Senator Rubio just stated what we have all been thinking.
Not to undermine the COVID, but the Omicron variant appears to be very mild and should not be creating lockdowns and shutdowns again.
So, why all the hysteria?
It Is Not a Crisis
For all intents and purposes, this pandemic should be over.
At least in terms of causing panic.
At this point, the overwhelming majority of people who get the virus are surviving, and we are talking about 99.7 percent.
The variant appears to be no worse than the flu, maybe a bit more severe, but not much.
Yet, Democrats are talking about school closing in cities, to the point Biden’s Secretary of Education recently stated that periodic closings might be needed this winter.
The idea that COVID is hospitalizing record numbers of children is also bogus, debunked by none other than Dr. Fauci.
This week, Fauci revealed that kids are being hospitalized WITH COVID, NOT because of COVID.
In other words, children being hospitalized for other reasons are being tested and coming up positive, but they are showing no severe signs of COVID.
To that point, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) blatantly called out everyone that is pushing the panic button on this, which, as we know, is for no other reason than to flex their muscle…
Record numbers testing positive for a sore throat isn’t a crisis
And people in the hospital for car accidents testing positive isn’t a surge
The real crisis is the irrational hysteria which has people with no symptoms waiting hours for a test or missing work for 10 days

This entire pandemic needs to be put back into perspective for the here and now versus what happened before.
Yes, we are having more positive cases than we had during the height of the pandemic, but people are no longer dying; they are not even being hospitalized.
This all comes from Democrats marrying infection rates during the campaign rather than mortality rates, a point I made time and again during the election.
Stop the panic, and let’s get back to normal.
