Where Will We Be….

Ever wonder where America will be a year from now in regards to the coronavirus pandemic?  If we’re not careful, which a lot of Americans aren’t, we won’t be any further ahead of it than we are now.  We may be even further behind.

We can hold out hope for a vaccine.  And there are very promising patches regarding a possible vaccine here and there.  As I posted recently, depending on what happens and who you listen to, we could see a vaccine as early as September or as late as some time in 2021.  But who can predict the future?

In the meantime we have to deal with assholes who love to spew misinformation to the public because they know a lot of the public are vulnerable.  They are desperate.  They are done hoping.  So some alleged doctors made a video and posted it all over social media telling the vulnerable, desperate, done hoping, even gullible American citizens that the “virus has a cure, it’s called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax” and that “You don’t need masks, there is a cure.”

OMG.  Stop the presses!  Tell Moderna and all the other pharmaceutical companies working around the clock on a vaccine to stop what they’re doing.  We already have a cure!  We don’t need a vaccine!  Because if you take hydroxychloroquine, especially for something other than malaria, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, there’s a very good chance you could die.  No vaccine needed.

Hydroxychloroquine is also known by the brand name Plaquenil.  We know it is given to people who will be visiting countries known for malaria and is also used in the treatment of lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.  Now, you know every drug has some kind of possible consequence, even death, right?  Even “vaccines”. According to “Medical News Today” it probably wouldn’t be wise to give this “cure” or “vaccine” of hydroxycholoquine to children. If you have psoriasis taking this “cure drug” may make it worse.  You could end up with permanent eye damage.  And then there’s the heart issues.  Which, unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have probably heard about.  And I’m not even going to get into how it could affect you if you have another condition such as diabetes or what the side effects are.  No, people, hydroxycholorquine is not a safe drug.  And it is far from a “cure” for coronavirus.  No matter what any “doctor” may tell you. And yes, you do need a mask when out in public.

You know the old saying “one bad apple spoils the whole bunch”?  That’s what is happening in America.  Most of us are taking precautions.  We aren’t listening to the idiots who spew this shit.  We sure as hell aren’t listening to SHITHOLE.  And we’re wearing face masks.  But there are so many who are ruining the chances of overcoming this pandemic with their ignorance, conspiracies and stupidity.  Unless we all get on the same page, America will keep falling further behind and will never catch up.  Even if and when a real vaccine is created.  Because so many are already refusing to take the vaccine.

I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
