Great cartoon, and, unfortunately, often very true.
It is a bit curious though, during Shakespeare’s prime, the Globe Theatre was closed for 5 years out of 7 due to the bubonic plague raging through London: 1603 - 1610. So they understood even back then what to do. Even when The Decameron was written in the 14th century, they at least knew to isolate. Yet now that we have far more complete, understandable and consistent information, some people really seem to have completely lost their minds.
Now that Pfizer is approved, I wonder if that excuse will really ring true or not. I haven’t had any exchange about vaccines since the approval, so I wonder what the story will be now. Having had a few exchanges now, it seems like they see the expert as part of the cabal. So they listen to a snake oil salesman instead.
I guess the truth is more awkward, cluttered and incomplete, than snake oil.
