Well, Biden said long ago that the entire world would end up with covid at some point, and well, now Biden has it. That being said he claims he’s fine and doing well and its business as usual at the White House.
“I’m doing well, getting a lot of work done, going to continue to get it done,” Biden said. “And in the meantime, thanks for your concern, and keep the faith. It’s going to be okay.”
Nothing to see here, he has a cold, and runny nose and dry cough. Hey, we’ve all had that at many points during our lives. It appears people are getting tired of the constant mutation warning bells from scientists. They’ve pretty much had their 15 minutes of fame in spades.
The virus — which is widespread and overwhelmingly causing mild illness right now — simply does not scare people like it used to.
So many people are getting infected that the “fear of the unknown” is fading, Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, an infectious-diseases expert at UC San Francisco, said in an interview.
“You get it yourself and know tons of people who got it, and you fear it less,” he said.
With over 2 years of panicking the world over a virus that initially was pretty damn bad, but over time became much milder, it seems that people are just moving on from the news of Covid. I remember the days when we hung on every word of news that discussed Covid. We all ended up becoming scientists on our own. We knew R-naughts, and various mutations, and fomites, and all manner of shit to combat Covid. We washed our groceries, we took off our shoes and sanitized them, we sanitized our bodies upon entry into our homes, we lived like hermits in our houses afraid to go out, shit, we pretty much did the grand tour on Covid.
Media of course obsessed over it and then made us obsess over it, and even though they still try to get us to obsess over it, it’s not happening anymore. People are done with it and moving on. Hell, Biden had 4 shots and still got it. Hey, you can’t do much better than that on vaccines. So even though the media wants us to obsess over it like OMG, Biden has Covid, OMG what are we going to do? It’s like I think the only message out there is that cold viruses are still with us, and will be with us as long as humans exist. We are all going to get Covid or some form of it, and I guess we’ll just have to deal with it.
