Since March 2020, the world hasn't been the same.
Initially, I thought lockdowns made sense because we knew nothing about how dangerous the virus was.
However, now, it is blatantly obvious that the virus is not that dangerous for most people.
80% of deaths are caused by 20% of the infected patients (the vulnerable ones).
So, instead of fucking up the global economy and social lives of billions, why not get the vulnerable to shield (stay home)? The majority of cases are asymptomatic anyway, so it beats me why people panic so much over rising cases when the risk of serious disease to the average individual is so low.
A common argument is that younger members of the family can pass it on to the vulnerable, to which my response is:
1 Stay home and shield if that's you.
2 Follow these "measures" when interacting with the vulnerable at home (a little far-fetched, I agree, yet it's possible). Still more convenient as a whole than asking billions to self-isolate.
Elon Musk, Jordan Belfort, and Brian DeChesare agree on this too.
I'm not saying the virus is a hoax. It is very real. However, the cure has been worse than the disease. Thoughts?
