Ten Lessons We Are Failing to Learn from Covid-19

1. Covid-19 isn't a political game that can be won

There are a lot of politicians and a lot of people outside of politics who believe that this virus is actually the fault of a political party. No political party caused Covid-19 and yet, listen to five minutes of politicians and people going back and fourth from opposing parties, and you'd think they did. This is not a Republican, Democratic, Conservative, Liberal virus because we're all dying of it. Period.

2. Everything scientists and doctors know about Covid is not fake news

It is unbelievable that people who have never spent five seconds in a lab or doing any type of research outside of some Buzzfeed article all of a sudden think they know WAY more than people who have studied viruses and diseases and their spread and transmission their whole entire lives. I don't know about you, but I don't give scissors to my 5 year old nephew and tell him to cut my hair if I want it to come out right for a reason!

3. People are not expendable

Some people are so incredibly selfish as to not give AF about anyone else including apparently themselves. They sit around talking about how this is natural selection at its finest, and so what if a few old people and sickly people die. There are 45 million Americans with underlying health conditions and it's not just the elderly. Add to that, it's not just those with underlying conditions or the elderly that are getting sick. Thanks to complete ignorance, the virus is spreading to younger and younger populations, a lot whom we are now seeing in hospital beds on respirators. You might not care at this moment but what happens when your trash isn't being picked up, or there is no one to teach your kids, or you can't get a doctors appointment because those people have died. Each death affects each of us and will affect more and more things the longer this goes on. We're already starting to see the effects.

4. Doing nothing isn't helping

This whole idea that we all need so much freedom as to allow no masks or any precautions at all, has not worked. It hasn't. If it had, numbers would not be on the rise as fast as they are and we would all be back to life as we know. Guess what, we've tried your way, and it's failed, it's time to actually try doing something that can safe our lives because ignoring this and just hoping for the best is not going to make it go away.

5. Testing is not the only reason cases are on the rise

Testing will only give you a partial snap shot of cases on the rise, but what you really need to look at is how many people now as opposed to last month have actually landed in the hospital. Say all you want about how testing is the ONLY reason numbers are rising but that DOES NOT explain why hospital cases are rising at an exponential rate because no one is just going to the hospital and being hooked up to ventilators for the fun of it. You cannot explain that one away.

6. This virus doesn't give a damn about your so called rights

This is just laughable to see people protesting for their rights to walk around and infect people. Look around. Your so called rights aren't making Covid disappear any faster. Have things magically gotten better because you went outside with a poster and an AK-47 and screamed about how unfair life is because someone is asking you to wear a mask? Has your job gotten back to normal? How is your dating life? Are your kids back to school like normal? Did you wake up and everyone was suddenly cured of the virus? Virus and disease are the great equalizers because they can't be beaten with money, or your race, or your political party, or your protests. They don't care what you think or feel or your status in society no matter how bad you think you can make this thing to bend to your will. YOU WILL LOSE EVERY TIME.

7. Masks are not completely useless

Are you telling me that someone open mouth coughing and sneezing into your face is something you are fine with....on a good day...let alone in a Corona Virus pandemic? Don't scream about how right you are, prove it! Would you be willing to stand there and have someone infected cough on you so you can prove your point 100% in how useless masks are because if the answer is no, then welcome to reality. If the answer is yes, then at this point in your delusion, you might as well go outside during a rainstorm with no umbrella and try to convince us all that you are somehow going to be the only one not to get wet. Hint: it's not going to work. No one has ever said masks are the cure for Corona virus or that masks stop all and every bit of transmission but what they are there to do is to help prevent the spread of the virus which is 100% better than nothing.

