Wow. That's one in a hundred. Right now. Today. That means you likely know someone who is sick. Preventable... smh

How many cases of influenza today? How many total deaths today? How many of the 78 COVID patients are hospitalized? How many of the hospitalizations are from obese patients? What is the percentage of deaths above the life expectancy? These raw numbers are pretty useless without context...

What is the percentage of deaths above the life expectancy? Really?? So these folks have died but hey, they beat the odds. They lived longer than they should. Their families should just be grateful they lived that long!! "Grandma's dead kids. But it's ok. Don't cry. jill from the News Record comment section pointed out that she lived past her life expectancy. Cowboy up now!"

So jill you think if people are obese or have an underlying condition and get Covid because YOU refuse to get vaccinated or wear a mask it's no big deal. I happen to personally know three people who have recently died of Covid, they should be alive today. Flu season has not really started yet that's why cases have not been reported.

jill

I'm forced to subsidize their health insurance, why shouldn't they take one for the team?

So Ka12, you’re suggesting that we should be vaccinated and wear masks to prevent others from getting Covid?? If vaccines and masks are effective, that should be the protocol for those in fear, and don’t demand that the rest of us take your vaccine and mask up. Stop trying to control us.

Ka12

No gardener that's not what I'm suggesting. I would like to have a hospital bed and staff available to treat me in case I get a breakthrough infection, or a heart attack, or a car accident. Since some of you refuse to get vaccinated or wear a mask you are taking up all the ICU beds.
