THE PANDEMIC



—  THE FOURTH WAVE — DELTA WARNING  — 

It is time for some hard lines as we are facing another national crisis caused by a virus with no political beliefs, no religious beliefs, authored stupid commentary, social media distortions,  party affiliations and the spore thrives on ignorance and stupidity.   The DELTA version morph has a velcro type exterior that clings better to new exposures and affects children as well as adults.

Supported by lies and false news, theories , social media clowns, conspiratorialists, mostly (99%) Reptilians are killing Americans.  The old GOP Republicans Grey heads doing nothing but obstruct.  Those who have not been vaccinated are not only a threat to themselves but their loved ones.

Freedom of speech is one thing but conspiracies and mis-informants have to be dealt with humanly but severely.  Hanging humanely means NEW manila or Fine manila Hemp  rope not some old polystyrene stuff or wire like the Axis during WWII used.

I have no compassion for the deaths of these mentioned radio hosts as they by virtue of their blowhard, bullsh*t, un-scientific, screwball conspiracy theories, caused simple-minded idiots to not vaccinate.  

In my book thats collusion with murder. They did play a part in it.  And God listened —  And the Messiah of Mixed-Up-Messaging was our former President  Donald J. T-RUMP, Scumbag Emeritus but not dead yet soon hopefully… as a care-giver and volunteer responder, I have seen enough 



🤮 People - Regurgitating - Intelligent - Certifiable - Knowledge 🤮 

SHALL WE ELECT RADIO SHOW HOSTS AS 

POSTER CHILDREN FOR IGNORANT DEATH

Four conservative radio talk-show hosts bashed coronavirus vaccines.  Then they got sick  —  Marc Bernier, left, interviewing Karl Rove ( another big mouth Reptilian jerk-off ) in 2006, proclaimed himself on his radio show to be “Mr. Anti-Vax.”   (Ron Edmonds/AP — Story by Paul Farhi).        

SIDEBAR:  ED:  We called the picture two P.R.I.C.K.s  and an open MIC. All have been nominated for the P.R.I.C.K awards which stands for “  People Regurgitating Intelligent Certifiable Knowledge” and words do have meanings  —   640,000 Dead Meanings — adding Brazil’s Bolsonaro coached by T-RUMP 615,000 additional  —

Marc Bernier was adamant: He was not going to get a coronavirus vaccination.  “I’m Mr. Anti-Vax,” he told listeners of his talk-radio program in Daytona Beach, Fla., after the federal government provisionally approved the first vaccines in December. He later declared that the government was “acting like Nazis” in urging people to get vaccinated. And he was a T-Rump supporter? Now there’s a real Nazi.

But in early August, WNDB, Bernier’s radio home for more than 30 years, announced that the 65-year-old host was being treated in a hospital for covid-19. On Saturday, the station said that Bernier had died.

Lucifer Mestopheles welcomed him and the others who were deniers and as soon as T-RUMP arrives they’ll play on the new Golf course which features lava pits instead of sand traps and water hazards filled with Caiman…


Verbal Constipation  —  Sufferers  — 

Those who are so backed up by bullsh*t for radio ratings do not recognize the danger they put people into.  God was not impressed. They are dead by COVID.

1—  Marc Bernier was at least the fourth talk-radio host who had espoused anti-vaccine and anti-mask sentiments to succumb to the virus in August. 

2—  There was also Phil Valentine, 61, a popular talk show host in Tennessee.

3—  Jimmy DeYoung, 81, a nationally syndicated Christian preacher also based in Tennessee,  Lucifer liked him  —  

4—  Dick Farrel, 65, who had worked for stations in Miami and Palm Beach, Fla., as well as for the conservative Newsmax TV channel.  ( Newsmax makes FOX fake news look like beginners, Newsmax has better bullshitters) 

  • All four men had publicly couched their opposition to mainstream public health efforts in the typically hyperbolic and sometimes paranoid rhetoric of conservative talk radio.  
  • Farrel, for example, called coronavirus mitigation efforts “a scam-demic” and described the government’s top infectious-disease expert, Anthony S. Fauci, as “a power-tripping, lying freak.” 
  • At one point earlier this year, DeYoung, host of the “Prophecy Today” program, asked a guest whether the vaccine rollout could be “another form of government control of the people.”
  • Valentine’s sentiments took the form of a song parody — a format that had also been a favorite of the late talk-radio titan Rush Limbaugh. Valentine’s tune was called “Vaxman,” based on the Beatles’ “Taxman.”


