Another beautiful soul stolen by this virus. 31 y.o. Brooke Upton from Ridgeland #Mississippi was 8 months pregnant when she contracted COVID. She lost her battle yesterday💔 #SoulsLostToCovid ImageImage
Her uncle Buddy Gibbons wrote the following on Facebook.
"If you have vaccine hesitancy, I understand your concerns. I urge you to reconsider your stance and get vaccinated. This isn’t about ‘politics’. This isn’t about ‘freedom’. This isn’t about ‘control’. This isn’t about ‘God’s will’. This was a human failing."

Closely tracking the delta+ lineages now across the world, one of the lineages AY.3 seems to be emerging in the United States of America. This tweetorial is to summarise the observations. I will be updating this thread as new evidence emerges.
Thanks Image
The interest in looking at this lineage closely comes from the fact that this lineage has been on the rise in USA in recent weeks.
Thanks @Unusual_Times for pointing this. Image
AY.3 seems to be localized to some states, like #Mississippi and #Missouri with nearby states slowly picking up. Image

I'd say it's a real testament to the power of propaganda.
“The takeaway message remains, if you’re vaccinated, you are protected. You are not going to end up with severe disease, hospitalization or death.”—@celinegounder…

"You cannot prove a vague theory wrong" —Richard Feynman Image
-75% of Covid infections are in vaccinated people.
-75% of the population is vaccinated.
-The vaccines were claimed to have 94%-95% efficacy.

If you’re policing terminology (again) and wondering why the public has tuned you out, then look in the mirror. 280+ million adults aren’t the problem. You are

Please spare us a redux of the airborne debates

PS— #VaccinesSaveLives *and* #DeltaVariant requires that we #WearAMask
I’m *really* close to calling people out by name rn

If you want to reinforce your priors, go right ahead, but stop amplifying academic esoterica that is not grounded in *what we know is happening in the real-world*

This ⤵️👀 is textbook. #DeltaVariant is real life. Wake up.
