    Re: Latest on the Corona Virus

    new generation of Covid-19 treatments will soon be available, and they matter more than many people realize.

    They have the potential to substantially reduce hospitalization and death. And they are likely to be effective against the Omicron variant, many scientists believe, even if Omicron makes the Covid vaccines weaker at preventing infections. As Dr. Monica Gandhi of the University of California, San Francisco, told me, the treatments are ďa huge deal.Ē

    In the simplest terms, they can help turn Covid into a more ordinary respiratory disease, similar to the common cold or flu, rather than one thatís killing about 1,000 Americans a day and dominating daily life for millions.

    Two treatments are on the way ó one from Pfizer and one from Merck ó and they will have both medical and psychological benefits. Not only can they reduce serious Covid illness, but they can also reduce Covid fears and help society move back to normalcy, lessening the pandemicís huge social and economic side effects.

    I cannot speak for the US media since I don't live there, but judging by your posts in this thread it's fairly similar = fearmongering, with stories like vaccines might not work against the new variant and other "mights" so long as it's pessimistic. So long as the media carries on like this, some people may have covid fears for the foreseeable future.
    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.

    I'm so thankful that I don't live in a liberal controlled state. Or worse yet, Canada. I like my freedom too much.
    Embrace the process, not the outcome.

    I dont know if it is true or not but I read a article that said no one in the world has died from this new variant.

    ... this appears to be true although symptoms and treatment can be very unpleasant. Intense global medical analysis is underway.

    ... meanwhile the COVID-19D variant infects 100,000 people per day and kills 1,000 more everyday, day after day in the USA. Grade school, young, middle age, older & healthy people are all at risk.

    ... 2.2M US citizens rushed to get either their first vaccine shot or their booster shots yesterday. The highest since April 2021.

    On the campaign trail last year, Joe Biden promised that if elected president, he would get COVID-19 under control. Since assuming office in January, he has continued to pledge that his administration allow life to return to some semblance of normal.




    When does it start?



    5 states have now reported confirmed cases of the omicron variant



    At least nine cases of the omicron variant have now been identified in five states across the U.S.


    On Thursday, health officials in Colorado, Hawaii, Minnesota and New York all reported new cases of the highly mutated strain of the coronavirus, one day after the first domestic case of the variant was discovered in California.


    Hawaii became the fifth state in the nation to report a case of the variant, shortly after officials in New York announced that they had identified five confirmed cases in the state.


    According to Hawaii health officials, the individual is a resident from O'ahu with moderate symptoms. They had previously been infected with COVID-19 and was reported to have been unvaccinated.


    The individual is currently isolated at home and has not been hospitalized, State Epidemiologist Dr. Sarah Kemble said. The individual did not have any history of traveling.


    "This isn't reason for panic, but it is reason for concern. It's a reminder the pandemic is ongoing. We need to protect ourselves by getting vaccinated, wearing masks, distancing as best we can and avoiding large crowds," said Health Director Dr. Elizabeth Char in a release.

    Embrace the process, not the outcome.

    Are you trying to convince people that Rep states are the only places in the world that have freedom?? Super idiotic Willy

    There are MANY countries in the world that have freedom. Stop thinking you are somehow special.

    Your definition of freedom is vastly different from mine.

    I dream of a world where a comedian can tell an offensive joke without being fined. I dream of a world where I'm not forced to wear a mask. Live free or die!!!


    PS - Every time that you promise to slap me down, I think you're about to say something witty or clever but you always let me down.

    ... as it should be. This highly paid player actually tried to pass a fake vaccine immunization record card.

    The NFL simply cannot take the liability risk with 1,000's of players in close contact, sweating and hitting each other, interacting with the public.

    Multiple lawsuits just waiting to happen.
