“‘We should not succumb’”, Carmel Pine Cone – Jan. 21, 2022
There is no doubt the Wuhan virus (Covid-19) has wreaked havoc worldwide. The cost to the U.S. economy is in the multi-trillions. Deaths, while overstated, possibly to induce fear, are in the hundreds of thousands. Fear, used by our government agencies to impose over-reaching mandates, masking, social distancing, 10-day quarantining, is not a good way to govern.
Without data to support locking down the nation’s population, or triple masking this shock to the economy should never have been implemented. We now have anew variant, omicron, and new talk about lockdowns, when in fact omicron is more like the common cold. It is not a killer. A recent medical report from an agency in India, population 1.4 billion, states there have been all of 115 deaths worldwide.
One death in India. The sky is not falling. We do need to continue to wash our hands and monitor our social intercourse. We should not succumb, once again, to lock-downs or extreme mandates.
