Covidiots everywhere

Today, I realised the biggest FML this year was getting into online debates with people about Covid not being a hoax. One guy even said it was over, while I knew the numbers were climbing back up as I work in health-care, and I was sat on a toilet with diarrhea because I have Covid myself. FML

I literally just Googled that today. “Why do people think COVID is a hoax?”

Can someone help enlighten me? Anyone here who really think it’s some kind of hoax? Like just logically how could the entire world come together with a conspiracy that far-reaching? If it’s a hoax, where are all the deaths coming from? Why is it such a BFD just to wear a mask? Why does it have to be some political statement?

I feel like I’m kind of naive and expect people to just like...be rational and not be crazy...but this shit and the level of ignorance and insanity we’ve seen in recent years fucking boggles my mind...

Nobody really believes that covid is a "hoax".
It is a real virus. And people really do die from it. However, it is extremely over hyped.
According to the CDC something like 9,612 I think people have died from COVID 19 in the USA, as the only factor. That's something like 6% of all the "covid deaths". The remaining 94% had on average 2.5 "comorbidities", or contributing factors that played an equal role in the death of the patient. Things like organ failure, cancer, etc.

Pair this will the fact that the overall death rate in total for the US, hasn't really changed much.

With all that being said; if you are sick, quarantine. If you are vulnerable, socially distance, and wear a mask. If you are a perfectly healthy individual between the ages of 16-60, let's get back to work. The economy needs you. Covid may not be fun, but just watch what happens if the economy collapses.
