Alone and safe
viewing the outside
within the walls
of my isolation.

Once again
comes the man,
who shakes and rattles
my home.

When the dust settles,
I again feel safe.
But, the walls are opened,
and I am cajoled to leave,
and I am afraid.
of those who are not.

Interesting. Who is the man? My prediction is complicated. In the short term a rebound or increases as we relax. In the medium term some drugs that help the more severe cases but are not a cure. People will then be compelled further into making risky decisions. In the long term either a vaccine or herd immunity after immense suffering. Bleak really.

The man? He, whose name must not be spoken.

The flu comes every year, millions get their flu shot every year, and thousands die every year from the flu. It will be the same for the Corona Virus.

It won't necessarily be the same though. Firstly this is deadlier but we don't know the real rate because we are under testing. It looks like an average rate of something like 3% or so but this hides the fact that it's quite a bit higher by age. Secondly we may not get a vaccine. I mean I think we will because of all the resources around the world being thrown at it but this doesn't mean we will... Vaccine development doesn't always succeed. So we may not get a vaccine or it could be years away not months so I think we arenot looking this problem for square in the eye.

Really not surprising that he would approve of something that makes little sense..... :LOL:
Are you saying Bob's thread makes little sense?

Not a pre-requisite.

This whole thread is in The Twilight Zone.:alien:

I still think it's Jack...

i liked it. i mean not bad stuff. and that has nothing to do with content as i interpreted it somewhat differently. i mean i think that's a strength because you can take it various ways. maybe you should lay some more on us or start a web site and publish your missives there.

I completely agree with you.
But, as far as this thread is concerned just let us take our flights of fantasy where they lead... 🤣
