How should we approach this issue FROM A HEALTH PERSPECTIVE, with what we know now? How should we be prepared, both personally, as a region, a country, the world? Your thoughts?

Full mask mandates, mandatory vaccination to enter public places, and remote schooling until kids are vaccinated while community transmission is high.

Probably this, as unpleasant as it sounds. The schooling issue will be so difficult for parents.

Now that more young people are being affected, the ante is up.

Everyone here is masked and getting vaccinated. What else can we do!

That's how I feel too.

I'll go one step further - if you need a booster, get a booster. This is a work in progress. We haven't dealt with a full blown pandemic in the modern age before. There are bound to be missteps and miscalculations as we all learn from this.

Meanwhile, I've been vaccinated since March and feel fantastic.

Grace. Good lord, give some grace.

This virus isn't political. Quit using it for political ends and just chill out.

I think you guys are really arrogant. Many people have gotten covid with vaccines and died. In addition they have died from the vaccine.

Sorry you feel that way. The evidence is overwhelming that the vaccine is effective. Is it 100 percent effective? No. No vaccine is. Oh well.

Don't get it if you don't feel comfortable with it but don't judge others who do choose to get it. I did fine with it and still - so far, so good, so no regrets. But you do you.

I don't even know anyone who has been hospitalized with covid - so that's one perspective.

I will judge who I want to. But what I am saying is that as we go into the fall and winter there is zero guarantee that the vaccines will be effective.

There is no proof that the reduction in cases and deaths is because of the vaccine (and not the weather / time of year) and the next few weeks will really tell the tale.

Right now cases have gone from 10K a day in the USA to 40K and, if deaths go up as well, it will be obvious that the vaccines aren't that good.

You would be arrogant to be skipping around at the moment sure that your vaccine will keep you safe when you simply don't know and, you simply don't know if another booster will be safe.

Virtually everyone dying of Covid-19 today is someone who did not get vaccinated.

Surely, that cannot be a coincidence.
