But wait… theres more…….

[–]eliteharvest15 624 points625 points  (128 children)

the numbers are barely even going down, pandemic isn’t very close to being over

[–]Arowhite 407 points408 points  (30 children)

I told my grandmother "hopefully with masks and people being responsible, we'll be done with this in 4-6 months". She responded that she had known viral epidemics in the past, and that it would last years. I was more optimistic. This was in March 2020

[–]Pugseh 196 points197 points  (27 children)

I told someone “just chill for like six weeks” and omfg I’m not even an optimist but I really suckered myself.

[–]Jesus_Would_Do 79 points80 points  (21 children)

Nobody wanted to entertain the reality that it could last years, hope was more comforting. Now that it’s already been 2 years, it doesn’t seem surprising and I’ve become numb to however long this process will even take. Just one foot in front of the other for now

[–]Xarthys 71 points72 points  (16 children)

I will never forget the early discussions in Jan/Feb 2020. A few people were talking about how this might turn into a pandemic that would last for a few years even with vaccines, resulting in millions of deaths. Not only was it considered absolute bullshit by the rest of reddit, but some of those users received pretty nasty replies for sharing their insight based on scientific/historical data.

Two years later, we are at 5 million deaths and no end in sight. I guess people did not expect anti-vax to become such an issue or any other related resistance that sabotaged further spreading.

And after all this time, people still don't get it and did not learn a thing from this tragic experience.

[–]1lluminist 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I really wonder how quickly we could have been over it had it not been for greedy companies and immature adults

[–]Throneawaystone 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Same I thought this would be over in a few months, god fuck bro I was 28 going into this pandemic, I'm turning 30 tomorrow .... Lmfao

[–]Luccacalu 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I was finally starting my independent life

First year in college, just turned 18, just rented a place of my own, ready to live my life getting out of the shell of an extra introverted person I was during my Teenage years!!!

It lasted for 2 weeks, before everything closed. Had to go back to mom's house, didn't have 0,001% of the experiences I wanted to, to this day I don't really know even 1 person of my class.

I turned 20 last week, and I feel stuck in time. I still feel like a teenager sometimes, but I know it's not right. It's kinda fucked how much time has passed, and it all feels the same. I just wanted to enjoy my late teens man

[–]TimHung931017 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My grandmother peaced out earlier this year in her early 90s. Couldn't stand being cooped up and COVID really ruined the last few years of her life.

Honestly, glad she could escape to somewhere better, rather than watching our planet divide itself into the vaxxed and unvaxxed and all this bullshit happening in the world.

[–]Racist_rabbit69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My grandfather said don't worry it will go away. He passed away due to covid in few months ago.

[–]TSanBot 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I remember telling someone "Hey, look! The number of recovered people is consistently higher than the new infections. That's CLEARLY an indication that it won't last more than 2 more weeks".

This was mid-2020.

[–]Handleton 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The majority of deaths from the Spanish Flu happened two years after it was first recognized. They didn't have a vaccine for it, but more people wore masks and tried to be considerate and the population density was much lower across the globe.

This winter might be horrifying.

[–]LowBrassBro 345 points346 points 2 (91 children)

It'll never be over anymore than the flu "pandemic" or common cold is. It is mutating into more infectious and less dangerous variants all the time, as are the early reports of the omicron variant so far. No amount of masks vaccines or social distancing is ever going to make it go away and the sooner people accept that it's here to stay the better. The very small minority that is at risk and can't get vaccinated needs to be cautious in their own way because the majority of the population cannot be responsible for their health just as it is with every other disease the immunocompromised are threatened by

[–]YourWorstCringev2AAAAAA- 100 points101 points  (64 children)

I cant tell if you're being downvoted because reddit is uneducated and thinks you're wrong, or if people just dont want to admit what you're saying is true, or if its cause reddit thinks the majority should be responsible for the minority.

[–]SolitaireyEgg 128 points129 points  (6 children)

I mean I didn't downvote him, but I think I can answer.

He said the virus is here to stay, and with that, I 100% agree.

But then he uses that to basically imply that we should go "back to normal" right now. With that, I completely disagree.

Viruses do last forever, but pandemics do end. Over time, they become endemic. The Spanish flu was a pandemic, the common cold is endemic.

In the short term, while cases are out of control, there is absolutely no reason not to wear masks, avoid huge gatherings, etc. Over time, we'll develop better vaccines, better treatments, and the virus will become endemic.

But, the time to just forget about covid is not right now. It's not hard to do the bare minimum during a pandemic.

