In public places, we need to cover our mouth and nose. Seeing what little as been done to prepare for the next wave, some people need to cover their butts.

I think that there will be some to blame for the fact that the country is not ready for a new wave of the epidemic. And in many ways the problem here is the lack of education of the population. After all, you need to inform people, explain what needs to be done, how to slow down the spread of the virus. So that people understand why they need to do this or that.

Unfortunately, the population at risk for false information consumption lack the very minimal tools for comprehending logical arguments.

Educated folk take for granted logical sequences of IF-THEN-ELSE and the like.

We accept authoratative statements from experts based on published evidence.

The susceptible however will simply argue that “That is merely an opinion!” There is actually no concept of what “science“ or proof might be, short of seeing with their own eyes.

OTOH, “beliefs” and their life-experience, make up their only toolset for processing new information:

That’s made up of a constellation of religious, magical and conspiratorial “convictions” of their culture.

All these “certainties” thru depend on are merely “memes“ of their culture little different from an isolated tribe in the Amazon jungles.

By contrast, religion in an educated person, (although perhaps equally “magical”), often can work as an isolated lacunar remnant of cultural belief that exists side by side with advanced appreciation of logic, rationalism and respect for science!

The educated orthodox Jew or Muslim will accept science and vaccine while running a religious time calendar of the earth being just over 5,000 years since creation!

The really uneducated in the USA, however, can simply object to vaccination on the grounds it’s just using folk as guinea pigs for an unproven threat!

So it’s not a natter of trying to convince folk.

They is as likely as feeding a horse gasoline as if it was a Ford truck!
