The chances for not getting COVID in the US is 94% per CDC website for week ending Oct 10. Depending on how you look at it, 6% could be nothing to sneeze at.

Re: personhood

I'm just slightly curious why you seem to be such an exception, that's all. Do you suppose that if I question somebody else's moral framework it has to imply that I don't believe in morality at all myself? Why would you think that? It's nowhere near logical.
