Maybe what’s going to happen is:

certain parts of the world get access to a vaccine;

those parts of the world lose interest in covid (we see a strong tendency already, right?);

covid remains endemic to certain other parts of the world the first parts don’t care about;

we see new variants every few years that require new vaccines (as tweaks of old ones);

we get new shots, like the yearly flu shot;

covid becomes a chronic background thing, like tuberculosis or hepatitis C or MRSA;

life goes on, with yet another microbe trying to kill us and vaccines protecting us;

anti-vaxxers continue to be unable to grasp that 1 in 10,000 means hundreds of thousands and millions die unnecessarily because they don’t personally know someone who was affected.

Hmm, maybe I should put some paragraph breaks in here.

Amnesty International no longer calling Alexei Navalny a prisoner of conscience

Bermet Talant (@ser_ou_parecer) Tweeted: I’m Kyrgyz. So I take Navalny’s past ethno-nationalist and xenophobic statements personally. But Amnesty’s decision is wrong, and I don’t like the cynical misapplication of western liberal standards of debate around racism and hate speech. 1/x

Huh? [Googles.] Oh.

Maybe they felt burned by Aung San Suu Kyi?

I guess things are never as simple as we’d like, eh?

Covid-19

It’s just… like… a bad case of the flu. Young people aren’t really dying from it.
