Good. At this point covid is now just a covid denier killer. And covid deniers are people our world would be better off without.

They would rather be dead than submit to the Left-Wing, radical masked tyrants. I figure, let 'em go. I and my family are fully vaccinated...

Every time the virus reproduces there is an opportunity for a new variant to emerge.

The delta variant seems to be reproducing significantly in those who are not vaccinated, increasing the possibility for new, more contagious variants to emerge.

So those who deny vaccination and welcome the virus to infect and reproduce within their bodies are possible incubators for worse variants of the virus.

That is one reason why herd immunity is so important, it reduces the number of petri dishes that the virus can reproduce in.

We are also starting to learn more about long-COVID problems, i.e., significant after-effects of COVID-19 that last for months after a person thought they had recovered from the infection.

No worries! It's just a few cases soon to be zero!

Drink some disinfectant and call me in the morning.

Put the lime in the coconut and drink it all down!

And when Trumpy is reinstated as our rightful Prezinut in August he will deny it to death!

I support people's right to die for their principles.

Also, George Soros, Bill Gates, Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris want you to get vaccinated and accept science and liberalism. Your call.

If these idiots would just die peacefully I'd agree. But they jam hospitals and ERs and cost us all a lot of money trying to keep them alive.

Dang, I left off Fauci. Don't forget vaccination is Fauci's idea, you can use bleach if you love freedom.

Are the numbers still high enough to jam hospitals?

If so We should refuse treatment for anyone who refused the vaccine without medical cause.

Coronavirus Is Spreading Rapidly in England, Study Finds
www.bloomberg.com

...The prevalence of Covid-19 in England is increasing exponentially, driven by younger age groups that haven't been vaccinated, according to the latest round of results from the React-1 study.

The research, led by Imperial College London, shows the national prevalence of the virus has increased by 50% in its latest round of analysis recorded between May 20 and June 7, compared with its last round from April 15 to May 3.

A doubling time of around every 11 days was now estimated, with the R number at 1.44, the report said. It also found a re-convergence between prevalence and the pattern of hospitalizations and deaths since late April for those under 65.

This is consistent with the Delta variant now dominating across the country, researchers said in a media briefing. They added that the government's plan to mass vaccinate younger age groups should slow growth. NHS England said yesterday that adults between 21 and 22 years old are now being offered the vaccine, and all who are 18 and older will be eligible by the end of this week....

You talking about the guy who said it would be gone by summer 2020?

And that he never paid stormy daniels?

And that his tax cuts would pay for themselves?

And that he'd hire all the best people?

And that he had a secret plan for better cheaper healthcare?

And that mexico would pay for the wall?

And that he didn't offer a quid pro quo to ukraine?

And that he had no business deals in russia?

I could do this all day.

Some places they are high enough. In India people are dying in hospital parking lots because they can't get in the door. Some rural areas in R states are pretty bad. They didn't have many facilities to start with. Rich people can take their private jets to Mayo Clinic. Poor people don't deserve health care.

And when the small government "c-c-conservatives" refuse to get vaccinated, distance or wear masks they'll die in droves.

All the while blaming Biden for a virus that's suddenly serious and demands action.

Only a Trumpaholic liar would claim anyone is blaming Trump for the virus. He is rightly being blamed for his insistence that masks were unnecessary violations of freedom and causing the deaths of folks who attended his rallies, unmasked like Herman Caine. He downplayed the virus which has killed 600,000 Americans, yeah we are blaming him for that, rightly so.

Will Biden's death toll beat Trump's?

Republicans are doing their level best to make sure Biden's death toll is higher than Trump's!

Thank you for your service, PhesterOBoyle.

It's not the virus, it's the reaction. Or in Donnie Fail's case, inaction. Other than selling Russia all our PPEs.

They way some carry on fear mongering you'd think any covid variants have a 50% mortality rate.

"you'd think any covid variants have a 50% mortality rate."

Funny you should say that. MERS has a 35% fatality rate.

What is the difference between SARS and MERS?
Symptoms of the novel coronavirus strain are milder than SARS and MERS, but it transmits from human-to-human faster than them. Besides, the mortality rate of SARS-CoV-2 is lower (3.4%) than that of SARS-CoV (9.6%) and MERS (35%) [5].

Of course it's here to stay. I've been saying all along it will become a seasonal endemic virus.

The question is how long and painful the anti-science folks are going to make the transition.

And yes, you're part of the problem with your absurd, intentionally uninformed views on this.

The reason for that is a difference of perspective.

There are idiots like you who see only the personal risk and, therefore, don't think 1-2% is a big deal.

Then there are public health professionals who aren't self-centered and realize a worst case scenario means 3-4 million dead and many many more with serious, permanent health effects.

It's all about close minded, shallow thinking vs broad, insightful thinking.
