Another reminder that Covid19 is not the flu.
Deadliest known outbreak at a US long-term care facility leaves 68 veterans dead and dozens more sickened.
Wikipedia says the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home can house 277 veterans.
You can not believe how sad it makes me that even now we still have people in my general vicinity (in meat-world) that claim this is not worse than a average Flu.. I mean wow... they are educated, one is a doctor in chemistry... I hope I never become this blind when I get older. And one of em even warned me of vaccines.. I mean, WTF? Do they want me to get the virus and then visit them to kill them or what the actual frick...? I can not fathom this kind of behavior, and I see it even more when people get older (60+) but the best thing is at least 2 of the old people in my vicinity actively send me conspiracy theories (unasked!), you know, that Gates/Vaccine spin.. blagh. How do you even respond to that?
Even better, one of my neighbors is a nurse in a pension home... everything these old white men do to make the situation worse directly makes her job even more of a living hell. Blegh.
