In this post yesterday, I mentioned that I had heard that by next month, all adults 18+ would be eligible to receive the vaccine.
One anonymous commenter said it made no sense for the young and healthy
I concur, but note that you're expecting any of this to make sense.
I was listening to a local talk radio show show yesterday. They were interviewing the Commanding General of Fort Polk and one of them asked him about Covid at Fort Polk. He answered that their 14-day rolling average was 2 or 3 cases for the entire pandemic. He said that early in the pandemic, they took some precautions, but generally, soldiers are young and healthy, so they went on with the mission.
There is very little about the official response that makes sense, especially from an historical perspective. We quarantined healthy people, and in some cases (nursing homes) moved sick patients into congregant settings, which seemed to spread the disease to the most vulnerable. We designated entire segments of our society as "non-essential". We restricted the rights of healthy people to the point where the economy of many areas virtually collapsed. We closed schools, deriving our children of education.
There isa growing body of evidence to suggest that none of it worked to slow the spread of the virus, and can only be explained as an attempt to re-make American society as a grand experiment in social engineering. None of this makes any sense.
