It’s gonna level out if we follow the UK. I’m really tired of all the fear mongering. But i dont want to have to travel ever again. And I live in Texas so no mask I guess I can’t complain.

A2 from the link you posted. the available data indicate that COVID-19-associated hospitalization and death is uncommon in children. At this time, it still appears that severe illness due to COVID-19 is rare among children Goes on to say 3% of cases were children and a fraction of a percent of child cases resulted in death. Sorry, i don’t recognize the need for draconian lockdowns based on those numbers.

Are the death rates amongst the vaccinated still going up? My fear is that a new variant comes up and the current vaccines are not effective against it

Tbh, once you get the vaccine I think it’s fair to live your life unless if there’s a new variant that the vaccine is ineffective against. I go out and live my life now but wear masks, sanitize and all that. Just seeing my family and friends. Still avoiding big parties and concerts but did book one for end of year so hopefully it gets better by then

yikes!
