And now the Supreme Court is considering cases about COVID restrictions, but one of the Trump appointed goons won't even follow their own mask mandate. Great.

Omicron explosion spurs nationwide breakdown of services
https://apnews.com/article/coronavirus- ... c77488195a
Ambulances in Kansas speed toward hospitals then suddenly change direction because hospitals are full. Employee shortages in New York City cause delays in trash and subway services and diminish the ranks of firefighters and emergency workers. Airport officials shut down security checkpoints at the biggest terminal in Phoenix and schools across the nation struggle to find teachers for their classrooms.

The current explosion of omicron-fueled coronavirus infections in the U.S. is causing a breakdown in basic functions and services — the latest illustration of how COVID-19 keeps upending life more than two years into the pandemic.

COVID-19 update: Florida breaks daily case record again with 76,887 new infections; hospitalizations pass 9,000


Capitol attack panel investigates Trump over potential criminal conspiracy
Messages between Mark Meadows and others suggest the Trump White House coordinated efforts to stop Joe Biden’s certification
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/202 ... -biden-win
The fact that the select committee has messages suggesting the Trump White House directed Republican members of Congress to execute a scheme to stop Biden’s certification is significant as it could give rise to the panel considering referrals for potential crimes, the sources said.

The select committee believes, the sources said, that Trump may be culpable for an obstruction charge given he failed for hours to intervene to stop the violence at the Capitol perpetrated by his supporters in his name.

But the select committee is also looking at whether Trump oversaw an unlawful conspiracy that involved coordination between the “political elements” of the White House plan communicated to Republican lawmakers and extremist groups that stormed the Capitol, the sources said.

All media are fake. COVID is just the flu. I know a guy who took Viagra and it made him immune to COVID. I know another guy who took vitamin D and now he has a really big peepee and can't get sick.

Almost as good as the COVID facts being spouted by the Obama appointed goon and Clinton appointed goon during arguements.

Yeah, I'm not shocked. Doesn't Fauci's daughter work for Twitter? Fascists do what fascists do.

And he gets paid pretty handsomely too. It's not the first time that he's been criticized. I'm pretty sure that he had more than enough critics back during the Aids/HIV days, with legitimate gripes from that community.

Good illustration by another person who is actually in the field, not a YouTube expert.

We have up to 20 hour wait times in our lobbies. Pre-Covid if someone waited longer than an hour we started to stress.

They specifically say in the article that "if she means hospitalized" it is wildly inaccurate. But she didn't say hospitalized. She said "We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition and many on ventilators.”

And the article you shared also says, "So Sotomayor is not wrong to suggest the rate of pediatric admissions is cause for concern. On Monday, the American Academy of Pediatrics reported a sharp rise in pediatric cases, with many of the children unvaccinated."

I agree that she was not very clear in her point, and needed to be more specific. Still not sure how that makes her a goon?

I have a friend's mom that has been in the ER for 5 days awaiting a bed due to 3 bad heart valves... they are too crowded to admit her.

https://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_argum ... 4_kifl.pdf

From the transcript, emphasis added

"JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR: -- counsel, those numbers show that Omicron is as deadly and causes as much serious disease in the unvaccinated as Delta did. The numbers, look at the hospitalization rates that are going on. We have more affected people in the country today than we had a year ago in January. We have hospitals that are almost at full capacity with people severely ill on ventilators. We have over 100,000 children which we've never had before, in -- in serious condition and many on ventilators."

The term "serious condition" is used to describe a patients status in a hospital.

First hit on Google:

Serious - Vital signs may be unstable and not within normal limits. Patient is acutely ill. Indicators are questionable. Critical - Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits. Patient may be unconscious.

Maybe he watched Face the Nation.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/full-trans ... ry-2-2022/

DR. GOTTLIEB: Cloth masks aren't going to provide a lot of protection, that's the bottom line. This is an airborne illness. We now understand that, and a cloth mask is not going to protect you from a virus that spreads through airborne transmission. It could protect better through droplet transmission, something like the flu, but not something like this coronavirus. We have to recognize this has not been a benign disease in young children. There's a perception that young children haven't been hit hard to date from coronavirus. That's just not true. We've recorded more than 600 pediatric deaths from COVID over the last two years. To put that in perspective, we have one death from flu and the pediatric population last year and so far, two this year. So, over a period of time when we've done a very good job protecting children generally from respiratory infections, we've recorded more than 600 deaths from COVID against three deaths from flu. So, this is affecting children, and particularly young children. This new strain could have a predilection again for the upper airway, which could be a bigger challenge in young kids because of the way that it binds to the airway cells. In terms of going back to school, I think the prerogative clearly is to try to get schools reopened. We shouldn't be doing preemptive school closures, in my opinion, but there will be situations where we have reactive school closures, when there are large outbreaks
