Today's the anniversary of Fauci keeping his job another year; we look at "Jan. 6 hysteria"; updates on testing policies; and more...
What continues to just utterly amaze me is that no matter how much the narrative collapses, many, many people still blindly follow the failed policies -- no matter how ridiculous said policies are -- no matter how failed the vaccine statistics -- many just blindly "accept" and go get their booster never, ever considering what the shot is going to do to them in the long run. AAAAACK!!! It is maddening! Thank you Jeff Childers for being the bright spot in my day, every day!
'excreted an announcement' killed me, death by laughter, not covid, though maybe covid related
It’s funny how we’re seeing “at this point in the pandemic” preceding retreat to a position reasonable people held 2 years ago.
“At this point in the pandemic, cloth masks are useless”. So what does that mean, the moronic variant has new properties that allow it to penetrate cloth masks? Or is it an admission that masks are, and always were, bullshit and “this point in the pandemic” is a convenient fig-leaf for retreat?
I often wonder, along the same lines of the “say her name”, Can any lib name the date of any of the hundreds of Antifa/BLM riots that occurred that took more lives & destroyed more property than Jan 6?
As they say, never let a crisis go to waste. Also, now that they'll stop counting cases we will see a downtick in cases, and "experts" will bake this into the historical record as proving that the vaccine campaign was highly effective. In 20 years, med/health students will read about how effective the COVID vaccines are because cases dropped after everyone got boosted. This is how public health has played with data for the last 100 years.
I live in Commifornia. My sil tested positive for the flu and corona simultaneously in late 2020. This is not a new thing. It is only another scare tactic. No treatment of course and she’s just fine.
Department of Justice? Now there's a misnomer for you.
The spin continues. This quote from our California “top doctor” is interesting and is to the point you are making.
“ On the other hand, Ghaly acknowledged that the state lacks critical data on just how severely the virus, especially the omicron variant, is affecting Californians. He noted that around 8,000 of the state’s approximately 51,000 hospital patients on Wednesday morning had tested positive for COVID. But, Ghaly said, it’s unclear how many of those patients were hospitalized because of COVID versus how many were admitted for different reasons and ended up incidentally having COVID.
Ghaly: “That distinction … is really important and helps us not only help manage the staffing challenges within some of the hospitals, but also project out the need for additional ICU capacity. … And as we see an increasing number of fully vaccinated individuals, boosted individuals, admitted to the hospital with incidental COVID … I think we’re starting to see a sort of different approach to that.””
When I look at the state data, which can be challenging to find, the latest breakthrough cases are 51% of the test positives. The breakthrough hospitalizations are 31%. Deaths around 30%.
A year ago when I was still working in the Department of Public Health I proposed we start classifying test positive cases by severity of illness: asymptomatic, mild, moderate and severe. That was poo pooed, the CDC wasn’t doing it. I think it was too scientific for them. It might have shown us something that we didn’t want to know and has been suppressed. It’s a big jump from cases to hospitalizations with a great deal of useful epidemiology info like waning severity of illness and vaccine in between.
Sigh….follow the science….thank you C and C.
Thank you, you made me laugh. It is always a good day when that happens.
I got the call yesterday. My religious exemption request has been denied by the military. I have 5 days to get a shot, accept forced retirement, or face punitive action as a "vaccine refuser". I'm hoping and praying for progress on these lawsuits.
The idiot in Chief is yelling at the camera about an insurrection or something. Purveyors of hysteria and fear porn at work.
I don't know why but Jeff, you just hit my funny bone somehow.
And finally I just loved, "excreted an announcement..."
A tip for getting good early treatment meds - contact your local compounding pharmacy (they make/provide ivermectin) and ask which providers are writing scripts for it. Make a tele- appointment with the provider and get needed meds ready for when covid comes to your household.
Then thank them all by referring others to them and giving them as much business as you can, including non-covid business.
Let’s go around the establishment that wants to destroy us and protect our at-risk friends and family!
Australia was very clear when they said there was no flu this winter. And that they have not had flu for two years, but let’s not take their word for it.
Then there is Michigan which has an extreme number of “cases”. The hospitals continue to post unvaccinated vs vaccinated no differentiation between those who are positive and those who have pending tests. Real helpful.
I would love to support Jeff and the C&C newsletter with a subscription, but $500/year is a little too much for me. If he had a $100/year tier I'd gladly sign up.
