Benefits of current vaccines: partial prevention of symptomatic Covid, lessen its severity, avoid overwhelming of ICUs. Drawbacks: do not prevent Covid infection, transmission, or masking. From MSN "news", 18 March 2021: ""COVID-19 patients who went to the hospital and were given aspirin within 24 hours of their admission or in the seven days before were less likely to need to go on a ventilator, spend time in the intensive care unit, or die from the virus." What's better: treatment or vaccine?
