A "fuck you" in 3 videos.

quote [ Just an incredible exchange.

Reporter: The White House has pledged to go beyond CDC guidance in caring for President Biden...If the White House thinks that's the right approach for the president, shouldn't that be the right approach for all Americans?

CDC Director: ]

CDC Director low key telling us we're expendable. transcript

Here in Florida our wastewater data is showing us way beyond the peak of last year's Delta surge. But, thankfully, no one cares. Monkeypox doesn't stand a chance! :P

The WHO declares monkeypox a public health emergency

quote [ The World Health Organization on Saturday declared the monkeypox outbreak a public health emergency. The move is aimed at boosting coordination and sharing of resources and information among nations. ]

Maybe a virus capable of damaging our collective herd immunity through damaging individual immune systems, wasn't the best choice to let run wild through the entire fucking population of earth. Thanks, Capitalism!

WHO: Approximately 14.9 million deaths globally were directly or indirectly associated with the COVID-19. That?s 9.5 million more deaths than reported. - And this was BEFORE the big Omicron surge of Jan 2022.

Get Ready for the Forever Plague

quote [ A pandemic that progressively weakens its host population with each successive wave is ultimately more dangerous than one that dispatches 10 per cent of the population and then vanishes. ]

That's an "uh-oh" then? Beware the collection of many bad news in one article.

Thumb via Clawmarks, because the other one was too grim.

Monkeypox outbreak in U.S. is bigger than the CDC reports. Testing is 'abysmal'

quote [ The testing system set up by the CDC actually deters doctors from ordering a monkeypox test, and many physicians aren't familiar with the disease, resulting in too few tests and little tracking. ]

Well, since Biden is handling Covid so responsibly, I'm sure we're gonna Ace this one.

Covid among Us: Viral Mobilities in Shenzhen?s Moral Geography

quote [ The connection between keeping one?s place and moral geography is as commonsensical in Chinese as it is in English. However, in Chinese, saying someone ?knows their place? (???) is a compliment, while in English the phrase is often used to insult a person?s lack of independence. ]

Found this an interesting (long) read about the logistics and perception of SARS and lockdowns in Chinas main export zone. Sounds like a pretty exhausting situation.
