News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News

Congratulations, Possum Hollar, this is on you:

CDC: Delta becomes dominant coronavirus variant in U.S.

The Delta variant is now the dominant version of COVID-19 in the United States, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Why it matters: The Delta variant, first detected in India, is more transmissible than other versions and is rapidly spreading in multiple countries around the world.

Of note: All coronavirus vaccines used in the U.S. protect against the Delta variant.

By the numbers: The Delta variant surpassed the Alpha variant and accounted for 51.7% of new COVID cases in the U.S. over the two weeks ending July 3.

I wish for Possum Hollar EVERYTHING that they have wished for me, my family, and my friends.

    Back in 1976, Berkeley professor Carlo M. Cipolla outlined the five laws of a constant in society he feared: stupidity. To Cipolla, the stupid people among us possess several identifying traits: “they are abundant, they are irrational, and they cause problems for others without apparent benefit to themselves, thereby lowering society’s total well-being.”
    I think law number 5 is the one most concerning to a healthy functioning society…

    I find it ironic that these people who don’t believe in evolution are proving that it exists. Delta is simply more viable than Alpha COVID-19, so it is supplanting it. Darwin proved right again!

    I think we should keep in mind the good news that’s happening. Per worldometer, the daily number of new cases has dropped from a peak of ~250K in January to ~14K. Daily deaths from ~3300 to ~200. Still concerning, but nothing like the beginning of the year.
