Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Unified political leadership that has the good sense to avoid politicizing the issue can, I imagine, make a difference. It's harder to denialism to take root if everybody on all sides of the political spectrum works hard to shame and denounce it in every situation.

But if one side takes up virus denialism, then any sort of effective response becomes impossible. People don't like social distancing, and they really don't like lockdowns. They don't like closed schools. If one side tells them that they can have all the candy with no consequences ... well ... a lot of people are going to believe what they want to believe.
