Eventually, The Omicron will infect everyone, so we need to do two weeks of lockdown in order to flatten the curve and prevent the hospitals from getting overwhelmed. By doing this, the hospitals will be able to treat everyone, and The Science will have time to work on a vaccine to get us back to normal.
Yes. We just time-traveled back to March 2020.
Federal health authorities in America have said the Omicron Covid-19 variant is so contagious it is likely most people in the US will be infected, and compared the pandemic to a “natural disaster”.
Authorities said even as Omicron shatters records for new cases, they are hopeful the surge will quickly subside, and said the US needs to focus on ensuring hospital systems do not collapse amid the surge.
“I think it’s hard to process what’s actually happening right now, which is [that] most people are going to get Covid, all right?” said Janet Woodcock, the acting head of the Food and Drug Administration. “What we need to do is make sure the hospitals can still function … [that] transportation, other essential services are not disrupted while this happens.”
Woodcock made the comments at a Senate hearing where senators, especially Republicans, harshly questioned administration officials tasked with responding to the pandemic, including Woodcock, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rochelle Walensky, and the president’s chief medical adviser, Anthony Fauci.
I don’t know why the video of these bizarre statements are not being spammed on Twitter – my guess is that Twitter is deleting the clip, like they are deleting the clip of the Pfizer CEO saying the vax doesn’t work at all. But CNN has the clip in this clip (a clip that won’t get deleted).
So, there you have it.
You heard the lady.
Get your boosters, and remember: boosting your kids is an act of love.
(Please never forget all those conservative commentators who told you that Omicron meant we were going back to normal. If these people are not malicious, they are stupid, and have no idea what is going on at all.)
