- 15 days to flatten the curve!
- Oh, may be a month
- Two months
- Okay, at least 3 months
- Well, until a vaccine is available
- Wait, we do not trust vaccines – need to evaluate it ourselves, says Oregon
- It is a mystery why people say they will not get vaccinated…
(Basic idea for that was originally seen on social media.)
Easy to see why public health has lost credibility – they have repeatedly “over promised” and “under delivered”. Months ago, they were saying 300 million doses of vaccine to the U.S. by end of December. Hah hah. Perhaps by now they are under promising with an expectation of over delivering in 2021 – we hope.
“15 days to flatten the curve” has evolved into 18 to 21 months.
Making false assertions and promises leads to “Never Cry Wolf” – where no one believes public health anymore. And how do you address this?
