LeBron James Tests Positive for Covid

LA Laker LeBron James tests positive for the COVID19 virus...

From TMZ 

LeBron James tested positive for COVID-19 this afternoon using a lateral flow test. James was given a follow-up PCR test to confirm the diagnosis. However, that test came back negative. LeBron was then given a third tie-breaker test ... which came back positive.
We're told the team has chartered a private jet so Bron can fly back to Los Angeles in a safe manner. We're also told James is currently asymptomatic.
LeBron is fully vaccinated.

The stupidity is endless smh

The Covid vaccine is meant to lessen the severity of the virus - so that you won't end up hospitalized with respirators in the ICU. The urgency to get folks vaccinated is due to staff and resource shortage!!!! It does NOT PREVENT YOU FROM CATCHING COVID!!!!!!!

Okay let's get ready for Miss Omicron to take over after Covid 19 and Delta.
This is going to take a long time to get rid of all these variants because ppl want get vaxed.

That 'Shot' Ain't A 'Vaccine'-

Wake Up & Stay Woke ✔️

Prior to the pandemic, upwards of 36k people died each year from flu complications, especially those who were already immunocompromised. Influenza is highly contagious and the medical community accepts and anticipates that the virus will mutate. Therefore, they come out with a new flu vaccine every year. The problem is the flu vaccine isn't profitable and there's little money to be made from it. Enter the Coronavirus, which is more deadly than the flu and also much more profitable. And along with this new virus, they can deliver a Maverick vaccine the masses have never heard of, present it as a panacea, control how and where it's dispensed and thereby allow its arbiters to corner the market and become filthy, stinking rich as a result.

The problem is the evil geniuses who came up with this great plan grossly underestimated the rapid mutative effects of this particular strain of Covid 19 and didn't expect their miracle mRNA vaccine to be proven as ineffective against them. So now they're scrambling to rationalize what's happening and they're pivoting. They initially tried to convince the public that the mRNA vaccine would eradicate Covid 19. All we had to do was get the shot and voila (herd immunity be damned.) Now they're selling the idea that the vaccine only helps to keep you from dying if you get sick. Doesn't sound much different than the flu if you ask me, but I guess just calling it that -- another highly contagious form of the Flu -- wouldn't be as sexy or financially beneficial from the ones who have the most to gain from it.

This is why EVERYONE should be tested regardless if vaccinated! If you can still catch it vaccinated you can spread it vaccinated. The vaccinated are the ones spreading spreading it cos they don't get regularly tested and don't have symptoms. And vaccines are what is mutating the virus. Do your research!

That's not true - the vaccine was never presented as a cure (there are very few "cures" for viral infections - including the flu) - the issue from the very beginning was the limited resources and staff. There is an allocation of resources for ICU's, respirators, and the staff needed to provide those services. Think: car accidents, heart attacks, strokes etc etc - these are incidents that most medical facilities can handle in their respective areas per population. Now, imagine 5-15% influx in the amount of people who are now clamoring for these limited resources? That's the issue. That's always been the issue. That's why the CDC kept trying to "slow the curve". Slow down the amount of infections, the amount of medical staff and resources - especially when it is PREVENTABLE.

My job is psychotic about flu vaccinations every year. And every year I used to try to avoid getting the vaccine, until I got the flu. And it wasn't your garden variety of coughing, fever, and soar throat. Oh, no. I had the type of flu that causes muscle aches and cramps! And lemme tell you, as a woman who's experienced debilitating menstrual cramps monthly, this type of pain was completely foreign to me! Doing basic things like, brushing my teeth while standing, I couldn't do. I couldn't stand upright for more than a few SECONDS, because the pain was that bad. Now, I get flu shots FAITHFULLY. My job don't even have to tell me - or require me - every August / September I'm looking for flu shot availabilities at my pharmacy. I say that to say, everyone's body is different. Viruses affect each of us differently. So while COVID may be less severe (or asymptomatic) in you, it could be deadly to someone else. Which is why it's important for everyone to get vaccinated. No, it's not a cure, but it will prevent hundreds of unnecessary deaths. We all have to live and exist in the same space, we need to adhere to public health policies and do our part in eradicating, or "slowing the curve".