Let me tell you how it will be, And I don’t care if you agree,
‘Cause I’m the Vaxman, Yeah, I’m the Vaxman.
If you don’t like me coming ’round, Be thankful I don’t hold you down . . .


To some observers and critics, the hosts’ deaths highlighted talk radio’s often overlooked role as a vector of vaccine resistance and coronavirus misinformation. While several nationally syndicated hosts, such as Hugh Hewitt and Ben Shapiro, have spoken out to advocate for vaccines, hosts at hundreds of local stations have offered messages similar to those of Valentine, Farrel and Bernier.

Why so many listeners?  It’s simple, it sells to morons , idiots, conspiratorialists, and right-wingers and simple minded jack-asses  —  who are less educated, younger and brain-washed by the “ Fake News’ lies.  The real fake news is what comes out of the Reptilian GOP party and T-RUMP.


“The vaccine isn’t the problem. Talk radio is,” said Jerry Del Colliano, a professor at New York University and publisher and editor of Inside Music Media, which covers the radio industry. Radio companies, he said, “are risking the health of their audiences even as anti-vaxer bloviators continue to die.”



T-RUMP Has Converted Talk-Radio Hosts Into A Loyal Army Of Assholes  — 

Del Colliano faulted lax oversight by the Federal Communications Commission and indifference by major radio station owners, such as iHeartRadio and Cumulus Media, the two largest talk-station companies.

Cumulus — which owns more than 400 stations in 80 cities, including the station that aired Valentine’s program — has mandated vaccination for all of its 4,000 employees; iHeart has no such mandate. The companies did not respond to requests for comment.

In the absence of vaccinations, the four hosts appear to have been particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. All were older than 60, an age at which the risk of severe illness and death increases dramatically. All lived and worked in two states, Florida and Tennessee, that have been particularly hard hit by the highly contagious delta variant.


Limbaugh Set The Tone  —  
More broadly, the vaccine skepticism and outright defiance of public health mandates may have been baked into talk radio’s DNA ever since Limbaugh became a national force in the early 1990s, said Brian Rosenwald, a University of Pennsylvania scholar and the author of “Talk Radio’s America: How an Industry Took Over a Political Party That Took Over the United States.”  T-RUMP gave him the medal of freedom, I would have preferred a sentence.

“Talk radio is inherently the outsider’s medium,” said Rosenwald, who also edits The Washington Post’s Made by History section. One common theme for hosts over the past three decades has been criticism of the mainstream media and the so-called liberal establishment, consisting of the Democratic Party, Hollywood, universities and other perceived “elites,” he noted.

As such, the medium is “perfectly suited” to questioning the medical establishment and the use of government power, even when doing so might contradict scientific knowledge and undermine public health, he said. Even as he was receiving state-of-the-art care for cancer last year, Limbaugh maintained a skeptical, conspiratorial pose, falsely dismissing the then-emerging coronavirus as “the common cold” and saying, without evidence, that it was being “weaponized” to attack President Donald Trump.

Rush Limbaugh is dead and a good riddance for what he really was, a druggie clown.  And so is the conservative talk-radio industry.  God listened and took the four biggest players out.


  • Covid Warning  —  I still wear a mask since people are in stores, no masks coughing and hacking from a myriad of personal germ based illnesses, sources, COVID and Variants,  and flu startups this season, need I say more  —   I live in Florida, enough said. allergies, plants and trees blooming, people sweating, high humidity, the flu, Hep-A and B epidemics, non-bathers, a particularly dumb ignorant political hack for Governor who dislikes masks and is a T-RUMP brain-washed toad load of sh*t taking money from schools who have a mask mandate, and you ask or question me about wearing a mask? 

  • No vaccine, you are a moron…because if you croak,  who cares but who will you infect by your ignorance and reliance on mis-information.  I do not coddle dumb people, who think Pro Wrestling  ( The WWE House of Steroids) is real and the tooth fairy recently pays bigger dividends this year…   education is the only cure for stupidity… and almost or more than half of our schools are failing.  

  • Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (Ap) — Doctors in Florida say they’re seeing many more coronavirus infections among children just as students begin to return to classrooms. There has been “an enormous increase” in COVID-19 cases among children in July and August at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ronald Ford said.
    Most of these children have been treated in the emergency room and sent home, but “those that are admitted are sicker than what we’ve seen before, and many of them are requiring care in our intensive care units,” Ford said.

  • But Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (  known locally a s the biggest Frickin Idiot the State has seen) says the share of pediatric hospitalizations is still between 1.1% and 1.4% in the state, which is how it has behaved throughout the pandemic. On Wednesday, 177 of the 15,071 patients with COVID-19 — about 1.2 % — were children, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  But how many of those kids dragged it home?  Our governor is an acclaimed idiot.  Florida suffers from these imbeciles we call our politicians and their funky friends who live in the Villages.

  • “There’s been no change in the proportion of pediatric patients who are COVID positive,” he said. “Obviously we have more people that are COVID positive in hospitals than we did six weeks ago, so the raw numbers are increasing for everybody.”

  • I pray everyday that if someone with a .338 Lapua or 338 Winchester Magnum,Super puts one thru T-RUMPS heart and that it be a Silver molded bullet because that what it take to kill Dracula.  It would be nice if Herr Von De Santis was standing directly behind the former Pre-mental Leader and we got two for one.


West Virginia Governor Speaks Out 

(CNN) For the last two weeks or so, I have been carrying around an anger bordering on rage regarding the chunk of Americans eligible to receive the Covid-19 vaccine who continue to refuse it.  It's worth quoting at length:

ED: I haven't been able to articulate that anger well.  I am more of a baseball bat theologian as that might be the only way to knock some sense into imbeciles, ignorants and morons.   Or at least not as well as Gov. Jim Justice, the Republican governor of West Virginia did in a press conference this week speaking from his heart.

"For god's sake's a-livin', how difficult is this to understand? Why in the world do we have to come up with these crazy ideas -- and they're crazy ideas -- that the vaccine's got something in it and its tracing people wherever they go. And the same very people who are saying that are carrying their cell phones around. I mean come on. Come on."

Amen, Governor.

Justice's frustration, his anger and his puzzlement -- I share every single bit of it. Every. Single. Bit. (West Virginia currently ranks fifth nationwide in the numbers of cases per 100,000 residents,according to data maintained by The New York Times.)

Because this isn't about what political party you belong to. Justice, it's worth noting, was elected in 2016 as a Democrat but switched -- to much national hoopla -- to the Republican Party during the Trump presidency.

Getting a vaccine that is 90%+ effective in avoiding serious hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19 has absolutely zero to do with how much you like or hate Donald Trump. Or Joe Biden. Or Jim Justice. Or any other politician in the country. 

The idea that you can own the liberals or show the media or prove Dr. Anthony Fauci wrong by not taking the vaccine is a gamble -- one in which the stakes are your life.   And not just your life;  there are lots and lots of immunocompromised adults who can't be vaccinated. There are millions of kids under 12 -- including one in my house -- who can't be vaccinated yet.

If you don't want to do it for you, then do it for them.

Again, Justice: "The only weapon we have to fight back with is the vaccinations." Yes. Yes. Yes.




—  PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE  —  

The Lying Doctor Quack

The Most Influential Spreader of Coronavirus Misinformation Online  —  Dr. Joseph Mercola 

Researchers and regulators say Joseph Mercola, an osteopathic physician, creates and profits from misleading claims about Covid-19 vaccines.  Joseph Mercola, an osteopathic physician in Cape Coral, Fla., is a key figure in the “Disinformation Dozen” spreading anti-vaccine messaging, researchers said.

I know “ Mercola”  sounds a lot like “ Dr. Mengele", the notorious sadist experimenter of the Hitler NAZI regime during the second world war.   The world really did not need either of these two.

The article that appeared online on Feb. 9 began with a seemingly innocuous question about the legal definition of vaccinesThen over its next 3,400 words, it declared coronavirus vaccines were “a medical fraud” and said the injections did not prevent infections, provide immunity or stop transmission of the disease.

Instead, the article claimed, the shots “alter your genetic coding, turning you into a viral protein factory that has no off-switch.”  Its assertions were easily disprovable. No matter. Over the next few hours, the article was translated from English into Spanish and Polish. It appeared on dozens of blogs and was picked up by anti-vaccination activists, who repeated the false claims online. The article also made its way to Facebook, where it reached 400,000 people, according to data from CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned tool.