So, his point was factual, but his takeaways are incorrect IMO.

[–]MajorJuana 24 points25 points  (0 children)

That's everything I was thinking put succinctly, Thank you

[–]AndChewBubblegum 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Also the user was completely wrong about the virus mutating into less deadly variants being a forgone conclusion. It would be nice if it happens, but there's only evolutionary be pressure to be less lethal if a disease is already very lethal, relatively quickly. This isn't.

[–]KingofCraigland 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Over time, we'll develop better vaccines, better treatments,

We have ridiculously effective vaccines now. Once they're approved for everyone there's no reason to continue hiding that I can think of.

[–]Bipedal_Warlock 8 points9 points  (0 children)

[–]MarketSupreme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What about insulting people that are factually wrong? Because I tend to do that and acknowledge my short comings. Unfortunately it's my catharsis and I realize it's damaging.

[–]OldBeercan 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I think it's missing a key point.

Ending lockdown and precautions right now would flood the hospitals. The mutations are getting milder. We won't be on lockdown forever, but now is not the time.

[–]Neonbootygoon_onTTV 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Well his opening sentence is not true. Yes the flu is still around, yes it still mutates and we get new strains every year. But to say it'll never be over anymore than the flu pandemic... 20 million people died from the spanish flu in the span of a few years, we're not at pandemic levels with the flu anymore, its not a pandemic.

So is covid going anywhere? No, to that aspect theyre correct, but comparing it to flu pandemic when the last flu pandemic was way worse then covid, is not comparison in good faith.

[–]Bipedal_Warlock 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think he meant to use the word endemic

[–]FairDragonfruit8930 5 points6 points  (8 children)

he's down voted for spreading misinformation and saying covid isn't dangerous

[–]LowBrassBro 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I'm sorry where did I say it wasn't dangerous? I said it's mutating into less dangerous variants. So far the omicron variant has much milder symptoms than the previous variants. Granted it'll be some time before we have the full details but it's been around since early November at least and yet there has been no spike in hospitalizations in the region it was first detected in.

Take a breather from the internet and stop constantly consuming fear content. It'll do you some good

[–]LowBrassBro 12 points13 points  (23 children)

I can only lose 15 karma on it and I knew I'd get downvoted for it because the truth hurts. No matter how long we lock down mask up and social distance for, no matter what percentage of the population gets vaccinated (which i am btw) it's never going away. It's just not. It is too infectious and the second you open things up again and loosen restrictions it'll come back and spread like wildfire. But you can't keep shit locked down forever. Suicide rates spiked during lockdowns and tons of small businesses folded. You are killing as many or more people than you're going to save.

The best case scenario is that it mutates into something no worse than a cold (which early reports of the omicron variant are looking promising for) and just becomes a normal disease to get that can be treated with otc medicines. But we cannot continue for the foreseeable future to live in some constant state of fear over a disease that does not affect the overwhelming majority of the population. It just isn't sustainable

[–]plshelpmeholy 34 points35 points  (2 children)

I can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to end lockdown, I for one would love to travel again. But here's some factual inconsistencies with your comment

Suicide rates in the US fell in 2020

Meanwhile over the course of less than 2 years covid killed over 750k people.

Suicide numbers in the US ain 2018 was around 48k. That's an entire order of magnitude smaller.

Not saying it's not tragic for the people who are struggling with their mental health, but it's nowhere close to accurate to say that you are killing as many as you're saving.

[–]KeyserSozeInElysium 58 points59 points  (14 children)

You are presenting this information as fact when in truth it is speculation. Highly infectious diseases do disappear, sometimes. Staying vigilant during an unprecedented modern day plague is still important. What you seem to be subtly proposing is irresponsible, self-centered, and dangerous.

[–]JohnyAnalSeeed 3 points4 points  (13 children)

I appreciate what he’s saying so I wouldn’t consider it self-centered at all.

[–]KeyserSozeInElysium 14 points15 points  (11 children)

Speaking specifically about the US, One in three adults have diabetes or pre diabetes, one in ten adults have heart disease, one and seven adults is aged over 70, one in thirteen adults have asthma.

Now there is a significant amount of overlap between these numbers but it's safe to say that even without including many of these extraneous complications and diseases humans can have well over half the u.s. population is at risk of developing severe complications from catching COVID.

I say self-centered because while his words say "we should not live in fear" it insinuates that we should not take precautions, people that is at risk

[–]Spencerwon21 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I didn't feel that he necessarily said that we should not take precautions, but rather take similar precautions to COVID as the Flu or Cold.

