Exactly.
People seem surprised that keeping kids in a bubble for two years, resulted in the inability of their immune systems to fight off illness they otherwise would have.
Is different than…
CDC:
”You know, in the previous years, atypical presentations of atypical seasons, due to mitigation against COVID. left a large swath of the United States population uninfected. So we’re seeing more RSV because in the last past two years, we’ve not seen infections in children as we have previously. And so these children, if you will, need to become infected to move forward because it’s a disease very common in children.”

As a guy with a 3 month old. Rsv is the scary one, then the flu, then covid. Our daughter came home with covid and her Dr openly said we should be thankful it wasn't rsv. The I ly bitch if covid is if your company still has the dumb covid restrictions in place.

Stupid ****s, lmao - Monday morning quarterbacking is for idiots.
It's actually called an after action report, and it is required after major events, so that people can learn from what went well, and what didn't.

JHU issues a long overdue mea culpa for their overreaction to a viral bug, which is what they should do.

But if clinging to the hype & hysteria is your way to cope then good on you.

One million deaths and people are still blaming health officials and science for putting human lives first during a deadly pandemic. ****ing lockdowns, lol.

No study is going to tell conspiracy theorists what did or didn't go well - everyone knows misinformation didn't go well, yet here we are studying how sane people reacted.

Pssst... deadly contagions hype themselves. Had death not been an obvious consequence then the use of words like hype and hysteria would be perfectly acceptable.

It's easy to say overreaction after the fact.

No its not. Our economy, permanent business closures, and test scores would vehemently disagree with you.

Yep our "lockdown" was really the reason our economy suffered..not the staggering amount of illness and death
You aren’t serious are you? Those that died from Covid were mostly old, sick, retired people. Net ‘takers’ in the big picture. As opposed to businesses that generate money, support families, and benefit their community.

All of those suffered due to disrespect for social distancing/mask guidelines by right wingers who were indoctrinated to downplay Covid 19 just like Trump did.
