A Covid Question

Unvaccinated people are about six times more likely to test positive than vaccinated people, nine times more likely to be hospitalized, and 14 times more likely to die from COVID-related complications.

Forty-seven million eligible American adults and more than twelve million teens are still not fully vaccinated and remain at highest risk of disease.

The seven-day average of daily covid-related deaths is 1,000 per day.

Some 163,000 Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. could have been prevented by vaccination since June this year and the virus is one of the leading causes of death in all age groups, according to research by the Kaiser Family Foundation, as cases soar amid concerns the new omicron variant will trigger another wave of infections. Some 163,000 Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. could have been prevented by vaccination since June this year and the virus is one of the leading causes of death in all age groups, according to research by the Kaiser Family Foundation, as cases soar amid concerns the new omicron variant will trigger another wave of infections.

Three-quarters of unvaccinated Americans who voted for former President Donald Trump in 2020 say they’ll never get any dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, a recent poll from The Economist and YouGov suggests.

The survey of about 1,500 adults showed 75% of Trump voters — despite the former president’s recent public support for vaccinations and the booster shot — say they “do not plan on ever getting any shots of any COVID-19 vaccine.”

Trump cultists believe that they are demonstrating their fealty to Trump and his MAGA movement by refusing to get vaccinated and wear masks.

They are being emboldened, enabled, goaded, and egged on by an array of political leaders, media celebrities, and online demagogues who are spreading misinformation, disinformation, conspiracy theories, and lies with such alacrity and speed that it is dizzying to contemplate the consequences.

Many of these anti-vax and anti- mandate spokespeople  know better. In typical hypocritical fashion, some have even gotten vaccinated despite their anti-vax rhetoric

The question:

Are Trump zealots and fanatics subjecting themselves to human sacrifice in the name of Trumpism?
