Whether that number is accurate or not, it's irrelevant to a more salient point:
Continuing to spread the virus (whether an individual recovers or not) allows greater opportunity for the virus to mutate into variants that are more contagious and more deadly.
It's a public health issue, it's not just about what it does to the individual who doesn't care if they contract it or not.
I know several vaccinated people that have gotten Covid after being fully vaccinated…and they got it from other vaccinated people.
I’m not anti-vaccine…I’ve been vaccinated as has the rest of my family. Personally, I think people should strongly consider getting the vaccine because some protection is better than none. But I really hope that therapeutics become a bigger priority than they currently are.
I know several people that were very sick recently and had to scramble for days to find someone to write a prescription for ivermectin(which is not even approved for Covid I guess?)…Anyways, thankfully they were able to get some and started feeling a lot better within a day of taking it.
Disclaimer: I’m not giving medical advice on ivermectin. I don’t know much about it at all. Just sharing what worked for a few older people I know who contracted Covid. When you’re desperate and fighting against this virus, you’ll try anything. Hopefully a great therapeutic can be developed in the future that’s easy to get and safe/effective.
