    Right, but covid 0 is not going to happen. We will never eliminate it and we can't just keep up this weird status quo.

      Data from the first week of December. Unvaccinated people are 97x more likely to die from Covid than those vaccinated and boosted.

      Also.

        Oh I get it, it's here to stay. But I'm gonna let the researchers tell me what the best path is to castrate it as just another cold. If that means open up everything now, fine, I miss hockey and ogling pretty girls (as an Ivy fan these are distinct activities with no intersection). But no businessmen or politicians get a vote. Only the people who can find their as-s with two hands and a map.

          It's already there if you're boosted. According to the CDC, the deaths/100k for boosted individuals is ~0.1/100k. For influenza in an average year, it's 0.3/100k not taking into account vaccination status.

          Edit: I'm sorry, it's actually higher than that for flu. It's 1.8/100k

                Once we get the vaccine approved for <5, I don't think we can continue to hold society at bay because a very small fraction can't get vaxxed. These are likely the same people who can't get the flu or pneumonia or any of the other mitigable ugly contagious diseases. Pfizer's antiviral is showing promise and we may still be able to get new MAbs on the market that work. We have treatment options now.

                It's going to be a bloodbath at the polls if we keep schools even remote or have mask mandates etc. NPI mandates are going to be anchors around the neck of anyone who requires them.

                I'm not going to fault someone if they wear a mask or don't go to the movies or stay at home. I'm just at the point where I can't stay at home anymore. Call me selfish, but when we've reached the stage where Covid has run out of bodies, the hospitals aren't full, and it's as manageable As the flu, I'm done.

                  They have to make the choice that is best for them. We can't be the people who say "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" and then basically hold everyone in a holding pattern because some people can't get vaxxed. That is beyond hypocritical.

                  If masks help the ones who can't get vaxxed should wear them in situations where they are at risk. It isnt like there is going to be laws outlawing masks just because the world re-opens. People wore masks before when they were immunocompromised or had other risks.

                  We all sacrificed so we could get to this point...it is time.

                                Fair.

                                I didn't mean to come across as trying to convince you (or anyone) to agree with it. So hopefully it didn't come across that way. Was more curious if you thought I was out to lunch on that. :-)
