Thật điên rồ
bắt học sinh đeo khẩu trang khi ngồi học, xong vẫn ở phòng đó lại bỏ khẩu trang, nằm cạnh nhau khi ngủ...
Vinay Prasad exposes the madness – and the inevitable results – of what colleges are doing to their students in the name of fighting Covid-19. Two slices:
Category 3 (useless, virtue signaling theater) is the most common. Wearing your mask when you enter a restaurant and walk to your table, but not when you sit there for two hours laughing and drinking is one example. The fact this policy exists reflects serious impairment in thinking and total failure of policy makers.
Making a 2-4 year old wear a cloth mask in day care (which the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against the advice of the World Health Organization), but, of course, kids take the cloth mask off to nap next to each other for 4 hours in the same room! Theater (rạp hát, diễn kịch).
Closing beaches and other outdoor activities. Wearing a mask outside. The list goes on and on, and most things we did fit in this category. On a side note: Here we review all data on masking.
Truly, I can’t even understand how anyone thinks these policies are justified. I am also surprised college students have accepted them with scant (ít ỏi) protest (biểu tình). I can only surmise (phỏng đoán, ước đoán, ngờ ngợ) that many have been mislead into thinking this sacrifice serves a broader interest (i.e. believe they are being altruistic), or that the incentives on their lives and career for conformity are so great they are afraid to speak up.
I suspect the strong link between restrictions (hạn chế) and political party (đảng chính trị) may also affect them. After all, the youth most strongly leans left (full disclosure: as do it!), and thus adheres to the identify badges of the left (but in my case, sadly, I spent too many years studying & publishing on scientific evidence to turn my brain off).
In short, draconian restrictions on vaccinated young people or those with natural immunity living in tiny pockets of college campus makes no sense, and is a policy that contributes to a harm in societal well-being. The policy is unethical and illogical.
To young people: I am personally sorry that those of us who recognized the futility and harm of these policies could not have done more to shield you from the anxieties and risk aversion of the irrational.
