Do you think it's all overblown? Not that serious? Is it that you just don't believe you could infect someone? That you do believe it's serious, but don't yet feel satisfied that the current vaccines will drastically cut the risk? Can you forsee a time when you might be prepared to accept that a vaccine is the way forward? Are you prepared to limit contacts, keep your space, and wear a mask for a few more years until enough data comes in to quell your fears, or do you prefer everybody maskless, and if we die, or we infect someone else and they die, so be it? Fatalistic? Something else?
Thank you, those are good and reasonable questions.
As a medical problem, based on my understanding of the known facts is that the Government response to this virus was totally wrong. The facts pointed to isolating the people in the known high risk groups, not shutting the economy down. Things like putting Covid patients INSIDE the very highest risk group (nursing and hospice facilities) was just plain obvious evil stupidity. Just one of many stupid moves.
In my opinion the ‘lockdown' of the economy will result in much more human suffering than Covid-19.
Consider the current situation in the US. Notice that as of yet they are not talking about halting the reopening of businesses bur are recommending masks, isolation, vaccine. So far that’s reasonable.
But IF the first wave response was a good approach, AND the Delta variant is as bad as said, then the logical thing to do would be an even more draconian lockdown. Behind the scenes, they know the disaster this would cause and how it didn’t work. So why do you think they aren’t doing it? 'Logically', they should be screaming from on high for lockdown.
The one thing I do fear is that 'they' WANT to destroy the status quo in hopes that they can rebuild things in a 'new order'. Not that there are not things that could be improved, but the people driving Covid fear are not the ones that will do that.
As for my personal reasons for not vaxing, I will admit that they do not apply to anyone who isn’t already comfortable with the idea of death. For that reason I do not make recommendations pro or con for others. Note that I have taken all the other usual vaccines other than CV19.
Of course any attempt at a medical science argument for not taking the “vaccine” is immediately scoffed at. So I won’t try here. But there is a legitimate argument to be made. And, This IS a completely new experimental type of treatment that we do NOT know the long term consequences of.
