Once Again I Ask Why We Are Requiring Vaccinations?

I’m vaccinated. I don’t regret it. I also think that most people who are not getting the vaccination are being stubbornly foolish.

However, when I read things like this, I think that applies even more to those trying to enforce vaccination mandates.

We can treat this now. It’s not a horrible pandemic to be frightened about. It’s just another respiratory virus.

Pharma company Pfizer announced on Friday that its experimental, antiviral COVID-19 treatment pill Paxlovid showed during testing that it's almost 90% effective in preventing hospitalization and death in high-risk patients.

The company said when combined with a low dose of ritonavir and taken within five days of the onset of symptoms, it cut severe illness and death attributed to the coronavirus by 89%.

"Today's news is a real game-changer in the global efforts to halt the devastation of this pandemic," Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said in a statement.

"These data suggest that our oral antiviral candidate if approved or authorized by regulatory authorities has the potential to save patients' lives, reduce the severity of COVID-19 infections, and eliminate up to 9 out of 10 hospitalizations."

Well, let’s go for it. Start treating this thing. Let people go back to work and back out to enjoy their lives. Stop scaring people into living in hiding behind masks.
