Our monomaniacal focus on COVID may have a silver lining.

This is an interesting report from Joseph Curl, for the Daily Wire:

Scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research think they have created a new vaccine that is effective against all COVID and SARS variants, according to a new report.

“Within weeks, scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research expect to announce that they have developed a vaccine that is effective against COVID-19 and all its variants, even Omicron, as well as from previous SARS-origin viruses that have killed millions of people worldwide,” Defense One first reported.

It isn’t inconceivable that we could come to the end of virus’s reign in human society.  That said, we should be cautious about anything with such huge implications.  We don’t know what we don’t know.  The operation of viruses in our world might be having positive biological and social effects that we need to supplement, and more generally, there’s an intrinsic benefit to making your body strong independently of artificial intervention.

If socialism destroys our society’s ability to keep producing the miracle drugs, for example, we’ll very much want our immune systems to be well developed, not atrophied.
