“yes I’ve already said to my children, the best thing for you is just to get it, get it over and done with because a pandemic might be back in a far more virulent form and I’m worried in case it comes back in the form which affects children. Currently it’s not, but you know viruses evolve, they currently don’t have the the key to the lock to get into the cells of young children”

Disclaimer: My interest is a broader public discourse. I am fully confident that mainstream media has been misleading, deceptive and at times, spread misinformation regarding SARS-CoV-2 / COVID19. This has been compounded by Big Tech censorship and their “fact checkers” who are more akin to “thought police”. Unless stated otherwise, Sharing ≠ Endorsement. Broad public discourse is (was?) part of a normal scientific and political process in a modern democratic society.
