Is getting Covid-19 inevitable?

I have avoided it thus far, but I’m thinking that it is probably going to be around for a long time and I will almost certainly get it at some point.

What do you think? Is it only a matter of time? Or do you think that we have a chance of squashing this virus sometime before we all suffer with it?

I think we can have a good outcome in the U.S. if enough people get vaccinated.

If it is inevitable, I worry about some of the older people in my family who have not gotten it yet.

I dont know…hopefully it becomes less severe over time and becomes more like the annual flu…some people cant handle it. I think I had it in 2020 but there weren’t tests yet so I’ll never know if I had covid or not. I felt wiped out, slept it off, no one caught it from me.

But since it became so contagious it started evolving so now its worse variants or thats what I read. Im scared to go to the hospital. I’ve gotten three doses of the vaccine so far I still wear a mask in crowds even with three doses of the vaccine…I have a bit of a sore throat and cold but I dont want to be tested for covid because Im scared that I’ll be murdered in the hospital.

I think my paranoia plays into it–but people without paranoid schizophrenia are saying crazy stuff about it. Maybe paranoia is more common to the public than just a mental illness? Well, schizophrenia is different–paranoia is just one aspect of it. However my paranoia had been gone until the pandemic now my mental health has gotten worse…I was planning to go back to school and do so much.

Had a great weekend tho went to NYC and although mostly spent time outside; still wore masks in stores etc. it was really nice to be around people and to visit NYC when its starting to get back to somewhat normal or like the before-times.

I heard one doctor/expert on TV say it pretty much was inevitable that most people will get it. Get vaxxed and you should be okay in most cases.
