    I thought the exact same way you did, the statistics are in our favor, till you in that 2%, then you die alone in a hospital bed unable to breathe on your own, your family doesn't get closure by being able to say goodbye.

    Statistically you have a higher risk of dieing in a car accident vs covid, but you wear a seat belt in the car don't you to reduce the risk? The shot is your seat belt.
    I'm sorry to hear.

    You're right, it's easy until you or someone close to you becomes a statistic. However, I'd like to add something more to the conversation. Covid isn't just about living or dying, I mean I'm not going to harp on about the social, human, economic and political effects - that's not my field - but we see real morbidity in the long term as well, something that the statistics don't really talk about (unless you go looking for it). I'll mention a few

    1) New high blood pressure - increasing your chance of developing chronic kidney disease, stroke, heart attacks and failure, etc.
    2) New diabetes - interesting fact, but for someone who has diabetes they have the same risk of getting a heart attack in the future as somebody who's had a heart attack before (but without diabetes)
    3) Acute kidney injury which could lead to chronic kidney disease
    4) Permanent lung scarring which may or may not be progressive, time will tell
    5) Permanent hearing loss

    These are just some of the things that aren't death, but can have a huge impact on your quality of life. These things aren't uncommon.

    My best friend was still on the fence about it last week, but sent me pictures from the Discovery Sandton vaccination site yesterday.

    Turns out his company is making it mandatory so he went for it. He already got COVID in July so he's gonna have a ton of antibodies now after his two Pfizer doses are done lol.
