I have been very well educated on this subject, that is why I told you to go catch this variant, then come back and tell us all that it is nothing more than a flu.
I have three children all in the medical field (one in Medical research that deals with this virus) that has kept up on all this information.
Yes, if you catch it, you may not end up in the hospital as the previous variants, but it is still serious side affects for your long term health, which they are still researching. Not to mention the fact that it is highly contagious, where before if you were around the virus, chances were you would catch it, now you may not catch it, but pass it on to someone else which makes it more deadly for those people who are more vulnerable (auto immune deficiency issues).
The good news is that if the Omnicron Variant becomes the dominant variant in the world it will move the Covid-19 pandemic into the epidemic status, which means that is can be treated with vaccines much like the Measles, Mumps, Chicken Pox type viruses.
I agree that shutting down places that some states (mostly democrat) is not only bad move, but also fear mongering. But to be honest, with all the Bull Crap that both the far right and left have spewed out in the media about this virus, A lot of people are having a hard time knowing just what is “The Truth”.
But When the Prophet of the Lord tells people that the vaccines are safe and they should get vaccinated, I generally listen to the man, not only because he is a prophet, but the Prophet also is medical expert who actually brought in people from the various companies that created the vaccines and talked with them about the process they used, the side effects, etc. (This last part was told to me in a Missionary conference with Elder Rasband).
Then I see these so called “good LDS people” posting all this Anti-Vac/Masks crap, it causes me to wonder about people.
Reminds me of those people during Moses time when all they had to do to be saved from the snakes was to look upon the Bronze Serpent and they simply could not or would not do it to save themselves.
Sorry, being a little judgmental here… My apologizes for offending anyone’s sensitivities.
BTW, You are wrong about the players, not all of them are vaccinated, as per a comment Pope made to the press that he had to make some changes based on the players vaccination status.
