    let this be a reminder to us that our battle against COVID will indeed not tolerate failure

    Yakobo Saratiel Tv says:

    Covid was well prepared how to deal with humans.

    Carpe Diem says:

    It’s just getting the flu, the vast majority of ppl will get sick for a while and then recover. Some weak ppl will die. It’s always been that way, everyone just needs to stfu and stop trying to make this bigger than it is……even though they’ve already done so…

    Gemthetics says:

    “Call on the Lord in the day of trouble,
    and He will deliver you. ”
         -Psalm  50 :15

    Robert Lane says:

    Hi it’s me Tayla I want to say my stepsister’s have the covid and my real sister too and my dad but only me and my stepmom does not even have covid

    Whit Dough says:

    About half the world took this and that in their arm, and still cases are surging, I’m confused 🤔

    Kc 82 says:

    Omfg, is this *REALLY* that hard for you to understand?!?! Unfortunately, for you, I can’t get out crayons and draw you a picture, so I’m going to dumb this down as much as possible.

    A lot of stupid people decide not to get the vaccine, so we can’t reach herd immunity and Covid is mutating because of that.
    But, luckily the vaccine DOES give you amazing protection from going to the hospital and especially amazing protection from dying. Do you now understand why vaccines are so important, or are you going to stick with your stance on being stunningly stupid? Never mind, I already know the answer to that. 🤪🤪🤪

    Kc 82 says:

    @Thought Criminal, the reasoning is pretty simple. 90-95% of the world has to be vaccinated to reach herd immunity. We’re not even close to that, so the virus continues to mutate and spread.

    john bees says:

    @Kc 82 You do realize we are on Flurona now right? I can’t wait for Gold and Silver edition.

    Thought Criminal says:

    @Kc 82
    But vaccinated people catch and spread covid exactly the same as unvaccinated.

    Thought Criminal says:

    @Kc 82
    I can see the truth is gnawing away somewhere deep in your subconscious, and you’re angry you fell for the lies.
    So are venting with insults.

    Covid mutates in vaccinated people too. Vaccinated air travellers spread covid around the world.
    Vaccine isn’t immunity, you still catch covid still spread it, and covid mutates inside the vaxed.
    So how is even everyone vaccinated herd immunity? It isn’t.

    If the vaccine limits severity of covid slightly and less hospitalizations, that’s great, but entirely irrelevant to stopping covid.

    Mrssea Sea says:

    That is what we have been doing. But the problem continues?

    exposingthetruth says:

    I just caught it for the second time. I have been sicker from a hard night drinking. I will admit, if I was overweight, diabetic, or a smoker it may have been terrible. I went running by day 3 and just coughed it all out. I had random cough spells for a week after. None the less, I will never comply with any of it. Get healthy and you wouldn’t need a shot or to worry. Don’t expect me to be punished or stop living because you had such poor choices. And to the unfortunate, call me heartless but I am not the one pushing eugenics like your leaders.

    Carpe Diem says:

    I don’t know if I ever caught it, but I never got symptoms, tested nor vaxxed. Call me ignorant, but I’m still alive.

    Julius Seizure says:

    Pretty much all of my friends got it independently from one another. Don’t know how that happened. I’m unvaccinated and it just gave me a sore throat for 2 days. But afterwards, I had the worst hives ever. That’s something they never tell you about COVID, I thought it was bed bugs. I still don’t see any reason to vaccinate, other than you can’t do anything if places require a vax card.

    exposingthetruth says:

    @Julius Seizure interesting! There was a few days that I thought I had bugs crawling on me and it was driving me insane. I never found any hives or bugs thought I was losing it.

    Prof Elhassani says:

    IT’S REALLY A CRUEL DISASTER FOR OUR HEALTH. I HOPE THE WORLD RECOVER VERY SOON.( FROM MOROCCO)

    Icebreaker86 says:

    Don’t worry it’s God plan he’s Son

    Jesus will come and save us all

    Prof Elhassani says:

    @Icebreaker86 WE Hope so.

    Real AOC says:

    It’s going to be really tough for California to battle this surge. I mean, they have to balance this effort with so many other important efforts, like forcing stores to have a gender-neutral toys section.

    john bees says:

    @Seth Borneman Yeah…totally not like Florida and Texas are rising…where is Tesla and Gordon Ramsey moving to again?

    Seth Borneman says:

    @john bees they are both moving for preferable tax rates. As Is widely documented. Are you a child?

    john bees says:

    @Seth Borneman Ding ding ding. That and those covid restrictions are bad for business. Also politicians love Florida. Why listen to your own rules? Just tell the plebs one thing and kick it in Florida or Texas

    Seth Borneman says:

    @john bees most normal people care about climate and quality of life. Thus CA.

    I’m actually moving from CA back to NV shortly, so believe me I get the incentives. But for many staying in CA still makes sense.

    Lenny Fitzgerald says:

    You give more strength, to whatever you choose to focus on. Let the redeemed say so.

    TruckerExile E says:

    To all libs… Go love yourself and let’s go Brandon, I agree!!!

    Dale Hamon says:

    Let Go Cheeto…The 🤡 lost

    Carpe Diem says:

    How many of your accounts have they banned already?

    Julius Seizure says:

    @Dale Hamon At least Trump got a lot done during his term while Biden keeps saying he’s gonna do something and never do it. Y’all keep praising Biden while he’s doing far more for conservatives than the liberals.

    Dale Hamon says:

    @Julius Seizure Biden has reversed most of Cheetos accomplishments and we still have Obamacare….that alone burns the Orange FAT Out of work 🥵 Twitler

    Alicia Nelson says:

    California has been following the guidelines that’s why cases are rising just do what Florida did and remove all restrictions

    Battleneter says:

    Yea so, I am very surprised you have not learnt anything form the last two years.

    Alicia Nelson says:

    @Battleneter clearly I have states that listened to the cdc hav bad continues rise in cases but those who didn’t have had next to no cases try basic math

    Happy Happy says:

    From LA and over it. We’ve been the most strict county in the most strict state for years and the only discernible difference I’ve experienced has been negative (mental health, economics, etc.).

    Julius Seizure says:

    Most strict county in the most strict state? That can’t be right. But I hate how you gotta provide a vaccination card pretty much any event you go to in LA county.

    IVORY123100 says:

    So tired of this all ..It’s been a double whammy for me .Murphy and his laws follow me . Diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer in March of 2020 and not expected to make It through that summer. But here I am . Brain tumors miraculously vanished . Back to work . But this pandemic hasn’t vanished .. Sure like to know what my Drs and nurses faced look like !! So I can see their beautiful faces and smile

    galleon30000 says:

    .If you allow the state to break the law because of an emergency, they will always create an emergency to break the law!

    Loraine Salmon says:

    If the situation is so dier, why don’t you call back the healthy unvaccinated nurses and doctors to work. It doesn’t make sense.

    Foghorn Leghorn says:

    If this reporters eyes were any closer together omg 😱 👁👁😂😂😂

    Wisefamilie says:

    Dave and Busters should replace the prizes in the claw games with At Home Rapid Tests. lol

    Elmer Kilred says:

    Let’s Go, Darwin!

    Klondik says:

    Just go to work sick 😷 it’s okay, your can do it! Even if you’re working with the sick.
