When it comes to Covid-19, we've shown ourselves to be a pretty reckless bunch. Trump wants to persuade voters that he'll have it wrapped up shortly after the election. Plenty will believe him even though he's a proven liar.
So, what's up?
I think Wolf Blitzer's interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci clears the air.
So there you have it. There's hope that a vaccine will come along somewhere around the New Year. It probably won't be completely effective. 75 per cent would be great. It's going to take months to produce hundreds of millions of doses and many more months to get the population, or enough of the population, vaccinated. Because the chances are really slim that we'll see a "magic bullet" vaccine, we will have to do the now familiar routines - handwashing, masks, social distancing, quarantines - for at least another year.
