Transparency is important on this one. IMO
do you have a link for this?
COVID didn't hit the ground as the most contagious in human history. Measles, off the top of my head, is more contagious.
agreed, but timing is key to make sure you sign up the facts completely before burning anyone
I didn’t say it was the most contagious.
not the most infectious either: Ebola.
I didn’t say it was the most infectious.
but one of.
That’s why the cdc was saying in early April over 100 million Americans had already been infected
Of the number of viruses on this planet capable of infecting humans, you think every one of them has a known cross over animal, and early case example?
But also why the hang up on the wet market? I doubt this is web market in origin. It is more likely guano farming in origin.
Was this a cut up video? Or is he just one of the idiots referred to in in the last couple of days..
He isn't an expert on virology and public health. So yea, he's one of those idiots.
You don't have to be an expert to give accurate information out. Actually the experts aren't always accurate either so maybe inaccuracy is the norm.
But he has been well known for gaffs and not being an expert on the subject often leads to inaccurate information. You don't listen to me when you want economic advise because I am going to tell you shit that is completely wrong, even if someone tells me the right thing.
Why? Because I am an idiot on the subject.
Everyone is inaccurate, as you say, even the "experts". It is the nature of science and knowledge.
he's incorrect. you are very unlikely to need hospitalization, but you can get it
You are correct, you don't have to be an expert, you just have to say what is true:
"This vaccine is not 100% effective, which is why everyone must get it. This is a public health concern and we are all in this together. Anyone who does not get vaccinated risks infecting someone who was vaccinated, risking them a serious infection or death. Because this vaccine isn't 100% effective."
also, no vaccine is 100% effective. not one.
we may be hearing more about a new gamma variant out of Illinois, which is rapidly displacing the delta variant there in new cases and is having worse outcomes than delta. no word on vaccine efficacy against it.
Imagine the headlines if Trump had said this. Would have been 24 hour news for at least a week.
He would've been banned from social media for spreading false information
we live in a time when anything not part of the GOP party line is CRT, communist, socialist, and "devisive." so I don't give a shit about imagining what I already experience.
The CRT shit is dumb as hell. Fox News needs to give it up.
