Guardian: The US could soon see Covid-19 cases return to 200,000 a day, a level not seen since among the pandemic’s worst days in January and February, the director of the National Institutes of Health warned on Sunday.

While the US currently is seeing an average of about 129,000 new infections a day – a 700% increase from the beginning of July – that number could jump in the next couple weeks, Dr Francis Collins said on Fox News Sunday.

“I will be surprised if we don’t cross 200,000 cases a day in the next couple of weeks, and that’s heartbreaking considering we never thought we would be back in that space again,” Collins said.

Collins pleaded anew for unvaccinated Americans to get their shots, calling them “sitting ducks” for a Delta variant that is ravaging the country and showing little sign of letting up.

“That was January, February, that shouldn’t be August. But here we are with the Delta variant, which is so contagious, and this heartbreaking situation where 90 million people are still unvaccinated, who are sitting ducks for this virus, and that’s the mess we’re in.”

“This is going very steeply upward with no signs of having peaked out,” he said.

Collins also said the US could decide in the next couple weeks whether to offer coronavirus booster shots to more Americans this fall.  read more…

  1. If there are indeed 200,000 cases of “something” in the next few weeks, and it’s primarily the “vaccinated” who are getting the “thing,” don’t be surprised if the blame is put on those who don’t get that other “thing” called the “vaccine.”

    In Feb. 1981, then-CIA Director William Casey during the first meeting of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet, told those present, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

    “There is a plot in this country to enslave every man, woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot.” (President John F. Kennedy, 7 days before his assassination)

    I know how the FDA works. They’re just puppets for Big Pharma. As far as clarification of my comment, why dont you provide evidence to the contrary instead of petty third grade insults and name calling? I’ll wait for you to get through puberty first.

    • Sorry, I was being facetious in anticipation of Gordon’s usual response. I have been permanently moronized on this site. LOL

  3. The efficacy rate of the Pfizer vaccine has dropped from 95% to 42% in just 7 months, a 53% dropoff. Pfizer is supposed to get FDA approval this month. Are they still going to approve it? If it continues it’s downward spiral of efficacy at that same rate, in 7 more months it will stand at -11% efficacy, (That’s negative 11). To approve a vaccine with a failed outcome as this, that would be the definition of insanity. To receive it despite knowing this fact would be insanity.

    • That’s how the FDA works. It’s all upside down now. Just ask Gordon Duff for clarification of your analysis. Moron!!

    • Yes. Pfizer is a criminal drug enterprise masquerading as a health product supplier. Know what the unit price the Goverment is paying per dose? Nobody does. Proprietary blah blah blah. If those efficacy numbers were published and accurate, nobody would take the shots. Or would they? We are truly one foot in the Twilight Zone now.

  4. Dr. Robert Malone is the inventor of the mRNA technology that was used to develop the mRNA vaccine. Dr. Malone explains (at the 50 minute mark) that what the vaccine is doing, in addition to killing and injuring people’s health, which he does not emphasize, is evolving the virus, in a manner of speaking, training it to escape vaccines. In other words, the vaccine itself amplifies variants that cannot be prevented by vaccines. Watch this on Rumble…..Dr. Robert Malone ~ The Liberty Forum ~ 8-10-2021

  5. If what the CDC previously said is true, that out of every 4 varient cases, 3 were fully vaccinated, then it is the fully vaccinated spreading it, NOT THE UNVACCINATED! The NIH head then don’t believe what the scientist and professionals at CDC has Found, but talking what is told to him by the govt and their controllers at NWO.

  6. Simple solution put it out to everyone if you are not vaccinated do not come to hospitals or instacare for anything. You don’t believe in health care so that should not be a problem. Than make only fully vaccined patients into any health care setting.

    • Idiot Gov Wolf here in PA just announced a solution. Children grades K-12 will start “self swabbing” Covid tests in all schools. If there parents agree. Hmmm. That has lawsuit written all over it. Company got $87 million contract to produce swabs and initial test results. Nice.
