  1. People who don’t understand why we need to wear masks again, don’t seem to understand that circumstances DO change.
    Just because you don’t need an umbrella today, doesn’t mean you won’t need it tomorrow.

    1. @Moses of Now yet you have already made up your mind that it came from a lab without any investigation into the origin.
      It more likely that it came from a wet market like ever other SARS viruses in history.
      So your agenda is clear.

    2. @Some Guy
      Why ridicule them? No one forces you to do something. Their body their choice and they fully accept the risk.

    3. @Ja Loux and your assumption is a joke.
      So just be selfish and think of yourself and not others.

    4. @Moses of Now you obviously do care as you have to keep claiming it’s from a China Lab without any spread of proof.
      So it’s very clear what you are trying to do.

    1. If you want to slow/get rid of the rightwing videos from your feed, delete them by touching those 3 little dots in the right hand corner of the screen. There should be a drop down list, including “do not recommend this channel.” I’ve done that to many video channels that don’t want to see.

  2. Republican logic: I used an umbrella yesterday.

    I will never use one ever again!!!

    The rest of the world:

    Whaaaaat

    1. Denocrat logic: Global pandemic laid off millions resulting in no health insurance. Dems hace all the power and still no Medicare for all.

    2. Keep in mind you are dealing with a group of people who will argue in a dead serious manner, it’s the Democrats that is the racist party, because 150 year ago the Confederacy was mostly Democrats, then they will turn around and argue we need to save the racist Democrat statutes. I guess they love racists more than they hate Democrats.

    3. “So you mean if we rid metal detectors than firearms on airplanes magically disappear?”

    4. @nosuchthing8 What does healthcare have to do with a pandemic? You msnbc accounts never fail to make me laugh

  3. I don’t mind the masks. It’s the ignorance in this country that’s difficult to comprehend. Technology has created a world of media crazed people who can’t differentiate a cartoon from reality anymore. Sad, but true. If it’s not typed on a screen or shown in a tic tok video, to most people, it’s not real. Dumbing up of America? Well,.. here we are.. pandemic round #2. Can’t fix stupid.

    1. @Oppressed Speaker of truth I agree, you should be allowed to be a viral vector and not have to wear a mask, and we should be free to seal your state off from the rest of the country with roadblocks and no plane travel, and let you enjoy your no-mans land. Maybe at some point, we’ll stop hearing from you.

    2. I’m in France and I think that we have a stronger ignorance among the population. I don’t know what happened to people… It’s so sad

    3. @José Alberto Magaña Mora The global concept of conservative politics, opening the door to exploitation of weak minded individuals and their paranoia through percieved backlash against educated elites. That’s what happened.

    4. @Oppressed Speaker of truth You can’t even present the correct ‘you’re’.
      You’re the actual part of the problem.
      People who go against the best medical advice are fools deserving of the suffering they encounter from avoidable diseases.

    1. Not all but to large a number. not only disappointing but embarrassing. I have never been embarrassed to be an American until recently.

  4. I’m frustrated because I only stopped wearing a mask bc they said that the vaccinated don’t spread covid. The delta variant was already out when they said vaccinated people dont spread the virus. I wish they had waited until studies were completed on the delta variant before relaxing regulations.

    1. Science is always going to be the philosophy of learning as we go…it is not always predictable, but the virus will continue mutating as long as people refuse vaccinations or preventative measures to stop it!

    2. You were sent to slaughter , we never should have been reopened

      Medias Data: Nov 2019 -covid_19 Jan 2020: First Covid_19 vaccine shot. Oct 2020: Delta variant ( identified in India) July 2021: Unvaccinated responsible for spread.

      Unvaccinated Data: Oct 2020 A person was in India and traveled out and this variant found its way to the United States.

      July 2021: You can blame: India Airport or American Airport. But you will not blame The Unvaccinated .

      Herd immunity + Nation wide reopen = Over 1 Million Americans will be dead by Dec 2021 from covid_19 because you didnt want to be locked down with your wife , husband , children, families. You preferred work, concerts ,baseball , basketball , football and dining out. Everyone who wanted to be locked down for 2-3 years are some of the people who refuse the vaccine. We didnt hate on you ,dont hate on us.(Not 1 person wants to be in the percentage that dies from the vaccine after the jab(s).

    3. I thought it was obvious what they were doing, they were giving people a break while it was safe to do so.
      We do that all the time in Australia, we wipe out covid, remove the masks & enjoy normal life until the next quarantine breach re-imports it again. People happily wear the masks when told to, cause we know it’s for health reasons not control or whatever, seemed obvious to me that the CDC was trying to copy.

