In my opinion, people who wonít get the vaccine for no good reason, as in ďthey donít want to,Ē are being arrogant.  No oneís inconvenience takes precedence over othersí very lives.  I just donít understand that mentality.

Realistically this happens continuously in this world both on a personal decision basis as well as governmental policy level.

Covid vaccines are more cost/time effective on this front but the reality is, many/most of us could save lives by choosing to donate money/time/resources and choose not to do so.

Losing oneís sense of taste might not even be too bad.  Thereís one person in my province who has said that everything now tastes like sulphur and has lost weight because of it.  Iím sure he would rather taste nothing at all.

A friend of a friend had Covid and lost her sense of smell and taste.  She has burned food repeatedly and almost set the kitchen on fire twice, and can't tell when food is going "off".  These senses are important.
