The Neverending Pandemic

Well, 2021 has arrived and it is already a shitshow here in the States, with a treasonous president leading a bunch of slack-jawed morons in one of the stupidest attempts at stealing power in history. That event pushed the pandemic off the front pages, despite record daily death tolls across the nation as the second wave passes through. As I write this, the country has seen over 400,000 dead from COVID-19 (about a fifth of the 2 million lost worldwide), a disease that for many was entirely avoidable. With Joe Biden now in charge, the fight against the virus is again the story of the day.

And wouldn't you know it, the first story involves more scaremongering. New variants of the virus have been discovered and travelers are carrying them around the world! Oh no! They are more contagious! Possibly more deadly! Shut everything down again! The anxiety of the ill informed has intensified as a result of these newfound mutations, but nothing has actually changed. Viruses mutate naturally, and the coronavirus will continue to do so, for the rest of our lives. Yes, like the flu, the coronavirus is here to stay. And just like the flu in 1918, it is going to run through the world's population before it settles down into a regular illness. If we react like Chicken Little every time a new variant appears, a permanent shutdown is the only solution. Is that going to happen? Despite the title of this post, of course not. 

In fact, the end is in sight, but you wouldn't know it from all the idiocy that continues. Study history a bit and you will see that pandemics operate in three or four waves and last about two years. We are a year into this one with the second wave peaking around now, which is exactly what you would expect. In fact, cases have been dropping since early January, and deaths are already starting to follow this trend. The second wave should dissipate by the end of February, and there likely will be a smaller third wave sometime this year, though with much of the vulnerable population vaccinated, it should have limited impact. I don't expect a fourth wave and by the autumn of 2021 if not earlier, we should be returning to some semblance of normality. Assuming we have competent leaders. Update November 2021: That was a bad assumption.

Obviously, the most inept player has waddled off the stage, but other governments continue to overreact in the opposite direction. Canada now requires a negative COVID test for airline passengers AND a 14-day quarantine. They are even considering enforcing the quarantine in a hotel for international visitors arriving by air, despite little evidence that such travelers are the source of outbreaks. Perhaps allowing truckers to roam freely after crossing the border might have something to do with their inability to keep things under control. Meanwhile, other countries are now stopping flights from places where a new variant has been discovered, which will become a logistical nightmare as more and more mutations happen. It is amazing that officials have yet to realize that the virus will spread regardless of the "Whack-a-Mole" attempts to control it. That is how viruses work. Even places like Australia and New Zealand, which have used strict border controls and lockdowns to stave off the virus, likely will have some sort of outbreak eventually, though with few deaths if their population has been vaccinated.

A pandemic should not wreak this much havoc on daily life, but when health officials set policy, they only care about avoiding death, not quality of life. The statement: "sacrifice lives or sacrifice the economy" has become a cliché, but it is false. There is no trade-off; the disease can be avoided by adopting some simple (but strict) protocols without destroying so many jobs. Of course, short shutdowns to avoid overwhelming hospitals are a necessity, but these have morphed into long lockdowns that will result in a humanitarian crisis beyond the death toll, with millions unemployed and suffering food shortages. President's Biden's $1.9 trillion package is nice, but a temporary measure. This will be the first pandemic to lead to so many additional deaths from other causes because of the inability of experts to focus on the big picture, outside their area of expertise.

The best advice has not wavered from the beginning: always wear a mask, stay clear of crowds, keep your hands clean, take vitamin D supplements, and most importantly, avoid poorly-ventilated, confined places with people with whom you do not reside. That means bars, restaurants, gyms, casinos, churches, and friends' and relatives' domiciles. That is all you have to do to avoid contracting the virus and this information was available in April of last year. It is unfortunate that many chose to ignore it and paid for that choice with their lives. Of course, many of those who died had no say in the matter: nursing home residents were sitting ducks, while frontline workers, including those in grocery stores and other essential businesses, had to continue to face customers who refused to follow basic pandemic protocols before bringing the virus home to elder relatives. But for the rest, a simple mask and some minor adjustments to your daily routine were all that were needed to remain alive.

I have continued to travel and watch sports when possible because I believe that both are safe, as long as you follow the advice above. I have taken several trips, both with and without my family, and I have never been concerned for our safety. I have attended 14 events since June and again, never feared for my welfare, with social distancing and masks mandated in every stadium. To compare, my neighbours threw a party and invited 10 people to their tiny apartment; that one act was far more dangerous than my 14 events. Still, I don't expect New York to be allowing baseball fans anytime soon, despite the clear lack of evidence against outdoor transmission.

Although I believe that traveling is safe, many don't and are not afraid to tell everyone else to stay home. These self-righteous hypocrites have been cowed into spending their lives indoors and criticize anyone who decides to do something the least bit risky. Without exception, these are the white and privileged who seem to think that everyone should adopt the same ultra-low risk tolerance they have. Easy to do when you have a big place in which to work from home. I have seen many people eating indoors and certainly would not do that myself, but I also wouldn't criticize them for making that choice. George Carlin famously quipped, "Did you ever notice how everyone that drives slower than you is an idiot and everyone who drives faster is a maniac?" The same goes here. We all have a different risk tolerance, and the information we need to remain safe is widely available. Sadly, not everyone chooses to use that information and there is little that others can do about it. 

