I'm convinced that when fear takes over, the brain shuts down, and people can't think clearly. This definitely applies to how we view vaccines and infectious disease. Have you noticed any inconsistent attitudes or actions related to COVID-19, either in your personal life or in society?
Here are some of my observations. Do you have any examples of your own?
1. Do you remember this gem of a letter suggesting that the righteousness of a cause somehow affected COVID-19 transmission? :rofl https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/05/healt...rnd/index.html
"However, as public health advocates, we do not condemn these gatherings as risky for COVID-19 transmission. We support them as vital to the national public health and to the threatened health specifically of Black people in the United States. We can show that support by facilitating safest protesting practices without detracting from demonstrators' ability to gather and demand change. This should not be confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders."
2. In my area, you MUST wear a mask indoors . . . until your host seats you at your table and you start eating or drinking. Then everyone is (somehow) safe.
3. My library resembles a movie like Outbreak
. You may only browse a couple of shelves worth of books, (Hey! At least there's stuff available to check out!), and you must put books you've handled and decided not to check out into a bin, which will go to the vault for 5 days - along with all returned items - for quarantine.
Meanwhile . . . . we all go to Target and the supermarket, handle products, and return them to the shelves.
4. Some extended family met up with us. The same family member who bemoans "COV-idiots" was maskless and hugging everybody that he hadn't see in months.
