Somewhat delayed response here...

We now know that covid isn't like ebola, where exposing someone to it is
basically manslaughter. So violence in enforcing mandates is excessive and
unnecessary. As is violence in opposing mandates.

So when the next pandemic comes along, how do we decide which
countermeasures make sense and which are government overreach? Especially
when little is known about the pathogen?
