Friday/ ‘We are failing one another’ – really?

Look at all the red on this map of the USA. We are averaging more than 100,000 new coronavirus cases a day, for the first time since February.
If Florida and Louisiana were countries, they would have been No 1 and No 2 in the world for Covid prevalence.

Barely a month after Washington State ‘reopened’, King County is now again red, as well (threat level: High).

I corrected/ clarified USA Today newspaper’s headline for them. I am vaccinated, and I wear my mask indoors in public spaces (again). Unvaccinated people are like drunk drivers. If you are unvaccinated, you should really stay home and not go anywhere. Sooner or later, you will get infected, and infect others: your family, your friends, co-workers, strangers. How hard is that to understand?

P.S. So now that my rant against the unvaccinated is out of the way, here is advice from Adam Grant (organizational psychologist) @AdamMGrant on Twitter, when talking to vaccine-hesitant people:
How not to talk about vaccines:
Only half the population is vaccinated, and anti-vaxxers are to blame. Vaccines are safe and effective.

A better option:
Over 160 million Americans are fully vaccinated. Yes, vaccines have risks, but COVID poses greater risk.
