Vermont is a rural state and has one of the highest vaccinated populations in the country. A local CBS news affiliate is reporting that Vermonters who have tested positive for COVID are clogging up the ER despite the fact they are displaying no symptoms.
The medical director for the Rutland Regional Medical Center Dr. Rick Hildebrant is telling people to stay home unless they are severely ill.
Hildebrant explains that a flood of asymptomatic people is hindering others from receiving the care that they need.
“It’s not so much the beds that are the precious resource, it’s the staff at this time. So we have to have some of our clinical staff providing care to those people and they can’t provide care to the folks in the ER,” Hildebrant explained.
I’m currently in Vermont and can confirm that the COVID crazy is off the charts. Was here 5 months ago and people are more afraid now than they ever were before. And for what??? https://t.co/R10UwPI1r6
A new study explains why the vax church is having a panic attack.
This study shows that after three months the vaccine effectiveness of Pfizer & Moderna against Omicron is actually negative. Pfizer customers are 76.5% more likely and Moderna customers are 39.3% more likely to be infected than unvaxxed people. https://t.co/wPgAwG8BW3pic.twitter.com/3Oh3IJSVIk
