Covid-19’s big public health lesson: Ask people to be careful, not perfect (Vox)

Vox: Covid-19’s big public health lesson: Ask people to be careful, not perfect. “For too long, America has approached public health issues with puritanical, black-and-white approaches. Whether it’s an abstinence-only approach for teen sex and HIV/AIDS, or refusing to provide clean needles and overdose antidotes to people who use drugs, the country has a tendency to prefer the perfect but unrealistic over the better and pragmatic. The US repeated those mistakes again with the Covid-19 pandemic.”
