Sully lives in Provincetown and is saying that the panic over the Delta variant is nothing but media driven hysteria and sloppy “journalism.” The “science” also isn’t what it used to be.
“A famed conservative columnist who lives at the epicenter of the United States’ latest Delta COVID cluster said of the virus ‘Let it rip’ after seeing how mild his vaccinated friends’ symptoms were.
Writer Andrew Sullivan says the COVID-19 outbreak in Provincetown, Massachusetts, that infected around 900 people and triggered CDC‘s mask U-turn was sparked by wild July 4 indoor parties following Pride Week.
This outbreak was behind the CDC’s sudden backpedal on mask recommendations for vaccinated Americans to wear masks in indoor places in COVID hot spots.
But now Sullivan says first-hand experience of his friends’ illnesses showed that the Indian Delta variant poses little risk to vaccinated people – and called for restrictions to be lifted once and for all. …
Sullivan said many had just come from Pride parties in New York City and packed into bars and dance clubs.
One of the bars is like a ‘dang dungeon where sweat drips from the ceiling and mold reaches up the walls,’ Sullivan said.
‘It might have been designed for viral transmission,’ he added. …”
In related news, Axios is backpeddling on the Delta variant panic.
“Of the 164 million vaccinated Americans, less than 0.1% have been infected with the coronavirus, and 0.001% have died, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. …”
BTW, the unvaccinated skew young, working class and non-White. It is not merely Trump supporting anti-vaxxers in Red States who aren’t bothering to get vaccinated. Most people under the age of 40 understand that COVID isn’t really a health threat to them.
