NOW IT'S "DELTA" VIRUS, TOMORROW...?

How much Latin alphabet do you know?

“COVID Supremacy” in the news has all but ended. Box scores for the dead and infected no longer dominate screens, entire newscasts fail to even mention the word virus. Just before it became a non-issue, the Dreaded Delta Disease variant was the big problem, and even that has faded from the Ministry of Mass News reports. Does that mean the Delta variant is the problem, or isn’t, or was the problem, or are most of us free from COVID 19 infection, so we won?

Reflect now, with the worst behind us—when was the last time you wore disposable rubber gloves? Was it always an unneeded myth? Does the “more contagious” Delta variant require less safeguards? Should the social-distance rule become nine feet? It should if it’s more contagious now—stand clear! The wipe-all-your-groceries frenzy was so bad for months you couldn't find disinfectant wipes or isopropyl alcohol anywhere. Remember that? And people were asking if they had to wipe their mail... maybe if you just wiped the outside of boxes the inside of the box would be OK because it sat so long the virus would no longer be viable. Were questions about viruses on surfaces, and wipes, none of which you see anymore... is it because it was a scam then and still is now?

If the Delta variant is more infectious we must stand more than 6 feet apart now, wear extra masks like they used to say, wash your hands twice as often or buy disinfectant wipes and wipe all the groceries like we were doing—or did that ever make any sense and if not when will they apologize...

I do remember the abject bottomless fear injected into the whole thing by idle empty speculation on TV where news should have appeared. We were truly terrified the virus would reach out and “get us.” We were all doomed, or facing doom, only wipes and masks and isolation stood between us and an eternity of being dead.

The American public is well aware we’re not getting full information on the virus. For one thing the government-controlled database on this (VAERS, the virus adverse effects reporting system) is suppressed or distorted. But for another the D variant everybody says is more contagious—but is it more deadly—is not even addressed. It's more infectious meaning you get it more easily but is it about to unleash the disaster New York went through in the beginning with people dropping dead in the halls? Bright people want to know, but have become so numb to the incessant grandstanding rants they can barely give it a glance.
