I simply cannot sum up the stupidity of the last 2.5 years any better than Joe Biden just did.
“The reality is that BA.5 means many of us are still going to get COVID, even if we take the precautions,”
If you want the truth you could ask a child who has not yet learned to lie or a senile old man who might just forget to lie. The script writers must be livid that Biden’s handlers miscalculated his Adderall dose. The resulting chemical imbalance let him accidentally tell a very important truth; nothing we have done has had any effect on COVID. The lockdowns, social distancing, masks, and even the vaccines have not worked and will not work. You can take all of the precautions and you will probably get COVID anyway.
This is an airborne virus, you do not need direct contact to get infected. Anyone who thinks for even 10 seconds about the implications could tell you none of the Non Pharmaceutical Interventions, i.e. lockdowns and other restrictions, would work. The same can be said for the vaccines, although I admit that it took more than 10 seconds to get there. Understanding that the vaccines would not work took me a few hours of internet research and high school level science.
Because I took the time to do real vaccine research I was certain that the protection would be temporary and that herd immunity could not be achieved through vaccination. People would still need to be exposed before the pandemic would subside. Unfortunately in May of 2021 when I drew that conclusion I did not have the Moderna data that showed 60% of vaccinated people do not have a proper immune response after infection. Now that we are vaccinating it is possible that we will never reach herd immunity.
We did not need to invest much time or intellectual effort to know that none of the proposed mitigation measures would work. It has been 2.5 years and somehow most people have not found the 2 hours it takes to understand we are doing the wrong thing. Even Medical professionals have not taken the time to understand what is going on. Worse than that they have abandoned all common sense.
This M.D. and his family followed all the precautions and got sick anyway. To anyone with any common sense the logical conclusion is that none of the interventions worked. But this clown thinks his kid got infected because someone, somewhere else, did not follow the same precautions that did not work for his child. Am I the only person alarmed that a person this stupid can become a doctor?
If this is the level of intelligence in our medical community and society as a whole we will never discover why so many young Ontario doctors die after their boosters. Or why so many Australians died after the vaccination programs. Australia had 8513 excess deaths in the first 4 months of 2022 which for Australians would be summer and fall. This is 17% above normal and 40% of them were not COVID. Governments injected everyone with an experimental treatment right before large numbers of people died. Talk about a huge coincidence and gigantic medical mystery. If only I had a few minutes to think about this I might come up with an answer. I can’t do that though because I am far too worried about climate change.
