It’s Over?

The CDC says we can now take off our masks. Anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers now believe the pandemic is over and they can go back to normal, which they never left in the first place.

Is the pandemic of Covid 19 truly over? Did the Influenza pandemic of 1918 ever stop? No, which is we get flu shots every fall. The same will be true of Covid 19. We already see variants, the mutations of the original virus. It mutates the same as the original influenza virus did.

I am not a doctor, but I have my doubts that Covid 19 will ever be eradicated. I didn’t always trust doctors, but I do now. I’ve learned the hard way what happens when you don’t. It’s harder getting sick than it is taking precautions against the illness.

I have my doubts that Covid will ever go away. I don’t see how it will end between the mutated variants and those who refuse to do the most logical things (social distance, wear masks, and getting the vaccine).

They had the same problems with people in 1918… anti-maskers were as adamant as they are today. And a lot of people refused to get flu shots as soon as they were available. I know because I was one of them. Now I get a yearly flu shot as well as pneumonia and now two Covid 19 vaccines.

So how do I see my future?

I am never shaking hands again.

Continue wearing a facemask, especially during flu and cold season. Maybe not as much in the summertime when doors and windows can be opened.

Get a yearly flu shot and a booster, if required (and I’m sure it will be).

Stay home in the fall and winter, continue getting take out, and only going out in the summertime… maybe.

Listen to the scientists and doctors and only listen to politicians who use scientific evidence.

Interact with people who care about others.

Appreciate essential workers, always, from now on and give them a livable wage for the work they do.

I will try to learn about things that I know nothing about, and that education is books, classes, periodicals, and not on social media. Social media can be a good start, but not the end all be all.

A quote from a medium post inspired this blog post:

“This isn’t paranoia speaking, or trauma. This is critical thinking at work.”