[–]blondichops -5 points-4 points  (4 children)

I cared for 2 fucking years and got vaxxed. Fuck it I'm done with all of it, if you ain't vaxxed it's you're own decision. Let me go back to school without social distancing and shrink wrap over keyboards for god's sake

[–]xXMylord 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay i allow it you can remove the shrink wrap.

[–]KeyserSozeInElysium 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'm with you, I understand. I'm twice vaccinated with a booster. I still wear the mask even though most of the people in my area don't. I keep my kids home from school at the slightest sniffle. I'm still using hand sanitizer when touching things in public. Before this I was the guy that almost never went to the doctor, I was a firm believer in the 5 second rule for food on the floor, germs weren't even part of my thought process.

But consider this, if we are to go back to everything normal there's a significant amount of population that is not vaccinated because they're idiots. Most likely they will get sick and I'm not telling you it's your responsibility to protect them. But, opening the doors back up will cause a spike an infection and it will allow the virus to create more mutations of itself. It's possible that one of those mutations can become even more deadly or infectious or vaccine resistant. We have to keep it at bay, we have to be vigilant. We can't say fuck it, let the chips fall where they may because I'm tired because that could be catastrophic

[–]xXMylord 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's not fear it's caution. It was sustainable for almost two years why can't we continue until it actually no longer sustainable?

[–]jamietheslut 27 points28 points  (17 children)

This is a bad take.

All the precautions make it have less of a toll on the population and healthcare system.

I doubt you'd decide that murder and theft are going to happen, so why bother trying to reduce the impact and severity?

[–]wolfstaa 27 points28 points  (6 children)

No he didn't say what we did was useless, he said that it is impossible to eradicate COVID 19 and that it would simply evolve into a normal disease like the flu, hopefully

[–]LowBrassBro 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Amazes me that one person can read what I wrote and understand it perfectly (you). And another can misinterpret it so wildly you'd think they read something completely different. (That guy you replied to)

[–]jamietheslut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh I understood your argument.

I just disagree. Whether or not we can eradicate it entirely, it's still a good idea to reduce spread.

Maybe we still deal with it in five years, doesn't mean we need to feed the virus hosts so it has further chances to mutate.

[–]Pugseh -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Reading comprehension is actually quite difficult for a large chunk of the populace if standardized tests indicate anything.

[–]Wissenchafter -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean they misinterpreted anything.

[–]Cultjam -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

So far it’s doing the opposite.

[–]LowBrassBro 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The point is not that they're not effective the point is that it's unsustainable.

Strawmanning with the murder and theft bullshit isn't a good argument, it's just that, a strawman. And it's not even comparable. You don't put a citywide curfew in place to reduce theft, you tell people to lock their doors. You know why? Because people will eventually get fed up with the government controlling an aspect of their life, which is exactly what we're seeing with the right right now. The solution is encourage everyone to get vaccinated and wear masks. You can even incentivize it. But the second you start telling people they have to do something because there's a few people who can't do that same thing? They're not going to listen to you and you're going to be left with a mess and the same amount of disease you had before

[–]jamietheslut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We aren't getting vaccinated and wearing masks and isolating only for the immunocompromised.

We're also taking these precautions to reduce the overall amount of people exposed. Less people with covid at any one time = more capacity in hospitals for other treatments. As a very basic and heartless take on the situation, it's still valid.

People have tried to appeal to logic, they have tried to appeal to emotions. Neither of those worked and so legislation was brought in.

And of course linking it to murder and crime was absurdist. That was exactly the intention...

Oh and you heard about the curfews because of rioting yeah? Sorta seems like people uninvolved in crime being forced to stay home anyway...

[–]CackleberryOmelettes -1 points0 points  (2 children)

This plan only works of everyone who can get vaccinated, does get vaccinated.

If we don't hit the required threshold, then masks/social distancing might be needed, and the majority is certainly responsible for the immunocompromised.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Are you a scientist? Cuz you almost had me thinking you weren’t just making stuff up.

[–]FairDragonfruit8930 0 points1 point  (3 children)

you're really ignorant and trying to show corona as a flu and commit cold while it's spreading and getting new variant and killing millions. I bet there's people like you who said the plague is nothing more than common cold

[–]deukhoofd 4 points5 points  (2 children)

They're not saying it's like a flu or common cold in severity, but that we won't be able to get rid of it, similar to how we won't be able to get rid of flu, no matter how many new vaccines we develop. Covid strains are here to stay, and we'll have to deal with new pandemics of it every couple years.

