RE: Epidemics Past and Present: Polio and COVID-19

in StemSocial2 years ago

Just as there are people today who doubt the efficacy of social distancing and mask wearing, there were people in past polio epidemics who doubted public health efforts to address the situation.

This is why it's so important to know about history - it always repeats. You would think that we would have learned from our mistakes by know, I hope that someday we will.
Amazing article, I know you didn't have a choice, but I still want to thank you for your role on the vaccine tests, how it must feel to be part of something so important for recent human history!

Thank you so much for that kind and thoughtful comment. I must admit I didn't enjoy the vaccination 😅. I was in the first grade and had never received an injection before. In those days, we didn't go to the doctor so much but toughed out all the childhood illnesses.
I do love history and agree with you, it teaches us.
I wish you and your family a peaceful and healthful day.
Regards,
