Michigan and New York were sentinel states.
It's going to happen everywhere, just like it did before.
Do people really forget that stuff?

Ohio's numbers are pretty high in the northern part of the state.

Funny how that coincided with colder weather though.

I had my booster and flu shots six weeks ago.

GardenWeasel: It is deer hunting season in MI.

SARS-CoV-2 exposure in wild white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) | PNAS


Given that the same populace of deer hunters were making "bat soup" jokes, perhaps they shouldn't be bathing in and drinking all that deer piss.

Florida currently has a lull in cases.  It's the midwest that's bad right now.  Probably due to people staying indoors with low-humidity central heating.

I wouldn't put it past florida to hold case numbers until next week and blame it on the snowbirds.

Hello, Canada.  Have I got a deal for you?  It's a fixer upper in some places and, I won't lie to you, there is a vermin problem.  But it is priced to move and I thought you should get first dibs.  Don't want to influence you but there are interested parties. (cough cough North Korea) My boss says I gotta move this property soon.  So, call me.  You can see everything on Google the Earth.  It hasn't been updated much since the last pass.  But you like challenges.

COVID stories have been spreading unchecked in the politics tab.  The uncontrolled breeding resulted in a series of small mutations that reduced the STEM tab's immunity.  Be prepared for a surge.

It's on the main tab.  The crossover of the STEM tab and main tab will no doubt bring some of Fark's finest thinkers to the fore.

The combination of moron rednecks and IT professionals will no doubt lead to genius solutions to this problem, most of them involving some form of genocide, I assume.

Family fully vaxxed even the daughter with the MAGAT boyfriend who has a pro Trump page.

I had to tell her that she was not welcome in the house until she showed me a  Publix vax appointment and the signed  card.  Helluva way to treat a 30 something, right?

Anyway, we spent the week in true MAGAT land, Destin, Florida.  The license plates on cars let you know you aint in Kansas anymore.  Fewer Trump shirts than anticipated, but not a mask in sight.

Fun to watch the Weebles (ever see those commercials on Saturday morning?  "they wobble but don't fall!") fresh from Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky learning to walk.  They are on vacay and by Gawd this is what people do on vacay!  They exercise!!

We only have 54% fully vaccinated. That's the problem.

Damn, crazy how much I don't care. Any of these fear-pushing-media-losers wondered how humans lived 100,000 years without a vaccine? No, don't think about that. That's not a very profitable thought for big pharma and they just can't afford  for you to think like that.

In hot states people stay inside in the summer. In cold states people stay inside in the winter.

Everybody is ignoring the obvious solution to the unvaccinated, unrelenting public shame.

The local Detroit TV news covered a story about an engaged, 40 year-old couple that both caught bad cases.  The bride-to-be was begging for help locating a hospital with a ventilator before her groom-to-be suffocated.  By calling out to the public for help and donations, they were able to find one.  No stories pointed out that both were vocally anti-vaxx and had ignored basic precautions and decency toward those that were cautious.

He got a ventilator while somebody more deserving didn't and while he's still on it weeks later, the bride-to-be is thanking Jesus and not the people who will be sacrificed by not having access to that ventilator while he's still using it.

Maybe DeSantis got it right. I know lots of Democrats in Florida that want to re-elect DeSantis to a second term for his actions on handling COVID.

You want to know how they lived without vaccines?

They lived short, brutal lives. They died frequently to now-preventable diseases. When they made it to adulthood, they had tons of kids because that was the best and only way to ensure one would reach adulthood.

Correlation doesn't mean causation. They also didn't have plumbing, electricity, or reliable food. But don't pay attention to any of that, you just keep repeating what the news man says. You just keep paying at least $500/month for health insurance that won't cover anything while our politicians simultaneously funnel billions of dollars to big pharma. "PLEASE BIG PHARMA! PLEASE WE NEED YOU!" Cried the weak.

Yeah, when Florida was getting slammed, some people tried explaining this to farkers and pointed out it would move north, just like one year ago.

And the Mayor of Detroit is too afraid of government unions to have a vaccine mandate for city workers.

it's going to get worse by the way.

a bunch of counties that have maintained masks requirements for schools are set to drop them on January 1 under the logic that a vaccine is available for young children and 60 days more than enough time for anyone that wants their kids to have one to get one.

And that's how it should work. Glenn Youngkin is right, let the parents decide, not the school. Vaccinated children will return to school sooner than an unvaccinated child. They can't mandate vaccines until the hesitant learn that vaccines save lives and recover quicker.

But the kid does not have that choice.  It's up to the parent to might the right choice.  We all know most will not make the right choice.

Mandating vaccines is the best option at this point.  And considering we mandate like a half dozen others, it's pretty darn normal.  Some uppity political idiots want to homeschool their kids?  Be my guest!

It will be years before we see COVID vaccines being mandated for schools outside of California. It was years before the polio vaccine was mandated and we don't mandate neither the HPV vaccine nor the flu shot. The former is highly effective.
