Imagine if we have to wait for a vaccine development like the one for HIV - it doesn’t exist yet, for almost 40 years...
True enough, but in most circumstances you couldn’t easily spread HIV at a gig and we learned fairly early on how to avoid transmitting the virus once you knew you had it, or how to take precautions to avoid becoming infected. We now also have very effective treatments that keep those infected alive. A very effective treatment for this virus would probably be a viable alternative to a vaccine, of course.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m as keen as you for a solution that allows for gigs. For one, I care greatly about live music. For two, I’d like to go back to work and start earning money again.
You stay safe too.
