Got a new variant - thought I would post it:
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/...ding-in-south-america-heres-what-we-know

Oh, while we have been sending vaccinations over to Africa China and Russia have been sending their vaccinations to Latin America (I suspect we got it backwards by not protecting Latin America). Anyway, the russian and Chinese Vaccine doesn't seem to work with the Lamda Variant. There are not a whole lot of tests to really know about it yet)

Good to see you, Jeffery!

The Delta variant is currently eating its way through the ranks of republicans and I have zero sympathy for them. Newer deadlier strains are still unlikely to change their minds. I have several friends currently ill with it, some vaccinated, some not.

FDA approval will be an interesting development to watch.

Actually, I haven't seen the "reckless endangerment" tactic discussed or argued anywhere. I don't even think that it needs to be argued in order for it to be used - the argument would be in court. It doesn't require any mandates or new laws - I think it could be the basis for real lawsuits now.

If anti-maskers/vaxxers thought they could be sued for damages from willful negligence resulting in infecting others, many of them might take the easy way and just get the jab.
