    1. @Demetria Karnavas My brother-in-law is a construction supervisor in Louisiana and is currently overseeing 5 COVID expansions in hospitals in southern Louisiana.

    2. @flamingo boot Help me feel pity for the put upon, misunderstood and unappreciated white guy, a card-carrying member of America’s beleaguered oppressed majority. I’ll contact the NAACP.

  1. this got so political that all these trumpers will get vaccinated and won’t tell their own spouses.

    1. They are getting vaccinated here by calling places and showing up in disguises and such. Hilarious but also kind of sad they feel they have to do that.

    2. @YouTube Censorship Sux Yes, from their busy body and abusive peers, people feel like they do. Stop the diminishing.

    New Zealand finished the Covid race with 26 deaths 1 year ago.
    China finished the race on 14 January 2021 with 4,636 deaths.
    America is still struggling mid way through the race with 631,816 Covid deaths with 600 more each day.

    1. You hit the nail on the head and now Joe has over 2000 Covid deaths on his hands. He has the blood of these people on his hands. How did we let this get away from us? Joe was given solid ground on which to stand to continue our COVID-19 vaccinations and suddenly things are going off the rails.

    2. @T. R. Campbell because the Gqp has turned into a death cult. Quit your fake “aw shucks whut happened ” nonsense.

    3. I get your point, but in case you didn’t know China has Delta cases in 5 provinces. One city has been shut down and it’s leaders has been arrested for not doing enough to stop it. Deathsantis should be glad the Chinese aren’t in charge……yet ……

    1. @Lucius Kiirus your uninformed when it comes to schools. Just look at whatever your local district website says when it comes to masks and distancing. Bet you all my money that your WRONG

    2. @Lucius Kiirus You are a disgrace to America and your neighbors !? I am so thankful we don’t have your kind, spreading misinformation and lies in our country.

    3. I don’t trust the vaccine as it was rushed, and could hyrt you in the long run 10 years from now. Maybe my views will change next year

    4. @GreenCaliforina how could it hurt you in 10 years? Where did you get that information from? Care to clue us in?
      You’re part of the problem with your nonsense

    5. @Darhay Voods how do we know this vaccine won’t harm us in the future? I’m more scared of getting the vaccine then I am getting covid or delta. Even the side effects scare me as my friend who got the jj said don’t get the shot as he was in so much pain from it

  3. Proverbs 22:3
    The shrewd one sees the danger and conceals himself. But, the inexperienced keep right on going and suffer the consequences.

    1. @Lucius Kiirus So glad you strongly believe in the wheel of fortune, only trouble for you and your family with the new Delta variant is, it’s in control of your wheel now and no longer you obviously. Besides that, I’m pleased you feel comfortable with the higher possibility of endangering your family due to your ignorance and your perception of the “WuFlu”. The Delta variant is spreading fast and has no age barrier.

    2. @Common Sense People have died with WuFlu, but they have not died OF WuFlu. Prove me wrong. Motorcyclist died in Orlando in an accident and he was listed was a Covid death because he had Covid. Yeah, it’s that crazy.

    3. @Joanna Warrens It’s not magical thinking, it’s proven fact. If you want to become safe from Covid then throw away your TV and stop watching the “news”.

    4. @Lucius Kiirus You wouldn’t have a clue of truth and facts if it punched you in the face !!? Stop spreading your BS and get real !? Do your country a service and get a vax, to keep America safe.

    1. I’m not gonna take it when it wad rushed and xoils harm me down the road 10 years from now. I will mask up and keep my distance. I bet 10 years down down road people who got rhe vaccine will be on that commercial saying if you got the coved Vax, your untitled to cash

    2. @GreenCaliforina You have had over a year to learn how old the idea for mRNA tech is….it goes back to the original SARS 20 years ago. It’s not new.

    3. @GreenCaliforina All I can say is good luck. It isn’t really a metter of “if” you catch it, but a matter of “when” you catch it. I pray you are one of the lucky ones who doesn’t respond badly to the virus. As for Mrna being new it is not so new. They have been working on it for decades. It is like a jigsaw puzzle and they had it all put together except for the last 6 pieces. When the Genome of covid got published in Jan. of 2020 they quickly plugged the genome into the jigsaw puzzle to complete the formula. But you choose between a new virus which wants to ravage your organs and use you as an incubator to procreate in you cells, or a vaccine that more than 300 million doses have been given in the usa, and more world wide, I think the vaccine to me sounds more pleasant and less gruesome. So good luck. Don’t share air with anyone and maybe you won’t catch it. HUGS

    4. @TheDaisytails as of right now I’d rather get delta instead of trusting the virus. Once it’s fda approved I’ll know it’s safe and ill probably wil get it

    1. Remember when we had the lockdowns? Remember the suicides attributed to the lockdowns. I guess those people killed themselves, because of ‘safety concerns.’

      So…thanks to all the places that wanted to keep lockdowns in place!

  4. People need to realize its not just them. You’re a neighbor, a civilian, a brother, husband, father, mother, a member of society. Do your part and get vaccinated so we can go back to living a normal life. Please. Our doctors and nurses are absolutely exhausted and they will forever be emotionally damaged from this horrific pandemic. Let’s show our appreciation and be their heroes, their hope. Praying for all of our heroes, they are true angels.

  5. Remember the lockdowns? Remember how people kept screaming, “It’s for your safety?” Remember the people that committed suicide, due to the lockdowns? How ‘safe’ was it for them?

    Well, on the bright side: Those people don’t have to listen to people screaming about a vaccine.

  6. Why weren’t the reporter & the guy being interviewed wore any masks? Come on, if you’re taking this seriously, you should have acted like it. This is no joking matter.
