We're going to see posts like this all over the media. These will be going on everywhere all across the country. Get over the outrage, because it will make no difference. People will go out on this holiday weekend. Governors knew that they would, so they opened up, despite their best instincts. There is no way people are going to stay at home, and no " stay at home" order will stop it, unless there is strict enforcement, which is impossible. So, we don't need numerous posts with fake outrage ( of course it's in ______; those people are assholes). You knew this was inevitable, so stay at home if you want to avoid it. We will pay over the next few weeks, but there is nothing anyone could do about it.

It's also not nearly as nice a day. HOWEVER, maybe those people who had cabin fever just had to get out for a day and got it a bit out of their system. Of course, what they might have gotten into their system is a different story.

I just clicked on your link, R51, and watched as a woman walking toward the camera came within inches of two people walking in the opposite direction (she had to step to the side to avoid walking right into them; so no, they were not together), with the woman's facemask visibly pulled down to under her chin. I don't know if the couple walking away had masks on or not, but the upshot is that if one of the three of them are COVID-19+, the odds are about 1 in 5 that at least one of the other two is now positive as well.

Other people were similarly within close proximity; it doesn't take getting out a measuring tape or calculating the distance by examining the street features in comparison to see that few people in the camera's view were practicing anything close to social distancing.

What gets me is that if the crowd is any indication, the weather is not pleasant on the boardwalk this afternoon. They're bundled up and wearing hoodies. I could understand it slightly more if it was brilliantly sunny and warm, but what's the point of going to the beach — at the height of the pandemic — if it's not? Merely to go outside? Jesus, go stand in the middle of your street, the park, even the vacant lot down the road if you've succumbed to cabin fever. You really don't need to risk your health, let alone everyone else's, just to get out of the house.

Enforced lockdowns for everyone were to prevent the vulnerable. I have been abiding by lockdown myself, but if you’re a fit and healthy person under the age of 50 (and probably more like 70 but let’s pitch it lower), then your risk of serious health issues or death is extremely low.

If you’re not living with or visiting elderly / already sick relatives or friends, then people screaming how you might pass it on to someone vulnerable, probably isn’t going to land.

Patriotism in the US is currently very sick and on a ventilator. It was more obvious when I was young that we not only looked out for ourselves, but others around us, even strangers. The repercussions thoughtless people can initiate can affect people far and wide, especially to the doctors and nurses who become involved in saving sick people's lives. Some of us, more deep down than others, realize the seriousness of going out and having fun, thinking only of their selves, and not others in the community. Pointing out people who go against warnings and common sense is really a great idea to keep us informed of what we may encounter going out, and reinforce the warnings to ourselves, lest we become too relaxed.

The yes...the lockdown did flatten the curve in the NY metro area. It did what it was meant to do, which was to flatten the curve so NY (and the country) could reopen. It was not something to exist in perpetuity. It was always understood there would be cases of covid once the country reopened as flattening the curve was meant to spead out covid cases over time.

Somewhere along the line people went to two different extremenes: one group refuses to practice social distancing and the other refuses to allow people to live the new normal.

You are such a dumb cunt I can't even fathom the depths of your stupidity and willingness to infect and kill the people in your community and every other community. Dumb cunt doesn't even come close to describing the maggots eating at your brain.

Hundreds of innocent Americans died of Covid-19 today, and yesterday, and the day before that and the day before that. Hundreds more will die tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that. We'll get spikes from those morons running around without masks or social distancing like dumb cunts.

It's still contagious. We still don't have adequate PPE. We still don't have adequate Testing. We still don't have adequate treatments.

It is not “complete and utter bullshit” that the risk for healthy young adults is extremely low and when you cite individual exceptional deaths rather than stats, then you prove the point. We can all cite exceptional cases.

The pattern has been repeated all over the world wherever the virus has been seen. Referring to the statistical outliers this does not change the fact.

This does not mean a person should be complacent or that the virus isn’t awful, but it does mean that some people are taking calculated risks, like they do every time they get in a car.

Full disclosure, I have had and recovered from suspected COVID-19. It was an extremely unpleasant bug, the fever in particular was like nothing I have previously experienced and the cough lasted weeks, the sore throat was terrible. As unpleasant as it was, I don’t think most people are going to put their entire lives on hold indefinitely to avoid that level of illness (which is all it will be if not less for 95%+) and the lockdown will not hold much longer. The focus should be on protecting the most vulnerable.

R125, the reason to lock down and "Flatten the curve" was not so we could re-open. It was to prevent medical services from being overwhelmed.

Further, that time was supposed to be used to get universal testing & contact-tracing in place, while businesses (with govt assistance) reworked to make it safer for people to be in them (social distancing, plastic barriers, contactless functioning and payment).


It's adamantly NOT safe to re-open unless all that stuff that didn't happen happens.

We're going to see a second wave that makes everything we've experienced so far seem like a walk in the park.

by Anonymousreply 13805/25/2020

R137, are you idiots really that stupid?

Democrats live in big cities with higher population densities. Your idiotic post is just another "correlation is not causation" logical fallacy.

Further, it's the rural areas that are experiencing the biggest issues right now. It doesn't take much to overwhelm small rural hospitals (especially given the GOP has forced many of them to close by refusing to expand Medicaid under the ACA).

Go fuck yourself for trying to politicize this even further, dumbass.

Covid-19 has killed more than twice as many Americans in less than 3 months, than the Vietnam War did over the course of 20 years.

I don't think anyone is dismissing it. But I also think you need to take into account the demographics of all of those lives lost. I'm not saying that anyone one life is any more or less important than any other. But I do think you need to take that into consideration. Some of you are closing in on the hysteria stage with this thing and you're just the flip side of those liberate/open up morons. There is a happy middle ground.

What R138 said. We completely shut down for two months and the federal government did nothing during that time. Precious time was wasted while our leader, the orange blob, held daily rallies/press conferences that were a waste of time, telling us to drink bleach, shove a flashlight up our asses, or take hydroxychloroquine. "What have you got to lose???"

Now we're flinging open the doors to everything in most states. What could possibly go wrong??? But because a few posters on here claim to have had the virus and recovered, it's no big deal. Don't be fooled by what they say, be safe and use common sense. The least you can do is wear a fucking mask in public and practice social distancing.

The Atlantic: America’s Patchwork Pandemic Is Fraying Even Further

The coronavirus is coursing through different parts of the U.S. in different ways, making the crisis harder to predict, control, or understand.

Prevention is physically rewarding in the long term, but not emotionally rewarding in the short term. People who stay home won’t feel a pleasant dopamine kick from their continued health. Those who flock together will feel hugs and sunshine. The former will be tempted to join the latter. The media could heighten that temptation by offering “disparity in spectacle.” Fringe exceptions like anti-lockdown protests and packed restaurants, she says, are more dramatic and telegenic than people responsibly staying at home, and so more likely to be covered. The risk is that rare acts of incaution will seem like normal behavior.

[quote]The shutdown was never meant to continue in perpetuity.

Anyone thinking the shutdown would last only two weeks was a moron. And yes, it shouldn't continue in perpetuity, but unless and until there's universal testing and contact tracing, and businesses and public spaces are retooled for social distancing, and everyone agrees to wear a mask when in public around other people... it is the ONLY option. The fact that all that time was SQUANDERED by Trump and Republicans is the reason this is dragging on, and the reason so many are dead, and so many more will get sick and die.

R147, it didn't happen anywhere in the United States. You're a lying moron. Fuck off.
