kitten corner

i am just a kitten and we are only on unit 2 of algebra, so please forgive me if this is a silly question, but

if you have taken a vaccine that is 95-97% effective

against a disease that has a 99.9%+ survival rate in healthy people

and has only 0.7% secondary attack rate from asymptomatic carriers that live in your house

and still feel a need to distance, wear masks, and avoid gatherings to “protect yourself”

mightn’t this just mean that you’re not very good at assessing risk/probability?

because i don’t think you’d probably pass “intro to kitten quadratics” doing math like that.

you can cheat off my test if you need to.
