Wow, so covid cases are shooting up, hospitalizations are going up, but our politicians are promoting the idea that covid is no longer a pandemic. The pandemic phase is over, no one has to wear masks! Totally irresponsible politicians more concerned about their next election and offending the psycho denialists than they are about public health. How pathetic.ReplyDelete
