Corona Virus - How bad is it going to be?

BS. It's not my fault that you have no critical thinking skills and wear your mask like a little sheep just because they tell you to. You have no spark of freedom, independence, self respect, self reliance, individualism or liberty. You'd rather be a slave to Bill Gates and other global elites. They laugh in your +++++ing face every time you go out with your little face diaper on when they brazenly ignore what they tell you to do.  If it were up to people like you we'd be in the same position as New Zealand - still locked down, still scared, and the virus will exact its toll whenever they come out of hiding. The only thing standing between that is people like me. Your ilk will thank people like me one day, and you'll probably say that you were against all this shit, and that of course will be a lie. This folly will be exposed and general consensus will be this was THE stupidest, most brainless, most self-destructive time in centuries other than actual war.

Funny, this is what I was thinking about the unvaxxed Covid deniers. In a year or two, those who were so worked up about liberty and freedom from tyranny will look back and shake their heads and wonder why they chose this as the hill they wanted to die on.

Funny that Bob goes off on one of his rants...just as the nurse gives me my Vid booster.

 

 

Life is all about balance...

Will you get a booster every six months for the rest of your life?

If need be.  I get a flu shot every year, too (got that today, too).  So what.  It's only a big deal if you make it one.

Interesting bit about both positive and negative effects of residual Neanderthal DNA on Covid.

Neanderthals.

 

 

 

Good God...the potential smartass comments...

Not good for now:

 

 

Can expected news really be bad news? This is going to be a seasonal virus. People can accept that and act accordingly (got my booster last week) or go away, IMO. If this winter we see the same sequence of coverage and reaction as we did with the first surge, I'm gonna flip my lid.

I don’t know about that expected thing.  And, I don’t think Topol’s tweet was well nuanced.   There was and is hope and positing (by some smart folks) that the combination of vaccination levels, including kids albeit lower, and convalescent immunities with a large plurality of the nation having recovered from prior infection that the winter surge would be fractional to the ‘20-‘21 Winter.  The Delta wave still looks more regional with many states trending down while growing in some of the more populated parts of the country.

I still think this winter will be muted compared to the last.  The roll out of the antivirals plus 3rd doses (2nd for JNJ) should make a big difference on what matters (serious cases and mortalities).

I’m in Idaho policy and behaviors are what they will be no matter.

My hopes as well.  Hawaii s heavy vaccinated with Vac requirements to enter restaurants, bars, and big events, masking indoors still mandatory, that should make this a milder surge.  (there is no winter in hawaii yet the virus comes and goes). With a wife with lung issues I am very happy to not be living in Wyo, Montana, or Idaho right now

Our vaccinated rate being hospitalized has been ticking up lately.  Still significantly less than unvaccinated for sure.  But a little concerning that we are up to 18% of covid hospitalizations being vaccinated....

Assuming they don't, you know, actually die on that hill.

The virus is gonna infect until it burns out. The more vaccinated, the better chance it burns out, but in the meantime, if all that is left is vaccinated with weakened vax, it is gonna hit them. Those with underlying conditions are still in harms way even if vaxxed. At least until this burns out. They need to still be taking extra precautions. And yes, some of those will end up hospitalized. 

But the vaccinations have still boosted the mortality rate significantly. When this is all done in a year or two, the numbers will bare this out. Despite the political message du jour. It is hard to prove a negative so people can spin it how they want.

Exhibit A: Bob and that one guy he follows on Twitter.

Vermont's leads nation in new COVID cases and vaccination rate (news10.com)

 

Now what?

I've got some news for you.   Covid is here to stay.....just like the flu.    Different variants, different strains.    It will always be around.   Like the flu, however, it will become so widespread that the entire population will have developed a basic level of immunity and against the various strains and the mortality rates will go way down.    These mandates, masking........and other bullshit will eventually die in time.........just like they did with the lockdowns and all the other garbage they were doing in the beginning.     Go live your life.

Unfortunately the boosters aren't as popular as the initial Vax in CO. I think its going to continue going up as everyone's vaccination wears off.
