So now it’s the Delta variant. Even more contagious than the Alpha variant that tore through the UK a while ago. It’s largely unvaccinated people being affected, though there have been a number of break-through cases in fully vaccinated folks. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Of course, there is no hope of the Always Trumpers and vaccine deniers ever latching on to the principal of mutation. They’re not ready to embrace the reality that as long as the virus has a steady supply of unprotected bodies to infect, it also has the capability of changing its genetic structure and becoming more difficult to control.
It’s a witch’s brew of ignorance and stubbornness.
