CDC dramatically eases mask recommendations for vaccinated AmericansPosted by Thomas Bush / May 14, 2021
The CDC has dramatically eased it masking recommendations for vaccinated Americans, no longer recommending that masks be worn outdoors or indoors (with some exceptions like hospitals and nursing homes).
The average daily rate of COVID infections have fallen below 40,000 for the first time since September. Vaccination rates are also dropping, but more than 101 million Americans have received at least one COVID shot as of the beginning of May, bringing the total to about 43%.
Just a few weeks ago, the number of vaccines peaked at 2.4 million shots a day.
Nearly 70% of Americans approved of Joe Biden’s COVID plans in the earliest stages of his presidency, polls revealed. That included 97% of Democrats, 40% of Republicans, and 70% of independents. Biden’s plans, following immediately on the heels of Trump’s “who cares” approach, were undoubtedly even more popular because of the contrast.
At the time, recall, Ambulances were waiting up to eight hours in COVID-ravaged Los Angeles. Despite record numbers of COVID cases and deaths, some 30% of Californians are violating stay-at-home orders. Meanwhile, as the state prepares to extend the stay-at-home orders, groups of maskless protestors are gathering to sing Christmas carols in protest. Perhaps that is why a whopping 6 people are dying per hour in Los Angeles County.
California continues to break COVID records, and as a result hospitals in the state are being “crushed” by an influx of patients. ICU beds are rapidly disappearing, especially in the southern half of the state.
Donald Trump has tweeted 729 times since the election, and none of those tweets were about COVID’s death toll. If that doesn’t show you he isn’t taking COVID seriously, try this on for size. Pfizer said that it has millions of vaccines ready to ship out, but the federal government hasn’t directed those shipments.
Jenna Ellis, one of the lawyers on Trump’s legal team, has COVID. If you’re hearing Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” ringing in your ears… Rudy Giuliani, the center of media spectacles about the so-called stolen election, has COVID. His son, Andrew Giuliani, also has COVID.
The White House, already chock full of coronavirus cases, is hosting nearly a dozen indoor holiday parties.Donald Trump Jr. tested positive for COVID two weeks ago. In case that doesn’t make it abundantly clear that Trump doesn’t care about COVID and who gets it––and who might die because of it––a whopping 130 Secret Service agents are either COVID positive or quarantining after Trump refused to quarantine (and took a victory lap from the hospital where he was recovering from COVID).
