I said that in March and ever since.
Masks, shutdowns, isolation......whatever. Not nearly enough to stop it from spreading. Which is worse, COVID deaths or all the damage bring done by suicide, nursing home isolation, students failing on line classes, deaths from untreated diseases, etc?
This is a one hundred year virus. Will a vaccine help? Don't know. RNA virus vaccines don't have the greatest track record, but we shall soon find out.

IMO. A policy of proper masks, low to moderate shutdowns (bars and large gatherings) and an inclination toward isolation with consistent adherence would have kept the virus down.

With the amount of money to made on a vaccine I feel pretty confident that something effective enough will be developed.

Which is worse Covid Deaths or.... Well, IMO, many senseless Covid deaths could have been avoided but its been a complete debacle. 241,000 dead vs failing online classes? Not sure I get the logic. A pandemic is no cakewalk but not trying to minimize the death toll is not the answer. Since March? Wow.
