Obviously if we had achieved containment early on this could have been another SARS 1 but at this point Iím not sure there are any examples of another option historically.

depends on how you define a pandemic, I guess. TB has effective & widely available pharmaceuticals and it just kinda chugs along killing a million+ people each year, every year. itís a disease thatís just here now, and our lives are worse & shorter than if it were not here

thats been the punch line ive been mulling over for >6mo now. if it can't be contained, the best we can hope for is harm reduction while it circulates periodically causing massive waves of suffering, but not in USA (or USA-petit) which is constantly reupped on the mrna juice.

definitely don't need to distribute methods for making vaccines or ramping up production tho, thats for sure.

COVID-19 lockdowns show reduced pollution on snow and ice in the Indus River Basin posted:

Melting snow and ice supply water for nearly 2 billion people [J. S. Mankin, D. Viviroli, D. Singh, A. Y. Hoekstra, N. S. Diffenbaugh, Environ. Res. Lett. 10, 114016 (2015)]. The Indus River in South Asia alone supplies water for over 300 million people [S. I. Khan, T. E. Adams, ďIntroduction of Indus River Basin: Water security and sustainabilityĒ in Indus River Basin, pp. 3−16 (2019)]. When light-absorbing particles (LAP) darken the snow/ice surfaces, melt is accelerated, affecting the timing of runoff. In the Indus, dust and black carbon degrade the snow/ice albedos [S. M. Skiles, M. Flanner, J. M. Cook, M. Dumont, T. H. Painter, Nat. Clim. Chang. 8, 964−971 (2018)]. During the COVID-19 lockdowns of 2020, air quality visibly improved across cities worldwide, for example, Delhi, India, potentially reducing deposition of dark aerosols on snow and ice. Mean values from two remotely sensed approaches show 2020 as having one of the cleanest snow/ice surfaces on record in the past two decades. A 30% LAP reduction in the spring and summer of 2020 affected the timing of 6.6 km3 of melt water. It remains to be seen whether there will be significant reductions in pollution post−COVID-19, but these results offer a glimpse of the link between pollution and the timing of water supply for billions of people. By causing more solar radiation to be reflected, cleaner snow/ice could mitigate climate change effects by delaying melt onset and extending snow cover duration.

Absolutely. probably better protection against newer variants including the B1617 Indian variant

Side effects might include smug sense of superiority

my idiot state is drat near under the 10 per 100k case mark. Just over 3% today and Tuesday's always the highest of the week. I feel like things are gonna be more or less 'normal' here until the fall and then knows what will happen

I don't know what to make of testing in our stupid dumb state, to be honest. Anecdotally, I know two people (not yet fully vaxxed) who've had their PCPs tell them not to get tests when they had symptoms that should have been suspicious. One of them ended up testing positive and the other didn't go to get tested. I also know a lot of people who are still doing weekly mandatory testing. I believe that we're probably holding things at a reasonably low level, but I also have a feeling our testing numbers don't entirely reflect the situation accurately.
