  1. So sick of the tension. I will wear masks again, I will get a booster shot and I will social distance again. But social media and news is so toxic, more so then ever.

  2. > “I’m not seeing anything that says this is going to level off,” Williamson said. “In other states, they’re seeing numbers higher than in January. I’m afraid that’s where we’re headed, and it’s headed very rapidly. It’s going to be very difficult to manage the number of patients now as we did in January because we have fewer staff.

    So tragic and preventable. We are really asking too much of our health care providers. The solution is obvious and available. None of this needed to happen. The people responsible for misleading the public need to be held accountable.

  3. Hospitals around Mobile are sending people home with blood ox monitors and scripts because there’s nowhere to put them. They’re instructed to come back if ox falls below something like 50. It’s crazy. Women’s & Childrens hospital is slam full of Covid kids including an 18 day old newborn. And yet…had a man tell me just a few days ago it’s all crap and bill gates orchestrated it all for population. Control. It’s really hard to not agree with the folks saying to not help the unvaccinated.

  4. It is very unfortunate that the entire pandemic became political, creating these strong anti-mask and anti-vax cultures in some areas, Alabama being a very red state has very low vaccination rates, ~35% fully vaccinated, this is only up 3% since June. Thankfully there is an uptick for first does vaccines in the past few weeks thankfully, but it is not enough.

    I suppose it is summarised with a lack of critical thinking and education, an abundance of bad information and bad faith actors spreading this information.

  5. If only there was some way to reduce the infection rate by stopping airborne aerosols from passing between people. I’m sure someone will come up with a simple, unobtrusive device to cover the mouth and nose.

  6. Huntsville Alabama here!

    Per NYT dataset:
    Alabama, Fully-Vaccinated: All Ages (includes people under 12yo) 34%. 18yo+ 44%. 65yo+ 70%. Good job 65yo+!

    Madison County AL, Fully-Vaccinated: All Ages (includes people under 12yo) 44%. 18yo+ 54%. 65yo+ 81%. Fantastic job 65yo+!

    Now, you younger folks who think you’re too young to die from COVID-19: first, covid can hurt you in other ways beyond death. Second, you’re unnecessarily prolonging this problem and putting other people at risk. Go get yourself vaccinated! We’re in this together!

  7. People who are sick should not be rejected. Toss out the unvaccinated covid idiots you’re tending to and instead treat the victims of a heart attack, accident or strike. They’re there through no fault of their own. Unvaccinated covidiots should rank bottom of the care barrel.

  8. The bad situation is back again, people should be careful and take care of their body health. Don’t panic, be clam and cool. But the fact is lots of people are getting more nervous and fear due to the current worst situation.
