CNN Story Perfectly Captures The Mass COVID Neuroticism Of 2021

    This article was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge. 

    The below CNN story appropriately ran on December 31st, marking the end of a tumultuous 2021 dubbed by many headlines to be “the year of the coronavirus vaccine”. It was also a year of general Covid lunacy as people’s faith in the public “science and health experts” began to wane, but also as true believers in the dogma of “trust the science” refused to allow an inkling of doubt, even as highly vaxxed populations saw numbers of cases soar.

    “Chicago woman quarantined in airplane bathroom for 3 hours after testing positive for Covid-19 mid-flight” – the CNN headline reads. She locked herself in the bathroom while en route from Chicago to Reykjavik, Iceland (she planned to go on to visit family in Switzerland) – after panicking upon discovering that a sore throat was the onset of coronavirus. CNN seems to actually hail her as some kind of hero of public conscientiousness. The start of the story perfectly encapsulates the kind of neurosis and failed precautions and anxiety-inducing “health rituals” which have taken hold over vast segments of the population. The woman took no less than seven Covid tests just before the flight:

    Before the flight, Fotieo told CNN she took two PCR tests and about five rapid tests, all of which came back negative. But about an hour and a half into the flight, Fotieo started to feel a sore throat.

    “The wheels started turning in my brain and I thought, ‘OK, I’m going to just go take a test.’ It was going to make me feel better,” Fotieo told CNN. “Immediately, it came back positive.”

    And here’s the kicker: the woman who gave herself seven Covid tests but learned on the 8th that she had the virus was fully vaccinated and had received the booster.

    But CNN still reminds the reader that it’s the “unvaccinated population” that we have to worry about here:

    Fotieo, who is fully vaccinated and has received the booster, is an early childhood teacher in Chicago. She tests consistently since she works with an unvaccinated population.

    When she got her results in the airplane bathroom, over the Atlantic Ocean, she said she started to panic.

    “The first flight attendant I ran into was Rocky. I was hysterical, I was crying,” Fotieo said. “I was nervous for my family who I just had dinner with. I was nervous for the other people on the plane. I was nervous for myself.”

    Upon leaving the bathroom and the airplane when the flight touched down in Iceland, she was administered two more Covid tests, which both came back positive. So within a short span, that makes ten total Covid tests.

    And let’s not forget the at least three vaccine doses she said she had which were supposed to “prevent” getting Covid-19 in the first place (preventing infection is the longstanding definition of what a vaccine is supposed to do, the recent CDC change to the literal definition notwithstanding).

    Her ten-day quarantine in a Red Cross hotel in Reykjavik appears to have gone smoothly, with no mention of serious or severe symptoms.

    After all this, she told CNN, “Honestly it has been an easy experience.” It appears that for now her “faith” in the just “trust the science” narrative remains unshaken. But for the rest of us, the saga is a perfectly absurd demonstration of all that’s been “learned” from the Covid lunacy of 2021.

      1. “trust the science”

        As opposed to understanding the science?

        You’ll notice the actual “science” you are supposed trust is never actually stated and the “trust” is actually intended to be put in the statements and opinions of the people that make them but that won’t state it.

        That’s because they’re using political science, not physical science.

      2. The sheeple have NOT learned to NEVER trust what you are being told UNTIL YOU verify for yourself. and that does NOT mean just looking at another website, LOL
        STUPID-IS-AS- STUPID-DOES and that has become VERY obvious how stupid many people are as of today!

      3. There’s scientific theory and there’s scientific law.
        Scientific theory is a guess.
        I have a lot of those.

        • I guess we’re all scientists then! Who knew…

          • Theorist until you get that big fat government check…

          • I was sort of a mad scientist when I was a kid. It’s only gotten worse lol 😛

      4. The girl this article is a classic textbook neurotic, which is a personality disorder. The obsession to test herself for covid constantly, even though circumstances haven’t changed, defies rational thought, she is truly ill. She would be so regardless whether covid existed or not. However, this covid pandemic is what is presently feeding her neurosis. The saddest part is instead of getting psychological treatment for her, her behavior is likely applauded. This in turn validates her behavior, causing her to exhibit even more irrational behavior. It is possible should the authorities declare that covid no longer presents a threat she may become suicidal.
