So you say the apocalypse is coming ???Yeah well they fired me from the suicide prevention line. I did cut way down on phone traffic. I just like to make people think about the real world around us. Hopefully it will help someone be successful or at least not lose their money. 30 years ago , I was a total optimist. I guess I have become much more pessimistic or realistic.
Last Spring I told my friends, that the world should have quarantined everyone over 60. Then force everyone else to attend rock concerts and sporting events and have nightclubs open with free cocktails. Within 2 months we would have reached herd immunity and resumed our normal lives.It is really easy to have hindsight. Also I am not sure the lockdowns actually saved lives in the long run. The death toll numbers arrived at the same percentages either way. It probably helped with hospitals being overrun but many people in lockdown were infected. Also those businesses dont matter unless it is yours and you are the one losing everything and going broke. And what about all the employees of those businesses that lost everything? I wonder how many deaths are a direct result of covid policies and lockdowns. Easily that number is in the hundreds of thousands and may equal the total number of deaths. What if you were dying and not allowed to have family members visit. Can you imagine being all alone with no family at your side and not even being able to say goodbye. What is civil about that? I disagree with your lockdown proposition. This disease was so contagious it was inevitable to have a large death toll until a vaccine , cure or herd immunity was reached. They should have locked down all the extremely vulnerable and provided food delivery, services , etc through safe secure sterile delivery. The vast majority of deaths were in the vulnerable group. THAT would have reduced the death toll, caused us to reach herd immunity much quicker and not destroyed large numbers of peoples lives and businesses. The real culprit here is a bioweapons lab that created and released this on the world. Why are they not being held responsible?
My sister got covid. Only lost her taste, Nothing else.My thoughts exactly but give people over 60 the option to not Q. I am 60 and in very good physical shape. Had Covid. lasted 4 days like the flu then lingered a little for a week. A lot has to do with peoples physical condition and age.
Although my sister lost her taste when she got covid, I think it runs in the family, as I never did have any taste 😀Probably has a lot to do with your immune system and exposure to other pathogens. I have been all over the third world and sick with all kinds of weird stuff. Even got dengue in El Salvador. They say certain blood types are a lot more vulnerable. Who really knows. There has been so much misinformation on this ,it is ridiculous. Lee
That is interesting. The rich must not be suffering any economic loss during the pandemic.Saw this today while poking around the net.
