As I say so often, I rarely read the news in detail. I only scan it to see what’s going on in the world. The Delta variant is reeking havoc in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and so many other places. Australia has experienced multiple lockdowns, New Zealand has locked down its entire country when one case appeared, and many states in the U.S. are experiencing surges in COVID cases again. Protests and civil unrest is high around the globe as people fight back against quarantines, mask mandates, vaccine passports, and all the rest.
Here’s an educational video about Pandemics and how they are labeled “over” by health experts.
My folks and I are staying right where we have been–in a pseudo lockdown. My Mom will be 78 and my Dad is 83. Both have underlying conditions. We have all been vaccinated, but are still mindful of how crazy this new variant is. We will be getting the booster when it comes out, and only go out to shop for necessities. We still order in and have meals delivered. The county we live in is at an all time high for COVID cases–more now than the version of COVID that hit us in 2020. Things are opened up here, but we are still careful about things, because we want to do all we can to avoid this thing if at all possible.
I hope you enjoy today’s video. I enjoy TedEd, because the videos are short, yet highly informative. I hope each of you and your families avoid this nasty thing, and do whatever you believe is right for your personal set of circumstances.
Until next time…
