Vaccine Will not Help Reopen Anything

It is Already Blown Out of Proportion

Covid-19 Vaccine, Reopen

I am watching the whole thing unfold with a stoic frown.

Lynch Them!

With the pandemic becoming more and more widespread: Journalists, bloggers, sportswriters, soccer moms, feminists, PETA, vegans almost every group with a common cause, went ahead and started throwing theories, obscure scientific studies and created a smorgasbord of irrelevant scientific reasons to force people into accepting that lockdown is the only way out of this apocalypse. What is worrying is, whole subject gradually become taboo. The second a person states anything slightly different than what mass media feeds us, said person is demonized on the spot by the society. Lynching people for not believing or disobeying these draconian measures would only turn them into scapegoats. It is clear that it is not the the duty of the common citizen to judge his/her peers on such complicated subjects.

Coronavirus polarizes us, can we reopen?

We are flawed

Epidemiological studies are delicate issues and should be left to professionals to discuss. Science is not black and white. I feel further obliged to emphasize that Science is not a democracy. The debate of lockdown, should not have been a debate at all.

Fundamental Problem

Developing a vaccine will not solve the fundamental problem. As long as people are so easily manipulated and maintain a herd mindset, lockdowns and such extreme measures are going to be an ever going social debate even long after a vaccine is developed and distributed. Coronavirus and its effects are amplifying our inherent hatred towards the opposing ideas and it supersedes the ramifications of the disease itself.
