The New “Tripledemic”- Flu, Covid, RSV

The reins of power never give up

With Los Angeles hinting that the mask mandate may return, and NBC reminding listeners that hospitals are “being slammed” with patients suffering from a “tripledemic” – RSV, Covid and flu- there are a couple of things to remember. 1) Immunity went down the toilet with all the falderal from Covid lockdowns, masks, and vaccines that have a debatable efficacy, and 2) Democrats have no plans to relinquish the reins of power any time soon.

WKYC reported that flu had already reached the epidemic threshold this November. The flu season is here and always reaches epidemic proportions around this time of year. This year is somewhat different: now we have what is being called RSV: Respiratory Syncytial Virus on top of flu and Covid.  And the liberals are attempting to turn it into a panic.

RSV is not a new virus. It has been around for decades. Covid has been around for 3 years. Flu, or influenza is a seasonal virus that we’ve dealt with literally for more than a century in one form or another. Suffice it to say that panic is not warranted in any way.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus is just like any other virus: it spreads easily from others coughing or sneezing in your direction. It’s usually contagious from 3 to 8 days, but if a person has a weakened immune system, they can be contagious for up to 4 weeks. And people can get it multiple times in their lives.  It is generally a mild virus, but certainly can become deadly in some.  And most of us have never heard of it.

Gee, does that sound familiar? Influenza kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. Covid had a 99 percent recovery rate yet killed millions. RSV is no different, and since they tell us it’s been around a long time, it’s just another virus.

The main difference is that this time kids are susceptible to it as much as older adults. Why? Because the reins of power told them masks were mandatory, so they have no immunity to viruses. And neither do many adults these days for the same reason.

The reins of power are now in the hands of Democrats and “health officials” who have a vested interest in promoting fear. Don’t buy into it. This tripledemic will pass.
