My sister had it and so did her husband. Both tested positive. They are both 18-35, very healthy and they both work out all the time. Zero underlying conditions. He had literally nothing, while she had a fever for about 4 days and had very minor pneumonia, she was 100% better in about a week.

Which again brings me back to my original point- this thing is not that deadly to the young or the healthy. Do not need to lockdown and tank the economy into a world depression because of it.

Ask that the old, the morbidly obese, diabetic, sick, and immune compromised to take precautions and stay isolated if they must. Ask people to wear masks in large Public gatherings, and ask people to wash their hands and practice proper hygiene. Why is this so hard?
No matter how careful we are, old and at risk people will get infected.  There's simply no way to be 100% safe.

That’s life. There’s no way to be 100% safe in life period. Have to go on living. Can’t hide inside like a pansy and be scared of life.

I do a shit ton of driving. I’ve probably got a way better shot of being killed in a car accident than this COVID bullshit. Especially in South Florida. Have you seen the roads there? 3-4-5 Horrific accidents every single hr of every single day here. It’s insane. Do I stop driving? No. Why? Because I’m not a fucking pussy and I have to live my life.

I'm trying to say it isn't about us.  It is about others.  The primary reason I'm a safe driver is because I don't want to hurt others.  Same logic applies here.

My parents are older and my father is in and out of nursing homes.  Am I a pussy because I don't want him dead?  It's so simple, too.  Wear a mask.  Social distance as much as possible.  Do it for my dad.

older parents need to keep themselves safe

counting on the general public to help them be safe is a bad risk

not that the general public doesn't have a responsibility, but ....... you know.......

I wear a mask and wash my hands when I'm inside big box retail stores like home depot or walmart or in restaurants and around people. I frequently wash my hands AND use hand sanitizer. When I'm in my car or outside, I'm not wearing the mask. However, I am not going to isolate myself and stayed locked inside. And people and businesses should not be forced to either.

You are getting confused. If your father is in danger, then he should isolate himself. He can do it for himself and keep himself safe. He doesn't need the government to force people to stay inside and shutdown businesses in order to keep him safe. He, his health care providers, and you and your family can take precautions and try to keep him safe. The government can't do that for him. Nor should they even attempt to.

The story might be urban legend, but the idea behind it isn't. A major outbreak in Minnesota was traced back to four bars in which the place was packed and no one was wearing masks. Even the Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association, the state's bar trade group, told their membership to follow the state's rules or else
follow the state's rules or else. Based on their wording in the press release, this isn't a popular stance among bar owners.


But that's completely different. The bar wasn't having patrons throw money into a shared pot, inviting a COVID-positive person to the bar, and the first person to come back with a positive COVID test "wins" the pot...

That's why I suspect that these were parties, but the whole uproar that people are having about the PURPOSE of the parties being to catch COVID is BS.

https://www.ajc.com/news/coronavirus-georgia-covid-dashboard/jvoLBozRtBSVSNQDDAuZxH/

Georgia is doubling on reported cases roughly every week now, not at all good, 3500 yesterday.  Calcd R0 1.3.

I think it's too late but the governor should stop some items as we've discussed.  Hospital use is way up as well, deaths not yet.

Wow, this might be the first person to suggest they're being brave for driving.  Bravo!

I believe he was making another distinct point in his entire post.

On the plus side, Houston positives are trending down WoW over the past several days.  They were the first to start climbing, 1.5-2 weeks before Austin and Dallas began climbing, and so perhaps this is a leading indicator for the other metros in the state.
