There has been a massive over-reaction (in every walk of life) to Covid-19, and a naive presumption that 'things will eventually get better.' The public are not stupid and appreciate that this illness is on a par with the common cold, chicken pox etc. and so will not present themselves en masse for innoculation.
What about the deaths which have occurred? Give five million citizens the common cold and a significant number of old / fragile people will be pushed over the edge.
Politicians (are there any stupider people on the planet) sad attempts to stop the illness spreading have simply extended its burn out time and the public have largely had enough of their meddling in nature and karma.
In a few years time, when Covid-19 will certainly still be with us, everyone will look back and likely laugh at most everyone dressing up as highwaymen and being terrified at their own shadows due to politicians feeling an overwhelming compulsion to fight wars and be adored.
I know I’m not going to convince you but I know multiple healthy, young people that have been in the ICU. While the kids just had a fever and cough the parents nearly died. It is not the cold or the flu.
I had it in March and while I ran easy miles in the 7 min range now I’m 9-10 and dead after 3 miles. That was 6 months ago.
I know you don’t think it’s real, because to you it’s not. And I do think we can live normally with this, just by choosing take out, washing hands and continuing thing like distance learning and limiting large gatherings. Cases are rising as schools in many states return. They bring it home.
I hope you or your loved ones don’t get it. It’s scary to wonder if you are going to lose a loved one.
