BLOG: When Will Covid Be Gone? : Let’s Talk About It!
Hello Again, Beloved Community,
As cases of covid begin to rise we must wonder what factors are causing those spikes. Firstly there are the two variants that have been developing, Delta and Lambda, and while the CDC is advising all citizens to get vaccinated if they haven’t; the age minimum had dropped to age 12, and they are now encouraging everyone that’s been vaccinated to get a booster, not what’s tanky going on? There have been several reports of cases where people have contracted covid After receiving their vaccinations. So what other factors can be playing a part let’s look at the obvious, despite all that had been going on there are many that still haven’t followed social distancing rules or wear masks, there are people who due to lack of running water in their homes, or in fact being homeless cannot properly sanitize; wash their hands, or even clean themselves adequately. These are some of the most harmful factors affecting our communities. Water and sanitation is our first defense against most communicable diseases such as covid and as many fight for access to clean, affordable, water and to protect or waterways from collapse from noxious companies such as Enbridge we must tender that Michigan has 21% of the WORLD’S freshwater, the entire world! So if we slow corporations and legislators that don’t value our lives continue to deny people the human right to water them we will continue to see covid run amok and possibly far worse.