The entire effort traced back to one person:  Joseph Mercola.  Dr. Mercola, 67, an osteopathic physician in Cape Coral, Fla., has long been a subject of criticism and government regulatory actionsfor his promotion of unproven or unapproved treatments. But most recently, he has become the chief spreader of coronavirus misinformation online, according to researchers.


A Track Record Of Lies and Mis-Information   An internet-savvy entrepreneur who employs dozens, Dr. Mercola has published over 600 articles on Facebook that cast doubt on Covid-19 vaccines since the pandemic began, reaching a far larger audience than other vaccine skeptics, an analysis by The New York Times found. His claims have been widely echoed on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

The activity has earned Dr. Mercola, a natural health proponent with an Everyman demeanor, the dubious distinction of the top spot in the “Disinformation Dozen,” a list of 12 people responsible for sharing 65 percent of all anti-vaccine messaging on social media, said the nonprofit Center for Countering Digital Hate. Others on the list include Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a longtime anti-vaccine activist, and Erin Elizabeth, the founder of the website Health Nut News, who is also Dr. Mercola’s girlfriend.

“Mercola is the pioneer of the anti-vaccine movement,” said Kolina Koltai, a researcher at the University of Washington who studies online conspiracy theories. “He’s a master of capitalizing on periods of uncertainty, like the pandemic, to grow his movement.”

Some high-profile media figures have promoted skepticism of the vaccines, notably Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham of Fox News, though other Fox personalities have urged viewers to get the shots. Now, Dr. Mercola and others in the “Disinformation Dozen” are in the spotlight as vaccinations in the United States slow, just as the highly infectious Delta variant has fueled a resurgence in coronavirus cases.  More than 97 percent of people hospitalized for Covid-19 are unvaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


LET US LOOK TO THE RUSSIANS FOR AN ANSWER    When you push lies against the common good and cause many to suffer I propose the “ Stalin - Putin method of treating someone who perpetrates anti-or negative incorrect thinking”.   It’s simple saves time and money and totally eliminates a problem,  It actually accomplishes three goals with limited  constraint on the truth or process, and eliminates all confusion by simply blowing the idiots head off with a full burst from an AK47 --

Advantage  1—  You Shoot The Person Making Claims - No More Problems From This Person  —  OK
Advantage  2—  You Now Do Not Have The Problem To Worry About,  Worry About Other Things  —  OK
Advantage  3—  Others Seeing This Solution Will Not Follow In His Footsteps  —  OK
Solutions    4—  Don’t blame the children  —  OK  — 


FLA — Governor Herr Von De Santis and His proposed Hitler Youth Mask Core — 
In reference to Covid and our children, masks and attending school are important, more so is the safety of our children. Our problem is theIr dumb-ass parents who eventually take up a fight of ignorance without masking and vaccines while letting contamination of their own children.  

Those pushing freedom of choice have a legitimate right to choose but morally they are defunct scumbags who eventually will get ill and should be refused medical help in a full capacity facility already overloaded for someone who followed the suggestions and needs that space.  They have a right to choose, but when danger affects others health, they loose that right.  I just got a call, one kid contaminated his 25 schoolmates.

And add a mentally defunct Ober Governfuerer  Herr Von De Santis, an imbecile, certified T-RUMP Trumpet and scumbag  who is telling our teachers and school boards masks are not needed should be removed or he will stop school funding.  I would like to invoke  MAGA  — Make America Great —Assassinate  —  time for the GOP clowns to go.


Truth Hurts And Sometimes Kills  —  ( Notes from the Atlantic) The COVID-19 vaccines have done an extraordinary job of stamping out disease and death. But as the hypertransmissible Delta variant hammers the United States, the greatest hardships are being taken on by the unvaccinated, a population that includes some 50 million children younger than age 12. 

Across the country, pediatric cases of COVID-19 are skyrocketing alongside cases among unimmunized adults; child hospitalizations have now reached an all-time pandemic high. In the last week of July, nearly 72,000 new coronavirus cases were reported in kids—almost a fifth of all total known infections in the US, and a rough doubling of the previous week’s stats. “It’s the biggest jump in the pandemic so far” among children, Lee Beers, the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, told me. Last week, that same statistic climbed to nearly 94,000.

