It's less about the economy and more about normal life. Unfortunately our reliance on economic activity is great.The reason people are asking you to increase your likelihood of catching the virus is to help out the economy, although they won't announce it in such dangerous terms.
That reminds me of this joke: https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/threads/bad-joke-appreciation-corner.72732/page-14#post-1251564
I considered not testing the vaccinated as an alternative explanation for reduced cases & deaths in the UK but excess deaths are down too.
Naming it that is such blatant scare mongering. Someone's got an agenda.“Indian Variant”
... weather's good and pubs are open. I'll bet most those people are vaccinated anyway.More than 100000 people protest in London
The morons really should be wearing masks at the very least...More than 100000 people protest in London:
and many more...
Of course The WHO doesn’t call it the “Indian” variant; just like it doesn’t call other variants the “Chinese”/“English”/“South African” etc. variants because they use the alphanumeric sequence identifiers, which is far more academic.B.1.617 variant <> “Indian Variant”
Several media reports have covered the news of World Health Organisation (WHO) classifying B.1.617 apib.gov.in

Situation in India I found interesting:
Growing resistance towards COVID vaccination turns violent in rural MP. Team led woman tehsildar for vaccination awareness in Ujjain district's Malikhedi village attacked by Pardi caste people. A team member sustained head injury.
The Pardhi are a rather unusual people in comparison the surrounding Bhil tribes. Because of their refusal to become a part of the caste system, they are a predominantly isolated group. They prefer hunting, begging, or even stealing for a living, rather than submitting to a social system that they consider demeaning and degrading.
I kinda see why they give such a statement. Because how am I going to verify that cheap UV lamp is only irradiating in that save nm range. And then, at which intensity should it be, and for how long? Should I open up my fingers and what about creases in the skin?I would argue that The WHO is not academic enough because, for example, in its section on “Mythbusting”, it says this of UV Lamps
FACT: Ultra-violet (UV) lamps should NOT be used to disinfect hands or other areas of your skinUV radiation can cause skin irritation and damage your eyes.
Cleaning your hands with alcohol-based hand rub or washing your hands with soap and water are the most effective ways to remove the virus.”
Which selectively omits the research into Far UV-C (FUVC) wavelengths between 207 - 222nm that have been shown to not be able to penetrate the skin or the cornea (and thus not cause people damage externally) but that they still deactivate virus, bacteria and fungi, permanently.
Other recent studies showed that there are some fungi that are highly resistant to UV even in the vacuum of Space so there are propositions to use it as shielding for future Space missions.
I wonder if the reason to reject working solutions is to actively push the their own solution for some unknown reason, or that's is just ignorance that causes this focus on their own solution.I kinda see why they give such a statement.

So that method will only work in a controlled environment.
Then again, they do not warn about some alcohol-based hand rubs that contain poisons that can penetrate your skin and silently cause harm.
That also is a possibility. The sponsors want to promote their soap/alcohol industries and lobby for that.I wonder if the reason to reject working solutions is to actively push the their own solution for some unknown reason, or that's is just ignorance that causes this focus on their own solution.
That ignorant focus maybe it's this social-media trend to push topics into two buckets, and if someone states a fact that is not in their bucket it must be the opposing 'wrong' bucket. Not taking into account problems are usually multi-dimensional.
