The Delta variant is now so wide-spread and deadly that a national recommendation on masks is on the table:
“The talks are in a preliminary phase and their result could be as simple as new messaging from top White House officials. But some of the talks include officials at the CDC who are separately examining whether to update their masking guidance. …
“Officials cautioned that any new formal guidance would have to come from the CDC, and they maintained that the White House has taken a hands-off approach with the agency to ensure they are not interfering with the work of scientists. But the high-level discussions reflect rising concerns across the administration about the threat of the delta variant and a renewed focus on what measures may need to be reintroduced to slow its spread.”
And it is worth noting that the Anti-Vaxxers on always-execrable Facebook are working really hard at spreading their disinformation, too/also:
“Some anti-vaccination groups on Facebook are changing their names to euphemisms like ‘Dance Party’ or ‘Dinner Party,’ and using code words to fit those themes in order to skirt bans from Facebook, as the company attempts to crack down on misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines.
“The groups, which are largely private and unsearchable but retain large user bases accrued during the years Facebook permitted anti-vaccination content, also swap out language to fit the new themes and provide code legends, according to screenshots provided to NBC News by multiple members of the groups.”
The Trump-Virus is not going away, at least not easily, and Possum Hollar is dying, you know, to pwn the Libs. As we’ve noted, we have a new divide in the country, the Vaccinated and the Infected. If you are not in the first group, you will soon be in the latter.