The most serious pediatric cases are among the pandemic’s worst to date. In the South, where communities have struggled to get shots into arms and enthusiasm for masks has been spotty, intensive-care units in children’s hospitals are filling to capacity. In several states, health workers say that kids—many of them previously completely healthy—are coming in sicker and deteriorating faster than ever before, with no obvious end in sight.

Kids remain, as they have been throughout the pandemic, at much lower risk of getting seriously sick with the coronavirus, especially compared with unvaccinated adults. But the recent rash of illnesses among the nation’s youngest is a sobering reminder of the COVID-19 adage that lower risk is not no risk. With so many children unable to access vaccines and their health contingent on those around them, parents and guardians must now navigate the reality that Delta represents a more serious danger to everyone—which means it’s a more serious danger to kids as well.

One of the worst parts of Delta’s summer upswing, health workers told me, is that so many of them felt powerless to stop it. The United States got a grim preview of the variant’s substantial powers when it first pummeled other countries—India, the United Kingdom—in several spots, battering unvaccinated adults before seeping down to kids. 

By the time Delta was spreading in earnest in America, many residents had declared the pandemic more or less over, loosening restrictions, reopening businesses, and shedding their face coverings. “As soon as mask mandates went away, COVID came back,” Angela Brown, a charge nurse at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, in Missouri, told me. “And it’s back more than it was last year.” 

All the while, Delta was establishing itself as a more formidable foe than the ones that had come before it—more contagious, more antibody-evasive, and, according to some early and tentative data, more apt to drive disease.


👹  Online Falsehoods and Scams    President Biden has blamed online falsehoods for causing people to refrain from getting the injections. But even as Mr. Biden has urged social media companies to “ do something about the misinformation,” Dr. Mercola and others lie selling their quack routines   shows the difficulty of that task.

👹  Over the last decade, Dr. Mercola has built a vast operation to push natural health cures, disseminate anti-vaccination content and profit from all of it, said researchers who have studied his network. In 2017, he filed an affidavit claiming his net worth was “in excess of $100 million.”  Lies and misconceptions obviously do work and it seems there is an abundance of stupid people.

👹  And rather than directly stating online that vaccines don’t work, Dr. Mercola’s posts often ask pointed questions about their safety and discuss studies that other doctors have refuted. Facebook and Twitter have allowed some of his posts to remain up with caution labels, and the companies have struggled to create rules to pull down posts that have nuance.

👹  “He has been given new life by social media, which he exploits skillfully and ruthlessly to bring people into his thrall,” said Imran Ahmed, director of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which studies misinformation and hate speech. Its “Disinformation Dozen” report has been cited in congressional hearings and by the White House.

👹  In an email, Dr. Mercola said it was “quite peculiar to me that I am named as the #1 superspreader of misinformation.” Some of his Facebook posts were only liked by hundreds of people, he said, so he didn’t understand “how the relatively small number of shares could possibly cause such calamity to Biden’s multibillion dollar vaccination campaign.”   The efforts against him are political, Dr. Mercola added, and he accused the White House of “ illegal censorship by colluding with social media companies.”

👹  He did not address whether his coronavirus claims were factual. “I am the lead author of a peer reviewed publication regarding vitamin D and the risk of Covid-19 and I have every right to inform the public by sharing my medical research,” he said. The Times was unable to verify the claims in the study, which was published by Nutrients, a monthly journal from Molecular Diversity Preservation International, a nonprofit in Basel, Switzerland.

👹  A native of Chicago, Dr. Mercola started a small private practicein 1985 in Schaumburg, Ill. In the 1990s, he began shifting to natural health medicine and opened his main website, Mercola.com, to share his treatments, cures and advice. The site urges people to “take control of your health.”

👹  In 2003, he published a book, “The No-Grain Diet,” which became a New York Times best seller. He has since published books almost yearly. In 2015, he moved to Florida.

As his popularity grew, Dr. Mercola began a cycle. It starts with making unproven and sometimes far-fetched health claims, such as that spring mattresses amplify harmful radiation, and then selling products online — from vitamin supplements to organic yogurt — that he promotes as alternative treatments.

👹  To buttress the operation, he set up companies like Mercola.com Health Resources and Mercola Consulting Services. These entities have offices in Florida and the Philippines with teams of employees. Using this infrastructure, Dr. Mercola has seized on news moments to rapidly publish blog posts, newsletters and videos in nearly a dozen languages to a network of websites and social media.

