It reminds me of conservative climate change bashing. An element of pig-headedness because the ‘other side’ has embraced it.
I’ve seen liberals scoff by saying “It spreads through bodily fluids, not the air so stop worrying.”
Oh, like…‘sweat’? Sure, how could my kid possibly catch that at a school? Or ‘vomit’. So if my kid throws up, am I just going to leave it on the floor?
My point is, I think there’s a non-zero chance of this becoming a serious problem and I don’t see the point in bashing it.
