Colorado Gov. Jared Polis declared the COVID-19 pandemic “over” and at this point, it’s the unvaccinated’s “own darn fault” if they get sick from the CCP virus.
“Everybody had more than enough opportunity to get vaccinated,” Polis told Colorado Public Radio last week. “Hopefully it’s been at your pharmacy, your grocery store, a bus near you, [or at] big events. At this point, if you haven’t been vaccinated, it’s really your own darn fault.”
Polis, a Democrat, said that he won’t be implementing another statewide mask mandate due to the Omicron variant of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus. Since it was discovered several weeks ago, one Omicron death has been confirmed so far in the United Kingdom.
“Those who get sick, it’s almost entirely their own darn fault,” Polis added. “I don’t want to say that nobody will get the CCP virus if they are vaccinated, but it’s very rare.”
The governor added that he will leave masking mandates up to individual counties and municipalities.
Polis continued: “Just to put it in perspective, of the about 1,400 people hospitalized, less than 200 (or 16 percent) are vaccinated. And many of them are older or have other conditions. Eighty-four percent of the people in our hospitals are unvaccinated, and they absolutely had every chance to get vaccinated.”
“I still encourage everybody who hasn’t been vaccinated to get protected,” Polis said. “And for those who are, make sure to get that booster after six months. The data shows it’s important and very likely even more so with this omicron variant.”
“The emergency is over,” he then declared, adding that “you don’t tell people to wear a jacket when they go out in winter and force them to wear it. If they get frostbite, it’s their own darn fault.”
For those who “haven’t been vaccinated, that’s your choice. I respect that. But it’s your fault when you’re in the hospital with COVID,” Polis said.
The Democrat governor’s comments come after new restrictions were implemented in several Denver-area counties, including one that mandates businesses to require masks indoors or require customers to provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19.
Over the weekend, Colorado data shows that the number of people hospitalized in Colorado who tested positive for the CCP virus has continued to drop. Currently, about 1,329 people are hospitalized, which is down about 230 over the past week or so.
Meanwhile, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, issued an order that would require face masks or vaccine proof inside all businesses, which starts Monday, Dec. 13.
