  1. Come under control? By what? Draconian health measures bought us time for vaccines, but clearly they will not “control” this virus as it mutates more quickly the vaccine development curve. Vaccination isn’t holding long enough to generate herd immunity even with the strains we have. Let alone the ones coming.

    It is bizarre to suggest that any measures are reasonable, to protect just a single life from Covid. Public health measures generated quite the pestilence during the lockdown. Domestic violence, suicides, drug overdoses, and some spectacular surges in traffic collision rates. Child abuse and child suicide rates went THROUGH THE ROOF.

    No, we clearly cannot “control” this virus with tools we have, or are projected to have. The only people who believe this, are steered by political sources rather than scientific sources.

    Our neighbors need to be sane, get vaccinated and follow reasonable health directives to manage surges. But our local medical professionals need to be more BALANCED and consider the whole picture.
