    people wont even take the most basic of measures against a contagious disease like wearing a mask because of freedumbs.

    you think borders are the problem and closing them would make the slightest bit of difference?

    as people get reinfected over and over by the plague because of their freedumbs and overall immunity weakens things like this will only become more common through mutation and adaptation of other viruses such as this one.

    then of course, you would have to vaccinate against it in the hopes of at least containing/curbing the spread. if you want an idea of how that would go *gestures broadly at everything*

    this is where the whole its just a flu mentality and letting contagious diseases run rampant as if theyll just go away because you cant be bothered to deal with the inconvenience to you personally gets you, this is where being a rat licker gets you.

    this is only the beginning. remember when they were saying there wouldnt be a second wave of corona??

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/2022/05/13/metro/new-omicron-variant-ba2121-has-taken-over-massachusetts-heres-what-you-need-know/ 

    The virus that causes COVID-19 didn’t change much in the early days of the pandemic. Then the number of mutations started increasing, and scientists began using an alphabet soup of letters and numbers to distinguish them.
    But nothing prepared them for the dizzying array of strains that the mighty Omicron variant has been spitting out.
    As one of the newest Omicron variants, BA.2.12.1, overtakes its predecessors, here’s what you need to know.

    First things, first. The
    original Omicron variant
    , called B.1.1.529, emerged in South Africa last year and spread quickly around the world. By late January, another Omicron subvariant, BA.1.1, already was dominant in the United States.

    Fast forward to this spring. The BA.2.12.1 subvariant from the fast-moving Omicron lineage was first detected in New York in March, along with its sibling, BA.2.1. These two subvariants are estimated to spread 23 percent to 27 percent faster than their predecessor, the BA.2 variant. Consider that in early March, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that BA.2 accounted for about 26 percent of all cases in the US, and BA.2.12.1 accounted for less than 1 percent. By May 7, BA.2 had roughly doubled its prevalence, to about 56 percent of all cases — but BA.2.12.1 had exploded and now accounts for 43 percent of the country’s COVID cases. (It’s about 40 percent of New England cases, and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard estimates that it has taken over in Massachusetts, accounting for nearly 70 percent of cases.)
    Will BA.2.12.1 elbow out its sibling for top spot?
    Scientists tracking Omicron say that’s already happening. Yet its extraordinary speed, fueling another rapid rise in cases, is puzzling researchers because its structure is not all that different from its predecessor’s. “It’s almost like having somebody who runs a 2:30 marathon changing their sneakers and all of a sudden running a two-hour marathon. It doesn’t make sense,” said Dr. Jacob Lemieux, an infectious disease specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital, who is also coleader of the viral variants program at the Massachusetts Consortium on Pathogen Readiness.Is BA.2.12.1 better at evading immunity?
    Yes, it appears it has an increased capacity to evade antibodies triggered by a previous Omicron infection and vaccination
    , according to recent research by Chinese scientists that has not been peer reviewed. Dr. Pedro Piedra, a professor of molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, compares these virus variants to a leopard that can change its spots to help it avoid detection.
    “As these viruses go through the population once, it becomes harder to reinfect the population that already has a level of protection against that variant,” he said. “What we are seeing is these rapid changes that are enough for this variant to take a foothold and cause infection.”What about the level of illness from BA.2.12.1?
    While this latest subvariant doesn’t appear to be causing the flood of hospitalizations that the original Omicron wave did over the winter, hospitalizations are slowly rising again as cases mount in Massachusetts.
    “I and many other people had expected that as treatments become more available, as vaccinations are more widespread, we would see a decoupling of the case counts and hospitalizations and we have to a large extent,” Lemieux said. “However it hasn’t been a complete decoupling that was hoped for. So we will have to keep a close eye on the hospitalization count.”Are there yet more Omicron variants out there?
    Yes. Meet BA.4 and BA.5, the newest offshoots identified by scientists in South Africa. The two subvariants have rapidly replaced Omicron’s BA.2 line, reaching more than 50 percent of sequenced cases in South Africa from the first week of April 2022 onward, a team of researchers there recently reported in a study that has not been peer reviewed. The scientists also reported “early signs” of rising hospital admissions in some of the country’s provinces. They said there are signs BA.4 and BA.5 may be even more wily about evading immunity. As far as causing more severe disease, they said the jury is still out.

    I wouldn't click any link to any video site that was posted entirely without context, regardless of the site. I might watch an embedded video if it looked like it was actually going to be a meme.

    You can thank your own country for this, one of the four companies that made the baby food for the US, and in the US was closed down because their product was making babies sick, profit over safety.

    "In February, Abbott Laboratories, maker of popular baby formulas, closed a manufacturing facility in Sturgis, Michigan, after it recalled infant formula products when a federal investigation started after four babies taking the formula developed bacterial infections, two of whom died. Abbott has said there is no link between its formula and the illnesses."

    "Some Republicans have falsely suggested shortages are down to the Biden administration sending baby formula to undocumented immigrants. Steven L Schooner, a professor of government procurement law at George Washington University told the New York Times that the amount purchased for migrants, “is statistically the equivalent of zero in terms of market share”."

    Also, letting big companies in charge of the supply chain is bad:

    "Four companies control about 90% of the US baby formula market – Abbott (which accounts for nearly half the market), Mead Johnson Nutrition, Nestlé USA and Perrigo. Only 2% of formula is imported and FDA rules make it very hard for new companies to enter the market."

    I've been waiting for you, America. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left for you I was but the immigrant, but now I am the destination.
