We are hopefully entering our last wave where we are still a bit on our back foot. The future of this pandemic will be less chaotic, more science based and easier to manage. We need to be cautious, but not paranoid. As I mentioned earlier, most people will get exposed to Omicron, it’s almost inevitable…and getting it does not mean you did something wrong..it means you’re a human in the petri-dish of 21st century life. The good news is that human ingenuity has developed effective vaccines and we are in the precipice of viral treatments. And not that we want more variants, but this might be the one that has the characteristics that provide an offramp to this two year shit-show of uncertainty.
