I just want govt's to start having the discussion of where we go from here and what we do in the event a vaccine doesn't arrive. We need to talk about that and plan for it. We can't keep this shit going indefinitely. With the resurgence and talk of going back into stage 2 or even stage 1 scenarios isn't viable long term, financially or psychologically. And if we're lottery winning lucky and do get a vaccine it's still going to be years before everyone is vaccinated even with the world's pharmas going full tilt boogie. And that's not even accounting for mutations and different strains arising that aren't covered.
People are already starting to get edgy about this resurgence - which is mostly about economics and supply chains versus the virus itself. Went into Costco two days ago and they're now sold out of TP, paper towel, lysol wipes, etc. and that was with limiting those items to 1 per customer. Govt's must do more to alleviate that uncertainty because the strain will start causing people to crack en masse and shit will just go from bad to worse. My provincial govt is useless as tits on a bull. They just keep whinging about people not doing more but are doing sweet FA themselves. They've made it harder to get tests now and there's still zero tracking going on. Financial help looks like its going to disappear. What the fuck do they think is going to happen in the absence of real leadership with this sort of crisis? That people won't freak out and say 'Fuck it' and do whatever they want?
And all this bullshit with the US election isn't helping the rest of the world any either. Are we doomed? Is the end really nigh? It reminds me of that scene from The Omega Man
