My state of Mississippi s not first in many good things….and this is just yet another first in the bad column.
My state along with Texas were the first states to fully open….a decision I think was unwarranted for there was little good news around the pandemic…..and since the announcement my part of the state, the Gulf Coast has the state’s first South African variant……
State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs said a resident of Harrison County on the Mississippi Coast contracted the strain, which is believed to be more infectious. There have been more than 140 cases of the variant detected in at least 25 states.
Dobbs says the discovery of the South African variant in Mississippi is “a strong reminder that we are not remotely out of this (pandemic) and we still need to exercise some basic caution.” He advised mask-wearing and not gathering in large groups.
Sound advice….but since Mississippi is a deep Red state scientific evidence means nothing to the politicians…..it is more important to change the news to take away from all the failings of the state government.
I continue to wear my mask and social distance…..I refuse to let someone moron with the IQ of a garden slug infect me with their stupidity.
Be well….Be safe….
