Another hell of this situation is we have no idea what flu strains are going to rage this winter after an unusual cycle of being suppressed.

It appears governments have collectively decided that ICUs won't be completely overwhelmed everywhere, so Covid can just burn its way through. Callous, ghoulish - like aliens invaded and the military just decided to send out public advisories about the kind of clothing that delays incineration.

Like, I know the crazies would be insisting that sunblock made them invincible, I'm not saying you can save everyone.

But... at least... maybe... TRY to save the people who can't protect themselves? The immune-compromised, the elderly whose risk statistics even vaccinated nobody ever seems to talk about (better than not vaccinated, but still well below the population average).
