I wanted to add on to this, because Id appreciate your thoughts
With our absolute laser focus on a single virus/disease, particularly with a reliance on testing, I think we run the very real risk of completely
overlooking ..anything.. else that might be a public health concern.
I think that is exactly what happened all throughout the earlier months this year. I think it is largely due to some "controversial" factors, but it
could just as easily be other illnesses or viruses too (or all of the above). I mean, what happens if two novel viruses spread through the population?
We are so focused on one, treating and testing that, that we would just be baffled. Perhaps for much, much longer than we should be.
Given the relative prevalence of novel viruses, I dont think this is all that crazy of a concept. When we build our entire response as we have, it is
very, very easy to become irrationally myopic.
That conversation extends right into things like mass disinfecting as well. I cant see that having any long term benefits, quite the opposite, but for
a specific, short term threat it makes some sort of intuitive sense.
Personally, I fully expected a spike in illness as lockdowns were lifted. Our immune systems were largely compromised by everything from our approach
to constant elevated stress levels. Thats with normal human behavior and movement..
With our total focus on covid, everything would have been filtered through that perception regardless of veracity. Now, we had a massive surge in
human behavior and movement, more stress, etc. from protests/riots, plus a medical system that is in rough shape due to our decisions earlier in the
I believe its orchestrated, but even if it isnt, we seem to be continually making the decision to shoot ourselves in the foot all the while thinking
we are doing the "right thing." Seems we so rely on these Authorities that we are totally confused when we are walking with a permanent
