While we were counting the record number of votes, America broke another record: 116,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in 1 day. Are people just giving up on fighting the virus and waiting for a vaccine to save them?
I think we are tired. Unfortunately, a new spate of deaths ma fix the relaxed attitude. I have to remind myself that familiar does not equal safe. I think people are too comfortable with their house mates and relatives.
I do take heart that the fatality rate is lower. We have gotten better at treating it. I don't put much stock in the vaccine. It will likely be only about 50% efficacious. From the government's big picture standpoint, that might be a good thing, but it is not good enough for me to feel safe.
I think so. I think covid fatigue has taken hold and many people under 50 are tired of living by covid's rules. They're basically saying, if you're old stay home. We can't take it anymore. I don't know to what degree that's true but it's certainly partly true.
Apparently so, or maybe they just think their God will save them from being infected or from getting sick or dying. Who knows? I just know that a lot of people are acting recklessly, selfishly, and stupidly. Kind of like their voting choices.
In case the Tokyo Olympics are canceled, they will still have an opportunity to chant, "We're number one!"
Of course you're correct. We've got to get back to the pandemic.
We've had enough of official policy that deals with Covid-19 the way we deal with racism, deny it exist and hope for the best.
That "cure" Trump was betting on might be beyond our science for a long time or not, but we're playing Russian roulette so far.
