Time to sit back and accept herd immunity.

And just do nothing? That doesn't seem like a good idea.

Officials from Houston to Austin fear their hospitals could hit capacity in about two weeks, CBS News' Janet Shamlian reports. Hospitals are already overwhelmed in the Rio Grande Valley.

What part of "its past containment" are you not getting?

It. Is. Beyond. Containment.

This means containment efforts will not be successful, which is why "shelter in place" and months of concerted adherence to "social distancing" didn't do jack squat to prevent the situation we're in today.

One more time, it is past the point of containment. Whether you, me or the President agrees/disagrees, it can not be contained. It is happening whether we like it or not (and boy do some people like it....)

What part of "flattening the curve" do you not understand?

It was working, until people got stupid. And insisted they they have a right to be stupid.

Hey phage how about show a graph with the mortality rate instead...?



Now, since the real totals are MUCH higher than whats reported (this isn't a controversial statement), what's that tell you?

If the "authorities" would get out of the way, Americans would just accept Covid-19 as 1 additional threat to life/health, and continue marching on.

After the vaccine is developed, millions of doses will be available for those who want it.

Yes. The declining rate in New York affected the national rate because it was so fricken high. Now look at what's been happening in Texas. It ain't going down. It ain't staying flat. It's higher than ever.

I get it, it's spiraling out of control. Almost like its beyond containment. (like the experts have been saying for months)

A vaccine should be available within 6-8 months, and millions upon millions of doses will be available. Until then, its basically everyone person for themselves

There's nothing left to do. China's lies caused a 2-3 month delay during the crucial time in which containment could've been possible.

Time to move on and live life as normally as possible. This could mean masks, scolding face touchers, etc. But whatever happens, the country and the economy must go on or far more than 0.5% will suffer and die. And above all else, this means punishing china severely.

That would be good. But in the meantime? Let's just keep partying? Fill hospitals with COVID patients so there's less room for others?

Good plan.

Look around you, people are sick and tired of being ordered around by bureaucrats who have very low intelligence and impose arbitrary restrictions they seem to think they're immune from.

Guess they should've been more reasonable and those politicizing this and wielding it as a political tool should've been more careful huh?

When you turn mask wearing into virtue signalling, you can't blame those already sick and tired of overbearing restrictions who tell them to #### off.

I wear a mask because it makes sense. I want to help keep the infection rate down and I would like others to do the same.

It doesn't take anything away from me.

Heck no. But what are we supposed do about it phage? I don't disagree, those young'ns going to parties and beaches are morons. Not a big fan of those putting up a fight over mask wearing either, despite understanding it entirely (given the circumstances).

But when you have people making excuses for riots and protests but scolding the rest of us for daring to go to work, get our hair cut or having the nerve to demand the right to earn an honest living what do you expect?

When people turn sensible precautions like wearing a mask into a way to signify your political beliefs, is it surprising that so many choose not to? The left is so damned out of touch it grossly underestimates how much the RW and a large chunk of this country hates it. So much that they'd risk their lives just to avoid even giving the appearance of supporting the LW insanity, lies and chaos

What justification is there for not wearing a mask?

I agree. "I'm not wearing no stinkin' mask because I'm an American dammit, and I don't care who I might infect." Idiotic.

I agree with this sentiment. I've been wearing one also. Because it makes sense, and I'm not going to let a bunch of loudmouths dictate what I do or do not do. But not everybody thinks this way man.

It doesn't take a thing away from you or me and takes no effort to put one on

I'd love to keep the infection rate down too. Help spread it out. But thinking we can just go back to shuttering our businesses, hiding in our homes and going back to paranoia laced with double standards and this will all just go away is not realistic

It is not going to go away until we get our vaccine. Our *best* case scenario is that we keep hospitals available to covid and non-covid patients alike and let the vast 99% who will not die from this go about their lives (working especially, making money, providing for their families)

I think only a few masks stop inbound or outbound viruses. The ones most people are wearing (including mine) are just puffy cloth with earbands.

This is one area we probably agree on. Not wearing a mask is asinine. The threat is real. Masks when used properly and combined with good hygiene will definitely reduce your risk. Now we know asymptomatic carriers are rare and very low risk (CDC study), but it could even help a little bit in this regard

My point is that so many in this country hate the left enough to specifically put their own lives at risk simply because they refuse to even give the appearance of giving in to what they see as the left's demands even once. Even when lives are at stake.

Not only is this sad, but it *SHOULD* be sending a message to LW pols and voters alike that they are doing something very, very, wrong.

Over the past month or so, yes. Some places have been.

The last 30 day extension of the lock-down by our (IL) governor was because: "People are doing such a good job of Social Distancing, Wearing Masks, and practicing good hygiene, our Covid-19 PEAK has been delayed until June 15th".

I just don't get it carewemust, and the measures that could've helped were minimized while totally arbitrary and nonsensical ones were pushed for the sake of raw exercise of power.

Funerals? Protests against closures? Going to the gym? Swimming the ocean? Bad person!

Protesting for pro-XYZ cause? Good people with valid grievance!

I mean...hypocrites! my lord
