"He had everything to live for," Mike told the Times-Dispatch about his brother. "He had five kids and a grandson, and now all of them have lost him."

"It really came out of nowhere."

If "nowhere" means "not being vaccinated."

Kevin, 48, became ill and was told to rest at home after he tested positive for COVID-19

Their intentional defiance aside, this is the part that makes me angry. With what we know now, anyone nationwide who tests positive with symptoms should be automatically receiving monoclonal antibodies. But they can't, because the south is so overrun with Covid that there isn't enough to go around.

FTA: Shortly after, Misty, who was 46 and living with diabetes, got sick, too.
Misty was rushed to Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg and put on a ventilator. She died soon after

Gosh, too bad no one knew the risk of comorbidities!

This is sad. This could have been me. I did not get vaxxed until about two months ago. I wasn't worried about tracking or anything crazy, I just wanted to see if there would be any immediate side effects.

Five children and a grandson is NOT a win for Darwin. Do you guys even know how the Darwin Awards work?

Some people are too stupid to live.

I just don't have any sympathy left for these people. Or Republicans/Trumpers in general. They're willfully ignorant and hateful. Are they that way because they have *always* been that way, or are they that way because they have been brainwashed by right-wing propaganda? I don't know. It doesn't matter at this point. Yeah, the right-wing propagandists are feeding on weak-minded people, and that needs to stop. But in the meantime, screw those people. It's all gone too far at this point.

"It really came out of nowhere," Mike told the outlet.

He has a point, I mean, who could have possibly suspected that covid was even a thing? It's only been on every possible source of written (paper and electronic), television, and radio information on the planet for two years or so. How could anyone possibly expect to have heard of it?

Turns out the Republicans lied to the American people.

You're so right, but so wrong all at the same time.

There's no shortage of monoclonal antibodies, for any group that wants to start a clinic.

There are two by me that just started in the last month.

~8-9 months after the first people were vaccinated?

I'm not sure you know what immediate means.

I got covid before the vaccine came out because family members didn't care about basic precautions and lived in the same house.  I had a light case and it was still terrifying, and has resulted in me getting reduced lung capacity.

You bet my fat ass got the vaccine the morning of the first day I could, and it still baffles me that people won't get it.  I see people who have lost family members to Covid refuse to get it.

Disinformation is goddamn scary, there's a lot of tragedy for no damn reasob, so I guess mocking the antivaxxers is all I got.

Yeah, I guess testing and then hundreds of thousands\millions of doses administered weren't conclusive enough for someone with your obvious high degree of ability to evaluate risk.

Yeah, you got lucky, the Reaper happened to be looking somewhere else.  Sometimes luck favors the stupid

Anti-vaxxers continue to refuse because they have essentially made a pact with their tribe by refusing in the first place.  If they were to break that pact and get vaccinated, they face ostracism.  Social death is worse than actual death. Yay psychology.

Most people who are still holding out are true believers. They think they have taken a strong moral and ethical stand. It's even harder to walk someone back down from that position, especially if they have espoused those views publicly to their peers. And if they were found out to have gotten vaccinated in secret, not only would they be a pact breaker, but they would no longer be trustworthy.

22+ months ago, John Hopkins Covid tracker went live January 22nd 2020, we had it up on our system monitor at work a few days later instead of our pre-production environment because lockdowns were already affecting some of our offices worldwide by that point. That was also the week that the Wuhan hospital build started.
