Response is COVID was more deadly and contagious. You would lose at mock trial.

Covid is a turbo-flu

Literally just a flu virus that was engineered in a lab to be more virulent and transmissible

Major assumptions and also retarded assuming that masking and sanitizing was anywhere near universal. Flu counts would still be way higher than they were. It's obvious they were being conflated by hospital$ to pump up the number$

Bro do you know how viruses work? Go look up the wikipedia entry on viruses or something

Flu has an r0 barely over 1. That's why it disappears at the end of every "flu season" - because any change in its environment whatsoever is enough to push the r0 under 1, at which point it dies out

You guys are just so aggressively dumb. For what it's worth, I initially had the exact same reaction as you ("Isn't it weird that the flu totally disappeared during covid?") Then one of my friends pointed the above out to me (it's gone because of the anti-covid measures that we're taking) and I was like oh...yeah, that's right

The difference between actually smart people and people who are not smart but think they are is that smart people are able to immediately recognize when they're wrong and adjust their priors instantly with no trouble

Yeah we literally could save tons of lives every year if we chose to follow draconian measures to do so. We could legally mandate that every citizen went around in self-contained environments like that Bubble Boy movie or even worse

But we don't do this. It doesn't seem reasonable or worth it overall from a cost-benefit analysis

Was the response to covid worth it? At what threshold of illness or death *would* it actually be worth it to pursue policies like China did for covid? A serious society with serious, intelligent people in power would be making these decisions explicitly and would have them completely ready before any crisis ever occured

But we are not a serious society that is run by intelligent individuals who are capable of difficult, complex value judgments like this, just like you are not a serious, intelligent individual who is even capable of grasping a 110 IQ-level abstraction

you are presuming that covid is literally just the flu (with no relevant variations re: infectiousness) in your question. seems like a controversial premise

and no one bothers to explain why we continued with masks/injections/distancing when the supposedly far less contagious flu bounced right back after virtually disappearing.
