Yeah, maybe we should just let Nazi’s take over the universe.

Maybe we should have apps on our phones that allow easy discrimination.

Maybe we should have social credit scores where we get downgraded when we have an opposing viewpoint.

Stop letting these lying doctors and politicians tell us what to do.

You stop running a bogus PCR test for a bogus virus, then there is no virus.

Why would anyone get a vaccine for the something with a 99% survivability rate?

Does no one have any common sense anymore?

At least we cured the flu though. Idiots.

Or maybe since people die taking a shower and a million other reasons because life is not without risk so let people decide what they want to do with their lives. It’s called America and it’s called freedom of choice. If you wanna wear a mask if you want to get the vaccine then by all means do it. But don’t tell other people what to do. And if you’ve had the vaccine you have nothing to worry about, right?

The numbers are only slightly up. The Delta variant is not running rampant the way the media wants people to think. This is more fascism and more controlled by the government. The numbers are barely up. Statistically it looks like they have gone up a lot because right before this started the numbers were At their lowest point since the pandemic started. So even a slight upturn is statistically significant, but the numbers themselves are relatively low compared to the last 18 months. It’s called data and science. Something liberals are clueless about! Because they’re brainwashed by the mainstream media and the Democrats!

Yep, hate to say it, but the reality is when they said vaccinated people could stop wearing masks and go about their lives as normal, many/most unvaccinated people inconsiderately started doing the same thing, thinking only if themselves with total disregard of protecting the people they come into contact with. Now we all have to go back to wearing masks, at least where I work because so many people can't be trusted to do the right thing.

By the way, a lot of liberals are making political statements also. And the histrionics of someone not getting the vaccine. Who cares. If you believe in the vaccine and you’re vaccinated you don’t have anything to worry about so shut up. Who gives you the right to tell other people how to live their life? If you have the vaccine and you think the vaccine works then go live your life and stop being an idiot and letting the government dictate your life.

I see a lot of liberals making a political statement by wearing a mask outside with a mask is never ever been needed outside. There’s not one shred of evidence that Cove it has ever been able to pass or proliferate outdoors, especially in the daytime. There’s no evidence. None. That a mask has ever been needed outdoors. In fact you should not be wearing a mask outdoors you should be getting fresh air and sun on your face.

I agree with your sentiment to a point. If people want to take on personal risk and not take the vaccine, have at it. However, the problem is that the virus has more opportunities to mutate when more people aren't vaccinated, and the current vaccine may not be effective against the next variant. We are seeing that to some degree with delta.
So while going unvaccinated does put the individual at risk, it also puts the group at risk.

Having said all of that, I acknowledge that we can't force people to get vaccinated. So I suppose we let Darwinism run its course and hope we dont get bad mutations.

The current version is no longer effective so saying it’s mutating because of people being non-vaccinated is a crock of ####. It’s more likely mutating because of the vaccine. The flu has different versions just about every year. This variant is being used to scare people into submission. If this doesn’t work, they will introduce another variant and claim it’s because of non-vaxxers and try to scare you even more.

If you want to vaccinate do it, if you don’t don’t. It’s America and we have the freedom to decide what we put into our own bodies.

Some of you guys are so incredibly dumb it is scary. Even if you've had COVID you still should be vaccinated, as studies are showing, specifically with the MNRA vaccines, that vaccine antibodies are better at fighting various mutations and variants than natural COVID antibodies.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34103407/


I've had the flu multiple times in my life, its not like I can never get the flu ever again since I've had it. Those antibodies eventually go away, the virus mutates, so that is why we get a flu shot every year. At some point I assume we'll also have a yearly COVID vaccine.

Studies seem to show natural antibodies and t-cell immunity probably last 8 months to a year. Maybe a bit longer, but it varies for different people. So I imagine, many people that got COVID around Christmas last winter during the spike and refuse to be vaccinated will get it again this winter.

South Carolina has required vaccines forever in order to go to public school, so I don't understand why now we have a huge resistance to vaccines.

so why is it a flu shot and a covid vaccine. it is not a vaccine. any doctor that is not a politician will tell you "not" to get the "shot" while you have the antibodies. i got nothing against the shot and may get it when i no longer have natural immunity. but hey if i get it again i will deal with it just like i did the first time.

