Lapp: “There’s three things the Amish don’t like. And that’s government— they won’t get involved in the government, they don’t like the public education system— they won’t send their children to education, and they also don’t like the health system. They rip us off. Those are three things that we feel like we’re fighting against all the time. Well, those three things are all part of what Covid is.”
Lapp says they weren’t denying coronavirus, they were facing it head on.
Nolt: I know of some cases in which Amish people refused to go to the hospital, even when they were very sick because if they went there, they wouldn’t be able to have visitors. And it was more important to be sick, even very sick at home and have the ability to have some people around you than to go to the hospital and be isolated.
Then, last March, remarkable news. The Lancaster County Amish were reported to be the first community to achieve “herd immunity,” meaning a large part of a population had been infected with Covid-19 and became immune.
One thing’s clear: there’s no evidence of any more deaths among the Amish than in places that shut down tight— some claim there were fewer here. That’s without masking, staying at home, or another important measure.
By staying open, the Amish here have one tangible 2020 accomplishment few others can claim.
I love it when the little guy wins.
The Amish, like Sweden, and parts of India, defied what corrupt public health officials have tyrannically mandated and not only lived to tell the tale, but thrived beyond all the nay-sayer’s expectations.
