I believe it's the whole part about 'bullying' someone into doing your bidding, i.e.: "do this thing I tell you, or else horrible consequences", that is driving a lot of people away and given the current media-climate and the number of times (especially in recent years), that [they] (as a machinery) have been exploiting peoples' fear to specifically push their own political agenda and the fact that people still remember the Swine flu and the dire consequences that Pandemrix (the 'vaccine') had for many people (narcolepsy)

I believe we're simply at the point where too many opinions have been mixed in with 'facts' (both with regards to science and actual 'news') and people have started relying more and more on their 'peers', the crux with that part being that their 'peers' are not necessarily just their co-workers/class-mates/family, but thanks to social media networking, an easily impressible 37 -year old may find him/her -self having an easier time to identify with someone their age-bracket, but in a completely different nation, with completely different surrounding circumstances to ones own and as such their opinion may lean more towards trusting said peers, than the (proven to be) hyperbolic media

the state of the world is a very complex situation and whether me sorting my garbage will save the planet from complete and total annihilation, or not isn't something that I think about, it's just something that I do, to feel more in line with how I think that the world at large should be functioning and by doing so, I may inspire others to do the same

whether a vaccine is the solution to Covid-19 or not, only time will tell; but for now, I believe we've since long reached a point of over-saturation and gone beyond the point of dumb, especially when it comes to Australia, since (evidentially) none of these measures have worked, nor will they have any greater effect by being continuously pushed upon people against their will

whatever the mortality-rate may, or may not be - we'll never know 100% for certain, since there are too many factors involved and too many opinions have diluted whatever 'facts' we could have had at this point

on that note; I still heartedly recommend anyone to get the vaccine, much like I will happily recommend anyone to recycle

I also believe the death toll is far higher than we shall ever know, especially in the third world countries and despotic regimes not wanting to reveal it.

Could the global Covid death toll be millions higher than thought?

Weight reduction mandates? BMI passports? Think about it...

Obesity in four out of ten adults with COVID-19 in intensive care
https://www.gu.se/en/news/obesity-in-four-out-of-ten-adults-with-covid-19-in-intensive-care
"A link was found between BMI over 30 and a 50 percent increase in mortality risk, compared with the normal-weight group. Among those who survived, a BMI over 35 proved to be linked with a risk of intensive care for over 14 days that was twice as high as the risk for patients of normal weight."
