COVID-19 Vaccines Arrive as the Virus Mutates:
It is #mandatoryto get vaccinated for saving lives and to continue essential life activities such as businesses, jobs, travelling etc. The productions of #COVID-19 vaccines continue to boost, and more and more people are getting vaccinated every day. The vaccines created to address the #novel coronavirus may join the smallpox, polio, and measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines as major progresses in saving lives. The speed at which #COVID-19 vaccines were developed was stunning. Vaccines usually takes several years to develop. The quickest any vaccine had been developed previously was the four years it took to create the mumps vaccine. #COVID-19 vaccines were created in less than a year. Just as important, the leading COVID-19 vaccines worked stunningly well; the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are both more than 90 percent effective against early COVID-19 variants. That was deadly because COVID-19 is incredibly adaptive. The #Delta variant, first identified in December 2020 in India, was more #infectious than its predecessors and soon became the dominant strain around the world. In November 2021, South African #scientists identified the emergence of the #Omicron variant. Within weeks it had been found around the world. As 2021 ended, it was unclear whether #Omicron presented a greater #health threat or would send the global economy into another dive. What was clear is that more than 5 million people globally and 800,000 Americans had died from COVID-19.

Derek Chauvin found guilty on all 3 charges related to George Floyd’s death:
Now he’s being sent to 22.5 years to prison. That’s what he gets for mindlessly murdering an innocent man as well as attempting to kill a 14-year-old teen back in 2017. He tried to hurt a child as well. Murderers deserve to go to prison. Very simple.

A historic event that will be remembered for a lifetime.
