The latest covid scare is slowly fading. Yes, in New York City and Long Island, the disease still takes down a few victims but the death rate is extremely low unlike March, 2020 when a thousand people a day died in the city and Long Island. Still, panic reigns in the streets in Brooklyn, for example, as scared people mob testing sites, demanding tests! Ahem, this is a great way to spread germs! Look at the pictures from the NY Post:
These poor, scared people mobbed the subways to get to the test distribution centers. This was so stupidly done, it is just amazing to see. The government told everyone to ‘put distance between each other’ which is impossible on the subways and then said, ‘Take the subway to the test distribution sites so you can see if you are infected.’ Utterly illogical and totally irresponsible, whoever thought up this business is nuts.
Or a Democrat, of course. Naw, just a Democrat.
The coronavirus continues onwards and yes, the infection/death rate in NYC has gone up again but the death rate is still extremely low compared to March, 2020. The infection rate is as high as January, 2021. But the death rate remains quite low. This is typical of third/fourth waves of major virus events like the Hong Kong and Spanish flues. This pattern of going down then rising suddenly again is a feature of major flu events.
Yesterday, Vermont…which was supposedly in the grip of the disease according to hysterics, had zero cases and zero deaths from covid infections. Ditto, my own county in NY which is right next door to southern Vermont:
Vermont had only 460 deaths from the disease which was only 737 per million. My county had 227 deaths and a higher rate of death than Vermont but no where near as high as NYC and neighboring counties. Yesterday, we, too had the zero cases/zero deaths:
We are all under the ‘mask’ mandate here in upstate NY and people are irritable about this since the disease is nearly or literally nothing up here in the boondocks now. As the present epidemic fades away, the global warming hysteria is also ‘fading away’ only it is going into the deep freeze which makes it very hard to scare people about being ‘too hot’.
Forget ‘hot’ how about ‘warm’?
California’s Democrats swore up and down that California was in a long, horrible, hot drought that would last 100 years. So of course, it is now repeatedly cold and very wet. In today’s case, rain everywhere, floods all over the place and very heavy, epic snow storms in the mountains:
When there is winds over 100 mph, these snow events are called ‘blizzards’ and many feet of snow is expected to fall this winter and will probably bury everyone trying to ski. On the other hand, this snow won’t melt until after the 4th of July!
Here is the NOAA satellite map of all the ice and snow that covers a huge amount of landscape on the first day of winter:
Do note that most of TURKEY is covered in snow!!!! Greta in Sweden is also 100% in snow, too. She should be very, very happy that global warming has finally ended. ALL of Russia is snow covered. But then, Putin wisely didn’t join in the global warming scam. After all, real global warming would be great for Russia. Why on earth would he not want that?
Putin compares Woke Lunatics to a ‘virus’ that is killing people. ‘Find an antidote,’ he warns:
