The difference is that with most of those other things you mention people are only directly harming themselves. Turning yourself into a virus factory is different.



### An Omicron virus factory creates herd immunity at a very low cost to others.


Knowingly infecting others without their knowledge with HIV in the 80s was something completely different.


Can you see the difference?











Ja.  a lot of the US legal structure which is making the US government so ineffective in dealing with the current virus evolved in response to HIV forty years ago.  At that time, a number of laws were established by legislatures or confirmed by courts to protect those with or at risk of HIV.  That will be difficult or impossible to undo in response to covid.


But… we don’t hafta mess with it.  This epidemic is probably over.  That Florida data is telling me this nightmare is over.
