Best Commentary I’ve Heard on Virus Management

 

I don’t have medical credentials, but some of what ZDoggMD says about mandates being “paternalistic” and about how our messaging could have been more along the lines of “here’s how you protect yourself” in a context of freedom aligns with what I have been thinking.

He says that instead of elected officials making rules about staying inside, people should have been encouraged to go to the beach, go hiking, do healthy things where there’s plenty of air circulation. We didn’t have to be in the mess we’re in now.

He makes reassuring points about the vaccines being effective and that we should be able to freely mingle now, in spite of the protests from the media about the variants.

For a breath of fresh air, watch this:

    Outstanding.  He’s also a very engaging speaker.

    I think it was Ben Shapiro who pointed out that graphs of mask-wearing compliance started to go up when COVID cases in an area started to rise. People aren’t stupid.

    No, they aren’t.  If I have to hear one more time that people in Florida aren’t wearing masks, I’ll scream.  Many are.  Their choice.

    But masks are not to protect the wearer.  They were sold as a way to protect others from some mythological symtom-free (healthy) spreaders.

    This all goes to Dr. “Death” Fauci being a complete fraud and doing more harm that good at the behest of Big Pharma.  This was made possible by Trump being a dunce and Corporate Media being complicit in the deception.  The Media lied and people died.

    This was absolutely on the spot.  

    One thing he didn’t mention was the politicization of the entire pandemic by both sides.  Thanks to reasonable conversations about the entire event are nearly impossible.

     

    But over otherwise, dead on.   Those of us in medicine are really ready for this to  be over.

    Really? So you still cannot understand the concept of  people being presymptomatic and being infectious?  Because that’s exactly how most respiratory viruses spread.

    Wow. This guy is fantastic.

    When my son was born 34 years ago, there was a very bad viral pneumonia on the loose on Cape Cod. My pediatrician had me keep my son away from people for six months. No closed-air spaces like the mall or retail stores or schools. No family gatherings or gatherings with friends. Outside for a walk every day? Absolutely, yes.

    What Dr. Damania is saying in this video has been standard successful advice for at least three decades. :-)

    And I agree with him completely about how poor the communication from the government officials has been over the past year.

    He’s generally pretty middle of the road and reasonable about things.  Good person to listen to.