They don’t care about other people? Stop being stupid. What they don’t believe is a lying government. What they don’t believe in is an experimental drug that they cannot be forced to take. Plenty of colleges are not requiring the vaccine. NC State is one of them. I’m highly disappointed that Clemson is not following the data in the science and requiring everyone to be vaccinated. Less than 1200 people under the age of 25 have died in America from Covid. And most of them had some type of health condition. Young healthy people are not at risk

There are plenty of people on the left that find the vaccine very problematic. People with PhD‘s people that are scientists. And the numbers are actually relatively low. Statistically it looks like a big jump because Covid was all but gone in America before Delta. Right now the number of hospitalizations and deaths are near the low since this thing started 18 months ago. But when you double a small number statistically it looks like a huge leak. But it’s not in real numbers. You graduated from Clemson for chrissake! Learn some basic statistics and science and data!

I think they are testing public reactions to more lockdowns and it's overwhelmingly negative. Even among left leaning people. Plus the delta variant petered out in India pretty quickly after a fast uptick.

I feel like the upward climb of cases will cool down in a couple weeks. I just hope they don't impose new restrictions before that so that the waning of the cases is too late to affect restrictions.

You all don't truly understand what a lockdown is. That is the only reason India was able to get control of Delta was through a "don't leave you house for any reason" lockdown.

The US won't do that. Delta is here. It's burning through the unvaxxed without mercy. It's demonstrating break through capabilities with the vaxxed. Though unfortunately too many people are more concerned about themselves than others so it'll continue unabated.

God you people are dumb to be college graduates. They’re never ever should have been lockdowns. The data shows that. The lockdowns didn’t really do much. And there’s never ever been a shred of evidence that a mask is needed outdoors. In fact you should not be wearing a mask outdoors.

Covid is not anywhere near as deadly as you people want to believe because you have been brainwashed. Go look at the data. 80% of the people that have died from Covid were 65 or older or they were obese and had diabetes. It’s not killing people randomly. This is not smallpox.

I guarantee you at least 100,000 of the people that have died did not die from Covid. It’s the way the data and statistics are taken. And we know for a fact that Cuomo killed probably 20,000 people with his incompetency and other governors in blue states put Covid patients in nursing homes killing a lot of people also.

1.5 million people or more die every year in America from heart conditions and other conditions that are controlled almost exclusively by our diet and lifestyle. Covid has a key or anywhere near that many people in 18 months. Yeah that many people die every year in America. Where is your outrage over that? This is all political posturing and histrionics and virtue signaling. If you people really cared about peoples lives the way you’re pretending over Covid you woikd be outraged by government policies that have led to obesity and metabolic syndrome and diabetes being epidemic in America over the last 40 years. It’s sugar and carbohydrates and preservatives and hi fructose corn syrup China and other processed foods that are making people obese and have diabetes which in turn leads to most of the things that kill people in America every year and these are the things that make people vulnerable to Covid. Where is your outrage over that?

Why hasn’t the government been saying get outside and exercise. Take vitamin D and get sun on your face. Take zinc. Stop eating sugar and processed foods. Eat a healthier diet and exercise. Do all the things that actually boost your natural immune system which is the best way to fight Covid. Losing weight, lowering your blood sugar, and doing other things that will improve your health not just for Covid but diabetes obesity metabolic syndrome heart disease cancer etc. etc. You should be outraged that the government has not been telling people to do the things that will make them best be able to deal with Covid. And save millions of lives every year in America and greatly reduce the cost of healthcare in America.

I'm a physician and Clemson Grad (Biochemistry). There are a lot of things that you have said in this post and some of the others that I can't possibly agree with due to my understanding of virology, medicine, etc.

However, I will agree with you on a few points:
1) Addressing the obesity epidemic is every bit as important if not more so than addressing the COVID epidemic
2) Vitamin D and Zinc deficiency issues are real and there is evidence that both play a role in viral transmission and susceptibility. I do not understand why health organizations and the government have not addressed Vitamin D Deficiency in particular more than they have (specifically in regards to COVID)
3) High fructose corn syrup is a huge problem for this country and steps should be taken to convert back to using less processed sweeteners (including cane sugar)
4) Healthier diet and exercise offers improved outcomes both in general and in people who are infected with viruses (including COVID)

All that said - it doesn't need to be one or the other... improving your odds of survival by doing all of the above doesn't mean that you shouldn't consider a vaccine that improves your odds of survival as well. It doesn't mean that you shouldn't wear masks at indoor gatherings to improve the survival of those around you. Maximizing longevity would involve an "all of the above" strategy - do all of the things you mentioned PLUS appropriate vaccines, public health measures, etc.

