You can thank Biden for that
Did you notice, whenever Trump says something absurd or takes crazy decisions, the whole media is bashing him, yet NOBODY is exposing or reporting Biden's hazardous, atrocious, dangerous decisions and actions as of late.........double standards ! Yeah I guess you heard Sir Biden, the pandemic is over, it never happened, you can all stop washing your hands, keep'em nice and filthy like before, no more wearing masks, no more distancing, you can party 24/7, you can all come out of COVID jail dear Americans, the virus is no more........ YOU SEE, Biden DID promise he would crush the virus during his campaign didn't he ? WELL, I guess then the whole world should thank him for ending the pandemic
Oh well, at least Americans know who to blame when COVID relapse strikes with a vengeance in the fall........Unfortunately in Canada, our PM being the muppet that he is, is following along the same footsteps, BUT, in a more organised way, in phases I guess, some provinces have laid out a plan over the next few months, conditional to people following sanitary measures for the remainder of the summer, so for once, Canada is taking somewhat better decisions there, BUT, unfortunately in these plans, complete removal of masks mandate are there, I don't think it is a good idea to remove masks mandate until at least a full season, just to see if the vaccines work long term and for the virus to settle to numbers low enough, these politicians are clearly capitalising their self-wroth - it looks better on their popularity if they give people what they want, even though it is a lousy decision putting an entire country at risk, especially with the variants out there, which can reduce vaccine efficacy by 3x-4x. and now most people won't wear masks- what do you think this means Valerie ? It means the very few that do will be the focus of attention - so you alone with a mask in a store, what were people thinking, look at this lady she must have the plague or something, she must be very sick
Why can't we be inspired by Asian countries ? Masks should become the new norm for a while - NOBODY can predict if this virus will be seasonal or come back - one thing for sure, just pretending as if nothing happened and declaring victory is irresponsible and DANGEROUS, shame on Biden - but there again, Trump would have lifted the restrictions sooner
BUT the only difference with Trump is that he would have been called out all over the media - everything slides with Biden, he can do as he pleases, print trillions of $, no problems, he can manage to get the GOP on his side where no other democrat could before, wow if I didn't know better I'd think Biden is the AntiChrist
It was very strange.
Indeed - next time wear a sign that says "I am not sick I don't have the plague, I'm just playing it safe" - have it printed on your clothes, front and back, and a sticky on the forehead
And in that town just yesterday, it stated in the newspaper 6 new
cases of people with covid.
and this is how the Kentucky variant (triple mutation) will be born
I don't get it. Are people really that stupid?
My theory is, it's guinea pig time.
Are you seriously asking this question ? The answer is clearly yes, when they voted for Biden thinking things would be better.
It's disappointing - Trump was known for downplaying the virus - in the beginning, Biden was known for taking the virus seriously - what happened ? Did Biden's team of experts sign off on this STUPIDITY ? Is Dr. Faucci, the grim reaper of medicine, on board with this ? It's like they lost their mind - I guess the midterms are coming, and the democrats want to secure their seats at all costs - what better way to get Republican support - because after all Biden's plan and decision regarding COVID19 might be the only thing in his political career where both parties agree..........
The reason Biden is taking these decisions is because he or his team is heavily relying on the vaccines !!!! Vaccines that NOBODY know their long term efficacy or side effects, vaccines that nobody really knows the TRUE efficacy against some variants other than assumptions and very limited sample studies.......... So it is one big gamble.
The answer will be in the fall - cases WILL go up, you can be sure of that - BUT......will hospitalisations and death go up proportionally ? If so, then this whole gamble was a failure, and yo u have to start the whole process over again...............BUT, if cases go up, but hospitalisations and deaths are at the same level as they are or lower, it means vaccines are working - in theory ALL vaccines have 100% efficacy against hospital and death - BUT no vaccine is 100% against the infection itself, which means COVID19 will still circulate, BUT in theory it should keep you safe from hospital and deaths- SO in the fall / winter if infections go up but hospital / deaths stay low, then the decision would have paid off - I guess they know the virus will never go away, like other viruses, but with community immunity, people can live with it. Problem is, how long do vaccines protect you ? Theory says up to 6 months, MAYBE more, it is that MAYBE part that concerns me.
Which is why it would have been more intelligent for Biden and his team to play it safe, just loosen a bit for the summer, but not remove all measures, and at least wait until the late fall season maybe winter, to see the progress on hospital / deaths - and decide then - I mean come on have they lost their mind ? it takes 75% for herd immunity, maybe 85% for variants - 2 days ago, 38.x % of Americans were vaccinated - that's far less than half, how the HELL is it possible to lift restrictions with such a low vaccination coverage !?!?!?!? Some provinces in Canada have more than 50% vaccination, and expect 75%+ by mid summer, which is essentially herd immunity, wow I cannot believe that Canada that was in 14th place in vaccination, might be at the top. Very disappointing, how can you take Biden or Faucci or any other "expert" seriously now ? One minute they predict doomsday and say that you need 75% rate to create herd immunity, next minute, they are signing off on lifting all measures, with only a 38% rate, this is crazy insane. Masks play the most important part in preventing spread of the virus, remove that, and remove distancing rules, and people act like pandemic is over, and if / when the shit hits the fan in the fall, I hope people will know who to blame this time - but it sucks for the rest of the suckers who took 2 painful jabs in the arm, because those vaccines will be good for nothing...................so what next, 2 more jabs of new vaccines, 6-8 more months of lockdown ?
Biden and Yellen should keep their pie traps shut - Those mid-terms cannot come soon enough, let's hope the GOP won't f*** up this time !
