Our Health Mob have gone into full hysteria overdrive.
They used to worry about the Fourth Wave. Apparently waves are too benign so now we are facing a “Delta Variant Surge“.
There are going to be nearly as many deaths as the number who died in the Civil War! I haven’t a clue how those compare or what one has to do with the other. I presume we are to read this with open eyed horror in case there’s another war?
So cases are “roaring”? Again, I can assume they don’t mean this literally. I would imagine that most cases are fairly silent about it apart maybe from the occasional sneeze?
He said the infection rate for 16 to 18-year-olds is the same as it was at the peak of the October wave of the virus “and the line is vertical on the page” and the same for the 19-24-year-old group.
Ah here now. He is surrounded by all those mathematicians who are predicting the demise of our population so surely one of them could tell him that a vertical line on a graph would mean we have hit an infinite number of cases. Are things really that bad?
The one little snippet he hasn’t managed to disguise is that the majority of cases are in the 16 – 24 age group. So what? They’ll get over it. Maybe some of them will have long term effects but that’s no cause for panic? I’ve had “long term effects” for years and while unpleasant they are hardly confining me to an isolation ward.
The sun is shining over Ireland [quite a rarity in summer] and I’m delighted to see that people in general are starting to ignore the panicked proclamations. Doubtless the beaches will be packed today and the biggest “surge” is going to be in sunburn cases. Certainly I shall be avoiding
New York the village as it will be crowded. Social distancing my arse.
The only clouds are the doom merchants
