For the first time since the 2021-2022 college football season, a game has been postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak. The remarkable and moronic part is that the team that has the outbreak is 99% fully vaccinated.
Once again proof that this ridiculous vaccine does nothing other than make you feel good. It doesn’t stop the spread of Covid, so what’s the point. That’s what vaccines are supposed to do by the way.
On Saturday, the California Golden Bears lost to the Arizona Wildcats after being forced to play with less than 50 scholarship players, due to 24 players and five coaches who were held out for Covid-19 protocols.
However on Tuesday, the University announced the postponement of Cal’s upcoming game against USC due to additional football players testing positive for Covid-19.
“It was a difficult decision to postpone this Saturday’s game against USC,” Cal Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton said. “We know how important every one of our games is to our student-athletes, especially our seniors who have been incredible representatives of the program, but it was the right thing to do. Due to additional impact on specific position groups, we have decided to postpone Saturday’s game. We have had multiple COVID-19 positives within our program, and we are taking every step we can to mitigate the spread and protect the greater community.”
The University has stated that the football program is 99% vaccinated, at least 44 have tested positive for Covid-19 over the last week according to Berkeley’s Department of Public Health.
“Berkeley Public Health continues to work closely with University Health Services to help contain and respond to a major COVID-19 outbreak involving the coaches, students, and staff in the Cal Football program,” the statement says. “All of these 44 lab-confirmed cases involve people infected with highly contagious COVID-19, which spreads easily unless public health safeguards are used.”
Monday, Cal quarterback Chase Garbers, who missed the Arizona game posted on social media voicing his frustrations over the ridiculous and bogus Covid-19 protocols.
“We have worked too hard to have someone take this all away from us,” Garbers wrote.“It is wrong. We deserve answers and transparent communication.”
California linebacker Luc Bequette also chimed in regarding testing, claiming that the University Health Services threatened to arrest vaccinated players who refused to test. Wait, what?
“UHS told us we could be arrested for refusing to test as vaccinated individuals with no symptoms,” Bequette posted to Twitter. “If I understand correctly, I can go to San Francisco, steal a bunch of items in a Walgreens, and not be arrested. However, if I refuse a test in Berkeley, I can be… “
Then the spokesperson for Berkeley’s Department of Public Health put out a statement trying to blame the players on Tuesday night. You know, highly conditioned healthy fully vaccinated athletes didn’t follow protocols, so that’s why this is happening to them. What absolute crap this is of a lie and excuse.
“Cases emerged in an environment of ongoing failure to abide by public health measures,” the statement reads. “People in the program did not: Get tested when sick, stay home when sick, [or wear] masks indoors.”
“These simple measures keep people safe,” the statement continues. “Failing to do so results not only in individual infections, sickness, and worse, but also threatens the safety of all around them – especially those with compromised immune systems.”
The game has since been moved to December 4th, the players no longer believe the Department of Health or the University, and it looks as though a few on that woke campus might just be waking up. Maybe a little bit at least.
