    Iíve heard many times some version ofÖĒitís suddenly got real for usĒ when one or several family members are seriously ill or dying from this.

    Too many people living in misinformation and disinformation bubbles.

    Americans have been dying from COVID for almost 18 months. Vaccines have been widely available for 3 months. Itís been real and thereís a real way to fix this. Just willful ignorance and the politicians who feed it with this ďdo your own researchĒ nonsense. Itís a death cult.

    ďAnd now all you really see is their fear and their regret. And even though I may walk into the room thinking, ĎOkay, this is your fault, you did this to yourself,í when I leave the room, I just see a person thatís really suffering, and that is so regretful for the choice that they made.Ē

    Cobia said that the strain wears on healthcare workers after the trauma of 2020 and 2021.

    ďItís really hard because all of us physicians and other medical staff, weíve been doing this for a long time and all of us are very, at this point, tired and emotionally drained and cynical,Ē she said.

    Shame there will be no consequences for those that spread disinformation and lies.

As I'm not a lawyer I have no idea if they actually have a legit case, but sooner or later someone was going to sue them, imo.

    Looks like about 49% of Americans have been fully vaccinated at this point. What % of Americans have not been vaccinated and were infected at some point? Are we talking 10%? 20%? After we come out the side of this phase, should we be at a pretty high % of Americans with either 2 doses of vax or had prior infection? Like 75%-80%?

    Even at the current 60,000 cases a day, you run that for 3 months and it's just another 2% of the population. So we'll need a much bigger wave to start getting herd immunity. Case numbers have dropped for at least 2 days in LA, consistent with just a mini wave for 4th of July. Then we'll likely have another after memorial day, then another on Thanksgiving, etc. The % of adults vaccinated is in the 60% range , I believe. I don't think half of that remaining population has been infected, maybe 20-30%.

    Iíd guess that nationally, cases + fully vaccinated probably equals around 58-60% of the population.

    Is there any data yet on the percentage of asymptomatic cases for the Delta variant - particularly among fully vaccinated persons who experience breakthrough infections?

    He worked for his grandfather from 1994 to 2002 doing advance work before his large-scale crusades, according to an interview with The Winston-Salem Journal. In addition to his ministry work, he also managed a Chick-fil-A in Clemmons, The Winston-Salem Journal reported in 2018. Lotz lived in Mocksville, the Journal said at the time.

    I mean, PNC only holds 19,500 people. But this is Covid related so might as well more than double all stats. Luke Bryan was there the night before, so maybe if you add the two together and pretend they happened at the same time the Covid reporting will be accurate.

    When I used to go to phish show back in the late 90's there were frequently twice as many people tailgating in the parking lot and trying to buy ticket than were actually in the show.

    I'm sure this will end well - as the article title says "As Coronavirus Surges, GOP lawmakers are moving to limit public health powers."
