The situation here is worse than in almost any other country. The U.S. death rate over the past two weeks, adjusted for population, is more than twice as high as Britain’s, more than seven times as high as Canada’s and more than 10 times as high as Germany’s. If Mississippi were its own country, it would have one of the world’s worst total death tolls per capita, CNN’s Jake Tapper noted yesterday. NYT

Thank you anti-vaxxers and the right wing media (and no doubt Russian trolls) who are literally causing the deaths and suffering of so many Americans.

Why? One reason is that the U.S. — after getting off to an excellent start — now trails many of these countries in Covid vaccination rate. Almost one in four American adults still has not received a shot. The unvaccinated continue to be disproportionately people without a college degree and Republican voters.

Republican voters. They don't have a clue. Republican politicians are encouraging their stupid and deadly behavior and they just don't get it.
