If this is true, as well as the rumors that LV wants to trade for Russ, that makes this division a murderers row of QBs.

hate to hear news like that. glad she seems to be ok, but the fact that you cant be there makes it really hard to deal with. This covid shit is going away lots sooner than they are telling us, with the possible exception of that one new strain, we are starting to get herd immunity in sight. Estimates are we are probably close to 120-150 million exposed at this point, add in the 20 mil or so vaccinated and we are at close to 50% of the population that have some level of immunity. They wont say it, but that is a big factor in the precipitous decline in new cases over the last several weeks. The last “spike” and all the “super spreader” holiday events finally sped the process up. It will all be over soon, and we will all sit here and wonder why the actual fuck we reacted like we did. We merely lengthened the time it took to get here, herd immunity was always the only way to make the pandemic go away

I think you misunsderstood my premise. The point was this, or any other infectious agent, once gaining a foothold in a population, will continue to spread until such time as a sufficient percentage of that population has been infected and has natural immunity, thereby decreasing the numbers that can A) be infected and B) can develop active infection that can then be passed on to others. Thats just the simple biology of how these things work. Yes, this infection can be more lethal in certain individuals than most common viruses, but that has little bearing on the necessity to achieve herd immunity to make it stop. Abatement efforts dont change the numbers, other than the amount of time needed to get there. with the infection rate of this particular species, they think something in the neighborhood of 70%, but once reaching the 50% mark you will see the number of new infections begin to decrease. And thats where we are. All the things we have done to minimize infections have lengthened the time it took to get to that percentage. I was not commenting at all on the effects of the virus, just the epidemiolgical data. We made a critical mistake early on, and we have continued doubling down on that mistake. Remember, I had this in November. I wouldnt recommend it, it was a pretty miserable 2 weeks, but for people like me, in otherwise decent health, this is not a life-threatening disease. We knew very early on from the data from Italy who was most at risk and who needed to be protected. We did basically the opposite, we protected the least susceptible, laregly against their own will, and then allowed it to run rampant among the most vulnerable. Had we taken the other approach, locked down nursing homes, had the elderly and and health compromised self-isolate and allowed the rest of the population to go about their lives normally, we would have reached this percentage much faster. I dont think we would have seen much greater total mortality, in fact, we might very well have saved lives… Read more »
