Ideally yes but is it really achievable and at what time frame and societal costs?

God comes to you and says he can cure Covid for you if you hang 100 Australians. But if you wait 6 months you get the same cure, over which period perhaps 15 people will die.

You’re stringing them up?
Yep especially if I can pick the 100.

Re: Coronavirus

I think that people get too caught up thinking about the risk of an individual v risk across an entire population. You see it with the disease. People minimise the disease saying that you have a 99% chance of living. That's fine at an individual level but across the whole population, a lot of peopl...

Re: Coronavirus

It’s not about “safe”. It’s about weighing risk. Currently the rate and risk of death from the vaccines is higher than covid in certain age groups. There are viable alternatives with (at least from the information available now) less risk than both. As long as there is a manageable timeframe for th...

“Virtually no deaths” isn’t the same as no deaths GE that’s why I asked at what point would you consider it safe and worth the risk.

Re: Coronavirus

As you acknowledged earlier no vaccine is without risk, no medicine is without risk, it’s safe for 99.9999% of the population, at what point do you consider it safe, 1 in 1,000,000, 1 in 10,000,000?

At 1 in 100,000-200,000 chance I’m confident you do riskier things. How long would you be willing to wait for the safer vaccine?

So let’s take the worst estimate 1 in 100,000, essentially if every Australian got the AZ vaccine that would be about 250 deaths, if everyone on earth got it it would be roughly 80,000 deaths.

I think that the AZ is done in this country. There have been two deaths linked to it. Two too many. There are safer and more effective vaccines, and we have the luxury of time. We should be sending what we can to India who clearly need it more than us. Correlation does not equal causation, now even...

The Republicans won’t go the 25th route so I’m hoping the Dems rush through impeachment, it would purely be symbolic but **** twice impeached one term president would be an appropriate epitaph for him in the history books.
