This Covid-19 drama is giving me whiplash.
All these conflicting opinions, "Facts", etc:
It was a weapon from China.
No, it was a weapon from the US.
No, it's just a natural fluke.
No, it came from a lab.
No, it's fake and the gubment is using it to take away our rights.
No, it's real but it's being used as a political weapon (that much we actually know is true)
Masks don't work.
Masks save lives.
The deaths are fake.
The deaths are very real.
They're inflating the death rate.
It's all a scare tactic.
It's very real and we should be scared.
If you go shopping without a mask you will die.
If you go shopping with a mask you will die.
You will die.
You won't die.
Nobody has died of covid-19
Everyone has died or will die of covid-19
etc etc etc
What is it, folks? Say it with me: "I don't know."
It's pretty clear that nobody knows diddly about the bug other than that it's spreading through droplets, contact, and social media.
I want to get to the bottom of this mystery as much as anyone else on here does, but the amount of contradiction, conflict, this that and the other is
driving me nuts. One minute it's a common cold, the next it's a lethal killer that gives strokes to 20 year olds. Nothing makes any sense. With all
the strong opinions on this thing, it's hard to say who to believe. Even the "experts" are wishy washy.
I'm just going to keep washing my hands as usual. I never liked to get too close to people, anyway. It's not making much difference to me. Whether
it's bad, real, mild, fake, whatever, I don't want it, but man, the amount of back and forth is just UGH. I don't know who to believe so I'm just
going to refrain from even forming an opinion.
Ok, rant over. Gotta admit that was a pretty ranty rant. Dang, that felt good.