👹  His audience is substantial. Dr. Mercola’s official English-language Facebook page has over 1.7 million followers, while his Spanish-language page has 1 million followers. The Times also found 17 other Facebook pages that appeared to be run by him or were closely connected to his businesses. On Twitter, he has nearly 300,000 followers, plus nearly 400,000 on YouTube.

👹  Dr. Mercola has a keen understanding of what makes something go viral online, said two former employees, who declined to be identified because they had signed nondisclosure agreements. He routinely does A/B testing, they said, in which many versions of the same content are published to see what spreads fastest online.

👹  Facebook said it has labeled many of Dr. Mercola’s posts as false, banned advertising on his main page and removed some of his pages after they violated its policies. Twitter said it has also taken down some of Dr. Mercola’s posts and labeled others. YouTube said Dr. Mercola was not part of a program from which he can make money from ads on his videos.

👹  In 2012, Dr. Mercola began writing about the virtues of tanning beds. He argued that they reduced the chances of getting cancer, while also selling tanning beds with names like Vitality and D-lite for $1,200 to $4,000 each. Many of the articles were based on discredited studies.

👹  The Federal Trade Commission brought false-advertising claims against Dr. Mercola in 2017 based on the health claims about tanning beds. He settled and sent $2.95 million in refunds to customers who bought the tanning beds.

Food And Drug Administration    The Food and Drug Administration has also issued warning letters to Dr. Mercola for selling unapproved health products in 2005, 2006 and 2011.

👹  Many of Dr. Mercola’s claims have been amplified by other vaccine skeptics, including Ms. Elizabeth. She worked for Mercola.com from 2009 to 2011, according to her LinkedIn page.  But while Ms. Elizabeth and others are overtly anti-vaccine, Dr. Mercola has appeared more approachable because he takes less radical positions than his peers, Ms. Koltai said. “He takes away from the idea that an anti-vaccination activist is a fringe person,” she said.

👹  In an email, Ms. Elizabeth said she was “shocked to have been targeted as one of the 12” in the “Disinformation Dozen” and called it a “witch hunt.”    When the coronavirus hit last year, Dr. Mercola jumped on the news, with posts questioning the origins of the disease. In December, he used a study that examined mask-wearing by doctors to argue that masks did not stop the spread of the virus. 

👹  He also began promoting vitamin supplements as a way to ward off the coronavirus. In a warning letter on Feb. 18, the F.D.A. said Dr. Mercola had “misleadingly represented” what were “unapproved and misbranded products” on Mercola.com as established Covid-19 treatments.

👹  In May, Dr. Mercola took down many of his own Facebook posts to evade the social network’s crackdown on anti-vaccine content.  Facebook also recently removed his Feb. 9 article.  

👹  But Dr. Mercola has continued to raise vaccine questions. In a Facebook post on Friday, he used another study to mull how useful the Pfizer vaccine was against Covid-19 variants. One headline in the post said the vaccine was only 39 percent effective, but it did not cite another statistic from the study that said the vaccine was 91 percent effective against serious illness.  “Is this possible? We were told 95 percent effectiveness,” he wrote.

MORE DANGEROUS THAN THE ORIGIONAL 

👺  Delta is more contagious than the other virus strains  —  Delta is the name for the B.1.617.2. variant, a SARS-CoV-2 mutation that originally surfaced in India. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called this version of the virus “the fastest and fittest.” In mid-June, the CDC labeled Delta as “a variant of concern,” using a designation also given to the Alpha strain that first appeared in Great Britain, the Beta strain that first surfaced in South Africa, the two Epsilon variants first diagnosed in the U.S., and the Gamma strain identified in Brazil. 
“It’s actually quite dramatic how the growth rate will change,” says Dr. Wilson. Delta is spreading 50% faster than Alpha, which was 50% more contagious than the original strain of SARS-CoV-2, he says. “In a completely unmitigated environment—where no one is vaccinated or wearing masks—it’s estimated that the average person infected with the original coronavirus strain will infect 2.5 other people,” Dr. Wilson says. “In the same environment, Delta would spread from one person to maybe 3.5 or 4 other people.”


