It seems we are always getting some sort of bad news surrounding this pandemic….but with all that some are trying to “re-open” the country so we can get back to “normal”.
But first another sad piece of news about a murder linked to Covid-19…..
A woman, her adult son, and husband have been charged in the fatal shooting of a security guard who refused to let her daughter enter a Family Dollar in Michigan because she wasn’t wearing a face mask to protect against transmission of the coronavirus. Calvin Munerlyn was shot Friday at the store near downtown Flint a short time after telling Sharmel Teague’s daughter she had to leave, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said. Teague, 45, argued with Munerlyn, 43, before leaving, the AP reports. Two men later came to the store. Teague; her husband, Larry Teague, 44; and Ramonyea Bishop, 23; are charged with first-degree premeditated murder and gun crimes. Sharmel Teague has been arrested. Police were looking for her husband and son. No information has been released about the daughter, who has not been charged.
Larry Teague also is charged with violating Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s order mandating that all customers and employees wear face coverings inside grocery stores, Leyton said. “It is important that the governor’s order be respected and adhered to, and for someone to lose their life over it is beyond comprehension,” Leyton said earlier Monday in a statement. On Thursday, protesters, some carrying guns, rallied inside the state Capitol, calling for coronavirus-related restrictions to be lifted. On Sunday night, about 150 people attended a candlelight vigil for Munerlyn. A makeshift memorial was started outside the Family Dollar on Monday. Munerlyn’s mother, Bernadett, asked everyone to “listen to the law, listen to the governor.”
I have something to say about all these mental midgets that want to infect the rest of us because they want it all their way….these worthless lumps of manure cannot go away fast enough.
They are BSing the country with their stupidity of “back to normal”….it is NOT about the country but all about them…..the spineless slugs of American society.
Now there is an interesting term……”back to normal”……but now for the “bad news”…..
There is the possibility that this strain could be with us for around 2 years….
Even as governments are loosening restrictions put in place to contain the spread of the coronavirus, a new report warns they should be planning for the worst. That includes, USA Today reports, the possibility of “no vaccine availability or herd immunity.” In fact, the study found, everyone should “be prepared for possible periodic resurgences of disease” over as long as two years. The University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy produced the study, with the help of pandemic experts from Harvard and Tulane universities. They analyzed data from this outbreak and eight major influenza pandemics, starting in the 1700s, per CBS. Seven of the influenza pandemics had a second significant peak about six months after the first, and some of them had “smaller waves of cases over the course of 2 years.”
This pandemic probably will last 18 to 24 months, the authors said, partly because of the time it takes for 70% of the population to develop immunity—the level they say will be needed to achieve herd immunity. The report detailed three possible scenarios: a major resurgence of infections, worse than the current crisis, before the end of the year; a resurgence, followed by a series of smaller waves into next year; and a “slow burn,” with no pattern evident in the transmission of the coronavirus. The third possibility hasn’t occurred in the other pandemics. But “the virus caught the global community off guard, and its future course is still highly unpredictable,” the report says. So it’s not clear yet how the outbreak will be brought under control, the researchers said.
This is not something that should be anxiously awaited…..
Please keep your masks and sterilization stuff in the cupboard for they may be needed again….and soon.
Be well….Be Safe…….
