and how likely we are to be able to save them. We are dealing with significantly limited resources.

    4. About 97% of our hospitalized COVID patients are unvaccinated. All of our COVID ECMO patients are unvaccinated.

    5. Health care providers are TIRED, not to mention BROKEN-HEARTED and FRUSTRATED that we are drowning and it is PREVENTABLE.

    “Please, we are begging you, get vaccinated if you can. Don’t wait to get the Delta or fancy new Lambda variant and need an ICU bed. Please don’t be another patient who had to learn the hard way. I know a lot of you found my fb lives helpful last year when I was in the thick of it. If it would be helpful, I’ll do another one, now that we are back on the thick of it. My emotions are raw, but if I can help convince just one person to get vaccinated, I will gladly cry on fb live. Let me know, friends. (a message from a nurse who is dealing with the results of people demanding their “freedom” to do as they please, without regard to the welfare of others, even their own family)”

    I just read that the European Union has removed the United States as a safe country to fly to because of the Delta COVID – 19 situation. You can blame the anti – vaccination, anti – mask idiots, the republigoons and ESPECIALLY FORMER “President” Donald John Trump for this.

    Have we been vaccinated? Yes.

    Do we wish to force everyone else to become vaccinated? No.

    For those of you who insist that those who fear vaccination, for whatever reason (fake news, previous vaccination reactions, religious concerns, etc…), be coerced, consider this:

    If you really believe the pandemic lives only among the unvaccinated, and they are dying off because of their choice, then you have nothing further to do but wait, and your group will become the majority as a result of their choice. You will no longer need to impose your views on others. Yours will be the only surviving view, or at least the majority, and you can then defeat any surviving opponents at the polls as desired. You win.

    Just be careful the culture does not take a turn you cannot support, because then it might be your turn to be castigated for thinking differently…

    Vindictiveness may be fun, but kindness can be kinder.