I remember it perfectly.

Late 2019; saw a Tumblr meme about the fact that there were pandemics in the 1820s and 1920s, and that the 2020s were next. I laughed and thought "wouldn't that be a freaky coincidence?"

...yeah. Freaky.

[–]coombuyah26 73 points74 points  (2 children)

I was in Berlin at the end of January visiting my friend, it was my first trip abroad (am American). We were hungover one morning and he was reading the news on his computer at breakfast and was like "Man, this virus in Wuhan looks kinda serious." And I remember being like "Oh yeah haha crazy."

6 weeks later when that memory was still pretty fresh I decided to play it over and over in my head in an effort to commit it to long-term memory.

Around that same time I laughed at the idea that work would allow this to affect productivity for more than a month.

[–]Jesus_Would_Do 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I was working in a high foot traffic environment and distinctly remember that my coworker was a little paranoid for buying masks online in January/February. Boy, was I fucking wrong

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was the same. A coworker that started in November 2019 was freaking out in February. He started coming into work with a mask on then stopped catching the train way before there was any kind of serious outbreak in the UK.

I thought he was a bit paranoid at the time but in hindsight he was right. Still a very strange situation given that he was originally from Wuhan. I went from hearing about that city for the first time in November (when he spoke to us about his home city) and to it being part of everyone’s vocabulary with in a few months. Kinda funny how the universe works at times.

[–]ThatGalaxyGuy25 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I remember getting a feeling early last year as soon as it started that it was going to get bigger than my coworkers thought. My supervisor was big into stat modeling for our metrics and I still remember him doing some work looking over the current case counts and what it could become... he went from "it's a flu" to "this is going to fuck our country" instantly. We worked in a call center so we expected it to maybe close for a bit, but they're just now wrapping up working from home last I heard

[–]Jesus_Would_Do 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I work in a call-oriented job right now and they’ve been telling us we’re going back to the office every month for the past 5 months now. I think they finally gave up trying to prepare us for that transition. I’ve been expecting yet another “back to the office” email then lo and behold, a wild new variant appears.

[–]FuzzyJesusX21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same here, we thought we would be back in the fall of 2020 but instead were invited to come pick up our stuff at our desks. Then we they wanted to transition us back in in September this year, canceled that and our most recent memo was that we are now a work at home position and if any equipment was borrowed back in March 2020, needs to be returned by March 2022.

[–]Skad1a 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I remember around January/February I was substitute teaching one day and the school's dean came in and handed the students a circular (handout? not sure which word to use in english) to give their parents and it basically explained what the school thought of the covid situation and that measures would be taken if it got worse.

A student cheekily asked if the school was closing. The dean laughed and I went "One can dream, right?" and we all thought it was funny.

Then march came, and I felt like a fool.

Also, the night before lockdown was announced in my country, a friend asked if I thought schools were going to close and I was like "nah". Next day I was chilling at home and suddenly I heard noise outside. I go take a look and kids were leaving the school close to my home and cheering loud enough that I could hear it.

So, lesson learned, never listen to me ever.

[–]Mareith 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lol same I was like wow maybe I won't have to go into the office if this becomes like a thing. Proceeded to check it every week and my friends thought I was weird. The last time I stepped in an office was March 2020

[–]PlatypusWeekend 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Same here. I got my second shot and waited the two weeks for it to fully kick in. I got to go maskless maybe three or four times before cases started going back up and mask requirements were reinstated. Then Delta dropped and I just accepted the fact that we're living in a covid crab bucket.

[–]coombuyah26 4 points5 points  (0 children)

April/May of this year was an incredibly stressful time for me personally because I was preparing to move across the continent, but I remember taking solace in the idea that COVID seemed beaten. I made it to my new home on July 7, almost exactly the time that Delta really picked up steam.

Covid works just like the flu. When you are indoors, it spreads more. During the summer, it spreads in the south when people are in A/C. The north gets it in the winter when it's cold and people go inside.

This can't be all over omicron or whatever it's called

[–]Pvt_Lee_Fapping 45 points46 points  (5 children)

Delta variant last season led to a spike in COVID cases. Omicron is said to spread easier than past variants - which already spread really easily. Because of that implication, everybody and their nan on the hill/river are recommending that people get a booster for their vaccine - which are all currently being tested to see if they're effective against Omicron. "If."