8. Trump's Covid advice is unfounded and dangerous

Where are the results of Trump's miraculous plans to fix our economy---his main focus, forget human lives, oh but also maybe lastly to cure the virus. You, myself, anyone can say we're winning the wareon Corona but none of the numbers are backing him up. Where is this magical place in the US where people have explicitly followed his bleach cures, or his no mask wearing preachings, or who have a vaccine lickity split. What medical or scientific knowledge does he actually possess in order to accurately give health advice? Has he studied this? Has he even listened to his own health advisors? Is he sending his own son back to a public school with other children who potentially can get him sick in the Fall while he demands yours go back regardless of the risk in your area? Why is the country not cured from listening to his sage advice?!?

    Good points, but some are… lacking. Here are some points to also consider:
    • Actually, medical-masks provide some defense, but (even then), it's not substantially. And cloth-masks can actually RAISE your chances of infection! Don't take my word for it. Read it from the peer-reviewed medical journals:
    “Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures”
    May 2020
    Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.
    — Abstract, sentence 4
    None of the household studies reported a significant reduction in secondary laboratory-confirmed influenza virus infections in the face mask group (11–13,15,17,34,35). Most studies were underpowered because of limited sample size, and some studies also reported suboptimal adherence in the face mask group.
    — Methods and Results, Personal Protective Measures, Face Masks, ¶1, sentences 7-8
    https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/26/5/19-0994_article
    “Cloth masks: Dangerous to your health?”
    22 April 2015
    This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection.
    — Conclusions, sentences 1-3
    https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/04/150422121724.htm
    “Face masks to prevent transmission of influenza virus: a systematic review”
    22 January 2010
    There is some evidence to support the wearing of masks or respirators during illness to protect others, and public health emphasis on mask wearing during illness may help to reduce influenza virus transmission. There are fewer data to support the use of masks or respirators to prevent becoming infected.
    — Summary, sentences 4-5
    https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/epidemiology-and-infection/article/face-masks-to-prevent-transmission-of-influenza-virus-a-systematic-review/64D368496EBDE0AFCC6639CCC9D8BC05
    • And quarantining may have worked with other diseases, but apparently not COVID-19. In fact, coronavirus-infection is actually MORE LIKELY at home!
    https://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2020/07/21/world/asia/21reuters-health-coronavirus-southkorea.html
    https://abcnews.go.com/Health/risks-coronavirus/story?id=70624608
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8293417/66-New-York-coronavirus-hospitalizations-people-staying-HOME.html
    https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/shocking-66percent-of-new-coronavirus-patients-in-ny-stayed-home-cuomo/ar-BB13HKJO?li=AAggFp4
    The well-ventilated environment of the outdoors is actually far more advisable than the confinements of indoors, where any COVID that does find its way inside is trapped inside with the unsuspecting quarantiners.
    • And aside from the concerns shared by @Not_Average, remember that indoor-crimes (ex. rape & domestic-abuse) also exist and are boosted when the victims are confined with their perpetrators. And this is happening ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE:
    https://www.un.org/en/coronavirus/un-supporting-%E2%80%98trapped%E2%80%99-domestic-violence-victims-during-covid-19-pandemic
    https://www.voanews.com/episode/nigeria-sees-spike-rape-cases-sexual-violence-during-pandemic-4327176

    So, the prescription (of a global-lockdowns & mass mask-mandates) is not without side-effects. And it's not 100% effective either. (In fact, it may even make things worse.) Yes, there are the ignorant who sadly believe that the virus does not exist, but blind obedience to the error-prone fellow-humans is a mistake as well. (If they make 1 mistake, ALL who follow them suffer.) All of us must take individual responsibility for our own well-being, should research the relevant topics, and should make our own decisions based on our own living-conditions & health-situations.

      This seems like you just randomly picked a set of links as a lot have nothing to do with what was said here. I also don't understand the point of you posting all of this when what was said in regards to masks is masks can help the spread of infection but they aren't perfect (Literally nothing is---hello condoms?). If the point is to say well they don't work all the time therefore NO ONE should wear them, then be my guest and volunteer to stand there without a mask or because condoms don't work all the time either, go condomless as someone infected coughs or has sex with you. Do you think that's the better solution here than having even SOME protection? If masks prevent even 5% of infections, why would that not be worth it if those 5% equal human lives?

