Where are the numbers for those that have recovered from previous infections? Whether vaccinated or not, this is a significant portion of the population, and that data needs to be published too! The public needs to see these numbers. Ommiting this data is the same as lying to the public. Are we concerned with public health, or just with pushing these shots?

There are five variants out there that are killing vaccinated people. Delta being the most talked about that's killing mostly elderly, immune compromised, Ill people. However the other four are discreetly spoken about for some reason. In any case I am vaccinated and WILL CONTINUE TO WEAR MY MASK EVERYWHERE To protect you and myself. If you're not vaccinated that's your choice. There are consequences to every action or non action.
