Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
For whatever reason, the state of Alaska is in sad shape with covid. Juneau, its capital, is doing better than the state as a whole but the delta variant is still surging here too. That kind of surprises- and disturbs- me, because we have a fairly high rate of vaccinations.

Does anyone care to venture a prediction regarding the virus's persistence? Back a few months I thought 2021 would be a whole lot better than last year but now I'm not even confident about 2022.

What really bothers me is that the longer we take to get ahead of the virus, the more chance it has to develop more mutations.

Willful ignorance is stupidity and in this country we have an awful lot of willful ignorance. Just this last week I discovered that two groups of people I have liked, one of them in Texas and the other in Florida, are among them.
