TOPIC: Covid deaths drop to almost nothing
#205916
Re:Covid deaths drop to almost nothing 2 Months ago  
The media will of course do the Reverse Ferret and suddenly start pushing the Great Story that the world fell for the stupid hype (not, naturally, ANYTHING to do with the media). But people will still wear masks, wash hands etc (as they always should have done to avoid flu). But wyot is right; social interaction will be permanently destroyed.

Yesterday I had predicted 800 deaths "with" Covid. It was 799.

As the death rate continues to drop (everywhere; check out other countries; even those with huge past death rates are seeing massive declines as the vulnerable all die - as they would have done anyway, 5 weeks later). France - one of the Death Five - had 400 die (half our 799; different ways of coping; limited lockdowns - all restaurants open again - almost no vaccines). Germany - deaths down.

This stupid, hyped virus seems to have a time limit (as vulnerables get used up). It comes in waves (like flu) and will doubtless keep returning (like flu) even though we now have vaccines (how many???).

It's the next one that worries me. The one as lethal as Ebola; as infectious as flu. As hard to find vaccines or remedies as the Common Cold or AIDS or other deadly diseases.

We see outbreaks of ebola on and off in Africa. It is a lethal and highly infectious virus, as opposed to just highly infectious (covid). Another outbreak is occuring now that requires a modified vaccine:

I agree with you that one outcome of our response to Covid is that millions can't tell the difference between the two types of threat.

So many would now resist a lockdown for ebola if it arrived here (ignoring rules en masse next time) because of our gross over reaction to Covid, when a lockdown would be required or millions would actually die and rotting, pestilential corpses disgrace the streets of London.

(Forgive my Dickensian flourishes at breakfast time...!)

Also we have now ruined our country economically for Covid. What capacity do we have for a hypothetical ebola lockdown? What resources have we left to acquire an ebola vaccine. What ignorant resistance will there be to taking one?

We have been so irresponsible in reacting to Covid like this.
