That's one perspective
It's the correct perspective. It's a fundamental matter of logic that things mutate less when they replicate less.
The virus is now endemic in almost every country. Time for prevention has passed.
I never said anything about preventing it from entering countries. What we can (and should) prevent is more people from catching the virus.
Not if they have effectively social distances.
Which is why it has been so strongly advised. It obviously isn't fixing everything on its own, though. There are scenarios where it simply isn't practical to stay 2 meters apart from everyone else at all times.
Besides if there was an over the counter covid treatment people would take it and stay home.
By the time people show symptoms, they have exposed themselves to others
And the vaccines as Fauci has been pointing out wont prevent transmission and so he is saying vaccinated people still have to social distance and wear masks.
When you brought this up elsewhere, I posted a link that showed that the vaccines do, indeed, reduce the likelihood of transmission. Did you not read that? When did Dr. Fauci make the statement that you claim he made? What did he say exactly? According to this source: https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2021/mar/08/instagram-posts/misleading-video-suggests-dr-anthony-fauci-said-va/ what Dr. Fauci actually said was that he "wasn't sure" whether the vaccine would prevent infections or not (apparently, he must have made that statement before the studies of viral load in vaccinated people were completed). That has very different implications than your claim that he said it won't prevent transmission.
So unless you can supply a direct quote where Fauci stated that the vaccines won't prevent transmission, cut it out with the misinformation.
