If there is a problem you face USA in their battle against covid, they are the skeptical to get immunized, either distrust, fear, or religious beliefs. A large segment of the population refuses to inoculate, despite continued warnings from health authorities around the world. In parallel, the Delta variant advances on the unprotected, being one of the mutations responsible for new infections in minors and unvaccinated adults.
One such case is the death of the conservative radio host, the american pastor Robert “Bob” Enyart, that passed away from covid after refusing to receive the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. The one who broke the sad news on social media was his co-host Fred Williams. “It hurts a lot that my close friend and co-host of Real Science Radio have lost their battle against covid. Bob Enyart was one of the smartest and, without a doubt, the wisest person I have ever met, ”he publicly lamented.
As related CNNIn October of last year, Enyart won a lawsuit against the state of Colorado over its COVID-19 restrictions. After the ruling, the announcer spoke with that international media and said: “We have the right, even the obligation, to adore him (God), and that without government interference ”. In fact, a report on covid on the radio’s official page revealed that Enyart and his wife Cheryl they had sworn not to use the vaccines de Pfizer, Moderna ni Johnson.
However, Enyart was not the only conservative radio host to recently pass away from complications from covid. Dick Farrel, a Florida-based radio host, also died from coronavirus in August, just like the host from Nashville, Phil Valentine, who was 65 years old when he lost his life as a result of SARS-CoV-2. All of them had openly expressed their skepticism about vaccines.
Meanwhile, the US authorities no longer know how to convince the undecided to get vaccinated. President Joe Biden He was “frustrated” with 80 million people from his country that have not yet been inoculated against the covid and warned that group that their patience “is running out.”
Biden spoke this way during a speech at the White House, in which he announced the compulsory vaccination against the covid of all federal government employees, a total of 2.1 million people, among other measures to contain the spike in infections in the country.
“Many of us are frustrated with the nearly 80 million Americans who have not yet been vaccinated,” said the president, adding that, although the unvaccinated are equivalent to about 25% of Americans who meet the requirements to be inoculated against the coronavirus, in a country “as big” as the US, a minority like that “It can cause a lot of damage and it is doing it”.
Biden directly asked those who refuse to get vaccinated “What else do you need to see?” to trust that vaccines are safe, and regretted that his reluctance is multiplying the hospitalizations and deaths for the Delta variant of the coronavirus in that country. “We have been patient, but our patience is running out, and their refusal (to be vaccinated) has had costs for everyone,” he said.
