You want to end this "pandemic"?

Stop getting tested

Verdad

Get vaccinated. Wellduh!

themole

I love how they are now lying with statistics. example: Out of 21,649 tests administered, 788 came back positive. That results in a positivity rate of 3.64%. Well that is the positivity rate for the population of tests, not the population of CT, which was how they did the stats prior to this summer. The ACTUAL positivity rate is 788/3,557,006 which is a .02% rate, or one fifth of one percent. Cmont people, this pandemic is OVER

Verdad

I love how you self own.

Florida_Bound

Interesting...I don't know a SINGLE person (gene therapy shot or no gene therapy shot) that has tested positive for Covid since March.

Brian C. Duffy

Time to give Mom her tablet back. She needs to check your summer school grades.

Marburg has broken out in Ghana again. Better hope it doesnt get across our open border.

90% mortality on that little beauty, and it spreads like wildfire.

Verdad

Most vaccine-preventable diseases are spread from person to person, which means that if one person in a community gets an infectious disease, they can spread it to others. The best way to help stop the spread of certain diseases is through vaccination. If enough people are vaccinated there are fewer chances for a vaccine-preventable disease to spread, keeping everyone healthier.

There are vaccines for some infectious respiratory diseases, including:

COVID-19

Influenza

Pneumonia

Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

Tuberculosis (TB) Facts are a stubborn thing. Get vaccinated now. Notice how I spelled vaccination?

andrewj

Some of comments on here make me realize how ignorant people are of the nature of viral infections.

SOL

Impossible.

Not the way WFSB deletes comments. You should only be seeing the enlightened ones from liberals.

Dan7543

At least you know the liberals are enlightened. Conservatives are T**** cultists are still trying to perfect fire.

Listen to Joe Biden as he says, "350 million Americans have already been vaccinated, they're doing fine".

Just don't look up the population of the US whatever you do.

Verdad

By the way, vaccination is not a "deeply personal decision." It is a routine public health requirement in a civilized society.

SOL

Spoken like a true fascist. Not all vaccines are created equal. And most certainly not these.

Verdad

Spinal meningitis got you down?

SOL

No.

Sanctimonious liberals.

But I'll make it.

Verdad

Got it. What is it like to be a gullible unvaccinated fool?

themole

The commies, fascists, and power mad are having a field day with covid. Proof positive that government should be minimized to keep these na$is from running you life.

Verdad

Proving that you don't understand the difference between communism and fascism? Calm down and get vaccinated son.
