  1. What is the fascination this news organ has with Covid? Are it’s readers so old and close to death that it’s a major news item.
    Covid has been and gone and most folk want to get back to leading a normal life.

  2. I have rarely read such an ill-informed reply to an article.
    Covid has not “been and gone”, it is still very much present, it still very much affects societies around the globe, it continues to change and mutate… and we are still not much closer to the development of a Pan-Cov vaccine which we could be in need of earlier than some expect. There is a reason why the WHO is currently monitoring other Coronaviruses too (the keyword here is recombination). Also, the WHO (as well as other organisations) with presumably more expertise than a Mr Sharp have repeatedly warned that ignoring Sars-Cov2 and abandoning surveillance is not a sensible move.

    I do not think that readers are so old and close to death (that statement of yours could well be interpreted as being somewhat discriminatory because of the underlying suggestion).
    I would suggest that you go on and lead your normal life, and frankly, I personally could not care less what risks you take and what consequences this might have for yourself, because this is your decision.
    But since you do not respect that others (including many readers) see things differently, I would suggest that you simply refrain from reading articles with a Covid headline if this topic is of no interest for you.
