Republicans pretending 1 million deaths didn’t happen, and everybody else just losing their minds.

Say the average person who died from COVID-19 was 50 years old and lost about 25 years of life, that 25 million years of lost potential. By comparison the US population is about 360 million, and effectively lost a year of our lives from 2020 through 2021, thats 360 million years of lost potential. Which was worse in the grand scheme of things?

Still the dead, because they'll never get to experience anything ever again.

You spent a year doing indoor things, baking bread and hanging out with friends on zoom instead of at a bar...

Why are you comparing the two numbers? You're acting like everything would be normal despite a global pandemic if only the government did not do anything.

Yes but realistically high tens if not hundreds of millions suffered mental health consequences.
