Is the fact that we knew what worked to deal with a pandemic and we ignored it.
This paper reviewed what was known about the effectiveness and practical feasibility of a range of actions that might be taken in attempts to lessen the number of cases and deaths resulting from a respiratory virus pandemic. This included a review of proposed biosecurity measures, later utilized for the first time during covid, such as “large scale or home quarantine of people believed to have been exposed, travel restrictions, prohibitions of social gatherings, school closures, maintaining personal distance, and the use of masks”.
Even assuming a case fatality rate (CFR) of 2.5%, roughly equal to the 1918 Spanish flu but far higher than the CFR for covid, Henderson and his colleagues nevertheless concluded that these mitigation measures would do far more harm than good.
Dealing with a virus wasn't new. It wasn't something that we'd never done before. But this country took every bit of knowledge that it had and tossed it out the window. What we got from Fauci and Birx and the rest of the pathetic shitshow at the CDC was political action that ended up killing hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions.
then why did it happen anyway
Can you say "Anything to keep that bastard Trump from pissing in our rice bowls again."?
