CDC: Keep Your Guard Up

(h/t Scissorhead @NamelessCynic)

CDC chief Rochelle Walensky warns us that she feels a sense of impending doom about a potential fourth surge:

“We have so much to look forward to, so much promise and potential of where we are and so much reason for hope, but right now I’m scared.”

EEEK!

The U.S. is currently recording a weekly average of 63,239 new Trump-Virus cases per effing day, a 16% increase from a week ago and is seeing a 4.2% increase from last week in hospitalizations, up to a seven-day average of 4,816 coronavirus admissions as of Friday, so we got that working for us.

We know a lot of that bad news can be placed directly at the feet of  Red State Gubnors rolling back safety restrictions as the new, highly contagious coronavirus strains wreak havoc. (Looking at you, Gib. DeSantis of Floriduh for inviting the virus to spring break! Jello shots are not vaccines.)

But here’s some good news:

White House senior adviser for COVID response Andy Slavitt says that the U.S. is averaging about 2.7 million shots per day, “This is good news. We’re headed in the right direction, but we can’t slow down. Millions remain unvaccinated and at risk.”

But keep up your guard, Scissorheads. Walensky again:

“I’m speaking today not necessarily as your CDC director and not only as your CDC director, but as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter, to ask you to just please hold on a little while longer.

“When we see that uptick in cases, what we have seen before is that things really have a tendency to surge, and surge big.”

    Stumbling right before the finish line is not a good thing.

  2. Our state health director, verbatim:

    The state’s top health official said Friday there’s no reason to continue to limit business occupancy, prohibit large group gatherings and require customers to wear masks because Arizona hospitals now have plenty of space.

    I begin to get the feeling that we will never be free of this disease, and mostly because of the politically ignorant. I just saw some troll today on a site being all hostile about the idea of being a citizen and even taking precautions, much less get the shot.
    Too much political retardation out there.

    Hubs (82) and I (79) got our 1st Moderna shots here in mid-TN on January 13th, and the 2nd ones on February 10th, and we still wear masks everywhere we go. Better safe, than sorry!

    I finally got my first shot 2 wks ago, and the 2nd is upcoming on the 6th.

    It was the Virus that ended up killing me anyway – one of the few, THE most productive exercise programs I could ever hope to use (Aqua Aerobics) was canceled when all the gyms closed. And even though my e-bike was helping. when I fell last fall (swidt?), I got so out of shape that it’s now almost impossible for me to regain my former strength, etc.