The media makes money on page views these days, so expect more clickbait and scaremongering, especially whenever a new variant surfaces. Read these articles with the knowledge that we are not facing anything new and this virus is operating the way other viruses have in the past, mutating until it can no longer spread, whether through herd immunity or a low transmission rate. The advantage this time is the rapid availability of a number of vaccines, which should help end the pandemic sometime this year and gives us all something to look forward to.

NFL Playoff Picture - Week 17


Here is the final playoff picture. Teams are bolded on the week they clinch a spot, and crossed out when eliminated. 
AFC

NE  6-6   NE   6-7  NE   6-8        
Week 17: Buffalo destroys the Dolphins and eliminates them after Baltimore, Cleveland, and Indy all win. Titans take the South due to a better divisional record. The Ravens swept the Browns and beat the Colts so they take 5th, Cleveland beat Indy for 6th. Wild Card: Colts at Bills, Browns at Steelers, Ravens at Titans.

Week 16: The Dolphins knock out Vegas and jump to the top wild card spot as their 7-4 conference record is better than the other three contenders at 6-5, while the Chiefs have clinched the bye. The Colts blowing a 17-point lead against Pittsburgh not only cost them the division title, but sends them out of the playoffs as they also lost to both Baltimore and Cleveland earlier this season. Indy does have an easy game in Week 17 but with Pittsburgh and Buffalo likely to rest starters, Cleveland and Miami have a better chance at victory. Playoff predictions if better teams win: Dolphins at Bills, Colts at Steelers, Ravens at Titans. Playoff predictions if Miami and Cleveland win: Browns at Bills, Ravens at Steelers, Dolphins at Titans.

Week 15: After their "miracle" win over the Jets, Vegas has lost two straight; their Week 16 game against Miami should determine the 7th and final spot. Buffalo clinches their first division title since 1995 with a rout of Denver and takes over second spot with Pittsburgh in freefall. New England misses the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and nobody sheds a tear. Playoff predictions: Ravens at Bills, Titans at Browns, Steelers at Colts.

Week 14: Buffalo beats Pittsburgh while KC upends Miami to take the top spot. The Dolphins maintain the final spot as their 5-4 conference record is better than Baltimore at 5-5. Cleveland is the fifth seed as they beat Indianapolis earlier in the year.

Week 13: Pittsburgh (8-0 in the conference) retains top spot but they have not clinched a spot as the Chiefs have. Indy is in the 7th and final spot due to their worse divisional record (2-2) than Tennessee (3-1) and worse conference record (4-4) than Miami (5-3). The Colts are the only team to win all 4 games against the NFC, though a few others can join them. Vegas (5-3) has a better conference record than Baltimore (4-5).

                    NYG  5-9   NYG 5-10  
Week 17: The Giants eliminate Dallas, but the Eagles let WFT win to take the horrid East. The Rams knock out Arizona, which allows Chicago to take the final spot as they had a better record in common games (3-2 vs Lions, Panthers, Rams and Giants while Cardinals were 1-4). Saints grab the #2 spot as their 10-2 conference record is a game better than Seattle. Wild Card: Bears at Saints; Rams at Seahawks; Buccaneers at WFT. No change from Week 16.

Week 16: The Saints clinch the South, while the Vikings are eliminated. The Buccaneers clinch a wild-card spot by routing Detroit. Arizona needs to beat the Rams in Week 17 or they are out, as Chicago has won three straight to take over that final spot. The NFC East gets worse every week; if WFT beats Philly in the Sunday night game, they are in, but if they lose, then the winner of the Cowboys/Giants takes that spot and a likely home tilt against TB with TB. Playoff predictions: Bears at Saints; Rams at Seahawks; Buccaneers at WFT.

Week 15: The Packers look like a good bet for the top seed. The Vikings look like a good bet to miss out. Seattle takes over the West with the Rams shocking loss to the Jets. They meet next week with the winner likely to take the division title. For now, the Rams hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over Tampa Bay with their win back on November 23. The Saints remain second as their 8-2 conference record is better than Seattle's 7-3. Washington need one more win to eliminate Dallas (who they swept) and have to hope that the Giants (who swept them) lose once more. Playoff predictions: Cardinals at Saints; Rams at Seahawks; Buccaneers at WFT.

Week 14: The Saints loss to the Eagles allows the Packers to take over top spot as they won the matchup in Week 3 and thus own the tiebreaker. Tampa Bay beat Minnesota to give them a two-game advantage, while Arizona knocked off the Giants to move into a playoff spot while also giving WFT a chance for the East Division lead, which they took by defeating San Francisco.

Week 13: The Rams beat Seattle but they play again, while the Giants have swept Washington but have the tougher remaining schedule. Minnesota holds the final spot by virtue of a 2-2 record against common opponents (Cowboys, Panthers, Seahawks, Lions) while Arizona is 2-3.