All this misinformation and suspicion about a vaccine that's existed for at least 20 years? The same vaccine component that combated SARs in the early 2000s? The longer we distrust and amplify misinformation, the longer it will be before we get back to some form of normalcy.

Get vaccinated!

@3:27, You obviously view me as your head 'N' in charge if that's what's on your spirit. You said it, not me.

@Anonymous 3:38PM, I'm not debating that the pandemic caught the world off guard or that it's deadly. I'm merely speaking on where we are today and the financial motivations which continue to drive the existing messages we're receiving. Folks need to be mindful about the information they're taking in and the narratives they're being fed.

@Unknown 4:12PM, I believe I contracted Covid back in February 2020 before our then dingbat President downplayed it's seriousness and blatantly ignored what was happening in China and Italy. I'd never felt so sick in my life so I understand the debilitating pain you speak of. I recovered at home in three days using only holistic methods. I never saw a doctor and there was no vaccine at that time.

I have no issue with anyone who chooses to get vaccinated because as you said we're all different. I'm also not a Covid denier, I mask up indoors and I don't do large crowds. But one of my issues is that they don't push the J&J vaccine as much as the mRNA vaccine, and I feel that's by design. And our government intentionally didn't put the vaccine on the free market to sort of 'starve out' other countries. So while Americans are lining up for their second and third boosters, some countries are still struggling to get their first doses. People need to quit thinking our government is altruistic and does everything for the right reasons.

As for the mRNA, it was actually discovered over 40 years ago but it went largely ignored up until around the early 2000s when the research caught the eye of some venture capitalists who later founded a company called Moderna (a hybrid of the words Modified and RNA) and created BioNtech to focus on mRNA for cancer treatment. Yes, mRNA also had other applications but it wasn't until Moderna partnered with the NIH that they started receiving more funding for mRNA flu research (10s of millions of dollars worth), which is when mRNA finally gained traction.

In 2018 Pfizer signed a deal with BioNtech to develop a mRNA vaccine specifically for the flu virus. Not long after, a virus 'escaped' a lab in Wuhan China. Miraculously, after decades of testing and research that was mostly discredited because it was conducted by lesser known and lesser funded scientists, and under threat of a global pandemic in late 2019, Pfizer and Moderna were right there with answers in hand. And wouldn't you know it, Moderna and Pfizer were also the first in line to get their vaccine approved for use in the US. The entire history is quite fascinating. And it's also fascinating how medical technology which went largely ignored for decades became the star of the show seemingly overnight at the financial benefit of a chosen few.

Folks should get vaccinated if that's what they want to do. But they should also know there's a sordid history behind this particular vaccine that's being promoted. I fail to believe the most powerful and influential nation in the world accidentally dropped the ball in the beginning of this crisis. I also notice that our supply chain issues have dubiously shifted from obtaining basic PPE to getting basic consumables. But I guess that's also just pure dumb luck and a bad coincidence, right?

I'm not here to spread misinformation. I just don't have tunnel vision and tend to look beyond what's put in my face. Facts are everywhere. We only have to seek them out.

I hear you. There are many reasons to be suspicious of the medical/pharmaceutical companies, and of our government, however, it doesn't take away from the fact that this crisis has become a public health issue - which means, we're all gonna have to take a leap of faith, because what's the alternative? Continue to watch our healthcare system fall apart ? And what happens to the ppl who suffer from issues like heart attacks, trauma accidents, strokes, diabetes, respiratory issues? Pediatric ICU's? All the medical providers and practitioners who have been working 10+ hour shifts to treat all of the issues? This is my point. This virus is bigger than yours, mine, or any else's "choice". People are dying or being turned away because we do not have the resources or staff to treat an additional 10-20% of anti vaxxers. I'm sorry, but, vaccines need to be mandatory. Just like it's mandatory to be vaccinated to visit certain countries, the U.S. needs to start taking a firmer hand. We don't have the luxury of millions of ppl dying or needing treatment for folks to "get it". We need more altruism in our fellow countrymen before we can or should expect it from our government.
