Why do not we still overcome the pandemic? I know I'm not the only commentator to provoke a shield lifting, highlighting the partisan nature of the vaccine opposition. Let us look at the investigation last October by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), which showed that 60% of non-American vaccinated declared themselves Republicans, compared to only 17% who were Democrats.

A Second Person Has Been 'Cured' of HIV Without Treatment—Here's What That Means, According to Researchers

  A Second Person Has Been 'Cured' of HIV Without Treatment—Here's What That Means, According to Researchers The 30-year-old woman has no traces of active infection, even without having had any treatment. It is a rare case, happening only once before. The case of the 30-year-old woman, who has not been publicly identified, is described in a new report published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The woman was diagnosed with HIV in 2013, according to the study, and now shows no active signs of infection or intact HIV in large numbers of her cells. This, the researchers say, implies that she may have been able to achieve what's called a "sterilizing cure" of her HIV infection.

But how did the policy have been fierce to undermine what should have been a medical miracle? I would hold two great lies that propagate republican politicians and the extreme right media. First of all, there is the assertion that coronavirus is not so bad. It might have been thought that this assertion would cease to be brandished now that more than 800,000 Americans died from COVID since Rush Limbaugh, one of the figures of the conservative line, compared it to a simple cold. And yet, she still rages.

Republican Obstruction

Policies such as the Senator of Florida Marco Rubio qualifies the reaction to Omicron of "irrational hysteria" on the ground that the variant causes relatively few hospitalizations among the entirely vaccinated people. Rubio quickly spends on the last part of this sentence, whose KFF study states that it has escaped millions of non-vaccinated Republicans, who say they do not worry about a disease that should instead worry them at most Top point.

  'Very unsettling': Scientists see troubling signs in humans spreading COVID-19 to deer Humans have infected wild deer with COVID-19 in a handful of states, and there’s evidence that the coronavirus has been spreading among deer.Scientists swabbed the nostrils of white-tailed deer in Ohio and found evidence that humans had spread the coronavirus to deer at least six times, according to a study published last month in Nature.

Second lie: vaccination is ineffective. "If the reminders work, how is the first doses do not walk?" Tweeted Republican members of the Legal Commission of the House of Representatives. What they wanted to point out, I suppose, is the fact that Omicron causes a number of contaminations in vaccinated people, while ignoring the evidence that contaminated vaccinated people are much less likely than the non-vaccinated to be hospitalized - or die.

Republican obstruction with regard to vaccination does not result from consistent ideology, but is a question of power. A successful vaccine campaign would have been a victory for the Biden administration, so it was necessary to sap them using all the arguments available. The success of this destructive policy with regard to vaccines is horrifying. It seems to accredit the idea that the most perfect cynicism, professed even at the price of the life of your own supporters, pay.

Omicron vs. Delta: How the 2 COVID-19 Variants Compare, According to Experts and Research .
What to know about the symptoms, severity, and transmissibility of the two strains.The Delta variant of COVID-19 is no longer the dominant cause of infections in the US. Now, just weeks after its was identified in South Africa—and subsequently named a "variant of concern" by the World Health Organization (WHO)—Omicron accounts for the majority of COVID-19 cases in the US.
