It’s the math, stupid.
Look folks — here is reality, as I’ve maintained since this began in January: You are going to get this bug. That’s odds-on. 70%+ between now and when we have an effective vaccine that can be mass-administered if that ever happens, which it might not.
There’s simply no way around this.
Lots of people are going to die. But lots of people die anyway; they die of the flu, they die of smoking, they die of cancer, they die in car accidents. We all die.
Individual people can modify, a fair bit, the odds of getting the virus at any given time. But they probably can’t modify their risk of getting it at all.
