At first glance, one that doesn't include the incredible suffering and terrible sense of loss; It might seem like some kind of poetic justice, but a second look reveals no justice at all. We are in the middle of an anti-VAX-er plague. Death rates are climbing, hospitalizations going once more through the roof. Doctors and Nurses, hospital workers of every strip once more driven into exhaustion. Many felt we could relax with the Elderly vaccinated, only to have Covid turn to attack our children. Delta is hunting the UN-vaccinated down in alarming numbers. Delta is killing the unvacc. faster than ever. As near as I can pin it down, here's why. One stupid person told another stupid person That the vaccine might be dangerous. I say stupid because this has long been know to be rubbish. The vaccine we have is readily available and has already saved at lest a half million lives in the USA alone. But rather than face a one in a million chance of vaccine harm, there may be 15 deaths ascribed to vaccine, they choose to join the 600,000 dead of covid. Here's what goes way beyond strange. This has become political. It seems that now in order to be a good republican you must to your best to persuade other republicans Not to vaccinate. But rather to choose a death even a rat would run away from. As dead Republicans tend not to vote, they are killing off their own base. "A good Republican chooses to die before they can vote." As this appears to leave Dems a rather large opening. While I hate to see unnecessary suffering and death the immediate result is fewer Republicans. But their is a secondary effect that might well overwhelm all mankind. Republicans are keeping Delta around and the longer it persists the more certain a new strain becomes. Delta is already showing us a few "Breakthrough" infections of people already vaccinated. at this point one much recognize how dangerous the un-vaccinated are to us. Delta is already showing a preference for the young. Way back when Covid was new I posted the opinion, (only my opinion) that we should self quarantine until we know if we need to quarantine. I did not except to be giving the same advice at this point in time, with a vaccine widely available and widely taken. But feel I must. "long haul" Covid is turning into a nightmare! Even folks that got covid but did not get seriously ill are now being dragged down with brain decay, lung and heart deterioration. Life long illness and eventual death.There is no good or easy Covid. So between new strains and Long Haul I see the risks as being to great to set aside PPE even for those of us who are vaccinated. I ask my friends to suck it up for what may be a year or more. Maintain your distance, wash hands continuously and wear the best PPE you can afford. Covid has already started to break though our vax barriers.It's a trickle and our vaxs are working! But don't be on the front lines when Covid finds it's way around our precautions. The only safe Covid is the covid you don't get.
