    It's a deadly flu, and before covid-19 around 40-60K Americans died from the regular flu every year.... But thanks to Fauci and his friends are the NIH we got Covid-19...

    But what's worse than the flu is how governments around the world are treating it's citizenry over it. It's PLANdemic designed to give NWO deep state commies the "reason" to imprison their people and make draconian laws and rules... It's about a complete takeout of freedom loving peoples around the world. And it's most definitely coordinated.

    I don't know. Being in the Top 15% of all countries for worst case rate doesn't seem like anything to brag about.

    That is obviously going to change as these other countries go through their Delta waves.

    When you don't know what happens by not having long drug trials example number 1,000,001: Just an abstract but if true shows these shots shouldn't be given out like chicklets, especially to young people.

    https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/abs/10.1161/circ.144.suppl_1.10712

    "This report summarizes those results. A total of 566 pts, aged 28 to 97, M:F ratio 1:1 seen in a preventive cardiology practice had a new PULS test drawn from 2 to 10 weeks following the 2nd COVID shot and was compared to the previous PULS score drawn 3 to 5 months previously pre- shot. Baseline IL-16 increased from 35=/-20 above the norm to 82 =/- 75 above the norm post-vac; sFas increased from 22+/- 15 above the norm to 46=/-24 above the norm post-vac; HGF increased from 42+/-12 above the norm to 86+/-31 above the norm post-vac. These changes resulted in an increase of the PULS score from 11% 5 yr ACS risk to 25% 5 yr ACS risk. At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose of vac.We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."

    Rick is completely lost and hopelessly too far gone. He isn't worth acknowledging.

    Here is Michigan's hospitalizations over the last 20+ months. Just a coincidence I'm sure...

    Of Course, all else equal, viruses tend to spread more in the winter, as conditions are more hospitable to them spreading. Covid shouldn't be any different.

    The difference is clearly covid can and does spread through all seasons, unlike most colds and flu.

    Exactly, covid is seasonal. See, that wasn’t so hard, was it.

    Depends on how you define "seasonal". It isn't like most colds and flu that are almost exclusive to the cooler seasons. To the extent is tends to peak more in colder weather, it could be just based on people's habits and being indoors.

    Covid-19 vaccines remain highly effective at keeping people alive and out of the hospital, but new U.S. data add further support to the argument that the shots aren’t preventing infections as much as they once did.

    Unvaccinated people were about five times more likely to test positive for the virus than the unvaccinated in the week starting Sept. 26, down from about 15 times less likely in May, according to the latest age-adjusted data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which were updated Monday.

    Frankly this board was missing some of this absurdity when Fever left after “Biden stole the election.” Rick has stepped it up in his absence as our resident Qspiracy follower. Keeps us apprised of what the crazies on the right are up to.

    Florida's new case rate at peak (which lasted for approximately 3 weeks in August) was 270% the rate in New York (and 160% the rate in Michigan). So, I guess the answer to your question is three months ago (also the highest rate of new cases yesterday is Wyoming).
