i will let you know in ten to twenty years.
Well, at least you're on Bluemoon - so you're reading differing opinions - will this deprogram you? I hope so. At least it may get you thinking.

Science isn't partisan - it's just facts - and perhaps expert opinion on what to do given the facts.

Politics in stark opposition to science should be questioned - why are such non-expert politicians so confident in their approach - and more to the point - better informed than life-long experts in the field?

The virus is not going away we need to learn to live with it

Country’s can’t stay in lockdown, let’s be honest as a virus it’s not that deadly

Unfortunately so.

Unless, you think that somewhere between 0.5 to 2% of all individuals contracting COVID-19 will die and that roughly 3 to 10% of individuals contracting the disease will require emergency hospitalization (and subsequent long term health effects) - then I strongly disagree with you.

Watch this interview with Michael Osterholm if you're able to:
Thanks. Michael Osterholm makes a very powerful cases for not taking our eye off the Covid ball. This is also a strong case for global solutions and world wide vaccinations.

No where near 2%

That’s his specialty and I doubt any country is taking its eye off the ball but he’s not a virologist who’s field of expertise centres on the virus and mutations.
