It would be extraordinarily helpful if these news articles would identify the age of those dying from Covid and whether there were pre-existing conditions, as opposed to causing healthy people to go into a state of panic as leverage to force people to get this “vaccine“. By the way, a vaccine is defined as preventing the disease and therefore if you have to have continuous boosters, it is not a “vaccine“, it is a flu shot.

A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired IMMUNITY to a particular infectious disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins, or one of its surface proteins.

Covid lingering for years. Like the flu, we'll just have to get used to it.

So agree with Kjgamble as to knowing additional patient details - The media doesn't provide thorough details anymore, just their quick bullet points and onto their commercials. today - CoCoCounty population 1,159.507 residents - Active cases 2767, with 179 hospitalized. Cases DOWN 37.5% over past 2 weeks. Vaccination rate 84.5%.

Whether someone has "pre-existing conditions" is no one else's business. Patients are entitled to their privacy. Quit being so nosy and grow up. If you're that fearful of a virus, stay home.
