So as you’re probably aware, the new and improved bivalent vaccine that would definitely protect you against the evils of the evil Omicron BA.5 variant which would certainly kill you because…it’s evil, came out just three and a half months ago. Hallelujah! Now we can all get our fifth shot in a year and a half and go back to normal life…finally.
Except now (my bold) “The most immune-evasive omicron subvariants yet are now causing more than 70% of new infections in the U.S…The BQ.1 and BQ.1.1 subvariants taken together are now responsible for 68% of new cases…The XBB subvariant is causing 4.7% of new Covid infections…Scientists…have described the BQ and XBB subvariants as more adept at evading immunity from vaccination and infection than prior versions of the virus…The omicron boosters also trigger a weaker immune response against the BQ and XBB subvariants than they do to the previously dominant version of the virus…The shots were designed against the BA.5 subvariant, which is now causing just 11% of infections in the U.S.”
So BA.5 is on its way out and there’s another new sheriff in town. What a surprise. Time for yet another new bivalent (or trivalent) booster. Get in line now. By the way, if you’re wondering how this virus keeps mutating to evade our immune systems, take a look in the mirror (if you’re vaxxed). Didn’t you ever wonder how each succeeding variant can (or would bother to) become “more immune-evasive” than the last variant or become the “most immune-evasive omicron subvariants yet”?
Not sure how much you true-believers need to see before you realize the giant scam you’re participating in. Not sure when you “expert”-followers will stop with the stupid mask nonsense either. But hey, as long as you’ve stopped trying to force others into your world of fear, ignorance, and crazy, you do you. Except, for the love of all that’s holy, leave the children alone. Please don’t make your kids into any more of a fearful, neurotic, anxiety-consumed mess than they already are. That ain’t right.
But WAIT! We’re also told “Covid infections and hospitalizations are rising after the Thanksgiving holiday. Cases increased nearly 50% to about 459,000 for the week ended Dec. 7, compared to 307,000 the week prior, according to CDC data…Hospitalizations of people with Covid have increased about 14% week over week to more than 4,800 admissions per day on average, according to CDC data. More than 50% of those hospitalized are ages 70 and older.”
So you’re telling me that as we come into winter, respiratory viral infections are on the rise? EGAD! This is the same exact PANIC PORN we suffered through for the past two winters. Please note that “More than 50% of those hospitalized are ages 70 and older” That means if you’re under the age of 70, your chances of ending up in the hospital on any given day due to COVID (of course we know that at least half the people in the hospital are there “with” COVID, not due to COVID) is about 0.0008% or eight ten-thousandths of one percent. That’s ZERO to any sane person. So there’s that. But here are some graphics to ease your hysteria:
You will please notice how low cases are now compared to either of the last two winters (which we somehow managed to survive). They’re almost lower than they’ve ever been. Below is a closeup of case counts over the last three or four months:
Doesn’t look PANIC PORNY to me, but whatever. But we’re told “This is an undercount because the official data does not include the results of people who test at home.” This is true, but who cares? I guess we’re supposed to be even more afraid because the numbers are really much worse than we think! And here’s an even closer look which exposes a little sleight-of-hand trickery by our friends in the mainstream media:
Remember above we were told “Cases increased nearly 50% to about 459,000 for the week ended Dec. 7, compared to 307,000 the week prior, according to CDC data”? Holy cow, this IS serious! But now look at the bottom of that almost completely vertical segment of the graph. That’s November 30, the last day of the “week before”. Then we had that jump in cases - from 286,000 on 11/30 to 388,000 on 12/1. That’s about a 35% increase in one day - that’s an artifact from a lack of testing and reporting over the Thanksgiving holiday. From the 388,000 cases on 12/1 to the 455,00 cases on 12/7, that’s an increase of less than 20% for the actual week ending December 7. In plain English, you’re being LIED TO about a nearly 50% increase in cases in one week. Who’da thunk it?
Here’s the fatality graph; what anybody should really be concerned about if you’re going to be concerned at all:
Once again you will notice the lowest death rate pretty much ever. Have deaths increased a bit in recent days? Yes, just like in any other winter.
At some point we as a civilization (if you can call what this has become a civilization) are going to have to come to terms with the fact that this coronavirus is here to stay. COVID WILL NEVER STOP. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. NOBODY IS COMING TO SAVE YOU. And we may be just beginning to reap the whirlwind of this grand vaccine experiment.
As I have implored many times over these last three years, it’s time to start getting healthier. Stop eating garbage, start exercising, sleeping right, moderating your stresses, getting outside, improving your relationships and social circle; do whatever you can to get healthier. It’s your life, start acting like it. And please, stop living in fear.
