Wyatt Gibson waved at strangers in the grocery store because he knew it made them happy. The 5-year-old danced around in tiny cowboy boots, strumming a toy guitar and singing, "I love donkeys and I love dogs."

This 5 year old boy is dead because some jackasses feel they have the right to contract and spread this very controllable deadly disease.

"We'd been so careful this whole time for it to find us now?"

It didn't just find them. It was waiting for them. I'm sure they did everything they could think of . . . except get tested and get the vaccinations themselves that would have saved their son's life.

Poor little kid. A victim of ignorance and bias.

My Texas Republican Congressman, Mr. Arrington, refuses to advise his constituents to get the vaccine because he "doesn't want to give medical advice".

His office is aware that Delta is increasing hospital admissions in his district. They decline to define the increase as being a "spike".

The family of Wyatt Gibson said the 5-year-old was a healthy boy. That is until last week, his entire family, who live in Whitfield County, contracted the coronavirus, according to the boy's godmother. Wyatt's symptoms were the worse. The little boy suffered an extreme case of pneumonia and a stroke before he died on Friday.

So none of the Adults in the family got vaccinated, and they probably brought it home to their kids. This is terrible. The parents should be locked up for manslaughter.

He's from Calhoun-Gordon County, in the 14th Georgia Congressional District, represented by COVID denier and super spreader of false vaccine information Marjory Traitor Greene. Last I checked it was the least vaccinated district in the state and had the third most COVID infections and deaths statewide. Likely one of her unvaxed POS GQP constituents killed this poor little boy. MTraitorG needs to roast in hell!

Don't be obtuse.

The child cannot get the jab. But the selfish ------ WHO CAN GET THE JAB and refuse to do so and refuse to mask up and refuse to social distance and yell and scream that THEIR KIDS CAN'T BREATHE WITH MASKS ON (which is 100% false) are basically standing on the street corner and pushing kids into oncoming traffic with predictable results. Some won't get it, some will and it will be mild, some it will be severe, some will be permanently damaged and some will die. All because peoples fee fees were more important than common sense precautions.

It is clear the people with the GED know more than virologists by watching a YouTube video.

you can t wear a mask 24-7

That is one hell of a straw man there. Keep it away from flames.

it obviously makes you feel good about yourself.

Antivax maskholes are some of the lowest forms of scum around...they don't give a ---- about themselves and they don't care about the community they live in. They are nothing more than selfish ------. If me being unconcerned about if they die from a virus because they took ZERO precautions to stay safe makes me the bad guy, well then I am the bad guy. I am not giving a ---- about them anymore.

We had four months warning about the delta variant to vax up, mask up and take precautions and the selfish ------ gave us all the finger.

All these red states where vaccine rates are pitiful are petri dishes where this virus can live, run rampant, mutate into more virulent and deadly strains that will effect us all. They are giving the middle finger to everyone. When I read a story about a moron who thought it was a hoax, a democrat talking point, no worse than the flu, blah blah blah who chokes to death on his own fluids as the virus kills off his lung cells I feel nothing. No happiness. No sadness. Nothing.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

No, but his family could to help reduce the chances of getting it and introducing it to their child.

True, but you only need to when in public. Even that's too much for many.

You can get vaccinated to reduce the situations where a mask is prudent. Even that's too much for many.

Stop acting as if this family made a singular mistake or slipped up once. They shunned any and all measures and their child paid the price.

No it doesn't. Guidelines haven't changed for weeks since they foolishly said fully vaccinated can stop wearing masks.

They do work.
You've been shown the empirical data before:
www.cdc.gov

The governor of Kansas issued an executive order requiring wearing masks in public spaces, effective July 3, 2020, which was subject to county authority to opt out. After July 3, COVID-19 incidence decreased in 24 counties with mask mandates but continued to increase in 81 counties without mask mandates.

What are the implications for public health practice?

Countywide mask mandates appear to have contributed to the mitigation of COVID-19 transmission in mandated counties. Community-level mitigation strategies emphasizing use of masks, physical distancing, staying at home when ill, and enhanced hygiene practices can help reduce the transmission of SARS-CoV-2.

Yes, I wear a mask and glasses all the time. It's a pain if you don't get the fit around your nose and face just below your eyes right.

Yeah...so maybe the technical aspects escape me...but when I wear a mask and glasses, my glasses fog up when I exhale. Which suggests that breath is not filtered, but rather redirected upwards.

That doesn't mean it's not effective. A USAF/Boeing study regarding airlines showed that exhaled air would be immediately sucked upwards and away from other passengers.

So maybe it's a question of vector. But I have not seen any study stating that wearing a mask that provides an upward vector is going to save lives.

Nothing new at all. I was replying your dimwitted denier posts last year explaining why it was important to contain the spread because the virus damages organs even in those without symptoms and that the more it spreads the more likely it becomes that new, more dangerous strains develop. Here we are a year later and you are still spreading misinformation while people who believe much of the same misinformation that you have spread in the past refuse the vaccine and continue to spread it and increase the long term risk that it presents.
