The dominant BA.5 variant of Covid-19 signals we’re still not in the clear – Vox

The BA.5 Covid-19 subvariant is now the most dominant strain in the country; the highly infectious variant has caused an uptick in cases and hospitalizations both in hotspots like New York City and the nation overall, but public health action and messaging is less aggressive than with previous outbreaks.

BA.5 typically causes familiar symptoms like fever, headache, muscle aches, cough, and sore throat but can still cause serious illness, especially in individuals with preexisting conditions. It’s even entered the highest halls of power, with President Joe Biden’s doctor saying in a letter Saturday that Biden is likely infected with BA.5. But there’s been little focus on the national plan to keep the subvariant under control, which the Biden administration rolled out July 12.

Tracking BA.5’s rise is complicated somewhat because of an increase in at-home rapid testing to confirm infection, rather than testing in a clinical setting, which would make its way to health authorities and paint a fuller picture of the data. While the number of cases is nowhere near the level of infections due to omicron last winter, the week-on-week total of hospital admissions overall has trended up steadily over the past month, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Me parecen graves, mezquinas, preocupantes y tramposas las enfermedades de la hora contemporánea, diseñadas y creadas en laboratorios mecenarios de la ciencia, que, más tarde, son disueltas en el ambiente con la intención de afectar a la humanidad y, adicionalmente, debilitar a las generaciones de niños, adolescentes y jóvenes, y acostumbrarlos a una realidad terrible de dolor, escasez, dependencia, inutilidad, miseria, tristeza y muerte; sin embargo, siento mayor coraje, pesar y mortificación ante el otro contagio, el mal que desgarra los sueños y las ilusiones, aplasta los sentimientos, destroza el raciocinio y las ideas, y contamina el bien y la verdad. Y es que si las enfermedades de laboratorio atrofian los organismos y tienen capacidad de propiciar la muerte, el otro mal, el que atenta contra los principios y los valores, la creatividad y las libertades, los sueños y…

Last night–Noite passada

Coisas da SIL

Eu não sei explicar, só sei sentir. As vezes eu não me reconheço, só me vejo presente. Acho que isso é bom. Eu gosto de ver o seu agir. Eu acredito em promessas. Eu vivo em espera. Tudo é aprendizado nesta vida onde o fardo é compartilhado. As vezes penso que ando só mas me vejo bem e forte. Alguns pensamentos vem mas vão. Me agarro apenas em suas mãos. Me agarro e sigo bem de antemão. Por: Coisas da SiL

Last Night

I don’t know how to explain, I only know how to feel. Sometimes I don’t recognize myself, I just see myself present. I think that’s good. I like to see your act. I believe in promises. I live on hold. Everything is learning in this life where the burden is shared. Sometimes I think I walk alone but I see myself well and strong. Some thoughts come…

IMAGINE: THIS RAPIST’S FOETUS IS MORE VALUED THAN I AM?

NANMYKEL.COM

Rape is horrifying and messy, and sometimes it’s easier to disbelieve that it happens at all. But that option isn’t open to victims of rape and sexual assault.

Denying rape means believing that victims are lying. It means denying their humanity and worth. And it’s a denial that has been made far too easy by thousands of years of habit.
