Why do lockdowns and pandemic restrictions continue to exist?
It seems to me that people have by and large forgotten what these endless lockdowns and restrictions are actually for.
The lockdowns were never expected or even intended to eradicate the disease itself. They're quite simply about preventing the collapse of the healthcare system. The closer a province's ICUs are to capacity, the stricter the lockdown, regardless of where any particular government is on the spectrum.
Unvaccinated people are vastly disproportionate users of ICUs in this pandemic and are therefore directly responsible for the continued severity of the restrictions. It's ironic that those protesting are most responsible for the continuing conditions that they protest.
Personal freedom over collective responsibility has reached its logical conclusion.
