Republican Nitwits Wrong Again about Coronavirus. Their stupidity Continues Unabated.

A summary from the Washington Post, October 14, 2020:

  • U.S. coronavirus cases are rising again, seeding fears that an anticipated cold-weather surge in infections has arrived. The seven-day average of new cases has hit record highs in 20 states since Saturday, while the seven-day average for new infections across the country surpassed 50,000 for the first time since August, according to data analyzed by The Washington Post.
  • Scientists pushing to allow the novel coronavirus to circulate freely among healthy young people until herd immunity is reached have found a receptive audience inside the White House. But top infectious-disease experts say the idea is unworkable and dangerous.
  • Nine states are experiencing double-digit increases in the number of patients hospitalized because of coronavirus complications. Wyoming and Montana reported the highest inpatient rolling average, followed by North Dakota, New Mexico, Delaware, New York, Ohio, Michigan and Idaho.

What further elaboration is needed? Trump and his Republican minions continue to flaunt the experts’ call to wear face masks and practice social distancing. Reliable and easy-to-acquire testing remains unavailable. Progress over the spring and summer in bringing coronavirus under control is being overtaken by rising numbers.

Sweeping the Republicans out of office in the November elections, more than ever, is critical to national survival.
