Fear variant and get scared of the next variant

They're trying to fear monger about AY.4.2 (delta plus) because it spreads more easily than delta and has almost no symptoms (ooh- scary- you could have it and not even know it- vaccinations are more important than ever). The coof just made its own vaccine and they're acting like that's bad.

From the DM comments,

So, this is variant 12, there are 160 odd countries in the world which means by the time we get to the Zulu land variant there'll be, erm, squillions of mutations?

Guy with HIV dies from Covid! Oh no! HIV had nothing to do with it though. This strain is really bad, we mean it this time. Even though we meant it last time. And the time before that.

Still boggles my mind how people are still fearful. I mean if you are elderly or high risk I understand being cautious, but that is true for any sickness. Same with obesity.

There has been a general feminization of society that we didn't notice because we're living in it. I got an email from work saying "Everyone have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!"

Why do people keep saying "stay safe out there"? I've even caught myself using it. Nothing wrong with being safe, it's better than not being safe, but when did it become an aspiration?

My mom would always say "be safe" or some variation to me, I'd always reply, "safe from what?" Because there really was no danger wherever I was going.

Some people's only contribution to humanity is being scared and bringing others down. Maybe these people are important when there is an actual deadly pandemic (resident evil zombie scenario), but not right now.

In a state of nature most of the people currently engaged in such behavior would be dead.

Oh don't worry, they're already calling it the Nu variant, I think.

All the strains are equally evolved. Evolution is a process, not a stepped plateau.

So now our governments ban all travel from Africa to contain this new variant, right?

Right, guys?

Wait wait wait.

Weren't they just saying that Africa had a shockingly few amount of cases before since they basically couldn't take any protective measures and it wasn't going to kill anyone worse than Malaria or AIDS?

"Nu variant" is ripe for an Abbott and Costello bit.

Friendly reminder that the same people who think you should be forced to get jabbed are the same poeple who think that HIV isn't a big deal any more.
