Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 24, 2020

Minneapolis doctor Shirlee Xie tearfully describes the difficulties of dealing with the mounting death that Covid deals families: "I took care of a woman who, after over a month in ICU was recovering from Covid and that should be a win. But we were trying to call her family every day to give that an update and we couldn't get a hold of anyone and then we found out ... it was because her husband had died of Covid and her daughter had died of Covid -- all while she was in the hospital. How do you tell somebody that? How do you tell somebody that their family has died?"

I wish all the anti maskers had to go through this.

That's easy.

Tell her we've rounded the corner and it's going away!

I met a couple last weekend who, when I asked them to cover their noses with their masks, told me "Masks don't work!" We had a little 'chat' after that. Their daughter, manning a temperature station at the entrance of a public building, wore her mask like Mom and Dad. When I later apologized to daughter for showing her parents who was #1, daughter told me that she also had Covid.

We are witnessing Darwinism on a mass scale. Too bad many undeserving others have gotten caught up in the killing...

Tell her if we didn't test so much, we'd have thought her daughter and husband simply died of a respiratory infection.

When you consider the threat that anti-maskers actually pose to the rest of us beatings should be the norm.

"We are witnessing Darwinism on a mass scale."

It would be Darwinism if they were only hurting themselves. This is more akin to mass murder.

That's particularly amusing coming from someone posting from the heart of "we don't serve your kind here" country.

When did you become such a whiny beta?

What I don't understand is: We can enforce "no smoking" rules everywhere (do you know how difficult it is to find a place to smoke a cigarette other than your own home or car?), but we can't enforce mask wearing.

Why?

"Why?"

Coronavirus doesn't smell bad.
