BREAKING HYPERURGENT NEWS: Prof. Dr. Bob Wachter, Deranged UCSF Dept. of Medicine Chair, Announces He's Ready to Resume Indoor Dining and Go Unmasked During "Small Group Gatherings"
In Day 1038 of his bizarre Covid Chronicles, the good doctor further insists that he'll mask in public basically forever, and also on flights, except to eat meals, because Covid is less dangerous then
I’m working on a longer piece for tomorrow, but in the meantime, perhaps you’ll find the latest installment of Bob Wachter’s profoundly ridiculous Covid Chronicles amusing.
Remember as you read it that Dr. Wachter is a heavily decorated, leading academic:
He believes case rates are still even remotely meaningful:
I’m reasonably sure that semi-professional Covid botherers like Eric Feigl-Ding are doing a bit, but I fear Prof. Dr. Wachter has just totally lost his mind:
He’s going to be masking in public literally until he dies:
In coming years, lingering hysteroids like Wachter will form their own class of socially obnoxious, demanding people – sort of like vegans, but massively worse, because they’ll never let you close the windows.
We have to make masking socially unacceptable. I'm thinking of posters outside the grocery that look official and say: "Afraid to take off the mask?" and then refers to local mental health provider w/ phone number. Maybe a strategy for springtime when everyone feels more confident.
"3) I'm fully vaxxed and had bivalent in Sept"
Red flag warning-- got the good 'ole 8 mouse bivalent the second it was available. In the future, this should be used as a way to disqualify people from any serious position.
Also, putting (n=x) in your tweet about social gatherings is a sure mark of a brilliant scientist and makes anything you write at least 332.55% more sciency.