    • Ima listen to a real scientist instead of you, specifically, Bill Nye. As he eloquently put it, the mask isn't supposed to protect you, it's supposed to protect me from you, and you from me. To put this another way, the mask doesn't prevent you from catching it, it prevents you from spreading it.
      www.mayoclinic.org/.../art-20485449
      Please read that link.

      The idea that quarantining doesn't work with covid is ridiculous, even the links you gave mentioned that it was talking about transmission between family members, which we've known about for a long time, which is why here in Canada they actually suggested that we have 1 person go out to do shopping and then they socially distance themselves from the rest of the family when possible. There are ways around this effect, but regardless quarantining isn't the problem here, living in the same house is the problem. Quarantine or no quarantine, if 1 person in the house gets covid then everyone in the house will get covid, because it's just that infectious.

      No one said it was without side effects, obviously we don't want people being abused, but the downside of not quarantining is millions of people getting sick, just look at the USA. Don't be blindly obedient, but it isn't even like they're asking very much of us, no one asked you to jump off a bridge for covid, we are just trying to find the best method to slow the infection, it's possible there might be a better method but we don't currently know about it. Waiting for us to find that better method that might not exist, instead of doing what we can right now, is the same as doing nothing.

      Let's be real, almost nobody will research it, we should be responsible for ourselves, sure, but answer me this; when was the last time you read an end-user license agreement? Aka that thing they force you to read/accept before you join most websites/apps.

      @myTake Owner「This seems like you just randomly picked a set of links as a lot have nothing to do with what was said here.」
      Huh? Which points are 'just randomly picked' here? My links are related to my points: On the less-than-perfect protection of masks, the links provided are peer-reviewed studies on the effectiveness of personal protective equipment. The links on COVID-infections being more likely while confined at home are on my points about home-confinements raising the possibility of coronavirus-infection. Likewise, the links on the spike of rape & domestic abuse are with my point of the home-quarantines raising the instances of home-based crime. So, none of these were randomly-selected. They were all selected to support my point.

      Refuting "7. Masks are not completely useless" (the point of half my writing here), CLOTH-MASKS are worse than useless (even raising the chances of infection), while medical-grade masks are worth wearing. But even then, it's not as effective as some may think.

  • I appreciate your post.

    Working in health care you come to see and realise that even some of them don't care.

    They are too superior to be told you need to wash your hands or sanitise after removing it putting on gloves.

    They've been told not to use the air con. But because we are hot they want you to 'bend' the rules.

    I've had a doctor lie to me and use information he heard from other staff to convince me he was telling the truth on a subject.

    This world is corrupt. And they are not by any means going to change. The human race is too better, too knowledgeable, too invincible to be able to believe this virus is as deadly as it seems.

    What we have is a God complex among the masses!

    I'm sorry, but I find this world incredibly tiring.

      And the things is, it's always been this way. We didn't suddenly grow this level of ignorance out of nowhere---it's always been a part of our world---I've witnessed it with hurricanes in my area---tell people they are in low lying areas that water will rise 20 feet and drown them, they think they somehow know better than anyone who has ever studied storms, the area, or is simply trying to save their lives, and they die for literally no reason! People don't want to be told what to do by anyone because we are so pressed to make our own way all the time with everything, but that doesn't work when you're talking about a virus that spreads from person to person because it simply does not care who you are, what rights you think you have, or how invisible you think you are. It must be extremely frustrating to be where you are and know how bad it can get and have people ignore protocols. Please keep fighting the good fight. You can't save them all, but maybe you can get through to a few.

