Just nonsense. Doing the same thing again, and again, and again. Expecting a different result every time, madness. Covid waves come and go over all countries no matter what their lockdown/ mask/ opening a window status is. Anyway what I or you think is irrelevant people have had enough and moved on.
This is plainly false - there have not been large waves in Japan or Australia due to high uptake and mask protocols. Given Japan’s population density and use of public transportation, you’d expect a situation more like Italy or Germany.
There is a large wave in Australia right at the very moment and mask protocols have been abandoned. Unvaccinated people now also have nearly complete freedoms too. In my state anyhow. The case numbers are increasing rapidly per day.
Important is to stick with measures like wearing masks, appropriate distancing and use check in measures so if there is a positive case then contact tracing can happen easily enough and those contacts can isolate until they are recovered. And use lockdowns if necessary to avoid hospitals being overwhelmed.
Sorry lock-downs don't work. The world was locked down last year at this time. And yet, hospitalizations and deaths were soaaring as well. It is no use to make vaccinated people sit at home.
Wear a mask. Try to avoid huge crowds. Stay home, and get tested if you are ill. Get vaccinated. Take care of yourself. Sorry, but the day and age where locking everyone down is long gone.
Kids need to go to school. People need to meet their friends/families. Businesses need to make money.