👺  Unvaccinated And Young People Are at risk  —   People who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are most at risk.  In the US, there is a disproportionate number of unvaccinated people in Southern and Appalachian states including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, and West Virginia, where vaccination rates are low  and Kids and young people are a concern as well.  These are Republican strongholds.   “A recent study from the United Kingdom showed that children and adults under 50 were 2.5 times more likely to become infected with Delta.  “But Delta seems to be impacting younger age groups more than previous variants.”


👺  Delta could lead to 'hyperlocal outbreaks’  —  If Delta continues to move fast enough to accelerate the pandemic, Dr. Wilson says the biggest questions will be about transmissibility—how many people will get the Delta variant and how fast will it spread?
The answers could depend, in part, on where you live—and how many people in your location are vaccinated, he says. “I call it ‘patchwork vaccination,’ where you have these pockets that are highly vaccinated that are adjacent to places that have 20 percent vaccination,” Dr. Wilson says. “The problem is that this allows the virus to hop, skip, and jump from one poorly vaccinated area to another.”
In some cases, a low-vaccination town that is surrounded by high vaccination areas could end up with the virus contained within its borders, and the result could be “hyperlocal outbreaks,” he says. “Then, the pandemic could look different than what we’ve seen before, where there are real hotspots around the country.”  

👺  There is still more to learn about Delta  —  One important question is whether the Delta strain will make you sicker than the original virus. “Based on hospitalizations tracked in Great Britain which has been about a month ahead of the US with Delta, the variant is probably more pathogenetic,”  a study from Scotland that showed the Delta variant was about twice as likely as Alpha to result in hospitalization in unvaccinated individuals (and vaccines reduced that risk significantly).

Another question focuses on how Delta affects the body. There have been reports of symptoms that are different than those associated with the original coronavirus strain, Dr Yildirim says. “It seems like cough and loss of smell are less common. And headache, sore throat, runny nose, and fever are present based on the most recent surveys in the U.K., where more than 90% of the cases are due to the Delta strain,” she says.
 It’s unclear whether Delta could cause more breakthrough cases—infections in people who have been vaccinated or have natural immunity from a prior COVID-19 infection, which so far have been rare in general. “Breakthrough is a big question,” Dr. Wilson says. “At least with immunity from the mRNA vaccines, it doesn’t look like it will be a problem.” A Public Health England analysis (in a preprint that has not yet been peer-reviewed) showed that at least two of the vaccines are effective against Delta. 

👺  Vaccination is the best protection against Delta  —  The most important thing you can do to protect yourself from Delta is to get fully vaccinated, the doctors say. That means if you get a two-dose vaccine like Pfizer or Moderna, for example, you must get both shots and then wait the recommended two-week period for those shots to take full effect.
 

👺  What is most concerning about the new variant of COVID-19 from South Africa —  A variant called B. 1.351, which first appeared in South Africa, may have the ability to re-infect people who have recovered from earlier versions of the coronavirus. It might also be somewhat resistant to some of the coronavirus vaccines in development.


SIDEBAR   My belief is when stupid, ignorant selfish goose stepping politicians gain office,  it took the stupid, ignorant, selfish, voters lacking education to elect them  —   And backing up the Gremky-Freebish theory of Cranial-Rectal Dyslexia —  that plagues (GOP) Reptilian Party Politicians, some of them are so dumb — We don’t know how they remember to breathe  — 

Our continuing offer to provide free Lobotomies for those who believe in these politicians  and their false narratives will continue unless one day they wake up and realize how frickin stupid they really are.

It raises the point:    Is Sh*t for Brains Dyslexia Contagious?  Science tells us 37%, basically the Republican Base seems to be suffering,  believing anything their politicians tell them,  we are shocked when statistics show that Ignorance is the most common disorder Republicans Base Voters suffer from  —  



THE UNVACCINATED

Who are the Unvaccinated?  Young, less Educated, Republicans, People of Color, Uninsured

As of late May 2021, a majority of US adults have received a COVID-19 vaccine, with 62% of adults reporting having gotten at least one dose according to the KFF COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor. There are still substantial shares of the adult population who have not received a vaccine and many do not plan on getting vaccinated. 

This analysis, drawing on data from the KFF COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor, provides some insights into the demographics of the currently unvaccinated population as well as their views of vaccines generally and the pandemic more broadly.

