It’s true that youthful people without underlying conditions are unlikely to be made terribly sick, but they can be and not everyone in a workplace is youthful or necessarily free of underlying conditions. Vaccinated people can become infected and transmit the infection partly because of the delta variant, but even ex-President Donald Trump has unleashed boos at a rally when he cheered for vaccinations.
Trump is sometimes said to have killed everyone who died under his watch, a grotesque stupidity, especially considering his Warp Speed program. It sufficiently undid bureaucratic entanglement to produce vaccines at a record rate, thus saving vast numbers of lives.
Even with those vaccines, many have died under Biden’s watch, but presidents are just one factor among many in dealing with COVID-19. Biden is learning as much because of federal courts putting at least a temporary stop to his mandates. An encouragement of the moment is how those who have natural immunity through prior infection are doing well in escaping serious infection, a contribution of nature.
Despite omicron, new virus surges and a host of economic worries, much is returning to normal. It is pretty easy these days to find toilet paper. Histories may fail to observe that as they nevertheless correct a host of misunderstandings.
