This graph first appeared on the internet in late June, but nothing has changed. Nothing has changed! We’re now entering our third wave of Covid-19. If the second wave was “stupid,” what in heaven’s name is the third wave? Criminal? If your refusal to wear a mask results in someone else’s death, isn’t that criminal?
People say they’re tired of wearing masks, or tired of socially distancing, or tired of washing their hands — if they ever did — so they don’t comply. Are they trying for a fourth wave? A fifth?
Mask-wearing has been highly politicized in some quarters, but viruses don’t respect one’s politics. Non-compliance helped get us where we are. Non-compliance could keep us here.
Sure, Covid vaccines are coming, sooner or later. But there’s no vaccine for stupid.
So wear a mask. If it helps, think of it as a way to hide your stupidity.
