Is anyone else as done with COVID antivaxxers as I am? If at all possible, they have made things even worse in the last few months than they already were.
The refusal of antivaxxers to take the vaccines has seen thousands of them wind up in ICU’s around the World. And now, this has started to harm others.
Because there are so many people in ICU’s and hospital beds with COVID, hospitals have been forced to turn away patients as they have no room. And now people are dying. Ray DeMonia is one. He suffered a cardiac emergency but was unable to get treatment in time. 43 hospitals were contacted before one with an available bed was found.
Forty three hospitals.
That means forty two hospitals had no space.
Daniel Wilkinson is another. He had gallstone pancreatitis, and would have lived had there been space available at nearby hospitals. But again, there were no empty beds close enough to him.
If instead of bitching and moaning about their rights to be disease vectors, antivaxxers and antimaskers had kept up their end of the social contract, DeMonia and Wilkinson would still be alive. I doubt they’ll be the last to die because no hospital beds are available.
Adding another irritating wrinkle, some pillocks have been using ivermectin to treat/prevent COVID. Not only is there no good evidence it works, some of these morons have wound up in hospital from ivermectin overdoses, putting an additional strain on an already overloaded system.
Nicki Minaj, in a massively ignorant tweet that has earned her a suspension from Twitter, claimed that a friend of her cousin was due to get married but his testicles swelled up from the vaccine, leading his fiancée to call off the wedding. When asked about this, medical experts including Doctor Fauci pointed out that that was not plausible, and that a Sexually Transmitted Infection is a much more likely explanation. It also explains why the fiancée called off the wedding.
Stick to rapping, Nicki. At least you’re good at that.
The vaccines reduce breakthrough infections, hospitalisations and deaths. There is no longer an excuse for those who can get them to do so.
