1. It's No Wonder Why Many American People Are Confused By The Daily Feed Of Covid News.....

particularly now with this Omicron variant. There are multiple accounts coming in from all over the world about this variant that are conflicting. Some are saying that it is weaker but more transmissible. Others stating that the vaccines aren't working on it and even if vaccinated one has the potential for getting Covid.

Just this morning as I scanned DU and the OP's on Covid and Omicron - it's hard to really get a handle on what the risks are.

It also upsets me that every time we get close to looking like the numbers are coming down and we are winning the battle against Covid - we get complacent; we get lazy and start abandoning some of the protections we were taught.

States and cities open up. Restrictions are taken down or lessened. Everything starts opening up again. Restaurants are allowed to serve people. Sports events pack the stadiums. The powers that be are pushing normalcy. But we're still short of being normal.

Because we push the normal button before its time. Look at how this has hit us just in the last few days. Sports events are being cancelled and rescheduled. SNL was hit hard on its Christmas Show. Live events in many cities and towns across the country are being cancelled.

Is it that we get greedy? Is this more of an economic reaction? Are the 800,000+ deaths just collateral damage because the almighty buck is more important?

Why haven't we learned our lesson and just have some patience to wait before we push the normal button.

I know that I'm impatient too. I would love to get back to normal as soon as possible. But I'm willing to give it time to really get to a point where we feel real confident that we can get back to normal - even if I have to isolate; wear a mask; wash my hands; keep my distance; etc.

Quit trying to end this thing sooner than it can be ended. Quit giving the virus the food it needs to persist and spawn additional variants.

Fauci says this is like a war. Well let's orchestrate a D-Day Invasion. Let's drop the proverbial atom bomb on Covid. Whatever it takes. Mandates. Complete shutdown like some countries are now restarting.
