    We just live in a fucked up time. I’m so tired of everything today.

      The current “strategy,” worldwide it seems, is for people to just catch it and get over it and get enough immunity to make it go away.

      Yeah, I know. Hollow laughter.

      1) Immunity to this coronavirus only lasts some 3-4 months. 2) The more people catch it, the more human “petri dishes” you have for the virus to come up with new variants.

      The current “strategy” guarantees a problem forever.

      The only actual solution is to slow down transmission. 1) Rapid vaccination of everybody everywhere, using a vaccine that shuts down the *current* variant, and is fast enough to stop transmission before a new variant can emerge. 2) All the other public health measures that slow transmission: masking, distancing, spending the money to get real indoor ventilation, and spending the money to get UVC germicidal lights in indoor areas where people gather (restaurants, bars, gyms, churches, etc etc etc).

      The only place doing any of this, but in a punitive way unfortunately and with a not-very-effective vaccine, is China.

      We’re so far away from even talking about real solutions at a government level, which is the only level that could make consistent implementation, that all I feel is more hollow laughter.

        When people complain about new Covid variants that aren’t very susceptible to the existing vaccines, I just say “Evolution in action!”

        Yep, if most people had gotten vaxxed as soon as they could, and practiced reasonable precautions, we’d have it under control.

    So I’m watching the tRump documentary Unprecedented…and so far, it is positive view towards tRump. So let’s see if that changes. I’m 25 minutes in.
