    Justice Department appealing decision
    They haven’t made that decision yet. They’ll appeal it if the CDC decides that the ban is still necessary. But there’s a significant risk if they do appeal - losing in a higher court could set a binding precedent, permanently limiting the CDC's authority. A District Court's decision doesn’t do that. Since the ban was set to expire in a couple of weeks anyway, I suspect they won’t appeal.

    My 10.5 year old child recently told me that he had less stamina for sports than he had before he had COVID in January. He can no longer run the whole way around the track at school, and he used to do it easily.

    I did everything right. Got him vaccinated. Made him wear masks when nobody else did. (Still do.) He still got it because of selfish jerks.

    I cried after he told me this. I'm very, very bitter at the anti-vaxxers and mask refusers.

    He was sick for less than two days, and COVID still messed him up. I'm raging pissed. And heartbroken.

    What will this mean for his future? Nobody knows.

    Delta is trash and so are anti-vaxxers.
    Sincerely sorry to hear that about your son.

    My grandson, Sean, contracted COVID 19 back in November, 2020 and experienced similar symptoms.

    He was 19 at the time and a truly phenomenal athlete and an exceptional soccer player for Widener University.

    He experienced shortness of breath, fatigue and a loss of smell when he initially contracted it in 2020.

    Slowly, over about 6 months, the shortness of breath and fatigue cleared up and he went on to win all kinds of soccer awards and even broke Widener's record for goals scored.

    He says he believes that remaining so active in sports (a heavy duty soccer schedule and training at Widener) after getting COVID 19 helped him a lot but it wasn't easy going through it.

    Today, his shortness of breath and fatigue is gone, thank God, but to this day his loss of smell remains, a whole year-and-half later.

    I truly really feel for your son. Loss of stamina for an athlete can really be devastating.

    Hopefully, your son's stamina for sports will also clear up like my grandson's did.

    Praying he'll recover soon and without any complications...

    The 1% chance of me flying just dropped to 0%. And to hell with the anti-vaxxers and maskers

    Ugh, I'm sorry - hope he fully recovers soon. 🫂 I was miserable for nearly two weeks with COVID but have no residual issues, and I would definitely take that over short illness with Long COVID. Ugh, poor kid.

    No worries, COVID-19 is now an ordinary seasonal virus according to Delta.

    And a 33 year old unqualified judge with lifetime appointment just decide to make her own laws. Awesome.

    What could go wrong?

    “Quest Diagnostics, one of the largest testing companies in the country, told ABC News that patients who are not on Medicare, Medicaid or a private health plan will now be charged $125 when using one of its…PCR tests.”

    Deltacron. They test samples of sewers near train stops and subways and such for it in the waste and presence of it indicates it is here. If detected, cases generally follow within two weeks. This week 37% of all samples are ere positive so it is here already. Some were too quick to just move on and think it was over. And on April 18, the public transportation mask mandate ends.

    Is there a new COVID wave in Europe? Why is COVID surging in Europe? Read about the new COVID wave in Europe.

    Huh, so there's 500K less people in 2021, and 1M excess deaths in 2020. Pair that with outsized impact in lower incomes (I believe) and I wonder if there is some corollary to unemployment data and the inability to find low wage workers? Maybe government subsidies weren't the cause? Interesting thoughts.

    Predictable yet horrible. We move on; poor countries who don't have enough vaccine or medicine continue to get pummeled. Wealth inequality at its worst.
    As with diseases such as malaria and HIV, rich countries are “moving on” from COVID while poor ones continue to get ravaged.

    In the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, preliminary CDC data shows there were 3.4 million deaths in the US, 17% higher than what was expected for the year.

    With nearly 500,000 more deaths than what was expected, the excess death rate for 2021 was three percentage points higher than in 2020, the first year of the pandemic. The overall death rate for 2021 was also 2% higher than 2020 and 19% higher than in 2019.

    Excess deaths compare the expected number of deaths in a place over a given time to the actual number of deaths that occurred.

    According to the data, COVID-19 was either a primary cause or one of multiple contributing causes of 467,000 deaths in 2021. This was an increase of nearly 100,000 deaths compared to 2020.

    COVID-19 was responsible for almost all excess deaths in 2021. If COVID-19 deaths are excluded from the analysis, the number of observed deaths in 2021 was less than one percent above what was expected.

    Same and I would've told him he was an idiot, but they're kids. Huge power imbalance.