      Wasn’t anything wrong with taking them off when they said that, not like you were going to stop delta! In fact, it was better to speed up it’s progress, cause you do NOT want it hitting in winter, hitting mid-summer is the best possible outcome, so that’s what the CDC tried to make happen

    4. @Ellen Doyle you’re not stopping delta with masks! Even Vietnam & Australia can’t do that! (Vietnam had under 1000 cases all pandemic before delta – in a population of 97 million people)

    5. @Moses of Now you don’t need a 2-3 year lockdown! All you need is 1-6 weeks & then borders kept closed – as long as you act early enough, the longer you wait, the harder it is & with delta it seems it may reach the point of no longer being possible to stop through any level of lockdown that is practical to carry out, as it still spreads by walking past a staff member at a supermarket & from there infects huge numbers of people that then go into that supermarket, including essential workers

  5. Nobody has the “right” to be reckless with his health if it overwhelms our hospitals — or if it makes other folks sick.

    1. Everyone promoting the Covid19, US Military’s bioweapon will be executed for crimes against humanity.

    2. The enemy here is a globalist cabal, one that is determined to institute a “Great Reset.” Patriots are going to reset them, in due time, together with all those with whom they have been collaborating – in politics, runaway government agencies, and the left-wing, fake-news media. As for the CDC, they need to start releasing all known FACTS regarding the dangerous side-effects of these mRNA vaccines, and stop editing the VAERS database!!

    3. You were sent to slaughter , we never should have been reopened

      Medias Data: Nov 2019 -covid_19 Jan 2020: First Covid_19 vaccine shot. Oct 2020: Delta variant ( identified in India) July 2021: Unvaccinated responsible for spread.

  6. Call it like it is. The selfish jerks that refuse the vaccination are messing up life for everyone.

    1. @Denise Skinner the tinfoil hat is cutting off blood to your brain, and there is no way you have brain cells to spare.

    2. Those that have a healthy respiratory system are equal to those that have taken both shots bc NOW the effectiveness against the delta variant has dropped down to a 40% to 45 % effective rate against the delta variant and will continue to become even less effective as months go by.. Soon, all vaccinated ppl will go back to the status of a nonvaccinated person by early next year…if not before bc the effectiveness of their shots in 2021 will no longer be effective against the delta variant. But, the doctors are holding this information to keep the ppl calm. Let’s see how long they wait to tell us the truth.
      JUST WEAR YOUR MASK AND WASH YOUR HANDS!!!! PERIODT!!!

    3. @Josie B protection from death & hospitalisation does appear more enduring than protection from infection though (which is what you’re talking about as being below 50% within 7 months of the second shot). Still WAY more effective than a cloth mask though

  7. The British told you how dangerous and transmittable Delta is, and the US got caught asleep on the job.

  8. The remarkable thing is that the people from the States who have always wanted to be known for their good sense and pragmatism are the ones who are now failing to assert that commen sense. If they had been contestants on the former guy’s television show, they would have been “fired”. There is plenty of evidence that the government has been moving with extreme caution regarding both masks and vaccinations. Community compliance is necessary in order to get control of Covid and it’s current variations.

    1. Pretty soon you will have to get another vaccine….and another….and another. Doctors are keeping that little secret.

    2. @Josie B and why will we need to do that? Because morons won’t get the first vaccine, wear masks, or social distance!

    3. @dark14life …because you can’t escape the JUDGEMENT OF ALMIGHTY GOD – THEY JUST AREN’T TELLING YOU THIS YET!!! YOU GUYS ARE TRYING TO “CONTINUE LIVING”…NOPE, TIME FOR ALL OF THE WICKED, EVIL AND UNRIGHTEOUS THE WORLD OVER, TO BE DEALT WITH, FINALLY, ONCE AND FOR ALL – JUST LIKE THE BIBLE SAID, SAYS, AND IS FULFILLING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOURS, AND THE ENTIRE WORLD’S EYES!!! YOU WILL BOW BEFORE JESUS CHRIST AND CONFESS HIM AS THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!!!!! TIME, AIN’T ON YOUR SIDE!!!!

  9. No crap the scientists have been telling us for 2months the delta variant is much more transmissible and gives you a more serious infection.

  10. The reason I’m mad about masks being needed again is because they wouldn’t be needed if people had gotten vaccinated, and those same people won’t bother to wear masks.
