“‘I wish it need not have happened in my time,’ said Frodo.

 

‘So do I,’ said Gandalf, ‘and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
– Fellowship of the Ring, Book 1, Chapter 2

Not only was I right about this - but evidence suggests that the severity of the virus has decreased, that there are more infections but less requiring hospitalization and ICU care. The current idea is that the total viral loads are decreasing, and that a decreased total viral load per infection is likely to result in a less severe case of Covid-19 with fewer complications. 


And, the whole idea that a mask my not prevent infection that so many anti-maskers adopted, ignores that it reduces exposure amount by any reasonable analysis - for exactly the reason I described in the blog above. 

So, masks are certainly contributing to the decreased viral loads and the lowered levels of complications arising when infections do occur. 


Counterpoints?

My wife has been saying this would be the first major step toward healthcare reform for years - at least a decade:

Bu.. but... but... he's a bombastic boor.  Interesting to see if Prez Harris reverses this.

More likely we'll catch Xer taking credit for it.

Who is paying her off?  Who are the lobbyists?

I was not expecting to get vaccinated tonight. Now I'm in a special line.

And once we got to the front of the line, they told us the folks at the back of the line were giving out bad info - so I'm still among the unclean.

My wife, though, is half way toward being among the chosen.

This is definitely the best path toward lowering costs.  Who would have ever thought that people would be in favour of not being able to comparison shop?

People have defied my expectations on any number of issues in the last 8 months or so. 

I'm kind of to the point where a supervolcano or asteroid impact seems like it might be a good idea.

Yeah, I never thought I would hope for armed revolution either, but here we are.

(I'd rather it be you, but if it turns out to be me, I suppose that is OK, too... either way, things improve for me.)
