Pandemic scare-coverage reaches new heights, or depths, or something
DEATH Death death death
Relax comrades, the first 22 months of 14 days to flatten the curve are the toughest.
The end Nov 2019 my neighbor's 94 year old mother entered hospice care in Boston. with inoperable cancer. She was suffering from dementia and had resided in a nursing home for 2 years. She passed away in early April 2020. When her death certificate arrived in July 2020, her cause of death was listed as Covid. No mention of cancer or old age.
It would take an army of interns and boatloads of money, but every death certificate issued the past two years along with corresponding recent medical records should be examined. Names could be replaced with numbers to protect privacy. We will never understand what.has transpired in this country, until we have numbers uninfluenced by politics or billing codes.
Here in NYC the Karens and the Masktards were thrilled with the fear porn Omicron. Masks were back on, furtive eyes on people outside without a mask ... they're not angry that they might get sick, or you might get sick, they're angry that you won't OBEY like they do.
24 hour new networks have done more damage to mankind than Covid will ever do.
For what it's worth, COVID-related hospital admissions have downtrended from ~1600 to ~1100 from Dec 1 to Dec 29 in our metro area per our internal data.
Omicron certainly seems more transmissible but likely (I hope, anyway) this reflects evolutionary pressure on virus to select for strains that propagate efficiently. Killing your host does not facilitate efficient propagation. I am hopeful that this means COVID continue to abate in clinical severity and we finally can get a break from this come Spring/Summer.
Turn off all tv news.
Its funny, I havent watched any news on TV in ages and only passingly see it when I go over to check on my aged mom who has it on for the better part of the day. 30-40 seconds is enough to see, "holy shit, this is nuts!" and by nuts, I mean the coverage of Covid (or anything for that matter). Having the luxury to choose long form print journalism as well as podcasts makes me feel like a bit of an alien in my own world.
Don't forget Bidens scare statement "this will be the winter of illness and death for the unvaccinated....". Now if that's not vaccine propoganda I don't know what is
Eight African countries were banned from entering the US, in keeping with the panic mode. Nobody bothered to notice that Nigeria has almost no covid at all. Most Nigerians are on antimalarials like Hydroxycloroquin or Ivermectin. These can be purchased in any drug store in Nigeria for about a dollar.
We have reached Jump the Shark stage with Covid. CDC, Fauci, WHO etc have flip flopped more in the last few days than a freshly caught mackerel on amphetamines. The Big Lie perpetrated in early 2020 was that there are no methods to treat early Covid outpatient cases. Now that the Pfizer and Merck pills are out and approved the admission that Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, and Glaxo's monoclonal antibodies (and many others) could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives in the US as they have in the millions worldwide. But we didn't "have good studies". Big Pharma scores hundreds of billions as our Big Pharma backed politicians line their pockets with Big Pharma lucre.
Spectre. They should call the next one Spectre.
Matt, you will surely be pilloried by your journo colleagues for failing to mention that Omnicron is regularly crossing state lines. Millions of advertising dollars are at stake here, better get working on that update. Also, hope you and yours can have a happy New Year.
Israel has its 1st documented case of flurona. A combo of flu & the 'Rona."
This opens up a whole new range of disease vectors that can be vegetated...I mean vaccinated against.
We could have dandruffarona & ingrowntoenailarona & hemorrhoidarona & cancerarona & limpjohnsonarona & the tag team of heartdiseasearona & vaxcausedheartdiseasearona, etc. etc., et-effing-cetera.
Maybe we could trot out even more Pharma CEOs and make believe they're medical experts instead of extremely self interested salesmen and then ask their opinion as if the phrase "conflict of interest" was never invented.
Personally, I'm hoping for the release of a 30 day self vaccination kit where exuberant paranoiacs can re-up their booster regimen on a daily basis thus making them the superdupersuperduper immune that will boost their immune systems to such undreamt of health heights that they will effectively be immortal.
Since Trudeau said that the unvaccinated are both racists & misogynists that pretty much narrows down the target of our approved hatred to white incels. Off to the camps with the little bastards. Can't get laid, don't deserve to live is what I've always said. And any pesky black folk who are vaccine hesitant are obviously just the black face of white incel mischief and should be banned from the reparation check handout & forced to listen to Blake Shelton until their ears bleed & they repent their errant unvaccinated ways.
By the way, if you ever need to explain your vaccine suspicions to any Branch Covidians in your area this video does a very good job of calmly explaining it all.
Just expect shrieking hysteria. For me the shrieking hysteria is the only reason why I've shared this video with others. Shrieking liberal hysteria is very entertaining. For others though, the sight of a typical 21st century liberal trying to reconcile his/her desire to kill you with their lifelong passive aggressive passivity is just too much to bear. I understand. Won't judge ya at all.
And Australia is still building Covid camps for a virus that has pretty much stopped killing people🙈
The flailing managerial cast trying to prevent us unifying along class lines. We're discussing Omicron so that we don't discuss M4A, labor, climate change, etc.
These parasites are such a nefarious paralytic probably because they're scared of guillotines.
