# COVID, COVID, COVID

Even though Covid-$\infty$ is going to be with us forever, I actually think on the whole the pandemic turned out better than expected, and I mean that in the technical sense. If we were to rerun the pandemic over and over again, I think our universe will end up with fewer deaths than average. That is not to say we haven’t done anything wrong. We’ve botched up many things of course but given that the human default state is incompetence, we botched less than we could have.
