    San Francisco was one of the first, or the first city to shut down. So far San Francisco has had 47 deaths. NYC had their first confirmed case around the same time as San Francisco. NYC has had over 22,000 deaths so far. NYC has approximately 10 times as many people as SF, but has had more than 468 times as many deaths. Norway shut down their country and Sweden didn't. There is little difference between the two countries, yet Sweden's death rate so far, is 10 times as higher than Norway's.

    Do facts and evidence mean anything at all to you? Please stop gaslighting and insisting social distancing, wearing masks, and sheltering at home policies don't make a difference when the evidence is overwhelming that they do.

    We've talked about the responses of Trump and NYC ad nauseum earlier in this thread. Instead of restarting the conversation all over again, it might make more sense to for you to go back and respond to what was posted when you complained months ago.

    And with respect to Sweden and Norway, there are plenty of differences and your point is intellectually lazy. Now Sweden fared better than some U.S. states that DID shut down, but not as well as they could have. Why? Because they pulled a reverse NY/NJ/CT policy on nursing homes. While the tristate killed tens of thousands of people simply by sending sick people back to nursing homes, Sweden was not sending them to hospitals to begin with or otherwise isolating them. They have since revised that policy, much like the tristate has stopped sending sick old people back to kill more old people.

    And don't accuse someone of gaslighting just because you're too lazy or emotionally invested to dig into the data. We now know a lot more than we did in mid-February. What I have been supporting is a more targeted approach based upon the science as we currently know it. Thank goodness that saner Governors, like the one in the state in which I reside, have a similar philosophy. What I have also been saying this whole time is that every restriction has a cost, which means that each has to be carefully weighted against the real benefits, as we now understand them, rather than recklessly applied.

    When I wrote those last responses yesterday, my children were outside in the neighborhood playing with a bunch of other children. There were no masks anywhere and there pretty much never have been because it's ridiculous to do that to them outdoors. Even something as simple as that has a cost that includes a never-ending paranoia weighing on their developing psyches. We also don't turn the TV news on any more when they are inside with never-ending coronavirus hyperbole and melodrama. This is not dangerous to them and i won't scar them any more than necessary by making them feel like they live in some alternate reality. They are back in sports, will be in school in the fall (without masks) and will otherwise live normally, as they should.

    ^ Same all around with Florida, including the bars.

    But as we now know this was inevitable. NY, NJ and CT might take a lesson from this in understanding that further destruction of whatever is left of their economies is not going to make it go away. I am thrilled with how this is playing out in FL and I wish we had done it sooner. It's time to protect the high risk and let this damned thing run its course.

    We have locked down the nursing homes and are providing PPE to anyone who requests it through their county health department. Right now our newly infected are young and many are asympomatic. Our mortality rates are in check and our hospitalization rates for the newly infected are relatively low and our capacity has expanded. We also have become better at treating the more severe cases.

    So now that we are ready I hope we keep this going until the worst of the surge subsides naturally. There is no vaccine coming anytime soon, so now it's time to bite the bullet and deal with it.

    I blocked Rick a long time ago. I would suggest the same. People see what they believe and there’s no amount facts that are going to help. I don’t know if people are doing it intentionally or if they are maliciously spreading dangerous falsehoods?

    I’m depressed. No one is doing what they need to do to get this pandemic under control. I hate to spread fear or despair, but I’m really scared what going to happen financially, with my health, with my friends and family.

    The fact of the matter is people won’t change until it’s too late. Until the hospitals are too full and people are being traiaged. It’s scary to think it could get that bad because people won’t do their part for fucks sake. We have this beautiful life and planet and look what we as a species do to it. Sigh. No I’m not fear mongering most people will survive the virus, but the fact is too many people will die in a horrible way. Not to mention we don’t not the long term effects.

    There’s really no sense in going down the rabbit hole of despair. I guess I’ll be grateful for everyday I’m alive and tell my mom I love her more often. Just focus on what I can control. Spend more time in prayer and meditation.

    ...IMHO we have to get over this ridiculous notion that we can somehow "control" or "contain" this thing if only we take drastic enough measures. We can't, just like we couldn't control the Spanish flu or any other highly virulent airborne disease. Heck we still can't even beat the flu or the common cold. Part of this is because we can't control how other people choose to live, at least not for very long. Now maybe if this thing was more deadly than it really is then you could sell more people on ongoing drastic measures, but they can read for themselves...and the realities are becoming increasingly clear.

    Please stop with your gaslighting. There's a lot we can do to control or contain the virus. This isn't theoretical. There are other countries that have been able to do it. New Zealand has had only 22 deaths. Taiwan has had 7. We know what works. There's no way we could have prevented every single death, but we could have prevented many of them. There's no reason for over 128,000 Americans to have died from a preventable disease. We've had more deaths than any other country, and we're in the top ten in number of deaths per million. In most European countries, the number of new cases have plummeted, while we're seeing record numbers.

