Different people can experience pandemic fatigue at different times. People affected by the pandemic, or who entered a state of heightened caution very early on, are likely to experience an early onset of pandemic fatigue. People who have not experienced the impact of the pandemic, or who have been violently subjected to preventive or preventive measures without realizing the need for them, may also have already experienced pandemic fatigue
A sense of complacency can also arise from desensitization and prolonged media exposure to COVID-19 19 Like the top of exposure therapy; repeated exposure to pandemic news will eventually reduce initial feelings of fear and caution. Therefore, we can begin to engage in behaviors that were initially inhibited by fear responses, such as B. Not following social distancing rules or washing our hands as regularly as before.
After almost two years, it should come as no surprise to anyone; many are at least tired and even more tired and sick – and – tired of this terrible pandemic and its impact on our lives! However, this must not and cannot justify the total contempt of some, in terms of respect for the common good and respect for elementary measures, common sense, public health, and protection! How did this become another political issue where so many people seem to put their own personal/political interests and goals first? How many more have to be infected, hospitalized, endanger others, and/or die?
Many older people have lost the battle, as has the immune system, and we still do not know all the possible consequences and long-term consequences! Despite the effort and expense, why does this country have one of the lowest vaccination rates in the world among the world’s top industrialized countries? Everyone is fed up and would love to get back to normal, but minority efforts hamper our overall efforts and the potential to optimize our efforts! With that in mind, in this article, we will try to briefly examine and analyze the problem and explain why we need to do better.
For some reason, some prefer to believe unfounded, opinions, and accept them, instead of facts. It began with denials, transformed into accusations, and created harmful resistance. Is there anyone, who has not witnessed or experienced the loss of someone close? While everyone is entitled to an opinion of their own, they are not, to their own set of facts. It is one thing if your actions only harmed you, but quite – another, when it puts others, at – risk!
Why has it gotten so political, it seems a matter of common sense. There is a world of difference between a workable solution and a well-thought-out plan as opposed to blaming and complaining, denying and being stubborn!
Data and Science Matter:
Mike Bloomberg likes to say, “We trust God.” Everyone else brings the data. History shows that it takes a science-based plan, endorsed and supported by public health, medical and scientific staff, and experts, to make meaningful, evidence-based efforts.
While we’ve seen public health regulations in the past, we appear to be facing the most polarized nation in recent memory! Just because someone disagrees doesn’t mean they know more than the experts!
Either we act more justly or we prolong the horrors. Wake up America, before many others, lose this fight! It depends on each of us!
