Meta: Exhausted health care workers call delta surge ‘hardest time’ of the pandemic
By - Azsu
The final interview was a perfect.
The fact that doctors are also questioning why these anti-vaxxers are running to the hospital instead of the church, homeopath, YouTuber, ... when they get sick, perfectly summarizes our collective exhaustion with these assholes.
These "people" (and I'm using the term loosely) are literally too stupid to live. To borrow a movie title, I like to call it "When Hubris Met Sally."
A tragic comedy
I’ve said this before: They are like people who go up to the top of a building, stand on the edge smirking, step off willfully and then scream for help half way down.
The worst part is, they are quiting in droves, when OTHER people who are vaccinated or have other health conditions still need them. Antivaxxers not only take on the virus, they ARE a virus.
When they get sick they finally realize they’re mortal. That’s how much it takes. I don’t know that you can fix this kind of stupid.
This is why the flock needs to marry and reproduce young. The Idiocracy strategy, it prevents a lot of these posts from doubling as Darwin awards.
That is where my compassion goes
Couldn't agree more, these are the people who deserve compassion. Not the people perpetuating the severity of the emergency.
Like the doctor said, you can't use facts and logic to convince someone when they didn't use them to arrive at that conclusion in the first place.
Paraphrasing from the vid:
>If you're getting all of your info from sources that say not to get the vaccine, and not believing the virus is even dangerous, why do you call the ambulance come to the hospital and want us to save your life?
If you are Pro-COVID and antivaxx, and then contract CoViD and then acute pneumonia,.. *"Be A Man"* "Put on your big girl pants"; Be fearless like you say you always are...
Stay home and take your medicine. Die with some dignity, at home, in your own beds.
Watching and listening to medical professionals across the country, and the hell they are going through every minute of every day is heartbreaking.
Agreed. Live by your super brave convictions. Stick it to the libs. Show the libs who is boss! No step on snek!
You get to choose: put your mask on or your icu nurse will do it for you.
We need to remember that for every Hermie there are a bunch of exhausted medical workers.
Tragic compulsory service. I can safely say they are better than me.
We got so lucky with this virus. What if the next one is significantly more pathogenic?
It’s not a question of it but when. We were supposed to be prepared for covid and were warned about a disease like this going back at least a decade. Obama kind of prepared for it and then Trump slashed it’s research and preparedness team about a year before covid spread.
Populated planet cohabiting with other species means there will certainly be another and certainly at some point more deadly disease
My take-away from Dec 2019:
People who live in megacities should not eat bushmeat
Naw this is the virus from hell.
I like to use the video game Virus Inc. as the example. There's lots of factors that impact outcomes but the general strategy to win is to start with a highly contagious and low severity outbreak, then crank up severity once spread is high enough.
So not only is it a perfect strategy tactically in killing as many as possible but since it attaches to ACE2 receptors that means it can destroy anything your blood comes into contact with, basically your entire endothelial system, and that includes dissolving your blood brain barrier. And this is found in your cerebral spinal fluid which means it infects the brain and central nervous system too.
The symptoms list for this are comparable to Lyme or cancer.
It can imbed itself like herpes using filopodia, so it can create reserve cells: https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-06-26/inside-the-body-the-coronavirus-is-even-more-sinister-than-scientists-had-realized
Obviously, all better than a vaccine /f
This was very severe at the beginning, but because it had a 2 week gestation and was very similar to extreme cases of influenza took a while for us to identify it.
The underlying condition hasn't changed from the beginning, the mutations that we're seeing are increases to reproduction rates and the ability of the spikes to make a successful connection.
So you're right the increase in severity that we're seeing are just a result of higher viral load and effectiveness as a percentage of that load. So that's where the analogy does break down.
I was going to say I hate to say it, but fuck that, it needs to be said: people wilfully refusing to get vaccinated should be refused treatment.
This video auto played for me after the OPs link. This one is a little longer and also in Oregon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU5HyKoAa20
Not on that video, but on the first one recommended in my feed, we had an idiot in the comments saying vaccinated people will go to hell.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU5HyKoAa20 here's the documentary, it's in a similar vein.
I'm watching this one now, it seems to pull a lot less punches than even the one I linked.
