    Did The CDC Just Admit Vaccines Don't Work? That's What It Looks Like

    Well, we have found an area of agreement. The CD is terribly slow in getting testing done and assembling the statistics. And, after a year and a half there is no excuse for it. Just today I heard an interview with Dr. Gottlieb bemoaning the fact that we have to get a lot of badly needed...

    CDC announcing possible new masking guidelines due to Delta variant

    CDC Confirms That Viral Loads In Vaccinated People With Delta May Be Infectious, So Masks Are Necessary

    Alas, it looks like wearing a mask while Delta making its way through the population may be wise. I don't like wearing a mask, but having known several people who suffered terribly from Covid, I know I would like getting Covid far less than wearing a mask. Time to break out the KN95 masks I...

    CDC Confirms That Viral Loads In Vaccinated People With Delta May Be Infectious, So Masks Are Necessary

    I added the missing word. Better late than never. My reply is that there is very little TB in my area. What little there is was brought in by immagrants and travelers, and it has been controlled by the health department. Quite simply, it is not a significant threat where I live. I hope the...
