Europe is entering another Covid wave

Europe is entering yet another Covid wave.

The news has been alarming from Western Europe for over a week now.

Is this the US future?

The news has been alarming from some of the Western US.

The news is that hospitals are struggling with Covid case volume.

Despite the vaccinations efforts.

Despite the booster efforts.

Despite the mask mandates still in existence for my state.

Despite everything.

There are still at least 1,000 deaths a day.

I know, because I am obsessive like that.

I read ALL the articles.

Foreign and domestic.

And I see everyone acting as if the pandemic is over.

Today’s sum total is 775,785.

We hit another milestone.

Boo.

I get the totals I monitor daily from the Johns Hopkins Covid-19 dashboard.

And I see everyone celebrating as if this is over.

It ain’t over until the fat lady sings.

Wash your hands, wear a mask, get vaccinated.

If not for yourself because of some misguided beliefs.

Then for your neighbors.

And their new baby.

Or their child who is immuno-compromised and is too young for the vaccine.

I can’t believe we are still having this conversation.

I’m so tired of having this conversation.

Aren’t you?