I'm generally in favor of people having the liberty of choosing what decision is best for them - I just hope they're willing to consider the best interests of people around them as part of what is best for them. I also hope people are willing to accept that they may have consequences (both foreseen and unforeseen) of the decisions they make. Ultimately - I hope that we can get away from villainizing people who make different decisions or see things differently from us. Part of our problem now is that we think we have to choose one of two sides on almost everything now and are basically trained to think that the other side is full of inherently bad/stupid/ignorant/gullible/etc. people. That's simply not the case. We can simply be people who disagree on particular issues and learn how to manage that. Maybe figuring out how to solve that problem is even more critical that solving obesity, COVID, etc.

Withstand the breakthrough, some older vaxxed people might not. My parents are 82 and 81, both vaxxed. I pray they will be able to withstand the variant breakthrough, but at that age, who knows. They are two lively people, that love to get up and go do things. My dad still drives the two of them around everyday, plays golf, goes to Clemson games. My mother thinks the Sun rises and sets on him and he thinks she hung the moon. They have been married 60 years as of this past May. They married May 26, 1961 in the parsonage of their church. The preacher married them and the preacher's wife had to stop making biscuits to be a witness. They didn't have a royal wedding,
but like my dad says, it took. They are still very much in love. They like to see their grandchildren play sports. They have a lot of living still to do. They dont want to die from this mess, with no family able to go in the hospital, etc.
This part we are in now is all on the non vaxxers. As someone said, the answer was right in front of them.
They like to talk about their freedom. Men died in wars from Asia to Europe. Men gave their lives from the beaches of Normandy to Vietnam, to Afghanistan. All this country asked the people to do for their nation now was to get a vaccine. And they couldn't muster the half ounce of unselfish patriotism to do that. Yet they will be the first to brag about how they live this country. No, they love their political party.

Y’all are very well trained monkeys in the UK. Your government and your media has brainwashed the #### out of you. Here’s a little bit of statistics for you. Last summer during the lockdown in New York 65% of the new people being infected and hospitalized more people staying at home! You should be outside without a mask exercising take vitamin D take zinc work on your immune system. Staying inside actually makes it spread more. You people have no clue about the data and the science. And the numbers are actually extremely low even with the Delta variant. We are near the low in hospitalizations and deaths since the pandemic started. Statistically it looks like the numbers are high but the actual number of people being hospitalized and dying is near the low over the last 18 months.

California and New York had the most restrictive lockdowns in America. Texas and Florida were very relaxed. Texas and Florida did better than New York in California.

As a former clinical pathologist, the majority of the deaths are the unvaccinated, however the vaccinated, even though not as serious, can infect others if not wearing a mask. Need a mask mandate, and continue the increase in vaccination, and maybe we can get our 70,000. Hope so!

Im healthy and see no reason to get vaxxed. I take vitamins, work out, and eat healthy. Working out sucks sometimes, eating heathly sucks sometimes, going to bed early sucks sometimes, but I do it because my health is my responsibility. Id never depend on others to keep my discipline in check. I wish more people thought this way but again...to each their own.

Your health is your responsibility.

If you are worried about the virus, get vaccinated. But I'd also encourage you to eat healthy, take vitamins, go for a walk or do some type of work out every week. The human immune system can lock down viruses like our D locked down Alabama in that 2018/2019 Championship game.

But you won't hear anything like that coming from the wrong politicians, and that goes for either side, right or left.

I think some people believe that the vaccine makes their bodies block the virus from ever entering their bodies or something idk. I was under the impression that it builds up your immunity but I'm not a scientist just a vet tech lol. I just dont see why I would get the vx when I have not gotten sick from this virus that I have been in contact with. I do believe some people should get vaccinated tho so I'm not anti vax like people will make me out to be because I am not vaccinated.
