PostThe Djokovic Affair is Simple... (Paul Pitlick, USA, 01/23/22 5:27 am)
I usually love David Duggan's writing style and content, but the substance of the Djokovic story is much shorter than this.
The tennis player (indeed all of us) should have just been vaccinated. Period. Currently, after two years the US is in its 6th wave of COVID, far more cases than previously, and according to the NY Times data, 3866 Americans died of COVID just yesterday. That number has been rising.
JE comments: Can we already be in the sixth wave? March 14th (my birthday, ouch) will mark two years since Covid officially became a pandemic. (March 11th can also lay claim to anniversary status.) Its only major precursor of modern times, the Spanish Flu of 1918-1919, didn't last this long.
Soon enough, we may have to change our name to the World Association of Influenza Studies...
