This is insanity.

These people won't take the Covid vaccines, but will take advice from non medical sources to ingest livestock dewormer to prevent/cure Covid 19.


As covid-19 surges in Mississippi, some people are ingesting an unproven livestock dewormer
https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/08/21/mississippi-ivermectin-covid-surge-livestock/

Cases of people consuming ivermectin to treat the coronavirus in Mississippi are drawing alarm, with the state’s health department issuing an alert Friday warning people not to take the drug, saying the state’s poison control center has “received an increasing number of calls from individuals with potential ivermectin exposure taken to treat or prevent covid-19 infection.”
................
Between March and this month, Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham promoted the use of ivermectin as an alternative covid treatment to millions of viewers on their prime-time shows. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) was suspended from YouTube in June for posting a video touting ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine as treatments for covid-19.



I find this horrifyingly depressing.

Idiots got to idiot....
Perhaps, but i just can't fathom anything other than actual mental instability being a contributing factor in convincing and leading a person to such an irrational conclusion.

From fish tank additives to clorox/Lysol disinfectants.....and now to livestock de-wormers.

The damage wrought on this nations psyche by Trump is horrifying, immense, immeasurable and permanent. 😤🤬(n)
He was/is the catalyst for an underlying flaw in human nature.

Headline says it all.


Ultra-Vaxxed Israel’s Crisis Is a Dire Warning to America
https://news.yahoo.com/ultra-vaxxed-israel-debacle-dire-073840050.html

The massive surge of COVID-19 infections in Israel, one of the most vaccinated countries on earth, is pointing to a complicated path ahead for America.

In June, there were several days with zero new COVID infections in Israel......
..........
Fast forward two months later: Israel reported 9,831 new diagnosed cases on Tuesday, a hairbreadth away from the worst daily figure ever recorded in the country—10,000—at the peak of the third wave.............
Too much to copy and paste, but it's about an accumulation of factors from the Delta variant to removing social restrictions.

We start using our vaccination passport September 1st to access all kinds of non-essential activities like eating in restaurants, going to gyms, festivals, sporting events, participating in most sports, etc. It will be more reassuring when doing those things. :)

Kids will start back to school next week and all elementary and high school grades (except Kindergarten) will have to wear masks even in class when seated at their desks as well as in all common areas in most regions. They are doing this rather than having small groups where the kids can only play with the kids in their bubble.

Maybe..........read all the article. It's not a 'done deal' yet.

Statistics previously understated.

One-third of Americans were infected with COVID by December 2020: new study
https://news.yahoo.com/one-third-americans-were-infected-150000744.html

Nearly one-third of the entire U.S. population had been infected with COVID-19 by the end of 2020 — a much higher rate of infection than previously known, a startling new study has found.

The study, which was conducted by researchers at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and published in the journal Nature on Thursday, reveals that 103 million Americans, or 31% of the population, had been infected by December 2020 — and that the rate of infection in New York City at the time was even higher at 44%.
.............
The peer-reviewed research found that by the end of 2020, infection rates were particularly high in several regions and in big cities, with 48% of people in Chicago infected, 52% of Los Angeles and 42% of Miami.

In parts of the Midwest like Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa, more than 60% of the population had been infected, the study found.

Back to topic:

Animals and COVID-19
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/201...rus/2019-ncov/animals/pets-other-animals.html



What You Need to Know
  • Based on the available information to date, the risk of animals spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to people is considered to be low.
  • We are still learning about this virus, but we know that it can spread from people to animals in some situations, especially during close contact.
  • More studies are needed to understand if and how different animals could be affected by COVID-19.
  • People with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should avoid contact with animals, including pets, livestock, and wildlife.
People can spread SARS-CoV-2 to animals, especially during close contact.
There is more in the article...and likely more to come that is currently unknown.
