It has been over a year since the Covid19 Pandemic struck the world. What should you do now? First, I am not a Doctor, I do not even have a background in the medical field. My background is in the security and lock business. I do have a lot of common sense and I can separate the hype from reality.
Unfortunately, it was an election year when this virus hit. That made it political. Both parties should be ashamed of themselves. I honestly believe that if politics were not involved less people would have died. Decisions were made based on politics not what was the best for the American people. That continues today.
The news outlets have also turned political. I remember a time that when you tuned into the news you felt that you were getting the truth with no bias. Today that is also very different, and that difference has also cost American lives. The news media is very quick to report anything without doing their own research. This causes them to give the wrong information to people, again costing lives.
Fortunately, people have caught on to this and now get their news form multiple sources that they trust. Therefore, newspapers are closing down, and people are “cutting the cord” going to what they want to watch by streaming.
So, what should you do Now? Well, it seems that infections, hospitalization, and deaths are going down. The consensus from the Medical Experts is that by fall we should be back to normal, whatever that is. You should do what seems right to you. Use your common sense. Get your news from as many different sources as you can.
In my opinion everyone should get the vaccine. I realize that there has been some resistance from some people. I think that this resistance is age related. Older people over 60 were quick to get the vaccine when offered, after all they were the age group that was dying. The younger generations not so much.
Think of it this way over 95% of every American as been vaccinated against Polio, measles, mumps, and other childhood diseases. How many Children and Babies would have died if their parents refused to get them vaccinated.
As adults getting a vaccine is your choice, do your research, make sure you research multiple reputable sources. Look for sources that DO NOT agree with your position, so you can get a clear picture of the other side. Then make the decision that is best for you.
