We are all anxious to get over the Covid pandemic as soon as possible and get our lives back to normal as quickly as possible.
I have a simple, inexpensive solution that will open the country faster, Increase vaccination rates, overcome vaccine hesitancy and eliminate confusion about the effectiveness of the vaccines and exactly how prevalent adverse effects are.
Every day the governors of the states and health departments broadcast the daily death and hospitalization statistics.
We all know and have seen that self-interest bests a sense of social responsibility towards your community. Health departments, CDC officials have run numerous public service announcements and pleaded with people to wear masks and maintain social distancing for the benefit of our fellow citizens without having people take responsibility towards their fellow citizens seriously enough to wear a mask.
The solution is right before us, simple and inexpensive and can be easily implemented by the doctors, nurses, first responders, and government officials who want the economy to get back in gear, see tax revenues rise, have happy voters that are ecstatic that their lives are getting back to normal.
What is this simple solution? Simply have the health and government authorities break down their daily hospitalization and death statistics.
All they need to do is break down the statics into the number of vaccinated people that died and the number of unvaccinated people who have died.
All they need to do is break down the number of people in hospitals from COVID into vaccinated and unvaccinated.
All they need to do is break down the number of people on vaccinators to those who have had vaccines and those who have not been vaccinated.
Let the numbers speak for themselves to people.
As an added bonus it will clear away the fog of disinformation that has been plaguing the average citizen who has questions about the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. They have questions about whether they should get the vaccine that some falsely say is no worse than the flu.
There have been a lot of needless deaths and needless suffering. Let’s end it now with this simple solution.
The hospitals most likely already have this information. Some people may not want to share this information. We can have a third category of unknown but I think the results will show overwhelmingly the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine.
The data can be anonymous like the current death and hospitalization counts so it doesn’t violate any privacy rules.
It’s simple, low cost and we can do this easily to end the needless suffering and deaths.
