From the Burn Murdoch thread, there are three policies we need to implement.
lockdown to stop transmission. It is not enough to proscribe large events we have let it go too far. The best way to stop social mixing is lockdown.
Death rates are pretty stable. Don't think we've moved out of the 100 to 150 per day range for months now. If we accepted these deaths in September, why suddenly stop in November?
Increased booster program especially for the elderly. Vaccines are wearing out.
Yes, of courses vaccines wane, but we already are underway with the booster program.
Mask mandate, indoor and out door, preferably double masking like in India.
Restricting unvaxxed - as a way to encourage vax rates - would have more impact.
If we lock down now, we might be able to save Christmas.
Who gives a sh.t about Christmas. When did we all get obsessed with a single event. Supply chains can fail most of the year, but not Christmas, that would be awful.
