You're only immortal as long as you survive. (Geddy Lee said that.)
If I was dead I wouldn't be worried about supermarket queues or the ban on recreational use of public transport - to name just two.

We have people brave or stupid or desperate enough to ride the buses here. I've been lucky and got rides.

The supermarket experience here goes between scary where young people walk through fast and violate distancing, they're too young to wait for room to clear. In another part of town people are careful and moving through the grocery store is a matter of waiting for a space to clear so you can move in to see what's in reach or moving just to clear space for someone else. .... and then I remembered those sliding tile magic square games from the 60's where one tile is missing and the object was to arrange the tiles, making the shopping experience unreal rather than scary.

We are working out the new normal(s) as a species, and we're slow off the mark. For decades now there have been worse and worse super-resistant bugs showing up at hospitals. With over 7 billion people, places are being poked into that had not been before. Have they ended Ebola in West Africa yet? No.
The new normal has to be epidemic-resistant and might, just might reduce the unthinking herd mentality especially after so many of those practicing it now will be catching it.

If Trumpet was a relative he would be the one you never invite to anything for fear of a fight and cops getting involved.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

Do you mean we will have to put up with this sh*t for ever?

This is part of overpopulation, amplified by the changes of warming.

If people could be smart about it, the next demic like this will not be spread-aided by pre-COVID practices.

But IMO if people overall could be smart we wouldn't be in this situation. It would have been isolated last month if not sooner.

Every time I read about a minority getting the worst of of here, Trump does more to incite the spread.

So.... the second wave in America, to give credit where it's due I call it The Trump Fever.

Next time there is a new disease outbreak the country where it starts should be supported and financially rewarded to confine it there.

It would have been a great bargain if Britain could have paid £20billion to China to keep Covid-19 in China until it died out.

Yea lets see how that works in today's reality !
And the new spammers go on the offensive with...

Please send 20 billion my village has xyz disease or I will come on a plane to your country and not wear a mask.

Coyotes invaded my home state and for a while there was a $75-a-head bounty until they caught guys raising coyotes, like a money tree only quicker.

Very similar story recently about farmers being paid a bounty to plant new trees, so they were clearing old forests to plant new trees.
Or the Leakeys in Kenya looking for ancient human fossils, offered a shilling for each fragment, so the local kids were breaking up large fossils to create more fragments...
Please don't PM technical questions - post them on the forum, then everyone benefits/suffers equally

Reminds me of a story about an AI flying a damaged spaceship with one human occupant;

Human: Can you regain directional control and get us into orbit?
AI: I would prefer to attempt a controlled landing.
Human: I can live with that.
AI: You also wish the landing to be survivable for you?

@CB: He's not from around these parts.

@Larry: They are a group of "never Trump Republicans" who have been running very effective political ads against the  President. The membership includes George Conway, the husband of Trump mouthpiece Kelly Ann Conway. Like (Bill Clinton adviser) James Carville and (Bush's) Marilee Matlynn(sp?), I just don't get those couples!
What, I need to say something else too?
