The delta variant is wreaking havoc on most of Texas — but not El Paso. Here’s why.


VT: Here in Michigan we have joined the lowest level of infected states…and now our highways are filling with cars from the “shithole” states, Ohio, Texas, Florida and West Virginia.  Vacation properties that normally empty after Labor Day, are filling again, with droves from the “Vaccine Deadbeat” states.

This is grape harvest time and I visited Ohio this weekend…wondering why I keep a home there sometimes.  Hit the Kroger store looking for A&W Diet Cream Soda (wonderful stuff).

All I found was masks.  Then I talked to a neighbor who explained that the “pastor” at her mega-church (list of arrests as a serial exhibitionist-dick displayer) said vaccines were “ungodly.”  They have a home in Belize but can’t visit it…they aren’t allowed in Belize anymore.  God’s will. 

Raw Story: El Paso resident Carlos Martinez was relieved in June when the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths were dropping in his community.

Martinez, 25, started going to restaurants for the first time in months, seeing friends and going out again after being careful for more than a year.

Then the highly contagious delta variant began to take hold across Texas and the rest of the nation in July, and the numbers started to climb again across the state.

Martinez, who is vaccinated, said he went back into isolation to help reduce the spread of the virus in El Paso, where COVID-19 killed so many people late last year that the county had to use inmates to help with the overflow of bodies at the morgue.

But while delta raged through most of the state’s 254 counties in July and August, breaking records and overwhelming hospitals in both rural conservative areas and sprawling liberal metros, El Paso — with one of the highest vaccination rates in the state — has been relatively unscathed by the most recent surge.

“We held our breath after July Fourth, but we didn’t see the increase we thought we’d see in terms of hospitalizations,” said Martinez, a local government employee.

While some other metro areas like Austin reported record high numbers of COVID-19 patients in their area hospitals just last month, and while statewide hospitalizations came close to eclipsing the January peak of 14,218, El Paso-area hospitals, which serve nearly a million West Texas residents, haven’t come close to their previous highs.  Read more…

  1. El Paso demographics indicate that the city has only a small population of white evangelicals. That would be the biggest factor in how El Paso handles the COVID-19 epidemic. If Jesus is the cure… Well, that explains a lot about why white evangelicals are the primary targets for the Delta variant of the COVID-19 bioweapon.
