I'd say one off the top of my head. I know several folks who have had it. So far, none of my close family has had it with complications enough for hospitalization. I was talking to my brother and his daughter may have been exposed at daycare. They shut the daycare down for 2 weeks. All this makes me almost grateful for not having kids at this point.

Where I am on the map, Chicago shows that's highly likely. We have a different pandemic of death going on here.

The death rate of Covid is nuts people need to stop being blind and protect themselves and their families. That map IS NUTS

My mother's best friends family. Essentially like my aunt

I grew up with her daughter literally one of my oldest memories is going to see star wars with her and our mothers in 1980 or whenever it came out.

Her hs age son got it we think from school.

Came home...gave it to her his dad and both sets of grandparents.

She was the care giver...started feeling sick herself on Monday by Friday she was gone

Family couldn't even mourn her properly because everyone's still quarantined or whatever

Shit is beyond tragic

he was in his late 30’s and the updates were heartbreaking.

she thought he was getting better and poof, he was gone.

It was before the vaccine but his death is what pushed me to get vaccinated.

even with the numbers as they are. i leave my apartment double masked up 1-2 times/week to go grocery shopping at low traffic hours and see dozens of people without masks every time. the time of day and location doesn't matter. always lots of people without masks on. the maskless-ness transcends race and class. folks are so ignorant and/or selfish here

We totally reconfigured our economy and government, started a 20+ year war that cost trillions, killed and displaced millions of people around the world, for a terrorist act that killed less people that died like, say this Monday and Tuesday from COVID.

And of course you react to a war versus a pandemic differently but you would think would CARE the same. But folks are like, "meh, grandma was old and had pre-existing conditions".

It's insane.

Of that 700,000, you have to figure the majority of them are GQP/conservatives. It won’t make a different in solid red states but in swing states like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania it could. Also in states like Arizona and Georgia where the margin of victory was so slim it could help Democrats.

its this 100%. there is no kinda. They are actually quite blatant and they arent hiding their intentions. They've already successful taken over many local elections boards and are using the big lie as a cover to justify this behavior on a broad scale.

white supremacist patriarchy has always relentlessly and ruthlessly violent and selfish.

At 500,000 they had some pageantry flair of recognition for the milestone, but since then it's been crickets. I've been tracking it in my sphere of media and it gets quieter and quieter. It's probably due to the vaccines being effective deterrents, but we should be keeping the same energy for these milestones or folks won't care like they should.

i guess there are a couple of these but this is the one i've seen
https://www.sorryantivaxxer.com/

they're basically people who are sick or dead of covid and what they were posting on social media just before they got sick.

I spent a good hour on here the other day because i found it sadly fascinating but overall i have pretty mixed feelings about stuff like this.
