Thankfully, Sweden and Holland are taking a different path. Then we'll have two paths to compare when the dust finally settles. Maybe we'll learn something useful for next time.
In May 2019, I caught a flu of some kind. Not hospitalized, but I was down for a month. And I didn't regain my energy until two months later. In my younger days, it was much easier to bounce back from the flu.
So I'm scared of this Covid-19. My next flu is likely to be hard on me. So I'm practicing your "pointless hygiene theatre" in a practical manner. I see it as reducing my risk.
But in the end, everyone of us is probaly going to get it--and our bodies will respond accordingly.
