Like the AZN vaccine, blood clots seem to be the issue and, though they are rare side-effects, better safe than sorry – as long as we have two shots left (PFE and MRNA). The World, on the other hand, doesn’t have two shots left – as the US and Europe have already scooped up all the PFE and MRNA vaccines that are out there for their people and that’s why India had 161,736 new cases of Covid yesterday and 879 deaths.
Don’t worry, they still have a long way to go before they beat the US as India has had just 13.7M cases to date and only 171,000 deaths while the US has 31.3M total cases and 562,000 deaths – number one in the World by miles thanks to the leadership of President Trump, who came so close to getting 4 more years to finish the job.
See, this could have been us! Imagine how great America could have been if we had continued to build on our virus cases and death count, rather than tackling the problem and reversing it the way the cowardly Biden Administration has done. And that’s what I mean about the rest of the World – there is nowhere near enough vaccines to go around and the rest of the World is now having 500,000 people PER DAY coming down with a deadly, contageous, mutating disease and we like to pretend everything is better because we got a shot? Doesn’t the S&P 500 derive almost 50% of their earnings from “the rest of the World”?
You can’t fix Covid by vaccinating one country – that’s like putting out a forest fire by putting water on one tree. It’s up to the G20 to put together a “moon shot” program to stop this virus and that will require a massive effort to get EVERYONE in the World vaccinated in the same 6 month period – only then do we close the window of opportunity for the virus to pull back and mutate in a vulnerable population until it can beat the vaccines and start spreading again – until we invent a new one and the…
