Read this post today on Kottke, which is mostly commentary around this twitter thread.
One quote toward the end stood out:
The idea that we can live with Covid WITHOUT any mitigation measures and expect things to turn out ok (both for individuals and as a society) is a lie.
The thing is, we have the best mitigation measure we can get: vaccines. It isn’t going to get better than this, and human beings have already stretched themselves as far as is possible with quarantines and the like.
SARS-Cov-2 is here to stay. Get vaccinated, and get back to life.
