Headline is...well...scare mongering.

With any luck this thing will be waning over the next several months. Let's hope headlines aren't so desperate for attention as we move foreward.

#6 historically, yes. This is what I'm expecting as well.

There are some public health experts who are saying between natural immunity and vaccines this summer will be the last major wave. They're not expecting this winter to be like last winter.

"More COVID Deaths under Biden WITH a Vaccine than Trump without"

It takes time from shoving them off the cliff for them to land.

But good for you for blaming Biden for Trump's politicization of masks, science, and therefore, vaccines.