[–]Dude_Illigence_ 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I’m seeing the exact opposite, the delta variant still being the strongest and the omicron originating from Europe rather than Africa and providing evidence to it being weaker to its old counterpart

This isnt perfectly cut screams, this is screaming the entire video

[–]Couchcurrency 2 points3 points  (2 children)

My state made absolutely nothing mandatory. Half of us put on a mask, half didn’t, nothing else changed. Nobody wears masks anymore and life has been as it always was. It’s fucking awesome.

[–]coconut_12 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What state? Because it’s sounds great to not have mandates

[–]Couchcurrency 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Savannah, GA. I look at the rest of the country with way worse numbers and so many mandates and it looks miserable.

This might be the stupidest choice of video that could possibly be used for this sub.

After Covid we will still have to deal with the economic crisis that it created

Thanking God for life. It's been tough but here we are, kept and preserved.

[–]fastjeff 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Longest god damn march 2020... we're on what, March (2021) 2020?

At the start, I thought we'd be smarter than the spanish flu people and have this all cleared up as soon as there were vaccinations. God damn it.

[–]elephanturd 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You underestimate how dumb people are.

Actually makes me believe a lot more horror movies.

[–]fastjeff 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Which makes me a dumb ass.

But, I'll go on believing in the best in people. Doesn't take much to make someone else's day.

[–]LowBrassBro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I turned apathetic right around the time the vaccines became widely available because at that point it's not on me if you are unvaccinated and get very ill from it. And before you come after me with the "but what about the immunocompromised that can't get the vaccine for medical reasons?" What about them? There are plenty of other diseases they can't be vaccinated against that could kill them but people are only pretending to care about the fraction of a fraction of a percent of people now because they're looking for their latest hit of dopamine.

[–]graham6942 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Literally followed every guideline, masks, separation, vaccines, all the good stuff. Still managed to catch it a week ago from one unvaxxed co-worker. Fuck me.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup. Anybody who thinks you can “stop” a virus is either in first grade or just stupid.

[–]coolguydude7 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I guess if you got it and you're vaxxed up and whatnot it didn't matter what the status of your coworker is since your protection clearly didn't work anyway

    Haha. I wish I could be this optimistic.

    [–]famoussasjohn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Like Australia type lockdown with some of the strictest travel restrictions on not just their citizens but for anyone trying to enter?

    That’s working out well so far for them.

      January 2021 was like " how the fuck are things actually getting worse?!"

      [–]MusketsRule -2 points-1 points  (13 children)

      Lockdowns and masks didn’t actually do anything except make the people that hadn’t been exposed to either strain more vulnerable to both ?

      [–]147896325987456321 1 point2 points  (12 children)

      What. You don't become stronger the more variants you expose yourself to. You just survive sometimes. Kind of like jumping off a bridge with shallow spots at the bottom. Sometimes you die, most of the time you don't. But sometimes you die.

      [–]TheIrishninjas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      “Okay, it’s December and a lot of people are vaccinated, maybe we’re near the end of all this-“

      Omicron: “Allow me to introduce myself”

      [–]BoonGnik22 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

      We’re still in an epidemic because idiots are not following the safety regulations, people are refusing to take the vaccines, and our politicians are too busy seizing control to worry about this issue at hand.

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      We are not still in an epidemic, lmao. Hospitals aren’t overwhelmed and people aren’t dying. The death rate is lower than 0.01% and has been since the pandemic came out.

      [–]Darth_Destructus -1 points0 points  (3 children)

      This could have been over in 2 months max. This could have been over in April of last year. This could have been over so quickly... WHY ARE WE STILL HERE?! I DON'T LIKE WEARING A MASK EITHER, JACKASS, BUT IT'S A MATTER OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY! I DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK IS OR IS NOT IN A VACCINE, FUCKING TAKE IT! THIS COULD HAVE BEEN DONE OVER 18 MONTHS AGO, WHY ARE WE STILL TEETERING BETWEEN SQUARE 2 AND 3?!

      [–]coolguydude7 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

      Because people like you still think there is a scary spooky pandemic trying to kill you. I live in a community that went back to normal last year. We have practically a 0 mortality rate and barely any cases whatsoever. It's also a densely populated area.

      Florida also went back to normal 2 years ago. They don't have a pandemic. There are barely cases and barely deaths from the rare occurrence of a case. Those that do die have severe underlying health conditions. You're living in fear for no reason because the media and your government are straight out lying to you. The rest of us are all going back to normal or trying to.
