It would effect a lot fewer of us if everyone would get vaccinated and get boosters as they come available. Yeah, I know, that would be accepting personal responsibility. Something Republicans like to talk about, but do not like to do.
If it were an actual religious observance, as it was meant to be, it wouldn’t make any difference.
and other common-sense rules, stop at a red light, wear a seat belt, don’t smoke around flammable gasses etc.
Yes………….avoid the "fear-porn’………..hysteria.
Please be attentive it’s spreading to Canadian deer and Euro zoo animals.
Got your booster? Probably not so much, sit back and watch the herd get thinned.
Pray to science.
Pretty sure that whatever negative thing comes of it.. it will be Biden’s fault.
COVID killed Santa! No presents for you.
Shake it up and see what happens . . .
It’s a lesson that we need to vaccinate the world if we want to end this pandemic. The irony is that the U.S. has greatest access to the vaccine, and the most resistance to taking it.
“Don’t worry, the virus is just a hoax cooked up by the commie pinkos to destroy Christmas! I’m sure that on December 26th, this new variant will magically disappear…”
Now where have I hear that before. . . ?
Too bad Santa never gave brains to the anti-vaxxers or anti-maskers.
Recent Covid-19 death rates found to be ‘six times higher’ in heavily-Republican counties
People who live in counties that voted heavily for then-President Donald Trump are more likely to die of Covid-19 than people who live in counties that voted heavily for President Joe Biden, according to a new report.
A review of Covid-19 data by NPR found that people “living in counties that went 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.7 times the death rates of those that went for Biden.” Data examined by NPR included information collected since May in around 3,000 counties. Previous reports have found similar results.
Health care analyst Charles Gaba told NPR that in October death rates were six times higher in the most heavily Republican counties when compared to the most heavily Democratic counties.
“An unvaccinated person is three times as likely to lean Republican as they are to lean Democrat,” Kaiser Family Foundation’s Liz Hamel said. “If I wanted to guess if somebody was vaccinated or not and I could only know one thing about them, I would probably ask what their party affiliation is.”
NPR attributed the increased death rates to misinformation after Kaiser Family Foundation polling found that 94% of Republicans believe that one or more false statements about Covid-19 could be true. The same poll showed that only 14% of Democrats believe false statements about the disease.
Preacher who spread vaccine lies dies after being hospitalized with Covid-19
Prominent Christian televangelist and anti-vaccine advocate Marcus Lamb died after being hospitalized with Covid-19, his family announced Tuesday.
Thank your local anti-vaxer!
The moronic variant is no where near as bad as the tyrants and their propagandists would like it to be.
As chair of the South African Medical Association and a GP of 33 years’ standing, I have seen a lot over my medical career. But nothing has prepared me for the extraordinary global reaction that met my announcement this week that I had seen a young man in my surgery who had a case of Covid that turned out to be the Omicron variant," she writes. “This version of the virus had been circulating in southern Africa for some time, having been previously identified in Botswana. But given my public-facing role, by announcing its presence in my own patient, I unwittingly brought it to global attention.”https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10256373/Dr-ANGELIQUE-COETZEE-discovered-Omicron-says-reacting-threat.html
An anagram for moronic.
Let’s all be good Serfs and cringe in the corner of an airtight bubble. Or, we could ignore these Totalitarian idiots, recognize that there ain’t no such thing as a Nerf World, and on with our lives.
So far, the Omnicron variant has proven to be a very mild one and hospitals in Africa and Europe are not being overrun with Omnicron patients. As for the US, Delta is still the variant and cases are on the rise (though Covid related deaths are only rising in Europe). Last time I checked, Biden has said that his administration will concentrate on vaccines and boosters for Americans that want them over new lockdowns. I have come to the conclusion that the remaining holdouts and hard core anti vaxxers will either get vaxxed or get sick. The rest of us will take steps to protect ourselves and keep living our lives and getting through this. We are not back at square one people! There are more Americans vaxxed than unvaxxed (it’s just that the ones who pitch a hissy over vaccines that get the attention) and well over 55 million joined the ranks of the vaxxed when Delta started raging and they saw their unvaxxed loved ones falling ill. We are getting better at treating those that DO fall seriously ill from Covid and new treatments are still coming out. Take heart, keep calm and carry on. All we can control is ourselves.
Eat a worm and die!
