Guys, it’s unbelievable, but even as the Darwin Variant of the Trump-Virus is surging in South Dakota, the Sturgis Bike Rawley is ON:
Thousands of bikers have converged on the tiny South Dakota community of Sturgis for the annual 10-day.
The rally got underway on Friday amid a surge ofcases in the United States being fueled by the highly-contagious Delta variant. In South Dakota, cases spiked nearly 70% in the days before the rally started.
OK, but what about…
The rally kicked off ceremoniously, with no mask mandates. No proof of vaccinations are needed, Mola Lenghi reports for “CBS This Morning: Saturday.”
So, just like last year’s
rally, er, super spreader event only with a much more contagious (and deadly) variant. Got it.
Here’s a grim new statistic to start your weekend, via the AP: “U.S. now averaging 100,000 new coronavirus infections a day” —watch that number rise after Sturgis.
