The midterm elections are mere months away, which means that it is highly unsurprising that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has commenced fresh fear mongering over the COVID pandemic.
The pandemic is notorious for ushering in mass mail-in ballots, which had been unprecedented in past elections in the United States, especially given the significantly higher potential for fraud.
According to the CDC, an alleged subvariant of Omicron, BA.5, apparently accounts for the majority of COVID cases across the United States.
According to New York University infectious disease expert Céline Gounder, “Omicron subvariants BA.4 & BA.5 account for 70 percent of COVID cases in the U.S.”
Omicron has been widely acknowledged to be as dangerous as a cold, though the media establishment has demonstrated strong resistance to dropping its long-term fear mongering regarding the pandemic and other issues, as evidenced by Gounder’s commentary.
“We are also seeing early hints that Omicron subvariants BA.4 & BA.5 may be more virulent, [or] causing more severe disease, than the original Omicron,” Gounder added dramatically.
Despite the mainstream media’s fear mongering, which has long been aided and abetted by Dr. Fauci and the CDC, hospitalizations related to COVID remain well below prior peak levels in the past.
However, some indications ostensibly reveal an uptick in case, with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) claiming that more than 5,000 individuals per day are being hospitalized due to COVID.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the United States has “recently averaged slightly more than 300 deaths a day,” adding that just one year ago “the average dipped to slightly above 200 a day.”
Per the Journal, the dip “[reflects] a lull in cases as vaccinations rose and a respite before the Delta and then Omicron variants took hold.”
The recent surge in media attention to COVID happens to emerge after the National Institute of Health (NIH), led by the notorious Dr. Fauci, claimed that COVID was the third leading cause of death in the United States between March 2020 and October 2021.
