There Is A Comet
I’ve been repeating here forever: We cannot eradicate Covid. It is endemic, like the flu, and we have to learn to live with it. Forcing small businesses (the largest provider of net new jobs in the country) to go out of business is the creation of deaths, not the saving of lives. We live with diseases through vaccination and other prophylactic measures. Omicron is highly infectious, but the symptoms are predominantly mild and deaths rare among the vaccinated.
Last night I watched “Don’t Look Up,” a satire about a comet headed directly to Earth, an extinction event, and as the actors watched it many said, “There is no comet, Don’t look up.”
