Dr. Michael Osterholm warned viewers of Morning Joe that a sharp spike in Covid-19 infections in the coming three to four weeks means “we’re going to have a hard time keeping everyday life operating.” The Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and member of President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Board appeared on MSNBC Thursday morning to discuss the sharp rise in coronavirus cases brought about by the Omicron variant and new CDC guidelines that shorten the recommended time to quarantine for asymptomatic individuals following a positive test.

That is why the push for home test kits-to ramp up the case numbers again since the PCR tests are being decommissioned tomorrow. The Dems are running the 2020 Covid playbook again page for page! Gov DeSantis will not shut Florida down again, so we can expect a confrontation very soon!

Could not care less about a 'case'. Really? A bizarre spike in demand for COVID test kits (based on PCR testing that has notoriously proven over, and over, and over, and over to generate false positives) annnnd 'poof' an upsurge in COVID 'cases'. With variants that have symptoms no worse than the common cold now? Who. Friggin'. Cares.

The effects of omicron will not cause everyday life to get hard. The politically-driven overreaction (culling all who test positive into quarantine, whether they are sick or not) will cause a new shortage of workers everywhere. This asinine lockdown will not even try to let "essential" jobs continue, and I'm not sure I will even try to respect it.

Imagine the same attitude in these previous events in American History: 1700s: "I'm sorry, General Washington, you won't be able to cross the Delaware because several of your troops have tested positive (asymptomatic)." 1800s: "Looks like we're going to have to turn the entire wagon train around and head back East...our scout, camp cook, and six of the kids ain't feelin' so good." 1900s: "Sure, the Japanese bombed half our fleet, but we'll get them ooooh sometime next year when we've got enough masks for our troops so they don't spread the virus. This is a year or two that will live in infamy! The only thing we have to fear is friggin' Fauci."

Keep your vitamins D and C very high, that will help avoid getting infected. If you've already had the disease, you're home free. Beware, the "missing flu of 2020" went NOWHERE, and a significant subset of "COVID infections" were actually seasonal influenza. But you say, "I took the test and it was positive." Means little. Their test cannot tell a number of other coronaviruses from the ChiCom bioweapon. And a lot of them just give false positives. But, this is a minority of people who "got COVID". Most really did have it, but not all of them, even with proper symptoms. These are the "I got COVID twice" folks....who didn't get COVID twice, but the flu once and COVID once. Dr. McCollough in his long "Grand Rounds" video is very adamant on that, says that there are NO cases of re-infection. And that actually fits the real science.

Interesting theory, #25, and maybe that's what these idiots are thinking....but the great majority of these "sick" folks, these "cases" ARE VACCINATED. Kinda proves that there is no reason in the world to get the vaccine, or force it, since it is obvious that getting infected and transmitting the virus is not hindered by these mRNA shots.

As the United States prepared to ring in 2022, the nation has set yet another record for daily coronavirus cases, New Year’s Eve celebrations were scaled back and travel plans were disrupted because of the pandemic.

With just hours left in 2021, President Joe Biden is facing moving into his second year in office with a stubbornly low approval rating, and an array of major national problems that could further dent his popularity.

The president's approval rating has failed to improve in recent weeks and he is also facing a difficult new year with unresolved issues, including Democrats' attempts to pass the

Cable news ratings are down across the board this week — traditionally one of the slowest in news — with one exception: Fox News show The Five, which drew a whopping 3.12 million total viewers and 406,000 in the demo.

But in the week between Christmas and New Year’s, when many cable news hosts are on vacation and their show are hosted by substitutes, it’s particularly impressive. For example: Tucker Carlson

CHICAGO — More than a year after the vaccine was rolled out, new cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. have soared to their highest level on record at over 265,000 per day on average, a surge driven largely by the highly contagious omicron variant.

The fast-spreading mutant version of the virus has cast a pall over Christmas and New Year’s, forcing communities to scale back or call off their festivities

MilliporeSigma, a brand formed by Germany’s Merck KGaA, will build a new factory in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the Defense Department announced as the U.S. hit a high record of 489,267 COVID cases on Wednesday. While the contract gives the company three years to complete the facility, it is not immediately clear when it will ramp up to full production, which is expected to pump out 83.3 million tests per month.
