Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 18, 2021

Mississippi doesn't just have the most deaths in the U.S., but one of the highest fatality rates in the world. If Mississippi were a country, it would follow only Peru (612 per 100,000), Hungary (308) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (307) in terms of per capita deaths from Covid-19.

The GQP is a death cult.

Who knew that the GQP was going to deal with the US unfunded liabilities in Medicare and SS using a virus.
The GQP didn't have to push granma off a cliff, they just had to ban masks.

I've already picturing the Mississippi Delta being 90% hippie farmers in 2030.

The Governor was just on CNN trying to explain that it was seasonal, like this was expected and that it would pass. When asked about mitigation efforts like mask and vaccine mandates, he said the people of Mississippi should be allowed to decide for themselves what's right for them. When it was pointed out that this wasn't working, he got very defensive and started to spout crap about people blaming Red states for the Delta variant claiming that Blue states were just as bad in terms of people getting sick and dying.

As of today's data (from the CDC), Mississippi's seven-day average infection rate is nearly 400 cases per 100K of population, while California's is just over a 100. In terms of the death rate, as of today, the seven-day average rate in Mississippi is 5.5 deaths per 100K population, and in California it's 0.8.

No, the Blue states are not in as bad a shape as are the Red states.

Snoofy post where you got that information it needs to be shown far and wide.

Tor, it's the link that OCU posted.
You have to scroll down and expand the section called
"Data Table for Cumulative Deaths per 100k in Last 7 Days"

Florida only reports their COVID death numbers once a week. On other days they just report a 'one' as a place holder.
