Covid definitely leads to progress, that is, the progress of everyone understanding that their government is run by senile debile idiots that can't predict that after 6 months gone by 6 months have passed and that after Summer always Winter follows. And if you think I am joking, look at German Covid numbers which are nearly entirely produced by one of the dumbest governments I had ever the misfortune to experience - TWICE they opened in summer, forgot to vaccinate or buy boosters, ignored calls from Science and our experts and instead claimed "Freedom Day" will soon be upon us. My region just reached 1000 incidence numbers (in 100k. awesome) means 1% of the entire population is infected at the same time.
Needless to say, I will not ever again vote SPD or CDU ! GRMGL
Also, of course it was a German to come up with the best phrase to describe this 4th wave
Tyranny of the unvaccinated and ignorant
A democracy clearly can not cope with both at the same time.
