I was supposed to see a guy I worked with over 30 years ago. We were going to meet for coffee. He called me apologizing that he had to cancel our meeting. His wife did not want him to see me because I was not vaccinated.
“Gary,” he said, “I really want to meet, but she told me that I would have to sleep on the couch with no contact with her for two weeks if I saw you.”
He said that his wife is constantly wiping surfaces and doorknobs with a disinfectant. “As soon as I finish touching something, she is wiping it,” he said. “And even if I don’t touch something, she wipes it.”
I know a few men whose wives are terrified of getting the virus. These wives made sure their husbands were vaccinated. (Vaccinated with the vaccine that does not stop the spread of the virus.) The husbands got vaccinated not because they wanted to, but to stop the nagging. And these wives will not allow their husbands to see unvaccinated people.
For now, it is telephone contact only for these men. Of course, that could change. Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, could announce, “Don’t talk to the unvaccinated on the telephone. Their germs could travel through the telephone and infect you.”
Is it more ridiculous than the belief a mask will stop microscopic germs?
Is it more ridiculous than the belief that airborne germs will travel no further than 2 meters or 6 feet?
Is it more ridiculous than the belief that you can stop a virus from spreading by vaccinating everyone with a vaccine that does stop the virus from spreading?
