All preventable. Get vaccinated.
This is alarming news knowing that our COVID cases are only going to rise. I would hope that more businesses will offer financial incentives to get employees to vaccinate which will hopefully take care of a certain number of the work force but that won’t help bring in more medical personnel to our taxed health care system nation wide.
How are hospital staff putting themselves “at risk” if they’re all fully vaccinated? Maybe because the vaccine doesn’t work, we’ve already seen proof of that, it’s not even FDA approved and it’s being pushed onus like it’s holy water, what happened to “My body my choice” , this is a FREE country, the media continues to push its own narrative and guilt or force people into doing something that isn’t even proven effective
Everyone in the world, including you, will get the Covid Virus flu eventually – EVERYONE! The best thing we can do is let everyone get it now so we can all build up the much preferred, efficient, and long lasting immune system in our own bodies naturally! The vast majority of everyone dying of this virus are obese, immune deficient, have other diseases that will kill them anyway etc. Everyone who is healthy regardless of age, will make it through and the world will have a much better arsenal of immunity to control and fight the virus.
They unvacc’d need to change their tune.
Have they seen thousands of people dying or falling ill from receiving the vaccine? No.
Have they seen people being taken over like robots from receiving the vaccine? No.
Time to man up, and get your shot!
Post your ignorant comments below. However if you actually live here, and actually know someone in health care in Hawaii, you know it’s getting worse. Pretty soon you’ll know someone in Wilcox unless people change their behavior. Kauai’s numbers are 12 times higher now than a year ago, still climbing. It’s sad to see the same comments from the same people every day – ignoring the reality of the sickness and deaths, but still they post.
