On Tuesday, Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) used fear to push New Mexicans to get the jab for the novel China Virus, sharing an article from the left-wing site NPR about what they are calling the “dangerous Delta variant,” a “mutant strain.”
While sharing the article, Heinrich wrote, “Seems to me like a pretty good reason to get vaccinated. Let’s all do our part.”
According to NPR, “All the vaccines authorized for use in the U.S. appear, in general, to provide powerful protection against all the variants, including Delta. But the rapid spread of the variants is still raising concern because of the large number of people who remain unvaccinated.”
However, Heinrich did not opine on one section from the article quoting a Johns Hopkins University epidemiologist, Justin Lessler, who said, “For the most part, it’s a moderate resurgence.” Lessler, who helps coordinate the University’s virus hub, added, “We’re not having massive epidemics at a national level, but we have this kind of continuation of the virus just sticking around and keeping us on our toes.”
Although the supposed strain is reportedly more easy to transmit, according to the liberal outlet, it does not appear as deadly as the original strain of the virus (which carries a survival rate close to 100%).
The use of fear by Heinrich is just the latest Democrat ploy to push citizens to get the jab with the supposed goal of reaching a threshold of inoculation. Gov. Lujan Grisham told KOB 4 on Monday that her goal for New Mexico was to reach 75% fully jabbed by August.