    1. Clearly it can, considering that Trump is being blamed for the deaths when it was idiots like Cuomo, Wolf, Murphy, and Whitmer who sent Covid-19 positive patients back into nursing homes, resulting in tens of thousands of early deaths for the elderly.
    2. True, but as they keep changing it and contradicting themselves and others (Fauci's don't wear a mask then yes, wear one) makes it difficult to know whom to trust.
    3. Cuomo is running a victory lap after his poor decisions exploded the number of deaths in NY, so at least someone disagrees.
    4. Nor is a collapsed economy, forcing businesses into bankruptcy, incurring huge debt, and keeping people who need serious procedures out of hospitals
    5. True. Riot and "protests" contributed greatly, which is why Leftist states ordered contact tracers to not ask if the infected had gone to any of the "protests."
    6. No virus does. That is not the problem. The problem is that the governors and mayors don't either, which is why they issue such arbitrary and idiot, and often - looking at you Andy Beshear - Illegal rules. They were elected to administrate, not dictate.
    7. Not completely useless, but they also give people a false sense of security even though most of the masks they wear have a message on the side of the box that explicitly says "Does not protect against viruses, including Coronavirus."
    8. Yawn. Even Leftwing Politifact debunk the false "inject bleach" story

      Even if all that were true, shouldn’t we still wear masks in public? And take the vaccine when it’s available?

  • Not_Average
    I mean I think there’s something to say when the CDC has been caught falsifying information. Now they are forced to report stats to the HHC. While I agree with the premise of what you’re saying, I urge you to keep your mind open. Is there a possibility that the democrats are over-hyping the virus in an attempt to defame the current president during election season? I think that’s a strong possibility.


    Something else to consider is that millions of Americans are losing their jobs and business owners are being forced to shut-down and therefore collapse.


    My barbershop owner is a first generation American from Vietnam. She came here and started four different shops, and has achieved wealth and the American Dream coming from nothing. She is now bankrupt, and has lost everything. Her son had to drop out of university because she could no longer pay for the outrageous tuition costs. My gym owner has a similar story.


    So while I appreciate your selflessness, let’s also consider all Americans. I personally don’t think businesses should be forced to shut-down as government mandate. I believe that Americans should be able to govern themselves to a certain extent.


    They’ll shut down millions of businesses, but they will allow everyone to “protest”? Why is it that particular amendments that benefit one particular political party are allowed when that amendment causes the same, if not more damage towards our efforts with Covid-19?


    Also, you should consider that this virus is new, and we really know little about it. For that reason, there are studies that conflict with your statements, and it’s our right as Americans to choose and act on what we believe.


    The shutdown simply didn’t work. If there were a vaccine being released in two months- then sure, let’s shut down for two months. But this virus isn’t going anywhere. The same thing will happen as soon as we open up again. “Overwhelmed” hospitals are not as common as you’d think if you dig a little deeper into your research.


    I personally believe that people should be strongly encouraged to wear masks, and private business owners should have the right to mandate them- not the government.


    I believe that business owners have the right to operate as it’s their discretion and the public’s discretion if they choose to participate within their business.


    I also believe that if you’re “at-risk”, then it’s not an obligation of everyone else to stop their life due to your medical misfortune. If someone walks in to a restaurant with a peanut allergy, does it make sense to shut down the entire restaurant? It’s a bad analogy, but it gets my point across.


    I’d encourage people to do their own research and not drink the Kool-aid so to speak.
    • Something else to consider- if our economy fails, there will be more deaths than what Covid-19 has caused. Historically, this has been proven to be true if you look at at the numbers.

      Imagine if you lose your job, end up on the street, and cannot practice hygiene during this pandemic? That would be catastrophic.

    • "Keep your mind open" says someone whose mind is obviously closed. :)

    • Just because I’ve established my stance on a particular subject- doesn’t mean my mind is closed off. I’ve looked at both sides, have done my research, and then I decided on where I stand. If you’d like to offer constructive value as to why you disagree with me- I’d love to hear it. Maybe I can learn more.

    I wanted to write something like this but I figured I didn't have the time or energy to argue against conspiracy theorists.

