Anyone citing the 'burden' the unvaccinated put on the HC system should know this arguably aggressive 6 mo. estimate put the cost of 'preventable' hosps with C19 (not from) at $13B.

Obesity in 2106? $260B

Given 👆 'may' triple hosp risk from C19, just imagine 2020 or '21...
Just imagine what good could've come -- not just with respect to Covid but for all other obesity and metabolic health-related illnesses - had PA emphasized, incentivized, and educated the public on the importance of and path toward good metabolic health...
We're all grown-ups here. We know that that's not going to happen and you don't have to dig too deep to understand why. Keeping people sick, fat, and medicated enriches far too many people.

However, draw the one at letting them tell you that unvaccinated people are the 'burden'.

In March 2020, my just-turned-18-year-old was told not to return to her ultra-liberal, elite, east coast university that she had worked her ass off to get into.

She finished the semester online.

In the fall of 2020, she took personal leave after learning the C19 restrictions…
…which included:

- being socially isolated
- living alone on campus
- masks in and outdoors
- no clubs or in-person events
- online classes
- mandated weekly testing
- take-out meals only, and
- harsh punishment and public shaming—including expulsion—for breaking C19 rules…
That’s not what college is about.

College is about learning and growing and exploring and becoming more independent and dating and joining clubs and eating shitty cafeteria food *with* friends and all-nighters and moving forward…

If the CDC, NHS, or any other PH/Epi surveillance authority really ‘can’t figure out’ if people are hospitalized ‘w/ Covid’ or ‘from Covid’, then…

a.) that lack of distinction applies to the entire last two years

b.) they lack the most basic skills their job requires…
…and should all be immediately replaced with people who called out this gross data collection flaw—oh—two damn years ago.
Bottom line: their stated ‘confusion’ is either a matter of lying to the public or gross incompetence.

Neither is defensible.

My favorite tweets of today summarized:

"If you only had your MPH, you would know that failure is actually a sign of success."
"I know I just pissed my pants in front of you but saying so isn't fair because you're not accounting for all the times you weren't around and I didn't piss my pants."
"The appearance of failure is the most anyone can reasonably expect from me."

So closing out 2021, we have seen:

@CDCDirector admitting that PCR is unfit for purpose of determining infectiousness

@DrLeanaWen admitting cloth masks are mere facial decorations


@chrislhayes acknowledging that we don’t reorient our lives around the flu.

Are we done now?

Anyone who thinks this is new info hasn't been paying attention.

And that's ok.

But all those people who called this out 18mo. ago?

They *were* paying attention.

Maybe we should start listening to them now since - you know - they've been paying attention all this time.
And their reward for paying attention - mind you - was endless scorn, derision, and moral accusations.

So maybe a little more consideration this time is in order.
And basic human decency aside, this matters because PCR is not fit for the purpose of determining infectiousness and infectiousness is the *only* reasonable justification for quarantining people (and even that is debatable).

Ergo we should not quarantine people based on PCR.

I’d bet there’s an honest mea culpa out there that sounds a lot like this:

“In March 2020, my life didn’t feel particularly meaningful & I wasn’t contributing much to the world.

Suddenly, I had a chance to feel like I could, w/o sacrificing anything I didn’t already want to…
“And for awhile I’ve suspected that the policies I was supporting didn’t quite make sense and were only superficially consistent with my values. But I resisted changing my mind because I really needed to believe I was one of the “good” ones — that I was doing the “right” thing…
“It’s very important to me to believe that I’m a good person and that those around me agree…
