“Flatten the curve” has become “prevent the spread”. We were supposed to keep the infection rates at a manageable level for medical providers. That’s it. There was always going to be new infections. Sars-CoV-2 is a virus and viruses spread.
Just think about it for a second. A virus that has a 99% survivability rate is the reason that we have given up all of our rights and freedoms, shutdown our entire economy, put millions of people out of work, probably for years, run up record government debt, none of which can ever be repaid, instilled a high level of fear in the population, created a surveillance state, probably will be permanent,,…..and we did all that willingly…happily….eagerly.
Is that what we agreeing to back in March?