    Here are the relevant research articles, links for the people who still try to spread misinformation and want to make things harder for the rest of us (the situation in the US is a pretty clear example of what conspiracy theories/science denial propaganda do to your country during a pandemic)

    About the mask

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7191114/
    "Cloth masks are a simple, economic and sustainable alternative to surgical masks as a means of source control of SARS-CoV-2 in the general community "

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-020-0843-2
    "Surgical face masks significantly reduced detection of influenza virus RNA in respiratory droplets and coronavirus RNA in aerosols"

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7367512/
    "Face coverings... function primarily in source control; capturing droplets expelled by an infected individual."

    (Droplet spread is widely considered to be the main mode of transmission of SARS-CoV-2: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32171952/)

    About the lockdown

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2405-7
    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2405-7_reference.pdf

    last table:
    Observed: 128,928 deaths
    Estimated deaths (with intervention) 130,000 deaths
    Estimated deaths (without intervention): 3,200,000 deaths

    "Our results show that major non-pharmaceutical interventions—and lockdowns in particular—have had a large effect on reducing transmission."

    About economy recovery and non-pharmaceutical interventions (such as lockdown, social distancing etc)

    https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3561560

    "While the pandemic itself was associated with economic disruptions in the short run, we find these disruptions were similar across cities with strict and lenient NPIs. In the medium run, we find suggestive evidence that, if anything, NPIs are associated with better economic outcomes. Our findings indicate that NPIs can reduce disease transmission without necessarily further depressing economic activity."

    Yes, the people who are fighting against NPIs are the ones making your country's economy worse in longer time scale.

      So pack kids in classrooms, despite the fact they’re vulnerable? It’s worth it?

    • @OddBeMe I don't believe in a no-win scenario. There's ways to make it happen, like rolling off days coupled hybrid learning, and utilizing school libraries and gymnasiums as classrooms. So there's no need to "pack" kids anywhere. That's an excuse to live in fear and defeatist attitude.

    • OddBeMe

      Seeing how kids are unruly in normal times, I highly doubt they’ll follow Covid guidelines to the letter. So some kids will get sick and some will die. I’m not defeatist, I’m a realist. And I don’t trade a kid’s life to make Trump look better.

    So tired of hearing the conspiracy theorists; it is a VIRUS. It doesn't care who you are or how you believe. It doesn't care about anything, including it's own existence. It is a complex group of proteins that just keeps replicating itself in compliant host systems until it can no longer do so. It doesn't care if you live or die.

    These positive tests are bad because many are inaccurate and they lower the mortality rate if more and more “positives” are being tallied which turns people to the “just the flu” crowd. Many young people have died of strokes or other blood clotting disorders with this virus and being able to breathe is pretty important. I have some n95 masks I wear when indoors with other people, call me paranoid but I like being able to fill my lungs with air not liquid.

    9. Making masks mandatory is unconstitutional. Americans with disability acts some people can’t be forced if they have underlying health conditions. Walmart and target had to quit their mandatory mask idea because they received many phone calls from customers and calls from their corporate lawyers pointing out the absurdity.

      I'm not sure about this where you live, but all the "Mandatory to wear masks signs" in our area include an underlying statement that this is not required for young children, or those with health or mental issues...but those are not the people that are "taking on the system." The ones getting pissy and causing a fit are not those people at all. I've witnessed at least 3 times where managers have had to deal with people screaming about rights, but clearly 3 people are not the only people with rights to want to live and protect their own families.

      It’s about controlling people with fear, scare tactics, and the idea of potentially hurting other people if they don’t wear a mask. People shouldn’t be giving dr fauci a death threat. But he should lose his medical license and high paying cushioned job. Governors like Andrew Cuomo should receive a second degree murder charge for the 32,000 elderly that were knowingly killed in NYC. The medical ship comfort was ready to go along with field hospitals that remained empty, ready to go with the necessary equipment and medications. Hopefully things will get back to normal after November 4th.

      Americans just like to complain, if you physically cannot wear a mask, don't go out unless absolutely necessary. My friend has severe asthma and wears a face mask for 6-7 hours a day with no complaints.
