I fail to see how "herd immunity" has happened... or will happen... please feel free to give some evidence for this nonsense.
COVID will almost definitely be less dangerous than the flu LATER.... but NOT RIGHT NOW!!
Once we have more knowledge in treating it, vaccines (or hopefully, even a cure), etc, will make it something no one thinks twice about...
Much like the measles, hepatitis, rubella, etc. today... deadly fatal, but now that we have vaccines for them, not really a problem (except for anti-vaxxers who screw it up for everyone!).
The problem is RIGHT NOW, people are treating COVID like it's just an "old people disease" and are spreading it to everyone....
Sorry, I already don't think twice about it and I didn't need a vaccine to get to this point. The case fatality rate got me to the point of not thinking twice about it. So I don't.
What really screws up the world are the demented vaccine junkies who scream at the top of their lungs until their veins pop out that a vaccine is the only thing that can save anybody. Endymio made brilliant points about the case fatality rate of COVID-19. And all you did was sit their with a blank stare on your face and go to back to your pre-conceived notions of how vaccines have more saving power than Jesus Christ himself.
It's called the novel corona virus because new makes it sound more scary and conditions people to want a vaccine more than they normally would. The "family" of corona virus has been around since the 70's.
3 months into the pandemic "We know nothing about this virus. Keep wearing your mask until we get a vaccine".
6 months into the pandemic. "We know nothing about this virus. Keep wearing your mask until we get a vaccine".
See the pattern? Stop drinking the kool-aid. Please, maybe trying incorporating some fish into your diet so you can think more clearly.
Thank you Endymio for your participation. You really laid out the case better than I think I could have done. Of course, this is not my first post on this issue and I grow tired of trying to get the vaccine junkies to see what's really going on. It's so easy to see for some of us. Very difficult for others. I guess that's the way it is. And the way it will be.
