    The original flu pandemic was in 1918, the original vaccine was developed in 1940, and only used in civilians by 1945. By 1947 it became obvious the virus has been mutating and the vaccine wasn't as effective.

    In 1957 the first mutation showed up, which triggered another pandemic that killed 1.1 million people globally. Took almost 3 years to develop new effective vaccines, based on the first ones.

    Then in 1968, a new mutation showed up and triggered yet another pandemic with another 1 million people dead globally.

    Since then, there has been relatively minor flare ups like H1N1 or avian flu.

    So:
    - We're in a much, much better place to handle this than in the past.
    - We need to learn from the past. If we can avoid it, don't let the virus fester and mutate.
    - Getting this under control doesn't happen overnight.
    1. We have 8 billion humans now
    2. Most of those humans still live in similar.conditions to 1957
    3. You are now going from erradication to getting this under control. Thats a big change. And it.shows that you are finally realizing this virus will live with us probably forever

    The Polio virus is still "with us" but you don't seem worried about that.

    I never made the claim we were going to eradicate the virus. Quote me where I did?

    This started with me responding to a tweet you posted from "Potato of Reason" claiming that there's some non-obvious endgame other than combating the virus and that getting everyone vaccinated is an unachievable goal.

    Exactly. Like I said, how do you even prove complete eradication? It's not possible. However, there's a level between that and what we have now we're all comfortable living with, which is what under control means.

    Nobody said complete eradication in a matter of weeks/months, but driving R < 1.0 is all you need, then let time do it's thing. That's how other prior pandemics were dealt with as well.

    I mean, I've said a couple times already in this very thread that even claiming you've fully eradicated a given virus is technically impossible, why would I make the claim we can eradicate it?

    Now that you acknowledge it's never going away tell how you think we will stop it from mutating

    By taking the commies here in the USA, the whole damn sham administration, and sending them over to China to be with their handlers, the CCP, and nuking them out of existence.

    We dont.
    What makes you think mutations are bad?
    Most cold viruses have mutated so as to give minor symptoms that just help in spreading it.
    This is an example of a good mutation or variant.
    And it makes much more sense from an evolutionary point of view.

    So you are saying all the variations will have increasing detrimental symptoms on the host?

    We can't stop people dying on roadways.

    Therefore speed limits and drunk driving laws are pointless.

    Caution is for the weak.

    We need to stop people from driving until nobody dies on the roadways. Then we can start driving again unless someone dies in a car accident, then we have to stop driving again.

    It's logical

    Google already has a mandate, federal mandate is coming Thursday. Frequent COVID testing is an option for those who still don't want to get the jab.
