  1. Alternative facts says:

    The surge in Covid-19 cases fueled by the Delta variant and vaccine hesitancy has now led to increasing rates of hospitalizations and deaths.
    Data from Johns Hopkins University shows:
    — The average number of new Covid-19 cases each day the past week was 32,278. That’s a 66% jump from the average daily rate the previous week, and 145% higher than the rate from two weeks ago.
    — An average of 258 Americans died from Covid-19 each day this past week — up 13% from the rate of daily deaths the previous week.
    — And 24,923 people are hospitalized with Covid-19, according to data from the US Department of Health and Human Services. That’s a 26% increase from last week and a 50% increase from two weeks ago.
    There’s a common theme among those behind the worsening Covid-19 numbers, said Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
    “This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” Walensky said at a Covid-19 briefing Friday. https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/19/health/us-coronavirus-monday/index.html

  2. Aiding and abetting says:

    “Large study finds COVID-19 is linked to a substantial drop in intelligence” https://www.psypost.org/2021/07/large-study-finds-covid-19-is-linked-to-a-substantial-drop-in-intelligence-61577
    “People who have recovered from COVID-19 tend to score significantly lower on an intelligence test compared to those who have not contracted the virus, according to new research published in The Lancet journal EClinicalMedicine. The findings suggest that the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 can produce substantial reductions in cognitive ability, especially among those with more severe illness.”
