  1. Because shes never wrong…We still listen to her why? She messes up again its a simple sorry and were on our way.

    1. …to be fair … she is correct ..new variant is a sars/ covid with same symptoms as Alpha and hospitalises the same demographics … Those with underlying conditions and part of baby boomer bust …vax will still be effective to mitigate

  2. Wait until next month, it’ll be a problem in adults, school aged children and family pets, with the worst cases among goldfish, house plants and turkeys killed for Christmas dinner…

    1. Yes, and Holiday decorations will be sealed off from the public but other items will still be available as it was “found” that some Christmas items do in fact have the COVID Lambda variant.

  3. Mama always said”Never trust anyone with a bad hairdo. They tend to make questionable decisions based on flawed vision”.

    1. @Ron R In her defense, it’s a tough job. A constantly moving target this COVID-19 thang. She’s not a villain, she’s just “The Hinshaw”.

    1. Brazil Senate recommends Bolsonaro be charged with crimes against humanity for his poor handling of the pandemic.

      Brazil has suffered one of the world’s most severe COVID-19 outbreaks, but you wouldn’t know it from its president’s behavior. Jair Bolsonaro has undermined vaccines. He’s encouraged Brazilians to form crowds, and he’s touted ineffective treatments. A Senate inquiry in Brazil concluded that thousands of deaths could have been avoided if Bolsonaro and his government had done things differently. Members of the inquiry voted yesterday to recommend that Bolsonaro be indicted for nine offences, including crimes against humanity.”

  4. there’s no concern for alarm for any variant. There is concern that this woman will not go to her court date. She keeps getting it adjourned. HEY IF YOU GOT NOTHING TO HIDE JUST GO TO COURT ALREADY!!!!!!!

    2. @Vaccines Save Lives Crimes Against Humanity is the charge the mad scientists Anthony Fauci and Peter Daszak will face.
