It's been really frustrating as someone who has said this is mostly political for a long time, citing data and numbers and getting called a conspiracy theorist and worse, and now officials aren't even hiding it. You're seeing more and more "after the election" and "in November."
I'm really, really tired of people saying "How could you be so inconsiderate?" when I say everything should open, and I say "Because I know that... " and then read off the current numbers of the day and calculate what it means in the larger context, demonstrate how covid is way overblown, and then they just say they know someone who died and they're worried about their grandma and therefore nothing I just said matters.
While not a perfect comparison, if we started focusing on car accidents and deaths and injuries like we did Covid, we wouldn't drive at all. Imagine if in the news every day we saw "100 new car crashes in LA, 2 new deaths" etc. It'd be horrifying (not that car crashes aren't horrifying- but we've seemed to grow numb as a society to them and all still drive frequently.
