Ignorance begets ignorance. Apparently there isn't much confidence or faith in the vaccine. What science (meant as a pun) are they following now?

Sounds like Newsom is working with someone he is on good terms with over at CalOSHA to test the public opinion without him having to declare a position, in order to maximize his chances in the fall recall.

Cal-Osha teaming up with Gavin to shame workers into getting a vaccination. That is the most fundamental rule of discipline, and demonstrates the governor knows what’s best for you.

Jake and Frequent Walker, majority of people do more than you do - go for walks or make trips to living room, bedroom, bathroom, Safeway. They come in contact with dozens of others on trains, buses, work places, etc. Our great country is the best country in the world with Covid because of our precautions and the vaccines. We would be like India if it was up to your leader, Trump, who proposed disinfectant and light to battle Covid.

Nice attempt Kevin at being lucid. You missed the point again, as always, to this entire fiasco of a public health speed bump. We should never have fallen this deep for a different flu strain. Furthermore, I see Trump is still living rent free in hour head. Sad. But Kevin, rap your arms around this one: The Democrats have managed to bring back the 1918 Pandemic, the 1929 Depression, the 1968 Race Riots, and the 1973 Gas Lines ALL at the same time in Biden’s first 100 days. Great hat trick Dem’s.

1332 days left until this administration is gone.

Good lord. More misinformation. This isn't "different flu strain". It's not even an influenza virus at all. It's a corona virus.

Hey Bob, did Fauci tell you that? LOL

Ah yes, the old “If you don’t say things I agree with, then you must be a trump supporter”, the favorite line of the mentally lazy.

I walk to work, hence my user name, “Kevin in Castlewood”, speaking of people out of touch with the real world.

SARS-COV-2 is not influenza. It is a different type of virus. It is not a flu virus.

Please everyone. Where a mask, wash your hands, socially distance, starve a cold, feed a fever, vote democratic to continue this fiasco.

Combative and INANE. Seem right.

I REALLY love how NOBODY has posted this: Web Link

Lead paragraph: A quarter of all deaths previously attributed to COVID-19 in Alameda County weren’t actually caused by the coronavirus, the Alameda County Public Health Department announced today.

Did ya catch that? 25%.

And this isn't even done yet. We're going to be seeing more reporting like this in the future and those of you - looking right at you BobB and Kathleen - that fomented the circus of scaremongering should be banished from commenting.

Coupled with Fauci outright admitting in email that retail bought masks were useless abasing the virus, something he never said publicly, what a complete fiasco the Chinese Communist Party and our Government unleashed on the population.

That people are now arguing about the type of virus is just ridiculous. Doesn't matter.

Get mad...hold our Government and the Chinese Government responsible.

Hey Gina, why not do some investigative reporting on how OUR city reported its numbers. THAT is the type of paper we'd like to have.

@Dan -- I would love to put reporter time into investigative journalism. As a journalist, I would personally love to write about how Alameda suddenly had fewer COVID deaths, why Contra Costa isn't going to the yellow tier ... the list goes on.

In order to continue doing what we're doing and do more investigative journalism, we need financial support from readers.

Keven has a serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Trump is really living in his head.
