This is so dumb.

As viruses evolve they get more contagious and less deadly.

This is normal.
It's so dishonest to say it's vaccine resistant. It's antibody resistant....big difference. The vaccinated and previously infected are still going to have a robust immune response and be protected against severe disease. The left can't help but yell fire in crowded theaters.

COVID-19 Survival Rates:
Ages 0-19 --> 99.997%
Ages 20-49 --> 99.98%
Ages 50-69 --> 99.5%
Ages 70+ --> 94.6%

BTW, if I'm not mistaken the above Dr. Ding alleged at some point that the two people infected with the new variant in Hong Kong were quarantining in rooms across from one another and hinted that it's proof of how insanely infectious this new variant is.

Does that mean the virus is able to evade masks + multiple doors?

Like, if my neighbor in the unit 20 feet across the courtyard sneezes and has his window cracked should I be freaking out and go get a test?

Help.
BUH DR DING

Always the same procedure:

1) Find fringe elements on Twitter.
2) Claim that this is a thing now.
3) sh!t your diaper over it.

Summer is a really shitty time to go to Europe.

I have tix for February, not counting on being able to go.

Because of course I might bring in some COVID.
Early June in Greece this year was great. Crowd was probably artificially lower though, so not sure what a “normal” year would look like.

July and especially August, absofrigginlutely not

"U.S. to restrict travel from S Africa and 7 other countries. "

Makes sense. It's just unfortunate that Trump got called a racist for doing the same thing back when all this started.
