what's the trend?

In the US, it's bad, though in last 2 weeks the cases/deaths are going down.... Still, 25+ million infected and 420,000 dead. To those who still think it's a hoax: Yeah, you're so smart! You figured it out that the gov is paying actors to fill hospitals to capacity, and record fake deaths. Maybe evolution is a made-up theory too, because... how is it so many stupid people have survived? right?

So, once upon a time, and for 99% of the humanity's experience, there were many diseases that would maim and kill, from little children to grown adults. Those natural afflictions were equal-opportunity enemies of health. Rich & powerful people would have their children die too. FD Roosevelt got polio in his 30s and was an invalid for the rest of his life.

Then we were given a choice by modern medicine: vaccines. What we found out is that vaccines, and modern medicine, have vastly improved human health, longevity, and happiness. Life span alone (on the average) doubled within 100 years.

On the other hand, you can choose conspiracy theories, misinformation, and wilful ignorance..... which is pretty much how most people lived their lives for ever. But, they took risks, and sometimes were rewarded for taking a chance. Or, when they figured out that every action, every tool, every food, etc, had some risk but they weighed that against benefit. 

Today, we still take calculated risks, but some of us don't understand ..statistics. Like the chance of dying in an automobile crash is much higher than getting the COVID19 vaccine, while the effects of the virus are much more likely to be harmful. Yet....

 

By the way, even though it's effective, I think it's disgusting that we have to bribe people into doing the right thing for themselves and for the community.
