What makes you think that vaccines will fix anything? There are countless flu vaccines every single year, yet there are millions and millions of flu cases every year. That's because viruses are very resistant and mutate constantly. Mutating is like their whole thing. So what do you think will happen after we get a vaccine for this one? First of all, not everyone will get a shot, most people probably won't even bother getting one. So the disease will just spread further and it will become a normal everyday disease like we have so many of. What do you think causes a cold?
This massive outrage about a thing that we had to deal with for millennia every single day, that you had to deal with every single day since you were born, is just ridiculous. And you can absolutely count on the fact that the outrage and massive overreaction to this virus will hurt much much more people in the long run than the virus ever could. Anxiety, stress, an overburdened health system that cannot function properly because a light cold is treated as if it's the black plague, a heavily damaged economy, all these things will hurt so many people. I don't even want to think about the amount of people who got their treatments for their serious illnesses delayed, because so many resources are wasted on this bullshit. And you, with your panic far removed from reality, are at the forefront of causing all that harm to others who just want to live their lives. Congratulations.
The people who are at risk of dying will get the vaccine..ya, know and not die, but your self serving morals aside with no regard for the already sick or old how do you see any western nation handling the numbers of critical patients if they numbers keep on the path they are now and land where the experts suggest? Where do the already sick and hospitalized go? You can't just put a Covid patient next to a cancer patient without safegaurds. Hell, even the same building is unethical, where do the cancer patients go? If you have it figured please tell your local offical to alert the WHO that you've got to solition to the problem and everyone is all good now.
It seems you have absolutely no idea how hospitals operate. Everything you worry about is already common place. Do you have any idea how many people die every year due to infectious diseases in hospitals? We sit in waiting rooms close together with a bunch of people who could make you sick at any moment. Babies die constantly from mild illnesses they contract in hospitals. Nothing that is currently happening with COVID-19 is any different than what clinics have to deal with every single day. The only difference is that it's now public and people like you are scared because they didn't know numbers before this. This whole containment business is solely due to public hysteria. Because if they didn't do that, people like you would go haywire. If you treated every similar disease like COVID-19, hospitals would not be able to function anymore. There simply do not exist enough healthcare professionals and it really is not necessary in the first place.
All the extra rules for people and the correct hygiene etiquette is no different from what any person should do every flu season. Don't travel, wash your hands, wear a mask when you're sick are all things everyone should do anyway all the time. And if people did that we would have far less diseases than we have now. Just because we gave a disease its own name doesn't make it special. I have yet to see anything that makes this virus special or particularly dangerous, apart from the overblown coverage of it.
