The Covid Queue

The Covid Queue
Been listening to NPR and they keep bringing up different groups that should get the vaccine first.

Medical personel
First Responders
Teachers
Nursing homes
The homeless
Ect....



But - if you want to stop the spread - shouldn't prostitutes be up high on the list?

...

Go figure..

No.

There are an estimated one million prostitutes in the US, servicing an average of 3 clients per day.

There are roughly 18 million healthcare workers in the US, coming in contact with an average of 14 people per day.

So, with 5 million exposures vs 250 million exposures, I’d say vaccinating sex workers isn’t a top priority.

Would it be a bottom priority?

Months ago Fox Noise and republicans were pointing to Sweden's "herd immunity" tactic to justify keeping everything open with no restrictions. Sweden paid dearly for their stupidity and their death rate has skyrocketed and even their PM has admitted the tactic was a mistake. Their hospitals are at max.

Yeah - well how many of those health care workers have some stranger's junk in their mouth and how many hookers are wearing face masks?

When the potential infection rate is 50 times higher, I'm not at all sure it matters.

Some people are complaining that US political leaders - many of whom railed against the pandemic, called it a 'hoax', slow-tracked assistance, re-opened too early, etc - are getting their COVID vaccines before healthcare workers, the elderly, and other people at high risk.

I think politicians should have gotten these shots very early on.  After all, you need test subjects who can be easily replaced.
