Delta Variant COVID Surge, Horror or Comedy show?
Depends which part of the World we live. Depends on our perception of Truth, Science and Reality.
If we live in New Zealand, 1 new Delta Variant COVID case is perceived as horror resulting to 3 weeks of country lockdown and people will stay home with one unified goal, make their country COVID free.
If we live in the U.S., 7-Day average of 145,000 soaring new daily cases with rising Hospitalizations and Death, life goes on with about half of the population following safety mandates.
The other half will not do anything or attempt to stop the interventions to beat the Delta Variant driven COVID multiple outbreaks. Horror Show.
Many are choosing Politics, Freedom and Pursuit to Happiness as more important than Public Safety and Saving Human Lives. Horror Show.
In New Zealand, Leaders come together to save its citizens.
In the U.S, Leaders fight and many of their Governors will place their citizens in hospitals and morgues, children included. Politics first. Politics second and third. People last. Horror Show.
In other countries, 1 COVID Death is unacceptable. In the U.S., people dying everyday from COVID has been accepted us normal. That’s 19 months of people dead from COVID everyday.
U.S. Average 7-Day Death from COVID is now 975/Day. It’ll surpass 1,000/Day next week. Horror Show.
Yesterday, we lost more than 1,000 Americans from COVID.
This is very tragic. This is very heartbreaking. People didn’t have to die. New deaths doesn’t have to happen.
Why people are dying and hospitals overwhelmed?
“COVID Season” says, Florida Gov. deSantis. If this is the case, Death and Hospitalization Surges from COVID will have 4 expected major Seasons, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. Each season will have its peak. Two seasons can overlap. Horror Show.
So, it’s okay now for people to die and or have lingering complications from COVID because it’s in Season? When was this even considered acceptable? Horror Show.
More and more U.S. States have ZERO Pediatric and or Adult I.C.U. staffed Beds. Alabama Wednesday, NO I.C.U. beds for all ages and all critical medical conditions like Heart Attack, Stroke, Sepsis, Vehicular Trauma and struggling to breathe, COVID patients. Horror Show.
Alabama has No EMS or Ambulance to answer 911 calls. Critical patients in hospital hallways. Patients being refused or diverted elsewhere for life saving medical care.
Alabama expects Summer’s COVID Surge peak in Mid-September 5,000 hospitalized patients. Wednesday, the State was already overwhelmed with 2,743 hospitalized patients. Healthcare System and Hospital Staff preparing for Apocalyptic Hospital scenarios. The State is in a Disaster Mode. Horror Show.
Horror, horror, horror because this is NOT an End of the World movie. These are live ongoing series of preventable tragic events, with real people fighting for their lives.
I was told to take off my mask a month ago and now its “Wear Mask” indefinitely? If it means I get to save both the lives of those around me and mine, then I will.
In others countries, mask will be worn automatically as soon as they are warned, “New, more virulent, deadlier variant on the loose.”
Many U.S. States Governors empowered Parents to decide and be responsible whether their unvaccinated child will wear a mask for their child’s safety and the safety of other unvaccinated children. Problem is, there are two factions of Parents, the Pro-Mask and the Anti-Mask.
All their vulnerable children becomes collateral damage to a battle everyone will just loose. As to who will be accountable? Should be the Governors first because they made the announcement and threaten school districts choosing to follow CDC safety mandates. Parents, second. Horror Show.
As a Parent, even if my child is vaccinated, I worry when my child leaves home for school. Will he keep his mask? Will he be around kids wearing mask?
I can only hope and pray he is safe as he begins his first week of schooling. California Education System and Governor Newsom are Pro-Mask. Some relief to parents with immunocompromised and unvaccinated kids.
In California, Gov. Newsom being considered a Hero by many in this Pandemic fight is being recalled for being Anti-COVID and for being the only Governor to mandate mask in schools to keep Students, Staff and Teachers safe. The goal is to replace him with a Pro-COVID Politician. Horror Show if he gets replaced. Lost Hope for all Californians if we join the ranks of Texas and Florida in COVID status and management. California will have a very dark Winter if the Anti-Mask, Anti-Vaccine, “I don’t care about COVID” opponent wins.
Few countries will end the Pandemic. Many including the U.S. will have it as Endemic which means they will have COVID like Flu and RSV…forever. A child below 5 can possibly have 2-3 of these at the same time. Horror Show.
A lifetime warranty of on and off COVID Plateau and Surges. One guaranteed Super Mutation once a year that may outpace current vaccines. Horror Show.
The world is about 24% COVID fully vaccinated. The U.S., 52% fully vaccinated. Poor Countries will wonder when will they ever be vaccinated, Rich Countries gets their 8th month third booster dose. Inequality of vaccines will lead to super mutations that will continue to kill more people around the World. Horror Show.
So, Horror or Comedy Show?
In my opinion? It’s ALL Horror Show.
Nothing funny gambling people’s lives and jobs. Constant chaos, suffering, frustrations, stress and anger are NEVER a laughing matter when we are part of the Reality Show.
Nothing entertaining of having to wake up each day and repeat the same Horror Movie, our Horror movie.
For those who enjoy Reality Shows, these year has many of the best and the worst. So glued to the news, Netflix is losing some of its subscribers and Widescreen movies will never recover.
4 months to go before 2021 ends. Bigger, more explosive Blockbusters to come. Or is it, Covidbusters? Don’t know, I’m so confused and conflicted nowadays.
One thing for sure, never a boring day in my side of the World.
For those still undecided to get the COVID vaccine, please do get vaccinated quickly. I know it works. I know it’s safe. I know it will save your life and those you love because it saved mine and those I love so many times.
The longer we delay vaccination, the higher the chances of getting the Delta Variant. What happens when Lambda where all vaccines don’t work replaces Delta? More Horror Show.
We are our Brothers and Sisters Keeper. If we still value God’s words of Love, then we do everything we can to keep everyone safe, that includes our Families, Friends, our Community.
People may still refuse despite of everything we do or say, but others may change their minds to do what’s right.
We have to try everything we can to protect and prolong God’s gift of Life, our Life because it was created with a higher calling and purpose.
No more anger. No more hate. No more blame. No more endangering others. Forgiveness and support one another. We give Hope a try for as long as it takes. We give each other the chance to live until this War is really over.
“If it saves one life, 10 hospitalizations, isn’t that the least we could do?” – Lynn Gray on keeping All Students, Teachers, Staff and Parents in her School District Safe from Delta Variant COVID