    All you are doing is making false arguments. We could have controlled the Spanish Flu, but we didn't, because we were fighting a world war. Our army wasn't willing to quarantine soldiers who became sick. American Samoa was able to contain the Spanish Flu. Their governor quarantined every ship that came into their territory. They ended up with zero deaths from it. We're able to contain the flu and keep the number of deaths to a reasonable level. The flu isn't killing hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. Approximately zero Americans die from the common cold.

    You're entitled to your view, but please be honest. You're opposed to doing what is necessary to contain the virus, not because it's not effective, but because you don't want to be inconvenienced.

    I’ve seen quite a few videos of their local leaders getting called out about the rise in cases. They don’t seem to care.

    Florida is just......I’m not going to say any words but......the numbers speak on the common sense of the people (esp the politicians and the law enforcement) there.

    After three weeks of strong comeback, my club and all other non-restaurant clubs in Key West are closed again.

    I'm still trying to figure out how someone who was blocked was able to see and quote what was written. But I slept late (for a vampire ha ha) and haven't had coffee. So I simply edited out the personal parts of the response, after seeing the report--which was NOT made by the person who unsuccessfully blocked the person replying.

    I used to just close, delete, or banish political threads to 'Games and Puzzles', which latter course worked surprisingly well

    But these are very trying times, and this thread has some excellent advice.

    It's bc ppl won't stay the fuck at home! They're more interested in vacations & socializing ,carrying on like normal *eyeroll*

    The reason the other countries had such a better hold on this thing is bc they locked everyone & everything down for a longer time than the US. I am still wearing my mask & distancing from ppl bc I don't trust anyone's wherabouts (despite what they say).

    I get it. People are sick of staying home , whatever get over it. The last thing the US needed to do was reopen everything as if it were completley safe.

    I'm still trying to figure out how someone who was blocked was able to see and quote what was written. But I slept late (for a vampire ha ha) and haven't had coffee. So I simply edited out the personal parts of the response, after seeing the report--which was NOT made by the person who unsuccessfully blocked the person replying.

    I used to just close, delete, or banish political threads to 'Games and Puzzles', which latter course worked surprisingly well

    But these are very trying times, and this thread has some excellent advice.
    ive noticed the people I put on my ignore list can see my post. I can’t see theirs, but they can see mine. I wish they couldn’t see my post.

    Ignore on sw is NOT as good as the block feature on social media.

    When you ignore someone here that person can still read and respond you your posts. I’ve had obsessed trolls responds to my posts like clockwork after I ignore them. Weird n creepy.

    In addition you can still view their posts if you view sw without logging in and if someone you haven’t ignored quotes the person you ignored.

    I get it. People are sick of staying home , whatever get over it. The last thing the US needed to do was reopen everything as if it were completley safe.
    i agree it’s not wise to just trust someone’s word.

    people are forgetting there is an asymptomatic component that people looking n feeling fine PLUS not wearing masks are inadvertently spreading coronavirus. I would have thought this was hogwash but I read an article about cases being discovered with testing accesible now where the patient had no symptoms or were presymptomatic

    I also wouldn’t raw dog some random guy that says he’s clean. Ever since the pandemic, I plan on getting tested regularly. You bet your ass anyone I fuck with better get a q tip up their nose before I take my mask off.

    Is it possible people are getting reinfected with it again after recovering from it? I read somewhere someone saying that they had it twice. My mom had it & bc she has massive anxiety & needs to stay busy constantly, she went out after having it for a few days & did shit , like pick up paint to repaint her interior of her home *eyeroll*
    She said she was asymptomatic, yet she & her husband both had the loss of taste & smell for about 2 weeks until she tested negative for it.

    That kind of shit is what irks me about this whole thing. People are too dam selfish to just stay put whether they've had it or not. We know nothing much about this thing, its not safe!

    Testing might become a lot simpler soon. Dogs are being trained to sniff out coronavirus.

    The fragility of folks who won’t wear a mask is truly breathtaking. I lived for four years inside two internment camps, and I heard less bitching and whining there than I do today.

    Like you, I’ve also read that people could get reinfected. I’m not sure the rate of reinfection though....

    Our society is reliant upon people working at all costs. My former coworker used to come in work sick (not giving a damn about infecting others) all because they didn’t want to use sick days because the manager would complain their work didn’t get done if they were out sick.

    Weirdos.

    You literally have to force people to stay home otherwise they be out denying that they’re sick whilst spreading their pathogens with ignorant bliss.

    I don’t blame them per say......society has made people that way.

    I also read another article about the factory workers (in the meat industry) would come to work sick but take Tylenol to lower their fever for the temp check. These factories ended up with numerous cases of coronavirus.

    My mom is like that too....her ass had walking pneumonia once few years ago and was just out shopping n shit. I’m like bruh! GO HOME she didn’t rest at home till her doctor forced her.

    This is why I trust no one provide a self assessment. I assume they are sick and mask up lol!

    They were showing people on the news in Texas who were reinfected. I feel like this will not go away until full lockdown are enforced. I was watching a reality show set in another country I think Ecuador?. Local law was making sure people were not out after a certain time. Then here you have Target workers saying people are coming every day at certain times to hang out for hours smh.
