He has changed his mind since the 9/march.
The fact of the matter is you are going to get it, and there is a +/- 3% mortality rate.
This 3% death rate is an average over the entire population, if you were to redo the figures for different age groups you will see in the elderly a much more alarming figure.
Corona virus is with us now, it is not going to go away. The only defense anyone has against it, is a vaccine, or to become immune by recovering from the disease, if you dont get this year you will next. The governments of the world know this. They are stalling for time, hoping that the population slowly recovers and develops an immunity, before it effects the majority of the population.
Being cynical > There is nothing more certain than death and taxes, and politicians being immoral people by nature, probably think in the long run, if the elderly and weak are taken out of the population, by not inoculating people, it will eventually reduce the burden on the health sector, and the rest of the public. They are also not a significant loss to the economy. If the virus was hitting those that contribute to the economy and young, then they might have more draconian measures in place already.
What the hell makes anyone think the corona virus will magically disappear in a year. It wont, its in the human population now, just like the flu, its going to carry on coming back every year. get over it and get immune, or go into permanent quarantine.
