After, all-around two years, it needs to surprise no person, some are, at the very least, sick and tired with this horrendous pandemic, and even, far – more, fatigued, and sick – and- sick and tired of it, and also the impact on how we live! However, this would not, and should not justify, the utter – disregard of some, with regards to respecting the higher good, and abiding by basic, good sense, public health, protective measures! How did this become another, political issue, because of so many, apparently putting their personal/ political interests and agenda, first? How many more must get infected, hospitalized, put others, at – risk, and/ or die? Many seniors you are their battle, as contain the immune – compromised, so we still are not aware of all the potential longer – term ramifications and impacts! Why does this nation, despite its efforts and spending, have, among, the best vaccination rates, on the planet, among first – tier, developed nations? Everyone is fed up with this, and would really like, coming back to normal, but, the efforts of the minority, harms our overall efforts, along with the potential to optimize our efforts! With that in mind,this article attempt to briefly examine and review this, and why, we need to do better.
1) Conspiracy theories: For some reasons, some want to believe unfounded, opinions, and accept them, rather then facts. It began with denials, transformed to accusations, and created harmful resistance. Is there anyone, who may have not witnessed or experienced losing someone close? While, everybody is entitled to a viewpoint of their own, it isn’t, to their own personal set of facts. It is another thing if your actions only harmed you, but quite – another, gets hotter puts others,at – risk!
2) Politics: Why has this become political, like a lot of, apparently, good sense, issues, have? There is a difference between a viable solution,and well – considered, plan, in contrast to blaming and complaining, denials, and stubbornness!
3) Data and science matter: Mike Bloomberg needs to say, “In God We Trust. All others, bring data,.” History shows, it will take a science – based, plan, endorsed and held by public health, medical, and scientific personnel and experts, to make a meaningful, fact – based, efforts.
4) Mandate resistance: Although there are public health mandates, before, this indicates we are extraordinary most polarized nation, in recent memory! Just because one doesn’t agree, doesn’t mean, he knows over the experts!
Either, we proceed, within a more unified manner, or we prolong the horrors. Wake up, America, before numerous others, lose this battle! It’s approximately, each of us!
