Parts of America still demand that kids and vaccinated adults wear masks, even outdoors. Australia and China enforce even more tyrannical lockdowns. But now that vaccines protect most of us from serious Covid reactions, continuing such mandates is cruel.

Denmark realizes that. They recently ended ALL their Covid restrictions.
"Go Denmark. We in the United States should do the same," Economist Don Boudreaux says. The costs of restrictions now dramatically outweigh the benefits.
"We reduced COVID, through vaccination, to a fairly mild ailment," Boudreaux tells me. "We don’t have to continue to upend human life in our quest to eliminate COVID, which can’t happen anyway."
Covid is unlikely to ever go away. Even if all humans became free of Covid, Boudreaux points out, the virus can still live in animals. Humanity has never eradicated a virus that can live in both animals and humans.
As Denmark and other Europeans countries show, normal life can go on. Let people LIVE.
