By now everyone knows that Covid-19 attacks its victims in their anatomical boiler room - the heart and lungs. But Covid-19 has a new and very dangerous ally. These people, what I like to call the "second wave" lunatics, are all that is needed to take the pandemic to an entirely new level.
By and large they're Trump supporters and, yes, they have signs.
It's people just like these who will set America and perhaps the rest of the world on the road to a second, more deadly, wave of this pandemic.
Conventional wisdom among scientists suggests second waves of resistant infections occur after the capacity for treatment and isolation becomes exhausted. In this case the concern is that the social and political consensus supporting lockdowns is being overtaken by public frustration – which has triggered protests in the US and elsewhere – and the urgent need to reopen economies.I hope Justin keeps this in mind when Trump comes calling demanding we re-open our borders.
