If you make covid vaccine, you want to keep on making covid vaccine.
– If you make covid face masks, you want to keep on making covid face masks.
– If you are a private firm, doing covid tests, you want to keep on testing for covid.

Maybe we need to reconsider capitalism. It’s true that it motivates a lot of productivity, but everything gets done, not for its own sake but for reasons that aren’t relevant to the activity it motivates.

Michael, beware speaking too soon about the pandemic winding down. That certainly isn’t how it looks to the doctors and medical staff. They get overloaded every winter, and the major part of that is ‘flu and the like. But due to lockdowns, those were nearly absent last winter, so they’re likely to be back with a vengeance this time.

Plus, vaccine immunity fades. This is gradual and there’s no clear line, but the timescale I keep hearing is “about six months”. Because the UK’s vaccine rollout started early, that six months is coming due for a lot of people just as we enter winter and everyone’s indoors. And this winter, it looks like the UK will have trouble keeping the heating on.

We could be deep in the shit; this is not the time to let down our guard.
