When will discrimination against superspreaders arrive?
Garett Jones emails me:
How soon until superspreader discrimination studies becomes an academic field? Is it already, on a Straussian level?
Will employment discrimination law react quickly or slowly?
IIRC after 9/11 it took about a year for the left to start bringing up serious concerns about detainee treatment.
Perhaps social media and the naturally greater sympathy people may have toward probabilistic superspreaders will encourage a faster response to the injustice of treating people differently on the basis of personal E(R0 | Covid +).
This will shape the medium-term spread of Covid if it hasn’t already.
