GOP Utah Gov. Spencer Cox said he's fed up with people who can get vaccinated but choose not to. So to help protect kids too young for Covid-19 shots, he said he has 'instructed our teams to provide a KN95 mask for every child that wants one in the state'

The surge of Covid-19 fueled by the Delta variant and low vaccination rates is sending the country backward in the pandemic, with hospitalizations reaching wintertime levels.

For the first time since February 27, more than 50,000 Covid-19 patients were hospitalized Monday, according to data from the US Department of Health and Human Services.The 50,625 hospitalizations were more than triple the number from one month ago, when about 16,000 patients were hospitalized.At this point, it might not be possible to reach herd immunity, the director of the National Institutes of Health said. At the current pace of vaccinations, it will take until mid-February to reach all of the remaining eligible people with at least one dose, a CNN analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data found.

I have zero sympathy for unvaccinated adults. I , an adult could barely breath on a kN95 mask & expecting children to wear this in school ! What a horror ! What is the Biden admin doing about this!!! When trump was president every time the numbers went up it was all his fault.. I haven’t heard anyone ask Biden how he plans to fix this!!! Horrible president .. he’s like a house with the lights on but nobody home

Can’t make it up. ChrisCuomo opens his show tonight by talking about vaccine hesitancy. Cuomo’s brother, the embattled NY governor, literally said “I don’t trust the FDA” and “I’m not gonna trust the federal governments opinion” on the vaccine. Yeah but there are significant less deaths.. that's the thing we care about, not positive cases or hospitalization

Do people not understand numbers? I just don’t get it. If you’re under 15, your chances of dying from the flu are 1 in 155,000. Your chances of dying from COVID are 1 in 1.2 million. Shouldn’t this end the discussion? VAERS

Nursing home advocates shift stance on mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for staffAs the delta variant continues to drive the latest coronavirus surge, many long-term care providers and advocates are calling for mandatory vaccinations for staff members—a stark change in tone from earlier in the pandemic.

Pfizer, Moderna Raise Prices Of Covid-19 Coronavirus Vaccines For European UnionThe EU has now surpassed the U.S. in getting its population vaccinated. But will higher Covid-19 coronavirus vaccine prices derail this progress? Why? It clearly doesn’t protect people from contracting it again. Is that is in the EU, Latinoamerica... ☠️ The mutations will keep coming that benefit Big Pharma and politicians and the sheep will line up over and over for boosters.

Who Can Mandate Covid-19 Vaccination?As the Delta variant complicates return to “normal,” universities, employers and municipal governments take the “soft mandate” route—get vaccinated or face the consequences. Yes they can but has it really gotten to that Cosss

Delta Variant Arrives in Wuhan After More Than a Year With No Covid-19Wuhan, the city where Covid-19 was first detected, reported new infections for the first time in more than a year, prompting authorities there to launch mass testing China information is never TRUSTWORTHY. New infections for the first time in more than a year? Did they have a pandemic or was just the rest of the world ? I think we should be mass testing here.

How to Ask Someone if They’ve Been Vaccinated for Covid-19'Are you vaccinated?' The question can damage personal and professional relationships if not handled carefully. Here’s how to ask at work, with friends and with family. Hot tip: DON’T. It doesn’t f**king matter and it’s none of your business. No. You don't ask. It is none of your business. Jesus help me🤦‍♂️
