Deadly distractions

CNN tells us that yesterday was the worst day on record for the Trump-Virus:

More than 247,000 new cases were reported. More than 113,000 Americans are hospitalized with the virus, according to the COVID Tracking Project. And more than 3,600 deaths were added to the nation’s death toll.

And so with that record in the back of our minds, imagine our surprise to learn:

‘We want them infected’: Trump appointee demanded ‘herd immunity’ strategy, emails reveal

A top Trump appointee repeatedly urged top health officials to adopt a “herd immunity” approach to Covid-19 and allow millions of Americans to be infected by the virus, according to internal emails obtained by a House watchdog and shared with POLITICO.

“There is no other way, we need to establish herd, and it only comes about allowing the non-high risk groups expose themselves to the virus. PERIOD,” then-science adviser Paul Alexander wrote on July 4 to his boss, Health and Human Services assistant secretary for public affairs Michael Caputo, and six other senior officials.

Everyone except the Olds, it seems, was in the crosshairs. Being sociopaths, they have no idea how social interactions work, so do you see a flaw in the plan? Yeah, I knew you did!

“Infants, kids, teens, young people, young adults, middle aged with no conditions etc. have zero to little risk….so we use them to develop herd…we want them infected…” Alexander added.

I wonder if this is when the 4th Reich started demanding that kids go back to school?

“[I]t may be that it will be best if we open up and flood the zone and let the kids and young folk get infected” in order to get “natural immunity…natural exposure,” Alexander wrote on July 24 to Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn, Caputo and eight other senior officials. Caputo subsequently asked Alexander to research the idea, according to emails obtained by the House Oversight Committee’s select subcommittee on coronavirus.

Hey, remember that time Mike Meadows said a truth?

 “We’re not going to control the pandemic.”

He wasn’t kidding. All those super-spreader events were part of the plan.

  1. Headline in todays paper here:

    Arizona sets record for COVID-19 hospitalizations, ties daily death record
    Amid ongoing virus surge, Gov. Doug Ducey touts vaccines, says no new restrictions on public activity are necessary

    Our positivity rate is now 20%. One in five people getting tested test positive.

    *”Maybelle allus said MeMaw’s stuffin’ recipe was to die fer!”

    (well one reason he can say ‘no new restrictions are necessary is that the mayors of the three of the largest cities, instituted mask requirements as early as March, Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Tucson. and are imposing shutdowns and restrictions on gatherings. Il Deuce is another one of the Death Cult members.

    The NYT has an interactive map of available ICU beds https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/covid-hospitals-near-you.html

    It’s gonna be a race between death and vaccination.

    Maybe the reason the Pol PotBelly administration didn’t ask for those additional doses Pfizer offered was that they expect the population to be down enough not to need them 😦

      Your last statement assumes social awareness not in evidence.
      The reason they didn’t ask for additional doses was they saw no personal profit in it for them.

      That Reno hospital that converted one floor of a parking garage into extra beds currently has most available ICU beds in the region.
      Our local hospital has 1 more bed available – occupancy rate is at 89% right now.
      That’s an interesting map.

    At least we know one thing for sure. Death was not an unintended consequence of this plan.

    Something I’ve been doing (when trolling the wingnuts) is instead of calling the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 I call it Rotten Lung Disease or dying from rotten lungs.

    Much more graphic you know…
