More complete double talk from the government. Fauci and others on the left lambaste Paul about his view on masks and the idea of naturally acquired immunity and now they turn around and say exactly what he was arguing back then (and the talking heads and senators and congress people on the left have been abusing him over).
On the flip side, are things really that much better? I took a look at Colorado's data the other day (May 10) and compared it against last year on the same date. There are about 25% more adults on ventilators than this time last year (492 vs. 397), There are about 25% more people in acute care hospital beds (7,113 vs. 5,732) and 6% more adult ICU patients (1,317 vs. 1,242). The only hospitalization metric that has improved is there are fewer kids on ventilators than this time last year (52 vs. 76) and by and large, they aren't vaccinated.
Nationally, case counts are 55% higher than this time last year (7-day moving average of 40,394 vs. 26,005). Deaths are lower (7-day moving average of 651 vs. 1,855). Is that decline due to the age of those getting infected, improvements in treatment or is it due to vulnerable individuals having already died off?
