@leanleft @10_0 Putin has been threatening the nuclear option for one.
Theres another pandemic?
There is still the same one. It never went away in the west. The government just gave up, and the media cycle stopped covering it.
Here’s a graph of the cases for Germany, from covid19.who.int:
When there were 150000 cases in Dec 2020, they did all the lockdown and restrictions and stuff. Now there still is 170000 cases and almost no-one cares. You can also notice the huge spike earlier in 2022 — not one of the previous years, where the pandemic still was taken somewhat seriously.
@guojing firstname.lastname@example.org true, and the governments never should have interfered in the marketplace to begin with. Every time they do it takes away power from the working class to make changes themselves. Don’t fool yourselves authoritarian governments are no friend to us.
Why should anyone care about cases? What matters is that almost no one is dying from covid anymore.
oh sure, we should just ignore the mass disabling because that’s somehow unimportant. Also overwhelmed hospitals–who cares right? Also, for instance, this year we have had more deaths where I am than we did for all of 2020 and 2021 combined. So people in fact are still dying
So what, different countries are different? What a shock!
you’re the one who said almost no one is dying from covid and you shouldn’t care about cases. I’m telling you that is a really selfish and factually inaccurate statement. Go be grumpy at someone else
Its factually accurate in my country. Not everyone lives wherever you live.
Yes, exactly not everyone lives where you live. So it is wild to act like the covid pandemic is over and say “why should anyone care”
@guojing @leanleft an out date meme surely. Posted by snorlax.
