Joseph Varon is a real expert on COVID 19. He has no website, he doesn’t sell ‘magic water’ or piss and moan about computer chips in vaccines.
This is a trip to the wood shed for COVID Trumptards.

“I’m pretty much fighting two wars: A war against COVID and a war against stupidity,” Dr. Varon, MD, CMO and chief of critical care at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, told NBC News. “And the problem is the first one, I have some hope about winning. But the second one is becoming more and more difficult.”
1,500 Americans died of Covid today. And republicans are still having tantrums about the one way we have to slow the spread – masks.
This country is doomed because of stupidity.

Dr. Varon noted that whether it’s information backed by science or common sense, people throughout the U.S. are not listening. “The thing that annoys me the most is that we keep on doing our best to save all these people, and then you get another batch of people that are doing exactly the opposite of what you’re telling them to do.”

In an interview with NPR, Dr. Varon said he has woken up at dawn every day for the past four months and has headed to the hospital. There, he spends six to 12 hours on rounds before seeing new admissions. He then returns home to sleep two hours, at most.
He said his staff is physically and emotionally drained.
