Check out this “reporting” from CNBC:
Fauci declares delta variant ‘greatest threat’ to the nation’s efforts to eliminate Covid
Delta, first identified in India, now makes up about 20% of all new cases in the United States, up from 10% about two weeks ago, Fauci said.
2 weeks ago the 7 day average for daily new cases in the US was 15,992. Yesterday it was 11,502. So cases are falling, but we’re all supposed to be scared because a higher percentage is the dreaded Delta Variant.
He said delta appears to be “following the same pattern” as alpha, the variant first found in the U.K., with infections doubling in the U.S. about every two weeks.
Yeah and they tried to scare us with the “UK variant” (Alpha) back in April, but nothing ever came of it. But this time the Delta variant is super serious and we all need to shit our pants.
“Similar to the situation in the U.K., the delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the U.S. to our attempt to eliminate Covid-19,” he said.
What is this nonsense about “eliminating” Covid-19? When did that become the goal? The Spanish flu from 1918 is “still with us” according to WaPo. But we’re going to “eliminate” this much less deadly virus because Science.
Studies suggest it is around 60% more transmissible than alpha, which was more contagious than the original strain that emerged from Wuhan, China, in late 2019
What studies? Who conducted them and when?
Health officials say there are reports that the delta variant also causes more severe symptoms, but that more research is needed to confirm those conclusions.
What reports? From whom?
Without the massive propaganda campaign and ridiculous amount of testing going on, no one would even know COVID is still around. We need to move on as a society and stop obsessing over this one single virus. The sooner the hysterics realize Fauci is a shameless self promoter with an extreme bias toward vaccines over other methods of treatment, the sooner we can calm the fuck down and live normal lives again.
