176 people a day die from “accidental” drug overdoses in America alone.......
Unintentional death stats (lowest probability)
Compared to the 107 people a day that have died from Covid-19 in THE WORLD! .....
107 people a day so far over 4 MONTHS


So again I ask you.... DO WE COLLAPSE ALL ECONOMIES OVER PROBABILITY????????

I can use infinite comparisons all day and still not one justifies these actions

If the virus is deadly to older people with pre existing conditions why didn't they just stay home for a few weeks?

Besides being infinitely easier we could still have small/independent businesses not completely fold too.

Try as you might, you're going to get a lot of flack from those who formerly used to sharply question the government's and all it's agencies' intentions who now have their faces firmly buried in gubmint's proverbial lap.

I find it comical how quickly people drop their convictions when they're sufficiently scared & manipulated enough.

What is your chance of hospitalization? Pick your poison, either we utterly destroy our entire healthcare system and let millions die. And yes, if they need hospitalization and can't get it you will go from a 2-3% death chance to that 15-20% real quick. What do you think THAT will do to the economy?

Do you understand these numbers and what the impact would be if we did nothing?

It doesn't matter how many different ways you put numbers, people are still going to panic...

The only rebuttal will be preventing overwhelming hospitals... but none of these other things with bigger numbers overwhelmed hospitals.

This is mass hysteria.

Recalculate when you get how many people NOT hospitalized.

We have not had an epidemic that could put 20% of the people infected with it in the hospital for weeks at a time before in the recent era.

If the new claim of incubation of over a month is true, then the shutdown is as worthless as it gets because it makes for one long lather, rinse, repeat cycle 2 weeks, 3 week+ of being forced shut-ins won't fix.

All you can do at that point is let things start back up, let it run it's course, and be goddamn thankful you actually have something to go back to even in a diminished capacity, as opposed to burned out charred remains of it from that shut-in period suffocating everything out of existence and leaving the government & the businesses they're currently cherry-picking as worthy enough/important enough to partner with for production of things as the only ones left with money to use & allocate.

Unless you prefer a socialist or communist prop-up, like we'll be getting next month, being phased in as the prevailing system, instead of capitalism. And in that case, we might as well switch to one of them if people really are more important to most than money. Betcha nobody is willing to concede people are worth more than money under that option, though.

It doesn't put 20% of the people infected in hospital. Those stats are based on known cases, not the total number of cases.

There could be 100,000 infected but still only 2449 per that chart that required hospitalization.

No one knows how many have actually been infected. That data is misleading.

I was at my local Costco Saturday (you guys' allergy meds are a cost godsend) I presume yours also went to, or are going to, organized single-file double lines in? It was VERY effective at mine, though I noticed no one ill or coughing. A couple of grumpy old people, though, tired of this already. One was real good at speaking his mind about it, lol.
Either way, the employees aren't getting anywhere near enough credit for what they've been saddled with. You folks are awesome

I've never agreed with you more than I have in the last couple days. And it's weird.

I work at Home Depot and the amount of people I come in asking for masks, sanitizer, toilet paper, and generally freaking out is more than I care to count.

I had a woman grab hardware out of my hand with a sanitizer wipe. She literally sanitized my hand as if I were dirty.

I see people wearing gloves and face masks while also bringing in there fluffy doggos as if they aren't aware their dogs are just going to drag in everything outside of their homes in.

Everyday my coworkers and I discuss out ridiculous it is that peoole think they are actually doing themselves a favor, and how odd it is that if these people are so worried and anxiety-ridden that they even venture out intonpublic to begin with.

It's almost comical how I have to interact with people who ask for assistance while maintaining at least six feet trying to point and gesture about something they have no idea what they are looking for, and when I'm trying to ask them if this is what they are looking for or at least similar they peer at me like there is an invisible fence between us.

The most absurd interactions are when they come in with the exact bolt, screw, nut, or whatever it is they are looking for and they are trying to hand it to me with arms outstretched without touching my hand. Then, I have to hand it back to them in a bag and they are acting like they are holding a bag of excrement.

If a person is really that worried they need to stay home.

On the bright side a lot of cute girls are home from college who are at home, bored out of their minds and looking for something to do.

I'm personally enjoying being able to agree with people I normally disagree with during political discourse.

Hopefully, people will begin to realize that others are multi-faceted, and that there is more to a person than just their political views.

Drugs are a choice. Getting a virus isn’t. You are comparing apples to oranges. I am not saying the government response is commensurate with the threat, but at least get your analogies right.

Even the flu has incubation periods, depending on what strain is going around... the real question is why have we waited till now to freak-out over similar virus?

Is it because of 3rd world countries using blow dryers to try and cure the virus?

China using leaf blowers etc...

I dunno>>>

Probability? How about this. Western civilization builds a globe spanning economic power structure based historically on a set of religions that dremed out by semi-wandering tribes of over two thousand years ago. Was this economic system bound to succeed forever or was it doomed to failure sooner or later from the get go.

You “choose” to get a virus by being in public. Stay inside if you don’t want nature to give you her wrath