Unvaccinated adults are a shrinking population in the US that, as of late May 2021, consists of about one-third of U.S. adults (37%). Adults in this group are those, who despite outreach efforts and being eligible for a vaccine for at least six weeks, have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. 


SIDEBAR:  Deny them full Hospital Coverage… It was their call, devote saving lives in hospitals to those who did the right thing.  Ignorance is not a disease, it’s just a self chosen way of life… by simpletons and you can die… 

The ignorant have cost our economy, our medical staff stretched to the limit, death and destruction of families and the carriers have denied those their health with obstruction…   I’m sorry but listening to morons and lies have jaded my thinking and it’s more important to save 63% and let the 37% go alone. It was their choice    




  • Unvaccinated adults are significantly younger, with 29% of those in the group falling in the 18-29 year old range compared to 17% of those in the vaccinated group. In addition, a smaller share of unvaccinated adults are 65 and older (9%) than the vaccinated group (28%). This may reflect recent changes in access to vaccines with older populations being among the first groups eligible to be vaccinated in states. President Biden announced that 90% of adults would be eligible to get the vaccine by April 19 but there were still significant waiting times for many adults who had just gotten eligible. 

  • Over the next few weeks we will better know whether these age differences are due to vaccine access or to actual different vaccine intentions among younger adults.  There are strong partisan differences in vaccine intentions with almost half (49%) of unvaccinated adults identifying as Republicans or Republican-leaning independents, compared to three in ten (31%) vaccinated adults. On the other hand, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents make up a majority of the vaccinated population (about six in ten), while about three in ten in the unvaccinated population identify as Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents.

  • Compared to vaccinated adults, smaller shares of White adults are unvaccinated, with no significant differences for Black and Hispanic adults on whether they have received at least one-dose so far, despite Black and Hispanic adults lagging in vaccination rates compared to Whites. Around two-thirds (64%) of vaccinated adults are White, compared to 56% of unvaccinated adults. With difficulty accessing vaccine locations and services disproportionately impacting the non-White population, current outreach continues to strive to bridge the gap.

  • Americans with lower levels of education make up a larger share of the unvaccinated population than the vaccinated one, with 46% of unvaccinated adults holding a high school degree or less compared to 34% of vaccinated adults. Vaccinated Americans are twice as likely as unvaccinated to have a college degree or higher (38% vs. 19%).

  • The unvaccinated group also tends to include disproportionate shares of adults without health insurance coverage as well as those with lower levels of income. Those under the age of 65 without insurance make up about one quarter of the unvaccinated population, and 42% of all unvaccinated adults report earning less than $40K a year.


Corrupt Beliefs Shared By Many Reptilians (Republicans)

  • The South did not lose the war between the states it will win by gerrymandering and corrupt voting legislation — 
  • Donald T-RUMP won the election by a landslide, lost by a sh*t slide  —  
  • All of T-RUMPS lies are real lies not truth, almost 30,243 to date from all four reporting services  — 
  • The PillowCreep tells us  T-RUMP was sent us by God to solve our problems  —  More like a False Prophet  — 
  • The Covid-19 is a Democratic Party Hoax  —  640,000 disprove that theory — 
  • 99% of those with severe Delta COVID, with no vaccinations have died  — they claim thats false news  — 
  • Those claiming Reptilians are dumber than rocks owe an apology to the rocks…Rocks keep their mouths shut and rarely get out of place  — And a rock will never lie to you  — 
  • Reptilian politicians practice the NAZI Goose step very afternoon as they just do what they are told to do and betray the people who voted for them.  McConnell and McCarthy still calling the Cadence of Corruption  —    
  • Going back to our origional theory you can’t elect a stupid moron as your representative unless you are just as stupid and a moron.  
  • The Congressional attack on January 6th was a “ Love fest”  just “ Good Americans” exercising their right to free speech.  We need to get serious about rhetoric vs free speech and we need to go back to consequence for your actions.  In ancient Britain,  lies like they tell would result in their tongues being removed…  immoral acts would have resulted in removal of genitals  ( Matt Gaetz for example) In America T-RUMP gave out the Highest Medal Award two the two biggest liars in Congress.
  • Any other country in the world would see these people hanged by now. The only rights I see for these love fest sycophants would be a choice of rope,  either hemp or nylon.  Wire used by the Axis powers cuts too much.
