    Seems like at this point, it won't be over until everyone gets it and either dies or recovers.

    Singapore Will Stop Covering the Medical Bills of Unvaccinated COVID-19 Patients

    "Singapore's government has been covering the medical bills of COVID-19 patients throughout the pandemic," reports NPR. "But it says unvaccinated people will soon be on their own." Those who are "unvaccinated by choice" will have to start paying for their own COVID-19 treatment starting December 8, the Ministry of Health announced on Monday, citing the strain they are putting on the nation's health care system.

    "Currently, unvaccinated persons make up a sizeable majority of those who require intensive inpatient care, and disproportionately contribute to the strain on our healthcare resources," it said in a statement...

    "Our hospitals really much prefer not to have to bill these patients at all, but we have to send this important signal, to urge everyone to get vaccinated if you are eligible," Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said on Monday.

    Singapore has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. As of Sunday, 85% of its population was fully vaccinated, and 18% had received booster shots, according to health ministry data.

    Well by then I figure we've weeded out all the people that can't handle covid and ended up dying because of it. Most of those being unvaccinated of course.

    No to many variants are coming out it's just a matter of time before a more deadlier variant comes along I give it a year or two before that happens.

    Not sure why a deadlier variant would become the dominant strain since that would give it less chance to replicate than other strains. SARS-Cov-2's goal isn't to kill us, it's to replicate as much as possible. Now more contagious variants, sure, we'll see those pop up over and over.

    New variants are arising all the time.
    And its expected they should with something that reproduces this fast.

    Is this hater's alt?

    Thanks. What would it cost to get a few more years from you?

    Inept public health policy, COVID denialism, antivaxxers and hospital staff quitting all figure in the current wave of healthcare rationing in western states.

    My parents are old, got it, lived and are vaccinated. Chances are very low at this point that they die of it now.

    But your premise that this is over when everyone gets it is flawed. A person can get Covid again. And if that person happ3ns to be very old or sick they have a small chance of getting very sick or dying.


    Just like the regular flu kills the very old/sick on a yearly basis.

    I agree the pandemic is over. But Covid will be with us forever.

    We have at least another year before the pandemic is over. That is, it completes it's first pass through the population.

    Then it will probably develop some type of seasonality like the other endemic respiratory viruses. But yes, ultimately everyone gets infected repeatedly.

    It's borderline criminal to reduce Austria to Hitler's birthplace.

    Death and hospitalization -- though these have been terrible in the US due to our utter failure to control transmission and the gross caseload-- may not be the most significant outcomes of COVID-19. The disruption of work, leisure and society by the sequalae of infection for months and years might put the most severe outcomes in the shade in terms of cost and social impact.
