Aside from the word game "Most have". repeatedly used - a vague term, the reality is that your little place of "around here" is irrelevant - the country is losing now 2000 souls each day. Infection rates (carriers and proportional to hospitalization, ICU needs, and ultimately deaths) have increase at frightening but not unexpected rate.

So you, looking out your window, think that reflects reality beyond the next hill? That's either very naive, very selfish, or both.


Meanwhile, your vaccine comment: great idea - and aside from the human loss, who's left to pick up the pieces when the vaccinated fill the hospitals and/or their corpses line the streets? You really need to brush up on just how great the "good old days" were - typhoid, tetanus, smallpox, and quite a list of others that made life suck for all involved.

Humans are a communal species and they need to cooperate as a community to achieve pretty much anything. Think about that when you next use your computer plugged into an outlet in the wall receiving power from a romote plant built and fueled by others in a chain of cooperation.

It does matter that "we all do our part" - and that includes not being vectors for disease transmission to others.
