Join the fight against COVID

I’m sick of the pandemic. You are sick of the pandemic. We are all very, very sick with the pandemic. It seemed as if last spring vaccinations might soon end this ordeal…and then Delta brought a new wave of misery and death, nearly all of it to those who didn’t. vaccinated. The enhanced footage seems to promise a real measure of freedom as we head into this winter… and now Omicron may (or may not) take us back once more. Viruses are microscopic fragments of parasitic proteins that exist only to replicate themselves, but natural selection makes them formidable and shape-shifting enemies. Since it mutates and spreads from person to person and from continent to continent, SARS-CoV-2 doesn’t care if we get tired of the fight; in fact, when potential human hosts act as if the pandemic is over, they greatly benefit the virus. Even before Omicron raised its ugly, mutated head, COVID was killing more than 1,200 Americans every day — a rate of more than 430,000 deaths each year. In 1943, everyone was certainly sick of the Second World War. But one side cannot call the war to an end and expect peace to follow. This pandemic is a war between all of humanity and an invading virus. People are smarter (or should be); less than a year after a new virus began to strike, science, medicine, and government have invented, manufactured, and begun distributing billions of doses of weapons sophisticatedly designed to neutralize SARS- CoV-2. But millions have refused to join the army, and vaccines have so far been inaccessible to large populations. Given time and opportunity, the enemy continues to develop new weapons of his own. Our frustration and impatience will not change reality. So let’s put pants on our little boy and girl and do what it takes to end this damn pandemic. Vaccination. Be promoted. Wear a mask in public places indoors. Do not spread the virus. Join the war effort.
