“We made our choices. People are hospitalized and in ventilators because of those choices. People will die of COVID because of their own choosing. No one’s to blame. No more scapegoat. We should treat COVID like any other disease, no more special treatment. Everyone suffering from any life threatening health condition deserves an equal fighting chance to live by giving back their hospital beds taken away by COVID patients. A year ago, many were in excruciating pain and struggled with their health because we focused on one disease. That shouldn’t be the case anymore. Everyone deserves equal medical attention and just treatment. All life should be just as important.”
99% of the U.S. COVID hospitalized are unvaccinated. Many are active healthy young and middle age adults in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s who once thought they were invulnerable.
Hospitalized sicker, their Emergency Room to Ventilator Time is sooner. Their hospital stay and rehab are longer, greatly impacting work, finances and quality of life.
Been seeing Breakthrough cases among the fully vaccinated.
“Think not what the country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” People who kept saying they are Patriotic forgot what Patriotism is. It’s being selfless. So now, the Government has to intervene because voluntary vaccination that could end this pandemic failed. Just get vaccinated. It works and people who got the vaccine are still alive aren’t they? I’m still alive. I don’t have blood clot complications people are so afraid of due to misinformation. I’m freer than I’d ever been because if I do get COVID, I will not be hospitalized or die or end up disable. I can even choose not to wear mask but I have to be selfless so I still wear one for the unvaccinated in case I’m an infectious asymptomatic.
COVID infected are mingling with the Public denying their symptoms as COVID because they are vaccinated.
Symptomatic or exposed, many are choosing not to be tested for confirmation. Either it’s inconvenient or people genuinely believe they will no longer get COVID after vaccination.
The vaccine is never a cure. Anyone can get sick and be infectious after vaccination.
Flu in Summer far off Flu cold season is COVID. We confirmed this predictable phenomenon last Summer Surge and is a red flag every Summertime.
Some think their runny nose and nasal congestion are Pollen-related Seasonal allergy. It’s Summer drought in California. Plants are dried crisp. Hardly any blooms, hardly any pollens.
Others think it’s Sinus Infection. It’s possible to have Sinusitis plus COVID.
Flu and COVID has already been proven to exist in one person at the same time. The Mix and Match of diseases are astonishing.
Top 5 Delta Variant symptoms: Headache, Runny Nose, Sore Throat, cough and fever.
All 5 doesn’t have to be present for positivity. 1-2 will suffice.
Confusion, misinformation and plain “I don’t care attitude,” are driving the new COVID surges. And this is just the beginning.
The U.S. has more than doubled its daily average COVID cases as compared to 4 weeks ago.
What does this mean by late Fall to Winter? It means we will experience again overwhelmed healthcare systems in parts of the country with low vaccinations. Hospitals will be begging for license staff to take care of overflowing patients.
Where to find extra Nurses, Doctors and Respiratory Therapists willing to get sick or die for their profession after more than a year of being overworked frustrated with unresolved, continuous PTSD?
Tomorrow’s COVID Health Crisis is about not having enough trained Manpower to operate the ventilator machines and take care of the sick and the critical.
Heroes are free and entitled to give up if they want to, just like everyone else. They can choose to shift careers or pursue different fields where they feel safe, protected and valued.
For most, money was never their reason for staying this long but love for what they do and caring for people.
Reaching daily average deaths of 1,000/day is likely to happen soon. At our darkest, it was 4,000/day. Will this repeat? So far, nothing has been impossible with COVID.
As of 7/23/21, John Hopkins University Data shows that the U.S. at 610,218 still has the highest Global COVID Death numbers followed by India at 419,470.
Roughly, 166 Million Americans are still vulnerable to contracting COVID with serious complications.
No one knows who will be asymptomatic, have mild symptoms, head to ICU or to their grave.
Being young does not make a person invincible anymore.
We can fight for our Freedom or we can fight for our Life.
What I don’t understand is why people seems more interested of what’s happening to other countries than their own, or how they are more concerned of what’s trending in Tik-Tok than the rise of the Delta Strain and COVID Hospitalizations in their community.
What’s happening in India is tragic, but what’s happening in the U.S. is also tragic.
One life lost will always be tragic. One person not being able to resume their normal day to day activities or fend for themselves will always be tragic.
We are very lucky it is not us… yet.
Everyone’s DNA is unique and we will never know what’s our outcome to COVID until we get infected.
It is insensitive to undermine someone’s possible tragedy but people say and do them anyway. Makes me angry but I’m suppose to just smile, be nice and take it. So I do. Being Fake is the new normal too.
How about the unvaccinated kids going back to school? How risky would it be for our children getting COVID with serious outcomes?
Final Answer: Risky, because it is the virus nature to continually mutate to be more virulent and more pathogenic. The vaccine is simply slowing what is inevitable.
Should we be concerned? We should if it’s important. Should we be afraid? Only if it applies to us.
Children below 12 years old who are not vaccinated have less mature organs than adults. Some children have underlying health conditions that makes them immunocompromised.
With some schools pushing for “No Mask” Rule, adults will be accountable for the next wave of death and sickness because of the decisions they made. Adults who are suppose to protect and keep our children safe.
States that have banned schools from mask mandates are Vermont, South Carolina, Iowa, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona and Utah.
Can we forgive ourselves if our children recover from COVID with a brain comparable to those who suffered from Dementia, Alzheimer’s or Stroke?
Can we sleep at night knowing we took away our children’s future and quality of life?
The COVID we are dealing now is NOT the same COVID we dealt with during the last surges. The new variants are deadlier, more debilitating.
The COVID we are facing now has evolve into a Super Mutant Variant, and it will continue to evolve because it is in its DNA and RNA, engineered or natural.
Summer’s Headline, “Pandemic of the Unvaccinated.”
Fall and Winter Headline, “Death of the Unvaccinated.”
Tragic? Very, because it’s literally reliving the loss and horrors all over again.
Tragic because it’s preventable and we have a way of eradicating the enemy yet we allow the virus to keep claiming lives.
2021 NEW NORMAL
We seat next to a patient with COVID in our doctor’s clinic or in hospitals.
We stand next to a COVID person in the grocery isle and cashier counter.
We breathe the same poorly ventilated air space with a COVID person in a restaurant, bar, gym, stores, school and our own workplace.
We share the same ride, land, air or sea, with a COVID Passenger or Tourist, just different destinations and outcomes.
No more COVID contact tracing. COVID is too widespread that it became impractical and expensive.
No one will warn us that we were in contact with a COVID positive person.
No one will tell us that we already spread the virus Home.
Now, back to something fun and amazing.
